Idaho Lottery Commission Extends Its Deal with Pollard Banknote
The deal, signed through its subsidiary International Gamco and its Oasis Gaming division represents an extension of the current agreement for the PullTabs program, and under its provisions, the two sides will continue to work together through June 30th, 2021.
The Cooperation Continues
International Gamco and Idaho Lottery Commission have been cooperating for nearly two and a half decades. The first agreement was signed back in 1995, while in 2008 the Nebraska-headquartered manufacturer of pull-tab tickets became the sole supplier for the Idaho Lottery Commission.
In 2012 the Idaho Lottery Commission expanded its offer by adding electronic pull-tabs to its portfolio. Under the existing deal, International Gamco not only supplies pull-tab games but is also responsible for servicing of the program and for its overall support.
Commenting on this important move, Jeff Anderson, Director of the Idaho Lottery Commission said that International Gamco and their staff in Idaho had been great partners for the Lottery
He added that their professionalism and dedication to the Lottery’s PullTab program had been paramount in achieving consistent and growing player acceptance of the games year in and year out.
Looking Forward to New Products
On the other hand, Scott Henneman, Vice President of International Gamco’s Oasis Gaming Division stated his company truly appreciated the confidence the Idaho Lottery Commission had in them and their products.
Henneman pointed out International Gamco was proud of its long-standing relationship with the Idaho Lottery and the contribution its products had made to the State’s Public Schools and Permanent Building Fund. He also added the company was looking forward to the continued growth of the PullTab program and to providing the best possible products and support to the Idaho Lottery.
The Idaho Lottery Commission has stated on several occasions it wants to offer entertaining games whilst maximising proceeds for education programs in the Gem State.
Since the Idaho Lottery Commission began its operation on July 19, 1989, it has returned around $800 million to the State’s Public School Building Account and the Permanent Building Fund. In nearly three decades since its inception, the Idaho Lottery Commission has sold more than $3 billion in products and awarded around $1.8 billion in prizes. Only a couple of days ago, the company announced it had recorded a record-breaking year.
International Gamco is one of the biggest suppliers of pulltab games not only in the United States, but also in other markets around the world. The company is known for the quality of its products and an innovative approach used in the manufacturing process. Oasis Gaming boasts a vast experience in the industry, stretching for more than two and a half decades.
Based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Pollard Banknote is today a leading lottery partner to more than 60 lotteries around the globe, employing around 1,200 people and supplying providing pull-tab tickets, bingo paper and its Diamond Game and Oasis-branded electronic ticket machines to gaming markets across the North American continent.
