Nevada slot makers Mikohn Gaming and Anchor Gaming will jointly develop a slot machine based on Japan’s highly popular Pachinko game.

The Pachinko element would be part of a conventional slot machine’s bonus system, company officials said.

Pachinko, a vertical pinball style of game, is wildly popular in Japan, where more than 4 million machines generate more than $200 billion a year.
