Instant Ticket Featuring Pollard Banknote’s Flip Scratch™ Innovation Successful for Slovakia’s Niké

logo

WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Canada (January 25, 2016) – Pollard Banknote Limited (TSX: PBL) (Pollard Banknote) congratulates Niké, Slovakia’s largest sports betting company, on the success of its instant ticket Oko berie (blackjack). Oko berie, printed and designed by Pollard Banknote, has achieved high honours in the Niké record book, with sales matching those of the company’s best-selling 5€ instant game.

Launched in October 2015, Oko berie represents the lottery industry’s debut of Pollard Banknote’s latest print innovation—Flip Scratch™.

Pollard Ticket

Flip Scratch™ is a patented Fusion® product that combines pop-open windows and scratch-off areas, enhancing the play value and doubling the excitement. Players pop open windows to reveal play data on the back of each window and a scratch area that covers additional play symbols.

In addition to blackjack, Flip Scratch™ accommodates a variety of play styles, including symbol match, slots, and other popular card games such as poker and high low.

The Flip Scratch™ innovation blends seamlessly with Oko berie game play, providing players with the thrill of flipping over the dealer’s cards and then scratching to reveal their own cards. An instant reveal bonus area adds yet another layer of play and offers four more chances to win.

Niké has been dealt a winning hand with Oko berie. We are always looking for new and innovative ways to entertain our players and this game has exceeded our expectations,” said Michal Dáni, Lottery Director, Niké. “Oko berie is the first instant ticket that we have launched with a card game theme in the Slovakian market, and with Flip Scratch™, the ticket simulates the excitement of live blackjack. Our players appreciate this enhanced play value.”

Pollard Banknote is thrilled about Niké’s success with our Flip Scratch™ innovation,” said Nancy Bettcher, Vice President, Product Innovation & Development, Pollard Banknote. “The Oko berie ticket offers a new game and play style that is clearly drawing player attention at Slovakian retailers. We look forward to other lotteries following suit with this unique product.”

Niké, the first betting company in Slovakia, has been operating since January 29, 1991. Since Niké’s establishment, it has been the largest betting company in the territory of Slovakia with more than 900 branches distributed throughout the region. The company’s main activity is fixed-odds betting, approved by the Ministry of Finance of the Slovak Republic. Pollard Banknote is the company’s sole supplier of instant scratch tickets.

About Pollard Banknote

Pollard Banknote is a leading lottery partner to more than 50 lotteries worldwide, providing high quality instant ticket products, licensed games, and strategic marketing and management services for both traditional instant games and the emerging iLottery space of web, mobile, and social channels.

The company is a proven innovator and has decades of experience helping lotteries to maximize player engagement, sales, and proceeds for good causes.

Pollard Banknote also plays a major role in the charitable pull-tab and bingo markets in North America. Established in 1907, Pollard Banknote is owned approximately 73.5% by the Pollard family and 26.5% by public shareholders and is publicly traded on the TSX (PBL).

And in 2014, we launched the 4D Jackpot Gold. Today, we are proud to introduce another brand new game to the Malaysian market."

With a match of any top 3 4D numbers and the 4D Powerball numbers, the player stands a chance to win different categories of Jackpot 1 prize. There is no cap as to how high the Jackpot amount can grow! Another key feature of Magnum 4D Powerball is that all 23 4D numbers are eligible to match a Jackpot prize.

"To be just three weeks into 2016, and already have hundreds of millions of dollars in prizes won, and an estimated $187 million in revenue generated for education is truly unprecedented."

A large portion of January’s record-breaking sales came from POWERBALL®, which accounted for $237.6 million of sales, 40 percent of which will go to education. The Lottery’s flagship draw game, FLORIDA LOTTO®, has also been experiencing a series of jackpot rollovers, which has generated higher sales. Couple that with the increased popularity of the Lottery’s daily draw games and assortment of Scratch-Off games, and the result is a winning combination.

The Lottery’s success so far this year, is spring-boarding from an incredible 2015. For the first-time ever, three of the Florida Lottery nine sales districts - Miami, Tampa and Orlando - each exceeded $1 billion in annual sales during the 2015 calendar year.

This equates to $875.1 million in contributions for education. Through the years, the Lottery has grown and evolved, yet the emphasis on fulfilling its mission to maximize revenue for education remains the core pillar of the agency’s success.

