TwinSpires, the Churchill Downs-owned industry-leading online wagering platform for horse racing and sports, is excited to launch its sports betting app and desktop product in Tennessee today.

To celebrate its much-anticipated launch in the Volunteer State, TwinSpires offered Tennesseans its best-ever new player sign-up promotion.

New TwinSpires online sports bettors in Tennessee were eligible for up to $1,000 in bonus bets to utilize over a seven-day period upon early launch.

"TwinSpires is thrilled to be launching its state-of-the-art sports betting app and desktop product in Tennessee just in time for March Madness," said Ian Williams, President of TwinSpires.

"Because we’re backed by Churchill Downs, the home of the Kentucky Derby, we can leverage nearly 150 years of wagering expertise to offer Tennesseans the best possible sports betting experience."

In addition to horse racing, TwinSpires players in Tennessee will now be able to bet on professional sports including NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL and PGA, as well collegiate sports and events from around the world.

TwinSpires’ parent company, Churchill Downs Incorporated, announced earlier this year that all of its BetAmerica sportsbooks would rebrand as TwinSpires in the first half of 2021. The mix of retail and online sportsbooks that have either transitioned – or are in the process of transitioning – to TwinSpires, are currently available in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Mississippi, Michigan and Colorado.
