What is Pachinko?

Pachinko is a popular form of entertainment and gambling in Japan, deeply ingrained in the country’s culture and history. Originating in the early 20th century as a mechanical game resembling a vertical pinball machine, pachinko has evolved into a multimillion-dollar industry with dedicated parlors found throughout Japan.

Players purchase small metal balls, which they then launch into a pachinko machine filled with pegs, pins, and pockets. The objective is to manipulate the balls in a way that they fall into certain pockets, triggering a cascade of events that may lead to more balls, tokens, or prizes.