ABOUT THE FLORIDA LOTTERY

The Florida Lottery is responsible for contributing more than $29 billion to education and sending more than 725,000 students to college through the Bright Futures Scholarship Program.

The Florida Lottery reinvests 97 percent of its revenue back into Florida's economy through prize payouts, commissions to more than 13,000 Florida retailers and transfers to education.

Since 1988, Florida Lottery games have paid more than $48.5 billion in prizes and made more than 1,800 people millionaires.

New AGA Report Proves Gaming’s Dedication to Anti-Money Laundering Compliance

Article by: Geoff Freeman, President and CEO, American Gaming Association

WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 21, 2016) --The casino gaming industry is dedicated to anti-money laundering (AML) compliance and, in partnership with Ernst & Young, it’s now been proven.

AGA today released the most comprehensive examination ever conducted of the U.S. casino gaming industry’s compliance with federal AML laws and regulations.

This report comes ahead of the upcoming Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Mutual Evaluation, which is taking place this year for the first time in a decade.

The FATF mutual evaluation process results in comprehensive written reports that are used by governments and the private sector to understand the money laundering and terrorist financing risks posed by countries and the financial sectors within them.

For further explanation of the importance of the upcoming FATF mutual evaluation, please CLICK HERE.

Conducted by Ernst & Young, the comprehensive report, “Investing in America’s Financial Security: Casinos’ Commitment to Anti-Money Laundering Compliance,” highlights the industry’s commitment to AML Compliance and enhancements that the industry has made to AML Compliance programs since the last FATF Mutual Evaluation in 2006. 

 Report Reinforces Gaming Industry's Leadership in Money-Laundering Prevention

 According to the report, casinos and gaming organizations across the country are more invested, compliant and vigilant than ever before in combatting money laundering and terrorist financing.

This morning, Reuters wrote about the new report, saying "casino AML spending surges, driven by new hires, training, tech."

The article notes that the industry's relationship with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) has helped casinos better understand regulatory expectations.

Over the past five years, gaming companies have increased AML compliance budgets by 74 percent, implemented a sweeping series of customer due diligence programs, and partnered closely with law enforcement and regulatory officials to ensure Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) standards are met.

 

AGA clip

 

These findings reinforce what we already know: the gaming industry sets the standard for maintaining a strong culture of compliance.

For more detailed key findings from the report, read the fact sheet. In summary: 

  • Industry Boosts AML Compliance Investment Across the Board: According to Ernst & Young's research, more than two-thirds of gaming companies studied (68%) have increased their organization’s AML budget – on an average of 74 percent per organization – over the past five years. Two-in-three (65%) plan to increase their AML budget even more in the upcoming fiscal year with an increasing number of new full-time hires.

Gaming Continues Its Vigilance: The gaming industry’s Suspicious Activity Reports (SAR) filings more than doubled – up 164 percent – between 2011 and 2014. At the same time, state and federal law enforcement officials interviewed for this research indicated that the quality of the industry’s BSA reports has improved.

 

AGA Image

  • Regulatory and Law Enforcement Officials: Gaming Industry Committed to AML Monitoring and Quality BSA Reporting: The majority (71 percent) of law enforcement and regulatory agency officials interviewed by Ernst & Young say the gaming industry understands the importance of SARs, Currency Transaction Reports (CTRs) and monetary instrument log reporting requirements. Law enforcement and regulatory officials report finding a greater emphasis by the gaming industry on training staff and hiring experienced AML personnel.
  • Gaming Not Tolerating Bad Behavior: In 2014, the number of customer relationships terminated due to unacceptable levels of risk was 23 times more than in 2011.

Gaming Industry Strengthens Relationship with Regulators

FATF will begin its work in the U.S. this year.

The casino industry is one of many industries that will be assessed during the FATF Mutual Evaluation, and our hope is that FATF will carefully consider AGA’s 2016 AML Report as it develops its findings and conclusions related to our industry.

 This report, much like the AGA’s Best Practices for AML Compliance, is also part of a concerted effort to continue to strengthen our ties with prominent regulatory organizations including the U.S. Treasury Department and FinCEN.

We are confident that FATF’s assessment will reinforce that the gaming industry is a model for other industries to follow when it comes to close, effective partnerships with regulatory and law enforcement officials.

As always, I look forward to your feedback on this and other important issues facing our industry.

