Day or night, rain or shine, patrons fill the parlors and test their skill and luck at what has become the favorite national pastime in Japan: PACHINKO The origins of Pachinko are not clear. Some say it originated in the USA during the early 1900’s with a pinball-type machine that used nails to direct the balls. Ultimately, machines started appearing in Japan in the 1920’s and progressed into the characteristic round boards filled with nails to direct the balls that essentially were children’s toys. Balls were launched with wooden flippers and small prizes were awarded. Eventually the games became known as Pachi-Pachi. The first commercial pachinko parlor was opened in Nagoya in 1948. In the 80s, Pachinko madness exploded as electronics and computer technology were integrated into the machines. Today, pachinko games are equipped with HD video screens, surround-sound and computer light shows that mesmerize the players. Currently, Japan licenses approximately 15,000 licensed parlors (casino’s), 1.5 million machines and attracts over 18 million players, with thousands of professional pachinko players. This micro-economy generates annual sales of $280 Billion dollars: more than the GDP of most countries ! Technically, Pachinko gambling for money is “illegal” in Japan. Players buy the balls in buckets for about $0.05 cents each. The skillful (lucky) players that win the jackpots catch bucket loads of winning pachinko balls, much like a traditional slot-machine awards coins. Players take their winnings to a counter inside the parlor and receive small gifts such as stuffed animals, imitation gold coins, or some other trinket. However, from there the players take their worthless bauble outside the parlor to a window or vendor, usually at the side or behind the parlor, and exchange their worthless gift for real currency. Therefore, the pachinko parlors are, in reality, an illicit casino industry, technically illegal, yet overlooked by law enforcement. ************************************************************ How to Play PACHINKO The essential object of Pachinko is to shoot the balls into pockets to win more balls. It is a game of skill and chance combined. The machines use tiny 11mm steel balls that are poured into the front trough that feeds the shooting mechanism. When the player puts their hand on the shooting knob, the machine begins shooting the balls into the playing field. The velocity of the balls being ejected is controllers by turning the knob left/right. There is also usually a button on the side of the knob…skillful players that find that “lucky spot” can press this button and make the machine shoot the balls one at a time. The Pachinko machines are fairly standard in that they are all equipped with preset pin layouts that randomly direct the balls by simple gravity and random bouncing as they fall through the machine. Most machines also have a system of spinning wheels, hidden slots and ledges that further direct the balls. All machines also have a center jackpot pocket which is the player’s main target. There are also additional pockets which invoke payouts. Most balls simply fall unsuccessfully though the machine, however a few end up in the winning pockets. Balls that drop into the pockets reward the player with extra balls, but catching a ball in the center pocket initiates a reel-sequence, much like a traditional slot-machine. Most games use customized playing fields that match their theme, hence the graphics, reels and slots may look different, but function similarly, and typically uses 3-rows of reels. Matching the 3 reel symbols invokes the Jackpot and the exciting Bonus Rounds. In these rounds, the player goes through multiple jackpot sequences where they try to get the balls into the payout slots for additional winnings. Subsequent rounds payout at a higher rate of winnings. In the end, the player may win buckets of balls numbering in the thousands ! **************************************************************** ABOUT US Pachinko-Pagoda is a direct importer of pachinko and pachislo skill games and their accessories.
