Boyd Gaming Completes Acquisition of Las Vegas Cannery Casinos
Boyd Gaming today announced that it 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 properties nationwide.
“The Cannery transaction, along with our recent acquisition of Aliante, further expands Boyd Gaming’s presence in the high-performing Las Vegas locals market,” said Keith Smith, Boyd Gaming president and chief executive officer.
Both properties will remain mostly unchanged for the foreseeable future and current operating hours for each property’s many amenities will remain the same. However, the properties are expected to join Boyd Gaming’s award-winning, nationwide loyalty program – B Connected – in 2017.
Cannery Casino Hotel, located on Craig Road, joins the Company as the second Boyd Gaming property in North Las Vegas. The property has an expansive 80,000-square-foot casino and a well-appointed 200-room hotel, plus five restaurants, including Waverly’s Steakhouse and Cannery Row Buffet. The property’s 30,000-square-foot entertainment venue, The Club, is a versatile venue that can expand out to the property’s pool deck and hosts a variety of tribute artists and special events.
Eastside Cannery Casino and Hotel, located next to Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall on Boulder Highway, expands Boyd Gaming’s presence on the east side of the Las Vegas Valley. With a spacious 64,000-square-foot casino, 300 hotel rooms, and a massive 20,000-square-foot meeting and event space, the property is well positioned for special events like weddings, banquets and more. The property’s Eastside Event Center regularly hosts classic rock favorites, with Vince Neil hosting a New Year’s Eve celebration in just a few weeks.
The transaction follows Boyd Gaming’s acquisition of North Las Vegas’ Aliante Casino + Hotel + Spa in September 2016. For more information on Cannery Casino Hotel and Eastside Cannery Casino and Hotel, visit www.cannerycasino.com and www.eastsidecannery.com.
