Pachinko Card Reader Emulator System
Playing pachinko in the home environment loses some of the excitement of playing in a Japanese pachinko parlour. You have an unlimited supply of balls to play with, and the player can just sit back and watch the machine, with little sense of involvement. The Card Reader Emulator system was designed to allow pachinko to be played at home with the same level of excitement as playing in a Japanese pachinko parlour.
The Card Reader Emulator adds a new dimension to the home pachinko experience by allowing you to have control over, and keep track of, the number of balls that you are playing with. This brings back the competitive aspect of playing against the machine.
