Sportech Signs New Tote Contract with Boyd Gaming

Update from Sportech Racing and Digital

Sportech Racing and Digital, a division of Sportech PLC, successfully expanded their Tote Services Agreement with Boyd Gaming Corporation ("Boyd Gaming") upon conclusion of a competitive bidding process. Sportech extended an agreement with Boyd Gaming's Evangeline Downs and Delta Downs racetracks in Louisiana and further expanded the agreement to include a third thoroughbred racetrack, Belterra Park in Ohio.

Boyd Gaming is one of the largest and most successful casino entertainment companies in the United States, where the company owns and operates 29 gaming properties.

Under the terms of the new agreement, Sportech will provide ToteServices to all three racetracks with its Quantum™ System software - the world's most widely-deployed pari-mutuel betting software. Betting devices deployed for the Boyd Gaming properties include Sportech's BetJet® Series for self-service and teller betting as well as the Digital Link® mobile betting app, which delivers a feature-rich betting experience for customers who prefer the convenience of mobile betting on track. Sportech will provide on-site maintenance and support of all Sportech terminals and systems.

Tom Kelso, Director of Sales, North America, commented, "Sportech are delighted to have extended this key U.S. client relationship and to welcome Belterra Park to the Sportech client base. This is a strong endorsement of Sportech's performance for the Boyd Gaming properties over several years and we look forward to continuing to provide racing and betting fans in Louisiana, and now at Belterra Park, with an exceptional betting experience."
