Sportech Bug Causes False Carryover at the Meadowlands

Saturday, September 26, 2020

Statement regarding the Meadowlands Racetrack’s September 25th race 13 pentafecta payout.  

“When we noticed a carryover posted for our last race pentafecta, it immediately raised a red flag for us,” stated the Meadowlands Racetrack’s GM & COO Jason Settlemoir.  “We reached out to our tote provider Sportech and asked them to research the wager for us.” 

Ted Shaine, General Manger/QDC East for Sportech Racing issued the following statement:
“ For the 13th race Pentafecta pool on 25-SEP-20, the system encountered a software bug and did not properly detect tickets with 5/5 winners and therefore created a carryover.  The carryover has been removed from tonight's (Sept 26th) card and wagers with 5/5 from last night will be paid manually. The software bug has been corrected for tonight's (Sept 26th)  card.”

“We appreciate Sportech researching this quickly,” said Settlemoir. “Racing and wagering integrity is of the utmost importance to us.  We will continue to work with Sportech and the New Jersey Racing Commission on this issue.” 


All bettors are urged to hold their September 25th last race pentafecta tickets if they had 5-for-5 so they can be properly paid out.
