Dodge City Casino Plans Nearly Equal

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Lottery Gaming Facility Review Board is told that two applicants for a proposed state-owned casino for Dodge City would generate about the same amount of revenue.

The board's consultants Tuesday said their average annual revenue projection for the applicants, Boot Hill Casino and Dodge City Casino, each would be around $55 million. The consultants said the board needs to consider other factors such as what each is offering in the way of a casino, amenities and where they would be located.

The board is meeting Tuesday and Wednesday to hear proposals from the two Ford County applicants and the four applicants for Wyandotte County. It will decide Sept. 18 and 19 who gets the management contract for the casino in each county.
