Anniversary Promotion Idea: Pawn Shop Runs $50K Dice Roll Promotion

Looking for a fun way to celebrate your next major business milestone? Whether it’s your company’s first anniversary or its centennial, Odds On Promotions has an idea that will help you grab headlines and turn heads!

For example, to celebrate their 10th year in business, Fastcash Pawn recently gave a few lucky customers the chance to win $50,000, paid for by Odds On, in a dice roll promotion.

To qualify for a chance to win the grand prize, from August 18th through September 20th customers logged on to the company’s website, clicked a contest banner, and entered their contact information into Odds On’s online contest registration form.

At the conclusion of the registration, 10 lucky contestants were selected and each got the chance to roll a set of four oversized (16″) dice, each featuring a Fastcash logo.  If a lucky contestant rolled a winning combination (four logos) they’d win the $50,000 grand prize and Odds On would write the check.

Baseball Contest Ideas: Home Run Derby Worth $30K

baseball contest ideas - homerun derbyIn need of some baseball contest ideas that will increase fan attendance and engagement at your next big game?  If so, then you’re going to absolutely love hearing about this baseball promotion we helped a Minor League team in the Northeastern U.S. to insure as part of their  Opening Day
— a Home Run Derby Contest!

Here’s how the baseball contest worked … on Opening Day, one lucky fan, chosen via raffle ticket, was selected to take three swings at a baseball off of a hitting tee placed at home plate.  If they successfully “hit one deep” over the six-foot-high fence, they would have been awarded generously – with a brand new truck valued at $30,000, compliments of the sponsor and paid for by Odds On.

While unfortunately, the fan who was selected didn’t score the vehicle, they still had an absolute blast — as did all of the other fans!

While winning an insured grand prize is always nice, it’s definitely not all that counts. When I think about what qualifies as a “winning promotion”, I tend to think about factors such as increased attendance, fan excitement, and interaction… as well as capturing valuable marketing information from your fans!  Speaking of which, be sure to check out our Online Contest Registration.

Conference Promotions: Here’s a Great Idea for Your Next Event!

conference promotions - lucky envelopesLooking to add some sizzle to an upcoming conference? A Texas-based company in the housing industry recently teamed up with a building products sponsor and was looking for some conference promotions.  Odds On was able to help them to insure a Pick ‘Til You Win Lucky Envelopes contest designed to increase traffic and attendance to their local “Buyer Group” meeting.

On the promotion date, one conference attendee chosen at random via raffle had the opportunity to select from 5 of 40 of Odds On Promotions‘ Lucky Envelopes.  Contained within each of the 40 envelopes were inserts, each of which indicated a prize.  Eighteen of the inserts contained a trip for two prize, 17 inserts were worth a brand new Yeti Cooler and 5 were worth the insured grand prize — $25,000, paid for by Odds On!  Both the trip and cooler were client/sponsor-provided.

As you may already know, the great thing about a Pick ‘Til You Win-style Lucky Envelope game is that no one goes home empty handed, which is what makes this our favorite out of all of the different envelope games we have to offer.

The contestant just kept choosing and opening envelopes until they collected 5 matching inserts, which indicated the prize they had won.

This conference promotion ended up being such a success that the companies will be doing another promotion, in the exact same way, at their National Conference this Fall.

Bingo Winner Scores $1,000,000, Odds On Promotions Writes the Check!

Bingo-Winner-SlesinskyVerona, NY – On June 29, 2013, Frances Slesinsky of Binghamton won $1,000,000, courtesy of Turning Stone Resort Casino and paid for by Odds On Promotions. Slesinsky won the enormous cash prize, the largest jackpot in Turning Stone’s 20-year history, during a Million Dollar Matinee Bingo Session.

During the final game of the session, the casino offered a minimum payout of $25,000 for Level 3 players. However, if any player was able to cover all the numbers on a bingo card in 47 draws or less, they would take home a million dollar jackpot, which was insured by Odds On Promotions.

As luck would have it, Slesinsky got the final number she needed, “I-26”, on exactly the 47th draw, landing her in the Turning Stone record books and scoring a life-changing million dollar prize.

The million dollar promotion was the first event of Turning Stone’s month long 20th-anniversary celebration, which ran from June 29th through the end of July and featured big ticket giveaways, major casino gaming tournaments, special parties and events.
