Boyd, Stardust’s History Extends Back to Las Vegas
Returning to Stardust and Boyd’s relationship with the famed (or infamous) Sin City casino.
In 1985, Boyd Gaming purchased the legally problematic Stardust Resort & Casino. From 1958 to 2006, the casino was located on the northern end of the Las Vegas Strip. Stardust imploded in 2007.
Genting Group’s Resorts World Las Vegas is now on the site.
What about FanDuel? Well, the largest online sportsbook operator in the United States will be alright.
Boyd owns 5% of FanDuel, which Flutter Entertainment plc owns. Prior to the US online sports betting boom, the Dublin-based gaming corporation wisely purchased the daily fantasy sports brand in 2018.
