    Default First Pachinko a little advice

    I am looking at getting a first pachinko machine and these currently are in my price range.
    Hyper Passion
    Antonio Inoki
    Tenka Getter
    Charlie Chaplin
    All come with 500 balls, door key, and user instructions. I would appreciate any advice. I jumped into buying and a pachislo (thunder vii) and it seems to work out alright, but i would like a little more guidance on this one.

    Hi first of all welcome to Pachi Talk,
    As with all things in life its all down to personal choice.
    So the only advice that i can give is go with what you fancy or hold out a bit and get what you want, But be warned as with all pachinkos your first will never be your last.
    Once you are hooked thats it
    Lucky for you youre in the right place for any help and advice you will ever need,
    I have never had a problem that hasent been solved by the great folks on Pachi Talk.
    Hope you have fun with what ever you decide to get

    welcome to the site. derek is correct. it all comes down to what appeals to you the most. if up to me i would look at the charlie chaplin. pachinkos are kinda like potato chips, you cant have just one.

    your best bet is to check youtube for gameplay, then get what you like best

    I checkout youtube already but didn't see these particular ones. these are going for around 160 shipped which is relatively cheap for what i have seen so far.

    WELCOME!!

    I haven't played any of those, so my only advise is to get them all!!

    I'm not sure if many members own those, so if you end up getting one make sure to post about it for the next person that comes along!!

    You might just have to go with your gut with picking your first...If it turns out you're a pachinko person, I sure you'll enjoy any one you get, because pachinko rocks!!

    Sorry I couldn't be more help!!

    Never owned or played any of those on the list, so can't say which would be best for you

    However, it sounds like a great price / deal and I'm sure whichever you chose would be great fun

    WELCOME!!

    I, too, have been looking at those machines on eBay, as they are really decently priced. I have heard good things about Hyper Passion and am very curious about Antonio Inoki myself.

    Don't forget to check your local craigslist.org location - great machines come up for cheap quite often (well, they do out here in California).

    And make sure you have lots of room in your house/apartment. Pachis reproduce like bunny rabbits. You start with one and next thing you know, you're thinking about how many you can fit in the front room if you get rid of the couch...

    I checked craigs list but i live in a very rural area of virginia so I am pretty much out of luck on any item like this. ebay is pretty much my only option.

    thanks for all the feedback i am leaning more toward the hyperpassion myself just for the looks.

    I have a Robocop which is the same make / model year as the charlie chaplin and the game play is average at best.

    Hyper Passion may be a good game (the brand usually makes good games) - but suggest you don't get it just for the looks. The play of that type of machine is very different than the video screen models. It's more about the tease, light show and music vs. a theme. You should get at least one of each type of machine.
