Description

本発明は、入賞口の前側に前後に開閉自在に設けられる開閉扉を備え、遊技盤の前面に沿って落下する遊技球を受け入れて入賞口に導くように構成される弾球遊技機の入賞装置に関する。   The present invention includes an open / close door that can be opened and closed on the front side of a winning opening, and receives a game ball that falls along the front surface of the game board and guides it to the winning opening. Relates to the device.
弾球遊技機は、垂直に延びて配設される遊技盤の前面に複数の入賞口を設け、発射装置から打ち出された遊技球を遊技盤の前面に沿って落下させて、入賞口に入れることを遊技者が楽しめるように構成されている。上記のような入賞口としては、遊技盤の前面に沿って落下移動する遊技球を受け入れるため上方に開口する固定ガイドを有した固定型入賞装置や、上方に拡開自在となった左右一対の可動翼部材(可動ガイド)を有してなる開閉型入賞装置等が設けられる。   The ball game machine is provided with a plurality of winning holes on the front surface of the game board that is vertically extended, and the game balls launched from the launching device are dropped along the front surface of the game board to enter the winning hole. It is configured so that the player can enjoy it. As the above winning opening, a fixed type winning device having a fixed guide that opens upward to receive a game ball that drops and moves along the front of the game board, or a pair of left and right that can be expanded upward. An open / close type winning device having a movable wing member (movable guide) is provided.
開閉型入賞装置は、一般的にチューリップ型入賞装置と称されて従来から良く知られており、このような開閉型入賞装置の構成等については従来から種々の提案がなされている。しかしながら、従来の入賞装置においては、遊技球が入賞口の外縁に引っ掛かる等の理由により、遊技球が球詰まりを起こす、いわゆる球噛みが発生する場合があった。球噛みが発生すると、可動翼等の駆動部分に余分な負荷が作用して入賞装置の故障を誘発することもあるため問題である。そこで、上記のようなチューリップ型の入賞装置に関し、入賞口の左側または右側に切り欠きを設け左右非対称な形状とすることにより、2個以上の遊技球が連続して進入した場合でも、切り欠きが設けられた方から順次遊技球を入賞口に案内させることが可能であって、入賞口の手前部分における球噛みを防止することが可能な可変入賞装置が周知となっている(例えば、特許文献1を参照)。   The open / close type winning device is generally known as a tulip type winning device and has been well known in the past, and various proposals have been made for the configuration of such an open / close type winning device. However, in the conventional winning device, there is a case in which a so-called ball biting occurs in which the gaming ball is clogged due to the gaming ball being caught on the outer edge of the winning opening. When the ball bite occurs, there is a problem because an extra load may act on the driving part such as the movable wing to cause failure of the winning device. Therefore, with respect to the tulip-type winning device as described above, a notch is provided on the left or right side of the winning opening so as to form a left-right asymmetric shape, so that even when two or more game balls enter continuously, the notch It is possible to guide the game balls to the winning opening sequentially from the one provided with the winning prize, and a variable winning device capable of preventing the biting of the ball in front of the winning opening is well known (for example, patents) Reference 1).
特開2000−84172号公報JP 2000-84172 A
ところで、入賞装置としては、上記のようなチューリップ型のほか、前後に揺動自在に取り付けた開閉扉を開閉駆動させることにより入賞口を閉鎖及び開放させる構成のものも広く知られている。上記のような開閉扉を用いた構成の入賞装置でも球噛みは発生するが、開閉扉を有する入賞装置において発生する球噛みは、開閉扉を開放したときに開閉扉とその前方に設けられた前飾りとの間に遊技球が挟まったり、開閉扉を閉鎖しようとしたときに開閉扉と入賞装置本体との間に遊技球が挟まったりすることによるものでチューリップ型の入賞装置で発生する球噛みとは基本的に異なる。従って、上述した特許文献1の入賞装置のように、単に形状を非対称とするだけでは、有効に球噛みを防止することは困難であり、前後に揺動可能な開閉扉を有する入賞装置には応用できない。このように、前後に揺動可能な開閉扉を有する入賞装置においては、未だ有効な球噛み防止策が講じられていないという課題があった。   By the way, as a prize-winning device, in addition to the tulip type as described above, a configuration in which a winning opening is closed and opened by driving an opening / closing door swingably mounted back and forth is widely known. Ball winning occurs even in a winning device configured as described above, but the ball biting that occurs in a winning device having an opening / closing door is provided in front of the opening / closing door when the opening / closing door is opened. A ball generated by a tulip-type winning device due to a gaming ball sandwiched between the front decoration or a gaming ball sandwiched between the opening / closing door and the winning device main body when trying to close the opening / closing door Basically different from chewing. Therefore, as in the winning device of Patent Document 1 described above, it is difficult to effectively prevent the ball biting by simply making the shape asymmetrical. For the winning device having a door that can swing back and forth, Not applicable. As described above, in the prize winning device having the opening / closing door that can swing back and forth, there has been a problem that an effective ball biting prevention measure has not yet been taken.
