A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to the mandatory revocation of an amusement arcade or gaming cafe license for offering cash prizes or engaging in other unlawful gambling activity.
 
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
      Section 1. Paragraph three of subdivision c of section 20-214 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as amended by local law number 58 for the year 2005, is amended to read as follows:
      (3)  Where the amusement arcade or gaming cafe owner or the amusement operator in the amusement arcade or gaming cafe offers free games or prizes, signs shall be required to set out with clarity the number of wins or the score required to obtain a free game or prize; provided, however, that no amusement arcade or gaming cafe owner or amusement operator in the amusement arcade or gaming cafe shall offer money prizes or awards or such other prizes or awards which are redeemable or may be redeemed in money at the amusement arcade or gaming cafe or any other establishment, or which may be used as a credit or allowance or which may be exchanged for any money, credit or allowance.  Any license to operate an amusement arcade or gaming cafe issued pursuant to subdivision c of section 20-212 of this subchapter shall be revoked, after notice and hearing, where (i) the department finds that the owner or operator of such arcade or cafe or an employee thereof has permitted on the premises of such arcade or cafe the offering or distribution of such prizes or awards; or (ii) the owner or operator of such arcade or cafe, or an employee thereof, is convicted of violating any section of article 225 of the penal law or of a lesser offense in satisfaction of a criminal charge pursuant to article 225 of the penal law, for conduct occurring on the premises of such arcade or cafe.  
      ยง 2. This local law shall take effect one hundred twenty days after its enactment into law; provided, however, that the commissioner shall take any actions necessary prior to such effective date for the implementation of this local law including, but not limited to, the adoption of any necessary rules.
