Boyd Gaming Corporation reported earnings of $.14 per share in the second quarter ending June 30, an increase from the $.13 figure of last year at this time.

Seven of the company's eight operating units exceeded prior year's quarterly results. Sam's Town Las Vegas went above prior year figures in the second quarter for the first time since the first quarter of 2000.

Only the Stardust trailed the prior year's quarterly results. Boyd increased its debt by $102 million in the quarter, based on the $127 million acquisition of Delta Downs Racetrack in Louisiana.
