A lottery bill is waiting approval from the Alabama House of Representatives. This comes after it was approved by the Senate.
This bill could open the door for a casino in Jackson County or DeKalb County. Right now, opinions are mixed about a potential casino in the area.
"I would love to go to it," said Tivoli Justice, who lives in Jackson County.
"'I'm against a casino in my county or the surrounding counties," said Brandon Patrick from DeKalb County.
The amendment would make way for casinos in counties across Alabama and for a state lottery funding education.
"I'm not 100% for a lottery, but I'm not necessarily opposed to it. But a casino is a whole different ball game," said Patrick.
Near Jackson and DeKalb Counties, both Tennessee and Georgia have state lotteries.
"If it's here, it'll help out Alabama instead of Georgia," said Justice.
A lot of people we spoke with had some moral concerns about a casino nearby.
"It dilutes the family environment of the community. The spin-off businesses of it," said Patrick.
If the bill makes it through, it would require a statewide vote to become an official amendment. The first $750 million of gaming revenue would go toward broadband infrastructure. There would also be a 20% tax on casino profits.
