ST. CLOUD – Earlier this week state officials revenue from e-pulltabs have not been meeting expectations.

One of the first organizations in the state to offer the electronic version was Howie’s in downtown St. Cloud, benefitting St. Cloud Youth Hockey.

Treasurer Joel Athmann says they saw a lot of interest in the new games for the partial month of September, but interest has dropped off since then.

Gov. Mark Dayton is downplaying the slow start to a gambling expansion that is the main financing tool for a new Minnesota Vikings football stadium. Dayton says he’s not worried because the gambling phase-in is at early stages and will pick up as more companies who supply the devices win state approval.

The new gambling is supposed to pay off state’s share of debt from the $975 million stadium.
