Iowa Lottery awards Pollard Banknote's subsidiary, American Games, new contract for pull‐tab tickets
– American Games, a subsidiary of Pollard Banknote Limited (TSX: PBL), is pleased to announce that it has been chosen to continue as the Iowa Lottery's supplier of pull‐tab tickets and related services.

In Finland, the Proxilotto game has been branded as “Naapurit,” which translates to “neighbours” in English. Players register by purchasing a Player Card or subscribing to tickets from a retailer, on the web, or on mobile. Once a jackpot winner is drawn in a random raffle, a second round of winners is selected among players who live the closest to the original winner. Those geographically closest to the jackpot winner receive larger cash amounts. Daily draws have been broadcast on live television and live web streams in Finland since May 11, 2014.
Following consolidation of its activities in 2012, the Loterie Romande has recorded a slight increase in gross gaming revenues (GGR), which were CHF 378 million over the full financial year 2013. Net profits remained stable at CHF 206 million. This positive result means that the high level of the sums distributed to projects benefitting the public is maintained. It is due in large part to the changes in the tax system which came into force last year: the raising of the threshold for collection of withholding tax on lottery wins to CHF 1,000.00 and the abolition of the "droit des pauvres" tax in Geneva canton made lottery games and sports betting more attractive.
