Watch Out For Rigged Carnival Games This Summer [Video]
Who hasn’t spent $20 or more on a carnival toy that is, in reality, only worth $5? We all have. There’s a reason we never win at these games, and this sheds some light on it.
As a kid I thought it was the coolest thing to play the carnival games, as a grown man I can’t walk through a midway with a woman and not be harassed by the carnies. It doesn’t take much, then I have to prove to the woman I’m with and the carny that I am a man, and that I can win.
$5, $10, then $20 passes, still not winning that huge overstuffed bear. Why? Because it’s rigged! Check out this video before you head off to the carnival.
