Japanese pachinko operator comes to Hong Kong market

Hong Kong's stock exchange got a new listing on Monday, the first of its kind. A Japanese operator of pachinko halls, called Dynam.

Pachinko is a mix between pinball machines and one-arm bandits, and the hope is that the stock market listing will prove a winner for investors.

The BBC's Mariko Oi explains why Dynam had chosen to list its shares in Hong Kong rather than Tokyo.
