Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson to give away largest HQ Trivia prize ever
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is hoping to dominate yet another medium - mobile. The star of the new film “Rampage” has revealed he’ll take his talents to the popular app HQ Trivia for a special promotion to give away its biggest cash prize to date.
According to People, The Rock will join regular host Scott Rogowsky on Wednesday, April 11 to co-host the popular mobile game and give away a massive $300,000 to those who answer the cavalcade of questions correctly. The prize is the largest sum the app has given away to date.
Previously the minimum daily competition offers players a chance to win $5,000. Those who download the app can tune in to HQ Trivia at 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. on weekdays and 9 p.m. on weekends for a chance to answer 12 questions that increase in difficulty.
“I’ve been a fan of Dwayne Johnson since his CFL days. Getting to work with him is an impossible dream come true,” Rogowsky told the outlet, referencing the actor’s brief time in the Canadian Football League.
“HQties across the HQniverse are going to flip their wigs when they see DJ pop up on their favorite game show on Wednesday. We’re giving out our biggest prize ever — enough money to go to the gym for 400 years (which is how long it would take to get as swole as him!),” Rogowsky continued.
Wednesday’s game will be sponsored by Johnson’s new film “Rampage,” which features the star going head-to-head with animals that grow giant in size and become incredibly aggressive in an effort to save humanity.
The star has made headlines recently thanks to propmotion for the new film as well as rumors that he's seriously considering a possible political career. He previously said he hasn't ruled out the possiblity.
“Rampage” hits theaters on April 13.
