I couldn't possibly tell you how many times I've rolled up to a carnival and blown a small wad of cash playing games. Sure, they're fun... but it's all about those prizes. This YouTuber arms himself with solid science and discovers, it's all a big scam. No shocker, we've known this for decades... we've just never cared enough to prove it.

As you'll see, from small adjustments to straight up cheating, you lose the moment you agree to play. But it's still fun. Consider it entertainment for the evening.

Now that you're armed with a little knowledge, you need to keep in mind this... Just because you know it's a scam, don't ruin it for everyone else. These games are fun and nostalgic. How many young couples break that ice walking around, bonding on a midway? You wouldn't want to ruin moments like that would you?

As you see in the video, there are ways to win, but do you have the skill?
