Nothing will get my attention faster than someone saying free money! Ok…someone saying free food may get my attention quickly too, but free money sounds good. 

Breakout Games, a Pineville business, is offering money for folks today, but you have to look for it. The company is offering local folks the shot to participate in a “treasure hunt” and people of all ages can participate.

Breakout Games will be giving away $2,000 in cash today. They are hiding $100 bills throughout Charlotte. To try and snag the cash, you’ll have to visit their website from 5pm-8pm today, July 10, as they release the coordinates of each bill. All you have to do is be the first to each spot and find the hidden cash. If you find the money, it’s yours. NO catch!

Every half hour from 5-8 p.m., Breakout Games will hide three $100 bills in an unknown location — except for 6:30 p.m. which will only have two $100 bills hidden.  You’ll just need to check their website for updated coordinates or take a look at their Facebook page. You can also text CHARLOTTEHUNT to 31996 right now to get a reminder sent to your phone before the hunt begins.

I’ve never been to Breakout Games, and honestly, hadn’t heard of it till today. Is this a way for the company to grab some free publicity? Probably. But hey, if you can win some money, it’s worth sharing! This would be a fun thing to get the kids involved in. Good luck!
