Way to go there in the UK !! This is a great way to play to the doom pron addicts and make a few coin along the way. I love it!!!



It’s all fun and games until you’re battling for toilet paper and soap.

An arcade owner in England might just cash in on the coronavirus outbreak by stocking claw machines with must-have sanitary products in the fight against the viral disease.

Rob Braddick was recently struck with inspiration after noticing that the toilet paper was in short supply at his local grocery store, and stocked up on the household essential. Then, the owner of Devon’s Ho Barts Amusement Arcade mostly swapped out the toys that filled the claw machines with TP, as well as in-demand hand sanitizer and soap.



"We also have a large machine that used to have a Spider-Man doll, but now there is a large Curex soap in there — that's the Rolls-Royce of hand sanitizer,” Braddick told news agency South West News Service (SWNS) of the new prizes.

They need these in all the arcades, especially those on the cruise ships now.

I can see these being broken into pretty easily.

In poor taste as well.

That's how they get ya. You'll burn through a payday worth of quarters to get that little bottle of alcohol sanitizer after you realize your joystick hand has suddenly turned into a Coronavirus fiesta.
