AN incredible half-mile of arcade tokens has won a thrilled child the incredible prize of a Chupa-Chup in their choice of flavour.
The tokens, won on Whack-A-Mole, Crossy Road and basketball-dunking games, numbered in the tens of thousands and convinced eight-year-old Tom Logan a big prize was due.
He said: “What a round. I was unstoppable. And I’ve got the tokens to prove it.
“The sheer amount of them, even folded they’re hard to carry. It took a full hour just to feed them into the counting machine. A small crowd gathered.
“What will I choose? The top-of-the-range Nerf gun? The 32-inch Sony 4K flatscreen? The original in-box Nintendo 3DS from March 2011? Surprised nobody’s picked that, these last seven years.
“Ah, it would seem my tokens are insufficient. Instead I will have this cola Chupa-Chup.”
Arcade employee Nathan Muir said: “Interesting fact – if you had enough tokens to stretch all the way around the entire globe, then to the moon and back, you could afford two Chupa-Chups.”
