Quoted from AndHart120:
As cool as it is to play pins for free I also believe this is really going to cause them to break/get real dirty fast. I'd rather pay for games in good shape (like Logans) than play bad ones for free. I actually was just at Logan's an hour or so before stopping by Lakeview and the difference between the condition of the games was pretty big. Logans games were real popular when I was there so the free play bars might be losing out not charging anything.
I agree but they seem to be totally different models. Coins and constant coin jams can be a PITA also so they seem to focus on making money from booze and food sales with the idea that the free play games keep the frat boys there longer?
