Headquartered in Las Vegas and operating 17 entertainment and gaming properties in the US, Boyd Gaming has a partnership agreement with bwin.party. Boyd Gaming’s B Connected Online was recently awarded a Gold “Stevie” Award for Best Hospitality and Leisure Website at the 2012 International Business Awards; its B Connected Mobile earned a Silver Award in the Travel App category. It’s hoping to extend its portfolio with operating, distribution, and gambling system manufacturing licenses from the NGC.
The final decision for the license should be revealed this week, although it would be more breaking news to report who didn’t receive them than who did. Should the decision go as expected, the above companies will join the ranks of eight others who have been approved for such licenses, including Shuffle Master, IGT, Monarch Interactive and Bally Technologies.
