特開2001−161905号公報
A pachinko machine, which is a typical gaming machine, has a decorative member disposed at a substantially central position of a game area defined on a board surface of a gaming board set in the machine. A symbol display device such as an expression is faced from the back side of the game board, and the symbol display device is configured to perform a game effect such as a symbol combination game or a reach effect. In addition, in this type of pachinko machine, a light emitting device is arranged on the game board or the decorative member, and in addition to the effect due to the symbol variation in the symbol display device, the light effect by the light emitting device can be performed. Is generally known. As such a light emission effect, for example, as in Patent Document 1, a plurality of light emitters are arranged on the upper edge side of the opening of the decorative member facing the symbol display device, and light is diffused to the front side of the light emitter. There has been proposed a structure in which a filter member in which a plurality of colors are colored in a belt shape is provided, and the light transmitted through the filter member is changed into a plurality of colors by reciprocating the filter member.
JP 2001-161905 A
ここで、発光装置が配設されたパチンコ機では、発光体の発光により電飾効果に優れた演出が期待できるものの、該発光装置の周辺に設けられる部材に対して光の漏れが生じ、当該発光装置の周辺部材の視認性が低下することが懸念される。特に、発光装置の周辺に図柄表示装置が配設された構成では、発光装置からの光が図柄表示装置の表示面に写り込んで、図柄表示装置での図柄変動演出の妨げになる虞があり、結果的に遊技盤全体の視認性の低下を招来することにも繋がってしまう。この場合に、発光装置の光量を低下させれば、発光装置の周辺部材の視認性が低下するのを防止できるものの、発光装置の発光による演出効果の低下を招来する問題が指摘される。   Here, in the pachinko machine in which the light emitting device is arranged, although it is possible to expect an effect with an excellent illumination effect due to light emission of the light emitter, light leakage occurs to the members provided around the light emitting device, There is a concern that the visibility of the peripheral members of the light emitting device may be reduced. In particular, in the configuration in which the symbol display device is arranged around the light emitting device, the light from the light emitting device may be reflected on the display surface of the symbol display device, which may hinder the symbol variation effect on the symbol display device. As a result, the visibility of the entire game board is reduced. In this case, if the light amount of the light emitting device is reduced, it is possible to prevent the visibility of the peripheral members of the light emitting device from being lowered, but there is a problem that causes a reduction in rendering effect due to light emission of the light emitting device.
そこで、本発明は、演出装置周辺に設けた図柄表示装置の視認性を低下することなく発光による演出を行ない得る遊技機を提供することを目的とする。   Accordingly, an object of the present invention is to provide a gaming machine that can perform an effect by light emission without reducing the visibility of a symbol display device provided around the effect device.

It is arranged on the front side of the light emitter substrate (50) to form a gap (S) between the light emitter substrate (50) and rotated on the front side of the light emitter substrate (50) by driving of the driving means (53). Movable body (60),
A cylindrical member (90) surrounding the outer periphery of the movable body (60),
The movable body (60) is connected to and connected to the driving means (53), and is disposed so as to face the front side of the light emitting body substrate (50), and is driven by the driving means (53) to the light emitting body substrate (50). Between the light transmissive member (64) rotating in an opposing state, the lens member (70) disposed on the front side of the light transmissive member (64), and between the light transmissive member (64) and the lens member (70) A light diffusing sheet (74) disposed on the front side of the lens member (70) and fixed to the light transmissive member (64), and the lens member between the light transmissive member (64). (70) and a decorative cover body (76) having an exposed portion (78) where a portion where the lens member (70) and the light diffusing sheet (74) overlap is exposed while sandwiching the light diffusing sheet (74) And consists of
Light from the first light emitter (51) passes through the light transmitting member (64) and the lens member (70) and is diffused by the light diffusion sheet (74) to expose the decorative cover body (76). Light from the second light emitter (52) is radiated forward from the portion (78), and the movable body (60) from the gap (S) between the light emitter substrate (50) and the movable body (60). Irradiated towards the outside of the
The projecting dimension of the peripheral wall portion (91) forward from the light emitter substrate (50) in the cylindrical member (90) is set larger than the separation dimension from the light emitter substrate (50) to the movable body (60). The light from the second light emitter (52) is applied to the peripheral wall portion (91) through the gap (S) between the light emitter substrate (50) and the movable body (60), and the peripheral wall The gist is that the projecting dimension of the portion (91) is configured to increase as it approaches the opening edge of the frame-shaped decorative body (30).
請求項1に係る遊技機では、可動体の外周囲を囲繞する筒状部材における周壁部の発光体基板からの突出寸法を、該発光体基板から可動体までの離間寸法より大きく設定して、発光体基板および可動体間の間隙を介して第2発光体からの光が周壁部に照射されるようにしたことで、該第2発光体からの光を周壁部で遮って図柄表示装置へ照射されるのを防止でき、図柄表示装置の視認性を良好な状態に維持し得る。更に、図柄表示装置に近接するにつれて前記周壁部の突出寸法が増大するように構成したことで、発光体からの光が周壁部で確実に遮られ、発光による演出効果を高めることができる。また、発光体基板の前側に可動体を設けたことで、発光体の発光による演出と可動体の回転による演出との相乗的な演出が可能となる。更に、前記可動体にレンズ部材および光拡散シートを透過した光が前面側に照射されることで、可動体前面の光による装飾性を向上しつつ、発光体基板および可動体間の間隙を介して周壁部に光が照射されることで、可動体の外周囲の光による装飾性を向上し得る。このとき、可動体の外周囲を照明する光は前記筒状部材の周壁部で遮られるから、図柄表示装置の視認性を低下することはない。   In the gaming machine according to claim 1, the projecting dimension of the peripheral wall portion of the cylindrical member surrounding the outer periphery of the movable body is set larger than the separation dimension from the light emitter substrate to the movable body, Since the light from the second light emitter is applied to the peripheral wall through the gap between the light emitter substrate and the movable body, the light from the second light emitter is blocked by the peripheral wall to the symbol display device. Irradiation can be prevented, and the visibility of the symbol display device can be maintained in a good state. Furthermore, since the protrusion dimension of the peripheral wall portion increases as it approaches the symbol display device, light from the light emitter is reliably blocked by the peripheral wall portion, and the effect of light emission can be enhanced. In addition, by providing the movable body on the front side of the light emitter substrate, it is possible to produce a synergistic effect between the effect of light emission of the light emitter and the effect of rotation of the movable body. Furthermore, the light transmitted through the lens member and the light diffusing sheet is irradiated to the front surface of the movable body, thereby improving the decorativeness of the light on the front surface of the movable body, and through the gap between the light emitter substrate and the movable body. By irradiating the peripheral wall with light, the decorativeness by the light around the movable body can be improved. At this time, since the light that illuminates the outer periphery of the movable body is blocked by the peripheral wall portion of the cylindrical member, the visibility of the symbol display device does not deteriorate.
