Minnesota legislators discuss if e-pull tabs too closely resemble slot machines

“Prior to the discussion on the House floor Wednesday, Rep. Zach Stephenson, who authored the bill, shared a video with lawmakers where he points out that tribal governments see these games as too closely resembling slot machines, which goes against the law written in 2012. At that time, agreements between the state, tribal governments and charities stated that electronic gaming would be basically an upgrade from paper pull tabs. Now, Stephenson and a majority of other house members agreed this afternoon that the state needs to stick to that initial agreement.”
