My local arcade used to have an electric chair (game?) that gave you tickets for as long as you could hold on while it shocked you. I used to spend all of my tokens there because it was a sure fire way to get tickets, but in retrospect it meant that I often spent my entire arcade experience getting moderately tortured just so I could win "prizes" I could get from a dollar store, all for the low price of like 50 bucks.

When I was a kid I won the jackpot on this one game at an arcade and I won like 5,000 tickets or something. I used them to buy this inflatable fighter jet that was like 2 feet long and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. When I got home, I went to inflate it using my dad's industrial air compressor but it was so powerful that the inflatable jet immediately just exploded.

My husband took our 8 year old daughter to an arcade for the first time a week ago (she had just turned 6 when the pandemic began so we lost a lot of time taking her places in that time span.) Anyway, he called me from the arcade freaking out because she asked to play a claw machine, and she played 8 times in a row and won every single time. She does suck at literally every single other arcade game, but on claw machines, she is gold.

I used to work at a lesser known arcade, and there was a time when one of our sister locations went out of business and all their inventory went to us. So many plushies everywhere, the back areas were so full. So the technicians, in an effort to get rid of the inventory faster, made the claw machine games easy to win. One night, there were two vloggers that came in and played the claw games and left with two big garbage bags full of toys and freakin the fuck out. And I am so happy for them for that lucky stroke

Most modern arcades are just mini casinos targeted at children. Even those "skill" games like the claw are rigged by have the claw loosely grip while others blatantly give the illusion of skill required. The all have a garenteed payout ensuring the house always wins. I worked for company serviced and repaired those machines.

Sad. I was a kid in the early 2000s, well after the golden age of arcades, but i still remember going to a local arcade and having a ball playing Super Monkey Ball, as well as 80s classics like Pac Man and Dig Dug. I wish Dave & Busters had more games like that.

Even the payout itself doesn't need a house edge. If they are retail items that they got at wholesale, then the "value" of the prize isn't actually the equivalent cost of tickets. There's no way that place paid $75 for the prizes they sold to Dan, but he spent $72 in tickets to purchase them. At least a casino gives you cash. This place makes you buy items which they also sell for a profit using your "profits."

Try taking $5 into a casino that has slot machines sometime & play a game that has like a 10 cent bet, you might be surprised what you're able to work your balence up too. Or if you're in a rush you could just do a dollar bet five time's, you never know but you could win something fairly big with a bet that size. Be careful though cause the first time I went to a casino without my parents I gave someone a ride there & they put $10 in a machine for me to play for the ride & on my third spin at 50 cents I hit for $511 & was instantly hooked, I managed to cash out that night all that money but returned the next night, & the one after that & the one after that & before I knew it I was doing the equivalent of what you were doing with that ruler by walking around & cashing out credits people leave on machines once they don't have enough to place the bet they were betting, so they just get up & leave. Like if they were betting a dollar & got down to 80 cents since they can't spin anymore they either don't realize or don't care, but then i swoop in & cash out which adds up after a while, then the plan is to then gamble after accumulating ten bucks or so, which if it doesn't work out then it's back to looking for credits! Haha, sometimes though that would work out & a couple time's I turned credits I found into hundreds of dollars. I'm sure you're wondering why I'm telling you this, & I wish i knew but all i can say is I meant to say the first sentence & kept going & now we are here. Tbanks for being a good sport though, if you're even still reading that is. Man, now I feel like hitting up the casino! Lol

I used to work at an arcade. One of our Big Bass wheel games was broken where it couldn't auto spin, it could only be spun manually like when you play the game so everyone there exploited the hell out of it. Just inch the wheel onto the 1000 ticket jackpot and with the auto roller broken it can't roll for you since inching doesn't count as a roll. 1000 tickets per dollar. Easy peasy. I don't think they ever fixed it. It's been years. Ah good times.

