US.- Michigan Lottery and Pollard Banknote have partnered to launch a new omnichannel Pac-Man programme. For the first time, Michigan Lottery includes an instant ticket, pull-tab ticket, and online instant game, all of which feature the iconic yellow, pellet-eating character.

The $2 instant ticket, $1 pull-tab game, and online instant game were printed or produced by Pollard Banknote. A $30,000 prize is available on the instant ticket if Pac-Man progresses from start to finish or if the player finds a cherry. Players can also win on the pull-tab ticket and online instant game by matching three consecutive symbols in a horizontal row.

Pollard Banknote said: “As one of the most recognisable arcade brands with proven success for lotteries throughout North America, this programme provides unprecedented engagement across all touchpoints and an a-maze-ing experience that will appeal to all Michigan Lottery players and PAC-MAN fans alike.”

Senior director, sales and marketing, Donna Preziotti, commented: “The Michigan Lottery’s decision to launch an omni-channel PAC-MAN programme leverages a well-known brand that provides players with a multifaceted play experience, maximising engagement across all Lottery channels.”

“With a fulsome marketing campaign that includes point of sale and digital advertisements, we are confident that this programme will resonate with players and will be a welcome addition to the Michigan Lottery’s existing portfolio of successful instant tickets, pull-tabs, and online instant games.”
