From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (wikipedia.org)

The Kansas Crossing Casino + Hotel is an $80-million casino and hotel in Pittsburg, Kansas, owned by Equity Ventures, JNB Gaming, and Laham Development. The property is operated by JNB Gaming. It is located at the intersection of U.S. Highway 69 and U.S. Highway 400.

History

In 2007, the state of Kansas enacted the Kansas Expanded Lottery Act, which included authorization for four casinos to be built and managed by private developers, under contract with the Kansas Lottery. On June 23, 2015, the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission voted to award the Kansas Crossing Casino + Hotel a license to build just south of Pittsburg, Kansas. The Kansas Crossing Casino beat out two other proposals including the Castle Rock Casino plan from Wichita businessmen Rodney and Brandon Steven as well as Camptown Casino proposed by billionaire Phil Ruffin of Las Vegas. This was the fourth such license awarded in the state of Kansas.

Kansas Crossing Casino opened its doors on March 31, 2017.

Kansas Crossing Casino celebrated its Grand Opening on April 8, 2017 complete with a performance from Kansas born, Nashville recording artist Jerrod Niemann. The Kansas Crossing Casino + Hotel opened with over 625 slot machines, 16 table games, a 124-room Hampton Inn & Suites, Two Brothers Mining Company restaurant, and an indoor/outdoor entertainment venue called The Corral.

Community Support

The Kansas Crossing Casino + Hotel has committed to three community partnerships valued at more than $4.5 million over 10 years. The commitments are to support the workforce development, education, economic development, and tourism in Southeast Kansas. The partnerships have been awarded to the Southeast Kansas Career and Technical Education Center (CTEC), Pittsburg State University, and the Crawford County Convention & Visitors Bureau.
