Caller bags $20,000 in Jase & PJ’s Birthday Balls
The competition is a simple one, listeners call in and if their birth date matches the date on the ball picked at random by the pair they get the cash.
Tim, a truck driver from Melbourne, cheerfully called into the show this morning hunting for some dough to top up a house deposit.
When PJ first pulled out the wrong date, May 16, they gave the truckie a second change – to everyone’s surprise, May 19, aka Tim’s birthday, was chosen.
The KIIS presenters then got Tim’s wife Eden on the phone and upon finding out the good news she commented, “This is going to change our lives.”
This is only the second time a listener has taken home a major prize after the pair gave away $10,000 last week to a player that opted to take half the money to have half the balls removed from the pool.
