Spark week is something that Upland has almost on a monthly basis. These weeks give players an opportunity to obtain more spark through different activities. Spark is a very important resource in Upland that enables you to construct non living objects – homes, outdoor decor for your properties, cars, and more in the future. Spark will also be the resource required to power your car. Learn more about spark by reading this page, or by checking out our YouTube playlist that describes everything about spark. Take the Upland Guide quiz to test your knowledge.
To find out when spark week is, check out Upland’s events calendar. In addition, watch this quick video to find out how to access this page through the game itself.
During the spark week you can expect to find bonus spark for leveling up your status, a general sale for spark, and special sparked up treasure hunts. In addition to this, you can also expect to find other contests that provide winners with spark or other bonuses. Continue reading to learn more or watch the video below.
As of November 2022 players will be required to verify their identity (commonly called KYC, or know your customer) in order to receive spark through many of these activities that provide you with spark. Read more here as to how to begin the verification process and other activities in Upland that require this KYC process.
As of July 2022 during spark up treasure hunting, the double riot mode bonuses will not be enables for these specific hunts.
During spark week, Upland has a spark sale in the Upland Store. It is important to note that spark is sold only for USD and not UPX. The sale is limited, and you can buy anywhere from 0.05 spark for $30 (at a rate of $600/spark) up to 1 spark for $460. The sale has different quantities of each amount for sale, and the sale is not first come first serve. Watch this video to learn how to register and how the sale works.
Level up spark bonus
Leveling up to the next status in the game - even becoming an Uplander will grant you spark. Normally players who become Uplanders or Pros do not receive any spark when graduating to the next level in the Metaverse. If you are close to the status, it might make sense to either sell a property to get you to the next level, or maybe even put in a small amount of money in order to ensure you receive the bonus spark.

Sparked up treasure hunts
During the spark week, there are special sparked up treasure hunts, where all the treasures have spark! This is an excellent way to earn spark, but you will have to be quite good at treasure hunting. The competition for these treasure chests is higher than a regular day due to the rewards that they offer. You can expect the treasures to be found within 60 seconds, so it is best to practice beforehand. If you are new to treasure hunting, make sure to read about it here before you begin.
The rewards for the spark treasures vary depending on the city tier. The treasure hunting tier does not always correlate to the actual city tier. You can find a list of city treasure hunting tiers on this page.
Below is an example of the amount of spark that can be found in spark treasures. Don't forget that if you are hunting with lots of players at the same time, it is possible for these rewards to be doubled when in riot mode! After finding a treasure you have a cool down period of 3 hours so that one player doesn't find all the treasures.
