WINNIPEG, May 23, 2013 /CNW/ - Pollard Banknote Limited (TSX: PBL) (Pollard Banknote) is pleased to announce the launch of the
New Jersey Lottery's Dubble Bubble™Bingo ticket. This bright and cheery licensed game offers players four bingo
cards with the addition of Pollard Banknote's multi-color translucent
marking system. By matching balls of the same color, the addition of
blue, yellow and pink multi-color marking gives players even more
opportunities to win.
Around the globe, instant tickets with Pollard Banknote's multi-color
translucent marking system are making an impact. Lotteries have
benefited from the added graphic appeal and additional play value. The
use of multi-color translucent marking perfectly showcases the
nostalgic Dubble Bubble brand, adding that vibrant punch of color that
really makes the ticket "pop" at retail. The Dubble Bubble™ brand has
been part of the Pollard Banknote licensed portfolio for 6 years and is
a cornerstone of the company's nostalgia-based brands. Created in 1928
by the Fleer Candy Company, Dubble Bubble™ has been a bubble blower's
favorite for 85 years. "America's Original" bubble gum is now sold in
more than 60 countries on 6 continents.
Dubble Bubble™ instant ticket games have been a success since the onset,
even being named "Best New Instant Game" by NASPL in 2008. The
instantly identifiable logo and well-known Pud character offer a
compelling assortment of instant ticket options. The successful
marriage of the Dubble Bubble™ brand with bingo has now evolved into
extended play bingo games. The ticket is vivid, fun to look at, and
provides lotteries the opportunity to offer their players an even more
engaging instant ticket experience, and yet another chance to win.
"The Dubble Bubble™ brand provides a wonderful platform for fun and
entertainment, especially for incorporating contests and other
promotional activities," said Sina Aiello, Vice President, Marketing.

impact and excitement at retail."
