(3) place individual bottles, cans, or other single-serving sized receptacles containing beer or wine in a nonpermanent portable container or cooler within ten feet of a door used for ingress or egress from a licensed establishment;
(4) permit gambling or games of chance except game promotions including contests, games of chance, or sweepstakes in which the elements of chance and prize are present and which comply with the following:
(a) the game promotion is conducted or offered in connection with the sale, promotion, or advertisement of a consumer product or service, or to enhance the brand or image of a supplier of consumer products or services;
(b) no purchase payment, entry fee, or proof of purchase is required as a condition of entering the game promotion or receiving a prize;
(c) all materials advertising the game promotion clearly disclose that no purchase or payment is necessary to enter and provide details on the free method of participation; and
(d) this subsection is not an exception or limitation to Section 12-21-2710 or other provisions of the South Carolina Code of Laws in which gambling or games of chance are unlawful and prohibited;
(4)(5) permit lewd, immoral, or improper entertainment, conduct, or practices . This includes including, but is not limited to, entertainment, conduct, or practices where a person is in a state of undress so as to expose the human male or female genitals, pubic area, or buttocks cavity with less than a full opaque covering;
(5)(6) permit any an act, the commission of which tends to create a public nuisance or which constitutes a crime under the laws of this State;
