Inspectors Check for Rigged Games on the Boardwalk

Inspectors from New Jersey’s state Division of Consumer Affairs have been checking up on boardwalk games to make sure they aren’t rigged. Overinflated basketballs, under-inflated balloons, and unapproved software in arcade games are all unsurprising measures that might make a game more difficult for contestants to win. Each violation carries a $250 fine and inspectors are empowered to shut a game down if the violation is egregious cannot be immediately corrected. A recent trip to Seaside Heights proved the playing field is a little more even on the boards this year. Fair is fair, but remember that someone gets fired every time you win a giant-ass panda. []
