Ainsworth Game Technology has partnered with Konami Gaming to launch historical horse racing machines at Churchill Downs’ properties in Kentucky.
Konami’s newly-engineered historical horse racing machines will operate on Ainsworth’s proprietary Historical Horse Racing System. Konami’s HRMs include a suite of popular game titles and cabinet platforms.
“We have maintained strong and mutually beneficial relations with CDI since Ainsworth developed the systems and led the opening of Derby City Gaming with nearly 1,000 games about two years ago,” said Ainsworth chief commercial officer Deron Hunsberger. “The addition of Konami content and platforms to our system will provide an even stronger product mix at the CDI properties.”
The machines will be deployed at Churchill Downs HRM facilities in Kentucky, including Derby City Gaming, Oak Grove Racing, Gaming and Hotel, and Newport Racing and Gaming. Players can experience a variety of Konami game play entertainment, with the potential for free games, progressive jackpots, bonus awards, and other exciting prizes.
“This launch offers CDI guests even more opportunities to discover new game titles and enjoy a unique experience on the floor,” said Tom Jingoli, EVP and COO at Konami Gaming. “We are excited to work together to create more gaming possibilities for players and properties in the HRM space.”
