Redemption & FEC Report Advertiser Renewals for 2018 Hit 97%
We must be doing something right!!!
I want to personally thank our current family of 85 Advertisers in TRR-FEC for their continued support (more than double since 2015). The renewal rate for 2018 is 97%. I also try my best to include as many of the linked advertiser banners in my Frank ‘the Crank’ Blog articles and to keep the banners, skyscrapers, and buttons updated.
“Inclusion in the Redemption & FEC Report has had a positive impact on Andamiro products and has helped strengthen the Andamiro brand in the redemption category. In particular, the newsletter’s reporting on Andamiro’s SpongeBob Pineapple Arcade — both praise and honest criticism — has elevated awareness of the company’s first pusher and card attraction. In general, the Redemption Report is professionally edited and illustrated, and comprehensive in its coverage. Its grassroots content and presentation of data are unique to the amusements industry. We look forward to the next editions.”
—Nick Montano, Marketing Director, Andamiro USA Corp.
Bowl Expo 2018 saw more exhibitors and more attendees and more importantly, more 1st time attendees. I am not exactly sure how the BPAA attracted more than 400 new attendees – was it having Lou Holtz as the Keynote or the 16 hot topic seminars or the awesome marketing done by BPAA on the networking advantages or the rollout of QubicaAMF’s new game changer ‘Hyper Bowling’? Perhaps all of the above and the fact that bowling centers nationwide and worldwide are upgrading their offerings (especially food) to keep up with the out-of-home leisure competition. BPAA President Nancy Schenk tells it better than I can write it:

’51 Ways to Improve F&B Operations in 90 Minutes’ by Mike Holtzman (President) – Profitable Food Facilities Worldwide
We learned how to buy quality chicken, beef, and fish and save money, improve food quality, improve food physical presentations, raise prices, improve menus, make more bottom line dollars…and get rave customer reviews!!! And all in 90 minutes!!!! http://www.profitablefood.com/
This is a great example of how our industry can use existing technology to combine two competitive games into a great new game!!! The first player to align four balls either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally on the augmented reality vertical LED projected grid wins!!! They say that one or two players can play, but we all know that the more hands a team has the better. Teamwork pays off! This is a game where a player can be ahead and lose at the last second. It looks easier than it really is…and that is what repeat play is all about!!!! Way to go Bay-Tek!!!!

FETCHREV Wants to Increase Your Business
[And they are doing just that with their automated software platform!!!]
FetchRev Launching Self-Signup Platform
“One of the biggest challenges for family entertainment centers today is standing out amongst the competition. You can have the cleanest, fanciest center around, but the reality is that your customers are bombarded with options – and the more options they have, the less likely they are to choose your business. So how do you break through the noise and stop losing customers to countless competitors? With an automated marketing solution like FetchRev, that not only collects customer information, including emails and birthdays, but also monetizes that data to drive more foot traffic and revenue to your door.
Until now, family entertainment centers looking to adopt FetchRev had to schedule a demo and go through manual onboarding. This is no longer, thanks to their new self-signup platform. Available to the public late-July or early-August, new customers will not only be able to get their account setup and launch their first offer in less than 10 minutes from their own laptop, but also start seeing results on their first day using FetchRev.

This is something you and your family-friends should beware of!
Http and Https
What is the difference between http and https?
Time to know this with 32 mil debit cards compromised in India.
The main difference between http:// and https:// is all about keeping your information secure.
If you want to be as smart as Norm on Cheers:
HTTP stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol
The S (big surprise) stands for “Secure”…..
If you visit a Website or web page and look at the address in the web browser it is likely to begin with the following: http://.
This means that the website is talking to your browser using the regular ‘unsecured’ language.
In other words, it is possible for someone to “eavesdrop” on your computer’s conversation with the Website. This is not good.
If you fill out a form on the website, someone might see the information you send to that site.
This is why you must ‘never’ ever enter your credit card number in an Http website!
However, if the web address begins with https://, that means your computer is directly talking to the website in a Secure code that no one can eavesdrop on.
If a website ever asks you to enter your Credit/Debit card Information, you should automatically look to see if the web address begins with *https://*.
If it doesn’t, You should *NEVER* enter sensitive Information….such as a credit/debit card number.
Other Important Related Tips
While checking the name of any website, first look for the domain extension (.com or .org, .co.in, .net, etc.).
The name just before this is the domain name of the website. Example: http://amazon.diwali-festivals.com. The word before .com is “diwali-festivals” (and NOT “amazon”).
So, this webpage does not belong to amazon.com but belongs to “diwali-festivals.com“, which we all haven’t heard of before. Tricky, huh?
You can similarly check for bank fraud websites that are not your bank even though they look just like your bank.
Before your e-banking logins, make sure that the name just before “.com” is the name of your bank.
“Something.icicibank.com” belongs to icici, but icicibank.some1else.com belongs to “some1else”.
Lastly, but very importantly, use a TRUSTED wifi network. *DO NOT USE FREE PUBLIC WIFI*. They are NOT Secure. If in doubt, DON’T! – is the best advice.
