WINNIPEG, Manitoba, January 6, 2021 /CNW/ – Pollard Banknote Limited (TSX: PBL) (“Pollard Banknote”), congratulates the Nebraska Lottery on the launch of its Arcade Classics Super Ticket – the first-ever game featuring Tetris®, GALAGA™, and PAC-MAN® in a Big Ticket format.

The $10 ticket, measuring a massive 8” wide x 12” high, is loaded with a variety of playstyles, offering players maximum play value and the chance to win up to $100,000.
