Pachinko Slots Mini Game Guide

Where to play slots

You can find the pachinko slots in three different areas. Two of these can be found in Kamurocho, one appears to the southwest of Maruhan while the other is to the south of Theater Square. Another facility can be found in Ijincho.

How to play slots

The Pachinko slot is a mini game that involves stopping the wheels until all three symbols match. When the condition is met, the player will receive medals. The player can also trigger the Bonus Game after unlocking certain symbols.

Aim for the upper limit

Each slot machine has a ceiling. There are many vacant spots with a rotation speed that goes close to the ceiling.

Go back to the title screen

When you run out of spots to choose from, save one time and then go back to the title screen. You will be able to have a go once again on those tables after loading the file.

Set to “high setting medal”

Use the high setting medal to earn the “Triumph of the Million Gods.”

Make a save file if you win

Save your progress before using the slot machine and then play some slots. Your next save file will depend on how great the performance goes. If you win, you can go outside and overwrite your save file. Reload your progress if you lose.

How to Suspend

A simple way to suspend play is to use the touch button. However there are also other conditions. One of the two conditions that trigger suspending include the following: the total cycle must be more than the upper limit or having at most 3 medals or 1,000 yen. When the former is reached, the player can opt to use a different slot or play again.

Where to play Pachinko Slots

Pachinko Slot facility is open by default once you start the game. However, with a limited budget you’re better off not playing right away.

After reaching Chapter 5, you have the option to play some rounds of slots. Aim to earn 20,000 to 30,000 yen before heading inside the facility.

Practice at the title screen

If you wish to play the game freely for practice, there is an option where you can choose to play Pachinko Slots from the title screen.

Effects

Exchange medals for prizes

After earning some medals from the slots, you can use these to redeem prizes. Go to the counter and speak to the NPC to view the list of prizes. The rewards range from items that improve human power stats to useful weapons.

List of pachinko slot machines

There are four types of machines to choose from. Each machine comes with its own ceiling.

Slot Objective Ceiling
Fist of the Blue Sky Near 1100 G Low
Million God-The Triumph of the Gods- About 1000 G High
Another God Hardes About 750 G High
About 1000 G High
Roar of the Beast King About 700 G Low

Fist of the Blue Sky

The Fist of the Blue Sky machine has a ceiling of 1200 G.

This machine has a limit of  2400 cards per jackpot. That being said, it does offer that much medals. Unlike other titles, playing Fist of the Blue Sky is more lax since there is no penalty that will appear at random times when avoiding the blue pattern.

Million God-The Triumph of the Gods-

The ceiling is high compared to other slots and can give out a big amount of medals. However, the large payout comes with the price of high risk. If you wish to spend time aiming for a win on this machine, avoid coming empty handed.

Another God Hades

Similar to the previous machine, Hades has a large ceiling and can gives a huge payout. Another God Hades is the slot machine suitable for those who brought a moderate amount of money and medals. Hades is highly recommended for players who are looking to collect medals for the first time.

Roar of the Beast King

Although Roar of the Beast King does not offer much benefits compared to the previous slots, the entry fee is affordable. Roar of the Beast King is the slot of choice for those who are running short on money or medals. The machine has a cap of 2400 cards for each jackpot and is not recommended for players who wish to collect many medals.

  1. Tried this minigame. Would only try if you are going to be doing something else while it plays on auto so as to get the stat boosters. Easier to get plates to sell at casino.
