PLAY: The Million Second Quiz

Posted: Updated:

"The Million Second Quiz" online game, a gateway for players hoping for a chance to go to New York City to play the game live and compete for the largest prize in game show history, is now available.

The Million Second Quiz is a LIVE television event with an unprecedented interactive component.

Live from New York…fan-favorite Ryan Seacrest hosts the biggest quiz show ever where you can win the biggest prize in game show history!

It's a 24/7, exhilarating game show, that tests brainpower and stamina over one million seconds (11 ½ days). Whoever lasts the longest wins the most money. Plus, you can play along at home and qualify to become a contestant on the primetime show.

MSQ is the first fully convergent television experience, where viewers will be able to play along at home in real time, sync to the live primetime broadcast and get the opportunity to join the show in progress.

Players compete for the largest guaranteed prize in game show history. More than 1,000 contestants will play during the million seconds. More than 20,000 questions will be written for the event.

The competition kicks off Sunday, September 8th at 6:30 a.m. and goes on non-stop, 24/7 for 1 million seconds or 11 days, 13 hours, 46 minutes and 40 seconds.

The show will premiere on Monday, September 9th at 8p.m. ET and will air every night for ten nights from 8-9p.m. ET (except Sunday, September 15), with a 2-hour finale on Thursday, September 19th from 8-10p.m. ET.

Online players who accumulate enough points will qualify for a chance to appear on the show as a "Line Jumper" once the show kicks off in primetime on September 9.  Line Jumpers will be surprised with a knock on their door or even a surprise visit away from home and then flown overnight to New York to play the game live and have the chance to unseat the player who's currently in the "Money Chair."

The goal of the contestants is to maintain control of the Money Chair for as long as possible by winning every head to head bout against the next challenger.

At the end of the million seconds, the final four contestants in Winners' Row plus the last person in the Money Chair take home their earnings and battle it out for a final prize, guaranteeing the largest prize in game show history.
