Increasing dwell time is an essential component for many businesses in the entertainment and hospitality industry. Another key is driving more foot traffic. Hosting events can be a solution for both. That’s where Big Buck Hunter comes in.
Big Buck Hunter is one of the most iconic arcade games around, with a passionate fan base of millions of players. The newly launched Big Buck Hunter: Reloaded™ is a celebration of 20 years of the world’s favorite hunting game and a great addition to any location - especially bars and restaurants, where business depends on steady traffic.
If you already have a Big Buck Hunter at your location, let us show you how to maximize its earnings and popularity. From an online portal to game ambassadors, Raw Thrills and Play Mechanix have all the tools you need to run a successful tournament.
Getting your Big Buck Hunter online has more benefits than just access to great content and automatic updates. You can also tap into one of the largest arcade fan bases around as an online Operator, and you’ll have access to CoinUp - a user-friendly site that allows you to take control of your games like never before. Online tools, earnings reports, player loyalty insights, fully customizable tournaments, remote game management, and more are just a click away.
For years, the Big Buck Hunter and Coinup platforms have made it easy for locations to host their own events. Hosting a dedicated Big Buck Hunter night is a proven way to bump foot traffic and profits on a slow night of the week, integrating custom advertisements for drink or food specials can boost your bottom line as well.
The Big Buck Game Wardens are the official street team for Big Buck Hunter. The Warden’s represent some of the best and brightest voices in the Big Buck community. The main priority of these player brand ambassadors is to foster growth in the community and bring games into new locations. This can be done successfully by creating social events in your community, such as bar crawls, social media discussions/promotions, and targeted local tournaments.
With the Game Warden program, Big Buck Hunter works to engage and connect hardcore players with casual players and ultimately grow business for all parties involved. During live events in their area, Wardens can sign up new players, a crucial part of the Game Warden program, which not only brings new business but benefits the Wardens themselves with Play Mechanix-sponsored perks. Additionally, live events bring valuable engagement opportunities to any market and keep players of all skill levels coming back for more.
The Game Wardens work directly with Play Mechanix to create the best possible program for each region. While Play Mechanix provides direct support and resources in the form of swag boxes, promotional graphics, and a direct line to the Big Buck community, the Wardens are crucial for bringing in-market perspective and leverage existing connections with local players and businesses.
Aside from just the direct earnings from the game itself, the added benefit of additional traffic and dwell time should boost your profits. According to a study by PathIntelligence, increasing dwell time by just 1 percent leads to an average 1.3 percent increase in sales for locations with food and beverages.
