Casino games developer Lightning Box has just launched the latest stage of its TwinSpires US expansion, as it takes titles live on Churchill Downs’ TwinSpires online sportsbook and casino platform in Michigan.
This move will see the Sydney-based online casino supplier launch three of its most popular slots, Lightning Leopard, Lightning Horseman and ChickenFox, on TwinSpires casino.
Lightning Box made its debut in the Great Lakes State in January, when its newly regulated online market went live, through SG Digital, keeping momentum it picked up from previous entries into Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
“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 it’ TwinSpires sportsbook and casino brand is also making big impressions,” Peter Causley, Lightning Box CEO and Co-founder, said.
“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,” he added.
Churchill Downs recently introduced its Twinspires mobile and online sportsbook in the state of Tennessee. It also announced that its mobile, retail, and online sportsbook in Michigan, Indiana, Mississippi, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey would all transition to the brand in the first six months of the year.
“Lightning Box produces good quality games that our customers will enjoy and we’re excited about the opportunities that this new cooperation presents,” Richard Sagman, Churchill Downs VP of igaming, said.
“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,” he added.
