PITTSBURG, KANSAS -

3/13: Today, the Kansas Crossing Casino + Hotel announced that the $80-million facility will open its doors to the public on Friday, March 31st at 10:30 a.m.

“This day means a lot to the many people that had a hand in making it happen,” said Carter Bair, Director of Marketing. “None of this would be possible without the support of the City of Pittsburg, Crawford County, and the state of Kansas.”

The casino will also be hosting early access dates during the last week of March for select individuals to attend. “The Sneak Peeks allow us to reward those individuals that were among the first to sign up for our players club” Bair said, “we hope to add more before we open on the 31st.”
