Sedgwick County Approves Slot Machines

On April 12, 2007, if the official's voters in Sedgwick County give their approval, people at Wichita Greyhound Park could be enjoying slot machines by the end of 2007. Lately, it has been the standard practice of states in the US to put slot machines at their racing tracks to help attract new customers.

Complete casino gaming will be featured at the Wichita Greyhound Park by 2009, like casino table games such as Poker, Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette and Craps. Sebelius already laid out the plans on Wednesday, April 11, 2007 during the ceremony at the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport to sign the proposal which will allow and handle the expanded gambling for the next quarter of the century.

Voters in Sedgwick County appear to lean towards the casino plans. A new poll commissioned by KWCH-12 Eyewitness News and by the Wichita Eagle clearly shows that about 7 out of 10 registered voters in the Sedgwick County are in favor of expanding the gambling games offered in their county.

They will get their chance to approve of the plans in the slots referendum that will be held on August 7, 2007. If approved by voters, it will be the start of the first genuine casino gambling activity in Wichita in about 130 years.
