 Volunteer Mark Patton wraps up circuit boards Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at Jackpots in Naples, Fla. The adult arcade pulled it's gaming circuit boards from machines after the Florida Senate passed a companion bill last week to prohibit businesses like hers from giving out gifts cards or other cash prizes, essentially banning storefront gaming centers. Fearing hefty fines and possibly going to jail, owners Karen Kopp and Chris Firlej pulled the plug on their business. They also own the Vegas Expereince in Fort Myers which also resulted in the same. The two businesses are 5 and 7 years old respectively. 'I'm just disappointed or governing body, as a lot of people are,' Firlej said. The two plan to shift their business ventures into a restaurant in the near future, as a result.
