When the special symbol is stopped at the winning symbol, the game is shifted to the big winning opening opening game corresponding to the winning type, the big winning port solenoid 47 is driven to operate the open / close door 23, and the winning type In response to this, each part of the sub-control board 200 is controlled so as to perform an effect during the big prize opening opening game.

  The effect control board 130 includes a CPU 131, a ROM 132, a RAM 133, and a real time clock (RTC) 134, determines specific contents of effects based on signals and commands from the main control board 100, and the image control board 140. And the accessory control board 150 are controlled. For example, when receiving a variation start command transmitted in response to the start of variation display of the special symbol on the main control board 100, the effect control board 130 produces the effect pattern performed by the image display 8 and the accessory operation unit 30. By controlling the image control board 140 and the accessory control board 150, an effect corresponding to the effect pattern is executed. The effect pattern determined here is an effect pattern corresponding to the change display time of the special symbol determined by the main control board 100, the presence or absence of the reach effect, and the like. Then, when the change control command is received from the main control board 100, the effect control board 130 ends the execution of the effect pattern determined as described above, and the stop symbol corresponding to the result of the jackpot determination in the main control board 100. Then, the image control board 140 and the accessory control board 150 are controlled so as to stop the variation of the decorative design.

  The image control board 140 includes a CPU 141, a ROM 142, a RAM 143, and a VRAM 144, and controls the image display 8 and the speaker 5 on the basis of the designation from the effect control board 130. In addition to displaying variation of decorative symbols, various effects such as reach effects are performed. The VRAM 144 is a memory for writing an image to be displayed on the image display 8. The CPU 141 executes various processes such as background image display processing, decoration symbol display processing, and character image display processing on the VRAM 144, so that a background image, decoration symbol image, character image, and the like are displayed on the image display 8. It can be displayed in a superimposed manner. Further, the image control board 140 displays an effect image corresponding to the effect pattern determined by the effect control board 130 on the image display 8. By such control of the image control board 140, the effect image displayed on the image display 8 can be displayed as an image that is linked to the operation of the decorative movable object driven by the accessory operation unit 30.

  The accessory control board 150 includes a CPU 151, a ROM 152, and a RAM 153. The accessory control board 150 lights up various lamps 49 including the frame lamp 6 described above based on the effect pattern instructed from the effect control board 130, and the accessory operation. The unit 30 is configured to be controlled. When the accessory control board 150 controls the accessory operation unit 30, motors 36, 37, and 38 to be described later are driven and controlled.

  The guide path 56 is provided with a moving member 58 that moves in the vertical direction as the rotary shaft 53 rotates in one direction. That is, the moving member 58 moves in the vertical direction along the guide path 56. The moving member 58 is attached with the other end of a coil spring 59 with one end attached to the upper portion of the guide path 56. The coil spring 59 acts to urge the moving member 58 upward in the guide path 56. Therefore, when an external force other than the coil spring 59 is not acting on the moving member 58, the moving member 58 is positioned at the upper end portion of the guide path 56 by the biasing force of the coil spring 59.

  On the other hand, the guide path 57 is provided with a support member 85 that supports the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 so as to be movable in the vertical direction. That is, the support member 85 moves in the vertical direction along the guide path 57. The support member 85 has a stage 51 on which the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are assembled, and the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, and the like provided on the stage 51. 34 and 35 are supported. Therefore, when the support member 85 moves in the vertical direction along the guide path 57, the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are retracted from the front side of the image display 8, and the image display is performed. It moves between the advance positions that have advanced to the front side of the vessel 8. The state in which the support member 85 is positioned in the vicinity of the lower end of the guide path 57 is a state in which the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are retracted from the front side of the image display 8. The state in which the support member 85 is positioned in the vicinity of the upper end portion of the guide path 57 is a state in which the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are advanced to the front side of the image display 8.

  Such a support member 85 is configured to move in the vertical direction along the guide path 57 as the moving member 58 moves in the vertical direction along the guide path 56. That is, the moving member 58 supports the support member 85, and when moving the guide path 56 in the upward direction, the moving member 58 lifts the support member 85 to display the movable movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 as image displays. 8 advance to the front side. Further, when the moving member 58 moves downward along the guide path 56, the moving member 58 lowers the support member 85 to retract the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 from the front side of the image display 8. Details of the configuration and operation will be described later.

  As shown in FIG. 7, the moving member 58 has a protrusion 58 a that protrudes to the rear side of the guide member 52. Further, the moving member 58 has a protruding portion 58b protruding to the side of the guide member 52 as shown in FIG.

  A rotating plate 55 that rotates together with the rotating shaft 53 while meshing with a gear 54 provided on the rotating shaft 53 is pivotally supported at the lower end portion of the guide member 52. As will be described later, a gear 551 that meshes with the gear 54 of the rotating shaft 53 is formed on one surface of the rotating plate 55, and a spiral cam 552 is formed on the other surface. The rotating plate 55 is configured such that the spiral cam 552 faces the protruding portion 58b protruding to the side of the moving member 58, and the spiral cam 552 engages with the protruding portion 58b.

  Such a rotating plate 55 rotates only in one direction when the motor 36 rotationally drives the rotating shaft 53 in one direction. Then, the rotating plate 55 rotates in one direction, whereby the spiral cam 552 engages with the protruding portion 58 b and moves the moving member 58 below the guide path 56. At this time, the rotating plate 55 moves the moving member 58 downward against the urging force of the coil spring 59. When the rotating plate 55 further rotates and the engagement state between the spiral cam 552 and the protrusion 58 b is released, the moving member 58 moves upward in the guide path 56 by the biasing force of the coil spring 59.

  As described above, in the present embodiment, the rotation plate 55 provided in each individual unit 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, 30e rotates in one direction in conjunction with the rotation shaft 53, so that each individual unit 30a, 30b, 30c. , 30d and 30e, the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 individually move up and down. The decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are moved to the advanced position in front of the image display 8 or moved to the retracted position retracted from the front of the image display 8 by such vertical movement. To do.

  In the present embodiment, three types of rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c are used as the rotating plate 55 provided in each individual unit 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, and 30e. For example, as shown in FIG. 8, among the plurality of individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, and 30e arranged in a line along the left and right lateral direction, the individual units 30a and 30e located at the left and right ends are mutually connected. The same type of rotary plate 55a is provided, and the same type of rotary plate 55b is provided in each of the individual units 30b and 30d located one inward from the left and right ends. The individual unit 30c located in the center is provided with a different type of rotating plate 55c.

  The difference between the rotary plates 55a, 55b, and 55c is in the form of a spiral cam 552. When each of the rotary plates 55a, 55b, and 55c rotates in one direction in conjunction with the rotary shaft 53, the spiral plate 552 has a spiral shape. The timing at which the engagement state between the cam 552 and the protrusion 58b is released is different. Therefore, when the motor 36 rotates the rotation shaft 53 in one direction with all the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 in the retracted position, the individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, 30e The mounted decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 appear in front of the image display 8 at different timings.

  For example, in the present embodiment, the decorative movable objects 31 and 35 positioned at the left and right ends first appear in front of the image display 8, and then the decorative movable objects 32 and 34 positioned one inside from the left and right ends are displayed as images. Appears in front of vessel 8. Finally, the decorative movable object 33 positioned at the center appears in front of the image display 8. That is, as shown in FIG. 6, when the motor 36 rotates the rotating shaft 53 when the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 are in the retracted position, the rotating plates 55a, 55b, 55c are predetermined. At the timing of the angular rotation, the rotating plate 55a first releases the engaged state between the spiral cam 552 and the protrusion 58b. As a result, in the individual units 30a and 30e located at the left and right ends, the decorative movable objects 31 and 35 are lifted, so that the decorative movable objects 31 and 35 are moved to the upper advanced positions as shown in FIG.

