Churchill Downs has secured approval for sports betting in Tennessee.
Churchill Downs drew approval from the Tennessee Lottery’s Sports Wagering Committee, joining FanDuel, BetMGM, DraftKings, and Tennessee Action 24/7.
Churchill Downs’ sportsbook, BetAmerica, is rebranding as TwinSpires. BetAmerica is live in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Indiana.
Some steps remain before Churchill Downs’ Tennessee launch, said lottery CEO Rebecca Hargove. Another meeting planned late this month will give more applicants the chance for possible approval and launch before the Super Bowl, she said.
