It looks like HQ Trivia’s monetization strategy has finally arrived.
Dwayne Johnson, also known as The Rock, is set to host a game of HQ trivia on Wendesday with a prize pot amounting to $300,000 USD. This is the largest sum of money the live 12-question smartphone trivia game has offered in a single match.

The Rock is handling hosting duties in partnership for the actor’s upcoming movie Rampage, which is set to release on April 20th.
Johnson will host the 3pm ET afternoon game and is set to be backed up by regular host Scott Rogowsky, according to a report from People. What kind of questions will The Rock ask when the game makes it to round 12? Who knows, but I’ll probably be out by question number 3 anyway, given my track record.
The Rampage film is based on the 1980s Midway arcade game that had absolutely no plot — why a studio opted to make a movie based on the property remains a mystery.
Update: This spectacular event will happen at 3:45pm EST Wednesday, April 11th.
