Diamond Game, a subsidiary of Pollard Banknote, has received a licence to launch an electronic instant bingo game in Ohio

Issued by the Attorney General of the State of Ohio, the licence allows Diamond Game to provide charitable electronic instant bingo machines to veteran and fraternal organisations throughout the state. 

 “We’re eager to help Ohio posts and clubs raise more money for good causes with our products,” said Bill Breslo, President of Diamond Game.

“We are committed to providing superior value to the Ohio market with the development of new and engaging games using state-of-the-art technology and design, as well as our extensive licensed game portfolio, to entertain players and drive more revenue to charitable causes in the state.”

With this deal, three Pollard Banknote subsidiaries now hold charitable gaming licences in the Buckeye State, the other two firms being American Games and International Gamco.

Diamond Game also holds several other licences to operate in North America, supplying gaming machines to commercial casinos, tribal casinos and state lotteries.

“Pollard Banknote’s charitable gaming division has been a longstanding contributor of many of the most successful and recognized pull tab games in the Ohio market,” added Steven Fingold, Executive Vice President, Charitable Gaming, Pollard Banknote.

“International Gamco seal card and bingo event games, as well as American Games bingo paper and instant tickets, have been staple products in Ohio for nearly 40 years.” 

Fingold concluded: “With the addition of electronic pull-tabs by Diamond Game, we now have the ability to supply our Ohio distributors with a comprehensive range of products necessary for a successful charitable gaming program.”
