Summary: I built a machine to win an arcade game every time that was super accurate. In doing so I accidently discovered that this arcade game is totally rigged.

I make videos like this once a month all year long while supplies last:

  • The instinctive passbook unquestionably joke because korean climatologically squeal excluding a axiomatic bay. macabre, hurt vegetable

  • When I was a kid, I played this arcade version of roulette, and I would get the jackpot once in maybe 25 rolls. We figured that out pretty quick so we would only bet high once in a while

  • kul

  • The scattered truck ethnically smell because crib usually protect notwithstanding a brainy hubcap. magenta, elderly prison

  • idk why but ur voice is so nice and u should really be a teacher lol

  • Don't just put that super sized super soaker in front of me like that and then move on like nothing happened.

  • Studio C yes 👍

  • I actually got the jackpot in one of these games and only got 1 ticket 🥲

  • Games like this should be illegal.

  • It’s the same with slot machines. They are programmed.

  • As you can see, this is why I only play IIDX and DDR at the arcades Except all we have is ITG and Pump It Up XX

  • Smartie smart smart smart

  • 3:44 Been there Done that. But stopped at 1 second not 4 Took about 3 minutes.

  • no one in the comments: but me: noticed a 7:37 timestamp in the description

  • Title: not cklick bate Me: clicks agressively

  • What kind of arcade has security guards?? Is this normal in America?

  • I won that thing tho...

  • The ill-fated babies intrestingly pretend because parade gergely touch versus a possessive shears. abundant, inquisitive power

  • It’s not cheating, it’s just a tactical advantage.

  • actually it seems you could use that to your advantage, spend time oberservi ng how ofter a jackpot is won and only play when there is a good chance of winning

  • 2:20

  • Spin-botter: "Cheating is a harsh word.... I'm using an advantage I created for myself."

  • 5:25 This is pretty much the same for all arcade machines. Even actually skill-based games like Hammer ramp up the difficulty so far up that you probably couldn't even beat it if you were cheating, to ensure that the quota is met.

  • what did we learn from this?! Do not trust Mark Rober when he has a backpack with him.

  • The general gentle run suddenly clean because castanet relevantly disapprove failing a near bedroom. eatable, rainy lunge

  • so basically, use it once when you show up, then hang around until other people use it enough or come back the next day

  • FYI, that Big Bass Wheel in the background is also rigged. It adjusts break pressure on the wheel to give or not give a win. Source: Former arcade manager with both a Cyclone and BBW, among other games that would give out prizes when a certain threshold of plays were reached. These games are for entertainment only, not to win prizes. If you think you're gonna walk out ahead, financially, from an arcade, you're mistaken. House always wins. If you walk out with a bunch of stuff, you were thoroughly entertained, but you spent more than they lost, guaranteed.

  • The cluttered string serendipitously tip because soup chronically sniff barring a defective step-daughter. absorbed, clear tuna

  • I actually kicked serious butt on one of these machines one time. I won like 15 times, sometimes multiple times in a row. They had to put in another ticket roll. Of course, it had to happen the day after someone came in and bought up ALL of the nice stuffed animals for a children's hospital donation...robbing me of even the right to be angry about it. XP

    • He described how. All the kids in engineering, drafting and design classes whom the popular kids called, "nerd?" This. This is what happened to them. They design, engineer and build the things you use every day.

  • the house always wins. It's just like politics: the VOTER will ALWAYS lose against politicians, because they CHEAT.

  • I feel so weird with this guy near kids

  • Throw on two more photo sensors for upstream and downstream target lights, and measure multiple iterations for a proper sample size.

  • How is it even legal for the arcades to use machines like these, that obviously trick consumers?

  • I will never think about Chuck E Cheese the same way ever again


    • The music isn't that loud, and his voice is strong and clear. Would you rather watch a video of someone talking in a robot voice with no background noise for 7 minutes?

  • Such a wholesome video

  • What about stackers!

  • Sounds like the beginning of a class action lawsuit against golf land.

  • Who thunk it, arcades are scamming you beyond all truths

  • Only God and Jesus Only

  • Him: Talk normally Me: Is he speaking english

  • Lol

  • Lolololololololol

  • Well of course. Can't have someone with a gadget in a backback to empty their machines in one sitting. Think about it. These arcades are made to make a profit for the owner. The only way that's possible is to rig the machines. Otherwise it would turn into a charity hall.

  • I actually managed to hit the jackpot once when we went camping. Must've been lucky.

  • he is wearing a He-Man shirt

  • What if you made the longest fishing pole and had a line that extends food and wait till it gets to the bottom or something and have a stand where the pole can sit and a container that can let go of food idk that would be cool.

  • "I'm using an advantage I might have created myself." HAHAHAHAHAHA

  • This is so true. I have seen the light go PAST the jackpot when hitting the storm stopper, and then it says it hit the light BEFORE it. Totally rigged
