The Kansas Lottery Commission has approved a change of management for the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane.
The commission on Wednesday approved the merger of Boyd Gaming and Peninsula Gaming, transferring Peninsula's management contract for the Kansas Star to Boyd.
The commission regulates companies that operate casinos for the Kansas Lottery in Dodge City, Mulvane and Kansas City, Kan.
Boyd spent $1.45 billion to buy Peninsula's five casinos, including the Kansas Star. The deal is expected to close in December.
Boyd must pass background checks and be licensed by the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission. The commission meets Friday in Dodge City.
Boyd officials say no changes are planned in the Kansas Star's management, future development plans, or anything in Peninsula's contract with the state.
