Description

本発明は、パチンコ機などの遊技機に関する。   The present invention relates to a gaming machine such as a pachinko machine.
近年、パチンコ機などの遊技機としては、遊技盤の略中央に液晶表示装置などの表示部を配置し、前記表示部を視認可能とする開口部が形成された装飾又は演出用のセンターケースを、前記表示部の周囲に配置したものが主流となっている。この種の遊技機の遊技領域内において遊技者が最も注視するセンターケースは、表示部の大型化の影響もあって、大型化や複雑化が進み、それに伴ってセンターケース内に可動部材を配設することや、可動部材を表示部の表示内容と絡めて複雑に動かすことにより、装飾効果や遊技の進行に関する演出を行うようにした遊技機が提案されている。例えば特許文献1のように、センターケースの両サイドに前後方向に機構等を配置した可動演出装置を配設し、常態では表示部の両脇に止まっている可動演出部材を表示部方向に動かして、表示内容と連動した可動演出を行うことで効果的な演出を行うとともに、可動演出部材や電気的駆動機構等を手前側から奥手側に向けて配することで、省スペース化を実現した遊技機がある。   In recent years, as a gaming machine such as a pachinko machine, a center case for decoration or production in which a display unit such as a liquid crystal display device is arranged in the approximate center of the game board and an opening that makes the display unit visible is formed. Those arranged around the display section are mainly used. The center case that the player pays the most attention to in the gaming area of this type of gaming machine has been increased in size and complexity due to the increase in size of the display unit, and accordingly, a movable member is arranged in the center case. There has been proposed a gaming machine in which an effect relating to a decoration effect and the progress of a game is performed by installing or moving a movable member in a complicated manner in association with display contents of a display unit. For example, as in Patent Document 1, a movable effect device having a mechanism or the like arranged in the front-rear direction is arranged on both sides of the center case, and the movable effect member that is normally stopped on both sides of the display unit is moved in the direction of the display unit. In addition to providing an effective production by performing a movable production linked to the display content, space saving has been realized by arranging movable production members and electrical drive mechanisms from the front side to the back side. There is a gaming machine.
特開2004−105513号公報JP 2004-105513 A
しかし、上記背景技術における遊技機のセンターケースでは、可動演出部材の動作方向は遊技盤の面方向への動作に限られており、冗長な演出しか行えず、遊技の興趣を向上させるような期待感や、装飾効果は得られない。
さらにこの場合、遊技盤の面方向に広がるスペースを省略しようとしているため、可動演出装置の多くの部材を前後方向に配置することでスペースを確保している。そのため、可動演出部材の動作方向はさらに一定方向、すなわち横方向(表示部側、遊技領域の面方向)に限られてしまい、奥行き感のある前後動の動作を行うような斬新な可動演出部材を実現することはできないという問題があった。また、作動する領域が面方向に限られると、その分面方向のスペースを確保することになるが、そうなれば必然的に可動領域は狭くなるという問題もあった。
However, in the center case of the gaming machine in the above background art, the direction of movement of the movable effect member is limited to the operation in the direction of the surface of the game board, and only a redundant effect can be performed, and the expectation that the interest of the game is improved. A feeling and decoration effect cannot be obtained.
Further, in this case, since the space that extends in the surface direction of the game board is to be omitted, the space is secured by arranging many members of the movable effect device in the front-rear direction. Therefore, the movement direction of the movable effect member is further limited to a certain direction, that is, the lateral direction (the display unit side, the surface direction of the game area), and a novel movable effect member that performs a forward / backward movement with a sense of depth. There was a problem that could not be realized. Further, when the operating area is limited to the plane direction, a space in the plane direction is secured, but there is a problem that the movable area is inevitably narrowed.
しかし、単に単体の可動物を奥行き方向(前後方向)に可動させるようにしただけでは、既存の面方向の可動物を前後方向に可動するように変更しただけであり、目新しい、斬新な演出効果を奏することはできない。
そこで本発明は、上記のような問題点を解決するためになされたもので、センターケースにおける前後動という斬新な可動部材の動作を遊技者に見せるとともに、今までにない装飾効果、遊技の興趣の向上を実現する遊技機を提供することを主目的とする。また、可動部材のための構造が、面方向に広がりすぎず、省スペース化が図れる遊技機を提供することを、さらなる目的とする。
However, simply moving a single movable object in the depth direction (front-rear direction) simply changes the existing surface-direction movable object to move in the front-rear direction, which is a novel and innovative effect. Can not play.
Accordingly, the present invention has been made to solve the above-described problems, and allows the player to show the movement of a novel movable member such as a back-and-forth movement in the center case, as well as an unprecedented decorative effect and fun of the game. The main purpose is to provide a gaming machine that can improve the performance. It is another object of the present invention to provide a gaming machine in which the structure for the movable member does not spread too much in the plane direction and can save space.

Next, the gaming machine according to claim 6 of the present application includes a display device body having a display unit,
In a gaming machine provided with a center case having at least a decorative frame body in which an opening through which the display unit can be visually recognized is formed, and a decorative movable part provided in the decorative frame body,
The decorative movable part is
A base member for attaching the decorative movable part to the decorative frame,

The interlocking bearing portions of the second movable member and the third movable member are elongated holes, and the timing at which the interlocking shaft hits the inner surface is different, so that the operation timing and operation of the first to third movable members are different. There is a difference in quantity,
The first to third movable members are operable in an operating state in which a sufficient gap for radiating light to the front side is formed between the movable members,
The light emitter can emit light to the front side of the movable member through a gap between the movable members in the operating state.
