    Default Pachinko Pagoda any feedback???

    Has anyone ever ordered anything from them? They look to only sell on Ebay and do not have a website.

    Are the tokens the thin or thick?

    I have had many orders from them over the past several years and believe all of mine are thick. They are from parlors in Japan. Not sure what defines “thin” tokens. I do have some that I received with a machine that had the front and back shaved off making them thinner. These tend to jam up in my machines and I don’t use them any more.

    Yep - they are thicker and do not clog older coin hoppers like the thinner ones that Akimono sends with their machines. I ordered several thousand from Pachinko Pagoda and have been happy with them.

    The bottom three tokens pictured here have had their surfaces on both sides reduced or shaved off. There is still some of the outer raised edge and you can see part of the original design on one. A few thoughts for this being done are a form of cleaning the tokens, removing a certain parlor’s name or image, or to reduce some of the weight for mass shipping of tokens. Those are my three guesses. Anyone else have a theory?

    I had gotten 300-400 of these along with one of my machines from a private party. Later on I found them to jam up in the coin mechanism on a couple of my machines. My other tokens don't cause any trouble. I picked them all out of the thousands they were mixed in with and still have them for some reason but they are shiny!

    I have ordered many tokens and balls from them and they have been great. They have the thick tokens. Samslack showed me the thin ones from Akimono that are being mentioned. They are not worn down, they are basically the same size token, just one is half the thickness of the other. I'm fairly certain almost anyone would want the the thick ones. I believe that is what we consider a "normal" token.

    I've ordered pachinko balls from them and had some special remarks about delivery. (I'm from germany and want to recieve them in the US at a companys adress)

    i had a very good communication with them and the balls are exactly as described. So my experience was very good. I'll continue business with them
