Description

Game machine

  The present invention relates to a rational mounting technique of a game board in a gaming machine such as a pachinko machine or an arrangement ball.

  An example of a game board mounting technique in a gaming machine is disclosed in Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. 2001-327717. In this disclosed document, after the gaming board of the gaming machine is accommodated in a holding part that is rotatably attached to the attachment frame, the holding part is rotated horizontally toward the attachment frame together with the game board. A technique for fastening to a mounting frame is described.

  The disclosed technique integrates the holding part and the game board by inserting one side edge part of the game board into the holding part, and after rotating the game board to the mounting frame side together with the holding part in that state, By adopting a configuration in which the game board is fixed to the mounting frame via a lock operating means including a stopper member disposed in the front area of the mounting frame, the game board is easily fixed to the mounting frame. However, the front area of the mounting frame is a narrow area between the outer peripheral contour of the mounting frame and the opening for mounting the game board formed immediately inside the upper and sides, and the above is described above for the lower side. It is a narrow area sandwiched between the opening and the upper plate unit. For this reason, in the configuration in which the lock operation means is arranged in the front area of a narrow space, it is difficult to secure a space for arranging the lock operation means, and the lock operation means inevitably has two fingertips. There is still room for improvement in terms of fastening ability or operability. For this reason, development of a technology for reasonably securing the game board to the mounting frame is required.

(First embodiment)
Hereinafter, a gaming machine 201 according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the drawings. In the present embodiment, a pachinko machine is used as the gaming machine 201. As shown in FIGS. 1 and 2, a gaming machine main body 203 is attached to the outer frame 205. The gaming machine main body 203 includes a front frame 211, and an attachment frame 211a for attaching the game board 221 to the back side (back side) of the front frame 211 is integrally formed. The attachment frame 211a may be formed separately from the front frame 211. The mounting frame 211a corresponds to the “mounting frame” in the present invention. Although not shown in the drawings, the front frame 211 is attached with a mechanism plate, a glass door frame, a front plate, and the like, and the gaming machine main body 203 is configured by these. 1 shows the game board 221 in the attach / detach position, and FIG. 2 shows the game board 221 in the stationary position. Among the elements constituting the gaming machine main body 203, the structure of the attachment frame 211a is shown in FIGS. 3 to 6 show a state where the game board 221 is not coupled. The detailed structure of the game board 221 is shown in FIGS. In the following description, left and right and front and rear are directions when the gaming machine is viewed from the front.

  The game board 221 is configured to be attached to the attachment frame 211a from the front side of the front frame 211, and is generally attached by performing the following work. First, as a first step, the operator uses upper and lower mounting pins 227 (see FIG. 7 or FIG. 8) provided on the left edge of the game board 221 and upper and lower pin guide grooves provided on the left edge of the mounting frame 211a. 215 (see FIG. 5 and FIG. 6), respectively, are moved. Thus, the game board 221 is coupled to the attachment frame 211a through the fitting operation of the upper and lower attachment pins 227 and the upper and lower pin guide grooves 215, and is positioned at the game board attachment / detachment position A (see FIG. 1). Next, as a second stage, the game board 221 is horizontally rotated so that the right edge side faces the right edge side of the attachment frame 211a with the attachment pin 227 as a fulcrum. As a result, the game board 221 is moved to the game board attachment position B (see FIG. 2) to be attached within the attachment frame 211a. Next, as a third stage, the game board 221 moved to the game board fastening position B is fastened to the attachment frame 211a via the lock means 251 and 253. By performing the above three steps, the game board 221 is attached to the attachment frame 211a. The left side edge corresponds to “one side edge” in the present invention.

  Next, a mounting structure for realizing the first stage of coupling the game board 221 to the mounting frame 211a and the second stage of rotating the game board 221 to the position to be fastened will be described in detail. As shown in FIGS. 7 and 8, the game board 221 is formed by a game region 223 surrounded by rails whose front surface (front surface) is arranged in a substantially circular shape. It should be noted that illustration and description of the nails, the prize components, the board components such as the gate unit, the display device, and the like to be arranged in the game board area 233 are omitted for convenience. The upper and lower ends of the left side edge portion of the game board 221 are fixed brackets 225 integrally provided with cylindrical mounting pins 227 having an axial direction as the vertical direction as means for attaching the game board 221 to the mounting frame 211a. Is fixed. In the present embodiment, two mounting pins 227 are arranged side by side on the upper and lower fixing brackets 225 at predetermined intervals in the left-right direction.

  On the other hand, as shown in FIGS. 3, 5, and 6, the fixing bracket 213 provided with pin guide grooves 215 for fitting the mounting pins 227 of the game board 221 on the upper and lower portions of the left edge of the mounting frame 211 a. Is fixed. The upper and lower pin guide grooves 215 are formed in the same shape in plan view. As shown in detail in FIG. 6, the pin guide groove 215 has a predetermined inclination angle with respect to the opening 215a for pin fitting formed on the front surface (front surface) side of the mounting frame 211a and the front surface of the mounting frame 211a. It has a linear region 215b for pin guiding that extends linearly toward the left rear side, and a hook-like folded portion 215c formed continuously at the end (back side) of the linear region 215b.

