  The present invention relates to a medal illegal payout processing system, a medal illegal payout processing method, and a gaming machine suitable for dealing with, for example, illegal medal payout in a hopper device.

  One type of gaming machine is a spinning machine, for example, a slot machine. The slot machine includes a plurality of reels as rotating bodies with a plurality of symbols attached thereto, and each reel starts rotating when a player inserts a medal and operates a start lever. After each reel starts rotating, each reel is sequentially stopped by operating a stop button or elapse of a predetermined time.

  In the slot machine, a lottery is performed on condition that a medal (or coin) is inserted and a start lever is operated, and the lottery result is a win, and a player is placed on a preset active line. A predetermined number of medals are paid out on condition that the winning symbol is stopped, or a special game state (such as a bonus game) advantageous to the player occurs.

  In addition, such a slot machine includes a box-shaped housing having an opening on the front side, and a front door attached to the front side of the housing so as to be openable and closable. It is arranged and used for games with the front door covering the opening. In addition, a power supply device for supplying power to each part of the slot machine is provided inside the casing, and the slot machine is operated by the power supplied from the power supply device.

  Also, in such a slot machine, a sub-control board that mainly performs control related to game effects, a spinning device board that controls the rotation of the reel, and operation signals from the bet button, start lever, and stop button are transferred. A central display substrate and a power supply device substrate that controls power supply to each drive unit and the like, and these substrates are centrally controlled by a main control substrate.

  The main control board also has a ROM (Read Only Memory) in which system programs, programs for slot machine games, and the like are written, and a CPU (Central Processing Unit) that reads out a predetermined program from the ROM and performs predetermined control. In addition, an electronic device such as a RAM (Random Access Memory) that holds the calculation results by the CPU is mounted, and the above-described various substrates are controlled based on a program read from the ROM as the game progresses. It has come to be.

  By the way, in such a slot machine, as described above, a predetermined number of medals are paid out when a special game state (bonus game or the like) advantageous to the player or symbols arranged on each reel is reached. Become. In this case, the rotating disk rotates by driving the hopper motor of the hopper that is the medal payout device, and the medals are paid out from the medal discharge slit provided at a predetermined position of the hopper.

  Here, the medal discharge slit provided at a predetermined position of the hopper is inserted into the medal discharge port provided in the tray unit below the front door. The medal discharge port provided in the tray unit is the only hole that communicates with the inside of the slot machine housing. For this reason, during play, a tool such as a cell or wire is inserted into the medal outlet provided in the tray unit, for example, a predetermined wiring of the hopper motor is short-circuited, and the hopper motor is forcibly driven so that the medal is illegal. May be extracted.

  Normally, the number of medals to be paid out is determined, for example, by detection by a sensor provided in the vicinity of the hopper's medal discharge slit. A tool such as a cell or wire is inserted from the outlet and the sensor is masked, and a fraud may be performed in which it is impossible to detect that the above-mentioned hopper motor is forcibly driven and the medal is illegally removed.

  In order to prevent such injustice, in Patent Document 1, an entry preventing plate is provided that pivots at the upper position of the coin payout opening of the hopper portion and normally closes the coin payout opening by its own weight. Providing a coin payout prevention tool dedicated to coin payout outlets with a mechanism that does not interfere with coin payout and prevents gotten acts due to entering objects such as wires.

  In Patent Document 2, a medal detection signal, a medal replenishment request signal, a medal insertion signal, a medal IN signal, and a medal payout signal are output from the slot machine side, and these five signals are input to the control means in the push button lamp device. The control means manages the number of medals from the number of medals actually issued from the slot machine, the number of medals detected and the number of credits of medals, outputs an abnormality signal when abnormality is detected, displays an abnormality, and requests to supply medals. Proposal of a slot machine automatic supply medal count management system that cuts the medals and stops medal supply.

Further, a hopper motor 620 is attached to the lower surface side of the rotating disk mounting plate 630 by screwing a screw (not shown) inserted into the screw insertion hole of the mounting portion 622 of the plate 621 into the rotating disk mounting plate 630 side. It is like that.

  Four engaging pieces 612 that are engaged with the engaging pieces 612 of the frame body 610 described above are provided on the outer periphery of the rotating disk mounting plate 630 toward the frame body 610 side. A circular accommodating portion 632 that accommodates the rotating disk 640 is provided on the upper surface of the rotating disk mounting plate 630. Further, an insertion hole 632a through which the motor shaft 624 of the hopper motor 620 described above is inserted is provided in the central portion of the housing portion 632.