Better still, use your own wifi – Your cell phone has a ‘Personal Hotspot’ in Settings – if you can. Hotels, Airports, and ANY public wifi is a NO! NO! – where you intend disclosing your financial info.
(Ray Dachik, Regional Manager/Tech, Alpha-Omega Amusements & Sales) – (Err-7, Err-9, and Err-10) & Update to Token Chute Modification
Err-7 – Rear Elevator Hopper Error
This problem is caused by a serious lack of sufficient coin medals in the rear hopper. I have temporarily reduced the frequency of that error by adding more coins to both of the rear hoppers. The game manual indicates that you need only a handful of coins in each of the rear hoppers and the game will monitor and add more coins as needed. HaHa. This is not happening here and from the grapevine, it appears that this issue is common at each our other sites as well. Anyway, by keeping about 500+ coins in the rear hopper you will get much fewer “Err-7” messages. Hopefully, in the near future, Andomiro will change the programming chip to be a little more generous in automatically adding coins to the rear hopper.
SpongeBob Tilt Bridge Stabilization Modification
I have attached some pictures of the arrangement I used to stabilize the tilt bridge on my Sponge Bob Pineapple Arcade game, which turns out to be infinitely better than the spot-welded steel pin that Andomiro uses.
(Err-9 and Err-10) – Medal Out Bridge Error – front or rear microswitch problem
Problem: The tilt sensors attached to the bridge plate assembly frequently require an adjustment so the metal bridge would trip the sensor lever.
Solution: On one of my routine ‘Err-10’ visits a few days ago I again readjusted the position of the sensor, and then went into test mode and ran a test of the bridge. That is when I discovered that the welded steel pin axle broke off! I initially thought about re-welding the axle pin to the plate but was convinced that was not a great permanent solution. From Day 1 of this game’s arrival, the axle pins for the tilt bridge on each side have been “tilted”. They don’t remain horizontal to the floor. Instead, there is a noticeable downward lean at the tip of the axle of about 15-20 degrees. As a result, there is a similar tilt to the bridge itself.
Initially, I tried straightening the axle pin on both sides, which was easily done, but the adjustment immediately was undone by just a few turns of the bridge motor.
Staring down at the broken axle pin in my hand, I knew that any arrangement that connected this axle at just one point at the top of the plate would not be an improvement.
Idea: A U-bolt might do the job. I used a 1/4” dia. threaded steel rod and bent it in a square U-bolt pattern with a 2.5” middle and a 2” top leg/axle and a ¾” bottom leg. The long leg serves as the axle of tilt bridge and the short leg is bolted to the vertical plate and keeps the axle steady with absolutely no wiggle.
I re-drilled the hole left by the broken steel pin and drilled another hole for the bottom leg and attached the U-bolt through the plate and secured the bottom leg with a nut.
The top leg, which would serve as the axle, was considerably stiffer than the original pin and could not be deflected downward. This I hoped would be a long-term solution to the ever-shifting positional changes of the tilt sensors. I also discovered that the position of the lower hole I had drilled put the backside of the U-bolt right on top of the mounting screw holes for one of the position sensors. I drilled a second hole so as not to interfere with anything!
That’s it in nutshell. This repair was done yesterday, so the jury is still out as to the longevity and success of this repair. If it goes for several weeks with no problems and an improvement in Err messages involving the tilt bridge, then I will let you know and will probably make the same change on the other side.
Total cost for the repair is $2 tops or less (although I did destroy a couple of drill bits –that plate is mighty hard on bits!) as compared to an OEM replacement plate for $195 which comes with a steel axle pin guaranteed to droop.
I am in the midst of replacing the count hopper motor on 1 side of SpongeBob and decided to use the dismantling opportunity to add a support strap to the PVC pipe I used to replace Andamiro’s OEM metal chute. Below are pictures of the top side and bottom side of the $3 PVC pipe replacement, which also shows the $90 OEM metal chute hovering menacingly nearby –just for comparison. I originally had the PVC pipe resting on the edge of the token count hopper. Now with the addition of this lower strap, the pipe floats above the hopper and makes servicing the hopper easier. It does add about 25 cents to the cost of the repair, but don’t worry I covered it. – Ray
This service bulletin to Andamiro USA’s distributors relates to an upgrade kit now available for SpongeBob Soccer Stars amusement devices. Andamiro USA has begun shipping the upgrade this week to current owners of this Andamiro amusement device. The upgrade resolves a “goal post” sensor issue that may have occurred on games shipped before May 5, 2018. Andamiro USA recommends the installation of this upgrade on SpongeBob Soccer games shipped before this date.
The kit contains the necessary components and instructions for updating SpongeBob Soccer Stars. It includes:
- A program update that modifies sensor and microswitch functions to prevent ball-counting errors.
- Goalpost acrylic and tension spring/washer assemblies. Installation of these parts effectively reduces the impact of the game’s soccer balls.
- A receiving sensor.