  The hook-shaped folded portion 215c is formed in an arc shape centered on the point X shown in FIG. 17 and constitutes a pin rotating portion that allows the two mounting pins 227 to rotate. In addition, the opening 215a of the pin guide groove 215 has a wide opening wider than the pin guide groove 215 to form a pin guide portion 215d in order to facilitate fitting (entry) of the mounting pin 227.

  Next, the first stage of the operation of attaching the game board 221 to the attachment frame 211a will be described with reference to FIG. When an operator holds the game board 221, the two mounting pins 227 are fitted into the straight region 215b from the opening 215a of the pin guide groove 215 and moved (slid) (see a two-dot chain line in FIG. 17). Until the preceding mounting pin 227 reaches the end (folding point) of the straight region 215b, the two mounting pins 227 are in sliding contact with the straight region 215b at two locations in the front and rear in the moving direction, that is, the rotation. It is moved linearly with its movement restricted. Accordingly, during this time, the game board 221 is moved linearly while maintaining a predetermined inclination angle (inclination angle of the pin guide groove 215) with respect to the attachment frame 211a, and the right edge portion is separated from the attachment frame 211a. It is combined in the state. Thus, the first stage work in the work of attaching the game board 221 is performed, and this state is shown in FIG.

  Next, the second stage of the mounting operation will be described. In the above coupled state, the preceding mounting pin 227 reaches the end (folding point) of the straight region 215b (see the solid line in FIG. 17). At this position, the rotation restriction of the mounting pin 227 is released. Therefore, when the right edge of the game board 221 is pushed toward the right edge of the attachment frame 211a, the preceding attachment pin 227 is moved in an arc shape along the hook-like turn-back portion 215c and reaches the turn-back end portion. . At this time, the subsequent mounting pin 227 moves slightly backward in the straight region 215b from the previous entry position, and both mounting pins 227 straddle the boundary portion 215e formed between the straight region 215b and the folded end. (See the broken line in FIG. 17)

  That is, the two front and rear mounting pins 227 are located opposite to each other across the boundary 215e, and at this position, both mounting pins 227 are in directions other than the rotation return direction (left and right directions and front and rear directions as viewed from the gaming machine body). ) Is restricted. The boundary portion 215e constitutes a “movement restricting portion”. By the movement (rotation) of the two mounting pins 227 as described above, the game board 221 is rotated horizontally around the point X, which is the center of the arc of the folded-back portion 215c, so that the inside of the mounting frame 211a. It is moved to the position to be stopped. Thus, the second stage work in the work of attaching the game board 221 has been performed, and this state is shown in FIG.

  As described above, the game board 221 is coupled to the mounting frame 211a through the fitting operation by the linear movement of the mounting pin 227 and the pin guide groove 215, and in the coupled state, the game board 221 is separated from the mounting frame 211a shown in FIG. Opening / closing rotation (hereinafter simply referred to as rotation) between the game board mounting / demounting position A (hereinafter referred to as game board attachment / detachment position A) and a closed position (hereinafter referred to as game board attachment position B) close to the mounting frame 211a shown in FIG. To do. The game board attaching / detaching position A corresponds to the “first position” in the present invention, and the game board stop position B corresponds to the “second position” in the present invention.

  As described above, in the present embodiment, the game board 221 is coupled to the attachment frame 11 through the fitting operation of the attachment pin 227 and the pin guide groove 215 set between the game board 221 and the attachment frame 211a. It is set as the structure to do. Therefore, after the mounting pin 227 is fitted in the pin guide groove 215 and moved to a predetermined position, the game board 221 is rotated toward the mounting frame 211a to perform a simple operation, whereby the mounting frame 211a of the game board 221 is operated. It is possible to rationally perform the mounting work. In addition, since the game board 221 is attached to the attachment frame 211a via the attachment pins 227 and the pin guide grooves 215, the number of parts can be reduced and the structure can be simplified.

  Further, according to the present embodiment, in the structure in which the game board 221 is coupled to the fitting frame 211 a for fitting the pin guide groove 215 and the mounting pin 227, the mounting pin 227 has the end of the pin guide groove 215. It is configured such that it can be rotated to the game board stop position B only when it is positioned at the position, that is, when it is positioned at the game board attachment / detachment position A, and cannot be rotated during the fitting operation. For this reason, it is possible to avoid the problem that the game board 221 unexpectedly rotates to the attachment frame side 211 and interferes with the attachment frame 211a in the middle of fitting, and the game board 221 is attached to the attachment frame 211a. It can be rotated and fixed to the proper mounting position.

  Next, a description will be given of a fastening structure for realizing the work of fastening the game board 221 rotated to the game board fastening position B to the mounting frame 211a as a third stage. In order to attach the game board 221 to the lower area of the right edge of the mounting frame 211a and the upper area of the right edge as a so-called dead space that is out of the game area 223 of the game board 221, respectively 241 and 251 are provided. Hereinafter, the locking means 241 and 251 will be described.

  As shown in FIGS. 1 and 2, the locking means 241 on the side of the mounting frame 211a includes a lock handle 243 that can be rotated in the left-right direction about a horizontal axis 245 that is orthogonal to the front surface of the mounting frame 211a. Consists of the subject. When the game board 221 is rotated to the mounting position, the lock handle 243 protrudes forward from a lock hole 229 provided in a lower right edge area that is out of the game area 223 of the game board 221. By manually turning the lock handle 243, the hole peripheral portion 229a of the lock hole 229 is detachably engaged with the hole peripheral portion 229a in a state where the hole peripheral portion 229a is pressed toward the mounting frame 211a. The lower edge of the board 221 is fastened.

