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.

Being in a loveless marriage must have been really difficult for you guys all these years, I'm glad you were finally able to earn you wife's love by winning a game that involves dropping balls into cups. Remember folks you're only worth the amount of love directly proportional to you're mastery of an inane skill.

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

@Verbed If I have zero comprehension skills, you somehow managed to end up with less than that. To quote the video (at 14:17):"If you drop exactly four balls every spin, which is pretty easy to do you will end up with 48 out of the 50 balls with the time you are given [...]" He then proceeds to point out that you'll have to do two drops of 5 in there somewhere, which he personally prefers to get in at the start but it's fine to do them at the end as well. The original comment here says: "all using the technique from this video of mashing the button 4 times following a slight pause", which describes exactly that tactic. 4 quick drops, followed by a pause is the proper way to play this, as said in the video and also clearly distinct from just mashing the button however many times. So go work on your own comprehension skills before saying stupid things. (jk, everyone makes mistakes.)

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.

@K A You’ve just awoken a memory I suppressed from my childhood. Me and my brother went to a small arcade at a pizza place with $20 our parents gave to us. I went to the claw machine and easily scored a plushie on like my second or third try. Confident in my abilities, I asked my brother which plushie he wanted, and he pointed to a spider in the shape of a ball (it was around Halloween at the time so all of the plushies inside were Halloween themed). Anyway, I attempted to get that spider, but it just kept falling out. But I didn’t give up, even when my brother was begging with me to not spend our all of our $20 on that stupid spider, I was determined to get that damned spider. But alas, I failed. I believe that the spider’s unique shape was what caused it to be so hard to catch, for the claw couldn’t pick up the round spider.

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.

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 Hace un mes
@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 did this once, even when I was a kid. There was a coop space shooter game at the Chuck E. Cheese where multiple people worked together. Well, it turns out, if you had literally any number of players more than 1, it was trivially easy to play forever on a single play, even for 2 children. I only had my brother, but it was never hard to rope some other kids into it and teach them how to survive forever with only 1 or 2 wasted plays if they agreed to give us 200 tickets. There was no competitive element at all, so no kid had any incentive to break it except boredom, and they could just intentionally die without screwing anyone else over. Me and my brother got a GameCube this way. Unfortunately, they removed the game after only a few months, presumably because we had stupidly told the counter guy how we got all those tickets.

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.

I work at a Main Event and let’s just say, there is no profiting. There’s one dude who comes in around once a month and just plays a single game (milk jug toss, and he’s really good at it) as many times as he can and has accumulated 2 million points (what you use to redeem prizes) and even he tells me there is no profiting, he does it as a way to give back to the community by giving away all of the prizes he wins to little kids. Main Event is a children’s casino but the only thing you get as a reward of spending your hard earned money on is a Frozen Elsa sing along microphone that will probably break in 2-3 business days

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.

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.

Aircades are amazing places, even in my 20's. However, theyre impeccably overpriced. I remember growing up going to disney quest for $40 and every single game inside was free. They had hundreds of games, experiences and things to do. Arcades need to take the theme park pricing model, entrace fees and then upsell once theyre inside. Paying per machine is like paying per ride at a theme park, seems silly and adds up awefully quick especially with families

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.

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.

I went to las vegas this summer for like 4 days. My brother had a basketball tournament there and we all just went with him as a family vacation. My sister and I didn't want to watch, so we went to an arcade. I watched this video like 2 days before we left. My eyes practically lit up when I saw that damn machine standing there. Thanks to this video, my sister and I (and even my brother on the 4th day when he finished the tournament and joined us) got so many damn jackpots. When I saw quick drop was there, I went with my sister to check out the prize section and we dreamt big on what we were going to get. I now have a new mic, a new good and clacky rgb keyboard (that came with a shitty rgb mouse), 2 new gaming headsets, a knockoff NES with 620 old games, 2 of these weird 3d star that expands to sphere toy things (idk how to describe it), a 10 ft long USBC cable, a 10 ft long lightning cable (ios charging cable), knockoff air pods, and 2 different colours of wired earbuds. We wouldn't have played the long game without this video. Thank you so much road work guy.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting one of these card based arcade models. The games were priced like a stock market. The more popular the game was that day the more credits it cost. No matter how I tried I could find nothing that didn't include a partial credit in the cost so there will forever be an unused balance on the card. I guess that's supposed to draw me back but it did not do that. Also, all the wins result in digital prize credits instead of tickets. So no more wandering around and gathering up freebees from games that auto play. All in all it was awful. Arcades are ruined forever.

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.

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.

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.

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’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 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

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 want to believe you but I don't. There's a very remote chance that the machine was broken and this could be true but I don't think so. All of the arcade games are rigged and they don't work randomly (luck) and they're not really skill-based. For example, the grip force of the claw cycles. When someone wins a prize the force resets and it can't be used to successfully grab a prize. The chance to win (and the grip force of the claw) increases in the proportion of played games. The arcade can adjust the played games/prizes given ratio.

15:00 huh. I wonder if the arcade workers actually set that jackpot higher manually at the start of each day, to give the illusion of increased difficulty. So that when you win it feels like so much more of an accomplishment. Either that, or it inflates the perceived consistent value of the jackpot for the first few players.

