MGM Mirage is currently expanding in several different areas in the United States, and their latest idea is to put a casino in the state that made The Wizard of Oz famous, Kansas.
Dorothy would not have known what to do had she walked into the proposed casino resort from MGM, but she would be staring at a resort that included 50 table games, 2,000 slot machines, and a 250 room hotel.
MGM will be entering in a joint venture with Foxwoods Development Co., and the group plans to submit their application on Tuesday to the Kansas Lottery Commission.
Also partnering on the project would be the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, and Chisholm Creek Ventures LLC. The new casino would bring between 1,425 and 1,475 new jobs to whatever area they decide on.
So far, the group has considered their options from Wellington to Mulvane, and it appears that Mulvane would be the area to generate the greatest revenue, and although that is not the only reason for choosing a site, it could be a reason that weighs heavily in the groups final decision.
Cash Systems, Inc. Receives Approval For Powercash in Casinos

The next level of the ease with which casinos can take money from customers could begin soon as Cash Systems, Inc. received approval for their Powercash operating system from Gaming Laboratories International.
The way that powercash works, is, first a person must sign up for both a casinos Cash System cashclub feature, and a players club card.
After having both of those in place, the player may then draw funds from their checking accounts, credit cards, or debit cards, by requesting funds be transferred into their players club accounts.
Once authorization is complete, the player then may select an amount and have money delivered from their players accounts, directly to the machines they are sitting at.
The Powercash system is a product that was a joint venture from Bally Technologies, Scotch Twist, and Cash Systems, and the system is sure to change the way money is transported on a casino floor.
Players no longer will have to go to ATM machines for more money, and also will not have to carry large amounts of money around with them in their trips to the casino, something that will help with the safety inside of casinos.