本発明は、上記のような課題に鑑みてなされたものであり、前後に揺動可能な開閉扉を有する場合において、より効果的に球噛みを防止することが可能な弾球遊技機の入賞装置を提供することを目的とする。   The present invention has been made in view of the above-described problems, and in the case of having an openable door that can swing back and forth, it is possible to win a ball game machine that can more effectively prevent ball biting. An object is to provide an apparatus.
上記目的を達成するために、本発明に係る弾球遊技機の入賞装置は、遊技盤上の遊技領域において遊技球を落下移動させ、遊技領域内に設けられた入賞装置に遊技球を入賞させる遊技を行う構成の弾球遊技機に用いられる入賞装置であって、前方に向けて開口して遊技球が入球可能な入口(例えば、実施形態における開口63)を有して遊技盤の前面に取り付けられる装置本体部と、装置本体部の前面における入口の左右側部から前方に延びる左右一対の基部(例えば、実施形態における取付基部81)の前部を繋いで入口と対向して左右に延びる前接続部(例えば、実施形態における前側ガード部82)を有し、入口の前に左右一対の基部および前接続部により囲まれて上下に貫通して遊技球が入球可能な入球空間が(例えば、実施形態における空間83)形成されたフロントカバー部材(例えば、実施形態における前飾り80)と、装置本体部の前面側に取り付けられ、後方に揺動して入口を閉鎖する閉鎖位置、および前方に揺動して入口を開放するとともに入球空間内に突出して遊技領域内を落下移動して入球空間内に入球した遊技球を入口から内部空間(例えば、実施形態における球通路90)内に導いて入賞させる開放位置に揺動可能な開閉部材と、開閉部材を閉鎖位置及び開放位置に揺動させる揺動機構とを備え、装置本体部と対向して上下に延びる前接続部の後面が、下方に向かうにつれて装置本体部から離れる方向に傾斜して形成されていることを特徴とする。   In order to achieve the above object, a winning device for a ball game machine according to the present invention drops and moves a game ball in a game area on a game board, and causes a winning device provided in the game area to win a game ball. A winning device used in a ball game machine configured to play a game, and has an entrance (for example, an opening 63 in the embodiment) that opens forward to allow a game ball to enter, and is a front surface of the game board Connecting the front of a pair of left and right bases (for example, the mounting base 81 in the embodiment) that extends forward from the left and right sides of the inlet on the front surface of the main body, An entrance space that has a front connection portion that extends (for example, the front guard portion 82 in the embodiment), and is surrounded by a pair of left and right bases and a front connection portion in front of the entrance so that a game ball can enter vertically. (For example, in the embodiment A front cover member (for example, the front decoration 80 in the embodiment) formed, a closed position that is attached to the front side of the apparatus main body and swings backward to close the inlet, and swings forward. Then, the entrance is opened, and the game ball that protrudes into the entrance space and falls in the game area and enters the entrance space is guided from the entrance into the internal space (for example, the ball passage 90 in the embodiment). An opening / closing member that can swing to an open position for winning a prize, and a swing mechanism that swings the opening / closing member to a closed position and an open position, and a rear surface of the front connecting portion that extends vertically facing the apparatus main body portion, It is characterized in that it is formed so as to be inclined away from the apparatus main body as it goes downward.
