THE COINBOX PINBALL PODCAST EPISODE 5

Welcome back! EPISODE 5 is FINALLY here! 

 

Game Performances

  • The Walking Dead-27%
  • Star Trek 22%
  • South Park 18%
  • Que Ball Wizard 13% 
  • Fish Tales- 9%
  • Mustang- 6%
  • Demolition Man 3%
  • Johnny Mnemonic 2%

 

Cue Ball Wizard up but overall sales are down 53% as bowling leagues have ended and spring leagues have yet to start. this is common in our location as they shift into summer leagues.

 

Pinball Leagues

  • Format
  • currently registered: 17
  • How we gather new players
  • PinPortal Software Demo
  • How leagues help the location and operator
  • Food/Drink sales increase coin drop increases because league members play 5 games a week minimum x 17 = average of $70-$80 per week increased coin drop. 

 

Upgrades:

  • LEDs a MUST
  • LED strips are amazing
  • Spotlights are nice but annoying if you don't glue them in place as the bulbs will fall out.
  • Upgraded Speakers a waste 
  • Bill acceptors are SUPER nice but wont really increase your sales at least are our location. Chang Machine trumps bill acceptor by far!
  • Change Machine VERY effective 
  • Toppers seem to help!
  • Shaker Motors are excellent add
