LOUISVILLE, Ky.- Churchill Downs may be famous for the Kentucky Derby, but it’s looking to offer all sorts of betting experiences.

The company's online sportsbook, TwinSpires, now offers online slot machine gameplay.

TwinSpires, originally a horse race betting provider, partnered with Lightning Box to bring several slot machine games to their online sportsbook and casino.

Three games are already up and running, and they’re among the most popular offerings that Lightning Box has: Lightning Horseman, Lightning Leopard and ChickenFox.

Lightning Box is not new to the business of integrating online slot machine play with online sportsbooks in the United States. The Australian company has already worked with online casinos in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and now is looking to add Michigan to the mix.

CEO of Lightning Box Peter Causley issued the following statement:

“Churchill Downs needs no introduction to sports fans, as it’s the home of the famous Kentucky Derby, and now it is great to see that its’ TwinSpires sportsbook and casino brand is also making big impressions,” said Causley. “Lightning Box also has a long heritage in the States and our games are loved by lots of Americans. We’re very much looking forward to sharing them with even more people in Michigan.”

Churchill Downs’ iGaming Vice President Richard Sagman also discussed the deal:

“Lightning Box produces good quality games that our customers will enjoy and we’re excited about the opportunities that this new cooperation presents. TwinSpires is backed by the Churchill Downs team that has more than 140 years of racing wagering history in the United States and is now leading the way with its new online sportsbook and casino product.”

The two companies seem happy with their partnership, and online gamblers in Michigan should be happy with the new slot additions to TwinSpires’ online sportsbook.
