News: Beat the claw crane. Win the little piggy!

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.

how to i crack the machine controller

i've never seen any machine like that with that amount of grip.

I think his settings were all high

thats interesting , but like everyone saying never seen a machine with that grip , its designed to rip u off , just like casinos

Those machhines are a rip off like were gonna get the chance to open up a claw machine and make them definetlty give us a prize but i guess the tips on where to aim the claw was useful

i spent my 8 minutes watching this????
all u need is luck

The lack of punctuation use and proper grammar on these comments astounds me. But yeah, I agree... he's adorable.

it was all a #$%@ing lie

if the owner sees u taking the calw thing appard wouldent u get busted, then u would nevr b able to beat it!!!

skrew adjusting the settings. just fast track to the prize and smash the glass!

interesting....i agree adorable.


why not just steal the prizes instead of opening the glass and adjusting the claw??????

A coat hanger and 2 lookouts. I win every time. No quarters.

THIS GUY RULES! when i get enough money im gonna get a claw machine too
