The restaurant and arcade chain Dave & Buster’s is going to let customers bet on arcade games, according to an announcement on Tuesday.

Customers will be able to digitally place cash bets at the arcades, where people play games like Skee-Ball, billiards and basketball shootouts.

A technology company, Lucra, is teaming up with Dave & Buster’s to provide the digital betting service.

Michael Madding, Lucra’s chief operating officer, said in an interview on Wednesday that the company’s product would be used for “skill-based” games at Dave & Buster’s, including “recreational activities for which the outcome is largely or entirely dependent on the knowledge, ability, strength, speed, endurance, intelligence of the participants and is subject to the control of those participants.”

Dave & Buster’s did not respond to requests for comment, and it was not clear which specific games customers would be able to place bets on, or when the company would roll out the betting product, which will be available to people enrolled in the Dave & Buster’s loyalty program.

Mr. Madding said that Lucra’s products are available to people 18 and older and that the company allows its partners and consumers to set limits “based on their needs and preferences.” “Our typical average contest size for Lucra’s technology is around $5 to $10,” he said.
