"Henry Gribbohm, 30, lost $2600 – his entire savings – on a game called Tubs of Fun at a Manchester, NH., carnival.

He wanted to win an Xbox Kinect (retail value of around $100), but quickly lost $300 on the game when the balls he tossed bounced out of the tubs.

Instead of cutting his losses, he went home to get the rest of his savings, which he lost as well in a few rounds of double or nothing.

'You just get caught up in the whole "I’ve got to win my money back," Gribbohm told CBS. 'You’re expecting the kids to win a few things, let the kids have a good time,' Gribbohm said. 'It just didn’t turn out that way.'

Gribbohm went back to the carnival the next day to complain.

'It’s not possible that it wasn’t rigged,' Gribbohm told CBS. The man running the game gave him back $600 and a rasta banana, too."
