|The Dave & Buster's Alcohol
There Is A Reason Dave & Buster's Is So
Violent: They Get Their Guests Totally Drunk!
Recently in our article The Top 13 Ways Dave & Buster's
Harass Their Staff we documented how many Dave & Buster's locations have become
extremely dangerous but until now we never explained why so many violent incidents have been
occurring at Dave & Buster's.
The truth is many Dave & Buster's locations have become extremely dangerous because they
constantly and knowingly over serve their guests alcohol. This is well documented and Dave &
Buster's has been punished numerous times for violating laws pertaining to the serving of alcoholic
Dave & Buster's has had their liquor licenses suspended on numerous occasions. The license was suspended at Dave & Buster's
Ontario for 25 days in 2008. The license was suspended at Dave & Buster's Milipitas for 10 days
in 2010. The license was also suspended
at Dave & Buster's Maple Grove in 2011 for selling alcohol to a minor in an
At Dave & Buster's Hawaii they were
fined $2,000 for selling to a minor. Dave & Buster's was recently
busted in an undercover sting selling alcohol to a minor at their Marietta location. Dave &
Buster's was even prohibited from opening a proposed location in Burlington due to concerns raised
over the possibiliites of under age drinking taking place.
Dave & Buster's has flashy drinks like the Coronarita. They also have jello shots they serve
out of a syringe. Dave & Buster's even stocks their winner's circle with a lot of
alcohol themed prizes, like shot glasses.
Dave & Buster's doesn't even have pitchers of beer. Instead, they have a giant beer tower.
The beer tower has to be purchased by four people. But, the tower is left for the guests to do with
as they please. So, one guest could just consume 75% of it if they wanted to.
A large part of Dave & Buster's money is acquired by getting customers drunk so
they can rip them off by playing their broken games. It is
an absolute fact that the games at Dave & Buster's are habitually broken. They have been
broken for a very long time. The games are broken at Dave
& Buster's locations nationwide. Dave & Buster's will even break the games on purpose. Dave
& Buster's rarely fixes games, unless it is absolutely necessary.
There are pretty much only two reasons Dave & Buster's will fix a game. The first
reason is: if a player, that has enough clout, keeps complaining about a particular game
being broken Dave & Buster's may, possibly, fix that game. The second reason is: if a
game breaks so badly that Dave & Buster's cannot leave it powered on, they will
almost always fix that game to get it back in a state that makes it playable enough to be powered
on, because powered off games bring in no revenue. Other than what we just
mentioned, Dave & Buster's rarely fixes their games, because broken games are almost
always more lucrative to them.
Understand that Dave & Buster's has very little gaming regulations and allow their facilities
to get extremely run down. Many of the games are often habitually broken and Dave & Buster's
intentionally allows that to happen to make more money. That is why Dave & Buster's wants their
guests drunk. Drunk guests usually have low standards and spend more money playing broken games,
whereas sober customers often get upset about the games being broken. Drunk guests obviously
spend more money on alcohol as well.
We have basically broken down the Dave & Buster's players into three distinct
factions. First, there are the little kids and fish that don't know any better than to waste their
money playing broken games. Second, there are the regular players who are extremely
disgruntled about having to constantly play broken games and get ripped off. Third, there are
the drunk customers who break the games and go to Dave & Buster's just to get drunk and
Dave & Buster's entire company is based around alcohol. They even have a game service
switch on some of their games. That switch allows the heavy drinkers to order more drinks
without even having to get up from their seats. The game service switch also gives Dave &
Buster's a very vegas feel and encourages repeated plays. But, there is one big difference between
Dave & Buster's and a Vegas casino. At Dave & Buster's there are a bunch of little kids
Under age drinking is a huge problem at Dave &
Buster's. At casinos minors are prohibited from being on the game floor at all times. Imagine if
casinos let children tag along with their parents. It just wouldn't work, because that atmosphere
is just too much for children to handle in a responsible manner.
However, children walk around Dave & Buster's all the time unaccompanied by an
adult. Little kids steal tickets constantly. Who is to say they cannot just pick up an
abandoned half-drunk glass of beer and chug it down?
Minors can also just camp out in front of Dave & Buster's and ask an older person to walk in
with them, acting like that person is their guardian. In these instances, once they get inside
the "guardian" just goes off on their way.
They also have multiple entrances at some Dave & Buster's locations. So, under age guests could
just sneak in the rear entrance to get in, because while the rear entrance is
often locked it is usually left unguarded. All they would have to do is wait until
someone opens the door to exit and then sneak in. At that point they could just ask an adult
to buy them alcohol or use a fake ID at the bar.
There is both a midway bar and a sports bar at most Dave & Buster's locations. So, if
an under age guest strikes out at one bar they can just go to another one to try again. Dave
& Buster's often staffs a lot of bartenders and may rotate those bartenders
constantly, giving under age drinkers a multitude of opportunities to purchase
In most states it is illegal for children to walk around a bar unsupervised. But, at Dave
& Buster's rules are meant to be broken. At Dave & Buster's it is virtually impossible to
enforce many of their own policies. So, minors can often just come in before the driver's license
scanners are used, the security checkpoints are set up, and the security personnel establish a
perimeter. Once they are inside, they can pretty much go where ever they want to go.
The whole premise behind Dave & Buster's leads to the high probability of minors
consuming alcohol. That is because Dave & Buster's midway staff pretty much just let kids run
around and do whatever they want to do. Dave & Buster's might have an official policy that
states that parents are supposed to accompany their children. But, that policy is rarely
enforced, unless those children are acting in an extremely obnoxious manner that is readily
apparent. There simply are not enough Dave & Buster's staff members to babysit each and every
minor and child on the premises.
The basic unofficial rule of thumb at Dave & Buster's is that once kids get through the front
door and past the initial security check point they pretty much have carte blanch to roam the
premises. Dave & Buster's basically places parents in charge of their kids but parents often
just let their kids loose and plop themselves down at the bar.
Unsupervised children will constantly manhandle and
break the games, due to the fact that parents rarely watch their kids closely, and that is
just one of the many reasons that a lot of the games are extremely broken at Dave &
Considering that Dave & Buster's is often severely understaffed, staff usually have enough to
worry about already and know that if they turn into a kindergarden cop and don't attend
to their duties they will probably get berated by their managers. So, staff often
have little to no incentive to stop children from doing whatever they please. The
only time staff will typically intervene is when an issue emerges involving a child severely
misbehaving or getting lost. For instance, if a child was crying and looking for their mother staff
may intervene. But, other than that, it is pretty much a free for all.
Dave & Buster's is also dimly lit, with many nooks and crannies. That allows under
age guests to hide in the shadows. If staff catch them, what are they really going to do anyway?
Security guards are very reluctant to place their hands on a minor in most circumstances, due to
legal reasons, and they are often more focused on breaking up fights and performing pat
downs at the front door anyway.
Underage drinking is only a part of the problem at Dave & Buster's. The adult clientelle is
often over served and allowed to get totally out of control. One of the major factors in all of
this is the Dave & Buster's late night happy hour, wherein guests often go to Dave &
Buster's just to get totally wasted. There are often fights, puking, and drunken
We read countless stories of female guests stating that they were scared off of going to Dave &
Buster's because of the unruly male clientelle. The Dave & Buster's core demographic is
typically male and at many locations single women are often scarce.
Dave & Buster's bartenders are often horribly trained and over pouring is extremely common, with bartenders
often playing favoritism. Dave & Buster's bartenders often serve watered down drinks to
compensate and in the end it all balances out numerically.
At a bar it is often hard to
tell how intoxicated someone is just by looking at them. It is also very hard to
tell how many drinks a guest had if they keep using different bartenders. At
one Dave & Buster's location they were reported to have a rotating assortment
of fifty bartenders and the training was apparently
You really can't blame people for coming to Dave & Buster's to get drunk. That's what drunk
people do. It's Dave & Buster's fault for allowing it to happen and promoting a reckless
culture of bacchanalian revelry. Dave & Buster's promotes excess and glamorizes the consumption
of large amounts of alcohol. If you ever examine Dave & Buster's giant beer tower, we think
that one product alone is a testament to Dave & Buster's reckless attitude
Guests barfing all over the place is common at Dave & Buster's and the bathrooms are
often full of puke. A guest defecated on the
floor at Dave & Buster's Pittsburgh once. Another guest picked up a giant strongman
game sledge hammer and used it to smash the air hockey table there too. One guest even
slashed all the footballs in Two Minute Drill one time at that very same location. Sober people
typically just don't do those sorts of things.
Staff themselves may even get trashed before going to work, as
one Dave & Buster's staff member revealed. Another Dave & Buster's staff member revealed
that managers at their location were high on cocaine due to excessive workload. Since staff at Dave & Buster's are usually promoted
based on favoritism, and not merit, the people promoted are often not the best candidates for the
We also think the high volume of drunk customers explains why staff are so habitually rude towards customers. By Dave
& Buster's encouraging excessive alcohol consumption, it creates rude guests that get unruly.
