Lightning Box deepens US footprint via Churchill Downs’ TwinSpires

Lightning Box has rolled-out the latest stage of its TwinSpires US expansion, as the Sydney headquartered online casino slot supplier takes titles live on the Churchill Downs online sportsbook and casino platform in Michigan.

This will see the group launch three of its most popular slots, namely ChickenFox, Lightning Horseman and Lightning Leopard, on TwinSpires casino, which is named after the iconic spires at Churchill Downs racetrack pavilion in Kentucky. 

The provider made its debut in the Great Lakes State in January, when its newly regulated online market went live, via SG Digital, maintaining momentum picked-up from previously entries into New Jersey and Pennsylvania. 

Peter Causley, CEO and co-founder of Lightning Box, commented: “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.

“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 recently launched its Twinspires mobile and online sportsbook in Tennessee and announced that its retail, mobile and online sportsbooks in Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey and Pennsylvania would all transition to the brand in the first half of the year.

Richard Sagman, VP of igaming for Churchill Downs, added: “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.”
