JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Local amusement centers with games where children can win coupons and exchange them for merchandise are technically now breaking the law.
Large arcades like Dave and Buster's are granted an exemption, but smaller businesses must operate at least 50 coin-operated machines to comply with the law.
One arcade owner who doesn't want to be identified because he believes he is breaking the law told Action News, "I don't think anybody realized that until the spotlight went on the law and how it was interpreted."
Lawmakers say amusement centers were not the target of the new legislation.
Without complaints from the public, law enforcement officials consider these businesses a low priority.
