The Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission (KRGC) said it’s been a smooth transition introducing the new gambling service to the state.

At Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane, people are enjoying the new addition.

“Now, for us as a full resort destination, we get a whole new group of folks coming in to watch games, and it’s allowed us to introduce them to what we have here at the Kansas Star,” said Kansas Star Casino Vice President and General Manager, Doug Lang.
