Loto-Québec awards Pollard Banknote two-year instant ticket contract extension
April 26, 2019
Pollard Banknote Limited is pleased to announce a two-year extension to its instant ticket manufacturing contract with Loto-Québec. The extension commenced February 1, 2019, and will allow the company to continue its role as the Lottery's primary instant lottery ticket supplier, which it has been since 2014.
Pollard Banknote has partnered with Loto-Québec to create high performing instant games since 1989, initially through an agreement with Canada's Interprovincial Lottery Corporation. Over the past three decades, Pollard Banknote has worked closely with the Lottery, gaining an understanding of their production requirements and unique market considerations, and leveraging this expertise to develop innovative products that align with Loto-Québec's exacting requirements.
Most recently, Loto-Québec selected three of Pollard Banknote's wide range of industry-leading print innovations to enhance its Multiplicateur Surprise ticket and the X L'Argent family of games. Multiplicateur Surprise takes advantage of Pollard Banknote's exclusive Flip Scratch format, allowing players to snap open windows to reveal variable imaging on the back side of each window, and a scratch area that covers additional play symbols. The Lottery's $2 10x L'Argent and $5 20x L'Argent combine two eye-catching innovative features on one ticket—Pollard Banknote's patented Scratch FX product and neon inks. This Winning Combination brings together the unmistakable shimmer and shine of Scratch FX, with the bold glow of neon ink that makes these tickets pop at retail.
