Alabama rules against two gambling facilities
The Supreme Court said that they will maintain their position in two cases regarding bingo and slot machines.
US.- The Alabama Supreme Court ruled on Friday that the state can keep 800 bingo machines that used to belong to Greentrack Bingo & Racing and slot machines from Victoryland. According to the justice, the bingo machines are actually illegal slot machines.
A good portion of the machines seized from Victoryland were operated and sold by the Poarch Band of Creek Indiands at the tribal casino in Alabama, and the law states that without a Class III gaming compact they can’t legally offer slot machines in the facility. Victoryland is also facing three suits from people who claim that they were denied the jackpots after they won because workers of the casino told them that the machines were broken or malfunctioned.
The casino said that the house rules need to be settled outside the legal system, but the court established that since the machines are illegal, Victoryland has no standing in how to operate and regulate the rules.