That causes staff to get tired of dealing with the drunks and the staff often end up treating all
the customers like they treat the drunks. It has gotten so bad that Dave & Buster's has
practically started kicking out any guests who complain about anything whatsoever and have adopted
somewhat of an if-you-don't-like-it-then-leave
Extremely long Wait times are a huge factor into why Dave &
Buster's guests get so drunk and we have begun to suspect that Dave & Buster's intentionally
has long wait times to keep their guest trapped at their locations and drinking longer,
because if guests spend more time at Dave & Buster's they have more of an opportunity to
get blasted and play broken games. At Dave & Buster's they have somehow found a way to turn a
two hour evening of drinking and playing broken games into a five hour evening of getting
totally blasted and playing broken games.
If guests go down to Dave & Buster's on a Saturday night and discover the wait time for a table
will be an hour, what are they going to do? They are probably going to have a few drinks.
But, often an hour turns into two hours, because there is an ongoing issue of staff lying to
guests about the wait times. That causes guests to get agitated. It also traps the guests there
because they have already made a temporal investment after waiting an hour and often feel
compelled to wait it out. So, a guest might drink for an hour and then be told it will be another
hour. At that point they often just drink some more. By the time they finally sit down to
eat they may already be drunk.
The long wait times also factor into under age guests being present at Dave & Buster's late at
night. If a family arrives at seven o'clock and it takes them two and a half hours to get
seated but at ten o'clock children are prohibited, that is a situation that can make guests
highly agitated, especially if they were initially told the wait time would be an hour. At that
point, in the middle of dinner they would be forced to leave. In many instances, staff would feel
bad for kicking them out because it was Dave & Buster's fault, being that most
guests arriving at seven o'clock would expect to leave by ten. So, you cannot really
blame guests in these instances and in these types of situations staff may be compelled to let
them slide. However, guests are kicked out of Dave & Buster's all the time too. It really just
depends upon if the managers are in a good mood or not.
In case Dave & Buster's didn't know this, if they get a bunch of people drunk and trap them at
their facilities having to wait on a table for two hours, then rip them off playing
broken games, then treat them in a rude and hostile manner, that is what leads to problems, because
drunk people don't typically like getting ripped off and verbally abused.
Dave & Buster's has essentially created an extremely hosile environment, an environment of their own design and construction. One woman even
stormed out of a Dave & Buster's location without paying because the service was so terrible
We also read a story regarding a man who traveled to Dave & Buster's to drink. Before he sat
down he gave his credit card to the bartender in advance and planned on paying his tab when he was
finished drinking. So, when it was time for the man to leave the bartender told the man that he
accidentally lost his credit card. The man then called his credit card company to report the card
stolen and discovered that there were two mysterious charges for ~$75 a piece charged to his
account. So, the man, thinking that thieves used his credit card already, cancelled his credit
card. A few minutes later Dave & Buster's staff approach him and informed him that they had his
credit card all along and accidentally used it to pay for the orders of two other groups of people.
At that point, the man had no credit card to pay with and was mistreated by rude Dave &
Things like this happen at Dave & Buster's every single day and Dave & Buster's tries to
blame their customers for everything that goes wrong. Often customers are asked to leave Dave &
Buster's the moment they complain. Since guests at Dave & Buster's are often intoxicated
it just leads to problems, especially when guests feel like they are being mistreated and taken
If you examine
the yelp reviews of Dave & Buster's locations you will see countless reports
involving intoxicated guests causing problems at Dave & Buster's. There have been a
multitude of fights between guests at
Dave & Buster's locations. There was a
shooting inside Dave & Buster's Arcadia in 2007. There was a murder inside Dave & Buster's Arcadia in
2010. A Dave & Buster's waitress was
abducted and then later raped after leaving Dave & Buster's Ontario. Two children were
stabbed at Dave & Buster's locations in two seperate
incidents. A teenager was
sexually assaulted in a video booth. There was a shootout outside of the
Houston Dave & Buster's. There was a double
homicide outside of Dave & Buster's Arundel Mills. A man was even beaten
so bad at a Dave & Buster's location that he later died.
Fights at Dave & Buster's are also extremely common. We suspect the only reason that there are
no giant Dave & Buster's brawl videos on youtube is because Dave & Buster's has no cameras
in their midways and also has a strict anti-videotaping policy, which largely prevents fights from
being captured on tape. But, there have been a multitude of fights at Dave & Buster's
Nine people were arrested for getting into a giant brawl at Dave & Buster's Arundel
Mills. There have also been countless
fights at Dave & Buster's Milipitas and we even read that they have nightly brawls in the
parking lot at that Dave & Buster's location as well.
Chaos and mayhem breaking out in Dave & Buster's parking lots is more common than most people
think. At Dave & Buster's Farmingdale a man drug his girlfriend through the parking lot by her
hair one night. After witnessing the incident, a pack of vigilante guests, appalled
by the man's actions, then proceeded to
flip the man's car over.
There was even a huge brawl in the parking lot
at the Dolphin Mall in Miami Florida, a mall where a Dave & Buster's location is
located. Dave & Buster's security has also been known to grip up guests and violently eject them into the
parking lot, in a manner similar to how uncle Phil habitually kicked Jazz out of his house on
the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
Crime is extremely common at Dave & Buster's and the truth is that Dave & Buster's has
become a magnet for criminal activity, due to their irresponsible sales of alcohol, their lack
or regulations, and their reluctance
to staff enough security guards and police.
One of the primary issues that makes Dave & Buster's extremely problematic is that is it a
bar, an establishment that operates as a restaurant in the day and morphs into a
nightclub at night. If not operated properly, morph bars can lead to disasterous outcomes.
In Wauwatosa, neighbors complained about the many
dangers that their local Dave & Buster's brought to their
community. Neighbors complained that Dave
& Buster's customers were parking in front of their homes. They also complained that
Dave & Buster's customers were getting drunk, driving drunk, littering, vomiting on
their property, and causing a variety of other problems. Neighbors even suspected that
Dave & Buster's customers were planning to burglarize their homes, because they
noticed people creeping by and peeping into their garage windows apparently looking
for items to steal.
At one Dave & Buster's location thieves broke in and tried to steal an
ATM machine. At another location a man dressed in a fake uniform came in and stole the armored car pickup
money. At Dave & Buster's Braintree someone was arrested
out front for the possession of cocaine.
Since criminals know that Dave & Buster's has lacksidaisical security and virtually no
regulations they often see Dave & Buster's as a safe haven, a place they can go to and conduct
criminal activities unimpeded. A lot of Dave & Buster's staff are crooked too. So, that is just
like sending out an invitation to criminals.
Dave & Buster's is actually the perfect place for criminals because it has the appearance of
being safe, when in fact is it not. That type of location allows a potential mark to
lower their guard and is thus very attractive to criminals. One guest's daugher had her cell phone
and souvenier bag stolen from the Orlando Dave & Buster's. Another guest misplaced her cell
phone at a Dave & Buster's and later discovered that the general manager at that Dave &
Buster's sold her phone on Amazon. The phone was later returned to her by the police. But, to
our knowledge, that general manager still worked at that Dave & Buster's for an
extended period of time after that. One guest, Kei Hsu, actually
stated that a Dave & Buster's manager even condoned the theft of tickets.
Dave & Buster's has
essentialy devolved into a run down wannabe casino with virtually no regulations and absolute
minimum security. That has allowed Dave & Buster's to become the criminal mecca of
the modern world and Dave & Buster's is now kind of like the Disney World for
People can just come to Dave & Buster's and steal tickets, get drunk, get in fights, throw up
in the bathrooms, have sex in the photo booths, flip over cars in the parking lot, and Dave &
Buster's corporate pretty much just sits down in Texas with the ringer off ducking calls and
This all makes Dave & Buster's extremely dangerous to communities. The actual reason Dave &
Buster's was investigated at their Ontario location was because there were complaints within the
community about Dave & Buster's not being safe.
In 2008, Alcohol Beverage Control wrote, "action was taken by ABC Investigators on Thursday,
February 7, 2008 because of illegal activity that occurred at the location. ABC filed an accusation
claiming the establishment was operating a disorderly house because it had become a law enforcement
problem. Over the past two years, the Ontario Police Department responded numerous times to this
location for various problems including fights and public drunkenness."
One of the primary reasons Dave & Buster's is extremely dangerous is because they
have a tendency to habitually understaff their facilities. Dave & Buster's management
likes to intentionally understaff their locations to save money and will even reduce
police to cut down on costs. Management does this because they get special payroll bonuses
if they meet staffing goals.
