"Adult arcades" booming in Florida

I’ll apologize in advance for the headline, as when you look into this, it sounds different than what you might think – this has nothing to do with XXX adult arcades, just a type of arcade sprouting up in Florida that is sort of like a grown-up redemption center.  The players do play games like slot machines although they are not rigged for payout, instead you can win prizes which are generally gift cards. The news story does show some people who are really into the games and then goes off on a thing where people are being exploited by the arcades since there are so many and they show up in areas where their target base frequents. I guess they’ve never heard of target marketing and that these people are old enough to make their own decisions as to whether they will play there or not, so I can see why the state isn’t exactly pursuing these arcades like the journalists seem to want them to. Of course if it continues to boom and rake in even more money I’m sure the state will figure out some way to get their hands into it.

You won’t find any arcade games like we normally discuss on the site here but it’s interesting to see nonetheless. Full story (w/video) here at wptv.com.

    I’m sure the government watches these places like hawks. I personally don’t find anything interesting about these cherry masters/slot machines, especially if they don’t pay out.
