They chose to use SCA’s PrizeLink™, an instant-win digital game that captures data and increases sponsorship opportunities. Listeners waited to hear a code that allowed them to play a quick game and received immediate notification as to whether or not they won.

- A listener won $10,000 and the station received great publicity.
- “We were shocked when we saw there was a winner. We immediately knew this would be a big PR opportunity for our station. This announcement would really help the station stand out because we are in a small market,” said a representative for WLQM.
