US-based casino operator Boyd Gaming has just announced that it would be reopening its venues in Mississippi and Louisiana, after they were forced to close temporarily due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
Boyd said it plans to reopen its Evangeline Downs Racetrack Casino Hotel, Delta Downs Ractrack Casino Hotel, and Treasure Chest Casino in Louisiana on May 20. Sam’s Town Shreveport and Amelia Belle Casino will follow suit next week.
The operator hopes to reopen its Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall and IP Casino Resort Spa in Mississippi on May 21.
These venues will be the first of the Boyd properties to reopen after all its US properties were forced to close in mid-March, abiding by the state mandates intended to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus.
