That's a great video for the carnies. Seeing somebody win like that will just encourage more people to play the games, no?

Almost all games/joints have had limits to the number or types of prizes a mark could win, long before this guy thought he could take credit for that.
He claims he won and gave away a "quarter of a million" prizes?! 250,000 is a lot of slum and plush...do the math even divided by 50 years.
Glad he enjoyed all that time it took to win those prizes...sort of like Dick Haymes in, "State Fair", practicing tossing hoops in the barn all year, before the carnival returns.

Seeing him leaving the midway with a bunch of plush reminded me of a family who ran a bunch of games....every hour they would have their youngest child walk down the midway carrying a HUGE prize, bigger than the kid, and the marks looking at him enviously thinking if THAT KID could take home a prize like that.......
