MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - If you visit Quincy's Triple 7 at Victoryland anytime soon you may notice a change in the bingo machines.

"The most noticeable thing to a customer would be the fact that it does not play as fast as it did play," says Victoryland owner, Milton McGregor.

He didn't waste any time asking Macon County's District Attorney to inspect the machines there.

"We got proactive," he says.

McGregor says he had them re-configured to be on the safe side.

He's says they comply with the state supreme court's recent ruling defining bingo in Alabama.

"We wanted to remove any question in anybody's mind whatsoever that our machines are 100% legal."

The ruling came after a raid on the Whitehall gaming center in Lowndes County. State agents seized more than 100 machines and half a million dollars in cash.

Despite the raid and the ruling, McGregor says he isn't worried.

"Every lawyer that I have says clearly it does not apply to us."

Take for instance, Victoryland's latest expansion--A new multi-million dollar hotel next to the gaming center.

"My lawyers would not have let me borrow a dime if it weren't legal, and the lending institutions would not have lent me the money to do this were it not legal."
