SHORTER, AL (WSFA) - The story of Alabama's bingo battle is developing by the minute.
Victoryland owner Milton McGregor asked for a clarification on the closing of his gaming center at the entertainment facility in Macon County Monday evening. He says the computers being upgraded are not those that operate the electronic bingo machines.
He says they are part of the "point of sale" system for transactions throughout the complex including the hotel, lounges and restaurants. To set the record straight, in speaking with WSFA 12 News Monday evening, McGregor said that the gaming center was closed for "computer upgrades" without detailing which computers were being modified.
As for the bingo machines, McGregor insists that all his machines have already been made compliant with an Alabama Supreme Court ruling last year that set out the legal definition of bingo. He says the machines have been certified by Gaming Laboratories International.
The Governor's Illegal Gambling Task Force is set to submit its response to Victoryland's filing from Monday as to why a circuit court's restraining order stopping a raid on Victoryland should be upheld.
