NEW HAVEN, Conn., March 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Sportech Racing and Digital, a division of Sportech PLC, (LSE: SPO), has been selected by Bensalem Racing Association, Inc. and Keystone Turf Club, Inc. to provide all new digital platforms for web and mobile betting on horse racing through Parx Racing®. The digital contract is part of a broader agreement to extend the contract to provide totalisator services to Parx Racing® at its Bensalem, PA race course and associated off-track betting locations.

Parx Racing® has been a customer of Sportech Racing and Digital for decades, with Sportech providing its Quantum(TM) System pari-mutuel betting software, betting devices, and operational services.
