Description

本発明は、パチンコ遊技機等の遊技機の盤面に設けられる可変入賞装置に関する。   The present invention relates to a variable winning device provided on a board surface of a gaming machine such as a pachinko gaming machine.

パチンコ遊技機には、開閉する一対の羽根部材を有する可変入賞装置(いわゆるチューリップ式可変入賞装置)が遊技盤に設けられている。可変入賞装置は、左右の一対の羽根部材が反対方向に回動することで、羽根部材が開閉する。この可変入賞装置は、羽根部材が開いて遊技球が入賞し易い状態と、羽根部材が閉じて遊技球が入賞しにくい状態とを切り替えられる。   In the pachinko gaming machine, a variable prize device (a so-called tulip type variable prize device) having a pair of blade members that open and close is provided on the game board. In the variable winning device, the pair of left and right blade members rotate in opposite directions, so that the blade members open and close. This variable winning device can be switched between a state in which the wing member is open and the game ball is easy to win, and a state in which the wing member is closed and the game ball is difficult to win.

可変入賞装置には、羽根部材の開閉をソレノイド等の電導アクチュエータを駆動源として行う電動式可変入賞装置や、遊技球が該可変入賞装置に入賞することで機械的に羽根部材を開閉させる機械式可変入賞装置等がある。電動式可変入賞装置は入賞率を変化させる等、遊技機の遊技に変化を持たせることができる。また可変入賞装置の前面側に、多様な装飾を施した前飾り板を設けて意匠的な効果を付与している。   The variable winning device includes an electric variable winning device that opens and closes the blade member using a conductive actuator such as a solenoid as a driving source, and a mechanical type that mechanically opens and closes the blade member when a game ball wins the variable winning device. There are variable winning devices. The electric variable winning device can change the game of the gaming machine, such as changing the winning rate. In addition, a front decoration board with various decorations is provided on the front side of the variable winning device to give a design effect.

ところで、このような遊技機における可変入賞装置は、羽根部材の回動機構として、可変入賞装置の遊技盤側となる本体部にL字状の窓を設け、羽根部材が開放した場合に連結片がL字状の窓の上部内側と当接し、羽根部材の回動範囲が窓内部に規制されるように構成されている(例えば特許文献1参照)。   By the way, the variable prize apparatus in such a gaming machine is provided with an L-shaped window in the main body portion on the game board side of the variable prize apparatus as a rotating mechanism of the blade member, and the connecting piece when the blade member is opened. Is in contact with the upper inner side of the L-shaped window, and the rotation range of the blade member is restricted inside the window (see, for example, Patent Document 1).

特開2001-198307号公報(図3、図4)JP 2001-198307 (FIGS. 3 and 4)

しかし上記特許文献1に記載された可変入賞装置では、羽根部材の回動規制は羽根部材に設けられた連結片がL字状の窓に当接して行うといった、回動範囲の規制を一点のみで行っていたことから、遊技球が羽根部材に衝突した際に、衝突による力が連結片の部分に全部加わり、連結片を損傷してしまう虞があった。そこで、遊技球が羽根部材に衝突した際の力を分散する為に、羽根部材の回動範囲の規制を二点で行う可変入賞装置が提案されている。   However, in the variable winning device described in Patent Document 1, the rotation of the blade member is restricted only by one point of restriction of the rotation range, such as the connection piece provided on the blade member is in contact with the L-shaped window. Therefore, when the game ball collides with the blade member, there is a possibility that the force due to the collision is applied to the part of the connecting piece and the connecting piece is damaged. Therefore, in order to disperse the force when the game ball collides with the blade member, a variable winning device that restricts the rotation range of the blade member at two points has been proposed.

図8〜図11に上記従来の回動範囲の規制を二点で行う可変入賞装置を示す。この可変入賞装置101は、図8(a)、(b)に示すように、前カバー部102と本体部103との間に、一対の羽根部材104a、104bを備える入賞口105が設けられている。前カバー部102には、前面側に装飾効果を有する前飾り板106が設けられている。   FIGS. 8 to 11 show a variable prize winning device that controls the conventional rotation range at two points. As shown in FIGS. 8 (a) and 8 (b), this variable winning device 101 is provided with a winning opening 105 including a pair of blade members 104a and 104b between the front cover portion 102 and the main body portion 103. Yes. The front cover portion 102 is provided with a front decorative plate 106 having a decorative effect on the front side.

図9に示すように、前カバー部102には前飾り板106の後側に突出する軸部107a、107bが設けられている。また羽根部材104a、104bは、前記軸部に対応した軸穴部108a、108bが設けられ、前面側に規制片109a、109bが設けられ、後面側に連結片110a、110bが設けられている。前飾り板106の後側には、羽根部材104a、104bの規制片109a、109bが当接し、羽根部材104a、104bの回動範囲を規制するための規制溝111a、111bが設けられている。   As shown in FIG. 9, the front cover portion 102 is provided with shaft portions 107 a and 107 b that protrude to the rear side of the front decorative plate 106. Further, the blade members 104a and 104b are provided with shaft hole portions 108a and 108b corresponding to the shaft portion, the regulation pieces 109a and 109b are provided on the front surface side, and the connection pieces 110a and 110b are provided on the rear surface side. On the rear side of the front decoration plate 106, restriction pieces 109a and 109b of the blade members 104a and 104b are in contact with each other, and restriction grooves 111a and 111b for restricting the rotation range of the blade members 104a and 104b are provided.

