'12th Man Hunt' gives fans shot at Super Bowl experience
SEATTLE - Looking for Super Bowl tickets? Seahawks fans now have a shot at scoring a VIP trip to the Super Bowl, thanks to local tech company Ratio.
It's a mobile scavenger hunt that sends fans to specific locations throughout Seattle with a mission to complete various tasks. There's plenty of social media involved, and it'll get the 12th Man up from the couch and onto the streets of Seattle.
So, how does it work? According to Monson Tseng, vice president of strategy and business development at Ratio:
"Once on the site you will be asked to log into Facebook, you will then be directed to a page with 12 Seattle locations where you can get entries into the contest. At each location you will be able to get 2 entries. 1 entry for a Facebook check-in at the said location and an additional entry for a socially posted selfie at that location. Every fan will be eligible for up to 24 entries into the contest if they complete all the tasks at 12 locations. It is possible to win with only 1 entry. Winner will be randomly drawn on Wed Jan 29th and announced that day."
The locations include CenturyLink Field. Smith Tower, the Space needle, Columbia Tower, the Fremont Troll, Key Arena, Pike Place Market, Starbucks headquarters and the Olympic Scupture Park.
The winners get 2 roundtrip flights, 2 tickets, and a luxury hotel room in Manhattan. To participate, fans need an Android or IOS compatible mobile device, a Facebook account, be 18 years or older, a Seahawks fan, and a Washington resident.
The contest runs through Tuesday, January 28th at midnight.
