Hereinafter, members constituting the pachinko gaming machine 1 will be described in detail.

[1-1. Outer frame]
The outer frame 2 will be described mainly with reference to FIGS. FIG. 8 is a perspective view seen from the front of the outer frame 2, and FIG. 9 is a rear view of the outer frame 2.

  The outer frame 2 connects the upper and lower upper frame plates 10 and 11 and the left and right side frame plates 12 and 13 with corner metal fittings 14 to 16 and upper support metal fittings 17 for connecting respective end portions. It can be assembled into a square shape. Specifically, the upper part of the open side is connected by screwing the upper corner metal fitting 14 that is passed to the upper surface and rear surface of the end portion of the upper frame plate 10 and the outer surface and rear surface of the end portion of the side frame plate 13, The lower part on the open side is connected by screwing the bottom bottom and rear surfaces of the lower frame plate 11 and the lower right corner metal fitting 15 passed to the outer side and rear surfaces of the side frame plate 13 on the side of the pivot support. The upper part is connected by screwing the upper support bracket 17 that is passed to the upper surface of the end part of the upper frame plate 10 and the outer side surface of the end part of the side frame plate 12, and the lower part on the shaft support side is connected to the lower frame plate 11. The end bottom surface and the rear surface are connected to the end frame outer surface and the rear surface of the side frame plate 12 by screwing the lower left corner metal fitting 16.

  Of the upper frame plate 10 and the lower frame plate 11 and the left and right side frame plates 12 and 13 constituting the outer frame 2, the upper frame plate 10 and the lower frame plate 11 are made of the same wood as the conventional one, and the left and right side frames. The plates 12 and 13 are made of an extruded plate of a light metal, for example, an aluminum alloy. The reason why the upper frame plate 10 and the lower frame plate 11 are made of the same wood as before is that when the pachinko gaming machine 1 is installed on the island lined up in the game hall, a predetermined angle is given to the vertical plane of the island. It is necessary to perform a fixing operation, and such an operation is performed by driving nails to the upper frame plate 10 and the lower frame plate 11 and the island. On the other hand, the reason why the left and right side frame plates 12 and 13 are made of an aluminum alloy extrusion-molded plate is that the thickness can be reduced while maintaining the strength as compared with the conventional wood. , 13 can be widened when viewed from the front of the side wall 180 (see FIG. 31) of the main body frame 3 adjacent to the inside. For this reason, the game board 4 having a large left-right direction can be attached to the main body frame 3, and as a result, the game area 205 of the game board 4 can be formed large. However, if the left and right side frame plates 12 and 13 are made of an aluminum alloy flat plate, sufficient rigidity cannot be ensured, and therefore the left and right side frame plates 12 and 13 that are positions that do not interfere with the side wall 180 of the main body frame 3 are used. A reinforcing rib (no symbol) is formed inside the rear portion.

  Further, the lower front cover plate 6 fixed to the lower front surface of the lower frame plate 11 and the left and right side frame plates 12 and 13 has the main body frame 3 placed on the upper surface thereof when closed. The surface of the lower front cover plate 6 is covered with the decorative plate 6a as described above, but a fixing projection 6b (see FIG. 9) with an elastic claw formed at the rear end of the decorative plate 6a projects. The fixing projection 6 b is attached to the lower front cover plate 6 by being passed through an attachment hole penetrating the lower front cover plate 6. Further, a back plate 7 is fixed to the upper part of the back surface of the lower front cover plate 6 to reinforce the strength of the lower front cover plate 6 on which the main body frame 3 is placed.

  By the way, as a structure for pivotally supporting the main body frame 3 so as to be openable and closable, it is attached along the upper surface of one side of the upper support bracket 17 and the lower front cover plate 6 for connecting the upper frame plate 10 and the side frame plate 12. A support fitting 18 is provided. The upper support member 17 is formed with a support hole 20 bent in a support protrusion piece 19 protruding forward, and a shaft support pin of an upper shaft support member 152 (to be described later) of the main body frame 3 is formed in the support hole 20. 153 (see FIG. 32) is engaged. Further, the lower support fitting 18 is also formed in a shape protruding forward, and a support protrusion 21 protrudes upward from the protruding portion, and a frame support plate 155 (described later) of the main body frame 3 is provided on the support protrusion 21. A support hole formed in FIG. 32) is inserted. Therefore, in order to support the main body frame 3 on the outer frame 2, after engaging the support holes formed in the frame support plate 155 of the main body frame 3 with the support protrusions 21 of the lower support bracket 18, By pivoting the shaft support pin 153 of the upper shaft support bracket 152 in the support rod hole 20, the shaft can be supported in a freely openable and closable manner.

  On the other hand, closing projections 22 and 23 are fixed to the upper and lower sides of the open side frame 13. When the main body frame 3 is closed with respect to the outer frame 2, the closing protrusions 22 and 23 engage with a hook portion 406 (see FIG. 43) of the lock device 400 attached along the open side of the main body frame 3. To do. Then, as will be described in detail later, by inserting a key into the cylinder lock 404 of the locking device 400 and rotating it to one side, the engagement between the hook portion 406 and the closing projections 22 and 23 is released, and the main body frame 3 is removed. The frame 2 can be opened.

  When the upper support plate 17 and the corner brackets 14 to 16 for connecting the upper frame plate 10, the lower frame plate 11, and the side frame plates 12 and 13 constituting the outer frame 2 are respectively attached to predetermined positions, As shown in FIG. 9, each frame plate 10 corresponding to the mounting portion of each metal fitting 14 to 17 is such that the outer surface of each metal fitting 14 to 17 and the outer surface of each frame plate 10 to 13 are substantially flush with each other. ˜13 ends are formed in a concave shape.

Further, at this time, the tip end portion of the stopper portion 25a is not in a state of closing the inlet space portion of the inclined hole portion of the support hole 20. That is, in a normal state, a space in which the shaft support pin 153 of the upper shaft support bracket 152 of the main body frame 3 is inserted is formed in a space portion other than the entrance space portion of the support hole 20.

  In the shaft support structure configured as described above, a normal shaft in a state where the shaft support pin 153 is inserted into the support hole 20 and the tip of the stopper portion 25a is opposed to the inlet end of the support hole 20. In the support state, the shaft support pin 153 supporting the heavy main body frame 3 is in contact with the tip end portion (back side portion) of the support rod hole 20. Since almost no load is applied to the tip of the stopper portion 25a, no load is applied to the elastic piece 25c of the lock member 25. For this reason, the elastic piece 25c of the lock member 25 is not always loaded, and the elastic piece 25c integrally formed of synthetic resin is prevented from being plastically deformed by creep, so that the supporting pin hole of the shaft support pin 153 can be used for a long period of time. Omission from 20 can be prevented. Even if an excessive force is applied and the distal end portion of the stopper portion 25a of the lock member 25 is rotated in a direction away from the support projecting piece 19 (clockwise in the figure), one side of the distal end portion of the stopper portion 25a. Does not rotate in such a direction as to come into contact with the hanging wall of the support protruding piece 19 and further disengage, the lock member 25 does not protrude outside the support protruding piece 19.

  The operation of the lock member 25 configured as described above will be described. As a premise that the main body frame 3 is pivotally supported by the outer frame 2 so as to be openable and closable, the support protrusions 21 of the lower support fitting 18 are formed in support holes (not shown) formed in the frame support plate 155 (see FIG. 32) of the main body frame 3. It must be inserted. Under such a premise, the lock member 25 deforms the elastic piece 25c by pushing the shaft support pin 153 of the upper shaft support metal 152 of the main body frame 3 into contact with the side surface of the stopper portion 25a of the lock member 25. Since it rotates counterclockwise, the pivot pin 153 can be inserted into the support hole 20. When the shaft support pin 153 reaches the leading space portion of the inclined hole portion of the support flange 20, the shaft support pin 153 and the tip side surface of the stopper portion 25a do not come into contact with each other, so that the lock member 25 is elastic of the elastic piece 25c. The stopper portion 25a of the lock member 25 returns to the normal state again and closes the inlet portion of the support hole 20, and at the same time the tip portion of the stopper portion 25a is pivotally supported. Opposite to 153, the pivot pin 153 is prevented from falling out of the support hole 20. This state is maintained even when the main body frame 3 is completely closed or during a normal opening / closing operation of the main body frame 3. Next, in order to remove the pivot pin 153 from the support rod hole 20, the lock member 25 is moved by inserting a finger into the back surface of the support protrusion piece 19 and turning the operation portion 25b of the lock member 25 counterclockwise. Since it rotates against the elastic force of the elastic piece 25c and the tip portion of the stopper portion 25a is retracted from the support hole 20, the shaft support pin 153 can be taken out from the support hole 20. Thereafter, the main body frame 3 can be removed from the outer frame 2 by lifting the main body frame 3 and releasing the engagement between the support holes formed in the frame support plate 155 and the support protrusions 21 of the lower support fitting 18. .

  As described above, the lock member 25 provided on the upper support bracket 17 of the outer frame 2 has the stopper portion 25a, the operation portion 25b, and the elastic piece 25c integrally formed of synthetic resin. It can be attached to the back surface of the plate very easily, and since it has a very simple structure, there are few failures and the manufacturing cost can be reduced. Even if the acting force is applied in the direction in which the pivot pin 153 is pulled out along the inclination of the inclined hole portion of the support hole 20, no load is applied to the elastic piece 25c of the lock member 25 at all times. It is possible to prevent plastic deformation due to creep of the elastic piece 25c formed integrally with the resin, to prevent the shaft support pin 153 from coming off from the support hole 20 over a long period of time, and to rotate the lock member 25. In addition, since the one side of the tip of the stopper portion 25 a only abuts against the hanging wall of the support protruding piece 19, the lock member 25 does not protrude outside the support protruding piece 19.

In the storage portion 81, a light projection port 85 (see FIGS. 19A and 19B) is formed at a position corresponding to the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 so that the light emitting surface of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 faces. . The light projecting port 85 has an inwardly inclined surface 87 (see FIGS. 21A and 21B) whose side facing the insertion opening extends from the inner peripheral surface of the storage portion 81 toward the groove 82. An outwardly inclined surface 86 (see FIGS. 19A and 19B) that is formed in a shape and has two sides adjacent to the side facing the insertion opening spread from the groove 82 to the inner peripheral surface of the storage unit 81. ). The light emitted from the light emitting surfaces of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 is made to travel toward the surface of the game board 4 by the inwardly inclined surface 87, and also proceeds toward the inner space of the unit frame 71 by the outwardly inclined surface 86. It has become.

  The unit frame 71 will be described in more detail. Stop pieces 72 each having a positioning hole 73 are formed on the left and right sides of the unit frame 71 so as to project outwardly from the annular shape, and the left and right sides of the unit frame 71 are latched. A projecting piece 74 is formed to project toward the outer side of the ring. The stopper piece 72 and the latching protrusion piece 74 are for attaching the glass unit 70 to the back surface of the door frame 5. Further, a glass contact step 75 for fitting the glass plate 80 is provided around the outer peripheral front and back surface portions of the unit frame 71, and the glass plate 80 is attached to the glass contact step 75 with an adhesive (hot melt). When bonded with the system adhesive), the two glass plates 80 are accommodated within the width dimension of the unit frame 71.

  Further, when viewed from the front, on the upper left side of the unit frame 71, above the stopper piece 72, a relay board storage portion 88 having a substantially square box shape with an open rear side projects toward the outer side of the ring. Is formed. The relay board storage portion 88 can store therein the relay board 100 electrically connected to the flexible printed boards 105 and 107 having different lengths, and a fixing cover body for fixing the relay board 100. 96 and the relay printed circuit board 100 are detached from the flexible printed circuit boards 105 and 107, and an auxiliary cover body 97 for preventing interruption of electrical connection is attached. Since the fixed cover body 96 and the auxiliary cover body 97 are attached to the relay board storage section 88, the opening of the relay board storage section 88 is closed. In addition, two flexible printed boards 105 and 107 that are electrically connected to the relay board 100 are disposed on one side of the inner peripheral surface excluding the lower right of the unit frame 71 when viewed from the front. A storage portion 81 having a groove 82 to be inserted from the insertion opening is formed so as to project toward the inner side of the annular shape, and the width dimension of the storage portion 81 is formed on the front and rear surfaces of the unit frame 71 as shown in FIG. It is formed so as to be smaller by “a minute gap d” than the width dimension between the glass contact step portions 75 to be formed (in other words, the inner space dimension between the two glass plates 80A).

  Further, as shown in FIGS. 19A and 19B, the unit frame 71 has a plurality of positioning protrusions for positioning the flexible printed circuit boards 105 and 107 in the groove 82 along the inner peripheral surface thereof. 84 is formed to project toward the inner side of the ring at an appropriate interval. In order to prevent the positioning protrusions 84 and the storage part 81 from interfering with each other, the storage part 81 is formed with a U-shaped escape port 83 at a position corresponding to the positioning protrusion 84. The storage unit 81 has a plurality of surface-mounting type light-emitting diodes 106 and 108 mounted on the flexible printed circuit boards 105 and 107 at predetermined intervals (in this embodiment, the surface-mounting type is a wide-angle type). A U-shaped light emitting opening 85 is formed at a position corresponding to the above. The groove 82, the escape port 83, and the light projection port 85 are inserted in a state where the glass plate 80 (the rear glass plate 80 as viewed from the front) is bonded to the glass contact step 75 on the rear surface of the unit frame 71. The opening is closed.

