Sportech Racing and Digital Signs Macau Jockey Club

Sale of Quantum™ System, betting terminals, and white-label digital betting platform coincides with the opening of the new Sportech Operations Center Asia

ATLANTA, Sept. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sportech Racing // Digital, a division of Sportech PLC, (LSE: SPO), announces that it has successfully launched a suite of new pari-mutuel betting technologies for its newest customer in Asia, Macau Jockey Club ("MJC"). 

Sportech delivered its Quantum™ System – the world's most widely deployed pari-mutuel betting system – along with new BetJet® Aero™ teller-operated betting terminals and new BetJet® SL 2.5 self-service betting terminals.  MJC also received a new betting website with Sportech's G4 digital framework, the first implementation of G4 in Asia.   Sportech will support the MJC implementation under a long-term service and maintenance agreement. 

The full suite of new technologies and services from Sportech will help to transform the way Macau Jockey Club delivers racing and betting entertainment to their customers.  Quantum™ System offers Macau Jockey Club a significantly expanded list of pools and bet types, and opens the door to seamless direct commingling with international betting partners including Hong Kong Jockey Club.  The BetJet® Aero™ makes teller transactions faster and more accurate and the BetJet® SL 2.5 offers convenient self-service betting with cash, accounts, and vouchers.  The G4 betting website further extends Macau Jockey Club's offerings to customers when not at the racetrack.

Thomas Li, Macau Jockey Club Chief Executive and Executive Director, commented, "Today marks the beginning of a very meaningful venture and partnership between Sportech and Macau Jockey Club. With the dynamic Quantum System, MJC is better positioned with opportunities to reach out to more racing enthusiasts and customers in the coming years."

With this expansion of Sportech's customer base in Asia – building on new accounts recently secured in Malaysia and Vietnam – the company also announces that it is supplementing its current sales office in Singapore with a new operations center to be opened in Q4 2016.  Heading up the new Sportech Operations Center Asia will be Lance Ku, an experienced operations professional formerly based in the USA who has been with Sportech Racing // Digital for 19 years.

Andrew Gaughan, President of Sportech Racing // Digital, stated: "We are very happy to welcome the Macau Jockey Club to the Sportech Racing // Digital family of customers and are very excited to see the further expansion of our Quantum™ System software and our terminal and digital betting technologies into the Asian market.  We are committed to investing in the region and the establishment of our new Sportech Operations Center Asia is evidence of that commitment.  

We also look forward to introducing the Macau Jockey Club team to twenty of Europe's most prestigious racing and pari-mutuel betting operators next week at Sportech's European Customer Summit in Bordeaux, France.  The MJC will have an opportunity to discuss how best to leverage their new Quantum™ System commingling capabilities with some of the world's premier racing and pools betting partners."
