Victoryland reopens Tuesday afternoon

(WTVM) - Hundreds of people were on hand just a few hours ago as an Alabama casino reopened after being closed for two years.

Owner Milton McGregor's attorney says 400 of Victoryland's 1,200 machines are operational with more coming online daily.

Tuesday's reopening is likely to set up a confrontation with the state Attorney General Luther Strange.

Strange says he offered Victoryland the opportunity to go to court to prove its operations are legal, but that didn't happen.
