Pop It for Gold is a branded redemption game manufactured by Benchmark Games, Inc. commonly found at Chuck E. Cheese Locations. It is a game which tasks the player of popping a balloon inside the machine.


This game is a test of timing and speed, which inside the machine is a wheel spinner that decides the amount of air that goes into the balloon on the side of the cabinet based on what the player lands on. There is a small section of the spinner that is named 'Instant Pop', which upon landing, the balloon on the side of the machine will inflate until the balloon pops. This is a considered the jackpot and a varying amount of tickets will be awarded to the player.
