It is essential to do more promotion, create large displays and large cards, and clearly communicate the purpose of lottery tickets(reward points) to the players.

In fact, a high-quality redemption ticket machine needs to go through a very long, rigorous and thorough research and development process, which is difficult and difficult for non-industry people to understand. From research, proposal, to art, writing algorithms, to internal testing, field testing, modification, and finally listing, all need to go through a series of cumbersome processes that are difficult to calculate.
How to perform daily maintenance and servicing on redemption machines?
Some trivial and detailed issues with redemption machines need to be identified as early as possible, and matters on-site should be addressed on-site to the greatest extent, without waiting or observing. Therefore, in terms of equipment maintenance, it is important to pay attention to the following:
1. New machine entry performance, as it is relatively unstable in operation at this stage, requires dedicated supervision, timely follow-up, and improvements.
2. Redemption machines are relatively prone to collecting dust, which can lead to mechanical wear and corrosion. Dust can also cause issues with circuit boards, such as conductivity and optical sensor malfunctions. Thus, both internal and external cleanliness of redemption machines are equally important. Regular cleaning schedules for internal and daily cleaning for external components should be established.
3. Timely inspect the quality and durability of certain components. If issues are detected with imaging equipment, for example, replacements are necessary. A thorough understanding and mastery of the machine's performance can help extend its lifespan and ensure normal usage rates. Critical inspection areas include vulnerable parts such as motors, drive belts, gears of ticket dispensers, and sensors.
4. Frequent changes in prize point settings and payout rates are discouraged. Improvements in winning odds should be pursued through other methods and approaches.
5. All machines should have procedures for ticket removal and shredding to protect the ticket dispensers from damage.

At present, most of the amusement centers use prepaid sales model and have established a membership system by pre-selling their game tokens. So the most significant challenge to them is how to encourage players to consume their prepaid tokens quickly. The excessive pre-purchased game tokens will become a significant challenge for the game center to achieve profitability.
So the stock quantity of pre-purchased tokens is an issue must be concerned, especially in the highly competitive current market. Only when the amusement park maintains a healthy cycle of token sales, consumption, stockpiling, consumption, and sales again can it ensure sustained growth and profitability.
How to choose the exchange gifts of the tickets(reward points)?

What is the character of mechanical redemption machine?
Mechanical redemption machines play a role in rapidly consuming game tokens, with just a few seconds or a dozen seconds needed for one token to be inserted and the experience completed. From a revenue perspective, coin pushers or token pushers are considered the most ideal machines, and we define them as neutral machines. However, some venues are currently too eager to purchase an excessive number of these neutral machines, hoping for substantial additional profits. In reality, this often leads to a decrease in token intake for one coin pusher when another is purchased. Venues should pay more attention to skill-based experiential redemption machines that not only generate revenue but also provide an entertaining experience. This feature is most apparent in mechanical redemption machines. By using skill-based challenges and rewards as a driving force, they attract players to insert more tokens, earn more tickets(reward points), and cater to various age groups. Both adults and children enjoy playing these machines, achieving a sense of accomplishment through skill-based gameplay at the venue. It also ensures the venue's sustainable revenue, with the most crucial aspect being that skill-based mechanical redemption machines generate incremental income for the venue.
How to place the redemption machines in a right place?
One of the key features of redemption machines is that they primarily thrive on the ambiance of the venue. For instance, a coin pusher and a simulator can operate independently, but having only one redemption machine is not feasible. Therefore, when it comes to the placement of redemption machines, consider the following:
1,Ensure that the placement and layout of the equipment are distinct and centralized.
2,Keep noise levels low and avoid having a line of sight that spans too far to prevent players from easily taking in everything, which may slow down their movement.
3,Avoid clustering high-ticket payout machines and disperse machines of the same style.
4,Mix popular machines with less popular ones and avoid placing all popular machines together.
How to guides works?
Dedicated staff should be assigned to the redemption area to handle tasks such as changing ticket paper and addressing minor machine issues, ensuring that assistance is readily available when players need it. In the service provided in the redemption area, attention to detail and thoughtful service gestures can leave a lasting impression on players. Through these unspoken acts of consideration and attentiveness, players naturally develop a positive perception of the redemption machine atmosphere, which is a crucial way to cultivate returning customers.
For example:
1. Proactively inquire and add tickets when a customer's machine is running low on tickets.
2. Assist players in organizing tickets when they are dispensed unevenly.
3. Offer storage tools such as storage bags and rubber bands when customers are arranging their tickets.
4. Provide free USB interfaces for charging near popular machines and rest areas.
5. Implement warm and clear reminders, guidance on ticket redemption, and directional signage, all designed to be straightforward. The more of these you provide, the more players will appreciate your thoughtfulness, without finding it bothersome.
