Also, a hinge portion 28 that is pivotally attached to the front frame 2 is provided on one side of the reinforcing frame 14, and a locking device 7 that closes the transparent plate door frame 6 to the front frame 2 as shown in FIG. A through-hole-shaped engaging portion 29 is provided to which the locking piece 7b is locked. Although the holding frame 27 has a U shape with one side open, it may have a U shape with the upper side open.

  In the embodiment, as shown in FIGS. 2 and 3, a transparent plate 30 made of a synthetic resin such as acrylic or polycarbonate that transmits visible light is interposed in the gap S between the glass plates 24. The transparent plate 30 has substantially the same thickness as the glass plate 24, and a pattern display portion 32 is formed on the surface of the plate to form a groove 31 narrower than the plate thickness and display a desired pattern by the groove 31. ing. In this embodiment, the pattern is provided with a linear straight pattern from the center of the transparent plate 30 toward the left and right. Moreover, LED33 which is a light source which irradiates the symbol display part 32 in the site | part close | similar to the side edge of the transparent plate 30, and the end surface is arrange | positioned. The concave groove 31 is formed in a substantially U shape by laser processing or stamping with a mold, and the open end edge of the concave groove 31 is rounded. For this reason, even when the transparent plate 30 is viewed from the front in the normal state when the LED 33 is turned off, the design display unit 32 is transparent and the edge portion is not rounded so that the design can be clearly seen. In addition, since the symbol display unit 32 formed on the transparent plate 30 is not conspicuous under normal conditions, the symbol display unit 32 makes it difficult to see the display of the variable display device 17 on the five game boards and the flow-down mode of the game ball. Will not occur. The LEDs 33 are arranged at predetermined intervals on the elongated substrate 34 extending over the entire width and length of the side edge of the transparent plate 30 so that the light is directed to the symbol display unit 32. The transparent plate 30 is interposed in the gap S between the glass plates 24 from the side of the holding frame 27, and closes the open end of the holding frame 27 by fitting the substrate 34 into the locking portion 35 of the holding frame 27. At the same time, the glass plate 24 is prevented from being pulled out, and the substrate 34 serves as a retaining plate for the glass plate 24. The substrate 34 is mounted by fitting the lower end of the substrate 34 to the receiving piece 35a of the holding frame 27 and then pressing the upper end of the substrate 34 against the tapered surface of the elastic piece 35b of the locking portion 35, thereby urging the elastic piece 35b. The elastic piece 35b is elastically restored by pressing the substrate 34 further against the substrate 34, and the substrate 34 is pressed and mounted. Further, the wiring drawn out from the board 34 is connected to the control circuit board (not shown) provided on the back side of the game board 5 from the shaft support part 28 side of the transparent plate door frame 6, and according to the game state by the control circuit board. The LED 33 is controlled to be turned on / off so that a decorative effect is produced, and the emission color is set. In addition, although LED33 was provided in the one side end of the transparent plate 30, you may make it provide in multiple places of the peripheral edge of the transparent plate 30. FIG. In addition, the end surface portion of the transparent plate 30 facing the LED 33 is subjected to reflection processing or a reflection plate to reflect the transmitted light so as to improve the light use efficiency, thereby making the symbol display portion 32 more illuminated. It is preferable to do so. The light source is not limited to the LED 33 but may be a fluorescent lamp, a cold cathode tube, a neon tube, or the like, but a small LED that emits irradiation light with high forward directivity is optimal.

