Mulvane The new Kansas Star Casino is proving to be a winning bet.
The Kansas Lottery says the casino near Mulvane cashed in $3.25 million in gaming revenue through its first eight days of operation.
The casino opened to the public Monday but the figure includes revenue from a controlled demonstration for regulators and five days of "soft openings" for players' club members.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Monday's public opening brought in nearly $900,000 in gaming revenue. Keith Kocher, gaming facilities director for the lottery, says that exceeded everyone's expectations.
