Pachislot has its own mode in Yakuza: Like a Dragon. and various popular machines like Million God, Another Code Hades, Pachislot Souten no Ken Ponyou, Pachislot Moujuuou, and more. Of these mentioned, Million God and Moujuuou are part of the Day 1 update.

You can set the height of the holes and other settings at specific points, and they won’t change even when you exit the store. These are likely the only pachislot simulators available on the PlayStation 4 at the moment.
