If a red balloon lands in your back garden in the next few days, you could be in the money.

Nine hundred and ninety-nine helium balloons were released from a secret location in Yorkshire earlier today, 200 of which contain £5 notes.

And one golden balloon is carrying £250 in cash inside it.

The stunt was arranged by online casino LeoVegas.com to celebrate its first year of trading in the UK and the launch of its new TV advert.

Although the balloons have not been tracked, they could travel for up to 15 hours before landing which means the potential ‘drop zone’ could be anywhere in Northamptonshire.

UK country manager at LeoVegas.com Shenaly Amin said: “LeoVegas.com brings the thrills of the Vegas Strip direct to your mobile and we wanted to extend that even further by giving everyone the chance of finding some extra cash to celebrate our launch.

“We’d encourage people in Northamptonshire to keep their eyes peeled for balloons floating down from the sky today!

“We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our anniversary and new TV advert than by sharing our success with the nation.”

If you’re lucky enough to find a winning balloon tweet a photo of yourself with the prize to @LeoVegasUK with the hashtag #FlyingHigh.
