Henry Gribbohm claims he lost his life savings playing a carnival game

EPSOM, NH - Henry Gribbohm says he lost $2600 playing a carnival game and all he has to show for it is a stuffed banana with dreadlocks.

Gribbohm said he wanted to win an Xbox Kinect at a game called 'Tubs of Fun'.

In the game, contestants toss balls into a tub. When he practiced, it was easy but something changed when he started playing- the balls kept popping out.

Gribbohm kept trying to win back his money by going double or nothing, WMAR reported.

He dropped $300 in just a few minutes, then says he went home to get $2300 more and soon lost all that as well.

"It's not possible that it wasn't rigged," he said. "For once in my life I happened to become that sucker."

He went back the next day to complain, and the man running the game gave him back $600.

He split with the banana and the cash, and filed a report with police.

Gribbohm says he's considering a lawsuit.
