New Delhi: Online gaming startup Quizbee, a new entry in the quiz space has recently launched their real money gaming application catering to quizzing enthusiasts. With a focus on competitive multiplayer gaming experiences, Quizbee’s mission is to provide knowledge based gaming experience and cash prizes based upon the user’s knowledge. This platform enables the users to compete live with other players for real cash prizes by properly and swiftly answering questions. Quizbee is a platform, where people will use their knowledge of educational subjects or even sports and movies to compete against other knowledgeable opponents and earn real money in the process.

People who wish to compete will benefit from the platform since it allows users to track their development by competing against others. Quizbee is also a fantastic way to pass the time because there are interesting categories like sports and movies where individuals may compete with others and win money if they know a lot about the subject.