請求項2に係る遊技機は、前記枠状装飾体(30)の内周下縁部には、遊技球が転動可能なステージ(34)が設けられて、該ステージ(34)の側端部に、前記筒状部材(90)の周壁部(91)の一部がステージ(34)より上方に位置する状態で前記演出装置(40)が配設されると共に、該演出装置(40)の外周壁(42a,91)がステージ(34)の前後幅の全長に亘って臨んで、ステージ(34)上を転動する遊技球の筒状部材(90)内への移動を当該周壁部(91)で規制するよう構成されたことを要旨とする。   In the gaming machine according to claim 2, a stage (34) on which a game ball can roll is provided at the inner peripheral lower edge of the frame-shaped decorative body (30), and a side end of the stage (34). The effect device (40) is disposed in a state where a part of the peripheral wall portion (91) of the cylindrical member (90) is located above the stage (34), and the effect device (40) Of the game ball rolling on the stage (34) with the outer peripheral wall (42a, 91) facing the entire length of the front and rear width of the stage (34), and the movement of the game ball into the cylindrical member (90) The gist is that it is configured to be regulated in (91).
請求項2に係る遊技機では、筒状部材の周壁部の一部がステージより上方に位置する状態で演出装置をステージの側端部に配設することで、ステージの端部まで転動した遊技球を演出装置の筒状部材でステージに戻すことができる。すなわち、筒状部材が遮光機能だけでなく、遊技球の戻し機能を具備することで、該筒状部材の汎用性が向上する。そして、筒状部材が遊技球の戻し機能を備えることで、ステージの端部まで転動した遊技球をステージに戻す部材を別途設ける必要がなく、部品点数を減少させて、コストの低減を図り得る。   In the gaming machine according to claim 2, the directing device is disposed at the side end of the stage in a state where a part of the peripheral wall portion of the cylindrical member is positioned above the stage, so that it rolls to the end of the stage. The game ball can be returned to the stage by the cylindrical member of the effect device. That is, since the cylindrical member has not only a light shielding function but also a game ball returning function, the versatility of the cylindrical member is improved. Since the cylindrical member has a function of returning the game ball, there is no need to separately provide a member for returning the game ball rolled to the end of the stage to the stage, thereby reducing the number of parts and reducing the cost. obtain.
請求項3に係る遊技機は、前記筒状部材(90)における前記周壁部(91)の内面側および前記可動体(60)の外側面(79)は、光を反射し得るよう形成されると共に、該周壁部(91)における前記発光体基板(50)からの突出寸法を、該発光体基板(50)から可動体(60)の外側面(79)前端までの寸法以上に設定されて、前記第2発光体(52)からの光を筒状部材(90)の周壁部(91)と可動体(60)の外側面(79)との間で反射させ得るよう構成したことを要旨とする。   In the gaming machine according to claim 3, the inner surface side of the peripheral wall portion (91) and the outer surface (79) of the movable body (60) in the cylindrical member (90) are formed so as to reflect light. In addition, the projecting dimension of the peripheral wall portion (91) from the light emitter substrate (50) is set to be larger than the dimension from the light emitter substrate (50) to the front end of the outer surface (79) of the movable body (60). The gist is that the light from the second light emitter (52) can be reflected between the peripheral wall portion (91) of the cylindrical member (90) and the outer surface (79) of the movable body (60). And
請求項3に係る遊技機では、第2発光体から筒状部材の周壁部に照射された光は、該周壁部と可動体の外側面との間で相互に反射されるから、可動体の外側面での発光による装飾性が一層向上し、発光による高い演出効果を得られる。特に、前記筒状部材の周壁部の内面や可動体の外側面を凹凸形状に形成すれば、周壁部と可動体の外側面との間での光の乱反射により発光による装飾性がより一層高められる。   In the gaming machine according to the third aspect, since the light emitted from the second light emitter to the peripheral wall portion of the cylindrical member is reflected between the peripheral wall portion and the outer surface of the movable body, The decorativeness due to the light emission on the outer surface is further improved, and a high performance effect due to the light emission can be obtained. In particular, if the inner surface of the peripheral wall portion of the cylindrical member and the outer surface of the movable body are formed in a concavo-convex shape, the decorativeness due to light emission is further enhanced by irregular reflection of light between the peripheral wall portion and the outer surface of the movable body. It is done.
請求項4に係る遊技機は、前記遊技盤(20)の前側に遊技領域(20a)を透視可能に保護する透明部材(13a)を備え、前記筒状部材(90)の前端部と透明部材(13a)との間隙(S)を、遊技球の直径より小さく設定したことを要旨とする。   A gaming machine according to claim 4 is provided with a transparent member (13a) for protecting the gaming area (20a) through the front side of the gaming board (20) so that the front end of the tubular member (90) and the transparent member are protected. The gist is that the gap (S) with (13a) is set smaller than the diameter of the game ball.
請求項4に係る遊技機では、遊技盤の遊技領域を透視保護する透明部材と前記筒状部材の前端部との間隙を、遊技球の直径より小さく設定することで、筒状部材の内部に遊技球が進入するのを防止できる。すなわち、筒状部材の内部に遊技球が進入するカバー部材を筒状部材の開口前側に別途設ける必要がないから、部品点数を減少させて、コストの低減を図り得る。また、カバー部材を設ける構成では、カバー部材により発光による装飾性が少なからず影響を受けることになるが、透明部材と筒状部材との間隔により遊技球の進入を規制することで、可動体前面側での発光や可動体外側面側での発光により遊技機前面が直接装飾でき、発光による装飾性の低下を防止することができる。   In the gaming machine according to claim 4, the gap between the transparent member that transparently protects the gaming area of the gaming board and the front end portion of the cylindrical member is set smaller than the diameter of the gaming ball, so that the inside of the cylindrical member is set. A game ball can be prevented from entering. That is, since it is not necessary to separately provide a cover member into which the game ball enters the inside of the cylindrical member on the opening front side of the cylindrical member, the number of parts can be reduced and the cost can be reduced. Further, in the configuration in which the cover member is provided, the decorativeness due to the light emission is not a little affected by the cover member, but by restricting the ingress of the game ball by the interval between the transparent member and the cylindrical member, the front surface of the movable body The front surface of the gaming machine can be directly decorated by the light emission on the side or the light emission on the outer side of the movable body, and the deterioration of the decorativeness due to the light emission can be prevented.

