If you invite other players to sign up you get free lives or something like that. I stayed in after I lost for one of the $2500 prizes. 3000 people won and got a fraction of a dollar..

My wife is all about this and completely ignores the fact that there isn't one winner. She keeps trying to get me to download it so she can have the extra life but no fucking way am I putting that on my phone. They don't sell ads and they give away thousands of dollars every few hours, how do you think they're making money? (they're taking all the info about everything off your phone)

I'm sure they steal your information, but they got heavy endorsement deals from Nike and Warner Brothers in addition to a HEAVY round of VC funding (I think like $15M).

yo on sunday they had a prize for like 25k i think, any ways at the end each winner got like 1,800 bucks... that isnt bad at all. i guess big prizes are on the weekends, weekdays 5k so individual winnings is like 20 bucks..

better question is this, i dont see any advertising on this app so where is all this prize money coming from?

EDIT: maybe they are selling info to companies, that would be wild, but not surprising.

I don't believe for a second that the guys who started vine aren't mining everyone's phones.

okay i just finished wiping away my tears, theres a chance thats where they get their money from but do you really think they could make 35-60 k a week for prize money and to pay behind the scenes people just from selling mined data? we dont even know if thats the case.

You guys are going to be in line together at the FEMA death camps wondering how they found you while I'm in the woods eating raw animals being FREE

I've never won, but I've played a lot. Got to question 9 once. It's psychologically designed to keep you coming back. I'm sure some percentage of your data gets shared.

I enjoy it when I actually get into the game in time to play.
