Machine Games

The most notable game that used a machine was the 1930s claw machine or claw crane. These were early mechanical arcade cabinets where players would insert a nickel and turn a small wheel that would move a crane. The goal was to pick up a prize like a sweet candy and deliver it to a chute where it could be retrieved. Due to the similarities in chance like a slot machine, the claw machine is still illegal in one province of Canada. The popularity of these games grew in the 1980s as they were introduced to pizza restaurants, grocery stores, and arcades.
