Japanese slot machines are still new in the history of land-based and online slots. These Japanese gaming machine types are also called Pachislo or Pachisuro. Japanese slots are cheaper in comparison to American slots. These gaming machines are also very easy to learn with regard to playing slots.
When Japanese slots and American slots are compared, the differences between the two are:
1. LCD Screen: Japanese slots have LCD screens, plays better music, and more number of reels, wherein a player can have an amazing experience of an enhanced reel play.
2. Skill Stop: Japanese slots are “skill stop” machines. It means that a player will be the one who decides when to stop the reels. Unlike the American slots, which will stop automatically because of the “auto stop” mechanism of the machines.
3. Spin Knob: Instead of the traditional reel handle, Japanese slots use knobs on the machines.
4. Variety of Jackpot Payouts: Players who hit the jackpots in Japanese slots will receive a pre-determined amount of money or coins. Unlike the American slots that once the jackpot is hit, all the coins inside the coin tray, no matter how much the amount, will be given out.
Japanese slot machines are described as descendants of the traditional Japanese game called pachinko. As a new phenomenon in Japan, slots are often found in pachinko parlors and the section for adults in game centers or amusement arcades.
There are three unique characteristics of Japanese slots. These are Stock, Renchan, and tenjo.
The Stock is a collection of bonus round awards that have not been collected because the player failed to hit the bonus symbols on a game. But these collected bonus awards will be available for later collection for a player who hits the bonus round.
The Renchan is an event that will happen when a player who is very lucky enough to get to play a number of bonus rounds in a row and making the possible payouts of about five thousand and even ten thousand coins.
The tenjo or ceiling is the maximum limit of the number of games to be played in between the releasing of each Stock. For example, if a machine’s tenjo or ceiling is 1500 games and there are already 1490 games played since the last Stock was released, there is an assurance that after the next ten games, the bonus in the Stock will be release.
The Stock, Renchan, and tenjo characteristics of Japanese slots are what keep teasing slot players to continue playing the games and keep the machine fed with coins.
The Japanese types of slot machines are bit different from standard gaming machines but they are easy to learn and fun to play with.
