As part of their National Burrito Day celebration, Chipotle is teaming up with Bitcoin for their promotion, “Chipotle Burritos or Bitcoin” to allow contestants a chance to win a free burrito, $500 in Bitcoin, or $25,000 in Bitcoin from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday.

To enter, go to and fill out your name and email then click “submit.” After that, contestants have to guess the six digit numeric password on the keypad. Each entrant will receive up to ten chances to play the game.

 If it is not the winning combination, a message will appear on-screen inviting the contestant to try again and will let the contestant know how many tries are left. Entrants will receive up to ten chances to win. 

If it is a winning combination, the on-screen message will tell the contestant how to claim their prize, and no more plays will be available to them. Contestants must be 18 years or older to enter and there is no purchase necessary to enter, according to the “Chipotle Burritos or Bitcoin” website.

Up to 10,053 people will win, according to the “Chipotle Burritos or Bitcoin” website. The Bitcoin awarded will be purchased at its market value as of 9 a.m. Thursday. So, its value may fluctuate between the time purchased and when the winners receive their prize, according to the “Chipotle Burritos or Bitcoin website.”