図10(a)に示すように、羽根部材104a、104bが閉鎖した状態では、規制片109a、109bが規制溝111a、111bの下端に当接し、羽根部材104a、104bが開放した状態では、図10(b)に示すように、規制片109a、109bが規制溝111a、111bの上端に当接し、回動範囲は前飾り板106の裏面に設けた上記規制溝111a、111bの範囲内に規制される。   As shown in FIG. 10A, when the blade members 104a and 104b are closed, the restriction pieces 109a and 109b abut against the lower ends of the restriction grooves 111a and 111b, and when the blade members 104a and 104b are opened, 10 (b), the restricting pieces 109a and 109b abut on the upper ends of the restricting grooves 111a and 111b, and the rotation range is restricted within the range of the restricting grooves 111a and 111b provided on the back surface of the front decorative plate 106. Is done.

また図11(a)、(b)に示すように、可変入賞装置の本体部103に開口部114を設け、羽根部材104a、104bの連結片110a、110bが開口部114の左右端の開口縁116a、116bと当接するように形成されている。羽根部材104a、104bが閉鎖状態では、図11(a)に示すように連結片110a、110bが開口部114の下開口縁115a、115bに当接している。羽根部材104a、104bが開放する際は、連結片110a、110bが開口部114の開口縁116a、116bと当接しながら上方に回動する。そして図11(b)に示すように、連結片110a、110bが、開口部114の上開口縁114a、114bに当接して回動が停止する。すなわち、羽根部材104a、104bは、それぞれ前面側の規制片109a、109bと後面側の連結片110a、110bとの二点で回動範囲が規制されている。   Further, as shown in FIGS. 11A and 11B, the opening 114 is provided in the main body 103 of the variable winning device, and the connecting pieces 110a and 110b of the blade members 104a and 104b are the opening edges at the left and right ends of the opening 114. 116a and 116b are formed in contact with each other. When the blade members 104a and 104b are closed, the connecting pieces 110a and 110b are in contact with the lower opening edges 115a and 115b of the opening 114 as shown in FIG. When the blade members 104a and 104b are opened, the connecting pieces 110a and 110b rotate upward while coming into contact with the opening edges 116a and 116b of the opening 114. Then, as shown in FIG. 11B, the connecting pieces 110a and 110b come into contact with the upper opening edges 114a and 114b of the opening 114 to stop the rotation. That is, the rotation ranges of the blade members 104a and 104b are restricted at two points, that is, the regulation pieces 109a and 109b on the front side and the connection pieces 110a and 110b on the rear side.

上記従来の可変入賞装置では、前飾り板の意匠性を向上させるために、深い彫りを入れることが要望されている。つまり、可変入賞装置のデザインに幅を持たせることが要求されている。一方で、前記した要望とは別に可変入賞装置の前後の厚みを小さくしてコンパクトにすること等が要望されている場合がある。   In the conventional variable prize-winning device, in order to improve the design of the front decorative board, it is desired to make a deep carving. In other words, it is required to give a wide range to the design of the variable winning device. On the other hand, in addition to the above-described request, there are cases where it is desired to reduce the thickness before and after the variable winning device to make it compact.

そこで上記可変入賞装置において、デザインに幅を持たせるために、前飾り板の厚みを後側に厚くすることが考えられる。そのために可変入賞装置の他の部品の厚みを薄く形成しようとすると、図8(b)及び図9に示すように、前飾り板106の後方に突出するように、規制溝111a、111bが設けられており、それらの厚みを薄く形成するのは、規制片が嵌合し当接することから、一定の厚みが必要でありこれ以上薄くするのは困難である。また羽根部材104a、104bの厚みを薄く形成することも考えられるが、この厚みは遊技球が通過できる大きさが必要であるから、遊技球の直径よりも薄くすることはできない。このように前飾り板の後側では、厚み方向のスペースを稼ぐことができなかった。   Therefore, in the above variable winning device, it is conceivable to increase the thickness of the front decoration plate to the rear side in order to give a width to the design. Therefore, when trying to reduce the thickness of the other components of the variable prize-winning device, as shown in FIGS. 8B and 9, the regulation grooves 111a and 111b are provided so as to protrude rearward of the front decoration plate 106. In order to reduce the thickness, the regulation pieces are fitted and contacted with each other, so that a certain thickness is required and it is difficult to reduce the thickness further. Although it is conceivable that the thickness of the blade members 104a and 104b is reduced, the thickness needs to be large enough to allow the game ball to pass through, and thus cannot be made thinner than the diameter of the game ball. Thus, on the rear side of the front decorative board, it was not possible to earn space in the thickness direction.

そこで前飾り板106の厚みを前方に厚く形成することが考えられるが、前方には遊技機のガラス板があるために、ガラス板と干渉しない範囲となると、これ以上厚みを厚くすることはできない。言い換えると、遊技機における遊技盤とガラス板との距離は一定であるから、単に前飾り板を前方に厚く形成することは実際には不可能である。そのため、上記可変入賞装置では、デザインに幅を持たせることができなかった。つまり、前飾り板の裏面に規制溝を設け、羽根部材に規制片を設けてしまうと、遊技盤表面と前飾り板裏面との距離を縮めることができないので、前飾り板を厚くすることができなかった。   Therefore, it is conceivable to increase the thickness of the front decoration plate 106 to the front, but since there is a glass plate of the gaming machine in the front, the thickness cannot be increased any more if it is in a range that does not interfere with the glass plate. . In other words, since the distance between the game board and the glass plate in the gaming machine is constant, it is actually impossible to simply form the front decoration plate thickly forward. For this reason, the variable prize-winning device cannot provide a wide design. In other words, if a regulation groove is provided on the back of the front panel and a regulation piece is provided on the wing member, the distance between the game board surface and the back of the front panel cannot be reduced, so the front panel can be thickened. could not.

また、可変入賞装置を小型化したいという要望に対しても、前記同様、遊技盤表面と前飾り板裏面との距離を縮めることができないため小型化が困難である。   Further, in the same way as described above, it is difficult to reduce the size of the variable winning device because the distance between the surface of the game board and the back of the front decoration board cannot be reduced.

