Country Crossing casino developer Ronnie Gilley says VictoryLand owner Milton McGregor would have received the lion's share of the revenue from the Dothan casino if it had not been shut down.

Gilley testified in Alabama's gambling corruption trial Thursday that McGregor invested heavily in the Country Crossing project and got a big financial interest. He said McGregor was due to get more revenue than him, but the casino never turned a profit before being forced to close last year.

Gilley has pleaded guilty and is testifying against McGregor and eight other defendants in the trial.

One of McGregor's attorneys said in opening statements last month that the VictoryLand owner and others associated with VictoryLand provided $14 million for Gilley's project, but never got their money back.
