Thanks to loud opposition from the attractions industry, Senate Bill 412 failed to advance during the 2019 Nevada State Legislative Session. SB412 would have made it a misdemeanor for a person who operates an amusement arcade or amusement center, which is open to the general public, to allow a person who is under the age of 18 years to operate or play any amusement device which offers some type of reward for winning other than a free play unless the person is accompanied by an adult.

These games are often referred to as redemption games. Redemption games are games of skill, from which the player can obtain a reward which is proportional to their score. Rewards can come in the form of non-cash prizes directly or they can come in the form of tickets that can be redeemed for prizes of varying value. They are long-established amusement games suitable for family leisure environment and are commonplace across the country.

Thank you for voicing your opposition to defeat SB412 by showing your elected officials that the amusement industry provides clean, wholesome and safe entertainment for guests of all ages, while maintaining the highest standards in quality and service.
