Treasure Hunter - Summer Raffle

Bring the beach to Lumbridge Crater and pick up some unique prizes this weekend – including a baby tortoise pet, an animated sand cape and a tradeable crab transmogrification hat!


How to Enter the Raffle

From 00:00 UTC on 25th June until 23:59 UTC on 28th June, you can get mystery boxes by bringing buckets of sand to Reyna in Lumbridge Crater, through daily challenges, or on Treasure Hunter.

Opening mystery boxes gives you a chance to win a prize token, which can be clicked and redeemed for any of five unique prizes:

  • Sand cape – complete with cascading animation
  • Baby tortoise – a super-cute follower pet
  • Bucket & spade – melee weapon and shield overrides
  • Coconut hat – head override
  • Sandcastle loot beam

Please Note

The sand cape will be changed in Monday's game update to make the cascading sand effect clearer.

You can see both versions of the cape - as well as the turtle pet - in the Preview section below, or over on our Vine channel.

If you don't get a token upon opening a mystery box, you'll still get a consolation prize: a stack of water balloons, a royal battleship kit, a huge prismatic star or lamp, or a medium cash bag.

Please note that water balloons are the only consolation prize available to Ironman players.

Reyna will give you a mystery box when you bring eight buckets of sand to her, up to three times a day. With your first one, she'll also give you a beach party ticket. Keep hold of this – when the Lumbridge Crater Beach Party starts next week, you can exchange it for a goody bag!

You can get up to two boxes per day through daily challenges, and you can win more on Treasure Hunter.

On the 28th June and for two weeks after, you have the opportunity to claim a big mystery box from Reyna for every regular mystery box you've opened (including any you open on the 28th).

Each one gives you a chance to win the raffle's star prize – a crab transmogrification hat. This sought-after piece of summer headwear is tradeable, until a photo is taken while wearing it.

Crab Hat

Consolation prizes for big mystery boxes are the same as for the regular ones.


Enjoy!

Get ready to soak up the summer sun in the beach party of the year. Have fun, and let us know your feedback over on the forums!

What is Treasure Hunter?

Treasure Hunter is a minigame – playable from within RuneScape - where players use Keys to claim in-game items as prizes. These range from useful resources to rare weapons and exclusive gear.

Playing Treasure Hunter is simple – click the treasure chest icon that pops up when you log in. If you've not played before, just follow the on-screen guide.

Everyone gets at least one Key per day, and RuneScape members get two. You can earn more Keys while playing the game, or stock up by redeeming Bonds.

If you'd like more, you can also buy Keys on the website, or by clicking 'Buy Keys' within the Treasure Hunter interface in-game.
