DODGE CITY, Kan. – Amid concerns after 2 developers withdrew their casino plans,
officials have confirmed the state-owned casino which is planned for Ford County
is continuing on track. Butler National Service Corp. president Clark Stewart
says his company still plans to go forward with the Boot Hill Casino and Resort,
and Kansas Lottery spokeswoman Sally Lunsford says "Nothing has changed."
The Kansas Expanded Gambling Law 2007 authorizes construction of one state-owned
casino in each of four regions. Two of the selected developers have withdrawn
their plans. Harrah's Entertainment has backed out of its plans for a casino in
the south-central region citing the poor economy, and Penn National withdrew its
plan for a casino in the southeast region citing competition from the nearby
Downstream Casino in Oklahoma.
