Council's plea for people 'not to trample plants' after YouTuber's £10,000 treasure hunt stunt in Sunderland park
Sunderland Council have asked people not to ‘trample’ on flower beds following a YouTube stunt where a ‘golden ticket’ worth up to £5,000 was hidden in a park.
Sunderland City Council has asked people not to trample on plants after YouTuber JaackMaate hid a golden ticket worth up to £5,000 in Mowbray Park.
The YouTuber placed golden tickets in every city in England including Sunderland, Newcastle and Durham for viewers to win a share of £10,000.
Council bosses are now asking residents not to ruin flower beds in a bid to find the prize in Mowbray Park after the ticket was found this week.
YouTuber, Jack Dean who is known online as JaackMaate travelled the country to place tickets in parks across England before uploading a video with snippets of the exact locations where tickets were hidden.
All 45 tickets guaranteed winners £50 but viewers who found five tickets were in with a chance of winning £500.
Jack, who is from Norwich also placed one ‘random’ golden ticket where the ticket finder would win £5,000.
In a statement online on Friday, May 21, Sunderland City Council said: “The golden ticket claimed to have been hidden in Mowbray Park by JaackMaate has indeed been found.
"Therefore we would ask people not to visit the park in attempts to locate it and please do not trample on our lovely flower beds which have just been lovingly planted by our teams.”
On Friday, Mr Dean told fans on twitter that 40 had been found and claimed so far.
