So you put tokens in- Spin and maybe win your tokens back? If you lose you open it up and get your tokens back? Think I will stick to midget porn and Milwaukees best for cheap entertainment...Ho Ho

PS- Good to see you back posting. A few have been wondering where you went.

These are little more than cheap entertainment/fun and noise. I don't gamble and never have.

That was a tribute to Jerr and Pete. I know they would have got a kick out of it. Hell, even Al might have cracked a smile.

I just paid a penny short of $140.00 for a "Twin Surfers" Japanese Pachislo Slot Machine. I'll probably have it later this month. I simply want to have fun with the darned thing. It should be good for a few hoots

In Japan, they can only use them for two years in a gaming parlor. After that, they must be sold overseas. This is why they're so popular in the United States. They''re a "non-gambling" alternative to coin-operated slot-machines,

You seem to have got a good deal. When I quick Googled them trying to learn what they were, most seemed to be over $200.

Have fun and enjoy.

I got a screaming deal. It will cost $13.99 to shave it shipped. Most will cost between $110-$150 to ship. They last a long time and the "skill stop" (button stop) reel gives one an illusion of control.

The man failed to ship the machine within the 72 hour period allotted by Mercari. No Pachislo MAchine for me.
