A total of 4 venues could be built in the state under a 2007 expanded gambling law

Kansas approved Konami Gaming as first casino supplier

(US).- Las Vegas-based Konami Gaming Inc. has obtained a temporary certification to manufacture slot machines for Kansas casinos. The Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission says this is the first company to apply to become a gaming supplier under state regulations.


onami was issued its temporary certification last week. “We are pleased to receive the first of what we hope are many applications from slot machine manufacturers,” said KRGC Executive Director Stephen Martino, in a news release.

State rules require gaming suppliers to any of the state-owned casinos to meet certain conditions before they can operate here. Among them, suppliers must be licensed or certified to do business in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri and New Jersey. They also must complete disclosure forms and submit to background investigations. Konami still must receive its permanent certification.

Only suppliers of gaming equipment, such as slot machines, tables and money-counting machines, must submit to the certification process, says Don Cawby, director of administration for the KRGC. Other vendors, like for kitchen equipment or food service, have fewer requirements to meet.

A casino currently is under construction in Dodge City, and proposals have been submitted for facilities in Sumner and Wyandotte counties. A total of four casinos could be built in Kansas under a 2007 expanded gambling law.
