With hundreds of historical horse racing machines, you’re sure to find a favorite at Kentucky Downs. We offer 750 Exacta Systems terminals with a total of 61 unique game titles. Correctly predict the finishing position of as many of the horses from the three historical horse races as you can, and you could be on your way to a jackpot!

Kentucky Downs is pleased to offer a designated non-smoking area for guests, located on the right side of the building near our non-smoking Lucky 7s restaurant and High Limit room.

Pari-Mutuel Wagering

Rather than playing against the house, pari-mutuel wagering allows you to wager against other guests. All wagers are combined in a collective pool.

Jackpot Pools

Each of our games is identified by denomination and color. This categorization will determine which jackpot amount you are playing for.

To determine which jackpot you are playing for, you may visit the jackpot tracker located on our gaming floor or on our website here to view the various jackpot pools in real time. For example, if you wanted to play the Penny Slate jackpot pool, you can check the current jackpot amount and find the machine that has that jackpot pool displayed along with the .01 cent bet option.

Note: Machines are not physically color-coded according to the jackpot pools. Please use the method above or ask an attendant if needed.
