Boyd Reports Hurricane Rita Impact

27 September 2005

LAS VEGAS – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Boyd Gaming Corporation (NYSE: BYD) today reported that, upon a preliminary assessment, its Delta Downs Racetrack Casino and Hotel in Vinton, Louisiana experienced wind and water damage as the result of Hurricane Rita. Most apparent is roof damage that allowed water to enter the buildings. The building structures appear to have suffered little to no damage except for the horse barns. The Company is working with contractors to further assess the damage and commence work to restore the premises. The Company at this time cannot give a timeframe for the repairs or the reopening of the property.

William S. Boyd, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Boyd Gaming, said, "We are very focused on the health and safety of our employees and their families, and they remain our highest priority."

The Company further reported that its Sam's Town Shreveport property was not damaged as the storm moved through the area and that its Treasure Chest property in Kenner, Louisiana, remains closed due to conditions in the greater New Orleans area. Treasure Chest, as previously reported, sustained only minor physical damage from Hurricane Katrina.

For its 1,065 Delta Downs employees, the Company has established an employee assistance hotline and the number is 866.767.2740 or 702.792.7371. The Treasure Chest assistance line is 800.491.0711 or 702.792.7371. The Company also reported that it has reached nearly all of its 1,031 Treasure Chest employees. Information related to both recovery efforts is available on boydgaming.com. The Company's central relief center for both properties is located at its Sam's Town Tunica hotel casino in Mississippi.