  The pachinko machine configured as described above operates the operation handle 11 to launch the game ball of the upper ball tray 9 into the game area 5a, and when the game ball wins the start winning opening 19, the display on the variable display device 17 changes. Thus, the stop symbol is advantageous for the player. Then, for example, when the display of the variable display device 17 fluctuates and a so-called reach state with the possibility of a big hit is reached, the LED 33 is controlled to be turned on by a signal from the control circuit board, and from the end face of the transparent plate 30 to the inside. Light is introduced and the symbol display unit 32 is irradiated. Then, since the pattern drawn radially is drawn by the groove 31, the irradiation light that has traveled through the transparent plate 30 is reflected by the reflecting surface of the groove 31, and the pattern is illuminated and appears to protrude. The player can clearly recognize the outline / line of the symbol. Then, the player can enhance the interest of the game in a manner that gives rise to this unique beauty. At this time, since the LED 33 is provided in the vicinity of the side edge of the transparent plate 30, the LED 33 does not directly enter the player's field of view, which obstructs the visual recognition of the symbol on the symbol display unit 32 and the game board 5 surface. There is no. In addition, by changing the LED 33 to blink or turn on sequentially, the light appears to move sequentially through the radial lines of the design, and the player has a higher sense of expectation with respect to the game content. Can have. Furthermore, by arranging LEDs 33 of different colors for each radial line or causing the LEDs 33 to emit multiple colors, the symbols on the symbol display unit 32 appear to illuminate and illuminate, making the game atmosphere more exciting and decorative. Can increase the sex. Since the pattern of the present embodiment is drawn radially from the center, for example, when light is emitted from the side of the transparent plate 30 in the reach state where the left and right patterns are aligned on the display unit of the variable display device 17, As shown in FIG. 1, since the center of the radial line is located at the center of the variable display device 17 as shown in FIG. 1, the light energy can be injected into the fluctuating symbol. It is possible to enhance the player's expectation and make the game interesting. In addition, it is preferable that the symbol on the symbol display unit 32 has a relationship with a desired symbol / pattern drawn on the front surface of the game board 5. Combined with the design and pattern, it can be a three-dimensional design. Furthermore, it is preferable to apply a pattern having continuity or relevance to the pattern of the transparent plate 30 on the surface of the decorative frame body 13, and the pattern will spread on the front surface of the gaming machine to have a powerful and innovative design. Can do. In the figure, a line that is continuous with the pattern of the transparent plate 30 is drawn on the surface of the decorative frame main body 13. For example, a radial pattern is applied to the transparent plate 30 by the concave groove 31 to correspond to the pattern. Thus, the image or theme of the entire gaming machine can be “flower” by giving a petal pattern to the periphery of the opening window 15. In the embodiment, the LED 33 is turned on in the reach state. However, the LED 33 may be turned on at the time of starting winning a prize, a big hit, or the like. Preferably, the design of the transparent plate 30 matches the gaming state. It is better to enhance the decoration and production effects. In addition, a sound effect may be generated from the speaker 12 at the same time as the LED 33 is turned on to enhance the effect.

  In the above embodiment, the transparent plate 30 is interposed in the interval S between the two glass plates 24 held by the holding frame 27 of the transparent plate door frame 6, but either one held by the holding frame 27. One glass plate 24 may be a synthetic resin transparent plate 30 on which the symbol display portion 32 is formed. Preferably, the synthetic resin transparent plate 30 is disposed on the game board 5 side that the player does not directly touch, and the symbol display portion 32 is formed on the surface side not in direct contact with the game ball. At this time, it is preferable that the LED 33 is provided in the vicinity of the side end of the transparent plate 30 and directed toward the symbol display unit 32.

  By providing the transparent plate 30 with the pattern on the transparent plate door frame 6 so as to be detachable, the transparent plate 30 can be arbitrarily replaced. For example, as shown in FIGS. 4 (a) to 4 (d), a transparent plate 30 having a pattern display portion 32 such as various patterns / characters formed by curves and straight lines is prepared. When changing the image of the model, by exchanging the transparent plate 30 together, it is possible to easily make a pattern corresponding to the new model, and various effects are possible. In addition, you may make it give a design, such as a character, to the part which faces the game area | region 5a, without necessarily giving a design to the transparent board 30 whole. Further, although the transparent plate 30 forming the symbol display portion 32 is made of synthetic resin, the concave groove 31 may be formed directly on the glass plate 24 to display the symbol on the symbol display portion 32. At this time, it is preferable that the glass plate 24 is formed by a pressing die having a pattern formed by a protrusion.

