DALLAS -- Dave & Buster's has launched an application for Android and iPhone users that makes it easy for guests to reload their Power Cards at home, on the go or even from the seat of their favorite game. The app is free and available now at the App Store and Google Play.

The big-box arcade and restaurant chain worked with Apriva, a Scottsdale, AZ-based provider of secure mobile commerce and payment processing technologies, to develop the app for its PowerCard, a payment medium used at all its locations. Apriva also has developed cashless vending system for vending operators.

"Dave & Buster's recognizes that a growing number of customers want the convenience of a mobile payment solution, without compromising security," said Paul Coppinger, president of Apriva.

In addition to mobile Power Card charging, the Dave & Buster's charging station app allows users to track and check their balances, rewards points and tickets earned toward Winners Circle prizes. The app also includes a location finder that directs users to the restaurant and entertainment chain's nearest location.

Dave & Buster's fans can download the app using their Android or iPhone instruments, and sign up for an account. They then input a Power Card by entering the number and four-digit PIN on the back of the card. (Power Cards without four-digit PINs can be swapped for a new card at any Dave & Buster's location.) To recharge the Power Card, users enter credit card information and authorize payment.

"When guests come to D&B, they get state-of-the-art games, and we wanted charging a Power Card to be high-tech, too," said Sean Gleason, chief marketing officer of Dave & Buster's. "We're passionate about play, and with this new app you can pack even more play into your time at D&B."