  The motor shaft 624 of the hopper motor 620 protruding from the insertion hole 632a has a screw insertion hole 633a, and a coil spring 634 is interposed between the rotation support body 633 and the rotation disk 640 for rotating the rotation disk 640. Can be attached. Further, the rotating disk mounting plate 630 is provided with a pair of medal discharge slits 636 that communicate with the conveyance guide members 658 and 659. In FIG. 3, only the medal discharge slit 636 corresponding to the conveyance guide member 658 is shown, but the medal corresponding to the conveyance guide member 659 is also provided on the side facing the medal discharge slit 636 in the same manner as the medal discharge slit 636. A discharge slit (not shown) is provided.

  Further, an urging means 637 is provided in the vicinity of these medal discharge slits 636, and the medals are discharged by the urging means 637 as described below.

  These medal discharge slits 636 are aligned with one medal hole 642 of eight medal holes 642 described later of the rotating disk 640, and the rotating disk 640 is aligned with the rotation of the rotating disk 640. When a medal hole 642 (to be described later) reaches the position of the urging means 637 described above, it is discharged by the urging means 637. As described above, the rotating disk 640 rotates, for example, forward when it receives a command to pay out medals from the main control board 300. At this time, when a medal from one medal hole 642 out of eight medal holes 642 to be described later is released from a medal discharge slit 636 corresponding to the transport guide member 658, the front door 3 is moved by the transport guide member 658. Are transferred to the medal discharge slit 18a and paid out.

  On the other hand, although the main control board 300 has not issued a command to pay out medals, for example, a forced medal payout operation operated at the time of medal management or a predetermined wiring of the hopper motor 620, for example. When there is an illegal act such as short-circuiting, the rotating disk 640 is reversely rotated by reverse driving of the hopper motor 620 by a driving power detection control circuit 431 described later. At this time, when one medal hole 642 out of eight medal holes 642 to be described later reaches the position of the urging means 637 described above, the urging means 637 discharges it to the conveyance guide member 659 and the conveyance thereof. The guide member 659 conveys the medal discharge slit 18 b provided on the back side of the housing 2.

  In this way, for example, even if the hopper motor 620 is forcibly driven and the medal is taken out illegally, the medal is not discharged to the upper tray unit 17 side, so that an illegal act by forcibly driving the hopper motor 620 is prevented. Is done.

  In other words, when the hopper motor 620 is forcibly driven by, for example, a forced medal payout operation operated at the time of medal management or a fraudulent act such as shorting a predetermined wiring of the hopper motor 620, the hopper motor 620 is reversed. Control for driving and rotating the rotating disk 640 in the reverse direction is performed by a driving power detection control circuit 431 described later. In this case, the drive power detection control circuit 431 described later detects, for example, a drive current voltage when the hopper motor 620 is forcibly driven, and the drive power supplied to the hopper device 600 from the power supply substrate 430 described later. Control is performed to reverse the polarity.

  Engagement recesses 635 for engaging engagement pieces 652 (to be described later) of the medal tank 650 are provided at the four corners of the rotary disk mounting plate 630. At the center of the rotating disk 640, there is provided an attachment portion 641 that is attached by a screw that is screwed into the screw hole 624a of the motor shaft 624 of the hopper motor 620 described above.

  The rotating disk 640 is provided with eight medal holes 642 formed at regular intervals in the circumferential direction. These medal holes 642 are formed in a substantially circular shape according to the shape of the medal and are formed so as to penetrate from the front surface to the back surface. That is, when the rotating disk 640 rotates forward or backward, one medal in the medal tank 650 is accommodated in each medal hole 642 of the rotating disk 640, and the medal hole 642 accommodating the medal is the above-described medal discharge slit 636. When the position of the urging means 637 is reached, the urging means 637 discharges to the conveyance guide member 658 or 659 side.

  The medal tank 650 is provided with a plate 651 having an engagement piece 652 that is engaged with the engagement recess 635 of the rotary disk mounting plate 630 described above on the lower surface side. On the upper surface side of the plate 651, a housing portion 653 for housing the rotating disk 640 and the like, and a medal tank body 655 having an overflow port 654 for discharging the medals overflowing from the medal tank 650 to the auxiliary storage portion (not shown) are provided. It has been.

