The campaign itself also received a Gold in the Media Innovation - Single Medium category, a Campaign Gold in the Data Driven Campaign category, a Campaign Silver in the Digital Integrated Campaign category, and a Craft Certificate in the Digital Crafts - Use of Technology category, contributing to a total of 17 Loerie Awards for Impact BBDO Dubai this year, second to Joe Public United as Agency of the Year.
I interviewed creative directors Tres Colacion and Giancarlo Rodas to find out what makes this particular campaign stand out and what the win means to them…
It’s always an honour to be recognised by your peers. We’re proud of the work that we’ve done over the last year and of our clients who have continued to push the envelope. This year particularly stands out as we’ve won on a wide variety of work spanning from the digital and mobile space to traditional media.
Integrated is a category that challenges different elements of your work. It’s usually associated with work that is more traditional in feel, and we’re very proud to have won this award for work that is very much grounded in tech.
The stand-out factor is taking the idea of a very traditional concept (the loto) and finding a way to make it relevant to a new generation of players in a way which stays true to the traditions of the game. It’s a business solution.

It started very much in the real world. Open Instagram and take a scroll. People today place a value on their own personal brands. Social media is in a space now where anyone can become an influencer, to make a career out of their face. We took that and applied it to the loto.
Beyond ideas that work for their respective clients, ideas need to be original. They need to bring a fresh perspective even if the problem is nothing new.
More great, innovative work. Work that solves problems, that helps our clients bridge the gap between their next generation of customers and where their businesses are.
