Frequently Asked Questions
Pachinko is Japan’s favorite pastime, and has been around for nearly 100 years. It evolved from the same game as American pinball, the Corinthian game, and is similar to pinball but the play is vertical, like a wall, rather than horizontal, like a table.
Pachinko is a mechanical game played with steel ball bearings. The game is run like an arcade, where the balls are used as both tokens and tickets. Balls are rented from the parlor, and players insert them into the machines for game play. The goal is to acquire more balls by getting balls into certain pockets on the machine, and at the end players can redeem the balls for prizes.
