Each quarterly cash prize winner will automatically be entered into the annual contest. There will be a new Minute Mystery, and a cash prize of $5,000, but there will be only 4 entrants, each entrant from each quarterly contests competing against each other for the win.
There is only one entry fee, during the month in which cash prize entrants who advance paid. All quarterly and the annual contests do not require any new entry fees.
Any paid entrant who does not win a monthly contest may pay a new entry fee of $20 into a new month, to try again. All other conditions apply. If the next month has already filled its 250 paid registrations capacity, then they will need to wait until a month where capacity is available to participate.
Q: What is a Minute Mystery?
A: Our Inspector takes exactly one minute to describe a case he had solved to the contest entrants via an audio file. Each contest entrant receives this audio file when registered and entry fee of $20 has been paid. After listening to the Inspector’s Minute Mystery, each contest entrant would email their Solution guess to us. They then attend the Live Event, where the Inspector comes on camera to reveal his Solution. After this revelation, the Inspector chooses a name at random from the contest entrants. Based upon certain activities (registering and paying $20 entry fee, emailing their Solution to us, referring paid entrants to the contest) entrants are given multiple extra entries beyond the first one for registering and paying entry fee, to go toward increasing their chances of winning the cash prize.
Q: Why do I have to pay a $20 entry fee to participate in this contest?
A: It takes money for us to run the contest, pay the actor who plays our Inspector, provide cash prizes, and write the Pick Your Path Adventures that are given away to paid entrants. All the money to pay for all these expenses must come from somewhere.
Q: Do I have to be present at the Live Event to win?
A: No, it is not a requirement. The winner will be notified by email should they not be present at the Live Event, in order to make arrangements to receive their cash prize.
Q: Where will the Live Event be held?
A: Depending on circumstances, the Live Event will be a virtual event, either broadcast simultaneously via a Facebook Live session in our Group, and over on YouTube on our channel, or via our website. Paid entrants will receive location, date and time of Event details upon registration and paying entry fee.
Q: There is only capacity for 250 entrants to this contest. What if I want to register and pay to participate, but you have already reached 250 entrants?
A: Once we have reached our contest entrant capacity of 250 people, we will place those who would like to participate on a waiting list for the next contest, which will happen the month after the first one, with all the same rules and fun. The only difference will be a different Minute Mystery. We will run this contest for twelve consecutive months, each contest identical to all others except for the Minute Mystery, for one year.
