Most Boardwalk Games Not Rigged in NJ Town

NJ inspectors look for rigged boardwalk games in Seaside Heights

Inspectors fanned out along the Seaside Heights boardwalk Thursday, inspecting games of chance and arcade games to make sure they were not rigged against players.

Staff from the state Department of Community Affairs checked boardwalk spinning wheel games and arcade cranes as well as games of skill like bushel basket tosses.

Lead investigator Martin Silva says most of the games checked out fine, though a handful of violations were found, like games using software that was not state-certified. The violations carry a $250 fine.