このように上記従来の可変入賞装置では、遊技盤表面から前飾り板裏面までの距離を縮めることができないといった共通する欠点が内在していたため、上記した、デザインに幅を持たせることができないという問題点や、可変入賞装置を前後方向に小型化できないという問題点があった。   As described above, the conventional variable prize winning device has a common defect that the distance from the surface of the game board to the back of the front decoration board cannot be shortened, and thus the design cannot be widened. There was a problem and a problem that the variable winning device could not be reduced in size in the front-rear direction.

本発明は上記従来技術の欠点に鑑みなされたものであり、パチンコ遊技機等の遊技機の可変入賞装置において、デザインに幅を持たせるために前飾り板を厚く形成することが可能である可変入賞装置を提供すること、若しくは可変入賞装置を小型化することを目的とするものである。   The present invention has been made in view of the above-mentioned drawbacks of the prior art, and in a variable prize winning device for a gaming machine such as a pachinko gaming machine, it is possible to make the front decoration board thick so as to give a width to the design. The object is to provide a winning device or to reduce the size of the variable winning device.

本発明は、
(1)遊技機の遊技盤に取り付けられる本体部と、前記本体部の前面に設けられ、前飾り板を有する前カバー部と、前記本体部と前記前飾り板との間に、回動自在に取り付けられる羽根部材とを有し、前記羽根部材を回動させることで遊技球が入賞し易い状態と入賞しにくい状態とに切り替え、遊技球の入賞し易さを変化させることが可能な可変入賞装置において、前記前飾り板の裏面に規制片を設け、前記羽根部材の前面に前記規制片が係合する規制溝を設け、前記羽根部材の規制溝に前飾り板の前記規制片が当接することで前記羽根部材の回動範囲が規制されるように形成されていることを特徴とする遊技機の可変入賞装置、
(2)前記本体部の裏面側に前記羽根部材を回動させる駆動源と該駆動源からの駆動力を伝達する駆動伝達手段が設けられ、前記羽根部材の裏面側に裏面方向に突出する連結片が設けられ、前記本体部に開口部が設けられ、該開口部を通して前記駆動伝達手段と前記連結片が連結し、前記開口部の開口縁に前記連結片が当接することで前記羽根部材の回動範囲が規制されるように形成されている上記(1)記載の遊技機の可変入賞装置、
を要旨とする。
The present invention
(1) A main body attached to a game board of a gaming machine, a front cover provided on the front surface of the main body and having a front decoration plate, and freely rotatable between the main body and the front decoration board A wing member that is attached to the game, and by rotating the wing member, the game ball can be switched between a state where it is easy to win and a state where it is difficult to win, and the ease of winning of the game ball can be changed. In the winning device, a regulation piece is provided on the back surface of the front decoration plate, a regulation groove for engaging the regulation piece is provided on the front surface of the blade member, and the regulation piece of the front decoration plate is applied to the regulation groove of the blade member. A variable winning device for a gaming machine, characterized in that the rotation range of the blade member is regulated by contact,
(2) A drive source for rotating the blade member and a drive transmission means for transmitting a driving force from the drive source are provided on the back surface side of the main body, and a connection projecting in the back surface direction on the back surface side of the blade member. A piece is provided, an opening is provided in the main body, the drive transmission means and the connecting piece are connected through the opening, and the connecting piece abuts on an opening edge of the opening, thereby the blade member. The variable winning device for a gaming machine according to the above (1), which is formed so that a rotation range is restricted,
Is the gist.

本発明可変入賞装置は、前記前飾り板の裏面に規制片を設け、前記羽根部材の前面に前記規制片が係合する規制溝を設け、前記羽根部材の規制溝に前飾り板の前記規制片が当接することで前記羽根部材の回動範囲が規制されるように構成したことにより、遊技盤表面と前飾り板裏面との距離を該規制溝が設けられていたスペース分だけ小さくすることができるので、可変入賞装置の大きさを変えることなく前飾り板を厚く形成することができる。   The variable prize-winning device of the present invention is provided with a restriction piece on the back surface of the front decoration plate, a restriction groove for engaging the restriction piece on the front surface of the blade member, and the restriction of the front decoration plate in the restriction groove of the blade member. Since the rotation range of the blade member is regulated by the contact of the piece, the distance between the game board surface and the back of the front decoration board is reduced by the space provided with the regulation groove. Therefore, the front decoration board can be formed thick without changing the size of the variable winning device.

本発明可変入賞装置は、前飾り板の厚みを厚く形成できるため、前飾り板の前面に溝状の模様を形成する場合には、その溝の深さ(彫り)を深く形成することが可能であり、前飾り板の意匠性を向上させることができる。つまり、前飾り板前面側に施されるデザインに幅を持たせることができる。   Since the variable prize device of the present invention can be formed with a thick front decoration board, when a groove-like pattern is formed on the front face of the front decoration board, it is possible to deepen the groove depth (carving). Thus, the design of the front decorative board can be improved. That is, it is possible to give a width to the design applied to the front side of the front decorative board.

また、本発明可変入賞装置は、前飾り板の裏面に規制溝が設けられていないから、遊技盤表面と前飾り板裏面との距離が、該規制溝を設けていたスペース分だけ小さくすることができるため、そのスペース分だけ小型化することもできる。   In addition, since the variable winning device of the present invention does not have a restriction groove on the back surface of the front decoration board, the distance between the surface of the game board and the back surface of the front decoration board should be reduced by the space provided with the restriction groove. Therefore, it is possible to reduce the size by the space.

