Winning HQ Trivia is hard. Actually obtaining that money was even harder, until this week.
Prior to Friday, HQ’s required users to have at least $20 in the bank before they could withdraw the amount. Users also had only 90 days to cash out, according to HQ’s terms of service, as Vox revealed this week.
That means winners like Mashable managing editor Annie Colbert, who won twice (with help) but only in small amounts, were unable to actually take home the cash.
