ROSEVILLE, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota regulators have approved the first electronic pull-tab games to help pay for a new Vikings stadium.
The Gambling Control Board signed off Tuesday on five new animated versions of the paper pull-tabs that have long been a fixture in bars.
The new games from Las Vegas-based Acres 4.0 include "Treasures of the Jungle" and "Big Money Heist."
The vote clears the way for charitable gaming operators to start offering the iPad games in bars.
Lawmakers are relying on taxes from electronic pull-tabs to help the state repay borrowing for the $975 million stadium in downtown Minneapolis.
