A. When a licensed establishment which requires an alcoholic beverage license as a condition of the receipt of a video draw poker device license is sold or transferred, the video draw poker devices shall be allowed to continue to operate if the new owner applies for a state Class "A" license within fifteen days of purchasing the business, and upon issuance of a state Class "A" license, the new owner applies for a video draw poker license within fifteen days.
B. The video draw poker devices shall be allowed to be continued in operation under the old license until the issuance of a video draw poker license in the name of the owner, until any of the following occur:
(1) A determination by the division that the new applicant is unsuitable.
(2) Denial of the new license application.
(3) The passage of one hundred eighty days from submission of the application to the division. The provisions of this Subsection shall not apply to new owner applicants for a video draw poker license who are licensed at the time of such application; however, if the applicant fails to provide requested information to the division in a timely manner, the devices may be disabled after one hundred eighty days have elapsed.
C. The board shall adopt and promulgate rules to implement this Section.
D. All establishment licensees shall within five days of the change in ownership notify the division in writing, of any facts which indicate that the licensed establishment has had a change in ownership.

The device owner when given notice by certified mail of the change in ownership shall notify the division within five days of receipt of the notice of the change in ownership of the licensed establishment.