  By the way, as shown in FIGS. 21A and 21B, the U-shaped light emitting opening 85 facing the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 has a size mounted on the flexible printed circuit boards 105 and 107. , 108 is formed to be larger than the outer shape of the light emitting diodes 106, 108, but the mouth facing the insertion opening is positioned to coincide with the center line of the light emitting surface of the light emitting diodes 106, 108. Accordingly, as shown in FIG. 21B, the light projection port 85 is formed so as to be able to face half of the light emitting surfaces of the light emitting surfaces of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108. As shown in FIG. 21A, the two sides of the light emitting port 85 that do not cover the light emitting surfaces of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are outwardly inclined surfaces that extend from the groove 82 toward the inner peripheral surface of the storage portion 81. 86, and the light emitted from the light emitting surfaces of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 spreads in the inner peripheral direction of the storage portion 81 through the light projection port 85 and proceeds toward the inner side of the ring. It can be done. As a result, the light can illuminate the inner space of the unit frame 71 sandwiched between the glass plates 80 in a state where the glass plate 80 is bonded to the glass contact step portions 75 of the outer peripheral front and rear surface portions of the unit frame 71. It can be done. On the other hand, the side of the projection port 85 that covers the light emitting surfaces of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108, that is, the side facing the insertion opening is emitted from the light emitting surfaces of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108, as shown in FIG. Thus, the light is shaped to have an inwardly inclined surface 87 that travels in the direction of the insertion opening of the storage portion 81. As a result, light emitted from the light emitting surfaces of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 travels toward the insertion opening portion of the storage portion 81, that is, toward the surface of the game board 4. It will not proceed directly in the opposite direction, that is, the player side. Therefore, it is possible to prevent light emitted from the light emitting surfaces of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 from directly entering the player's eyes. Note that the player sitting on the front of another pachinko gaming machine adjacent to the pachinko gaming machine 1 sees the glass unit 70A at an angle when viewing the gaming board 4 of the pachinko gaming machine 1, so the glass unit In a state where the 70A light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are caused to emit light, the light emitted from the light emitting surfaces of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 is repeatedly reflected by the glass plates 80 and 80, as shown in FIG. The player who sits directly on the front surface of the pachinko gaming machine 1 can see the glass unit 70A from the front, and the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are located at the positions where the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are disposed. The light emitted from the light emitting surface can be seen as one point.

  In this way, the light emitted from the light emitting surfaces of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 advances toward the surface of the game board 4 by the inwardly inclined surface 87, so that it does not go directly to the player side but directly enters the player's eyes. In addition, the light emitted from the light emitting surfaces of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 travels toward the inner space of the unit frame 71 by the outward inclined surface 86, so that the inner space of the unit frame 71 can be illuminated brightly. As a result, in the pachinko gaming machine 1 in which the glass unit 70A is attached to the door frame 5, the inner space of the unit frame 71 is brightly illuminated, so that a game that flows down the obstacle nail provided in the game area 205 or the game area 205 The sphere can be illuminated brightly. Therefore, even when there are few opportunities to perform a light emission effect using a decoration lamp or the like provided in the game area 205, it is possible to easily illuminate and visually recognize the falling state of the obstacle nail or the game ball. Note that illumination light from some of the many illumination lamps provided on the ceiling of the game hall is reflected (reflected) on the glass plate 80 of the door frame 5 that covers the front side of the game board 4. In some cases, however, the illumination on the game area side of the glass plate 80 is relatively high when a lighting effect is provided by a decoration lamp or the like provided in the game area 205, so the door frame 5 covering the front side of the game board 4 While the degree of reflection (reflection) on the glass plate 80 is low, the illuminance on the game area side of the glass plate 80 decreases when the lighting effect by the decoration lamp or the like is not performed, so that the light reflected like a mirror is played by the player It will enter the eyes as it is. In the present embodiment, the light emitted from the light emitting surfaces of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 travels toward the inner space of the unit frame 71 by the outward inclined surface 86, so that the inner space of the unit frame 71 can be illuminated brightly. Therefore, even when there are few opportunities to perform a light-emitting effect by a decorative lamp or the like, the illumination for brightening the flow mode of the game ball flowing down on the surface of the game board and making it easy to see is reflected on the glass plate ( Therefore, there is no problem that it is difficult to visually recognize the flow mode of the game ball flowing down on the surface of the game board. In the present embodiment, since the inner space of the unit frame 71 is brightly illuminated by the light emitted from the light emitting surfaces of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108, normal illumination light such as an illumination lamp in a game hall is reflected on the glass plate 80. Even if (reflection), the reflected illumination light can be relatively weakened. Thereby, the player can play a game without paying attention to the reflected illumination light. Furthermore, even when the lighting of the entire game hall is reduced in order to increase the lighting decoration effect of the gaming machine itself, the player can preferably visually recognize the game board surface and the mode of the game ball flowing down the game board surface. It becomes possible.

  Similarly to the first embodiment, the unit frame 71 is provided with an outer peripheral groove 98 along the outer periphery corresponding to the glass contact step 75 of the unit frame 71, as shown in FIGS. ing. As shown in FIG. 22, a plurality of ventilation holes 95 are formed in the outer peripheral groove 98 on the upper side of the unit frame 71 at appropriate intervals. As shown in FIG. 23, the air vent 95 is formed so as to communicate the outer peripheral groove 98 and the groove 82, and for this reason, an airtight space sandwiched between the outside of the unit frame 71 and the two glass plates 80 is formed. Has a function of communicating with each other. More specifically, since the flexible printed circuit board 105 is extremely thin in a state where the flexible printed circuit board 105 is inserted into the groove 82, a gap is generated between the groove 82 and the flexible printed circuit board 105, and as described above. Since the minute gap d is formed between the open end of the storage portion 81 and the glass plate 80, the outside of the unit frame 71 and the sealed space sandwiched between the two glass plates 80 are communicated. ing. Thus, by connecting the sealed space sandwiched between the two glass plates 80 and the outside via the vent hole 95, even when the glass plate 80 inside the sealed space is condensed, the light emitting diodes 106, Due to the luminescent heat of 108, the dew condensation becomes steam and is quickly discharged from the vent 95 to the outside, so that it is not necessary to equip the unit frame 71 with the desiccant 77 as in the first embodiment. Further, when the unit frame 71 is formed with the vent hole 95, there is a possibility that small dust or the like may enter the sealed space from the vent hole 95. There is also a function of preventing intrusion into the sealed space by dust and the like being attached to and received by the flexible printed board 105 to be inserted.

  In this way, even if dust or the like enters the inside of the unit frame 71 from the outside of the unit frame 71 through the vent hole 95, the structure can be received by the flexible printed circuit boards 105 and 107. Can be prevented from entering the sealed space of the unit frame 71, and dust and the like can be prevented from adhering to the surfaces of the two glass plates 80 in contact with the sealed space. The unit frame 71 is provided with a vent hole 95, and the air heated in the sealed space of the unit frame 71 by the light emitted from the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 of the flexible printed circuit boards 105 and 107 provided on the inner peripheral surface of the unit frame 71 is provided. Since it is structured to be discharged to the outside of the unit frame 71 through the vent hole 95, condensation due to moisture in the sealed space can be removed at an early stage, and the surfaces of the two glass plates 80 in contact with the sealed space It is possible to make a state in which water droplets are attached only to a short time. Therefore, the visibility of the glass plate 80 can be prevented from being lowered.

  On the other hand, on the bottom surface of the inner space of the box-shaped relay board storage part 88, positioning projections 89 are provided at positions corresponding to the two positioning holes 101 of the relay board 100, as shown in FIG. An attachment hole 90 is formed toward the opening of the relay board housing portion 88 at a position corresponding to the two retaining holes 96a of the fixed cover body 96 and is formed toward the opening. A positioning boss hole 91 is formed at a corresponding position toward the opening of the relay board storage portion 88. Further, the inner space of the relay board storage portion 88 communicates with the groove 82, and the ends of the flexible printed boards 105 and 107 stored in the groove 82 are connected to the bottom surface of the inner space of the relay board storage portion 88. Guide walls 92 for guiding the connectors 102 and 103 mounted on 100 are formed toward the opening of the relay board storage portion 88. When the end portions of the flexible printed boards 105 and 107 are inserted into the connectors 102 and 103, the flexible printed boards 105 and 107 and the relay board 100 are electrically connected.

  On the opening side of the inner wall of the relay board storage portion 88, a positioning recess 93 is formed at a position corresponding to the two positioning projections 96b of the fixed cover body 96 of the relay board 100, and the connector 104 mounted on the relay board 100 is formed. A wiring opening 94 for connecting a wiring to the connector 104 is formed at a position corresponding to. When the wiring is connected to the connector 104, the lamp driving substrate 620 (see FIG. 46) is electrically connected through the wiring. The relay board 100 is formed with a copper foil pattern for electrically connecting the connectors 102, 103, 104, and the lamp driving board 620 and the flexible printed boards 105, 107 are electrically connected via the relay board 100. It will be connected to. As a result, the lighting signal and the blinking signal from the lamp driving substrate 620 are transmitted to the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 mounted on the flexible printed circuit boards 105 and 107 via the relay substrate 100, respectively, and the light emitting surfaces of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are transmitted. Can be lit or flashing. After the positioning projection 96b of the fixed cover body 96 is fitted into the positioning recess 93 of the relay board storage portion 88, the screw is directed from the stop hole 96a of the fixed cover body 96 toward the mounting hole 90 of the relay board storage portion 88. The fixed cover body 96 can be fixed to the relay board storage portion 88 by inserting and screwing the 96c. In addition, after the positioning hole 97a of the auxiliary cover body 97 is inserted into the positioning boss hole 91 of the relay board storage part 88, the screw 97b is inserted from the positioning hole 97a toward the positioning boss hole 91 of the relay board storage part 88 and screwed. By doing so, it can be fixed to the relay board storage part 88.

  Next, the flexible printed circuit boards 105 and 107 accommodated in the groove 82 will be described. Although the flexible printed circuit boards 105 and 107 are formed to have different lengths, the structures are the same. Therefore, one second flexible printed circuit board 107 will be described, and the other first flexible printed circuit board 105 will be described. Is omitted.

  A slit, which will be described later, is inserted into the cover film 122 on the back surface side of the base film 120 from the cover film 121 on the mounting surface side of the base film 120 to cover the substrate formation regions 120A to 120F. Flexible printed circuit boards 107A to 107F are formed. At this time, the double-sided adhesive tape 123 that has straddled the substrate forming regions 120A to 120F and the discarding region 120Z is pasted on the substrate forming regions 120A to 120F, and the pasted tape on the discarding region 120Z. In addition, the reinforcing plate 124 that is in a state of being separated from each other and straddling the substrate forming regions 120A to 120F and the discarding region 120Z is also attached to the substrate forming regions 120A to 120F and the discarding region 120Z. It will be in the state where it was separated into what was glued.

It is provided to raise.

  First, the flexible printed circuit board 107A configured as described above has a first region 112a and a second region 112b that are not separated from the left side by a tool such as a knife or scissors. The second region 112b and the third region 112c are separated from the left side by cutting with a tool a portion that is not separated from the right side by the slit 113b, leaving a predetermined distance from to the tear prevention hole 109a. The third region 112c and the fourth region 112d are separated from the right side by cutting with a tool a portion that is not separated by the slit 113c from the left side, leaving a predetermined distance to the tear prevention hole 109b. Separated leaving a predetermined distance to the prevention hole 109a It is. Then, the flexible printed circuit board 107A is formed by silk printing on the cover film 121 in the first region 112a to the fourth region 112d described above, and the valley fold lines 110a to 110d indicating valley folds and the mountain fold lines 111a to 111a indicating mountain folds. When folded according to 111d, the folded portion is bonded by the double-sided adhesive tape 123 described above, and the first region 112a to the fourth region 112d are connected to each other to form a belt-like shape longer than one side of the standard rectangular base film 120. The flexible printed circuit board 107A is formed, and the copper foil pattern constituting the lighting circuit of the light emitting diodes 108a to 108k is formed continuously on the strip-shaped flexible printed circuit board 107A. Further, by being folded along the valley fold lines 110a to 110d and the mountain fold lines 111a to 111d, the light emitting diodes 108a and 108b surface-mounted on the first region 112a and the light emitting diodes 108c to 108e surface mounted on the second region 112b. The light-emitting diodes 108f to 108h surface-mounted on the third region 112c and the light-emitting diodes 108i to 108k surface-mounted on the fourth region 112d become a long flexible printed circuit board 107A arranged on the same straight line. .

  As described above, even when the belt-like flexible printed circuit board 107 is manufactured, a fixed-size rectangular base film 120 that can be mounted on a general-purpose mounting machine can be used. Therefore, even when manufacturing the strip-shaped flexible printed circuit board 107 longer than one side of the standard rectangular base film 120, the light emitting diode 108 can be automatically mounted by a general-purpose mounting machine and used as a decoration effect.

  Further, even when the belt-like flexible printed circuit board 107 is manufactured, since a general-purpose mounting machine can be used, the light-emitting diode 108 does not need to be mounted manually, and the manufacturing efficiency does not decrease. .

  Here, the major difference between the second flexible printed circuit board 107 and the first flexible printed circuit board 105 will be described. The second flexible printed circuit board 107 and the first flexible printed circuit board 105 are formed to have different lengths. The first flexible printed circuit board 105 is formed so as to be longer than the second flexible printed circuit board 107. For this reason, the size of the base film 120 of the second flexible printed circuit board 107 is different from the size of the base film 125 of the first flexible printed circuit board 105. In the present embodiment, the size of the base film 125 of the second flexible printed circuit board 107 is a square of 250 mm in length and 250 mm in width, whereas the size of the base film 125 of the first flexible printed circuit board 105 is 250 mm in length and width. It is a 290 mm rectangle. Therefore, the size of the cover film 126 covering the mounting surface of the base film 125 and the size of the cover film 127 covering the back surface of the base film 125 are the same as the size of the cover film 121 covering the mounting surface of the second flexible printed circuit board 107 and the second size. It is larger than the size of the cover film 122 that covers the back surface of the flexible printed circuit board 107 (see FIGS. 27 and 28). Note that, on the left side and the right side of the cover films 126 and 127, the attachment marks 126a and 127a for attaching the double-sided adhesive tape to the portion where the first flexible printed circuit board 105 is folded are silk-printed (see FIG. 27 and FIG. 27). (See FIG. 28).

  In the first flexible printed circuit board 105, two light-emitting diodes 106a and 106b are surface-mounted in the first region 112a, and three light-emitting diodes 106c to 106e are surface-mounted in the second region 112b. Three light-emitting diodes 106f to 106h are surface-mounted in the third region 112c, and three light-emitting diodes 106i to 106k are surface-mounted in the fourth region 112d.

