A. It is unlawful for any person to manage, operate, or profit from any unlawful amusement game or concession.

B. As used in this Section, "unlawful amusement game or concession" includes the following:

1. Any amusement concession or game in which any physical limitations affecting the degree of skill necessary to win the amusement concession or game are not readily visible to the player, unless notice disclosing such physical limitations is displayed continuously and conspicuously at the location where the amusement concession or game is played, so as to be readily visible to patrons and contestants.

2. Any amusement concession or game where winning depends upon the patron or contestant's ability to throw or project an object, unless all such objects available for use by any single patron or contestant are uniform in size and weight.

3. Any amusement concession or game in which the ability of the patron or contestant to win depends upon throwing or projecting of an object, unless there exists an unobstructed air space of at least 18 inches in height above the highest point of any surface, object, or place upon which that object must land to win the amusement concession or game.

4. Any amusement concession or game in which any target, which must be struck, hit, overturned, broken, or passed through is tilted or inclined in any manner so as to give any advantage to the manager or operator.

5. Any amusement concession or game in which any material has been placed on any target so as to give any advantage to the manager or operator.

6. Any amusement concession or game that utilizes any device, other than the target and the objects to be thrown or projected at that target, which increases or decreases the opportunity of any patron or contestant to win the amusement concession or game.

7. Any amusement concession or game in which the patron or contestant is required to shoot a firearm, air gun, pellet gun, BB gun, or similar device at a target in order to win the amusement concession or game, unless all of the ammunition used in such devices is uniform in type, size, and weight, and the devices are physically attached or controlled to ensure that they can only be pointed toward the target area at all times.

8. Any amusement concession or game in which, as a condition of winning the amusement concession or game, a part or all of a target must be destroyed, unless the patron or contestant is permitted, at his or her request, to inspect the target at any time(s) after he or she has paid to play and has concluded such contest but before he or she has left the amusement concession or game location.
