It's a clever concept. You have to admit it.

Skill game? Here's your skill game suckers!



Itís a clever concept like Three Card Monte is a clever concept. I wonder if it will also make clever use of shills?

I just wrote up a page on the game, Cash Grab. You can see I decided to refer to the game as Cash Grab as opposed to Go Go Claw.

As always, I welcome all comments, questions, and corrections.



Well played!

Heatmap,

Thank you for sharing that video!

I guess the moral of the story is: If itís a game, it probably cheats.



im going to have to ignore this was said - as it has been my main objective since day one of coming here

Why not make this machine somewhat skill based? Is it impossible to do that?

Iím not sure. If it was, ĎImpossible,í then the, ĎImpossibility,í would likely have something to do with satisfying minimum return requirements.

I think that could be done legally. They could achieve the 75% rule the same way slots do, but making wins dependent on past performance. Cue -- enter the vultures.

In this case, I think giving everybody a fair and equal chance is the way to go.

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Not sure if this entirely pertinent, but we ALWAYS used to win the JUMBO prize at games of skill at our big ol' Amusement Park. Until they changed the rules, that is.

We gave away all the GIANT GORILLAS but I still have some of the ELECTRIC GUITARS.

- I suspect Mrs Q will make me give away most of those, too.

......................


all of the poll's percentages add up roughly (rounding) to 189%

I don't get it

but then, there's a lot of stuff I don't get

Edit - I think I got it

the poll was intended to be comical so the percentages are also comical

is that the ticket? - I think that's the ticket - sorry for being so slow

Can someone save me time here. I got a little wet(can I say that here?) when I saw talk about "40% of the amount wagered is put into the jackpot". Now down to an 8% meter move, but then someone mentioned it was capped.

What amounts do they start out at, and what amounts do they get capped at?
