Some times when you run an arcade, the best job in the world in my opinion, you will find that you have some down time. Well when that happens no one wins. It still cost the same in electric to have the games running as it does to have them being played; well why not have a party!
Super Bowl Party
There are almost a million reasons to have one and not one to not. There is always some sporting event running that you can play up for example a Super Bowl party with prizes that match the teams that are playing. Footballs and jerseys are always popular with kids of all ages. I know I love getting to show off my favorite team colors when I am walking down the street and if I have a story like winning it for only a dollar it makes it even better AND if I can add that I watched my team win on the big screen that makes it even better.
Birthday Parties are a great way to fill the arcade
Birthday parties are always a good way to keep the arcade full during the slow times and with the Sacoa playcard system it makes it even better. When we have a party at the arcade we always offer the customer the choice of unlimited play on non-redemption games as a bonus as you can allow the kids to keep busy the entire time of the party and the hours fly by.
Packages are the key to getting the customer to getting the maximum value for their dollar. A nice cake usually is included but it is the games that get them. With the Sacao system you can offer a split of redemption, video, simulation, and other games. The games that give tickets and prizes can be set on the card to give a certain amount of tries per card, but an unlimited amount of video game play.
If you are trying to showcase a game, you can even give unlimited play on just one machine. The system is very versatile and allows easy adjustment. I will be doing an article on just the system very soon. It is very impressive with a very small learning curve.
It is important to remember that birthdays are not just for the young but also the young at heart. Theming is easy to do as well. If someone loves a movie then it is so easy to go out and pick up a few trinkets from that movie and the place is themed at almost no cost out of pocket.
The business that you will receive form just a few well done parties is 7 fold. Plus who does not love a good party.