What are one or two security guards really going to do to stop a multitude of policy
violations and illegal infractions they see going on, especially if a location is packed with
~1,600 people? Are security guards really going to manhandle every single ten year
old kid they see running around unsupervised and risk getting in trouble, when they are
probably getting mistreated by management and poorly paid anyway?
Security cannot be everywhere at once. They also cannot help it if management encourages
bartenders to over serve guests to get them blasted and to make more money. All security
can really do is protect the perimeter, break up any disturances, and try to detain
anyone they witness commit any criminal acts.
One security guard is simply not enough to stop the kinds of things that can happen at Dave &
Buster's, especially considering they are often only armed with a taser and mace. To illustrate
one Dave & Buster's security guard was severly beaten at one Dave & Buster's location
and at another Dave & Buster's location two security guards were
shot along with an assistant manager.
Even the police cannot stop the Dave & Buster's crime wave. Police officers have even been
injured at Dave & Buster's locations. Outside one Dave & Buster's location a
police officer was shot three times. Another police officer was thrown off of a moving car
tried to arrest four suspects that appeared to be under the influence of drugs in a Dave
& Buster's parking lot.
The police know how drunk Dave & Buster's customers can get due to over serving. So,
police will set up DUI checkpoints to target drunk drivers leaving Dave & Buster's,
because they know that Dave & Buster's customers often get totally wasted there.
Dave & Buster's Braintree even reduced
police presence to cut down on costs. Dave & Buster's actually filed a motion to
reduce the police presence at Dave & Buster's Braintree a few months after there was a
liquor license suspension hearing. Police officers argued that there was a
public safety need at Dave & Buster's Braintree and asked that police presence not be
reduced. But, Dave & Buster's request was granted and months later someone was
stabbed at Dave & Buster's Braintree.
Why would Dave & Buster's want to reduce the number of police when they already know full well
how violent their facilities can be? They wouldn't want the police around scaring off the lucrative
drunks would they?
See, we suspect that Dave & Buster's would rather have their own
poorly trained private security in charge so they can maintain control and help cover
up anything that goes wrong. That way if anything happens Dave &
Buster's can just try to manipulate the situation to their advantage.
Cops follow their own set of rules, the rule of law, and, being that there is so much illegal
activity going on at Dave & Buster's, a bunch of potential John McClanes snooping around could
pose a serious problem to the Dave & Buster's gameplan, because they would have no idea what
police will and will not tolerate.
Dave & Buster's will usually do whatever it takes to make more money. They just don't want to
get caught red-handed doing anything illegal. That is the only thing that keeps them even remotely
in line. If the police didn't have to be there, we highly doubt Dave & Buster's would want them
to be there at all.
Dave & Buster's are currently preparing to open a new facility in Vernon Hills. Dave &
misled the Vernon Hills village board by making it
appear as if their facilities were not dangerous. But, the police chief and
numerous board members raised concerns and eventually they were able to prohibit guns from being
allowed inside that facility.
Lane DeYoung, Dave & Buster's corporate associate general council, said that Dave &
Buster's usually allows guns inside their facilities except where prohibited by law. Mr.
DeYoung also stated that Dave & Buster's never had any issues
with concealed weapons in their restaurants located in the home state of Texas but he
conveniently failed to mention the gun violence that occurred inside Dave & Buster's Arcadia, where one guest was
shot dead at the bar.
Mr. DeYoung also failed to mention the Dave & Buster's
Houston shootout, which occurred in Texas. We guess that incidents involving unconcealed
weapons outside Dave & Buster's locations don't count to Mr. DeYoung, which is probably the
exact reason Mr. DeYoung worded his statements the way he did. He simply tried to
trick everyone into thinking that Dave & Buster's is safer than it really is and Mr.
DeYoung's trickery personifies the way Dave & Buster's tailors most of their media
correspondences, constantly and deliberaly omitting critical information.
Dave & Buster's are also
preparing to open a new facility in Woburn. Alderman Darlene Mercer-Bruen asked Dave &
Buster's if they have ever lost one of their liquor licenses due to underage drinking or other
infractions. The eventual response from Dave & Buster's representatives was, "no D&B
location has ever had a license stripped away, though in two instances it has been punished with
temporary suspensions, due to issues unrelated to serving alcohol to minors."
Dave & Buster's representatives simply misled everyone like usual. Their Maple
Grove store liquor license was suspended for two days because they got caught selling to a
minor in an undercover sting. Dave & Buster's Hawaii was also
fined $2,000 for getting busted selling to a minor. Dave & Buster's even got busted
selling to a minor in another undercover
sting at their Marietta location on April 26, 2013, just months before Dave & Buster's
issued their response.
In 2011, Dave & Buster's
paid out 1.5 million dollars to the family of a 20 year old man, Joseph Borselio, who
was struck and killed by a drunk driver. The plantiffs in the case alleged that Dave
& Buster's West Nyack overserved the driver that killed Mr. Borselio and felt that Dave &
Buster's should be held accountable. The driver, Douglas Moore, plead guilty and was sentenced to a
four-year prison sentence. Tests indicated that he had a .21 blood-alcohol content the night
of the crash.
Dave & Buster's tried to use their lawyers to silence the media, by filing a motion to block
media coverage. But, shortly thereafter, Dave & Buster's decided to settle, paying the
plantiffs 1.5 million dollars. After agreeing to a confidential settlement agreement, the
truth was swept under the rug.
If Dave & Buster's had nothing to hide, then why did they agree to a settlement right
before the jury selection process was getting ready to begin? Why would a company as cheap as Dave
& Buster's pay out that much money before trial without even putting up a real fight?
Why did Dave &
Buster's try to block media
We think the reason Dave & Buster's settled is because the plantiffs in the case would
have revealed a lot of information that Dave & Buster's didn't want out in the open,
because, according to what we have read, there appeared to be a lot of witnesses prepared
to testify that the driver that killed Mr. Borselio was visibly intoxicated while being served at
Dave & Buster's West Nyack.
We also suspect that Dave & Buster's reached that settlement in 2011 because they were already
considering making an initial public offering the next year and didn't want any bad
publicity during the time period directly preceeding their stock going public, because
it would have been horrible for
business if the press caught onto their history of reckless and negligent
In 2012, when Dave & Buster's filed paperwork with the Securities and Exchange Commission
they severely downplayed their alcohol problems. They also stated that they have to follow
very strict gaming regulations when they do not. So, Dave & Buster's lied
to and misled the Securities and Exchange
The truth is that Dave & Buster's
knows that they overserve their guests constantly and that is what causes their
locations to be so dangerous. People have died at Dave & Buster's locations and
the Dave & Buster's corporation has systematically tried to silence anyone
who tries to expose them for what they really are. Dave & Buster's will even
petition yelp to remove negative reviews, while at the same time a Dave & Buster's
marketing manager was caught writing five star yelp
Outside of this website, the Dave & Buster's information suppression network controls
virtually the entire flow of Dave & Buster's related information. Dave & Buster's has even
used their staff to create propaganda online,
propaganda that makes them look good publicly. But, there are just too many yelp reviews to hide
Dave & Buster's removes comments
and posts from their Facebook page. They request to have yelp reviews removed. They try to
intimidate staff that speak out. They have an anti-videotaping policy and no cameras in their
midways, which limits people from collecting evidence against them. Dave & Buster's corporate
will even cover up criminal
activities that occur at their facilities and corproate stonewalls practically
When people with disabilities were having problems accessing two particular Dave &
Buster's locations, due to certain sections of those facilities being wheelchair
inaccessible, they could not get a hold of Dave & Buster's and actually
to sue Dave & Buster's just to try to get them to take action. The plantiffs said
they didn't want to sue Dave & Buster's but had no choice because Dave &
Buster's wouldn't return their calls. One guest even had 300,000 tickets disappear from his
registered powercard and he was stonewalled by
corporate and never received his missing tickets back.
Dave & Buster's corporate even stonewalls the media. If you look over news stories pertaining
to Dave & Buster's, over and over again you see that Dave & Buster's corporate
will usually not return phone calls unless they want to. If there is any risk that the person
calling them may ask them the wrong questions, they will probably just play dumb and
not answer the phone.
Whereas Chuck E. Cheese was very open with guests and the media regarding the violent
incidents that were occurring at their facilities, Dave & Buster's just likes to stonewall
the media instead. That is probably because, whereas Chuck E. Cheese spent over fifteen million
dollars to attempt to rectify the issues they were having, Dave & Buster's knows that they have
done very little to stop problems from occurring at their facilities. Dave & Buster's
also knows that there is almost nothing they can say or do to easily correct
their problems, due to the way their facilities are designed and constructed.
What many Dave & Buster's locations have essentially become is a poorly managed, run-down,
wannabe casino with little oversight, broken games, low payouts, theft of winnings, drunk customers, unsupervised children, terrible
food, long wait times, poorly trained staff, under age drinking, lacksidaisical security, crooked managers, bartenders overserving, and a bunch of criminals
preying on the naive customers unfortunate enough to travel there.
