Boyd has agreed the sale of Eldorado Casino Henderson casino to DeSimone Gaming.

US.- Boyd Gaming announced the sale of Eldorado Casino Henderson in Nevada to DeSimone Gaming. It has not disclosed the price.

Boyd’s vice president of corporate communications, David Strow, said: “Yes, I can confirm that we have sold the Eldorado Casino to DeSimone Gaming.  We are not disclosing terms of this transaction.

“The Eldorado was a non-core asset to our Company, and as we have continued to grow over the years, this property represented a very modest part of our overall business.”

Back in August, Eldorado Casino asked Henderson City Council for a non-operational licence to remain closed until June 2021.

Boyd owns 29 properties in 10 states, many of which were forced to implement layoffs as a result of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Meanwhile, Boyd has bought a vacant mall in Elk Grove, California, to serve as the site for its Sacramento casino project in collaboration with the Wilton Rancheria tribe.
