I Won, I Won!


Did you know there are no casinos in Japan? In fact many forms of gambling are not allowed and though there are discussions to legalize gambling in Japan, nothing has been made certain.
The first time B and I visited Tokyo about 3 years ago, we were both excited at the thought of checking out a fancy casino or two while we were visiting. We felt so silly when we discovered there were actually no casinos in Japan! malu

Instead, there are many Pachinko Parlours and entertainment centres with the latter offering plenty of fun in the form of games especially the famous UFO catcher. And today, I am taking you to this very cool entertainment centre we visited in Akihabara. B and I spent quite some time playing all sorts of games here and trust me; there were plenty to keep us busy! ihikhik


Let me win something!

This is my favourite game, which I call the Perfume Machine! Check out the many different perfumes I stand to WIN! Depending on the prizes and the type of game, it costs 100 yen for 1 to 3 tries and 500 yen will get you 3 to 5 tries. You are supposed to manipulate a joystick that controls the claw, allowing it to move back and forth and sideways. Once you have your claw position set, it will descend and attempt to grip the prizes in the display case. If you're lucky, the claw successfully grips and drops your prize into the hatch for you to happily collect!

My favourite Perfume Machine

It sounds easy but it's really not; there were many frustrated moments when I almost won but the prize fell off the claw at the last minute. Let's not even discuss how much I spent playing these games!

So many perfumes waiting for me to WIN them home!

This one here is another perfume machine and it's easier to play compared to the UFO catcher. Basically I just have to press the stop button at the right time, in hopes of having the perfumes (and not the plush toys) pushed down into the hatch. Check out the short video clip of Mariuca losing! merajuk




In the end, we did WIN a few cool items and B won one miniature perfume for me so it was really a lot of fun! It might not be the bestusaonlinecasinos.org we were hoping to visit but it was still very exciting. The thrill of winning something was what we came for and that much we certainly got! Oh and we were lucky enough to catch the famous Rilakkuma Bear who happened to be around that day. I quickly grabbed him in a bear hug and so did B!
