Boyd Gaming's Delta Downs Casino to Reopen

27 October 2005

LAS VEGAS – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Boyd Gaming Corporation (NYSE: BYD) today announced that its Delta Downs Racetrack Casino and Hotel in Vinton, Louisiana is scheduled to reopen on November 3, pending regulatory approval. While the casino will be fully operational, the Company expects to have a limited number of hotel rooms and food outlets available at that time, with the balance coming on line by the end of the year. The Company also expects that horseracing at Delta Downs will begin shortly after the first of the year as repair work on those facilities continues. As previously reported, the property suffered both wind and water damage as a result of Hurricane Rita and has been closed since September 22.

Bill Boyd, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Boyd Gaming Corporation, said, "The revitalization of the Lake Charles area is well underway and we look forward to furthering that effort and welcoming back our employees and guests. With the re-opening of Treasure Chest on October 10 and Delta Downs set for November 3, we will soon have all of our Louisiana operations functioning following the recent storms."

The Company will report its third quarter results on Thursday, November 3 and hold a conference call on that day at 4:15 p.m. EST. Among other things, the Company will discuss the financial impact of both hurricanes relative to its Louisiana operations.
