Boyd Gaming Corporation has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Boyd Interactive Gaming, has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Pala Interactive and its subsidiaries for total cash consideration of $170 million.

“The acquisition of Pala Interactive marks the next phase in the ongoing execution of our iGaming strategy, providing us full control over the technology, development and customer experience. By integrating online casinos with our existing land-based operations, we will be able to further leverage and monetize our expansive customer database and the amenities of our nationwide portfolio of properties, driving growth in both our land-based and iGaming operations,” Keith Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer of Boyd Gaming, said.

“Given our nationwide geographic distribution, significant database and established loyalty program, it makes sense for us to pursue a direct approach with our iGaming operations. By engaging directly with our guests and having the ability to personalize the customer experience, we are confident in our ability to create a cost-effective and profitable regional iGaming business. While the acquisition of Pala Interactive supports our iGaming strategy, we remain fully committed to our sports-betting partnership with FanDuel, which has allowed us to participate in the nationwide expansion of sports-betting. We look forward to welcoming the Pala Interactive team to our Company and building a highly successful online gaming business in the years ahead,” Smith added.

Morrison & Foerster LLP served as legal advisor to Boyd Gaming for the transaction, while Moelis & Company LLC served as exclusive financial advisor to the company. The transaction is expected to close by the first quarter of 2023, subject to customary closing conditions and the receipt of all required regulatory approvals.
