Kentucky-based Churchill Downs Inc. (CDI) has launched its online sports betting and casino offering in New Jersey in partnership with Golden Nugget Casino.

The launch follows the signing of an agreement between the companies in May 2018 and sees CDI offer an SBTech-powered sportsbook through its BetAmerica brand, alongside an online casino featuring products from IGT PlayDigital, NetEnt, Spin Games, Everi, Konami, and others.

“We are excited to introduce our online BetAmerica Sportsbook and online casino platform to New Jersey residents,” said Bill Carstanjen, chief executive of CDI. “We look forward to delivering innovative, state-of-the-art products that we believe will exceed our customers’ expectations by leveraging our deep experience as the leader in online horse race wagering through our TwinSpires platform.”

CDI launched its inaugural sportsbook under the BetAmerica brand at its Harlow’s Casino Resort & Spa in Greenville, and Riverwalk Casino Hotel in Vicksburg, Mississippi, in August 2018.

Shares in Churchill Downs Inc. (NSQ:CDI) closed in New York Thursday down 1.06 per cent at $91.42 per share.
