Now, this is what we call a grand prize!
With the shortages of hand sanitisers and face masks due to the current coronavirus outbreak, an arcade business in has decided to get innovative.
Found boxes of essentials
Arcade owner Rob Braddick from United Kigdom has decided to swap the usual prize items one could win in a claw machine game such as teddy bears and soft toys for essential items like toilet paper and hand sanitisers.
The prizes are available for grabs in his Ho!Barts Amusement Arcade, located in the small town of Devon.
Braddick told The Daily Mail
that he got the inspiration after noticing that such items were in short supply during the outbreak.
“We took the teddy bears out and put hand sanitisers in one and toilet rolls in another, just for a bit of fun and to raise a smile, ” the 48-year-old was quoted as saying.
He told news portal that that he found a box of hand sanitisers inside a cupboard at his home, so he decided to give people a chance to win them.
According to the report, Braddick placed toilet paper in one machine and next to it, a machine filled with Carex hand soap. These two machines costs 50p (RM2.50) for three tries.
However, the grand prize, Braddick beamed, is a big bottle of Carex aloe vera hand sanitiser, which is hanging from a machine called Giant Prize Pod PRO.
Hey, since buying these essentials is like a game of luck these days, might as well make it official, right?