  Here, when the rotating disk 640 of the hopper device 600 is rotated forward, for example, by driving the hopper motor 620 in response to a payout command from the main control board 300, the transport guide member 658 follows the forward rotation of the rotating disk 640. The medals delivered from the medal ejection slit 636 of the rotating disk 640 are conveyed to the medal ejection slit 18a described above. As a medal transport structure of the transport guide member 658, for example, a structure in which a belt or the like having a holding portion such as a hole or an engaging portion for holding a received medal wraps around the transport guide member 658 in the vertical direction. It can be.

  With such a structure, when receiving a payout command from the main control board 300, the rotating disk 640 rotates forward, for example, and the conveyance guide member 658 moves from the medal discharge slit 636 of the rotating disk 640 accordingly. When the received medals are conveyed to the medal discharge slit 18a, a predetermined number of medals are paid out.

  When the medal detection sensor 658a in the opening 658b of the transport guide member 658 detects the number of medals paid out, the driving of the hopper motor 620 of the hopper device 600 by the power supply device substrate 430 is stopped.

  Since the conveyance guide member 658 extends in the vertical direction from the medal tank 650, the conveyance guide member 658 intersects the medal discharge slit 18a for discharging the medal to the above-described upper tray unit 17 at an acute angle, as described above. Even if a cheating jig such as a cell or wire is inserted from the medal discharge slit 18a, the cheating jig such as a cell or wire is not only bent near the opening 658b of the transport guide member 658, but also transported. Since it is difficult to enter the guide member 658, cheating using a cheating tool such as a cell or wire can be prevented.

  On the other hand, the conveyance guide member 659 detects, for example, a drive current voltage when the hopper motor 620 is forcibly driven by a drive power detection control circuit 431 described later when the payout command from the main control board 300 is not received. Then, the hopper motor 620 is reversely driven by the drive power detection control circuit 431, and the medal is conveyed to the medal discharge slit 18b provided on the back side of the housing 2 in accordance with the reverse rotation of the rotating disk 640. Is. As for the medal conveyance structure of the conveyance guide member 659, similarly to the conveyance guide member 658, for example, a belt or the like having a holding portion such as a hole or an engagement portion for holding a received medal passes inside the conveyance guide member 659. A structure that circulates in the vertical direction can be employed.

  With such a structure, when there is an illegal act such that the hopper motor 620 is forcibly driven when a command for paying out from the main control board 300 has not been received, the rotating disk 640 rotates backward, for example, In accordance with this, a medal delivered from a medal ejection slit (not shown) of the rotating disk 640 is conveyed by the conveyance guide member 659 to the medal ejection slit 18 b provided on the back side of the housing 2.

  By rotating the rotating disk 640 in the reverse direction so that medals are conveyed to the medal discharge slit 18b provided on the back side of the housing 2, for example, a cell, a wire, or the like from a gap in the housing 2 For example, a predetermined wiring of the hopper motor 620 of the hopper device 600 is short-circuited, and even if an attempt is made to remove the medal illegally, the medal is not discharged to the upper tray unit 17 side. Unauthorized acts caused by driving are prevented.

  The medal detection sensor 659a in the opening 659b of the transport guide member 659 detects the medals transported by the transport guide member 659, and when the detected medals reach a predetermined number, the hopper device by the power supply device board 430 The driving of a hopper motor 620 described later at 600 is stopped. Thereby, even if the predetermined wiring of the hopper motor 620 continues to be short-circuited, for example, failure of the hopper motor 620 can be prevented by stopping the driving of the hopper motor 620.

  Further, since the medal discharge slit 18b provided on the back side of the housing 2 intersects the conveyance guide member 659 extending in the vertical direction at an acute angle, for example, a cell, a wire, or the like from the medal discharge slit 18b. Even if the cheating jig is inserted, the cheating jig such as a cell or a wire is not only bent near the opening 659b of the transport guide member 659 but also difficult to enter the transport guide member 659. Therefore, cheating using a cheating tool such as a cell or wire can be prevented.

  Further, when the medal detected by the medal detection sensor 659a detects the medal conveyed by the conveyance guide member 659, an improper act caused by forcibly driving a hopper motor 620 described later together with a drive power detection control circuit 431 described later. It can be detected.

