A full-service solution, PrimeTime FEC Consulting offers the following services: feasibility guidance; site assessment; theming, branding and competitive differentiation concepts; architecture, interior design, layout and engineering; financial preparation & analysis; operations planning, staffing and end-to-end vendor identification; redemption program design; new games vs. certified pre-owned games determination and sourcing; and international FEC consulting in markets, including: Latin America, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Africa.
  • Certified Pre-Owned Program: As part of the company's existing businesses, PrimeTime Amusements continuously rehabilitates older and dying games. These refurbished or "reborn" games are often sent overseas to locations that do not require brand new equipment as well as to smaller operations in the U.S. that cannot afford new equipment. With the Certified Pre-Owned Program, PrimeTime Amusements is certifying these games. PrimeTime Technicians receive, assess and generate a report on game condition before putting each game through a rigorous 30-point technical checklist, including cabinet structure stability, electronic motherboard integrity, monitor clarity, parts functionality, graphics touchups, redemption mechanicals integrity, and parts audits. Only those games which pass with 100% technician sign-off will be approved to re-enter the marketplace and be backed by PrimeTime Amusement's Certified Pre-Owned guarantee.
