Pachinko is one of the few things that my husband is very enthusiastic in trying! You can say that I am too. I’ve always come across a few noisy and crowded noisy parlors during my visits, but never got the guts to walk in to try playing.
I went and ask if anybody would be kind enough to teach me how to play pachinko on twitter on my Blackberry. The first, and only person to response is @BradJPE. Here are what he tweeted to me:
most modern machines require you to land a ball on the center slot and get a match (like slots). If you do, you end up in bonus mode
with an increased chance to get another 当たり or 大当たり. Bonus lasts 100x spins. Mermaid game has better win % but no bonus round. Gl!!
