he Kentucky Derby is the world’s premier horse race and America’s original, extravagant and glamorous springtime sports party. Now all the excitement and tradition of “The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports” is captured in the new 5-reel RFX stepper game that brings 136 years of brand recognition to casinos across North America.
Aristocrat President Nick Khin said, “We are thrilled with the new game and with this new relationship with Churchill Downs. Aristocrat is a company with a history of firsts, and we are very proud to be the first gaming company to license the historic Kentucky Derby brand, and we know casino operators and players will love the game.”
The new slot premiered at Churchill Downs’ Calder Casino in Miami Gardens, Florida, and Fair Grounds Race Course and Slots in New Orleans. The penny slot is making its debut with a choice of two unique, themed launch base games: Oaks Day and Run for the Roses.
In Kentucky Derby, slot players will race for a four-level interactive jackpot with a Hyperlink trigger. The fun intensifies in the interactive bonus game, when players watch a “live” running of the Kentucky Derby on an LCD screen at the top of the machine. Players then touch the reels to play along.
