There’s a fight over the money troubles surrounding the new Minnesota Vikings stadium, that’s supposed to cost about $975 million.
Gov. Mark Dayton says Minnesota’s Gambling Control Board should have disclosed from the beginning that gambling companies helped estimate the amount of tax revenue that would be raised by new electronic pulltab games tapped to fund a new Minnesota Vikings stadium.
There is now another way to gamble and help pay for the new Vikings stadium: electronic bingo. The Minnesota Gambling Control Board approved the high-tech bingo on Monday.
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.
A key lawmaker said electronic pulltabs are “gaining steam” as the preferred funding source for a new Vikings stadium.
