first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Kansas Star Casino got a little bigger this morning when it opened part of its permanent casino today.At 8 a.m., after a temporary closing to move machines, tables and the works, casino management opened its doors to its new digs to gamers.Wednesday’s opening is only a temporary opening. Due to the enormous task of moving more than 1,400 slot machines, a temporary wall will be in place until Dec. 21 when the full gaming floor and all the restaurants will be open.So what is currently available for the gaming enthusiasts? •1,000 slot machines;•35 table games;•10 poker tables;•three restaurants.When the casino is fully open on Dec. 21 it will have:•1,829 slot machines;•45 table games;•10 poker tables;•five restaurants.The Kansas Star currently has nearly 60 percent of the total slot machines ready for use. Guests can also start taking advantage of the three new restaurants including: The Kitchen Buffett, a 250-seat live-action buffet where residents can see the chef’s cooking right in front of them; An Pho, an Asian noodle bar that serves a variety of Asian inspired dishes and Shark Bar, where bar seating will accommodate anyone looking for a burger or pizza.Megan Strader, Public Relations Manager of Kansas Star, said the area where gamers have been gambling will be turned into a multi-purpose entertainment center to be opened sometime in mid-summer. The multi-purpose event center will be used for equestrian events, trade shows, and concerts with 3,400 seats surrounding the arena. Floor seating can bring the seating capacity up to 5,000. “This is incredibly exciting,” said Scott Cooper, Kansas Star Casino General Manager. “We’re giving our guests the first look at our new casino.”Cooper said the opening of the permanent casino will take Kansas Star one step closer to achieving its purpose of being a regional destination for south-central Kansas. The new restaurant and the Hampton Inn Hotel which opened last month will bring guests from further away and keep them in the area longer, he said.“We’re proud of what we’ve developed,” Cooper said. “We wanted to create a place where our guests would feel comfortable and we like to think we’ve accomplished that.”The Kansas Star Casino will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
