Sportech to Showcase Newest Technologies for Betting at the Asian Racing Conference in Mumbai

ATLANTA, Jan. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sportech Racing // Digital, a division of Sportech PLC, (LSE: SPO), will once again showcase its latest technologies for pari-mutuel betting at the 36th Asian Racing Conference in Mumbai, India, January 24 - 29.  During this global racing forum organized by the Asian Racing Federation, Sportech will exhibit new betting technologies designed to enhance the player experience and promote player adoption of mobile and digital betting.    

Sportech's 2016 exhibit will showcase two new self-service terminals from the BetJet™ Series, including a user interface that offers alternate user journeys based on player experience levels.  Also featured will be the new BetJet Aero™, a compact terminal for teller service that can also convert to cashless self-service as needed.

All of the new terminal products work seamlessly with the patented features of Sportech's Digital Link™ mobile suite, which offers a paperless alternative to printed vouchers and tickets by allowing players to store and retrieve digital tickets on a mobile device.  

Andrew Gaughan, President of Sportech Racing // Digital, stated: "We are very pleased to once again join our customers and colleagues at the Asian Racing Conference.  The global racing industry recognizes the strength of Sportech's technologies and services, and our growing presence in Asia reflects this.  In December we announced the signing of two new customers in Asia: Royal Sabah Turf Club of Malaysia, and Sports Network Limited of Vietnam. 

This expands upon our extensive presence in Europe where we serve Betfred Totepool, Tote Ireland, Fintoto, the Irish Greyhound Board, Turkey Jockey Club, and Danske Spil, among others. We also maintain our strong position in North America, where we added new customers Lone Star Park and Remington Park on January 1st."
