The National Lottery won for Best Social Media Only campaign. Its Facebook page is the National Lottery’s primary interaction with fans of the brand and the campaign was designed to reward fans with a fun app that would not only reward these fans but also raise awareness of an upcoming EuroMillions Super Draw. The app, Peggy’s Pad,  was a fun online game which saw people virtually visit the home of the star of the EuroMillions adverts and compete to win €500 each day. The campaign involved a multi-agency approach. We wanted fans of the page to feel affinity with the brand, and also to play the game more than once all the while raising awareness of  the EuroMillions Super Draw. The campaign was very successful generating a 16% increase in page likes, almost 13,000 players and almost 750,000 open graph impression during the five days of the campaign.
