Kansas Star Casino nets $21.6 million in first weeks

February 21, 2012


— The Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane brought in $21.6 million in gambling revenue through January.

The Kansas Lottery said Monday that the total includes several "soft openings" and a demonstration for state regulators before the casino officially opened in late December.

The casino near Mulvane expects to open a five-table poker room soon, and will expand to 2,000 slot machines, 45 tables and a 12-table poker room when its permanent casino opens in January 2013.

The Lottery says the Hollywood Casino at the Kansas Speedway in Wyandotte County, which opened Feb. 3, brought in just over $6.8 million in its first week of operation.

A lot of sad and desperate people, I guess.

Having been to a casino a few times, it looks remarkably different from the tv ads for them, in which people are smiling, laughing and having a great time.

I can only speak from a very limited experience - I only went a few times, and didn't enjoy it much, so I didn't go back.

But, from that experience, the vast majority of the people there didn't look like they were having any fun at all - they looked driven and unhappy.
