The Herald Bulletin - 8:13 p.m.: Bar owners ready for pull tabs

The Herald Bulletin - 8:13 p.m.: Bar owners ready for pull tabs:

"Tavern owners are hoping pull-tab games will strengthen their customer base beginning this summer.

Gov. Mitch Daniels on Wednesday signed a law allowing bars to offer pull tabs and other forms of low-stakes gambling.
“I think everybody is ready,” said Sherry Watson, owner of the Third Base Pub in Anderson.
She estimated that most local bars would use pull tabs to boost sales, and that the games would bring older customers back to her bar.
“I think the pull tabs appeal more toward older people,” Watson said.
Paper pull tabs come in a variety of game styles, but most cost $1 and pay off when the player pulls a perforated tab to reveal numbers that match digits on the outside of the card."
