Scores of cars lined up outside the facility east of Montgomery waiting on it to resume operations Tuesday afternoon.
The state seized more than a thousand of the slot-like gambling machines during a raid at VictoryLand in 2013. The Alabama Supreme Court in March ruled the machines were not what was intended by state laws allowing card and paper type bingo games.
Owner Milton McGregor last month announced the reopening of the electronic bingo business.
McGregor says Macon County’s sheriff and district attorney have assured him the games are legal. He says the casino will offer 500 bingo terminals.
