Kansas Crossing Casino has been chosen for a casino in Southeast Kansas over two other bids by the Kansas Lottery Gaming Facilities Review Board.

The Kansas Crossing proposal was the least expensive of the three proposals and is estimated to cost $70 million. The other two bids were the Camptown Casino, which would have been smaller, and the Castle Rock Casino Resort, which would be more ambitious.

Out of the seven board members, five of them voted for the $70 million casino project, saying that its size is right for the area. Also the choice was further swayed as it was backed by the people who had proposed and won bids for the Hollywood Casino at Kansas Speedway in Dodge City and Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane.

It has been said that the developers will be breaking ground for Kansas Crossing in July and the build will be about a year long. The project will feature a casino and a 120 room hotel. The group has also said that some of the profit would be contributed to the Pittsburg State and University and other local institutions.
