Payday 3: Londoners Follow The Money To Win A Month's Salary

A Payday 3 challenge saw Londoners take their chance at winning a "month's average salary."
Payday 3: Londoners Follow The Money To Win A Month's Salary

Payday can never come soon enough. In fact, many of us are left feeling a little strapped for cash well before the working month comes to an end. Between bills, rent, food, and everything else, a huge chunk of the average worker's salary is eaten up in no time.

So perhaps its no surprise to learn that of 2,000 employed adults polled in the UK, 37% admit that they'd gladly rob a bank if they could get away with it. So, with this knowledge well in-hand, Payday 3 publishers PLAION set up a challenge in the London, UK where the public had the chance to win themselves a "month's average salary."

Over 2000 Payday 3-themed dollar bills were stuck to a specially branded van. All members of the public had to do was "follow the money" to a special location. In under 10 minutes, the notes were stripped from the van and some were lucky enough to pull a limited winning variety, entering them into the draw for the grand prize.

The poll, commissioned by PLAION via OnePoll, revealed that the UK's most payday spending happens in the southeast of the country, with an average of £722 coming out of accounts within the first 72 hours.

So, we'd all probably revel in a bank robbery payout, but some Brits put in a little more thought into their heist team. Some would want Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson as the muscle, Lewis Hamilton as the getaway driver, or even Derren Brown to deploy a few hypnotic tricks on any bystanders. But 27% of Brits thought they'd be able to manage the operation themselves as The Mastermind — we're a humble bunch. 

A spokesperson for PLAION said of the results: “It can be tricky not to spend your hard-earned cash all at once, especially at a time when most expenditures are completely unavoidable." They went on to say, “We can certainly understand the temptation of wanting to rob a bank to get that much-needed injection of cash. However, disposable income won’t get you far behind bars, so we suggest that the heisting fantasy is best left experienced in video games.”

Payday 3 is out now for PC via PC Game Pass, Steam and Epic Games Store, as well as Xbox Series X|S, Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation 5 and GeForce NOW.
