Gold Hunt: SL Game for Sim Owners & Merchants Who Want Traffic -- and Users Who Want Linden $ (NWN Partner Post)

Second Ads Gold Hunt Game Second Life

Gold Hunt, a grid-wide Second Life game for landowners to host and SL users to play (starter packs on the Marketplace here), is one of the main products offered by Second Ads which made me decide to partner with the company: It offers a much-needed solution for sim owners and merchants who want and need more visitor traffic to their land, and gives SL users a meta-game that encourages them to explore the world while earning Linden Dollars. Here's how it works for landowners: Land is listed on the game's online directory here, ranked according to how many coins are on their land, and how often players collect from there. That brings them in traffic and potential customers. (The game now has 15,000 monthly players.)

Here's how SLers can play Gold Hunt and earn Linden Dollars through their play:

Get the game HUD on the Marketplace here or by visiting the game site to find locations. You're hunting for the game's spinning coins and gems, each of which has a varying value in Linden Dollars.(Here's the Gold Hunt player guide.)

Once players have collected L$1 or more in Gold Hunt wealth, they can go to the game's headquarters on the Business Park sim (direct teleport at this link) and collect their winnings in Linden Dollars from the ATM machines to collect their earnings. According to Second Ads spokesperson Amy Neville, many of their players earn over L$300 a day.

I'm totally biased, of course, but as I say, I think it's worth checking for landowners who'd love more traffic and SLers who'd like more Lindens. If you do, please share your experiences in Comments!

Well this is my favorite game that Secondads has to offer . I have been hunting coins pretty much since the beginning and I keep going back to hunting over and over again . They offer several different games that help with traffic and also help SLers win Lindens , and yes you can end your day with a nice chunk of change :)


It also makes sense for the landowners who place the coins and gems on their lands for traffic as it comes in different packs and they have full control on how much they want to invest in the traffic system .

AS a disclaimer , yes I work for SecondAds, but I was a hunter for a year before I went to work for them .

This game is the one that put my focus first to SecondAds. The game does exactly what is promised: brings you traffic to exactly those points on your land where you need it or want it.
As long as i had my fleamarket my land was even ranked #1 in the list at the end.
Like with all games or tools: you sureley have to take care of it so that it really works fine and proper: filling up empty coins before the hunters get angry etc.
What i also did was laying out the one or other "fake gem" or "fake coin" for hunters that uses the area search to look for coins and gems!
I never participated in the possibility to build a clan for hunters. But i guess that could be fun for them too.
I' think the coins/gems are updated meanwhile too a bit so the time when they reappear is hopefully a bit more random (for the gems and gold coin) so that hunters cannot know when they have to come back.
My upshot on this item: i would use it every time again if i need traffic for my land or buisness. Full control over how much L$ i want to invest and full control over the exact spot where i want visitors to look around.

Greetings Fritz
