(KANSAS CITY, Kan.)
(AP) The Hollywood Casino at Kansas Speedway will open next month if it receives final state approval. The casino said in a news release Monday that grand opening for the gaming complex will begin about 11 a.m. Feb. 3.
The Hollywood Casino will offer 2,000 slot machines and 52 table games, along with five restaurants.
The Kansas Legislature in 2007 approved the opening of four state-owned casinos. The Boot Hill Casino opened in Dodge City in 2009, while the Kansas Star opened near Mulvane last month. There have been no bids for a casino in the southeast zone in Crawford and Cherokee counties.