A lot of people, due to their own naivety and lack of information, think that everything
that happens at Dave & Buster's is an accident and that Dave & Buster's is just unlucky.
Some things are just bad luck. But,
Dave & Buster's only has a little over 60 facilities. They aren't Chuck E. Cheese, that has
over 500 facilities, wherein it can be hard to keep a watchful eye on everything.
Dave & Buster's corporate is simply negligent and doesn't usually care about what is
going on at their facilities and that is what is leading to so many dangerous situations occurring at Dave & Buster's
locations. Wait until Dave & Buster's expands their "Dave & Buster's Universe" to 150+
locations, like they hope to. Imagine what will happen then?
The entire Dave & Buster's system is broken because Dave & Buster's attempts to
cater to two totally different demographics: adults and children. It is very hard to do that at a
bar and it just doesn't work when a location is not properly managed and staff are
systematically allowed to violate the policies, which at Dave & Buster's is often the case.
Below we have compiled our
evidence that proves definitively that the Dave & Buster's corporation has a
long history of overserving their guests, that Dave & Buster's locations have become
a magnet for criminal activity, that Dave & Buster's locations are often extremely
violent, and that the Dave & Buster's corporation is extremely negligent in the way they
So, because of this, we will be informing
new towns what Dave & Buster's is really like every time Dave &

After A Liquor License Suspension Dave
& Buster's Milipitas Is Still Over Serving Their
It is a proven fact that Dave &
Buster's will over serve their guests to make more money. Drunk customers lead to bigger profits,
because not only do they buy more drinks but they also spend more money playing broken
We recently went through all the yelp reviews of Dave & Buster's Milipitas and searched
specifically for evidence that Dave & Buster's Milipitas was over serving their guests and
allowing that location to become extremely dangeorus.
We discovered that the local police know how bad it is at Dave & Buster's
Milipitas and that they have even placed a sobriety check point near Dave & Buster's
Milipitas to catch drunk drivers. It is so bad at Dave & Buster's Milipitas that in early 2010
the Dave & Buster's Milipitas liquor license was suspended
for 10 days.
The news story regarding the suspension did not mention the exact reason the liquor
license was suspended at Dave & Buster's Milipitas and Dave & Buster's Milipitas
manager Charlie Cook would not explain to the media why the liquor license was suspended there
either. But, three different yelp reviewers gave three different explanations regarding
why the liquor license was suspended at Dave & Buster's Milipitas for 10 days in 2010.
One guest stated that the liquor license was suspended because an under age guest got extremely
intoxicated there. One guest stated that the license was suspended because Dave &
Buster's Milipitas was serving watered down drinks. Another guest stated that a waiter told
them that the license was suspended because guests were getting too drunk. Take your pick.
After examing all of the yelp reviews of Dave & Buster's Milipitas regarding this issue we have
come to the conclusion that any of the three guests' explanations could have been the reason the
liquor license was suspended at Dave & Buster's Milipitas.
Countless customers reported receiving watered down drinks. Customers reported under age
drinking. Customers reported a lot of fights occurring there. Customers also reported that
people would gather in the parking lot in masse and that fights would break out in the parking lot,
with one guest even reporting that there was a fight that involved throwing broken glass. Dave
& Buster's actually agreed to the terms of the suspension and did not fight it. What does that
We have looked over all of the yelp reviews relating to guests getting extremely intoxicated at
Dave & Buster's Milipitas and it appears like the bartenders at Dave & Buster's are
horribly trained. One guest stated that there is a crew of ~50 bartenders that rotates constantly.
We have also read that the bartender turnover rate at Dave & Buster's Milipitas is extremely
Another factor is that the bartenders at Dave & Buster's Milipitas appear to play
favoritism. One female guest stated that if customers flirt with the bartenders they may get
"eff-me-up" style drinks. The drinks do not usually appear to be measured and over pouring is
extremely common, which inadvertently can cause guests to consume more alcohol than they
intended to, which can lead to accidental over intoxication, driving under the influence charges,
car crashes, and vehicular homicides.
At the same time, we read widespread reports that the drinks are often weak and watered down at
Dave & Buster's Milipitas. We even read that a Dave & Buster's staff member told a guest
that Dave & Buster's has a (obviously off the books) practice of intentionally watering
down their drinks to increase profits and reduce liquor costs. One guest even stated that
staff forgot to put alcohol in her drink and only put it in after being reminded to do so.
So, if you suspect your Dave & Buster's cocktails are being watered down just switch
to beer, wine, or shots, because they cannot be watered down. If you do decide to drink
liquor or a cocktail at Dave & Buster's Milipitas, make sure to order it neat to prevent any
shenanigans involving excessive ice being placed in your glass, because we read that staff at Dave
& Buster's Milipitas may fill the glass with excessive ice to lower liquor costs, especially
during happy hour. We also discovered that some bartenders may not even fill the glasses all the
way up, possibly even leaving an inch of space at the top of the
As usual, it is most likely poor management that is to blame, management that typically turns a
blind eye to anything illegal or disreputable going on to increase revenues. Dave & Buster's
managers will often just hire the people they can pay the least so that they can cut back on
staffing expenses and that often leads to a lack of consistency, which explains how bartenders
can simultaneously over pour and serve watered down drinks.
On top of all the issues with inconsistent pouring, according to one guest Dave & Buster's
doesn't even put prices on their drinks menu. Dave & Buster's staff may also mislead guests on
the prices of drinks. One guest stated that a particular margarita deal only applied to the
standard magarita, that her waitress didn't inform her and her friends that the deal
didn't apply to the other margarita flavors, and that caused her and her friends to accidentally
purchase exorbitantly priced margaritas by accident.
Unless it is happy hour or there is a special going on, the prices on drinks are extremely
expensive at Dave & Buster's and guest are often shocked when they finally receive their
bill. Many guests wanting to get hammered go to Dave & Buster's specifically during
happy hour and get totally blitzed because shots are half off.
Happy hour is also misleading. From what we have read the half priced happy hour special does not
apply to beer or wine. So, guests should take note of that too. At Dave & Buster's Milipitas
during late night happy hour customers may even have to get aggressive at the bar to get a drink,
by pushing other people out of the way, which can lead to violent altercations and unruly
What is remarkable is that even after their liquor license suspension guests were still going
to Dave & Buster's Milipitas to get drunk. It appears that Dave & Buster's Milipitas tried
to lay low directly after they were busted, which would partially explain the reports of watered
down drinks, but recidivism is resillient and Dave & Buster's Milipitas is back to their
old tricks, getting guests drunk once again.
Alcohol isn't the only issue at Dave & Buster's Milipitas. Over crowding can also be a huge
issue. On busy nights there are often lines at the games and at the bar. One guest even stated that
when they went to Dave & Buster's Milipitas there was a line of 200 people wrapped around
the building as customers lined up to get in.
From what we have read Dave & Buster's Milipitas can get extremely crowed on busy nights
and it can be difficult to navigate the facility when it is crowded. Dave & Buster's often
likes to use their own crowd management policies and likes to bypass local crowd management
ordinances if possible, which partially explains why their locations get so packed and out of
Dave & Buster's Milipitas will charge up to a $10 cover charge to enter their facility on
certain busier nights, simply because they can get away with it, given they will
probably reach maximum capacity either way. They may even charge the cover charge again
if a guest has to leave an re-enter.
Dave & Buster's Milipitas has the perception of being somewhat of a nightclub, with
one guest even stating that there was a dance floor there, so charging a cover charge gives Dave
& Buster's Milipitas even more of a nightclub vibe.
Foreign guests may have problems getting into Dave & Buster's Milipitas because they do not
accept passports as valid identification there. So, that essentially means foreigners on vacation
cannot gain entry there by themselves or go there to drink, which could be considered
discrimination. One Asian guest even accused staff there of racial profiling.
We specifically focused on collecting yelp evidence pertaining to issues with alcohol abuse at Dave
& Buster's Milipitas. But, at Dave & Buster's Milipitas there were widespread
reports of terrible food, hideous customer service, broken games, long wait times,
and all of the regular usual suspects.

|Dave & Buster's Marketing Manager
Popeye Vasquez, The D&B Irvine Marketing
Manager, Caught Writing 5-Star D&B Yelp
Recently we revealed that
Dave & Buster's can petition to yelp to have negative yelp reviews removed. But, we
also caught a Dave & Buster's marketing manager writing
fake five star yelp reviews of Dave & Buster's.
