Pollard Banknote Shifts Into High Gear For NASPL Annual Conference

WINNIPEG, Manitoba, September 11, 2017 /CNW/ Pollard Banknote Limited (TSX: PBL) (“Pollard Banknote”) is ready to showcase its latest products and innovations at the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (“NASPL”) Business Development and Product Innovations Conference in Portland, Oregon, from September 13 to 16, 2017.

Keeping with the conference’s theme, “Shift! Your Game”, Pollard Banknote’s booth will provide an interactive experience showcasing new solutions customized to shift the way lotteries operate in a rapidly changing world.

Pollard Banknote will be unveiling several new print innovations, including its Clear Play™ product—the lottery industry’s first-ever transparent ticket. This patent-pending instant ticket innovation can be used to create stunning designs that effectively showcase images such as diamonds, water, ice and more! Attendees should check their delegate bags for a crystal clear view of this amazing print innovation.

Pollard Banknote will also be introducing Winning Combinations—a concept that merges two of the company’s unique, sales-driving print features. Our Winning Combination featuring Scratch FX® and neon, in which vibrant fluorescent neon inks complement the eye-catching brilliance of Scratch FX®, is already igniting Lotteries product portfolios.

Pollard Banknote has added one of the greatest icons of the 20th century and a Hollywood legend, to its expanding licensed games portfolio, Marilyn Monroe™. Introducing Marilyn Monroe™ to Pollard Banknote’s suite of licensed brands provides an opportunity for lotteries to launch an exciting legacy brand that is top-of-mind with today’s customers. Our ticket designs are distinctly Marilyn, capturing her iconic look and commanding attention at retail.

Challenge a colleague to a game of PAC-MAN® or Ms. PAC-MAN™ on our classic two person arcade console. These brands round out Pollard Banknotes’ licensed portfolio, offering lotteries a full retro gaming suite. Be sure to follow us on Twitter @PollardBanknote for details on how you can continue the chase on the arcade console in your lottery office!<

In addition, as a leader in digital innovation, Pollard Banknote will be demonstrating our state-of-the-art technology and a ‘mobile-best’ player engagement solution—PlayOn®.

“We’re excited about the opportunities that shifting markets and technologies create for lotteries”, said Jennifer Westbury, Executive Vice President, Sales & Customer Development, Pollard Banknote. “Embracing the challenges means that we have new solutions to show, discuss, and demonstrate with NASPL attendees.”