  On the other hand, as shown in FIGS. 15 and 16, the lock means 251 on the game board 221 side mainly includes a lock handle 253 that can be rotated in the front-rear direction with a horizontal shaft 255 parallel to the game board surface as a rotation fulcrum. Configured. The lock means 251 on the game board 221 side corresponds to the “lock operation means” in claims 1, 1, 2, 16 and 17 of the present invention. The lock handle 253 has a lock portion 253a at the upper end portion and an operation knob 253b at the lower side, and the lock portion 253a from the back side with respect to the locking piece 257 formed on the mounting frame 211a side. The upper edge of the game board 221 is fastened by engaging with pressing urging (relatively pressing the game board 221 toward the mounting frame 211a). This fixed state is configured to be held by the locking claw 253c provided on the operation knob 253b side being locked to the locking portion 221a formed on the game board 221 using elastic deformation. . The locking piece 257 is formed on a metal plate fixed to the mounting frame 211a, and the locking portion 221a is formed on a metal plate fixed to the game board 221.

  Thus, the game board 221 is coupled to the left edge of the mounting frame 211a at the upper and lower positions of the left edge through the fitting operation of the mounting pin 227 and the pin guide groove 215, and the upper and lower edges of the right edge. The two places are attached to the attachment frame 211a by being fastened by the lock handles 243 and 253.

  The lock release by the lock handle 253 is performed by releasing the lock claw 253c from the lock portion 221a and pulling the lock handle 253 forward. 221 can be rotated in a direction away from the attachment frame 211a (see FIG. 15). That is, the lock handle 253 is configured to also serve as a handle for detaching the game board 221, and the operation direction for releasing the attachment is rotated from the game board attachment position B to the game board attachment / detachment position A. A rational configuration that matches the direction to be achieved is realized.

  As described above, in the present embodiment, the lock handle 253 is arranged on the front surface of the game board 221, particularly the arrangement in which the lock handle 253 is arranged using the upper area of the right edge as a dead space that is out of the game area 223. As a result, it is possible to secure a relatively large space as the space for disposing the lock handle 253 as compared with the conventional structure in which the lock handle 253 is disposed. As a result, the lock handle 253 can be formed in a relatively large size to increase the ability of the game board to be attached to the mounting frame, and the operability of the fastening operation or the fastening release operation can be improved.

  Further, in the present embodiment, the operation direction for fixing or releasing the lock handle 253 at or near the game board attachment position B of the game board 221 is the game board attachment position B of the game board 221. Or it is set as the structure substantially corresponded to the pressing or pulling direction for opening and closing in the vicinity. More specifically, the rotation direction of the game board 221 is determined by the pressing direction for the game board attachment position B or the vicinity thereof in the rotation operation of the lock handle 253 for attaching the game board 221. The game board stop position B in the rotation operation of the lock handle 253 for releasing the stop of the game board 221 that substantially coincides with the pressing direction for closing the game board at the game board stop position B or in the vicinity thereof. The pulling direction for releasing the fastening in the vicinity is configured to substantially coincide with the pulling direction for opening in the game board fastening position B or in the vicinity thereof in the turning operation of the gaming board 221. For this reason, it is possible to rationally perform the work of fixing or releasing the game board 221 by the lock handle 253 as a series of continuous work forms in relation to the turning operation of the game board 221. Thereby, workability | operativity of the attachment operation | work of the game board | plate 221 with respect to the attachment frame 211a, or a removal operation | work is improved.

  In the present embodiment, the lock handle 253 and the handle are used together, and the game board 221 is pressed using the handle for opening and closing the game board 221 at or near the game board attachment position B. Alternatively, the pulling direction is configured to substantially coincide with the operation direction of the lock handle 253 that is used to fix or release the game board 221. More specifically, the pressing direction for closing the game board 221 in the rotation operation of the game board 221 by the handle or in the vicinity thereof is the game board attachment position B through the lock handle 253 turning operation. The direction of pulling for the release in the vicinity of the game board attachment position B or in the vicinity thereof in the rotation operation of the game board 221 by the handle is generally the same as the pressing direction for the attachment in the vicinity thereof. It is configured so as to be generally coincident with the pulling direction for releasing the fastening at or near the game board fastening position B in the dynamic operation. As a result, the game board 221 can be attached or removed in a continuous operation without waste. For this reason, workability can be improved. The above handle corresponds to the “handle” in the aspect 4 to aspect 8 of the present invention.

  Next, a connector for connecting an electric device arranged on the game board 221 side and an electric device arranged on the mounting frame 211a side will be described. The game board 221 includes a game board side connector 237a in the upper left side edge region on the back side (see FIG. 8), and a mounting frame side connector 273a corresponding to the upper left side edge region of the mounting frame 211a. (See FIGS. 3 and 5). The game board-side connector 237a and the attachment frame-side connector 273a are configured in a pair of male and female shapes whose engagement / disengagement direction (insertion / removal direction) is substantially the left / right direction, and the operation of connecting the game board 221 described above to the attachment frame 211a (game) (Moving operation to the board attaching / detaching position A) can be engaged in a one-touch manner. In addition, a game board side connector 237b is disposed in the upper right side edge area of the game board 221 (see FIG. 8), and a corresponding attachment frame side connector 273b is provided in the upper right edge area of the mounting frame 211a.

