Bally’s Corp. announced Monday morning the change of Dover Downs Hotel & Casino’s name into Bally’s Dover Casino Resort, in Delaware, in order to align Dover Downs with Bally’s growing brand.
In December, Dover Downs will be updated with new signage, dice, cards, gaming chips and table game layouts. The property is currently using Bally Rewards. All existing rewards will be transferred to the new system, according to a press release.
The company purchased Dover Downs in 2018 when it operated under its previous name, Twin River.
