Further, the user name provided by you in the App must correspond to your name on the proof of identification that you will be required to show in case you are the winner of a Quiz.  You will need to register with your full name that matches your bank records.

We reserve the right to withhold the Prize for winning a Quiz, if your registered name at the time of creating your user account, does not correspond with your name as per your bank account details or submitted proof of identification.

Do I need a valid email address to play the game?

Irrespective of whether you create an Isle of Fortune account or choose to play the quizzes through a Facebook account, you will need to validate your email address. You are required to provide a working and legitimate e-mail address as your registered e-mail address on the App.  Your e-mail address will be subject to a validation process, failing which you will be prevented from any further use of the App. A one-time password (OTP) will be sent to your e-mail address on entering the same in the App. You will have to enter the OTP received via e-mail to proceed further.

How do I know how much time is left for me to play the different quizzes?

There will always be a timer counting down adjacent to the ‘Does Gray Matter?’ icon on the home screen from where you launch the games. This timer counts down to the end of the particular day or that particular week as the case may be, thus always giving you an idea of exactly how much time there is left for you to compete.

How are ties resolved?

In the event of multiple users finishing with the same score at the top of the leaderboard, the time taken to complete the 10 questions serves as the tiebreaker between the users.

If the time taken to finish the 10 questions is also tied, the aggregate time of the fastest 5 questions of all users will be compared to resolve the tie.

Do the quizzes have any lifelines?

‘Does Gray Matter?’ has 3 lifelines available for use.

  • 50-50 -  This lifeline eliminates two wrong answers
  • 2 Tries – This lifeline gives the user two chances before the delay timer begins
  • Q-Swap – This lifeline replaces the existing question with a new one

Can I purchase an additional lifeline?

Lifelines cannot be purchased during a quiz.  Each quiz you play gives you the added advantage of using three lifelines. Once you start a new quiz, a fresh set of lifelines become active for you to take advantage of. Lifelines need to be used before attempting to answer the question.

What happens if I am unable to finish the game due to unforeseen circumstances like phone crashing, incoming telephone call, battery dying etc.?

You are the master of your own destiny. You will need to ensure that you have enough battery life and a proper and reliable internet connection before playing the game. Should your game get terminated due to any disturbance, you will have to play another game. During interruptions like a telephone call, your timer continues to run adding to your overall time.