  In the above-described embodiment, the mountain fold lines 111b to 111d are mountain-folded and the valley fold lines 110b to 110d are valley-folded. You may swap the folding position. Further, in the second region 112b, which is a cut band located on the lower side of the substrate forming region 120A with respect to the first region 112a along the lines perpendicular to the upper and lower sides of the substrate forming region 120A, The mountain fold line 111c and the substrate formation region 120A in the third region 112c, which is a cutting band located on the lower side of the substrate formation region 120A with respect to the second region 112b along lines perpendicular to the upper and lower sides of the formation region 120A. A mountain fold line 111d is silk-printed on the cover film 121 in a fourth region 112d, which is a cut strip located on the lower side of the substrate forming region 120A with respect to the third region 112c along a line perpendicular to the upper side and the lower side. The mountain fold line 111b is connected to the first region 112a side, the mountain fold line 111c is connected to the second region 112a side, and the mountain fold line 111d is connected. Each of three areas 112a side may be silk printing. Even in this configuration, the light-emitting diodes 108a and 108b surface-mounted on the first region 112a, the light-emitting diodes 108c to 108e surface-mounted on the second region 112b, and the light-emitting diode 108f surface-mounted on the third region 112c. 108h and the long flexible printed circuit board 107 in which the light emitting diodes 108i to 108k surface-mounted in the fourth region 112d are all arranged on the same straight line can be manufactured.

  Next, major differences between the glass unit 70 </ b> A according to the second embodiment and the glass unit 70 according to the first embodiment will be described. The glass unit 70 according to the first embodiment is hermetically sealed with a glass plate 80. A desiccant 77 for removing moisture in the space is formed on the unit frame 71, whereas the glass unit 70A according to the second embodiment does not have the desiccant 77 and is sandwiched between the glass plates 80. The inside of the space can be brightly illuminated by light emission of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 disposed so as to surround the inner space of 71, and moisture in the inner space can be exposed to the outside via the vent hole 95. It is a point to exhale. Thereby, in the glass unit 70A according to the second embodiment, when the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are turned on or blinked as effects, the temperature in the space can be increased by the heat generated by the light emission of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108. . If it does so, the surface temperature of 80 A of glass plates which clamp this space will rise by the temperature of space transmitting. Therefore, in the glass unit 70A according to the second embodiment, in addition to an effect function by turning on or blinking the light emitting diodes 106 and 108, even if water droplets adhere to the surface of the glass plate 80A in contact with the space, Since it is vaporized and discharged to the outside from the vent hole 95, it has a function of eliminating condensation at an early stage.

  In addition, since the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 disposed so as to surround the inner space of the unit frame 71 sandwiched by the glass plate 80 can illuminate the interior of the space brightly, for example, wooden In the game board 4 (see FIG. 34) using the veneer board 200, the entire decoration cell attached to the game area 205 can be brightly illuminated, and a panel game board made of a transparent synthetic resin board (for example, a transparent acrylic board). 4. When decorating the game area 205 by emitting a plurality of lamps from the back of the acrylic board to the front of the pachinko gaming machine 1, that is, toward the player side, the rear side of the game ball flowing down the game area 205 is Even if the front side of the game ball is shaded by the light emitted from the lamp, the light emitted from the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 It is possible to illuminate the side, it is possible to show the game ball bright clean to the player. For the same reason, the entire obstacle nail including the head of the obstacle nail can be seen brightly and clearly.

  Note that two flexible printed boards 107 and 107 that are electrically connected to the relay board 100 are inserted into the grooves 82 along the inner circumferential surface of the unit frame 71 except for the lower right portion. However, in the vicinity of the lower right of the unit frame 71, there is an indicator or lamp provided on the game board for displaying the progress of the game (a symbol indicator such as a special symbol indicator or a normal symbol indicator shown in FIG. 46). 614, a function display board 613 (see FIG. 46) on which a symbol storage lamp 615 for displaying the allowable number of times of variation of the symbol display and a status display lamp 616 for displaying a gaming state such as probability change are collectively mounted. Since a function display device (not shown) is arranged, the display contents of the function display device are displayed by light emission of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 surface-mounted on the flexible printed circuit boards 107 and 107. This is to prevent the skill person is less likely to be visible.

[1-2-2. Handle device]
Next, the handle device 46 attached to the lower portion of the door frame 5 will be described mainly with reference to FIGS. 1, 2, 6, 7, and 30. The handle device 46 is assembled to an operation handle portion 47 having a rotation operation member 48 provided on the lower front surface of the door frame 5 on the open side, and the operation handle portion 47 assembled to the back surface of the door frame 5 corresponding to the operation handle portion 47. And a joint unit 49 that is linked to a rotating shaft that rotates in response to the rotating operation of the rotating operation member 48 and changes the rotational motion of the rotating shaft into a sliding motion.

  First, as shown in FIG. 1, the operation handle 47 is projected from a decorative plate (for example, a decorative plate that is also used as an outer component plate of the storage tray 36) that constitutes the front surface of the door frame 5. It is inserted and fixed in a cylindrical handle support cylinder. As shown in FIG. 5, the handle support cylinder portion is formed so as to be inclined outward (right side) in a plan view as viewed from above the pachinko gaming machine 1, so that the handle support cylinder portion is inserted and fixed to the handle support cylinder portion. The operation handle portion 47 is inclined outward in plan view (in other words, with respect to a line orthogonal to the front vertical plane of the pachinko gaming machine 1 so that its tip end faces the outside of the pachinko gaming machine. To be attached and fixed to the door frame 5. Thus, by tilting the operation handle portion 47 outward in a plan view, there is an advantage that the player can easily grasp the operation handle portion 47 and does not feel uncomfortable in the rotation operation and can easily perform the rotation operation. In this embodiment, even if the operation handle portion 47 is installed at an inclination, the rotational motion of the rotation shaft of the operation handle portion 47 can be smoothly transmitted to adjust the resilience of the ball hitting device 250. Structure is adopted. After the operation handle portion 47 is inserted into the handle support tube portion, the handle support tube portion and the operation handle portion 47 are connected with a screw or the like so that the operation handle portion 47 cannot be pulled out from the handle support tube portion. .

  Further, the operation handle 47 has a touch switch 628 (see FIG. 46) provided in close contact with the rotation operation member 48 and a single function for stopping or firing the hit ball by the player's operation. A firing stop switch 629 (see FIG. 46) is provided. Then, the wiring from the touch switch 628 and the firing stop switch 629 is led to the back surface of the door frame 5 and connected to the handle relay terminal plate 627 (see FIG. 46) attached to the side of the joint unit 49. Yes. The wiring from the handle relay terminal plate 627 is attached along the lower reinforcing plate 55 described above, and is electrically connected to a payout control board 603 (see FIG. 46) described later. Further, a switch contact projection 87 is provided outside the shaft fitting hole 86 of the rotation operation member 48. When the rotation operation member 48 is in the original position, the firing stop switch 629 is turned OFF to rotate When the operation member 48 is turned by the player, the firing stop switch 629 is turned on. Further, since a single button (not shown) provided in the vicinity of the rotation operation member 48 can be swung while the firing stop switch 629 is ON, by pressing the single button, the firing stop switch 629 is pressed. Can be turned off. It should be noted that the outer peripheral surface of the rotation operation member 48 is conductively plated, and the touch switch 628 detects contact when the player contacts the rotation operation member 48. Then, when the player rotates the rotation operation member 48 and the firing stop switch 629 is turned on and the touch switch 628 detects contact, a firing motor 617 (see FIG. 46) described later of the ball striking device 250. Is driven to rotate.

  Next, the joint unit 49, which is the other component of the handle device 46 connected to the operation handle portion 47, will be briefly described with reference to FIG. The joint unit 49 is configured so that the slide projecting piece 50 of the joint unit 49 slides in the left-right direction via a link mechanism such as a cam by rotating the rotation operation member 48 of the operation handle portion 47. The slide projecting piece 50 is formed in a thin plate shape, and the traveling direction at the time of sliding is an inclined side.

  Thus, when the player rotates the rotation operation member 48 of the operation handle portion 47, the rotation shaft rotates, and the slide protrusion 50 moves in one direction via a link mechanism such as a cam (FIG. 30). In this case, it slides in the right direction in the figure. Then, the slide movement of the slide projecting piece 50 of the joint unit 49 is transmitted to the slide rod 258 of the hitting ball launching device 250 to adjust the tension of the biasing spring 257 (see FIG. 36) of the hitting ball launching device 250, thereby hitting the ball. The resilience of the hit ball desired by the player can be obtained by adjusting the strength of the urging force of the heel 252. The relationship between the handle device 90 and the ball hitting device 250 will be described in detail after the ball hitting device 250 is described.

This will be described with reference to the drawings.

  First, with reference to FIGS. 31 to 33, the main body frame 3 itself on which the above-described various components are mounted will be described. FIG. 31 is a perspective view seen from the back of the main body frame 3 before the parts are attached, FIG. 32 is a perspective view seen from the front of the main body frame 3 to which the parts are attached, and FIG. 6 is a perspective view of the main body frame 3 viewed from the back.

  In FIG. 32, shafts for attaching an upper shaft support bracket 152 and a lower shaft support bracket 158 (both see FIG. 32) for opening and closing the main body frame 3 to the outer frame 2 on one side of the main body frame 3 are shown. In the state where the bracket mounting step portions 150 and 151 are formed and the upper shaft bracket 152 and the lower shaft bracket 158 are mounted on the shaft bracket mounting step portions 150 and 151, the upper side and the side sides of the main body frame 3 are the upper side. The upper and side sides of the shaft support bracket 152 are substantially flush with each other, and the lower side and side sides of the main body frame 3 are substantially flush with the lower side and side sides of the lower shaft support fitting 158. Here, the upper shaft support bracket 152 and the lower shaft support bracket 158 will be described in more detail. The upper shaft support bracket 152 has a mounting portion on the back surface of the main body frame 3, and its upper end protrudes forward. A shaft support pin 153 is erected and fixed on the upper surface protruding to the side, and a door shaft support hole 154 is formed on the side of the shaft pin 153. On the other hand, the lower shaft support fitting 158 has an attachment portion on the back surface of the main body frame 3 and two support plates 155 and 156 are integrally projected on the lower end side and slightly above. The lower support plate 155 constitutes a frame support plate 155 for supporting the main body frame 3 on the lower support fitting 155 of the outer frame 2, and the upper support plate 156 is provided on the door frame 5. A door support plate 156 for supporting the lower opening / closing metal fitting 52 on the main body frame 3 is constituted. Therefore, a shaft support hole (not shown) for inserting the support protrusion 21 of the lower support bracket 18 of the outer frame 2 is formed in the frame support plate 155, and the lower opening / closing bracket 52 of the door frame 5 is formed in the door support plate 156. A shaft support hole 157 for inserting a projecting shaft pin (not shown) is formed.

  By the way, the main body frame 3 is formed in a rectangular shape when viewed from the front, and about 3/4 of the upper part thereof is a game board installation recess 159 for installing the game board 4 (see FIG. 32). A slightly recessed area below the game board installation recess 159 is a plate portion 160. First, the structure of the board part 160 is demonstrated with reference to FIG.31 and FIG.32. The upper surface of the plate part 160 is a game board placement part 161 for placing the game board 4, and the game board 4 is placed on the placement part 161 in the approximate center of the game board placement part 161. A passage support protrusion 162 is provided to support the lower surface of the out port 206 (see FIG. 34) formed in the game board 4 when placed.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 32, the firing rail 163 is screwed and fixed from the central portion of the front surface of the plate portion 160 toward the end portion on the open side. In addition, a rail connection member 164 protrudes from the front surface of the plate portion 160 corresponding to the tip position of the launch rail 163, and when the game board 4 is installed in the game board installation recess 159, the outer sliding of the game board 4 occurs. It is adjacent to the connecting passage 209 (see FIG. 34) which is the downstream end of the surface 202. In addition, an elliptical game board fixture 165 for fixing the lower part of the game board 4 is rotatably fixed to a side position of the rail connection member 164 (position opposite to the firing rail 163). . That is, the game board fixture 165 rotates clockwise in a state where the game board 4 is placed on the game board placement portion 161 and presses the game board fixture 165 against the front surface of the game board 4 to play the game. The board 4 is fixed. Moreover, when removing a game board, it can carry out simply by turning the game board fixing tool 165 counterclockwise and removing.

  Further, the lower part on the open side of the plate part 160 is formed with a rectangular parallelepiped launching device mounting portion 166 that protrudes in a bulging shape toward the front side (which is concave when viewed from the back side). The hitting ball launcher 250 is fixed to the mounting portion 166 from the back surface of the main body frame 3. On the front wall portion of the launcher mounting portion 166, a handle connection window 168 is formed in which a slide member (not shown) associated with the slide protrusion 50 of the joint unit 49 described above is accommodated. In addition, a cylinder lock through hole 167 (see FIG. 31) through which the cylinder lock 404 of the lock device 400 passes is formed in the front surface of the obliquely upper plate portion 160 on the open end side of the launcher mounting portion 166.

  On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 31, a spherical discharge passage 169 extending from the upper part on the shaft support side toward the center part of the plate part 160 and then downward is formed on the back surface of the plate part 160. . This ball discharge passage 169 is for discharging game balls discharged from a ball connection passage 377 (see FIG. 32), which will be described later, from below the pachinko gaming machine 1 to the inside of the island. Further, a cylindrical guide projection 170 is provided rearwardly above the launching device mounting portion 166, and a guide hole 481 (see FIG. 45) of the substrate unit 450 described later is inserted into the guide projection 170. This facilitates the mounting of the substrate unit 450. Further, mounting holes 171 for mounting the board unit 450 with screws are formed on the left and right and up and down of the plate part 160, and the mounting pieces 469 of the board unit 450 are made to correspond to the mounting holes 171 and fastened with screws. Further, a launcher mounting boss 173 for mounting the hitting ball launcher 250 projects rearwardly inside the concave shape of the launcher mounting portion 166, and further, the main body frame 3 is provided at the lowermost end on the open side. When the frame is closed with respect to the outer frame 2, the guide protrusion 172 having a tapered tip and a vertically long shape is directed rearward in order to guide the closing operation of the main body frame 3 while abutting the upper surface of the lower front cover plate 6. Projected.