  Thereafter, when the motor 36 further rotates the rotation shaft 53, the rotation plate 55b is next rotated by a predetermined angle, and then the rotation plate 55b is engaged with the spiral cam 552 and the protrusion 58b. Release the combined state. As a result, the decorative movable objects 32 and 34 rise in the individual units 30b and 30d located inside one of the left and right ends. Thereby, as shown in FIG. 10, the decoration movable bodies 31, 32, 34, and 35 are moved to the upper advanced position.

  Thereafter, when the motor 36 further rotates the rotary shaft 53, the rotary plate 55c is then rotated by a predetermined angle, and then the rotary plate 55c is engaged with the spiral cam 552 and the protrusion 58b. Release the combined state. As a result, the decorative movable object 33 rises in the individual unit 30c located in the center. Accordingly, as shown in FIG. 11, all the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are moved to the upper advanced position. In the state shown in FIG. 11, when the motor 36 further rotates the rotating shaft 53, the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 thereafter descend at the same timing, and the image display 8 Move from the front to the retracted position.

  As described above, in the present embodiment, one motor 36 rotates one rotation shaft 53 in one direction, so that a plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are moved upward at different timings. The plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 that have moved to the advance position are simultaneously lowered and moved to the retreat position.

  Next, the motor 37 operates when the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 are in the retracted position, and each of the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 moves to the upper advanced position. It is a motor for restricting movement. As shown in FIG. 7, the motor 37 rotates the gear member 71 within the predetermined angle range by rotating the motor rotation shaft 70 in both the forward and reverse directions within the predetermined angle range. The gear member 71 is provided with a swing member 72, and the swing member 72 is swung as the gear member 71 rotates within a predetermined angle range. The swing member 72 is engaged with one end of a shutter member 73 that slides along the horizontal direction. When the gear member 71 swings left and right as the gear member 71 rotates, the shutter member 73 moves to the left and right. It is configured to slide in the direction. With such a configuration, the motor 37 slides the shutter member 73 to three positions in the left-right direction.

  The shutter member 73 has a plurality of hook portions 74 that advance and retreat on the upper portions of the protrusions 58a that protrude to the rear side of the guide member 52 in the individual units 30b, 30c, and 30d by sliding and moving in the left-right direction. These hook portions 74 advance and retreat on a track when the protrusions 58a of the individual units 30b, 30c, and 30d move in the vertical direction as the shutter member 73 slides. Then, when the plurality of hook portions 74 are advanced to the upper portion of the protruding portion 58a, the hook portions 74 are engaged with the protruding portion 58a and restrict the rising of the moving member 58. That is, the shutter member 73 regulates the number of movable decorative objects that can be moved to the upper advance position among the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 according to the position of sliding movement by the motor 37. To do.

  For example, when the shutter member 73 is in the first position among the three stages, all of the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 can be moved to the upper advanced position. . Therefore, when the motor 36 rotates the rotating shaft 53 in this state, a plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are sequentially displayed as shown in FIGS. A plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 appear at the front of the display 8 and then retreat from the front of the image display 8 at the same time.

  Further, when the shutter member 73 is in the second position among the three stages, the central decorative movable object 33 is prevented from moving upward, and the other decorative movable objects 31, 32, 34, and 35 are controlled. Will be allowed to advance upward. Therefore, when the motor 36 rotates the rotating shaft 53 in this state, the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 34, and 35 are sequentially moved forward of the image display 8 as shown in FIGS. Although it appears at the position, the central decorative movable object 33 does not appear at the front position of the image display 8. Then, when the motor 36 further rotates the rotating shaft 53 thereafter, the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 34, 35 are lowered all at once and retracted from the front of the image display 8.

  Furthermore, when the shutter member 73 is in the third position among the three stages, the central three decorative movable objects 32, 33, 34 advance upward except for the decorative movable objects 31, 35 at both left and right ends. It will be in the state which regulates to do. Therefore, when the motor 36 rotates the rotating shaft 53 in this state, only the decorative movable objects 31 and 35 on both the left and right sides appear at the front position of the image display 8 as shown in FIG. The decorative movable objects 32, 33 and 34 do not appear at the front position of the image display 8. Then, when the motor 36 further rotates the rotating shaft 53 thereafter, the decorative movable objects 31 and 35 at both the left and right ends descend simultaneously and retract from the front of the image display 8.

  As described above, in the present embodiment, the single movable motor 37 slides the shutter member 73 in the left-right and right-left directions in three stages, whereby the decorative movable object that appears at the front position of the image display 8 is a plurality of decorative movable objects. It can be selected from 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35.

  Next, the motor 38 operates in a state where any one of the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 has advanced to the front position of the image display 8, and these decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, It is a motor for changing the postures 34 and 35 from the sitting posture (standing posture) to the prone posture (tilting posture). For example, as shown in FIG. 11, when the motor 38 is operated in a state where all of the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 have moved to the upper advanced position, the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32 , 33, 34, and 35 are simultaneously changed to a prone posture as shown in FIG.

  As shown in FIGS. 6 and 12, the motor 38 turns the gear member 61 within the predetermined angle range by rotating the motor rotation shaft 60 in both the forward and reverse directions within the predetermined angle range. The gear member 61 is provided with a swing member 62, and swings the swing member 62 when the gear member 61 rotates within a predetermined angle range. The swing member 62 is engaged with one end of a slide member 63 that slides in the horizontal direction. When the gear member 61 swings left and right as the gear member 61 rotates, the slide member 63 is moved to the left and right. It is configured to slide in the direction.

  Each individual unit 30 a, 30 b, 30 c, 30 d, 30 e is provided with a rotating pole 64 in the vicinity of the guide member 52. A swing member 65 that swings in conjunction with the slide member 63 is provided at the lower end of the rotation pole 64. When the slide member 63 slides back and forth in the left-right direction, the swinging member 65 swings within a predetermined angle range, thereby rotating the rotating pole 64. A pusher 66 that rotates integrally with the rotation pole 64 is provided on the upper portion of the rotation pole 64. When the rotation pole 64 rotates, the pusher 66 acts on the back side of the support member 85 that supports the decorative movable object that has moved to the advanced position, and changes the posture of the decorative movable object from the sitting posture to the flat posture. It is supposed to let you. Details of this mechanism will be described later.

  As described above, in this embodiment, the single motor 38 reciprocally slides the slide member 63 in the horizontal direction to change the postures of the decorative movable objects that have appeared at the front position of the image display 8 from the normal sitting posture. It is configured to change to a posture. Such an effect due to the change in the posture of the decorative movable object is a big hit in the gaming machine 1 when all the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are advanced to the front side of the image display 8. It will be the most likely to win. On the other hand, the two decorative movable objects 31, 32 have advanced to the front side of the image display 8, or the four decorative movable objects 31, 32, 34, 35 have advanced to the front side of the image display 8. When an effect due to a posture change is performed in the state, the possibility of winning a big hit in the gaming machine 1 is further reduced. However, even when a decorative movable object appears in front of the image display 8, the decorative movable object may retreat to the retreat position without changing its posture. Therefore, after all the ornamental movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 appear in front of the image display 8, the player can move all the ornamental movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 all at once. Expect to change posture. Such effects are performed in stages in the gaming machine 1. Therefore, every time the stage of production advances, the player gradually raises his expectation that he may win a big hit.

