Expanding Markets - Pachinko and Pachislot

To date, PureDepth®’s primary focus in Japan has been the Pachinko and Pachislot market, which is estimated to be well over $200 billion. It is also estimated that as much as 10% of the Japanese population visits Pachinko and Pachislot parlors weekly.

  • According to a report by the Japan Productivity Center for Socio-Economic Development, Pachinko gaming accounts for the largest entertainment expenditure in Japan.
  • According to the National Police Agency of Japan, this market is one of the largest gaming markets in the world with unit volume approaching 4,000,000 machines per year.

Because the Pachinko/Pachislot market is heavily regulated with a rigorous approval process that limits the time that a game can be in the market, machine turnover is high, with as many as four million new units per year entering the market. That means game developers are constantly on the lookout for new ideas and innovations.

PureDepth® initially stepped into this market through an agreement with Sanyo and its customers Abilit and Daiichi, both of which have launched 3-D games. MLD® is 3-D technology of choice in the Pachinko and Pachislot markets.