  In addition to the configuration described above, the plate portion 160 is formed with a ball extraction connection opening 174 that is an opening at the upstream end of the ball extraction discharge passage 169 on the upper surface of the end portion on the shaft support side, as shown in FIG. Yes. The downstream end of the ball removal connection passage 377 is connected to the ball removal connection opening 174. Further, the portion adjacent to the ball-opening connection opening 174 is horizontal so that a full unit mounting portion 175 for mounting a full unit 380 (see FIG. 32), which will be described in detail later, is orthogonal to the plate portion 160. A unit engagement groove 176 that engages with the engagement piece 386 (see FIG. 42) of the full unit 380 is formed in the front portion of the full unit mounting portion 175. Further, as shown in FIG. 32, an outlet for blocking a prize ball discharged from the outlet 384 of the full tank unit 380 when the door frame 5 is opened is provided on the front surface of the plate part 160 in front of the full unit mounting part 175. An opening / closing device 390 is provided. Although the outlet opening / closing device 390 will not be described in detail, when the door frame 5 is closed, the opening / closing plate is lowered by a lever that contacts the back surface of the door frame 5, but the door frame 5 is opened. Then, the contact with the lever disappears, so that the opening / closing plate rises and closes the outlet 384. For this reason, even when the door frame 5 is opened, the prize balls stored in the full tank unit 380 do not fall down from the outlet 384.

  Next, the structure of the game board installation recessed part 159 is demonstrated. As shown in FIG. 32, the game board installation recess 159 has a front-facing saddle face portion that does not accommodate the game board 4 in a part of the upper side and the open side, Although nothing is formed, door hook holes 186 through which the door frame hook portion 405 of the lock device 400 penetrates are formed in the upper side, the lower side, and the lower side on the open side. In other words, the lock device 400 is fixed to the back surface of the heel surface portion on the open side.

  Therefore, the game board installation recess 159 is formed by the stepped side wall 180 provided around the inner side surface on the pivot support side and the upper side portion and the open side surface portion on the open side to the left and right sides and the upper side of the main body frame 3. It is formed in the concave shape in which the rear part of was enclosed. The step-shaped side wall 180 is formed so that the upper side and the right side (side on the shaft support side) extend substantially straight backward with a slight step when viewed from the back, while the left side (open side side) (Side) is formed in an inclined step shape (see FIG. 5) that is inclined inwardly toward the rear. This is because the rear end of the stepped side wall 180 is the side frame of the outer frame 2 when the main body frame 3 is opened when the stepped side wall 180 on the left side (open side) is straightly formed rearward. Since there is a case where the plate 13 abuts against the inner surface of the plate 13 and cannot be opened smoothly, the stepped side wall 180 on the open side can be opened smoothly by making it inwardly inclined. At the same time, the locking device 400 is attached along the front end side of the step-like side wall 180 on the open side, and the attachment is provided in the middle of the step-like side wall 180 (the rear surface of the front first step). Since the lock attaching hole 184 (see FIG. 31) is used, the open side stepped side wall 180 is formed in an inclined step shape in order to form the lock attaching hole 184. Furthermore, the step size of the step-shaped side wall 180 is also formed with a somewhat large step because the step at the position where the lock mounting hole 184 is formed needs to abut the periphery of the back surface of the game board 4 described later. However, the step behind it is a very small step. Of course, the stepped side wall 180 may be formed as a continuous inclined side wall without forming a step.

  In the case of the present embodiment, the stepped side wall 180 described above is about 135 mm in four steps. In particular, the step up to the first step of the step-shaped side wall 180 corresponds to the thickness of the game board 4 and is behind the various gaming devices provided in the game board 4 in the space formed by the remaining three steps. The protruding portion is accommodated. That is, the stepped side wall 180 constitutes a front side wall in which the first stage has a depth dimension substantially the same as the thickness of the game board 4, and the second to fourth stages are provided in the game board 4. The rear side wall which accommodates the back protrusion part of a game device is comprised. In particular, in the case of the present embodiment, as shown in FIG. It is formed so as to be at substantially the same position as the rear wall 302 of the storage portion for storing the game balls of the prize ball tank 300 fixed to the upper portion. Thereby, since the size of the space formed by the second to fourth stepped side wall 180 is secured to a position corresponding to the periphery of the game board 4, for example, the game board 4 Even when a gaming device having a liquid crystal display screen occupying almost the entire area is attached, the rearward protruding portion of such a gaming device can be easily accommodated.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 31, a left rear wall 181, an upper rear wall 182 and a right rear wall 183 are respectively formed on the left side, the upper side and the right side when viewed from the rear side from the rear end side of the stepped side wall 180. It protrudes toward the inside so as to be parallel to the front side. The right rear wall 183 is configured such that a ball passage unit 330 and a prize ball unit 350 (to be described later) constituting a ball payout mechanism are detachably attached to the rear surface of the right rear wall 183. Therefore, it is sufficient for the protrusion width to the inner side of the right rear wall 183 (the rear opening 196 side) to have a width for attaching the ball path unit 330 and the prize ball unit 350. Moreover, since the tank rail member 320 is attached to the rear surface of the upper rear wall 182, the lower end side thereof is formed in an inclined shape. Accordingly, it is sufficient that the width of the tank rail member 320 mounted in an inclined manner is sufficient for the projecting width to the inside (the rear opening 196 side) of the upper rear wall 182. Furthermore, a cover body supporting cylinder portion 195 that pivotally supports a cover body 500 described later is formed on the rear surface of the right rear wall 914. Accordingly, it is sufficient that the protrusion width to the inner side of the right rear wall 194 (the rear opening 196 side) has a width dimension that forms the cover body support cylinder 195.

  As described above, the front surfaces of the left rear wall 181, the upper rear wall 182, and the right rear wall 183 that protrude inward from the rear end side of the step-shaped side wall 180 are formed in a flat plate shape. Since this corresponds to the peripheral part of the game board 4, it is formed by the stepped side walls 180 of the second to fourth stages up to the position corresponding to the peripheral part of the game board 4 as described above. Since the size of the space is secured, for example, even when a gaming device is installed in which the liquid crystal display screen occupies almost the entire area of the gaming board 4, the rearward protruding portion of such a gaming device can be easily stored. Is something that can be done. The inside of the left rear wall 181, the upper rear wall 182 and the right rear wall 183 is a rear opening 196, and the rear opening 196 is closed so as to be opened and closed by a cover body 500 described later. .

  Next, a more detailed configuration of the game board installation recess 159 will be described. As described above, the door hook hole 186 through which the door frame hook portion 405 of the lock device 400 penetrates is opened on the flat portion on the open side. There are three places in the middle and bottom, but a lock locking hole 185 (see FIG. 31) into which a locking projection 403 (to be described later) of the lock device 400 is engaged further above and below the upper and lower door hook holes 186. Is formed. Further, the locking device 400 is attached along the opening-side stepped side wall 180, and a lock mounting hole 184 (see FIG. 31) for performing the mounting with a screw is provided after the first step of the stepped side wall 180. It is formed at the top and middle of the end. In addition, the fixing of the locking device 400 with a screw is not limited to the upper part and the middle part, but is fixed with a screw in correspondence with a locking mounting hole (not shown) formed near the upper part of the cylinder lock through hole 167. Thus, the lower part of the lock device 400 is also attached.

A guide arc projection 189 is formed in contact with the stepped side wall 180, and a relief recess 188 is formed at the center of the rear end side of the stepped side wall 180 to communicate with a notch 303 of the prize ball tank 300 described later. A tank mounting groove 187 is formed on a vertical surface connecting the step and the second step. When the mounting flange 309 of the prize ball tank 300 is attached to the tank attachment groove 187, as shown in FIG. When the ball pressure of the game ball stored in the ball increases, the pressure is released so that the ball does not clog. Further, when the prize ball tank 300 is attached to the main body frame 3, the rear wall 302 on the back side substantially coincides (see FIG. 5) when viewed from the front side of the prize ball tank 300 in plan view. The guide arc protrusion 189 described above lifts the main body frame 3 by bringing the upper side of the main body frame 3 into contact with the inner peripheral surface of the upper frame plate 10 of the outer frame 2, and the lower front cover. It is also for preventing a fraud such as forming a gap between the plate 6 and inserting a fraudulent instrument through the gap.

  In addition, a rail locking groove 190 for attaching the tank rail member 320 is formed along the opening edge of the rear opening 196 on the upper rear wall 182 described above, and the rear edge of the stepped side wall 180 is A rail locking groove 191 is formed in a bent portion of the upper rear wall 182. The tank rail member 320 can be attached to the main body frame 3 by locking the locking protrusions 326 and 327 (see FIG. 39) of the tank rail member 320 to the rail locking grooves 190 and 191. Further, a rail latching elastic piece 192 is formed on the upper portion of the upper rear wall 182 corresponding to the downstream side when the tank rail member 320 is attached, and the tank rail member 320 is locked in the rail locking grooves 190 and 191. When the protruding pieces 326 and 327 are locked and the tank rail member 320 is attached to the main body frame 3, the rail latching elastic piece 192 is provided at the upper end on the downstream side of the tank rail member 320 so that the locked state is not released. It comes in contact from above. When the tank rail member 320 is removed, the rail rail elastic member 192 is pressed backward, and then the tank rail member is released to release the locking state between the rail locking grooves 190 and 191 and the locking protrusions 326 and 327. What is necessary is just to lift 320 upwards.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 31, vertical standing walls 193 are erected on the right rear wall 183 at both right and left ends on the right rear wall 183, and the ball passage unit 330 and the prize ball unit 350 are interposed between the standing walls 193. And are attached. However, the standing wall 193 on the rear opening 196 side is formed only up to a slightly upper portion of the notch formed below the right rear wall 183, whereas the opposite standing wall 193 is a side of the right rear wall 183. It is formed in an L shape from the bottom to the bottom.

  In addition, when the ball passage unit 330 is mounted from the most upstream part between the left and right standing walls 193 to slightly above the middle flow part, a ball guide corresponding to the ball drop passage 332 (see FIG. 39) of the ball passage unit 330.

[1-5. Hitting ball launcher]
The ball striking device 250 will be described with reference to FIG. FIG. 36 is an overall perspective view (A) of the ball striking device 250 and a perspective view (B) with the firing motor portion removed. In the drawing, a hitting ball launching device 250 pivotally supports a hitting ball rod 252 on a shooting base frame 251 and gives a reciprocating rotation to the hitting ball rod 252 (not shown in FIG. 36, but a motor cover). 270. However, the biasing force of the biasing spring 257 is attached to the firing base frame 251 and applies a biasing force for returning to the ball striking rod 252. The slide base 258 and the slide member 271 for adjusting the position are provided on the firing base frame 251.

  More specifically, the firing base frame 251 is molded into a horizontally long rectangular shape by a synthetic resin, and a ball striking rod 252 is pivotally supported substantially at the center thereof, and the ball is hit at the upper part and the side. Rubber stopper members 266 and 267 for restricting the firing origin position of the flange 252 are attached and fixed. That is, the rubber stopper members 266 and 267 receive the impact of the hitting ball rod 252 when the hitting ball rod 252 returns to the firing origin position by the biasing force of the biasing spring 257. Further, a slide guide hole 262 having a horizontally elongated groove shape is formed in an upper part of the rear side of the launch base frame 251 (opposite the portion corresponding to the lower side of the launch rail 163), and the slide member 271 is provided below the slide guide hole 262. It is stored and arranged to be movable in the left-right direction. The slide guide hole 262 guides the slide movement of the slide rod 258 by inserting a guide locking piece 263 projecting from the rear end upper portion of the slide rod 258 described later. Note that the front portion of the slide rod 258 is also guided to slide in the left-right direction, although not shown.

  In addition, a supply rocking piece 62 provided on the upper side of the launch base frame 251 facing the hitting ball supply port 61 on the downstream side of the storage tray 36 of the door frame 5 on the side corresponding to the hitting ball rod 252. Is provided on the swinging seat, and the operating piece 268 swings the supply swinging piece 62 in conjunction with the reciprocating motion of the hitting ball 252 and swings the supply swinging piece 62. The hit balls that flow out of the hit ball supply port 61 by the moving operation are supplied one by one to the launch position of the launch rail 163. Further, on the firing base frame 251, motor mounting bosses 269 for fixing a motor cover 270 incorporating a firing motor 617 are protruded in a total of three locations, two at the rear lower part and one at the front upper part. In addition, a swing piece 264 connected to the slide member 271 for sliding the slide rod 258 is provided with its lower end pivotally supported.

  In order to increase the rigidity of the hit ball launcher 250, the metal plate 261 is attached to the launch base frame 251 so as to be in close contact therewith. Further, the swinging piece 264 is formed in a vertically long bowl shape, and a connecting hole having a vertically long hole shape is formed in the middle of which the connecting convex portion of the slide member 271 is inserted. Therefore, the upper portion of the swing piece 264 swings around the lower end as the slide member 271 slides.

  In addition, a horizontally long bowl-shaped slide bar 258 is attached to the upper front surface of the metal plate 261 so as to be slidable in the left-right direction. That is, the L-shaped guide locking piece 263 protruding from the rear upper part of the slide rod 258 is engaged with the slide guide hole 262 of the metal plate 261 so that the slide rod 258 is fired through the metal plate 261. The base frame 251 is slidably mounted. The slide rod 258 has a contacted portion 260 that contacts the contact portion 265 of the swing piece 264 described above at one end (rear end), and one end of the biasing spring 257 at the other end (front end). A spring locking portion 259 is provided to hang the locking ring.

  Further, the lower end portion of the hitting ball rod 252 is fixed to the bearing shaft of the hitting ball rod 252 and at the same time, the base plate 254 is fixed. An operating piece contact portion (not shown) that contacts the operating piece 268 protrudes from the front back surface side of the base plate 254, and a locking ring at the other end of the biasing spring 257 is hooked on the front front surface. A spring engaging portion 256 for projecting is provided, and a motor abutting projecting piece 255 for engaging with and disengaging from a motor cam (not shown) of the firing motor 617 is further provided on the rear front surface thereof. A synthetic resin tip 253 is fixed to the upper end of the hitting ball 252, and this tip 253 faces the firing position at the lower end of the firing rail 163.

