Kiss92 fan walks away with $50,000 cash!

Singapore, 13 May 2016 – Kiss92 gave out $50,000 cash to an ecstatic Kiss92 fan this morning from Maddy, Jason and Arnold's $50,000 Triple Play! 

The mechanics of Kiss92’s Maddy, Jason & Arnold’s $50,000 Triple Play was simple – one lucky listener stood to win $50,000 by simply being  the 9th caller to call in after hearing and successfully identifying the following three songs which were played back-to-back. The three songs were Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’, Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’ and Maroon 5’s ‘Sugar’. 

The phone lines went crazy after the third Triple Play song was played and Shirlyn Poea made her mark in radio history by being the 9th caller to win the biggest cash prize on Singapore Radio.

Shirlyn, aged 39, a secretary at Parkway Hospital, could not believe her luck that she is Kiss92’s 9th caller and the grand winner to walk away with $50,000!

“It was so sudden! My boss asked everyone in the office to try calling and I was really shocked that I was the 9th caller! I didn’t expect myself to be so lucky that my call got through! I will plan an overseas trip with my 3 kids, but the main bulk of it will be for my kids’ education." 

Kiss92 fans had to successfully identify all three songs and be the 9th caller to win $50,000 cash from Kiss92’s Maddy, Jason & Arnold’s $50,000 Triple Play and cash prizes of $100 and $200 were given to the 9th callers when they hear any one or two out of three songs respectively. 

This is the biggest cash giveaway in Singapore’s Radio history, with cash prizes amounting to more than $55,000!

Throughout the contest period, the Kiss92 team received many photos of Kiss92 fans placing their mobile phones on the table while tuning in to Kiss92, showing their eagerness and determination to be the 9th caller to win the cash prizes from Kiss92’s Maddy, Jason & Arnold’s $50,000 Triple Play! 

Maddy Barber, Assistant Programming Director and Kiss92 DJ, on the biggest cash giveaway: “All of us at Kiss92 were exhilarated when we knew that we’ll be giving away a huge amount of cash to our awesome Kiss92 fans as they deserve nothing but the best! The Kiss92 team congratulates Shirlyn, and we look forward to sharing more goodies with our Kiss92 fans! ”

The prize presentation of the cheque to Shirlyn will be held at Wave House Sentosa, on Saturday, 14 May at 1pm.
