GeoLotto are now offering a completely free treasure hunt game including a daily cash prize draw and instant win cash prizes.
I originally wrote about GeoLotto because I was impressed with the innovative game format that they have produced and its obvious similarities with FPL. However, until now it has always been a paid product which somewhat goes against the grain on FPL. Apparently, this hasn’t put you off as they have since given away over £37,000 to over 1,000 of you! Pirate Plunder is a free version of their paid Treasure Hunt games.
Pirate Plunder (Free)
Every day there is a game that runs from 10am to 10am the next day. For each game you get 50 free “digs” to use on the UK map. Digs uncover instant cash prizes from 1p to £1. At the end of each game each dig is entered into a raffle to win the daily Jackpot. Then Jackpot size depends on the number of total digs in the game but is currently averaging about £55. The more digs you make the higher your chances of winning the cash prize, let alone any loot you find on the way!
Please note: it isn’t very obvious how to “dig” at first. Either enter a location/postcode/etc. in the search box (top right) or drag and click the map until you have zoomed into “square level” where you should be able to see a grid. Just click a square wink emoticon
And, please also note: The signup page asks for your mobile number and address which they do not use to sell you anything or share with 3rd parties. These details are only used to contact you if you have won a substantial prize on the paid version.
Treasure Hunt (Paid)
If you are interested in bigger prizes, and you are aware of the risks of gambling then the paid version looks pretty fun. As well as the higher cash prizes on the daily game, every few weeks they choose a handful of interesting spots on a map (eg. a football stadium or crop circle) and run themed “turbo” games where there is a rush to find the treasure over a two hour period. Watch this space for their upcoming Easter game where they say they have something up their sleeves for FPL members…
