Is it time to get a better grip on a popular game? One lawmaker thinks so.

FOX's Steve Rappoport reports: 

You can find these at just about every arcade... But are the odds of winning a prize from a claw machine really fair?

New Jersey state Senator Nick Scutari wants to clamp down on the game, calling for better oversight. Critics say operators can easily rig the machines by setting the odds and controlling the strength of the claw when it drops...

They also claim the big prizes are nearly impossible to capture, but gaming industry officials disagree, saying it's in their best interest to let customers win prizes, so they'll keep playing.

Scutari proposed legislation that would add safeguards to the machines, ensuring players have reasonable odds of scoring a prize.
