DALLAS - The Kansas Supreme Court issued a unanimous ruling Friday upholding an expansion of the state lottery act to allow casinos in designated zones across the state.

SB 66, the lottery expansion act passed by the Kansas Legislature in 2007, allowed the construction of casinos in four areas with approval from local voters. The designated casino zones are Wyandotte County, which includes Kansas City, Cherokee County in southeast Kansas, Sumner County in south-central Kansas, and Ford County in western Kansas, which includes Dodge City.
