Lobster Machine Causes Wallets To Feel The Pinch

CAPE CORAL, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The claws are coming out among lobster lovers in Cape Coral, Florida.

The Maine Lobster Game is a claw crane machine that is filled with live lobsters instead of the usual stuffed animals.

Chris Keslinger, who owns the Maine Lobster Game company which builds and distributes the machines, says players become obsessed with winning a fresh lobster.

He says, “These college kids once put in $400 and couldn’t catch one. Then an eight-year-old boy walks up, puts in $2 and catches two. People would rather catch a lobster than a stuffed animal because it tastes better.”

Keslinger assures that his machines aren’t rigged, and the claw is kept tight to give players a good fighting chance at catching a lobster.

However, he says a few snappers who are really “feisty” and refuse to be made into dinner give players a real run for their money.
