TOPEKA - The proposed Chisholm Creek Casino Resort was approved by the Kansas
Lottery Commission this week and forwarded to the Kansas Racing and Gaming
Commission for final review and approval. That decision is expected within 60
The Sumner County plan calls for Foxwoods Development and Lakes Entertainment to
build and manage the new casino resort. Its location will be southwest of the
Mulvane Turnpike interchange between the Turnpike and U.S. 81 about a half-mile
south of K-53.
Gary Armentrout, Foxwoods president, told lottery commissioners that the project
would be funded entirely with cash and could be built and operating in 20 months
after final approval. That could be as early as the summer of 2011.
"We have the site, we have the project, we have the funding and we have the
management to develop and operate a first-class gaming facility in south-central
Kansas," Armentrout said. He also said the first phase would develop a casino
with up to 1,500 slot machines and 30 table games; a deli, buffet and steak
house; and a police, fire and ambulance facility. They are seeking a third party
to build a hotel on the site with at least 150 rooms.
They hope to open the hotel about the same time as the casino.
