Those who want to increase their chances to win the lottery can also join a series of online contests.
The young and young-at-heart are getting fired up about Shrek’s last great adventure. The green ogre is and will remain the king of hearts of all animated movie fans.

We are delighted to be offering our customers an attractive lottery game featuring one of the most beloved characters of animated movies.“
The large-scale Shrek lottery campaign will be launched countrywide starting from May 31, 2010. Customers will be given a scratch card, for each purchased item exceeding EUR 20 in one of OMV filling stations, or for any VIVA product starting from EUR 5, as well as for each premium car wash service or special promotional offering. The scratch cards will offer the chance to win a giveaway straight away such as one of four Shrek doll pens or an exclusive Shrek MP3 player. In addition, these scratch cards will allow customers to collect points to be allocated to a loyalty card. For 8 collected points on a loyalty card, customers will be given one of four Shrek drinking glasses and have also the opportunity to win the main lottery prize - one-week fairy-tale journey to Orlando (Florida) for four people.
