I thought it was common knowledge that most carnival games are "rigged" to some extent. Yes, he is a sucker and no, he doesn't deserve his money back for losing all common sense and self control.

Since when can you go double-or-nothing at carnivals? Sounds more like a casino..

Police said they’re investigating to determine if there was any fraud. Meanwhile, Gribbohm said he’s considering a lawsuit.


I hope he sues and the court takes his OTHER life savings \:D

dumbbutt. We know they are all rigged. Those basketball hoops are always smaller than regulation and the little bowls for those ping pong balls are very very small. Agree hope the guy sues and puts all his court cost on a credit card so he will not only lose the cost but have to pay interest. $2600 stupid tax

He just needs to tell the local news station he's gay and the carnival game took advantage of him. He'll get some good folks behind then!
