Toronto-listed lottery supplier Pollard Banknote has signed a five-year extension to its deal to provide instant ticket services to Canada’s Interprovincial Lottery Corporation (ILC).
The agreement sees Pollard Banknote continue to provide instant tickets, game design, and related services to the five Canadian regional lottery corporations, which work together through the ILC to offer national lottery games.
Pollard Banknote has been a partner to the ILC for nearly 30 years, developing a number of top-selling regionally-specific national games including Ultra and X Money.
“Pollard Banknote is thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to build on the successful partnership we have established with the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation over three decades,” said Pollard Banknote vice president of sales and marketing Brad Thompson.
“The lottery utilizes its multi-provincial strength, as well as Pollard Banknote’s leading-edge printing processes, to create dynamic national games that players love. We look forward to continuing to support the ILC with exciting new tickets that stand out at retail using our eye-catching designs, and are committed to continue our productive collaboration over the upcoming years.”
The ILC is comprised of the Atlantic Lottery Corporation (New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island); Loto-Québec; the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation; the Western Canada Lottery Corporation (Manitoba, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut); and the British Columbia Lottery Corporation.
