Hopefully, this piece of garbage masquerading as a casino game will never get enough action for anyone to know what a capped jackpot looks like on it.



Too late. The $5 game shows potential wins of $10 - $1000. The jackpot is already capped on it.

Ugh. Well, maybe we will be able to at least find out whether or not it spills over.

If anyone wants to see this in action there is 2 minute video on YouTube.

Search “go go claw slot”

People definitely clueless

Thank you for sharing that.

I hope that the inventors of this terrible game are really GD happy with themselves.

Actually, I think I like my House Edge assumption in my earlier post, though I make no claims to actually know that or the probabilities. A game that plays this slowly is probably unlikely to be cheap from a HE standpoint.

I suppose a claw game gives a new definition to a casino rake!

Also, labeling this a $1 denomination game (see Youtube video) is a blatant lie. There is no bet available that is NOT a multiple of $5, therefore, it should be labeled a $5 denomination machine.

Isn't that representative of the majority of slots?

How many penny machines can you wager only one penny per spin? How many are fifty cents the minimum?

Oftentimes I find a quarter machine with lower wagers than the penny slots. A penny slot with a minimum fifty cents bet versus a quarter machine with a one credit minimum.

The penny machines often relate back, in one way or another, to the number of lines or ways that a player can win. I know that there's no law that says that the denomination has to make sense.

Other than the jackpot, for this game, it's binary: You either win or lose and the amount won (if you win) is some multiple of $5. The only exception is that progressive wins won't necessarily be a multiple of $5, but $5 denomination VP machines with progressives can go up in penny increments if they want to, so I don't personally consider that reflective of anything.

Saw a video of this on Vital Vegas twitter account. Reminded me of some of those scammy machines you see in cruise ship casinos.

Voted No in the poll.
