For those who grew up in the 1980s, video arcades were all the rage, or a place where people played arcade machines, pinball machines, electro-mechanical games, redemption games, coin-operated billiards or just air hockey. In some countries, like Japan, some of these arcades are legally permitted to have gambling machines such as slot machines or pachinko machines. If you weren’t around during that time, this video should provide a good look at how some of them ran.
