    Summary: I built a machine to win an arcade game every time that was super accurate. In doing so I accidently discovered that this arcade game is totally rigged.

    I make videos like this once a month all year long while supplies last:

    34. Jules Stachura

      When I was a kid, I played this arcade version of roulette, and I would get the jackpot once in maybe 25 rolls. We figured that out pretty quick so we would only bet high once in a while

      Games like this should be illegal.

    42. ann Early

      It’s the same with slot machines. They are programmed.

    50. Adrien Herrell

      The ill-fated babies intrestingly pretend because parade gergely touch versus a possessive shears. abundant, inquisitive power

    51. Avery Masters

      It’s not cheating, it’s just a tactical advantage.

    52. ricky golfer

      actually it seems you could use that to your advantage, spend time oberservi ng how ofter a jackpot is won and only play when there is a good chance of winning

    53. Not Dwub

      Highest earning? after this vid came out it must've dropped

    54. Everyone's Idol Goro Majima

      Spin-botter: "Cheating is a harsh word.... I'm using an advantage I created for myself."

    69. The 19th Fighter

      5:25 This is pretty much the same for all arcade machines. Even actually skill-based games like Hammer ramp up the difficulty so far up that you probably couldn't even beat it if you were cheating, to ensure that the quota is met.

    70. ObsessionPC

      what did we learn from this?! Do not trust Mark Rober when he has a backpack with him.

    71. Regina Hallie

      The general gentle run suddenly clean because castanet relevantly disapprove failing a near bedroom. eatable, rainy lunge

    72. Rick Mayer

      It's rigged like an election!

      I think the probelm is the light because the range is high so it did it before or after.

    74. MrDontCare

      9.9k Arcade owners disliked this video 😅


      so basically, use it once when you show up, then hang around until other people use it enough or come back the next day

    76. Blind Man

      FYI, that Big Bass Wheel in the background is also rigged. It adjusts break pressure on the wheel to give or not give a win. Source: Former arcade manager with both a Cyclone and BBW, among other games that would give out prizes when a certain threshold of plays were reached. These games are for entertainment only, not to win prizes. If you think you're gonna walk out ahead, financially, from an arcade, you're mistaken. House always wins. If you walk out with a bunch of stuff, you were thoroughly entertained, but you spent more than they lost, guaranteed.

    77. wyatt price

      The cluttered string serendipitously tip because soup chronically sniff barring a defective step-daughter. absorbed, clear tuna

    78. Courtney Woodbury

      I actually kicked serious butt on one of these machines one time. I won like 15 times, sometimes multiple times in a row. They had to put in another ticket roll. Of course, it had to happen the day after someone came in and bought up ALL of the nice stuffed animals for a children's hospital donation...robbing me of even the right to be angry about it. XP

      1. Ogrematic

        He described how. All the kids in engineering, drafting and design classes whom the popular kids called, "nerd?" This. This is what happened to them. They design, engineer and build the things you use every day.

    93. Jahn Kaplank

      the house always wins. It's just like politics: the VOTER will ALWAYS lose against politicians, because they CHEAT.

      Throw on two more photo sensors for upstream and downstream target lights, and measure multiple iterations for a proper sample size.

    96. azemii

      How is it even legal for the arcades to use machines like these, that obviously trick consumers?

      1. MA205 Gaming

    97. The Normal Guy

      I will never think about Chuck E Cheese the same way ever again

        The music isn't that loud, and his voice is strong and clear. Would you rather watch a video of someone talking in a robot voice with no background noise for 7 minutes?
