Butler National Corporation, through its subsidiary in Dodge City that runs Boot Hill Casino & Resort, has been approved by the Kansas Lottery for a Sports Wagering Management Contract.
It comes after Butler National announced sports wagering platform agreements with both DraftKings and Bally’s Corporation earlier this summer.
“In anticipation of the launch of sports wagering by the Kansas Lottery, DraftKings expects a timely debut of its Kansas platform on the day the regulators approve the initial launch,” a statement from Butler National read.
“Boot Hill Casino & Resort, located in Dodge City, Kansas, also anticipates unveiling its on-site interim sportsbook and plans to accept wagers shortly after launch of the Interactive Sports Wagering Platform.”
It allows the Boot Hill Casino to manage sports betting in-house, as well as through three Kansas Lottery licensed Interactive Sports Wagering Systems. It is valid for five years and includes a 10% statutory revenue share.
“We’ve been working diligently with our current online wagering platform partners to bring online sports betting to Kansans just as soon as regulators give us the green light,” said Butler National Corporation CEO Clark Stewart.
“The approval of the Sports Wagering Management Contract brings us one step closer to that significant achievement.
“Our team is focused on the timely launch of the DraftKings mobile platform and the DraftKings retail sportsbook at Boot Hill Casino in Dodge City. We are thrilled to bring the excitement of sports wagering to our casino guests and to all Kansans.”