  Hereinafter, each operation mechanism provided in the above-described accessory operation unit 30 will be described in more detail.

  FIG. 13 is a perspective view of the accessory operation unit 30 in a state representing only the individual unit 30c located at the center, as viewed from the diagonally upper side on the front side. Moreover, FIG. 14 is the perspective view which looked at the accessory operating unit 30 of the state from diagonally upward on the back side. Further, FIG. 15 is a partially exploded perspective view showing the configuration of the individual unit 30c viewed from the side. FIGS. 13 and 14 show the case where the decorative movable object 33 is in the retracted position where it is lowered, and FIG. 15 shows the case where the decorative movable object 33 is in the advanced position where it is raised.

  As described above, the individual unit 30 c has the guide member 52 erected vertically with respect to the rotation shaft 53. As shown in FIG. 15, the rotating plate 55 is rotatably attached to a bearing portion 58 c provided below the guide member 52 and below the guide path 57. Therefore, the rotating plate 55 rotates around the bearing portion 58 c, and the spiral cam 552 is formed on the surface facing the guide member 52. The moving member 58 is movable in the vertical direction along the guide path 56, and is attached in a state where the guide path 56 is urged upward by the coil spring 59 as described above.

  A protrusion 58a protruding from the moving member 58 to the rear side of the guide member 52 and a protrusion 58b protruding from the moving member 58 to the side of the guide member 52 are provided at the lower part of the moving member 58 as shown in FIG. It has been. Among these, the protrusion part 58b is located above the bearing part 58c, and is opposed to the spiral cam 552 of the rotating plate 55. Therefore, when the rotating plate 55 rotates, the protrusion 58 b engages with the spiral cam 552 and descends toward the center of the rotating plate 55. Along with this, the moving member 58 moves downward along the guide path 56. At this time, since the moving member 58 moves downward against the coil spring 59 shown in FIG. 13, the coil spring 59 is a force that urges the moving member 58 upward according to the downward movement amount of the moving member 58. Increase

  As shown in FIG. 14, the guide member 52 having the rotating plate 55 attached to the bearing portion 58 c is engaged with a gear 54 provided on the rotating shaft 53 driven to rotate by the motor 36 and a gear 551 of the rotating plate 55. To be arranged. Therefore, as described above, when the motor 36 rotates the rotating shaft 53 in one direction, the rotating plate 55 rotates in one direction, and when the protrusion 58b engages with the spiral cam 552, the moving member 58 is rotated. Moves downward. When the motor 36 further rotates the rotating shaft 53, the engagement state between the protrusion 58 b and the spiral cam 552 is released, and the moving member 58 is instantaneously moved above the guide path 56 by the biasing force of the coil spring 59. Move towards.

  As shown in FIG. 15, an arm 81 that supports a support member 85 is provided on the upper portion of the moving member 58. The arm 81 is configured such that the base end portion 82 is attached to the upper portion of the moving member 58 and the distal end portion 83 supports the support member 85. The base end portion 82 of the arm 81 is rotatably attached around a rotation shaft 80 provided on the upper portion of the moving member 58. Therefore, the arm 81 has a base end portion 82 that rotates about the rotation shaft 80, so that the tip portion 83 is lifted upward and a downward tilt posture is lowered. The inclination angle for supporting the support member 85 is changed.

  As shown in FIG. 15, on the back side of the guide member 52, a rack 521 in which a gear is formed on a flat plate member is assembled within a range in which the rotation shaft 80 of the moving member 58 moves up and down. The rack 521 may be formed integrally with the guide member 52. On the other hand, a gear 821 that meshes with the rack 521 is formed at the base end portion 82 of the arm 81. The gear 821 is a semicircular gear centered on the rotation shaft 80, and the arm 81 is rotated around the rotation shaft 80 by moving the moving member 58 in the vertical direction along the guide path 56. The tip 83 of the arm 81 is moved up and lifted down or lowered down. That is, the arm 81 has a rack and pinion configuration in which the gear 821 provided at the base end portion 82 and the rack 521 provided at the guide member 52 are engaged with each other, and the moving member 58 is guided by the guide path 56. When the linear movement is made along the vertical direction, the rotation angle around the rotation shaft 80 is changed to change the inclination angle.

  Further, the distal end portion 83 of the arm 81 is adapted to engage with a lateral groove 851 formed in the front-rear direction with respect to the support member 85. For this reason, when the arm 81 changes the inclination angle, the tip portion 83 slides in the lateral groove 851 in the front-rear direction and presses the upper surface or the lower surface of the lateral groove 851, thereby moving the support member 85 into the guide path 57. It is the structure moved to an up-down direction along. As the support member 85 moves in the vertical direction along the guide path 57, the decorative movable object 33 on the stage 51 assembled to the support member 85 moves in the vertical direction integrally with the support member 85.

  Thus, the moving member 58 is configured to support the support member 85 and the decorative movable object 33 via the arm 81. When the moving member 58 moves downward along the guide path 56, the arm 81 causes the tip 83 of the arm 83 to be inclined downward, so that the support member 85 moves down the guide path 57. Therefore, in this case, the decorative movable object 33 is retracted from the front of the image display 8 and moved to the retracted position. Further, when the moving member 58 moves upward along the guide path 56, the arm 81 causes the tip 83 of the arm 83 to rise and incline, so that the support member 85 moves up the guide path 57. Therefore, in this case, the decorative movable object 33 moves to the advance position in front of the image display 8.

  In the above description, the configuration of the individual unit 30c has been described, but the same applies to the other individual units 30a, 30b, 30d, and 30e.

  Next, the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c provided in the individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, and 30e will be described. FIG. 16 is a side view showing a spiral cam 552 provided on the rotary plates 55a, 55b, and 55c. 16A shows a rotating plate 55a provided in the individual units 30a and 30e, and FIG. 16B shows a rotating plate 55b provided in the individual units 30b and 30d. FIG. 16C shows a rotating plate 55c provided in the individual unit 30c.

  As shown in FIGS. 16A, 16B, and 16C, each of the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c has a spiral shape in which the distance from the rotation center 553 gradually decreases in the counterclockwise direction. The cam 552 is formed. However, the spiral cam 552 is gradually reduced in distance from the rotation center 553, and after reaching a predetermined distance, the distance from the rotation center 553 is not reduced but is an arc-shaped cam.

  The distal end portion 554 of the spiral cam 552 is provided so as to be connected to the outer edge portions of the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c. That is, the tip 554 is provided at a position substantially equal to the radius of the rotation plates 55a, 55b, and 55c from the rotation center 553. Therefore, the tip end portion 554 becomes the outer end portion of the spiral cam 552. The spiral cam 552 is formed in the range of a predetermined angle θ1 in the counterclockwise direction from the tip 554. The predetermined angle θ1 is θ1 <360 °.

  Here, as shown in FIG. 16C, the spiral cam 552 provided on the rotating plate 55c is continuously formed within a predetermined angle θ1 from the tip 554. On the other hand, as shown in FIGS. 16A and 16B, the spiral cam 552 provided on the rotating plates 55a and 55b is continuously formed within a predetermined angle θ1 from the tip 554. In the range, notches 552a and 552b in which no cam exists are provided. For example, in the rotating plate 55a, as shown in FIG. 16A, a notch 552a is provided starting from a position at a predetermined angle θ2 from the tip 554. Further, in the rotating plate 55b, as shown in FIG. 16B, a notch 552b is provided starting from a position at a predetermined angle θ3 from the tip 554. The respective relationships between the predetermined angles θ1, θ2, and θ3 are θ2 <θ3 <θ1.