  In this case, the main control board 300 receives the detection result by the medal detection sensor 659a or the detection result of the forced driving of the hopper motor 620 by the driving power detection control circuit 431, and instructs the sub control board 400 to perform error processing for the illegal action. Is output. As a result, the sub-control board 400 displays, for example, the content indicating an error on the display unit 101 described above together with the error code, blinking or lighting indicating an error by the effect lamps 104 to 108, or emitting sound. An error sound indicating an error from the sections 109 and 110 is output.

  In this case, the error code displayed on the display unit 101 can confirm that the medal has been illegally extracted, but blinking or lighting indicating an error by the effect lamps 104 to 108 is regarded as normal error processing. That the medals have been illegally extracted, or the error sound indicating the error from the sound emitting units 109 and 110 is output differently from the normal error processing. You can check immediately.

  In such a hopper device 600, medals inserted from the medal insertion unit 6 of the console unit 3C of the front door 3 described above are sorted by the selection mechanism 500 and then accommodated in the medal tank body 655 by the guide member 501. The

  Then, when the power supply device board 430 receives a command to pay out medals from the main control board 300 according to the progress of the game, the hopper motor 620 is driven to rotate the rotating disk 640 (in this case, normal Rotate). At this time, due to the rotation of the rotating disk 640, one medal in the medal tank 650 is accommodated in each medal hole 642 of the rotating disk 640, and the medal hole 642 accommodating the medal is an urging means for the above-described medal discharge slit 636. When the position 637 is reached, the biasing means 637 discharges it toward the conveyance guide member 658 side.

  At this time, when the medal is conveyed to the medal discharge slit 18 a side by the conveyance guide member 658, it is discharged to the upper tray unit 17. Further, when the paid-out medals are detected by the medal detection sensor 658a in the opening 658b of the transport guide member 658, and when a predetermined number of medals are paid out, the hopper device 600 by the power supply substrate 430 will be described later. The driving of the hopper motor 620 is stopped.

  When the medal detection sensor 658a detects that the predetermined number has been reached, a signal indicating completion of payout is sent from the power supply board 430 to the main control board 300.

  The medal detection sensor 658a continues for a predetermined time such that the rotation of the rotating disk 640 is awkward or the number of paid-out medals does not reach a predetermined number because the medal is clogged in the medal hole 642 or the like of the rotating disk 640. Then, the driving of the hopper motor 620 by the power supply device board 430 is stopped, and a signal indicating that an error has occurred in the main control board 300 is sent from the power supply device board 430.

  In this case, normal error processing by the main control board 300 is executed. In this error processing, for example, a signal instructing error processing is output from the main control board 300 to the sub-control board 400. At this time, the sub-control board 400 displays, for example, the content indicating an error on the display unit 101 described above together with an error code, blinking or lighting indicating an error by the effect lamps 104 to 108, or emitting sound. An error sound indicating an error from the sections 109 and 110 is output.

  As described above, the normal medal payout and the normal error processing when the medal payout is not successful are performed.

  FIG. 4 is a block diagram for explaining a control system provided in the slot machine 1. The control system mainly includes a main control board 300, a sub control board 400, a spinning device board 420, a central display control board 410, a power supply board 430, and an external concentration terminal board 440, which are connected by a wiring cable.

  The main control board 300 includes a CPU (Central Processing Unit) 301, a ROM (Read Only Memory) 302 that is a semiconductor memory, a RAM (Random Access Memory) 303, and the like.

  The CPU 301 of the main control board 300 reads a system program stored in the ROM 302, a program for a slot machine game, and the like, and in accordance with the progress of the game, the sub control board 400, the spinning device board 420, the central display control board. 410, distributed control is performed on the power supply device substrate 430 and the like.

  Here, as the main control by the CPU 301, a lottery is performed on condition that a medal is inserted (or a bet by the bet button 7) and the start lever 8 is operated, and the lottery result is a win, and a preset active line is set. The hopper device 600 is controlled through the power supply device board 430 so that a predetermined number of medals are paid out on condition that the winning symbol is stopped by operating the stop buttons 9a, 9b, 9c.

  At this time, driving power from the power supply device 530 is supplied from the power supply substrate 430 to the hopper motor 620 of the hopper device 600, and a predetermined number of medals are paid out by the rotation of the rotating disk 640. When it is detected that the number of medals paid out by the medal detection sensor 658a provided on the hopper device 600 side has reached a predetermined number, the driving of the hopper motor 620 is stopped and the power supply device board 430 is used. A signal indicating the completion of payout is sent to the main control board 300. As a result, the CPU 301 of the main control board 300 can recognize that the payout of medals has been normally performed, and can shift to control in accordance with the progress of the next game.

