The person on whose premises is located an amusement device shall not permit any intoxicated person or a person under 18 years of age to operate such device, except a coin-operated musical device.
No person shall affix to an amusement device required to be licensed hereunder a counterfeit registration symbol or transfer a registration symbol from one amusement device to another without having paid the transfer fee required under § 243-4.
