Big Bear Eyeprize

SANTA BARBARA, CA -- Big Bear Import Brokers Inc. has upgraded its Eyeprize amusement novelty, which combines a videogame and bulk merchandising. The new version, called the Eyeprize X, is taller, has larger touchscreen monitors and features LED illumination atop the machine.

Eyeprize X has the same compact footprint as its predecessor, 24" deep by 33" wide, but is about 24" taller, or 78" high. There are two 22" HD touchscreens, compared with the original 15" display. Topping off the new machine is a state-of-the-art, custom-built LED display at the top of the unit.

"We've used some of the same cutting-edge LED lighting technology found all over Las Vegas to light up the top of the X, attracting eyes from across any location," said Big Bear's Aaron Pelto. Eyeprize games, which comply with Made in the USA standards, vend a prize in a 4" capsule with each transaction, so there's a winner every time.

Pelto said the upgrades to Eyeprize are aimed at capturing attention and enhancing the player experience in the same compact footprint as the original machine.

The new unit has the same features that have made Big Bear equipment a favorite among amusement and bulk operators, including a heavy-duty steel frame and a triple-lock theft-prevention system; it's equipped with a 500-note uploading acceptor from Pyramid Technologies. Eyeprizes also have motion detectors that trigger video and audio play, automatically changing machine modes from dormant to active.

Big Bear is targeting Eyeprize machines of all sizes for such high-traffic locations as movie theaters, FECs and bowling alleys.
