Dodge City casino representatives not worried about competition of new Kansas Star Casino

December 18, 2011


— Officials with the first state-owned casino in Kansas say they’re not worried about competition from state’s second, which is scheduled to open the day after Christmas south of Wichita.

Representatives of Boot Hill Casino and Resort in Dodge City say the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane will pull gamblers from Oklahoma and drive tourism into Kansas, rather than hurt the Western-themed Boot Hill facility.

Officials with the Kansas Lottery, which owns and operates the casinos, say they are pleased with how the 2-year-old southwest Kansas casino has performed so far.

Lottery gaming facilities director Keith Kocher told The Hutchinson News there’s no way to tell how the Mulvane casino will affect traffic at Boot Hill, but he says it could be an interesting year.
