Channel 4 launches Moneybags app ahead of new series


Youngest Games has created a new app, so that viewers can play along with Channel 4’s Moneybags quiz show.

Youngest Games, the gaming arm of London and Leeds-based Youngest Media is to release the app next week to coincide with the launch of its second series of the Craig Charles-fronted show.

“When you watch Moneybags you want to grab the bags yourself, so it lends itself perfectly to an app,” explained David Flynn, Co Founder of youngest Media and youngest Games.

“With new episodes released regularly to play for fun, we can’t wait for our audience to take to the money belt and try to top the leaderboard at home.”

Games will be available to play as episodes – each consisting of 4 rounds of questions and these episodes will be regularly released on the app, with one million points at stake across five episodes – mirroring the money on offer the show across the week.

Moneybags is filmed at dock10 by Youngest Media North. The second series kicks off with a new 5pm timeslot and a week of celebrity specials.

“I’ve been very lucky in so much as the shows I’ve done have had have quite a bit of longevity. You kind of know when you’re doing something if it’s got legs or not. When we were making this, we thought it’s a really great game, it’s really fun, it’s dynamic, it’s edge of your seat stuff as well, it’s great television,” said Charles.

“I certainly felt that we were making a great show but then to get the validation of people really liking it, it getting great reviews, getting nominated for a BAFTA, it makes you feel as though you know what you’re doing and you’re not completely off the pulse!”