When we were creating our Dave & Buster's negative yelp review
database, while we were reading over the reviews of Dave & Buster's Boise, we
noticed a very bizarre five star review created by a yelp reviewer named "Popeye
The review just seemed like a fake review. So, on a hunch, we clicked on Popeye's profile and
noticed that he also reviewed two other Dave & Buster's locations on yelp, giving them both
five star reviews. In each review Popeye wrote he made it appear as if Dave &
Buster's was the greatest place on earth, which just simply isn't the case.
So, we clicked on the events Popeye posted and they were all related to Dave & Buster's.
We did a little searching on google and discovered that the marketing manager at Dave &
Buster's Irvine was named Popeye Vasquez. It ended up being the same Popeye V. that created the
five star Dave & Buster's yelp reviews.
Popeye Vasquez did not mention that he worked as the marketing manager at Dave & Buster's
Irvine in any of his yelp reviews of Dave & Buster's. But, in the Dave & Buster's
Management Handbook it states point blank that when posting content on the internet
management must identify their affiliation with Dave & Buster's if they are discussing anything
regarding Dave & Buster's.
How can a Dave & Buster's marketing manager review Dave & Buster's without bias?
Doesn't Popeye Vasquez have a serious conflict of interest if he is writing reviews
of Dave & Buster's, the same company he is paid to promote?
Companies have been fined a lot of money
recently for paying people to create fake reviews of their company, because it is
considered false advertising. Popeye is getting paid by Dave & Buster's to market their
company. So, technically, by Popeye Vasquez, the marketing manager at Dave & Buster's
Irvine, reviewing Dave & Buster's on yelp and giving them five stars in every single
review he wrote, that could be construed as Dave & Buster's paying for their own five star yelp
reviews to improve their yelp rating, especially because one of Popeye's reviews directly impacted
the overall yelp star rating of Dave & Buster's Boise, being that only seven other people
reviewed that location.
We're curious what the Federal Trade Commission would have to say about this, given that
Popeye Vasquez is totally busted. We're also curious what the Federal Trade Commission would
have to say about the r/DaveAndBusters
subreddit that Eric Minion, the midway manager at Dave & Buster's
Pittsburgh, operated for an extended period of time.
Dave & Buster's staff like to engage in a lot of deceptive business practices over the
internet it seems. Dave & Buster's even misled customers on their official
Facebook page by implying that the televised pay per view fights were free to watch.
After looking over Popeye's events posts we noticed that Dave & Buster's originally had
the prices listed on their fight promo photos but then started removing the prices as
time went on. Why is that? Do they make more money by luring their customers to their
establishments under false pretenses? Why would they remove the prices when they had
them listed on the promo photos originally? This proves that not listing the
prices is not an oversight and that Dave & Buster's intentionally removed the prices
for some reason. Dave & Buster's would not answer guests' questions regarding how much it
costs to watch the fights. We wonder why that is?
We should also mention that during our yelp investigation we discovered that if a fight takes
place in Vegas and you pay to watch that fight at Dave & Buster's on the east coast that Dave
& Buster's will close regardless of whether or not the fight has ended. So, take that into
account before traveling to Dave & Buster's to watch a fight if you live on the east coast. We
even discovered that Dave & Buster's borrows graphics from other companies to use on their
Facebook page for marketing purposes.
This all makes us a little curious as to what other Dave & Buster's staff members are doing on
the internet. If Dave & Buster's will mislead customers on their official Facebook page, what
will staff do behind the scenes? Does Dave & Buster's corporate ever punish their staff for
doing anything that violates policy?

|Registered Powercards Are Not
300,000 Tickets Disappear From A Powercard
And D&B Refuses To Refund The "Lost"
We stumbled upon an older Dave &
Buster's Facebook post from 2011. That post outlines a story regarding a customer, Nathan
Walter, going to Dave & Buster's one day to discover that 300,000 tickets disappeared from his registered
Nathan suspected that a crooked Dave & Buster's staff member noticed his high powercard ticket
balance, took note of his powercard number, and then later covertly
removed 300,000 tickets from his account and transferred them to another powercard using the
After complaining at his location and getting no results, Nathan contacted Dave & Buster's corporate and they conducted an
investigation. At the end of their investigation corporate said, "our investigations are done
internally and we cannot release that information."
At that point, Nathan never received his 300,000 tickets back and Dave &
Buster's stonewalled him, giving him the cold shoulder on Facebook, like they usually do to other disgruntled customers that Dave
& Buster's has ripped off, harassed, or wronged.
Corporate wouldn't even respond to Nathan's Facebook post, yet they responded to someone else's
comment below him in that same post. So, Dave & Buster's obviously knew about
Nathan's plight and chose to ignore him.
This story basically proves that the entire rewards
system is virtually worthless. This story also makes it appear as if Dave & Buster's staff
can steal from customers with impunity, knowing that corporate will often cover things up and
stonewall guests. Contacting corporate, allowing corporate to launch an investigation, really just
gives Dave & Buster's corporate time to cover things up.
In the end, since Dave & Buster's will often try to silence anyone who speaks out against them
or use their muscle to intimidate people, most guests have no easy recourse if they have any
serious issues regarding tickets disappearing from their registered powercards.
So, as always, we suggest that if guests have a problem at Dave & Buster's they contact
the Better Business Bureau, the police, the state police, the Federal Trade Commission, an
attorney, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Federal
Bureau of Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency, Interpol, the Ghostbusters, the Secret
Service, the Parent Teachers Association, the Securities And Exchange Commission, local gaming
regulators, the health control board, Alcohol Beverage Control, or the state attorney general.
Never call corporate!
Another thing you can do to deter the theft of your tickets is to never tell anyone at
Dave & Buster's how many tickets are on your registered powercard and try to
deal with as few staff members as possible when using your registered powercard,
especially if you have a registered powercard with an extremely high ticket balance.
For instance, if you found one trustworthy front desk staff member at your location, you
could add all of your tickets to an unregistered powercard as you play and then later transfer
those tickets to your registered powercard using that one staff member you trust.
That way only one staff member would ever know how many tickets you really have. Since that staff
member would work at the front desk, they probably wouldn't interact with the staff in the
midway and rumors of a player with a bunch of tickets on their powercard would probably
not surface. Since you could just transfer the tickets to your registered powercard
each week, there would be minimal risks related to you adding your tickets to an
unregistered powercard, being that your tickets wouldn't be on that unregistered powercard for very
long. Plus, if your tickets ever disappeared from your registered powercard you would have a very
good idea who was involved.
We also suggest placing any high balance powercards in a radio-frequency identification (RFID)
wallet to ensure their safe keeping, especially in big cities.

|Playstation 4 Release On Hold At Dave &
Dave & Buster's Locations Will Not Stock Playstation 4 Until Playstation 3
Inventory Is Gone
In case there are any Dave &
Buster's advantage players out there who haven't been entrapped, framed, banned on false
accusations, or eliminated in some other manner, we figured we would fill you in on what has
been going on at Dave & Buster's recently.
According to the Dave & Buster's Facebook page, Dave & Buster's stated that the Playstation
4 should arrive at their locations near the end of November and will cost 105,000 tickets. The
X-Box One will cost 130,000 tickets whenever they get that in.
However, not all Dave & Buster's locations may get
the newer prize variants in immediately, because Dave & Buster's will not usually
stock the newer variant of a prize until the old inventory has been totally depleted. Not all Dave
& Buster's locations stock the same prizes either and the prices on prizes have been known to
vary slightly between Dave & Buster's locations as well.
At Dave & Buster's there are large and small format stores. At smaller stores there are usually
less customers and less tickets won. So, at smaller stores there are often less people with enough
tickets to purchase the higher priced prizes to eliminate them from the inventory.
When new product variants are about to be released customers will often totally stop
purchasing the old units, because they are waiting for the new versions to be released. In these
instances, since most customers don't usually want to purchase the older prize variants at
full price, often those prizes just sit on the shelves indefinitely because the cheapskates at
Dave & Buster's are often reluctant to lower the price on the older models to eliminate
that older inventory faster. At some Dave & Buster's locations it can take up to four months,
or possibly longer, for older products to be eliminated from the inventory, allowing new
product updates to take their place.
To prevent this from occurring in the future Dave & Buster's could stop stocking older
products right before a new product launch and they could just make those prizes special
order, like the iPads, during the few months before a new product launch. Dave & Buster's
could also just reduce the inventory of those items down to one unit at a time right before a new
product launch as well. If a product remains in a winner's circle for a really long time,
occasionally Dave & Buster's will lower the price on it until it sells. But, that is very
Dave & Buster's also advertised a new promotion called Everyone Wins but due to technical difficulties the promotion was placed on hold. Don't
get too excited. The promotion is basically just a gimmick designed to entice customers to spend
The top two prize variants were 10,000 tickets (1/2000) and 300 chips (1/2000). Most of the
prizes (~45%) were $20 BOGO coupons, which aren't that much better of a deal than buying $100 Mega
Play deals, so long as the coupons are used in the proper manner.
