Boyd Gaming Breaks Ground on New Treasure Chest Casino
November 22, 2022
Last month, Boyd Gaming marked the start of construction on
its all-new Treasure Chest Casino
in Kenner, Louisiana.
Turning a vision into a reality, Boyd Gaming is investing
more than $100 million to reinvent and reimagine the property to replace the
existing riverboat casino, which has been in operation since 1994. The
single-level, land-based facility will feature a spacious 47,000-square-foot
casino, new restaurants and bars, nearly 10,000 square feet of meeting and
convention space, a FanDuel-branded sports book, and ample parking adjacent to
the casino entrance.
“With this project, we will be taking this property to another level… and with it, our investment in this great community,” said the President and CEO of Boyd Gaming, Keith Smith. “We believe Treasure Chest is going to be an entertainment experience this entire community is going to enjoy and a destination the community can take pride in.”
