Entain Promotes Staying in Control with Party Responsibly Initiative
Campaign features Time to Pit film with McLaren Racing
Ahead of this weekend’s Styrian Grand Prix, Entain has launched Party Responsibly, a new initiative which uses the partnership of its PartyCasino and PartyPoker brands and McLaren Racing, to promote the benefits of staying in control, whether at the wheel of an F1 car or when betting and gaming.
At the centre of the campaign is a mini-film, Time to Pit, featuring McLaren’s F1 driver, Daniel Ricciardo, in which he stresses the importance of respecting your personal limits and staying in control.
As part of the initiative McLaren’s MCL35M race cars will carry the Party Responsibly messaging rather than product branding at the next two races, the Styrian and Austrian Grand Prix – both to be held at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria.
The campaign will feature the launch of a new internet hub partyresponsibly.net which, in addition to the Time to Pit film, will show how McLaren has promoted safety through the years by continually innovating new safety features on its cars. The hub will also help players check that they are in control of their betting and gaming and provide clear and concise information on best ways and tools to maintain full control.
Commenting on the initiative, Grainne Hurst, Director of Corporate Affairs at Entain said:
“We believe there are lots to learn from the importance McLaren and Daniel attach to managing risk and staying in control. That’s why we think Party Responsibly is a great way to use the partnership to promote safer betting and gaming, to ensure our players respect their limits and enjoy a great entertainment experience with us.”
