Happy New Year!
Boyd Gaming has completed its acquisition of the Las Vegas assets of Cannery Casino Resorts. The addition of both properties expands Boyd Gaming’s presence to 12 properties in the Southern Nevada, and 24 nationwide.
Both Cannerys will remain mostly unchanged for the foreseeable future and current operating hours for the many amenities at each venue will remain the same. However, the properties are expected to join Boyd Gaming’s award-winning, nationwide loyalty program, B Connected, in 2017. The transaction follows Boyd Gaming’s acquisition of North Las Vegas’ Aliante Casino, Hotel and Spa in Sept. 2016.
There will be a $500,000 Spin 2 Win every Sunday through Wednesday throughout January. Club members who earn 500 same day points on slot machines or 2,000 same day points on video poker machines will have the opportunity to push the U-Spin button for a chance at a prize.
