Boyd launch South Coast property

Boyd Gaming Corporation has officially opened its newest property, South Coast Hotel and
Casino.
Bill Boyd, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Boyd Gaming, commented
on the opening, “South Coast is ideally located to attract a growing locals
market, as well as a significant number of tourists, given its strategic
location to both residential and tourist corridor patrons.”
  Located five miles south of Mandalay Bay on Las Vegas Boulevard and
adjacent to Interstate 15, South Coast is the first major casino entertainment
property to be located in the fast-growing southern Las Vegas area.  The
$600 million property offers affordable luxury in the way of beautiful
accommodations, distinctive dining experiences and a wide array of gaming
entertainment amenities.  In addition to a spacious, fully-equipped 80,000
square-foot casino, the development also includes seven restaurants, a
16 screen Century Theatre complex, a 64 lane bowling center, and expansive
meeting, exhibit and convention space.  Unique to South Coast will be a
world-class equestrian center with seating for 4,400 spectators.
  A second hotel tower is under construction and planned to open in the
second quarter 2006, adding 700 guest rooms and suites.  Opening with the
second tower will be a luxurious spa with more than 20 treatment rooms, a
nightclub and showroom, and an outdoor recreation area complete with oversized
swimming pool and sand volleyball courts.
