MULVANE, Kan. (AP) The first slot machines have started arriving at the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane as the state-owned facility gets closer to its anticipated January opening.
The Wichita Eagle reports the casino will receive 1,310 of the machines, which will arrive in truckloads of 50 to 70 this week.
The slot machines were under heavy surveillance Wednesday as they arrived at the casino, which is still under construction. General manager Scott Cooper says cameras will monitor installation and remain focused on the machines around the clock to make sure nobody tampers with them.
A spokesman for Peninsula Gaming, which will operate the casino, says some of the machines are new models that haven’t been played anywhere else.
