Boyd Gaming Launches All-New B Connected Sports App

LAS VEGASJust in time for the start of the professional football season, Boyd Gaming today announced the launch of its all-new mobile betting experience for Nevada sports bettors: B Connected Sports.

The name is the same as Boyd Gaming’s previous mobile app, but the betting experience has received a significant upgrade, thanks to IGT’s PlaySports technology solution.  With B Connected Sports, Boyd Gaming can now offer Nevada bettors one of the widest selections of pre-game and in-gaming betting options in the state, with sports including football, basketball, baseball, hockey, tennis, golf, auto racing, darts and rugby, both from the United States and overseas.

“Mobile and in-play sports betting are more popular than ever, so the new and improved B Connected Sports app comes at the perfect time,” said Bob Scucci, Boyd Gaming’s Vice President of Race and Sports Operations. “With B Connected Sports, we’ve created a mobile experience that is both easy-to-use and unrivaled in its selection of betting options, making it one of the most robust sports betting products in the state of Nevada.”

The app features dozens of proposition betting options for each sporting event. In-game wagering is also available for major sporting events with an extensive wagering menu, giving sports fans more ways to get in on the most up-to-date, in-game action, while receiving instant scoring updates.

B Connected Sports has also enhanced its look with a clean, modern design that allows users to easily navigate the platform, while still enjoying more wagering options. The app’s user-friendly platform offers customers even more convenience with quick updates to sports betting odds as well as immediate information on payouts on each betting option.

In the near future, wagering on horse racing will be made available through the new B Connected Sports app, pending regulatory approval. B Connected Sports users can still place horse-racing bets via the previous B Connected Sports app.

The all-new B Connected Sports app is available for free download on iOS and Android devices. For more information, visit your favorite Boyd Gaming Sports Book or www.bconnectedsports.com.
