    Default Advice on pachislo purchase

    I am looking for advice on buying my first pachislo.I have only seen them online so am not too familiar with them.I live close to this area so I could pick this one up(no shipping charges).
    I am looking for help from my knowledgeable friends here to tell me if this is a fair price for this machine.Thanks for the help!!

    I have never played that machine, but in my opinion, its just a basic slot.
    Maybe worth $50-$75 depending on how many tokens it comes with.

    $180 is not a good deal for a basic Hanabi without a bonus reel or video screen... $50 max. For $180 you should be able to find a nice one with a video screen. Hold out and keep checking craigslist and something will pop up sooner or later.

    no pic of the whole machine??? i wonder if the belly glass has been replaced or broken...

    I agree it seem like it could be a bit over priced

    i would say 50 to 75 is a bit low.. for Oregon

    That's a good point as this thought did not immediately strike me when looking at the picture.

    machines must be alot more expensive here in arkansas. most of the machines on craigslist are usually priced in the 250 to 350 dollar range. its the same way with the classified ads in the local papers

    They may be listed that high, but may not sell for that much. Try making a lower offer. You can also watch an ad to see how long the ad has been on CL or if you see it posted multiple times after it expired with no buyers.
