WINNIPEG, Manitoba, June 23, 2015 /CNW/ – Pollard Banknote Limited (TSX: PBL) (“Pollard Banknote”) is pleased to congratulate the Iowa Lottery Authority (“Iowa Lottery”) on 30 years of success generating revenue and maximizing proceeds to support good causes in the State of Iowa. To celebrate this exciting milestone, the Lottery launched its $5 30 Somethings instant ticket on May 4, 2015—the first Eco ScratchTM product to be released in North America and only the third worldwide!

Eco Scratch TM , a new product innovation available exclusively through Pollard Banknote, offers players an eco‐friendly way to play and win! Eco Scratch TM paper stock is made from 60% recycled fibers (35% post‐consumer) and resembles brown kraft paper, giving instant tickets a hand‐crafted, nostalgic feel. The organic look and texture of this sustainable, alternative paper product creates an ideal canvas on which to commemorate the Iowa Lottery’s 30 th anniversary.

The Iowa Lottery has coupled its 30 Somethings instant ticket with an exciting promotion that allows players to enter non‐winning tickets into its Play It Again® program for additional chances to win a range of 30‐themed prizes. The cleverly named prize packages include a monthly Iowa seasonal artisan cheese package, 18 holes of golf at an Iowa course, the chance to win $1,000 cash, and more. The promotion continues into the summer months with new prize categories added every 30 days. Each entry also gives players a chance to win the grand prize of $30,000 to be drawn on August 3, 2015!

“On behalf of Pollard Banknote, we would like to take this opportunity to applaud the Iowa Lottery on 30 years of hard work and dedication in support of good causes within the State,” said Jennifer Westbury, Executive Vice President, Sales & Customer Development, Pollard Banknote. “The Lottery’s outstanding success and longevity can be attributed to its unwavering commitment to offering its players the best and most innovative instant tickets available. The Iowa Lottery has proven itself once again to be a trailblazer with the launch of its 30 Somethings instant ticket featuring our new Eco ScratchTM paper stock and we are confident that this trend will continue over the next 30 years.”

“We have established a strong and successful working relationship with Pollard Banknote and we are pleased to partner with them to develop a truly unique and engaging instant ticket to mark the Iowa Lottery’s 30 th anniversary celebration,” said Terry Rich, CEO of the Iowa Lottery. “Pollard Banknote’s new Eco Scratch TM product allows us to offer an environmentally‐friendly instant ticket concept that is unlike any other product currently available at retail. The ticket, combined with exciting second chance draws provides an added element of fun and more value to our players.”

Since its inception in 1985, the Iowa Lottery has raised more than $1.6 billion for State programs that benefit all Iowans. Today, Lottery proceeds are allocated to three main causes: support for veterans, help for a variety of significant projects through the State General Fund, and backing for Vision Iowa ‐ a program implemented to create tourism destinations and community attractions, and build and repair schools.
