The Irish Greyhound Board (IGB) has sanctioned racing systems provider Sportech Plc to upgrade its Tote wagering services operating across its syndicated Ireland track portfolio.
Securing a multi-year agreement with the Sportech Racing and Digital division, IGB upgrades its current ‘Series 7 Tote’ to Sportech’s state-of-the-art Quantum™ System.
The agreement sees IGB partner with the ‘most widely deployed’ Tote betting system, thereby optimising the Irish greyhound racing wagering capacity with new pool bet types, increased market options and unmatched global pool commingling capabilities.
Joe Lewins, Director of Tote and Wagering at Irish Greyhound Board, stated: “The Irish Greyhound Board is happy to be making this important investment in our betting operation with the upgrade to Sportech’s Quantum™ Tote and look forward to delivering an overall improved betting experience to our players. Sportech have been an excellent technology partner to IGB for many years and we look forward to a continued productive relationship.”
Further developments will see Sportech’s Racing and Digital team develop tailored products and features for Irish greyhound racing to optimise its operations and customer engagements.
Bruno Gay, Sportech’s Vice President of Sales and Business Development EMEA, remarked: “Sportech are very pleased to extend the power of Quantum™ System to IGB and to offer them the pools, market reach, and operational tools to help them maximise their potential. We look forward to a continued strong business partnership with IGB that harnesses Sportech’s technologies to elevate the betting experience for their players.”
