  At the upper end and the lower end of the illumination member 43, substantially cylindrical connecting portions 43a and 43a are extended, and the connecting portions 43a and 43a are divided at the central portion in the axial direction. And the substantially cylindrical rotation part 44a extended below from the lower end of the substantially plate-shaped rotation member 44 is embed | buried under the part parted in the upper connection part 43a. A shaft hole penetrating in the axial direction is formed in each of the central portions of the upper connecting portion 43a and the rotating portion 44a, and a metal rotating shaft 43b is provided so as to penetrate the shaft hole. Thereby, the rotation member 44 can rotate about the rotation axis 43b. Similarly, the rotating member 45 is connected to the lower connecting portion 43a, and the rotating member 45 can rotate about the lower rotating shaft 43b. Similarly to the illumination member 43, the rotation members 44 and 45 also have LEDs inside, and can emit light respectively.

  FIG. 5 shows a part of the pivotal support 20 as viewed from an oblique direction. In the same figure, the recessed part 21 is formed by parting the part of the pivot part 20 which protrudes annularly. A metal glass holding rail 13b protrudes from the back side of the pivotal support portion 20, and one end of the glass 13a is held by the glass holding rail 13b. The recess 21 has a semi-cylindrical shape, and the height defined by the distance between the bottom surface 21 a and the top surface 21 b is slightly larger than the height of the shaft portion 41. The curvature of the side surface 21 c of the recess 21 is formed to be substantially the same as the curvature of the side surface of the shaft portion 41. A hole is formed in the side surface 21c, and the wiring 22d is led out from this hole. The wiring 22d is formed to a predetermined length, and has a connector 22e at the tip.

  A circular shaft hole 22 is formed in the upper surface 21 b of the recess 21, and the diameter of the coaxial hole 22 is slightly larger than the diameter of the rotation shaft 42. On the other hand, a drive mechanism holding portion 26 is formed in the lower portion of the bottom surface 21a of the concave portion 21 in the pivotal support portion 20 by notching the front side portion. On the other hand, a lid member 27 having the same shape as the cut-out drive mechanism holding portion 26 is formed, and a pair of engaging claws 27 a and 27 a are projected from the lid member 27. The lid member 27 can be fitted into the drive mechanism holding portion 26, and the engaging claws 27 a and 27 a are engaged with the engaging grooves 26 a and 26 a formed on the inner wall surface of the pivotal support portion 20 at that time. Match.

  At this time, the semicircular cutout 23 a formed on the bottom surface 21 a of the concave portion 21 and the semicircular cutout 23 b formed on the upper surface of the lid member 27 are combined, and are larger than the diameter of the rotating shaft 42. A shaft hole 23 having a slightly larger diameter is formed. The upper shaft hole 22 and the lower shaft hole 23 in the recess 21 are located on the same vertical axis. A motor 24 and a switch 25 are held inside the drive mechanism holding unit 26. The motor 24 has a gear 24a at the upper end and is provided with a drive shaft standing in the vertical direction. The gear 24a can be driven to rotate by supplying a predetermined current. The switch 25 is an element capable of switching ON / OFF of the current supplied to the motor 24 and the direction of the current according to a command from the control board or the like.

  In a state where the lid member 27 is not fitted into the drive mechanism holding portion 26, the lower shaft hole 23 is opened, so that the rotation shaft 43 b of the additional member 40 can be inserted into the upper shaft hole 22. Specifically, the rotary shaft 43 b can be inserted into the upper shaft hole 22 by pushing the shaft portion 41 upward while slightly tilting the shaft portion 41 of the additional member 40. Thereafter, the lid member 27 is fitted into the drive mechanism holding portion 26, whereby the rotation shaft 43 b of the additional member 40 can be supported also in the lower shaft hole 23. As a result, the additional member 40 is held so as to be pivotable about the pivot shaft in the vertical direction with respect to the pivot portion 20.

