Error and communication management:
In case a consumer faces a problem during product recognition through OCR algorithm he/she had the ability to ask for an extra check, just by clicking an action button. After we checked the receipt, consumers were being informed through email that he/she had enter the sweepstake and could visit the microsite, play the selection game, and find out if he/she won one of the prizes. The most important during this step was to minimize validation time, to ensure consumer’s satisfaction and excitement.

3. They enter their personal information and stated that they agree with the terms of the competition
4. They were asked to select one of the lucky hats and found out if they won any of the instant win prized
5. They were getting one participation for the contest draw
Combination of instant win and lottery:
Combining the logic of instant win contest with a sweepstake with lottery at the close of the contest was a great mechanism selection to keep consumers interested across the contest period and motivate repeated entries. Daily the prizes that were part of instant win campaign were given out, while all participants were entered into a draw for a grand prize at the end of the contest. Each receipt with Nounou products was a chance to win on the instant win sweepstake and a new participation to the big lottery.
During a 6-week instant win contest, it is important to invest on a reliable winner selection mechanism. For menumenounou project a random entry-based mechanism was selected to ensure the prizes will be distributed smoothly across the contest period while counting how many prizes were available. The winner selection mechanism could handle all entries being received, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
To simplify the process and ensure timely delivery, Pockee Snap was responsible for prizes distribution to winners at the close of the contest.
