Dave and Buster’s customers can soon make a friendly $5 wager on arcade games like skeeball and basketball.

The arcade company recently partnered with Lucra Sports, a gamification software company. The new betting feature will be available to users 18 or older and will debut within the next few months.

Where does California rank among the most gambling-addicted states?

“We’re thrilled to work with Lucra to bring this exciting new gaming platform to our customers,” Simon Murray, senior vice president of entertainment and attractions at Dave & Buster’s, told CNBC.

“This new partnership gives our loyalty members real-time, unrivaled gaming experiences and reinforces our commitment to continuing to elevate our customer experience through innovative, cutting-edge technology.”

According to CNBC, the new feature won’t be regulated like sports betting, which is illegal in states like California.

“We use real-money contests or challenges,” Dylan Madding, co-creator of the platform, said.

Details on how the new app feature will work weren’t disclosed, but many have assumed that users will be betting against their friends rather than the house.

For example, when someone loses, their friend gets $5, not Dave & Buster’s, which didn’t return KTLA’s request for comment.

Others, however, are still confused on how the new feature will work.