I once played a Big Haul Truckers game where you just rolled a token down a moving rail. If it landed onto a truck you got a small prize, if you hit a flag on the back and it dumps the truck, you get tickets based on how many coins drop. Anyways I got my token stuck and jammed the flag, so the whole machine dumped it’s entire wad of tickets, over 1000. It was fuckin’ stellar.

okay so i just have to share an experience of mine with the ball drop game. when i was in the mall once a few years ago, my dad finally let us play in an arcade while we were at the mall. the ball drop game was nearby the entrance, and it looked like fun; i wanted to try it at least once. but, there was already someone there so i had to wait my turn. the only issue was, it didn't seem like the person playing was gonna leave anytime soon. the person was a grandma, maybe in her 50s. she was a fucking GOD at the game and almost always got all the balls into the cup thingy. she even had this like laundry basket by her side just catching all the tickets that she got from the game and it was FILLED TO THE FUCKING BRIM. THE TICKETS WERE EVEN ORGANIZED SO IT WASN'T LIKE THE TICKETS WERE JUST PILING ONTO EACH OTHER, MAKING IT LOOK LIKE THERE WAS MORE THAN THERE REALLY WAS. NO, IT WAS FIXED AND FOLDED, ALL PRIM AND PROPER. SHE EVEN REACHED THE CAP OF THE MAXIMUM PAYOUT, SO WHILE SHE WAS EARNING MORE TICKETS, THE MACHINE WAS OWING HER MORE AND MORE. oh my fucking god. i will never forget her.

When I was younger my sister had a Homer Simpson themed hotdog cooker and bun warmer(?) set that she either got from her birthday or won from the Easter Show. It was red and the boiler part in the middle had clear plastic, and there was like 4 or 6 metal or plastic poles to skewer the buns. I think we used it exactly once but it was perfect. My point is, hotdog-specific appliances are a necessity for every family.

My friends and I cheesed the "Deal or No Deal" machine at an arcade once. At the beginning of the game, the screen shows you the values of all the cases, and then plays a scrambling animation. Turns out this animation is actually how they mix up the cases (it's not just randomized with number generation afterwards for some reason), so we pulled out our phones and recorded the scramble in slow-motion. Then one person would play the game, stalling as long as they could, while the recorder would scrub through the video, following the biggest case. We could win the maximum amount of tickets every time with this method.
ArmadilloAl

It turns out that the speed at which those cases swap can be set by the operator as well....and it also turns out that I'm really good at following the cases. Back in 2010 or thereabouts, there was a DoND machine in the mall that printed out receipts with the number of tickets you won (though this machine called them points and not tickets). Since it wasn't physically printing the tickets, it wasn't limited by the physical number of tickets in the machine, so the cases actually went from 1 to 1,000,000 like on the real show. You could then collect these receipts and mail them in for actual prizes. There was a bunch of electronics and stuff, but the only one I remember for sure is that a $25 Visa gift card cost exactly 3,000,000 points. The game cost $1 per play, and I was good enough to win it 75% of the time. You do the math. By the time the game was changed to shuffle the cases at max speed (faster than I could track them), I had won a GPS system, a PSP, and at least $500 worth of gift cards. I've had similar results at various Dave and Buster's and places since then, but since they only have ticket prizes, it was usually just for fun and not actually profitable. That mall added a new arcade about two years ago, which had several of these machines. The ones upstairs were all at max speed so I never really played them, but there were two downstairs that were still beatable (but only on single play, oddly enough, not Double Deal). I took that for a couple packs of Pokemon cards, but the last time I was there a couple weeks ago, I discovered that one of those two machines was gone...and the second one was set to skip the shuffling entirely and go straight to "Pick A Case". It was the end of an era. RIP to my exploiting Deal or No Deal machines (2010-2022)

This is against the ToS for most arcades, doing so and getting caught will invalidate all of your tickets. Remember, arcade ticket machines are just gambling for kids. They're regulated by gaming laws (ie. gambling, same as casinos) and try to handicap the player. The point is for them to make a profit and if they cease to be profitable, they'll cease to exist.

5:36 - The machines are designed to dispense physical tickets, and counts them one at a time. The electronic versions are retrofitted onto the machine, but the ticket sensor will still count them one at a time. There are faster implementations, but that costs more money for a more expensive conversion kit (one for each arcade), and you need every penny you can get when you operate an arcade populated with drunk people. It's called Dave & Busted for a reason.

I used to work at an arcade and I know from experience that every single arcade machine, even the ones based on "skill" like quickdrop, have settings for the owners to change to tilt the odds in their favor. It's all based on how scummy the owner is. I've been to a few arcades where doing the same strat that drew did just didn't work, because they lowered the time and it was actually impossible to win the jackpot. The one that Drew was playing seemed mostly skill-based, so the owner didn't change anything off default, which is good. Just remember that if you had any "near misses" when playing a skill-based arcade game, it's entirely likely that it wasn't your fault and it was literally impossible to win, even if you've gotten the jackpot before

