One of the leading American casino operators the Churchill Downs Incorporated company has just announced that it will be partnering with Ainsworth Game Technology and Scientific Games Corporation in order to bring a brand-new series of historical racing games to its customers in Kentucky. Churchill Downs Incorporated is the subsidiary of Churchill Downs located in Louisville, in the state of Kentucky.
Since its inception, the company has evolved massively from owning and operating only one racetrack in its hometown to operating multiple casinos and racetracks across the United States. Today, Churchill Downs Incorporated is a multi-million company which in addition to operating casinos and racetracks also successfully operates online gaming ventures.
The company emerged on the scene back in 1875 when it opened its very first racetrack. The company’s founder Meriwether Lewis Clark, later on, devised the brilliant idea of a Jockey Club after traveling in France in England. Upon his return to the United States, Mr. Clark started working on his racetrack which would showcase the breeding industry in the state. This racetrack would, later on, become what we know today as the iconic Churchill Downs racetrack.
In the years to come, Churchill Downs Incorporated started working on expanding its ventures. In 1994, it has purchased the Hoosier Park venue form Louis Carlo. Then, four years later the company also bought Ellis Park Racecourse located in Henderson. Since 2000, Churchill Downs Incorporated Fair Grounds Race Course, Harlow’s Casino Resort located in Greenville, Mississippi as well as the Riverwalk Casino and Hotel venue located in Vicksburg among several other properties.
Partnering with Ainsworth Game Technology and Scientific Games Corporation
As mentioned at the beginning, the Louisville-based company used one of its official press releases to share more details about its latest business alliance. As revealed by the company’s officials, the business deal will see the company’s iconic Derby City Gaming facility roll out the brand-new titles crafted Scientific Games Corporation via utilizing a flagship proprietary system which is provided by Ainsworth Game Technology.
Churchill Downs Incorporated revealed that these upcoming games were just recently approved by the state’s Horse Racing Commission. It was also revealed that the games will utilize their own historical data which means that horse racing fans in the state will be allowed to place real-money wagers on the outcomes of horse races previously run. The American operator also revealed that the new games will also permit bettors to fully manually handicap their chosen contests before they sit back and enjoy watching animated replays of their selected races.
Derby City Gaming Offering an Excellent Game Selection
The operator’s Derby City Gaming venue is located around six miles from the company’s flagship Churchill Downs racetrack. The venue’s casino floor is already home to one thousand slot games while the new business alliance will significantly boost its offering with very popular versions of the Lock It Link, Ultimate Fire Link, 88 Fortunes, Tree of Wealth, and Quick Hit titles crafted by Scientific Games Corporation.
The company’s officials also said that these gaming innovations should be available to Kentucky gamers at the Derby City Gaming venue before the end of March. According to the company’s Gaming Operations Senior Vice-President, the new racing games accompanied by their historical data are destined to become one of the most prominent gaming features at the company’s Oak Grove and Turfway Park Racing and Gaming venues later this year.
