Cover: Venco's Newberry Goes Wireless

AVS Buys Lieberman Dist. - Talk about “Wow!” The Liebermans of Minneapolis have been in coin-op distributing since the ’40s, but no more. On Jan. 5, they sold that portion of the family business to another family: the Gummas of Chicago’s American Vending Sales. Welcome to the Twin Cities, Vince!

Skillful Gambling? Yup! The Nevada Legislature decided to allow engineers to put the skill factor into future gaming machines, which will allow players to manipulate the outcome just the way they do on our games. Bob Cooney penned an excellent story on what this could mean downstream. Must reading! To read Bob's insightful essay, click on the headline above; to get RePlay legal columnist Tom Fricke's take on skill gaming, click here.

Ernie the Energizer! San Antonio operator Ernest Barberio just goes on forever, and is still reporting for duty at the age of 90, though on a more limited scale than in his younger days when he built his impressive juke and games route in the Lone Star State.

An FEC “Route?” Just Ask Ray - Golden Coin’s veteran operator Ray Shackleford and wife Sue have converted their business from the street to the FEC after paring down their many accounts to around 30 game rooms in bowling centers, trampoline parks, rinks, etc. Only one bar is left on the string.

Seninsky Sizzles - Frank Seninsky’s words about all things coin-op have appeared in the trade papers for decades, but his treatise on how to set up a family fun center in this issue is classic. This arcade and Foundations maven earns his stripes as one of the best journalists in the history of coin-op with this piece.