  On the other hand, the firing motor 617 housed in the motor cover 270 is attached to the motor mounting boss 269 of the firing base frame 251 described above. More specifically, as shown in FIG. 36 (B), the motor cover 270 includes a cylindrical portion formed so as to accommodate the firing motor 617 therein, and is enlarged in front of the cylindrical portion to attach the motor. An attachment portion in which an attachment fixing hole for attachment to the boss 269 is formed, and a motor cam is fixed to the tip of the motor shaft of the firing motor 617 housed in the cylindrical portion. Further, the motor cam is formed in a generally adopted ball shape, and reciprocates the striking ball 252 while intermittently engaging and disengaging with the motor contact protrusion 255 as the firing motor 617 rotates. When the motor cover 270 is attached to the motor attachment boss 269, as shown in FIG. 36 (A), the main structure of the hitting ball launcher 250 is covered as seen from the rear surface.

  The relationship of adjusting the strength of the urging spring 257 of the slide member 271 and the hitting ball launching device 250 will be described. When the slide member 271 is in the initial position where it does not move, the swing piece 264 connected to the slide member 271 is It is almost vertical. For this reason, the slide rod 258 that is in contact with the swing piece 264 is also biased in one direction by the biasing force of the bias spring 257, and the contact portion 265 of the swing piece 264 and the slide rod 258 are in contact with each other. The portion 260 is in contact with the portion 260. In this state, since the tension of the biasing spring 257 is extremely weak, even if the striking ball 252 is reciprocatingly rotated following the rotation of the firing motor 617, the returning force of the striking ball 252 is weak, and the hit ball at the firing position is not elastic. Even if issued, the game area 205 of the game board 4 is not reached.

  On the other hand, when the slide member 271 is slid from the initial position, the swing piece 264 swings and tilts with the lower end as an axis. Slide in the other direction. Then, a tension is gradually applied to the urging spring 257 that is locked to the spring locking portion 259 of the slide rod 258, and the extended state is reached. In this state, since a strong tension is applied to the biasing spring 257, the return force of the hitting ball rod 252 when the hitting ball rod 252 is reciprocally rotated following the rotation of the shooting motor 617 is increased, and the firing position is set. A hit ball is strongly shot and reaches the game area 205 of the game board 4. The strength of the hitting ball can be adjusted according to the sliding amount of the sliding member 271.

  As described above, by moving the slide member 271, it is possible to adjust the resilience by the hitting ball launching device 250, but this movement of the slide member 271 is performed by rotating the operation handle portion 47 of the handle device 46 described above. This is interlocked with the movement of the slide protrusion 50 of the joint unit 49 that moves in accordance with the turning operation of the moving operation member 48. This point will be described with reference to FIG.

  As described above, by rotating the rotation operation member 48 of the operation handle portion 47 of the handle device 46, the slide projecting piece 50 of the joint unit 49 slides. When the door frame 5 is closed with respect to the main body frame 3, the slide projecting piece 50 penetrates the handle connection window 168 formed in the launcher mounting portion 166 of the main body frame 5 and is inserted into the rear surface of the slide member 271. It has come to be. In this insertion state, when the slide protrusion 50 slides in one direction, the slide member 271 also slides in the same direction. As the slide member 271 slides, the slide rod 258 also slides, so that the biasing force of the biasing spring 257 can be adjusted. That is, the resilience of the hit ball of the hitting ball launching device 250 can be adjusted by rotating the turning operation member 48 of the handle device 46.

  By the way, in this embodiment, since the handle device 46 is provided on the door frame 5 and the hitting ball launching device 250 is provided on the main body frame 3, each time the door frame 5 is opened and closed, the sliding protrusion 50 of the handle device 46 is provided. And the slide member 271 of the ball striking device 250 are linked or separated. However, in the present embodiment, as described above, by closing the door frame 5 with respect to the main body frame 3, the slide protrusion 50 is automatically inserted into the rear surface of the slide member 271, and the handle device 46 and the hit ball When the door frame 5 is opened with respect to the main body frame 3 in cooperation with the launching device 250, the slide projecting piece 50 moves away from the inside of the rear surface of the slide member 271, and the handle device 46 and the hitting ball launching device 250 are separated. Since they can be separated, the handle device 46 and the ball striking device 250 can be linked and separated very easily as the door frame 5 is opened and closed.

FIG. 37 is a perspective view (A), a plan view (B), and a side view (C) of the prize ball tank 300. As described above, the prize ball tank 300 is detachably attached to the tank attachment groove 187 (see FIG. 31) formed in the upper part of the back surface of the main body frame 3. Thus, the prize ball tank 300 is formed in a rectangular box shape, and when viewed from the front side of the pachinko gaming machine 1, a notch 303 is formed in the front wall 301, and the bottom surface is inclined from one to the other. It is formed by a first inclined bottom surface 304 and a second inclined bottom surface 305 that is inclined toward a discharge port 306 described below. In addition, a discharge port 306 is formed at the inclined lower end of the second inclined bottom surface 305, and this discharge port 306 projects outward from the rear wall 302 of the prize ball tank 300 when viewed from the front side of the pachinko gaming machine 1. It is formed to do. In addition, on both outer sides of the front wall 301 of the prize ball tank 300, attachment flanges 309 that engage with the tank attachment groove 187 are formed, and the main body frame 3 is disposed on the back side of the bottom surface of the prize ball tank 300. Placement contact pieces 307 and 308 that are placed and contacted with the stepped side wall 180 are projected, and further, a ball leveling member 321 described later is attached to the lower part of the rear surface wall 302 on the upstream side of the prize ball tank 300. The ball leveling attachment shaft 311 is projected. An overflow prevention member 310 for preventing the game ball from jumping is detachably attached to the rear wall 302 and the upstream side wall of the prize ball tank 300 excluding the discharge port 306.

  In the prize ball tank 300 configured as described above, the mounting flange 309 is attached to the tank mounting groove 187 of the main body frame 3 so as to be inserted from above, and the mounting contact pieces 307 and 308 are attached to the main body frame 3. The stepped side wall 180 is brought into contact. As a result, the prize ball tank 300 is placed and attached to the upper part on the back side of the main body frame 3. In this attached state, as shown in FIG. 33, the notch 303 and the main body frame 3 of the front wall 301 are provided. A relief recess 188 formed on the back surface of the tank rail communicates with each other, and as shown in FIG. 5, the discharge port 306 faces an upstream end portion of a tank rail member 320 described below. Therefore, in the prize ball tank 300, the width in the front-rear direction of the storage portion for storing game balls (the storage space portion corresponding to the first inclined bottom surface 304 and the second inclined bottom surface 305) is the stepped side wall 180 of the main body frame 3. These are formed so as to have substantially the same width in the front-rear direction from the second stage to the fourth stage, and are placed on top of the step-shaped side walls 180. As described above, the second to fourth steps of the stepped side wall 180 of the main body frame 3 are deeply formed so as to cover the rear protruding space in the peripheral portion of the game board 4. The depth of the storage part of the prize ball tank 300 placed on the upper part of the stepped side wall 180 is shallower than that of the conventional storage tank, but the prize ball is stored and the weight increases. However, since the entire prize ball tank 300 is supported by the stepped side wall 180 of the main body frame 3, the stored game balls can be smoothly guided to the discharge port 306 without the inclined bottom surfaces 402 and 403 being deformed. it can. In addition, since the discharge port 306 is provided at a position outside the rear wall 302 of the prize ball tank 300, the flow of game balls stored in the storage unit flows outward from the second inclined bottom surface 305. It is configured. For this reason, as compared with the prize ball tank in which an opening is provided in a part of the inclined bottom surface as a discharge port as in the prior art, a ball break-up portion for eliminating ball clogging is not formed in the storage portion in the vicinity of the discharge port. A structure in which ball clogging hardly occurs can be obtained.

[1-7. Tank rail member]
The tank rail member 320 disposed below the prize ball tank 300 will be described with reference mainly to FIGS. FIG. 38 is a perspective view of the relationship between the prize ball tank 300, the tank rail member 320, the ball passage unit 330, the prize ball unit 350, and the full tank unit 380 as seen from the back side of the pachinko gaming machine 1. These are perspective views seen from the front side of the pachinko gaming machine 1 showing the relationship among the prize ball tank 300, the tank rail member 320, the ball passage unit 330, the prize ball unit 350, and the full tank unit 380.

  As described above, the tank rail member 320 is detachably attached to the rail locking grooves 190 and 191 (see FIG. 31) of the upper rear wall 182 of the main body frame 3. Therefore, the tank rail member 320 is provided with a plurality of locking projections 326 inserted from above into the rail locking groove 190 on the left and right sides and the lower side of the side surface on the rear surface side, and the upper side of the rear surface side surface. At the center, a hook-shaped locking protrusion 327 is provided so as to be hooked on the rail locking groove 191 from above. Thus, the tank rail member 320 is formed in a slanted bowl shape having an open upper surface, the upper surface of the upstream end faces the discharge port 306 of the prize ball tank 300, and the lower surface of the downstream end of the tank rail member 320 forms a ball passage unit 330 described in detail later. I'm here. Further, as shown in FIG. 5, the inside of the tank rail member 320 is a passage through which game balls flow down in two rows by a partition wall 328.

  In addition, an egg-shaped sphere leveling member 321 having a weight on the slightly downstream side of the midstream region of the tank rail member 320 is swingably provided. The ball leveling member 321 is pivotally supported on the ball leveling mounting shaft 311 of the award ball tank 300 described above, and hangs down into the respective passages of the two rows of the tank rail members 320. When the game balls flowing down the passages flow down in a plurality of stages in the vertical direction, the flow is rectified so as to be one stage. Further, the upper surface of the tank rail member 320 on the downstream side from the installation position of the ball leveling member 321 is covered with a ball pressing plate 322. The ball holding plate 322 is formed in an inclined arc shape so that the game ball that has not been made one stage by the ball leveling member 321 is forced to one stage. Further, a pair of alignment gears 324 are rotatably supported by shaft pins 325 at the downstream end of the tank rail member 320 so as to face the respective passages. The alignment gear 324 has a plurality of teeth formed on the outer periphery thereof, and is fixed to the shaft pin 325 so that the pitch of the teeth of the pair of alignment gears 324 is shifted by a half pitch. For this reason, when the upper part of the game balls that have flowed down the respective passages of the tank rail member 320 flow down to the downstream side while meshing with the teeth of the alignment gear 324, the game balls in the two rows of passages are alternately sent one by one. become. The alignment gear 324 is covered with an arcuate gear cover 323 on the top surface.

[1-8. Ball passage unit]
The ball passage unit 330 for guiding the game balls dropped from the tank rail member 320 in a row to the prize ball unit 350 will be described mainly with reference to FIGS. 38 to 40. FIG. 38 and 39 are as described above, and FIG. 40 is an exploded perspective view showing the relationship between the main body frame 3, the ball path unit 330, and the prize ball unit 350.

  In the spherical passage unit 330, a spherical drop passage 332 is formed by a pair of bent passage walls 331 that are bent on the back surface of a substantially rectangular plate (the surface seen from the back surface is called the front surface). As shown in FIG. 40, the ball drop passage 332 is connected to the front-rear bent passage portion whose upstream is bent in the front-rear direction (depth direction when viewed from the back), and in the left-right direction (from the rear side). The left and right bent passage portions bend in the left-right direction as viewed) and the vertical passage portion that communicates with the left and right bent passage portions and is substantially vertical. In addition, a cutout portion is formed in one bent passage wall 331 constituting the vertical passage portion, and a ball breakage detecting piece 334 whose upper end is pivotally supported by a support shaft is swingably attached to the cutout portion. A ball break switch 333 is attached to the side of the ball break detection piece 334, and an actuator of the ball break switch 333 is in contact with the ball break detection piece 334.

  Thus, when a game ball is present in the vertical passage portion of the ball drop passage 332, the ball break detection piece 334 is pressed by the game ball present in the vertical passage portion and the actuator is pushed to turn on the ball break switch 333. However, when there is no game ball in the vertical passage due to clogging or lack of balls, the ball break detection piece 334 swings into the vertical passage, and the actuator turns the ball break switch 333 OFF. When the ball break switch 333 is turned off, rotation of a payout motor 364 of a prize ball unit 350, which will be described later, is stopped and the payout of a prize ball is stopped. Further, a cover body engaging groove 335 that engages with an engaging piece 502 (see FIG. 3) of the cover body 500 is formed in the ball path unit 330 in the middle of one side.

[1-9. Prize ball unit]
Next, the prize ball unit 350 disposed on the downstream side of the above-described ball path unit 330 will be described mainly with reference to FIGS. 38 to 41. 38 to 40 are as described above, and FIG. 41 is a rear view for explaining the relationship between the payout motor 364 and the sprocket 356 as the payout member.

  In FIG. 41, a prize ball unit 350 as a prize ball payout mechanism is a unit base body 351 in which a bent passage 353, a prize ball passage 359, and a ball removal passage 360 are formed by a pair of bent passage walls 352. And a relay board cover that covers a relay terminal board in a prize ball unit (not shown, but only “626” is shown in FIG. 46) attached to the upper surface (rear side) of the cover plate that covers the rear surface of the unit base body 351 375 (see FIG. 38) and gear groups 367, 368, and 369 and a detection disk 370 (rotation transmitting member) provided in a substantially central surface region (rear surface side region) of the cover plate covering the rear surface of the unit base body 351. Gear cover 376 (see FIG. 38). Hereinafter, these configurations will be sequentially described.

  As shown in FIG. 41, the bent passage wall 352 formed in the unit base body 351 protrudes from the center of the upper part of the unit base body 351 to the middle of the downstream side at a distance slightly larger than the diameter of the game ball. However, it is divided into right and left from the middle to the downstream side, and also serves as side walls on both sides of the unit base body 351 from the middle to the downstream end. In addition, the middle bent passage wall 352 is largely divided into left and right portions to form a distribution space 355 in which a sprocket 356 serving as a ball feed rotating body is arranged. A passage partition wall 358 is formed projecting so as to form a pair of the bent passage walls 352 divided to the left and right until the downstream end. That is, the left and right bent passage walls 352 and the passage partition wall 358 on the downstream side from the middle form two passages on the left and right from the distribution space 355, and one passage constitutes the prize ball passage 359, The other passage constitutes a ball removal passage 360. The passage partition wall 358 is also largely divided into left and right, and a motor storage space 363 for storing the payout motor 364 is formed inside the divided passage partition wall 358. That is, the payout motor 364 is housed and fixed in a motor housing space 363 that is located at a position avoiding the ball passage (bending passage 353, prize ball passage 359, ball removal passage 360) and within the depth width dimension of the ball passage. Is done. Note that the bent passage 353 is formed in a meandering shape so as to weaken the pressure applied to the sprocket 356 of the game ball that remains in the passage 353 and reaches the distribution space 355, but the upstream of the distribution space 355. An elliptical opening 354 is formed on the bottom surface on the side. The opening 354 stores small dust or the like that has entered the bent passage 353, and can collect dust or the like that is collected when the prize ball unit 350 is removed from the main body frame 3.

