TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - More than 10 percent of the applicants for jobs at a new casino in Dodge City have been rejected by state regulators.
Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission Executive Director Steve Martino said it denied temporary licenses for 35 of 337 people who sought jobs at the Boot Hill Casino and Resort.
Martino briefed the Kansas Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee on Tuesday.
Boot Hill opened in December, the first casino under a 2007 law authorizing a single casino in each of four areas.
The casino's operators expect to generate $44 million in net revenues during its first year of operations. The state's take would be 22 percent, or nearly $10 million.
