‘Whack a Bankster’ Game is a Hit!

The game is proving so popular that its inventor has to keep changing worn-out mallets.

The BBC reports that inventor Tim Hunkin says the ”Whack A Banker” machine at his pier arcade in Southwold, Suffolk, is proving a great investment.

Punters are promised a ”truly rewarding banking experience” and use a mallet to hit as many bald pop-up figures as they can in a limited time.

”You pay 40p to hit as many bankers as you can in 30 seconds as their heads pop up. It’s based on an older game called ‘Whack a Mole’,” said Mr Hunkin, 58.

”It’s proving very popular. I keep having to replace worn-out mallets.”

He added: ”The bankers are bald and all look the same because that’s how I think people see bankers – as faceless.

”And, of course, the bankers never really lose. If you win the game a banker’s voice says: ‘You win. We retire. Thank you very much to the taxpayer for paying our pensions’.”
