The Tanana River officially went out today (May 26th) at 10:53PM, Alaska Standard Time. According to the folks at the Nenana Ice Classic this year winners will share a jackpot worth $303,895. In the 92 years since that first guess more than $10 million in prize money has been paid to lucky (or talented) guessers.
What began in 1917 as a group of Alaska Railroad employees wagering on when the ice in the Nenana River would go out has turned into an annual event that draws curious visitors and would-be Ice Classic winners from across Alaska and around the world.

A wooden tripod is erected on the ice, roughly 300′ feet from shore with a trip wire attached to a clock that will record the very second the ice in the Nenana River gives way.
