HENDERSON — The historic Eldorado Casino on Water Street now has new owners. Boyd Gaming Corp. sold the 58-year-old casino to DeSimone Gaming for an undisclosed amount of money. Eldorado was one of three casinos owned by Boyd Gaming that remained closed after the state ordered all nonessential businesses to temporariy shutter to slow the spread of COVID-19 in March. The casino, which offers slots and some dining, originally opened on July 1, 1962, as the first co-owned by Bill and Sam Boyd. The casino says it was one of the first to market directly to Las Vegas locals, as well as among the first casinos to have female dealers. DeSimone Gaming also owns the Railroad Pass Casino in Henderson. [LVRJ]