請求項1に記載の遊技機によれば、センターケースに設けられた可動部材が前後動するという今までにない斬新な演出を行うことができる。しかも、同芯状に配置された複数の可動部材が連動して動作するので、前後方向に奥行き感のある演出を行うことができる。さらに、単なる単体の前後動では装飾効果は高まらず、目立たなくなってしまう虞があるが、複数の同芯状の可動部材が連動して可動するため、奥行き方向の移動でも動きがわかりやすく際だった演出効果が得られる。
また、表示部での表示内容に絡めて上記可動部材の動作(或いはさらに、後述する光の照射)を行うことで、センターケース内全てを有効に利用して装飾領域とすることができる。
また、可動部材の動作タイミングと表示部の表示演出、遊技の進行等を同期させる等すれば、通常分かりづらい予告や報知等を確実に遊技者に印象づけることができる効果もある。
また、可動部材が前後方向に動くものであるため、可動部材の動作範囲を遊技球の動きや衝突に絡まない位置に容易に設定でき、可動部材の高い強度(例えば、遊技球の衝突に耐え得る強度)を確保する必要がなく、コスト低減にも貢献できる利点がある。
According to the gaming machine of the first aspect, an unprecedented effect that the movable member provided in the center case moves back and forth can be performed. In addition, since the plurality of movable members arranged concentrically operate, an effect with a feeling of depth in the front-rear direction can be performed. Furthermore, the simple back-and-forth movement does not enhance the decoration effect and may not stand out. However, since multiple concentric movable members move in conjunction with each other, movement in the depth direction is easy to understand. A directing effect can be obtained.
Further, by performing the operation of the movable member in connection with the display content on the display unit (or further, irradiation of light described later), the entire interior of the center case can be effectively used as a decoration region.
Further, by synchronizing the operation timing of the movable member with the display effect on the display unit, the progress of the game, etc., there is an effect that it is possible to surely impress the player with a notice or notification that is usually difficult to understand.
In addition, since the movable member moves in the front-rear direction, the movable member's operating range can be easily set at a position that is not entangled with the movement or collision of the game ball, and the high strength of the movable member (for example, withstands the collision of the game ball). There is an advantage that it is possible to contribute to cost reduction.
また、請求項2に記載の遊技機によれば、共通の固定軸によって各可動部材を回動可能に支持して各可動部材の前後動を可能とし、各可動部材を共通の連動軸により連結することによって連動させ、各可動部材のうちの何れか一つの可動部材である特定可動部材を回動させる駆動機構によって、各可動部材の前後動を実現している。
このため、例えば各可動部材を別個に支持して別個に駆動する構成等に比較して、部品点数が格段に少なくて済み、面方向においても無駄なスペースを設ける必要がない。また、1つの駆動源で多くの可動部材に、動作を行わせることができる。
また、請求項3に記載の遊技機によれば、各可動部材の作動時期や作動量に違いが設けられているため、各可動部材が一様に動く場合に比較して、より躍動感溢れる面白みの有る動きとなり、より演出効果が高まる。
According to the gaming machine of the second aspect, each movable member is rotatably supported by a common fixed shaft so that each movable member can be moved back and forth, and each movable member is connected by a common interlocking shaft. In this way, the movable member is moved back and forth by a drive mechanism that rotates the specific movable member that is one of the movable members.
For this reason, for example, compared with the structure etc. which support each movable member separately and drive separately, the number of parts is remarkably small, and it is not necessary to provide a useless space also in a surface direction. In addition, many movable members can be operated by one drive source.
In addition, according to the gaming machine of the third aspect, since there is a difference in the operation timing and the operation amount of each movable member, it is more dynamic than when each movable member moves uniformly. The movement is interesting and the production effect is enhanced.
また請求項4に記載の遊技機によれば、作動状態における各可動部材相互間の隙間を介して、後方の発光部からの光を各可動部材の前面側に放射可能である。このため、各可動部材後方からの光がまるでサンバースト(雲間からもれる日光)のように各可動部材の隙間から前面側へ届き、非常にインパクトのある高い装飾効果が奏される。さらにいえば、各可動部材が作動した時の隙間を介し、いちばん後方から照射しているので、より奥行き感のある照明効果が期待できる。   According to the gaming machine of the fourth aspect, the light from the rear light emitting part can be emitted to the front side of each movable member through the gap between each movable member in the operating state. For this reason, the light from the rear of each movable member reaches the front side through the gap between each movable member like a sunburst (sunlight leaking from between the clouds), and a highly decorative high impact effect is achieved. Furthermore, since the irradiation is performed from the back through the gap when each movable member is operated, a lighting effect with a sense of depth can be expected.
また請求項5に記載の遊技機によれば、発光部の前面側であって可動部材の裏面側に配設された装飾レンズ部材の前記光を透す面が、光を散乱させる凹凸形状であるとともに、前記発光体は、フルカラーLEDである。このため、通常のLEDよりも効果的な照明、装飾効果が得られる。また、装飾レンズ部材の上記凹凸形状によって、より拡散した効果的な光の照射が可能となる。   According to the gaming machine of claim 5, the light transmitting surface of the decorative lens member disposed on the front surface side of the light emitting unit and on the back surface side of the movable member has an uneven shape that scatters light. In addition, the light emitter is a full color LED. For this reason, more effective illumination and decoration effect than a normal LED can be obtained. Moreover, the uneven | corrugated shape of a decorative lens member enables irradiation of more diffused and effective light.
