Casino operators MGM Resorts International and Boyd Gaming Corp. on July 30 said they have teamed up to expand their online and mobile gaming presence across the U.S.
The two aim to increase each of their market access and customer base in the country. They will operate land-based gaming facilities in 15 states, including Nevada, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Missouri and New Jersey.
Under the partnership, the companies will be able to offer online and mobile gaming platforms in areas where either Boyd Gaming or MGM Resorts operate physical casino resorts and online licenses.
Boyd Gaming President and CEO Keith Smith said in a statement that the tie-up will allow the company to add an online presence in five additional states.
Meanwhile, MGM said it intends to provide the acquired market access to its newly formed joint venture with GVC Holdings PLC, which it announced the same day.
