Combination of Pinball and Slot Machines

Pachinko is a combination of pinball and slot machines in Japan. Though it is said to be for recreational use, it is more understood as a gambling machine. Customers purchase tubs of pachinko balls and dump them into the pachinko machines and hope that the balls enter the slots and holes, which then allow them to exchange their rewards for prizes. Prizes range from snacks to collectibles and toys. Because it is illegal in Japan to gamble for cash, the pachinko parlors do not offer cash in the parlor but usually do exchange prizes into cash at a window next to or near the pachinko parlor.
