Penal Code sections, or of any other law involving illegal gambling, fraud or theft in connection with conducting or sponsoring a bingo game, shall constitute cause for the suspension and/or revocation of the licensee's license.
   D.   The provisions of this § 5.204.150 shall govern over any inconsistent provisions of any other section of this chapter.
