Big D NYE is utilizing Pocketstop’s unique patent-pending mobile platform to execute the Korbel Toast Life Sweepstakes. The platform allows event attendees to send personal messages via phone to a dedicated big screen while simultaneously being entered for a chance to win the trip. Upon sending the text toast participants will receive a text asking for their birth date, which will qualify entries for the sweepstakes. Those under the age of 21, will be able to send toasts but they won’t be entered into the contest. The drawing will take place on January 5, 2011 and the winner will be notified by a Big D NYE representative. Big D NYE and Korbel are further engaging the crowd with pic-to-screen, voting and video playback.
“We are excited to help make the New Year’s Eve experience at Big D NYE more interactive for everyone,” said Lee Johnson Director of Implementation and Compliance for Pocketstop. “We want to provide a totally unique experience and enable people to see their photos and toasts on the big screen in front of thousands of people, while also giving them a chance to win a great prize.”
