MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Air travelers will soon be able to play electronic pulltabs at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
The Metropolitan Airports Commission on Monday approved installing electronic pulltabs at airport bars.
Minneapolis-based Express Games MN was selected as the first distributor to offer electronic pulltabs at the airport.
Express Games CEO Jon Weaver says the pilot program will start Jan. 2 at six bars at the airport.
Weaver says his company will offer electronic pulltabs at both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.
The electronic gambling games are being counted on to help pay Minnesota's share of a new Vikings stadium. Electronic pulltabs went into operation at Minnesota bars and restaurants in September.
