COLORADO SPRINGS, CO -- Intercard reports that it has completed the installation of its cashless technology in Uncle Buck's Fishbowl & Grill restaurant at the Bass Pro Shop here. This was the second of a number of planned Intercard installations for the popular restaurant chain; the first was in the Altoona, IA, outlet.

Nautical-themed Uncle Buck's Fishbowl offers casual family dining in an immersive underwater environment, and invites guests to "bowl in the ocean." Its new fun centers enhance the bowling attraction with a range of family-friendly arcade and videogames, contemporary and classic, including amusement and redemption equipment backed by full-service redemption counters and operating on Intercard's cashless technology. Player One Amusement Group (Mississauga, ON, Canada) supplies the games.

"Intercard's cashless technology gives Uncle Buck's management capabilities beyond what they had before, including the ability to remotely manage games from mobile devices and stay in business even if a fun center's Internet connection goes down," said Intercard chief executive Scott Sherrod. "We are also proud to be partnering with another innovative company from our home state of Missouri."

Founded in 1972, Bass Pro Shops is one of North America's premier outdoor and conservation companies. Intercard is a world leader in cashless technology for the amusement and attraction industries, with thousands of systems and millions of cards in use in more than 4,000 locations internationally. The company, founded in 1979, is based in St. Louis, MO, with branches in Europe and Asia.
