Mega Stacker by Lai Games

NEW PRIZE CAPSULE VERSION OF MEGA STACKER

August 12th, 2011 – LAI Games has created a new prize capsule dispensing version of Mega Stacker for locations without ticket redemption.

LAI Games has responded to the strong demand from operators that want the great revenue earning power of Mega Stacker but don’t have a redemption counter. Unlike the original version of the game, which features major prizes vended from cabinets and tickets vended for the minor prizes, the new version replaces tickets with prize capsules (either 2” or 3”).

With both options now available Mega Stacker is suitable for a much wide range of entertainment locations. With earnings of over $3,000 a week and a $2 or $3 vend price Mega Stacker is proving to be a huge success.

About the new Prize Capsule version of Mega Stacker

Mega Stacker combines both major prize merchandisers and a minor prize capsule dispenser into a single unit. Players reaching the Minor Prize level of the game receive a prize capsule, while those who reach the Major Prize level get to choose a prize from one of five lighted window compartments. Extensive operator-selectable settings, including prize payout, enable operators to maximize profits at many different major prize price points.

At over 8 feet wide and nearly 10 feet tall, Mega Stacker creates a striking presence and is the ideal centre piece for large game rooms. The mega-size LED playfield, dynamic cabinet lighting and pulse-pounding sound effects really pull in the crowds.

ICE Debuts Shell Game Addition To Price Is Right Redemption Lineup

August 9, 2011

Ice The Price is Right Shell Game

Innovative Concepts in Entertainment said it is shipping the latest in its growing line of officially licensed “The Price is Right” redemption games. The new model, The Price Is Right Shell Game, incorporates the play principle of the ancient thimblerig or shell game — but an honest one.

The player surmounts two challenges to win a prize. The first is to keep track of a diamond that is displayed on the game’s 32″ horizontal LCD monitor that moves swiftly from one inverted cup to another (five in all), and when the shuttling stops, to choose the cup hiding the jewel.

Success with that first step allows the patron to advance to the Showcase Showdown: a video graphics depiction of the trademark big wheel spinning and a chance to win the super bonus.

The Price Is Right Shell Game measures 95″ high (with eye-catching marquee publicizing the Super Bonus) and features a space-saving footprint that is only 35″ wide x 32″ deep. Options include a stool for sitdown play, a bill validator and an interface for a card reader. It runs on 110V., 6A. or 220V., 3A. power. The game is designed for economical packing in standard containers for international sales: 20- and 40-ft. containers will accommodate 12 and 24 Shell Games, respectively.

Kalkomat Boxer Fire – Great Quality – Great Price – All Boxers are not created equal:::

July 15, 2011

Coin Operated Boxer

The Kalkomat Fire Boxer is the low cost option from the leading boxer manufacturer “KALKOMAT“. There are many boxer options on the internet, but they are not all created equal. At Birmingham Vending, we have tried all of the major brands that are available, with some very disappointing results. If you are interested in a boxer, reliability is the key factor to making this a good investment for you business. The boxing machine will make a great deal of money on location. The lost revenue from machine breakdowns can be significant.

Boxer Fire is a punching bag style boxing machine with modern electronics, that is extremely silent, and produces both: fun and amazing profits in different locations like pubs, bars, clubs etc. Design of this machine is flashy, compact and durable. The boxing machine is covered with eye-catching stickers. This boxer machine is equipped with an extra secured cash box. The boxing game is available in various languages, with many different voice messages and music soundtracks.

Technical data of Boxer Fire and more pictures below.

Lai SnapShot Photo Booth – Great for Party Rentals.

July 13, 2011

LAI Snapshot Photo Booth

LAI’s Snapshot photo booth, while a clear winner in traditional coin-op locations, was also designed to be perfect for party and event rental. This well-established, multi-billion dollar industry is a huge and largely untapped market for portable photo booths with event rental features. 30% of LAI’s total Snapshot sales and 1/3rd of Snapshot sales at the IAAPA expo last November were to party rental companies. They are on the lookout for new entertainment options for their customers’ birthday parties, mitzvahs, graduations, and other special events. Photo booths and other portable amusement games make a great addition to their existing lineup of inflatables, climbing walls, etc.

LAI has attended many party rental conventions, such as The Special Event and Partyfest, and Snapshot is always a huge hit. We also held an Open House for the 80+ party rental companies in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, with great results.

Earnings
Party rental Snapshot owners report by far the fastest and best ROI of any operators. With Snapshot rental rates from $750 – $1000 per event, and the extremely low cost of consumables, they can easily make back their investment within 3 months of purchase.

New Snapshot Features
In addition to the extensive party rental features, Snapshot now has email and Facebook capability! Guests can email 2 of their photos to the person of their choice, or upload them to their Facebook page.

“The Snapshot is the perfect addition to my party rental business. I rent it for $800 per event, and the ROI is incredible. My guests always have a great time with Snapshot.”

-Barry LeFlore, Owner,
Texas Sumo Party Rentals

Party Rental Features

Two ways to charge guests – by the photo or by the hour.
All photos stored on a USB drive, and can be presented to party host.
Lightweight and easy to transport.
Small footprint: under 2 square feet
