Remember Hidden Cash?
It was all the rage a few years back, starting with a wildly entertaining scavenger hunt to find hidden money in San Francisco. Soon, similar hunts popped up in cities throughout the U.S.
Well, Hidden Cash is back, baby. And it’s hitting the 305 on Wednesday.
Thanks to a partnership between gaming pioneer Playtika and its globally popular slots game Slotomania, there will be a Hidden Cash hunt just for us (and a few other Southern U.S. communities).
According to organizers, it’s all going down at Crandon Park — and more than $8,000 is up for grabs.
“The number one free-to-play slots game in the world is coming to meet its players in the Deep South,” said Nir David, director of business development for Playtika, in a chat with New Times. The company plans to stage Hidden Cash hunts in four different locations in the South, starting with Miami. There'll be $8K for the finding in each city.
The other Hidden Cash hunts will take place in Jacksonville, Tuscaloosa, and Baton Rouge as part of Slotomania’s bus tour through April 17. This isn't the first giveaway tour for the company. Slotomania embarked on a Western U.S. bus tour late last year, hit 11 cities, and dished out giveaways to loyal slot players there, too. Slotomania has been in partnership with Hidden Cash for approximately a year, according to David.
So how do you get in on the Slotomania and scavenger hunt action? In true Hidden Cash action, you have to stay in the loop.
“We will post the location and times... prior to the event,” said David, advising potential money hunters to follow the company's social media posts.
Hey, for $8,000, it's the least you can do.
Slotomania Bus Tour and Scavenger Hunt. TBA time Wednesday, April 10, at Crandon Park, 6747 Crandon Blvd., Key Biscayne. Additional details to come ahead of and on the event date via Slotomania and Hidden Cash social media.
