Golden Gaming Pass Casino Plan in Wyandotte County

On October 7th, 2007, a gambling organization from Las Vegas has proposed a destination casino facility worth $600 million in Bonner Springs and Edwardsville.

Golden Gaming Incorporated recently filed their plan and zoning application. The casino project would be on 200 acres south of the Interstate 70 at 110th Street. Golden Gaming Chairman Blake Sartini said that after reviewing potential markets for their initial project, they believe that the state of Kansas presents the most optimum opportunity because they have a good site and plan.

The casino plan of the company would include a hotel facility, spa, restaurants, retail shops, convention and meeting facility, an eighteen hole top class golf course and entertainment facility made by Friedmutter Group Incorporated from Las Vegas. Golden Gaming operates five casinos in Colorado and Nevada.

The also manages 44 pubs in Nevada and has 2,200 employees. The proposals are due on October 16th, 2007 on Bonner Springs. About five developers passed proposals to the Unified Government of Wyandotte County on September 24th, 2007. City governments can pass one or more casino proposals to the Kansas Lottery Commission where a single proposal will be picked for the county.

The cities in Wyandotte County agreed on June 2007 to divide revenues between themselves from the planned casino and set rules for the project, like a minimum investment of $300 million. The push for these projects was the legislature's endorsement of expanded gaming but the legality of the project is still questionable.

Attorney General Paul Morrison filed a lawsuit before the Supreme Court to decide on the casino issue but the Supreme Court said that the issue must be first decided in Shawnee County District Court. The statute permits groups to construct and operate state owned casino in four locations if the voters approve it.