 

Sincerely,

 Geoff Freeman

The Numbers Are in! World Record Jackpot Generates $266.7 Million in Texas Powerball® and Power Play® Sales

AUSTIN, Texas (January 21, 2016) – Record sales for the roll up to the Jan. 13 Powerball drawing for a $1,586,400,000 jackpot, the largest lottery jackpot in world history, generated $266.7 million in sales in Texas, resulting in $106.7 million for Texas’ Foundation School Fund.

While there was no jackpot winner in Texas for last week’s world record Powerball drawing, Texas public schools were big winners,” said Gary Grief, chair of the Powerball game and executive director of the Texas Lottery.

ICE Totally Gaming Invitation

National sales for the Powerball jackpot created a windfall of funding for important causes supported by state lotteries across the country. Total national Powerball draw sales for the roll cycle from Nov. 5 to Jan. 13 were $3.358 billion resulting in $1.3 billion in revenue for causes including college scholarships, education, veterans, senior citizens and the environment.

Texas Powerball players and our lottery retailers also benefited from historic sales. Powerball sales from Nov. 5 to Jan. 13 culminated in $49 million in prizes to players and $13 million in retailer commissions. For the Jan. 13 drawing, nationally, there were 26,110,643 non-jackpot prizewinning tickets sold and Texas sold 2,289,864 nonjackpot prizewinning tickets for the Jan. 13 drawing.

Last fiscal year the Texas Lottery generated record revenue for the state and with sales from this world record jackpot, we are already positioned to break last year’s record,” said Grief.

WORLD RECORD RECAP

Jackpot winning tickets for the Jan. 13 drawing were sold in California, Florida and Tennessee.

The jackpot’s final cash value was $983,505,233 and the winning numbers were 4-8-19-27-34 and Powerball 10.

Texas saw its best hour of Powerball sales in the lottery’s 24 year history on Jan. 13 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. with $8.6 million in sales.

Four lucky Texans missed winning the Jan. 13 jackpot by one number but matched five of the six numbers drawn winning second-tier prizes of $1 million or $2 million.

The Jan. 13 jackpot started at $40 million on Nov. 7, 2015, and was the result of 19 drawings with no jackpot winner.

POWERBALL

Powerball jackpots start at $40 million and roll until the jackpot is won. Players win the jackpot by matching five numbers from a field of 69 numbers and one Powerball number from a field of 26 numbers. Plays cost $2 each.

The Power Play® option, which multiplies any prize you win except the jackpot, is available for an extra $1 per play.

Powerball drawings are at 9:59 p.m. CT on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and are broadcast live from Tallahassee, FL.

Texas has had two Powerball jackpot winners since joining the multistate Powerball game in 2010.

Texas has had 23 second-tier Powerball winners of $1 million or $2 million since January 2015.

MORE NUMBERS

Powerball sales from Jan. 10 to Jan. 13 were $109.1 million, a new record in Texas beating the $70.5 million in sales for the previous Powerball drawing. Texas sales represented 8.6 percent of total Powerball sales for the drawing.

Powerball sales for Jan. 13 in Texas were $65.2 million, a new record beating the $44.4 million in sales for the previous Powerball drawing. Texas sales represented 9.9 percent of total Powerball sales for the day.

Nationally, total Powerball sales from Jan. 10 to Jan. 13 were $1.27 billion.

New Maryland Lottery Cash4Life Game Offers Top Prize of $1,000 a Day for Life

Kickoff event to be held at Thursday’s Terps vs. Iowa game

logo

BALTIMORE, Maryland (January 25, 2016) - Who wouldn’t like to win $1,000 a day for life -- or even $1,000 a week for life? The Maryland Lottery is betting Marylanders will love to play Cash4Life, a multi-state game that is growing in popularity.

Maryland is the sixth state to offer the game, which features a top prize of $1,000 a day for life and a second-tier prize of $1,000 a week for life. Tickets go on sale today at the Maryland Lottery’s nearly 4,600 retailers, and the state will participate in its first Cash4Life drawing on Thursday, Jan. 28. Drawings take place at 9 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays, with ticket sales ending at 8:45 p.m. on drawing nights. 

We’re always looking for ways to keep our games fresh and exciting,” said Maryland Lottery and Gaming Director Gordon Medenica. “We are confident that our players are going to have a lot of fun with Cash4Life. Sometimes you see games that say ‘for life,’ but they’re really for 20 or 25 years. This truly is $1,000 a day for life, and that’s a concept that really resonates with people.”