  Further, in the distribution space 355 described above, a sprocket 356 as a payout member having a plurality of (three in the illustrated example) recesses in which a game ball fits on the outer periphery is rotatable about the rotation shaft 357. Be placed. Further, the upper end portion of the passage partition wall 358 constituting the bottom portion of the distribution space 355 is formed in a concave arc shape along the rotation arc of the sprocket 356, and in the upstream portion of the prize ball passage 359 formed on one side thereof. A counting switch 361 is detachably mounted. The counting switch 361 is composed of a rectangular parallelepiped magnetic sensor in which a circular passage hole through which a game ball passes is formed at the tip, and an attachment portion that matches the shape of the rear end is formed by a bent passage wall 352. It can be easily attached and detached. A wiring (not shown) from the counting switch 361 is connected to the relay terminal plate 626 in the prize ball unit. Furthermore, a plurality of locking claws 362 for locking a passage cover plate (not shown) for closing the prize ball passage 359 are formed on the downstream side of the bent passage wall 352 constituting the prize ball passage 359.

  Further, a circular motor storage space 363 for storing the payout motor 364 is formed below the unit base body 351 and between the prize ball passage 359 and the ball removal passage 360. This motor storage space 363 is formed. The cylindrical main body of the payout motor 364 is accommodated in the interior of the. However, the payout motor 364 is fixed to the back side of an aluminum heat radiating plate (not shown) attached below the cover plate that covers the rear surface of the unit base body 351 by a pair of mounting pieces 365 formed on the front surface thereof. It is like that. The motor shaft 366 of the payout motor 364 passes through the shaft insertion hole formed in the aluminum heat sink while the payout motor 364 is attached to the aluminum heat sink of the cover plate that covers the rear surface of the unit base body 351. Thus, the first gear 367 is fixed. Further, by covering the rear surface side of the unit base body 351 with a cover plate that covers the rear surface of the unit base body 351 and an aluminum heat radiating plate, the bent passage 353, the prize ball passage 359, and the ball removal passage 360 are formed. The cylindrical main body portion of the payout motor 364 is also accommodated in the space in the depth width direction. Since the motor storage space 363 for storing the payout motor 364 and the distribution space 355 in which the sprocket 356 is disposed are formed in a very close positional relationship in the vertical direction, the vertical direction of the unit base body 351 is determined. The length can be shortened, and as a result, the prize ball unit 350 can be made compact.

  Next, the gears 367, 368, 369 and the detection disk 370 provided on the cover plate covering the rear surface of the unit base body 351 will be described. As described above, the tip of the motor shaft 366 of the payout motor 364 passes through the shaft insertion hole formed in the aluminum heat radiation plate of the cover plate that covers the rear surface of the unit base body 351 and covers the rear surface of the unit base body 351. It protrudes to the surface (rear surface side) of the cover plate, and a first gear 367 (drive gear, number of teeth Z1 = 30) is fixed to the protruding portion. Above the first gear 367, a second gear 368 (rotation transmission gear, number of teeth Z2 = 30) meshing with the first gear 367 is rotatably provided, and above the second gear 368, the A third gear 369 (rotation transmission gear, number of teeth Z3 = 20) that meshes with the second gear 368 is rotatably provided. Further, above the third gear 369, a detection disk 370 having a gear portion (driven gear, number of teeth Z4 = 34) meshing with the third gear 369 is rotatable on a rotating shaft 357 that supports the sprocket 356. Is provided. The rotation shaft 357 rotatably supports the sprocket 356 in the distribution space 355, and the detection disk 370 can be rotated in a space formed by a cover plate that covers the rear surface of the unit base body 351 and the gear cover 376. I support. However, since the rear end portion of the sprocket 356 is engaged with the center front surface portion of the detection disk 370, the sprocket 356 and the detection disk 370 rotate integrally around the rotation shaft 357. ing. Therefore, when the payout motor 364 is rotationally driven, the rotation is transmitted to rotate the sprocket 356 via the first gear 367, the second gear 368, the third gear 369, and the gear portion of the detection disk 370.

  Here, the rotation speed of the sprocket 356 is obtained by reducing the rotation speed of the payout motor 364 by the gear portions of the first gear 367, the second gear 368, the third gear 369, and the detection disk 370. The reduction ratio n is set to the number of teeth Z1 (= 30) of the first gear 497 / the number of teeth Z4 (= 34) of the gear portion of the detection disk 370 by calculation based on the mechanism. In the present embodiment, since the payout motor 364 is a four-phase stepping motor that rotates once in 48 steps, the payout motor 364 rotates approximately 54 steps for the sprocket 356 to rotate once. In this case, the payout motor 364 rotates 7.5 degrees (= 360 degrees / 48 steps) in one step, and the sprocket 356 takes approximately 6.6 degrees (7.5 degrees × reduction ratio n) in one step of the payout motor 364. It will rotate.

  The outer periphery of the detection disk 370 is formed to be slightly larger than the circle of the gear portion, and the outer peripheral portion protruding outward from the gear portion has the same number as the recesses of the sprocket 356 (in the illustrated case, 3) detection notches 371 are formed. The detection cutout 371 is detected by a light projection / reception type rotation angle switch 373 (rotation position detection means) provided on a sensor substrate 372 supported on the surface of a cover plate covering the rear surface of the unit base body 351 (rotation position detection means). The detection signal of the rotation angle switch 373 is transmitted to the relay terminal plate 626 in the prize ball unit via the wiring connected to the connector 374). The rotation angle switch 373 is for monitoring whether or not the sprocket 356 is rotating normally by detecting the number of detection notches 371 within a predetermined time during the payout operation. If abnormal rotation is detected by the rotation angle switch 373 (in many cases, the ball is engaged with the sprocket 356), the sprocket 356 is rotated forward and backward a predetermined number of times to eliminate the abnormal state (for example, the ball engagement state). To do. Note that the number of game balls actually paid out is detected by the counting switch 361 provided in the prize ball passage 359 and used for counting.

  Here, as described above, the detection cutouts 371 are three in the same number as the recesses of the sprocket 356, and are formed on the outer periphery of the detection disk 370 equally (every 120 degrees). The payout motor 364 rotates the sprocket 356 via the first gear 367, the second gear 368, the third gear 369, and the gear portion of the detection disk 370. The sprocket 356 rotates once by the rotation of the dispensing motor 364 about 54 steps. Therefore, the rotation between the detection notches 371 (120 degrees) of the detection disk 370 (sprocket 356) is 18 steps (= about 54) of the dispensing motor 364. Step / 3) rotation.

  The configuration of the prize ball unit 350 has been described above. The unit base body 351, the cover plate that covers the rear surface of the unit base body 351, the relay board cover 375 of the prize ball unit relay terminal board 626, and the gear cover 376 are assembled. In the state, it is positioned so that the cylindrical main body portion of the payout motor 364 is accommodated in a position below the bent passage 353 through which the game ball to be paid out is guided. In addition, the unit base body 351 includes a sprocket 356 disposed in a ball passage (bending passage 353, prize ball passage 359, ball removal passage 360) and a depth width dimension of the ball passage at a position avoiding the ball passage. A payout motor 364 housed in a motor housing space 363 formed therein, and a cover plate covering the rear surface of the unit base body 351 has a motor shaft 366 of the payout motor 364 along the non-blocking surface side. Rotation transmitting members (the first gear 367, the second and third gears 368 and 369, and the gear portion of the detection disk 370) for transmitting the rotation to the rotation shaft 357 of the sprocket 356 are provided, and the payout motor 364 and the bending passage 353 are provided. A plurality of gears provided on the rear surface of the cover plate that covers the rear surface of the unit base body 351 with the sprocket 356 as a payout member disposed in the distribution space 355. 367,368,369,370 has a connection structure to be rotated by a (gear unit). In other words, the sprocket 356 is paid out within the depth width of the ball passage (bending passage 353, prize ball passage 359, ball removal passage 360) formed between the unit base body 351 and the cover plate covering the rear surface of the unit base body 351. The unit base body 351 accommodates the rotation transmission member (the first gear 367, the second and third gears 368 and 369, and the gear portion of the detection disk 370) that houses the motor 465 and connects the sprocket 356 and the payout motor 364. Since the cover plate is provided along a predetermined width on the non-blocking surface side of the cover plate, the prize ball unit 350 is made thinner than the one in which a payout motor and a part of the sprocket are arranged outside the ball passage. be able to. In addition, such a prize ball unit 350 has a ball passage (bending passage 353, prize ball passage 359, ball removal passage 360) in the prize ball unit 350 formed in a single passage shape. Thinning is achieved. That is, unlike the conventional case in which the payout motor 364 protrudes to the front side, the rear side or the side of the prize ball unit, the prize ball is attached to the rear side of the right rear wall 183 of the main body frame 3. Any part of the unit 350 may be structured not to protrude further rearward. With this structure, in this embodiment, the rearward projection of the gaming device provided on the game board 4 is provided between the right rear wall 183 of the main body frame 3 to which the prize ball unit 350 is attached and the back surface of the game board 4. The storage space for storing the portion can be increased in the depth width direction.

[1-10. Full tank unit]
The full tank unit 380 arranged on the downstream side of the above-described prize ball unit 350 will be described mainly with reference to FIG. FIG. 42 is a perspective view showing the relationship between the prize ball unit 350 and the full tank unit 380. As described above, the full unit 380 is placed and fixed on the full unit mounting portion 175 of the main body frame 3, and has a box main body 381 formed in a box shape with an open upper surface, and the box main body 381. It is comprised from the cover body 382 which covers the upper surface of this. The box main body 381 is configured such that game balls that have flowed in from the downstream end of the prize ball passage 359 are guided into a zigzag passage and discharged from the outlet 384. A full tank swing plate (not shown) is swingably provided in the middle of the zigzag passage. The full tank switch 383 detects the swing of the full tank swing plate. A foul ball inlet 385 is formed on one side of the outlet 384. Since the foul ball inlet 385 communicates with the foul port 207 described above, the foul ball taken into the foul port 207 is taken into the full tank unit 380 from the foul ball inlet 385 and then the zigzag shaped They merge at the downstream part of the passage and return to the storage dish 36 through the outlet 384 and the prize ball outlet 59. The box main body 381 includes engagement pieces that are engaged with unit engagement grooves 176 formed in the full unit mounting portion 175 on both sides of the outlet 384 and one side of the foul ball inlet 385. 386 is projected.

  In the full tank unit 380 configured as described above, the game balls paid out from the prize ball passage 359 of the prize ball unit 350 flow down the zigzag passage inside and pass through the prize ball discharge port 59 from the outlet 384. To the storage tray 36. Further, the foul balls that have entered from the foul ball inlet 385 also merge at the downstream portion of the zigzag passage, and are led from the outlet 384 through the prize ball outlet 59 to the storage tray 36. When the prize ball is stored in the storage tray 36 and the game ball is filled in the full tank unit 380, the full tank swinging plate is swung by the pressure of the stored ball and the full tank switch 383 is turned on. And When the full tank switch 383 is turned on, the rotational driving of the payout motor 364 of the prize ball unit 350 is stopped (if an ON signal is derived while a predetermined number of prize balls are being paid out, the predetermined number of prize balls Will be stopped after paying out).

  As described above, the full unit 380 according to the present embodiment is detachably attached to the full unit mounting part 175 of the main body frame 3, so that the full unit is attached to the main body frame as in the conventional case. It is not necessary to form a passage for a full tank structure in the main body frame as compared with the one assembled in the formed dispensing passage. Further, by making the inside of the full tank unit 380 a zigzag passage, it is possible to guide to the storage tray 36 while weakening the momentum of the game balls paid out from the prize ball passage 359 of the prize ball unit 350. The prize balls that are taken out do not jump out of the storage tray 36. Furthermore, the full tank unit 380 according to the present embodiment is designed to join the game balls by weakening the momentum of the game balls on the downstream side of the passage through which the foul balls pay out the prize balls. Foul balls can be merged without any problems.

[1-11. Locking device]
Next, the lock device 400 attached in the vertical direction along the back side edge of the main body frame 3 will be described mainly with reference to FIG. FIG. 43 is a rear perspective view showing the relationship between the lock device 400 and the main body frame 3. The locking device 400 is attached from the substantially upper end to the lower end of the main body frame 3 along the stepped side wall 180 on the open side of the main body frame 3, and the rising side of the outer peripheral side of the main body frame 3 and the stepped side wall 180. A plurality of (three in the illustrated case) lock locking holes 185 formed in the middle and middle of the upper and lower ends between the two portions and the upper portion of the vertical surface of the stepped side wall 180 and the middle thereof are cut out. The U-shaped base 401 of the locking device 400 described below is supported and fixed by a lock mounting hole 184 formed in this manner and a lock mounting hole (not shown) formed near the upper portion of the cylinder lock through hole 167. It is.

  The lock device 400 includes a U-shaped base 401 as a lock base formed in a U-shaped cross-section, and a door frame sliding rod (not shown) slidably provided inside the U-shaped base 401. And a body frame sliding rod (not shown) slidably provided in the U-shaped base body 401. The U-shaped base 401 is formed by bending a metal so as to have a U-shaped cross section, and slidably providing a door frame sliding rod and a main body frame sliding rod. Is extremely thin as compared with a conventional locking device that is concentrated on a base body having an L-shaped cross section. As described above, this is because the size of the game board 4 in the horizontal direction and the vertical direction is extremely large and the space surrounded by the side wall 180 of the main body frame 3 is increased. Since the dimension between the two is extremely small, the lateral width dimension of the locking device 400 according to the present embodiment is reduced, and the mounting structure is improved so that the locking device 400 can be attached to the back side of the main body frame 3. Because. And since the open side of the U-shaped cross section of the U-shaped base body 401 is attached so as to face the back surface of the main body frame 3, when the lock device 400 is attached to the main body frame 3, the door frame is provided inside. The sliding rod and the main body frame sliding rod have a tamper-proof structure in which the U-shaped base 401 is completely covered except for the hook portions 405 and 406.

