LANSING, Michigan, January 31, 2022 /CNW/ – NeoPollard Interactive LLC (“NeoPollard Interactive” or “NPi”), jointly owned by Pollard Banknote Limited (“Pollard Banknote”; TSX: PBL) and NeoGames S.A. (Nasdaq: NGMS), has collaborated with Aspire Global’s subsidiary, Pariplay Ltd. (“Pariplay”), to offer a wealth of new gaming content on Play Alberta (PlayAlberta.ca).

The company’s advanced Fusion™ content aggregator platform provides a unified approach to content delivery that enables operators to access hundreds of high-profile online casino, instant win, scratch card, and bingo games, with a single, streamlined integration. Holding licenses in New Jersey and West Virginia, this collaboration with NPi marks a major milestone for the company’s expansion into the North American lottery market.
“We are excited to enter the Canadian marketplace through our joint efforts with NPi to capitalize on the opportunities that the North American market offers,” said Tsachi Maimon, CEO, Aspire Global. “As a market leading aggregator of game content, we have established ourselves as a trusted supplier to the industry as we continue to offer the best content in the market. We look forward to continued collaboration with NPi to supply engaging content to AGLC.”
“We are very excited to work with Pariplay—a well-established and renowned content provider—to further expand the game titles and verticals we offer on Play Alberta’s portal,” said Liz Siver, General Manager, NeoPollard Interactive. “As a dedicated partner to AGLC, NPi is committed to continuously enhancing the technology, games, and Power Suite services we offer to give players in Alberta a unified online gaming experience. More importantly, with Pariplay’s wide variety of game content, AGLC has the opportunity to produce incremental proceeds to the good causes it supports throughout the province.”
