The Las Vegas Sands Corporation has been successful in placing casinos around the United States. they are currently pursuing building one in Wyandotte County in Kansas.
The company brought a list of 5,000 signatures to the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas, on Wednesday morning. The list held the signatures of residents that were in favor of the company securing the casino bid for the county.
Wyandotte is one of the counties that has the rights to a casino from the Kansas Expanded Lottery Act of last year. Six proposals have been submitted and remain for the county.
The Sands had two proposals in for the casino, but has been waiting for the local endorsement that was required. It was originally decided that the local endorsements had to be delivered by December 31st. That changed, however, when state lottery officials decided the endorsements just had to be in before May 27th.
That date is when the proposals will have to go before the Gaming Facility Review Board. There is still a challenge going on in the state Supreme Court regarding the casino expansion.
No decision has come down on that challenge as of yet. Two new proposals have been submitted by the sands Corporation for review.

The mega Millions lottery jackpot has become very popular in 2008. The jackpot has grown to almost record numbers and has payed out big time for lucky winners.
Once again this week, the jackpot appeared headed towards one of those larger than life numbers. It had grown to $135 million. That is as far as it will get, however.
The latest drawing of the lottery was Tuesday night. The hopes were that nobody would match all five numbers plus the Mega Ball. Those hopes were not to be.
A winning ticket was sold in Detroit, Michigan. More specifically, the ticket was sold at a Wayne County Redford Township gas station.
“Congratulations to Michigan’s newest millionaire. We look forward to presenting you with your check,” said Scott Bowen, state lottery Commissioner.
The winning numbers from the Tuesday drawing were 4-17-26-46-56, and the Mega Ball number was 25. The winner now has the choice of being paid one lump sum, which would equate to $84.1 million after taxes, or receive an annual payment for 26 years.
