ok i tried it once and won nothing. how do you "miss?" i mean, i see a capsule, i go down, it grabs and i miss! can some one help me? i want to save my other account's try for when i know how to do this right!
I hate the Prize Klaw. I have eight accounts. One is an Asian. On that one I ran out of time. The second one I missed going into the chute. I ran out of time again. The third I got a yellow, got 200 KC. That one was my best. Fourth one I got a Cow Bank. Fifth one I got a Toy Digger. Sixth one I missed again, cuz I dropped my red one, and ran out of time. Seventh one I got a green. I dropped it into the chute. WW locked up, saying please wait and stuff. Lost whatever prize I got. Eighth was the worst. I got a green. I dropped it. I got another green. I ran out of time just an inch away from the stupid chute!!! How unfair is that? I think Ganz hates me. Or at least they don't care that I nearly cried becuz of it. I vow to never play the Prize Klaw again. Maybe someone will pity me in the Trading room and will trade me. IDK.
I have been experimenting with the way it works. Fortunately for me I have a few accounts to work with
If you drop the Klaw first thing, you stand a good chance of missing, but you can get the Klaw to move again and try for a second shot. It usually ends up being a red ball and they give W-shop items.
If you move direct to the firm grip, you stand a much higher chance of getting a green ball, BUT you also stand to come up empty-handed. Which means that you will clock out as well. No time to try again.
If you keep relatively close to the center and a BIT to the left you can pretty well get a globe and it seems to select more red than anything else.
I have been edging it slightly toward the firm grip side and I have found a sweet spot that MIGHT just work. Here is what I found. There is a green globe just past the mid point, don't get right above it, try just a bit to the right of it and drop the Klaw. This is what I mean.
This is way too hard for the kids. I tried on one acct and got the capsule in, then it popped out. Ran out of time to do another one. I will try it on my other accts later on since I have the opportunity, but am not expecting anything. Course, have never had any luck with real life claw machines, so maybe that is where my apathy is coming from. But they need to change it for the kids, as this is just going to be another source of frustration for them. A3
On my first account....I was very slow and careful...thought I had the claw lined right up with a green ball....until the arm just drops deep into the bin and you have no idea what it is going to pull out. I had beginners luck, I got a ball that had a cow piggy bank in it.
On my second account....feeling much more confident...I thought I had this all figured out...I went a bit to the left dropped the claw....nothing....so I went further to the left....still nothing....last try even further to the left and you guessed it... NOTHING....so much for the learning curve.
On my last account...I just went 3/4 of the way across the tank and dropped the claw...I kept what I got even though I knew it was just KC....I got 100KC.
Better LUCK next time as I think the skill is only in dropping it down the chute afterwards.
I want more turns.... just kidding I love the new game. Can't wait to try my luck again!

1) My DD went first. She pushed the start button and expected something to "happen" or moved. When it didn't, she pushed the Start button again. The game told her that her turn was up. Bummer. Lesson learned...don't push the start button more than once.
2) I tried the second account and got a red container. Made it all the way over to the chute and dropped it. Seemed centered to me, but it "bounced" off the tube. Game over.
3) My DS's account was next. Dropped the claw in the middle. Got a yellow container and made it all the way over and into the chute. Won 100KC!
4) I tried our last account and got nothing after dropping into the middle. Time to try a second time. Dropped into the middle and got nothing. Time up.
Score: 1 out of 4.
Good luck to eveyone! Don't push that Start button more than once!
