It’s not a tour of a chocolate factory, but a golden ticket hidden in downtown Seattle can earn you a $10,000 golden nugget according to a Alaskan Brewing Company promotion.
KISW radio station (99.9) will broadcast leads to the golden ticket July 12. The contest officially starts at 12pm. Put on as a promotion for Alaskan Brewing Co., the ticket is quietly waiting “in Downtown Seattle on public access property, in a safe location for treasure hunters to search,” according to the beer company’s website. But don’t start searching yet!
The contest becomes void if you get it before 12 pm Friday so take those running shoes off. This golden ticket also isn’t for kids. Only those 21 and over will be able to claim the prize. Be sure to check the official contest rules before turning over rocks in downtown Seattle.
If you miss the weekly radio tip you can stop by downtown partner locations to get a list. Two of these locations will reveal weekly bonus tip according to the site.
Update: Redditor z-tabris says the first KISW hint puts the golden ticket under a “giant T!” Z-tabris said, “It’s a reference to a movie. I listened for a while and never caught the hint.” Or maybe they are trying to throw us off to find it themselves
Update 7/12 3:50pm: In the coming weeks a photo of the golden ticket will appear on the Alaskan Brewing Co. Facebook page, company rep Luke Bauer tells FAS. “We imagine that more people will be aware of the promotion by then.” He adds, the partner stores with weekly bonus tips “will change weekly,” but the locations will be posted to their Facebook page.
