TOPEKA - The Lottery Gaming Facility Review Board selected Penn National Gaming to build and manage a state-owned casino in Cherokee County. The board also rejected Penn's plan for a Sumner County Casino and selected Harrah's instead.

Penn was the only bidder for the southeast Kansas contract and received a 5-2 vote of approval by the board. Penn officials had previously said they would have to reconsider their Cherokee County bid if they did not win the Sumner County contract.

"We need to digest it and see where we need to go. It's obviously disappointing," Penn National spokesman Eric Schippers said, adding that the company's board of directors will have to decide how to proceed.

The next step will be for Penn National Gaming to pass a background check by the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission.
