    Default Arrange ball prices

    I am looking at an arrangeball machine not too far from me. What are ballpark prices with balls, and tokens? Supposedly in working condition.
    Just a range so I can know, though I have zero plans to sell.

    Hi. As with pachinko machines it has to do with condition for the most part. Generally an arrangeball will be more expensive than most pachinkos of the same age. I have paid anywhere from $100-400 depending on the machine and the condition. My experience is that they are hard to find parts for and unless you have a strong electrical knowledge, they can be difficult to troubleshoot and repair if there is an electrical issue.

    Thanks. It's about what I was guessing. Now if only it wasn't a 12 hr round trip, and I had a day to go...

    If you're the only one that's interested then under 500 would be typical. Otherwise, prices can climb quickly if it turns into a bidding war. What you want to do is find out all you can about the machine and what it's supposed to do so you can verify when you get there.
    There are no spare parts for these so getting them fixed means taking them to someone savvy with old school electronics. Over the years I've found a couple of places to fix them but it's never a guarantee. Luckily I just found a place near me that works on this type of stuff.
    Anyway, best advice is to know what it's supposed to do and play a few games to verify.
    the fact that it has balls and tokens is great but that's not a big deal. Those are readily available so don't let the seller claim otherwise.
    post a pic of it and chances are I've seen it and can tell you all the functions.

    arranges ball machines are the best... getting a machine in working condition is huge.. if you can play the game thats even better..

    there are deals out there but usually the seller knows nothing about it.. if you have a chance at a machine that is in working order get it...

    Deciding to buy it was the easy part. A seller unwilling to ship or cooperate is the hard part. I don't even mind driving the distance. It's getting a day away. Anyone near Dallas want to help?

    A very common Satomi with the cover plate missing over the numbers. Most of these work well.

    Not the most high resolution photo, but it looks to be in good condition and the fact it is wall mounted likely means it is working. It would suck to drive six hours and find out it didn't operate. Actually the ride home would suck even more than the drive there.

    that model was the first or second arrangeball I had.
    it pays 1 for columns, 2 for rows, 3 for the center 4.
    it may pay out one coin right away with a ball in one of the pockets above or below the number grid.

    if you want to pay for the packing, have him drop it off at a UPS and let them do the packaging. it'll be done right and UPS is resonsible if damage occurs. i hate packing these things and no longer do it. the last half dozen I've sold I let the shipping company do the packaging.

    I offered that and he said no... I have a commercial UPS account and would gladly pay to get it here.

    that sucks. i`ve never had anyone flat out refuse. usually the problem is convincing sellers that youre not scamming them (craigslist).
