Guy Blows Life Savings on Carnival Game

YouTube

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.
