The Michigan Lottery has awarded a new four-year contract to NeoPollard Interactive, the joint venture between NeoGames and Pollard Banknote.
NeoPollard will continue to provide iLottery technology and related services to the lottery through to July 2022.
Pollard and NeoGames first teamed up with the Michigan Lottery to launch its iLottery platform in 2014. In its initial results for the 2018 fiscal year, iLottery products generated over $100m in net win, contributing towards the Michigan Lottery’s fourth consecutive record contribution to its beneficiary, the state School Aid Fund. More than 890,000 players have so far registered for the lottery’s online services.
“We are thrilled to continue our collaborative relationship with the Michigan Lottery as its iLottery provider,” said NeoPollard Interactive general manager Liz Siver. “Since the launch of iLottery in 2014, the Michigan Lottery has become a leader within the digital space, providing innovative digital products to players and continuing to seek out new experiences to enhance its technology, games, and services.
“In fact, the performance of the Michigan Lottery’s iLottery platform has become the benchmark of the industry, with other lotteries launching similar operations.”
