Pachislo Slot Machine VS Vegas Slot Machine

Slot_machine

Let's look at the classic Pachislo slot machine and compare it to the Vegas slot machine in terms of cost, how easy it is to repair, how to access the machines and longevity. 

Cost

A mint condition high end Pachislo slot machine with all the bells and whistles will cost about the same as a low end Vegas Slot. A low end basic Pachislo model will cost about the same as the hopper alone from a Vegas Slot.

Repairs

Vegas machines are more difficult to repair than Pachislo machines, and more costly to repair as well. For example, Vegas machines require a battery. If the machine is not used for a long period of time that battery will need to be replaced. It can cost as much to replace that single battery as you will spend on a low end Pachislo slot machine.

A Pachislos slot machine can sit in storage for years and have no issues… Plug it back in and play. They have no batteries.

Years of Casino Use

By law, a Pachislo slot machine can only be used in a casino for one year, after which time it must be retired.

Vegas machines are played in casinos for as long as they are working.

The end buyer never knows the amount of time a particular machine was in a casino, and casino use is HARD on a slot machine.

Getting in the Machine Without a Key

The most common problem for any slot machine owner is a lost door key.

If you own a Vegas slot you will need to have a good drill, knowledge of how to drill out barrel locks… Or the name of a good locksmith if you lose your door key.

If you lose your door key for a Pachislo there are several way to access the inside of the machine and pop the latches to the door.

Once inside it's just a matter of removing two screws, sliding out the lock and replacing it with a new lock/key for around $20.

Weight

Vegas slots can weigh upwards of 250 pounds. The average Pachislo weighs only 85 pounds.

That means once you do manage to get a Vegas machine into you home and into the room you want it to stay, KEEP IT THERE.

They are very difficult to move, which makes them difficult to take anywhere for repairs, to move from room to room of even from one end of a room to another.

And when it's time to sell the buyer can't just lift it, set it in a car and drive off.

Pachislos are lighter and have built in handles, making them much easier to more to any location and set on any table, cabinet or stand.

Power Cord

Power cords on Vegas machines come from the bottom of the machine.

Power cords on Pachislos come from the back.

To use a Vegas slot like Slot lv you will need a special stand that can hold the weight of the machine and has holes in the bottom and back to run the cord. Pachislos are just set down, plugged and played.

The Element of Skill

Vegas machines are all about luck.

The amount of skill to win – 0. Pachislos require the reels to be stopped manually in any order to try to win bonuses. The odds can be set from 1-6 to make it easier or more difficult to win.
