Note: ‘The Hunt for the Golden Egg’ has now finished. Thanks to everyone who took part in the contest! You can find all clues with the solutions below.
Most importantly however, congratulations to Cassidy Swanston…our lucky winner!
FXtoGO™ and the Continental Current present: The Hunt for the Golden Egg! With Easter season upon us, we wanted to give something back to you – our loyal readers – in celebration of the holiday. Since everyone likes finding things and prizes, we figured a treasure hunt was the perfect option!
Want to win $250? Here’s how you play.
Across theCurrent, we have hidden clues on assorted pages and articles. Starting with ‘Clue 1′ below, follow our trail across the website to find the Golden Egg. While the second clue can be found on a variety of related pages (that’s a hint by the way), from then on each clue you find pertains to a specific page. Just follow the clue to the correct page to find the next clue, and repeat until you have your reward (that’s the Golden Egg in case you were wondering)!
We’ve also scattered other, less golden eggs throughout theCurrent which can win you smaller prizes and goodies. All of these smaller prizes and eggs will be located on articles from no earlier than November 1, 2016, while the Golden Egg trail could lead you anywhere (and to any time) – so be ready for some searching and riddling! You have from now until the end of the day next Monday (11:59 PM on April 24, 2017) to hunt!
What do I win?
Without a doubt, the most important question. Follow the trail, find the Golden Egg, click on it, and enter for your chance to win the EGG-cellent prize of $250 in the currency of your choice delivered straight to your door through FXtoGO™! Don’t worry though; if you find the other non-golden Easter Eggs, you’ll still get a very helpful reward.
