One involves purchasing a $20-million, state-of-the-art, ticket printing press for its Michigan plant, and relocating the Michigan plant’s existing production presses to Winnipeg to expand its ticket-printing capacity here.

"These are very exciting times in the lottery industry," Pollard co-chief executive officer Doug Pollard said today. "We continue to see great opportunities for our partners, and this announcement highlights our ongoing commitment to our customers and the sector."

The second initiative involves sees it teaming up with a leading mobile- and Internet-gaming provider — NeoGames — to launch a new joint venture called NeoPollard Interactive. The new venture which will enable Pollard and its customers to grab a bigger share of that growing segment of the industry.

"We are very excited to join forces with NeoGames to help lotteries expand their game portfolios and add new distribution channels," Pollard said.

"The strength of NeoPollard Interactive will be our collective ability to leverage all lottery channels — from ‘bricks and mortar’ retail to interactive gaming — in response to how players want to play in our consumer-driven culture. With the addition of iLottery, we hope to help lotteries optimize sales and contributions to good causes."

Pollard Banknote, which has been in business since 1907, is one of the world’s leading full-service lottery vendors and a leading supplier to North American’s charitable gaming industry.

The company manufactures instant lottery tickets and provides related programming, design and marketing support. It also manufactures pull-tab lottery tickets and bingo paper, and supplies lottery-management services such as warehousing and distribution.