I feel arcade toys that were an insane amount of tickets made way more sense in the 80s. For example, when my dad was a kid he’d spend his lunch money after school playing pac man at near by convenient store. If a kid happened to live close to an arcade this how they could spend their time if they had an allowance or something. They could then collect their tickets for awhile if they wanted something specific Now I’d imagine that most of that shit stays there until it starts to disintegrate

Loved the video! I'm actually banned at my local arcade for profiting off of Pop the Lock, a 100% skill game that's almost I possible to rig. I grew up on rhythm games so my hand-eye coordination is pretty good. I'd go in about once a week and spend 100 bucks on a game card. 5 to 6 hours later I'd walk out with a couple game consoles and a lot of Bluetooth speakers. It was a lot of fun while it lasted
Aerial Adventures
Aerial Adventures 3 dias atrás
@Jamie Benson unfortunately not, I don't live near many arcades and the others that I visited either didn't have pop the lock or quick drop, or was charging so much a game that it was statistically unlikely I'd profit. The whole experience was honestly incredible, at my peak I'd walk in when the arcade opened, purchase a $200 game card, and just start playing. The ticket output was 1050 per jackpot (1000 bonus plus 50 for finishing all 50 clicks) and I had about 300 attempts with a game card. I believe the most accurate I had gotten was around 90-95% to get the jackpot, so I'd have around 280,000 tickets at the end of the day. Prizes I'd always go for were game consoles, which were 55,000 for a switch, and 65,000 for a Xbox one or PS4. I made the mistake of going in too many times in a short period and had ended up getting several grand over the course of a couple weeks, they had found out about it and approached me when I went in the next day. Pretty much they claimed I was cheating and kicked me out, even though they literally watched me play right before talking to me haha. I look at it as an absolute win since I used the money to get a good car and go skydiving for the first time. I haven't stepped foot into the arcade for about a year and a half now, so I could maybe try again. Honestly though I'm better off quitting since there's no way in hell I'm ever going to be able to do that again (friend went in a couple months after I was banned and let me know they updated all the prices and lowered the ticket output).

I don't know how or why, but every time my sister goes to an arcade she wins at least one jackpot, oftentimes multiple jackpots, and then comes home with some snazy prizes. Every. Single. Time. Sometimes it luck-based games, sometimes it is skill-based, but she doesn't seem to have a strategy or use skill!!! Whatever arcade it is, she always comes back with a fancy prize, usually something with blinky lights. If I knew her secret I'd share with with you, Drew, but I suspect it has to do with knowledge beyond my comprehension.

I remember doing one of those spin wheels and I got the jackpot like.. twice. Ended up coming home with a stuffed bear that was about two times the size of child me. This was an outing between my dad and I while my mom was on vacation. Her one rule was no stuffed animals She wasn't too happy about that one

I’ve been the kid to watch a grown man playing a game in the middle of a school day. My mom felt bad about missing some middle award school thing so she took me to an arcade during school hours (I chose the arcade and I don’t really remember the day of the week) but like 30 minutes into the time we were there, a grown ass man comes in and asked me to play a game I was currently playing and I let him cause you know turns. I think it was a fish game I was really enjoying but I figured that after he played a few I could go back later so I went and just played other games. Wrong. He played the fish game the whole time. Even when my poor mom tried to ask to let me play it, he told her to leave him alone I could play other games. My mom almost lost it and tried to do something but I just told her it’s no big deal that we could probably play other games. My mom did tell an employee though, so I did get to play the fish game and having a grown ass juman kinda glaring at me a bit when we left.

I work for a large arcade company in Orlando I service most of the arcades on I-drive. The reason it takes so long is that there has to be a distinct electric pulse for each ticket. The card reader detects each pulse. The games are not made for the card readers they are made for paper ticket dispensers. Also the maximum payout isn’t a deliberate thing it’s programmed by default into the inter card swiper. The people who set up the system were just to lazy to bother to change the limit.

Went to a Dave and busters on a half off Wednesday with my wife a couple years back. The ski ball machine malfunctioned and gave jackpots on every single play, it was insane. Spent so much money that day. My wife would guard the machine while I put more money on the card. Somehow a 6 year old girl slipped through and won a jackpot of course. She told her mom but she was ignoring her on her phone, fucking sucker! I have a card with over 100,000 tickets sitting in my junk drawer. Really do need to start spending those.

