HOW TO PLAY-VIA TELEPHONE – During contest days and hours (see above) four (4) contests are scheduled daily, with additional contest executions on Thursdays (“Bonus Play Thursdays”). KFDI reserves the right to cancel or reschedule contest plays in the event of severe weather, breaking news, emergency, equipment failure, or an event which would affect the station’s ability to conduct the contest as described in official rules.
Listeners may call when the “KFDI Cash Cow” Moo-to-call sounder plays. Caller #20 receives $101.00 and will have the opportunity to play the Cash Cow game to win additional cash. It should be noted that the audio stream at kfdi.com may be delayed from the KFDI FM 101.3 live broadcast, due to buffering, and some contest elements may not air identically on the web stream as they do on the live broadcast. How the Cash Cow game is played: The on air DJ will play an audio file that has a pre-determined incremental cash count off. The cash maximum of the audio file will vary each time the contest is played. The amount is predetermined by the operations manager or the manager’s designated substitute. Once the cash count-off audio file begins playing, the caller may tell the on-air DJ when to “stop” the cash count-off. If the caller stops the cash count-off audio before the “cow bell” clangs, the caller will win the amount of cash that was last fully announced on the count off audio file. If the cowbell rings before the caller announces “Stop,” the caller will then receive the initial $101.00 only. The maximum $5000.00 cash count-off audio will be played a minimum of once during the length of the contest. At the time of their call entrants must provide all requested information, including, their first name and last name, complete address, city, state, zip code, telephone number, and date of birth. KFDI VIP Club Members who opt in (in the VIP Club section at kfdi.com) may receive daily emails which reveal the four times daily that the KFDI Cash Cow Contest will be played. This information is also available to KFDI VIP Club members each day in the VIP Club section at www.kfdi.com. Listeners need not be a member of the KFDI VIP Club to play the on-air KFDI Cash Cow game.
a. Cash prizes will be awarded. Eligible contestants will receive a minimum of $101.00 for playing the contest with the KFDI Air personality.
