Boyd Gaming is celebrating 40 years of “Boyd Style” with a nationwide cash giveaway. Now through Sept. 5, guests can earn entries into a grand prize drawing when 40 winners will take home their share of $400,000.
The grand prize drawing will be hosted at Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall on Saturday, Sept. 5, by executive chairman Bill Boyd. The event will be simulcast to 21 Boyd Gaming properties.
One winner will win a grand prize of $40,000, while 39 runners-up will take home $10,000 each.
Throughout the Las Vegas valley, Boyd Gaming properties will offer many ways to earn entries into the grand prize drawing as well as anniversary-related promotions. Customers can visit any Boyd Gaming property to earn entries into the grand prize drawing, with four people selected from each property to participate in the September drawing. For more details on how to earn entries, visit a B Connected or Prime Rewards desk.
At the Orleans, Suncoast, Gold Coast and Sam’s Town, 40th Anniversary cash drawings will be held every Saturday in August offering guests the chance to take home up to $10,000 cash. From Sunday through Thursday each week, B Connected members need only earn four points then swipe their card at a kiosk in order to enter into that Saturday’s drawing, and all entries are valid for the grand prize giveaway at the end of the promotion.
In addition to the nationwide contest, individual Boyd Gaming properties throughout Las Vegas will be hosting their own anniversary promotions and celebrations.
