Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey's Study Group on Gambling Policy released its findings last week in an 876-page report. The report recommends legalization of five to seven casinos, a state lottery and sports betting.
The Study Group on Gambling Policy Report recommends:
Legalization of five to seven casinos with Vegas-style casino gaming. Potential locations were excluded from the report. Estimated tax revenue is $300-$400 million per year.
Legalization of a state lottery. Estimated state revenue is $200-$300 million per year.
Legalization of sports betting. Estimate state revenue is $10 million per year.
"Gambling will work in Alabama and we feel that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages," said Todd Strange, the chairman of the study group.
Last year, the Poarch Band of Creek Indians proposed a plan to pay the state $1 billion to add Vegas-style casino gaming (Class III) to its Wind Creek Casinos in Atmore, Montgomery and Wetumpka. In addition the Tribe would build two new Class III casino in North Alabama.

Each casino will operate four gaming sessions every day. At the end of each session the casino will be deep cleaned before the next session. Guests can make advance reservations for specific sessions beginning June 3. Whenever a casino reaches its occupancy limit, newly-arriving guests must wait in special areas until there is availability inside.
Hotels will also restrict the number of guest. Hotel occupancy will be limited to 50 percent so that room can remain unoccupied for 24 hours before deep cleaning.

A bill introduced this week in the Alabama Senate proposes both a state lottery and the Poarch Creek Indians' plan to add Vegas-style casino gaming and two new casinos. Senator Greg Albritton (R- Atmore) explains his bill puts these issues into legislative form as a first step in the process towards amending the state constitution, which currently prohibits any type of gambling.
The Poarch Creek Indians have publically promoted their gambling plan to generate $1 billion in state revenues. The tribe would pay the state $225 million for exclusive casino rights across the state, pay a percentage of revenues at the three existing casinos, and build two commercial casino resorts that will pay 25% taxes on revenues.
For details on the Poarch Creek Indians gambling plan, see the Press Release.
Sen. Albritton hopes his bill will progress through the legislative process in time for voter approval in November's election. He believes it would be helpful to Gov. Ivey's Study Group on Gambling Policy for consideration and inclusion in their report.

During her State-of-the-State Address last week, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey announced plans to set up a study group to gather facts on the impact of a lottery and the expansion of Poarch Creek Indians casinos on the state. The governor wants the findings by the end of the year.
She explained, "That's all I want is the facts, not recommendations. I just want the facts about how much money the state can expect to gain if we just do a lottery or if we do expanded gaming or if we do a compact and what the heck does a compact look like? What are the components of a compact? What are the responsibilities of both parties? We don't know."
Last November the Poarch Creek Indians proposed a $1 billion gambling plan for Alabama. It included a $225 million payment to the state for an exclusive compact for all casino gaming, two new resort casinos in the state, Class III table games and sports betting, licensing fees and revenue sharing payments to the state, and support of a paper state lottery.
For details about the Poarch Creek Indians proposal, read the Press Release.
The Poarch Creek Indians are the only federally-recognized tribe in Alabama. The tribe currently own and operate three casinos in the state: Wind Creek Casino and Hotel Wetumpka , Wind Creek Casino and Hotel Atmore and Wind Creek Casino and Hotel Montgomery.
In addition the Poarch Band of Creek Indians own and operate Wind Creek Bethlehem in Pennsylvania, the Pensacola Greyhound Park and Creek Entertainment Gretna in Florida and the Renaissance Hotels in Aruba and Curacao. The tribe also financed and operates the Wa She Shu Casino in Gardnerville, Nevada, owned by the Washoe Tribe.

Public Awareness Campaign Outlines Plan's Details
POARCH CREEK INDIAN RESERVATION, Ala., Nov. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Poarch Band of Creek Indians today announced a public awareness campaign focused on communicating details of their comprehensive plan for gaming in Alabama.
Poarch's solid plan is designed to generate billions of dollars in new revenues to the State, create thousands of new jobs, and regulate and tax gaming interests. It also calls for the construction of two deluxe tourist resorts in the northern part of the State, and supports citizens' rights to vote on gaming issues, including whether Alabama should also have the kind of traditional lottery that other neighboring states have in place.
"We have long believed that the economic power of gaming should be strategically harnessed to create opportunities for everyone who lives in Alabama," noted Stephanie Bryan, Poarch Tribal Chair and CEO. "This plan does that, and we are committed to making sure that our positions on gaming and our commitment to helping improve the quality of life in Alabama are clear."
In recent weeks, the Tribe and its gaming business (PBCI Gaming) have been the subject of a public misinformation campaign funded by an anonymous group. The sole purpose of that group's work was to misrepresent the Tribe's position on gaming in the State, confuse the issues surrounding gaming regulation and taxation, and damage Poarch's reputation.
By contrast, the Poarch Band of Creek Indians made the decision to state publicly what they propose in the way of a solid, comprehensive plan for gaming in the State through a public awareness campaign that includes a gaming policy-focused website www.winningforalabama.com. The website gives citizens a platform to voice their opinions on specific gaming issues. It also provides opportunities for communities across Alabama to alert the Tribe and other State leaders about their critical needs.
"We hope that the information we are making available will prompt both citizens and our State's legislators to seriously consider a solid plan for gaming that can have real economic benefits for Alabama," said Chairwoman Bryan. "We believe that it is important everyone in the State has access to honest information and constructive ideas so they can make the best decisions about an issue that is critically important to Alabama's economic well-being and quality of life."
