IT’S NOT YOU. THOSE CLAW MACHINES HAVE BEEN RIGGED ALL ALONG!!!

 

CLAW

I knew it, I knew it, I knew it. I’m probably late to the party on this, but better late than never. Thanks to Vox I now have the proof to back up my gut feeling that the claw machines I played with in my youth were rigged. Look, I’m not big on gambling or taking risks in general. Even if it’s only a .50 cent risk. So all of those times I played the claw arcade games and lost, it really pissed me off. How could I line it up perfectly and have that teddy bear completely enveloped by the claw and yet it still doesn’t pick it up?! You can’t understand just how mad this made me when I was younger (just last week). Well now we have the reason behind all those losing games. It’s all rigged. This video was a great way to inform people that some claw machines are in fact set on payout rates. However, not all claw machines are set this way and some are 100% skill based. The unfortunate thing is, the only way to determine if a claw machine is rigged, is to play it. Well that sucks.