And the protrusion part 73 which protrudes back is formed in the edge part spaced apart from each said 2nd lens part 71, and when the lens member 70 and the light transmissive member 64 are piled up back and forth, Each protrusion 73 abuts on the light transmitting member 64 so that a space is formed between the first lens portion 65 and the second lens portion 71 (light diffusion sheet 74). That is, a distance until the light transmitted through the first lens portion 65 enters the second lens portion 71 (light diffusion sheet 74) is secured, and the lens effect in the first lens portion 65 is enhanced. Here, the light diffusing sheet 74 disposed between the light transmitting member 64 and the lens member 70 is formed in a shape substantially aligned with the back surface of the lens member 70, and the light diffusing sheet 74 forms a lens. The entire back surface of the member 70 is covered. Further, the lens member 70 is formed with a notch portion 72 at a position aligned with the screw insertion hole 68 formed in the light transmission member 64 in the front-rear direction, and the light transmission member 64 and the lens portion 71 are connected to each other. When superposed, the screw insertion hole 68 is configured to be exposed to the front side.

(Decorative cover body)
As shown in FIG. 9, FIG. 10, or FIG. 11, the decorative cover body 76 includes a front plate 77 that covers the front surface of the lens member 70, and an outer surface 79 that extends rearward from the outer periphery of the front plate 77. It is formed so as to open rearward. Each of the light transmitting member 64, the lens member 70, and the light diffusion sheet 74 is accommodated in a decorative cover body 76 surrounded by the front plate 77 and the outer surface 79. The front plate 77 of the decorative cover body 76 is formed so as to swell in a spherical shape with substantially the same curvature as the lens member 70, and corresponds to each second lens portion 71 provided on the lens member 70. Thus, five exposed window portions (exposed portions) 78 opening in the front-rear direction are formed. That is, when the lens member 70 is brought into contact with the back side of the front plate 77 of the decorative cover body 76, the second lens portion 71 faces each exposed window portion 78.
また、前記装飾カバー体76には、前記レンズ部材70の各切欠き部72と対応する位置に、該切欠き部72と嵌合する位置決めボス(図示せず)が後方へ突出するよう形成されており、該位置決めボスが対応の切欠き部72に嵌合することで、装飾カバー体76に対してレンズ部材70および光拡散シート74の夫々が位置決めされる。そして、前記光透過部材64のネジ挿通孔68に挿通したネジを各位置決めボスの後端部に形成したネジ孔(図示せず)に螺挿することで、光透過部材64と装飾カバー体76とが固定される。すなわち、前記光透過部材64を装飾カバー体76にネジ止めすることで、該光透過部材64と装飾カバー体76との間に配置された前記レンズ部材70および光拡散シート74が狭持固定されて、可動体60を単一部品として取り扱い得るようになっている。   The decorative cover body 76 is formed with positioning bosses (not shown) that fit into the notches 72 at positions corresponding to the notches 72 of the lens member 70 so as to protrude rearward. The lens boss 70 and the light diffusion sheet 74 are positioned with respect to the decorative cover body 76 by fitting the positioning bosses into the corresponding notches 72. Then, by inserting the screw inserted into the screw insertion hole 68 of the light transmitting member 64 into a screw hole (not shown) formed at the rear end portion of each positioning boss, the light transmitting member 64 and the decorative cover body 76 are inserted. And are fixed. That is, by screwing the light transmitting member 64 to the decorative cover body 76, the lens member 70 and the light diffusion sheet 74 disposed between the light transmitting member 64 and the decorative cover body 76 are nipped and fixed. Thus, the movable body 60 can be handled as a single component.
また、前記装飾カバー体76の外側面79は、前記光透過部材64の後端部まで延出するよう形成されて、該装飾カバー体76に固定された光透過部材64、レンズ部材70および光拡散シート74の夫々の外周面を被覆している。すなわち、可動体60の全体として、前記LED基板50との間に間隙Sが画成されている。すなわち、前記第1LED51からの光は、前記光透過部材64の第1レンズ部65を透過して前記光拡散シート74で拡散され、更に前記レンズ部材70の第2レンズ部71を透過して前記装飾カバー体76の露出窓部78から遊技者側(前面側)へ照射されると共に、前記第2LED52からの光は、前記LED基板50および可動体60の間の間隙Sから可動体60の外方へ向けて照射されるようになっている。また、前記装飾カバー体76の外側面79は、曲面や凹凸部を有する立体形状に形成されると共に全面に光反射処理がなされている。実施例では、光反射処理として、装飾カバー体76の外側面79に金属メッキを施してある。   Further, the outer surface 79 of the decorative cover body 76 is formed to extend to the rear end of the light transmitting member 64, and the light transmitting member 64, the lens member 70 and the light fixed to the decorative cover body 76. The outer peripheral surface of each of the diffusion sheets 74 is covered. That is, a gap S is defined between the movable body 60 and the LED substrate 50 as a whole. That is, the light from the first LED 51 passes through the first lens portion 65 of the light transmitting member 64 and is diffused by the light diffusion sheet 74, and further passes through the second lens portion 71 of the lens member 70 and passes through the second lens portion 71. The exposure window 78 of the decorative cover body 76 is irradiated to the player side (front side), and the light from the second LED 52 is outside the movable body 60 from the gap S between the LED substrate 50 and the movable body 60. It comes to be irradiated towards the direction. Further, the outer side surface 79 of the decorative cover body 76 is formed into a three-dimensional shape having a curved surface and a concavo-convex portion and is subjected to light reflection processing on the entire surface. In the embodiment, the outer surface 79 of the decorative cover body 76 is subjected to metal plating as the light reflection process.
