Michigan Lottery and Pollard Banknote launch omnichannel Pac-Man programme
In June, Michigan Lottery and Pollard Banknote 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.