上記可変入賞装置において、駆動源と該駆動源からの駆動力を伝達する駆動伝達手段が設けられ、前記羽根部材の裏面側に裏面方向に突出する連結片が設けられ、前記本体部に開口部が設けられ、該開口部を通して前記駆動伝達手段と前記連結片が連結し、前記開口部の開口縁に前記連結片が当接することで前記羽根部材の回動範囲が規制されるように形成した場合には、羽根部材の開放、閉鎖の回動動作の規制が、羽根部材の規制溝と連結片の二点により行われる為に、一点のみで回動動作を規制する場合に比較して、羽根部材に対して遊技球が衝突した衝撃により、規制片や連結片が損傷することを良好に防止することができる。   In the variable winning device, a driving source and a driving transmission means for transmitting a driving force from the driving source are provided, a connecting piece projecting in the back surface direction is provided on the back surface side of the blade member, and an opening is formed in the main body portion. The drive transmission means and the connection piece are connected through the opening, and the rotation range of the blade member is regulated by the contact of the connection piece to the opening edge of the opening. In this case, since the restriction of the rotation operation of the opening and closing of the blade member is performed by the two points of the restriction groove and the connecting piece of the blade member, compared to the case of restricting the rotation operation at only one point, It is possible to satisfactorily prevent the restricting piece and the connecting piece from being damaged by the impact of the game ball colliding against the blade member.

図3〜図7は本発明可変入賞装置の実施例を示すもので、図3〜図5は従来例の装置を示す図8〜図10に対応している。図3(a)、(b)に示すように可変入賞装置1は、パチンコ遊技機30の遊技盤33に取り付けられる本体部3と、前記本体部3の前面に設けられる前カバー部2と、前記本体部3と前記前カバー部2との間に回動自在に取り付けられた左右一対の羽根部材4a、4bとから構成される。   3 to 7 show an embodiment of the variable prize winning apparatus of the present invention, and FIGS. 3 to 5 correspond to FIGS. 8 to 10 showing a conventional apparatus. As shown in FIGS. 3 (a) and 3 (b), the variable prize apparatus 1 includes a main body portion 3 attached to a gaming board 33 of a pachinko gaming machine 30, a front cover portion 2 provided on the front surface of the main body portion 3, It is composed of a pair of left and right blade members 4a and 4b that are rotatably mounted between the main body 3 and the front cover 2.

図3(b)及び図4に示すように、前カバー部2は、その前面側に、装飾効果を有する前飾り板6が設けられ、その後面側に、後方に突出する軸部7a、7bが設けられ、該軸部7a、7bに対して、それぞれ左右方向の内側の上側の位置に、後方に突出する規制片9a、9bが設けられている。また羽根部材4a、4bには、前記前飾り板6の裏面側と対向する面となる前側に、前記規制片9a、9bが嵌合する規制溝11a、11bが設けられており、該規制溝11a、11bが設けられている前側とは反対面の後側に、後方に突出する連結片10a、10bが設けられている。   As shown in FIGS. 3B and 4, the front cover portion 2 is provided with a front decoration plate 6 having a decorative effect on the front surface side, and shaft portions 7 a and 7 b projecting rearward on the rear surface side. There are provided restricting pieces 9a and 9b that protrude rearward at positions on the inner side in the left-right direction with respect to the shaft portions 7a and 7b, respectively. In addition, the blade members 4a and 4b are provided with restriction grooves 11a and 11b into which the restriction pieces 9a and 9b are fitted on the front side which is the surface opposite to the back side of the front decorative plate 6, and the restriction grooves Connecting pieces 10a and 10b protruding rearward are provided on the rear side opposite to the front side on which 11a and 11b are provided.

羽根部材4a、4bは、軸穴部8a、8bが前カバー部2の軸部7a、7bに、それぞれ貫通するように挿入し、軸部7a、7bの先端が本体部3の嵌合穴13a、13b(図7参照)に挿通されて、羽根部材4a、4bが軸部7a、7bを中心に回動するように取付けられる。   The blade members 4a and 4b are inserted so that the shaft hole portions 8a and 8b penetrate the shaft portions 7a and 7b of the front cover portion 2, respectively, and the tips of the shaft portions 7a and 7b are fitted into the fitting holes 13a of the main body portion 3. , 13b (see FIG. 7), and the blade members 4a and 4b are attached so as to rotate around the shaft portions 7a and 7b.

可変入賞装置1は、前記羽根部材4a、4bを回動させることで、遊技球が入賞し易い状態(開放状態)と、入賞しにくい状態(閉鎖状態)とが切り替えられ、遊技球の入賞し易さが変化するように形成されている。可変入賞装置1において、遊技球が入賞しにくい状態とは、図5(a)に示すように、一対の羽根部材4a、4bが起立して先端が上方に位置し、対向面15a、15bが上下方向となって、遊技球が可変入賞装置の直上からしか入賞できない状態である。この閉鎖状態における羽根部材4a、4bの対向面15a、15bの間隔は、遊技球がほぼ1個通過可能な幅に形成されている。   The variable winning device 1 rotates the blade members 4a and 4b to switch between a state where the game ball is easy to win (open state) and a state where it is difficult to win (closed state). It is formed so that the ease changes. In the variable winning device 1, a state where it is difficult for a game ball to win is as shown in FIG. 5 (a), where a pair of blade members 4a and 4b are erected and their tips are positioned upward, and the opposing surfaces 15a and 15b are In the vertical direction, the game ball can be won only from directly above the variable winning device. The interval between the opposing surfaces 15a and 15b of the blade members 4a and 4b in the closed state is formed to a width that allows almost one game ball to pass therethrough.

