|"Lotteries across the country came together and listened to what players wanted," said Rebecca Paul Hargrove, President of the Tennessee Lottery. "With three chances to win $1 million, a $5 popular price point, and the ability to unlock more and more millionaires, MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES' CLUB is expected to spread the wealth across the country like no other game in lottery history."|
|"The 2014 Annual NASPL Conference is the perfect venue for introducing our new Flip Scratch™ and Eco Scratch™ products to the lottery industry," said Nancy Bettcher, Vice President, Product Innovation & Development, Pollard Banknote. "While both provide a new look that will command attention at retail, each brings a unique characteristic that is new to the instant ticket world. Flip Scratch™ offers a fun new way to play that's simple to understand but different from any other products our players have seen before. Eco Scratch™ offers a whole new look for instant tickets to cut through the clutter at retail, and caters to environmentally conscious players. These products are among Pollard Banknote's range of innovative offerings that help lotteries raise revenues to support good causes."|
