Butler National makes Kansas shortlist

11 January 2008

THE, Kansas -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Butler National Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: BUKS) a recognized provider of professional management services in the gaming industry, announces that the Kansas Lottery has narrowed the competition for Management of a Destination Facility in Dodge City, Kansas that includes a casino to Butler National and another company.

On April 19, 2007, the State of Kansas enacted the Kansas Expanded Lottery Act. The Kansas Lottery established an initial deadline of September 29, 2007 for filing of the applications for a Management Contract to manage the Destination Facility and Casino. Butler National timely filed its proposal prior to September 29. The Lottery extended the deadline until December 26, 2007. Two competitors filed applications, one on December 26 and one on December 27, 2007.

At a special meeting on January 7, 2008, the five-member Kansas Lottery Commission unanimously denied a request for extension of the deadline for filing the proposals in the Southwest Gaming Zone (Ford County, Kansas) would not be extended. See the Kansas Lottery website: kslottery.com/ExpandedLotteryAct/ExpandedLotteryNews.

The effect of the ruling narrows the competition in Dodge City to one other potential applicant besides Butler National.

"We continue to appreciate the support and commitment of Dodge City and Ford County in moving forward with this tremendous opportunity for tourism, economic development and gaming. We believe that our management proposal offers the strongest tourist-drawing destination facility in the best interest of all Kansans," commented Clark D. Stewart, President and Chief Executive Officer.
