Further, the rear case 41 has a vertically long cutout portion 53 from the upper end portion, and the rear portion of the light collecting mechanism drive solenoid 51 protrudes from the cutout portion 53. Therefore, the depth of the light source box 38 does not need to be formed with such a thickness that the condensing mechanism drive solenoid 51 is housed inside. Therefore, the space occupied by the light source box 38 in a limited space within the mounting base 15, specifically, a depth space, can be kept low, and an empty space that can be used effectively can be secured. The degree of freedom of design can be increased.

  As shown in FIG. 6, the light emitting substrate 43 includes an upper light emitting substrate (fixed condensing light emitting substrate) 55 housed on the upper side of the light source box 38 and a lower housing housed on the lower side of the light source box 38. It is divided into a side light emitting substrate (light condensing mechanism light emitting substrate) 56. The upper light emitting substrate 55 is attached to the front back side of the front case 40 (specifically, the front back side of the inner case 47), and the plurality of light emitting bodies 42 mounted on the surface of the upper light emitting substrate 55 are attached to the fixed light collector 37. It arrange | positions in the site | part facing a rear-end part. In the present embodiment, a light emitter group 57 composed of a plurality of (four in this embodiment) light emitters 42 is disposed for each position facing one fixed light collector 37, and each light emitter group 57 A single light emitter 42 is also arranged on both the left and right sides and above.

  Further, the lower light emitting substrate 56 is attached to the inner surface (front surface) of the rear case 41, and a plurality of light emitting bodies 42 mounted on the surface of the lower light emitting substrate 56 can be rotated up and down. It arrange | positions in the site | part which can oppose a rear-end part. In the present embodiment, a light emitter group 58 including a plurality of (four in the present embodiment) light emitters 42 is disposed for each position corresponding to one light collecting unit 35 and above each light emitter group 58. A single light emitter 42 is also disposed below. The light emitter group 58 of the lower light emitting substrate 56 includes light emitters 42 having different emission colors. That is, the lower light-emitting substrate 56 has a plurality of light-emitting bodies 42 having different emission colors mounted on a portion that can face the rear end portion of the light collecting portion 35.

  The light emitting source box 38 is circularly guided to a portion of the front surface of the front case 40 where the fixed condensing body 37 is disposed and a portion where the rear end portion of the condensing portion 35 of the condensing mechanism 36 faces. The light holes 60 are opened side by side so that the light-emitting body 42 on the light-emitting substrate 43 faces the front, that is, the fixed light-collecting body 37 and the light-collecting section 35 (see FIGS. 6 and 7A). In addition, a circular light guide wall 61 extends rearward from the edge of each light guide hole 60, and a light guide path 62 is defined by the light guide wall 61 to fix the light from the light emitter 42 to the fixed light collector 37. And it is comprised so that it may guide to the condensing part 35 (refer FIG.7 (b) and (c)). Thus, the light guide path 62 provided between the light emitter 42 and the light collector 35 and between the light emitter 42 and the fixed light collector 37 has the light emitter 42 fixed and the light collector 37. The light from the light emitter 42 can be guided to the fixed light collector 37 and the light collector 35 without being diffused widely inside the light source box 38 even if it is away from the light source 35. Accordingly, it is possible to suppress the disadvantage that the intensity of light projected from the light collecting unit 35 and the fixed light collecting body 37 is weakened. In the present embodiment, a light guide hole 60 ′ and a light guide wall 61 ′ are also provided around the portion facing the fixed light collector 37, and provided around the light emitter group 57 on the upper light emitting substrate 55. In addition, the light from the single light emitter 42 can be projected forward of the light source box 38.

Next, the fixed condensing body 37 and the condensing mechanism 36 attached to the light source box 38 will be described.
The fixed condensing body 37 is for irradiating light from the light emitting body 42 in the light emitting source box 38 in a certain forward direction. The front end is closed with a convex lens (condensing lens) 64 and the rear end is opened. It is formed with the horizontal cylindrical member. The fixed condensing body 37 is fixed by a fixing member (not shown) in a state where the rear end overlaps the light guide hole 60 of the front case 40, and the inside of the fixed condensing body 37 and the light guide path 62 are connected. In communication, the light from the light emitter 42 reaches the convex lens 64 through the light guide path 62 and is projected forward from the convex lens 64. In addition, if the outer peripheral surface is subjected to an opaque process (for example, a process of attaching an opaque cover or applying an opaque paint), the fixed condenser 37 may transmit light from a place other than the convex lens 64. It is preferable because it is not present. Further, the rear end of the fixed condensing body 37 may be closed with a translucent member (for example, a light diffusion lens plate made of transparent resin).

