Visitors play at Dynam's pachinko parlour in Fuefuki, west of Tokyo June 19, 2014. Japan's once-booming pachinko industry, grappling with a greying customer base and the threat of new competition from casinos, is adopting a softer touch and smoke-free zones to lure a new generation of players, particularly women. Pachinko, a modified version of pinball, is a fading national obsession, with about 12,000 parlours nation-wide and one in thirteen people playing the game. But that figure is declining as the population shrinks and younger people prefer games on their mobile phones. Picture taken June 19, 2014.

A Dynam employee pushes a pachinko machine during its installation at a pachinko parlour in Fukaya, north of Tokyo July 16, 2014. Japan's once-booming pachinko industry, grappling with a greying customer base and the threat of new competition from casinos, is adopting a softer touch and smoke-free zones to lure a new generation of players, particularly women. Pachinko, a modified version of pinball, is a fading national obsession, with about 12,000 parlours nation-wide and one in thirteen people playing the game. But that figure is declining as the population shrinks and younger people prefer games on their mobile phones. Picture taken July 16, 2014. REUTERS/Issei Kato (JAPAN - Tags: SOCIETY BUSINESS)

Visitors play Pachinko, a Japanese form of legal gambling, at Dynam Japan Holdings Co.'s Pachinko parlour in Koga, north of Tokyo April 7, 2014. Moves towards legalizing casinos in Japan have reignited a debate over the legal status of pachinko, with a potential new tax mooted for a $200 billion gaming industry that has existed for decades on the fringes of the law.

Japan's ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) lawmaker Seiko Noda, one of the LDP lawmakers involved in both pushing for casinos and the pachinko debate, speaks during an interview with Reuters at the parliament in Tokyo April 11, 2014. Moves towards legalising casinos in Japan have reignited a debate over the legal status of pachinko, a $200 billion gaming industry that has existed for decades on the fringes of the law. Noda said there is no consensus yet on how best to regulate pachinko. Among the 4,000 or so firms involved in the industry, the smaller, financially weaker hall operators are more worried about change, and particularly about any new tax scheme, Noda said.
