DifferencesEdit

PachinkoEdit

Pachinko are traditional Japanese gambling machines wherein players pour metal balls (resembling ball bearings) at the top. The balls then dribble down and hit metal nails on the way down, the outcome is decided by where the balls end up. As a player, you can somewhat move the nails to affect the outcome. Players must first purchase a prepaid card to buy a tray of these small steel balls, with the average cost being ¥4 per ball. Serious players, or "Pachi-puro", would not buy anything less than a thousand yen's worth.[1]

SANKYO's popular Deji-Pachi (Digital Pachinko) machines have an LCD display in the center showing colorful animations that indicate your jackpot, or "Fever". The noisy animations feature scenes from the Macross Frontier series.

The winnings come out as more metal balls, which you can use to collect some sort of prize. The player then takes the prize to another location nearby to redeem for cash, as gambling for money is technically illegal in the country.

PachislotEdit

Pachinko´s younger cousin is the Pachislot machine. Pachislots are very similar to normal slot machines. While digital Pachinko machines feature a video screen, all Pachislot machines have this feature. Instead of the metal balls used with Pachinko, players use coin shaped tokens with Pachislot.

As players play their three reels, the story unfolds and different events take place on the screen on top of the machine.[2]

Like slot machines, there are three wheels featuring a variety of symbols. Each of the wheels spins at an extremely fast rate and has a button beneath it that stops the wheel manually, no more than 0.19 seconds from the player pressing it. While some may put a win at pachislots down to luck, in reality there is a lot of skill and lightning fast reactions needed to be good at it.
