Why Using Tokens Is Better Than Free Play

In the world of arcade gaming, the choice between using tokens and offering free play can significantly impact both players and arcade owners. At MadeforArcade, we firmly believe that tokens provide a superior experience for everyone involved. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the reasons why using tokens is a smart move, whether you’re buying or renting amusement machines.

The MadeforArcade Tokens: What Are They?

Before we dive into the benefits, let’s understand what MadeforArcade tokens are. These metal coins are specifically designed for arcade machines, coffee stations, laundromats, car washes, and other coin-operated devices. Here’s why they stand out:

  1. Universal Fit: MadeforArcade tokens come in a popular size that fits all gaming machines. Whether you’re operating classic pinball games, claw machines, or coin pushers, these tokens work seamlessly.
  2. Ideal for Coin Pushers: A typical full-size coin pusher can hold up to 3,000 tokens during regular use. If you’re building bonus stacks or towers, that number can go up to 4,500 tokens. Having enough tokens ensures uninterrupted gameplay for your patrons.
  3. Versatility: MadeforArcade tokens aren’t limited to arcade machines. They’re also fantastic for a wide range of token-based games and serve as excellent change for board games. Who doesn’t love a bucket full of coins?

Benefits of Using MadeforArcade Tokens

1. Security and Control

  • Fraud Prevention: Tokens eliminate the risk of counterfeit bills or coins. With MadeforArcade tokens, you’re in control of the currency within your arcade.
  • Reduced Theft: Unlike cash, tokens have no street value outside your arcade. Say goodbye to sticky-fingered thieves!

2. Economic Efficiency

  • Cost-Effective: When you buy or rent arcade machines, using tokens is more cost-effective than free play. Tokens encourage players to spend wisely, leading to longer gameplay sessions.
  • Easy Pricing Adjustments: Adjusting game prices is a breeze with tokens. Increase or decrease the token value without recalibrating the entire machine.

3. Enhanced Player Experience

  • Tangible Fun: There’s something satisfying about dropping a token into a slot. It adds a tactile element to the gaming experience.
  • Collectible Appeal: Players often keep tokens as souvenirs. Customize your MadeforArcade tokens with your logo or design for added collectibility.

4. Marketing and Branding

  • Branding Opportunity: Tokens with your logo reinforce your arcade’s brand. They’re mini billboards that players carry home.
  • Promotions and Special Events: Use tokens for special promotions, discounts, or themed events. It’s an engaging way to attract more players.

5. Operational Efficiency

  • Faster Transactions: Counting tokens is quicker than handling cash. Keep the lines moving smoothly during peak hours.
  • Less Cash Handling: Reduce the need for cash management and trips to the bank.


At MadeforArcade, we believe that tokens enhance the arcade experience for both players and operators. They offer security, economic advantages, and branding opportunities. So, whether you’re setting up a new arcade or upgrading an existing one, choose MadeforArcade tokens. Your patrons will appreciate the convenience, and your business will thrive.

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.
