Using RFID Cards as a Payment Ecosystem for Arcade Machines

Arcade machines have been a popular source of entertainment for decades. However, the traditional payment system of using coins and tokens are becoming a bit outdated and are inconvenient. In recent years, the use of RFID cards as a payment ecosystem for arcade machines has gained popularity. Our custom built RFID systems are built-to-order and can be used on 1 machine or 100.

What is an RFID Card?

RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. An RFID card is a small plastic card , fob, ring or any other product that contains an embedded microchip and antenna. The microchip stores information, and the antenna allows the card to communicate with a reader. When the card is placed near the reader, the reader sends a signal to the card, and the card responds with its stored information. RFID cards are commonly used for access control, identification, and payment systems. Each RFID card has a unique embedded number that can be used to store credits and activate machines.

Benefits of Using RFID Cards in Arcade Machines

  1. Convenience: RFID cards eliminate the need for coins and tokens. Players can simply load their cards with credits and use them to play games. This makes the payment process faster and more convenient for players.
  2. Increased Revenue: RFID cards can help increase revenue for arcade owners. Since players can load their cards with credits, they are more likely to spend more money on games. Additionally, RFID cards can be used to track player data, such as which games are played the most and how much money is spent. This data can be used to optimize game selection and pricing, which can lead to increased revenue.
  3. Reduced Maintenance: Coins and tokens can cause maintenance issues for arcade machines. They can get stuck in the machines, causing jams and other problems. RFID cards eliminate this issue, as there are no coins or tokens involved.
  4. Improved Security: RFID cards are more secure than coins and tokens. They cannot be counterfeited, and they can be easily deactivated if lost or stolen. This makes them a safer option for both players and arcade owners.

How to Implement an RFID Card Payment System

Implementing an RFID card payment system for arcade machines is a straightforward process.

  1. Choose the RFID Card System upgrade: Each of our arcade machines can be outfitted with an RFID reader next to the standard coin acceptor. These readers will communicate with the RFID cards and deduct credits from the cards as players use them.
  2. Load Credits onto Cards: Players can load credits onto their RFID cards through your website and payment gateway or with an attendant. The credits can then be used to play games. If needed you can also use Made for arcade’s proprietary RFID card eco-system to load credits on cards from anywhere in the world through our webbased solutions.
  3. Track Player Data: Use the data collected from the RFID cards to track player behavior. This data can be used to optimize game selection and pricing.

RFID cards offer a convenient, secure, and efficient payment system for arcade machines. They can eliminate the need for coins and tokens and also work well alongside coin collectors ; RFID systems increase revenue, reduce maintenance, and improve security. Implementing an RFID card payment system is a win-win situation that improves the player experience adds security layers and increases revenue.

La prise de contact est simple et rapide. Patron a l'écoute du client et connaît ce qu il vend. La machine achetée tourne parfaitement et ne présente aucuns défauts d utilisation ou de construction. Il y en a pour toutes les bourses. Complètement dans mes attentes, le son de qualite et le monnayeur est un plus dans ma recherche de la nostalgie.

Een mini claw besteld en in slechts 2 werkdagen geleverd zonder beschadigingen! Altijd vriendelijk geholpen geweest op mijn vragen, zelfs 's avonds laat en in het weekend. Duidelijke handleidingen aanwezig. Ze hebben ook een showroom waar je eventueel de toestellen kunt uittesten. Zeker een aanrader als je buitenlandse grijpkasten wilt kopen zonder gedoe met douane & hoge verzendkosten, koop het lekker lokaal bij made for arcade! Een onderneming vol met ambitie, doe zo verder!

We have ordered a 4K virtual pinball machine with 4 screens. Everything went perfectly, each contact with the team was quick and conclusive. Pinball has arrived to us in Switzerland. We chose to take a local carrier as it seemed easier for everyone. The pinball machine is fantastic and we don't regret our purchase. It's a pity that we can't modify the parameters of the tables (encrypted files). We definitely recommend Madeforarcade for any purchase.
