Dave and Busters Announces the “Extreme Speed Sweepstakes”

June 9, 2010

Arcade/restaurant chain Dave and Busters has announced a new sweepstakes which can land you free D&B Power Card or even a chance to win a “three-day, two-night trip for two to either the NASCAR AAA Texas 500 or the Red Bull Motocross of Nations!” Even if you don’t care for the trip, the chance to win a Power Card with a value between $10-$250 on a daily basis seems like a good reason to try it out, assuming that there is a D&B in your area. It’s also good to see one of the few well-known arcade chains running something like this as it can always help with the messaging behind the viability of arcade games in today’s world.

Some prizes to expect for Silver Strike Bowling 2009

May 10, 2008

(Click on image to enlarge)

We have mentioned Silver Strike Bowling 2009 a few times recently, as Incredible Technologies has been making a large effort to make the game attractive with the number of prizes that they are offering via contests with the game. I received a short list of some new items they are offering with the game, in addition to the $100,000 national championship – if you don’t get that you could end up winning a $10,000 Home Depot gift card or a brand new Jeep Wrangler. The more national tournaments like this with big money and big prizes (“I love it!”) are the sort of things we need to see with our arcade games.

Incredible Technologies gearing up for their largest coin-op sweepstakes ever

April 9, 2008

One aspect about coin-op game creator Incredible Technologies that I have always liked are the sweepstakes that they run with their various games, from Golden Tee to Silver Strike Bowling and even to Bags. Probably the best part about the giveaways is that they aren’t forgettable thanks to some of the great prizes they give to players in addition to fairly large cash prizes that are given out throughout the sweepstakes. For this reason I would like an IT game in my arcade – even though they focus more on the bar scene I think that it works for regular arcade operators as well. The sweepstakes give something for players to look forward to and talk about when away from the arcade.

Starting next week, Incredible Technologies will launch their largest sweepstakes ever, in accordance with the release of the new Silver Strike Bowling 2009. They will also be re-launching the ITs website that will offer new features for operators. Here is a video showing off two winners that got brand new Harley Davidson’s from the last sweepstakes and stay tuned as we find out more.

Silver Strike Bowling Sweepstakes video

February 16, 2008

I really have to hand it to Incredible Technologies – since not every arcade or bar can be relied on to hold arcade game competitions, they’ve taken it upon themselves to run some great sweepstakes that drums up interest in both arcade games as well as IT’s own offerings. Now it’s true that they are not the only ones  doing this – Raw Thrills’/Play Mechanix/Betson has done some pretty high profile competitions for Big Buck Hunter that we’ve reported about in the past, it seems that the difference between the two companies is in the frequency of the competitions. Either way I don’t believe it matters who is doing it as long as any company takes the initiative to market their game in this manner, which highlights the strengths of the arcade social scene. Here is a video from  user SilverStrikeBowling that highlights a recent Silver Strike bowling sweepstake where the winner got tickets to the Super Bowl. That’s probably the best thing I’ve seen out of these competitions – they give away good prizes and not throw away crap. I should also point out our recent news of Silver Strike Bowling 2009 where IT promises even more cash prizes along some more big stuff.
