    This is my first pachinko machine, Iíve always wanted one, and I saw this one at Value Village for $50!!! I tried finding info online, but all my searching led me here and I was hoping yíall could help me understand more about this beautiful machine. Itís a Sankyo, I think ďStellar 2000 CasinoĒ (or some variation of those words) are the type, maybe?

    Iím also curious if I need some kind of conversion kit to be able to power it, since Iím not in Japan and Iíve read that the power is different.

    Is there a standard size for balls, and where would be the best place to get some, and about how many would I need to just run it for fun?

    Thanks for looking and any info, Iím excited to get it running!!!68929260503__EEAEE600-D5CF-458E-8C57-9DB1E8B1C0FD.jpg

    Itís got a transformer already installedÖ so just plug it in and test it!

    You need 1000 balls ideally; 500 minimum. Pachinko pagoda is a good vendor


    Is a hanemono style gameplay machine, so more skill based vs luck; which is a good thing!

    Hello DrHombre and welcome to the group

    I also have silver etched balls direct from Japan if you need another source. 500 would get you going but 1000-1500 balls would be better with that machine. I charge 6 cents per ball plus shipping. Feel free to message me.

    and ginger snap cookies!

    You scored a great looking machine . All that's left is to give it a good cleaning on the ball pathways for the balls work better on clean ways and your machine will last longer . May I suggest to use some canned air (Dust off is the usual brand) to blow the dust and stuff out of the machine .

    Really cool machine and a great deal. Pictures can be misleading but that looks pretty clean too! Glad you were able to grab it before someone knocked it over at the store and smashed something up.

    As has been said, plug it in and see what happens - but take a close look at the power cord and the wires running in and out of the transformer first to make sure the cord is in good shape, no cracks or splits because you never know!

    I recently rebuilt / refurbished a Fever Queen II in the same Stellar 2000 frame, which disassembles reasonably logically and is all screws. If you want to really get into the weeds cleaning your machine, be sure to take pictures as you go to aid in the reassembly and don't mix up / lose any screws.

    Here's that thread, if you want to see how much grime and ash can be trapped in what looks like a reasonably clean a machine -

    Different cells obviously (the center part that contains the nails, rails, and playfield - as well as the matching PCB on the back of the frame), but sandwiched in the same frame.
