LUBBOCK, TX -- The Texas Lottery Commission will discuss adding video confirmation screens for pull-tab tickets to bingo halls.

Pull-tab tickets are an instant win game like a lottery scratch off ticket.

The screens would only confirm a win, not be a part of the actual game.

Opponents of the confirmation screen say the screens resemble slot machines and would encourage "casino-type" gambling in the state.

Supporters of the screens say they would draw in more customers and make more money for bingo halls and the charities they support.

The Texas Lottery Commission is scheduled to discuss the confirmation screens Wednesday April 16th.
