KIMT News 3 — At first, they seemed like a great plan, but now electronic pull tabs are not making the splash they were expected to.

According to numbers – there isn’t a big interest in the new electronic pull-tab gambling system and that means money isn’t exactly flowing in for the new Vikings stadium

Only 300 bars currently have the e-tabs, which is short of initial expectations.

Lawmakers say while the numbers look bad, it maybe a little early to call the move a total wash.

“We’ve gone into the venture,” State Representative Jeanne Poppe (DFL) Austin said. “I think it’s probably not enough time to actually analyze whether or not it’s been successful or failed to the level that people would expect that it has.”

Minnesota is shifting to a backup source to fund the stadium.

That includes a one-time levy on cigarettes and a corporate tax.