また可変入賞装置1において遊技球が入賞し易い状態とは、図5(b)に示すように、一対の羽根部材4a、4bが軸部7a、7bを軸として先端が左右外側方向に傾くように回動し、前記の羽根部材4a、4bの対向面15a、15bが水平に近づいて、一対の羽根部材4a、4bの先端の間隔が広がった状態である。遊技盤面の遊技領域を上から下に落下する遊技球は、羽根部材4a、4bの間隔が拡大したことで入賞口5に導かれ易くなり、入賞口5が拡大した状態となる。   Further, in the variable winning device 1, the state where the game ball is easy to win is as shown in FIG. 5B, in which the pair of blade members 4a and 4b are inclined to the left and right outer sides about the shaft portions 7a and 7b. And the opposed surfaces 15a and 15b of the blade members 4a and 4b approach the horizontal direction, and the distance between the tips of the pair of blade members 4a and 4b is widened. A game ball that falls from the top to the bottom on the game area of the game board surface is easily guided to the winning opening 5 due to the increased interval between the blade members 4a and 4b, and the winning opening 5 is in an expanded state.

実施例の可変入賞装置1は、本体部3の裏面側に羽根部材を回動させる駆動源と、該駆動源からの駆動力を伝達する駆動伝達手段が設けられており、羽根部材4a、4bの裏面側に設けられた連結片10a、10bに、前記駆動伝達手段が連結されていて、駆動源により羽根部材4a、4bが回動するように形成されている。以下、実施例の駆動源及び駆動伝達手段について説明する。   The variable winning device 1 of the embodiment is provided with a drive source for rotating the blade member on the back side of the main body 3 and a drive transmission means for transmitting a driving force from the drive source, and the blade members 4a, 4b. The drive transmission means is connected to connecting pieces 10a and 10b provided on the back side of the blades, and the blade members 4a and 4b are formed to rotate by a driving source. Hereinafter, the drive source and the drive transmission means of the embodiment will be described.

図6は可変入賞装置の分解斜視図である。実施例の可変入賞装置1は、図3(b)及び図6に示すように、駆動源がソレノイド51とプランジャー52とコイルばね53とから構成されている。プランジャー52は前端に係合片59が設けられている。また前記駆動源と羽根部材を連結する駆動伝達手段としてアーム部58が用いられる。図6に示すように、アーム部58には、前記プランジャー52の係合片59が係合する係合溝54及び、本体部3の軸穴55a、55bに保持されて軸支可能に形成されたアーム軸56a、56bが左右に設けられ、該アーム軸よりも前方側に、羽根部材後側の連結片10a、10bを保持するための連結凹部57a、57bが左右一対に設けられている。   FIG. 6 is an exploded perspective view of the variable winning device. As shown in FIGS. 3B and 6, the variable winning device 1 according to the embodiment includes a solenoid 51, a plunger 52, and a coil spring 53 as a drive source. The plunger 52 is provided with an engagement piece 59 at the front end. An arm portion 58 is used as drive transmission means for connecting the drive source and the blade member. As shown in FIG. 6, the arm portion 58 is formed so as to be pivotally supported by being held in the engagement groove 54 with which the engagement piece 59 of the plunger 52 is engaged and the shaft holes 55 a and 55 b of the main body portion 3. The arm shafts 56a and 56b are provided on the left and right, and a pair of connecting recesses 57a and 57b for holding the connecting pieces 10a and 10b on the rear side of the blade member are provided on the front side of the arm shaft. .

上記駆動源、駆動伝達手段、前カバー部及び羽根部材等の各部品は、本体部3に取り付けられて一体化され可変入賞装置1を構成している。以下、これらの部品の組み立てについて説明する。ソレノイド51のコアの内部にプランジャー52をコイルばね53を介して挿入する。プランジャー52はコイルばね53によって常に前方に付勢されている。プランジャー52の係合片59がアーム部58の係合溝54に係合する。アーム部58は、アーム軸56a、56bが、本体部3の軸穴55a、55bに内側から嵌め込み、前記軸穴を中心に回動するように取付られる。ソレノイド51は、ケース60aに収納されていて、該ケース60aの前方左右の取り付け部60bに設けたねじ穴を用いて本体部3の取付部62にビス止めされている。   Each component such as the drive source, the drive transmission means, the front cover portion, and the blade member is attached to and integrated with the main body portion 3 to constitute the variable winning device 1. Hereinafter, the assembly of these components will be described. A plunger 52 is inserted into the core of the solenoid 51 via a coil spring 53. The plunger 52 is always biased forward by a coil spring 53. The engagement piece 59 of the plunger 52 engages with the engagement groove 54 of the arm portion 58. The arm portion 58 is attached such that the arm shafts 56a and 56b are fitted into the shaft holes 55a and 55b of the main body portion 3 from the inside and turn around the shaft hole. The solenoid 51 is housed in the case 60a, and is screwed to the mounting portion 62 of the main body 3 using screw holes provided in the left and right mounting portions 60b of the case 60a.

図7は、本体部3の正面図である。図7に示すように、本体部3には前記前カバー部2の軸部7a、7bの先端を保持する嵌合穴13a、13bが設けられている。さらに本体部3には、前記嵌合穴13a、13bのそれぞれ左右方向内側に、本体部3を前後に貫通する開口部14が設けられている。開口部14の形状は、少なくとも左右の周縁が、羽根部材の連結片10a、10bに当接し回動範囲が規制される開口縁12a、12bとして形成されている。該開口縁12a、12bは、左右方向中央に凸となる円弧状の湾曲部21と、該湾曲部21に連なり上下の壁として形成された上隅部22、下隅部23とから構成される。上隅部22及び下隅部23は、連結片10a、10bの回動端となる位置に設けられている。   FIG. 7 is a front view of the main body 3. As shown in FIG. 7, the body 3 is provided with fitting holes 13 a and 13 b that hold the ends of the shafts 7 a and 7 b of the front cover 2. Further, the main body 3 is provided with an opening 14 penetrating the main body 3 in the front-rear direction inside the fitting holes 13a and 13b in the left-right direction. The shape of the opening part 14 is formed as opening edges 12a and 12b whose left and right peripheral edges are in contact with the connecting pieces 10a and 10b of the blade member and whose rotation range is restricted. The opening edges 12a and 12b are composed of an arcuate curved portion 21 that protrudes in the center in the left-right direction, and an upper corner portion 22 and a lower corner portion 23 that are connected to the curved portion 21 and formed as upper and lower walls. The upper corner portion 22 and the lower corner portion 23 are provided at positions that serve as rotational ends of the connecting pieces 10a and 10b.

