Item 8.01. Other Events.

Multimedia Games, Inc. (or "the Company") learned yesterday, December 22, 2005,
that the Jefferson County Sheriff served a search warrant, issued by an Alabama
state judge, on the Birmingham Race Course in Birmingham, Alabama. Pursuant to
such warrant, we believe sheriff's officers have removed approximately 300 of
the Company's computer servers and sweepstakes video readers from the race
course facility. We installed approximately 1,300 sweepstakes video readers at
the Birmingham facility, the majority of which were used, with a significant
portion of the readers being substantially or fully depreciated. 

We have been informed that on the afternoon of December 22, 2005, the Circuit
Court in Jefferson County, Alabama issued a temporary restraining order
preventing the Jefferson County Sheriff from removing additional units, and
essentially "freezing" matters until a preliminary injunction hearing, which we
expect to be held January 3, 2006. We do not believe our machines can be used in
the Birmingham facility until after such preliminary injunction hearing, if at

We are in the preliminary stages of assessing these developments and their
potential impact on our current or future operating results.


We first publicly discussed the introduction of our new promotional sweepstakes
system in Alabama on our December 1, 2005 conference call. The system, which is
leased to the Birmingham Race Course, became operational on December 15, 2005.

Prior to deploying our system, as is our general practice, we obtained and
relied upon independent legal opinions analyzing Alabama law as applied to
sweepstakes systems. We believe our system is in compliance with applicable law.
However, the gaming markets we address are heavily regulated, and we have
consistently disclosed the risks of regulatory enforcement action against our
customers and equipment. We intend to review these developments with our
customer, assess our legal position, and pursue available remedies, including
seeking the return of our equipment and a declaration that our system and games
comply with Alabama state law. There can be no assurance as to the outcome of
our efforts to avail our legal position or to have our equipment returned.



Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
