Play at any time

You can start playing online at any time and solve previous weeks' clues – you won't be eligible for past weekly prizes anymore, but you will be able to compete for the grand prize.


Everybody loves a treasure hunt – especially when the treasure is cash.

In this case, the treasure is a million bucks, hidden in rhyming clues in this year’s Finders Keepers competition.

This week, the sixth of the competition, is the final chance to play and share in R1-million in prizes. And it's not too late to start playing – you can still solve the clues for previous weeks on the Finders Keepers website to stand a chance of winning the grand prize of R700,000 in cash!

This year’s quest — a joint effort between the Sunday Times and sponsors SPAR — uses clues to guide our readers on a virtual journey around South Africa.

We spent weeks driving the routes to see what’s out there and if the routes work, and have rediscovered some amazing things.

Every Sunday for six weeks we have published a beautiful illustration containing that week's riddle in the Sunday Times or online at

Using the illustration, solve the clue in the riddle and then submit your answers online — or by USSD if you don’t have an internet connection.

The grand prize is R700,000. There is also a R40,000 weekly cash prize along with an extra R10,000 prize from SPAR every week if you buy a specific product hidden in the illustration or revealed on the Finders Keepers website.

There is plenty to discover out there. If you can find it, you can keep it. And remember this: enjoy the journey.