In addition, a horizontal plate 265 is provided on the upper portion of the connector holder 261, and the mounting pin 227 on the upper end side of the game board 221 is fitted into the plate 265 when the game board 221 is coupled to the mounting frame 211a. The pin engaging groove 267 is formed. The plate 265 is disposed in a laminated manner on the lower surface of the fixture 213 in which the pin guide groove 215 described above is formed. The pin engagement groove 267 has a pin fitting opening 267a on the right side and extends linearly in the left-right direction, and the extending direction is parallel to the direction (engagement direction) of the attachment frame side connector 273a. Is set to In a state before the game board 221 is coupled to the mounting frame 211a, the opening 267a is substantially overlapped with the opening 215a of the pin guide groove 215 in the vertical direction by a spring (not shown), and the pin engagement groove 267. Is biased and held at a position where the extending direction of the straight line portion 215b of the pin guide groove 215 intersects the extending direction, that is, the initial position (shown by a solid line in FIG. 19).

  Accordingly, when the attachment pin 227 is fitted into the pin guide groove 215, the attachment pin 227 can be surely fitted into the pin engagement groove 267 as well. Further, the opening 267a of the pin engaging groove 267 has a wide opening wider than the pin engaging groove 267 to form a pin guiding portion 267b in order to facilitate the fitting (entry) of the mounting pin 227. (See FIG. 19).

  On the other hand, the direction (engagement direction) of the game board side connector 237a is set in parallel with the extending direction of the linear region portion 215b of the pin guide groove 215. For this reason, as shown in FIG. 19, when the mounting pin 227 of the game board 221 is fitted into the pin guide groove 215 of the mounting frame 211a in order to couple the game board 221 to the mounting frame 211a, the mounting pin 227 is connected to the connector holder 261. The pin engaging groove 267 is also fitted. When the mounting pin 227 linearly moves in the straight region 215b of the pin guide groove 215, the extending direction of the pin engaging groove 267 in the mounting pin 227 extends in the extending direction of the straight region 215b of the pin guide groove 215. The plate 265 is pressed against the spring force so as to face. As a result, the connector holder 261 is rotated in the horizontal plane with the support shaft 263 as a fulcrum, and the orientation of the connector 273a is corrected (indicated by a two-dot chain line in FIG. 19). The mounting pin 227 constitutes a “pressurizing part”, and the plate 265 having the pin engaging groove 267 constitutes a “pressurized part”. The rotation center is set on the rotation center line (point X shown in FIGS. 17 and 19) of the game board 221 through the support shaft 263 of the connector holder 261.

  Thus, in the present embodiment, the extending direction of the pin engaging groove 267 is the extension of the linear region portion 215b of the pin guide groove 215b while the mounting pin 227 moves on the straight region portion 215b of the pin guide groove 215. By matching with the existing direction, the engagement direction of the attachment frame side connector 237a and the game board side connector 273a is made to coincide, and after the engagement direction matches, the attachment frame side connector 273a and the game board side connector 237a Is engaged.

  When the game board 221 is coupled to the attachment frame 211a or the game board 221 rotates to the game board attachment position B due to the influence of dimensional tolerance or assembly error in the game board 221 and the attachment frame 211a, There may be a case where the game board side connector 237a and the attachment frame side connector 273a, or the game board side connector 237b and the attachment frame side connector 273b are relatively displaced and cannot be engaged well. In order to cope with such a case, the attachment parts of the game board side connectors 237a and 237b to the game board 221 and the attachment parts of the attachment frame side connectors 273a and 273b to the attachment frame 211a are all or part of them. The positional relationship in the up-down direction, the left-right direction, or the front-rear direction with respect to the mounting portion is appropriately shifted, and the position of the connector is appropriately changed upon engagement so that the positional relationship between the connectors can be finely adjusted.

  Such a configuration that enables fine adjustment to the connector mounting portion is a game board-side connector 237a disposed in the upper left side edge region on the back side of the game board 221 and a game board disposed in the upper right edge region. Each of the side connectors 237b is realized. First, the mounting structure of the game board side connector 237a disposed in the upper region of the left side edge of the game board 221 will be described with reference to FIGS. In the present embodiment, a case where two game board side connectors 237a are arranged vertically is shown. A connector holder 275 made of synthetic resin is fixed to the game board 221, and the connector holder 275 includes a pair of upper and lower engaging grooves 275a extending in the front-rear direction. The connector 237a has a rectangular parallelepiped connector main body 237a2 and upper and lower flange portions 237a1 connected to the connector main body 237a2. In the connector 237a, the flange portion 237a1 is inserted into the engagement groove 275a of the connector holder 275 from the back side, and the movement in the left-right direction (connector disengagement direction) in FIG. The movement, that is, the movement in the surface direction is allowed (see FIGS. 9 and 11).

