Describe the objective of the promotion.
To establish the brand as delivering a ‘Fun Experience’ and encourage consumers to interact with it.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
As the main brand message is ‘Life is interesting’ the promotional mechanics also needed to be engaging regardless of any prizes won. Thus we created and built a giant version of a real gaming machine that appealed to all our consumers.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
We made the product a provider of gaming fun. Men like to drink beer and spend time playing crazy, fun games.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
With more than 37 000 participants this campaign stood out in the heavily cluttered beer market. More than 320 000 codes were submitted and thousands of participants won prizes and enjoyed playing online. As a result of dozens of requests from enthusiastic participants our client decided to prolong the promo for a further month.
