According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, Harrahâ€™s plans to change Barbary Coast’s name to Billâ€™s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon after taking ownership from Boyd Gaming. The new name is apparently a tribute to Harrah’s founder Bill Harrah.
Boyd Gaming is trading Barbary Coast to Harrah’s for the land where Westward Ho formerly stood. The Nevada Gaming Control Board has recommended approval by the Nevada Gaming Commission of the transaction.
Update: The Review Journal now has a few more details.
