  • Eye-catching, creative photography — think stock photos

  • Video — YouTube lottery ads or winners stories embedded right into a post or shared directly to social media

  • Screenshots — helpful images of your product, maybe a new payment method or a how to play image.

  • Infographics — visual information, either super long and meaty or bite-sized and informative. These can be about the biggest jackpot winners in history or what do lottery winners spend their money on.

  • Data visualization — standalone charts and graphs

  • Comics — relevant comic strips or cartoons, such as lottery jokes.

  • Memes — popular memes customized to fit the context of your post or update. This is where you can definitely liven up any page with some fun.

  • Visual note-taking — casually-designed layout of ideas, typically text-heavy

  • Miscellaneous graphics — images that complement the content
