Anyone who has played a claw machine knows just how frustrating the game gets after a while. To me it seems like the machine isn’t even trying. On the contrary, it seems to actually work against me. And apparently it’s not only my imagination. Believe it or not, some claw machines are rigged. However, not all claw machines are set this way and some are 100% skill based. Unfortunately, the only way to determine if a claw machine is rigged is to play it. But at least now you can blame it on the machine when you can’t get your girlfriend that stuffed bear she desperately wants.
