Atmore, Alabama -- A 17-story casino hotel being built by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians rises out of the rolling farmlands and pine forests of south Alabama, an eye-catching tower for the stream of travelers on Interstate 65.
To make sure drivers don't miss the casino exit, a 65-foot-high electronic sign will beckon them to the site, which tribal leaders hope will gain a reputation as a destination resort.
The casino is to be filled with 1,600 electronic bingo games in halls enlivened by the flashing lights and ringing bells of a Las Vegas-style gambling palace. But that kind of high-stakes gambling still isn't allowed in Alabama - on or off tribal land, at least not yet - a divisive issue for years between state officials and Alabama's only federally recognized American Indian tribe.
