MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A judge has ordered the state to return seized electronic gambling machines to Greenetrack after finding that the machines comply with state law.

Circuit Judge Houston L. Brown on Wednesday gave the state 30 days to give the casino back the 825 gambling machines seized in a 2010 raid.

Brown found that the machines complied with a 2003 constitutional amendment authorizing bingo through “electronic marking machine” in Greene County.

Greenetrack CEO Luther “Nat” Winn praised the decision and said he hoped that the state attorney general would respect the decision.

While the decision was a victory for Greenetrack, the Alabama Supreme Court has consistently ruled that the electronic gambling machines are illegal under state law.
