Have you ever seen those coin-operated machines, in which you stick in a dollar, move a claw around via joystick, drop it down, and hope that the claw will pick up and bring you back the stuffed teddy bear? In Korea theyâ€™ve perfected these machines, and put Canadian claw machines to shame. What makes these machines so seductive is not the prizes that are nearly impossible to win, but the way the currency works around here. Cash is king around here, so people mostly pay in cash. unfortunately, this leads to copious amounts of change dangling in your pockets. Instead of gathering all this change, it’s best to disburden yourself on these machines.
