(WLKY) - A New Hampshire man is considering filing a lawsuit after losing his life savings on a carnival game.

The man says he was trying to win an Xbox Kinect at a game that involved tossing balls into a tub.

The man says during the practice throws it seemed easy, but once the game started, something changed and the balls kept popping out.

He kept trying to win back his money by going double or nothing.

In the end, he was $2,600 in the hole and all he has to show for it is a stuffed banana with dreadlocks.

He has filed a police report and the game has been shut down pending an investigation.
