    Default Myrtle beach pachinko world closeout sale

    Y’all should check this out and book your road trip to Myrtle beach; I highly recommend checking out the selection of the sadly closed Pachinko World of Myrtle beach. I selected bunch of good ones; but there’s still plenty more quality machines available at bargain prices!

    Sad to see that this one didn't make it long...anyone know the reason? I assume strict gaming laws... Leo wasn't the owner of this one. Just leased the name I believe. Post has been taken down (it was a long time ago). Anyway save a screenshot of what they had? Or the contact?

    My 2 cents on why it failed:

    1. Subpar location; tucked away hidden in a shopping center a few miles inland of the beach (where all the tourists are)

    2. Not enough US/Western themed machines, Star Wars (with bad clicker and giving errors), Michael Jackson and and old Mask machine were only recognizable themed machines to the unwashed masses. Machines were dirty too.

    3. There were 2 owners; one of them didn’t seem to be a knowledgeable pachinko expert.

    4. They mention they couldn’t find help to work the parlor counter for minimal pay. Myrtle Beach is a tourist town; there’s more money to be made waiting tables, ect as there’s a ton of other presumably more lucrative service industry jobs.

    I have the contact I bought 7 machines from; I’ll PM you. They had a cool Eva, AKB48, several Japanese title “sexy girl” themed machines, a Biohazard and an Ultraman were the notable machines I left behind. The owners seemed to be interested in getting rid of the inventory quick though so not sure if any are left (there was 30 of them when I went)

    I should have taken pics inside the parlor... doh! Checkout the thread I made of the legendary haul from this place! There’s pics of the 7 machines I bought.

    Default Myrtle beach pachinko world closeout sale

    I saw on FB there’s a handful (3) more machines from the parlor leftover in nearby Murrells inlet. Not sure on the titles are besides “Kinnikuman”; but at $70 a pop is cheap for a newish pachinko given current domestic pachinko prices!

    They were going for $100 each back when there was 20+ machines to pick and choose from.

    Those didn’t last long! Someone in the North American Pachinko club scooped em up it appears!

    CL is pretty dead for pachinko sales lately, too many scammers and shoddy condition vintage machines, perhaps a FB marketplace for sale section should be added to the site?

    I think instead of by site it should be "online sale ads in North America" and "online sale ads in Japan" and perhaps "elsewhere"
    WANTED: pre-1950s Japanese machines, スマートボール (Smart Ball), payazzo/kronespill, European vertical games (1890-1970s)
    if you have any of these in North America, let's talk.
