TOPEKA - The Kansas Lottery Commission on Tuesday approved 10 pending casino
2 in Ford County
3 in Sumner County
5 in Wyandotte County
1 in Cherokee County was approved May 5 with Kansas Penn Gaming, LLC
Sally Lunsford, communications director for the Kansas Lottery, said the approvals meant the commission "determined that these developers met minimum requirements as provided in Senate Bill 66, the Kansas Expanded Lottery Act. Those requirements include local endorsement, having sufficient access to financial resources to support the activities required of a lottery gaming facility manager, no less than three consecutive years of experience in Class III gaming, and being current in all taxes."
These contracts will now be sent to the Kansas Lottery Gaming Facility Review Board, which plans a series of hearings this summer. The board will select one operator in each of the state's four gaming zones to finance, build and manage a state-owned casino.
The process is still dependent on a ruling by the Kansas Supreme Court regarding the constitutionality of the state's casino law.
