    Default Any info on this Hokoku

    Hi I do hope I got the right place to ask this in. Was just wanting to know if anyone has any info on this specific model maybe? Quite new to this and all I can tell really about it is it's brand and that it's from 1978 I think.
    Thanks in advanced

    Hello and welcome.

    Very cool machine. Should be in the vintage pachinko section. I'm sure a mod can move it for you. Date is close. I would say 77. What else did ya need to know? Looks very clean.

    Thank you, was more just trying to find anything like a model name or anything similar to that. Family recently got it and I've found out it's a bit difficult to research specific machines it seems lol

    most all vintage machines do not have names.. machines that are from this era and newer machines got names and themes.. older machines do not..

    neat machine unusual one.. people wana hear there machine is rare.. yours is as close to rare as it gets.. but not really rare..

    and of course

    Thank you, and honestly not too concerned about the rarity though that does explain why I can't find a picture of the same model online at least lol

    Most machines just have varied center features and backgrounds. I have the same center feature on my Kyoraku.

    Awesome machine, I love it, and of course, I want one.

    I have a Hokoku, but not the same as yours. The neat features are the payout mechanism and the mechanical 2 stage lights. The one I have was actually used as a skill game, in an arcade or bar, I believe. There were typewritten notes attached to the glass that listed the top scorer--ALIEN--and how many balls he won--1,100 if I recall. Another note said Midway gaming--not sure if they actually owned it at one point.

    Have you played it at all? Does the parachutist do something?
