WICHITA — The Kansas Lottery Commission has approved a new contract with Chisholm Creek Casino Resort to build a casino in Sumner County.
The contract includes amendments adding a hotel to the project, and a schedule of investments that depend on whether a tribal casino is built in Park City by the Wyandotte Tribe of Oklahoma. The casino must be built within 18 months of final approval from the state and contain a minimum of 72,000 square feet, 1,300 slot machines, 40 table games and a 200-seat restaurant.
Plans for a tribal casino have been pending for years. The tribe's application to have its land in Park City placed in trust for gambling purposes is pending in the U.S. Department of the Interior.
The schedule for Chisholm Creek establishes the number of slot machines, table games and other amenities that would be added to the Sumner County project if the tribal casino begins operations within the next five, seven or 10 years.
The amended contract with Chisholm Creek, which plans to build its casino at the Mulvane exit of the Kansas Turnpike, will be returned to the state's casino review board for a vote. The lottery it isn't certain when a vote would take place.
The amendments are posted here.
