    ‘Oz’ the Lottery Ball Stars in New Lottoa Campaign in Australia

    Oz Lotto has launched a new brand platform Big Aussie Fun via VMLY&R, aimed at transforming its image into a game that Australians love, understand, and play – regardless of the jackpot amount.

    The campaign isentered around a refreshed larrikin character called Oz (a humanized Oz Lotto ball), the campaign injects both fun and Aussie attitude to the jackpotting brand through a range of executions across TV, Radio, POS, Retail, OOH, and digital.

    “We wanted Oz to be like the ultimate Aussie mate,” said VMLY&R’s Creative Group Head, Jim McKeown. “He’s good on the tongs at a BBQ. He blows up the inflatable beach toys. And with millions of dollars up for grabs every week, it’s like it’s always his shout.

    “Oz Lotto has always lived in an animated world, but this new brand platform of Big Aussie Fun allowed us to take Oz into the real world. Oz is a physical representation of the fun and enjoyment that the Oz Lotto gameplay brings, and we think he’s destined to be as loved as he is generous.”
