Pollard Banknote Limited is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Pollard Games, Inc., doing business as International Gamco (“Gamco”), has received a five-year contract extension from the Idaho Lottery Commission (“Idaho Lottery”) for its PullTabs program. As a result, the Gamco contract will be extended through June 30, 2026.
Gamco has provided paper pull-tabs to the Idaho Lottery since 1995 and became its sole supplier in 2008. In 2012, the Lottery introduced electronic pull-tabs, TouchTabs®, in age-controlled social establishments. The TouchTabs product is serviced by Pollard Banknote subsidiary Diamond Game as a subcontractor to Gamco.
“This extension will allow us to continue building on our successful 25-year partnership with International Gamco and leverage the unique and innovative products offered by both International Gamco and Diamond Game,” said Jeff Anderson, Director, Idaho Lottery. “Their expertise and dedication to our PullTabs program have been significant in enhancing player experiences.”
“We are grateful to the Idaho Lottery for their trust in, and commitment to, our company and products,” said Bill Breslo, President, Diamond Game. “We are proud of the contribution our products have made to the State’s Public Schools and Permanent Building Fund, and we look forward to the continued growth of the PullTabs program. We are committed to providing best-in-class products and service to the Idaho Lottery as we extend our long-standing relationship.”
The Idaho Lottery aims to responsibly provide entertaining games with a high degree of integrity to maximize proceeds for education programs in Idaho.