  First, the hook portion 406 of the body frame sliding rod is passed through the upper and lower sides of the closed side opposite to the open side of the U-shaped base 401, and the upper side of the side surface 401b that is in close contact with the stepped side wall 180 on the closed side. A screw fixing portion 402 is projected in the middle in the middle, and further, the upper end portion and the middle portion of the side surface 401a not in close contact with the U-shaped open side stepped side wall 180, and both open side surfaces 401a and 401b. A locking projection 403 is formed to project from the lower end of the projection.

[1-12. Substrate unit]
Next, the board unit 450 attached to the lower part of the back surface of the main body frame 3 will be described mainly with reference to FIGS. FIG. 44 is a perspective view of the substrate unit 450 as seen from the back side, and FIG. 45 is an exploded perspective view of the substrate unit 450 as seen from the back side.

  The substrate unit 450 is attached to a plurality of holder attachment holes 171 (see FIG. 31) formed in the lower part of the back surface of the main body frame 3, and is attached to the synthetic resin molded frame substrate holder 451 on the door relay substrate. 452, a power supply board box 453, a terminal board box 454, a payout control board box 455, a main drawer relay board 457, and a sub drawer relay board 458. Among the above boards, the door relay board 452, the power board box 453, the terminal board box 454, and the payout control board box 455 are attached to the rear side of the frame board holder 451 so as to overlap in the front-rear direction. The substrate 457 and the sub drawer relay substrate 458 are attached to the front side of the frame substrate holder 451. Since the power supply board stored in the power supply board box 453 generates and supplies + 34V, + 18V and + 9V, it becomes a very high-temperature heat source, and heat generated from the power supply board rises. For this reason, the payout control board box 455 for storing the payout control board 603 (see FIG. 46) is attached to the upper surface of the power supply board box 453 so as not to receive the rising heat. A metal shield heat radiating plate 456 is attached to the back surface of the payout control board box 455 to prevent the influence of electromagnetic waves from the power supply board and the like and to radiate heat generated from the power supply board.

The plate surface is formed as an uneven surface. Heat transmitted to the payout control board 603 by the shield heat sink 456 can be kept small. The contact area with the outside (outside air) is increased by the uneven surface to enhance the heat dissipation effect. Further, it is desirable that the uneven surface is formed in a vertical shape or an inclined shape so that heat is easily radiated when installed. Of course, even if an uneven surface is formed on the shield heat sink 456, the shielding effect against electromagnetic waves is not impaired. The shield heat sink 456 prevents the influence of electromagnetic waves from the power supply board or the like. Thereby, since the influence of the noise by electromagnetic waves can be suppressed, the malfunctioning of the payout control board 603 accommodated in the payout control board box 455 by the influence of noise can be prevented. The shield heat dissipation function of the shield heat dissipation plate 456 is not only between the power supply board box 453 and the payout control board box 455 but also when a plurality of other board boxes are attached to the frame board holder 451 in an overlapping manner.

Thus, when a plurality of persons are displayed on the liquid crystal display 625, a plurality of sprites are used. In addition to a person, a house, a mountain, a road, and the like constituting the background are also sprites, and the entire background can be a single sprite. These sprites are displayed on the liquid crystal display 625 by setting the position on the screen and the vertical relationship when the sprites overlap (hereinafter, referred to as “sprite superposition sequence”). Note that the sprite is configured by bonding a plurality of rectangular regions of 64 pixels vertically and horizontally. Data for drawing this rectangular area is called a “character”. In the case of a small sprite, it can be expressed using one character, and in the case of a relatively large sprite such as a person, for example, it is expressed using a total of six characters arranged in 2 × 3 horizontal, for example. be able to. In the case of a larger sprite such as the background, it can be expressed using a larger number of characters. Thus, the number and arrangement of characters can be arbitrarily designated for each sprite.

[3. Light-emitting diode dimming control of glass unit]
Next, dimming control of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 of the glass unit 70 </ b> A according to the second embodiment shown in FIG. 17 will be described with reference to FIGS. 48 and 49. FIG. 48 is a flowchart showing an example of a normal lighting brightness setting process for a light emitting diode during standby, and FIG. 49 is a flowchart showing an example of a light emission mode setting process based on production schedule data. In the pachinko gaming machine 1, when the player is seated on the opposite side and does not start the game, the pachinko gaming machine 1 is on standby waiting for the player to perform a demonstration of the pachinko gaming machine 1 (so-called “demo”). . During this standby, the game can be started at any time, and the brightness level of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 can be adjusted by operating the effect selection switch 37 shown in FIG. Such adjustment of the luminance levels of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 is performed by dimming control by the sub integrated MPU 609a of the sub integrated substrate 609 shown in FIG. In the present embodiment, two types of brightness are provided for the light-emitting diodes 106 and 108, that is, a normal lighting brightness and an effect lighting brightness. The luminance level of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 set for normal use during the game is set as the luminance for normal lighting, and the luminance level of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 specified in the schedule data for performance is set as the luminance for lighting effect. The level is set. A plurality of the production schedule data are stored in advance in the sub-integrated ROM 609a shown in FIG. 46, and are extracted based on commands from the main control board 602. First, the setting of the brightness for normal lighting of the light-emitting diodes 106 and 108 during standby will be described, and subsequently, the setting of the brightness for effect lighting based on the schedule data for effect will be described.

[3-1. Luminance setting process for normal lighting of LED during standby]
The brightness setting process for normal lighting of the light emitting diodes during standby is a process for setting the brightness levels of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 that are normally used during a game, and is a process that is repeatedly executed during standby. When the brightness setting process for normal lighting of the light emitting diodes during standby is started, the sub-integrated MPU 609a of the sub-integrated board 609 determines whether or not the effect selection switch 37 has been operated, as shown in FIG. (Step S10). This determination is performed based on whether or not an operation signal from the effect switch 37 is input via the door relay board 452, the sub drawer relay board 458, and the lamp driving board 620 shown in FIG.

  When the effect selection switch 37 is not operated in step S10, that is, when the operation signal from the effect switch 37 is not input, this routine is finished as it is. On the other hand, when the effect selection switch 37 is operated in step S10, that is, when an operation signal is input from the effect switch 37, the current luminance level set as the normal lighting luminance from the built-in RAM of the sub-integrated MPU 609a. In this embodiment, the brightness level is “weakest”, the brightness level 2 is “weak”, the brightness level 3 is “medium”, the brightness level 4 is “strong”, and The luminance level 5 is set to five levels of “strongest”, and the luminance levels of the light-emitting diodes 106 and 108 increase from the luminance level 1 toward the luminance level 5. The luminance level set as the normal lighting luminance has four levels of luminance level 1 to luminance level 4, and the luminance level 5 is set to effect lighting luminance. In step S12, it is confirmed which of the four levels of luminance level 1 to luminance level 4 is set to the current luminance level set as the normal lighting luminance. It should be noted that the duty ratio is set to 4095/4095 at the luminance level 5, which is a luminance that is visually dazzling. In the luminance level 4, the duty ratio is set to 1319/4095, and the luminance is visually felt to be weaker than the luminance level 5. In the luminance level 3, the duty ratio is set to 538/4095, and the luminance is visually felt to be weaker than the luminance level 4. In the luminance level 2, the duty ratio is set to 174/4095, and the luminance is visually felt to be weaker than the luminance level 3. For luminance level 1, the duty ratio is set to 6/4095, and the luminance is visually felt to be weaker than the luminance level 2. Although the brightness level 1 is very low compared to the brightness level 5, the brightness level is such that the light emission mode of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 can be visually recognized.

  Subsequent to step S12, luminance level notification processing is performed (step S14). In this brightness level notification process, the current brightness level set as the normal lighting brightness read out in step S12 is used as the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration board 32 and the decoration board 33 shown in FIG. While notifying by the light emission mode with the door frame decoration lamp 35, the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are caused to emit light with the set normal lighting brightness. Specifically, when the luminance level is “weakest”, the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 32 and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 33 are both turned off so that this is notified. When the brightness level is “weak”, the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 32 is turned off and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 33 is turned on to notify that effect. In “medium”, the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 32 is turned on and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 33 is turned off, so that the fact is notified. In this case, the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 32 and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 33 are both turned on to notify that effect.

  Subsequent to step S14, timing of the notification time is started (step S16). Here, the measurement of the notification time for continuing to notify the set luminance level is started. In the present embodiment, 2 seconds is set as the notification time.

  Following step S16, it is determined again whether or not the effect selection switch 37 has been operated (step S18). In this determination, similarly to the determination in step S10, whether or not the operation signal from the effect switch 37 is input via the door relay board 452, the sub drawer relay board 458, and the lamp driving board 620 shown in FIG. To do.

  When the effect selection switch 37 is not operated in step S18, that is, when an operation signal from the effect switch 37 is not input, a process for determining the elapse of the notification time described later is performed, while the effect selection switch 37 is performed in step S18. Is operated, that is, when an operation signal is input from the effect switch 37, a luminance level shift process is performed (step S20). In this brightness level shift processing, the brightness level read in step S12 is lowered to the next lower brightness level and set and updated as the normal lighting brightness. Specifically, when the luminance level read in step S12 is luminance level 3, the luminance level is set to luminance level 2, which is one luminance level lower than luminance level 3. If the luminance level read in step S12 is luminance level 1, luminance level 4 is set. That is, in this embodiment, each time the process of step S20 is performed, the luminance levels of the light-emitting diodes 106 and 108 are set to decrease one by one from the luminance level 4 toward the luminance level 1, and the luminance level is the luminance level. When 1 is reached, the brightness level 4 is set again, and the brightness level 1 is set so as to decrease one by one toward the brightness level 1.

  Subsequent to step S20, luminance level notification processing is performed (step S22). In this brightness level notification process, the brightness level set in step S20 is notified by the light emission mode of the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 32 and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 33, and is set in step S20. The light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are caused to emit light with the updated normal lighting brightness. In addition, the notification method by the light emission aspect of the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration board 32 and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration board 33 is the same as the notification method in the process of step S14.

  Subsequent to step S22, the notification time is reset, and the measurement of the notification time is started again (step S24). In step S24, the notification time is reset and the notification time is started.

  Following step S24, it is determined whether the notification time has elapsed (step S26). In this determination, it is determined whether or not the notification time started in step S16 has passed through the determination in step S18, or whether or not the notification time started in step S24 has elapsed. . When the notification time started in step S16 has elapsed or when the notification time started in step S24 has elapsed, luminance level notification termination processing is performed (step S28), and this routine is terminated. In this brightness level notification end process, the lighting mode of the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decorative plate 32 and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decorative plate 33, which reports the luminance level, is set to return to the standby effect mode. I do.

  On the other hand, when the notification time has not elapsed in step S26, the process returns to step S18, and when the effect selection switch 37 is not operated, that is, when the operation signal from the effect switch 37 is not input, the notification is again made in step S26. While the process of determining the passage of time is performed, when the effect selection switch 37 is operated, that is, when an operation signal is input from the effect switch 37, the brightness level is shifted in step S20, and the brightness is determined in step S22. A level notification process is performed, the notification time is reset in step S24, and timing is started. In step S26, a process for determining the elapse of the notification time is performed again, and steps S18 to S26 are repeated.

  In this way, when the effect selection switch 37 is operated during standby, the current luminance level set as the normal lighting luminance of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 is read in step S12, and the normal lighting is performed in step S14. The brightness level of the brightness is notified by the light emission mode of the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 32 and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 33. That is, when the effect selection switch 37 is operated during standby, first, the brightness level of the normal lighting brightness at the present time is notified. When the selection selection switch 37 is operated before the notification time elapses after the notification time is started in step S16, the notification time is reset in step S24 and the time measurement is started again. Each time the selection / selection switch 37 is operated, the processes in steps S20 to S24 can be repeated. As a result, even when the notification time is set to a short time of 2 seconds, the notification time can be continuously repeated every time the selection selection switch 37 is operated. The setting period of the brightness level can be extended. A player, a hall clerk, or the like can set the brightness level of the normal lighting brightness without worrying about the limited period of setting the brightness level of the normal lighting brightness level.

  In addition, a hall clerk or a player operates the effect selection switch 37 once during standby, thereby emitting light according to the light emission mode of the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 32 and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 33. The current luminance level set as the normal lighting luminance of the diodes 106 and 108 can be confirmed, and every time the effect selection switch 37 is operated, the luminance level of the normal lighting luminance is set. Can be confirmed by the light emission modes of the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 32 and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 33.

[3-2. Light emission mode setting process based on production schedule data]
Next, the setting of the brightness for effect lighting based on the effect schedule data will be described. The setting of the brightness for effect lighting by the schedule data for effect is performed in the light emission mode setting process by the schedule data for effect shown in FIG. When the light emission mode setting process based on the effect schedule data is started, the MPU 609a of the sub-integrated board 609 performs various lamp system setting processes as shown in FIG. 49 (step S30). In the various lamp system setting processes, the production schedule data is extracted from the sub-integrated ROM 609b based on the command from the main control board 609, and the door frame decoration lamp 34 shown in FIG. 35, 42, 43, the light emitting diodes 106, 108 shown in FIG. 17, and the lighting system of the lamp system such as the effect / decoration lamp 621 on the game board shown in FIG. 46 are set. Thereby, the brightness for effect lighting of the lamp system such as the door frame decoration lamps 34, 35, 42, 43, the light emitting diodes 106, 108, and the effect / decoration lamp 621 on the game board is set.

  Subsequent to step S30, it is determined whether or not an effect by the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 is defined in the effect schedule data (step S32). In this determination, it is determined whether or not an effect by the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 is defined in the effect schedule data extracted in step S30.

  When an effect by the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 is defined in the effect schedule data in step S32, the above-described luminance level set as the normal lighting luminance of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 is invalidated (step S34). This routine is terminated. In step S34, the luminance level set as the normal lighting luminance of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 is forcibly invalidated to thereby set the luminance set as the lighting luminance for production, that is, the light emitting diode of the production schedule data. The brightness defined as the effect of 106 and 108 is validated, and the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are caused to emit light with this effect lighting brightness. Note that the luminance defined as the production of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 in the production schedule data is set to “strongest” of the luminance level 5 described above, and the luminance level 5 is set as the production lighting luminance. That is, the effect lighting brightness is forcibly set to a brightness level 5 higher than the brightness level 1 to the brightness level 4 set as the normal lighting brightness.

