    It's even more intense when you try to win them a Teddy. I fail everytime.

    They only pay out a prize every certain amount of goes.

    So if you watch it until somebody wins, and then count how many tries until somebody else wins and then wait that amount of goes again then you’ll win every time.

    Should only take a couple of days.

    Sound advice.
    Perhaps I could travel earlier to do some scouting.

    There is a lot more luck involved.

    I won once years ago. And only because it had picked up two items so they were basically jammed inside the claws.

    I've never won on one of those bastard things. I've had better luck on the bandits and they're meant to be sodding stingy.

    I do think there is some kind of pattern to when the claw stays clutched or releases. Numerous times I think I’ve definitely got it, only for the claw to drop
    It last minute

    I have a friend who wins fairly often. But he has put a lot of money into them over the years.

    I wouldn’t say a pattern but I’d say it’s randomised to a stupidly low percentage. 0.1% so one win in every thousand attempts or something. Which means they effectively make £1,000 for a £5 teddy bear.

    Good business model lol.

    When you're watching porn on your phone and suddenly you're interrupted by a text from Mum popping up on the screen. The money shot you've been working hard for the last 15 minutes has been totally spoiled and the pictures of her new kitchen aren't even very nice.

    Avengers Endgame.

    I'm not interested in it, therefore, everybody should stop talking about it.
