As per the terms of the agreement, Pollard will provide at least 70% of the Lottery’s scratch games per year. The initial contract term is set to last four years, with an option to extend for an additional two years.

Pollard Senior Director of Sales and Marketing Byron Peterson said: "We are thrilled that the Minnesota Lottery has once again chosen us to be their primary partner for scratch games and related services.

"Having served as the Lottery's primary scratch games partner for over a decade, we have worked to provide players across Minnesota with best-in-class scratch games and retail initiatives that foster engagement and growth.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with the Lottery to deliver exciting products that create memorable experiences, ultimately benefitting residents throughout the state."

The deal comes as an extension of the existing agreement between Pollard and the Minnesota Lottery. After first partnering in 2007, scratch game sales in Minnesota grew by a significant 136%.

The Lottery’s game sales amounted to $615.6m in FY2021, representing a 92.6% year-on-year increase, generating upwards of $188m in returns to the state.

Minnesota Lottery ED Adam Prock said: "We are very excited to extend our strong partnership with Pollard Banknote.

"Throughout our time working together, the company's expertise has helped us to maximise revenue in support of programs that benefit all Minnesotans.

"We are pleased this agreement will allow us to continue to collaborate and bring engaging scratch games to our players."
