Pachinko is a Japanese game which incorporates both the element of Pinball and the reels of a slot machine.
The game is played by firing balls from a 'holding dock' into a series of holes which rebound from a series of pins. Each winning hole gives away more balls, bonuses and a unique feature which causes a reel to spin where lucky players can hit great payouts and jackpots!
In the traditional game played at 'Pachinko Parlours', players receive prizes in the form of tickets that can be exchanged for items such as children's toys. Of course, the online virtual version of this game is played at online casinos for real cash prizes! The reel feature plays as any other slot with some great jackpots awarded.
Pachinko is gaining popularity in online casinos where a virtual Pachinko machine that replicates the physics of a real pinball machine can be played. Coins are inserted into the machine just like with an online slot, upon which a number of pinballs are released and loaded into a 'docking area'. The game is played by firing the balls into a series of holes which contain cash prizes, bonuses, more balls and a fantastic reel feature that contains a treasure trove full of bonuses and jackpots.
Firing the balls is often done with pressing and releasing a virtual button which recognises the amount of pressure placed on the firing spring. The fun of this game lies in its hybrid nature, with big rewards for those who like the game of pinball and the reel feature for those who like slots.
