So ye be wanting ter find the Treasure of the Black Pawkeet? Arr, go 'head 'n try yer luck!
How to Play
Once you agree to pay the 300 NP fee, you will be presented with a game board. Click anywhere on the board in order to guess the location of the treasure, and hope you come up with a prize!
You can play this game every three hours. On some occasions the game is discounted, most notably in the month of November in celebration of Neopets' birthday. During November, it will cost you only 150 NP, and on Neopets' actual birthday (November 15), the game will be free!
The actual game board is made up of thousands of different coordinate combinations. After you 'search' for the treasure, look at the URL of the page you are on to see the coordinates you clicked. For example, if you see "http://www.neopets.com/pirates/buriedtreasure/buriedtreasure.phtml?96,140" this means you used the coordinates (96, 140). If you want to search for the treasure using exact coordinates, instead of randomly clicking, simply enter them into the URL as shown.
It has been proven that the treasure drifts across the sea, so many users attempt to track its progress via reports of winning clicks. If you visit the Neoboards (notably, the Game Chat) you should be able to find a thread or Petpage that is tracking the treasure. By using coordinates near the most recent treasure sighting, you may have a better chance of getting a prize.
There are a number of wonderful prizes you can get from Buried Treasure, and also some not so wonderful ones. In addition to the list below, you can win Neopoints in the following denominations: 1,000, 1,500, 2,000, 5,000, or 20,000. There is also a jackpot prize - this amount varies depending on how long it has been since someone last won it. Typically, however, the jackpot is over 1 million NP.