  In addition, as the main control by the CPU 301, the information of the internal lottery combination is supplied to the sub-control board 400 in accordance with the progress of the game, and the presentation corresponding to the combination is performed using the above-described presentation lamps 104 to 108, side lamps. 5a, 5b, speakers 13a, 14a, 109a, 110a, and the display unit 101.

  The main control by the CPU 301 is to indicate the completion of the payout of medals from the power supply device board 430 even after a predetermined time has elapsed since the power supply device board 430 is instructed to pay out a predetermined number of medals. The normal error processing is executed when the signal cannot be received. That is, on the hopper device 600 side, medals are jammed in the medal hole 642 of the rotating disk 640, etc., and the rotation of the rotating disk 640 is awkward, or the number of medals paid out is detected by the medal detection sensor 658a on the hopper device 600 side. When the predetermined number of sheets has not reached the predetermined number of times, the driving of the hopper motor 620 by the power supply device board 430 is stopped, and a signal indicating that an error has occurred in the main control board 300 is sent from the power supply device board 430. The

  In this case, the CPU 301 of the main control board 300 outputs a signal for instructing normal error processing to the sub control board 400, and the sub control board 400 displays, for example, an error on the display unit 101 described above, for example, an error. Displayed together with the code, blinking or lighting indicating an error by the effect lamps 104 to 108, or outputting an error sound indicating an error from the sound emitting units 109 and 110.

  In addition, as the main control by the CPU 301, the drive current in the hopper motor 620 is driven by the drive power detection control circuit 431 described later even though the power supply device board 430 is not instructed to pay out a predetermined number of medals. When a voltage is detected or a medal is detected by the medal detection sensor 659a, an error process for an illegal act is executed.

  That is, for example, when a predetermined wiring of the hopper motor 620 is short-circuited and the hopper motor 620 is forcibly driven, a drive current voltage to the hopper motor 620 is detected by a drive power detection control circuit 431 described later. At this time, the hopper motor 620 is reversely driven by a driving power detection control circuit 431 described later, the rotating disk 640 rotates reversely, and the medal is provided on the medal discharge slit 18b side provided on the back side of the housing 2 by the conveyance guide member 659. To be transported. At that time, a medal conveyed to the medal discharge slit 18b side is detected by a medal detection sensor 659a provided on the conveyance guide member 659. The operation in which the hopper motor 620 is reversely driven and the rotary disk 640 is reversely rotated is also performed by, for example, a forced medal payout operation that is operated during medal management. Even when the hopper motor 620 is reversely driven and the rotary disk 640 is reversely rotated, the overall control by the main control board 300 is continuously performed.

  Such detection of the drive current voltage in the hopper motor 620 on the hopper device 600 side or detection of the medal by the medal detection sensor 659a is performed, for example, when the medal is illegally extracted, and in this case, the main control is performed. The CPU 301 of the board 300 outputs a signal that instructs the sub-control board 400 to perform error processing for fraud. As a result, the sub-control board 400 displays, for example, the content indicating an error on the display unit 101 described above together with the error code, blinking or lighting indicating an error by the effect lamps 104 to 108, or emitting sound. An error sound indicating an error from the sections 109 and 110 is output. However, for example, when there is a forced medal payout operation operated during medal management, error processing by the main control board 300 is not performed.

  In this case, the error code displayed on the display unit 101 can confirm that the medal has been illegally extracted, but blinking or lighting indicating an error by the effect lamps 104 to 108 is regarded as normal error processing. That the medals have been illegally extracted, or the error sound indicating the error from the sound emitting units 109 and 110 is output differently from the normal error processing. You can check immediately.

  The sub control board 400 is connected to the production lamps 104 to 108, the side lamps 5a and 5b, the speakers 13a, 14a, 109a and 110a, and the display unit 101. Then, the sub control board 400 blinks or lights the above-described effect lamps 104 to 108 or blinks or lights the side lamps 5a and 5b based on the control in accordance with the progress of the game from the CPU 301 of the main control board 300. Or a sound effect is generated from the speakers 13a, 14a, 109a, 110a, or a predetermined effect image or the like is displayed on the display unit 101. Thereby, the effect which appeals to a player's vision and hearing can be performed.

