One Step Closer to the Lottery Launch

We had an exciting delivery last week……..the first of our new digital lottery machines!

The ‘ Community Lotto-Xtra’ machines house both a weekly draw and three instant win games. We even have a Bonus Bob branded game!

Instant Draw Games

Each weekly draw has an in house and a national winner! We believe this will be an excellent footfall driver as players return to sites to see if they were the lucky lotto winners.

This is the first true pub lottery and we  know it’s going to make waves in the gaming and amusement world.

Trials commencing this month!

MyJUKE Joy!

We are very pleased with the success of our MyJUKE Facebook project. The page allows jukebox users to request a song via Facebook which is then collated by us and sent to manufacturers to be update the machines. Although some jukeboxes already have the ‘request’ function on them which is great, we have found some customers enjoy the conversation that can build around a song request on Facebook.

After studying one of our sites which is very active on MyJUKE we have discovered that the service has a positive impact on the cash in box of the machine. We inform users when the tracks are put onto the machines and encourage them to go and pay to play it on their local box. Now that we know the concept works we will be sure to roll it out further.

The Gadget Show Live!

Here are Nick and Helena testing out a WIFI camera at The Gadget Show live at the NEC in Birmingham.  The exhibition was full of innovative new products and  heaving with people ready to test them out!

Among the future products were a voice activated TV, 360 degree video camera and Nick’s favorite, a superior cheese grater! (He came away with two!)

 

Our new employee could have done with a shave!

Bob Rudd….the gold at the end of the rainbow

It was a rainy, grey Saturday when all of the vans headed to the Newcastle head office for their new livery. At around lunchtime the weather really began to set it (halting our game of kick a bout in the car park!) however no sooner had the first van been completed than the sun came out and shone a rainbow directly above the workshop!
