That prediction is looking more likely than ever to come true after Bwin. party announced a partnership with MGM and Boyd Gaming that will create a new US online poker [[sitetree_link,id=596]]conglomerate once poker is regulated in America.

Although the official announcement has not been made, it appears that the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino has been sold to Boyd Gaming.  Harrah's has been looking to sell the property for months and it appears that they have finally unloaded the off-strip casino. For those of you that don't know, the Rio is the current home of the World Series of  Poker.  The WSOP moved there in 2004 after Binion's Horseshoe was purchased by Harrah's Entertainment.
