Top 60 Redemption & Merchandising Games Combined & Test Games Spreadsheet Report

Introduction to Top 60 Games Combined List

redemption tickets

Here’s the Ticket!

The Top 60 Redemption & Merchandiser Combined List is put together from actual collections from games owned and operated by Alpha-Omega Amusements at FOUR of our contracted revenue-share locations 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 see 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. Video games are not included but all of them would be at the bottom of the rankings with only Typhoon Lagoon and Jurassic Park ranking in the middle around the 30th position.Games Spreadsheet Report SpongeBob Pineapple Andamiro

Hottest Games the AEM/Alpha Team Gave a Thumbs Up at IAAPA

Pretty easy to do since TRR has been testing them for several weeks – ‘Angry Birds’ (ICE) grabbed the IAAPA Brass Ring Award for Best Game and it is certainly a great game. Other NEW games exhibited that we have recently tested and rank in the Top 20: SpongeBob Pineapple Arcade (Andamiro), Grand Piano Keys (Bay-Tek), Fishbowl Frenzy (Team Play), Ocean Pearl & SpaceBallz (JET), Spin N Win 6′ D (Skeeball); Quik Drop (Bay-Tek); Tickets! Tickets! Tickets! (Coast to Coast & Alpha-Omega Sales), Tower of Tickets (Elaut/Bay-Tek), and Ticket Time Crane (Smart Industries).

Amusement Entertainment Management, LLC, we offer a full range of consulting services, including early-stage feasibility analysis, business plan development, funding assistance, and conceptual design and layout services.

New Games at IAAPA that the AEM/Alpha Team Approved for Testing

TRR has already started testing or will soon be testing: Circus Ball Drop & Golden Empire (Andamiro); Minion Whacker (Adrenaline); Blizzard Blast (JET); Chaos & Sweeper (Benchmark); Wham-O Blast & Ghostbusters (ICE); Sonic Dash (Sega); Ticket Typhoon, Frog Around & The Balloon Game (Coastal), Photo Studio Deluxe (Apple/Face Place); Gold Flare Elite Air Hockey (Gold Standard/Shelti); Fun Zone- 256 Color Changing Crane (Coast to Coast); Luigi’s Mansion Theatre (Sega); Tickle Monsters (IT); and Storm Air Hockey-Curved Playfield (WIK).

Frank ‘the Crank’s January 2016 pick for The Top New Game you must have starting 2016 is: SpongeBob Pineapple Arcade!

This report shows that a second Fishbowl Frenzy (labeled B) was linked to the original Fishbowl Frenzy A. The two linked games also have a bonus jackpot. As you can see below in the Top 60 Games chart, Fishbowl Frenzy B ranked #15 and Fishbowl Frenzy A ranked #16. When their revenues are combined, the total would give the two games the #4 ranking. In the next TRR I will provide detailed revenue information on Fishbowl Frenzy A & B as well as Big Bass Wheel #1 & #2.
