    Default Parlor Chairs and PowerVolt 115v Transformers

    Does anyone have interest in these Parlor Chairs? I was going to order 25 for myself and I can throw more in the order if anyone is interested. These work great w/ Pachinko chair covers.

    Same question applies for PowerVolt 115v/24v 5amp and 8amp fused Power Transformers. These are really high quality transformers for folks in the US. They've been references several times here- but you can't find them presently. Reason being, there isn't a ton of demand and they're made in volume by request in only now. I'm placing an order shortly.

    I'm planning to order a few extra of each at present, but wanted to gauge if anyone else needs these.

    Not that I am currently looking to buy anything more but would you have any prices that you would like to share?

    Just curious, are you planning on opening a pachinko arcade? major inventory of machines, now a bunch of chairs. If yes, make sure you check state laws, and don't dare give cash as winnings

    We would absolutely love to have a parlor, however- there's a couple problems with it.

    1. There's not enough interest in Pachinko to warrant it. It *must* be paired with 1-2 other areas that generate revenue to have any shot of being successful. Having both text and speech in another language is one hell of a barrier to overcome aside from legal concerns. Also, places like Red Dragon in Vegas charge 5.00 an hr or free with a drink- I've been to all their locations 4 times since October. At no point was there ever anyone in the room aside from myself (majority of my time was spent fixing things as my OCD was running rampant).
    2. Correct on cash as winnings. When you dig deeper into the argument of "it's just like any other skill-based ticket game", that isn't true. Even those games are random. Due to Pachinko's increased winning odds after reaching a fever for a period of time, it removes crucial element of randomness required for compliance. Then having a solution to prove it's payout appropriately, etc. It's just a major pain.

    ModernPachinko.com has a lot of stuff, but no chairs and given it's a special setup to correctly fit chair covers- seems like something we should carry. The downside is we'd have to order hundreds of them to be able to sell them at a price folks are willing pay. We've put that on hold and scrapped the idea of getting transformers made. One of our vendors has these Kiran donut transformers that are 10amp, great enclosure and they don't get hot after hours. We're stocking up on a ton of those and will use them as the standard over time.

    To sum up, no public parlor but we'll certainly have events at the warehouse once we're fully moved and its setup. For those in the Michigan area, if you want to come check out what we've got- you'll be more than welcome to do so shortly.

    There’s one chain I know of that’s a spin-off of strip mall casinos called Red Dragon. There’s 5 all within a few min of the Vegas strip. Each location has about 20 games. There’s also a few more if you’re willing to drive an hour out.

    If you go to Dottys.com, select Las Vegas and filter for Red Dragon, it will give you all the addresses. You’ll want to do this as searching in a maps app for Red Dragon doesn’t return most locations.