  The cutout portions 552a and 552b of the vortex cam 552 provided on the rotary plates 55a and 55b are arranged so that the projections 58b of the moving member 58 pass between the cutout portions 552a and 552b in the radial direction of the rotary plates 55a and 55b. It is formed with a sufficient width so that it can move.

  Therefore, the rear end portion (inner open end portion) 555 of the spiral cam 552 in the rotary plate 55a is at a position rotated counterclockwise by a predetermined angle θ2 from the front end portion 554, and the spiral cam 552 in the rotary plate 55b. The rear end portion 555 is at a position rotated from the front end portion 554 by a predetermined angle θ3 counterclockwise. On the other hand, the rear end portion 555 of the spiral cam 552 on the rotating plate 55c is a position rotated by a predetermined angle θ1 counterclockwise from the front end portion 554.

  Such rotary plates 55a, 55b, and 55c are attached to the individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, and 30e so that the tip portions 554 are at the same position. When the rotary plates 55a, 55b, 55c are attached to the individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, 30e and are rotated by the motor 36, the rotary plates 55a, 55b, 55c As shown by, they rotate in one direction in the clockwise direction in synchronization with each other.

  By such rotation of the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c, the moving member 58 provided in each individual unit 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, and 30e causes the protrusion 58b to move inside the distal end portion 554 of the spiral cam 552. Engage simultaneously. Therefore, the moving member 58 provided in each individual unit 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, 30e simultaneously moves downward along the guide path 56 as the rotating plates 55a, 55b, 55c rotate. At this time, the spiral cam 552 gradually moves the position of the protrusion 58b closer to the rotation center 553 as the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c rotate, so that the movement of each moving member 58 when moving downward is performed. The speed moves at a relatively slow and slow speed. Then, as each moving member 58 moves downward, the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 move simultaneously from the front of the image display 8 to the retracted position.

  Then, the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c are stopped at a predetermined rotational position where the moving member 58 is closest to the rotation center 553, and the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c are started until an effect using the decorative movable object is started. Keeps that state.

  When an effect using a decorative movable object is performed, the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c start rotating in the direction of arrow R by driving the motor 36. Then, according to the rotation angle of each rotary plate 55a, 55b, 55c, the protrusion 58b of each moving member 58 is released from the engagement at the rear end 555 of the spiral cam 552, and the moving member 58 Is moved upward by the biasing force of the coil spring 59. The timing at which the projection 58b of the moving member 58 is released from the engagement state at the rear end 555 of the spiral cam 552 differs depending on the rotary plates 55a, 55b, and 55c. , 33, 34, and 35 appear at different timings in front of the image display 8.

  As described above, in this embodiment, each of the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 is configured to move in the vertical direction by rotating the spiral cam 552 in one direction. According to such a configuration, the manner in which each of the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 is moved up and down is determined by the shape of the spiral cam 552. Therefore, by appropriately changing the design of the shape of the spiral cam 552, the motor 36 rotates the rotating shaft 53 in one direction at a constant speed, but the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, Each of the 35 operation modes can be changed relatively easily. Therefore, if the shape of the spiral cam 552 is changed to a different one while the control when the motor 36 is driven can be easily performed, the desired decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 can be used. It is possible to perform an operation. For example, it is conceivable that the rack 54 that moves the movable movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 up and down is engaged with the gear 54 of the rotary shaft 53, and the rack is moved up and down. If the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are to perform complicated operations, the rotational speed and rotational angle of the rotating shaft 53 must be strictly controlled, and the motor 36 is controlled. It is not preferable in terms of complexity. For this reason as well, the configuration of the present embodiment allows the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 to perform various operations in the shape of the spiral cam 552, and controls the motor 36. Is advantageous in that it is simple.

  FIGS. 17 to 20 are views showing the operation in which the decorative movable objects 31, 32, and 33 move to the advanced position by the rotation of the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c. In each figure, (a), (b), and (c) show the state in which the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c are at the same rotational position. Further, in each figure, the decoration movable objects 34 and 35 are not shown, but the decoration movable object 34 is the same as the decoration movable object 32, and the decoration movable object 35 is the same as the decoration movable object 31.

  First, when an effect using a decorative movable object is not performed in the gaming machine 1, the decorative movable objects 31, 32, and 33 are in the retracted position as shown in FIG. At this time, as shown in FIGS. 17A, 17B, and 17C, the rotary plates 55a, 55b, and 55c are engaged with the protrusions 58b of the moving member 58, and the moving member 58 is lowered most. Held in a state. In this state, when an effect using the decorative movable object is started, the motor 36 rotates the rotating shaft 53, and the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c rotate all at once in the same direction (clockwise in the example shown in the figure). start.

  When the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c rotate by a predetermined angle from the state shown in FIG. 17, the state shown in FIG. 18 is obtained. That is, as shown in FIG. 18 (a), in the rotating plate 55a, the engagement state between the protrusion 58b of the moving member 58 and the spiral cam 552 is released, and the protrusion 58b is spirally formed from the notch 552a. Since it moves out of the cam 552, the moving member 58 rises, and the decorative movable object 31 advances to the front of the image display 8 accordingly. Here, when the moving member 58 rises, the moving member 58 instantaneously moves at a relatively high speed due to the increased biasing force of the coil spring 59. Therefore, the decorative movable object 31 also moves at a high speed when moving from the retracted position to the advanced position, and the decorative movable object 31 appears momentarily with respect to the front of the image display 8.

  On the other hand, as shown in FIGS. 18B and 18C, in the rotating plates 55b and 55c, the engagement state between the spiral cam 552 and the protrusion 58b of the moving member 58 is not released. Therefore, in this state, the rotary plates 55b and 55c still hold the moving member 58 in the lowest position, and the decorative movable objects 32 and 33 are in the retracted position.

  When the rotary plates 55a, 55b, and 55c are further rotated by a predetermined angle from the state shown in FIG. 18, the state shown in FIG. 19 is obtained. That is, as shown in FIG. 19 (b), in the rotating plate 55b, the projection 58b of the moving member 58 and the spiral cam 552 are released from engagement, and the projection 58b is spirally formed from the notch 552b. Since it moves out to the outside of the cam 552, the moving member 58 rises, and the decorative movable object 32 is advanced to the front of the image display 8 accordingly. Also at this time, when the moving member 58 moves up, the moving member 58 instantaneously moves at a relatively high speed due to the increased biasing force of the coil spring 59. Therefore, when the decorative movable object 32 moves from the retracted position to the advanced position, the decorative movable object 32 instantaneously appears in front of the image display 8. At this time, as shown in FIG. 19A, the decorative movable object 31 remains in a state of appearing in front of the image display 8.

  On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 19C, in the rotating plate 55c, the engagement state between the spiral cam 552 and the protrusion 58b of the moving member 58 is not released. Therefore, in this state, the rotary plate 55c still holds the moving member 58 in the lowest position, and the decorative movable object 33 is in the retracted position.

