MGM Resorts announced Friday the launch of "The Wild Wild Quest," a citywide scavenger hunt for "hidden" QR codes that unlocks access to grand prizes. Launched through the company's loyalty program, MGM Rewards, the promo includes the opportunity of flying in a private jet to Vegas with global star and eight-time GRAMMY Award-winner Usher, who launches his new residency at Park MGM on July 15.  

In a recent press release, the company stated that between June 29 – July 11, nine MGM Resorts properties across The Strip will unveil QR codes "hidden in plain sight" on everything from everyday objects to some of the city's most iconic attractions. Each unique QR code that is located can be scanned to open an online entry page where entrants receive a single entry (six entries max per person) for the opportunity to win one of 100 high-end prizes.

Guests can join "The Wild Wild Quest" by searching for QR codes at Bellagio, ARIA, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, Park MGM, The Mirage, New York-New York, Luxor, and Excalibur. All resorts will provide clues leading to the secret locations of each QR code.

The Grand Prize include: 

  • The participant and a guest fly with Usher to Las Vegas on a private jet 
  • Two VIP passes to Usher's new show at Dolby Live theater at Park MGM 
  • Upgrade to MGM Rewards' highest tier level – NOIR status until January 31, 2023, and associated perks like credits for a free cruise, hotel stay and dining in Las Vegas, and much more 
  • Three-night stay at ARIA Sky Suites in a Strip-view Penthouse  
  • Golf lesson with a PGA or LPGA player at Shadow Creek 
  • Cooking experience with an MGM Resorts' celebrity chef  
  • $15,000 cash prize 

Additional Prize Highlights include:

For members not visiting Vegas but wishing to participate, they will find other unique QR codes hidden in the MGM Rewards TV commercial airing nationwide and online. Upon scanning a Wild Wild West QR code, participants will be prompted to sign up or sign in to MGM Rewards to be eligible to participate and be eligible to win any prizes. Winners will be notified soon after the contest ends on July 11. 

No purchase or property visit is necessary to enter, MGM explains. The contest is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are 21 years or older, subject to Sweepstakes Official Rules.

"Las Vegas lore has long attracted dreamers pursuing thrills beyond their wildest imagination, where evenings can escalate into unforgettable moments with celebrities, you can become an instant VIP and upgrade to the best suites on The Strip and have the city's best chefs personally prepare you a feast right before your eyes," the company stated.
