Mass Audience

MKR executed qualitative and quantitative research to uncover insights into motivations and barriers to Hoosier Lottery participation by heavy users – and non-users. We uncovered some basic truths: we all have dreams, both big and small. The Lottery, which represents the people of Indiana, is the champion of Hoosier dreams.

From the small winners to the big ones, to the beneficiaries of the Lottery’s proceeds, the lottery makes life just a little better for Hoosiers. MKR transitioned the results from the research to create and execute a comprehensive brand strategy.

Addressable Audience

We used the research as a basis to create a new Hoosier Lottery – for the people, by the people. With a brand new look, the Hoosier Lottery didn’t tell Hoosiers how to dream, but encouraged them to express their dreams. A platform was provided for Hoosiers everywhere, from Alfordsville to Zanesville, to share what they’d do if they won the Hoosier Lottery.

Ongoing brand activation and storytelling via social channels helped to spread the new concept – The Hoosier Lottery is the champion of Hoosier dreams, big and small.

Audience’s Audience

Through YouTube, Facebook, and live casting events all throughout the state, real Hoosiers were able to share their dreams through their lottery. We created a new icon and a new motto, “Imagine That.” Out-of-home pieces showcased some examples of Hoosiers’ dreams, and videos showed interviews of Hoosiers telling their stories. This was utilized to increase awareness as well as encourage other Hoosiers to share their stories.
