Bingo hall in Lowndes County to reopen

Montgomery, AL – - The electronic bingo casino in White
Hall is planning to reopen while asking the Alabama Supreme Court
to reconsider a gambling decision that forced the operation to shut
down temporarily.
Attorney Joe Espy said Monday a reconsideration request was
being prepared for the Alabama Supreme Court. The court ruled Nov.
13 that the games at White Hall must meet six criteria, including
numbers being announced one by one and players being required to
mark their cards.
The White Hall Resort and Entertainment Center shut down its 900
electronic bingo machines after the ruling. Espy said the
entertainment center is planning to reopen soon with revised games
that will meet the Supreme Court's requirements.