(筒状部材について)
図5、図6、図8または図11に示すように、前記筒状部材90は、前記可動体60(装飾カバー体76)の外周囲を囲繞し、回転演出装置40の外周壁の一部を構成する筒状の周壁部91と、該周壁部91の後端部に設けられた底面板92とから構成される。そして、前記底面板92の裏面には、前記ベース部材41(本体部42)に形成した前記各位置決め部42bに嵌合する固定突部(図示せず)が後方へ向けて突出するよう形成されており、各固定突部を位置決め部に嵌合した状態で、ベース部材41と筒状部材90とがネジ止めされる。このとき、前記ベース部材41の本体部42に形成した支持壁42aの前端部に前記筒状部材90の底面板92が当接して支持される。また、前記底面板92の略中心位置には、前記LED基板50の外郭形状に略整合する円形の開口部92aが開設されている。そして、前記ベース部材41と筒状部材90とを固定した状態で、図7(b)または図11に示すように、前記底面板92に形成した開口部92aにLED基板50が臨んで、該底面板92の前面とLED基板50の前面とが略同一平面上に位置するようになっている。すなわち、前記筒状部材90における周壁部91の内側に、前記LED基板50に設置された第1および第2LED51,52が位置して、第2LED52からの光が前記可動体60とLED基板50(底面板92)との間の間隙Sを介して周壁部91に照射されるようになっている。
(About tubular members)
As shown in FIG. 5, FIG. 6, FIG. 8 or FIG. 11, the cylindrical member 90 surrounds the outer periphery of the movable body 60 (decorative cover body 76) and is a part of the outer peripheral wall of the rotation effect device 40. And a bottom plate 92 provided at the rear end of the peripheral wall 91. Then, on the back surface of the bottom plate 92, fixed protrusions (not shown) that fit into the positioning portions 42b formed on the base member 41 (main body portion 42) are formed so as to protrude rearward. The base member 41 and the cylindrical member 90 are screwed in a state where each fixed protrusion is fitted to the positioning portion. At this time, the bottom plate 92 of the cylindrical member 90 is supported in contact with the front end portion of the support wall 42 a formed on the main body 42 of the base member 41. In addition, a circular opening 92 a that substantially matches the outer shape of the LED substrate 50 is formed at a substantially central position of the bottom plate 92. And in the state which fixed the said base member 41 and the cylindrical member 90, as shown in FIG.7 (b) or FIG. 11, the LED board 50 faces the opening part 92a formed in the said bottom face board 92, and this The front surface of the bottom plate 92 and the front surface of the LED substrate 50 are positioned on substantially the same plane. That is, the first and second LEDs 51 and 52 installed on the LED substrate 50 are positioned inside the peripheral wall portion 91 of the cylindrical member 90, and light from the second LED 52 is transmitted to the movable body 60 and the LED substrate 50 ( The peripheral wall portion 91 is irradiated through a gap S between the bottom plate 92).
ここで、前記周壁部91の開口前端は、円筒体を斜めに切断した傾斜状に形成されており、該周壁部91における前記底面板92から開口端までの長さ寸法L(底面板92からの突出寸法)が連続的に変化するよう形成されている。そして、前記回転演出装置40を枠状装飾体30に配設した状態では、図11または図12に示すように、前記周壁部91の開口前端面が前記前枠13の透明保護板13aと略平行になるよう構成される。このとき、前記回転演出装置40は、前記枠状装飾体30の開口部31(ステージ34)に近接するにつれて前記周壁部91の前方への突出寸法が増大する傾斜姿勢で配設される。換言すると、前記筒状部材90の底面板92(LED基板50)は、鉛直面をなすと共に、ステージ34側の端部(左端部)が前記図柄表示装置17の表示面17aに近接するよう傾斜している。   Here, the opening front end of the peripheral wall portion 91 is formed in an inclined shape obtained by obliquely cutting a cylindrical body, and a length dimension L from the bottom surface plate 92 to the opening end in the peripheral wall portion 91 (from the bottom surface plate 92). The projecting dimension of the projection is continuously changed. And in the state which has arrange | positioned the said rotation effect apparatus 40 in the frame-shaped decorative body 30, as shown in FIG. 11 or FIG. 12, the opening front end surface of the said surrounding wall part 91 is substantially the transparent protective board 13a of the said front frame 13. As shown in FIG. Configured to be parallel. At this time, the rotation effect device 40 is disposed in an inclined posture in which the projecting dimension toward the front of the peripheral wall portion 91 increases as it approaches the opening 31 (stage 34) of the frame-shaped decorative body 30. In other words, the bottom plate 92 (LED substrate 50) of the tubular member 90 forms a vertical surface and is inclined so that the end (left end) on the stage 34 side is close to the display surface 17a of the symbol display device 17. is doing.
また、前記筒状部材90における周壁部91が底面板92(LED基板50)から前方へ突出する最短の長さ寸法Lは、該LED基板50から可動体60までの離間寸法Lよりも大きくなるよう設定されている。具体的には、前記底面板92(LED基板50)から突出する周壁部91の最短の長さ寸法Lが、前記底面板92(LED基板50)から可動体60における外側面79の前端までの寸法H以上に設定される。すなわち、前記周壁部91全体が底面板92(LED基板50)から可動体60の外側面79の前端までの寸法H以上となっている。従って、前記LED基板50と略平行に照射される前記第2LED52からの光は、前記底面板92(LED基板50)と可動体60との間の間隙Sを介して前記周壁部91の内周面に常に照射される。 Further, the shortest length dimension L 1 at which the peripheral wall portion 91 of the cylindrical member 90 projects forward from the bottom plate 92 (LED substrate 50) is larger than the separation dimension L 2 from the LED substrate 50 to the movable body 60. It is set to be large. Specifically, the shortest length L 1 of the peripheral wall portion 91 projecting from the bottom plate 92 (LED board 50) is, to the front end of the outer surface 79 of the movable member 60 from the bottom plate 92 (LED board 50) Is set to a dimension H or more. That is, the entire peripheral wall portion 91 is not less than the dimension H from the bottom plate 92 (LED substrate 50) to the front end of the outer surface 79 of the movable body 60. Therefore, the light from the second LED 52 that is irradiated substantially parallel to the LED substrate 50 passes through the inner periphery of the peripheral wall portion 91 through the gap S between the bottom plate 92 (LED substrate 50) and the movable body 60. The surface is always illuminated.
