Adrunio Pachinko Counters

The following information is provided to build or develop your own pachinko counter based upon the Arduino MEGA platform.

The custom plastic face plate and wood housing do not have to be used but are available here and from other sources.

This whole page and the idea of the counter comes courtesy of our friend Carl. It was his idea how to make pachinko more interesting by challenging your friends to see who got a better score. The best part is this counter can be applied to almost any type of pachinko machine.