前カバー部2の軸部7a、7bに羽根部材4a、4bの軸穴部8a、8bを挿入し、軸部7a、7bの先端を嵌合穴13a、13bに嵌め込む際、羽根部材4a、4bの連結片10a、10bは、本体部3の開口部14の開口縁12a、12bに当接し、該連結片10a、10bの後端は本体部裏面側に飛び出すように配置する。この本体部3の裏面側に突出する連結片10a、10bの後端は、駆動伝達手段として設けたアーム部58の連結凹部57a、57b内に保持される。   When the shaft hole portions 8a and 8b of the blade members 4a and 4b are inserted into the shaft portions 7a and 7b of the front cover portion 2 and the tips of the shaft portions 7a and 7b are fitted into the fitting holes 13a and 13b, the blade member 4a and The connecting pieces 10a and 10b of 4b abut on the opening edges 12a and 12b of the opening 14 of the main body 3, and the rear ends of the connecting pieces 10a and 10b are arranged so as to protrude to the back side of the main body. The rear ends of the connecting pieces 10a and 10b protruding to the back side of the main body 3 are held in connecting recesses 57a and 57b of an arm portion 58 provided as drive transmission means.

以下、駆動源と駆動伝達手段を用いて羽根部材4a、4bを開閉させる機構を説明する。まずソレノイド51に通電するとコイルが励磁し、プランジャー52が後側に吸引される。プランジャー52の係合片59はアーム部58の係合溝54に係合している。アーム部58において係合溝59はアーム軸56の上方に設けられているから、プランジャー52が後退するとアーム軸56を中心に回動し、前方の連結凹部57a、57bが上方に上がる。連結凹部57a、57bには、羽根部材の連結片10a、10bが嵌合しているから、連結凹部57a、57bが上方に上がると、連結片10a、10bも同様に上方に上がる。   Hereinafter, a mechanism for opening and closing the blade members 4a and 4b using the drive source and the drive transmission means will be described. First, when the solenoid 51 is energized, the coil is excited and the plunger 52 is attracted to the rear side. The engagement piece 59 of the plunger 52 is engaged with the engagement groove 54 of the arm portion 58. Since the engagement groove 59 is provided above the arm shaft 56 in the arm portion 58, when the plunger 52 is retracted, it rotates about the arm shaft 56, and the front connecting recesses 57a and 57b rise upward. Since the connecting pieces 10a and 10b of the blade member are fitted in the connecting concave portions 57a and 57b, when the connecting concave portions 57a and 57b are raised upward, the connecting pieces 10a and 10b are similarly raised upward.

連結片10a、10bが上に上がると、羽根部材4a、4bは軸穴部8a、8bを中心に回動する。羽根部材4a、4bの回動は、先端が可変入賞装置1の外側方向に倒れるように互いに反対方向に傾くように回動する。羽根部材4a、4bの対向面は、垂直方向から水平方向に向かい開放状態となる〔図3(a)、図5(b)参照〕。   When the connecting pieces 10a and 10b are moved upward, the blade members 4a and 4b rotate around the shaft hole portions 8a and 8b. The blade members 4a and 4b are rotated so that the tips thereof are inclined in opposite directions so that the tip end falls in the outward direction of the variable winning device 1. The facing surfaces of the blade members 4a and 4b are opened from the vertical direction to the horizontal direction (see FIGS. 3A and 5B).

可変入賞装置1が開放状態となる時の羽根部材4a、4bの回動範囲の規制は、図5(b)に示すように、前飾り板6の裏面に設けた規制片9a、9bが羽根部材4a、4bに設けた規制溝11a、11bの下側に当接すると、そこで羽根部材4a、4bの動きは停止する。このとき羽根部材4a、4bの裏面側の連結片10a、10bは、本体部3の開口部14の開口縁12a、12bの上隅部22、22に当接し、羽根部材4a、4bの回動範囲が規制される。   As shown in FIG. 5 (b), the restriction range 9 a, 9 b provided on the back surface of the front decoration plate 6 is used to restrict the rotation range of the blade members 4 a, 4 b when the variable winning device 1 is in the open state. If it contacts the lower side of the regulation grooves 11a and 11b provided in the members 4a and 4b, the movement of the blade members 4a and 4b stops there. At this time, the connecting pieces 10a and 10b on the back side of the blade members 4a and 4b abut on the upper corner portions 22 and 22 of the opening edges 12a and 12b of the opening portion 14 of the main body 3, and the blade members 4a and 4b rotate. Range is regulated.

