Add another electronic game to help pay for the new Vikings stadium.

Monday afternoon the Minnesota Gambling Control Board approved electronic bingo.

The linked bingo games allow gamblers at different locations to play together, increasing the size of jackpots.
Electronic bingo comes months after electronic pulltabs started rolling into local bars.
