Harrah's ends bid for Kansas casino

10 September 2010

MULVANE, Kansas -- Harrah's Entertainment has pulled the plug on its latest effort to operate a casino in Kansas.

The Las Vegas-based company told state authorities Wednesday it was dropping efforts to build a casino in Sumner County in the city of Mulvane, which is south of Wichita.

"After careful consideration and discussion with the Kansas Lottery Commission, Harrah's has decided to withdraw its application for the south central zone gaming license in Kansas," company officials said in an emailed statement.

Harrah's explored casino opportunities in Kansas in 2008, but withdrew from the process that year citing economic reasons.
