    Default What (so far) is the best “spinning drop chance” Pachinko game?

    So we have all seen Lotsaballs unfortunate issue fitting one of these new types of amazing game cells in his frame.

    “Spinning drop chance” means those games with the big centerpiece gimmicks where the ball spins and drops (by physics & chance) into the center and if the ball makes it all the way down to the bottom you get a jackpot!

    So my post is, of the titles thus far (judging from, IP & game layout), which looks like the most fun to play?

    Use YouTube videos & photos (personal experience playing if you have it) and post below. These games look amazing to me.

    Please post a video link or photos if you have them of your choice!

    I say go Tenruu Infinity or go home!

    I’ve played Raizinman maybe an hour or two, finally got a fever (with only 1 ball in the spinning dishes center feature &#128578 The gameplay is challenging for sure, can be quite frustrating at times! However it’s definitely very cool to see a few balls go through the spinning parts and quite a nerve racking machine! Very fun to see your lucky ball go all the way to the V hole!😮This one is definitely an acquired taste though. Mine stays on nearly 0 volume due to my beeping frame compatibility issue, but that may not be such a bad thing as it alternates between either a stressful, tense sounding “rock” song or classical music and has old school electronic noises as the two digit digi LEDs spin. Reminds me of Vicky Chance since the gameplay is a bit more challenging than a typical digipachi for sure, yet grows tiresome after playing for very long; and the annoying spinning sounds!

    Now the Tenruu one; I’ve never played it, but I like the looks of that one better, and there’s none of that digipachiness. 🤗 All random chance from physics/game player skill.

    Well what's good for the goose...

    My favorite is this:
    天下一閃 他 後編 or 'Tenkazu Iku Other Parts' (google translate)
    天下一閃 他 後編.jpg
    Suffice to say, that I do not understand the IP at all.
    Anyone know what this is about? Is it based on an anime or other series?

    But both gameplay-wise, sound effect-wise (soundtrack) & overall layout-wise...this looks & sounds the most fun to me.
    I love the sword fighting sounds
    when it hits the spinning 'spikey ball' area

    05a56fbe.jpg
    and the horse riding sounds!


    I will say, I wish the back wall didn't have all of the Japanese lettering (or an IP I recognized) like King Arthur or Golden Axe ...BUT this is pretty cool.

    Not a bad Youtube channel either...if I do say so myself

    Tenryuu Infinity 7000VS definitely hits number one. Massive payout, good sound package, and from the start the game is involving. Each stage is well introduced, contrary to say, Gyoza no Oosho, where the unit remains silent until you hit the actual chacker. I play this one on 1yen wherever possible. Cheapest cost so far is about 150 balls.

    Tenkazu Iku has a great game design and sound package, decent payout, but the entry hole is far too difficult, and leaves me frustrated each time. No point in a great design if you can't enjoy it properly!

    Tokio series are fun but low variance games. It's a struggle to cashout big, but they are often played by us. Usually we race on them; Last to hit V buys the beers!

    Heaven and Hell is OK, no three round nonsense here. Wings are very small and lead to low ball numbers in the bonus as it takes an age to land them.

    Matsuri series are good fun. Video screen is for display only and it's possible to guage the outcome way before the screen does anything. Not the easiest game for 1000 or so coin pay...

    Katsudon suffers the same fate as Tenkazu.

    Pyramid looks fun but is rare. Simple, acceptable payout for game difficulty.

    Dynamite King, great if you hate money. Same for Gyoza no Oosho. These are Digihane though so I will not go into a tirade here. If you quite like having money but can't resist a digihane, go for Shakarina.

    Update: Ole’ beepy aka Raizinman didn’t seem to care for me dissing it on the internet so it hit 77 and I got a fever within 5 mins of playing it tonight. 🙂 I give it 2.5 out of 5 stars though; Ranma 1/2, Thunderdragon Z, and Battle of Vader are all more fun cells in this frame (in that order), except for those few seconds the balls are spinning around!

    Wow, this is a great write up. Any links of the games you mentioned from YouTube? Or photos?

    Obviously the titles we already spoke about are fine, but the other titles that weren’t previously mentioned...they would great to have photos of (etc.).

    Sometimes searching the English title won’t pull a video on YouTube

    I'll look about for links tonight, apologies in advance for a double post....! Bear in mind Youtube clips may well be edited to remove the (sometimes considerable) dead patches.
    Before I sort some links, all machines mentioned are those I've had playing experience.

    OK so this is strange...same exact set-up as my "favorite", but different sound package and background art...same centerpiece & bonus shot system.

    Almost a heavy metal theme!

    Anyone know if this is common?

    OK so after some digging:

    I was unaware that some Pachinkos change their art & sound packages depending on their version #!
    http://daiichi777.jp/pachinko/tenkaissen/spec.html
    Very cool!

    Sort of like pinball machines with limited edition releases or "pro" edition. Except, for the most part pinball games sound and graphics remain the same...just more bells and whistles with the higher end models or maybe extra art...not completely changed art!!

    They ease the gameplay (somehow) on these. For reference, the number is the amount of payout balls. The 1600 has a 1600 ball Jackpot and so on. The 4500 will be harder to hit, and here I imagine they wiggle that start hole entry the slightest bit.

    Wow thanks for the post. I can honestly say, I have never seen most of these machines before! Great post~ I love that some of them look like little toys.

    check out this video. The one you are showing is the 1600 one. More passthrough holes are in the first part of the machine than in the 4600 version.

    I regret buying crazinman. As mentioned earlier, it’s cool when the balls are spinning around. But aside from that I find it very boring. I plan on selling mine.

    Dynamite king is really, really, fun. To me that says a lot considering I don’t fully grasp how to play it. Lots of moving things, very colorful and when it hits its equivalent of reach- it’s just awesome!

    Waiting on Tokio to arrive now.

    Great recommendations in this thread. Thanks!

    Agree with your assessment, Tokio Premium is way more fun to play than Raizinman (besides the 1% of the time you have balls spinning in the center). Especially if you like hanemonos. Better music selection, better light show too! However even Tokio isn’t as fun to me as that Tropical Raised digihane! Although it has no spinning ball drop; besides the spinning disk with holes in the clam.

    Dynamite king does seem pretty cool!

    Dynamite King is an absolute pain in the parlour. Admittedly I keep going back to it as its bells and whistles are excellent when it pays out. Great profit opportunity too, IF you get it to hit. Mostly for me it's frustrating to play when cash is involved....But as a home machine, it'd make a fantastic choice.
