Department of Justice Announces End to ‘Operation Choke Point’ Program

Hats off to AMOA (and Emily Dunn, Chair of AMOA Government Relation Committee) and our industry’s lobbyist Dentons for their fabulous advocacy efforts in playing a huge role in the coalition against Operation Choke Point. The Department of Justice (D.O.J.) officially announced that it is ending to Operation Choke Point. AMOA reported, “Earlier last week, a letter was sent by U.S. Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03), along with House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (TX-05), House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (VA-06), and Judiciary Subcommittee Chairmen Tom Marino (PA-10) and Darrell Issa (CA-49), to multiple federal agencies encouraging them to end the program.”  Then the DOJ announced, “All of the department’s bank investigations conducted as part of Operation Chokepoint are now over, the initiative is no longer in effect, and it will not be undertaken again.”

AMOA and its members are now calling upon bank regulators, across the country, to heed the D.O.J.’s guidance and work with legitimate cash businesses to ensure access to banking services.

What this Could Mean?  It took 18 months of hard work to bring this overreach program and its devastating effects to small businesses that handle coins/cash as a normal part of their business transactions to the attention of those people who make/change the laws.  For the time being all is well in coin-op land but let’s not take our eyes off the road.  It costs money for banks to handle cash and many made it clear that they will use any loophole or overreach to end this practice.  Let’s face it, the country is heading to cashless.  There is even talk of eliminating the $100, $50, and perhaps even the $20 bill.  My believe is that this would cause mayhem in the economy as perhaps 1/3rd of the money transactions in the US involve cash.  Perhaps the push to cashless will take some more time, but even today, for our industry, most of our customers carry very little cash. That additional steps to go and find an ATM machine, get cash, and then go find one of our bill changers or kiosks to get coins, tokens, or a debit card is a lot of wasted time and energy.  Paying with your cell phone is much easier and looks like the way almost all transactions out of home will take place in the very near future.  Is our industry ready?

AAMA Fair Play Pledge Will Begin Enforcement September 2018

AAMA has released its 4-page Fair Play Pledge (FFP) whereby all AMOA members will pledge that all games they manufacturer, distribute, sell directly or operate in the U.S. ‘allows a fair chance of winning with every game played.’

The criteria:

  • An opportunity exists that allows for players to win by the application of skill such that the player will have sufficient time to identify, recognize and react with every game play.
  • A player can improve with practice and experience.
  • The player’s input controls the outcome of the game.

What this Could Mean? Note that TRR is making the assumption that the FFP applies to redemption and merchandiser games and not video games. We could be in error here as the FFP does say ‘all games’].  This is a good step for our industry as it puts the responsibility on the manufacturers and distributors, and the manufacturers and distributors that operate to produce games that comply with the FFP.  To date, TRR has not come across any official comments from AMOA, or any of their member game operators, many of whom are not AAMA members.  Perhaps this will be forthcoming as there is still more than one year before the FFP begins AAMA enforcement. Besides potential issues with the binding results of the independent testing laboratory and the appeal process, TRR questions what is currently being done with the so called ‘inventory of FPP non-compliant games’?  Are they being sold to game operators who do not yet know if the game is non-compliant or are they being sold outside of the U.S?  Hummm???

 

 

 

New Jersey Passes Law Permitting Bowling Alleys with a Liquor License with 16 Lanes or More to Have 40 or More Licensed Redemption & Merchandise Games (A621/S-2328)

First came the Dave & Busters new regulation that permitted locations that had a liquor license and a minimum of 20,000 sq. ft. to have a minimum of 100 licensed redemption and merchandisers.  Second came the uproar from bowling centers that had a liquor license and lanes but did not have space or need for a minimum of 100 games…

And now on July 21, 2018 Governor Christie signs this new law that includes more locations.

An Act permitting bowling alleys, including alleys licensed to sell alcoholic beverages, to conduct amusement games and supplementing P.L.1959, c.108 (C.5:8-78 et seq.).

Be It Enacted by the Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey:

  1. The operator of a bowling alley 1located anywhere in this State1, including a bowling alley for which a plenary retail consumption license as defined in R.S.33:1-12 has been issued 1, whose premises include no less than 16 United States Bowling Congress (USBS) sanctioned bowling lanes and no less than 40 amusement games,1 shall be eligible to be issued for that premises an amusement game license 1[,]1 pursuant to P.L.1959, c.109 (C.5:8-100 et seq.), provided that 1[the premises includes at least 10 United States Bowling Congress (USBC) sanctioned bowling lanes, at least 40 amusement games, and meets]1 all other requirements for licensure to conduct amusement games 1are met1.

