Direct Mail Promotion Worth $25K Insured at Harley-Davidson Dealership

Hey, auto dealers!  Looking for a great direct mail promotion that’s bound to drive foot traffic through your doors?  Want to increase sales while gaining valuable marketing information?  If the answer is ‘yes’, then you’ll want to pour yourself a cup of coffee and take the time to read about the Video Scratch & Win contest that this Harley-Davidson dealership in Connecticut insured to promote the new 2013 Harley-Davidson Street Glide!

Direct Mail Promotion Using Video Scratch and Win Game

Direct Mail PromotionDuring a week-long period, customers who presented a direct mail postcard at the dealership got the chance to play Odds On’s Harley-themed Video Scratch & Win promotion, “Born to Ride.”

Each customer selected 6 spots on the game’s touchscreen.  For every ‘Harley motorcycle’ symbol that appeared, they would win a prize!  1/6 Harley symbols landed them $5 off any purchase of $25 or more at their dealership; 2/6 symbols would award them a free helmet; 3/6 symbols, a pair of Hustin boots; 4/6, a classic leather jacket; 5/6, a Kendon single-rail trailer…

And now here’s the best part: If a customer managed to select all 6 spots which revealed a Harley motorcycle symbol, they’d win the insured prize, a  2013 Harley-Davidson Street Glide, valued at $25,000, and paid for by Odds On!

While unfortunately, there was no grand prize winner, many prizes were given away and fun was had by all — and in the process, the Harley dealership gained additional foot traffic and sales during the promotion… all for purchasing contest insurance from Odds On Promotions!

Retail Promotion: Hockey Video Scratch and Win KioskTraffic-Driving Retail Promotion

On the specified promotion date, customers who visited the tire store got the chance to win a $20,000 vehicle in a hockey-themed Video Scratch and Win Game.

In order to play and win, customers chose 6 different spots on the game’s touchscreen.  If all 6 spots on the game screen revealed a winning prize symbol (in this case, hockey pucks), then one lucky customer would driven home a winner.

According to Damien Anderson, Internet Business Development Manager with Odds On Promotions, “While there was not a grand prize winner for this retail promotion, the tire company and their agency ensured winning experience by providing a number of auxiliary prizes for customers that found fewer winning symbols… including hockey sticks signed by ex-Flyer and Penguin, Rick Tocchet, a Toronto native. What’s more, the retailer opted to hook the Video Scratch and Win kiosk up to an larger screen, ensuring everyone in the dealership could see what kinds of prizes people were winning.”

Distributing Co. Insures $50K Safecracker VSW Promotion

Looking to increase attendance at an upcoming Tradeshow or Open House event?
Here’s an idea to steal from a distributing company based in Washington state.

During a recent promotion, the first 500 people who walked through the company’s Open House event, which took place at their warehouse, were automatically given a chance to play Odds On’s Video Scratch and Win promotion, “Safe Cracker.” All 500 attendees stepped up to the game’s touchscreen and got the opportunity to choose 6 squares. If all 6 revealed a “stack of cash” symbol, then Odds On would have paid for the lucky attendee’s prize up to $50,000!

Here’s another promotion to consider insuring, either as an add-on or alternative: incentivize individuals to come to your Tradeshow or Open House by insuring an Odometer Match promotion. It begins when you advertise a chance to win an insured grand prize, such as a new car or a year’s worth of gas, if the number on an attendee’s odometer matches Odds On’s preselected number. Attendees simply enter in their “mileage” via Odds On’s handheld verification unit or online verification system. If the numbers on the odometer match Odds On’s preselected mileage, you attendee will be an instant winner and Odds On will cut the check!   Be sure to award attendees with self-insured prizes for any correctly matching digits!

Interested in obtaining a free, no-obligation quote on either of the above promotions? Give us a call today at 888-827-2249! Looking for more alternatives? No problem! Feel free to email us and we’ll find a promotion that best suits your upcoming event. Let Odds On help make your next tradeshow, open house, or show become a huge success!

Casino Insures $50K Thanksgiving VSW Tablet Promotion

Casino properties, are you looking for a “portable” and easy-to-run promotion that can be themed around virtually any holiday or major event?  Then you’ll appreciate this creative application of one of Odd On’s Video Scratch & Win games!

During November,  two casino properties in the Southwest will be insuring a Thanksgiving-themed Video Scratch & Win promotion, Cornucopia of Cash, on a hand-held tablet!

Here’s how it works. After a club member is randomly selected, a casino staff member will bring the hand-held tablet game to the player at their gaming position.  If the player manages to pick 6 “lucky” cornucopias on the game’s touchscreen, they’ll win $50,000, compliments of Odds On Promotions!

According to Evelyn Golding, Southeast Business Development Manager with Odds On Promotions, “I find the hand-held tablet games to be an extremely versatile and fun promotion for casinos.  I actually have a casino property that has a host dressing up  in a different Halloween costume every Tuesday and Wednesday and bringing the tablet right to their lucky “Hot Seat” winners to play for the big money.  The player never has to leave their seat so the casino has no loss of ‘coin-in’ and players enjoy the promotion because they feel so lucky being ‘the chosen one.”  I think it works well for casinos because along with the game, the casino can also customize the faceplate that surrounds the game. For example, the casino property I’m working is using a pumpkin faceplate because it matches the theme of the game they are using, “Lucky Pumpkin Pick.”

Chris Gardiner, Northeast & Midwest Business Development Manager with Odds On notes, “These hand-held tablet games are a very affordable way to bring a “winning experience” to a large number of players on the casino floor. You can award the “Hot Seat” winner a play on the tablet, then give the person to their immediate left and/or  right the chance to win as well.  With more people participating,  it really enhances the sense of “winning” on the casino floor!  What’s more, due to its unique consolation prize capabilities, casinos can dictate the quantity and types of secondary prizes so they don’t go over budget.”

Brent Kelly, Northwestern Business Development Manager adds, “For me, these tablet games are a fun and easy way to bring some bling to the Pit because they are quick playing and easy to operate.”
