How this works

Welcome to PaidCrossword, the only paid crossword contest on the app store!

Here are our rules:

When you create an account, you gain access to all our puzzles. We release a new paid puzzle every day at 6 PM EST.

You do the puzzle as fast as you can. The app records how many minutes after 8 PM EST you take to finish.

The next day, we rank the finishers. The top 1% of finishers by time win $10 USD.

At the end of the month, all winners get reimbursed through Paypal email.

Is there fine print?

Not really. To be eligible to win, you need to subscribe ($4.99/month, less than a millenial coffee!) to compete for the weekly prize.
