    As Sean has said we have them on 4 of our games at Schwoegler's. I dont personally have a smart phone so I wont ever get to use it, but so far it seems many people like the idea and dont carry cash so it is a convienence for them.

    From my perspective, the #1 call for any game is the coin slots are not taking money. Payrange provides a was to play even if the coin slot is jammed.

    Side benefit is less dealing with dirty coins and hassle of counting and rolling.

    At $50 a game I find it a bit pricey (esp since they already take a cut off each credit), but it will be a nice experiement to see how much it is used.

    the beauty of the payrange thing is that you can still pay with traditional methods.

    It plugs in in-line with the DBV so it does not force you to loose a method.

    we plan to run game specials at off times once we get a bit more experience with it. Things like .50 games over lunch time.

    Quoted from yuriijos:

    If it costs me more to play a .50/1.00 machine then I'm not good with it.

    It does not cost the player ANYTHING more.

    It does cost the operator as I think they take like 4% per play?

    Quoted from vid1900:

    In 1980 games went up to .50 cents.
    Adjusted for inflation, that would be $1.48 in today's dollars.

    Yeah, I am always amazed when pinheads with games in their own home are reluctant to pay $1 per play on location. I will happily pay $1 per play for clean and good playing games. That is way less thanthey cost me as a kid (inflation adjusted) and back then I did not have hardly any funds.

    Quoted from frolic:

    Operator 1:
    Makes $200k from their route. Declares $100k.
    Operator 2 with same route:
    Makes $240k from route ($40k bump from payrange). Declares Payrange take and tops it up with cash earnings, declaring 50%, $120k. Pockets the other $120k.

    I would like to be either operator in your world

    If I could bring in 100k I would happily claim it all!
