Minneapolis airport considers gambling expansion

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport is eyeing a major expansion of gambling with a plan to sell Minnesota Lottery tickets on about 2,500 electronic tablets that are already installed in the main terminal.

Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan confirms Monday that the plan is under consideration by the Metropolitan Airports Commission.

Hogan says the proposal came from OTG Management, a concessions firm with 2,500 iPads at tables throughout the airport's Concourse G. The devices currently allow travelers to order food, check flight times and browse the web, but Hogan says they can easily be adapted to sell Powerball and Mega Millions tickets along with electronic versions of scratch-off games.

The airports commission could decide on the proposed expansion by next month.
