TWO WYANDOTTE COUNTY CASINO PROPOSALS ACCEPTED TWO SUMNER COUNTY PROPOSALS
TOPEKA - The Kansas Lottery Commission have unanimously endorsed two plans for
building a state-owned casino in Wyandotte County and forwarded them to the
state review board, which will select one of the two before the end of October.
The approved plans were submitted by Penn National Gaming Inc. and a Kansas
Speedway partnership. The Penn proposal is a $539 Hollywood Casino to be built 2
miles north of the junction of Interstates 70 and 435 near the speedway. The
Kansas Speedway proposal is a $521 million Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
overlooking the track's No. 2 turn..
The commission postponed action for a week on the two proposals for Sumner
County because two of the contractors combined forces to back one of their
plans. Mandalay Resort Group of Las Vegas dropped their plan and has partnered
with Foxwoods Development Company of St. Louis to support the Foxwoods plan. The
Foxwoods plan is competing with a proposal from Lakes Entertainment Inc. of
500 Nations is an independent directory and information service free of any gaming operator's control and not affiliated with any casino.
