If you’ve ever tried to play the games of skill at amusement parks or carnival midways, you know how extremely hard it is for the average person to win. There are certain skills to beat the system, and Detroit car salesman Peter Drakos is a pro.

Starting at the age of 9, the now 64-year old ringer has won ridiculous amounts of toys in his lifetime. Truckloads. In a trip to Circus Circus in Vegas, his hotel room was so full of toys that it was impossible to move around in. What does he do with all those toys?

He gives them away. When he started as a young boy, he won enough toys to give one toy to each of the 200 students in his school. According to CBS News, Drakos estimates that he has donated over a quarter of a million toys to 50 charities.

In the game of big hearts, Peter Drakos is a grand prize winner.
