Sports wagering in the state of Kansas is in its full operational phase following a soft launch on Sept. 1.

Kansas Lottery, who is in charge of wagering operations, says players won’t notice a difference between the two phases. The soft launch period simply gave players and platforms time to familiarize themselves with sports wagering and registration before the start of the NFL season.

“Folks have been wagering effectively on all the platforms. Our casino partners and all the platforms have been doing a great job of getting people to understand how sports watering works here in the state, and it’s worked for them very well,” said Stephen Durrell, executive director of Kansas Lottery.
