If you’ve played HQ Trivia, the viral app that lets their users participate in a live trivia game, you’ve probably wondered: “Is there a way to cheat the system?”

Now Singapore has their own version of HQ Trivia as well. With the success of its first live trivia gameshow earlier in February, BeLive has started to roll out daily live trivia gameshow at 9pm since 14 March. It has been renamed as “Master Brain” and users can win up to S$1,000 a day!

There are a total of 10 questions for you to answer and you only have 10 seconds to pick the right option. Get one wrong and you’re out of the game.

Winners get to split the cash prize of the day. However, if there are no winners, the money rolls over to the next day.

Simple enough, right?

Wrong. Winning Master Brain is hard as hell.

The temptation has become all the more irresistible as the competition has heightened. I mean honestly, how do you compete against nearly 2,000 other users?

So if you’re new to Master Brain or you’re planning on participating in their next live trivia gameshow, here are a couple of tips for you to survive the rounds.

Google Voice Search Is Your Best Friend

The fastest way to do this is to use the Google voice search on your phone or laptop.

How you use the app is crucial. Don’t bother starting with “Ok, Google”. You’ll lose precious time you can’t afford. If you hit the mic icon and make a strategic query, you should be able to get a reliable Google search result with 2-3 seconds to spare – enough time to process and tap on the right option.

It’s important to note that this isn’t a foolproof strategy. Firstly, this tactic works best with straightforward questions that lend themselves well to searches.

The trick is not to ask the exact question but rather focus on the keywords and pray to the Google Gods that their powerful search engine will surface the needed information.

Is cheating at Master Brain through a voice google search unethical? Maybe. Certainly it was something their game designers anticipated and the time limit alone suggests that they’re trying to make it hard to do.

Two Brains Are Better Than One

You might think it’s smooth sailing as you breeze through the first few rounds but the majority of players get booted around the sixth or seventh round.

Outsmarting the game by frantically Googling the answers to your questions in hopes that you’ll get the correct answer under 10 seconds is impractical at best. So the next best thing you can do is to gather a group of friends and pray that someone in your group knows the answer to the questions.

Let’s face it, even if you win, you’re most likely only going to win a fraction of the jackpot, so why not increase your chances by divvying that slice up just a lil more.

Just be sure that when everyone is huddling at 9pm, everyone else is playing on their own device so you can submit different answers on questions everyone is iffy on. You’ll stand a better chance at making it all the way to the last round.

Earn Your Revives

Whenever you invite a friend to play Master Brain, you earn a “Revive”, which allows you to continue playing even when you get a question wrong.

They’re applied automatically and can only be used once per game. You can also keep a look out on their Facebook page to see how you can earn a free revive.

Master Brain’s Biggest Ever Cash Prize

What if we tell you that you can stand a chance to win up to $3,000 this Saturday?

This Saturday, 15 September, Master Brain will be hosting their biggest event yet. From 6 – 10pm at Scape, fans of this game can come together to play Master Brain.

If playing amongst your group of friends is stressful enough, imagine playing with at least 2,000 other strangers at Scape. It’ll probably be the most intense game in the history of Master Brain.

Before the game starts at 9pm, complete these Quest Cards which will give you an edge for the Master Brain game. All you have to do is collect stickers along with hints for the $3,000 Master Brain game from participating booths at the event.