可変入賞装置1を開放状態から閉鎖状態とするには、羽根部材が開放した状態でソレノイド51の通電を遮断する。ソレノイド51の励磁が解除されると、プランジャー52を後退させている吸引力がなくなる。プランジャー52は、コイルばね53によって前方に付勢されているために、ソレノイド51の外側に押し出され前方に移動する。プランジャー52の係合片59がアーム部58の係合溝54を前方に押し出すと、アーム部58はアーム軸56を中心に回動し先端の連結凹部57が下方に下がる。アーム部58の連結凹部57には、羽根部材の連結片10a、10bが嵌合しているから、連結凹部57が下がると連結片10a、10bも下に下がる。連結片10a、10bが下に下がると、羽根部材4a、4bは軸穴部8a、8bを中心に回動する。羽根部材4a、4bの回動は、いずれも先端が起立する方向に回動し、対向面が垂直方向に向かい閉鎖状態となる〔図5(a)参照〕。   In order to change the variable winning device 1 from the open state to the closed state, the energization of the solenoid 51 is interrupted with the blade member open. When the excitation of the solenoid 51 is released, the suction force that moves the plunger 52 backward disappears. Since the plunger 52 is biased forward by the coil spring 53, the plunger 52 is pushed out of the solenoid 51 and moves forward. When the engaging piece 59 of the plunger 52 pushes the engaging groove 54 of the arm portion 58 forward, the arm portion 58 rotates about the arm shaft 56 and the connecting concave portion 57 at the tip lowers downward. Since the connecting pieces 10a and 10b of the blade member are fitted in the connecting recess 57 of the arm portion 58, when the connecting recess 57 is lowered, the connecting pieces 10a and 10b are also lowered. When the connecting pieces 10a and 10b are lowered, the blade members 4a and 4b rotate around the shaft hole portions 8a and 8b. Each of the blade members 4a and 4b is rotated in the direction in which the tip stands up, and the facing surface is closed in the vertical direction (see FIG. 5A).

可変入賞装置1が閉鎖状態となる時の羽根部材4a、4bの回動範囲の規制は、図5(a)に示すように、前飾り板6の裏側に設けた規制片9a、9bが羽根部材4a、4bに設けた規制溝11a、11bの上側に当接すると、そこで羽根部材4a、4bの動きは停止する。このとき羽根部材4a、4bの裏面側の連結片10a、10bは、本体部3の開口部14の開口縁12a、12bの下隅部23、23に当接し、羽根部材4a、4bの回動範囲が規制される。   As shown in FIG. 5 (a), the restriction ranges 9a and 9b provided on the back side of the front decorative board 6 are used to regulate the rotation range of the blade members 4a and 4b when the variable winning device 1 is closed. If it contacts the upper side of the regulation grooves 11a and 11b provided in the members 4a and 4b, the movement of the blade members 4a and 4b stops there. At this time, the connecting pieces 10a and 10b on the back surface side of the blade members 4a and 4b are in contact with the lower corner portions 23 and 23 of the opening edges 12a and 12b of the opening portion 14 of the main body 3, and the rotation range of the blade members 4a and 4b. Is regulated.

可変入賞装置1において、羽根部材4a、4bの閉鎖状態から開放状態までの間の回動範囲は所定範囲となるように規制されている。可変入賞装置1は、前飾り板6の裏面に設けられている規制片9a、9bが、前記羽根部材4a、4bの前面に設けられた規制溝11a、11bに当接することで、前記羽根部材4a、4bの回動範囲が規制される。   In the variable winning device 1, the rotation range between the closed state and the open state of the blade members 4a and 4b is regulated to be a predetermined range. The variable winning device 1 is configured such that the restricting pieces 9a and 9b provided on the back surface of the front decoration plate 6 abut on the restricting grooves 11a and 11b provided on the front surfaces of the blade members 4a and 4b. The rotation range of 4a and 4b is regulated.

閉鎖状態では、図5(a)に示すように、規制片9a、9bは羽根部材4a、4bの規制溝11a、11bの上側に当接している。このとき羽根部材4a、4bの裏面側の連結片10a、10bは、本体部3の開口部14の開口縁12a、12bの下隅部に当接している。また開放状態では、図5(b)に示すように、規制片9a、9bが羽根部材4a、4bの規制溝11a、11bの下側に当接している。このとき羽根部材4a、4bの裏面側の連結片10a、10bは、本体部3の開口部14の開口縁12a、12bの上隅部22、22に当接している。つまり、規制溝の上側から下側および開口縁の上隅部から下隅部までが羽根部材の回動範囲になっている。   In the closed state, as shown in FIG. 5A, the restricting pieces 9a and 9b are in contact with the upper sides of the restricting grooves 11a and 11b of the blade members 4a and 4b. At this time, the connecting pieces 10 a and 10 b on the back surface side of the blade members 4 a and 4 b are in contact with the lower corners of the opening edges 12 a and 12 b of the opening 14 of the main body 3. In the open state, as shown in FIG. 5B, the restriction pieces 9a and 9b are in contact with the lower sides of the restriction grooves 11a and 11b of the blade members 4a and 4b. At this time, the connecting pieces 10 a and 10 b on the back surface side of the blade members 4 a and 4 b are in contact with the upper corner portions 22 and 22 of the opening edges 12 a and 12 b of the opening 14 of the main body 3. That is, the rotation range of the blade member is from the upper side to the lower side of the restriction groove and from the upper corner portion to the lower corner portion of the opening edge.

なお上記「規制溝11a、11bの下側」とは、羽根部材4a、4bが閉じて先端が上を向いた状態で、下側となる部分を言う。同様に「規制溝11a、11bの上側」と言う場合、羽根部材4a、4bが閉じて先端が上を向いた状態で、上側となる部分を意味する。   The “lower side of the regulation grooves 11a and 11b” refers to a lower part in a state where the blade members 4a and 4b are closed and the tip faces upward. Similarly, “the upper side of the regulation grooves 11a and 11b” means a portion on the upper side in a state in which the blade members 4a and 4b are closed and the tips are directed upward.

