Operator will use its “Thumbs up” concept to drive brand awareness and showcase its USPs to players in the fast-growing market

PlayUZU, the Spanish language version of the award-wining PlayOJO online casino powered by SkillOnNet, has launched a major TV and digital advertising campaign in Mexico having debuted in the market late last year.

The campaign will be based on the same “Thumbs up” concept that PlayOJO has used in other markets such as the UK and Spain. It features a hero character who is thrilled to have found a fair, transparent online casino for the first time and he conveys this with a giant thumbs up.

While walking through a vibrant city, he finds other people that have also discovered the fun and fair PlayUZU experience, and they also give a big thumbs up.

The disruptive positioning and brand proposition is summed up in the tag line, “The transparent casino”. PlayUZU is the only casino in Mexico that never imposes wagering requirements meaning that all winnings, including those from free spins and bonuses, are for the player to keep.

The other major PlayUZU USP is that players receive money back on all bets whether they win or lose, and this money is credited to the player’s account in real-time. They then have to option to wager that money or to withdraw it as cash.

The campaign will run across television including standard ads as well as integrations in content in some of the most popular TV shows in the country and is expected to reach a 20% share of voice.

In addition to TV, the ads will run extensively across the wider digital ecosystem. This includes Google Search, social media, programmatic, native ads and media influencers to ensure the furthest possible reach among PlayUZU’s target audience.

Helena Rico, PlayUZU’s Head of Marketing for Spain and LatAm, said: “We´re very excited to finally take this step forward in Mexico and to showcase our presence in the market across TV and other digital media channels.

“We believe the campaign will allow us to compete equally with other casino operators that have been in the market for much longer than us.

“Our disruptive positioning based on always giving out rewards as real cash together with a powerful campaign will put PlayUZU top of mind, driving Mexican players to try our incredible brand and casino for the very first time.”