次に、請求項6に記載の遊技機によれば、センターケースに同芯円状に設けられた楕円形状の複数の可動部材(第1〜第3可動部材)が前後動するという今までにない斬新な演出を行うことができる。しかも、同芯円状に配置された複数の可動部材が連動して動作するので、前後方向に奥行き感のある演出を行うことができる。さらに、単なる単体の前後動では装飾効果は高まらず、目立たなくなってしまう虞があるが、複数の同芯円状の可動部材が連動して可動するため、奥行き方向の異動でも動きがわかりやすく際だった演出効果が得られる。
また、表示部での表示内容に絡めて上記可動部材の動作(或いはさらに、発光部からの光の照射)を行うことで、センターケース内全てを有効に利用して装飾領域とすることができる。
また、可動部材の動作タイミングと表示部の表示演出、遊技の進行等を同期させる等すれば、通常分かりづらい予告や報知等を確実に遊技者に印象づけることができる効果もある。
また、可動部材が前後方向に動くものであるため、可動部材の動作範囲を遊技球の動きや衝突に絡まない位置に容易に設定でき、可動部材の高い強度(例えば、遊技球の衝突に耐え得る強度)を確保する必要がなく、コスト低減にも貢献できる利点がある。
Next, according to the gaming machine of the sixth aspect, until now, a plurality of elliptical movable members (first to third movable members) provided concentrically on the center case move back and forth. There is no novel production. In addition, since the plurality of movable members arranged concentrically operate in conjunction with each other, it is possible to produce an effect with a sense of depth in the front-rear direction. In addition, simple anteroposterior movement does not enhance the decoration effect and may not stand out. However, since multiple concentric circular movable members move in conjunction with each other, movement in the depth direction is easy to understand. A dramatic effect can be obtained.
In addition, by performing the operation of the movable member in connection with the display content on the display unit (or further, irradiation of light from the light emitting unit), it is possible to effectively use the entire interior of the center case as a decoration region. .
Further, by synchronizing the operation timing of the movable member with the display effect on the display unit, the progress of the game, etc., there is an effect that it is possible to surely impress the player with a notice or notification that is usually difficult to understand.
In addition, since the movable member moves in the front-rear direction, the operation range of the movable member can be easily set at a position that does not involve the movement or collision of the game ball, and the high strength of the movable member (for example, withstands the collision of the game ball). There is an advantage that it is possible to contribute to cost reduction.
また同遊技機では、共通の固定軸によって各可動部材を回動可能に支持して各可動部材の前後動を可能とし、各可動部材を共通の連動軸により連結することによって連動させ、各可動部材のうちの一つの可動部材である第1可動部材を回動させる駆動機構によって、各可動部材の前後動を実現している。
このため、例えば各可動部材を別個に支持して別個に駆動する構成等に比較して、部品点数が格段に少なくて済み、面方向においても無駄なスペースを設ける必要がない。また、1つの駆動源で多くの可動部材に、動作を行わせることができる。
また同遊技機によれば、各可動部材の作動時期や作動量に違いが設けられているため、各可動部材が一様に動く場合に比較して、より躍動感溢れる面白みの有る動きとなり、より演出効果が高まる。
また同遊技機によれば、作動状態における各可動部材相互間の隙間を介して、後方の発光部からの光を各可動部材の前面側に放射可能である。このため、各可動部材後方からの光がまるでサンバースト(雲間からもれる日光)のように各可動部材の隙間から前面側へ届き、非常にインパクトのある高い装飾効果が奏される。さらにいえば、各可動部材が作動した時の隙間を介し、いちばん後方から照射しているので、より奥行き感のある照明効果が期待できる。
In the same game machine, each movable member is supported rotatably by a common fixed shaft so that each movable member can be moved back and forth, and each movable member is linked by a common interlocking shaft so that each movable member can move. Each movable member is moved back and forth by a drive mechanism that rotates a first movable member that is one of the members.
For this reason, for example, compared with the structure etc. which support each movable member separately and drive separately, the number of parts is remarkably small, and it is not necessary to provide a useless space also in a surface direction. In addition, many movable members can be operated by one drive source.
Also, according to the gaming machine, since there is a difference in the operation timing and operation amount of each movable member, compared to the case where each movable member moves uniformly, it becomes a more interesting and exciting movement, The production effect is increased.
Further, according to the gaming machine, light from the light emitting unit behind can be emitted to the front side of each movable member through a gap between the movable members in the operating state. For this reason, the light from the rear of each movable member reaches the front side through the gap between each movable member like a sunburst (sunlight leaking from between the clouds), and a highly decorative high impact effect is achieved. Furthermore, since the irradiation is performed from the back through the gap when each movable member is operated, a lighting effect with a sense of depth can be expected.

In addition, fixed bearing portions 51a, 52a, and 53a and interlocking bearing portions 51b, 52b, and 53b are formed on the respective arm portions.
Here, the fixed bearing portions 51a, 52a, and 53a are substantially vertical through holes through which the common fixed shaft 54 is inserted, and pass through the coaxial positions of the two plate-like portions constituting each arm portion. Is formed. The fixed shaft 54 is arranged in a substantially vertical direction and is a shaft fixed to the base member 39. With the fixed shaft 54 as a center, each arm portion and each movable member integrated therewith are separately provided. It is rotatably supported. A slight gap is formed between the inner periphery of the interlocking bearing portions 51b, 52b, and 53b and the outer periphery of the fixed shaft 54 so as to enable rotational movement about the fixed shaft 54 of each movable member. Has been. However, the interlocking bearing portions 51b, 52b, and 53b are not holes (for example, long holes) that positively allow relative motion other than the rotational motion to the fixed shaft 54. The fixed bearing portions 51a, 52a, 53a and the fixed shaft 54 constitute a support mechanism for each movable member.
