I found this: http://coin-op.org/fair-play-pledge/

Companies part of the American Amusement Machine Association can no longer sell arcade games with an "auto-lose" feature (I think this includes Sega, so KeyMaster will likely no longer be sold unless a more skill based version is made). It looks like rigged claw machines may start to become less common. Hopefully this is the start of the end of rigged arcade games, but companies not part of the association can still sell rigged arcade games, and the association does not include arcade owners, so no arcade owners are likely to remove rigged claw machines, at least not soon.

Thanks for sharing. That's definitely awesome that they're heading in that direction. Hopefully soon all machines will be fair, although that means either cost per play will go up, or prizes will be cheaper.