  In the above embodiment, the glass plates 24 are fitted one by one in the holding grooves 27a of the holding frame 27, but so-called multilayer glass in which two glass plates 24 are bonded to the frame member 36 in advance as shown in FIG.

The shape may be related to the image with a relationship with the design. In addition, a plurality of decoration members 43 are not necessarily provided, and one decoration member 43 may be provided. The decoration member 43 may be provided at an irregular position without being provided at the symmetrical position of the opening window 15 so as to have an unexpected design. You may make it raise property. Preferably, the decorative member 43 is provided at a position that is easily visible to the player. As described above, the decoration member 43 is not limited to the installation location, and can be provided at an arbitrary position of the opening window 15. Therefore, the degree of freedom in design can be increased and the decoration effect can be improved.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 13, a sensor 48 is provided on the inner peripheral surface of the opening window 15 that forms the accommodation space 42, and detects the state in which the decorative member 43 falls down and is accommodated in the accommodation space 42. . In the embodiment, the sensor 48 is an optical sensor including a light emitting unit and a light receiving unit, but may be a micro switch that directly detects and touches the decorative member 43. Furthermore, when the decorative member 43 is located in the accommodation space 42 and covers a part of the game area 5a, the player's game is hindered, and the symbol display unit 32 applied to the folded transparent plate 30 is hidden. In addition, it is preferable to provide an informing means for informing the lying state of the decorative member 43. The notification means is activated when the decoration member 43 is detected by the sensor 48, and the means is not particularly limited. The speaker may be visually notified by turning on the lens member 25. A warning may be issued from 12 to be notified audibly. Further, when the decorative member 43 is lying down and stored in the storage space 42, the LED 48 that the sensor 48 detects the decorative member 43 and irradiates the symbol display unit 32 is not turned on, and the decorative member 43 is displayed in the decorative frame. When the detection of the sensor 48 is released by rotating to the front side of the main body 13, the LED 33 may be turned on to irradiate the symbol display unit 32.

  Unlike a normal pachinko machine, the right-handed pachinko machine has to win a game ball at the specific winning opening 39 when the symbols of the variable display device 17 are aligned, so that the “hit” is determined. The way of hitting is different from the way of hitting “big hit”, so it is difficult for beginners to play, so even if it becomes a “big hit”, a pachinko ball cannot be won at the necessary place and so-called “punk” , Sometimes causing damage to the player. However, the pachinko machine having the above-described configuration lights up the LED 33 when the symbols of the variable display device 17 are aligned, and illuminates the symbol display portion 32 of the part surrounding the specific winning opening 39 to make the place to hit the player. It can be clearly recognized. Then, when the game ball hit by the player according to the instruction wins the specific winning opening 39, the LED 33 is turned on so as to irradiate a portion surrounding the rotary winning opening 40. Then, the player can clearly recognize the place where the concave groove 31 in the region surrounding the rotary winning opening 40 is reflected and hit next. For this reason, even a player who plays a pachinko machine for the first time can understand the way of playing clearly through the effects of light, so he does not “puncture” and cause damage to the player. As described above, it is possible not only to raise the decoration effect by raising the symbol of the symbol display unit 32 by the effect of light, but also to allow the player to understand how to play.

