The Kansas Lottery says that because nobody applied by 5 p.m. Tuesday, it set a third deadline of July 20 to apply for running a casino in either Crawford or Cherokee county.
The Lottery also reopened applications for Wyandotte and Sumner counties after the companies awarded contracts last year withdrew because of the economy. It received three applicants for each county.
A review commission will pick one applicant in each county.
The only state-owned casino under construction is in Dodge City.
