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

redemption tickets

Here’s the Ticket!

The Top 75 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. Sometimes the rankings show which games you should double up on. It is also easy to pick out trends and stay on top of your ‘game’.

Update as TRR-FEC is uploaded to Earth:

  • Spins Ahoy! 3 Pl (Team Play) was installed at Location 1 on 6-12-19

1st Full Week Spins Ahoy! was the #5 Rank Redemption Game – $2,231 @ 41%. We then increased the difficulty. 2nd Week $1,786 @ 32%.

TRR-FEC will report on more on Spins Ahoy! and others in the August 2019 Edition

June Observations – Peak Week-Throughput Makes Kings!!!

  • 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 #3 – $1,516 @ 20% Payout.
  • Centipede Chaos 3 Pl Ranked #23 – $486 @ 23% and then moved up 6 positions to Rank #17 for WE 6-14-19.
  • Virtual Rabbids Ranked #5 overall and still is the #1 video game.
  • There are 4 Merchandisers in the Top 10 Overall – Ticket Ring Jumbo 45” – E-Claw 2 Pl – Knock It Off Rotary 2 Pl and Ticket Time Crane 1 Pl and 4 more that award cards, tokens, prizes – Wizard of Oz, Treasure Dome, Willy Wonka, & DC Superheroes. That is a total of 8 of the Top 10 Games. It 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
  • Connect4 Hoops Ranked #4 – $1,373 @ 25%.
  • E-Claw 2 Pl is the #1 Ranked Crane Ranking #7 Overall.
  • Spins Ahoy! 3 Pl is a game to keep our eyes on.

 

Biggest Movers and Shakers (WE 6-14-19 grossed 50% more than WE 6-7-19) – We learn a lot about throughput when it gets busier

  • Monster Drop Extreme went from Rank #9 to #2 – Comes through all the time – Gotta have this game!
  • SpongeBob Pineapple Arcade went from Rank #19 to #7 – Another workhorse game you must have.
  • Centipede Chaos 3 Pl went from Rank #23 to #17 – Who said that 3 Player games are not needed in our industry?

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 2019

  • Ticket Ring Jumbo 45” at #1 and a cost of less than $5,000 is a ‘no brainer’.
  • Connect4 Hoops stays in the Top 5 for 9 of the past 10 months. My take is that this game will be a Work Horse for years to come!!! Another ‘no-brainer’ if you have the ceiling height. The Mini model Ranks #3 Overall in another Test Location that has 50 games.
  • Treasure Dome 4 Pl is a special game that all FEC’s should take note of.
  • DC Comics Super Heroes 4 Pl remains in the Top 10 since it was placed into operation and is still a must-have game. If you do not have space or budget for the 4 Pl, there is a 2 Pl so you cannot use ‘no space’ and ‘no budget’ as an excuses for not getting one.
  • 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). Soon we will have 3 new software games.
  • SpongeBob Pineapple Arcade is still a ‘must have’ game. It amazes me that some weeks it jumps to #2 or #3 as new players discover it and just keep playing.

AdviceIf you are considering buying a new game and you have now waited 10 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!!!
