TwinSpires, The Race Fan’s Sportsbook
From an upfront cash bonus to stellar promos and an emphasis on horse racing, the sportsbook owned by Churchill Downs is a winner with bettors.
With the Kentucky Derby just around the corner on May 1, there’s no better time to look at TwinSpires.com, the official sports betting partner of Churchill Downs Inc. (CDI).
CDI owns both TwinSpires and BetAmerica, but has been phasing out the latter brand in favor of its more recognizable partner, so-named for the identical spires above the historic Lexington grandstand.
Just in time for Derby Day, CDI launched its TwinSpires app in both Indiana and Colorado, and the TwinSpires Casino and Sports app in Pennsylvania. You can also wager with TwinSpires in Michigan and Tennessee, and next up, sports fans in New Jersey will be able to get in on the fast-paced action at TwinSpires. (BTW, if you’re traveling, TwinSpires also has six retail books at locations in Colorado, Indiana, Mississippi and Pennsylvania.)
The mobile app, available for both iOS and Android users, has an intuitive design and big, bold graphics that make it easy to view and navigate, without guesswork or maze-wandering. The app is also quick and responsive, a plus when it comes to live updates and streaming, video replays and ever-evolving stats and odds.
Home of Horse Racing
TwinSpires is the acknowledged leader in online horse race betting in the United States. You’ll find betting opportunities on thoroughbred, quarter horse and harness tracks from around the globe, plus all manner of bets, from split/mixed odds to multi-layered bets to exactas, trifectas, super-trifectas and so on.

Sign Up & Get Bonused
Create your new wagering account with TwinSpires.com, and you’ll earn an instant $200 sign-up bonus! The bonus cash is credited in increments of $100 for every $400 you wager, within 30 days of signup.
The bonus for TwinSpires Casino is even more generous. $500 in risk-free play in the first 24 hours and 250 free spins on slots.
And sports fans who sign up to wager get a $1,000 risk-free bet at TwinSpires Sports.
Better still, TwinSpires likes to mix up the offers and throw in lots of free-to-play contests. This week alone, visitors to Twin Spires Racing would find the First Race Free Play, Weekly Wednesday Trifecta, Spot Play Thursday, Mid-Week BetBack, and the $1,000 Weekend Leaderboard Challenge.
TwinSpires.com calls itself the “Kentucky Derby of online sportsbooks.” From its roots in the Sport of Kings, the operator has made in-roads in multiple U.S. markets and expanded far beyond the track to serve bettors of all persuasions. Look for TwinSpires to become a favorite of U.S. sports bettors due to its sharp lines, generous promotions, and commitment to making you a better bettor.
TwinSpires currently has a separate app for horseracing and casino/sports betting. It hopes to resolve this when regulations allow. And the rules for signing up are a little different too. Horseracing bettors can sign up for if they live in a state where the wagers are permitted.
You can literally be anywhere to register for a sports betting or casino account, but you can’t play unless you are within the state boundaries where wagering is permitted. New legislation is pending in many states so this list continues to grow. One thing is for certain, whether you call them BetAmerica or TwinSpires, whether it’s horseracing, casino or sports betting, this Churchill Downs brand is a winner in our book.