  On the spinning device substrate 420, stepping motors 521b, 522b, and 523b for rotating the main reels 521, 522, and 523 described above and the rotational positions of the main reels 521, 522, and 523 are detected, for example, photosensors 521a, 522a and 523a are connected.

  The spinning device substrate 420 then detects the main reels 521 and 522 based on the information of the detection signals from the photosensors 521a, 522a, and 523a and the number of pulses of the drive pulse signal output to the stepping motors 521b, 522b, and 523b. , 523 are properly controlled for rotation, braking, and stopping.

  Further, the spinning device substrate 420 should be rotated or stopped from the main control substrate 300 to the main reels 521, 522, 523 in accordance with the operation of the start lever 8, the stop buttons 9a, 9b, 9c and the like. Is supplied to the stepping motors 521b, 522b, and 523b while properly detecting the rotational positions of the main reels 521, 522, and 523 while capturing the detection signals from the photosensors 521a, 522a, and 523a. The drive pulse signal is controlled to control the rotation operation of each main reel 521, 522, 523.

  The central display control board 410 is connected to the bet button 7, the start lever 8, and the stop buttons 9a, 9b, 9c described above. The central display control board 410 functions as a relay board that transfers output signals from the bet button 7, start lever 8, and stop buttons 9 a, 9 b, 9 c to the main control board 300. In addition, the central display control board 410 transfers an output signal from a game medal detection sensor (not shown) provided in the selection mechanism 500 to the main control board 300 and informs the number of medals inserted in the medal insertion unit 6 described above. At the same time, it informs the user of foreign matter and clogging.

  Then, the main control board 300 operates the bet button 7 or the medal sensor of the select mechanism 500 to detect the number of bets on the game, and when the start lever 8 is turned on, an instruction to start reel rotation is given. Detect that. Further, when the stop buttons 9a, 9b, and 9c are stopped in any order, it is detected that an instruction to stop the main reels 521, 522, and 523 is given in that order.

  A hopper device 600, a drive power detection control circuit 431, and a power supply device 530 are connected to the power supply device substrate 430. The power supply substrate 430 is formed with a power distribution circuit that distributes various power supply voltages generated by the power supply device 530 to various parts of the hopper device 600 and the like, and supplies system power necessary for the operation of the slot machine 1 from the power distribution circuit. To do. Further, when receiving a command to pay out medals from the main control board 300, the power supply device board 430 controls the hopper device 600 to pay out medals.

  Here, the drive power detection control circuit 431 detects the drive current voltage to the hopper motor 620 when the hopper motor 620 is stopped, for example, when a predetermined wiring of the hopper motor 620 is short-circuited and the hopper motor 620 is forcibly driven. . Further, when the drive power detection control circuit 431 detects the drive current voltage to the hopper motor 620, as described above, the drive power detection control circuit 431 reversely drives the hopper motor 620 and reversely rotates the rotary disk 640.

  In this case, when the power supply device board 430 has not received an instruction to pay out a predetermined number of medals from the main control board 300, the drive power detection control circuit 431 detects the drive current voltage to the hopper motor 620 on the hopper device 600 side. If a medal is detected by the above-described medal detection sensor 659a, an error signal indicating that the medal has been illegally extracted is output to the main control board 300.

  For example, when there is a forced medal payout operation operated during medal management, an error signal is not output to the main control board 300. Here, the drive power detection control circuit 431 is shown as being connected to the power supply device board 430, but the drive power detection control circuit 431 may be incorporated in the power supply device board 430 or on the hopper device 600 side. It may be incorporated, or may be incorporated on the main control board 300 side.

  The external concentrated terminal board 440 is a terminal board for sending a status signal of the slot machine 1 output from the main control board 300 or a signal indicating the progress of the game to a hall computer (not shown).

  Next, an illegal medal payout processing method for the slot machine 1 will be described. In the following, focusing on the case where the main control board 300 issues an instruction to pay out a predetermined number of medals to the power supply apparatus board 430 and the hopper device 600 is driven to pay out a predetermined number of medals. explain.

  First, as shown in FIG. 5, the CPU 301 of the main control board 300 performs a lottery on the condition that a medal is inserted (or bet by the bet button 7) and the start lever 8 is operated, and the lottery result is a win. The power supply device board 430 is controlled so that a predetermined number of medals are paid out on the condition that the winning symbol is stopped by operating the stop buttons 9a, 9b, 9c on a preset active line ( Step S1: yes).

