Dave and Buster’s is going to let you start gambling on arcade games

It probably won’t result in someone getting hit in the face with a Skee-Ball, but Dave & Buster’s announced Tuesday that patrons will soon be able to gamble on arcade games.

Lucra is a company that has developed betting technology. very Be careful not to use the words “gambling” or “betting” and instead refer to it as a “challenge” or “real money contest.” But if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck. This allows customers to place bets directly on things like Skee Ball, Pop-A-Shot, and other similar skill-based games. At this time, it is unclear how deeply the gambling technology will be implemented or if this will be applicable to all competitive games at Dave & Busters.

Betting on the game is only allowed for people over the age of 18 and is expected to be rolled out soon. Let’s be real. Friendly bets on things like this have been around forever, but they’ve never been codified as such. Wording that sounds like something straight out of the Silicon Valley nightmare handbook..

“Whether you play pickleball with friends or golf on the weekend, we work with our partners to help amplify and digitize that experience,” Robbins said.

Time will tell how this plays out. If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that nothing can go wrong when you combine alcohol and gambling.
