The Missouri Lottery has expanded its Pull-Tabs program contract with Diamond Game, a subsidiary of Pollard Banknote Limited. The contract will now remain valid till September 30, 2023.
“We are pleased to be extending our contract with Diamond Game and further growing our contribution to public education,” said Bernard Collier, Chief Operating Officer, Missouri Lottery. “Missouri’s fraternal organizations have also benefited tremendously since the Pull-Tabs program launched, and we’re delighted to continue supporting their efforts.”
The Missouri Lottery launched the Pull-Tabs program in 2013 for bringing Lottery Pull-Tabs back to the market. A pilot program was initiated, after which Missouri Lottery published a Request for Proposal, which led to the original deal with Diamond Game. As per the contract, Diamond Game would be the sole supplier to the Pull-Tabs program.
“We are extremely pleased to be extending our agreement with the Missouri Lottery and look forward to working with its team to further its goals. It is also a privilege that our product helps support the positive contributions that the veteran and fraternal non-profit retailers make in their communities,” stated Bill Breslo, President, Diamond Game.
Established in 1986, the Missouri Lottery has contributed more than $6.5 billion to the state of Missouri and public education.
