Since launching the first generation of their historical horse racing machines, Scientific Games Corporation has announced a further expansion of the group’s capabilities.
Through a three-way collaboration with Churchill Downs Incorporated and Ainsworth Game Technology, Scientific Games will provide games to two CDI gaming assets that operate on the patented Ainsworth HHR programme, which uses race data under an exclusive licence.
Robert Parente, EVP and chief revenue officer for Scientific Games said: “The team at Scientific Games is extremely excited to partner with CDI and Ainsworth in this new venture.
“Both companies have been pioneers in opening up this burgeoning new segment of the gaming market and we are honoured they have chosen to work with us in offering the very best in player experiences.”
Louisville’s Derby City Gaming will receive the first delivery of SG games starting in February 2020, with approval from the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission.
This will be followed by Oak Grove Racing and Gaming which will receive their first computer delivery when they open their gaming facilities later in the year.
“Scientific Games makes some of the best-performing games in the industry and we are delighted to add them to our Derby City and Oak Grove properties,” stated Austin Miller, senior vice president, gaming operations for CDI.
“The sheer depth of their content library, along with their diverse and innovative hardware portfolio, enables us to considerably expand our game offering, giving our players the very best gaming action in the market. Our guests will recognise the Scientific Games themes and they will love the way the games play.”
Scientific Games will provide a range of slot titles like 88 Fortunes, Tree of Wealth, Quick Hit, Lock It Link and Ultimate Fire Link.
“We have enjoyed a great partnership with the CDI team, and are excited to bring in Scientific Games to this unique partnership,” added Ryan Comstock, chief operating officer for Ainsworth Game Technology. “The addition of SG games and platforms on our proprietary HHR system will create an even more robust gaming mix for both these properties.”
