Any business that offers games which cost money to play must apply for a permit and pay a fee. A permit is required whether or not the business owns the devices. Permits expire on December 31 and must be renewed each year.
The City’s social game permit program regulates the operators of social games, restricting location, age, dollar amount of play, and other rules to protect the public peace, safety and morals. A person or business that wants to operate a social game must have a permit from the City.
