From April 3 to May 22, LotteryHUB embarked on a mobile marketing campaign targeting lottery players with the objective of driving app downloads. As the only mobile app to offer live streaming of the weekly Powerball drawing, we reached out to lottery fans on Facebook, Twitter, and Google with relevant marketing messages that produced impressive results. With 17 million Google Search Network impressions, a Facebook CPI (Cost Per Install) of $.44 (compared to the Facebook average of $1.73) and Twitter tweets achieving up to 68 times the average reach with lottery fans, our campaign highlight was the 160,00 downloads of LotteryHUB that we received. On May 21st, the highlight day of our campaign, LotteryHUB received 30,000 downloads in 24 hours.

We saw an opportunity, and we took it. LotteryHUB saw the record growing Powerball jackpot as an opportunity to really connect with the lottery audience. The jackpot was in the news, rampant on social media, and even joked about on late night comedy shows. It was crucial the team at Shoutz utilized this time to push LotteryHUB out to the public.
