WZNF’s Birthday Bonus game will begin September 20, 2018 and last until at least November 14 or until someone wins the grand prize ($10,000), whichever comes first.

How the game is played:

  1. Each weekday at 7:30am and 4:30 pm WZNF will announce a month.
  2. The 10th caller born in that month wins $100.
  3. The station will then announce a date between 1 and 31, depending on the month. If caller was born on that day of the month, he/she wins $1000 instead. If not, caller keeps the $100 prize and does not continue to play.
  4. If caller was born on the “correct” month/date, WZNF will announce a year. If caller was born on that month and day, in the year announced, caller wins $10,000 in total.
  5. Winners must produce valid governmental photo IDs at the station address, during regular business hours, within TWO WEEKS of winning in order to claim their prize. Anyone who does not is disqualified. The radio station will, in its sole judgement, decide the adequacy of the ID presented and all decisions are final.
  6. All months, days, and years will be chosen in advance of the contest’s beginning, randomized, and placed in sealed envelopes labeled with the date/time they are to be used in contest play. WZNF staff have no control over which month/day/year is used for any given play of the contest.
