The Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission has earned over $6 million in the month of December after earning an impressive $3.25 million in gaming revenue the first eight days of opening the Kansas Star Casino, which has now been open only three weeks.
In a report by KSN, state Senator, Jean Schodorf, said:”It has been so successful and so many people are going out there so I hope it continues to have a good crowd.”
With her motto, more business; more money, Schodorf said the state’s share of the earnings alongside the other state-owned casino in Dodge City, will be used to pay off some debts early.
Senator Sam Brownback added:”We should use this increased revenue for its most important statutory purpose. And that is to pay down our debt.”
The money will also be used to reduce local property taxes and improve state infrastructure, Schodorf said, although she did add that they are taking a “wait-and-see” approach to the success of the casino. Nevertheless, so far, so good!
Over in Maryland, the Maryland Live! Casino has announced it is opening an employment centre to find over 1,500 positions at its new Anne Arundel County slots parlour.
In a report by the Washington Post, Maryland Live! said hundreds of portions need to be filled, some in the casino floor, as well as some in marketing, facilities, food and beverage, environmental services, security, information technology and finance.
The centre will be open everyday in Hanover from today at 10am until Friday when it closes at 7pm as it seeks new full-time and part-time talent for the parlour expected to open this summer.