また、内部空間が入口を通過した遊技球を後方に導くように形成され、揺動機構は、内部空間における左側及び右側のいずれか一方の外側に設けられ、内部空間において遊技球が転動する下面(例えば、実施形態における右転動面91a)は、後方に向かうにつれて下方に傾斜するとともに、左右方向において揺動機構から離れるにつれて下方に傾斜するように形成されていることが好ましい。   The internal space is formed to guide the game ball that has passed through the entrance to the rear, and the swing mechanism is provided on either the left side or the right side of the internal space, and the game ball rolls in the internal space. The lower surface (for example, the right rolling surface 91a in the embodiment) is preferably formed to incline downward as it goes rearward and to incline downward as it moves away from the swing mechanism in the left-right direction.
そして、装置本体部の前面側における入口を囲む部分の上側の前面(例えば、実施形態における上側面62c)は、前記入口を囲む部分の下側の前面(例えば、実施形態における下側面62d)よりも前方に突出して形成されていることが好ましい。   The upper front surface (for example, the upper side surface 62c in the embodiment) surrounding the inlet on the front surface side of the apparatus main body portion is lower than the lower front surface (for example, the lower side surface 62d in the embodiment) surrounding the inlet. Is also preferably formed to protrude forward.
さらに、開閉部材は、装置本体部に対して揺動自在に設けられ入口を開閉させる板状の扉部材から構成され、扉部材の上面は起立状態において左右に延びるとともに左右のいずれか一方から他方へ向かって下がるように傾斜しており、且つ、開閉部材が開放位置にある状態において、遊技球が開閉部材と装置本体部との間を通過する通過空間における遊技球の通過方向に直角な断面は、遊技球が2個入る程度の大きさであることが好ましい。   Further, the opening / closing member is configured by a plate-like door member that is swingably provided with respect to the apparatus main body, and that opens and closes the inlet. The upper surface of the door member extends to the left and right in the standing state, and from one of the left and right to the other And a cross section perpendicular to the passing direction of the game ball in a passing space through which the game ball passes between the opening and closing member and the apparatus main body when the opening and closing member is in the open position. The size is preferably such that two game balls can enter.
以上、本発明に係る弾球遊技機の入賞装置によれば、前接続部の装置本体部に対向する後面が下方に向かうにつれて装置本体部から離れる方向に傾斜して形成されているため、開閉部材が開放位置に移動し前方に突出しても、開閉部材とその前方のフロントカバー部材との間に遊技球が挟まれにくい構成とすることが可能となり、この部分における球噛みの発生を防止することができる。   As described above, according to the winning device for a ball game machine according to the present invention, the rear surface of the front connection portion that faces the device main body portion is formed so as to be inclined in a direction away from the device main body portion as it goes downward. Even if the member moves to the open position and protrudes forward, it is possible to make it difficult for the game ball to be sandwiched between the opening / closing member and the front cover member in front of the open / close member, and to prevent the occurrence of a bite in this portion be able to.
また、入口後方の内部空間の下面が、その左右方向において揺動機構から離れるにつれて下方に傾斜されるように形成されることにより、入口後方の内部空間において遊技球を揺動機構に近づかないように通過させることが可能となり、揺動機構への遊技球の球噛みを防止することができる。   Further, the lower surface of the inner space behind the entrance is formed so as to be inclined downward as it moves away from the swing mechanism in the left-right direction, so that the game ball does not approach the swing mechanism in the inner space behind the entrance. It is possible to prevent the game ball from biting into the swing mechanism.
そして、装置本体部の前面側における入口を囲む部分の上側の前面が、当該入口を囲む部分の下側の前面よりも前方に突出して形成されていることにより、入口上部のスペースを小さくし、上方の無駄なスペースが削減されるため、入口上部に複数の遊技球が落下してもフロントカバー部材の前方に弾かれることになる。よって入口上部とフロントカバー部材との間における球噛みの発生を抑止することができる。   And the upper front surface of the portion surrounding the inlet on the front side of the apparatus main body is formed to protrude forward from the lower front surface of the portion surrounding the inlet, thereby reducing the space above the inlet, Since the upper useless space is reduced, even if a plurality of game balls fall on the upper part of the entrance, they are bounced forward of the front cover member. Therefore, it is possible to suppress the occurrence of ball engagement between the upper portion of the inlet and the front cover member.
