    A more modern form of pachinko, Pachi-Slot combines a pachinko board with slot reels. Instead of automatically being rewarded for getting a ball in the correct hole, doing so will instead start the reels spinning. If the reels line up then fever mode will start, and every ball that falls in the hole will award additional balls. This is the most common form for modern pachinko video games. Modern pachinko and pachi-slot machines have moving parts, speakers, lights, and video screens on the board.
