Instructions on How to Play
Create a username and password – you will need to use this to login each time you play to save and track your progress
You will receive Clue 1 each Monday during the Sweepstakes that will contain information leading you to my first location of the week
Based on the clue, type in the name of the location in the search field where you think I am (i.e. Newark Airport) or the address
If you see the Ricola Mystery Cougher logo on the map, you have guessed the correct location! If there is no Ricola Mystery Cougher logo, you did not find me and should try again using different search terms or by adjusting the zoom level on the left side of the map
Once you have found the Ricola Mystery Cougher logo, click on it and follow the instructions to receive the next clue for the week – you will receive a total of 3 clues per week for 3 locations
When you have correctly found all three locations for the week by Sunday at 11:59:59 pm ET of that week, click the Ricola Mystery Cougher logo to be entered into the weekly sweepstakes drawing for a chance to win $1,000. Correctly find all three locations for a week at any time during the Sweepstakes to be entered for a chance to win the Grand Prize of up to $1,000,000!
