Valley Forge Casino Resort Joins the Boyd Gaming Family

On September 17, Boyd Gaming added its first property in the state of Pennsylvania, successfully completing its acquisition of Valley Forge Casino Resort in King of Prussia.

Located 20 miles west of downtown Philadelphia, Valley Forge gives Boyd Gaming a presence in a densely populated, high-traffic area that Boyd Gaming President and CEO Keith Smith sees as a key expansion of the Company’s nationwide portfolio.

“We see attractive growth potential at Valley Forge and are pleased to welcome the entire Valley Forge team to Boyd Gaming,” said Smith.

The property is just two miles north of the King of Prussia Mall, the largest mall in the United States. It features a 40,000-square foot casino with 600 slot machines, 50 table games, eight restaurants and bars, 479 hotel rooms and more than 100,000 square feet of meeting, convention and exhibit space.

“We are excited because we are a perfect fit with Boyd Gaming,” said David Zerfing, Valley Forge Vice President and General Manager. “Our focus on team members and customers are very much aligned."

“We offer everything a large casino offers but in a more intimate setting,” said Gina Mancino, Vice President of Marketing at Valley Forge. “On the weekends, we have a DJ on our gaming floor and customers enjoy the music and dancing. That adds to our vibe. Our customers are local and loyal.”

Valley Forge is the only gaming property in the area with a hotel and convention facilities. It also has a fitness center and spa. And for those who crave a snack, there’s no better place to find regional favorites, such as cheesesteaks, pork rolls and soft pretzels.  

Mancino says the property’s 1,000 team members are active in the community, participating in the United Way, annual American Red Cross blood drive and the Delaware Chapter annual walk to end Alzheimer’s.

“Now being owned by a company with extensive gaming experience, everyone is excited about the opportunities on the horizon,” said Mancino.
