Officials in the state of Kansas have spent the past several years attempting to get four developers to open state-owned casinos. That process has been filled with all kinds of twists and turns, and on Wednesday another chapter was complete in the process.

The state Supreme Court refused to hear a lawsuit that was brought on by Sumner County Commission. The lawsuit contended that the annexation of a casino site in Mulvane was not valid. The suit against Mulvane stopped Peninsula Gaming from moving forward with their plans to build a casino along the Kansas Turnpike.

Now that the Supreme Court has refused the case, Peninsula Gaming believes they are the front runners for a casino in the Wichita area of the state. Under state law, only one casino can be built in the area, and the Kansas Lottery Commission will choose one of two proposals for the casino development next week.

Peninsula dodged a major hurdle with the Supreme Court decision Wednesday. If the land annexation had been ruled invalid, Peninsula would have had to get the endorsement of the county commission, and that would not have happened because Global Gaming Solutions won that endorsement.

Sumner County is just one of four areas of the state that were approved for a new casino several years ago. In the time since the approval, the Kansas Lottery Commission has had developers chosen to operate the casinos, but the developers have mostly pulled out of their deals. Each time a developer bailed, the Commission started the application process over.

Peninsula had prepared for the possibility of losing the lawsuit by deciding on a second location, but not that will not be needed. The Commission has said it will make its decision next week and the hope is that a casino is operational sometime in the next couple of years in Sumner County.
