Follow the money: an interactive map of Minnesota’s electronic pulltab gaming

They’re the Minnesota Vikings, and the law that funds the public contribution to their new stadium covers the whole state.

But the actual landscape of the new games is another story: the money is concentrated, at least according to the most recent data available, mostly around the Interstate 94 corridor.

Below, you’ll find a map of the games in February, built with data from the Minnesota Gambling Control Board. Red markers reflect bars that DON’T make the state’s $225 per day per machine projection. Green markers show the bars that DO make the projection, and the blue markers show the bars that are in the state’s Top 10.

Click on each marker to see the name of the bar, its location, who supplies its games, how many devices the location hosts, and what the daily “handle” was, per machine, per day, in the most recent data available.

    He has never had a management position at any level. All he know’s how to do is campaign. The only time he looks himself is when he starts getting in the groove with his stump speech mentality. He doesn’t know what to do.

    Of course, this was brought up during the campaign, but because most of the mainstream media, including MPR/NPR were so caught up in his cult of personality, and covering for his every weakness, we now watch his fall from greatness.

    America is waking up to the realization that this guy is in over his head.

      Wow, what a surprise, “AndyBriebart” hates Obama. Funny how a guy that is so incompetent managed to drag us out of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression—despite the best efforts of nearly every Republican to ensure the maximum amount of suffering for this country. Yet that “management expert” W led us to the cliff in the first place. This criticism is just more empty-headed narrative engineering by Politico, anything to attract attention.

    this guy is in over his head. = = = not sure how I would determine that. Sure I may agree or disagree with his policy decisions. But how can I ever know what factors he weighed and how he chooses. Just saying tough to KNOW if a president is in over his head.
