    WR monetary rewards

    This might be a half baked thought but I would pre-pay $ for a specific coin-op new WR. That is, as long I was able to view the new WR recording if it wasn't in person at a TG sponsored place/event like FunSpot. No post dated submissions allowed.


    The new WR holder would receive 50% of the total $ collected and Twin Galaxies would keep the other 50%, or something along those lines. I guess it would only be fair to allow a new WR holder to opt-out. Still, imagine a title collecting $ over a number of years and what the purse could potentially get to and the resulting interest.


    Seems like it could spur competition and assist TG with their efforts. If this applied to ALL coin-op titles........


    At any rate, just thought I'd throw it out there.


    Has anything along these lines ever been discussed?

    I think bounties are being planned for, but the currency would be TG submissions points. There may be legal issues for actual cash bounties depending on what country or state.

    I"m no lawyer but I think you're talking about gambling laws right? I'm pretty sure at least every US state agrees its not gambling if you didnt have to spend any money. So a cash reward, that has no entry fee should be fine. again, nt a lawyer, nothing i say should be misconstrued as legal advice.
