43015_Emeralddownsandsportech_300Sportech Racing and Digital, a division of Sportech PLC announced that it has signed new contracts to provide pari-mutuel betting technology and services to two key, long-term customers: Emerald Downs Racing LLC ("Emerald Downs") and Eldorado Resorts, Inc., owner of Mountaineer Casino Racetrack & Resort, Presque Isle Downs & Casino, and Scioto Downs Racino.

Under the new contracts, both negotiated with new owners, Sportech will deliver extensive equipment and software upgrades to both customers. Emerald Downs, the Northwest's premier thoroughbred racing facility, will receive upgraded field board and paddock display equipment, as well as an update of their entire betting terminal inventory to Sportech's BetJet Series devices.

Two of the three Eldorado locations - Mountaineer Casino Racetrack & Resort and Scioto Downs Racino - will also receive upgrades to BetJet Series devices (Presque Isle Downs already has these installed). In addition, all three Eldorado properties will receive Sportech's Digital Link(TM) suite for mobile betting on track, including Sportech's patented digital voucher functionality.

Andrew Gaughan, President of Sportech Racing and Digital, commented: "We are very gratified to have been selected to continue as the tote technology and services provider to these valued customers, and are pleased to further extend our new Digital Link(TM) mobile suite to three more customer locations."
