Today, I went to go play Pachinko and Slots with my friends on an impulse (maybe my second time playing ever), and I won 10,000 yen (roughly $100). To celebrate, I’m writing this post about just how to play Pachinko for people that don’t know the rules.
So, my friend Todd is visiting me from America, and after a day packed with billiards, sightseeing, and several other fun activities; him, my host-uncle, and I decided to go to a gambling hall and attempt to win some money.
The first thing you see whenever you enter a Pachinko hall could be the noise, it’s deafening. Whenever you walk in, you’re パチスロ 遠隔 greeted with the *ching ching ching* of a thousand balls falling through pinball-like courses in hundreds of machines. You’ll eventually become accustomed to the sound, even though you don’t get into your game, and will soon be surprised by how quiet it’s outside whenever you leave.
Whenever you sit back at the equipment, there are only 3 areas that you might want to cover attention to.
1: The most truly effective left / right of the machine. (this is where you place in your money, it’s like a vending machine)
2. Underneath half of the machine. (this is where in fact the balls that you get / win emerge and where you’ll need to put them in to be able to play)
3. The turn-wheel. (This is everything you turn to really make the balls enter the equipment, usually located in the bottom right corner)
Even if you don’t speak ANY Japanese, in the event that you remember where these 3 areas are and what they’re for, you can enjoy without a problem.
Pachinko is nearly the same as pinball, so if you know just how to play pinball, you essentially understand how to play. Basically, balls = money, so the idea of the game is to use the balls you have to obtain additional and more balls. Pachinko is nearly the same as pinball, except there are no flippers, and you simply hold down the turn-wheel, and hope that the balls belong to the designated holes, thereby earning you more money. The guidelines of Pachinko are so simple, even a baby could play it, all you have to to accomplish is hold down the turn wheel, and watch for the balls to belong to the holes, there’s no skill / timing / thinking involved. If you still aren’t sure about just how to play Pachinko after looking over this post, you either can’t read English, or are brain-dead.
When you’re done playing, if you’ve accumulated an important quantity of balls, you are able to turn them in at the counter and exchange them for some cold hard cash. However, since gambling is illegal in Japan, you won’t actually get cash for the hard-earned-balls. That which you get for the balls is just a card / cards with lots written on them. These cards haven’t any actual value, HOWEVER, you are able to exchange them (at a table located just outside of the store, it’s called a Kan Kin Jou) for real money. By giving you the amount of money in this manner, the Pachinko circumvents the anti-gambling law of Japan, and is able in which to stay business.
So now that you understand all the rules, you are able to take your knowledge, and safely go to a gambling hall. Hopefully, you’ve found this post helpful, but remember, Pachinko can be hugely addictive, if you are likely to gamble, or an addictive personality, it will be a good plan to keep far away from Pachinko.
