(a) Participates in the earnings of or for gain operates or permits the operation of a gambling place; orA person in violation of these state laws may be required to forfeit not more than $500 if 1 gaming machine was in use.. If the violation involves 2 video gambling machines, the forfeiture is $1000, for operating 3 machines the forfeited sum would be not more than $1,000. For 3 machines it is $1500, for 4 it is $2000, and for 5 machines it is $2500. As far as other establishments offering poker games and other gambling devices,such as convenience stores and gas stations, local law enforcement agencies have jurisdiction. It would then be up to the District Attorney to bring about charges and prosecute the cases. Local law doesn't differ. According Kenosha's local ordinance on gambling - 11.04 GAMBLING

A. Forbidden. No person shall keep any gambling resort, or keep or use any article or device for gambling purposes, or permit any person to gamble, bet or play for money or gain, with or by means of any such article or device, in any room or place under his control; nor shall any person gamble, bet or play for money or gain with or by means of any such article or device.We have talked about this many times after noticing poker machines spring up in local gas stations. This interest was heightened when a newspaper from another city discussed how some of their alderpersons were concerned about the increase in gambling, and were pushing for a crack down. We're not sure that this is a high priority, or if this ordinance is enforced often in Kenosha, but, an ordinance is in place for a reason. We have to wonder why new ordinances such as the new smoking ban would even be proposed if compliance with existing laws are being ignored.
