It's a little dusty, and I'm going to need to replace some parts soon, but my prize possession can still spit out tokens with the best of them. I think it's a house record. I wonder what the yakuza exchange rate for 1901 tokens is? Bet it's an assload. I could totally buy a hotel on Boardwalk with this change!
Japanese slot machine jackpots aren't exactly the same as western slot jackpots: while Western slots simply give you the damned money, pachislos are legally required to only give out 15 tokens per spin, maximum. As such, instead of having a mighty 15-token jackpot, the machines worked around the law by putting the player in a bonus round where they recieve 15 tokens at almost every spin. On the Hokuto machine, Raoh and Kenshiro fight during the bonus round, and if Ken wins, you get to play another bonus round. This repeats until the machine decides you've had enough money. Here, you can see I got to play the bonus round.... fourteen times in a row. It takes forever. I must have been listening to Ai wo Torimodose (which only starts playing once you've made loads of money to begin with) for twenty minutes. Not that I've never done that before!
