According to Evelyn Golding, Southeast Business Development Manager, “The casino digitally printed a unique set of six numbers on their monthly mailers and sent them to their client. Then, every Thursday evening, the casino will fire up Odds On’s ball draw machine, and draw 6 numbers. If a player’s set of numbers match the six balls drawn, Odds On will write the check for the grand prize.”

Man Wins $10,000 In Free Furniture, Paid For By Odds On

Escanaba, Mich. – Meet Matt Sattem of Bark River. Sattem won a $10,000 furniture shopping spree, courtesy of Heynssens – Selin’s, and paid for by Odds On Promotions.  As part of the marketing for their October Customer Appreciation Sale, Heynssens – Selin’s sent out 6500 uniquely numbered direct mail pieces to households within a 50 mile radius of the their store tempting recipients with the chance to win a $10K shopping spree or a number of other prizes, including gift cards, if the number on their mailer matched a lucky number posted at the furniture store.

Sattem, who had recently considered purchasing some new flooring, was shocked and surprised when he realized that he had won the super-sized shopping spree! According to Heynssens – Selin’s Manager Laurie Nelson, “Our goal with the mailers is to drive traffic – offering discounts as an incentive to purchase. We received over a 2% response rate.  This was our 4th time using an insured promotion. At first we were very nervous because we’d never had a winner before… but everybody handled it well. Our check came quickly.”

Halloween Promotions

Looking for spooktacular ideas for boosting traffic and scaring up sales this October? Treat your customers to the chance to win amazing prizes and cold, hard cash, courtesy of Odds On Promotions. Check out these fun and affordable Halloween promotions.


Spooky Scratch and Win
Want to kill the competition? Check out Odds On’s Spooktacular Cash Machine where your customers get the chance to “scratch” and win cash and prizes up to a $100,000! Customers just select 6 spots on the Spooktacular Cash Machines’ touchscreen grid. If they can find the 6 hidden “spooks”, they’ll win the grand prize, and Odds On will write the check. Award smaller prizes for finding fewer ghosts and goblins.


Truck or Treat
Want to scare up some sales this October? How about running a Truck or Treat promotion. Working with your mail house or the local newspaper, create a sequentially numbered Halloween-themed mailer. Odds On will preselect a few winning numbers to post at your location. When a customer with a winning number comes in the door, they’ll win a truck (or some other big treat), and Odds On will pick up the tab. Consolation prizes may include free pumpkins, candy or a screaming good deal on their next purchase!


Trip or Treat
Get ready to bewitch your customers into visiting your location more often this month by giving them the chance to win luxurious vacations to destinations near and far. Odds On will ship you 40 Lucky Envelopes, each containing one of three prize symbols – one representing your grand prize (the trip of a lifetime) and two smaller self-insured “treats”. Contestants approach the Trip or Treat game board, and pick until they collect five matching symbols, winning the indicated prize. If they collect five “trips” before getting five “treats”, they’ll score a free vacation and Odds On will pay the fare.


Crypt of Cash and Prizes
On Halloween give your customers the chance to crack the code on a crypt or coffin full of cash, courtesy of Odds On Promotions! Contestants approach the Cash Crypt (aka the Prize Vault), and enter their favorite secret code. If someone has the winning combination of numbers, they score the prize, and Odds On covers the cost. The Cash Crypt can also be programmed to award a variety of consolation prizes. And be sure to ask about our hand held number verification machine, which can be installed on your very own “crypt” or “treasure tomb”.
