RaboPlus game lets you relieve bankers of their cash

15 July 2009  |  7451 views  |  0 mouse

New Zealand Internet bank RaboPlus is inviting consumers to open a new account with cash stolen from a virtual banker in an online Internet game.

The game sees "fortune's fairy" take players to a "boring old banker" who is fast asleep with notes on his person.

The player has 60 seconds to relieve the banker of the cash, using the computer mouse to drag them away without waking him.

Players who then open an account with the bank have the amount of money they won deposited into it.

The bank has sent account holders unique links to the game and asked them to pass them on to family and friends. For every person who opens an account, the original customer receives $10.

You can play the game here.
