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


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

When you create a poll thread, you can choose to let each member vote for multiple choices, or just one. This thread is the former. That is why you see more votes than members.

Vote early and often, my friend! :)

A poll can either allow people to vote for one option (signified by circle selectors) or more than one option (signified by square selectors). So the percentage of a one option poll tells how the voters divide amongst all the choices while a multi-option poll tells the percentage of voters agreeing with each of the given choices.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

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?

For the record, I voted “maybe“.

I’ll probably take a couple turns at it just for the goofiness factor. And probably to take a selfie, in a “look at what stupid crap I’m doing now” kind of thing.

I’ll get a picture of myself pretending to take a leak on it without putting any money in.

In watching other play several times, the game always at least initially grabs a ball. However, in the several times I watched, every time the ball fell out of the claw before getting to the chute.



I have seen it where the claw did not grab a ball. I think the free extra attempt may be a fail safe against that happening if it was supposed to be a winning play and the claw didn't grab anything.

Genius idea for a game like this. Been making a lap through downtown several mornings each week and this game almost always has someone playing it, along with a group watching. It seems to be able to come close to the same type of social table game atmosphere from a machine. I wonder if other arcade style games could also work well. One of the few times I didn't see someone playing the downstairs one, there was someone playing the one upstairs, with a cameraman filming, most certainly for some social media product. After carefully moving the claw and winning he said to the camera "this is my new game".

Makes sense.

That encourages people who don’t read the rules to think they won with skill on the second attempt.
