ATLANTA, Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sportech Racing // Digital, a division of Sportech PLC, (LSE: SPO) is pleased to announce that it has been selected by an affiliate of Penn National Gaming, Inc. ("PNG") to deliver new internet and mobile solutions for pari-mutuel betting. Sportech will provide the G4 framework for Internet betting, and the Digital Link™ app for mobile betting, along with a package of associated services that includes call center betting, customer care, and tech support.
Sportech is the exclusive provider of pari-mutuel betting services to Penn National Gaming's twelve racetracks and four off-track betting locations located in nine different jurisdictions. Sportech has also provided PNG's eBetUSA betting website since the service first launched sixteen years ago.
The new G4 and Digital Link™ platforms will leverage the power of Sportech's Quantum™ System software and BetJet betting terminals to offer players the convenience of using a single account and single digital wallet across all betting channels. This means that players can use their PNG account over the Internet, with the Digital Link™ mobile app, over the phone with a call center operator, or with a betting terminal located at one of PNG's 16 brick-and-mortar locations based on the laws and regulations of each jurisdiction.
Andrew Gaughan, President of Sportech Racing // Digital said, "We are very pleased to expand our business relationship with Penn National Gaming, the largest owner and operator of racetrack and associated betting facilities in the United States. The G4 and Digital Link™ platforms, backed by robust CRM tools, and patented features like digital voucher, will deliver convenience and an enhanced betting experience to PNG players all over the country."
Chris McErlean, Vice President Racing for Penn National Gaming, commented, "We sought to offer our current and future players a satisfying and immersive betting experience, with accounts and interfaces that move seamlessly between brick-and-mortar and digital.
