Akafuji’s YouTube bio hints at the fact that she’s usually gunning for jackpot wins when she hits the reels. She takes up a significant amount of space in the YouTube slot influencer community, and she’s been working tirelessly to create her enormous presence on social media since 2014. 

At the time of writing, Akafuji has posted 2,116+ videos and received a staggering 88.4M views. Her channel also boasts an equally impressive 100k+ subscribers. She enjoys playing a variety of flashy progressives, three-reel slots, old-school slots, and everything else you might imagine. 

In this profile story, we’ll be discussing the kind of content Akafuji normally posts. We’ll also be highlighting her largest-ever jackpot wins and diving deep to explore her rise to YouTube fame. 

Quick Facts About Akafuji 

  • Akafuji posts YouTube videos in English and Japanese, making her one of the only slot influencers to create gambling content in two languages. If you take a look at her bio on YouTube, you’ll notice that she’s posted in Japanese below her English “About” section.
  • Akafuji is living somewhere in Southern California, and she frequents Indian casinos on that strip of land. She enjoys visiting Pechanga Resort & Yaamava Casino, but she also takes a short trip to Las Vegas to play some popular jackpot machines from time to time. 
  • When Akafuji isn’t busy playing slots, creating content, and running her primary YouTube channel, she’s likely dealing with either of her two alternate slots channels. KURISlot is by far the more popular of the two. She has 44k+ subscribers and 1.4k+ videos on deck. 
  • Akafuji doesn’t have any other social media channels aside from her secondary YouTube channels, which more than likely diminishes her popularity. However, she’s not doing too badly for herself: in total, she has 144k+ subscribers and she’s received 125.5M+ views. 
  • On her secondary channel @KURISlot, Akafuji showed her sense of humor after she got rid of all the videos she had posted in July 2023. Still, with 3,500+ videos and counting in total, did she really need to worry? Luckily, YouTube restored all 18 videos to her page. 

Where to Find Akafuji

Channel Highlights 

Most Popular Video: JACKPOT Lucky Day WHITE ICE $1 Slot Machine and Triple Double Star 7 Slot, San Manuel Casino 赤富士スロット

Akafuji’s most popular video was posted on December 28, 2017. Since then, it has received a whopping 1.7 million views. In just over 13 minutes of exciting slot gameplay, she takes viewers on a roller coaster ride. She filmed her adventures at the San Manuel Casino.

She ventured out to play White Ice and Triple Double Star 7, both of which are slot machines with a $1 bet denomination. First up on the list was Triple Double Star 7 – she spent her time betting $3 a spin. She quickly won $90 on her fourth spin. Small wins kept her bankroll afloat. 

Aside from a few $15 wins here and there, she doesn’t come across any noteworthy prizes until she whittles her bankroll down to $124. Finally, her luck changes for the better when she’s able to connect two white 7 symbols and a Triple Stars symbol to win an impressive $225. 

This brought her bankroll up to $346. Unfortunately, her luck didn’t last and she decided to cash out her winnings at $301. Next on the itinerary, she played two machines at the same time. The remaining footage she films is choppy, but we can make out that she won $3,600 on White Ice. 

The final few minutes of this video show the attendant paying out her jackpot win in cold, hard cash before she goes back for a quick brush. Little did she know that she was yet to win $240! This brought her bankroll to $301 before she decided to withdraw her winnings and wrap it up.

Schedule: New Videos

Akafuji posts new videos every single day, and you should check her channel between 10 AM and 4 PM (EST) if you want to be among the first people to watch her latest content. She also posts 4 – 6 times per week on her two slot channels @KURISlot and @AkafujiSlot2ndChannel

She doesn’t have any other socials, so you’ll have to check out the “Community” section of her YouTube profile if she ever decides to post an update. Keep your eyes peeled: you never know. 

Origin Story 

Akafuji keeps her personal life largely under wraps, but she joined YouTube back in 2014 under the alias @KURISlot. Two years later, she decided to create the Akafuji slot channel in hopes of communicating with a wider virtual fanbase of English and Japanese-speaking slot enthusiasts. 

Her oldest video was posted on June 15, 2016. She filmed herself playing Cleopatra at Harrah’s Casino in San Diego, CA at the very moment she won a jackpot prize of $1,439.40. Viewers can watch as golden coins rain on the screen, and 8.3k people watched Akafuji’s introductory video. 

Having had two years’ practice with running her secondary YouTube channel, Akafuji had more or less cracked the code to success. She enjoyed largely the same degree of popularity during her first year of having a channel, and she quickly began averaging 10k – 20 views per upload. 

From 2016 until 2017, she was on the fast track to Internet fame with numerous videos breaking the six-figure views barrier. Finally, her most popular video was published at the tail end of 2017. Akafuji’s popularity arguably peaked throughout 2018 and she’s been on a steady decline since.

However, rather than a crashing plummet, she’s enjoyed a slow glide to the back of the line as numerous slot influencers muddy the waters with their own YouTube channels. Fast-forwarding to 2024, she’s right back where she started, averaging between 10k and 20k views per upload. 

Luckily, she got started off on the right foot. 

Akafuji’s Largest Jackpot Wins, Recorded on YouTube 

Akafuji has been the recipient of countless jackpot handpays, but our experts dug deep to figure out her three biggest wins. Suffice to say, if we were in her shoes, we’d be fainting with shock. If you’re ready for a wild ride (and context as to what happened), buckle up and let’s get started. 

May 7th, 2019: $53,696.60 on Black Diamond (San Manuel Casino) 

Akafuji won her largest-ever jackpot handpay at the San Manuel Casino back in 2019. She films herself playing the three-reel Black Diamond slot machine at the max bet, which equates to $27 a spin. Her session isn’t going particularly well until she connects three Black Diamond symbols. 

This gives her a smashing total of $53,960 in profits. Not bad for a $1 slot machine, am I right? 

December 18th, 2021: $36,000 on Triple Double Diamond (Barona Casino) 

Just a week before Christmas 2021, Akafuji was at the Barona Casino playing the Triple Double Diamond slot machine for $75/spin. She was pleasantly surprised when she managed to land a $36,000 win after connecting a seven, a Double Diamond symbol and a Triple Diamond symbol. 

February 3rd, 2024: $20,044.99 on Gold Shots (Las Vegas, Casino Unknown) 

Last but not least, Akafuji was playing Gold Shots for $27 a spin at an unspecified casino in Las Vegas and she was already sitting on $1,358 in wins. Her luck improved when she connected two rows of BAR & Wild Jackpot symbols, leaving her with the jackpot of $20,044.99.

Community and Giveaways 

Akafuji doesn’t have anything posted in the “Community” section of their YouTube channel, and she’s never mentioned a giveaway (or any kind of event) in her videos. However, with such an enormous fanbase on YouTube alone, she’s primed to host some kind of event down the line.
