The Minnesota State Lottery made plans to offer online games without state approval angering lawmakers. On Thursday a compromise was made regarding the state lottery's online activities which was moved into a Senate vote Friday where 56 of 61 senators voted for the compromise. The bill has been sent to the House for a final vote.
The compromise approves online ticket sales but bans online games and the sale of tickets at gas pumps and ATMs.
Lottery Executive Director Ed Van Petten said, 'It's obvious the movement was based on total misinformation, but it is what it is. The Legislature is telling me they don't want the additional revenue and that's their choice.'
Sen. Sandy Pappas said that the involvement of legislature would rack up $11.7 million in costs for the state, but 'sends a pretty clear message that the Senate does not want what they consider to be an expansion of online gambling without legislative approval.'
'There are going to be financial consequences."
