Boyd Gaming gets ready to reopen 13 casinos in various states
The casino operator will have new venues open beginning next week
As the US economy starts to find means of recovery, gambling venues are preparing to relaunch their services. Another large casino operator, Boyd Gaming, has announced that 13 more of its gambling venues are getting ready to reopen soon, which is great news for gamblers in Las Vegas and elsewhere. The path to recovery, however, will be uphill for a while, given the millions of dollars in revenue casinos have lost thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.
After Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak confirmed that casinos in Nevada are allowed to reopen as of June 4, Boyd Gaming has confirmed the reopening of 13 of its venues in Sin City: Aliante, Canner, California, Fremont, Gold Coast, Jokers Wild, The Orleans, Sam’s Town and Suncoast are some of them. For now, Boyd’s East Side Canner, Eldorado and Main Street Station will remain closed until further notice. Besides those venues in Nevada, on June 1, the company will reopen Ameristar St. Charles and Ameristar Kansas City in Missouri, as well as the Diamond Jo Dubuque and the Diamond Jo Worth in Iowa.
“Upon reopening, all properties will operate with limited amenities and capacity restrictions in compliance with state and local requirements. Additionally, all Boyd Gaming properties will practice ‘Boyd Clean,’ a set of comprehensive protocols aimed at protecting the health and safety of our team members and guests,” said the company in a press release.
These are not the first gambling venues the company reopened; Louisiana venues went back to business earlier this month. Still waiting for the green light are the venues located in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania so the company can reopen Par-A-Dice, Belterra, Blue Chip, Belterra Park and Valley Forge Casino.
