    Default About video slots like Japanese pachinko

    Do you think there will be demand if flashy video slots like pachinko are released in countries other than Japan?
    Video slots like pachinko are popular in Japan, but they don't seem to be popular in other countries.

    I would think if the software providers make the game good enough and they have an english version I would think it would make sense if they added it to their stable of games, it would not have to do huge numbers I would think but would have one more choice among the many.

    There are a few companies who produce online pachislots already. They're not yet that popular elsewhere, as the online gaming scene is pretty much dominated by European companies (or perhaps I just think that because I am European?). I've seen plenty of new companies popping up on the radar though, so I would expect pachislots to gain some popularity in the coming years. I've written a few articles on them, so I guess some affiliates are thinking the same...

    I think if famous provider will create game on English it will be popular worldwide not only in Japan. And I guess such slots will become more popular soon

    thank you everyone.
    I'm glad to hear all the positive opinions.
    I hope that Japanese pachinko will be widely recognized in the world.
    I need a place to explain complicated rules well.

    I'm actually very surprised this hasn't yet been done by one of the big providers. Crazy time has a pachinko esk element to it. I think the whole thing about pachinko being a skill based game is the big barrier to cross digitally in a way that can be scaled online and still captivate the same Japanese players.

    The fun of the Hawaiian Dream may only be understood by the Japanese.

    Oiran Dream seems to be quite popular among European players. It also brings new ideas for software providers. There is a provider named Shock that develops games for Japanese market ( Swipe GF, Note of Death etc).

    Yes, of course. I don't see why there wouldn't be demand for something like what you've mentioned, and especially more so these days as there's always a need and desire for people (especially among the young) to possess better technology so they can play their games with more interaction.
