Activation Code Contest Winning Window

We’ve been blessed to receive a good number of activation codes to give away yet again and we’ve got new ways to give them away.  Read  below for the ways you can win or earn an activation code for yourself or someone else!

Our first way to win and the way we will be giving the majority of our codes away is through a simple little randomization contest.   We have written a little bit of code that every time you view a page on the website we check to see if you are randomly selected to receive a code.  If you are picked then you will see the message above with an actual Ingress Activation Code.

This is the actual code that will pick the winners. If you are familiar with C# you will notice that there is a 1 in 2,000 chance of receiving an activation code.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • It is possible that even if you see an activation code that it could have already been shown to and claimed by someone else.
  • There is logic in place to deter cheating.  Please don’t try and cheat,  it’s not going to gain you any advantages.


For the second way we have of earning an activation code in the spirit of Ingress and the Niantic Project we’ve decided that we’re going to do our best to encode several activation codes in the same manner that is done for the game’s passcodes.

We’ll be posting these encoded activation codes or clues to their whereabouts throughout the various social networks that we participate in.   These codes will need to be decoded in different manners are will be first come to the people who can decode them.


We’ll be updating and posting new Activation Codes as soon as we can after we are notified that one has been used/activated.  Good luck to everyone who wishes to play and we wish you the best of luck!

  1. Why not

  2. I think this is a great way to give out codes

  3. I gathered quite intrresting information regarding Joe Philly, Brandon Badger, Brian Rose and Anne Beutten M”uller. I hear they are the souce, but is sharing such intelligence bad? #ingressinvite.

  4. I’m still patiently waiting for an activation code well over a month from downloading the game… waiting to fight the good fight…

  5. What if you don’t have any idea how passcodes in the game work because you have never received an activation code to play in the first place? How are we going to decode them?
