B985 Cash Call Contest

General Contest Parameters:

  • Contest Period – April 5, 2021 through April 30, 2021
  • Contest Times – 9am to 5pm
  • Prizes – $100 Call-in-Cash

B98.5 “Cash Call Contest” (the “Contest”):

Commencing Monday April 5, 2021 and continuing thru Friday April 30, 2021 (the “Contest Period”), B98.5FM will be hosting the “B98.5 Cash Call Contest” (the “Contest”). Listeners can register and enter the Contest via the APP or enter online at (“Entrants”). During the Contest Period, B985 will feature hourly $100 Call-In-Cash prize opportunities to Entrants between the hours of 9AM and 5PM each day Monday through Friday (the “Contest Hours”). Additionally, 100 Entrants who register to enter the B98.5 Cash Call Contest contest, will be randomly selected to also possibly receive an Amazon Echo Dot, to be awarded throughout the Contest Period.

How to Play – Over the Contest Period and during each of the Contest Hours, B98.5 will select one Entrant and announce their name on-air. That Entrant will then have 10 minutes to call-in to B98 at 732-774-3529 when they hear their name. An Entrant who calls within the 10-minute time frame will earn $100. Over the balance of each day during the Contest Hours, other Entrants names will be called during the Contest Hours. If each succeeding hour an Entrant fails to call back within the 10-minute timeframe, the earlier Entrant who did call back within the 10-minute timeframe will accumulate another $100 for each successive Contest Hour(s) of that day where there was no other winner. Potentially a maximum award of $800 per day can be earned by an Entrant (computed as follows: 8 Contest Hours per day x $100 = $800). By way of example, assume during the 9am Contest Hour Entrant A calls in within the 10-minute designated timeframe and no other Entrant calls in within the 10-minute timeframe, Entrant A will accumulate a grand total of $500. On the other hand, if Entrant A is followed by another Entrant, say Entrant B in the 10AM Contest Hour who calls in within the 10-minute allotted time, then Entrant A only earn $100. The Contest can carry forward from day to day thereby expanding the overall grand prize winnings.
