Rumors VictoryLand was going to reopen surfaced the middle of last week. By Friday (March 5) rumors became reality as hundreds of patrons resumed playing many of the 6,400 electronic bingo machines at the entertainment center in Shorter.
A series of events led to hundreds of employees returning to work at the facility that had been shut down February 4 by owner Milton McGregor to prevent Gov. Bob Riley's Anti-Gambling Task Force from conducting a raid to seize machines and proceeds.
VictoryLand avoided a raid by Task Force director John Tyson and about 100 Alabama State Troopers on January 29 by obtaining a restraining order from Fifth Circuit Judge Tom Young.