また、前記筒状部材90の内周面には、前後方向に延在する溝状部91aが周方向に離間して複数形成されて、該内周面が曲面や凹凸面を有する立体形状を呈すると共に、該筒状部材90の全体(周壁部91および底面板92)に光反射処理がなされている。なお実施例では、光反射処理として金属メッキを施してある。また、前記溝状部91aは、前記筒状部材90の底面板92から可動体60の外側面79の前端部より前方まで延在するよう形成されている。すなわち、前記底面板92(LED基板50)と可動体60との間の間隙Sを介して前記周壁部91の内周面に照射された前記第2LED52からの光は、該周壁部91の内周面と可動体60の外側面79との間で複雑に乱反射して機全面側に照射される。   In addition, a plurality of groove-shaped portions 91a extending in the front-rear direction are formed on the inner peripheral surface of the cylindrical member 90 so as to be spaced apart in the circumferential direction, and the inner peripheral surface has a three-dimensional shape having a curved surface or an uneven surface. In addition, the entire cylindrical member 90 (the peripheral wall portion 91 and the bottom plate 92) is subjected to a light reflection process. In the embodiment, metal plating is applied as the light reflection treatment. The groove 91 a is formed so as to extend from the bottom plate 92 of the cylindrical member 90 to the front from the front end of the outer surface 79 of the movable body 60. That is, the light from the second LED 52 irradiated on the inner peripheral surface of the peripheral wall portion 91 through the gap S between the bottom plate 92 (LED substrate 50) and the movable body 60 is the inner wall of the peripheral wall portion 91. The diffuse reflection is complicated between the peripheral surface and the outer surface 79 of the movable body 60, and the entire surface of the machine is irradiated.
前記筒状部材90における周壁部91の外周面には、図5、図6または図8に示すように、外方へ突出する複数(実施例では3つ)のフランジ片93,94が形成されると共に、該フランジ片93,94に前後に貫通する通孔93a,94aが形成されている。ここで、1つのフランジ片94は、前記筒状部材90の底面板92より後方に位置するよう形成されており、該底面板92より後方に位置するフランジ片94を、前記ベース部材42に形成された位置決め凹部42cに臨ませることで、ベース部材41(本体部42)の各位置決め部42bと筒状部材90の各固定突部とが嵌合して両部材41,90を所定の位置関係で固定し得るようになっている。すなわち、前記ベース部材42の位置決め凹部42cおよび筒状部材90のフランジ片94は、ベース部材42と筒状部材90とを所定の位置関係に位置合わせする位置合わせ手段として機能している。そして、前記フランジ片93の通孔93aに後方から挿通したネジを、前記枠状装飾体30の裏側に形成したネジ孔(図示せず)に螺挿することで、筒状部材90(回転演出装置40)が枠状装飾体30に固定される。このとき、前記筒状部材90および該筒状部材90の内側に位置する前記可動体60の夫々は前記枠状装飾体30の設置窓38から露出する一方で、ベース部材41(モータ設置部47)は枠状装飾体30と前後に重なって前方から視認し得ないようになっている。   As shown in FIG. 5, FIG. 6, or FIG. 8, a plurality of (three in the embodiment) flange pieces 93, 94 are formed on the outer peripheral surface of the peripheral wall 91 of the cylindrical member 90. In addition, through holes 93a and 94a are formed in the flange pieces 93 and 94 so as to penetrate in the front-rear direction. Here, one flange piece 94 is formed to be located behind the bottom plate 92 of the tubular member 90, and the flange piece 94 located behind the bottom plate 92 is formed in the base member 42. By facing the positioning recess 42c, the positioning portions 42b of the base member 41 (main body portion 42) and the fixing protrusions of the cylindrical member 90 are fitted to each other, and the two members 41 and 90 are in a predetermined positional relationship. It can be fixed with. That is, the positioning recess 42c of the base member 42 and the flange piece 94 of the cylindrical member 90 function as alignment means for aligning the base member 42 and the cylindrical member 90 in a predetermined positional relationship. Then, by inserting a screw inserted from the rear into the through hole 93a of the flange piece 93 into a screw hole (not shown) formed on the back side of the frame-shaped decorative body 30, a cylindrical member 90 (rotation effect) The device 40) is fixed to the frame-shaped decorative body 30. At this time, each of the cylindrical member 90 and the movable body 60 located inside the cylindrical member 90 is exposed from the installation window 38 of the frame-shaped decorative body 30, while the base member 41 (the motor installation portion 47). ) Overlaps with the frame-shaped decorative body 30 in the front-rear direction so that it cannot be seen from the front.
ここで、前記回転演出装置40は、前記枠状装飾体30の開口部31(すなわち図柄表示装置17)に近接するにつれて前記周壁部91の突出寸法Lが増大する姿勢で枠状装飾体30に配設されて、該回転演出装置40の外周壁(ベース部材41の支持壁42aおよび筒状部材90の周壁部91)がステージ34より上方に位置するようになっている。更に、回転演出装置40における前記ステージ34より上方に位置する部位は、該ステージ34の前後幅(第1ステージ部35aの後端部から第2ステージ部35bの前端部までの幅)の全長に亘って、前記ベース部材41の支持壁42aおよび筒状部材90の周壁部91が臨むよう構成されており、ステージ34の右側端部まで転動して周壁部91に接触したパチンコ球を、ステージ34側に跳ね返して筒状部材90内へパチンコ球が進入するのを規制するようになっている(図12参照)。また、前記回転演出装置40を枠状装飾体30に取り付けた状態では、前記周壁部91の開口前端から前記前枠13の透明保護板13aまでの間隙(すなわち周壁部91の開口前端から透明保護板13aまでの離間寸法L)がパチンコ球の直径寸法より小さくなるよう設定されており、遊技領域20aを流下するパチンコ球が筒状部材90の内部に進入しないようになっている。すなわち、前記筒状部材90の周壁部91は、該筒状部材90内へのパチンコ球の進入を規制する規制手段として機能している。 Here, the rotation effect device 40 is attached to the frame-shaped decorative body 30 in such a posture that the projecting dimension L of the peripheral wall portion 91 increases as it approaches the opening 31 (that is, the symbol display device 17) of the frame-shaped decorative body 30. Arranged so that the outer peripheral wall of the rotation effect device 40 (the support wall 42a of the base member 41 and the peripheral wall portion 91 of the cylindrical member 90) is positioned above the stage 34. Furthermore, the part located above the stage 34 in the rotation effect device 40 has the full length of the front and rear width of the stage 34 (the width from the rear end portion of the first stage portion 35a to the front end portion of the second stage portion 35b). The support wall 42a of the base member 41 and the peripheral wall portion 91 of the cylindrical member 90 face each other. The pachinko ball that rolls to the right end of the stage 34 and contacts the peripheral wall portion 91 is The pachinko ball is rebounded to the side 34 and restricted from entering the cylindrical member 90 (see FIG. 12). In the state where the rotation effect device 40 is attached to the frame-shaped decorative body 30, the gap from the opening front end of the peripheral wall portion 91 to the transparent protective plate 13 a of the front frame 13 (that is, transparent protection from the opening front end of the peripheral wall portion 91). The separation dimension L 3 ) to the plate 13 a is set to be smaller than the diameter dimension of the pachinko ball, so that the pachinko ball flowing down the game area 20 a does not enter the inside of the cylindrical member 90. That is, the peripheral wall portion 91 of the tubular member 90 functions as a restricting means that restricts the pachinko ball from entering the tubular member 90.
