Tribal-owned casino opens in downtown KCK

Kansas City Star,  Friday, January 11, 2008 at 1:21:31 AM

Against all odds the tribal-owned 7th Street Casino in downtown Kansas City, Kan., has opened for business.

Despite a pending lawsuit by the state challenging the casino’s legality, the doors to the three-story, 20,000-square-foot gambling parlor across the street from City Hall opened to the public at 10 p.m. Thursday.

Before that, a few hundred invited officials and dignitaries filled the former Masonic temple to see the renovated building and a tribal dedication conducted in traditional American Indian dress.

Players found the historic building’s polished mahogany, brass and original green marble support pillars all still in place — but now themed as a Roaring ’20s speakeasy, complete with 430 slot machines and female employees in flapper dresses. the source

7th Street Casino to open Jan. 10

Kansas City Star,  Friday, December 28, 2007 at 10:22:00 AM

Even though legal action is pending, tribal owners said Thursday that the 7th Street Casino in downtown Kansas City, Kan., will open Jan. 10.

The Oklahoma-based Wyandotte Nation bought the former Scottish Rite structure at Seventh Street and Ann Avenue in 1996 and has been in court ever since fighting the state, the city and several Kansas-based tribes for rights to operate a casino on the grounds.

The Kansas attorney general’s office has filed a motion with the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver seeking to reverse an October decision in favor of the tribe. The state almost 12 years ago challenged the land’s status as de facto reservation land qualified for tribal gaming, but has never had an appellate court rule on the merits of its argument. the source
