You’ll Feel the Need to Scratch!

July 9 013We’ve been on all sorts of locations for commercial shoots. From our retailer locations to a snowy gas station parking lot to a little cabin in the woods, we’ve been there! Last week we were on location shooting some new commercial spots that will leave you feeling a little itchy!

We wanted to share a couple behind-the-scene pictures with you! We used a local retail shop in Cleveland for the first shoot. July 9 011Think wool sweaters, wool socks and wool hats! Everything itchy!

Our second shoot took us to a Lottery retailer on Cleveland’s west side. There were big lights, cameras, a director and a makeup artist! Everything that goes with shooting a commercial! The final stop was deep in the thick of the woods in Cleveland’s Metroparks. Think lots of poison ivy and bug bites!

July 9 024We can’t wait to see what you think of the new spots! They’ll start airing later this month, and we think they’ll give you a little laugh and perhaps inspire you to scratch! Now, how about one of our new instant tickets?!
