Pachinko and Pachislots: The classic online slots game of Japan
newsonjapan.com -- Jun 27
Classic online slots generally talks about the popular "one-armed bandit", or the popular Las Vegas version of slots machines. But Japan has made its own variation that became popular all over the country after World War II.

This is what they call Pachinko and Pachislots, which have remained in the country for many years because of tight gambling regulations. Thus, it’s not surprising why many people from outside Japan don’t know about this game yet.

But what exactly is Pachinko, to begin with?

What is Pachinko or Pachislots?

Pachinko is a variation of pinball which features a vertical board with certain obstacles. The player loads small balls into the machine, which the player can launch through the board using a lever. The goal is to shoot the ball into specific buckets, so the machine could reward the player with more balls. But the excitement players can get from Pachinko have improved since Pachislots was introduced.

Pachislots have made Pachinko a variation of slot machines in Japan. The ball can fall on specific buckets in the Pachinko machine which triggers the fitted number reels. If the players are lucky enough and get 3 similar numbers, the machine will reward them with more balls. 

What can Pachinko and Pachislots Players do with the Balls?

Japan has tight restrictions on gambling. People cannot play any gambling games with money as a direct reward. Moreover, Pachinko began as an arcade game for kids back in the 1920’s. But what has made it a classic online slots game is the reward players can exchange for the balls.

In a Pachinko parlor, players can exchange balls they collect for ticket points. Subsequently, they can use such tickets to buy treats, products and toys inside, or exchange it for money outside the parlor. And that’s how Pachinko and Pachislots have made their way into casinos and gambling areas, and even to online platforms outside Japan.
