09.01.21 – Montgomery, Alabama – The Alabama Track Owners Association (ATOA) has launched a statewide media campaign to communicate the following message directly to the citizens of Alabama:
Alabama is losing hundreds of millions of dollars in gaming and lottery revenue to Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida. This continues to happen year after year because the Alabama State Legislature has not approved the comprehensive gaming and lottery plan that would give the people of Alabama the chance to vote on a constitutional amendment. If the constitutional amendment approving the comprehensive gaming and lottery plan were to pass, the State of Alabama would generate hundreds of millions of dollars in additional tax revenue that could be used to fund Alabama priorities including broadband, healthcare, college & trade school scholarships, new job growth, workforce development, and new business opportunities.
The Alabama Track Owners Association (ATOA) is asking the citizens of Alabama to call their legislators and tell them to pass a comprehensive gaming and lottery bill now. The toll-free phone number is 1-855-Gaming-1 (1-855-426-4641).

About Alabama Track Owners Association (ATOA):
The ATOA is a non-profit organization with four charter members: Birmingham Race Course, Greenetrack Bingo & Racing, Mobile Greyhound Park, and VictoryLand. The ATOA believes the citizens of Alabama should have the opportunity to vote on a comprehensive gaming and lottery plan that creates, regulates, and taxes an education lottery, sports betting, and casino gaming. The comprehensive gaming and lottery plan, if approved by the voters via constitutional amendment, will provide the State of Alabama with additional tax revenue to fund initiatives that will improve the quality of life for Alabama residents.
