Indian gambling

The Governor reiterated today that he wants to get a share of the profits from Indian casinos. The state doesn't have accurate numbers, but it is estimated that the gaming industry in Minnesota takes in between $1 and $2 billion a year.

This is another thing I don't really care about. I am generally against a government monopoly or restriction on gambling (if you're going to allow it in one place, you should allow it everywhere), but the current compacts were accepted by both sides, so they stand. But if we do get new compacts that share revenue with the state, could we get a deal that allows Las Vegas-style gambling here? I want to play me some craps, and I am sick of driving to Wisconsin to do it.