  The condensing mechanism 36 is for moving up and down while irradiating light from the light emitter 42 in the light source box 38 forward, and as shown in FIG. A rotation shaft 66 and a construction body 67 for connecting the light part 35 and a link part 68 for connecting the light collecting mechanism 36 and the light collecting mechanism drive solenoid 51 are provided.

  The condensing unit 35 includes a horizontal cylindrical lens body 70, a light diffusion lens body 71 that closes the rear end of the lens body 70, and a storage body 72 that stores the lens body 70 and the light diffusion lens body 71 therein. It has. The lens body 70 is configured to form a convex main lens (condensing lens) 73 at the front end and open the rear end so as to project light irradiated from the rear to the inside forward. The light diffusing lens body 71 is a thin disk-shaped lens member, and diffuses transmitted light. For example, the light diffusing lens body 71 is made into a polished glass shape by roughening the surface roughness, or a small quadrangular pyramidal protrusion ( A plurality of so-called diamond cuts are applied to the surface. The lens body 70 and the light diffusing lens body 71 are formed of a colorless and transparent member (for example, a colorless and transparent resin) in order to project the color of the light emitting body 42 as it is. You may shape | mold with the member of.

  The storage body 72 is a cylindrical member that is slightly larger than the lens body 70 and the light diffusion lens body 71, and the main lens 73 of the lens body 70 is opened from the front opening and the light diffusion lens body 71 is opened from the rear opening. Each. Further, the light that is molded with an opaque member and passes through the lens body 70 is prevented from being projected from the outer peripheral surface of the light collecting portion 35. Further, a bearing portion 74 into which the rotation shaft 66 is fitted is provided at the upper end of the outer peripheral portion, and a decorative member 75 simulating a substantially inverted U-shaped bracket is attached to the upper half portion in a state along the outer periphery. .

  The light condensing mechanism 36 includes a link portion 68 that extends any one of the plurality of light condensing portions 35 rearward and connects to the light condensing mechanism driving solenoid 51. In the present embodiment, the bearing portions 74 of the two central light collecting portions 35 are extended rearward to form the link arm 76, and the link rod 77 is spanned between the tip portions of the link arms 76 to link the link portion 68. Is configured.

  In order to assemble the light collecting mechanism 36 having such a configuration, first, the light diffusion lens body 71 is attached to the rear end portion of the lens body 70. At this time, the light diffusing lens body 71 is positioned by fitting a notch 78 formed on the edge of the light diffusing lens body 71 to a positioning pin 79 protruding from the rear end edge of the lens body 70. When the light diffusing lens body 71 is attached, the lens body 70 is inserted from the rear end portion of the storage body 72 in a posture in which the main lens 73 is disposed in front and the light diffusing lens body 71 is disposed in the rear. Then, the notch 80 formed on the front side of the outer periphery of the lens body 70 is fitted into the positioning protrusion 81 projecting from the inner peripheral surface of the storage body 72, and the main lens 73 is substantially flush with the front opening of the storage body 72. The positions of the lens body 70 and the storage body 72 are determined. In this manner, the three members of the lens body 70, the light diffusing lens body 71, and the storage body 72 are positioned, and a plurality of the light collecting portions 35 are temporarily assembled. The temporarily assembled condensing unit 35 can keep the distance between the main lens 73 and the light diffusion lens body 71 constant, and can maintain the light irradiation state as designed. Therefore, the decoration effect during the game can be stabilized and the interest of the game can be maintained.

  Next, the temporarily assembled light collecting portions 35 are arranged side by side with the end portions on the main lens 73 side aligned, and the light collecting shafts 35 are fitted into the respective bearing portions 74 to connect the light collecting portions 35. . Further, at the rear end portion of each condensing part 35, a flat plate-like elongated body 67 is fitted into a notch groove 82 formed in the accommodating body 72 of each condensing part 35 and the accommodating body 72 It fixes to the fixing | fixed part 83 which protruded in the right and left both sides with fixing members (not shown), such as a screw. Therefore, each condensing part 35 does not rotate around the rotation axis 66 independently of the other condensing parts 35. Further, since the erection body 67 fixed to each condensing part 35 contacts the rear surface of the light diffusion lens body 71 in the storage body 72, the lens body 70 and the light diffusion lens body 71 fall off from the storage body 72. Can be prevented. In this way, the light collecting mechanism 36 can be assembled without using any adhesive. Therefore, it is not necessary to allow for the adhesive drying time in the production of the light collecting mechanism 36, and the production efficiency can be improved. In addition, since the construction body 67 is formed of a transparent member, the light from the light emitting body 42 is not blocked before reaching the main lens 73.

