ATLANTA, Nov. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sportech Racing and Digital, a division of Sportech PLC, (LSE: SPO), announced today that it will deliver Sportech's latest land-based and digital betting technologies to the patrons of Nebraska's Horsemen's Park and Lincoln Race Course, both operated by Omaha Exposition and Racing, Inc., under a new customer agreement.

Horsemen's Park and Lincoln Race Course selected Sportech as their new tote provider to deliver pari-mutuel betting services with Sportech's Quantum System software, Quantum Data Center services, and BetJet series wagering devices.  In addition, Horsemen's Park and Lincoln Race Course patrons will have access to the new Digital Link™ mobile suite, with patented digital voucher functionality.  Digital Link™ delivers exceptional customer service and convenience, while the digital voucher helps reduce the use of ticket paper, thereby lowering the environmental impact of the betting operation.
