     23-5-160. Shaking dice for a drink or music or in a shake-a-day game. (1) It is legal for a customer in an establishment licensed for the sale of alcoholic beverages to be consumed on the premises to:
     (a) shake or choose one or more dice, alone or with an owner or employee of the establishment, to determine whether the customer or the establishment shall pay for the customer's drink or to determine whether the customer or the establishment shall immediately pay a predetermined amount of money, not to exceed $2, for music from a jukebox in the establishment; or
     (b) play the dice game commonly known as shake-a-day, in which a customer may once each day pay an amount of money predetermined by the establishment, but not more than 50 cents, and shake a number of dice predetermined by the establishment in an attempt to roll certain combinations simulating poker hands predetermined by the establishment. If one of the combinations is rolled, the customer may win merchandise or a portion or all of the money paid to play the game since the last winning combination was rolled. The establishment may, before a game begins, limit the amount that will be won and use the remaining money played on that game to start the pot for the next game, thus enhancing the incentive to play the next game in the early stages of the next game. All money paid to play games must be paid out as winnings. An establishment may offer to the public more than one shake-a-day game at any given time.
     (2) Nothing in this section authorizes the dice game of craps or any other dice game not specifically described in this section.