  Further, when the rotating shaft 43b is supported in the upper and lower shaft holes 22 and 23 as described above, the gear 42a provided on the rotating shaft 43b and the gear 24a of the motor 24 can be engaged with each other. Therefore, the driving force of the motor 24 can be transmitted to the rotating shaft 43 b of the additional member 40, and the additional member 40 can be driven by driving the motor 24. Therefore, by giving a command to the switch 25, the additional member 40 can be rotated, stopped, or the rotation direction can be switched.

  In attaching the additional member 40 to the pivotal support portion 20, the connector 22 e at the tip of the wiring 22 d is fitted in advance with a connector (not shown) formed on the side surface of the shaft portion 41. By doing in this way, it becomes possible to supply power to the additional member 40, and it becomes possible to light LED43d, 43d, 43d .... When the additional member 40 rotates, the connector on the shaft 41 side also moves, so the connector 22e also moves. Since the wiring 22d is formed longer, it is possible to allow the connector 22e to move as the additional member 40 rotates. That is, the illumination in the illumination member 43 can be realized while the additional member 40 is rotated. Further, since the rotating members 44 and 45 are also indirectly supplied with power by the connector 22e, they can be illuminated similarly.

  With this configuration, illumination with a high decorative effect can be performed by the additional member 40. For example, the gaming state can be reliably transmitted to the player by controlling the lighting timing and the turning timing of the additional member 40 according to the gaming state of the LEDs 43d, 43d, 43d. For example, the blinking cycle of the LEDs 43d, 43d, 43d... May be shortened in the big hit state, or the reciprocation cycle of the rotation of the additional member 40 and the rotation of the additional member 40 may be shortened. By doing in this way, it can be effectively transmitted to a player that it is in a special gaming state. Further, when the main power supply of the pachinko gaming machine 1 is turned off, the additional members 30, 40, 50 may be rotated toward the game area 14. By doing in this way, it becomes possible to perform maintenance, transportation, etc. smoothly when the pachinko gaming machine 1 is not in operation.

The speaker member 143 includes a speaker 143d therein, and a plurality of holes 143e, 143e, 143e,... For transmitting the sound of the speaker 143d to the outside are formed in the housing. In addition, rotating speakers 144 and 145 are respectively connected to the upper and lower portions of the speaker member 143 so as to be able to rotate, and the rotating speakers 144 and 145 can output sound.

  In this way, the additional member 140 may be used as a speaker. By opening the additional member 140, the speaker can be arranged so as to surround the player, so that a high surround effect can be realized. In addition, it is possible to prevent the player from confusing the sound emitted from the adjacent pachinko gaming machine. In addition, a speaker system may be formed in which the additional member 140 is attached to a plurality of positions (for example, up, down, left, and right of the game area), and each speaker shares a band for output. Further, in this case, by providing a sound processor suitable for the speaker system on the gaming machine side, it is possible to output realistic sound. Of course, the left and right additional members 140 may output stereo sound.

  Thus, it is possible to achieve a high acoustic effect by surrounding the player with the speaker, but the additional member 140 can be folded, so that it can be stored in the state shown in FIG. 2 as necessary. I can leave. Therefore, transportation and maintenance can be easily performed. In addition, what is necessary is just to connect the cable for transmitting an audio | voice signal to the speaker 143d and the rotation speakers 144 and 145 like the wiring 22d in 1st embodiment.

The liquid crystal holding unit 243 includes a liquid crystal display 243d therein, and exposes the display surface of the liquid crystal display 243d from a rectangular opening formed on the front side. In addition, rotating speakers 244 and 245 are rotatably connected to the upper and lower portions of the liquid crystal holding unit 243, respectively, and sound can be output from the rotating speakers 244 and 245.

  The liquid crystal display 243d is a display element that can reproduce video according to predetermined video data. Thus, by providing the liquid crystal display 243d, dynamic display can be performed even around the gaming area. Therefore, it is possible to form a game machine with richer expressiveness. Note that a cable for transmitting video data to the liquid crystal display 243d may be connected like the wiring 22d in the first embodiment. Also in this embodiment, since the additional member 240 can be folded, it can be stored in a state as shown in FIG. 2 as necessary. Further, by folding the additional member 240, it is possible to prevent the liquid crystal display 243d from being damaged during transportation.