  The connector holder 275 is attached with a connector holding frame portion 277 made of synthetic resin having an inner peripheral shape larger than the outer peripheral shape of the connector main body portion 237a, and the connector main body portion 237a2 is idled in the connector holding frame portion 277. It is fitted in a fitting shape. That is, in the connector 237a, the outer peripheral surface of the connector main body 237a2 has a predetermined gap C1 (see FIG. 10) with respect to the inner peripheral surface of the connector holding frame portion 277. Shift in the front-rear direction (surface direction intersecting with the engagement direction) is possible. Thereby, when the game board side connector 237a and the attachment frame side connector 273a are engaged, the relative displacement between the connectors 237a and 273a is adjusted. The up and down and front and rear directions described above correspond to the “plane direction” in the present invention.

  The connector holding frame portion 277 is attached to the frame attachment portion 275b in a one-touch manner by being inserted from the engaging direction of the connector 237a toward the frame attachment portion 275b formed on the connector holder 275, and at the same time, the connector 237a The connector main body 237a2 is fitted in a loose fit. The connector holding frame portion 277 has a pair of upper and lower locking claws 277a. When the connector holding frame portion 277 is inserted into the frame mounting portion 275b, the upper and lower locking claws 277a are formed in a locking groove 275c formed in the frame mounting portion 275b. It is set as the structure hold | maintained at an insertion position by elastically latching to (refer FIG. 11). The elastic locking by the locking claw 277a and the locking groove 275b corresponds to the “locking by the uneven shape” in the present invention.

  Next, with respect to the game board side connector 237b arranged in the upper right side edge region of the game board 221, the attachment frame side is based on the turning operation of the game board 221 from the game board attachment / detachment position A to the game board attachment position B. An attachment structure of the game board side connector 237b for enabling fine adjustment and correction so that the engagement direction coincides with the connector 273b will be described with reference to FIGS. In this embodiment, a case where two game board side connectors 237b are arranged on the left and right is shown. A connector holder 279 made of synthetic resin is fixed to the back side of the game board 221. The connector holder 279 is integrally provided with a cylindrical connector holding frame portion 279a penetrating in the front-rear direction having an inner peripheral shape larger than the outer peripheral shape of the connector main body portion 237b2 of the connector 237b to be held. The connector main body 237b2 of the connector 237b is inserted into the frame 279a from the front.

  The connector 237b is a state in which the upper and lower flange portions 237b1 are in contact with the upper and lower flange portions 279b of the connector holder 279 from the insertion direction (see FIG. 13). The connector main body 237b2 is prevented from coming off by an elastically deformable locking claw 279c (see FIG. 14) formed in the above. In other words, the connector 237b is restricted in movement in the engagement / disengagement direction (front / rear direction) with respect to the connector holder 279, and in the left / right and up / down directions as the plane direction intersecting the engagement / disengagement direction, the connector holding frame portion 279a. The inner peripheral surface of the connector and the outer peripheral surface of the connector main body 237b2 are movable within a gap C2. Thereby, when the game board side connector 237b and the attachment frame side connector 273b are engaged, the relative displacement between the connectors 237b and 273b is adjusted. The above left and right and up and down directions correspond to the “plane direction” in the present invention. Note that the upper and lower flange portions 279 b of the connector holder 279 are fixed to the back surface of the game board 221 with screws 278.

  By the way, when the connector 237b inserted into the connector holding frame portion 279a is wired so that the electric wire 274 connected to the connector 237b is pulled out to the left side on the back surface of the game board 221, for example, as shown in FIG. It is inclined to the right with respect to the game board surface (see the two-dot chain line in the figure) due to the elastic force resulting from the elastic deflection of the electric wire 274. Such an inclination may become a hindrance when engaging with the attachment frame side connector 273b. Therefore, in this embodiment, an appropriate number of elastic plates 279d (two cases are shown in FIG. 12) that are elastically deformable and that are inclined toward the inner peripheral surface are integrated with the side surface portion of the connector holding frame portion 279a. The side of the connector main body portion 237b2 inserted into the connector holding frame portion 279a is elastically pressurized and biased by the correction plate 279d, so that the connector 237b is directed to the mounting frame side connector 273b. Corrected to approach.

  Note that the engagement between the game board side connector 237b and the attachment frame side connector 273b is performed by the rotation operation of the game board 221. Therefore, in order to smoothly perform the engagement operation, It is preferable to face the left side. Therefore, in the present embodiment, the state where the game board side connector 237b is pressed and biased so as to face the left side in FIG. 14 is indicated by a solid line. The correction plate 279d corresponds to the “biasing means” in the present invention.

  That is, the connector 237b on the right edge side of the game board 221 is corrected in the direction by the correction plate 279d so as to correspond to the attachment frame side connector 273b, and in the vertical direction and the horizontal direction intersecting the engagement / disengagement direction. The movement is held in an allowable state. Thereby, when the game board side connector 237b and the attachment frame side connector 273b are engaged, the relative displacement between the connectors 237b and 273b is adjusted.

  In addition, among the connectors, the game board side connector 237b arranged in the upper area on the right side edge of the game board 221 is substantially the lock handle 253 arranged in the upper area on the right edge of the game board 221 as shown in FIG. It is placed directly behind. Thereby, when the game board 221 and the attachment frame 211a are fixed by the lock handle 253, the mutual pulling force applied to the game board 221 and the attachment frame 211a by the lock handle 253, in other words, the game board 221. Is reasonably transmitted as a force for engaging the game board side connector 137b and the attachment frame side connector 273b with each other.

