Ala. ex-attorney general creates new bingo game
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The former Alabama attorney general who lost his job after feuding with the governor over electronic bingo has started a business that's selling a new twist on the game.
Al.com reports (http://bit.ly/11QXtIQ) ex-Attorney General Troy King, who was voted out of office in the 2010 Republican primary, now heads a company called Innovate! Technologies Group LLC. The company's product is a game called O-craps! — essentially bingo played on a felt-covered casino table like a dice game.
King says the game looks like craps, but with bingo balls and bingo cards.
When Gov. Bob Riley was in office and trying to shut down casinos offering electronic bingo, King maintained the games might be legal in Alabama.
King says he's focused on selling his new game in markets outside Alabama.
