Now at Dave and Buster’s – Despicable Me Jelly Lab Arcade Game

It’s a few weeks old but this is the first New In The Arcade update for GamesnCranes.  Now at Dave and Busters is the new Despicable Me Jelly Lab card redemption game.  Featuring the minions from Despicable Me. This game is similar to the coin pusher card collecting games but a bit different from both Spongebob and Star Trek in that it has a conveyor belt with various ticket awards and card awards and dispenses the cards with a conveyor belt instead of a coin pusher to win cards. 

You press a button and a coin slides out, if it lands on a jelly section of the belt you win what that jelly section is for.  If you miss the section on the belt you just get two tickets.  You can win from 8 to 24 tickets per play on a jelly spot or go for the win card section.  If you hit the win card box exactly spot on with the coin and no part of the coin being over the line you’ll get one of the minion cards from the conveyor belt on the edge.  

Collect a full set of Minion cards to win bonus tickets

The game is colorful and attractive with bright lights and sound clips of minions and Gru.  The minions scream in excitement when you win and are sad when you lose.  For anyone who is a fan of other card collecting games and likes Despicable Me and the minions this will be a great game for

you.  It is however, kind of pricey for the difficulty.  The goal of the game

 for most will be to collect the cards and it can be really stingy on where the hit zone is to win a card.  Just a tiny amount over or under the win zone and you won’t get a card.  While you do get a discount for multiple swipes it is 10 points per swipe and 5 on half price Wednesdays.  I’d recommend you try this for the first time on a half price day as it takes some getting used to to find the right timing on the machine.  

Despicable Me Jelly Lab is fun for any fan of minions or card redemption games

    I love this game. I got the bonus once and now I am just waiting for another rare purple one so I can have a second full set. I have so much fun playing this.
