A dad gets arcade owners excited by sharing a simple trick that gets machines to pay out bigger prizes on a popular game.

Brian Burns shared footage of his score, which seemed to shoot from 205 to 260 in less than 10 seconds.

The higher the number of tickets at the “ticket eater” where players collect their winnings, the bigger the prize they can take home.

The 39-year-old’s TikTok account has garnered almost 2.5 million views since it was published last month, with many viewers saying they want to try it now and claim bigger prizes for themselves.

Social media users said the trick could get the dad in trouble if caught as he would likely be “escorted off the premises”, while Brian joked he could be banned next time.

Other viewers, according to SomersetLive, commented that his hack would likely have left him relatively empty-handed, as his Ticket Boost would make him “still not enough for a pencil sharpener set.”

The father-of-one claims he ended his hour-long visit with just 30 tickets but managed to trick his number up to 500 so his son could return at a later date and use them to claim a prize.

He posted cop emojis on comments, insisting it was “just a little fun” and not a big deal as he didn’t use the technique to claim an expensive item.

Brian said: “I only had 30 tickets but I ended up with about 500. I didn’t feel guilty. If I got caught, I got caught.

“My picture will probably be up next time I go, I’ll probably get banned. Maybe you saw the video. I kept the tickets for my kid for them to use it, so I tried that and it worked.

“When I came back this time, I thought about making a video. You’re talking about 30,000 tickets for a game console, so you’d be standing there most of the day and probably getting caught.

“The reaction was crazy. I’ve seen other people tag me and say they did it and they stand up for me against people who say it doesn’t work. I only put laughing faces and police emojis because it’s just a laugh.

“The stuff you get when you win is nothing, it’s like the stuff you get in the pound store, so just bumping it up to get a mug or something isn’t really massive I guess not. It’s a bit of fun. It’s not like I went in with a few pounds and topped it up to get an Xbox. I wouldn’t stay here all day and do that.

Brian says his “trick” only works on certain machines that don’t use barcode tickets, as they would recognize the same ticket being inserted.

The Glasgow-born player’s post has garnered more than 70,000 likes, with many mocking his trick but others claiming to be “excited” to try it.
