Electronic pulltabs are coming to a charitable-gambling site near you, thanks to financing provisions in the Minnesota Vikings stadium bill signed into law last week. Do you plan to try them out?
Two local American Legion posts are featured in a Star Tribune article about the new electronic pulltabs—the Fridley post is pictured and the manager at the Kraus-Hartig post in Spring Lake Park is quoted:
Don LaCroix, manager of the Spring Lake Park American Legion, is among the hundreds of charitable gambling leaders waiting to hear how Minnesota will roll out its games -- games that haven't even been invented by a manufacturer yet.
LaCroix hasn't decided whether he'll buy any new games, largely because no one knows their cost and how complicated they will be to run.
"We would need someone at the counter to load them, whatever hardware or software is required to run them, space for them ... insurance. What if someone walks out the door with those iPads?" he asked.
"And can we get customers who want to use them?"
Same question: Will you buy the new electronic pulltabs? Does it make a difference to you that the Vikings stadium funding relies on income from pulltabs? Leave a comment below.