羽根部材4a、4bの連結片10a、10bは、開口部14の当接部12a、12bに当接し、羽根部材4a、4bが上隅部22及び下隅部23との間を湾曲部21に沿って回動する。このように羽根部材4a、4bは、それぞれ前側の規制溝11a、11bと後側の連結片10a、10bとの前後の二点で回動範囲が規制される。このように羽根部材4a、4bの回動範囲が前後の二点で規制されるから、羽根部材4a、4bの対向面15a、15bに衝突した際の衝撃が前後に分配され、連結片10a、10bや規制片9a、9b等に加わる衝撃が緩和される。   The connecting pieces 10a and 10b of the blade members 4a and 4b are in contact with the contact portions 12a and 12b of the opening 14, and the blade members 4a and 4b are along the curved portion 21 between the upper corner portion 22 and the lower corner portion 23. Rotate. As described above, the rotation ranges of the blade members 4a and 4b are restricted at two points before and after the front-side regulating grooves 11a and 11b and the rear-side connecting pieces 10a and 10b. As described above, the rotational range of the blade members 4a and 4b is regulated at two points, the front and rear, so that the impact when colliding with the opposing surfaces 15a and 15b of the blade members 4a and 4b is distributed back and forth, and the connecting piece 10a, The impact applied to 10b, the regulation pieces 9a, 9b, etc. is alleviated.

羽根部材4a、4bは、遊技者が遊技機前面側から可変入賞装置1を見た場合に、閉鎖状態から開放状態までのすべての位置において、羽根部材4a、4b前側に設けた規制溝11a、11bが前飾り板6に隠れて正面の遊技者から見えない位置に形成するのが好ましい。規制溝11a、11bが遊技者から見えないことで、見栄えが良くなる。   When the player views the variable prize device 1 from the front side of the gaming machine, the blade members 4a and 4b are provided with restriction grooves 11a provided on the front side of the blade members 4a and 4b at all positions from the closed state to the open state. It is preferable to form 11b in a position hidden behind the front decoration board 6 and invisible to the player in front. Since the restriction grooves 11a and 11b are not visible to the player, the appearance is improved.

本実施例の可変入賞装置1では、図3(a)及び図6に示すように、前カバー部2の羽根部材4a、4bの下方に、透明プラスチック製のレンズ61及びカバー62等の光学部品が取付られている。これらの光学部品は、本体部3後側に取り付けられたLED基板63のLED64から出た光を透過或いは屈折させて、可変入賞装置に装飾効果を付与するものである。可変入賞装置1には、このようなLED基板や光学部品からなる装飾部材を取り付けることができる。   In the variable winning device 1 of this embodiment, as shown in FIGS. 3A and 6, optical components such as a transparent plastic lens 61 and a cover 62 are provided below the blade members 4 a and 4 b of the front cover portion 2. Is attached. These optical components transmit or refract light emitted from the LEDs 64 of the LED substrate 63 attached to the rear side of the main body 3 to give a decoration effect to the variable prize winning device. A decorative member made of such an LED substrate or an optical component can be attached to the variable winning device 1.

可変入賞装置1は、図3(b)及び図6に示すように、遊技球の通過を検出可能なスイッチ18を取り付けた案内部19が、ソレノイド51の下部に取り付けられている。案内部19は図3(b)に示すように、本体部3の玉通路17に接続するように取り付けられ、可変入賞装置1の入賞口5に入賞した遊技球が玉通路17を通り、案内部19のスイッチ18を通過して、可変入賞装置1の外部に排出されるように構成されている。   As shown in FIG. 3B and FIG. 6, the variable winning device 1 has a guide portion 19 to which a switch 18 capable of detecting passage of a game ball is attached attached to a lower portion of a solenoid 51. As shown in FIG. 3 (b), the guide portion 19 is attached so as to be connected to the ball passage 17 of the main body portion 3, and the game ball that has won a prize opening 5 of the variable winning device 1 passes through the ball passage 17 and guides it.

上記実施例の可変入賞装置はソレノイドなどの駆動源を用いて羽根部材を駆動させる、いわゆる電動式可変入賞装置について説明したが、本発明可変入賞装置は、駆動源のない機械式可変入賞装置にも適用することができる。以下、変更例として、駆動源のない可変入賞装置について説明する。駆動源を備えていない可変入賞装置としては、例えば実公平7−42461号公報に記載の装置が挙げられる。この装置は遊技球の入賞が羽根部材を作動させる構造を備えており、可変入賞装置に遊技球が入賞するごとに、羽根部材の開放と閉鎖とが交互に繰り返される。   Although the variable winning device of the above embodiment has been described with respect to a so-called electric variable winning device in which the blade member is driven using a driving source such as a solenoid, the variable winning device of the present invention is a mechanical variable winning device without a driving source. Can also be applied. Hereinafter, a variable winning device without a drive source will be described as a modified example. An example of a variable winning device that does not include a drive source is the device described in Japanese Utility Model Publication No. 7-42461. This device has a structure in which winning of a game ball activates a wing member, and opening and closing of the wing member are alternately repeated every time a game ball wins the variable winning device.

変更例の可変入賞装置は、上記実施例と同様に、前飾り板の裏面に規制片を設け、前記羽根部材の前面に前記規制片が係合する規制溝を設け、前記羽根部材の規制溝に前飾り板の前記規制片が当接することで前記羽根部材の回動範囲が規制されるように形成する以外の構成は、上記公報に記載されている構造を採用すればよい。   As in the above embodiment, the variable winning device of the modified example is provided with a restriction piece on the back surface of the front decorative plate, a restriction groove for engaging the restriction piece on the front surface of the blade member, and a restriction groove of the blade member. The structure described in the above publication may be adopted for the configuration other than the configuration in which the rotation range of the blade member is regulated by the contact of the regulation piece of the front decoration plate.
