Kazamias, the Club's General Manager, ``From our standpoint, Autotote's equipment was clearly the best available, both technologically and based on reliability.''

We can go up against anyone in the world and win. In contest after contest our equipment has been deemed technologically superior and our services have proven highly reliable. We intend to keep ahead of the curve, innovating in both equipment and delivery of facilities management services to maintain our robust growth.''
