    Default How to entice custies away from the video poker machines

    So my club (Portland, OR) has several video poker machines in a separate room just off the main stage. I constantly see guys go in there and gamble away more than a LD would have cost, and then complain they have no money for dances! Obviously I'd rather have that money in my pocket.

    So I have often been successful in turning these non-payers into stage tippers with a line like, "Let me ask you an honest question. Why would you be in here when there are tits in there, and why would you gamble your money on a maybe when you could buy a lap dance and get a sure thing?"

    They usually tell me that they are trying to win enough money for a LD. I know whether they are lying or not because I can see whether or not they feed the cost of a lappie into the machine to begin with. When I counter with, "At least come sit at my stage, baby! I'll give you a preview of what happens back there!" I'd say 60-70% of them come to my stage and throw down a few bucks. However, I'm never able to sell LDs to the video poker guys!

    So my question is, how can I entice them out of the back room and into the private dance area?

    Eh,it's a hit or miss for me in my experience. I usually find them to be that regular who doesn't do shit. I have came across a fee who win then get a LD,but most of the time I don't entertain them.

    IME those customers are not good customers. They're over it. They have another vice and it is gambling.

    Oh man.. that sounds annoying.

    We dont have those around here but when Ive worked in clubs with pool tables, I basically ignored those guys unless there was ABSOLUTELY NO ONE ELSE TO TALK TO!

    I found that its often not worth the effort and theyre not there to get dances. Different situation but maybe kind of similar?

    Yeah guys playing pool in a strip club have always been a waste of time ime.
    Sometimes they will bug strippers "oh play a game i'll take you for a dance if you win" like wat you expect a half hour of free entertainment from me for maaaybe A dance? Nope.

    If i had no other options i'd walk up to the pool table guys and say something like "stop playing with your balls and take me for a dance" and very rarely it'd work.

    If the video poker guys came to the club to get dances they wouldn't be playing video poker... I'd try to come up with a few quick sales lines for them when there are no other options but wouldn't waste time on them otherwise.

    People do not gamble to win, because they don't stop more often times than not until all the money is gone. Gambling is more addictive & a stronger pull than sex.

    I'd be mad at the club for installing them. Knowing that they are almost pure profit for very little maintenance pretty much says you are screwed.

    Could never understand why strip clubs install pool tables, sports on tvs, poker and any other distractions that take away from the main event......live women.

    I highly doubt they are making the same commission off pool games, tvs, and poker machines than they are on atm fees and private dance fees so therefore should be eliminated.

    The only machines club should install are atms. Not only will people need these to spend on drinks/food/dances/tips/etc but also the club can get 9-11% (or whatever they want to charge) for every withdraw.

    That's a frustrating situation to be in. It makes sense for the club from a business standpoint, but it screws over the dancers. How's the club overall? If there are more issues than just the poker machines, maybe it's time to try other clubs.

    Yes it seems like a club who does this does not care about helping the women profit but only thinking about their own profits.

    I think it would make sense from a business standpoint IF it were a pool hall, a sports pub, a casino. The fact some strip clubs have these to me mean not only do they not care about helping dancers profit but also they are not clear on their business plan. Like do you want a strip club or a pool hall? Do you want a sports bar or a strip club?

    It's a cultural thing. They are everywhere here, that goes for regular bars, sports bars, student bars, and SCs but the clubs I work in have enough traffic that I usually don't have to ask myself, how do I compete with a video poker machine.

    Haaa. Yep. I danced in Portland for about a year and a half and learned that those people are a waste of hustle. Most of the clubs I worked at had these. I hated it. I never ever ever even once convinced one to come get a dance. They are in a gambling trance. Don't bother.

    You don't. I have a few regulars who will go over to them for shits and giggles, but any customer who only hangs out at the machines will not be worth your time.

    Edit: just saw this thread was a year old, ah whatever lol.

    Hi, I’m also in PDX and those machines are a curse.

    I have a very low-energy hustle for those guys. I’ll walk by and ask if they’re having any luck. If they say yes, I congratulate them, and if they seem interested in chatting I might hang out for a few minutes and see if they’re interested in a dance. If I don’t get very good dance vibes immediately, I walk away.

    If they aren’t having any luck (usual), I say “those damn machines always just take your money!” in a cheerful voice, then offer to shake my boobs at the machine for luck. I do that, then I walk away.

    I’ll circle back to those customers and see if they want a dance later. Again, if I don’t get strong signals of interest immediately, I walk away. I rarely spend more than 2-3 minutes at a machine with a customer.

    95% of the time, I come up empty. But that 5% makes it worth it for me when there aren’t any better prospects or when I need to look busy so other customers will understand that my time is valuable

    This is a huge red flag.
