    Making Money From An Arcade Machine?

    Is this even worth it? I have been thinking about buying an old machine and cleaning it up and putting it in a Mom and Pop shop in town. From what I have searched, the older machines tend to be $300-$400. Does anybody have any experience with this? Would I actually make any money from it? Or should I not even bother?

    Doubt it would make much anymore, due to cellphones. But a few people might play for nostalgia.

    They all have but disappeared for a reason.

    Doubt it when there are mobile devices that you can play on. Unless it's one of those arcade machines where you point a gun at the screen.

    Soda and Vending Machines are the way to go.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    You're not going to see any profit anytime soon, if at all.
    There used to be 3-4 in the old daycare/teen spot that would have lines behind them all day, but I haven't been there since I was 12

    I own a pinball machine but it's rare if someone even plays on it.

    Don't know if you would make much from an arcade meachine but if you get something like this vvvvv then you should make good money off of it. I would drop 100$ a week on them when I would go out to bars and to play pool.

    Set up a porn machine and make them pay 3 dollars. I bet you'll make big money.

    Lol there's one of those down at the MMA place, though it ain't a machine, and I can hardly tell if I'm hitting it correctly.

    Yes. And buy bouncers to make sure they get out in 5 minutes or less.
