UK National Lottery Touts the Benefits of Playing the Lottery Online

In what has been considered a ground-breaking development for the lottery industry, the UK National Lottery has indicated that playing the lottery online is the best way to go. This exciting new development means that players can enjoy total comfort and convenience while playing all their favourite lottery games. The first commercial was recently released in the United Kingdom.

The Lottery Guru is in Town

The National Lottery campaign has recently been relaunched and it features the Guru – a soothsayer who predicts the future. He does this from the Macgillicuddy’s Reeks mountain range in the delightful County Kerry in picturesque Ireland. The television advertisement is 1 minute long, and it will be showcased during the summer with an extra 5 Ads, as well as a digital version.

These hilarious advertisements are the perfect enticement to play lottery games online. In the first official Ad by the National Lottery campaign, the Guru explains to an impressionable young man why there’s no point for him to know the winning lottery numbers. The reason being: there’s no way that he can get to the store in time to purchase the ticket! The young man in all his eagerness whips out his smartphone and illustrates that he can play the lottery online.

The supposed Guru fumbles for more reasons why he cannot provide the winning numbers.

There’s no denying that something as fun and exciting as the National Lottery should be promoted with a good dollop of humour.

Humour works really well for the Lottery. Our approach is that the Lottery is a good news story, a bit of fun, an entertainment. We need our advertisements to reflect that,” says National Lottery chief executive Dermot Griffin.
