Super Safi’s Stats & Strategy Special: Minigames – Claw Machine!

Salutations Senors, Senoras, Senoritas, Statisticians & Strategists,

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter ‘S’)

Hi, I’m Super Safi and you may remember me from such stats and strategy posts as KEM Farming and the advanced losing-to-win Superheroes battle strategy.

What better way to spend your time than talking math. So from time-to-time, I’ll come to you with a post that delves into the wonderful world of numbers, stats, and/or strategies.

While we’ve previously discussed Springfield Downs and the Go Kart Track a couple months ago, over the next few weeks, we’ll continue to look at most of the Minigames found within our game. After discussing the Rocket Launch Pad yesterday, we continue our journey today with Claw Machine!

 

CLAW MACHINE

The Claw Machine minigame can be played every 6 hours. It cost $1,000 cash to start a game. Once the game starts, the claw will go and catch a lobster if you are successful or will return empty handed if you are not. If you are unsuccessful, you will still be awarded 50 XP. If you are successful, a random reward may be given to the player.

These are the rewards from the Claw Machine:

50

Miss

40.00%

Carved Ice Sculture

($2,600 in store)
8.00%

Rabbit Hedge

($1,300 in store)
8.00%

Patio Table

($1,400 in store)
8.00%

Gas Pump

($1,300 in store)
8.00%

Phone Booth

($1,200 in store)
8.00%

Gazebo

($5,600 in store)
6.45%

(6.67% if own Sir Love-A-Lot)

Woodchipper

($5,600 in store)
6.45%

(6.67% if own Sir Love-A-Lot)

Gargoyle

($7,500 in store)
6.45%

(6.67% if own Sir Love-A-Lot)

Sir Love-A-Lot

(Unique item)
0.65%

 

The rarest reward is the unique item, Sir Love-A-Lot. As none of the rewards offer any XP or cash bonus, it is not really beneficial to invest $1,000 in the game for an opportunity (60% chance) to win a decoration that is already available in stores for only a few hundred or thousand in game cash more.

Do you still play the Claw Machine? Do you have Sir Love-a-lot? What stats or strategy related topic would you liked discussed? Share your thoughts. You know we love hearing from you. And be sure to come back tomorrow for the Scratch-R.

  1. I have never won anything from the claw. Its a waist of cash. I got it last year i dont play it anymore.

  2. As far as I know, shortly after this game was introduced EA removed Sir-Love-A-Lot’s uniqueness. It should still be possible to earn multiples, and some of the comments seem to bear that out. 😉
