Mumbai: With IPL 2022 around the corner, online multi-gaming platform A23 India has launched its latest marketing campaign with brand ambassador Shah Rukh Khan. The A23 ad spot will air across the broadcast channel Star Sports and streaming platform Disney+ Hotstar, starting 26 March.

The campaign includes two TVCs in which the Bollywood actor persuades users to play responsibly while respecting their immediate surroundings i.e. - spending time with their families instead of being on their phones and focusing on dinner while at the dinner table. 

Head Digital Works founder and CEO Deepak Gullapalli said that as one of India’s leading multi-gaming platforms, it is imperative for them to spread the importance of responsible gaming. "Self-exclusion from time to time is instrumental when it comes to striking the right balance. We are confident that our brand ambassador driving this message for us will help us maximise the idea of responsible gaming even further, thus encouraging a healthy environment for all," added Gullapalli.

The upcoming third advertisement in the series will highlight the importance of selecting the right playing XI for fantasy cricket on A23. 

The A23 gaming platform that has a wide reach across India perfectly complements the IPL which is a household name in India, across audiences in different languages, said the brand in a statement. "Keeping this in mind, the advertisements have been curated to reach every household and will run in seven languages - Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil, Malayalam, Gujarati, and Kannada," it added.

A23 has recently built a multi-gaming platform and combined its existing online rummy platform of over 30 million users using state-of-the-art software created on a custom-built architecture, according to the brand.