〔実施例の作用〕
次に、前述のように構成された実施例に係るパチンコ機10の作用について説明する。
(Effects of Example)
Next, the operation of the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment configured as described above will be described.
前記遊技盤20に設けた内外のレール22a,22bに沿って遊技領域20aに打ち出されたパチンコ球は、遊技盤20上に設けた遊技釘等に接触して流下方向を変更しながら流下する。そして、前記遊技領域20aを流下するパチンコ球が前記始動入賞装置23に入賞すると、前記図柄表示装置17において所要の図柄変動演出が開始され、図柄変動演出の結果、図柄表示装置17に特定の図柄組合わせが表示されると大当りが発生し、前記特別入賞装置24が開放してパチンコ球の入賞が許容される。そして、前記始動入賞装置23にパチンコ球が入賞すると、所定の制御条件下で前記回転演出装置40の発光により発光演出が行なわれると共に、可動体60の回転により動作演出が行なわれる。   Pachinko balls launched into the game area 20a along the inner and outer rails 22a and 22b provided on the game board 20 come into contact with the game nails provided on the game board 20 and flow down while changing the flow direction. When the pachinko ball flowing down the game area 20a wins the start winning device 23, a required symbol variation effect is started in the symbol display device 17, and as a result of the symbol variation effect, a specific symbol is displayed on the symbol display device 17. When the combination is displayed, a big win is generated, and the special prize-winning device 24 is opened to allow a pachinko ball to be awarded. When a pachinko ball wins the start winning device 23, a light emission effect is performed by the light emission of the rotation effect device 40 under predetermined control conditions, and an operation effect is performed by the rotation of the movable body 60.
前記回転演出装置40は、前記可動体60が原位置にある状態では、前記LED基板50に設けた各第1LED51の前側に、前記光透過部材64の第1レンズ部65およびレンズ部材70の第2レンズ部71が夫々位置している。従って、前記可動体60が原位置にある状態で各第1LED51から照射された光は、前記第1レンズ部65を透過して光透過部材64と第2レンズ部71との間に配置された光拡散シート74により拡散された後に、更に第2レンズ部71を透過し、前記装飾カバー体76の露出窓部78を介して遊技者側(機前面側)へ照射される。   In the state where the movable body 60 is in the original position, the rotation effect device 40 has a first lens portion 65 of the light transmitting member 64 and a first lens member 70 on the front side of each first LED 51 provided on the LED substrate 50. Two lens portions 71 are located respectively. Accordingly, the light emitted from each first LED 51 with the movable body 60 in the original position is transmitted between the first lens portion 65 and disposed between the light transmitting member 64 and the second lens portion 71. After being diffused by the light diffusing sheet 74, it further passes through the second lens portion 71 and is irradiated to the player side (front side) through the exposed window portion 78 of the decorative cover body 76.
ここで、前記第2レンズ部71の裏側には光拡散処理が施されているから、前記光拡散シート74で拡散された光が該第2レンズ部71を透過する際に更に光拡散される。これにより、前記各第2レンズ部71(装飾カバー体76の露出窓部78)の全体を明輝させることができる。すなわち、前記第1LED51からの光が点光源のように明輝されるのを防止できるから、前記可動体60が原位置にある状態での第1LED51による光装飾効果を高めることができる。また、前記光拡散シート74を設けると共に第2レンズ部71に光拡散処理を施すことで、装飾カバー体76の露出窓部78を介して遊技者側からLED基板50が目視されるのを防止でき、回転演出装置40の装飾性が損なわれることはない。   Here, since the light diffusion process is performed on the back side of the second lens portion 71, the light diffused by the light diffusion sheet 74 is further diffused when passing through the second lens portion 71. . Thereby, the whole of each said 2nd lens part 71 (exposure window part 78 of the decorative cover body 76) can be brightened. That is, since the light from the first LED 51 can be prevented from being bright like a point light source, the light decoration effect by the first LED 51 in a state where the movable body 60 is in the original position can be enhanced. Further, by providing the light diffusing sheet 74 and performing a light diffusing process on the second lens portion 71, it is possible to prevent the LED substrate 50 from being seen from the player side through the exposed window portion 78 of the decorative cover body 76. The decorativeness of the rotation effect device 40 is not impaired.
また、前記可動体60をLED基板50の前側で回転させた場合には、前記各第1レンズ部65および第2レンズ部71が周方向に隣接して位置する第1LED51の前側に順次移動するから、第1LED51から照射された光は、前述と同様に第1レンズ部65を透過して光透過部材64と第2レンズ部71との間に配置された光拡散シート74により拡散された後に、更に第2レンズ部71を透過し、前記装飾カバー体76の露出窓部78を介して遊技者側(機前面側)へ照射される。従って、第1LED51からの光が点光源のように明輝されるのを防止して、前記各第2レンズ部71(装飾カバー体76の露出窓部78)の全体が明輝することで光装飾効果を高められると共に、装飾カバー体76の露出窓部78を介して遊技者側からLED基板50が目視されるのを防止できる。   Further, when the movable body 60 is rotated on the front side of the LED substrate 50, the first lens portion 65 and the second lens portion 71 sequentially move to the front side of the first LED 51 located adjacent to the circumferential direction. The light emitted from the first LED 51 passes through the first lens portion 65 and is diffused by the light diffusion sheet 74 disposed between the light transmission member 64 and the second lens portion 71 in the same manner as described above. Further, the light passes through the second lens portion 71 and is irradiated to the player side (machine front side) through the exposed window portion 78 of the decorative cover body 76. Therefore, the light from the first LED 51 is prevented from being brightly illuminated like a point light source, and the entire second lens portion 71 (the exposed window portion 78 of the decorative cover body 76) is brightened, thereby providing a light decoration effect. And the LED board 50 can be prevented from being viewed from the player side through the exposed window portion 78 of the decorative cover body 76.
