Danske Spil orders Sportech pari-mutuel upgrade

Danske Spil, Denmark’s state-owned sports betting and lottery operator, has upgraded its horse racing wagering capacity by integrating Sportech’s flagship Quantum solution within its retail point-of-sales network.

The Quantum upgrade will see Danske Spil’s entire retail network able to process pari-mutuel bets on horse racing, whilst providing a greater depth of pooled racing markets for customers.

Danske Spil confirmed that the integration of Quantum solutions will be led by Scientific Games as its lead wagering systems provider, with a view to launch pari-mutuel bets across 600 Danish retail outlets by the beginning of 2021.  

Niels Erik Folmann, CEO of Danske Licens Spil, stated: “We are pleased with the coordinated effort by Sportech and Scientific Games to make this growth initiative a reality for Danske Spil. The expansion of our horseracing pools will offer exciting new content to more players and generate additional support for the horseracing industry in Denmark.”

The partnership sees Sportech continue its strong 2020 commercial momentum. The racing systems provider has won and renewed key contracts with the UK Tote Group, the Hong Kong Jockey Club and  Macau Horseracing Company.

Bruno Gay, Sportech’s Senior Vice President Sales and Business Development EMEA, added: “Sportech is pleased to complete this key integration project that will allow our client, Danske Spil, to significantly increase distribution of its horseracing bets.

“The integration of Sportech’s Quantum™ System with terminals supplied by Scientific Games also opens the door for future opportunities to extend pari-mutuel pools betting on horseracing and other sports through their terminal network.”
