Yes, legalize it. Minnesota should also open state-run casinos with the same transparency as the state lottery. Everyone will know exactly how much money is being poured in, and how much money per game is being returned to the players. The Native American casinos can of course continue to operate, but will have to decide if they want to continue the secrecy behind what they're taking in and paying out. But as to online gaming, yes, legalize it and just make sure firm controls are in place to protect the players from malfeasance (games that you can't possibly win, etc.). Anyone with half a brain knows that the odds are against you in any gambling. But it's entertainment, not an investment, and people (should) know that. The revenues from expanded legalized gambling would eliminate the need for higher taxes. It might even be enough to lower taxes a bit.
