Magic Money

Money can't buy happiness, but it buys other good things, which is what has made Magic Money such a popular contest since it started back in the 1980s. Listen for your chance to call in and guess the round-dollar jackpot amount. If your guess is correct, the cash is yours.   

The latest winner is Judy Montony of Lake Mills, who won $286 from Lanette Hansen on Wednesday, August 24. Judy also won a
bonus prize from the Agora Center valued at over $300. It includes a gift card from Kneaded Relief, $100 to spend at Bilancio Eyewear, $100 to spend at Ecco Salon, and a one-month unlimited membership at Perennial Yoga, plus a Bike the 'Burg water bottle and a Farmers Market tote.

A new game starts Monday, August 29th with Ginger Martin. Guess the jackpot and you win the cash plus a bonus prize: a cleaning bundle from PODS© Moving and Storage of Wisconsin, your local moving and storage company. Their bundle offer includes $250 in house cleaning, $150 in window cleaning, and 60 days of free storage.


Here are the official Magic Money rules:

  • You may play once every 30 days but only one winner per household per year (365 days, not calendar year). Therefore, if you or anyone in your household has won, you may not play.
  • You must be 18 years of age or older to play Magic Money.
  • Listen for the chance to call in and guess at the current Magic Money jackpot. It is always a round-dollar amount.
  • When you hear another person's guess, listen to hear if it was too high, too low...or on the money!
  • Each contest runs until someone wins. A new game will start shortly thereafter. There are great bonus prizes, too.
  • Did you know that since Magic Money began in 1984, Magic 98 listeners have won hundreds of thousands of dollars?! It's time you won, too!
