McGregor, Lucky Palace settle ‘bingo’ judgmentcomment (0)

September 6, 2012


Electronic bingo gambling enthusiasts have kept several courtrooms across the state busy, specifically as related to operations in Macon County, Houston County and Lowndes County.

In late August, a settlement between VictoryLand (Macon County) casino owner Milton McGregor and Lucky Palace LLC was reported by The Associated Press. Terms of the settlement are confidential.

The original lawsuit was filed by Lucky Palace and 15 charities against McGregor and Macon County Sheriff David Warren for refusing to issue licenses to operate electronic bingo games near VictoryLand, AP reported. The jury returned a $64 million verdict against McGregor in May. Warren was dropped from the lawsuit.

In Lowndes County, the more than 100 machines confiscated from what was White Hall gaming center in 2009 have been ordered destroyed, according to CBS 42.

And in Houston County, the judge assigned to the Center Stage case where 600 machines and more than $283,000 were seized in late July has recused himself from the case. A motion also was filed to have the case dismissed. The attorney general had not responded to the motions at press time.
