Lightning Box Complete Latest US Expansion Via Churchill Downs’ TwinSpires

Lightning Box, located in Sydney, has finished the latest stage of its US expansion, with titles now available on Churchill Downs’ TwinSpires online sportsbook and casino site in Michigan.

Three of the company’s most famous slots, ChickenFox, Lightning Horseman, and Lightning Leopard, will be available on TwinSpires casino, which is named after the iconic spires at Kentucky’s Churchill Downs racetrack pavilion.

The provider made its first foray into the Great Lakes State in January, when it launched its newly controlled online market via SG Digital, building on traction from previous forays into New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

TwinSpires sportsbook and casino brand making big impressions

Lightning Box’s CEO and co-founder, Peter Causley, said: “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 reported that its retail, mobile, and internet sportsbooks in Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania will all transition to the Twinspires name in the first half of the year.

‘Good quality games’

Churchill Downs’ VP of igaming, Richard Sagman, 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.”
