Butler National Corporation, a supplier of professional gaming management services, has announced a contractual agreement with the Kansas Lottery on a contract to operate the Boot Hill Casino’s lottery gaming facility.
The new contract is said to support the State of Kansas, Southwest Kansas, and Butler International, conducted through its Butler National Service subsidiary. The extended deal is scheduled to run until 14 December 2039, building on the original contract set to be concluded on 14 December 2024.
On May 28, 2008, Butler National Service Company and the Kansas Lottery entered into the original Lottery Gaming Facility Management Contract for the Dodge City, Kansas Boot Hill Casino and Resort. In the spring of 2009, BHCMC inherited Butler National Service Corporation’s responsibilities.
Clark Stewart, president and CEO of Butler National commented on the extension: “We have worked diligently in our ten years of successful management of the state owned and operated games, creation of over 300 new jobs and development of a tourist destination location in Southwest Kansas.
“We appreciate the successful partnership between the State and Butler National/BHCMC. We have similar goals and objectives that mutually benefit the interests of both parties. As we reach the tenth anniversary of the opening of the Boot Hill Casino on December 15, 2019, we thank our fellow Kansans, and in particularly our employees, working with Butler National, a Kansas company.
“We will continue to offer a quality tourist and entertainment destination, positive and fun place of employment for hundreds of people and a strong driver of economic activity in Dodge City and southwest Kansas.”
