Plans are being made to convert a southeast Kansas racetrack into a new casino.
The project would be a joint partnership between a Las Vegas casino company and
an Oklahoma tribe.
Frontenac's Camptown Greyhound Park is owned by Vegas' Treasure Island Hotel and
Casino, Phil Ruffin. The Quapaw Tribe will also be a part of the project.
The proposed casino must be approved by the Kansas Lottery Commission. If
approved, the casino will be state owned. It will also be managed privately.
In July, requirements for investments were lowered for potential casino
developers by legislation. The amount was originally $225 million. The number
was then lowered to $50 million. State fees were also lowered to $5.5 million
from $25 million.
The racetrack was originally opened in 1995. The owners filed for bankruptcy
just six months after opening.
500 Nations is an independent directory and information service free of any gaming operator's control and not affiliated with any casino.
