Pachislo slot machines are a reel type slot machine produced in Japan. The name "Pachislo" is a combination of the words, "Pachinko" and "Slot". Pachislo machines are similar to American classic slot machines, once they have been in Japanese casinos for two years or less, they are generally resold in the United States. Because Pachislo machines sell for much less than their American counterparts, they are quite popular. If you've recently purchased a Pachislo machine for your home or business, you may want to change the skill level and other settings before setting the machine up.

  1. 1

    Plug the machine in to the electrical socket.

  2. 2

    Open the main door by inserting the key provided into the keyhole on the front right side of your machine. Twist the key clockwise to open the door, counterclockwise to clear any error messages without opening the door.

  3. 3

    Turn the machine on by flipping the power switch found on the left side, inside the machine.

  4. 4

    Press the credit-collect button on the right side of the outside of the machine to change to either credit or collect mode. A small display near the button will be lit when the machine is in credit mode. In credit mode, tokens are stored in the machine until the payout button is pushed. In collect mode, tokens are dispensed every time a winning combination is hit.

  5. 5

    Turn the machine back off to change the game odds. As it is a reel type slot machine, you cannot change the game. You can, however, change the odds. There is a switch or toggle on the outside, which you must move to the "on" position.

  6. 6

    Turn the machine back on, and you will see a number between 1-6 displayed in the credit meter. 6 denotes the highest odds for payout, 1 the lowest. If there is a display on the inside of the front door on your machine, the number will appear there instead of on the credit meter. Press the reset button on the back of the door to change the number.

  7. 7

    Press the "spin reels" button to set the odds.

  8. 8

    Flip the switch back to the "off" position and shut the door. Your Pachislo machine settings have been successfully changed.

Tips and warnings

  • In Japan, tokens are exchanged for prizes instead of cash. Often, the machines are set to pay out at a higher percentage than they take in. Experiment with your particular machine to determine the particular odds on payout.
  • Know your local gambling laws before setting up a Pachislo machine in your business.
