Poarch Band of Creek Indians were ruled in favor on by 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday.

Alabama has been attempting to close the tribe's three casinos.

The ruling that came from the three judge panel was unanimous. The tribe operates the casinos on their land giving them sovereign immunity.

Currently state law does not allow slot machine gaming. The casinos operate electronic bingo games. The state believes that these bingo games fall into that category.

The Poarch Band of Creek Indians also own land near Pensacola, FL. Gov. Rick Scott has been approached by the tribe asking to make an arrangement that would allow for them to operate a casino there.

A majority share of the Pensacola Greyhound Track is owned by the tribe.

The status of that arrangement has not been released by the governor's office.
