Edgy arcade opens at Pavilions

FTW features more than 100 arcade games.

The bar was packed on opening night.

An edgy arcade just opened next to Lucky Strike in the Denver Pavilions on the 16th Street Mall.

FTW  (For The Win), interconnected with the existing Lucky Strike, is about 15,000 square feet and features more than 100 arcade games ranging from classics such as Skeeball and pinball to the modern and highly popular games Showdown and Outrun Super Deluxe. There's also the World's Largest Pac-Man, four-person air hockey and a photo booth that uploads pictures directly to  social media accounts.

"My wife and I like to create places that people can go and have something to do other than just eat and drink," says Steven Foster, CEO of Lucky Strike Entertainment, which operates both venues.

The arcade's high-tech swiping system lets you track balances and winnings, giving gamers the freedom to come and go at any time without having to cash out or take home tokens or tickets. An 850-square-foot retail store dubbed The Payoff has more than 250 prizes, including boardgames, XBOXes, Surface Pros and the Apple Watches.

Denver is Lucky Strike Entertainment's third FTW venue nationally.
