The estimate assumes the Quapaw casino will operate south of Cherokee County and the Pawnee tribe will have a casino south of Arkansas City. Without the two casinos, the study said annual revenues could reach $811 million.
With the two Oklahoma casinos, Kansas’ share of gambling proceeds could amount to $180 million a year, and $196 million without them. Both casinos are being built.
Supporters of expanded gambling estimated last year the state would realize $200 million in additional annual revenue.
