Pollard Banknote has agreed to a partnership deal with the Minnesota Lottery to supply and develop a fully functional mobile lottery app.
Following a competitive procurement process, the lottery awarded Pollard Banknote with a mobile convenience app development services contract from which the app will be developed for both Android and iOS devices.
Increasing the lottery’s digital capabilities, the app will offer features such as ticket checking functionality, GPS lottery retailer locator, as well as information about the lottery, including its responsible gaming program.
“The Minnesota Lottery is excited to partner with Pollard Banknote to bring a new mobile app to our players,” said Adam Prock, Executive Director, Minnesota Lottery. “A new app will enable us to engage with players directly and provide them with convenient access to many facets of the Minnesota Lottery.
“We look forward to working with Pollard Banknote to bring the Minnesota Lottery app to the App Store and Google Play in order to drive excitement among our players and generate additional awareness and proceeds to the programs the Lottery supports throughout the state.”
Once developed and released, users will be able to look up winning numbers and jackpots, create and save digital play slips, and scan tickets to receive entries into the lottery’s second chance program.
Additionally, the app will feature optional social media sharing capabilities, enabling users to share their online lottery experience with friends.
“Pollard Banknote is honoured to expand our longstanding partnership with the Minnesota Lottery to deliver a new mobile app to its players,” said Byron Peterson, Senior Director, Sales & Marketing, Pollard Banknote.
“The launch of the new app will play a fundamental role in establishing the Lottery’s digital presence and expand its online engagement. We know firsthand that technology-driven lottery products are an excellent way to build effective and direct connections with players, and we look forward to continuing this successful partnership with the Lottery that will benefit Minnesotans for years to come.”
