WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Gambling revenues at the Kansas Star Casino south of Wichita are lagging behind figures recorded a year ago soon after the permanent casino started operating.
The casino's June report to the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission showed that it has won $167 million from gamblers so far this year, compared to $176.3 million a year ago at this time.
General Manager Scott Cooper says a struggling economy has had an impact on revenues. He says a hotel expansion and other amenities to be added soon should boost those numbers.
Wichita Eagle reports the reduced revenues means Kansas has taken in about $2.1 million less in taxes on the operation than it had by this time last year.
