Features of Crane Games that Should Not Be Played Tips

When you see a crane game, you can’t help but want to play it. I worked for a game center for three years when I was a student. That’s why, I know how to get prizes in crane games. In this article, I will write about the characteristics of crane games that could stop you from getting prizes.

New products

The most famous one are “One Piece”, “Dragon Ball”, and “Demon Slayer” figures. The period from the first day of replacement up to the third day is quite dangerous.

The people who jump on such new products are usually “resellers” or “enthusiastic fans”, so there is almost no reason for stores to be lenient in their settings. The basic idea of a game center is to spice up games at first to secure sales, and then gradually lower the setting when the popularity settles down to give back to the light users and get rid of the inventory.

Probability machines

This is a classic. A “probability machine” is a machine that requires a certain amount of money (except for special settings) to win a prize. The amount you have to spend depends on how popular the prize is, how many prizes you have in stock, and your store’s policy, but you can expect to spend about 4 to 8 times the cost of the prize (25% to 12.5% of the cost).

A high quality prize with a cost of 800 yen will cost about 4,000 to 7,000 yen. Some people may think this is a rip-off, but that is a business. However, if you spend a certain amount of money, you can be assured that you will get the prize. So, if you really want to win a prize and you also have enough money, it may be the best thing for you than trying to win a machine with strong technical intervention elements.

Prizes that look easy to get

When a prize is placed just at the edge of a trap, or on a thin stick or small base, we probably would think, “This is easy! But that’s a trap. Unless it’s a stocked item, there’s no way you’ll be able to get the prize so easily. The following is an explanation of the three important factors in setting up prizes: good looks, large reactions, and stable sales.

How good it looks

Regardless of whether you can actually win the prize or not.It can be won at a glance will making it easier to get the first coin. In a sense, this may be the most important factor in setting up prizes, since the first 100 yen must come in to make a sale. Whether or not people will continue to play depends on the following factors: the size of their reaction.

The size of the reaction

Simply, it is how big a movement the prize makes. Even if it looks like it moves a lot, but in fact it has barely moved from its initial position, you may think that since it has moved so much, you can get it if you try several times. Then the hellish string of coins begins.

Stability of sales

The store wants to release one coin for every 3,000 yen, but if some people take it for 100 yen and some people don’t take it even after spending 10,000 yen, it is very difficult for the store to handle such unstable operation because it is hard to adjust the settings. Also, I have the impression that stores often hesitate to make difficult settings for prizes that have been easily taken even once.

A prize that looks easy to win is usually one that has lost its stability in sales. This means that sometimes it is easy to win a prize and sometimes it is a tough, so if you are passionate and willing to try hard, this may be the prize that you need to pay special attention to.

Crane games in shopping malls

This is because most crane games in shopping malls are probability machines. In addition, the stores  will not let the customers to win the prizes so easily and sometimes they’re not willing to let the customers win the prizes. This is because crane games in shopping malls do not need to attract customers. Most of them charge 200 yen per game, so it is a waste of time to play.
