Riverwalk Casino Hotel – the most exciting land-based casino destination in Vicksburg, MS. Enjoy the best in gaming, delicious dining choices and beautiful hotel rooms, many with lovely views of the Mississippi River.
Riverwalk is owned by CDI, well known as Churchill Downs Incorporated. Its namesake racetrack, Churchill Downs, in Louisville, Ky., opened in 1875 and during its inaugural race meeting featured two races, the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks, which still highlight Churchill Downs’ live racing calendar today.
Today, the Twin Spires still proudly reign over Churchill Downs’ homestretch, and Kentucky Derby champions race by these architectural features turned trademarks on their way to the finish line, the Winner’s Circle and the history books.
As the Kentucky Derby legacy has evolved over 130-plus years, so has CDI’s stable of businesses. The publicly traded company has evolved from one world-famous venue in Central Kentucky to the United States’ premier racing, gaming and entertainment company with a myriad of holdings, including:
- Five racetracks;
- Six casinos;
- The country’s leading online wagering business, TwinSpires.com;
- A video poker business
- A multi-state network of off-track betting (OTB) facilities; and
- A collection of racing-related data, totalisator and telecommunication companies that support CDI’s sports and gaming operations.
CDI now employs more than 5,000 people and maintains physical operations in eleven states: California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, New York, Ohio, and Washington.
