Default pinball is illegal in sc

was reading an article about a town in cali that has made it illegal to smoke in your own house or apartment if you have a common wall with a neighbor and I came across this absurdity. It is illegal for a minor to play pinball in sc.And this is not some antiquated law either it took effect in 2009. this was put in on the act about minors in pool halls. But that has qualifications and allowances not pinball though.
Quote:
South Carolina Code 63-19-2430. Playing pinball
It is unlawful for a minor under the age of eighteen to play a pinball machine.

Legislative history
2008 Act No. 361, Section 2.

I'm reporting Chuck E Cheese in Florence. When the police confiscate their Elvis pinball machine, I'll buy it cheap at the auction. That baby will be mine!



Seriously though, pinball illegal? That is so dumb.

Pinball machines were classified as a gambling device I believe and many places made cash payouts based on your score.

The old BINGO pinball machines were great! You could gamble for quite a while on a roll of nickels.

SECTION 63-19-2420. Loitering in a billiard room.

It is unlawful for a person under eighteen years of age to loiter in a billiard or pocket billiard room or to play billiards or pocket billiards in a billiard room unless accompanied by the person's parent or guardian or with the written consent of the person's parent or guardian. A person violating this section or Chapter 11 of Title 52 or any billiard room proprietor or manager who permits such a violation must be fined not less than ten nor more than one hundred dollars or be imprisoned not less than two days nor more than thirty days. In the event the keeper of a billiard room is of the opinion that a person desiring admission is under the age of eighteen years the keeper shall require the person to certify the person's age in writing. It is a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of not less than twenty-five nor more than one hundred dollars, for a minor to make a false certificate of age or use a forged permit from the minor's parent or guardian
all this in regards to pool halls but pinball is short and sweet and to the point. no pinball.

The pinball machine won't be illegal, just the persons playing it under the age of 18. So if you called the cops, they would sit there and give citations to all the kids that stuck a quarter in.

Seriously though, any arcades still around should be made aware of this, or have arcade exceptions made or something. I flat out don't understand the point. The only pinball machines I come in contact with (at the Red Door Tavern on State Street in West Columbia) the only potential for a 'pay out' is to get lucky and get a 'match' or score high enough to win a free game. I don't know why kids couldn't play them?

There is a difference between pinball and "Flipper" pinball.

Gambling pinball doesn't have, or didn't used to have flippers. I had an uncle that was a "Pinball Wizard" and he taught me a few tricks of the trade.
