October revenues were up considerably at the Hollywood Casino at Kansas Speedway, according to figures released by the Kansas Lottery Commission.
The casino in Kansas City, Kan., reported revenues of $11.2 million during October. It was an increase over the $10.5 million reported in September.
In a written report to the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission, Bob Sheldon, vice president and general manager of Hollywood Casino, reported that October 2013 revenue was up 16 percent over October 2012 revenue.
In his report, Sheldon stated that the October race weekend was very successful for the Hollywood Casino. It held a giveaway in conjunction with the race, where one person won $20,000.
“We continue to tweak our marketing programs over race weekend to drive incremental traffic to the casino,” Sheldon wrote in his report.
Hollywood Casino also got a boost from its Pigskin Payoff Promotion with the resurgence of the Kansas City Chiefs, he reported.
While Hollywood Casino revenues were up, other state-owned casinos did not do as well in October.
Boot Hill Casino in Dodge City, Kan., reported revenues of $2.9 million in October as compared to $3.1 million in September, according to Kansas Lottery figures.
Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane, Kan., reported $14.39 million in revenues during October, a flat amount compared to the previous month. October admissions were down 11 percent compared to September, according to a Kansas Star Casino report.