Using a $20 BOGO coupon a customer will spend $20 to get $40 in gameplay. But, remember
that, based off the 30% target payback rate, on $40 spent Dave & Buster's will usually pay back
$12 in prizes. So, technically, with each $20 BOGO coupon used Dave & Buster's should
make an $8 profit by default. Plus, they will usually make a lot of
money by selling customers overpriced food and beverages as well.
Understand that this whole promotion is also based off the rewards program actually
working properly and the front desk personnel actually operating the terminals properly,
which is often not the case.
So, in the end, Dave & Buster's should really just call their new promotion We Win, because
even after paying out a few piddling prizes here or there, Dave & Buster's
will inevitably make much more money by ripping their customers off once they lure them
into their insidious trap.
When we were examining the prizes Dave & Buster's was giving away in their Everyone Wins
promotion, Dave & Buster's placed a monetary value beside each prize. What we
found highly odd is that Dave & Buster's values
10,000 tickets at $40.00, when in the past 10,000 tickets were valued at $50.00. So, it appears
as if the value of the tickets has depreciated twenty percent.
We are curious what this is attributed to and it calls into question the integrity of the entire
powercard system, because the prices of prizes has been rising and the value of the tickets appears
to be declining.
Dave & Buster's keeps opening more and more stores and more tickets keep being won nationwide
because of this. But, at the same time Dave & Buster's has also tightened the games nationwide.
So, multiple factors could be involved in this issue and figuring out exactly what is going on
could be difficult.
If our suspicions about Jerek Gonzales turn out to be true, that could be a major factor in
all of this. Jerek said that Dave & Buster's staff told him that he was the direct reason the
prices of prizes were increased nationwide.
If it turns out that Jerek was acting as a fence and selling powercards with phantom tickets loaded
on to them by crooked staff, it basically means that Dave & Buster's staff stole from the
customers at Dave & Buster's in a manner that caused the value of their powercard ticket
balances to decrease in value.
If that is the case, why should that money come out of the paying customer's pockets? It wouldn't
be their fault if Dave & Buster's hired thieving staff and has little oversight. Why
should the customers have to pay more for their prizes on account of crooked staff scamming them?
Would corporate try to sweep something like that under the rug like usual?
In other news, Dave & Buster's also mentioned a holiday deal that affords players a free $10
voucher with every $25 gift card purchased. The deal may or may not be offered at every Dave &
Buster's location. You can see how this type of deal works by traveling to our mathematics section and viewing the section regarding holiday

We Now Have New Suspicions Regarding

|A Dave & Buster's Manager Condones Ticket
A Player's Tickets Are Stolen And Dave
& Buster's Staff On Duty Does Nothing To Stop It
Unfortunately the theft of tickets
is extraordinarily common at Dave & Buster's. If you set your tickets down and turn your
back for even a brief moment those tickets could be stolen. Some shady customers have even been
known to run little con games wherein one person distracts a player while another person
steals their tickets.
We would like to remind players that stealing tickets is a very serious offense and it is not taken
lightly by Arcade Revolution. Even the theft of one ticket could be grounds for an authoritrian
arcade to ban a player. So, we advise players to look but not touch when they are coveting
another player's tickets.
Ticket theft has gotten so bad that we suggest casual players write their names on their ticket
cups with a pen as a theft deterrent. That way if another player sees the cup they will at
least know they belong to someone else.
If advantage players have problems with ticket theft, we suggest they acquire a fabric loot sack
for their tickets and put their name on it. A trash bag would also work. If using a trash bag, we
suggest using a 55+ gallon black contractor bag. That way you can just reuse it with minimal
risk of it tearing.
Black trash bags, in particular, are a good theft deterrent because other thieving guests
won't be able to see what is inside of it. Players could also just get a prize bag from the
prize center to store their tickets too, if they don't want to go the trashbag route.
Women could carry a giant purse to store their tickets. If they do that, they should make sure to
not get their tickets tangled in with their keys or other objects in their purses, as one player
actually had their keys shredded at a Dave & Buster's location before by accident.
During blokassassin's prize giveaway he went around the midway randomly placing prizes, like
pixie stix and teddy bears, on tables at Dave & Buster's Pittsburgh. He noticed that
customers would usually take the prizes without asking.
Another time he placed a cup full of tickets on a table just to see if they would
be taken. The ticket cup disappeared within a very short period of time. Once, he even
had a child distract him while another child stole his tickets but the children's mother noticed
the scam and returned the tickets to him.
Often, blokassassin would find free credits on games like Cyclone. When he did, he would just
play the game and no matter what the outcome was, he would just walk away after playing
it. When he won the jackpot and walked away without taking any of the tickets, shortly
thereafter the tickets would just disappear, being harvested by a random ticket thief.
We should remind players that the theft of even one ticket is still theft. If you steal even one
ticket at Dave & Buster's that could technically be considered larceny of an item
valued at half a cent. You always hear stories about people getting in trouble for shoplifting
bubblegum. So, don't be that person who gets caught stealing tickets.
One tickets is usually all it takes. It starts off as stealing one ticket. Then, people could raise
the stakes by stealing a stream of tickets, then a cup. Pretty soon they could be stealing
trashbags of tickets and serving hard time in the county jail, because tickets have a real monetary
value. Stealing a ticket is gateway theft and, through gradualism, could lead players to a life of
If you ever find a ticket at an arcade and want to claim it you should alert arcade staff to
its presence. If they allow you to keep it then at that point you usually cannot be
held responsible for taking it.
But, if you want to be really litigious you could contact the police and report that you discovered
that ticket. At that point, after a certain period of time elapses, police may allow you to keep
that ticket. At that point the ticket would be legally and officially yours to keep
Players should also watch out for arcade staff stealing their prizes and placing them back in the
prize center. Arcade staff have been known to take prizes they find lying around and place them
back in the prize center so that they can sell them again. So, players need to watch out for that
Players should also take care to note that if they ever find a machine dispensing "free
tickets" it is highly probably that those tickets belong to another player and that player
just went to the bathroom or to get a technician. So, don't just think it is your lucky day if
you ever find a game dispensing "free tickets". If you saw an ATM machine spitting out free money
and took it, that would be considered theft by many, especially the owner of the ATM
Fights have been known to break out at arcades over
ticket disputes. So, don't ever put yourself in an awkward situation, especially at
arcades, like Dave & Buster's Arcadia, that are frequented by asian gangsters. At violent
arcades, a few tickets in your pocket could turn into a bullet in your rib cage.
Recently at Dave & Buster's Arcadia a man named Kei Hsu had his
tickets stolen from him. He saw who did it but the perpetrators ran to the Winner's
Circle and added them to their powercard before he could stop them. At that point, as the
perpetrators were pointing and laughing at him from inside the Winner's Circle, he tried to
get management to intervent.
A manager, Scott, said that since staff didn't witness the people steal the
tickets, and since there were no cameras in the midway, there was nothing they could do about
it. At that point Scott said there was basically nothing that Dave &
Buster's could do to prevent customers from going around stealing other customer's tickets.
According to Kei, Scott, the manager at Dave & Buster's Arcadia, condoned ticket
This all raises a lot of questions about Dave & Buster's lacksidaisical security protocols.
What if the tickets stolen are in a woman's purse? What if they are in a guest's pocket? One
woman's daugher had her souvenier bag and cell phone stolen from her while at the Orlando Dave
& Buster's and management was disrespectful to her and her daughter, treating them like they
did something wrong.
Dave & Buster's is very nonchalant about the theft of tickets, because it happens so
frequently. This issue is absolutely widespread and Dave & Buster's usually treats it like it
is no big deal whatsoever. That is because most Dave & Buster's managers don't
have the courage to punish the offenders, often resorting to cowardice and indecision
Kei complained about this horrible situation on the Dave & Buster's Facebook page and worked
with another manager at Dave & Buster's Arcadia to resolve the situation. But, while Kei was
there Dave & Buster's Arcadia did nothing to help him. It was only after he blew the whistle on
the Dave & Buster's Facebook page that he got results. He also filed a complaint with
the local police.
Apparently, ticket theft is no big deal to Dave & Buster's corporate either. On their official
Facebook page they recently awarded a guest
a free gift card for taking tickets that were dispensing out of a broken game. What does that
So, let this be a lesson. If anything bad ever happens to you at Dave & Buster's just go to the
police. Then, go and complain on the Dave & Buster's Facebook page. That formula seems to be
the best way to get results.
Christopher Gray will actually be using this approach in the near future and will be going to the
police to file charges against the crooked staff at Dave & Buster's Pittsburgh. He will also be
filing a complaint in person with the Better Business Bureau and will be contacting any other
agencies that may be interested in hearing what he has to say.
Months ago Mr. Gray filed a complaint against Dave & Buster's Pittsburgh with both the Better
Business Bureau and the Federal Trade Commission online. But, he hasn't heard back from them yet.
