HHR  HRM Konami Gaming, Inc. Churchill Downs Incorporated Star Watch Magma Fire

Ainsworth Game Technology (ASX:AGI) (“Ainsworth”) has partnered with Konami Gaming, Inc. to launch historical horse racing machines (“HRMs”) for Churchill Downs Incorporated (“CDI”).

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.

The machines will be deployed at CDI’s HRM facilities in Kentucky, including Derby City Gaming, Oak Grove Racing, Gaming & Hotel, and Newport Racing & 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.

“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.”

“This launch offers CDI guests even more opportunities to discover new game titles and enjoy a unique experience on the floor,” said Tom Jingoli, executive vice president & chief operating officer at Konami Gaming, Inc. “We are excited to work together to create more gaming possibilities for players and properties in the HRM space.”
