Woodlands to get 800 slot machines - Thursday 26th of July 2007

The Woodlands will get 800 slot machines, the Kansas Lottery Commission decided Wednesday.

That’s the same as a race track in Wichita. A track in southeast Kansas will get 600 slots.

The allocation was part of the rules and regulations adopted unanimously Wednesday by the commission, which said an additional 600 slots can be distributed by the lottery’s executive director, once the management contracts take effect.

Slots at the tracks were put in place by a gambling law enacted this year that also calls for four resort-style casinos in the state.
