Claw machines are fixed / rigged – The b*stards!

Claw machines are more like slot machines than games of skill.

In fact it’s more like gambling and effectively should be banned for under 18 year olds, it’s that bad!

The machines do some quick maths to work out how much money they’ve generated the owners, the manufactures and/or the people that look after the machine. If they’ve made enough profit they will allow people to win but only actually allow 1 win within a random selection, all is not lost as 1 in every 21 goes could be a winner but again this is randomised.

What really annoyed us is that most machines don’t make this very obvious, it appears to the untrained eye that it’s a game of skill when actually if you knew the odds up front you might be put off.

The video explains it in more details, either way poor show and we will never play them again.

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
