Controversy and Federal Investigation Interferes With the Gaming Interests
This unique place of the entertainment business in Alabama, which is called Quincy’s Triple Seven Bingo Casino and is also called Victory Land, has a most colorful history. Most of the controversy involves state officials of the State of Alabama and most of the controversial issues evolved over the use of electronic gaming devices. Big legal pressures finally came to most heated point two years ago when the state mandated that Quincy’s Triple Seven Bingo Casino in Shorter, Alabama be closed, because of the electronic gambling. Big time arrests as the owner of Victory Land, Milton McGregor underwent a federal investigation. As a result, some state officials, and some lobbyists were restricted from doing any business at the Quincy’s Triple Seven Bingo Casino (Victory Land). The owner countersued and was acquitted of all federal charges in March of 2012. He won his appeal and two years later, he was given the right to re-open his business. Guests were allowed to enter the casino and all of the other facilities in December of that same year, 2012. Nevertheless, Mr. McGregor is part of the gaming history of Alabama. The earliest gaming featured what was called ‘dog tracks’ and was, in fact, the uniqueness of greyhound dogs racing against themselves. Today, Victory Land is once again known as the special place to go for guests to enjoy the entertainment of greyhound racing, enjoying gaming at a casino, and staying over at a hotel in Shorter, Alabama.