  On the other hand, when the effect by the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 is not defined in the effect schedule data in step S32, this routine is ended as it is. Thereby, when the production schedule data does not define the production by the light emitting diodes 106 and 108, the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are caused to emit light at the luminance level set as the normal lighting luminance.

  In this way, in step S32, when the production schedule data defines the production by the light emitting diodes 106 and 108, the luminance level set as the normal lighting luminance of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 is forcibly disabled. The brightness set as the lighting for production lighting, that is, the luminance defined as the production of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 in the schedule data for production is enabled, and the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are caused to emit light with the luminance for production lighting. When the production schedule data does not define the production by the light emitting diodes 106 and 108, the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are caused to emit light at the luminance level set as the normal lighting luminance. That is, not only during standby but also during production, when the production schedule data does not specify the production by the light emitting diodes 106 and 108, the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 emit light at the luminance level set as the normal lighting luminance. It can be made to. As a result, when the hall clerk or the like is in the standby state of the pachinko gaming machine 1, the lighting selection is performed by operating the effect selection switch 35 to lower the luminance level of the normal lighting. Power saving of the diodes 106 and 108 can be achieved.

  Further, during the production, the “strongest” luminance level 5 that cannot be set as the normal lighting luminance can be forcibly set as the exercise lighting luminance so that the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 can emit light. It has become. Thereby, irrespective of the brightness level of the normal lighting brightness set by the store clerk or the like of the hall, it is possible to provide the player with a powerful effect by the light emission of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108. Therefore, it is possible to achieve power saving of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 that are electric decorations while maintaining the effect of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 that are electric decorations.

  In addition, in the pachinko gaming machine described in Patent Document 1 described above, although a plurality of electrical decorations such as full-color light emitting diodes are arranged on the game board and the frame part (door frame), the player's interest is increased. Such brilliant light emission due to the electric decoration may make the player feel dazzling, and the player may easily get tired of eyes, making it difficult to continue the game for a long time. For this reason, the store clerk, etc., in the hall where the pachinko gaming machine described in Patent Document 1 is installed has a part of the wiring of the electrical decoration so that the player does not feel dazzling the electrical decoration arranged on the game board etc. It is necessary to perform an operation of removing from the control board. That is, there is a problem in that it is difficult to achieve the purpose because a part of the electrical decoration that is originally arranged to produce a powerful performance is not used as the performance. Therefore, in the present embodiment, when the player feels dazzling in the light emitting mode of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 while on standby, the player operates the effect selection switch 35 to obtain the brightness of the normal lighting brightness. The level can be changed and set, and each time the effect selection switch 35 is operated, the luminance level of the normal lighting luminance can be lowered. Further, during the production, as described above, the “highest” luminance level 5 that cannot be set as the normal lighting luminance is forcibly set as the production lighting luminance to cause the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 to emit light. Be able to. If the player does not start the performance even after starting the game, the light-emitting diodes 106 and 108 do not emit light with the brightness for effect lighting. Therefore, during the game, the light-emitting diodes 106 and 108 emit light exclusively with the brightness for normal lighting. When the production starts, the light-emitting diode 106, with the production lighting brightness regardless of the brightness level of the normal lighting brightness set by the player during standby. Since 108 emits light, it is possible to provide a powerful effect to the player by the light emission of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108.

  In the pachinko gaming machine 1 according to the present embodiment described above, the glass unit 70A including the glass plate 80 capable of visually recognizing the game area 205 of the game board 4 is detachably mounted along the back surface of the game window 30 of the door frame 5. An effect selection switch 37 is provided. The glass unit 70A includes a unit frame 71 formed of a synthetic resin having an opening larger than the gaming window 30, and glass plates 80 and 80 attached to front and rear surfaces of the opening of the unit frame 71. The front and rear surfaces of the opening of the frame 71 are held between the glass plates 80 and 80, whereby the inner space of the unit frame 71 is a sealed space.

  A flexible printed circuit board 105 having a light emitting diode 106 and a flexible printed circuit board 107 having a light emitting diode 108 are provided on the inner peripheral surface of the unit frame 71 sandwiched between the glass plates 80, 80. The sub-integrated board 609 performs light emission control such as lighting, blinking, and gradation lighting.

  When the production selection switch 37 is operated and the operation signal is input during standby when the game has not started, the sub-integrated board 609 performs the normal lighting luminance setting process for the light emitting diode during standby in FIG. The light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are caused to emit light by setting the luminance for normal lighting of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 to any luminance level among luminance levels 1 to 4 as an arbitrary luminance. In addition, the sub-integrated board 609 is set in the brightness setting process for normal lighting of the light emitting diode during standby in FIG. The normal lighting brightness is invalidated, and the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are made to have the lighting brightness for effect lighting.

  In this way, during the standby period when the game is not started, the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 which are the illuminations can be made to emit light with the normal lighting brightness, so that the power consumption of the illuminations can be reduced, During the performance in the game, the normal lighting brightness set during standby can be invalidated and the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 that are electrical decorations can be made to emit light with the lighting brightness for production lighting. A powerful performance by 108 can be provided to the player. Therefore, it is possible to save electric power while maintaining the effect of lighting.

  Further, in the pachinko gaming machine 1 of the present embodiment, when the operation signal from the effect selection switch 37 is input, the operation setting signal for the light-emitting diode during normal operation of the light-emitting diode in standby in FIG. 48 is input. Each time the normal lighting brightness is set from a high brightness level 4 to a low brightness level 1 to cause the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 to emit light, the light emission mode according to the production schedule data of FIG. The process of step S34 in the setting process is performed by forcibly setting a luminance level higher than the normal lighting brightness set by the normal lighting brightness setting process of the light emitting diode during standby in FIG. The diodes 106 and 108 are caused to emit light. Thus, each time the effect selection switch 37 is operated, that is, every time an operation signal is input, the light emitting diode 106 is set in order from the luminance level 4 that is high luminance toward the luminance level 1 that is low luminance. , 108 can be made to emit light, so that it is easy to predict the luminance of the light emitting diodes 106, 108 after the next operation of the effect selection switch 37. As a result, when the production selection switch 37 is continuously operated, there is less possibility that the brightness will be significantly different from the desired brightness, so that it is possible to reduce the work time for such brightness setting, and hundreds of pachinko machines. In a general hall where game machines are installed, it can contribute to shortening the work time of various settings before the start of business. In addition, since the luminance level 5 that is higher than the normal lighting luminance can be forcibly set as the production lighting luminance to cause the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 to emit light, the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 that are electric decorations are used. It is possible to provide a powerful production by the player.

  Furthermore, in the pachinko gaming machine 1 of the present embodiment, a glass unit 70A having a glass plate 80 that can visually recognize the game area 205 of the game board 4 is detachably mounted along the back surface of the game window 30 of the door frame 5. An effect selection switch 37 is provided. The glass unit 70A includes a unit frame 71 formed of a synthetic resin having an opening larger than the gaming window 30, and glass plates 80 and 80 attached to front and rear surfaces of the opening of the unit frame 71. The front and rear surfaces of the opening of the frame 71 are held between the glass plates 80 and 80, whereby the inner space of the unit frame 71 is a sealed space.

  A flexible printed circuit board 105 having a light emitting diode 106 and a flexible printed circuit board 107 having a light emitting diode 108 are provided on the inner peripheral surface of the unit frame 71 sandwiched between the glass plates 80, 80. The sub-integrated board 609 performs light emission control such as lighting, blinking, and gradation lighting. When the production selection switch 37 is operated and the operation signal is input while the sub-integrated board 609 is in a standby state where the game is not started, the operation signal is input every time the production selection switch 37 is operated. Each time the luminance for normal lighting of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 is set from the luminance level 4 which is high luminance toward the luminance level 1 which is low luminance, the effect selection switch 37 is set during the effect in the game. Regardless of whether or not there is an operation, that is, regardless of whether or not an operation signal is input from the effect selection switch 37, the luminance level 1 to the luminance level in which the luminance for lighting the lighting of the light-emitting diodes 106 and 108 is set as the normal lighting luminance A luminance level 5 higher than 4 is forcibly set. The sub-integrated board 609 emits the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 with the normal lighting brightness during standby, while invalidating the normal lighting brightness during the production and causes the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 to emit light with the production lighting luminance. ing.

  In this way, during standby without starting the game, every time the effect selection switch 37 is operated, the luminance for normal lighting of the light-emitting diodes 106 and 108 is set from high to low. During the production, the production lighting brightness of the light-emitting diodes 106 and 108 is forcibly set to the brightness level 1 to the brightness level 5 higher than the brightness level 4 set as the normal lighting brightness, regardless of the operation of the production selection switch 37. It is supposed to be set. Accordingly, since the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 that are electric decorations can be made to emit light with the normal lighting brightness during standby, it is possible to save electric power for the electric decoration, and during the production, the normal lighting brightness. Since the light-emitting diodes 106 and 108, which are electric decorations, can be made to emit light with the luminance for effect lighting in which the luminance level 1 set as the luminance level 1 to the luminance level 5 higher than the luminance level 4 is set. Can be provided. Therefore, it is possible to save electric power while maintaining the effect of lighting.

[4. Another example]
It should be noted that the present invention is not limited to the above-described embodiment, and it goes without saying that the present invention can be implemented in various modes as long as it belongs to the technical scope of the present invention.

  For example, in the above-described embodiment, when the effect selection switch 37 is operated during standby, when adjusting the luminance level of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108, the luminance level is set to the door frame decorative lamp 35 and the decorative plate 33. However, the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decorative plate 32 and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decorative plate 33 are made of full-color lamps depending on the light emission color. You may alert | report by the light emission mode. For example, at the “weakest” luminance level 1, the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 32 and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 33 both emit light in red, and this is notified. When the brightness level is “weak”, the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decorative plate 32 and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decorative plate 33 both emit light in green, thereby informing that effect. In “medium”, the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 32 and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 33 both emit light in blue, thereby informing that effect. ", The door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 32 and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 33 are both in a light emitting mode that emits white light, and this is notified.

  In the above-described embodiment, the normal lighting brightness of the light-emitting diodes 106 and 108 is set from the brightness level 4 that is high brightness toward the brightness level 1 that is low brightness, but from the brightness level 5 to the brightness level. You may set toward 1. As a result, the normal lighting luminance can be set to the luminance level 5. Therefore, during the production of the game, the luminance for lighting of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 is set to the normal lighting regardless of the operation of the production selection switch 37. It is possible to forcibly set the brightness for effect lighting higher than the brightness set as the brightness. That is, the normal lighting luminance can be set to the same luminance level 5 as the effect lighting luminance. Since the normal lighting luminance of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 can be set from the luminance level 5 toward the luminance level 1, the setting range of the normal lighting luminance can be expanded. In other words, it is possible for the player to expand the selection range of the luminance level of the normal-time lighting luminance that can be selected while the pachinko gaming machine 1 is on standby. Even if the setting range of the luminance level is expanded in this way, the hall clerk or the like sets the normal lighting luminance to, for example, the luminance level 2 while the pachinko gaming machine 1 is on standby, so that the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are set. The power saving can be achieved. Note that when the normal lighting brightness is set to “strongest” at the brightness level 5, the notification of this is given by the brightness of steps S14 and S22 in the normal lighting brightness setting process for the light emitting diode during standby in FIG. In the level notification process, a light emitting mode in which both the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 32 and the door frame decoration lamp 35 of the decoration plate 33 blink can be cited.

  Furthermore, in the above-described embodiment, the effect selection switch unit having the effect selection switch 37 is attached substantially in front of the storage tray 36, but instead of this effect selection switch unit, a three button type effect selection switch is provided. It is good also as an effect selection switch unit which has 37A. For example, as shown in FIG. 50, an effect selection switch unit having a three button type effect selection switch 37A can include a left effect selection switch 37AL, a middle effect selection switch 37C, and a right effect selection switch 37AR. . Whether the hall clerk or the like operates any of the left effect selection switch 37AL, the middle effect selection switch 37C, and the right effect selection switch 37AR while the pachinko machine 1 is on standby, the brightness for normal lighting of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 May be set from luminance level 4 which is high luminance to luminance level 1 which is low luminance, or when the left effect selection switch 37AL is operated, the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are normally lit. When the right effect selection switch 37AR is operated so that the brightness can be set from the brightness level 4 which is high brightness to the brightness level 1 which is low brightness, the brightness for normal lighting of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 is set. The luminance level 1 can be set from a low luminance level 1 to a high luminance level 5. Unishi may be.

  Furthermore, in the above-described embodiment, the luminance levels of the light emitting diodes 106 and 108 are set to five levels of luminance level 1 to luminance level 5. However, there are multiple levels between the luminance levels of luminance level 1 and luminance level 2. The brightness level between the brightness level 2 and the brightness level 3 is set to a multi-level brightness level, or the brightness level between the brightness level 3 and the brightness level 4 is set to a multi-level brightness level. Alternatively, the brightness level between brightness level 4 and brightness level 5 may be set to a multi-level brightness level. By doing this, the setting range of the luminance level for normal lighting is further expanded, and the selection range of the luminance level for normal lighting selected by the player is also expanded.

  In the above-described embodiment, the brightness level 5 is forcibly set as the brightness for effect lighting during the effect in the game. However, the brightness for effect lighting is set to the brightness level 1 to the brightness level 5 according to the content to be effected. Any one of the luminance levels may be set. In this way, for example, when the lighting for effect lighting is set to the luminance level 1 until starting a certain effect and deriving the winning result of winning or losing, the winning result is likely to be lost. It is highly probable that the winning result will be a hit by setting the brightness for effect lighting to the player in order from brightness level 1 to brightness level 5 and increasing the brightness gradually. It is possible to perform an effect to notify the person.

  In the embodiment described above, the pachinko gaming machine 1 has been described as an example. However, a gaming machine to which the present invention can be applied is not limited to a pachinko gaming machine, and a gaming machine other than a pachinko gaming machine, for example, a slot machine. Alternatively, the present invention can also be applied to a fusion game machine in which a pachinko game machine and a slot machine are fused (one that uses a game ball to play a slot game).
