FAQ Frequently Asked Questions

We recognise that quiz events are great way of fundraising, however with people’s busy schedules it is often inconvenient for them to attend a venue for such an event.


We have therefore launched Virtual Quiz Events, a website where charities and fundraisers can schedule their online quiz events and people can register to play their quiz online on the scheduled date and time, without having to attend a physical venue.


With the Virtual Quiz Events taking just 15 minutes, this provides fundraisers with a fantastic and fun online fundraising event service, while enabling people to play from the comfort of their homes, and from anywhere in the world.

The fundraiser organisation sets the date and time of their quiz event, and the price for player entry. Their quiz is immediately available for people to register to play in and is listed on the Available Quiz Events page.

There are 5 questions in each round, with 20 seconds in which to answer. The quiz events are won by players that answer the most questions correctly and in the fastest time.


You can ‘Pass’ a question, however this will be counted as an incorrect answer. If you run out of time to answer a question, this will be counted as an incorrect answer.


At the end of each round, the player will be shown their current quiz position. At the end of the final round, the final quiz result will be presented with every player’s finishing position, the amount of fundraising raised and the amount of winning players’ prizes.

Every player’s payment for registering to play the fundraiser’s Virtual Quiz Event contributes to the ‘Fundraiser Fund’, therefore the more players who play, the more fundraising and prize-winning is available.


At the end of the Virtual Quiz Event, the fundraiser is allocated 60% of the Fundraiser Fund. The first placed player receives 10%, the second placed player receives 6%, and the third placed player receives 4%.

The player who answers the most questions correctly wins the fundraiser quiz event. If more than one player finishes with the same number of correct answers, the players who answer in the fastest times will win.