また、連動軸受部51b,52b,53bは、共通の連動軸55が挿通される略上下方向の貫通口である。このうち、第1可動部材41の連動軸受部51bは、第1腕部51を構成する2枚の板状部の同軸位置を貫くように形成されているが、第2可動部材42と第3可動部材43の連動軸受部52b,53bは第2腕部52と第3腕部53の下側の板状部のみに形成されている。
なお、連動軸55は、固定軸54と平行に配置され、第1腕部51と一体に固定軸54を中心として回転運動する軸である。即ち、第1可動部材41の連動軸受部51bは、連動軸55に対して自転以外の相対運動を積極的に許容する孔(例えば長孔)ではなく、連動軸55が連動軸受部51bに例えば圧入されて固定されていてもよい。
The interlocking bearing portions 51b, 52b, and 53b are substantially vertical through holes through which the common interlocking shaft 55 is inserted. Among these, the interlocking bearing portion 51 b of the first movable member 41 is formed so as to penetrate the coaxial position of the two plate-like portions constituting the first arm portion 51. The interlocking bearing portions 52 b and 53 b of the movable member 43 are formed only on the lower plate-like portions of the second arm portion 52 and the third arm portion 53.
The interlocking shaft 55 is a shaft that is arranged in parallel with the fixed shaft 54 and rotates about the fixed shaft 54 integrally with the first arm portion 51. That is, the interlocking bearing portion 51b of the first movable member 41 is not a hole (for example, a long hole) that actively allows relative motion other than rotation with respect to the interlocking shaft 55, but the interlocking shaft 55 is connected to the interlocking bearing portion 51b. It may be press-fitted and fixed.
但し、第2可動部材42と第3可動部材43の連動軸受部52b,53bは、連動軸55に対して自転以外の相対運動を許容する長孔となっており、連動軸55は、連動軸受部52b,53bに対して所定の隙間(前記相対運動のための隙間)を持って嵌め込まれている(即ち、遊嵌されている)。そして、後述する動作を実現すべく、連動軸受部53bと連動軸55の間の隙間は、連動軸受部52bと連動軸55の間の隙間よりも大きくなっている。
即ち、第1可動部材41の連動軸受部51bの断面寸法は連動軸55とほぼ同一の大きさであり、第2可動部材42の連動軸受部52bでは少し広くなり、第3可動部材43の連動軸受部53bではさらに広くなることで、これら3つの可動部材の動作がずれる(詳細後述する)構成となっている。
なお、連動軸受部51b,52b,53bと連動軸55によって、各可動部材の連動機構が構成されている。
However, the interlocking bearing portions 52b and 53b of the second movable member 42 and the third movable member 43 are long holes that allow relative motion other than rotation with respect to the interlocking shaft 55, and the interlocking shaft 55 is an interlocking bearing. The parts 52b and 53b are fitted with a predetermined gap (gap for the relative motion) (that is, loosely fitted). In order to realize the operation described later, the gap between the interlocking bearing portion 53b and the interlocking shaft 55 is larger than the clearance between the interlocking bearing portion 52b and the interlocking shaft 55.
That is, the cross-sectional dimension of the interlocking bearing portion 51b of the first movable member 41 is almost the same size as that of the interlocking shaft 55, and is slightly wider at the interlocking bearing portion 52b of the second movable member 42. Since the bearing portion 53b is further widened, the operations of these three movable members are shifted (details will be described later).
In addition, the interlocking mechanism of each movable member is comprised by the interlocking bearing parts 51b, 52b, and 53b and the interlocking shaft 55. FIG.
次に、駆動機構44について説明する。
図10等に示すように、駆動機構44は、ベース部材39に対して固定状態に取り付けられる駆動機構ベース60と、この駆動機構ベース60上に出力軸を略鉛直下方(前記固定軸54と平行な方向で下向き)に向けて搭載されたモータ61と、このモータ61の出力軸上に直結されて前記出力軸と一体に回転する第1歯車62と、駆動機構ベース60上の略鉛直方向(前記固定軸54と平行な方向)の軸を中心として回転可能(自転可能)に設けられ、第1歯車62と噛み合って第1歯車62に駆動されて自転する第2歯車63と、この第2歯車63の上面外周側から略上方(前記固定軸54と平行な方向)に伸びるように形成された回動軸64と、を備える。
Next, the drive mechanism 44 will be described.
As shown in FIG. 10 and the like, the drive mechanism 44 has a drive mechanism base 60 fixedly attached to the base member 39, and an output shaft on the drive mechanism base 60 substantially vertically downward (parallel to the fixed shaft 54). Motor 61 mounted in a downward direction), a first gear 62 that is directly connected to the output shaft of the motor 61 and rotates integrally with the output shaft, and a substantially vertical direction on the drive mechanism base 60 ( A second gear 63 provided so as to be rotatable (rotatable) about an axis in a direction parallel to the fixed shaft 54, meshed with the first gear 62, driven by the first gear 62 and rotated. A rotating shaft 64 formed so as to extend substantially upward (in a direction parallel to the fixed shaft 54) from the outer peripheral side of the upper surface of the gear 63.
なお、駆動機構44のモータ61等は、図9に示すように、ベース部材39の裏側や装飾レンズ部材45の裏側であって、LED基板47の右側の位置(フルカラーLED49から各可動部材に向けて放射される光を遮断しない位置)に配置されている。
ここで、第2歯車63の歯数は、第1歯車62より少なく設定され、モータ61の出力軸の回転が減速されて第2歯車63に伝達される。
また、第2歯車63と一体に回転する回動軸64は、前記第1腕部51の下側の板状部に形成された長孔51cに係合している。
As shown in FIG. 9, the motor 61 and the like of the drive mechanism 44 are on the back side of the base member 39 and the back side of the decorative lens member 45 and on the right side of the LED board 47 (from the full color LED 49 toward each movable member). At a position that does not block the emitted light).
Here, the number of teeth of the second gear 63 is set to be smaller than that of the first gear 62, and the rotation of the output shaft of the motor 61 is decelerated and transmitted to the second gear 63.
