WINNIPEG, Manitoba, March 7, 2022 /CNW/ – Pollard Banknote Limited (TSX: PBL) (“Pollard Banknote”) congratulates the Texas Lottery on the launch of its new $5 Texas Edition Bucks & Trucks scratch ticket featuring the popular Chevrolet® Silverado® brand. Launched on March 7, 2022, the ticket includes an exciting promotional second-chance drawing that will see four lucky players drive home a Chevrolet Silverado® truck. Pollard Banknote worked closely with the Texas Lottery and the licensor to develop the scratch ticket and merchandise package specifically designed for the Texas market.
The Texas Edition Bucks & Trucks ticket features the ‘Texas Edition’ logo and an eye-catching red truck front and center. The game has multiple ways to win, with non-winning tickets ‘revving’ up the chance to win one of over 1,600 Silverado® merchandise prize packs and the exciting top prize of one of four Chevrolet Silverado® trucks through entry into the Texas Lottery’s Chevrolet Silverado® Promotional Second-Chance Drawing.
The second-chance drawing prize of a Chevrolet Silverado® Texas Edition vehicle includes a custom package and unique badging to the exterior, adding even more Texas pride to the pickup. Each merchandise prize packs includes a Chevrolet Silverado® branded metal cooler, car wash kit, baseball hat, tumbler, sunglasses, neon clock, and fender cover.
To ‘drive’ player awareness of the game, the Texas Lottery’s multifaceted promotional campaign includes digital ads and a social media contest, as well as a variety of point-of-sale displays to raise the ticket’s visibility at retail.
“We are always looking for ways to provide players with new and exciting games and Texas Edition Bucks & Trucks, which leverages the popularity of the Chevrolet Silverado®, delivers on all aspects,” said Gary Grief, Executive Director of the Texas Lottery. “Given the excitement that we have previously seen when debuting scratch tickets featuring engaging promotional second-chance drawings, we think Texas players are going to be thrilled with this new game.”
“We are delighted that the Texas Lottery chose to leverage the appeal of the Chevrolet Silverado® brand to produce a Texas-specific scratch ticket and engaging second-chance promotion that will appeal greatly to Texas players,” said Brad Thompson, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Pollard Banknote. “We are excited to continue working with the Texas Lottery and help strengthen its scratch ticket portfolio with innovative lottery products and programs.”
