I’ve also had a sneaky suspicion that carnival games were rigged, and this story has pretty much confirmed it! Henry Gribbohm, from New Hampshire dropped $2,600 at his local carnival and came away with a banana.
No, seriously. Gribbohm first spent $300 trying to win an Xbox Kinect on the ‘Tubs of Fun’ game. Unfortunately he lost and went double or nothing and still wasn’t a winner.
The New Hampshire father left and came back with his life savings $2,300 and guess what… he lost it all! There is some good news from this story, he did walk away from the carnival with a $2,600 rasta banana.
Even people on Twitter have responded.
