CONSENT ORDER

This matter was initiated by the Petitioner on December 5, 1995, when revenue officers of the South Carolina Department of Revenue ("Department") conducted an inspection of the video gaming location at 801 South Kings Highway, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. They observed signs outside the location stating "Vegas Place" and "Video Games." A Final Determination was issued charging each of the Respondents with a violation of S.C. Code Ann. Section 12-21-2804(B) (Supp. 1997), advertising for the playing of video poker. The Department imposed a $500.00 monetary penalty as to each Respondent. Subsequently, Respondents requested a contested case hearing on this matter.

Prior to the hearing scheduled for June 4, 1998, the parties resolved this matter. That agreement is incorporated into this order.

The parties agree as follows:

1. Respondents agree to remove the word "Vegas" from all signs at their video gaming location. They further agree not to use the word "Vegas" in any advertisements whatsoever, to include the yellow pages, signs outside their establishment, etc. They further agree not to advertise in any manner for the playing of video poker. Respondents further agree to remit to the Department a monetary penalty in the amount of $500.00, no later than 5:00 p.m. on May 29, 1998.

2. In consideration of the above, the Department agrees to waive the remaining monetary penalties sought for this violation.

3. The parties understand that the terms as set forth above constitute the full and final disposition of this matter.

I find the above settlement to be fair and equitable, approve such settlement, and hereby Order its adoption. This Court retains continuing jurisdiction to enforce this Order. As the parties no longer require a hearing on this matter I also Order this matter Dismissed with Prejudice.

AND IT IS SO ORDERED.
