Description

本発明は、パチンコ機、アレンジボール機等の弾球遊技機に関するものである。   The present invention relates to a ball game machine such as a pachinko machine or an arrangement ball machine.
パチンコ機等の弾球遊技機では、遊技領域の略中央にセンターケースを配置し、そのセンターケースに演出用の液晶ディスプレイを装着したものが多い。近年、この液晶ディスプレイは大画面化の一途を辿っており、これによって遊技領域内で遊技球が自由に動ける領域(以下、遊技球可動領域という)は徐々に小さくなってきている。   In many ball game machines such as pachinko machines, a center case is arranged in the approximate center of the game area, and a liquid crystal display for production is mounted on the center case. In recent years, the liquid crystal display has been increasing in screen size, and as a result, an area in which a game ball can freely move within the game area (hereinafter referred to as a game ball movable area) has gradually become smaller.
特に、液晶ディスプレイが横長であることから、遊技領域の左右両側部、即ちセンターケースの左右両縁部とガイドレールとの間(以下、遊技領域側方部という)は十分な幅を確保できない場合が多い。   In particular, since the liquid crystal display is horizontally long, a sufficient width cannot be secured between the left and right sides of the game area, that is, between the left and right edges of the center case and the guide rail (hereinafter referred to as the side of the game area). There are many.
ところで、遊技球可動領域が狭くなると、当然ながらそこに配置すべき入賞手段やゲート等の配置位置も大きな制約を受けることになる。例えば、遊技領域側方部は、十分な幅が確保できないにも拘わらず、遊技球が遊技領域の下部まで到達するためには必ず通過しなければならない部分であるから、ここには入賞手段ではなくゲートを配置して、検出した遊技球を更に遊技領域の下部側へ案内するように構成することが多い(例えば特許文献1)。
特開2006−006474号公報
By the way, when the game ball movable area becomes narrow, naturally, the arrangement positions of winning means and gates to be arranged there are also greatly restricted. For example, the side area of the game area is a part that must be passed in order for the game ball to reach the lower part of the game area even though a sufficient width cannot be secured. In many cases, a gate is arranged and the detected game ball is further guided to the lower side of the game area (for example, Patent Document 1).
JP 2006-006474 A
このように遊技領域側方部にゲートを配置した場合であっても、遊技球がゲートを通過する確率が極端に高くなることは避けなければならないから、やはりそのゲートの左右両側には遊技球の通過経路を十分に確保する必要がある。   Even when the gate is arranged on the side of the game area in this way, it is necessary to avoid the probability that the game ball will pass through the gate is extremely high. It is necessary to secure a sufficient passage route.
本発明は、このような従来の問題点に鑑み、センターケースの左右両縁部とガイドレールとの間隔が狭い場合であっても、その間に配置したゲートの左右に遊技球の通過経路を確保できる弾球遊技機を提供することを目的とする。   In view of such a conventional problem, the present invention secures a passing path for game balls on the left and right sides of the gate disposed between the left and right edges of the center case and the guide rail even when the distance between the guide rails is narrow. An object is to provide a ball game machine that can be used.
本発明は、ガイドレール14で略取り囲まれた遊技領域12を前面側に有する遊技盤11と、前記遊技領域12に向けて遊技球を発射する発射手段8と、前記遊技領域12の略中央に配置され且つ画像表示手段21を備えたセンターケース15と、該センターケース15の側縁部と前記ガイドレール14との間に配置された通過ゲート16とを備えた弾球遊技機において、前記センターケース15の側縁部に、前記遊技盤11の前面側に沿って配置され且つその前側を遊技球が通過可能な球通過部51と、該球通過部51の下側に配置され且つ上側から流下してきた遊技球を前記通過ゲート16の下側に向けて案内する球案内部52とを備えたものである。   The present invention includes a game board 11 having a game area 12 substantially surrounded by a guide rail 14 on the front side, a launching means 8 for launching a game ball toward the game area 12, and substantially at the center of the game area 12. In the ball game machine comprising the center case 15 disposed and provided with the image display means 21, and the passing gate 16 disposed between the side edge of the center case 15 and the guide rail 14. At the side edge of the case 15, it is arranged along the front side of the game board 11, and a ball passing part 51 through which a game ball can pass through the front side, and a lower side of the ball passing part 51 and from above. A ball guide portion 52 for guiding the game ball flowing down toward the lower side of the passing gate 16 is provided.
本発明によれば、センターケース15の左右両縁部とガイドレール14との間隔が狭い場合であっても、その間に配置した通過ゲート16の左右に遊技球の通過経路を確保できる利点がある。   According to the present invention, even when the distance between the left and right edge portions of the center case 15 and the guide rail 14 is narrow, there is an advantage that a passing path for game balls can be secured on the left and right of the passing gate 16 disposed therebetween. .

