DALLAS — Dave & Buster’s has introduced three new mobile games based on some of its most popular arcade games.
These mobile games give Dave & Buster’s players the ability to play in the digital world and win prizes in the “real-world.” Players redeem points for real-world tickets automatically stored on their Power Card and redeemable for prizes at all Dave & Buster’s brick-and-mortar locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. Prizes range from toys and video games to gaming consoles and tablets. The games are available for both iOS and Android devices.
“We wanted to enhance our in-store experience by providing a virtual experience,” said Kevin Bachus, SVP, Entertainment and Games Strategy. “Now guests can keep the Dave & Buster’s fun going even when they’re not at our restaurant. They can download these new mobile games and win tickets to redeem for prizes on their next visit.”
Video game industry veteran Kevin Bachus led the creation of these new games for Dave & Buster’s. Bachus is one of the original creators of the Microsoft Xbox console and joined the Dallas-based restaurant group in 2012 to evolve the on-premise arcade experience into a multi-platform gaming experience.
“We didn’t just put an arcade game on your phone; we made these games feel native to mobile,” said Bachus, “These games are about more than winning tickets — these are really good, really fun games you will want to play.”
