EUTAW, Ala. (AP) - Greenetrack in Eutaw has become the first closed Alabama casino to reopen.
Greenetrack had a line of customers when it opened 100 electronic bingo machines at midday Friday.
President Luther "Nat" Winn said the machines have been reviewed by Greene County law enforcement officials, who determined they comply with the law.
Greenetrack had about 800 gambling machines seized by the
governor's gambling task force last July.
The task force maintained they were illegal slots.
The new machines don't have the flashy appearance of the old machines.
They look like computer monitors and they require a PIN number to play.
Greenetrack's casino was one of more than 30 gambling operations
around Alabama that were forced to close last year under pressure
from the task force.
