Why Chuck E. Cheese may need a gaming license.
by Andrew Kiraly | posted May 12, 2011
No wonder I could never win generous curling loops of scrip tickets at Chuck E. Cheese -- turns out I was gambling the whole time, not actually playing skeeball! An angry mom has filed a lawsuit against the pizza-purveying mouse, alleging some games there are games of chance -- and thus count as gambling.
According to the lawsuit, “many games found at Chuck E. Cheese’s’s restaurants are illegal gambling devices that require little or no skill and are predominantly games of chance, much like a roulette wheel. With rare exception (none of which exist here), gambling is illegal in California.” The suit goes on to state that Keller “seeks restitution from CEC and an injunction prohibiting it from offering these devices to its customers in the future.”