さらに、入口を開閉させる開閉部材が起立した状態において、その開閉部材の上面を左右のいずれかに傾斜させることにより、開閉部材の上面に落下してきた遊技球を左右のいずれかに受け流すことができる。従って、開閉部材の近傍における球噛みの発生を抑えることができる。また、開閉部材を開放させた状態において、開閉部材と装置本体部との間に、遊技球の通過方向に対して垂直な方向に遊技球が2個並ぶ程度の大きさの空間が形成されることにより、2個の遊技球が同時にこの空間に落下してきてもこれらの遊技球が開閉部材と装置本体部の間に滞留することがなくなりスムーズに入賞させることが可能となるため、入賞装置における球噛みの発生をより効果的に防止することができる。   Furthermore, in a state where the opening / closing member for opening and closing the entrance is raised, the upper surface of the opening / closing member is inclined to either the left or right, so that the game ball falling on the upper surface of the opening / closing member can be passed to either the left or right. . Therefore, it is possible to suppress the occurrence of the ball biting in the vicinity of the opening / closing member. In addition, in a state where the opening / closing member is opened, a space having a size such that two gaming balls are arranged in a direction perpendicular to the passing direction of the gaming ball is formed between the opening / closing member and the apparatus main body. Therefore, even if two game balls fall into this space at the same time, these game balls will not stay between the opening / closing member and the apparatus main body, and can be awarded smoothly. Generation | occurrence | production of ball | bowl biting can be prevented more effectively.

The swinging mechanism 70 is disposed close to the right side behind the opening 63. The swing mechanism 70 includes a solenoid 71, a plunger 72, a spring 73, a crank portion 74, and an arm portion 75. The plunger 72 extends forward from the solenoid 71 so as to be movable forward and backward, and a front end thereof is attached to the crank portion 74. The spring 73 is wound around the plunger 72 and has one end attached to the solenoid 71 and the other end attached to the crank portion 74.
クランク部74は、プランジャ72から前方に延びて設けられるが、その前端に側面視U字状のアーム保持部74aを有し、この部分にアーム部75の上端が回動自在に保持される。アーム部75は、上下に延びるとともに下端から前方に屈曲して前後に延びるように形成され、上端に前後に回動自在な被保持部75aが設けられ、前端に上述した回動端部67aを回動自在に保持し前後に延びて形成される長穴75bが設けられている。また、アーム部75は、上下に延びる部分の下端に回動軸75cを備えこの回動軸75cを中心に上下に延びる部分は前後に、前後に延びる部分は上下にそれぞれ回動するようになっている。   The crank portion 74 is provided to extend forward from the plunger 72, and has a U-shaped arm holding portion 74a at the front end thereof, and the upper end of the arm portion 75 is rotatably held at this portion. The arm portion 75 is formed so as to extend vertically and bend forward from the lower end to extend forward and backward, and is provided with a held portion 75 a that can be rotated forward and backward at the upper end, and the above-described rotating end portion 67 a at the front end. An elongated hole 75b is provided that is rotatably held and extends forward and backward. Further, the arm portion 75 is provided with a rotating shaft 75c at the lower end of the vertically extending portion, the vertically extending portion around the rotating shaft 75c is rotated forward and backward, and the longitudinally extending portion is rotated vertically. ing.
以上のように構成される揺動機構70において、揺動機構70が開閉部材64を開閉させる機能について説明する。まず、開閉部材64の扉部65が閉止した状態では、バネ73の復元力がクランク部74及びアーム部75を介して開閉部材64に伝達されるが、この状態では、アーム部75の左端の長穴75b及び後回動部67の回動端部67aは下動され、回動端部67aは長穴75bの前端に位置している。この回動端部67aの下動に伴い扉部65が後方に揺動され直立した閉鎖位置に保持されている(図5(a)参照)。   In the swing mechanism 70 configured as described above, the function of the swing mechanism 70 to open and close the opening / closing member 64 will be described. First, in a state where the door portion 65 of the opening / closing member 64 is closed, the restoring force of the spring 73 is transmitted to the opening / closing member 64 via the crank portion 74 and the arm portion 75, but in this state, the left end of the arm portion 75 is The elongated hole 75b and the rotational end 67a of the rear rotational part 67 are moved downward, and the rotational end 67a is located at the front end of the elongated hole 75b. With the downward movement of the rotating end 67a, the door 65 is swung rearward and held in an upright closed position (see FIG. 5A).
