WOW! You certainly have played a lot of machines. I guess paradise does have a few more benefits.

Most of the machines i have played are older ones. At one time there were five or six pachislo parlors on the island. Most of them didn't last more than a couple of years. As of right now there is only one parlor still in business. Because of the many competing businesses, token prices went from ten tokens per dollar to 800 tokens for $20.00. Sadly the last remaining parlor hasn't gotten new machines in a while and has many broken machines taking up space.

What a nice collection of older machines. For being stuck on an island, you have played many machines. It must have been a fun time being able to play all those machines, of course you had to pay to play them. I don't know if I would like that. Congrats on the collection. I look forward to checking back in and seeing any additions.

Having to pay to play actually makes things a little more challenging and exciting. Even if i own 7 machines, I still go to the parlor to play. Its more of a challenge playing at a parlor because you playing against the parlor and not just recycling tokens in your own machine.

What a difference a slow boat can make.

Outstanding selection and variety.

I love that you added all the machines that are currently in play at the 777. It would be cool to go and play some of the older machines.

. . . it may be three plane trips away. Hilo airport currently doesnt have a direct mainland flight. you would have to stop in Honolulu (Oahu) and take an interisland flight.

Kona airport (on the other side of the island) has flights to the mainland, but they are limited. and its about a 2 hour drive to the hilo side.
