In its first full fiscal year of operation, the Kansas Star Casino sent $42.4 million to the state after bringing in more than $192million in net revenue for the year, Kansas Lottery officials said Wednesday.
The three state-owned casinos are required to send 22 percent of the money spent by the gamblers to the state. The Mulvane casino sent the state the largest amount of the three for fiscal year 2013, which ended June 30.
Hollywood Casino, which is at the Kansas Speedway in Wyandotte County, sent $27.5 million. The state collected $9.5 million from Boot Hill Casino in Dodge City.
Hollywood also just completed its first full fiscal year. Boot Hill wrapped its fourth year.
