TITLE 27 - Louisiana Gaming Control
RS 27:421 - Temporary placement of twenty-five video draw poker devices
§421. Temporary placement of twenty-five video draw poker devices
A. Any person applying for a truck stop facility license must meet all requirements provided by this Chapter prior to licensing. Upon a determination by the board that a truck stop facility meets the licensing and amenity requirements provided for by this Chapter, up to twenty-five video draw poker devices shall be temporarily placed at that facility without the requirement that the facility meet the fuel sale requirements as provided for in R.S. 27:416(C) for three calendar months. At the end of the first three calendar months of fuel sales, the number of video draw poker devices placed at the qualified truck stop facility shall be based on the average monthly fuel sales. Monthly fuel sales shall be calculated quarterly, using four sets of three calendar months, for the first year. For each calendar year thereafter, the number of video draw poker devices placed at the qualified truck stop facility shall be based upon the average fuel sales calculated annually as provided for in this Subsection.
B. If after one year a qualified truck stop facility is licensed and meets all fuel sale requirements to operate a certain number of devices, and then the truck stop facility becomes unable to meet fuel sale requirements in order to operate the same number of devices for reasons of force majeure or due to other noncommercial circumstances, such as road or other governmental construction projects contiguous to, or otherwise affecting the fuel sales of the qualified truck stop facility as determined by the division, the facility shall continue to be authorized to place and operate the same number of devices as operated prior to the interruption in the fuel sales. Upon resolution of the reasons causing the reduction in fuel sales, the division shall use the next three months of monthly fuel sales reports to determine the number of devices authorized to be placed and operated at the facility.
