When I was a kid, there was this arcade at a pool. People played EM pinball machines, barefoot on wet floors and as far as I know no one ever got fried.

Now, I certainly wouldn't recommend that craziness but I've only ever owned 2 or 3 machines that came with grounded power cords.

If the two prong plugs were safe enough for pinball manufacturers and arcade owners liability, they're good enough for me.

I couldn't find any instances of someone being killed by a pinball machine, but apparently 450 people die every year from falling of of bed. So you could increase your odds by leaving the pinball machine alone and spend that time installing bed rails.
