Lucky punters have the TABtouch in new autumn racing campaign

Racing and Wagering Western Australia’s TABtouch has expanded its ‘The Reach’ brand campaign to focus on the start of the autumn racing carnivals, via Clemenger BBDO.

After launching a series of spots focused on the start of the AFL season last month,  this latest spot centres on the premise that if you’ve got the touch, you’ve got a feel for what happens on the field.

It involves an ever-extending set of hands which “embody the focused and driven TABtouch punter who constantly seeks out the best betting insights and statistics”.

Racing and Wagering Western Australia’s head of marketing Katie Roberts, said: “We’re proud to showcase our latest brand campaign with creative partner Clemenger BBDO and media partner The Brand Agency as we leverage the success of our brand platform and evolve our distinctive assets, to bring to life our proposition that those with the touch, choose TABtouch.”

Clemenger BBDO ECD, Richard Williams, added: “This campaign is the latest instalment of work delivering on the ever-engaging ‘You’ve Got the Touch with TABtouch’ platform. It reminds punters of the power in their astonishingly long and slithering, retractable hands.

“It’s not just about the laughs or dramatic visuals with this campaign – it’s about creating a connection with our audience, a reminder that TABtouch is at the heart of their sporting experience.”

The campaign is running nationally on Sky Racing, and in WA on subscription and free to air TV, print, OOH, digital and radio.
