Electronic Pull-Tabs approved in Minnesota

| No Comments

Minnesota's first electronic pull tabs were approved Tuesday morning by the state Gambling Control Board, clearing the way for funding for a new Vikings Stadium, reported Jean Hopfensperger of the Star Tribune.

The new pull tabs are set to hit bars and restaurants around the Twin Cities immediately, and the state hopes they will help raise the $350 million the state promised for a new Vikings Stadium, Hopfensperger said.

And while the funding is set, Tom Halden of Fox 9 said the design of the stadium is not. He added the winning design firm will be awarded $50 million for their work.

Mancini's Char House and Lounge and O'Gara's Bar and Grille are among the first to install the new electronic versions of pull tabs, which feature games like "Treasures of the Jungle" and "Big Money Heist", according to Martiga Lohn of the Pioneer Press.

Hopfensperger added the Gambling Board is likely to approve more games and vendors in the months ahead.
