Proposals for SE Kansas casino a contrast in approaches

KSAL StaffFebruary 14, 2015

Developers hoping to operate a state-owned casino in southeast Kansas have offered four proposals that provide a sharp contrast in approaches.

The two most expensive proposals would place the casinos near the Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas borders. One is Castle Rock Casino Resort’s $145 million facility, the other is a yet-unnamed casino proposed by Southeast Kansas Casino Partners for $140 million.

The Wichita Eagle reports both would compete with the Downstream Casino Resort just across the Oklahoma state line.

The other two are more moderately priced and would place the casino near Pittsburg, catering more to regional gamblers. The Emerald City Casino Resort would be a $110 million project in Frontenac north of Pittsburg, while the $62 million Kansas Crossing Casino would operate south of the city.