A rotating shaft 64 that rotates integrally with the second gear 63 is engaged with a long hole 51 c formed in a lower plate-like portion of the first arm portion 51.
D.装飾可動部の動作
次に、各可動部材の動作について、説明する。
前記回動軸64と長孔51cの係合によって、回動軸64の回転(即ち、モータ61の回転)に伴い、第1可動部材41が回動し、さらにこの第1可動部材41の動きが、連動軸55を介して他の可動部材(第2可動部材42と第3可動部材43)に伝わり、他の可動部材も連動して回動する。即ち、連動軸55が連動軸受部(長孔)52b,53bの内面に当たって第2可動部材42と第3可動部材43を押すことによって、第1可動部材41の動きを第2可動部材42と第3可動部材43に伝えて第2可動部材42と第3可動部材43を連動させる
D. Next, the operation of each movable member will be described.
Due to the engagement of the rotation shaft 64 and the long hole 51c, the first movable member 41 is rotated along with the rotation of the rotation shaft 64 (that is, the rotation of the motor 61), and the movement of the first movable member 41 is further increased. However, it is transmitted to the other movable members (the second movable member 42 and the third movable member 43) via the interlocking shaft 55, and the other movable members also rotate in conjunction with each other. That is, when the interlocking shaft 55 hits the inner surfaces of the interlocking bearing portions (long holes) 52b and 53b and pushes the second movable member 42 and the third movable member 43, the movement of the first movable member 41 is changed between the second movable member 42 and the second movable member 42. The second movable member 42 and the third movable member 43 are interlocked by transmitting to the third movable member 43.
そして、各可動部材の回動範囲(駆動機構44に駆動されて動く範囲)は、各腕部の形状寸法や、固定軸受部51a,52a,53aと回動軸55の位置関係等の仕様設定によって、図7〜図9に示すように、各可動部材がパチンコ機の略前後方向に動くように設定されている。具体的には、図示省略した制御装置によるモータ61の回転位置制御によって、図7(a),図8(a),図9(a)に示す常態の位置から、図7(b),図8(b),図9(b)に示す作動状態の位置まで、動作する。図7(a),図8(a),図9(a)に示す常態では、各可動部材がほぼ面一(同一曲面上)に位置し、全体として中心部が前面側に凸となるドーム型曲面を構成した状態となる。一方、図7(b),図8(b),図9(b)に示す作動状態では、第1可動部材41、第2可動部材42、第3可動部材43の順番で、より奥側に移動し、各可動部材相互間に相当の隙間が形成された状態(全体的に中心部がより奥側に窪んで、各可動部材相互間に相当の隙間が形成された状態)となる。
ちなみに、図1や図2は各可動部材が上記常態にある場合を、図3は各可動部材が上記作動常態にある場合を、図示している。
The rotation range of each movable member (the range moved by being driven by the drive mechanism 44) is a specification setting such as the shape of each arm and the positional relationship between the fixed bearings 51a, 52a, 53a and the rotation shaft 55. 7 to 9, the movable members are set to move substantially in the front-rear direction of the pachinko machine. Specifically, by controlling the rotational position of the motor 61 by a control device (not shown), the normal position shown in FIGS. 7 (a), 8 (a), and 9 (a) is changed from FIG. 8 (b) and the operation state shown in FIG. 9 (b) is operated. In the normal state shown in FIG. 7A, FIG. 8A, and FIG. 9A, the respective movable members are located substantially flush (on the same curved surface), and the central portion as a whole is convex on the front side. The mold surface is configured. On the other hand, in the operating state shown in FIGS. 7B, 8B, and 9B, the first movable member 41, the second movable member 42, and the third movable member 43 are arranged in the rear side in this order. It moves to a state in which a considerable gap is formed between the movable members (a state in which the central portion is generally recessed further toward the back and a substantial gap is formed between the movable members).
Incidentally, FIG. 1 and FIG. 2 illustrate the case where each movable member is in the above-described normal state, and FIG. 3 illustrates the case where each movable member is in the above-described normal state.
なお、前述した連動軸受部52b,53bと連動軸55の間の隙間の設定によって、回動軸55(即ちモータ61)が各可動部材の上記常態を実現する位置(図9(a)に示す)から上記作動状態を実現する位置(図9(b)に示す)に向かって動き始める時、まず第1可動部材41が動き始め、第1可動部材41が所定の作動量だけ回動した後に連動軸55が連動軸受部52bの内面に当接して第2可動部材42が動き始め、その後さらに第2可動部材42が所定の作動量だけ回動した後に連動軸55が連動軸受部53bの内面に当接して第3可動部材43が動き始める。これにより、回動軸55(即ちモータ61)が各可動部材の上記作動状態を実現する位置(図9(b)に示す)に到達すると、第1可動部材41、第2可動部材42、第3可動部材43の順番で、より奥側に移動した上記作動状態が実現される。
また、上記作動常態から常態に戻る時には、まず第1可動部材41が戻り始め、その後第2可動部材42が戻り始め、さらにその後第3可動部材43が戻り始め、上記常態に戻る。
Note that, by setting the clearance between the interlocking bearing portions 52b and 53b and the interlocking shaft 55 described above, the rotation shaft 55 (that is, the motor 61) realizes the above-described normal state of each movable member (shown in FIG. 9A). ) To the position (shown in FIG. 9B) that realizes the above operating state, first the first movable member 41 starts to move, and after the first movable member 41 rotates by a predetermined operating amount. The interlocking shaft 55 comes into contact with the inner surface of the interlocking bearing portion 52b and the second movable member 42 starts to move. Thereafter, after the second movable member 42 is further rotated by a predetermined operation amount, the interlocking shaft 55 is moved to the inner surface of the interlocking bearing portion 53b. The third movable member 43 starts moving. As a result, when the rotation shaft 55 (that is, the motor 61) reaches the position (shown in FIG. 9B) that realizes the operation state of each movable member, the first movable member 41, the second movable member 42, the second In the order of the three movable members 43, the operation state moved further to the back side is realized.
