Boyd Gaming launches sports betting in Mississippi

3 August 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Boyd Gaming Corporation today announced that it opened sportsbooks today at its two Mississippi properties – IP Casino Resort and Spa in Biloxi and Sam's Town Tunica Hotel & Gambling Hall — following the receipt of final approval from the Mississippi Gaming Commission.

The sports betting operations are Boyd Gaming's first sportsbooks outside of the state of Nevada. Boyd Gaming currently operates 10 sportsbooks at its properties across southern Nevada.

"The debut of our sports books in Mississippi, together with our recently-announced strategic partnership with FanDuel Group, are important milestones for our Company as we begin to participate in the expansion of sports betting across the United States," said Keith Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer of Boyd Gaming. "Expanded sports betting is an exciting growth opportunity, offering us another way to diversify our business and expand our appeal – and Boyd Gaming is well-positioned to be a leader in this emerging business."
