If it is determined that a game ball has entered the start winning opening 2 (YES), the next jackpot lottery is performed (step S2). If it is determined in step S1 that no game ball has entered the start winning opening 2 (NO), the control flow of the main control board 100 is terminated without doing anything.
Next, a later-described variation pattern corresponding to the result of the jackpot lottery in step S2 is selected (step S3), and a later-described stop symbol is selected (step S4). Thereafter, these fluctuation patterns and stop symbols are transmitted to the sub control board 200 (step 5), and the control flow of the main control board 100 is terminated.

In the control flow of the sub control board 200, as shown in FIG. 14, it is first determined whether or not a control signal is received from the main control board 100 (step S11). If it is determined that a control signal has been received from the main control board 100 (YES), an effect selection counter value (described later) is acquired (step S12). If it is determined in step S11 that a control signal has not been received from the main control board 100 (NO), the control flow of the sub control board 200 is terminated without doing anything.
Next, a later-described effect pattern is selected from the variation pattern transmitted from the main control board 100 and the effect selection counter value in step S12 with reference to the table chart of FIG. 17 (step S13). Thereafter, the effect pattern and the stop symbol are transmitted to the display control board 300 (step S14), and the effect pattern is transmitted to the movable body control board 400 (step 15), and the control flow of the sub control board 200 is ended.

On the other hand, in the control flow of the display control board 300, as shown in FIG. 15, it is first determined whether or not a control signal is received from the sub-control board 200 (step S21). If it is determined that a control signal has been received from the sub control board 200 (YES), display is performed according to the selected effect pattern and stop symbol (step S22), and the control flow of the display control board 300 is terminated. If it is determined in step S21 that the control signal has not been received from the sub control board 200 (NO), the control flow of the display control board 300 is terminated without doing anything.
Further, in the control flow of the movable body control board 400, as shown in FIG. 16, it is first determined whether or not a control signal is received from the sub-control board 200 (step S31). If it is determined that the control signal is received from the sub control board 200 (YES), the movable body 8 is moved in accordance with the selected effect pattern (step S32), and the control flow of the movable body control board 400 is ended. Let If it is determined in step S31 that the control signal has not been received from the sub control board 200 (NO), the control flow of the movable body control board 400 is terminated without doing anything.

Next, referring to FIG. 17, it is determined according to the variation pattern, the effect selection counter value, and the effect pattern sent from the main control board 100 and the sub control board 200 to the display control board 300 and the movable body control board 400. The display content of the symbol display screen 9 of the symbol display device 7 and the movement of the movable body 8 will be described. Here, the display content of the symbol display screen 9 and the movement of the movable body 8 are controlled separately and linked to each other in time, but are not controlled separately but controlled by one CPU. May be. Furthermore, although it is a separate control, a link may be established by performing bidirectional communication.
In addition, the downward arrows described in “Display contents + movable body movement” in FIG. 17 indicate fluctuations in three symbol groups (left symbol, middle symbol, right symbol), and “stop” indicates symbol stop. “◎” indicates that the movable body 8 pops out. The effect selection counter value is set in a range of 0 to 99, for example. Further, “reach” means a state in which other symbols are identical except for the remaining symbols that are still changing.

