Croc-Sweepstakes
The Croc games were subject to various contests to help promote the games.

Argonaut Contest

Back in late 1997, Argonaut sponsored a mail in contest, held by Ziff-Davis Inc. to help promote the first Croc game. The contest pictured to the right was featured in Ziff-Davis gaming magazines like Electronic Gaming Monthly in late 1997. To enter the contest, you had to mail in a postcard with your name, address, & phone number to their sweepstakes department.

The prizes included: 1 Grand Prize received a suede wool-embroidered limited-edition jacket, 1 leather Croc backpack, 1 Croc: Legend of the Gobbos game, 1 Croc T-shirt, and 1 Croc hat. 5 First Prize winners received 1 Croc: Legend of the Gobbos game on the console of their choice, either PlayStation or Saturn and 1 leather Croc backpack. 15 Second Prize winners received 1 Croc T-shirt and 1 Croc hat.

Winners were decided by a random drawing held on December 1st, 1997. Winners were notified by mail and telephone.

Fox Interactive Contest

Fox Interactive also held a contest with similar prizes. To win, people had to answer the question: What's in CROC's Backpack?

There was one grand prize winner, one first place prize winner and 20 second place winners. Prizes included a suede wool-embroidered limited-edition jacket, leather Croc back backpack, Croc T-Shirt and Croc hat, much like the Argonaut contest. [1]
