Dave & Busters is upping the stakes on its arcade games. 

The company is set to allow customers who are at least 18 years old to bet on arcade games in its app.

Using Lucra Sports’ real-money gamification software, Dave & Buster’s loyalty members will be able “to digitally compete with each other, earn rewards, and unlock exclusive perks while competing with friends at Dave & Buster’s,” the company said in a statement Tuesday.

Simon Murray, Dave & Buster’s senior vice president of entertainment and attractions, said the partnership with Lucra “gives our loyalty members real-time, unrivaled gaming experiences.”

A representative for Lucra told NBC that there would be a limit placed on the bets, but didn’t disclose what that would be. 

FOX Business reached out to Lucra for comment.
