Hey, want to know how to make a DIY pachinko machine at home? Well, if yes, you’re at the right place. By the way, do you know what pachinko is?

Umm…it is a raucous, smokey, time-consuming, and hypnotic game of gambling that is extremely popular in Japan. By pressing a knob on the game’s lower right-hand corner, small steel balls that are far smaller than those in a typical pinball machine are fired into a vertically playing field. When a ball enters the ‘start’ hole in the field’s center, it triggers a drum that works similarly to a slot machine’s drum.


To make a pachinko machine at home is not very easy. But it’s not impossible. So, if you’re interested to know how to make it at home, collect these materials and get ready.


  • Sandpaper
  • Woodcutter
  • Driller
  • Small nuts/pins


  • Plywood
  • Pencil
  • Tape
  • Wood Glue
  • Paint
  • Ruler
