Uniform Distribution On Pachinko

Authors: Naoki Kitamura, Yuya Kawabata, and Taisuke Izumi

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 100, 9th International Conference on Fun with Algorithms (FUN 2018)

Pachinko is a japanese mechanical gambling game similar to pinball. Recently, Akitaya et al. proposed several mathematical models of Pachinko. A number of pins are spiked in a field. A ball drops from the top-side end of the playfield, and falls down. In the 50-50 model, if the ball hits a pin, it moves to the left or right of the pin with equal probability. An arrangement of pins generates a distribution of the drop probability over all columns. We consider the problem of generating uniform distributions. Akitaya et al. show that (1/2^{{a}})-uniform distribution is possible for {a} in {0,1,2,3,4} and conjectured that it is possible for any positive integer a. In this paper, we show that the conjecture is true by a constructive way.
