DAVE AND BUSTED:  Those arcade claw/crane machine games are rigged via the PSI settings to only let you grab a prize one out of every 12-15 times.

    My dad got two plush baby seals in four tries at Sea World in 1989. And the plushes were just as good as the full-price ones in the gift shop (which is not necessarily to say that they DIDN'T cost 25-50 cents each wholesale).

    I mean, yeah, this is a major theological discovery.

    And wouldn't you know -- this stuff's been litigated.
    (manufacturers and distributors of crane games challenged decisions that banned their games because they were found to be unlwaful games of chance rather than games of skill).

    The real question is, how often does your hook get lodged in the prize hole?
