If you’re in Austin this weekend for SXSW, we’re jealous. Major jelly going on. And for those of you who aren’t participating in the hours of tech, music, thought-provocation and the mad dash to Franklin Barbecue, you can grasp at the straws of fun or grasp at a few Nexuses or a Moto 360 or two.

The Google Store Claw machine is up and running at the Google Fiber Space over there and it’s had some exciting action on its first day of use. Several winners have been crowned just today with one taking away a Nexus 5X, another got hold of a Moto 360 for Women while a third clutched an ASUS Zenwatch 2 and a fourth grabbing an OnHub.

Of course, there are plenty of other prizes from the Nexus 6P to the Pixel C, Chromecasts, the Nest Cam and Google Cardboard, too. And yes, you, not in the #ATX, can get in on the fun by being on Twitter and ruling with emoji.

Send a tweet @GoogleStore, then put down 5-10 arrow emoji (⬆, ⬇, ➡, ⬅) and finish it off with #GoogleStoreClaw. Every night at about 7:30pm CT, @GoogleStore will hold a Periscope stream and execute some of the chosen entries. Maybe yours will be on there!

The fun goes on each night through Monday, March 14. Good luck!
