The three major gaming equipment companies have reached an agreement with Attorney General Luther Strange to pull their electronic bingo machines out of Alabama. This was a major accomplishment and one that may signal the end of the bingo controversy that has been such a hot topic in Alabama over the past several years. The agreement, which does not apply to the three Creek Indian casinos in the state, is a blow both to dormant casinos in Alabama and to any persons or entities who might want to resume electronic bingo in our state.
The three major manufacturers of gambling machines – International Gaming Technology, Bally Technologies and Multimedia Games – all signed agreements with the Attorney General last month to remove their machines from the state within 60 days. I understand that most of the bingo machines played in the state are owned by those gaming companies and leased to casino owners for a share of the revenue. Additionally, two other companies – Cadillac Jack and Hest Technology – had previously removed their machines from the state. Under the agreement, the gaming companies didn’t concede they did anything illegal in Alabama, but their machines are no longer available for use in the state.
