VersusGame Gives Fans a Shot at $1M During the BBMAs


The mobile gaming company tests your knowledge of pop culture—and the rewards can be huge.

The competition at this year’s Billboard Music Awards is fierce, with artists from around the globe competing for the coveted golden mic. Predicting what artists will take home marquee awards like Top New Artist and Top Group takes a combination of skill, knowledge, and a little bit of luck, three ingredients that can win you bragging rights as the ultimate arbiter of the music scene. VersusGame wants to reward you with something even better if you can guess the winners on May 23rd: Money.

VersusGame is a mobile gaming app that rewards you for your knowledge of everything from pop culture to sports to entertainment and food. Playing is simple: You download the app to your phone, buy some credits, find a game, and start predicting to win. There are categories to fit anyone’s interest, from guessing who a celebrity’s favorite rapper is to guessing when a surprise album will drop. Calling something correctly will net you VersusGame coins that you can cash out for real money. The mobile gaming company has already given away $16M to players over the last two years, and are giving one lucky fan $1M during the Billboard Music Awards on May 23rd.

To do that, VersusGame is partnering with influencers and artists like Cameron Dallas, Josh Richards, Taylor Caniff, Jack J (JVCK), and Ktlyn. Each of them will be posting their own game for fans in the days leading up to the BMAs, and include questions like “Who will be the Top Male Artist?” and “Who will be the Top Rap Artist?” On Sunday morning, Josh Richards will randomly pick three finalists from the pool of VersusGame players who will be given a set of 10 award predictions. Guess all of them right, and one winner will have a shot at $1M in cash.

It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to put your music and pop culture knowledge to the test. Predicting the artists walking home with a trophy from the Billboard Music Awards has always been about bragging rights. Now those bragging rights come with cash.
