The dream of playing Tetris for hard-earned cash is no longer a fantasy.
Tetris mobile app publisher N3TWORK announced that it’s adding a live game show feature through the app.
The show, ‘Tetris Primetime,’ is hosted by actor Millen Baird every night at 7:30 PM ET. The nightly competition will hand out $5,000 USD (about $6,800 CAD), which works out to an annual total of $1 million USD (about $1.35 million CAD).
N3TWORK’s mobile Tetris app launched back in January, which was after EA shut down its own mobile Tetris game.
According to N3TWORK, games will take place at 7:30pm in the time zone of the closest “anchor city” to the player. Currently, these anchors are Auckland, New Zealand, Perth, Australia, Moscow, Berlin, London, New York City and Los Angeles. Keep this in mind if you’re a Canadian looking to play.
That’s not the only addition to the app; the publisher is also looking to add a 100-player battle royale mode, a solo marathon mode and a new “together” mode.
