It’s Friday night and you and your friends are hitting the arcade to score some sweet prizes with your boatload of tickets that you’re going to win. About an hour into playing you realize that you aren’t as good as you thought you were at playing all these random games of skill. Your ticket haul is pathetic and all your friends are laughing at you while they drink slurpees from the concession stand.
Did you know that this isn’t really your fault? You were supposed to lose. How can arcades make money if everyone wins all the time right? And now there is proof that some of these arcade game (all of them) are actually rigged. For the game in the video below, it’s not how good you are but if it’s your turn to win.
This guy makes a machine that pretty much guarantees he will win every time but for some reason he doesn’t.
So it’s not your lack of hand-eye coordination that has kept you from buying that mini helicopter drone at the ticket counter. Feel better? However, if you suck at skee-ball….that’s because you suck at skee-ball.