  Moreover, since the pachinko machine having the above-described configuration accommodates the decorative member 43 in a storage space 42 so as to cover the transparent plate 30 as shown in FIG. The exposed area is reduced to protect the transparent plate 30 and prevent it from being damaged. Moreover, since the decorative member 43 is formed to have substantially the same thickness as the depth space of the opening window 15 and supports the decorative member 43 so as not to protrude forward from the decorative frame body 13, the transparent plate door frame 6 is bulky. The transportation cost can be reduced. When the pachinko machine is installed in the hall, the decorative member 43 is rotated to the front side, and the decorative member 43 protrudes forward from the surface of the decorative frame body 13 so that the transparent plate door frame 6 is three-dimensionally. The decorated and flat design can be made undulating, and the player can enjoy a novel design. Further, the decorative member 43 is rotated from the position where the decorative member 43 covers the transparent plate 30 and the game area 5a is hidden to the position facing the surface of the decorative frame main body 13 so that the handling explanation can be visually recognized by the player. Without hiding the area 5a, the player can visually recognize the flow-down mode of the game ball to the end of flowing into the out-ball discharge port 23, and surely enjoy the effect of the symbol display unit 32 formed on the transparent plate 30. be able to. At this time, as shown in FIG. 12 and FIG. 13, the decorative member 43 is rotated so that the surface of the decorative member 43 overlaps the surface of the decorative frame main body 13, so that the key hole 8a of the cylinder lock 8 is hidden by the decorative member 43. It is possible to prevent the player from tampering with the key hole 8a or operating the key hole 8a to open the front frame 2 or the transparent plate door frame 6 illegally. Further, since the decorative member 43 is rotated so as to cover the front surface of the decorative frame main body 13, at least a portion of the decorative frame main body 13 that is covered by the decorative member 43 does not need to stick to the decorative property, and the decorative frame main body 13 The design can be simplified and the mold can be simplified, contributing to cost reduction.

  It should be noted that an electric component such as a lens member provided with a light source such as an LED, a speaker, and a display device is provided so that the player can visually recognize the decorative member 43 in a protruding state so as to further enhance the decoration. You may make it show a decoration effect and double a decoration effect. At this time, in order to electrically connect the decorative member 43 and the decorative frame main body 13, electric wiring is incorporated into the cylindrical shaft portion 46 a of the hinge 46 of the decorative member 43 so that the decorative frame main body 13 and the decorative frame main body 13 are electrically connected. It is only necessary to connect them. Further, in order to electrically connect the decorative member 43 and the decorative frame main body 13, a connector member provided on the board of the electrical component housed in the decorative member 43 is exposed on the front side of the decorative member 43. The connector connected to the connector member may be exposed at a position on the surface where the decorative member 43 rotates and the connector member of the decorative member 43 faces. By doing so, the decorative member 43 is not electrically connected to the decorative frame body 13 side in the covered state, and the decorative member 43 is in a protruding state in which the decorative member 43 is rotated to decorate the decorative frame main body 13. By connecting the connector member 43 and the connector of the decorative frame body 13, the electrical components of the decorative member 43 are electrically connected to the substrate of the decorative frame body 13. At this time, by fitting and connecting the connectors, the protruding state of the decorative member 43 can be maintained in a stable state, and the decorative member 43 rotates unnecessarily to conceal the symbol display portion 32. There is nothing.

  Further, as the game area 5a becomes larger, even if the opening window 15 becomes larger and the frame width of the decorative frame main body 13 becomes smaller than 50 mm, the occupied area of the symbol display portion 32 becomes larger and it rotates to the periphery of the opening. By rotating the decorative member 43 provided freely and projecting it to the front side of the decorative frame main body 13, the decorative property of the decorative frame main body 13 with poor decorative properties can be enhanced.

  Although the transparent plate door frame 6 has been described as an example in the embodiment, the front frame 2 is used as a decorative frame, and an opening window 15 is provided directly in the front frame 2 so that the symbol display unit 32 is formed. The game board 5 may be visually recognized. At this time, the game board mounting frame 4 is preferably provided separately from the front frame 2, and the game board mounting frame 4 is provided so as to be openable and closable with respect to the machine frame 1 or the front frame 2. 5 should be exposed.

  Further, although the gaming machine has been described as a pachinko machine in the embodiment, the “gaming machine” here means that the gaming area can be seen through a transparent plate provided on a decorative frame, and a pachinko ball Arrange ball machines, sparrow ball game machines, etc. are included in addition to pachinko machines that play by hitting the board. Also, it can be applied to a so-called “parrot” spinning machine that collects pachinko balls as betting balls and arbitrarily stops the rotation of the rotator that is displayed as a symbol, and pays out a predetermined number of prize balls according to the stopped symbols. is there. Further, it can be applied to a slot machine using coins as a game medium.
