2022 PPA Scholarship

Premier Pinball & Amusement is proud to partner with Osseo Senior High School (MN) to be able to provide one scholarship to a future business & entrepreneurship student for college.

This scholarship was started in 2022 and will continue to be provided to one Osseo High School student annually. Osseo Senior High School is the former high school of PPA’s owner Andrew Lanners.

Andrew stated that “it is an honor and privilege to be able to give back to somewhere that gave me so much. I am excited to be able to provide educational opportunities in business & entrepreneurship to students that have the same passion that I had when I was their age for years to come.”

The Story

The journey to the creation of Premier Pinball & Amusement started for founder Andrew Lanners long before PPA was created. At a young age, Andrew had an entrepreneurial mindset that helped provide both goods and services to others. After graduating college, Andrew noticed that there was a want for at home entertainment from homeowners, cabin owners, business owners and many more around the United States.

After time establishing relationships and learning the industry, Premier Pinball & Amusement was established. Since Premier Pinball & Amusement was created, PPA has sent arcade games and pinball machines across the United States and into Canada.

Andrew enjoys owning a business that works with a variety of people and ages along with being able to provide memories that last a lifetime! In his free time, Andrew loves spending time with family, friends, coaching, traveling, hunting, spending time outdoors and cheering on Minnesota sports teams! Andrew is inspired daily by his family, friends, and faith.

Andrew and team were reliable and provided professional shipping of my pinball machine from Minneapolis to Denver. Excellent communication, highly recommended!

Working with Andrew was a great experience especially for someone like me that had little knowledge about pinball. He provided me with many options that fit into what I was looking for and anytime I reached out or had questions he was always very responsive. I ended up buying 2 machines from him and they look great, play great and my family and friends sure have been enjoying them. He is one of the easiest people to work with from start to finish in my experience, he even was willing to deliver and help me set up both machines. Top notch guy and when I decide to add to the collection he will definitely be my first call

I purchased my Big Buck Hunter World cabinet from Andrew via Craigslist and had a great experience. Communication through text was convenient and timely. The pictures and description of the machine he provided were accurate. He was very accommodating when scheduling a pickup time. He let me test the machine, answered any questions I had and even answered follow-up questions I had days later. The game itself plays great. The guns are calibrated perfectly and I was very surprised how clean the inside of the cabinet was. The monitor looks great. It even came with the original manual. He helped me load it into my truck and made payment convenient by accepting Venmo. I would definitely buy from Andrew again.

We have purchased 2 pinball machines from Andrew for an arcade we are opening, Vision Arcade and Skateboard Shop. He has been very helpful and items are as described. We will be buying more for our arcade in the near future. We recommend Andrew for your pinball machine needs!

From the time I saw the machine online to the time I played my first game, Andrew was available, accommodating, and professional. He took great care in making the experience of buying a pinball machine as easy and painless as it can be, I’m happy to recommend Andrew to anyone looking to buy an arcade machine. Very professional and courteous.

Joe L.

I was looking for a pinball machine on Facebook Marketplace and ran across a listing that Andrew had posted. I sent him a message and he called me within the hour. I didn’t end up buying the pinball machine that day, but he stayed in touch as he acquired stuff. One month later we had a beautiful refurbished pinball machine and got our daughters a pac-man table machine. Andrew was awesome, we had a great experience buying from him. He’s a straight up honest dude, not trying to shove a sale through. Hope to add to our games soon with him!!!

Andrew was able to locate a machine that I’d been trying to find for years. Before pickup, the machine was shopped, cleaned and inspected so when it arrived at our home it was literally a “plug and play” experience. If we ever decide to expand our game room, we’ll definitely be giving Andrew a call

Chris J.

I’ve worked with Andrew a couple of times and both have been great experiences. Prompt, customer focused and does what he says. I would highly recommend working with him!

Tom Hoese

Owner – Magnolia Landscape & Design Co.

I have enjoyed the Williams Space Shuttle pinball machine that I bought on Facebook from Andrew. Everything worked as advertised, the pin had been shopped, cleaned and was competitively priced. He is a breeze to work with, communication was stellar, extremely punctual, which meant a lot with this transaction as I drove 3.5 hours each way to pick it up. 5 stars all around.

Cam S.

Andrew is a class act. He found me a very hard pinball machine to find. Very smooth transaction I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a pinball machine or arcade game.

Scott Lindquist

I have purchased multiple arcade systems from Andrew. My experiences with Andrew are that he’s very professional, responsive, and knowledgeable of his product. If there’s a special arcade “wish list” item, Andrew is your go-to person to find that item. I would very much recommend him for your home arcade needs.

Luke Doubler

Owner – Recruiter Central

I was in the market for a pinball machine and came across Andrew‘s site and was so impressed by the inventory and quality of the pinball machines. Very fairly priced. Andrew was great from the moment of getting the pinball machine into my car to actually helping me troubleshoot an issue that we ran into after we had movers that didn’t take great care of it. He went above and beyond! Exceptional service

Tammy G.

We had a great experience buying a 1979 Pinball from Andrew. He was very responsive to our texts and messages. For an additional cost he delivered it and set it up for us. We would highly recommend him for arcade machines.

Daniel H.

Andrew’s response time has been amazing on anything and everything we need. I appreciate his ability to deliver products as advertised on time. I very much look forward to working with you in the future.
