Sportech Racing and Digital, a division of Sportech PLC, is pleased to have once again delivered the international technology connectivity behind the UK Tote Group's Tote Superpool at Royal Ascot.

Following on from the 2019 World Pool, the 2020 Tote Superpool was powered by Sportech's Quantum™ System, the world's most widely deployed pari-mutuel betting system, and supported with hosting and operational services from Sportech.

The Tote Superpool combined the betting pools on Royal Ascot races generated by UK Tote Group with tote betting from global outlets and the Royal Ascot pools hosted by the Hong Kong Jockey Club. Despite no on-track contribution to the pools as a result of COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 Tote Superpool generated £137 million in handle, up from £92 million in 2019. This year, Sportech facilitated the expansion of Superpools to all 36 races.

Sportech are proud to have once again provided the international pool connectivity and operational services to support the Tote Superpool and to assist our clients in forging valuable global connections between international commingling partners.
