Here’s the Ticket!
- Ticket Ring Jumbo 45” Rank #1 is by far the Top-Earning Game
- Treasure Dome 4 Pl (UNIS) continues to be the biggest new surprise Ranking #2
- Power Roll is a great game and is showing consistent Top 10 Revenues
- Virtual Rabbids Ranked #8 overall and is the #1 video game
- Storm – You should note rank #17 is overall, and I believe it ranked #2 in video.
- There are 2 Merchandisers (includes plush, cards, tokens, or ticket awards) rank in the Overall Top 10. This shows that players want to win more than just a single prize from a crane or points from a redemption game. COLLECTING IS NOW KING
Hottest New Games – Thumbs Up
The AEM/Alpha Teams Gives a Thumbs Up to the following New Test Games and Old Work Horses (Must Have’s) based on their revenues during the months of January/February 2019
- Ticket Ring Jumbo 45” at #1 and a cost of less than $5,000 is a ‘no brainer’.
- Connect 4 Hoops stays in the Top 12 for all 2019. My take is that this game will be a Work Horse for years to come!!! Another ‘no-brainer’ if you have the ceiling height.
- Treasure Dome 4 Pl is a special game that all FEC’s should take note of.
- Virtual Rabbids 2 Pl remains at Rank #5. Virtual Rabbids is still by far the best video game on the Planet. (See YouTube Video featuring Malcolm Steinberg, Chairman LAI). Virtual Rabbids now has 3 new software games.
Advice: If you are considering buying a new game and you have waited 12 months to make a decision (and you do not have a lot of space) and you do not have a Ticket Ring Jumbo 45”, you should label yourself as a ‘Primo/Prima Procrastinator’. If you are waiting to get one at a low ‘used’ price, you may have to wait another 100 months as I do not see any sane person trading one in any time soon!!!
