Would you play an iphone game cause it gives you money?

I have an iphone game that is going to be released in a week. I intended to give the weekly top scorer real money ($100 and it will increase as the player base increases). Would you play this game even if it wasn't too appealing? i.e, if you are the weekly top scorer you will get paid $100. It is not a gambling game at all, it all depends on you scoring the highest score weekly.

Thanks

Depends on how fun it is. I'd also check if that's kosher with Apple's T&Cs.

In the long term, I would say no, it won't work. Take a look at this game:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gameit-win-discounts-through/id899177853?mt=8

They literally give away products every day and I don't think a lot of people use their app thus far. I've used it a couple times (and got some things), but after a while I got bored.

The risk you're taking is making your game feel like work and not a game.
