CONSENT ORDER

On November 13, 1997, an agent for the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division observed premises at 1918 Highway 17N., Surfside Beach, South Carolina, containing machines licensed under S.C. Code Ann. § 12-21-2720(A)(3) (Supp. 1997). The Agent alleged that room designated as Golf in the attached sketch contained machines, was open for business, but did not have an employee on the premises. The SLED Agent also reported that Respondents advertised for the playing of machines by placing an advertisement in the Myrtle Beach telephone directory that used the term "casino." Petitioner cited Respondents with administrative violations for violating S.C. Code Ann. § § 12-21-2804(A) and 12-21-2804(B) (Supp. 1997)..

Respondents and Petitioner have reached an agreement on this contested matter. Respondents agree to the revocation of all licenses issued to it under the provisions of S.C. Code Ann. § 12-21-2720(A)(3) (Supp. 1997) which were on the premises of room Golf, 1918 Highway 17N, Surfside Beach, S.C., at the time of the inspection on November 13, 1997, and agrees not to operate on the premises of that room, any machine licensed under S.C. Code Ann. § 12-21-2720(A)(3) (Supp. 1997) for a period of six months from December 1, 1999. Respondents further agree not to advertise for the playing of machines in the yellow pages, and to pay penalties in the amount of $1,000.00 to the South Carolina Department of Revenue within ten days of December 1, 1999, in order to resolve this contested matter between them and the Department.

I find that the agreement of the parties is a satisfactory resolution of the contested matter between the parties, is fair and reasonable, and hereby order its adoption.





IT IS SO ORDERED.
