PLEASANTON, Calif. – June 16, 2020 – Today, global branded payments provider Blackhawk Network, Inc. announced a new agreement with leading lottery expert Pollard Banknote Limited (“Pollard Banknote”) to bring greater convenience to consumers purchasing instant lottery tickets. With this partnership, retailers can merchandise instant tickets “in-lane” at retail to provide both current lottery players and new impulse customers a quick and simple way to purchase popular instant games directly at the register and most self-checkout kiosks.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, having an online presence has never been more important as many retailers were forced to temporarily close. In a three-way dialogue, Dan Beebe, Director of Lottery Strategic Development at BCLC; Stuart Godfree, Managing Director of mkodo; and Jennifer Westbury, Executive Vice President, Sales & Customer Development at Pollard Banknote, examine the link between retail and online sales platforms, how lotteries can best integrate their retail and online offering as well as protect the relationship with their retailers in the wake of an increased digital offering.
