Indian casinos will not shut down e-bingo operations

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - Electronic bingo at Indian Reservations in Alabama is legal according to the federal agency that oversees Indian gambling.

The National Indian Gaming Commission says Indian tribes are not bound by the state's definition of bingo.

The response is to the attorney general's request for the commission to bar the electronic games from the Indian casinos in Wetumpka, Montgomery and Atmore.
