Through its wholly-owned subsidiary that manages Boot Hill Casino & Resort in Dodge City, Butler National Corporation has received Sports Wagering Management Contract approval from the Kansas Lottery.
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.”
The contract allows for the management of sports wagering in-house at the Boot Hill Casino, and through three Kansas Lottery approved Interactive Sports Wagering Platforms. The contract term is for five years, and provides the statutory revenue share of 10% to the state.
“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.”
