Opinion asking do the 2013 amendments to Sections 61-2-180 and 61-4-580 of the South Carolina Code of Laws mean; any place licensed to serve alcohol may now have bingo, casino nights and poker nights as long as they are for a charitable purpose? And, may holders of beer and wine permits have game promotions including contests, games of chance, or sweepstakes in which the elements of chance and prize are present and which comply with specified requirements contained in subsection 3 [of S.C. Code Section 61-4-580] as long as the game or sweepstakes does not use a “poker machine?”

Requested by: The Honorable Barry J. Barnette, Solicitor, Seventh Judicial Circuit
