WINNIPEG, Manitoba, May 17, 2022 /CNW/ – Pollard Banknote Limited (TSX: PBL) (“Pollard Banknote”) is pleased to announce the addition of the first-ever, all-electric Chevrolet® truck—Silverado® EV—to its portfolio of licensed properties, available for use on printed tickets. The Silverado® EV joins fellow Chevrolet brands Silverado® and Corvette® Stingray™ in Pollard Banknote’s licensed game collection, forming a powerful trio of brands for its loyal and passionate fanbase.
With more than 20 million Chevy™ trucks on the road today, the addition of the Silverado® EV is bound to excite players and be an incredible addition to a lottery’s game line-up. The all-new Silverado® EV was unveiled at the Consumer Electronic Show 2022, and will debut as a 2024 model, available in fall 2023. The all-electric truck was built from the ground up, and is powered with a range of 400 miles (640 kilometers) on a full charge and up to 10,000 pounds (4,534 kilograms) of max towing. Silverado® aficionados and lottery players alike will want to pick up instant tickets featuring the first-ever, all-electric version of the legendary truck, with a chance to be amongst the earliest to own it.
Silverado® joined Pollard Banknote’s licensed games portfolio in 2018. Since then, the brand has been launched six times across five jurisdictions, with players revved up to play and potentially win a Chevrolet Silverado® truck or a cash prize.
“Chevrolet Silverado® is one of the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size trucks on the road, and is the best-selling full-size pickup truck among U.S. buyers ages 18 to 34,” notes Brad Thompson, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Pollard Banknote. “The vehicle category is entrenched in the lottery industry, and we are excited to expand our licensed games portfolio to include the Silverado® EV as automakers shift to produce more electric vehicle options for consumers.”