The ball guide portion 52 that is arranged below the 51 and guides the game ball flowing down from the upper side toward the lower side of the passage gate 16, and the ball passage portion 51 and the liquid crystal display 21 side are separated so as not to pass the game ball. The left separating wall 53 and the ball guiding means 25 are integrally provided, for example.
球通過部51は、左枠部31に沿って上下方向に配置されており、図3〜図6に示すように、通過ゲート16よりも上側に対応する上通過部54と、通過ゲート16と略同じ高さ位置に設けられ且つ上通過部54の下側に接続される下通過部55とを備えている。   The ball passage portion 51 is arranged in the vertical direction along the left frame portion 31, and as shown in FIGS. 3 to 6, the upper passage portion 54 corresponding to the upper side of the passage gate 16, the passage gate 16, And a lower passage portion 55 provided at substantially the same height and connected to the lower side of the upper passage portion 54.
上通過部54は、例えば遊技球1個分程度の幅に形成されており、その前面側が遊技盤11の前面側よりも若干前側に突出するように配置されると共に、その左側縁部には所定幅のテーパー部54aが設けられている。   The upper passage portion 54 is formed to have a width of about one game ball, for example, and is disposed so that the front side protrudes slightly forward from the front side of the game board 11, and at the left edge thereof A tapered portion 54a having a predetermined width is provided.
下通過部55は、上通過部54よりも左側、即ち通過ゲート16側に若干幅広に形成されており、その前面側は、上端側よりも下端側の方が前側への突出幅が大きい前下がりの傾斜面55aを構成すると共に、その上端側は上通過部54及び遊技盤11の前面側に緩やかに接続されている。   The lower passage portion 55 is formed to be slightly wider on the left side than the upper passage portion 54, that is, on the passage gate 16 side, and the front side of the lower passage portion 55 is a front portion whose front end is larger than the upper end side. The lower inclined surface 55 a is configured, and the upper end side thereof is gently connected to the upper passage portion 54 and the front side of the game board 11.
なお、下通過部55と通過ゲート16との間には遊技球1個分程度の間隔が設けられている。   An interval of about one game ball is provided between the lower passage portion 55 and the passage gate 16.
左隔離壁53は、球通過部51の右縁部に沿って上下方向に配置され、例えば球通過部51の前面側から前向き突出状に一体形成されている。   The left isolation wall 53 is arranged in the vertical direction along the right edge portion of the sphere passage portion 51, and is integrally formed to protrude forward from the front side of the sphere passage portion 51, for example.
また、左隔離壁53上には、球案内部52の上流側(右端側)に対応する位置に、遊技球が通過可能な開口部56が形成されており、その開口部56の上側の左隔離壁53上には、遊技球を球案内部52の下流側、即ち通過ゲート16側に案内する傾斜部53aが一体に設けられている。   An opening 56 through which a game ball can pass is formed on the left isolation wall 53 at a position corresponding to the upstream side (right end side) of the ball guide portion 52. On the isolation wall 53, an inclined portion 53a for guiding the game ball to the downstream side of the ball guide portion 52, that is, the passing gate 16 side, is integrally provided.
球案内部52は、下通過部55の下端側に前向き突出状に形成されており、その上面側が、通過ゲート16側に向けて左下がりの傾斜状に形成されている。また、球案内部52は、その下流端側(左端側)が下通過部55よりも通過ゲート16側に突出している。なお、球案内部52の下流側端部(左端部)と通過ゲート16との間には少なくとも遊技球1個分の隙間が確保されている。   The ball guide portion 52 is formed in a forwardly projecting shape on the lower end side of the lower passage portion 55, and the upper surface side thereof is formed in a slanting shape that is lowered to the left toward the passage gate 16 side. Further, the downstream end side (left end side) of the ball guide portion 52 protrudes closer to the passing gate 16 than the lower passing portion 55. A space for at least one game ball is secured between the downstream end (left end) of the ball guide 52 and the passing gate 16.
