Win at the Crane Game Every Time

The investigators at Braniac have figured out the secret to a sure win at the crane game every time. Apparently, there’s a control box inside each of these machines that determine the chance of payout. If you have the patience and more importantly the time, to stand near the machine and watch it all day, you can figure out the winning payout pattern.

I think I’ll just stick with buying the candy grabber featured back in November.

    Oh, I should do this next time I go to dave & busters. I should figure out their patterns!

  • rbx6jm7man

    OMG!!!!! all this time! that’s how they cheated me out of 10 dollars!

  • beni

    Thats fun useless knowledge at its finest!

  • Lenka

    Heh…I want to see 10 people who just watching on the box and waiting for some dummies…. :D

  • vm3z9

    There was a time when i could get 2 or 3 in a row. Wonder what’s up with that pattern.

  • yume

    what if it’s set for every 20 times before a win?!!?

  • David

    I’ll keep that in mind the next time I see one of those things :D, might just help me when a girl comes over ;)

    if you’re close, try the one inside Dennys at Daly City. the grabber had a tight grip to it. i remember winning twice a while ago in less than 10 tries.

  • haz

  • phoenxiii

    LoL, david, thats so true haha, way to win a girls heart, you get to show off your skills and the toy can be a gift on the spot hehe

  • Dexter Kanuto

    Those damn machines are total Rip-Off. Money grabbers and anti-human patience, just for a crazy-stupid grabber/grappler to get a mini plush toy. If you don’t have patience, don’t play it!!!

  • Dexter Kanuto

    Plus, why place a sort of Blackbox type device inside the machine? Is that fair, for others?

  • David

    ^ Just gotta beat the system thats all :D but I wonder if the system works the same as here in Canada tho, if they have the black box and the winning ratios.

  • heartofjosh

    Just buy a damn stuff animal and quit wasting your time! :p

  • Dexter Kanuto

    heartofjosh I concur wid u…a plush toy isn’t dat expensiv…so wel buy it den

  • David

    Haha, try doing it at build a bear, and you’ll see how exspensive those teddy bears can be. :P

    Darn it, no crane without a carnival, no carnival until september. I’ll let you guys know if it works in about 8 months :P

  • Floorgasm

    Haha, I kept winning these at a theme park. You’re unlikely to grab one properly so you have to look for a machine that’s quite full and knock one over into the hole.
