LOL, this clown is the one that seems to pop up every year to self-promote himself... except there's no MSF for him to make a big deal at this year. I love some of the comments on the story... I bet we all know who made a lot of them, lololol....

That would be Wade Shows, with the white/teal/pink canvas.

Lead used in star joints always have imperfections, Thus making them like a knuckle ball, But winnable! As far as the hoops, the small print says not regulation!

Its funny how they pick games that can be won, and usually have decent help running them.

What if they belly'd up to a balloon store with some kook in it? Now thats a news story, lol.

just whiners. i broke in the business in a machine gun.by the end of the season i could shoot it out every time, usually with a little shot left over. could shoot it out BACKWARDS about 60% of the time. i agree with hippy bill and add, or a good tub agent![:D]

You know... If this is their logic, I think the casino is rigged too because I never win there!

I have been a mark long enough to know which games I am skilled at and which ones I am not. Sometimes I win, others I don't. It's just called having a lucky day. [;)]

I've seen top basketball players miss free throws at NCAA tournament level. Doesn't mean it's rigged!

Of course the star basketball player kept missing the shots.

It was all a put on for that news story. O look im a star basketball player and i keep missing my 15 dollars are gone.

Ive seen people win on the basketball and ive seen people win on shoot out the star. just play on a little bit of money and have a good time and try it out. dont keep spending and spending then cry that you lost all your money.

The water race games are always fun because their always is a winner on them. balloon darts always fun too along with skee ball.

Theirs always plenty of games on the midway where you can win.

I always have to laugh that they complain about the sites on the guns. We heard that on our cork gun (that by the way was shoot till you win). I used to adjust the sites to they were fairly on and the next kid that would come up would through it down on the counter and nock it off site.
The balls being over inflated is always another stupid arguement. If you don't like something about a game, don't play.
Face it every game from here to casinos and the lottery have odds. As long as the game operator is not lying about the game (i.e. saying the baskets are round when they are really oval), the game isn't rigged. I have a problem with the operators lying and not disclosing all the rules.
It is what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.

Another favorite is the rope ladder.

I love to hear people complain about that. The joint operator will climb the ladder with the greatest of ease, push the buzzer and hop down.

People standing around will mutter, and I quote, "there's a trick to that."

Well no kidding!!![:0]

If there wasn't a trick, every mark out there would win and the joint would fail. Stop complaining, learn to play, and you might win. It's like Benjibear said... Casinos, lottery, etc. all have odds and chances involved.

I like to think most games are not flat, just a good challenge.
