São Paulo, Brazil – August 9th, 2023 – Opera – a leading global web innovator – is back in Brazil again for more “Shake and Win.” The daily competition has been wildly popular in Brazil since the company’s inaugural “Chacoalhe & Concorra” during Carnival, with uptake of the powerful and secure Opera for Android increasing dramatically. Opera is acceding to demand with a third edition, which will run from August 9th until September 6th and feature R$ 70,000.00 in prizes.
“The success of ‘Shake and Win’ has truly exceeded our hopes here in Brazil,” said Juliana Psaros, Head of Regional Marketing, LATAM. “We can see that new users are flocking to Opera for Android – first for fun, but then for good once they’re won over by its many innovative features. Very much aligned with the needs of Brazilian users, Opera for Android has free and VPN Pro options, a built-in ad blocker, plus our free and unlimited browser AI, Aria. So we’re happy to please our growing user base here, and win more converts while spreading fun and distributing prizes.”
Users can participate in “Shake and Win” through either the floating button located on the start page of their Opera for Android Browser, or by simply tapping an in-app notification. Players have the chance to win a puzzle piece just by shaking their phones, and when they collect six unique pieces they will learn whether they have won a prize or not. Participants can shake their phones at least once a day, and can earn more shakes – and increase their chances of winning – by inviting friends to join in the fun. Prizes can be redeemed as Shopee shopping vouchers, with a cap value of 100 BRL for each prize.
Opera has again partnered with the popular marketplace Shopee so that winners can purchase their favorite items on the platform. Whether it’s finding the right gift for Father’s Day, looking for cozy new winter outfits, or buying anything else that might catch the eye, the vouchers can make users’ online shopping experience cheaper and even more enjoyable.
The “Shake and Win” campaign is available for users of Opera for Android, a powerful and secure mobile browser that enables users to explore the web with blazing speed and safety. The company’s flagship platform for mobile boasts a range of user-friendly features such as free VPN and VPN Pro services, a native crypto wallet, and a built-in ad blocker – making it the perfect browser for those who seek a seamless and secure browsing experience.
Opera for Android additionally now features Opera’s free, unlimited AI tool, Aria. Aria allows users to enhance their creativity and productivity by harnessing the power of AI. Connected to OpenAI’s GPT technology, Aria is further enhanced by live results from the web. As an expert in both web navigation and browser functions, Aria facilitates AI collaboration in tasks such as information retrieval, text or code generation, and product inquiries.
And for football fans, Opera’s Live Scores feature allows users to follow the latest scores and statistics from their favorite teams and leagues, so they can stay right on top of the action from anywhere. “Shake and Win” will also be accessible from Opera Mini, Opera for Android’s lightweight, data-friendly sibling.
