Nah, knowing how they're rigged puts me off.

Magic was ruined for me as a kid when I saw in Yarmouth a message on the machine about its classification as a gambling device.

Never again.


The worst kind of gambling is one that pretends that there is skill involved, because it plays off the gambler thinking they just need to get gud, when there's actually nothing they can do. Its a disgrace.

Yep.... I had learnt that the hard way.

The "variable reinforcement schedule" was hard to break...gambling addiction is freightening.

If you do want to try playing one, remember one thing, go after whatever is on top of everything first. No matter how good you are at positioning the "claw" above the plush items, the claw it self does not have enough clamping strength to pull it out from under anything that might be on top of it.

My Nephew spends a small fortune on them when he visits us.
We live in a small seaside town on the southcoast of England = Littlehampton, West Sussex.

I was in the amusments one day and watched the staff filling up the machine and adjing the Claw grip to drop most items.


For me, I love the coin pusher machines.