The max payout lock is to protect arcade owners from losing money if the machines malfunction and just don’t stop awarding tickets. On that particular system the default max is 1000 points. I usually set the max for a game at something like 1.5 to 2 times the game’s typical jackpot, and higher for games like pushers that someone might sit at longer. An employee would/should have cleared the card reader and awarded the points once it was determined there was no malfunction. (Just someone playing more in a row than usual.) The tickets count fairly slowly because the games are still built with the electronics to drive physical ticket mechs that dispense paper. The mechs get a signal to start the motor and send back a pulse every time a ticket passes. If you have any paper tickets look at the shape…the corners will have rounded cutouts. This is the notch that infrared light shines through to let physical ticket dispensers know when a single ticket passes and the next one starts. Card readers can be set to send the ticket “notch” signals back at a faster rate but there are limits as the game itself won’t catch them outside of its own logically programmed ranges. Some game and reader combinations could be set up to use multipliers and count much more quickly, but the techs can’t always make owners/managers understand it….so it doesn’t happen often.

@PyraMZD I guess I can see that. Some of the machines are pretty old. Well, ill take your word for it since you do seem to work with these kinda machines more. I was just saying what ive seen from other types of carnival style games, but I guess ticket arcade games like this seem to work a bit different. But yea, I guess youre explanation makes sense. Integrating new technology on top of old machines definitely can be a pain sometimes so your explanation is definitely plausible.
PyraMZD
PyraMZD Hace 2 meses
​@Eragon7 Oh sorry, I should have also reiterated (someone else already said it), but max payout is for preventing possible glitches. since the card reader is an additive to the game cabinets, it pulses to communicate that in such a way that resembles physical tickets passing through a sensor. there are always issues that can happen with games, but card readers can't do much to react aside from what users can setup. Besides, if we wanted low payout, we could set it that way. Redemption games are created with settings to change jackpots to suit the owner. it's actually more feasible to do it through a game's settings than by the card reader because max payout only kicks in DAY OF, when overall wins reach a total, not for every single player. if you're trying to stop players from "gaming the system", you can't do it like that because there's no way of telling how many people will spent a specific amount of time at a specific game. by the way, Quik Drop's jackpot is progressive. that means it increases little by little the more people play, so repeat plays are encouraged by this game specifically. the lowest jackpot you can set is 100. judging from this video, i think this specific machine is probably on default settings (where the starting jackpot is 500). if you're curious about how a game is set, you can easily look up "game name" manual btw, they usually do have the PDFs online for anyone to grab. a good example I can give you where it's for glitches: NBA hoops is a redemption game, but it gives low payout by default. you win never see the ability to win 100+ tickets on that game in one play no matter how good you are because it wasn't designed that way. one day we saw the max payout reach well over 2000. we've been having issues with our NBA games because of.. static believe it or not? the balls produce static and it messes with the voltage on the game. usually there's a mat that is supposed to reduce static as the balls come down, but they don't seem to work--i digress. if you managed to read this much, i commend you lol.
Eragon7
Eragon7 Hace 2 meses
@PyraMZD Ah ok. But then why does a max payout even exist? Its not like there is a need for it. The only thing that makes sense to me still is that it exists to limit how much people can game the system in a certain amount of time. So if you do find a machine, you can only win so much before it prevents you from winning more making it nearly impossible to actually make good money by gaming a single machine. (and prevents a lot of people from always doing it). I dont see any other reason why a max payout would have any reason for existing other than that.

@Seeker227 Also can I just say: i went over your other responses and as another fellow arcade employee, i super appreciate your pov as a worker... it's super heartening to hear of more places and workers in the industry who agree that a venue can still make money without being scummy. It's hard to find people who are enthusiastic about redemption arcades because of how much the industry was built up on scamming ppl. So it's not like i blame people for being negative and skeptical. We gotta fight that mess and do better. Have a good day. ✨
PyraMZD
PyraMZD Hace 2 meses
@Eragon7 idk if anyone has elaborated this for you--there's been a lot of lengthy convo since I last checked this thread--but the max payout mechanic itself does not prevent the person from getting their points. It won't let any other customer swipe/play until the max is cleared by an employee card and once that's done, the points are automatically applied to the last player's card. It's done via wi-fi, so the person would still get it even if they left the arcade. So in reality, Drew probably still got his points lol. I can only theorize that a possible way to get rid of them completely is to... unplug the card reader? But i've never tested this haha (bc it would be super messed up if possible).
Hey its an adventure
I went to an arcade a few years back to play one of the coin pushers, and loaded up all my points on the machine to get ready to spam it.

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 Hace 2 meses
@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

I recently went to a classic arcade while on vacation that used quarters. And I found this machine where the quarter goes down the ramp and is practically guaranteed to land in the spinning holes worth anywhere from 8-35 tickets. As soon as it lands in the hole the tickets come flooding out of the machine, making me immediately spend all of the rest of my $10 worth of quarters at that machine. I had also partially spent them at the Big Bass wheels which sadly only dispensed receipts. Overall I earned: 1 Fun Dip, 1 or 2 Packs of Pop Rocks, 5 Lollipops, and 2 packs of knock-off legos of a flamingo and a turtle.
