OLG Holiday Gifting
If you’ve ever received a lotto ticket in your Christmas stocking, you’ll understand how important the festive season is to the lottery and gaming industry. The Ontario Lottery Corporation wanted to remind people to pick up some Holiday Scratch Tickets for their loved ones during the 2021 lead-up to Christmas. Starting November 22nd for 5 weeks, 8 Movia trucks were booked through Mediacom and Kinetic, targeting the suburb of Etobicoke. Routes included both residential areas, and trucks delivering to grocery, convenience stores and pharmacies. By parking in front of these stores, the simple, fun and direct message served as the last point of ad exposure to potential Christmas shoppers, who could easily pick up a ticket right then and there, while the thought was fresh in their minds. It was a smart point of purchase play for the brand…and for those who received a winning ticket in their stocking as a result, it was downright genius.
