Pollard Banknote is pleased to announce an extension to its instant ticket games and related services contract with Loto-Québec. The original contract term started on February 1, 2014, and under this extension Pollard Banknote will continue to serve Loto-Québec as the primary supplier of instant ticket games through January 31, 2022.

This contract extends the successful and highly collaborative relationship that has been forged between Pollard Banknote and Loto-Québec over the last several years. During this time, Pollard Banknote has provided a comprehensive suite of services, including game design, instant ticket production and marketing.

Firmly committed to offering top-quality entertainment to its players, Loto-Québec has long been recognized for its responsible, innovative, and dynamic approach to its instant ticket portfolio. Most recently, Loto-Québec’s quest to bring novel game concepts to its players has inspired the development of several new instant ticket collaborations between the Lottery and Pollard Banknote, including tickets with multi-player functionality and other unique print features, to be introduced in the coming months. In addition, Pollard Banknote’s industry-leading innovations, including Scratch FX®, pouched games, and various specialty inks, have proven to be a natural fit for the Lottery.

“Loto-Québec is pleased to continue working with Pollard Banknote to create innovative games that offer players exciting new experiences,” said Marie-Claudel Lalonde, Senior Director, Strategy and Marketing Communication at Loto-Québec.

“Loto-Québec is a valued customer and we are exceptionally proud of the strong partnership we have cultivated as their primary instant ticket partner. We look forward to continuing to support the Lottery with innovative products that meet its high standards of quality and security, while providing the utmost flexibility in terms of production and new concept development over the coming year,” said Michelle Annandale, Vice President, International Sales & Marketing, Pollard Banknote.