  Next, an operation of attaching the game board 221 to the gaming machine 201 configured as described above will be described. When attaching the game board 221 to the gaming machine 201, the operator fits the upper and lower attachment pins 227 of the game board 221 into the upper and lower pin guide grooves 215 of the attachment frame 211a, respectively, and moves them along the linear region portion 215b. As a result, the game board 221 is coupled to the mounting frame 211a through the fitting operation of the upper and lower mounting pins 227 and the upper and lower pin guide grooves 215 as described with reference to FIG. To do.

  In this case, in the present embodiment, when the second mounting pin 227 is relatively fitted into the pin guide groove 215, the subsequent linear movement direction is defined. At the time of fitting, it can be fitted from any direction without being restricted by the fitting direction. For this reason, it is effective in improving workability in the initial stage of the fitting operation. Further, the mounting pin 227 can be moved while the lower fixing bracket 225 on the game board side is placed on the upper surface of the fixing bracket 213 on the mounting frame side and the weight of the game board 221 is supported on the mounting frame 211a side. Since it is possible, the connection work with respect to the attachment frame 211a of the game board 221 can be performed easily.

  During the fitting operation of the mounting pin 227 and the upper and lower pin guide grooves 215, the mounting pin 227 is disposed in the pin engaging groove 267 of the connector holder 261 of the mounting frame side connector 273a as described with reference to FIG. The connector holder 261 is rotated in the horizontal plane via the plate 265 while moving in the straight region 215b of the pin guide groove 215, thereby matching the direction of the connector 237a with the direction of the game board side connector 237a. Correct as you do. Thereafter, the attachment frame side connector 273a and the game board side connector 237a are engaged in a one-touch manner until the attachment pin 227 reaches the end of the linear region 215b of the pin guide groove 215. Since the engagement direction of the side connector 273a is corrected, the connector is smoothly engaged. By this engagement, various electrical contacts in the connectors 237a and 273a are connected to each other, and the electrical device on the game board 221 side and the electrical device on the gaming machine main body 203 side are electrically connected to each other.

  Subsequently, the game board 221 is horizontally rotated from the game board attachment / detachment position A to the game board attachment position B. As described with reference to FIG. 17, this horizontal rotation operation is performed by moving the two mounting pins 227 on the hook-shaped folded portion 22 c formed on the back side of the pin guide groove 215, thereby It is done around the point. Thereby, the game board 221 can be easily moved to the game board attachment position B in a state where the weight is supported by the mounting frame 211a.

  When the game board 221 is rotated from the game board attachment / detachment position A to the game board attachment position B, the connector 237b at the upper right edge on the game board 221 side is attached by the rotation operation of the game board 221. The connector 273b on the frame 211a side is engaged in a one-touch manner. As a result, the various electrical contacts in the connectors 237b and 273b are connected to each other, and the electrical device on the gaming board 221 side and the electrical device on the gaming machine main unit 203 side are electrically connected to each other.

  Note that even if there is a relative displacement between the connectors when the connectors 237a and 273a are engaged and when the connectors 237b and 273b are engaged, the game board side connector in the upper left region of the game board 221 is used. As described with reference to 237a and the game board side connector 237b in the upper right region, the positional relationship between the connectors is finely adjusted, so that the positional shift can be absorbed and engaged.

  Thus, the game board 221 is pivotally moved to the game board stop position B. At this time, the lock handle 243 provided in the lower area on the right edge of the mounting frame 211a is below the right edge of the game board 221. It protrudes forward through a lock hole 229 provided in the opposite region. Therefore, the lock handle 243 is rotated, and the hole peripheral portion 229a is pressurized by the lock handle 243. As a result, the game board 221 and the mounting frame 211a are fixed in a state where they are pressed in a direction in which they are in close contact with each other on the lower side of the right edge.

  In addition, when the game board 221 is rotated to the game board stop position B, the lock handle 253 disposed in the upper region on the right edge of the game board 221 has an operation knob 253b side of the game board surface as shown in FIG. The upper locking portion 253a penetrates under the locking piece 257 on the mounting frame 211a side and enters the back surface (back surface) side of the locking piece 257. Therefore, when the operation knob 253b of the lock handle 253 is rotated toward the game board surface, the lock portion 253a pressurizes the back surface of the locking piece 257 toward the front (game board 221 side). As a result, the game board 221 and the mounting frame 211a are fastened on the upper side of the right edge in a state where they are pressed in a direction in which they are in close contact with each other (see FIG. 16).

  When the game board 221 is fixed by the lock handle 253, the connector 137b is disposed almost directly behind the lock handle 253. Therefore, the pressure applied by the lock handle 253 is effective as a force for engaging the connectors 137b and 173b. Will be added. When the game board 221 is fixed, the lock handle 253 is held in the fixed position by the locking claw 253c on the operation knob 252b side being elastically locked to the locking portion 221a on the game board 221 side. Further, when the lock handle 253 is fixed, the lock handle 253 is accommodated in a recess 221 b formed on the front surface (board surface) of the game board 221. For this reason, interference of the lock handle 253 with respect to the glass or glass frame disposed in front of the game board 221 can be avoided.