  At this time, drive power from the power supply device 530 is supplied from the power supply device substrate 430 to the hopper motor 620 of the hopper device 600 (step S2), and the rotating disk 640 is rotated (in this case, forward rotation) by the drive of the hopper motor 620. Here, by the rotation of the rotating disk 640, one medal in the medal tank 650 is accommodated in each medal hole 642 of the rotating disk 640, and the medal hole 642 accommodating the medal is the above-described urging means of the medal discharge slit 636. When the position 637 is reached, the urging means 637 discharges it to the transport guide member 658, and the transport guide member 658 transports it to the medal discharge slit 18 a side of the front door 3 and pays it out.

  At this time, the medal detection sensor 658a provided in the opening 658b of the transport guide member 658 detects the number of payouts that is the number of medals toward the medal discharge slit 18a, and detects that the predetermined number has been reached. (Step S3), the driving of the hopper motor 620 by the power supply device substrate 430 is stopped (Step S4).

  When the medal detection sensor 658a detects that the predetermined number has been reached, a signal indicating the completion of payout is sent from the power supply board 430 to the main control board 300 (step S5).

  When the CPU 301 of the main control board 300 receives a signal indicating the completion of the payout, a lottery is performed on condition that the next medal is inserted (or bet by the bet button 7) and the start lever 8 is operated, and the winning is set in advance. When the winning symbol is stopped by operating the stop buttons 9a, 9b, 9c on the activated line, the power supply device board 430 is controlled as described above, so that a predetermined number of medals can be paid out from the hopper device 600. Done.

  Here, in the payout of medals by the hopper device 600, the medals are jammed in the medal hole 642 of the rotary disk 640, etc., and the rotation of the rotary disk 640 is awkward, or the payout of medals does not reach the predetermined number. Is continued for a predetermined time, the driving of the hopper motor 620 by the power supply device board 430 is stopped, and a signal indicating that a normal error has occurred in the main control board 300 is sent from the power supply device board 430 (step S6).

  In this case, normal error processing by the main control board 300 is executed (step S7). In this error processing, for example, a signal instructing error processing is output from the main control board 300 to the sub-control board 400. At this time, the sub-control board 400 displays, for example, the content indicating an error on the display unit 101 described above together with an error code, blinking or lighting indicating an error by the effect lamps 104 to 108, or emitting sound. An error sound indicating an error from the sections 109 and 110 is output.

  When such an error due to clogging of medals occurs, the front door 3 is opened and the hopper device 600 is moved forward along the guide rail 16 attached to the bottom 2b of the housing 2 as described in FIG. By pulling it out to the side, you can check for clogged medals. Here, after the clogging of medals is resolved, for example, by operating a reset button provided on the power supply device 530, the reset process is completed (step S8), and the normal game can be advanced.

  On the other hand, during the normal game, the CPU 301 of the main control board 300 repeats the lottery on the condition that the medal is inserted (or bet by the bet button 7) and the start lever 8 is operated, and the lottery result is displayed. Even if the lottery result is not won, the payout of medals is not instructed unless the winning symbol is stopped by operating the stop buttons 9a, 9b, 9c on the preset active line. (Step S1: no).

  Here, when the instruction for paying out a predetermined number of medals is not issued from the CPU 301 of the main control board 300 to the power supply apparatus board 430 side, the driving power detection control circuit 431 improperly drives the hopper motor 620 on the hopper apparatus 600 side. When the drive current voltage in the hopper motor 620 is detected (step S9: yes), the hopper motor 620 is reversely driven by the drive power detection control circuit 431, and the rotating disk 640 is reversely rotated (step S10). At this time, when the medal from the medal hole 642 of the rotating disk 640 reaches the position of the above-described urging means 637 of the medal discharge slit (not shown), the urging means 637 discharges it to the conveyance guide member 659 and the conveyance guide. By the member 659, it is conveyed to the medal discharge slit 18b provided on the back side of the housing 2.

