Seattle, WA (April 2, 2019) – Sporcle, the leading provider of online trivia, today announced they have logged over three billion quizzes played since the site launched in 2007. This milestone is a celebration for the company, as well as for its dedicated user base.
The “March to 3 Billion,” as the month-long lead-up was termed, has been marked by contests on the website for registered users, including the 3 Billionth Quiz Play Sweepstakes for the person who played the 3 billionth quiz. Sporcle has also promoted a series of blog posts reflecting on what has changed since they reached 2 billion plays in October 2016 (see Content Updates, Features and Changes, and New Faces, New Publishes).
