VictoryLand owner plans to reopen despite losing legal fight

2

VictoryLand owner Milton McGregor says he will reopen his casino later this year despite losing a three-year legal battle over the legality of electronic bingo machines.

McGregor in a Monday press conference said he hoped to have the casino open by early summer.

McGregor criticized last week’s Alabama Supreme Court ruling that electronic gambling machines that had been seized are illegal.

The court ruled that the state could keep 1,615 gambling machines seized from VictoryLand in a 2013 raid.

McGregor said he has agreements with machine manufacturers to provide machines for the reopening.

The casino’s planned reopening could set off a new legal battle over the machines.