  Thus, the gaming board 221 is attached to the gaming machine main body 201 side. When the game board 221 is exchanged, the game board 221 can be removed from the gaming machine main body 201 side by following the reverse procedure.

  As described above, in the present embodiment, the connectors 137a and 173a can be engaged in a one-touch manner using the coupling operation of the game board 221 to the mounting frame 211a, and the game board 221 is attached to the game board. Since the connectors 137b and 173b can be engaged in a one-touch manner using the rotation operation to B, the time required for attaching the game board 221 to the attachment frame 211a can be shortened. In this case, the connector 137a that is engaged through the coupling operation to the mounting frame 211a of the game board 221 is configured to be engaged after correcting the engagement direction using the above coupling operation. The operation can be performed appropriately and rationally.

  In the above-described embodiment, the two-pin method is adopted as a mode in which the mounting pin 227 moves linearly while slidingly contacting the straight region 215b of the pin guide groove 215 at two front and rear positions. It is also possible to adopt a mode in which the tip portions of the two are joined to each other, or a mode in which the two mounting pins are joined through a portion whose thickness is thinner than the diameter of the pin in the radial direction.

  In the present embodiment, the mounting pin 227 provided for mounting the game board 221 to the mounting frame 211a is configured to also serve as a means for correcting the orientation of the mounting frame side connector 273a. Although the orientation correction function can be obtained by a number, the means for correcting the orientation of the attachment frame side connector 273a may be configured in a manner independent of the attachment pins 227. In that case, for example, when the game board 221 is coupled to the mounting frame 211a on the game board 221 side, the connector holder 261 that holds the connector 273a is pressed and horizontally rotated so as to correct the orientation of the connector 273a. When the member is set and the game board 221 is rotated from the game board attaching / detaching position A to the game board fastening position B, the connector holder 261 is played by the pressure member or by a member different from the pressure member. Means such as horizontal rotation with the board 221 may be constructed.

  In this embodiment, the game board 221 is connected to the fitting frame 211a for fitting the mounting pin 227 and the pin guide groove 215, and in this embodiment, the mounting pin 227 is provided on the game board 221 side, and the mounting frame 211a side. Although the pin guide groove 215 is provided, it may be reversely arranged, that is, the pin guide groove 215 may be provided on the game board 221 side, and the attachment pin 227 may be provided on the attachment frame 211a side. Or it is good also as a structure which carries out reverse arrangement | positioning by the upper end side and a lower end side, ie, the game board 221 which sets either the attachment pin 227 or the pin guide groove 215 to an upper end side, and sets the other to a lower end side.

  Further, as an attachment mode of the game board 221 to the attachment frame 211a, in addition to the attachment mode according to the above-described embodiment, for example, a holding frame for holding the game board 221 is attached in advance to the left edge portion of the attachment frame 211a. It is possible to change to a mode in which the game board 221 is held by the holding frame and is rotated and attached to the mounting frame 211a side together with the holding frame. In the above-described embodiment, the lock handle 253 disposed on the game board 221 also serves as a handle for rotating the game board 221 between the game board attachment / detachment position A and the game board attachment position B. Although it is configured, the handle may be provided in the game board 221 separately from the lock handle 253.

  Moreover, in the above-mentioned embodiment, although it was set as the structure provided with 2 sets of electrical connectors between the game board 221 and the attachment frame 211a, you may make it 1 set by putting together electrical wiring. The configuration in which the orientation of the connector 273a on the attachment frame side based on the attachment operation of the game board 221 with respect to the attachment frame 211a may be applied to the connector 237a on the game board side, You may apply to the connectors 237b and 273b arrange | positioned at the upper right edge part of the attachment frame 211a. In that case, the connector orientation correcting means is not limited to the structure described in the above-described embodiment, and may be changed to another structure.

(Modification 1)
Next, Modification 1 of the present invention will be described with reference to FIG. The first modification relates to a change in the fitting structure between the mounting pin 227 and the pin guide groove 215 according to the above-described embodiment. A cylindrical mounting pin 327 having an axial direction in the vertical direction is projected from the upper end and the lower end of the left side edge of the game board 221. On the other hand, the fixing bracket 313 fixed to the upper and lower ends of the left edge of the mounting frame 211a has an opening 315a on the front side of the mounting frame 11, and has a predetermined inclination with respect to the front of the mounting frame 211a. A pin guide groove 315 extending substantially linearly toward the left rear side at an angle is formed.

  Further, when the mounting pin 327 is fitted into the pin guide groove 315, the fixing bracket 313 is restricted from rotating around the mounting pin 327 by contacting the back surface of the gaming board 221. A cylindrical stopper 317 is projected. Correspondingly, a notch 331 is formed in a portion facing the stopper 317 when the mounting pin 327 reaches the terminal end of the pin guide groove 315 at the upper end and the lower end of the left side edge of the game board 221. Has been. Note that the stopper 317 and the notch 331 need only be set to at least one of the upper and lower sides.

