Top 79 Ranked Revenue Generating Games Combined List & Test Games Spreadsheet Covering 4 Test Locations

Introduction to ‘Frank’s Ranks’ – the Trifecta of Spreadsheets

redemption tickets

Here’s the Ticket!

The Top 79 Redemption, Merchandiser, Video, & Novelty Games Combined List 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 List is for you to see where your current games place or rank and check out where other games that you do not have would rank in your facility. It is also easy to pick out trends and stay on top of your game.

TRR’s April 2016 picks for ‘The Top New Games’ are: Baseball Pro game

  1. Ghostbusters 
  2. SpongeBob Pineapple Arcade 
  3. And one or more of these ‘Ticket Merchandisers: Ticket Time, ­­­Tickets! Tickets! Tickets!, Tower of Tickets, Fun Zone

Games ‘the Crank’ liked best at Amusement Expo (not tested yet) are:

Baseball Pro (Andamiro)

[Note – I believe that this game’s width can be decreased by making the field at an angle like Boston’s Fenway Park.]

Crazy Claw (Rocket Amusement)

Timberman (Barron/Magic Play)

UNIS Bandit Express

Ranking & Revenues of 18 Merchandise Games & Prizes in Each Bay

redemption tickets

Here’s the Ticket!

Winning Tickets is still important to our players. Going ‘ticketless’ may be less work but it also equates to less revenue.

Merchandisers is the 2nd highest revenue category in our industry, currently making up 20% of our company’s total revenues and 25% of total revenues in our Test Location #1. A significant amount of the merchandiser revenues come from having ticket bundles as prizes.  Note that we have ‘tickets’ in 8 of the 18 merchandisers. You can imagine how much higher the revenues of the Knock It Off Rotary and Ticket Candy Crane would be if ticket bundles/rolls were not used in the other 6 merchandiser games?  There is a lot of competition and a lot of fun in winning bunches of tickets.

The Return on Investment (ROI) of these merchandisers is through the roof and therefore are our best profit centers. The ROI of our Ticket Candy Crane for 2015 was 7500%.  The ROI of our Knock It Off Rotary for 2015 was 5000%. Both ROI’s are actually much higher, perhaps even double. I used $1000 as the value of the Ticket Candy Crane and it is much closer to $500 as it is a very old Smart Candy Crane that we made some adjustments to.  I used $3000 as the value of our 10+-year-old Knock It Off Rotary and that value is more likely $1000 or less, but be assured that I have no intentions of ever selling it. Both games should go to the Amusement Game Hall of Fame!

Mega Triple Crane-Rank #4 Combined and #2 Merchandiser.  The highest grossing bay is the bay with ticket bundles.  The ticket bundle bay ($1229) was 20%  higher than Treasure Chest Bay ($1058) and 50% higher than the Hoberman Sphere Bay ($808).

Mighty Mini Rotary (Children).  How many of our TRR readers have a Mighty Mini that earns $845 on a peak week and $415 on an average week?  My guess is that a large majority of Mighty Mini’s out there in FECs and on the Street are grossing closer to $50/week and perhaps as high as $75/week. That is what my Mighty Mini’s grossed before we spent the time learning how to best add ticket bundles to the Puffers (65 cents each) and small toy mix (25 cents average cost) so we would have a 15%-20% win %.
