Home Dual Shot
Pop-A-Shot, which created the first basketball arcade game, last year introduced its first game for the home market: the Home Dual Shot.
We thought it was very good. But we wanted great. So we went back to the drawing board.
We believe the result—the Pop-A-Shot Home Dual Shot—is not only the best Home basketball arcade game, it’s the best basketball arcade game period.
We kept what worked: the same sturdy construction (1.5” tubes and a solid 1/2″ backboard), wheels for mobility and a heavy-duty nylon ball ramp. Then we added extension tubes, so you can tailor the height of the game (it even fits under 7’ ceilings).
But the biggest changes are in the game play. We created a proprietary scoring system that is the most accurate we’ve ever seen. We enlarged the scoreboard for better viewing (and since some of you score a lot of points, added a third digit).
We added more games to choose from—a total of 10, from the classic 1-on-1 competition to individual skill challenges. And we added an entire audio component, with 3 different music selections, sound effects (crowd noise and basket “swishes”) and an announcer who calls the game for you. And to make all of this easy to manage, we added a Control Panel on the front of the game.
We think the New Pop-A-Shot Home Dual Shot sets the standard for basketball arcade games.

Game Play: Scoring Issues
If your Home Dual Shot is not accurately scoring baskets:
- Make sure the sensors are accurately and securely plugged into the scoring unit in back.
- Make sure the sensors are securely attached to the backboard.
If the scoring is still not accurate:Remove the net from the basket that isn’t working. Shoot some baskets and see if they’re counted. If the baskets are counted with the nets removed: The sensors are fine and you just need to adjust them in order for them not to hit off the net. Make sure the sensors are on straight. If they are angled (up/down or to the side) they may be sensing the net or rim in front and thus missing baskets. If the baskets are not counted with the nets removed: You may have a faulty sensor (this is very uncommon). Please contact us (email@example.com).
