    Default best modified 1970s pachinko ever?

    An engineer/inventor who makes arcade machines modded a pachinko, which I played last week at his central London arcade. His machines have to be seen to be believed! What pachinko is it?

    His machines:

    The pachinko mod:

    I popped in again today, and met the man himself Tim Hunkin! They open late on Thursdays so perhaps that's why. He kindly agreed to have a photo taken with me.

    I mentioned this post and the forum. He imported the pachinko from Japan, which was called Spring Jet prior to its modification.

    As pachinko fans we all, I guess, love complex gaming machines. I highly recommend a visit- great fun :-)
