The Architecture

Site Flow

Users were driven to the sweepstakes website where they were asked to provide their personal details and optionally opt-in to marketing communications.

Entrants were required to snap a photo of themselves with the Lamborghini displayed at the conference and upload it to the sweepstakes website which hosted all photos in a public facing gallery. Entrants were required to visit the sweepstakes microsite and opt-in by providing their first and last name, email address, country, postal/zip code,mobile number, Instagram and Twitter handles.

Finally, entrants were asked to post the photo of themselves with the Lamborghini on their Instagram and/or Twitter accounts tagging @sportsbet.io and using the hashtag #sportsbetlambo to be eligible. Professional staff were available to assist with the photo and registration process as well as to protect the vehicle.