He even filed a complaint with the American Civil Liberties Union.
The American Civil Liberties Union told Mr. Gray that they usually only handle cases involving
discrimination cases against a large group of people and told Mr. Gray that he should talk to
an attorney instead.
Currently, Mr. Gray is considering their advice and is thinking about filing a class action lawsuit against the Dave &
Buster's corporation on behalf of the tens of thousands of customers and staff members the Dave
& Buster's corporation has ripped off and abused over the course of years, due to the Dave
& Buster's corporation's reckless, negligent, and criminal ways.
Mr. Gray actually called the Homestead Police Department a few months back and left
them a message to alert them to what was going on at Dave & Buster's Pittsburgh but his
phone call was never returned. This time he will be compiling his evidence and filing charges in
person to make sure the job gets handled properly.
Mr. Gray has become fed up with the Dave & Buster's corporation's attempts to silence him. His
blokavenger reddit account was recently
prohibited from posting and commenting on reddit for reasons he still doesn't understand.
His blokavenger reddit account also appears like it has been deleted but he never deleted
So, he will just let the authorities sort things out, being that the Dave & Buster's
corporation has proven time and again that they will not rectify the situation or punish anyone
involved with him being targeted for elimination at Dave & Buster's Pittsburgh.
Dave & Buster's corporate even prohibited Christopher Gray from calling them to state his
case and prove his innocence. So, that should give you a little insight into how the Dave
& Buster's corporation really conducts
|The Most Dangerous Arcade In
A Security Checkpoint, Cover Charges,
Shootings, Asian Gangsters, And Theft
Dave & Buster's Arcadia is one of
the absolute most dangerous arcades in the United States, if not the world. We recently went
through all of the yelp reviews for Dave & Buster's Arcadia and discovered that it is a
facility in a total state of decay.
Due to a high prevalence of asian gangsters at Dave & Buster's Arcadia, it makes the location
extremely dangerous. There was a
shooting at Dave & Buster's Arcadia around 2007.
That incident caused Dave & Buster's Arcadia to force guests entering the facility during
certain hours to pass through an identification check and massive security checkpoint, which
is often staffed by sheriffs. Guests are also subjected to a bag & purse check, a pat
down, and have to empty their pockets and often lift up their shirts before entering the compound
during certain hours. But, even after the security was tightened, a man was shot dead at the Dave
& Buster's Arcadia bar around 2010.
One thing that we find highly disturbing is that when the security checkpoint is up and
running Dave & Buster's staff will not allow guests to bring in mace and
actually encourage guests to hide their mace in the bushes in front of the
store before entering and then later retrieve it, which is reckless and grossly irresponsible
on Dave & Buster's Arcadia's part.
If mace was found in the bushes and discovered by a child that could lead to a potentially
dangerous situation. So, Dave & Buster's Arcadia should install a mace deposit box or a
mini locker system near the security checkpoint, so guests can store prohibited items
before entering. Plus, the cheapskates at Dave & Buster's Arcadia could charge guests for
temporarily storing their mace and other prohibited items, which would allow Dave &
Buster's to line their pockets even more than they already do.
On top of all this, Dave & Buster's Arcadia charges a $3 cover charge to enter their
facility after 10 P.M. on Friday and Saturday nights. When the customer pays the cover charge they
are given a worthless non-rechargeable VIP powercard that has seven non-redempton chips on it,
usually enough for only one swipe.
It can also take 20-30 minutes to find a parking spot at Dave & Buster's Arcadia too. If
customers park in valet parking, it could take them just as long to park. So, there is little point
to use the valet parking system there, because once guests go through the effort and hassle of
parking valet, it could take them the same amount of time to park as usual.
A lot of the games at Dave & Buster's Arcadia are reportedly broken as well. According to many
yelp users, the service at Dave & Buster's Arcadia is slow, the food is bad, and the
drinks are weak. Management has also been reported to be extremely rude to guests. Guests
may even fall victim to mistreatment by racist staff at Dave & Buster's Arcadia as
The bathrooms are often putrid and covered in puke and there is often no toilet paper in
the ladies room during busy hours as well. Menus and booths may be
filthy too. Staff may even allow guests to smoke in the bathrooms with impunity,
which violates California state law. We even read that a guest was tasered standing near Deal
Or No Deal.
Tickets were even stolen from a guest at Dave & Buster's
Arcadia and management staffed that day did nothing to rectify the situation with the customer
while they were there. One manager even stated that guests can basically go around stealing tickets
and there is nothing Dave & Buster's can do to stop them from doing that, which is a
reprehensible thing for a Dave & Buster's manager to say.
We find it ironic that Dave & Buster's Arcadia subjects guests to a cover charge, pat
down, and bag search, just to enter their facility to often play broken games, get bad service, and
deal with mistreatment by staff, while also having to deal with asian gangsters and violence.
Players that survive playing at Dave & Buster's Arcadia should consider themselves lucky.
In the end, Dave & Buster's Arcadia is one of the worst Dave & Buster's locations in
existence and is a prime candidate for our Worst Arcade In America Award (2013). We advise people
to think twice before considering traveling to Dave & Buster's Arcadia, especially
considering that there are two other Dave & Buster's locations and a Game Works location nearby.
Dave & Buster's Arcadia isn't the only Dave & Buster's location in total disarray. If you
travel to yelp you can view thousands of Dave & Buster's
horror stories from disenfranchised players. All you need to do is log on to yelp, search for a
particular Dave & Buster's location, then sort the reviews by reverse rating. A lot of horrible
Dave & Buster's reviews can also be found on the tripadvisor website.

into categories to make it easier to understand how wretched Dave & Buster's Arcadia truly

|Discrimination At Dave &
A Native American Man Was Discriminated
Against By Dave & Buster's Staff
Players are harassed at Dave & Buster's locations
across the country constantly. Usually, since there is rarely tangible proof that Dave &
Buster's staff acted towards a guest in an extremely rude and abrasive manner, Dave &
Buster's corporate rarely takes any punitive action against their staff. It is usually a
he-said-she-said ordeal and corporate will almost always take their staff's side of the story for
legal reasons and to protect the company.
A Native American man was recently discriminated against by Dave & Buster's staff at the
Lynnhaven Mall in Virginia Beach. When Rodney Ruiz tried to enter the facility Dave & Buster's
staff would not allow him to enter. They simply stated that because he was wearing a bandanna he
could not enter, which caused Mr. Ruiz to be embarrassed in front of his family and feel
discriminated against. Dave & Buster's staff also stated their zero tolerance
anti-bandanna policy was established by Dave & Buster's corporate.
Rodney Ruiz is not a gangbanger! He is a Native American man that was trying to go out to have a
fun evening with his family. Instead, that fun evening turned into a nightmare, due to staff at
Dave & Buster's Virginia Beach discriminating against Native Americans.
What's next? Will Dave & Buster's start prohibiting people wearing blue shirts from entering
their facilities because they might, possibly, potentially, be affiliated with the crips?

|The Greediest Player In The
One Player Brags About Being Single
Handedly Responsible For The iPad Price Raise At D&B
Over the course of time players have
probably heard stories of blokassassin and mewtwostruckback winning 200,000 tickets each week for
six months straight at Dave & Buster's Pittsburgh playing Tippin' Bloks. In that situation they
struck up an informal gentleman's agreement and decided not to get greedy.
But, one player, Jerek Gonzales, has taken advantage player greed to a level never before
seen. Dave & Buster's staff actually informed Jerek that he was single handedly
responsible for the prize prices being increased at Dave & Buster's locations
nationwide. Jerek even had the nerve to brag about it online.
Little did Jerek know at the time that his greedy and garrulous ways would come back to
haunt him. We started examining all of the posts and claims that Jerek was making
using his reddit hersheycookiescreme
account. But, something didn't add up. Something seemed fishy. So, we did a little snooping
It turns out that Jerek actually struck up a backroom deal with Dave & Buster's staff at his
primary location and admitted to it using his hersheycookiescreme reddit account. That deal
involved him purchasing most or all of his chips at his primary location. He would then win big at
that location and only purchase his prizes at surrounding Dave & Buster's locations, by
constantly roaming his powercards between locations. He was instructed to do that by Dave &
Buster's management at his primary location to make their numbers look good.
But, that's not all. Jerek was also selling Dave & Buster's powercards and tokens on ebay using
his jephs5 ebay account. In his ebay powercard listing descriptions for the tokens he was selling,
he even went so far as to state that the Dave & Buster's tokens could be used at Chuck E.
If Dave & Buster's tokens were used in that manner, that would violate policies at two
different arcades at the same time. We can only assume that he was purchasing the tokens at Dave
& Buster's on a half priced Wednesday and selling them on ebay at a markup. We can't see it any
Selling powercards on ebay is totally against Dave & Buster's policy. We suspect it
is prohibited because it makes tracking where tickets are being won extremely difficult, which can
lead to corruption.
