Key Takeaways

  1. Understand Player Types: There are four critical arcade player types: impulse players, traders, savers, and super savers. Each type has unique behaviors and motivations, influencing how they play games and select prizes.
  2. Importance of Merchandising: The way products are displayed significantly impacts customer engagement and satisfaction, akin to a retail experience.
  3. Strategic Prize Selection: Approximately 60% of redemptions come from items appealing to impulse players and traders, while larger, high-ticket prizes attract savers and super savers.
  4. Create Social Experiences: Teenagers and young adults often treat arcade visits as social events. These frequent visitors not only contribute to higher revenue through repeat visits but also enhance the arcade’s community atmosphere by bringing friends along.