- Instructions (four pages) to guide you through the installation. A PDF copy of this document is available upon request.
Please contact our service or parts departments if you have any questions about this upgrade. You can contact us by emailing or calling:
[email protected] or (310) 767-5800 x2
[email protected] or (310) 767-5800 x3
The estimated time required to complete the upgrade installation is between 60 minutes and 90 minutes. We apologize for any inconvenience.

- Introduction to ‘Frank’s Ranks’ – Test Games 4 Spreadsheets & Top 76 Games Rankings
- Top 76 Ranked Revenue Generating Games Combined List June 2018
- Test Games Spreadsheets Covering 4 Alpha-Omega Amusements Test Locations in 4 Sections of the U.S.
- Ranking & Revenues of Top 15 Merchandise Games & Prizes in Each Bay
Here’s the Ticket!
The Top 76 Redemption, Merchandiser, Video, & Novelty Combined List and Test Games Spreadsheets are 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 together, so I know that the data is correct and is not changed in any way.
The purpose of the Lists and Spreadsheets is for you to see where your current games place or rank, divide the game revenues to those of your own games to determine the 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: On 6-27-18 Test Location #1 received an E-Claw 900 2 Pl (Elaut), Funzone Crane (Elaut), and an Elaut Card Kiosk. Games that were removed to make space: Mega Double Crane & Monster Crane. Connect 4 Hoops (Bay-Tek) is expected to be installed mid-July. Connect4Hoops was the hit of Bowl Expo. TRR is looking forward to tracking the revenues of these new cranes for in our August edition.
For this Report – Six (6) New Test Games were Installed that now have at least one complete week:
- Dragon Hunter – Rank #21
- SpongeBob Soccer Star (Updated) – Rank #43
- Squiggle (Updated) – Rank #26
- Crossy Road (Updated) – Rank #45
- Cruis’n Blast SD #3 & #4 – Rank #64 & #76
Revenue Update – As TRR-FEC goes out, WE 6-22-18 shows Virtual Rabbids taking over the #1 Ranking. Knock it Off Rotary moved up to the #8 Ranking from #33 because the Alpha Team found some new sweep motors. Note that for the past 3 years Knock It Off Rotary has been in the Top 5 until 1 or 2 of its 4 player positions were out of order for the past two months.
Virtual Rabbids Virtual Reality Sit Down 2 Pl (LAI) continues to be the hottest new game in the industry and is receiving lots of Buzz. Ranking at #2 overall for its initial 12 weeks is just amazing for a new game! When you consider that Rabbids is the first ‘unattended virtual reality game’, that it doesn’t have any cost of sales, and it is an attraction grabber, Virtual Rabbids is now the focal point of the game zone. In our real world, that would rank it as the #1 Game.
July Update: Virtual Rabbids grossed $5,500 WE 7-6-18 and Ranked #1 by far.
OK. With that said I feel that I should also let you know the other side. Yes, this game is very pricey (like $50,000). Yes, it has a very low throughput per hour. But when you look at its revenues and the people that are waiting in line to play at $5 a pop, the high price tag should not be a concern to the FEC’s that have the game space and traffic to support this game.
The Alpha/AEM Team believes that Virtual Rabbids can be improved with the following constructive criticism:
- New players do not realize that they need to first select which ride they want and that involves using their Headset. Ride selection could be made much easier and faster if there were large buttons near each seat that could be pressed to select their ride.
- The head straps on the VR headsets are too big! The headsets are adjustable with Velcro straps, but even when adjusted to the smallest setting the headsets are still too big for most players. The players are actually tying knots into the straps to make the strap length smaller.
- After the 3rd week we moved the game a little bit more away from the wall and thus were able to install the decorative ‘clouds’ on the sides. Perhaps this will attract more players???? [Yes it did!].
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 May/June 2018
- DC Comics Super Heroes 4 Pl at #1 is a must-have game.
- Virtual Rabbids 2 Pl ranking #2 is the hottest new game. LAI says they are making them as fast as they can to keep up with demand. (See YouTube Video featuring Malcolm Steinberg, Chairman LAI).
- SpongeBob at #4 is a ‘must have’ – ‘must have’ game.
- Mega Triple Crane, Mega Stacker, and Big Choice Crane 2 Pl, all old games, keep surprising us all by ranking in the Top 13 overall.
- Ticket Cranes Rank #8 & #14 (Update WE 6-22-18 Ranked #7 & #9): – Any Games Zone that has 30 games or more needs at least TWO Ticket Cranes, almost all large games zones with 50 or more games should have at least THREE says ‘Frank the Crank’.
- Space Invader Frenzy Ranking #11 is another Top 15 Game that large games zones should have.
- Ring Toss (Coastal) Ranking #9 has shown that it has ‘legs’ as well as great sounds.
- Lane Master 2 Pl – Ranks #17 and has been a steady Top 20 earner since it was installed.
Advice: If you are considering buying a new game and you have waited 12 months now to make a decision (and you do not have a lot of space) and you do not have a Sponge Bob Pineapple Arcade, 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!!!
