MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Electronic pulltab games are being considered for the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport as state officials seek to boost revenue for its share of a new Minnesota Vikings stadium.

The airport authority meets Monday to consider installing six of the games in airport terminals. The airport already sells paper versions and is the state’s largest vendor of lottery tickets.

Minnesota is obligated to pay $348 million toward the nearly billion-dollar stadium that could open for the 2016 season. But early revenue projections have been lowered as expanded charitable gambling has started slowly.

Gov. Mark Dayton met Wednesday with state gambling and revenue officials, and said afterward the state expects sales to pick up as more vendors are approved and more locations have the games.
