Guy Blows Life Savings on Carnival Game
Everybody likes to win, but at what cost?
A guy in New Hampshire is so competitive that it cost him. A lot. As in his entire life savings.
Henry Gribbohm allegedly lost his entire life savings on a carnival game. Seriously. Henry blew through $2,600 while trying to win an Xbox Kinect in a game called Tubs of Fun, where contestants toss balls into a tub.
Henry kept losing, but kept trying to win back his money by going double or nothing. He ended up dropping $300 in just a few minutes, then went home to get $2,300 more and lost that too! In the end all he got to show for it was a stuffed banana with dreadlocks.
Henry says he went back to the carnival the next day to complain and the man running the game gave him back $600. But he’s still convinced the game was rigged and is considering a lawsuit.