  In this way, even if the hopper motor 620 is forcibly driven and the medal is taken out illegally, the medal is not discharged to the upper tray unit 17 side, so that an illegal act by forcibly driving the hopper motor 620 is prevented. The At this time, the medal transported by the transport guide member 659 is detected by the medal detection sensor 659a of the opening 659b of the transport guide member 659. When the number of detected medals reaches a predetermined number, the hopper by the power supply substrate 430 is used. The driving of a hopper motor 620 described later of the device 600 is stopped. However, as described above, for example, when there is a forced medal payout operation that is operated in the case of medal management, the rotating disk 640 rotates reversely and the medal is provided on the back side of the housing 2 as described above. It is conveyed to the medal discharge slit 18b side.

  Further, when a medal conveyed by the conveyance guide member 659 is detected by the medal detection sensor 659a, there has been, for example, an illegal act by forcibly driving the hopper motor 620 together with the driving power detection control circuit 431. Can be detected.

  The detection of the driving current voltage by the driving power detection control circuit 431 in the hopper motor 620 on the hopper device 600 side or the detection of the medal by the medal detection sensor 659a is performed, for example, when a medal is illegally extracted. Therefore, an error signal indicating that the medal has been illegally extracted from the power supply device board 430 to the main control board 300 is output. However, as described above, for example, when there is a forced medal payout operation operated during medal management, no error signal is output.

  When the CPU 301 of the main control board 300 receives an error signal indicating that such a medal has been illegally extracted, an error process for an illegal act is executed (step S11). In this case, as in the normal error processing described above, the sub-control board 400 displays, for example, the content indicating an error on the display unit 101 described above together with, for example, an error code, or indicates an error caused by the effect lamps 104 to 108. Blinking or lighting may be performed, or an error sound indicating an error from the sound emitting units 109 and 110 may be output. However, in this case, for example, if an error code indicating that a medal has been illegally extracted is displayed on the display unit 101, the hall staff or the like may indicate that the medal has been illegally extracted from the error code. Judgment can be made immediately.

  In this case, the error code displayed on the display unit 101 can confirm that the medal has been illegally extracted, but blinking or lighting indicating an error by the effect lamps 104 to 108 is regarded as normal error processing. That the medals have been illegally extracted, or the error sound indicating the error from the sound emitting units 109 and 110 is output differently from the normal error processing. You can check immediately.

  As described above, in this embodiment, when a medal payout signal is received from, for example, the main control board 300 as the main control means at the time of paying out the normal medal, the hopper is supplied from the power supply board 430 as the power supply control means. When driving power is supplied to the hopper motor 620 of the apparatus 600, and when a signal for paying out medals from the main control board 300 is detected by the driving power detection control circuit 431 serving as detection control means, the driving power detection control circuit 431 is detected. Accordingly, the rotating disk 640 is rotated in one direction (for example, forward rotation), and the medal from the rotating disk 640 is provided on the front door 3 by the conveyance guide member 658 as the first conveyance guide means in accordance with this. It was conveyed to the medal discharge port 18a which is a discharge port.

  On the other hand, when the hopper motor 620 of the hopper apparatus 600 is driven when there is no medal payout signal from the main control board 300, the driving power detection control circuit 431 rotates the rotating disk 640 in the other direction (for example, reverse rotation). Accordingly, a medal from the rotating disk 640 is conveyed to a medal discharge port 18b which is a second medal discharge port provided on the rear surface side of the housing 2, for example, by a conveyance guide member 659 as a second conveyance guide means. It was made to be.

  Here, as a case where the hopper motor 620 of the hopper device 600 is driven when there is no signal for paying out medals, as described above, for example, a forced medal payout operation operated during medal management, for example, the hopper motor 620 It may be caused by an illegal act such as short-circuiting a predetermined wiring.

  In such a case, all the rotating disks 640 rotate in the other direction (for example, reverse rotation), so that the medals are transported to the medal discharge port 18b provided on the rear surface side of the housing 2, for example. Can be prevented from being paid out from the medal outlet 18a provided in the front door 3.

  As a result, for example, when there is an illegal act such as short-circuiting a predetermined wiring of the hopper motor 620, the medal discharge port 18a provided in the front door 3 is not paid out, thereby preventing unauthorized removal of the medal. Is done.

  On the other hand, for example, even when a forced medal payout operation is performed during medal management, the medal is transported to the medal discharge port 18b provided on the rear surface side of the housing 2, for example. There is no need to perform an operation of transferring the medals into a case or the like.

  Not only slot machines but also other game machines such as pachinko machines, pinball game machines, arrange ball game machines, and ball balls are applicable.