The effect pattern 2-B is determined based on the above, the determined effect pattern and the stop pattern are transmitted to the display control board 300, and the determined effect pattern is transmitted to the movable body control board 400.
When the display control board 300 receives the effect pattern 2-B, the display content corresponding to the effect pattern 2-B is “Start symbol change, stop the left symbol after 3 seconds, and stop the right symbol after 6 seconds. , Stop the middle symbol after 12 seconds "(the number of seconds for which the symbol is stopped is an example), and according to that information, the symbol variation starts first, the left symbol stops after 3 seconds, and then The right symbol is stopped after 6 seconds. At this time, the left symbol and the right symbol are stopped in a matching state. Thereafter, the middle symbol different from the left symbol and the right symbol is stopped after 12 seconds. Since the middle symbol does not match the left symbol and the right symbol, the player is notified as reach lose.
When the movable body control board 400 receives the effect pattern 2-B, the movement corresponding to the effect pattern 2-B is “6 seconds later the movable body 8 jumps out of the symbol display device 7 and 8 seconds later the movable body. Since the movable body 8 does not move until 6 seconds have elapsed, the movable body 8 is stopped and operated as the reversing member when 6 seconds have elapsed. The rod 21 is moved to spread the symbol display device 7. In this way, the player can visually recognize the effect member 10. Then, after 6.5 seconds, the effect member 10 jumps out to the front of the symbol display device 7, and after 7.5 seconds, the effect member 10 is moved to the rear of the symbol display device 7 and stored in the protective cover 11. Next, when 8 seconds have elapsed, the control rod 21 as the reversing member is moved to close the symbol display device 7, and the movable body 8 is moved to perform control to operate to the stop position behind the symbol display device 7. As described above, when the movable body 8 moves forward, the display member 9a of the symbol display device 7 is expanded by the operation of the operation rod 21 as the reversing member of the spreading means 20, and the effect member 10 passes. The passage is secured, and the effect member 10 is controlled to leave the protective cover 11 and jump out of the symbol display device 7 for a predetermined time. The time for the effect member 10 to jump out can be arbitrarily set in the time for moving the movable body 8.

In the same manner as described above, the sub control board 200 determines the effect pattern from the variation pattern received from the main control substrate 100 and the effect selection counter value acquired at the timing when the variation pattern is received, based on the table chart of FIG. Then, the display control board 300 and the movable body control board 400 perform the display control and the movable body control according to the effect pattern determined by the sub-control board 200, so that the movable body 8 moves or the reach loss pattern is displayed after the start of the pattern change. After the stop, the movable body 8 moves and the jackpot symbol combination is displayed, or the movable body 8 moves after the symbol stops due to non-probable change, and the player is caused to stop and display the symbol per probability change. It is possible to notify.
In addition, such display content and the movement of the movable body 8 are based on a part (patterns 1 to 7) of a large number of variation patterns, and are not limited to this, and various symbol variations and stop symbols. The movable body 8 can be moved at various timings. In addition, the movable body 8 can change not only the movement of popping out or retracting but also the distance of movement. The production member 10 jumping out from the movable body 8 can arbitrarily set the jump-out distance and can incorporate other movements such as rotating the production member 10. In addition to the setting of jumping out from the movable body 8, the effect member 10 can also incorporate a setting for keeping the state of not jumping out of the movable body 8. In this case, the effect member 10 can continue to be in the movable body 8, that is, the state in which the protective cover 11 is placed, and can incorporate a setting that gives the player a sense of expectation.

In the pachinko gaming machine according to the embodiment of the present invention, when a game ball is launched on the game board 6 by operation of a launch handle outside the figure and enters the start winning slot 2 shown in FIG. Depending on the production pattern, the movable body 8 that is placed behind the symbol display screen 9 and cannot be seen is expanded by interlocking with the symbol change stop symbol displayed on the symbol display screen 9 of the symbol display device 7. Each display body 9 a is pushed and spread by the operating rod 21 as the reversing member of the means 20, the effect member 10 moves so as to jump out from the symbol display screen 9 to the player side, and appears in front of the symbol display screen 9.
Therefore, according to the pachinko gaming machine of the present embodiment, even if the hidden movable body 8 suddenly emerges from the symbol display screen 9, the player will not miss it, and the movable body 8 with respect to the viewing display screen 9 will not be missed. Unexpected movements will give players a strong impact without getting bored. Therefore, the movement of the movable body 8 and the production member 10 and the display content of the symbol display screen 9 of the symbol display device 7 can provide a large variety of production contents that have a greater impact than a conventional gaming machine equipped with a movable body. Thus, each effect can be further improved. Each display body 9a is pushed and spread by the operating rod 21 as the reversing member of the spreading means 20, and the effect member 10 appears in front of the symbol display screen 9, so that the effect member 10 is caught by the display body 9a and becomes inoperable. There is no fear. Therefore, since the shape of the effect member 10 is not affected, various characters can be employed for the effect member 10.
By the way, in the conventional pachinko gaming machine, since the movable body protrudes from the top, bottom, left and right of the display device, it is necessary to provide a non-game area corresponding to the size of the display device and the size of the movable body. However, in the pachinko gaming machine according to the embodiment of the present invention, since the movable body 8 is arranged on the rear side of the symbol display device 7, the non-game area can be reduced by the area where the movable body is arranged. As a result, the game area can be expanded more than the conventional one.

