Arcade game pricing?

    Hello,  I just bought a 60 in 1 video arcade game and priced it at 50 cents per play.  It seems as though I'm not getting very many plays per day.  I was wondering if 25 cent per play would attract more players?

    Yes.  A 50% discount should attract more business at the games.  However, know your operating costs and decide which provides the best ROI.  If it takes $.50 cents a play to make money, then don't lose money at more $.25 cents a play business.  If $.25 cents per game makes money...go for it as a introductory rate and raise it to $.50 later.

    In our market, many of the parents can't afford to give their kids the money to play the arcade we don't have them.
