- Each weekday during the promotional period, 98.9 JAMZ will announce the winning month on air of a new contest birth date (3) times per day.
- At the time that the month of the predetermined winning birth date is announced, any listener who shares a birthday in the same month as the announced month may place a phone call to 98.9 JAMZ. Immediately following the announcement of the month of the predetermined winning birthday, 98.9 JAMZ will accept the 10th caller. If the 10th caller’s birthday matches the month of the announced month, that caller will become the official contestant for that individual game. If the 10th caller’s birthday does not match the month of the announced month, 98.9 JAMZ will take the next caller. The station will continue to take calls until a caller’s birthday matches the announced month of the predetermined winning birth date for that individual game. The first caller, beginning with the 10th call taken, whose birthday matches the month of the predetermined winning date announced for that individual game will be considered the one and only official contestant for that individual game.
- Once the official contestant has been selected, the contestant will provide their own name and own birthday to station. The contestant’s birth date will then be compared to the predetermined contest birth date. The official contestant will be awarded the Grand Prize if their birthday exactly matches the month, day and year of the predetermined winning birth date, subject to verification.
- Any winning contestant must be the participant who originally dialed the phone to the radio station to participate in the contest. No family members, friends, office associates, or any other person will be allowed to participate in the contest on another person’s behalf. The contestant must provide their own name and own birth date. If a contestant uses a false name or birth date, they will be immediately disqualified from the contest and be ineligible to win any prize, and such conduct may be considered insurance fraud and may result in legal ramifications.
- There will be a maximum of (1) winner(s) of the grand prize. This contest and the prize values may be ended or altered at the sole discretion of Gillen Broadcasting Corporation and 98.9 JAMZ following the award of the grand prize. An unlimited number of contestants may win the runner-up prizes. If no official contestant matches the exact birth date (month, day and year) of the predetermined winning birth date, at the appropriate time, no grand prize will be awarded.

Grand prize winning contestants may be required to submit to a polygraph test.
