Pollard Banknote has announced that its subsidiary company, mkodo, has partnered with the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) to launch a mobile lottery app.
Provided by Bede Gaming, the app is fully integrated into OLG’s online platform and offers players across Ontario the ability to buy lottery tickets and play casino games on demand.
Users can use the app to locate lottery retailer outlets, find information about the latest games, as well as play small instant win games.
Pollard Banknote added that accessibility is a priority for the app, with assistive technology such as voice assistance, talkback and screen readers implemented.
Brad Thompson, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Pollard Banknote, commented: “We are very proud to partner with OLG and help broaden its scope of work within the digital sphere with the launch of their new mobile app.
“We look forward to continuing to provide the lottery with innovative products that drive excitement among players and generate returns for the many good causes OLG supports.”
OLG is incentivising people to join the app by offering new customers $300 credit when they sign up. Since going live on July 19, the OLG portal has seen “hundreds of thousands of players register”.
Duncan Hannay, OLG President and CEO, added: “OLG.ca is the trusted digital platform of choice in Ontario and now our players can have that same confidence in the OLG app, whether they’re making a deposit, playing their favourite game or scanning their tickets to check for winners,”
“With over 1 million registered players on OLG.ca, we are intent on continuing to deliver world-class gaming entertainment for Ontarians while driving forward as a leader and an innovator in the digital space. We’re thrilled to be accompanied on this journey by such strong partners as Pollard Banknote and mkodo.”
