§407. Games without minimum wager; Orleans excepted

            A. Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, video draw poker devices in any facility licensed pursuant to this Chapter, in any parish other than Orleans, may schedule games with no minimum wager. A video draw poker device may accept ticket vouchers or coins in the amount of the minimum wager offered by that device. Video draw poker devices may accept ticket vouchers or coins or currency of denominations of multiples of the minimum wager but shall provide one game for each amount of the minimum wager deposited in that video draw poker device. The provisions of this Subsection shall not be construed to affect the limitations on the amount of money played and the limitation on the value of prizes established in R.S. 27:410.

            B. Video draw poker devices in any facility licensed pursuant to this Chapter located in Orleans Parish may schedule games with such minimum wager as may be approved by the division, provided it has been determined by the Louisiana Gaming Control Board that permitting such minimum wager in Orleans Parish will not violate any of the terms or provisions of Section 1.3 of the Amended and Renegotiated Casino Operating Contract entered into pursuant to R.S. 27:201 et seq., on October 30, 1998, as amended, effective October 19, 1999, March 29, 2001, March 31, 2001, February 14, 2005, and December 16, 2005. Any change to the minimum wager in violation of this Subsection shall be null and void.
