    Default Claw games are really just sophisticated slot machines

    Ever play a claw game and wonder why the claw is so ridiculously weak? Turns out it's the same reason so many spins on a slot machine end up being losers.

    Very interesting video explaining the inner workings and a bit of the history of claw games here.

    I would say I have won something 8/10 times I've played on those things. There are a few that have a trick to them though and I only play those. They are hard to find these days though. Basically the particular machine I know of, when the claw is at the bottom and is closing, you have to press the "down" button again right when it closes properly and it will clamp it shut tightly. I've won every time I've played one of those ones. The other 20% is when I've played the ones that don't have that feature.