Players who try out the game from Jan. 26 - March 8 can have even more fun with the Lottery’s new game promotion. Lottery terminals will print a free ($2 value) Cash4Life ticket at random based on statewide sales when a player buys tickets valued at $1 or more for any draw game. Eligible games are Bonus Match 5, Cash4Life, 5 Card Cash, Keno, Mega Millions, Multi-Match, Pick 3, Pick 4, Powerball and Racetrax.

The Maryland Lottery will hold a kickoff event at the Terps vs. Iowa basketball game at the Xfinity Center in College Park on Thursday, Jan. 28. As fans 18 and over enter the arena, they will receive an entry to get into the Maryland Lottery’s “money machine” at halftime. One person will be picked to go in the machine and win $100 for each piece of "money" they grab. Four others will win half that amount just for being selected. Lottery officials will also distribute single-use coupons for free $2 Cash4Life tickets, which can be redeemed at any Maryland Lottery retailer.

Detailed information about Cash4Life can be seen on mdlottery.com. Click HERE for details on how to play the game and HERE for prize payouts.

The Lottery will post results on mdlottery.com and on the Lottery smartphone app.

The Maryland Lottery’s newest game becomes its 10th draw game. The introduction of Cash4Life marks just the third time since 2006 that the Maryland Lottery has added to its lineup of terminal games. Powerball tickets went on sale in Maryland in 2010, and 5 Card Cash was introduced in 2012.

Cash4Life began in New York and New Jersey in June 2014. Pennsylvania joined the game in April 2015, Virginia joined in May 2015 and Tennessee joined in November 2015. In its first 12 months, Cash4Life paid a total of $143 million to nearly 15 million winners in four states. Since the game’s inception, 10 top-prize-winning tickets have been sold along with 13 second-tier prize winners.

Since its inception in 1973, the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency has awarded nearly $22.2 billion in prizes to Lottery players and $14.4 billion in Lottery revenue to the State of Maryland. One of Maryland’s largest revenue sources, the Lottery supports important state programs and services including education, public safety and health, human resources and the environment.

AUSTRALASIAN GAMING EXPO 2016

Logo

Save the Dates for Australasian Gaming Expo 2016

 

Tuesday 9th to Thursday 11th August are the dates for the 2016 Australasian Gaming Expo to be held at Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island.

Featuring more than 200 exhibitors across 17,000 square metres of exhibition space, the Australasian Gaming Expo is easily the biggest event of its type in Australia and one of the world's biggest.

AGE 2015

All indications are that the exhibition will again be full to capacity with a wide range of companies showcasing the world’s best gaming and related equipment and services.

Following on from last year’s Gaming Expo where we saw a 16.5% increase in visitors over the previous year’s Expo, there are a number of improvements being introduced this year.

These include greater use of the Glebe Island site resulting in a 9% increase in floor space, the installation of a visitor’s lounge that takes advantage of the panoramic views of the harbour and an exhibitor’s sales area which will preview the Australasian Gaming Expo for 2017.

This year’s event still includes complimentary ferry travel from Darling Harbour to Glebe Island, providing all visitors with a spectacular Sydney Harbour cruise.

AGE2015

Of course there’s more to the Expo than a cruise, with one visitor summing up their Gaming Expo experience in the following words: “I find the AGE great for networking and I’m easily able to compare products & services under the same roof.” In fact, our post show research showed that 93% of the visitors saw the Expo as an opportunity to see new products and technology.

Event owner and operator, the Gaming Technologies Association, will again add to the fun by offering a surprise trip for 2 to Las Vegas for visitors at each day of the Expo, which was won last year by Liz Jacobs from the Hellenic Club in the ACT, Rod Pittorino from the Bayview Hotel at Gladesville in NSW and Gavin Hood from Skycity in Auckland.

Of course the Gaming Technologies Association’s members, whose exhibition stands would sit comfortably alongside the world’s best at any global event, will be in full force at the Australasian Gaming Expo - which is the “must attend” 2016 gaming trade event.

Note: The Australasian Gaming Expo is a trade exhibition, for management representatives of Gaming Industry Organisations only including government, regulatory, research and support bodies, clubs, hotels, casinos, resorts and similar Hospitality Industry venues.

Trade suppliers are not eligible to attend the event unless exhibiting.

The Gaming Technologies Association’s primary members are Ainsworth Game Technology, Aristocrat Technologies, Aruze Gaming Australia, eBet Limited, IGT (Australia), Konami Australia and Scientific Games.
