Police often check pachinko machines to make sure that customers are not being cheated. They are also interested in ensuring that shop owners do not cheat on their taxes by under-reporting the amount of money taken in each day.
One way the police do this is to demand that shops do away with machines that accept cash directly. In the early 90s, machines that take a pre-paid card instead of cash became the norm.
Called 'CR' machines, they usually have animated screens instead of physical drums, and are much more of a high-risk high-return proposition than the older type.
A player who hits the jackpot on a CR machine can earn as much as , yen in a single day. On the other hand, 10, yen will disappear in about forty minutes of non-winning play on a typical CR machine.

The player buys small metal balls, puts them in the machine, puts pressure on the way they roll out, and fingers crossed they will fall into the holes that span the vertical surface where the balls come out, this surface being garnished with nails.
If some balls fall into the said holes, pachinko turns into a slot machine and three images appear on the machine.
If the images are all identical, a load of balls will drop down, allowing you to play again. Jan 1, KYODO NEWS. KYODO NEWS - 3 hours ago - All , Japan.
