The TikToker explained that the prize is only secured once the button has been pressed the button again.

Social media users went wild for his arcade tactics, with many left feeling cheated after losing out on wins over the years.

One wrote: "I wish I knew this this morning when I was at the claw machines."


A third chimed in: "I used to work at Round 1, everything is rigged and we are told that we have to make the claws super sensitive lol."

And a fourth added: "It's true y'all! I got so many plushies because of pressing it two times."


The TikTok went viral and now boasts a whopping 29.3million views.

Brandon said in disbelief: How did this video of me winning a plush from the claw machine get 30 million views?"

We previously told how another bloke claimed to have cracked the code to winning at any claw machine.

But he used an alternative method, telling users how to set the machine into "maintenance code mode".

He begins the tutorial by holding the joystick making circular motions in an anticlockwise direction for a few seconds.

Talking through his actions as he speaks, the TikTok user then moves the stick up three times, down three times, left and right twice and finally up and down again.

He then hits the control button three times, which he claims will put the machine into "maintenance mode", which is "for the workers to test it."
