The new Hollywood Casino at Kansas Speedway will hold a pre-opening test of its operations next week for state regulators.
The state-owned casino is scheduled to open Feb. 3. It overlooks at turn at the NASCAR track in Kansas City, Kan.
Guests at Monday's nine-hour demonstration will be invited to gamble, with the revenues going to two charities. The run-through is required by the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission to ensure that the casino has adequate internal financial controls and that it's ready for the customers.
Hollywood Casino plans to donate proceeds from the demonstration to Sunflower House, which works to protect children from physical and sexual abuse, and to a foundation that supports public schools in Kansas City, Kan.
