Alaska AG wants bingo machines out of Indian casinos

Montgomery, Alaska (AP) February 2011

Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange has written a letter to the National Indian Gaming Commission asking that electronic bingo machines be banned from Indian-operated casinos in Alabama.

In his letter Strange said the electronic bingo machines are not allowed under Alabama law and that state non-Indian casinos offering the games have closed.

Strange said in the letter that electronic bingo machines are “patently illegal” under Alabama law.

A spokeswoman for Gov. Robert Bentley, Rebekah Mason, told The Birmingham News the governor supports Strange’s efforts on gambling.
