Summary: I built a machine to win an arcade game every time that was super accurate. In doing so I accidently discovered that this arcade game is totally rigged.

I make videos like this once a month all year long while supplies last:

    Of course they don't want you getting their tootsie rolls and $10 toys you spent $60 getting. I used to just buy my boys and give it them after they played about $10 in tokens. Saved me money big time.

    there are no arcades in the whole country, FI. single flippers are a retro rarity. There is a casino industry and small kids touch screens and maybe Playstations like on a cruise line

    Guys--- my uncle owns a carnival... youre missing the point. Of course the games are rigged for this exact reason- they have an extraordinarily low skill cap. break a bottle 30 years ago is break a bottle now. It comes down to the outfit being interested in offering an experience- I never let a kid walk away without a toy, sometimes a cute girl (i was 17 lol), and yes sometimes the drunk asshead who spent 300 dollars yelling and cursing and being a jackass didn't get anything. don't let your kids expect to win, have them expect to have fun... and they'll win :)

    I find these interesting. I would like to see some in-depth analysis of machines that are quasi-random-chance as well, where the near-miss effect is used a lot. Like the coin drop, which is incredibly popular in Britain. It's using physical coins and physical prices, so how come it's so hard to get anything out of it? You should just be able to calculate where to drop the coin, billiards style, but that never pays off, so what is going on with those machines?

    Claw machines also allow the owner to pick how often the player wins. I had to buy/brand/fill one as a gimmick for a trade show for a company and you could set it up for as few as one in 99 tries wins.
