“When sports betting was legalised in Kansas last year we received so many positive comments and questions from our guests. Mostly asking when we start offering it, and we continue to get those questions. Now, we finally will be able to answer those questions with certainty.”
“We are excited to launch our retail sportsbook as another amenity for our guests to “play your way.” This will be the first true locals’ sportsbook in Kansas.”
