One of the most popular quiz apps is JAM Live, developed by Snow, known for its popular photo-editing app.
Each quiz session, which consists of a series of 12 multiple-choice questions, begins at 12:30 p.m. daily with extra sessions at 8 p.m. from Friday to Sunday. Players are given 10 seconds to choose the answer among three possible choices. At stake each session is 1 million won ($935) to 3 million won. Those who correctly answer all 12 questions split the prize money at the end, but they can withdraw it only when at least 50,000 won has been amassed.
