Ala. Board Hears Casino's Liquor License Request

By  | 

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Representatives of the attorney general's office say the VictoryLand casino in Shorter is continuing to operate illegal electronic bingo machines and shouldn't be given a liquor license.

Deputy Attorney General Sonny Reagan urged the Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board on Wednesday to deny the casino's application. VictoryLand attorney Joe Espy said the machines have been determined to be legal by Macon County Sheriff David Warren and the license should be granted.

The casino reopened Dec. 18 after being closed for two years because of the state's crackdown on gambling machines.

VictoryLand has a liquor license for its simulcast horse and dog races.
