Warner’s Coin Machine Company players haunted the competition in Merit’s Rocktober Monster Madness Tournamaxx Tournament. The top 2 overall scores and the Single Game High Score were the work of Warner’s players.

Bob Majczyk of Erie, PA placed first with an average score of 431,700 points. He also took home the Single Game High Score title with a score of 470,850 points in one scarily great game. Both wins were earned at The Lager Café in his hometown on a Warner’s touchscreen. Coming in second with an average of 395,910 points was Gina Capello of Warren, PA. Gina plays at Freddy’s in Erie, PA on a Megatouch from Warner’s.

“Tournamaxx is a very effective tool,” said Warner’s Coin Machine Company owner Dave Warner. “It encourages first time customers to play at locations, thereby cementing your relationships with those locations. It’s essentially a video game league and the same revenue boosting principles are in play as in a pool or a dart league.”

Third place went to Joe Briesath of St. Paul, MN. Joe averaged 360,980 points playing on a Jubilee Music machine at the Clover Inn in Vadnais Heights, MN.
