With the tagline, "More Bonuses, More Often," an enhanced Penny Lane premiered early last month at Boyd Gaming's four Las Vegas locals properties—The Orleans Hotel and Casino, Gold Coast Hotel and Casino, Suncoast Hotel and Casino and Sam's Town Hotel and Gambling Hall. And, for the first time, Penny Lane is now available five additional properties—the California Hotel and Casino, Fremont Hotel and Casino and Main Street Station Casino Brewery and Hotel in downtown Las Vegas; Delta Downs Racetrack Casino Hotel in Vinton, La.; and Treasure Chest Casino in Kenner, La.

“Since we first launched Penny Lane last year, our four locals properties have become the place to play for anyone looking for the hottest new penny slot titles,” said Paul Chakmak, executive vice president and COO of Boyd Gaming in a prepared statement. “Now, we're adding a new twist to our Penny Lane line‐up—an array of additional mini‐bonus games, built right into players' favorite slots.”

The new bonus games will be in addition to the bonus rounds offered on many of the newest and most popular slot titles located within Penny Lane, giving players the chance to win slot play, B Connected credits, and other prizes.

To raise awareness of the new Penny Lane, Boyd Gaming is launching a nationwide marketing and advertising campaign featuring “Cool Abe,” a modern take on the face on the penny. Aimed at promoting Penny Lane in a humorous and novel way, the Cool Abe campaign will feature television, print and online elements.

Pending regulatory approval, Penny Lane will be introduced in the coming weeks at five additional Boyd Gaming properties: Blue Chip Hotel Casino Spa in Michigan City, Ind.; IP Casino Resort Spa in Biloxi, Miss.; Par‐A‐Dice Hotel Casino in East Peoria, Ill.; Sam's Town Hotel Casino in Shreveport, La.; and Sam's Town Hotel and Gambling Hall in Tunica, Miss.
