SETTLEMENT ORDER

This matter comes before me on the citations issued by the South Carolina Department of Revenue and Taxation against the respondents for violation of the Video Game Machines Act [S.C. Code Ann. § 12-21-2770 et seq. (Supp. 1995)] as follows:

(a) On or about August 16, 1995, Mid-South, Inc., d/b/a Jackpot Video Games was cited for advertising for the playing of machines by displaying a large sign on the front of its business with the term "Jackpot Video Games" visible from the public thoroughfare;
(b) On or about August 16, 1995, Mid-South, Inc., d/b/a Jackpot Video Games was cited for advertising for the playing of machines by displaying a large sign in front of its place of business with the words "We now have Black Jack 24 furs" visible from the public thoroughfare; and,
(c) On or about August 16, 1995, Coastal Coin, Inc., d/b/a Vegas World, was cited for advertising for the playing of machines by displaying a large sign on the front of its place of business with the words "Vegas World" visible from the public thoroughfare.

A hearing was scheduled for January 29, 1996. Prior to the hearing, the parties reached an agreement resolving the matter, and that agreement is incorporated into this Order.

The agreement between the parties is as follows:

1. The Respondents agree to remove the sign with the term "Jackpot Video Games" within two (2) weeks from the date of this order. Respondents further agree to cease and desist from using the term "Jackpot Video Games" on any of its signs visible from the public thoroughfare.

2. The Respondents agree to remove the sign with the term "We now have Black Jack 24 hours" within two (2) weeks from the date of this order. Respondents further agree to cease and desist from using the term, or similar terms, "We now have Black Jack 24 hours" on any of its signs visible from the public thoroughfare.

3. The Respondents agree to remove the sign with the term "Vegas World" within two (2) weeks from the date of this order. Respondents further agree to cease and desist from using the term "Vegas World" on any of its signs visible from the public thoroughfare.

4. The Respondents agree to pay a fine of $2,000 for the advertising violations to the Petitioner within thirty (30) days from the date of this Order.

5. This settlement is deemed and found to be a compromise of a settled and disputed claim, and is not deemed or found to be a violation of the Video Game Machines Act.

I find the above settlement to be fair and equitable, approve such settlement, and hereby Order its adoption.
