New casino to open in Park City

After years of legal battles with the state of Kansas, the Wyandotte Nation of Oklahoma is getting ready to open a new casino next week near Park City.

The Crosswinds Casino is scheduled to open Tuesday, March 2nd.   The tribe has been operating a temporary casino since October at the site near 77th Street North and I-135.

The new casino will have 20,000 square feet with 500 slot machines, 200 video gaming machines, a bar, cafe, and a high-limit lounge.

The Wyandotte Nation purchased the property nearly 30 years ago.  The state of Kansas filed an unsuccessful lawsuit to try to block the facility.
