Oddest Casino ads

Let's be honest, marketing is not an easy fix. After all, when people are bombarded with dozens of ads a day, how do you go about trying to stand out on your own? By making it colourful? By making it interesting, or maybe by celebrity endorsement? You can try all of these things and your ad could still be a failure. It's just not easy to fix.

That's why advertisers and marketers go a little off the rails and launch a campaign that is a little weird. Sometimes the weirdness can benefit the advertiser and turn a product into a viral sensation. Sometimes people just drop down with a raised eyebrow and go, eh? Let's take a look at some of the strangest casino promotions in history.

The world's biggest dice roll

The name of the 2WinPower online casino involved in this strange promotion is already strange; Gnuf, but the promotional stunt they came up with might be a little stranger. The marketers thought it was a brilliant idea. The website hired a helicopter to drop a couple of dice on the side of a snowy mountain. The dice came crashing down, as you would expect, and that's it really.

The idea itself is quantitative, but not really something to write home about. It's a strange situation, and ultimately undermined by the fact that Gnuff spent a lot of time before he killed his video telling the world that it was going to be the greatest thing in history. When the video was posted on YouTube, the response was a stern, "Oh ..." Perhaps if Gnuff hadn't pushed him so hard, it might have been greeted with a little more enthusiasm.

Win a trip to space

Gambling website is not the first company to claim to offer a trip to space as a prize, nor is it the first company to fail to meet this requirement. Space travel is not cheap; in fact, it can be obscenely expensive. That is probably why most people have ignored an live casino software offering a trip to space as a prize. The closing date of the promotion has come and gone and the winner has never been announced. It seems that Gambling website also realised too late how expensive a trip to space is.

Win a BMW every day

Another online casino claimed that it would give away a BMW every day, and many gathered to find out how to win a new car. However, it turned out that the site was giving away toy BMW models rather than real cars. The casino may have thought this was clever, but many were not amused and did not see the joke. The stunt landed doing more harm than good as far as the casino's reputation was concerned.

Christmas is weird

Golden Palace came out over Christmas in 2000, chose the theme of the twelve days of Christmas and offered players 200% bonuses for a twelve day period. This included every single casino game offered by the site without exception. It was a great deal and definitely encouraged customers to participate. However, given the nature of casino games and those who would abuse online bonus systems, it is considered that the online casino lost a small fortune. The site was probably committed to the promotion for the full twelve days and was making a buck every day as their losses kept increasing. It was certainly a Merry Christmas for the customers, but probably not so much for the casino itself.
