Sportech extends agreement with Jockey Club del Perú

16 September 2020

Sportech's Racing and Digital tote betting solutions divison has extended its services agreement with long-term client, the Jockey Club del Perú.

Sportech currently supplies its pari-mutuel betting solution to the Latin American operator, through its Quantum System software. Sportech also supplies its hosting and operations services from the Global Quantum Data and Operations Centre in the US, providing its services to the Hipódromo de Monterrico in Lima and to the Jockey Club del Perú’s network of betting shops.

In addition to extending its tote services engagement, the new agreement includes upgrades to the Spanish language betting website first deployed for the Jockey Club in 2018. The operator will now receive its latest white label betting platform designed for use across desktop and mobile devices.

“We are pleased to extend Sportech’s partnership with the Jockey Club del Perú and to offer further enhancements to their digital platforms that will elevate the betting experience they offer their players, whether betting at the track or through digital channels," Sportech director of sales and business development for Latin America Sean Bishop said.

It is the latest extension signed by the business, after Sportech extended its commingling agreement with Racecourse Media Group, the holding company responsible for a range of media rights management businesses involving 34 of the UK’s largest racecourses, in August.

Earlier this month, meanwhile, the supplier also became an associate member of the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries.

It recently revealed that losses had widened five-fold in the first half of 2020, as the impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) led to a 38.7% drop in revenue to £20.2m (€22.2m/$26.3m).

Of its £20.2m in revenue, £13.1m came from the racing and digital division, down 27.4%, amid the cancellation of most horse racing worldwide.
