Beat the claw crane. Win the little piggy!
Sick of losing quarters to machines that promise you toys? Wanna win the stuffed piggy once and for all?
Our guy Matt has won loads of stuffed piggies and he's going to show you how! Matt's an arcade game fanatic. So obsessed, he's purchased his very own claw machine just to deconstruct it from the inside out.
Unfortunately, this game isn't always about skill. According to Wikipedia, "Some machines can be configured to basically be games of chance. On a machine with a flimsy grip and a mechanism controlling the odds of a strong grip, little skill is involved in winning prizes by attempting to grasp them with the claw: the crane's random number generator decides whether the claw will grip or not."
Bummer. It's like being told there is no Santa Claus.
