Center Stage Alabama opens with 450 jobs

Just a few hours before doors opened to the public on Friday afternoon, a step ladder stretched toward the ceiling and the sound of vacuum cleaners and power tools could be heard at Center Stage Alabama.

Jeff Rubinan official with Center Stage Alabama, declined to make many comments about the facility’s official opening, but he took a couple of representatives from the Dothan Eagle on a tour of the bingo hall prior to its opening.

Rubin asked people to refer to the machines being used as “traditional paperless bingo” instead of electronic bingo. He said the facility includes more than 500 new machines. He declined to explain how the machines work, and suggested the Eagle employees come back later and play the machines.

“It's official, we're calling it traditional paperless bingo," Rubin said.

Hundreds of flat screen computer monitors filled a room that resembled a large computer lab. Each of the computer screens, which move with the touch of a finger, display a computerized bingo card in its center. The screens also display several icons, which include “touch to change denom by 5 cents,” “Help,” “Buy In” and “Play.” The words “Max Buy-In = 25 credits” line the bottom of the computer screen.