When returning from the normal operating state to the normal state, first the first movable member 41 starts to return, then the second movable member 42 starts to return, and then the third movable member 43 starts to return to return to the normal state.
また、図示省略した制御装置は、各可動部材が上記作動状態にある時、常に又は場合によっては、LED基板47のフルカラーLED49の一部又は全部を点灯又は点滅させる。これによって、上記作動状態における各可動部材の隙間から、後方のフルカラーLED49の光がまるでサンバースト(雲間からもれる日光)のように前面側へ届き、非常にインパクトのある高い装飾効果が奏される。なお、フルカラーLED49は、各可動部材が上記作動状態に到達する前の時期から、点灯又は点滅させてもよい。   Further, the control device (not shown) lights or blinks a part or all of the full-color LEDs 49 of the LED board 47 at all times or in some cases when each movable member is in the above operating state. As a result, light from the rear full-color LED 49 reaches the front side like a sunburst (sunlight leaking from the clouds) from the gaps between the movable members in the above operating state, and a high decorative effect with a very impact is achieved. The Note that the full-color LED 49 may be lit or blinked from the time before each movable member reaches the operating state.
E.遊技の概要
次に、本形態例のパチンコ機で行われる遊技の概要や遊技の流れについて説明する。
まず、遊技開始当初の時点(或は遊技開始前の時点)では、客待ち状態(デモ中)となっており、表示装置5の画面(表示部6)には客待ち画像(動画又は静止画)が表示される。
ガイドレール2を介して遊技領域3に打込まれた遊技球が、始動入賞口11又は12に入賞すると(即ち、特図の始動入賞があると)、表示部6において特図(ダミー)の変動表示が行われるとともに、対応する本特図の表示器(特図1表示器15又は特図2表示器16)で本特図の変動表示が行われて、変動表示ゲームが実行される。
なお、特図1と特図2の両方の始動記憶が存在する場合には、例えば特図1と特図2の変動表示ゲームが交互に実行されてもよいし、表示部6において、各特図表示用の領域が夫々形成されて、別個独立に表示部6における各特図の変動表示が実行され、特図1と特図2の変動表示ゲームが別個独立に実行されてもよい。また、始動入賞があった順番に特図1又は特図2の変動表示ゲームが実行される態様でもよい。
E. Outline of Game Next, an outline of a game performed in the pachinko machine of the present embodiment and a flow of the game will be described.
First, at the beginning of the game (or before the start of the game), the customer is in a waiting state (during the demonstration), and the customer waiting image (moving image or still image) is displayed on the screen (display unit 6) of the display device 5. ) Is displayed.
When a game ball that has been thrown into the game area 3 through the guide rail 2 wins the start winning opening 11 or 12 (that is, when there is a start winning of a special figure), a special figure (dummy) is displayed on the display unit 6. While the fluctuation display is performed, the fluctuation display of the special figure is performed on the corresponding display of the special figure (the special figure 1 display 15 or the special figure 2 display 16), and the fluctuation display game is executed.
In the case where both of the special memories of FIG. 1 and FIG. 2 exist, for example, the variable display game of FIG. 1 and FIG. 2 may be executed alternately. The display area may be formed separately, and the variable display of each special figure on the display unit 6 may be executed independently, and the variable display game of the special figures 1 and 2 may be executed independently. Moreover, the aspect by which the fluctuation | variation display game of a special figure 1 or a special figure 2 is performed in order with a start winning prize may be sufficient.
そして、見かけ上、この変動表示ゲームの表示部6における特図の停止表示態様(変動表示により導出された特図の組合せ)が特別表示態様(例えば、「3、3、3」などのゾロ目)であれば、大当りと呼ばれる特典が遊技者に付与される。なお制御上は、例えば始動入賞があったことを条件として、大当り乱数の値が抽出記憶されて、この抽出記憶された乱数値と予め設定された判定値とが判定時に比較判定され、この比較判定結果に基づいて、予め大当りとするか否かが決定され、この決定に応じて上記変動表示ゲームが開始される。また、変動表示ゲームの停止表示態様が特定の態様(例えば、「7、7、7」などのゾロ目)であれば、上記大当りになるとともに、大当り遊技後(後述する開放動作後)に、大当りになる確率を高める制御が行われる状態(確率変動状態)となる。
また、上記変動表示ゲームの終了前には、場合によりリーチアクションと呼ばれる特別な演出(例えば、特図の2列分を同じ図柄とし、残りの1列分の図柄をゆっくり変動させる動作)が表示部6において実行される。
And, apparently, the special display stop display mode (a combination of special maps derived by the variable display) in the display unit 6 of this variable display game is a special display mode (for example, “3, 3, 3”, etc.) ), A bonus called jackpot is given to the player. In terms of control, for example, on the condition that there has been a start winning, the value of the big hit random number is extracted and stored, and the random number value that has been extracted and stored is compared and determined at the time of determination. Based on the determination result, whether or not to make a big hit is determined in advance, and the variable display game is started in response to this determination. In addition, if the stop display mode of the variable display game is a specific mode (for example, “7, 7, 7”, etc.), it will be a big hit and after a big hit game (after an opening operation to be described later) It becomes a state (probability fluctuation state) in which control for increasing the probability of winning a big hit is performed.
In addition, before the end of the above-mentioned variation display game, a special effect called reach action (for example, an operation in which two columns of special drawings are made the same pattern and the remaining one column is slowly changed) is displayed on the display unit. 6 is executed.
