KANSAS CITY, Kan. (KCTV) - While sports betting is now legal in Kansas, you can’t place your bets just yet.

While state officials continue to work on regulatory issues surrounding the new law, one Kansas casino is closing in on finalizing plans, just in time for football season.

Hollywood Casino at Kansas Speedway is hoping to open a temporary Barstool Sportsbook the start of the NFL season. Anyone wishing to bet would be able to place in-person bets under the Turn 2 Sports Bar. Slot machines that sat there are being removed to make way for TVs, a bar, betting windows, kiosks and more.

Hollywood Casino also said the Sept. 11 race at Kansas Speedway will be called Hollywood Casino 400 presented by Barstool Sportsbook.
