KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A spokesman says developers of a state-owned casino in Kansas City, Kan., want more time to start building a promised hotel.

The Kansas City Star reports vice president of marketing Dean Doria said Tuesday that Hollywood Casino won't be able to break ground on the hotel in February. The casino is at Kansas Speedway.

The Kansas Lottery owns the rights to the gambling and receives some profits, but developers built the casino and manage it. They had promised to start building a 250-room hotel within two years of its February 2012 grand opening, or pay financial penalties.

Casino officials are scheduled to outline their new plans later this week to the commission of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kan.