また、前記可動体60は、前記LED基板50との間に一定の間隙Sを保持したまま、該LED基板50の前側で回転される。従って、前記LED基板50に設けた第2LED52からの光は、可動体60とLED基板50との間の間隙Sを介して可動体60の外方へ照射される。ここで、前記可動体60の外側面79を筒状部材90で囲繞すると共に、該筒状部材90の周壁部91を底面板92(LED基板50)から可動体60の外周面前端まで延在するよう形成してあるから、前記第2LED52からの光は間隙Sを介して周壁部91の内周面へ照射される。このとき、前記筒状部材90の全体および可動体60の外周面に光反射処理を施してあるから、第2LED52から周壁部91の内周面に照射された光は、該周壁部91の内周面と可動体60の外側面79との間で相互に反射して機前方(遊技者側)へ照射される。すなわち、実施例の回転演出装置40は、前記第1LED51の光により可動体60の前面(すなわち前面板76側)が明輝されると共に、前記第2LED52の光により可動体60の周り(すなわち外側面79側)も明輝されるから、光による装飾性が一層向上し、高い演出効果が得られる。   In addition, the movable body 60 is rotated on the front side of the LED board 50 while maintaining a certain gap S between the movable body 60 and the LED board 50. Therefore, the light from the second LED 52 provided on the LED substrate 50 is irradiated to the outside of the movable body 60 through the gap S between the movable body 60 and the LED substrate 50. Here, the outer side surface 79 of the movable body 60 is surrounded by the cylindrical member 90, and the peripheral wall portion 91 of the cylindrical member 90 extends from the bottom plate 92 (LED substrate 50) to the front end of the outer peripheral surface of the movable body 60. Thus, the light from the second LED 52 is applied to the inner peripheral surface of the peripheral wall portion 91 through the gap S. At this time, since the entire cylindrical member 90 and the outer peripheral surface of the movable body 60 are subjected to light reflection processing, the light irradiated from the second LED 52 to the inner peripheral surface of the peripheral wall portion 91 is reflected in the inner peripheral wall portion 91. The light is reflected between the peripheral surface and the outer surface 79 of the movable body 60 and irradiated to the front of the machine (player side). That is, in the rotation effect device 40 of the embodiment, the front surface (that is, the front plate 76 side) of the movable body 60 is brightened by the light of the first LED 51, and the periphery of the movable body 60 (that is, the outer side surface) by the light of the second LED 52. 79 side) is also brightened, so that the decorativeness by light is further improved and a high production effect is obtained.
また、実施例では、前記周壁部91の内周面に複数の溝状部91aを設けて立体的な形状に形成すると共に可動体60の外側面79も立体的な形状に形成してある。このため、第2LED52から周壁部91の内周面に照射された光は、周壁部91の内周面と可動体60の外側面79との間で乱反射して、光による装飾性が一段と高められる。更に、前記周壁部91の内周面および可動体60の外側面79間で光が乱反射することで、前記可動体60が回転した際には、可動体60の外側面79側での光の発光態様が複雑に変化し、実施例のようにLED基板50に第2LED52を固定的に配設した構成であっても、可動体60の外側面79側の装飾性を一層向上することができる。このように、実施例に係る回転演出装置40では、LED基板50の前側で可動体60を回転させることで、第1および第2LED51,52の発光による演出と可動体60の回転による演出との相乗的な演出が可能となる。   In the embodiment, a plurality of groove portions 91a are provided on the inner peripheral surface of the peripheral wall portion 91 to form a three-dimensional shape, and the outer surface 79 of the movable body 60 is also formed to a three-dimensional shape. For this reason, the light irradiated on the inner peripheral surface of the peripheral wall portion 91 from the second LED 52 is irregularly reflected between the inner peripheral surface of the peripheral wall portion 91 and the outer surface 79 of the movable body 60, and the decorativeness by light is further enhanced. It is done. Furthermore, light is irregularly reflected between the inner peripheral surface of the peripheral wall portion 91 and the outer surface 79 of the movable body 60, so that when the movable body 60 rotates, the light on the outer surface 79 side of the movable body 60 is transmitted. Even if the light emitting mode changes in a complicated manner and the second LED 52 is fixedly disposed on the LED substrate 50 as in the embodiment, the decorativeness on the outer surface 79 side of the movable body 60 can be further improved. . As described above, in the rotation effect device 40 according to the embodiment, by rotating the movable body 60 on the front side of the LED substrate 50, the effect due to the light emission of the first and second LEDs 51 and 52 and the effect due to the rotation of the movable object 60 are obtained. Synergistic production is possible.
また、前記回転演出装置40は、前記枠状装飾体30に配設された状態で前記ステージ34の右側端部に配置されて、回転演出装置40の外周壁(ベース部材41の支持壁42aおよび筒状部材90の周壁部91)がステージ34より上方に位置するようになっている。このため、パチンコ機10を遊技者側(正面)から見た状態では、前記枠状装飾体30の開口部31に臨む図柄表示装置17の表示面17aが前記回転演出装置40に隣接して位置することになる。このため、前記回転演出装置40からの光が図柄表示装置17からの光に干渉すると、該図柄表示装置17が視認性の低下を招く可能性がある。そこで、実施例の回転演出装置40では、前記可動体60の外側面79を囲繞している前記周壁部91のLED基板50から突出する最短の長さ寸法Lを、該LED基板50から可動体60までの離間寸法Lより大きく設定して、前記第2LED52からの光が周壁部91に照射されるようにしている。すなわち、第2LED52からの光は前記周壁部91で遮られるから、図柄表示装置17からの光に干渉するのを防止でき、図柄表示装置17の視認性を良好な状態に維持し得る。更に、前記周壁部91は、前記枠状装飾体30の開口部31(図柄表示装置17)に近接するにつれて前方へ突出する長さ寸法Lが増大するよう構成されているから、第2LED52からの光を周壁部91で効果的に遮ることができ(図12参照)、回転演出装置40での発光による演出が図柄表示装置17での図柄変動演出の妨げになるのを防止すると共に、回転演出装置40の発光による演出効果も向上することができる。すなわち、前記枠状装飾体30の開口部31(図柄表示装置17)に近接するにつれて前記周壁部91の前方への突出長さ寸法Lが増大することで、該枠状装飾体30の開口部31側では可動体60から周壁部91の開口前端側までの距離が大きくなることから、周壁部91の開口前端に近づくにつれて光の反射量が少なくなって可動体60の外縁が縁取られるように明暗が明確になり、回転演出装置40での発光による演出と図柄表示装置17での演出による光とを明確に区別し得るようになる。 