Pollard Banknote Limited (TSX: PBL) (“Pollard Banknote”) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Diamond Game, has received an electronic instant bingo license issued by the Attorney General of the State of Ohio. The license allows the company to provide charitable electronic instant bingo machines—also known as E-bingo or electronic pull tabs—to veteran and fraternal organizations throughout the state.
Diamond Game holds licenses in a number of North American jurisdictions across a broad cross-section of the gaming industry, with considerable experience providing gaming machines to commercial casinos, tribal casinos, state lotteries, and numerous charitable gaming venues. With this license, Diamond Game joins fellow Pollard Banknote subsidiaries American Games and International Gamco in providing veteran and fraternal locations in Ohio with charitable gaming products. “We’re eager to help Ohio posts and clubs raise more money for good causes with our products,” said Bill Breslo, President, Diamond Game. “We are committed to providing superior value to the Ohio market with the development of new and engaging games using state-of-the-art technology and design, as well as our extensive licensed game portfolio, to entertain players and drive more revenue to charitable causes in the state.”
“Pollard Banknote’s charitable gaming division has been a longstanding contributor of many of the most successful and recognized pull tab games in the Ohio market. International Gamco seal card and bingo event games, as well as American Games bingo paper and instant tickets, have been staple products in Ohio for nearly 40 years. With the addition of electronic pull-tabs by Diamond Game, we now have the ability to supply our Ohio distributors with a comprehensive range of products necessary for a successful charitable gaming program,” said Steven Fingold, Executive Vice President, Charitable Gaming, Pollard Banknote.
