Kansas Star Casino opens part of new casino Wednesday
newest competition and modern casino floor is direct attack at Isle's operations:
A year after opening its temporary casino, the Kansas Star Casino is lifting the veil on its permanent facility at 8 a.m. Wednesday.
A portion of it, that is.
The 85,000-square-foot facility won’t be fully open until Dec. 21 as crews continue to install slot machines, table games and add other amenities over the next week and a half.
On Wednesday, however, the casino will have available more than half its 1,800 slot machines available, about three-quarters of its 45 table games, its full poker room with its 10 tables, and three of five restaurants.
The new casino is 80 percent larger than the temporary facility, which will become an events center seating up to 5,000 people.
The final phase of work at the casino property will include building 624 equestrian stables, 186 temporary stalls, two outdoor practice arenas and a 100-space RV park. The equestrian facilities are expected to open in 2015.
All told, the Kansas Star’s price tag will come to $310 million to $320 million.