Further, the rotation effect device 40 is disposed at the right end of the stage 34 in a state of being disposed on the frame-shaped decorative body 30, and the outer peripheral wall of the rotation effect device 40 (the support wall 42 a of the base member 41 and The peripheral wall 91) of the cylindrical member 90 is positioned above the stage 34. Therefore, when the pachinko machine 10 is viewed from the player side (front), the display surface 17a of the symbol display device 17 facing the opening 31 of the frame-shaped decorative body 30 is positioned adjacent to the rotation effect device 40. Will do. For this reason, when the light from the rotation effect device 40 interferes with the light from the symbol display device 17, the symbol display device 17 may cause a decrease in visibility. Therefore, in the rotation effect device 40 of the embodiment, the shortest length dimension L 1 protruding from the LED substrate 50 of the peripheral wall portion 91 surrounding the outer surface 79 of the movable body 60 is movable from the LED substrate 50. It is set to be larger than the separation dimension L 2 to the body 60 so that the light from the second LED 52 is applied to the peripheral wall portion 91. That is, since the light from the second LED 52 is blocked by the peripheral wall portion 91, it can be prevented from interfering with the light from the symbol display device 17, and the visibility of the symbol display device 17 can be maintained in a good state. Further, since the peripheral wall portion 91 is configured so that the length dimension L protruding forward increases as it approaches the opening 31 (the symbol display device 17) of the frame-shaped decorative body 30, the distance from the second LED 52 is increased. The light can be effectively blocked by the peripheral wall portion 91 (see FIG. 12), and the effect by the light emission in the rotation effect device 40 is prevented from interfering with the symbol variation effect in the symbol display device 17, and the rotation effect. The production effect by the light emission of the apparatus 40 can also be improved. That is, the length L projecting forward from the peripheral wall portion 91 increases as it approaches the opening portion 31 (the symbol display device 17) of the frame-shaped decorative body 30, whereby the opening portion of the frame-shaped decorative body 30 is increased. Since the distance from the movable body 60 to the opening front end side of the peripheral wall 91 increases on the 31st side, the amount of reflected light decreases as the distance from the opening front end of the peripheral wall 91 decreases, and the outer edge of the movable body 60 is trimmed. Brightness and darkness are clarified, and it is possible to clearly distinguish between the effect produced by the light emission by the rotation effect device 40 and the light produced by the effect produced by the symbol display device 17.
また、前記回転演出装置40は、前記回転演出装置40の外周壁(ベース部材41の支持壁42aおよび筒状部材90の周壁部91)がステージ34より上方に位置するよう構成されているから、ステージ34の端部まで転動したパチンコ球は該回転演出装置40の外周壁との接触によりステージ34側に戻される。すなわち、筒状部材90が遮光機能だけでなく、ステージ34の端部まで転動したパチンコ球をステージ34へ戻す球戻し機能を具備することで、該筒状部材90の汎用性が向上する。更に、前記筒状部材90がパチンコ球をステージ34側に戻すことで、ステージ34を転動するパチンコ球が筒状部材90の内側に進入するのを防止でき、可動体60の動作不良が発生するのを防止できる。そして、ステージ34の端部まで転動したパチンコ球をステージ34に戻す部材を別途設ける必要がなく、部品点数の減少を図りコスト低減をなし得る利点もある。   Further, the rotation effect device 40 is configured such that the outer peripheral wall of the rotation effect device 40 (the support wall 42a of the base member 41 and the peripheral wall portion 91 of the cylindrical member 90) is positioned above the stage 34. The pachinko ball that has rolled to the end of the stage 34 is returned to the stage 34 side by contact with the outer peripheral wall of the rotation effect device 40. That is, the cylindrical member 90 has not only a light shielding function but also a ball returning function for returning a pachinko ball that has been rolled to the end of the stage 34 to the stage 34, thereby improving the versatility of the cylindrical member 90. Further, the cylindrical member 90 returns the pachinko ball to the stage 34 side, so that it is possible to prevent the pachinko ball rolling on the stage 34 from entering the inside of the cylindrical member 90, and malfunction of the movable body 60 occurs. Can be prevented. Further, there is no need to separately provide a member for returning the pachinko ball that has been rolled to the end of the stage 34 to the stage 34, and there is an advantage that the number of parts can be reduced and the cost can be reduced.
また、実施例のパチンコ機10では、遊技盤20の遊技領域20aを透視保護する前枠13の透明保護板13aから前記筒状部材90の開口前端までの離間寸法Lを、パチンコ球の直径寸法より狭くなるよう設定したことで、遊技領域20aを流下するパチンコ球が筒状部材90の内部に進入することはない。すなわち、筒状部材90の内部にパチンコ球が進入するカバー部材を筒状部材90の開口前端側に別途設ける必要がないから、部品点数を減少させて、コストの低減を図り得る。また、筒状部材90の開口前端にカバー部材を設ける構成では、前記第1LED51および第2LED52からの光がカバー部材を透過する際に輝度の低下が発生したり、カバー部材に発光斑が生ずる等の悪影響を少なからず受ける虞があるが、透明保護板13aと筒状部材90の開口前端との離間寸法Lを調整して筒状部材90の内部へのパチンコ球の進入を規制することで、このようなカバー部材の悪影響を排除できる。従って、可動体60の前面での発光や可動体60外周面での発光による装飾性の低下を防止できる。 Further, in the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, the separation dimension L 3 from the transparent protective plate 13a of the front frame 13 to the opening front end of the tubular member 90 which perspective protect game region 20a of the game board 20, the diameter of the pachinko ball The pachinko ball that flows down the game area 20a does not enter the inside of the cylindrical member 90 because it is set to be narrower than the size. That is, since it is not necessary to separately provide a cover member into which the pachinko ball enters the inside of the cylindrical member 90 on the opening front end side of the cylindrical member 90, the number of parts can be reduced and the cost can be reduced. Further, in the configuration in which the cover member is provided at the opening front end of the cylindrical member 90, when the light from the first LED 51 and the second LED 52 is transmitted through the cover member, the luminance is lowered, the light emission spots are generated on the cover member, etc. in adverse there is a possibility to receive not a little, but to restrict the entry of pachinko balls by adjusting the separation dimension L 3 between the opening front end of the transparent protective plate 13a and the cylindrical member 90 into the interior of the tubular member 90 Such an adverse effect of the cover member can be eliminated. Accordingly, it is possible to prevent the decoration from being deteriorated due to light emission on the front surface of the movable body 60 and light emission on the outer peripheral surface of the movable body 60.
