19 May 2020

US casino operator Boyd Gaming has announced that it is to reopen its facilities in Louisiana and Mississippi, after the sites were forced to temporarily close due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Boyd said it plans to open its Delta Downs Racetrack Casino Hotel, Evangeline Downs Racetrack Casino Hotel and Treasure Chest Casino in Louisiana on May 20, with Amelia Belle Casino and Sam’s Town Shreveport to follow next week.

The operator is also hoping to reopen its IP Casino Resort Spa and Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall in Mississippi on May 21.

These will be the first Boyd properties to reopen following the closure of all its US properties in mid-March, following state mandates aimed at preventing the spread of coronavirus.