This video reminded me of the time when I was 18 & my fairly new girlfriend who was 22 managed the client relations/party planning department of a family fun center type of establishment. Somehow she would always come into possession of the leftover play cards whenever a party was thrown there & the client's had purchased too many cards than they ended up using. Apparently she had been stacking up those cards for a couple year's even well before her & I even met & she had just under ten grand worth which she just handed me one day. I may have been technically an adult on paper, but I was freaking stoked! So I invited like 5 of my equally immature friends & we went to town one day so hard that we ended up causing a scene & were getting odd looks from the staff, but I wasn't bothered as I was in my zone playing a similar game to the one you were playing in this video. By the end I bought every big prize they had, some even duplicates. The most expensive of which was this dope ass RC car, & a tactical survival device thingy that had a small TV, radio, flashlight, alarm siren, & a walkie talky that in the event of an emergency you could just wind up tp create the energy to power it up. All in all though the prizes all together were probably worth about $1,000, but like I said it took almost ten time's that worth of play card's, so luckily I didn't have to spend a dime though. Unfortunately though my girl at the time regretted giving me those because it seems that I ended up embarrassing her acting like a literal child in a candy store in front of her coworkers, but I really don't know what she expected me to do, at least I was dressed nice & looked good, so my impression couldn't have been all that bad, besides I could tell that they were just a bunch of dudes who didn't like me before even meeting me because I was dating their hot coworker, but I digress. Her & I lasted 4 more years after the fact so she apparently got over it, but that was one awesome day. The dude grabbing my prizes for me had to grap a latter & keys he was unfamiliar with as well, & most of my prizes had like a couple centimeters of dust on them.

I work at an arcade, we have QuikDrop as well, and it's one of my favourites to hit jackpots on. Fun fact: the difficulty is adjustable, and ours is set slightly easier, so you have enough time to do 4 in every bucket, and only 2 in the last one (or 3 in the last 2). Our jackpot is typically set lower, though (starts at 200 after someone wins and increases with each play).

I'm gonna be that person, but I just want it to be known somewhere that I tried signing up for Current last year when he had a similar promotion, and aside from the fact that I did not get $500 (and I don't care because I wasn't expecting to), I did not do anything with my Current card and I was immediately presented with an attempted fraud charge within the first week of my account existing. They tried to buy about $300 or so in children's playhouse stuff from a specific website??? I was alerted by the app and I just decided to close my account. There has to be a security hole somewhere, because I hadn't used my card or put my account information into anything else.

For anyone wondering about the slow ticket payout. A majority of modern arcade machines are still built with paper tickets in mind. The swipers we use are a modification, not the intention behind most machines. Due to this, the machine lets off 'pulses' to output the paper tickets. When we splice into that line with a swiper harness, we are limited by the game's pulses. As an example, look at the Ticket Time machine showed a few times. Those ticket rings use an RFID system to payout to the swiper. That game was made for swipers, so it can payout 25 tickets per pulse, rather than 1. Meaning it's payouts only take mere seconds, even for large payouts. Hopefully, over time, the arcade business will evolve to favor this faster payout system, rather than the archaic paper-based payouts. Source: I'm the guy who repairs those machines.

Hey Seeker, I work with a few card systems in the amusement industry. You can set the notch spacing setting to 10ms on most card systems. Benchmark struggles with anything lower than 100ms per ticket, but baytek, ice, and a few other manufacturers can get as low as 10ms per pulse or 100~ tickets per second. And if you're hybrid e+paper tickets, this won't break paper ticket payout. However from your post it sounds like you monitor tickets by splicing in the card system's notch input wire to the game's notch wire.
Seeker227
Seeker227 Mês atrás
@Ryan Stewart As stated, the game sends a pulse of voltage to a paper ticket mech. We remove that mech and splice the swiper harness into it to read those pulses. Yes, the game can operate without the swiper, but the swiper is what reads the pulses to give you tickets, and how you coin up the game, by splicing into the coin wires. Without it, you would ether need a coin and ticket mech, or to jump the coin wires together to coin it up. The swiper itself sends it's signal to an ELC (with Embed) to connect to the server. So yes, it is an entirely different machine, one that we modify with a swiper, by removing the coin and ticket mechs. Essentally, we just replace the ticket/coin mechs with a swiper. It's just a better subistute, but its still limited by the game itself. Idk how else I could explain this, however there are other techs in this comment thread who have verified what I have stated
Ryan Stewart

Sounds like absolute bs to me how would there be such a modification that can save a variable to a virtual account but it can only increase that variable at a set rate? and a modification? my brother in Christ it's an entirely seperate machine, you can literally remove the card swiper and still program and use it