  The first modification is configured as described above. Therefore, when the mounting pin 327 is moved from the opening 315a of the pin guide groove 315 into the pin guide groove 315 to move the game board 221 to the mounting frame 211a, the back surface of the game board 221 contacts the stopper 317. Thus, the rotation of the game board 221 is restricted. That is, the back surface of the game board 221 is brought into contact with the stopper 317, and the game board 221 is linearly moved to the position where the mounting pin 327 reaches the terminal end of the pin guide groove 315, that is, the game board attachment / detachment position A using the stopper 317 as a guide. Can be moved. When the game board 221 is positioned at the game board attachment / detachment position A, the notch 331 faces the stopper 317, and the rotation restriction of the game board 221 is released. Therefore, the game board 221 can be horizontally rotated from the game board attachment / detachment position A to the game board attachment position B using the attachment pin 327 as a rotation fulcrum, and can be attached to the attachment frame 211a.

  As described above, even with the configuration as in the first modification, after the game board 221 is coupled to the attachment frame 211a by fitting the attachment pin 337 into the pin guide groove 315, the game board 221 is rotated toward the attachment frame 211a. By performing a simple operation such as moving the game board 221, it is possible to rationally attach the game board 221 to the attachment frame 211 a. The stopper 317 restricts the rotation of the game board 221 during the fitting operation, and the interference problem with the mounting frame 211a when the game board 221 is rotated unexpectedly can be avoided.

(Modification 2)
Next, a second modification of the present invention will be described with reference to FIG. The second modification relates to a change in the fitting structure between the mounting pin 227 and the pin guide groove 215 according to the above-described embodiment. In the second modification, the fixing bracket 413 fixed to the upper end and the lower end of the left edge of the mounting frame 211a has an opening 415a on the front side of the mounting frame 211a, and the front of the mounting frame 211a. A pin guide groove 415 extending substantially linearly toward the left rear side at a predetermined inclination angle is formed. A circular portion 415 b having an inner diameter larger than the groove width is formed at the groove end portion of the pin guide groove 415. On the other hand, one mounting pin 427 is provided on the upper and lower ends of the left side edge of the game board 221 so as to project in the vertical direction. The mounting pin 427 is formed in a cylindrical shape having an outer diameter equal to or slightly smaller than the inner diameter of the circular portion 415b of the pin guide groove 415, and is in surface contact with the linearly extending wall surface of the pin guide groove 415. Two flat portions 427a that are in sliding contact are provided.

  The modification example 2 is configured as described above. Therefore, in order to connect the game board 221 to the mounting frame 211a, if the mounting pin 427 is fitted from the opening 315a so that both flat surface portions 427a are in contact with the wall surfaces of the pin guide groove 415, respectively, The rotation of the mounting pin 427 is restricted by the surface contact of the flat surface portion 427a. Therefore, the game board 221 is moved linearly in a state where the rotation is restricted. When the mounting pin 427 reaches the circular portion 415b of the pin guide groove 415, that is, when the game board 221 reaches the game board attaching / detaching position A, the surface contact of the flat portion 427a with respect to the pin guide groove 415 is released, and the mounting pin 427 Rotation within the circular portion 415b is allowed. Therefore, the game board 221 can be horizontally rotated from the game board attachment / detachment position A to the game board attachment position B to be attached to the attachment frame 211a. As described above, according to the second modification, the same operational effects as those of the first modification can be achieved.

  In the modified examples 1 and 2, the mounting pins 327 and 427 are provided on the game board 221 and the pin guide grooves 315 and 415 are provided on the mounting frame 211a. However, these are reversely arranged, that is, the pin guide grooves on the game board 221 side. 315 and 415 may be provided, and the attachment pins 327 and 427 may be provided on the attachment frame 211a side. Alternatively, a configuration in which the upper end side and the lower end side are reversely arranged, that is, one of the mounting pins 327 and 427 or the pin guide grooves 315 and 415 is set on the upper end side of the game board 221 and the other is set on the lower end side. It is good.

(Modification 3)
Next, Modification 3 of the present invention will be described with reference to FIGS.

When the character “OK” is not visually recognized, the game board 131 is not normally attached to the game board support member 151. In this case, the connector 137a on the game board 131 side is not connected. In many cases, it is not correctly connected to the connector 173a on the game board support member 151 side. Therefore, it is possible to confirm the connection status of the connectors arranged on the back side from the machine front side of the gaming machine 101, depending on whether or not the characters “OK” are completely visible. That is, regarding the display means in the gaming machine according to the aspect 26 or 27, not only the normal mounting state of the gaming board is shown, but also the electrical contact between the gaming board and the gaming board support member (or the gaming board and the mounting frame). This is a mode in which the normal wearing state is visible.

  Further, instead of the above-described mode, when the display symbol is divided into two areas of “OK” and “NG”, and an indicator such as a projection serving as an index is provided on the display window 179, and the game board 131 is normally mounted. A mode in which the normal mounting state of the game board is displayed in a meter shape so that the index protrusion indicates “OK”, or the display symbol is divided into a plurality of color arrangement regions such as “red” and “blue”, and the game board 131 is displayed. Any of the modes in which the index protrusions point to the “blue” color arrangement region when the is mounted normally can be suitably employed.

  Further, when the game board 131 is attached to the game board support member 151, the connector 137 a on the game board 131 side engages with the connector 173 a on the game board support member 151 side through the attachment operation of the game board 131.
