SEGA Sammy: Pachinko Optimism, The Pachinko business is rebounding with the loosening of regulations and the introduction of smart machines, which are seeing an uptake in parlours, driving growth.



Quote
Pachinko was a bit of a dying market due to demographic factors and also expensive underlying regulations that force frequent upgrades and replacement of these machines at a minimum every two years, but it was compounded in 2016 by laws around gambling addiction, that were enacted into law not because of the Pachinko industry but because of the recent legalisation of casinos - Pachinko got caught in the crossfire. The industry has been shrinking since re-regulation till now by about 5% per year driven by parlour closures. Payouts from the machines were reduced and so was excitement, and advertising curbs also limited growth. But rules have loosened recently, specifically allowing more latitude for Pachinko advertising but also around Pachinko machine features, and analysts in the sector typically see the regulatory cycles playing out over a decade before turning again. This is going to be good for smaller Pachinko operators that have been under a lot of pressure from both higher utility costs and the inability to run profitably with all the regulation, who have otherwise been leaving the market in droves over the last decade. The end of the pandemic has also helped. Although, the market is still generally on a downtrend, especially on general inflation.

There are more trends to be aware of. There are now Smart Pachislot and Smart Pachinko machines that are easier to manage because they don't shoot out medals or coins associated with their slot machine-like jackpots. These are really expensive machines, and only really make sense for high profile parlours to buy. The good thing is Sega Sammy is highly exposed to these sorts of machines and high quality customers, and ordering for these units has wholly beaten expectations and puts them ahead of less sophisticated competitors. This is also why Pachislot grew but Pachinko not as much - Pachislot is younger and the smart machines drive more of the mix there, while Pachinko is still waiting for the smart products to grow in the mix. Utilisation rates are also growing faster on Pachislot compared to Pachinko, driving upgrades. Sega Sammy, as well as competitor Universal Entertainment (OTCPK:UETMF), have also both been benefiting from the periodic need of parlours to upgrade machines to comply with gambling standards, now getting lots of orders for the 6.5th generation Pachislot machines, and also orders for Smart Pachinko machines too although smartification hasn't ...

Driving Slam Circuit In SEGA's Apex Rebels (2024 Arcade Exclusive)

PROTOTYPE software, may change for the final.
Here's the 3rd track that was available from SEGA's latest racing game, Apex Rebels. Developed by 3MindWave.
The game has some Daytona USA vibes to it, while also giving nods to some of their other racers of the 90s.
The 4th track was not available yet so perhaps those who visit EAG in January will get a chance to race that on

E3 Is Shutting Down for Good







Quote
It’s game over for the Electronic Entertainment Expo, better known as E3.
The Entertainment Software Association, the video-game trade group that ran the convention, announced Tuesday that E3, first launched in 1995, is winding down.
“After more than two decades of hosting an event that has served as a central showcase for the U.S. and global video game industry, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has decided to bring E3 to a close,” the trade group said in a statement. “ESA remains focused on advocating for ESA member companies and the industry workforce who fuel positive cultural and economic impact every day.”
Even before the coronavirus pandemic, E3 was losing steam. Geoff Keighley, founder of the Game Awards (who said he had attended every E3 since the first one), in 2020 launched Summer Game Fest. Before E3 2020 was canceled, Keighley said he was not participating in the expo because he believes in-person events don’t serve gaming fans, developers or publishers as well as ...
