This time, the Wilton Rancheria Tribe won’t need Boyd’s financial assistance.

Boyd Gaming CEO Keith Smith said last week the $500 million Sky River Casino near Sacramento has been operating at capacity since day one. The casino’s success allowed the tribe to pay off Boyd’s construction loan for the project last month.

“The tribe will be able to obtain a more normal way of financing the expansion,” Smith said.
