Boot Hill gives IGT full share of expansion
June 20, 2012
International Game Technology and Boot Hill Casino, the first state-owned and operated gaming facility, announced the installation of 198 additional IGT games at the property in Dodge City, Kan., giving the slot manufacturer 100 percent of the casino’s expansion order.
Among the titles chosen by Boot Hill Casino were 12 MegaJackpots games with themes such as classic Barcrest Top Dollar, Elvis and Wheel of Fortune. Also selected were IGT core games, including eight OnCore Progressives such as Huevocartoon, which has performed at nearly double the house average in various markets in the US and Latin America.
"We are excited to have IGT as our leading game provider in our casino," said Sharon Stroburg, General Manager of Boot Hill Casino & Resort. "Their extensive library of game titles, including the MegaJackpots titles will provide our players with exciting levels of play, increasing the overall experience on our floor."
Boot Hill Casino & Resort features over 590 electronic gaming machines, 18 table games, and 5 live poker tables. Phase I of the $90 million project opened in December 2009. Phase II, which is targeted for completion in the fall of 2012, will include an additional 200 electronic gaming machines for a total of 800 electronic gaming machines. The property is managed by BHCMC, LLC, a subsidiary of Butler National Service Corporation, a Kansas corporation. The lottery facility games at Boot Hill Casino & Resort are owned and operated by the Kansas Lottery. The Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission provides regulatory oversight for the casino.
