Dave And Busters Spider-Man Homecoming Video Game Television Commercial Promo
The first Dave & Buster’s was opened in Dallas in 1982 by David Corriveau and James “Buster” Corley. Corley had previously operated a bar called “Buster’s” in Little Rock, Arkansas, next door to a saloon and game parlor called “Cash McCool’s”, owned by Corriveau. After opening Dave & Buster’s, the two operated as co-CEOs.
In 1989, Edison Brothers Stores purchased majority ownership in the restaurant to finance further expansion into other cities. Dave & Buster’s was spun off from Edison Brothers and went public with Andy Newman as chairman in 1995. By 1997 the chain had ten locations across the country.
D&B acquired nine Jillian’s locations after Jillian’s filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in 2004. Seven of these Jillian’s locations were rebranded with the Dave & Buster’s name, while two were closed following the acquisition. The company announced on December 8, 2005, that it would be acquired by private equity firm Wellspring Capital Management. On July 16, 2008, Dave & Buster’s Holdings Inc, filed with the SEC to again become a publicly-traded company. The company had set a date for the Initial public offering IPO of October 5, 2012. However, it pulled out right before it opened. In June 2010, Oak Hill Capital Partners, in partnership with the company’s management team, completed its acquisition of Dave & Buster’s from Wellspring Capital Management.
In October 2014, Dave & Buster’s launched a second IPO, selling 5.88 million shares at an offering price range of $16–18. The offering raised $94 million, to be used for debt repayments. Shares are traded on the NASDAQ stock exchange using the symbol PLAY.
Items on Dave & Buster’s menu are offered from early lunch until late night and include pasta, burgers, steaks, seafood, chicken, and desserts. The menu is frequently updated to reflect current trends and guest favorites. Some locations serve Sunday brunch. Buffets are available for special events and private parties. All D&Bs offer full bar service.
Dave & Buster’s dubbed their arcade section, which features interactive games and simulators, “Million Dollar Midway”. In 1997, Dave & Buster’s introduced the Power Card, a declining balance card or ‘debit card’ that replaces traditional tokens and tickets, and is required to activate most arcade games and can be reloaded at so-called “power stations”. The Power Card is intended to enable customers to activate games more easily and encourage the extended play of games to increase customer spending. By replacing most coin operations, the Power Card has reduced the technical difficulties and maintenance issues associated with coin-operated equipment. In 2015, Dave & Buster’s installed proximity game card readers that allow guests to simply tap on the readers to play. Since 2020, Power Cards have been able to be added to Google Pay and Apple Wallet through the DING DING DING app.

“Dave & Buster’s released a video revealing the new Spider-Man: Homecoming game. The 30-second clip shows a brief glimpse of the game, available exclusively at Dave & Buster’s locations, and announces new promotions tied to it. There’s not much gameplay footage in the video, but it does show Spider-Man slinging through the city collecting some kind of tokens as he flies through the air. The video urges you to “Test your Spidey senses.” ~
