A recent visit showed that players of all types were comfortable with the games. Some played together, making it more sociable. Because the place is so small, folks could watch and comment on each other’s games.
Don Andert and Mark Growe were sharing a game. They each put in $10 and were winning enough small prizes that the money still hadn’t run out after 20 minutes. They teased each other as they played.
“It’s fun,” said Growe. “You got people to play with. You got three to four people going in on a jackpot.’ ”
After about a half-hour, the players had won enough times that they had $51 left in their game. They called it a day.
“That’s how you do it!” said Growe.
In the months ahead, Vikings fans and state officials hope that’s how more Minnesotans will do it, too.
