Kansas suffered another setback in its plan to own four regional casinos when no applications for Cherokee County were submitted before the deadline expired last week.

Only the Boot Hill Casino in Dodge City has opened for business. Two other casinos are approved and in development for Ford and Wyandotte counties. The fourth casino for Cherokee County has no takers.

Penn National Gaming was awarded the original contract to build the casino in Cherokee County, but they withdrew from the deal citing too much competition from a bordering Oklahoma Indian casino.

Since Penn National backed out, the state has been searching for another developer to build the Cherokee County casino. With the current economic downturn, no one has submitted a bid.

The deadline for Cherokee County applications has now been extended by the Lottery to April 16th.
