Restaurants, entertainment venues, taverns … they need our help. Clarifying the long-running status of redemption games helps everyone.
At a time when these small businesses need our help now more than ever, a key part of their revenue stream is under threat. State agencies are aggressively and wrongly targeting businesses that offer redemption games for play. These games, which can be found at restaurants, bars and clubs across Michigan, include crane games, pusher bar games, and electronic games of skill that allow a player to win prizes ranging from stuffed animals to gift cards. They’re fun and harmless, and they provide much needed revenue to restaurants, bars and clubs throughout the state.
