You should now be able to install the HQ Trivia beta when you go to its Google Play page on your Android device. The game has drawn hundreds of thousands of users. Real money - cash prizes. For the moment, there's no news on when the trivia game will make its way across the pond to the United Kingdom or Europe. Eastern to compete for an unusually large jackpot of $12,000, the company behind the app tells Business Insider.

Though we don't know the app's official launch date on Android, you can now pre-register for headquarters on the Google Play Store.

HQ Trivia, the iOS-only trivia game with prizes that became so popular it spawned immediate knock-offs, arrived on Android this weekend.

"I've played this game for over a month, and at first it was a lot of fun". The developers who are the founders of the now defunct Vine, Rus Yusupov and Colin Kroll, promised it to Android users as a stocking stuffer. Have you been trying out the game?

Unsafe wind chills expected New Year's Eve
Decreasing cloud cover, becoming partly cloudy will allow for additional cooling, with lows 5 to 15 below zero. It is possible that the Wind Chill Advisory will need to be extended into Wednesday morning as well.

The live trivia shows are usually hosted by New York-based comedian Scott Rogowsky. On that day, the company registered 730,000 players who were simultaneously logged on at 9 p.m. EST. If you answer incorrectly, you are eliminated. But you don't have to wait that long to start playing on your Android device. Those still standing after 12 questions will split the prize money. The prize could also go much higher when nobody wins a round. Once you've collected at least $20, you can transfer it to your Paypal account.

If you really want to make some money, buy some Bitcoin. No, there is not a single cheat code available for HQ Trivia but there is a small trick, however. The result has been that playing headquarters can be a pretty tortuous experience, with host Scott Rogowsky continually locked in a rictus of low-res agony before lagging out of existence like Max Headroom trying to hijack your TV.

But another way is possible, as discovered by Mashable, which offers a secret way to gain a free life to use in the game.