  Then, in order to assemble the light condensing mechanism 36 to the light source box 38, as shown in FIG. 9, the link arm 76 penetrates the slit 84 of the front case 40 and the rotation shaft 66 is pivotally attached to the pivot attachment portion 49. Thus, the light collecting mechanism 36 is arranged in the light collecting mechanism arrangement space 48. If the light condensing mechanism 36 is disposed, a link rod 77 is attached to the distal end portion of the link arm 76 penetrating the front case 40, and the light emitting substrate 43 is disposed between the front case 40 and the rear case 41 to condense the light. The rear case 41 to which the mechanism drive solenoid 51 is attached is attached to the rear portion of the front case 40. Then, the rear end part of each condensing part 35, that is, the light diffusing lens body 71 is arranged at a position where it can face the light guide path 62 and the light emitter group 57 on the lower light emitting substrate 56. Further, the link rod 77 of the link portion 68 of the light condensing mechanism 36 is connected to the drive rod 52 of the light condensing mechanism driving solenoid 51 via the connection member 85.

  When the light emitting device 23 that connects the light collecting mechanism 36 and the light source box 38 in this way drives the light collecting mechanism drive solenoid 51 and moves the drive rod 52 up and down, the tip of the light collecting mechanism 36 (that is, the main lens 73). ) Can be rotated up and down around the rotation axis 66. And if the light-emitting body 42 is made into a lighting state, the light emitted from the light-emitting body 42 can be moved up and down while irradiating it forward from the main lens 73. Therefore, the light can be moved in the vertical direction according to the gaming state and the display image in the image display area 4. From this, in addition to the decoration effect by the light emission color and the light emission mode (flashing etc.), the decoration effect which changes the direction of light can also be performed and the interest of a game can be heightened.

  Further, since the light emitter 42 is disposed not between the light collecting mechanism 36 but between the front case 40 and the rear case 41, that is, in the light source box 38, the light emitter 42 is rotated from the light collecting mechanism 36 that rotates up and down. There is no need to pull out the 42 wiring. Therefore, the wiring process of the light emitter 42 becomes much easier, and the manufacturing efficiency of the light emitting device 23 can be improved. Further, there is no possibility that the wiring of the light emitter 42 is disconnected by repeatedly rotating the light collecting mechanism 36 up and down, and the maintenance work can be reduced.

  The light from the light emitter 42 is guided to the light diffusing lens body 71 through the light guide path 62. Therefore, even if the light emitter 42 is provided away from the light condensing unit 35, the light from the light emitter 42 is converted into the light diffusion lens body. Up to 71. Therefore, the freedom degree of arrangement | positioning of the condensing mechanism 36 can be increased, and the condensing mechanism 36 can be arrange | positioned in a suitable position according to the game content. Moreover, there is no possibility that the light emitter 42 collides with the light collecting portion 35 that rotates up and down, and the inconvenience that the light emitter 42 is damaged can be prevented.

  Further, the condensing mechanism 36 can diffuse and mix light of a plurality of colors emitted from the lower light emitting substrate 56 by the light diffusion lens body 71. Therefore, the light emitting unit 42 can emit light of a color different from the light emission color of any of the light emitting bodies 42 from the light collecting unit 35 in a state in which color unevenness is unlikely to occur. It can be carried out. Further, if only the light emitters 42 of the same color in the light emitter group 58 are turned on and the light emitters 42 of the other colors are turned off, the light that is not mixed, that is, the light of the color emitted from the light emitter 42 itself is condensed. It is possible to irradiate from 36 light collecting portions 35. Therefore, a combination of light emission of the light emitters 42 can be selected based on the progress of the game, and a more gorgeous game effect can be performed, thereby enhancing the interest of the game.

  When the front case 40 is a light-transmitting member (for example, a transparent resin or a translucent resin), the light-emitting substrate 43 includes the light-emitting body 42 in addition to the portion located behind the light guide path 62. If it is mounted and emits light over the entire lower surface and front surface of the light source box 38, it is preferable because the decorativeness of the center case 5 of the pachinko gaming machine can be further improved.

  Moreover, in the said embodiment, although the light-emitting device 23 was provided in the center case 5, this invention is not limited to this. For example, in addition to the center case 5, a window frame having an opening facing the image display area may be provided in the game area 3, and a light emitting device may be provided above the window frame.

  The above-described embodiments are examples in all respects and should be considered not to be restrictive. The present invention is not limited to the above description, but is defined by the scope of the claims, and includes all modifications within the scope and meaning equivalent to the scope of the claims.

It is a front view of a game board. It is a front view of a center case. It is a disassembled perspective view of a center case.