  When the rotary plates 55a, 55b, and 55c are further rotated by a predetermined angle from the state shown in FIG. 19, the state shown in FIG. 20 is obtained. That is, as shown in FIG. 20C, in the rotating plate 55 c, the engagement state between the protrusion 58 b of the moving member 58 and the spiral cam 552 is released, and the protrusion 58 b is disposed behind the spiral cam 552. Since it moves out to the outside through the side of the end portion 555, the moving member 58 rises, and accordingly, the decorative movable object 33 advances to the front of the image display 8. Also at this time, when the moving member 58 moves up, the moving member 58 instantaneously moves at a relatively high speed due to the increased biasing force of the coil spring 59. Therefore, when the decorative movable object 33 moves from the retracted position to the advanced position, the decorative movable object 33 also appears at high speed, and the decorative movable object 33 appears instantaneously in front of the image display 8. At this time, as shown in FIGS. 20A and 20B, the decorative movable object 31 and the decorative movable object 32 remain in a state of appearing in front of the image display 8.

  As described above, in the present embodiment, the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c provided in the individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, and 30e rotate in synchronization with the rotation of one rotating shaft 53. While the rotary plates 55a, 55b, 55c make one rotation, the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 are moved from the plurality of individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, 30e at different timings. Appears in front of the image display 8. And when each decoration movable thing 31,32,33,34,35 appears in front of the image display 8, since it becomes high-speed movement and appears in front of the image display 8 momentarily, It is possible to produce an effect that gives a strong impact.

  When the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c further rotate from the state shown in FIG. 20, the protrusions 58b of the moving members 58 are spiral cams 552 provided on the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c. At the same time, the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are simultaneously lowered and moved to the retracted position. At this time, the moving member 58 descends at a relatively slow and slow speed. Therefore, the speed at which the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are retracted from the front of the image display 8 is also slow and slow, so the decorative movable object is used for the player. The decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 can be moved to the retracted position while leaving the rendition of the effect.

  The operations of the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are realized when the motor 36 drives the rotating shaft 53 in one direction at a constant rotational speed. That is, by controlling on / off the motor 36 that rotates the rotating shaft 53 in one direction at a constant rotational speed, the plurality of decorative movable objects 31 and 32 described above can be controlled only by controlling the rotational position of the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c. , 33, 34, and 35 are realized, there is an advantage that the control can be simplified.

  Further, the operation of the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 as described above is realized only by one motor 36 rotating one rotation shaft 53 in one direction at a constant rotation speed. For this reason, not only is the control simpler than when a drive source is provided for each of the plurality of decorative movable objects, but the installation space for the drive source can also be saved. Therefore, since the accessory operation unit 30 can be reduced in size, a plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 that operate at different timings in the limited installation space of the gaming machine 1. Can be effectively installed.

  Incidentally, the moving amount of the moving member 58 that engages with the spiral cam 552 provided on the rotating plate 55 and moves along the guide path 56 needs to be smaller than the radius of the rotating plate 55. That is, when the moving amount of the moving member 58 is larger than the radius of the rotating plate 55, the spiral cam 552 and the protruding portion 58b of the moving member 58 are not engaged with each other even if the rotating plate 55 rotates. In order to prevent this, it is necessary to make the movement range of the protrusion 58b smaller than the radius of the rotating plate 55 on which the spiral cam 552 is formed.

  On the other hand, each of the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 appears on the front side of the image display 8, or is retracted from the front of the image display 8 and from the front side of the game board 10. In order to prevent the movement of the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 along the guide path 57, and the movement amount of the moving member 58 along the guide path 56, Need to be bigger than.

  Therefore, in the present embodiment, as described above, the moving member 58 supports the support member 85 via the arm 81, and the arm 81 moves in the vertical direction along the guide path 56. The decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 supported by the support member 85 are moved larger than the movement amount of the moving member 58 by lifting or lowering the support member 85. .

  FIG. 21 is a diagram illustrating the movement of the decorative movable object 33 due to the arm 81 changing the inclination angle as the moving member 58 moves in the vertical direction. 21 shows the individual unit 30c, the same applies to the other individual units 30a, 30b, 30d, and 30e. As described above, the moving member 58 pivotally supports the base end portion 82 of the arm 81 on the upper portion thereof. The gear 821 formed on the base end portion 82 of the arm 81 is always meshed with a rack 521 provided on the guide member 52.

  As shown in FIG. 21 (a), the moving member 58 has a proximal end portion 82 of the arm 81 when the projection 58b is in the most lowered position by engaging with the spiral cam 552 of the rotating plate 55. The provided gear 821 meshes with the lower part of the rack 521. At this time, the arm 81 is in a state where its tip 83 is inclined downward to the vicinity of the rotating plate 55, and the decorative movable object 33 mounted on the upper portion of the support member 85 is in the retracted position.

  When the rotating plate 55 rotates in this state and the engagement state between the protrusion 58b provided on the moving member 58 and the spiral cam 552 is released, as shown in FIG. Moves upward along the guide path 56. In this case, the moving amount of the moving member 58 is H1 as shown in FIG. 21, and the moving amount H1 is smaller than the radius of the rotating plate 55.

  In the process in which the moving member 58 moves upward, the gear 821 provided at the base end portion 82 of the arm 81 moves toward the upper portion of the rack 521 while meshing with the rack 521. At this time, the arm 81 rotates around the rotation shaft 80 and lifts the tip 83 of the arm 81. When the moving member 58 moves to the upper end of the guide path 56, the gear 821 provided at the base end portion 82 of the arm 81 is engaged with the upper portion of the rack 521, and the tip end portion 83 of the arm 81 is inclined most upward. It becomes a state. At this time, the decorative movable object 33 is in a state of having advanced to the advance position in front of the image display 8.

  The moving amount of the decorative movable object 33 is H2 as shown in FIG. When the moving amount H2 of the decorative movable object 33 is compared with the moving amount H1 of the moving member 58, H2> H1, and the decorative movable object 33 moves larger than the moving amount H1 of the moving member 58. That is, as the moving member 58 rises, the arm 81 changes from the state where the tip 83 is inclined downward to the state where the arm 83 is inclined upward, so that the decorative movable object 33 provided on the upper portion of the support member 85 is The moving amount of the moving member 58 is larger than the moving amount H1 by the moving amount corresponding to the rotation angle of the arm 81. Here, if the movement amount corresponding to the rotation angle of the arm 81 is H3, the movement amount H2 of the decorative movable object 33 is H2 = H1 + H3.

  As described above, the moving member 58 moves in the vertical direction along the guide path 56 in a range smaller than the radius of the rotating plate 55, while the decorative movable object 33 moves along the guide path 57 in a wider range. It is designed to move up and down. Thereby, the moving range of the decorative movable object 33 can be increased without increasing the radius of the rotating plate 55. Therefore, the decorative movable object 33 can be moved greatly even in a small space, and the decorative movable object 33 can appear in front of the image display 8 or retreat from the front of the image display 8. It is possible to reduce the size of the mechanism. In particular, the space on the back side of the gaming board 10 in the gaming machine 1 is limited. However, as described above, the operating mechanism of the decorative movable object 33 is reduced, so that it appears in front of the image display 8 or an image. A plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 retracted from the front of the display device 8 can be individually arranged.

  Further, as the moving member 58 moves from below to above, the time required for the decorative movable object 33 to move from the retracted position to the advanced position is the same as the time required for the moving member 58 to move. Therefore, the moving speed of the decorative movable object 33 moves at a higher speed than the moving speed of the moving member 58, and the decorative movable object 33 can be instantaneously displayed in front of the image display 8.

  Next, a mechanism for restricting the movement of the decorative movable objects 32, 33, 34 by the shutter member 73 will be described. 22 to 24 are perspective views of the state in which the shutter member 73 is in each of the three stages from the back side of the accessory operation unit 30. FIG. As described above, the shutter member 73 slides in the left-right direction (X-axis direction in the drawing) by the motor 37. FIG. 22 shows a state in which the shutter member 73 is at a position (first position) that has moved most in the −X direction. FIG. 23 shows a state in which the shutter member 73 is at the center position (second position) in the X direction. Further, FIG. 24 shows a state in which the shutter member 73 is at a position (third position) moved most in the X direction. The motor 37 moves the shutter member 73 to one of these three positions.

  As described above, the shutter member 73 has a plurality of hook portions 74, and the plurality of hook portions 74 include two types of hook portions 74a and 74b. These two types of hook portions 74a and 74b have different lengths in the X direction, and the hook portions 74a provided corresponding to the individual units 30b and 30d have a shorter length in the X direction and correspond to the individual unit 30c. The hook portion 74b provided as described above has a long length in the X direction. These two types of hook portions 74a and 74b are hook means for restricting the movement of the moving member 58 by engaging with the protruding portion 58a protruding to the back side of the moving member 58. For example, the hook portion 74a is a second hook means, and the hook portion 74b is a first hook means. In addition, the hook part 74 is not provided in the part corresponding to the individual units 30a and 30e located at the left and right ends, and the rotating plate 55 is used even when the shutter member 73 is in any of the three stages. , The moving member 58 moves upward, and accordingly, the decorative movable objects 31 and 35 at both the left and right ends appear in front of the image display 8.

  As shown in FIG. 22, when the shutter member 73 is at the position (first position) moved most in the −X direction, a plurality of hook portions 74a, 74b provided corresponding to the individual units 30b, 30c, 30d. In any case, the upper part of the protrusion 58a of the moving member 58 is not advanced. That is, the plurality of hook portions 74a and 74b are in a position retracted from the upper portion of the protruding portion 58a protruding to the back side of the individual units 30b, 30c, and 30d. In this state, when the motor 36 is driven and the rotating plate 55 provided in each individual unit 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, 30e rotates, the decorative movable objects 31, 35, the decorative movable objects 32, 34, and the decorative movable object. 33 rises in this order and appears in front of the image display 8. Therefore, in this case, all of the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 appear in an effect mode that appears in front of the image display 8.

  As shown in FIG. 23, when the shutter member 73 is in the center position (second position) in the left-right direction (X direction), the two hook portions 74a provided corresponding to the individual units 30b and 30d are Although the upper part of the protrusion 58a of the moving member 58 is not advanced, the hook part 74b provided corresponding to the central individual unit 30c is advanced to the upper part of the protrusion 58a of the moving member 58. Become. In this state, when the motor 36 is driven and the rotating plate 55 provided in each individual unit 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, 30e rotates, the decorative movable objects 31, 35 and the decorative movable objects 32, 34 are in this order. It rises and appears in front of the image display 8. However, in the individual unit 30c, the projecting portion 58a and the hook portion 74b are engaged with each other and the moving member 58 is restricted from rising, so that the decorative movable object 33 does not rise and retreats from the front of the image display 8. Will remain. Therefore, in this case, the center decorative movable object 33 does not appear in front of the image display 8, and the other decorative movable objects 31, 32, 34, and 35 appear in front of the image display 8. .

  Further, as shown in FIG. 24, when the shutter member 73 is at the position moved most in the X direction (third position), any of the hook portions 74a, 74b provided corresponding to the individual units 30b, 30c, 30d. In this state, the top of the protrusion 58a of the moving member 58 has been advanced. In this state, when the motor 36 is driven and the rotating plate 55 provided in each individual unit 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, 30e rotates, only the decorative movable objects 31, 35 are raised, and the front of the image display 8 is displayed. Appears on. In the other individual units 30b, 30c, and 30d, the protrusion 58a and the hooks 74a and 74b are engaged with each other and the moving member 58 is restricted from being lifted, so that the decorative movable objects 32, 33, and 34 are raised. Instead, it remains in a state of being retracted from the front of the image display 8. Therefore, in this case, the central three decorative movable objects 32, 33, and 34 do not appear in front of the image display 8, and only the decorative movable objects 31 and 35 at both left and right ends appear in front of the image display 8. It becomes a production aspect.

  Thus, in the present embodiment, when the motor 37 slides the shutter member 73 in the left-right direction, the motor 36 rotates the rotating plates 55 of the individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, and 30e all at once. It is possible to change the appearance of the decorative movable object in various variations in the effect using the decorative movable object by changing the number of decorative movable objects that appear in front of the image display 8. Therefore, the decorative movable object performed in the gaming machine 1 is such that the probability that a jackpot will occur in the gaming machine 1 increases as the number of decorative movable objects appearing in front of the image display 8 increases. It is possible to diversify the production using the game, and to further enhance the fun of the game.

  Next, a mechanism for changing the posture of the decorative movable object that has advanced to the front position of the image display 8 from the normal posture to the flat posture by causing the motor 38 to slide the slide member 63 will be described. 25 and 26 are perspective views of the accessory operating unit 30 with only the individual unit 30c mounted, as viewed from the back side. Each of these drawings shows a state in which the decorative movable object 33 has advanced to the front of the image display 8. FIG. 25 shows a case where the decorative movable object 33 is in a sitting posture, and FIG. 26 shows a case where the decorative movable object 33 is in a flat posture. Although not shown, the same applies to the other individual units 30a, 30b, 30d, and 30e. As shown in FIGS. 25 and 26, the motor 38 moves the slide member 63 in the X direction or the −X direction.

  As shown in FIG. 25, when the slide member 63 is moved in the X direction, the swing member 65 connected to the slide member 63 is swung in the X direction in conjunction therewith. When the motor 38 is not driven, the slide member 63 is stationary as shown in FIG. At this time, the pusher 66 provided in the upper part of the rotation pole 64 is in a state facing the back side of the individual unit 30c.

  In this state, when the decorative movable object 33 rises toward the advanced position, the operation member 91 that is assembled to the support member 85 and protrudes to the back side of the support member 85 is positioned on the front side of the pusher 66. It becomes like this. The operation member 91 can move in the front-rear direction on the side of the support member 85, and is biased in a direction protruding toward the back side of the support member 85 by a coil spring 92 provided at the lower portion of the stage 51.

  Then, as shown in FIG. 26, when the motor 38 is driven and the slide member 63 moves in the −X direction, the swing member 65 connected to the slide member 63 rotates in the −X direction in conjunction therewith. Accordingly, the pusher 66 provided on the upper portion of the rotation pole 64 presses the operation member 91 toward the front side. The decorative movable object 33 is configured to change its posture from a sitting posture to a prone posture as the operation member 91 is pushed forward. When the decorative movable object 33 is returned from the flat posture to the sitting posture, the motor 38 may move the slide member 63 again in the X direction shown in FIG.

  Next, a mechanism for changing the posture of the decorative movable object 33 will be described. FIG. 27 is an enlarged view of the decorative movable object 33 that has moved to the advanced position. FIG. 27A shows a state in which the decorative movable object 33 is in the normal sitting posture (standing posture), and FIG. A state in which the decorative movable object 33 is in the flat posture (tilting posture) is shown. 28 and 29 are partially transparent side views showing the internal structure of the decorative movable object 33. FIG. 28 shows a state in which the decorative movable object 33 is in a sitting posture (standing posture), and FIG. The animal 33 is in a prone posture (tilted posture).

  As shown in FIG. 27, when the pusher 66 rotates and pushes the operating member 91 forward, the operating member 94 penetrating vertically on the back side of the stage 51 rises by a predetermined amount. More specifically, as shown in FIG. 28 and FIG. 29, at the side of the support member 85, a rotation member that rotates about a rotation shaft 93a as the operation member 91 moves in the front-rear direction. 93 is disposed, and the lower end portion of the operating member 94 is connected to the rotating member 93 by a connecting member 93b. The rotating member 93 is formed with a locking portion 93 c that locks one end of the coil spring 92. One end of the coil spring 92 is locked to the locking portion 93 c of the rotating member 93, and the other end is locked to the lower portion of the stage 51. The coil spring 92 is provided so as to urge the rotating member 93 in the clockwise direction in FIGS. 28 and 29, whereby the operation member 91 is urged rearward in the front-rear direction. Further, the operating member 94 is biased downward by the coil spring 92.

  When the pusher 66 pushes the operation member 91 forward, the operation member 91 moves forward against the biasing force of the coil spring 92 and rotates the rotating member 93 counterclockwise against the biasing force of the coil spring 92. Move. Since the connecting member 93b provided on the rotating member 93 pushes up the lower end portion of the operating member 94 when the rotating member 93 rotates counterclockwise, the operating member 94 rises accordingly.

  The decorative movable object 33 arranged on the stage 51 has a configuration attached to a base part 51 a formed integrally with the stage 51. The decorative movable object 33 includes four movable members including a body portion 33a, a head portion 33b, an arm portion 33c, and a hand portion 33d. The body portion 33a is a first movable member, the head portion 33b is a second movable member, the arm portion 33c is a third movable member, and the hand portion 33d is a fourth movable member.

  As shown in FIGS. 28 and 29, the trunk portion 33a is attached so as to be rotatable around a rotation shaft 95 provided in the base portion 51a. The actuating member 94 is connected to the body 33 a at a position on the rear side of the rotating shaft 95. Therefore, when the actuating member 94 rises, the trunk portion 33a rotates around the rotation shaft 95 accordingly. And by this rotation, the trunk | drum 33a changes from a standing posture to a forward leaning posture (tilting posture).

  On the other hand, the head 33b is supported by a head support member 98 disposed inside the head 33b. The head support member 98 is pivotally supported around a rotation shaft 97 provided in the body portion 33a. Therefore, the head portion 33b is rotatable with respect to the trunk portion 33a. The rotation shaft 97 is provided at a position slightly ahead of the rotation shaft 95 inside the trunk portion 33a.

  Further, the base portion 51 a is provided with a gear 96 at a portion facing the head support member 98 and having an arcuate surface portion centering on the rotation shaft 95. On the other hand, the head support member 98 is provided with a gear 99 on an arcuate surface portion that is opposed to the base portion 51 a and that has the rotation shaft 97 as a center. The two gears 96 and 99 are in mesh with each other inside the trunk portion 33a.

  Moreover, the arm part 33c is provided in a pair of left and right with respect to the trunk part 33a. The upper portion of the arm portion 33c is rotatably attached to the trunk portion 33a, and the lower portion is rotatably attached to the hand portion 33d. The position at which the upper portion of the arm portion 33c is rotatably attached to the trunk portion 33a is a position slightly closer to the front above the rotation shaft 95.

  Furthermore, as described above, the hand portion 33d is rotatable with respect to the arm portion 33c, and is provided on each of the pair of left and right arm portions 33c. The hand portion 33d is in contact with the upper surface of the stage 51, and can be moved in the front-rear direction along the slits 51b formed in the front-rear direction on both the left and right sides of the stage 51.

  When the movable member 33 having such a configuration is moved from the upright posture to the forward leaning posture (tilting posture) when the actuating member 94 is raised, the trunk portion 33a is rotated around the rotation shaft 95. The rotation shaft 97 that supports the head support member 98 moves forward around the rotation shaft 95. At this time, since the gear 99 provided on the head support member 98 and the gear 96 provided on the base portion 51a mesh with each other, the head support member 98 rotates about the rotation shaft 97. The body 33a changes to a forward tilting posture (tilting posture).

  Since the trunk portion 33a is rotated around the pivot shaft 95, the body portion 33a is changed to a forward inclined posture with respect to the base portion 51a, and the head portion 33b is further changed to a forward inclined posture with respect to the trunk portion 33a. When the animal 33 changes from the sitting posture to the prone posture, the head 33b is tilted further forward than the trunk 33a.

  As described above, in the decorative movable object 33 according to this embodiment, the body portion 33a, which is the first movable member, moves around the rotation shaft 95 provided on the base portion 51a as the operating member 94 moves in the vertical direction. The head 33b, which is the second movable member, rotates around the rotation shaft 97 provided on the body 33a. That is, one operation in the vertical direction of the operating member 94 operates the two joints of the rotation shaft 95 and the rotation shaft 97. Here, if the rotation angle of the trunk portion 33a with respect to the rotation shaft 95 is θa and the rotation angle of the head portion 33b with respect to the trunk portion 33a is θb, the head portion 33b is inclined forward with an inclination angle of θa + θb with respect to the base portion 51a. To change.

  Further, when the trunk portion 33a rotates around the rotation shaft 95 and changes from the upright posture to the forward tilt posture, the upper portion of the arm portion 33c moves forward and downward. Therefore, the arm portion 33 c acts so as to push the lower portion in the forward direction of the stage 51. The hand portion 33d moves in the forward direction along the slit 51b while the lower portion of the arm portion 33c is pushed out to the front side of the stage 51 while being in contact with the upper surface of the stage 51. Also here, one operation in the vertical direction of the actuating member 94 individually operates the two rotation shafts provided on the arm portion 33c as two joints, and further slides the hand portion 33d in the front-rear direction. It is designed to move.

  Accordingly, when the pusher 66 provided on the rotation pole 64 pushes the operation member 91 forward, the decorative movable object 33 rotates each of the plurality of joints (rotation shafts) in a predetermined direction. Thus, a complicated operation is realized for the decorative movable object 33. In this way, in order to realize a complex operation in the decorative movable object 33, the body portion 33a as the first movable member is rotated around the rotation shaft 95 with respect to the fixed base portion 51a, and other movable It is preferable to provide a rotation shaft for operating the member at a position different from the axis of the rotation shaft 95. For example, in this embodiment, the rotation shaft 97 of the head 33b, which is the second movable member, is provided at a position different from the rotation shaft 95 of the trunk portion 33a. The two rotation shafts provided on the arm portion 33c are also provided at positions different from the rotation shaft 95 of the trunk portion 33a. As described above, by providing a plurality of joints (rotating shafts) at positions different from the rotating shaft 95 of the body portion 33a, the rotating operation of the body portion 33a acts on other rotating shafts and can be decorated. It is possible to cause the animal 33 to perform a complicated operation.

  On the other hand, when the decorative movable object 33 returns to the original sitting posture from the flat posture, the turning pole 64 turns to separate the pusher 66 to the rear side of the operation member 91. Thereby, the rotating member 93 returns to the original state by the urging force of the coil spring 92, and the operating member 94 moves downward. When the actuating member 94 moves downward, each of the plurality of joints (rotating shafts) provided on the decorative movable object 33 rotates in the opposite direction to the above, so that the decorative movable object 33 is in a flat posture. Will return to the original sitting posture.

  By the way, as shown in FIG. 29, when the decorative movable object 33 is in the flat posture, the head 33 b advances further forward than the front end of the stage 51. Therefore, if the movable movable object 33 is in the retracted position retracted from the front of the image display 8, the decorative movable object 33 is configured to change its posture from the normal sitting posture to the flat posture. It is necessary to provide an empty space on the front side so as not to interfere with the head portion 33b at the time of flattening, and there is an inconvenience that an installation space for the accessory operation unit 30 is increased. In order to prevent this, in this embodiment, even when the motor 38 is driven and the pusher 66 rotates, the decorative movable object 33 in the retracted position does not change from the normal posture to the flat posture. Yes.

  FIG. 30 is a diagram illustrating a state where the pusher 66 is pushing the operation member 91 in a state where the decorative movable object 33 is in the retracted position. As shown in FIG. 30, when the decorative movable object 33 is in the retracted position retracted from the front of the image display 8, an operation member 91 for changing the posture of the decorative movable object 33 is provided on the rotation pole 64. The pusher 66 is retracted to a position lower than the height position. Therefore, even when the motor 38 operates in this state and the slide member 63 moves in the −X direction and the pusher 66 rotates in conjunction with the movement, the operation of the pusher 66 is merely an empty operation. The operation member 91 at a different height is not pushed forward. Therefore, in the state where the decorative movable object 33 is in the retracted position retracted from the front of the image display 8, even if the pusher 66 is operated, the decorative movable object 33 does not change from the sitting posture to the flat posture.

  As described above, in the present embodiment, when the decorative movable object 33 is in the retracted position retracted from the front of the image display 8, the sitting posture is always maintained and does not change to the flat posture. It is not necessary to provide an extra empty space for the decorative movable object 33 to change its posture on the front side of the 51, and the installation space for the accessory operation unit 30 can be reduced.

  As described above, the gaming machine 1 according to the present embodiment includes the gaming board 10 in which the opening 10b is formed substantially at the center of the gaming area 13 where the game ball is launched, and the opening 10b attached to the back side of the gaming board 10. The image display 8 that is visible from the front side of the game board 10 via the game display 10, and the accessory operation unit 30 provided around the image display 8. The accessory operation unit 30 advances and retreats between a plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 advanced to the front of the image display 8 and a retreat position retracted from the front of the image display 8. It is configured to let you.

  As described above, the accessory operating unit 30 is individually provided for each of the motor 36 that rotates the rotating shaft 53 in one direction and each of the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35. Along the arrangement direction of the plurality of individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, 30e and the plurality of individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, 30e arranged at predetermined intervals along the extending direction of the rotation shaft 53. A shutter member 73 that slides and a motor 37 that slides the shutter member 73 are provided.

  Further, each of the plurality of individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, and 30e is orthogonal to the rotation shaft 53 as the rotation shaft 53 rotates in one direction while supporting one decorative movable object. The moving member 58 that moves in the moving direction is configured to move one decorative movable object between the advanced position and the retracted position when the moving member 58 moves.

  The shutter member 73 has a hook portion 74 that is driven by the motor 37 so that the moving member 58 provided in the individual units 30b, 30c, and 30d moves back and forth on the track when moving in the moving direction. The hook portion 74 engages with the moving member 58 in a state where the moving member 58 has advanced on the track of the moving member 58, and restricts the moving member 58 from moving in the moving direction as the rotating shaft 53 rotates.

  According to such a configuration, when the motor 36 is driven to rotate the rotating shaft 53 in one direction at a constant speed, each of the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 is retracted. It is possible to move from the position to the advance position, and the motor 36 rotates the rotating shaft 53 by driving the motor 37 in advance and sliding the shutter member 73 before driving the motor 36. Accordingly, it is possible to appropriately change the number of decorative movable objects that move from the retracted position to the advanced position. Therefore, according to the gaming machine 1 of the present embodiment, the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32 can be provided in various variations without providing a drive source for each of the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, 35. 32, 33, 34, and 35 can be made to appear at the advance position, and the entertainment as a production can be further enhanced.

  Each of the plurality of individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, and 30e further guides the movement of the moving member 58, and moves one decorative movable object supported by the moving member 58 to the advanced position and the retracted position. A guide member 52 that is moved between the coil member 59, a coil spring 59 that urges the moving member 58 in a direction in which the one decorative movable object moves toward the advanced position, and a spiral cam are formed. And a rotating plate 55 that rotates. The motor 36 rotates the rotating shaft 53 in one direction to rotate the rotating plate 55 provided in each of the individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, 30e in one direction. The rotating plates 55 rotate in one direction so that the outer end of the spiral cam engages with the moving member 58 and moves the moving member 58 toward the center of rotation against the biasing force of the coil spring 59. By moving the decorative movable object from the advanced position to the retracted position, the inner open end of the spiral cam releases the engaged state with the moving member 58 and the coil spring 59 moves the moving member 58. Thus, the decorative movable object is configured to move from the retracted position to the advanced position.

  The rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c provided in each of the plurality of individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, and 30e have rotational positions at which the inner open end (rear end 555) of the spiral cam 552 is different. Is formed. Therefore, as the rotating plates 55a, 55b, and 55c rotate in one direction, the inner open end (rear end 555) of the spiral cam 552 is engaged with the protrusion 58b of the moving member 58. The release timing differs for each individual unit, and the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 provided in each of the plurality of individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, and 30e are image display devices. The timing of appearing in front of 8 is a different timing.

  According to such a configuration, when the motor 36 is driven and controlled, if the rotating shaft 53 is rotated at a constant speed in one direction, the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are respectively provided. It is possible to move to the advance position at different timings. Therefore, the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 can appear individually in front of the image display 8 without complicating the control of the motor 36.

  Further, according to the above-described configuration, the engagement state between the inner open end of the spiral cam 552 and the protrusion 58b is released, so that the coil spring 59 instantaneously moves the moving member 58 by its urging force. Since it moves, the speed at the time of moving the decoration movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 to the advance position can be increased, and each of the decoration movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 is displayed as an image. It can appear instantly in front of the vessel 8. Therefore, when the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are caused to appear in front of the image display 8, it is possible to exert a production effect that gives an impact to the player. The production using movable objects can be made interesting.

  Further, according to the above configuration, when the rotating plate 55 rotates in one direction, in each of the plurality of individual units 30a, 30b, 30c, 30d, and 30e, the outer end of the spiral cam 552 is connected to the protrusion 58b. Since the engaging member is simultaneously engaged and the moving member 58 is simultaneously moved toward the rotation center of the rotating plate 55 at a relatively slow speed against the urging force of the coil spring 59, a plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34 and 35 can be moved simultaneously from the advanced position to the retracted position, and the speed at the time of the movement can be made relatively slow. Therefore, the production using the plurality of decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 ends, and when the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are retracted from the front position of the image display 8. It is possible to evacuate at a relatively slow and slow speed while leaving a reverberation effect using the decorative movable objects. Therefore, also in this respect, the production using the decorative movable object can be made interesting.

  Further, in the accessory operating unit 30 in the present embodiment, the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 are supported via the arm 81 that changes the inclination angle when the moving member 58 moves along the guide path 56. Is configured to do. The arm 81 is pivotally supported so that the base end portion 82 can rotate with respect to the moving member 58, and the distal end portion 83 supports the support member 85 of the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35. Yes. Then, when the moving member 58 moves toward the rotation center of the rotating plate 55, the arm 81 rotates about the base end portion 82 to move the decorative movable objects 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 to the retracted position. Move. Further, when the engagement state between the moving member 58 and the spiral cam 552 is released and the moving member 58 is moved by the biasing force of the coil spring 59, the arm 81 is rotated around the base end portion 82 and decorated. The movable object 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 is configured to move to the advanced position.

  According to such a configuration, even when the moving amount of the moving member 58 is reduced, the arm 81 rotates about the base end portion 82 to change the inclination angle, thereby changing the moving amount of the moving member 58.
