TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A Kansas lawmaker says sports betting could bring up to $1 billion to the state.

Rep. Francis Awerkamp gave the Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee an update on proposals to allow sports betting. He said Kansas casinos and the lottery are discussing four options.

One allows wagering at casinos and through casino's mobile apps and websites.

A second would run the mobile app through the Kansas Lottery.

A third option involves an app and locations managed through the lottery, including bars, restaurants, casinos and race tracks.

A fourth option would have apps for both the lottery and casinos.

Awerkamp says they are looking at other states with similar setups.