Jerek is so greedy that he even stated that if Dave & Buster's ever went ticketless he
would have no problem winning 864,000+ tickets ($4,320+ worth in prizes) in a twelve hour day if
that ever happened, because he plays one game every 25 seconds and averages over 500
tickets per game (In case people are ever wondering, we suspect this is the actual reason Dave
& Buster's will probably never switch to a ticketless system nationwide. It is just too much of
If Jerek continually played at that rate, theoretically, he could walk into a ticketless
Dave & Buster's and, if he played 365 days a year, in that year he could win $1,576,800+
in prizes over the course of that year, so long as his game was not altered and he did
not take any breaks.
Jerek was making comments on a reddit thread about redditors that make over $100,000 year
and bragging about how he wins up to 4 iPad minis a day playing Skeeball. That is 340,000
tickets ($1,700 worth in prizes) in a day at the current iPad mini price rate. Jerek has no
problem running two to three machines at once either. He also pulls extremely long all day
So, the next time you have to pay more for a prize, the next time you lament your game being
tightened, and the next time you get angry at your game being broken think about Jerek Gonzales and
all the tickets he is winning, all the while violating Dave & Buster's policies, striking up
backroom deals, and sneaking around purchasing prizes in a deceptive manner to game the system.
When the staff at Dave & Buster's are slaving away, pulling a double shift, they should also
think of Jerek Gonzales and how many tickets he is winning. They should think of Jerek winning
$1,700 in prizes a day while they often have no health care. They should think about Jerek
violating Dave & Buster's policies while they often get paid low wages. They should think about
Jerek playing two to three games at once while they are often getting harassed, abused, and
manipulated by other staff members.
If you are wondering how we know all of this it is quite simple. When we began suspecting something
was amiss, we launched an investigation into Jerek Gonzales and examined all his
hersheycookiescreme comments and posts. In one particular comment he linked to his youtube account named "jerek
Then, we searched for "jerek gonzales" on Facebook and that led us to Jerek Gonzales,
located in Torrance, California. Hersheycookiescreme stated he was from Torrance. He also created a
reddit post stating that a buyer on ebay ripped him off in a transaction regarding his sale of 800
We searched ebay completed listings for "800 arcade tokens" and it led us to a seller,
jephs5, located in Torrance, California. We reviewed the user's seller feedback and they sold
a multitude of Dave & Buster's powercards and tokens on ebay. There is no doubt that the jephs5
ebay account is operated by Jerek Gonzales.
This all proves definitively that Jerek Gonzales violated Dave & Buster's policy. We actually
left Dave & Buster's corporate a message explaining this situation months ago to give them
adequate time to conduct an ebay sting, if they so desired. But, since Jerek Gonzales is still
playing and was not punished by Dave & Buster's corporate, we had to take matters into our own
The worst part for Jerek is probably trying to figure out how file his tax forms. Winning
$100,000 a year as an advantage player would be a logistical tax nightmare, especially considering
Jerek sells his iPad minis on craigslist. For his sake, we hope he kept good records and documented
all of his craigslist transactions.
Jerek Gonzales wanted the limelight. He wanted all the attention. He even bragged about
being single handedly responsible for the iPad price increase at Dave & Buster's. So,
in the end, he should actually be thanking us for creating this story glamorizing his greedy ways,
because he is Jerek Gonzales, the greediest player in the world!
Below is all of our evidence against Jerek Gonzales. It has been broken down
into categories to make it easier to understand how Jerek Gonzales pulled off

|Many Arcades Have Turned To The Dark
Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures
- The Time Has Come To Bust Crooked Arcades
Arcades across the country have
engaged in shenanigans and illegal business practices for far too long. Arcades have
gotten away with this through neo-draconian anti-whistleblowing policies. Managers at Dave
& Buster's say and do unspeakable things to guests and are rarely repremanded, because
there is rarely any tangible proof of what they have done. But, what if players
got out their cameras and starting busting arcade staff committing illegal acts and
Whistleblowers should no longer be silenced! All it takes is a photograph of a staff member
snorting a line of cocaine off of a chipcard to get them fired! All it takes is a video of a
broken game to get it fixed! All it takes is an audio recording of a staff member
calling you a BLANK to get them fired!
All you need is your evidence and the perpetrator's full name and you should be
golden. What should you do with your evidence once
you acquire it? Why put it on the arcade's Facebook page of course. Arcades, like Dave &
Buster's, have a very popular Facebook page and whenever customers post anything incriminating or
scandalous on there it is bad for business.
Videos and photos can be directly attached to a Facebook post. Photos can be added to both Facebook
posts and comments. If you ever want to attach a video to a Facebook post we suggest using the
If you upload your evidence to Facebook, at that point, Dave &
Buster's corporate will probably be compelled to take action against the offending staff
member. Because Dave & Buster's corporate will almost always take their crooked staff's word
over yours, a comment or post alone usually isn't enough to get the job done. That is why you
need the photo/video/audio evidence.
If you go the audio evidence route, the best way to turn that into usable Facebook evidence is
by adding it to a video. On the screen you can just display a still frame photo that conveys
the overall theme of the audio evidence, while the audio plays in the background.
If you don't want to go the Facebook route, you can just contact Arcade Revolution and we will do
the rest. If you send us your evidence we will expose the perpetrators for you so that you don't
have to deal with the political backlash associated with blowing the whistle on your local arcade.
If staff at an arcade ever want to expose other crooked staff members at their location we will
help them out too.
But, if anyone contacts us and doesn't want their name mentioned, they need to
make sure to state that point blank or send their evidence to us anonymously so that it cannot be
traced back to them.
You should never do anything illegal in an arcade. So, we must warn you to check your
local laws governing the use of hidden recording devices in an arcade before ever
recording any footage, as we don't want you to get in any trouble. Some authoritarian arcades may
also try to ban you for trying to use a hidden camera to bust corruption. So, keep that in
mind as well.
We should also mention that this is a last resort. But, sometimes, if you play at an extremely
shady location, absolutely nothing that you say or do will get them to behave properly. So,
desperate times call for desperate measures!
Click HERE to see some of the tools that
could be used to take down and bust crooked arcade staff. Many of these types of hidden recording
devices can be purchased on ebay for dirt cheap.
If you have an iPhone or iPod Touch you can purchase the stealthcam app to secretly record video
and take pictures too. If you go this route make sure to lower the brightness on your screen down
as low it goes before using the stealthcam app in off-mode or just use it in internet-mode. You can
also surreptitiously record audio by sticking your iOS device in your shirt pocket with the
factory audio recording memo app on.
Being that players have all these tools at their disposal, Dave & Buster's staff
should think twice before doing or saying anything shady. All
it takes is a player taking a picture of them, a little
photoshop memic wizardry, and a creative post to the Dave & Buster's Facebook page to
possibly ruin their career.
Players don't come down to Dave & Buster's to be tormented and harassed. Players come
there to have fun. That is the reason 99.99% of players go there. So, staff need to keep that
in mind before being rude and disrespectful to

A Man Wins An Ipad On A Merchandiser Game

|Dave & Buster's Arcade Design Secrets
Arcade & Casino Science Used At Dave
& Buster's To Lure Their Customers Into Their Trap
& Buster's has built an empire through the utilization of the little known subject of arcade
science. Through out the course of building facilities in a multitude of geographic
regions over the years they have developed techniques to keep customers playing longer
and spending more money. They have essentially created a formula to trick the customers into
thinking they have a better chance of winning than they actually do.
Arcade science is a combination of bar and casino science, with a few
elements that make it unique. Many of the elements of
arcades science have been discussed by Jon Taffer on the television show Bar Rescue. But, we
have included our own observations on how arcades operate, based on hundred of hours of
playing at Dave & Buster's and other
From the height of the ceiling, to the prizes available at
an arcade, arcades utilize a variety of design, prize selection, and game configuration
techniques to make their customers feel like they can win big, when they rarely have a remote
chance of winning big. If you think the design of an arcade is random, it is not. Everything is
placed in a cold and calculated manner to extricate more money from their customers. Knowing the
sciences in place, can allow you to avoid the pitfalls of previous generations of players.
Understand that when used properly arcade science can be used to allow advantage players to win
big, arcades to make more money, and customers to have more fun. But, science can be used for good
or for evil. Once Dave & Buster's started banning big winners and entrapping customers they
crossed the line. In response, we have given away all of Dave & Buster's midway design secrets
so that other honest and more responsible arcades can put that information to good use, providing
their customers with a more high end and engaging guest experience.

Christopher Gray recently posted a second

not alone in voicing his dissent.
We discovered that most of the posts on the Dave & Buster's facebook page are either
