Pollard Banknote congratulates BCLC, the British Columbia Lottery Corporation on the success of its $2 WWE® Scratch & Win instant ticket. This is the inaugural launch of the WWE® brand since it was added to Pollard Banknote’s Licensed Games Portfolio in 2019.
Based on the first five weeks of sales, the WWE® Scratch & Win game has sold 13 per cent higher than the average of all other non-holiday $2 games launched since 2017, attesting to the widespread allure of the WWE® brand. A multi-scene game featuring both WWE® Legends and WWE® Superstars, the instant ticket swiftly appealed to enthusiasts from a broad and diverse audience, spanning multiple generations. Players can choose between a retro-themed ticket featuring “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Bret “The Hitman” Hart, and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, or a modern iconography sporting Triple H, John Cena, and Kofi Kingston.
Whether players revere former WWE® Legends or present-day Superstars, there’s an instant ticket for every WWE® fan! The $2 WWE® Scratch & Win game offers players a chance to win up to $20,000. For added awareness, BCLC ran a Facebook contest where players had the opportunity to win WWE®-branded merchandise, including Deluxe WWE® Championship Replica Title Belts. The promotion has resulted in a high social media engagement rate, validating the popularity of the brand.
“We are pleased with the initial launch and player excitement generated from our new WWE® instant ticket,” said Gladys Primeau, Category Manager, Instant Games, BCLC. “The brand’s popularity offers high entertainment value that inspires players’ interest and engagement.
