Butler National Corporation to offer sports betting at Kansas casino

19 August 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Butler National Corporation, through its wholly-owned subsidiary that manages Boot Hill Casino and Resort in Dodge City, Kansas, has received Sports Wagering Management Contract approval from the Kansas Lottery.

Earlier this summer, Butler National announced sports wagering platform agreements with DraftKings and Bally's Corporation.

The Sports Wagering Management Contract provides for the management of sports wagering, both in-house at the Boot Hill Casino, as well as through three Kansas Lottery approved Interactive Sports Wagering Platforms. The contract term is for five years and provides the statutory revenue share of ten percent 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 Clark Stewart, CEO, Butler National Corporation. "The approval of the Sports Wagering Management Contract brings us one step closer to that significant achievement."

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.

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.

"Our team is focused on the timely launch of the DraftKings mobile platform and the DraftKings retail sports book at Boot Hill Casino in Dodge City," said Stewart. "We are thrilled to bring the excitement of sports wagering to our casino guests and to all Kansans."

Butler National is a recognized provider of professional management services in the gaming industry and a leader in special mission aircraft modifications.

Once the Kansas Lottery launches sports wagering, anyone legally permitted within the geographical boundaries of Kansas can place bets directly from their mobile devices or computers by accessing a participating sports book or eventually by visiting a lottery gaming facility.
