TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Lottery Commission has extended the deadline for applications for managers of a planned casino in southeast Kansas to Jan. 30.

The original deadline was Friday. The state-owned casino is planned for a region that includes Cherokee and Crawford counties.

Executive Director Terry Presta said the deadline was extended to allow recently appointed board members time to learn the duties.

The Joplin Globe reports (https://bit.ly/1GuUdXz ) two developers have already said they will compete to build a casino in Crawford County. Another developer has indicated interest in building a casino in Cherokee County.

After Jan. 30 deadline, the lottery will have 90 days to negotiate contracts with qualified applicants. A lottery review board will select the contract and the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission will approve or reject the applicant.
