Kansas Star Casino Revenue Exceeds Expectations

Lottery officials say revenue from the Kansas Star Casino's first 10 months in operation has exceeded the revenue earned by the two other casinos in Kansas in about the same period.

The Kansas Lottery Commission says the Kansas Star casino, which opened in Mulvane on Dec. 20, 2011, had earned about $158 million through the end of October. That is more than the revenue earned in nearly the same period by the two other state-owned casinos.

Boot Hill Casino in Dodge City earned $119 million. Hollywood Casino in Kansas City, which opened Feb. 3, has earned $93 million.

The Kansas Star employs about 1,000 people.