球誘導手段25は、球通過部51の上側に遊技盤11の前面側に沿って例えば左上がりの傾斜状に配置され且つその左端側、即ち上流端側に入球口25aが設けられた入球通路部61と、球通過部51の内側(液晶ディスプレイ21側)に沿って遊技盤11の板厚範囲内で上下方向に配置され且つその下端側に上ステージ41上に開口する排出口25bを備えた縦通路部62と、入球通路部61の下流端側と縦通路部62の上流端側を前後に連通させる連絡通路部63とで構成されている。   The ball guiding means 25 is arranged on the upper side of the ball passing portion 51 along the front side of the game board 11 in, for example, an upwardly inclined manner, and a ball entrance 25a is provided on the left end side, that is, the upstream end side. A discharge port 25b that is arranged vertically in the thickness range of the game board 11 along the inner side (liquid crystal display 21 side) of the ball passage portion 61 and the ball passage portion 51 and opens on the upper stage 41 at the lower end side thereof. And a communication passage portion 63 that communicates the downstream end side of the incoming ball passage portion 61 and the upstream end side of the vertical passage portion 62 in the front-rear direction.
また、球誘導手段25内には、流下する遊技球を所定方向に案内するための略三角形状の案内リブ64が1又は複数設けられている。   The ball guiding means 25 is provided with one or a plurality of substantially triangular guide ribs 64 for guiding a flowing game ball in a predetermined direction.
以上のような構成のパチンコ機において、発射手段8により発射された遊技球は、外レール13等に案内されて遊技領域12の上部側に案内され、センターケース15の左右何れか一方に流下する。   In the pachinko machine configured as described above, the game ball launched by the launching unit 8 is guided to the upper side of the game area 12 by the outer rail 13 and the like, and flows down to the left or right of the center case 15. .
センターケース15の左側に流下した遊技球は、センターケース15の側方にさしかかると、入球口25aに入球するか、通過ゲート16又はその左右一側を下向きに通過する。   When the game ball that has flowed down to the left side of the center case 15 reaches the side of the center case 15, the game ball enters the entrance port 25a or passes downward through the passage gate 16 or one of its left and right sides.
入球口25aに入球した遊技球は、球誘導手段25によりステージ手段24上に誘導され、上ステージ41、前ステージ43、下ステージ42上を転動した後、前側に落下する。   The game ball that has entered the entrance 25a is guided onto the stage means 24 by the ball guiding means 25, rolls on the upper stage 41, the front stage 43, and the lower stage 42, and then falls to the front side.
また、通過ゲート16の右側方を通過する際の遊技球の流下ルートは、図3に示すように、通過ゲート16の側方近傍を略まっすぐ下向きに通過する第1のルートと、通過ゲート16から少し離れて球通過部51の前側を下向きに流下した後、球案内部52により通過ゲート16側に案内される第2のルートとに分けられる。   In addition, as shown in FIG. 3, the flow route of the game ball when passing the right side of the pass gate 16 is a first route that passes the vicinity of the side of the pass gate 16 substantially straight downward, and the pass gate 16. The second route is guided to the passing gate 16 side by the ball guiding part 52 after flowing down the front side of the ball passing part 51 downward a little.
ここで、2つの遊技球が略同時に第1,第2のルートを流下した場合、それらは球案内部52の下流側付近で互いに衝突するが、第2のルートを流下した遊技球は、図5(a)に示すように、下通過部55を通過する際に前下がりの傾斜面55aにより前側に案内されるため、両遊技球はその中心が互いに前後にずれた状態で衝突することとなり、球詰まりが発生し難いという利点がある。   Here, when two game balls flow down the first and second routes substantially simultaneously, they collide with each other in the vicinity of the downstream side of the ball guide portion 52, but the game balls flowing down the second route are shown in FIG. As shown in FIG. 5 (a), when the vehicle passes through the lower passage portion 55, it is guided to the front side by the forwardly inclined surface 55a, so that both game balls collide with their centers shifted from each other back and forth. , There is an advantage that ball clogging hardly occurs.
また、球案内部52の上流側には開口部56が設けられているから、球案内部52の下流側で上方からの遊技球に衝突して弾かれた遊技球や、球通過部51から球案内部52上に流下してきた後続の遊技球をこの開口部56から反対側に逃がすことができ、球詰まりが発生する可能性は更に低くなる。   In addition, since the opening 56 is provided on the upstream side of the ball guide unit 52, the game ball hit by hitting the game ball from above on the downstream side of the ball guide unit 52 and the ball passing unit 51. Subsequent game balls that have flowed down onto the ball guide portion 52 can escape to the opposite side from the opening portion 56, and the possibility of occurrence of ball clogging is further reduced.
通過ゲート16又はその左右一側を流下した遊技球は、開閉式入賞手段17、大入賞手段18、普通入賞手段19等に入賞し、又はアウト口から遊技盤11の裏側に回収される。   The game ball that has flowed down the passing gate 16 or one of its left and right sides wins the open / close winning means 17, the big winning means 18, the normal winning means 19, etc., or is collected from the out port to the back side of the game board 11.
