Let the little crum crunchers cry. They'll get no remorse from the TDPRI community .
People need to know where the good claw machines are and how to avoid a ripper claw, those with little grip tension.
If you take a very large view on what "the house" means,
then you can think about what "the smartest people don't play" would look like in your life.
There used to be a great Mexican restaurant in these parts that had a claw machine with beanie baby type things in it. The great thing about this machine was: 1) it was never fully packed with toys, so the toys didn't get jammed up with each other, and 2) they wrapped cable ties around the end of the claws for better gripping. You could always walk away with a toy for a buck or two, I'm sure they still made a profit off of it. My wife always wanted to play it. She still likes playing those damn machines, but probably has never won anything in any other machine. I miss that place, not for the claw machine; they had killer mole.
You guys should check out the videos on YouTube about how to "win" at these machines. Here's the trick - most of them are programmed to allow wins occasionally by "tightening" the claw's grabbing force. There's little to no skill involved...just a matter of when it's ready to pay out (much like casino slot machines). Unless there are toys near the exit chute that you can tip over using the side movement of the claw.
If gambling and losing and being sad about it taught lessons about gambling, there would be no more gamblers. I don't think the claw machine teaches any lessons at all. I'd get rid of it.
Aww!! They missed the opportunity for the perfect game: Whack-a-Mole
The worst one I’ve seen was at a random gas station in highway 5. It had bundles of rolled up dollar bills!
It’s catered towards adults and teens as actual money is used as a prize.
I found a picture online that looked like it albeit having dollar bills rolled, not $20/$100 bills as shown:
