前記可動体に配設されるモータや発光装置等の電気部品は、遊技盤に配設された制御基板に電気的に接続する必要があり、各電気部品から導出する配線が個々に可動体から引き出されて制御基板に接続されている。すなわち、可動体に複数の電気部品を配設する構成においては、複数の配線を夫々引き出す煩雑な作業が必要になる。また、可動体の移動時に配線が他の部材に引っ掛かったり噛み込まれると、可動体の移動が阻害されたり配線が損傷するおそれがあるため、複数の配線の夫々について保護対策を施す必要があり、構成が複雑になる難点が指摘される。   The electric parts such as the motor and the light emitting device arranged on the movable body need to be electrically connected to the control board arranged on the game board, and the wiring derived from each electric component is individually connected from the movable body. It is pulled out and connected to the control board. That is, in the configuration in which a plurality of electrical components are arranged on the movable body, a complicated operation for drawing out a plurality of wirings is required. Also, if the wiring is caught or bitten by another member during the movement of the movable body, the movement of the movable body may be hindered or the wiring may be damaged, so it is necessary to take protective measures for each of the plurality of wirings. It is pointed out that the configuration is complicated.

すなわち本発明は、従来の技術に係る遊技機に内在する前記課題に鑑み、これを好適に解決するべく提案されたものであって、可動体に配設される複数の電気部品から導出する配線の処理を簡略化し得る遊技機を提供することを目的とする。   That is, the present invention has been proposed in order to suitably solve the above-mentioned problems inherent in the gaming machine according to the prior art, and is a wiring derived from a plurality of electrical components disposed on the movable body.
