Boyd Gaming Corp. and gaming machines manufacturer Aristocrat Technologies Inc. said Aug. 8 that they expanded their existing partnership, allowing the casino operator to combine all of its properties under its B Connected player loyalty program.
Under the extended agreement, Aristocrat will become Boyd's official casino management systems partner, providing its Oasis 360 system to all 24 of Boyd's casino properties in the U.S., which also operates more than 31,000 slot machines.
Aristocrat's Oasis 360 system includes slot management, bonusing, digital, table management, single card loyalty solutions, kiosk and a media management hub.
In addition, the two Las Vegas-based companies will jointly develop new gaming features, such as bonus games and jackpots, that will be available at any Boyd Gaming property.
The company, which operates in seven states across the U.S., on Aug. 2 entered into a strategic partnership with Paddy Power Betfair PLC-owned daily fantasy sports provider FanDuel Inc.
As part of the deal, Boyd Gaming will use the New York-based company's technology and related services to operate Boyd Gaming-branded mobile and online sports-betting and gaming services.
