Churchill Downs Inc. Purchases 1,250 Historical Racing Machines From International Game Technology

Churchill Downs Incorporated (“CDI” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: CHDN) announced Monday that it has entered into an agreement to purchase 1,250 historical racing machines (“HRMs”) from International Game Technology PLC (“IGT”).

The newly engineered IGT product will operate on Ainsworth Game Technology’s (“Ainsworth”) proprietary HRM system that was co-developed with CDI. These HRMs will feature many player-favorite themes on some of IGT’s highest performing hardware including the CrystalDual® 27, CrystalSlant™ and CrystalCurve™ cabinets and will leverage some of the most recognizable themes in the gaming industry such as Fortune Coin™, Griffin’s Throne™ and Stinkin’ Rich®.

HRMs are approved by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission and utilize the results of previously run live horse races to generate player outcomes.

CDI will utilize the IGT HRMs at their Kentucky gaming facilities including Derby City Gaming in Louisville, Oak Grove Racing, Gaming & Hotel in Oak Grove when it opens in September 2020, Newport Racing & Gaming in Newport when it opens in early fourth quarter 2020 and future facilities.

“CDI is excited to introduce IGT’s HRMs with their top-rated themes to our venues and players,” said Austin Miller, Senior Vice President, Gaming Operations for CDI. “IGT’s vast content library and reputation for delivering world-class products aligns with our commitment to delivering premier gaming and entertainment experiences to our guests.”

IGT joins Ainsworth and Scientific Games as gaming suppliers for CDI’s HRM facilities in Kentucky resulting in a diverse portfolio of innovative and top-performing gaming entertainment offerings at each location.
