Kansas Crossing Casino to begin soft opening last week of March

While keeping with their latest Grand Opening date of April 8, 2017, Kansas Crossing Casino has now announced that special guests will receive ‘sneak peeks’ throughout the last week of March and all of the public will be invited beginning March 31.

Casinos often open with a soft-launch for promotional purposes as well as to make sure all systems are “go” after extensive beta testing. However, the liquidity of the dates has some customers confused, according to reports on social media. Representatives have confirmed the soft and grand opening dates.

The facility near Pittsburg in the southeast corner of the state near the Missouri and Oklahoma borders faced an uphill climb at various times, mostly due to lawsuits from proponents of a competing proposal for the state’s final lottery-owned casino license.

The $80 million casino complex is located near the junction of U.S. Highways 69 and 400 in Crawford County and will feature over 625 slot machines, 16 gaming tables, and a 123-room Hampton Inn and Suites and entertainment complex. The casino is expected to entertain about 500,000 visitors annually, far less than the rejected Castle Rock project would have, but still a massive influx of arrivals for a town with a stable population of just over 20,000 people.

As of Saturday 3-18-2017, the company website still displayed a status of “check back soon for reservations” and travel partner websites were not yet accepting reservations for the week following the grand opening. No comment on when the hotel would open was available from the listed phone number.