上記大当り状態になると、変動入賞装置13の大入賞口13aが、規定時間(例えば、30秒)を越えない範囲内において、例えば10個入賞までの期間だけ一時的に開放される開放動作が行われる。そしてこの開放動作は、例えば、15ラウンドまで行われる。また、この大当たり状態では、大当たり状態を演出したり大当たりラウンド数などを遊技者に報知するための大当たり画像の表示が、表示部6で実行される。   When the big hit state is reached, an opening operation is performed in which the big prize opening 13a of the variable prize winning device 13 is temporarily opened for a period up to, for example, ten prizes within a range not exceeding a prescribed time (for example, 30 seconds). Is called. This release operation is performed up to 15 rounds, for example. In this jackpot state, display of the jackpot image for producing the jackpot state or notifying the player of the number of jackpot rounds is executed on the display unit 6.
また、上記特図の変動表示ゲーム中又は大当り中に、始動入賞口11又は12にさらに遊技球が入賞したときには、この場合特図1記憶表示器17又は特図2記憶表示器18で特図始動記憶表示が行われて4個まで記憶され、変動表示ゲーム又は大当りが終了した後に、その記憶(即ち、始動記憶)に基づいて上記特図の変動表示ゲームが繰り返されたり、客待ち状態に戻ったりする。
即ち、何れかの特図の変動表示ゲームが大当たりで終了すれば大当たり状態に移行し、何れかの変動表示ゲームがはずれで終了し何れかの特図の始動記憶があれば再度その始動記憶に応じた変動表示ゲームが実行され、何れかの変動表示ゲームがはずれで終了し始動記憶がなければ客待ち状態に戻り、大当たりが終了して何れかの特図の始動記憶があれば再度その始動記憶に対応した変動表示ゲームが実行され、大当たりが終了して何れの特図についても始動記憶がなければ客待ち状態に戻る流れとなっている。
Further, when a game ball is further won in the start winning opening 11 or 12 during the above-described variation display game or big hit, the special figure memory display 17 or the special figure 2 memory display 18 is used in this case. After the start memory display is performed, up to four are stored, and after the variable display game or jackpot ends, the variable display game of the above-mentioned special figure is repeated based on the memory (that is, the start memory), or a waiting state is entered. Go back.
That is, if any of the special display variation display games ends with a big win, the game shifts to a big hit state. The corresponding variable display game is executed, and if any of the variable display games is finished out of play and there is no start memory, it returns to the customer waiting state, and if the big hit ends and there is a start memory of any special figure, it starts again The variable display game corresponding to the memory is executed, the jackpot is completed, and if there is no start memory for any special figure, the flow returns to the customer waiting state.
なお、以上説明したような遊技の流れにおいて、どの状態において前述の装飾可動部25の動作(常態から作動状態への動作)を実行するかは、特に限定されるものではない。例えば特図が大当りした状態を演出するために、特図の大当り後に前述の装飾可動部25の動作が実行されてもよいし、特図が大当りする可能性を予告するために、特図の大当り前に前述の装飾可動部25の動作が実行されてもよい。或いは、例えば確率変動状態を演出するために、確率変動状態への移行後に前述の装飾可動部25の動作が実行されてもよいし、確率変動状態に移行する可能性を予告するために、確率変動状態への移行前に前述の装飾可動部25の動作が実行されてもよい。或いは、遊技進行上のなんらかの状態(特に認識し難い状態)を報知するために、前述の装飾可動部25の動作を実行してもよい。   In the game flow as described above, it is not particularly limited in which state the operation (the operation from the normal state to the active state) of the decorative movable unit 25 is performed. For example, in order to produce a state where the special figure is a big hit, the operation of the decorative movable unit 25 may be executed after the special figure is a big hit. The operation of the decorative movable unit 25 described above may be executed before a big hit. Alternatively, for example, in order to produce a probability variation state, the above-described operation of the decorative movable unit 25 may be executed after the transition to the probability variation state, or the probability may be changed to notify the possibility of the transition to the probability variation state. The operation of the decorative movable unit 25 described above may be executed before the transition to the changing state. Alternatively, the above-described operation of the decorative movable unit 25 may be executed in order to notify any state (particularly difficult to recognize) during the game progress.
以上説明した本例の遊技機によれば、センターケース10に同芯円状に設けられた楕円形状の複数の可動部材(第1〜第3可動部材41〜43)が前後動するという今までにない斬新な演出を行うことができる。しかも、同芯円状に配置された複数の可動部材が連動して動作するので、前後方向に奥行き感のある演出を行うことができる。さらに、単なる単体の前後動では装飾効果は高まらず、目立たなくなってしまう虞があるが、複数の同芯円状の可動部材が連動して可動するため、奥行き方向の異動でも動きがわかりやすく際だった演出効果が得られる。
また、表示部6での表示内容に絡めて上記可動部材の動作(或いはさらに、発光部であるLED基板47からの光の照射)を行うことで、センターケース10内全てを有効に利用して装飾領域とすることができる。
また、上記可動部材の動作タイミングと表示部6の表示演出、遊技の進行等を同期させる等すれば、通常分かりづらい予告や報知等を確実に遊技者に印象づけることができる効果もある。
また、上記可動部材が前後方向に動くものであるため、本例のように、上記可動部材の動作範囲を遊技球の動きや衝突に絡まない位置に容易に設定でき、可動部材の高い強度(例えば、遊技球の衝突に耐え得る強度)を確保する必要がなく、コスト低減にも貢献できる利点がある。
According to the gaming machine of the present example described above, a plurality of elliptical movable members (first to third movable members 41 to 43) provided concentrically on the center case 10 have moved back and forth until now. It is possible to produce a novel production that is not possible. In addition, since the plurality of movable members arranged concentrically operate in conjunction with each other, it is possible to produce an effect with a sense of depth in the front-rear direction. In addition, simple anteroposterior movement does not enhance the decoration effect and may not stand out. However, since multiple concentric circular movable members move in conjunction with each other, movement in the depth direction is easy to understand. A dramatic effect can be obtained.
