    Default The UK Treasure Hunt

    Hi,

    Looks like there is a new treasure hunt going to be launched in the UK shortly, although exactly when not sure as the date has moved a couple of times. Latest video says 1st December so heres hoping.

    According to the You Tube video a box full of treasure has been hidden someplace in the UK and quest participants can grab up to 250000 per game.

    Check out the promotional video here:
    YouTube - theuktreasurehunt's Channel

    Website here - but nothing on it yet:
    http://www.uktreasurehunt.com/

    I'll be watching for the official launch of this one

    Hi,

    Looks like the website is nearly up and running! Although their home page still says "Coming Soon", other pages have info on them such as the LearnMore page which states that the next quest starts 1st November

    Learn more | UK Treasure Hunt

    As far as I can see it doesn't mention anything about entry fees in the Legal Stuff, however when I went to register I discovered it costs 9.95 to participate in each quest and you can purchase limited edition treasure hunt collector's coins at an addition 5 each.

    I'm also curious about that treasure chest in top left-hand corner of the website. On the Learn More page it says

    There is a way of finding out just how much is inside, because somewhere within this site lies a treasure chest full of money! It reveals how much is currently available to be won! Have you found it yet? Keep looking because the pot for the next Quest just keeps getting bigger.
    When you stick your mouse on that particular treasure chest the "Current Jackpot" counter does appear inside it. The initial jackpot displayed is 2,536.52 and as you watch it starts counting up at speed so the longer you leave your mouse on it the bigger the jackpot gets. However, move your mouse away and put it back again and the jackpot resets to 2,536.52 and starts climbing again. If this is the way we are to track the size of the current jackpot I hope they fix it so it actually shows the real jackpot amount.

    I think I'll give this first quest a go, although I haven't registered yet as I don't think they have finished building the website so am going to leave it until the home page is up and running.
