    Smile Pachislo Buying Advice

    Am looking at buying my first pachislo machine. Looking at some, I liked the Carribbean Queen but it was sold out. Next I was thinking of the star wars newest one or maybe Lord of the rings. Is their a difference in some of the star wars machines and how do you tell it. What would you reccommend?
    I know after buying my pachinko Raiders that I should defintely have a volume control installed on what ever I buy. I had heard their was maybe some problems with the star wars one.
    How many tokens should I buy and what kind? I notice their are two different kinds on ebay and one is alot more expensive than the other.
    Does anyone care to reccommend a vendor as that is where I would want to buy. If you do not want to reccommend it on line send it to me seperately. Thank you all for the input in advance.

    im not to sure about the questions you have on star wars. as i do not have that one. i do have lord of the rings. fun machine and you can get them for a good deal. as far as a good dealer. rita at blue hotaru is one of the best for pachislos. as far as tokens. i keep around a thousand in each machine which is pleanty. there are several different size tokens out there. the token you need to look for is the quarter size token. (cant remember the actual size of them) hope this helps out

    There is only one Star Wars pachislo machine, so the ones you've seen with the large LCD screen are the same unless someone did a custom job which could be easily identified. Haven't heard of any problems with the VCs and you are correct that most need additional VCs installed to bring down the sound to acceptable levels for home use.

    We only have one LOTR pachislo left in stock.

    all the token replies. I like to keep about 1200+ in mine and sometimes still have to open the machine to extract tokens for play when they are feeling very stingy.

    Ok so I am still looking to buy my first pachislo. Do I have anyone that wants to highly reccomend Lord of the rings. Carribean Queen is all sold out, does anyone have Rio Paradise or Harem ace. It looks like to me Lord of the rings is alot different than the other two in that it has two spinning reels??? Comments Please
    Anybody have a great one they would like to reccommend?? Than You Don

    I have Rio Paradise , Harem Ace and Carribean Queen.

    They all look good next to each other because of the new front hard plastic cabinet. Each has a different color.

    Carribean Queen is the most fun of these 3 games.

    If this is going to be your first game and keeping with the Net brand I would think you might see if you can find the game Super Blackjack
    The price is in the same ballpark. This game is a keeper.
    If you buy this machine be sure to get extra tokens.
