The Google Maps Easter Egg Hunt
The UK's largest supermarket chain Tesco has used Google Maps Street View to create a virtual find the Easter egg competition. In #FindTheEggs players have to navigate around Street View and collect three of the thousands of eggs that have been hidden on the map.
If you find three eggs you can win a 'chocolate prize''. The eggs are very easy to find, especially if you like the game on Facebook, which rewards you with an egg radar showing you where to find the hidden eggs. There are also some golden eggs hidden on the map which could win you a Samsung Galaxy Tab2.
When you find three eggs you can print out a voucher to claim your free chocolate in a Tesco store or, if you shop online with Tesco, you can receive the chocolate with your next shopping order.
