Bingo fans gather for opening weekend

MIDFIELD, AL (WBRC) - Many people in the area spent their weekend playing a little bingo.

Folks filled up the Midfield Bingo Hall on Bessemer Super Highway after they reopened. Several people said they are excited to see e-bingo back in Jefferson County.

Those bingo players told us they traveled to other gaming halls and casinos in neighboring states to play after the halls were closed here.

A judge ordered that the halls could reopen last week.