1In any bowling alley that has been issued an amusement game license: not more than 50 percent of the amusement games shall be games that allow a player to attempt to win merchandise by manipulating a mechanical claw or crane; and a redemption center at which players may exchange tickets they have won for prizes shall be open at all times that the facility is open to the public.1

Introduction to ‘Frank’s Ranks’-the Quadfecta of Spreadsheets

redemption tickets

Here’s the Ticket!

The Top 80 Redemption, Merchandiser, Video, & Novelty Test Games Spreadsheet and Combined List (that is how many games were in Test Location #1 in August) is put together from actual collections from games owned and operated by Alpha-Omega Amusements at FOUR of our contracted revenue-share centers in different areas of the U.S. The data is exactly as it is recorded by our staff and the FEC’s, so I know that the data is correct and is not changed in any way.

The purpose of the Lists is for you to see where your current games place or rank, divide the game revenues so they ratio to your game revenues, and check out where other games that you do not have might rank in your facility. It is also easy to pick out trends and stay on top of your ‘game’.

Update:  Air Hockey Tables Research and Triotech XD Dark Ride 8 Pl Revenue Results

The AEM Team researched air hockey models and results show that the Gold Flare Elite (Gold Standard Games/Shelti) is #1.

 

 

Revenue Results for TrioTech XD Dark Ride 8 Player:

  • Location A (USA): 36,922 Riders @ $6/ride = $221,532 Gross Revenue
  • Location B (Europe): 43,501 Riders @ $6/ride = $261,006 Gross Revenue

Hottest New Games – Thumbs Up 

The AEM/Alpha/AlphaBET 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 July/August 2017- It is pretty difficult for a new game to break into the Top 10 as this ‘Elite’ group has remained pretty much the same over the past 2 years, but 2017 has shown four major exceptions.  See if you can pick them out:

 

  • Wizard of Oz 6 Pl retains its #1 Ranking as it proudly states, ‘I’m here to stay #1!’
  • Monster Drop Extreme remains at #2 where it has been for almost every week over the past few years.
  • DC Super Heroes retains the #3 Ranking and still is the leading contender for ‘Game of the Year’.
  • Knock It Off Rotary 4 Pl (prototype designed by Frank ‘the Crank’ with Elaut 20 years ago as an improvement on Elaut’s old Fantasy Island 4 player rotary) locks in at #4 and now has been in the Top 4 for the past 3 years since it was loaded with rolls of tickets pushed up in the middle to form a cone shape. Over the past years, several companies have copied this concept with great success.
  • Ticket Time Crane 2 Pl continues to stay in the Top 5 and Ranked #5 for August. Note that it has to compete with its little brother Ticket Time 1 Pl that ranks #12.  My take is that if little brother were not there, Ticket Time Crane 2 Pl would move up in the rankings to #4 or even #3.  Wow!!!  Note that it was the Alpha/AEM Team that began using ticket bundles in a modified Coast to Coast Candy Crane 5 years ago that was the ‘start’ of the ticket crane phenomenon using a hit frequency of 1:3 or 1:4.  Today there are more than 15 companies making ticket cranes.
  • Space Invader Frenzy Ranks #8 for August and stays in the Top 10 since it arrived just after IAAPA 2016.
  • ICE Man’s rounds out the Top 10 at #10, making it a contender for ‘Game of the Year 2017.
  • Bean Bag Toss gets #13 Ranking and continues to generate high revenues, making it a contender for ‘Game of the Year – Honorable Mention’.
  • SpongeBob Pineapple Arcade gets a #15 Ranking at Test Location #1 and remembers it is only a 2 Player that has to run against some much larger and taller workhorses.
  • Bean Bag Toss gets #13 Ranking and continues to generate high revenues.
  • Jelly Labs Minions just arrived and ranked #19, a very good showing for a new game that the Alpha/AEM Team is still tweaking.

Despicable Me Jelly Lab Minion (Andamiro)

Hint:  The answers are DC Super Heroes, Space Invader Frenzy, ICE Man, and Bean Bag Toss.  These are games you should not miss out on.

Advice:  If you are considering buying a new game and you have waited 6 months to make a decision (and you do not have a lot of space) and you do not have a DC Comics or a Sponge Bob, 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 12 months as I do not see any sane person trading one in any time soon!!!

Other New Test Games that recently arrived at Test Locations

  • Luigi’s Mansion (Sega) – #2 Ranking Video Game in Test Location-Seasonal Location.
  • Walking Dead Environmental also doing well.
  • Black Hole Merchandiser – Received #8 Merchandiser Ranking for August
  • Bop 2 Win (Family Fun)
  • Prize Party 4 Pl (Sealy) – Doing very well.
  • Viking Hammer (Family Fun)
