PlayOJO Picks up Two UK Social Media Awards

The online casino PlayOJO is celebrating having won two awards from the UK Social Media Awards 2021 which were held earlier this month. The categories which PlayOJO came out top in were the ‘Best Use of Instagram’ and ‘Best Use of Social Media’ – for its Compulsion campaign. A campaign which features reality TV star Gemma Collins and drives awareness around the issue of problem gambling.

The campaign focused on the launch of a faux fragrance, Compulsion, to highlight problem gambling as the “addiction with no smell”. As part of the campaign, Gemma spoke to charity Breakeven to better understand problem gambling and how it can affect young people in particular.

Together they created an acronym – SMELL (Sleep, Money, Extreme, Losing, Lying) – to help concerned players or their loves ones determine if they potentially have a gambling problem. The campaign also featured a series of videos that were shared across social media.

The popular online casino brand was nominated alongside some of the UK’s largest household names including Hilton, Sky and Superdrug showing the strength of the competition it was up against in each category.

The Social Media Awards celebrate the creativity and innovation that is involved in achieving outstanding social media campaigns. Categories are judged by an esteemed panel of industry leaders and experts over a two-stage process.

Samit Dutta, Head of Digital at PlayOJO, said: “It’s an honour to have taken home not one by two awards from the prestigious Social Media Awards 2021. We were up against some stiff competition, so we are thrilled that our Compulsion campaign came out on top.”

“Compulsion is one of our most important and impactful campaigns to date, tackling the issue of problem gambling and providing players and their families with the support and guidance they need to stay in control of their play or receive help if they need it.”

“Social media is a powerful platform for ensuring campaigns hit the right audience and at scale, and with Compulsion we were able to leverage this to drive awareness and education around the issue.”

“I’d just like to thank the judges for recognising what we set out to achieve with Compulsion and pass on my congratulations to all that worked on the campaign.”

This is the third major industry recognition for PlayOJO after it was included in the 2021 SoundOut Index for having one of the most recognised sonic logos in the UK, coming ahead of other gambling brands and the likes of Heart and Asda as well as winning the EGR Bingo Marketing Campaign of the year award.
