Top 80 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 80 Redemption, Merchandiser, Video, & Novelty Games Combined List (that is how many games were in Test Location #1 in June) 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, 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.

Hottest Games. The AEM/Alpha Team Gives a Thumbs Up to the Following New Test Games and Old Work Horses Based on Their Revenues During the Month of June 2016:

  • Ghost busters game

    The only new game that is currently in the Top 10 Ranking

    Wizard of Oz 6 Pl Pusher (Elaut) Ranking #1 Combined-In a class by itself.

  • Knock It Off Rotary 4 Pl Ranking #2 Combined and still the #1 Merchandiser of all time. Was Prototype of Tower of Tickets (Elaut/Bay-Tek).
  • Monster Drop Extreme (Benchmark) Ranking #3 Combined.
  • Big Bass Wheel Dlx. Linked (Bay-Tek) Actually Ranking #3 Combined (when two units’ revenues are added together like it was a 2 player).
  • Mega Stacker (LAI) Ranking #4 Combined, #2 Merchandiser.
  • Mega Triple Crane (Elaut) Ranking #8 Combined, #3 Merchandiser.
  • Ghostbusters (ICE) Ranking #9 Combined. Newest Test Game in Top 10!
  • Fishbowl Frenzy Linked (Team Play) Actually Ranking #5 (when two units’ revenues are added together).
  • Ticket Monster (Bay-Tek) Ranking #7 Combined.
  • Ticket Candy Crane- Prototype of Tickets! Tickets! Tickets! (Coast to Coast/Alpha-Omega Sales) Ranking #10 Combined, #4 Merchandiser.
  • Pirates Hook 4 Pl (UNIS) Ranking #11 Combined.
  • Angry Birds (ICE) Ranking #12 Combined. It has moved up because the new movie is driving game play.
  • Ticket Time Crane (Smart Industries) Ranked #1 Merchandiser in our Southern State Test Location (less ticket bundle game competitors), but make no doubt this is a great ticket crane—Thank you Clarence Maab for inventing it!!!

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!

Mighty Mini Rotary (Children).  How many of our TRR readers have a Mighty Mini that earns $845 for a peak week and $300+ 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 %.
