McGregor Acquitted of Electronic Bingo Bribery to Reopen Casino


After McGregor's recent acquittal for allegedly buying and selling votes in an effort to protect electronic bingo machines, he plans on opening his VictoryLand Casino in Shorter, Alabama.

"Now I'm focused on getting 3,000 people back to work and charities and governmental agencies receiving revenue, as they should have been all the time," Milton McGregor told The Associated Press.

He plans on reopening in a few months with electronic bingo machines in an attempt to gain his clientele he lost to Indian Casinos.

His operation was the largest electronic bingo casino in the country with 6,400 machines. McGregor estimates that he will have 50-60 percent of the machines back when it was initially closed.

Attorney General Luther Strange said rulings by the Alabama Supreme Court and other courts have made it clear "only the traditional game of bingo is authorized in Alabama and slot machines cannot be used to play bingo."

"Those currently engaged in illegal gambling activities or contemplating opening an illegal gambling facility under the guise of so-called 'electronic bingo' should be aware that this office will continue to enforce the law, period," he warned.

McGregor commented that he wanted to get back in business and give the Indian Casinos competition.

"We are entitled to the same thing the Native Americans have in Montgomery, Wetumpka and Atmore. The difference is we pay city, county and state taxes," he said.
