The state topped its highest sports betting handle for the third consecutive month.

The Kansas Gaming and Racing Commission has published its casino gaming results for the month of November. The state’s four casinos raked in nearly $31.6m in total gaming revenue, reflecting a decrease of 0.58% year-over-year.

Hollywood Casino & Resort once again grabbed the top revenue spot for the month and finished November with more than $12.4in revenue. Close to $11m came from electronic gaming machines, while $1.4m came from table games.

Kansas Star Casino & Resort followed close behind as the second-place earner, with more than $12m in total casino revenue for the month. Table games brought in nearly $1.6m, with slots and electronic game machines contributing the other $10.4m.

Boot Hill Casino & Resort and Kansas Crossing Casino & Resort posted September revenue totals of $3.8m and $3.1m respectively.

During the month of November, the state hit an all-time high for its sports betting handle. Players in Kansas wagered more than $260.9m throughout various sports betting venues in November.

This is the third month in a row that the state has surpassed its previous sports wagering monthly high, including September and October

Sports betting has been legal in Kansas’ four casinos since 2022. However, historic horseracing (HHR) facilities are currently prohibited from having sportsbooks on site but can partner with mobile app providers to offer players online sports betting.

The Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission recently approved licensing for a Park City historic III gaming venue. Kansas passed a bill in 2022 to pave the way for both historic horseracing and sports betting. Senate Bill 84 outlines specific requirements, including allowing one facility in Sedgwick County.

Michael Hershman - Dispelling casino 'myths:' New York needs to lose fear of the unknown

Michael Hershman, CEO of the Soloviev Group, joins Tim Poole on the Huddle to put forward his case that the Freedom Plaza is the way to go for one of New York's casino licences. He fields a variety of questions - not shying away from any of them - on why 'myths' about casinos and a fear of the unknown should be dispelled, as well as acknowledging the strength of rival bids and discussing opposition to the project.

Five years ago, before the mass proliferation of social media we see today – and even before the Covid-19 pandemic – I think you would be hard pressed to find a CEO talking about “Instagrammable moments.” KPIs w...