以上説明したように、本実施形態のパチンコ機では、センターケース15の側縁部に、遊技盤11の前面側に沿って配置され且つその前側を遊技球が通過可能な球通過部51と、この球通過部51の下側に配置され且つ上側から流下してきた遊技球を通過ゲート16の下側に向けて案内する球案内部52とを備えているため、センターケース15の左右両縁部とガイドレールとの間隔が狭い場合であっても、その間に配置した通過ゲート16の左右に遊技球の通過経路を確保できる利点がある。   As described above, in the pachinko machine according to the present embodiment, the ball passing portion 51 that is disposed along the front side of the game board 11 at the side edge portion of the center case 15 and through which the game ball can pass, Since both the right and left edge portions of the center case 15 are provided with a ball guide portion 52 that is arranged below the ball passage portion 51 and guides the game ball flowing down from the upper side toward the lower side of the passage gate 16. Even if the distance between the guide rail and the guide rail is narrow, there is an advantage that a passing path of the game ball can be secured on the left and right of the passing gate 16 disposed therebetween.
また、球通過部51は、前下がりの傾斜面55aを備えているため、球通過部51の前側を流下する遊技球は、下通過部55を通過する際に前下がりの傾斜面55aにより前側に案内される。従って、その遊技球が、例えば通過ゲート16の側方近傍を略まっすぐ下向きに通過してきた遊技球と衝突した場合、それら両遊技球は中心が互いに前後にずれた状態で衝突することとなるため、傾斜面55aを備えていない場合と比べて球詰まりが発生する可能性は明らかに小さくなる。   In addition, since the ball passage portion 51 includes the front lower inclined surface 55a, the game ball flowing down the front side of the ball passage portion 51 is moved forward by the front lower inclined surface 55a when passing through the lower passage portion 55. Be guided to. Therefore, when the game ball collides with, for example, a game ball that has passed through the vicinity of the side of the passage gate 16 in a substantially straight downward direction, both of the game balls collide with their centers shifted from each other back and forth. As compared with the case where the inclined surface 55a is not provided, the possibility of the ball clogging is clearly reduced.
また、センターケース15には、球通過部51と液晶ディスプレイ21側とを遊技球通過不能に隔離する隔離壁53が設けられ、この隔離壁53上で且つ球案内部52の上流側に対応する位置に、遊技球が通過可能な開口部56を設けているため、球案内部52の下流側で上方からの遊技球に衝突して弾かれた遊技球や、球通過部51から球案内部52上に流下してきた後続の遊技球をこの開口部56から反対側に逃がすことができ、球詰まりが発生する可能性は更に低くなる。   Further, the center case 15 is provided with an isolation wall 53 that isolates the ball passage portion 51 and the liquid crystal display 21 side so as not to pass the game ball, and corresponds to the upstream side of the ball guide portion 52 on the isolation wall 53. Since an opening 56 through which a game ball can pass is provided at a position, a game ball that has been hit by hitting a game ball from above on the downstream side of the ball guide unit 52 or a ball guide unit from the ball passing unit 51 Subsequent game balls that have flowed down on 52 can escape from the opening 56 to the opposite side, and the possibility of ball clogging is further reduced.
なお、以上の実施形態では、ステージ手段24及びそのステージ手段24に遊技球を誘導する球誘導手段25をセンターケース15に設けた例を示したが、それらは必須の構成ではない。   In the above embodiment, an example in which the stage means 24 and the ball guiding means 25 for guiding the game ball to the stage means 24 are provided in the center case 15 has been described, but these are not essential configurations.
通過ゲート16をセンターケース15の右側のみ、又は左右両側に設けたものに本発明を適用する場合も考え方は実施形態の場合と全く同様である。   Even when the present invention is applied to the passage gate 16 provided only on the right side of the center case 15 or on both the left and right sides, the concept is exactly the same as in the embodiment.
また、傾斜面55aの傾斜角や上下方向長さ、球案内部52の傾斜角、開口部56を設けるか否か等については、試作による実験結果等を考慮して個別に選択すればよい。   Further, the inclination angle and the vertical length of the inclined surface 55a, the inclination angle of the ball guide portion 52, whether or not to provide the opening 56, and the like may be individually selected in consideration of experimental results and the like by trial manufacture.
更に、実施形態では本発明をパチンコ機に適用した例を示したが、アレンジボール機等の各種弾球遊技機において同様に実施可能であることは言うまでもない。   Furthermore, in the embodiment, an example in which the present invention is applied to a pachinko machine has been shown, but it goes without saying that the present invention can be similarly applied to various ball game machines such as an arrange ball machine.
