Oscar winners Ben Affleck and Matt Damon executive produced a unique interactive web series for go90 called “The Runner,” which plans to award at least $1 million in prizes over the next 30 days.
On the series, one person is chosen to be the runner. He or she has to arrive at six checkpoints across the US in order to collect as much as $500,000. There are also five chase teams on his tail. So if the runner gets caught, he goes home with zip.
The chase teams will get daily clues as to the runner’s location. Each day that the runner eludes them, the bounty increases by $15,000.
Here’s where the viewers come in. There are three ways to get a chance to win some money.
1. America’s Cash Task (ACT) — Viewers solve twice-daily puzzles within an hour after clues air live on go90. The viewers’ answers help the chase teams close in on the runner. In order to participate in this, viewers have to register at https://therunner.go90.com/.
2. Chaser Cash — All viewers have to do is support their favourite chase teams on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. In turn, they may reward you. Each chase team has $1,000 to award each day. Over the course of the series, that can reach as much as $150,00o in chaser cash.
Here are the teams/hashtags:
3. The Social MVP — The most active viewers over the entire month could win a $20,000, $10,000, $5,000, or $1,000 prize.