18 to 20 show another embodiment of the expanding means of the present invention. In this case, the same parts as those in FIGS. 1 to 4 and 10 are denoted by the same reference numerals, and description of the same parts is omitted. The expanding means 30 in FIG. 20 shows an operation rod 31 on the upper side of one side surface, and the left and right operation rods 31 as reversing members are driven in synchronization by a control unit (not shown). .
In this embodiment, the expanding means 30 is configured to be able to bend the operation rod 31 as a reversing member provided at the four corners of the frame 11a so as to protrude forward from the intermediate position to the outside. In this bending operation, each display body 9a of the symbol display screen 9 is opened.
The operation rod 31 configured to be foldable is bent at a right angle or more by a drive mechanism 32. Each operation rod 31 as a reversing member pivotally supports the tip end side 31a ahead of the intermediate portion so as to be rotatable with respect to the rear end portion side 31b, and a linear body 34 on a pin 33 provided on the tip end side 31a. Are connected to each other, and the other end of the linear member 34 is connected to a connecting pin 35 provided in the link mechanism 25 2 of the drive mechanism 22 of FIG.
Also in this embodiment, when the movable body 8 is moved forward, the operation rod 31 as the reversing member of the expanding means 30 pushes and opens each display body 9a of the symbol display screen 9 through the tip. The free ends that are the next of the display body 9a are separated from each other. Thereafter, when the movable body 8 is moved further forward, the spreading means 30 is activated, and the tip end side 31a of each operating rod 31 is spread outside the frame 11a by the drive mechanism 32 as shown in FIG. As shown in FIG. 7, each display body 9 a of the symbol display screen 9 is pushed and widened while being reversed in the vertical and horizontal directions, and is fully opened. Next, as shown in FIG. 8, the motor 12 2 operates to push the rack 13 2 forward, and push the effect member 10 forward to the symbol display screen 9. Then, the effect member 10 jumps out from the frame 11a to the front of the symbol display screen 9 and stops. As a result, the effect member 10 pops out from the protective cover 11, so that the player pays attention to the unexpected movement of the effect member 10, and the player has a sense of expectation such as a jackpot. The configuration of the drive mechanism 32 that operates the operating rod 31 as the reversing member is not limited to the structure of the above-described embodiment. For example, the linear member 34 that bends the distal end portion 31a may be a link or a wire. Moreover, in order to return the front end portion 31a to the original state, a repulsive force can be used by using a coil spring between the front end portion 31a and the rear end portion 31b.

While the embodiments of the present invention have been described above, the present invention is not limited to the above-described embodiments, and various modifications and changes can be made based on the technical idea of the present invention.
For example, in the above-described embodiment, the movable body 8 is disposed on the rear side of the symbol display screen 9 of the symbol display device 7, and the movable body 8 is displayed on each display body 9 a on the symbol display screen 9 at a predetermined production pattern. As shown in FIG. 21, a small display screen 19 is provided at another position separately from the symbol display screen 9 of the symbol display device 7, as shown in FIG. Alternatively, the small movable body 8 may be arranged on the rear side of the display screen 19 so that the small movable body 8 pushes open each display body 19a of the display screen 19 and jumps out to the front of the display screen 19. Although this display screen 19 is small, it is composed of four display bodies 19 a similar to the symbol display screen 9. The display screen 19 may display a notice or display the current game state.
Furthermore, the display body 9a of the symbol display device 7 in the above-described embodiment is moved to the movable body 8, and the movable body 8 is brought into a fixed state so that the display body 9a comes into contact with the movable body 8. Alternatively, the non-fixed portion of the display body 9a may be expanded by the movable body 8 so that the movable body 8 jumps out of the non-fixed portion of the display body 9a. In this case, the drive mechanism that moves the portion where the display body 9a is fixed to the movable body 8 side can be realized by using the mechanism described above.
