Skee-ball is a fun and exciting sport that can take years to master. Devotees may spend hours a day honing their technique to maximize the number of valuable tickets they can earn to redeem for various prizes.

Not everyone can afford the luxury of a home Skee-ball alley or a private Skee-ball coach or lessons. For these unlucky and impoverished, now there is a way to score big like the pros -- the Skee-ball Autobowler 9000!

Simply place the 9000 on the end of the track, aiming it appropriately; its rubber feet prevent it from recoiling and moving with each bowl. Select/adjust force and spin with the knobs, put the balls in the hopper, and let Autobowler do the rest! It may take a roll or two to get it properly aimed, but after that, just sit back and collect your tickets.

That large, garish cuddly toy you've set your heart on is as good as won!

       Nice concept, though it might have difficulty in arcades where the balls and lanes are non-uniform.
