Kan. Board Considers Casino Applications

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The state board picking the companies to manage state-owned casinos in Kansas focused much of the questioning today on how applicants will pay for their plans.

The Lottery Gaming Facility Review Board conducted its final round of questioning of three remaining Wyandotte County applicants and two vying for the Ford County casino.

The panel plans to decide tomorrow who gets the two contracts.

Still in the running in Wyandotte County were Legends Sun, Golden Gaming Inc. and Kansas Entertainment, a partnership of Kansas Speedway and Cordish Co.

In Ford County, it's between Dodge City Resort and Gaming and Butler National Service Corp.
