Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

you wind up spending 100s of dollars before you know it .They constantly have pop up s trying to get u to spend crystals for chances that cost rl money,Unfortunately it is nothing like the TV show.You dont play real people and theres alot of shaming when u miss questions.trying to get you to spend the few rewards you get.Its sad cuz i had high hope for the game.

very disappointing.

If you love trivia games, this one will rob you.

This was super fun at first, but that’s how they prey on unsuspecting autodidacts with a limited social life. At first, it’s only 4,000 coins to play, and they give them to you. However, who -doesn’t- want to win at millionaire and feel super smart? Especially when all it takes is a lust for knowledge, and more importantly, deep pockets. It now costs me 32,000 coins to play. My only complaint about this game is that it’s -too- much fun for people who prefer apps that challenge their minds, which are hard to come by. If you think this is a family-friendly game, then please adopt me. I would like to play more often. If you have limited means, stick to the X-Box version. Just as satisfying, and much cheaper.

This title has:

Too much consumerism
