Q: How do you play Money Hunt?
At the start of the game, your team will receive a booklet of clues pointing to twenty (20) different sites where money tokens have been hidden. You can travel at your own pace by car, bicycle or on foot to reach the sites. When you succeed at discovering a site, you will find a set of the following three items: (1) A 3-digit combination lock (2) a money token keyring indicating the amount of money you have won and (3) a white screw-top cache with a code inside it. Immediately SMS the code to the event organiser and they will quickly respond with an SMS containing the 3-digit code you need to unlock the 3-digit combination lock. Take the set of combination lock, money token keyring and white screw-top cache with you to claim your money at the end of the game.
Q: What can I win from finding a Money Hunt site?
You can win anything from $5, $10, $20, $50 or $100 per site that you successfully discover ahead of everyone else. The more sites you discover first, the more money you win!

Q: How do I register for a Money Hunt event?
Each individual participant must be registered online at www.moneyhunt.com.au prior to the event. To ensure that your transaction is secure, we only accept payments electronically via paypal. You do not need a paypal account to make a payment through paypal. You have an option to use your credit or debit card to make a payment. You will receive an electronic ticket by email once your registration is complete. Please print the e-ticket or save a copy to your mobile device for sighting on the actual day of the hunt.
Q: How long does a Money Hunt event take to finish?
You have a total of four hours to discover as many sites as you can before other groups do. You will receive a courtesy advise by SMS once a site has been found by another group, so you can direct your attention towards sites that have not yet been found. After 4 hours, all remaining undiscovered sites expire.
Q: What safety precautions should I keep in mind when playing?
All Money Hunt sites are located in areas that are safe and accessible to pedestrians; either fixed to existing man-made infrastructures such as paths, staircases, beach access ramps, boardwalks, signs, handrails and the like.
