Times Internet’s trivia app, BrainBaazi gets its first lakhpati

Karan Kumar Koli, who hails from Kota, Rajasthan, is a 4th year Electrical Engineering student at IIT Delhi

Karan Kumar Koli became the first ‘lakhpati’ on Times Internet’s trivia app, BrainBaazi.

BrainBaazi is a live video trivia show where users who answer 11 questions correctly, split the prize money among themselves. 194 of the total 2,63,492 participants got all the 11 questions right and shared Rs. 1 lakh among themselves. However this time the show did not end here like it always does.

The mobile app introduced a new format for all the ‘winners’ with an additional prize money of Rs. 1 lakh. The questions continued till either all but one, were eliminated or if all the remaining users got the last question wrong. Thus, the prize money of Rs. 1 lakh would either be rewarded to the one person who answered all the questions correctly or split among the people who answered all but the last question correctly.

It took 26 questions to finally whittle down 2,63,492 participants at the beginning of the show to arrive at the winner - ‘angelpriya69’ i.e. Karan’s username on the app. Karan who hails from Kota, Rajasthan is a 4th year Electrical Engineering student at IIT Delhi. He has been playing BrainBaazi for the last two months.
Launched in February 2018, BrainBaazi is available on Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
Gautam Sinha, CEO, Times Internet, stated, “BrainBaazi’s success is attributed to the strong quizzing culture prevalent across the country. We wanted to celebrate and reward avid quizzers who are always reading, learning and exploring the world around them. We will be launching many more innovative formats in the future which will entertain our ‘Baazigars’ in new, interesting ways.”
