The interactive Pollard Banknote booth highlighted a selection of our Empowered Partnerships, our unique collaborative approach to client support. We help our lottery clients build a customized portfolio of solutions that reflect the unique regulatory, market, and organizational conditions in which they operate, empowering them to raise more money for the good causes they support.

This year’s booth also showcased our latest innovations across the three key dimensions crucial for lottery success: Outstanding Games, Retail Excellence, and Digital Innovation.

Outstanding Games

Pollard Banknote continues to push the boundaries of traditional instant tickets with innovative new ticket features, designs, and game concepts.

Play FX™ is the latest addition to our sales-driving Scratch FX® family, providing an exciting new way to highlight a winning play symbol, number, or shape under scratch-off with the unmistakable twinkle of Scratch FX®.

Big Ticket Pop-Ups™ make a strong first impression with an extra-large playing surface and a unique, foldable shape that transforms tickets into three-dimensional shapes that stand on their own. British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) launched the first Big Ticket Pop-Up™ in 2021 with its tree-shaped Treasure Tree, which sold out in less than six weeks ! BCLC built on this success with a brand-new edition for the 2022 holiday season, and Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) will deliver a super-sized gift to its players with the launch of its first Treasure Tree.

EasyPack™ incorporates the fun and value of pouched games in a simple, vendible format. Delivered in fan-folded books, EasyPack™ is fully compatible with standard dispensers and ITVMs. Each EasyPack™ opens like a greeting card, offering players double the game space while laying flat for effortless play.

JAWS – With brand awareness spanning generations, the awardwinning JAWS franchise has secured its place in pop-culture, making it perfect for a summer-themed instant scratch ticket with endless promotional possibilities, including merchandise and experiential prizes.

scanACTIV Instants™ is a brand-new lottery product that is conveniently displayed and available for purchase in-lane at retail. Upon scanning at the register, an outcome is assigned, and the digital experience is activated. Scratching the game card reveals a QR code, which accesses the digital game on a mobile device. The player returns to retail with a redemption barcode to claim any winnings, creating a full circle process that begins and ends at retail.
