State Wins Electronic Bingo Case

A Mobile County Circuit Court has ruled in favor of the state in an electronic bingo case. The court agrees that the MOWA Band of Choctaw Indians were operating illegal electronic bingo machines at a center in Mount Vernon when the state performed a raid. The ruling says the group must forfeit the 50 machines and more than $10,000 state agents seized from Choctaw Entertainment Center during the raid. Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange says that the money will be transferred to the state’s general fund and that the machines will be destroyed as directed by the court.
