Gambling machines seized in casino raid

Posted: Updated:


    The state Attorney General's office and state troopers have raided an electronic bingo casino in Lowndes County.  More than 350 gambling machines were seized.
    Attorney General Luther Strange said a search warrant was served Friday at Southern Star Entertainment Center in White Hall after an investigation of several months.  The casino opened in March with what it described as legal bingo machines, but Strange said they were illegal. He said cash was seized along with the machines.
    A nearby casino, White Hall Entertainment Center, was raided and closed during former Governor Bob Riley's crackdown on gambling halls.
    The attorney general conducted a similar raid at Center Stage casino in Dothan in July.
