Kansas Casino Starts Loading in Slot Machines For 2012 Opening

Residents in the state of Kansas have been waiting decades for a casino they can call their own. This week, that reality moved one step closer when the slot machines for the Mulvane gaming facility started being delivered from Las Vegas.

Bally Technologies, which distributes the slot machines for hundreds of casinos around the US, started to ship the slot machines in groups of fifty to seventy in trucks. The process by which the machines were delivered is something that one would believe only existed in the movies.

The slot machines are marked with a serial number, which is recorded by Bally before the machines are wrapped and loaded on to a truck. The truck is then sealed, to ensure that nothing funny can happen with the machines while en route to Mulvane. Once the machines arrive, casino officials, along with gaming regulators, check the machines in by recording the serial numbers.

From there, it is up to the casino to ensure that the machines are not tampered with or exchanged. Surveillance cameras are already in place at the Mulvane facility, and the cameras are directed at the areas where the machines will be stored until the casino opens early next year. The slots are being delivered to the exact location they will be in when the casino opens.

"This is a historic week for us here in Mulvane," said resident Mike Baxter. "We have waited a long time for a casino, and the delivery of the slot machines shows that this will soon be a reality. It is exciting and upsetting at the same time. On one hand it is cool that the machines are here, but on the other hand, it stinks that the casino will not be opened until next year."

The machines being delivered are of both new and old variety. Traditional machines that can be found in Las Vegas and other gaming destinations have arrived, as well as some new games that residents of Kansas may have never seen before. The mix of machines should make for an exciting grand opening for the Kansas Star Casino.

Kansas was one of the first states to authorize casino gambling during the current wave of expansion. Several years ago, voters approved four, state-owned casinos. In the ensuing years, however, the state had been unable to find developers to operate the casinos. The recession scared several developers away. Finally, Peninsula Gaming stepped up and took the reigns at the Mulvane location.
