Japan's Biggest Gaming Obsession Explained | Pachinko

  • Опубликовано: 20 июл 2018
  • Pachinko is Japan's biggest game. And yet many people overseas have never even heard of it.
    ► WHERE we played: Ebisu Cafe in Takayama! bit.ly/ebistakayama
    Many thanks to Ebisu Cafe for sponsoring this video; we’d long wanted to get into a Pachinko parlor to film, and we had a great time uncovering the games history and letting Natsuki loose on the machines.
    ► Learn more about Pachinko:
    NOTE: Winning is not guaranteed. (Natsuki is genuinely experienced. And a lucky boy).

    I've only ever played pachinko a bit, and some of the larger versions you can find at carnivals. I tend to find I have a decent bit of luck at the game. There's not much substance to this comment, but I'm just throwing in my two cents.
