Though legal gambling is becoming increasingly more popular nationwide, charities in Minnesota may be running into some regulatory trouble. The state Senate held a hearing Wednesday on the functionality of electronic pull tabs, or e pull tabs, which could negatively impact charities and the businesses hosting them across the state.The Minnesota legislature is reacting to a state judge’s ruling a year ago about whether or not e pull tabs too closely resemble slot machines. The judge ruled they don’t. The bill before the Senate would further regulate their use. Electronic pull-tabs are considered an important way for charities such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) to gain much needed funds.
