SUMNER COUNTY The Kansas Lottery Commission approved a new contract today with developers of the Chisholm Creek Casino. The contract now moves to the Facility Gaming Review Board who will make the final decision on whether to approve it.



The two key issues addressed by the Lottery Commission were the inclusion of a hotel in the project and the potential competition if the Wyandotte Tribe builds a casino at Park City.

The hotel issue was settled by an agreement with Double Down Development to work with Chisholm Creek Casino in building a 100-room hotel.

A potential Indian casino was resolved by amendments to the contract. Whether or not an Indian casino is built, Chisholm Creek will open a 72,000 square foot casino within 18 months. It will host 1,300 slot machines, 40 table games, a 200-seat restaurant and a 100-room hotel.

If an Indian casino is built within 5 years, Chisholm Creek will have up to 144 months to complete a second phase expansion. The expansion would increase the number of slot machines to 1,700, the total table games to 50, add three restaurants, add 500 more hotel rooms, and add 10,000-square-feet of convention space.

There are other stipulations in the contract if the Indian casino is built after 5 years but before 10 years. If the casino is not built, Chisholm Creek Casino is required to complete its original proposal with an initial investment of $225 million.

In a statement released shortly after the agreement, Kansas Lottery Executive Director Ed Van Petten said "Obviously we are pleased to reach an agreement on the amendment to the contract. "We feel that this improves the chances of success for Chisholm Creek Casino and the State of Kansas."
