TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas has picked Harrah's Entertainment Inc. to manage a state-owned casino in Sumner County.

The Lottery Gaming Facility Review Board made the selection Friday on a 4-3 vote. Others in the running for the 15-year contract were Marvel Gaming and Penn National Gaming.

The board previously picked Penn to managed the Cherokee County facility. Both now must clear a background check by the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission, which could take a couple of months.

A law enacted last year created four state-owned casinos. The other two are in Wyandotte and Ford counties. The board will decide next month who gets those contracts.