In addition, the operation of the movable member (or further, irradiation of light from the LED board 47 that is a light emitting unit) is performed in association with the display content on the display unit 6, so that the entire inside of the center case 10 is effectively used. It can be a decorative area.
Further, if the operation timing of the movable member is synchronized with the display effect on the display unit 6, the progress of the game, etc., there is an effect that it is possible to surely impress the player with a notice or notification that is usually difficult to understand.
Further, since the movable member moves in the front-rear direction, as in this example, the operation range of the movable member can be easily set to a position that does not involve the movement or collision of the game ball, and the high strength ( For example, there is no need to secure a strength enough to withstand a collision of game balls, and there is an advantage that it can contribute to cost reduction.
また本遊技機では、共通の固定軸54によって各可動部材を回動可能に支持して各可動部材の前後動を可能とし、各可動部材を共通の連動軸55により連結することによって連動させ、各可動部材のうちの一つの可動部材である第1可動部材41を回動させる駆動機構44によって、各可動部材の前後動を実現している。
このため、例えば各可動部材を別個に支持して別個に駆動する構成等に比較して、部品点数が格段に少なくて済み、面方向においても無駄なスペースを設ける必要がない。また、1つの駆動源(モータ61)で多くの可動部材に、動作を行わせることができる。
また本遊技機によれば、各可動部材の作動時期や作動量に違いが設けられているため、各可動部材が一様に動く場合に比較して、より躍動感溢れる面白みの有る動きとなり、より演出効果が高まる。
また本遊技機によれば、作動状態における各可動部材相互間の隙間を介して、後方の発光部(LED基板47)からの光を各可動部材の前面側に放射可能である。このため、各可動部材後方からの光がまるでサンバースト(雲間からもれる日光)のように各可動部材の隙間から前面側へ届き、非常にインパクトのある高い装飾効果が奏される。さらにいえば、各可動部材が作動した時の隙間を介し、いちばん後方から照射しているので、より奥行き感のある照明効果が期待できる。
Further, in this gaming machine, each movable member is pivotally supported by a common fixed shaft 54 so that each movable member can be moved back and forth, and each movable member is interlocked by being connected by a common interlocking shaft 55, The movable member 44 is moved back and forth by a drive mechanism 44 that rotates the first movable member 41 that is one of the movable members.
For this reason, for example, compared with the structure etc. which support each movable member separately and drive separately, the number of parts is remarkably small, and it is not necessary to provide a useless space also in a surface direction. In addition, a single drive source (motor 61) can cause many movable members to operate.
Also, according to this gaming machine, since there is a difference in the operation timing and operation amount of each movable member, compared to the case where each movable member moves uniformly, it becomes a more interesting and exciting movement, The production effect is increased.
Further, according to this gaming machine, light from the rear light emitting portion (LED substrate 47) can be emitted to the front side of each movable member through the gap between each movable member in the operating state. For this reason, the light from the rear of each movable member reaches the front side through the gap between each movable member like a sunburst (sunlight leaking from between the clouds), and a highly decorative high impact effect is achieved. Furthermore, since the irradiation is performed from the back through the gap when each movable member is operated, a lighting effect with a sense of depth can be expected.
なお、本発明は上述した形態例に限られず、各種の変形や応用があり得る。
例えば、上記形態例では、楕円形の可動部材を例示したが、円形でもよいし、他の形状(例えば、四角形、星形など)でもよい。また、連動軸が特定可動部材(上記形態例では、第1可動部材41)に一体に形成され、特定可動部材には連動軸受部(上記形態例では、連動軸受部51b)が形成されていない構成でもよい。
また、各可動部材の作動時期や作動量についても、上記形態例の態様に限定されない。例えば、上記形態例では、第1可動部材41の次に第2可動部材42が動き始め、さらにその後第3可動部材43が動き始めるが、第1可動部材41の次に第3可動部材43が動き始め、さらにその後第2稼動部材42が動き始める、といった異なる態様もあり得る。また、作動状態が多段階に設定されていてもよい。
The present invention is not limited to the above-described embodiments, and various modifications and applications are possible.
For example, in the above-described embodiment, an elliptical movable member is illustrated, but a circular shape or other shapes (for example, a square shape, a star shape, etc.) may be used. Further, the interlocking shaft is formed integrally with the specific movable member (in the above embodiment, the first movable member 41), and the interlocking bearing portion (in the above embodiment, the interlocking bearing portion 51b) is not formed on the specific movable member. It may be configured.
Further, the operation timing and operation amount of each movable member are not limited to the above-described embodiment. For example, in the embodiment described above, the second movable member 42 starts to move after the first movable member 41, and then the third movable member 43 starts to move, but the third movable member 43 moves after the first movable member 41. There may be different modes in which the second movement member 42 starts moving after the movement starts. Moreover, the operation state may be set in multiple stages.
また、今回開示された実施の形態はすべての点で例示であって制限的なものではないと考えられるべきである。本発明の範囲は上記した説明ではなくて特許請求の範囲によって示され、特許請求の範囲と均等の意味及び範囲内でのすべての変更が含まれることが意図される。   Further, it should be considered that the embodiment disclosed this time is illustrative and not restrictive in all respects. The scope of the present invention is defined by the terms of the claims, rather than the description above, and is intended to include any modifications within the scope and meaning equivalent to the terms of the claims.