また、ソレノイド71への通電がなされると、プランジャ72がバネ73の上記復元力に抗してソレノイド71内へ引き込まれ、クランク部74が後方へ移動する。このとき、アーム部75の上端の被保持部75aがアーム保持部74aとともに後方に揺動され、アーム部75の長穴75b及び回動端部67aが上動するとともに、回動端部67aが長穴75b内の後端に移動する。この回動端部67aの上動に伴い後回動部67が回動軸66を中心として上動し同時に扉部65が回動軸66を中心として前方に揺動して開口63が開放される。   Further, when the solenoid 71 is energized, the plunger 72 is pulled into the solenoid 71 against the restoring force of the spring 73, and the crank portion 74 moves rearward. At this time, the held portion 75a at the upper end of the arm portion 75 is swung back together with the arm holding portion 74a, the elongated hole 75b and the rotating end portion 67a of the arm portion 75 are moved upward, and the rotating end portion 67a is It moves to the rear end in the long hole 75b. With the upward movement of the rotational end 67a, the rear rotational portion 67 moves upward about the rotational shaft 66, and at the same time, the door 65 swings forward about the rotational shaft 66 to open the opening 63. The
一方、ソレノイド71への通電が遮断されると、バネ73の復元力によりプランジャ72は前方に突出し、これに伴ってクランク部74が前方へ移動する。そして、アーム部75の上端の被保持部75aがアーム保持部74aとともに前方に揺動され、アーム部75の長穴75b及び回動端部67aが下動するとともに、回動端部67aが長穴75b内の前端に移動する。この回動端部67aの下動に伴い後回動部67が回動軸66を中心として下動し同時に扉部65が回動軸66を中心として後方に揺動して開口63が閉鎖される。以上のように、ソレノイド71への通電/非通電により扉部65が開口63を開閉させるようになっている。   On the other hand, when the energization to the solenoid 71 is interrupted, the plunger 72 protrudes forward due to the restoring force of the spring 73, and the crank portion 74 moves forward accordingly. Then, the held portion 75a at the upper end of the arm portion 75 is swung forward together with the arm holding portion 74a, the elongated hole 75b and the rotating end portion 67a of the arm portion 75 are moved downward, and the rotating end portion 67a is long. It moves to the front end in the hole 75b. With the downward movement of the rotation end 67a, the rear rotation part 67 is moved downward about the rotation shaft 66, and at the same time, the door 65 is swung back about the rotation shaft 66 to close the opening 63. The As described above, the door portion 65 opens and closes the opening 63 by energization / non-energization of the solenoid 71.
以下では、上述した揺動機構70により開閉される開閉部材64の前方に設けられた前飾り80について説明する。前飾り80は、図6〜図8等に示すように、前後に延びて形成されて後端部が取付板部62に取り付けられる左右一対の取付基部81と、左右の取付基部81の前部を繋いで上記開口63と対向して左右に延びて形成される前側ガード部82とを備えて構成される。また、開口63の前方に上記左右一対の取付基部81及び前側ガード部82により囲まれて上下に貫通して遊技球が入球可能な空間83が形成されている。この空間83は、図8(b)に示すように扉部65が開いた状態においても、扉部65が前飾り80の前側ガード部82と接触しない程度の大きさとなっている。   Hereinafter, the front decoration 80 provided in front of the opening / closing member 64 that is opened and closed by the swing mechanism 70 described above will be described. As shown in FIGS. 6 to 8 and the like, the front decoration 80 is formed to extend forward and backward, and a pair of left and right attachment bases 81 whose rear end portions are attached to the attachment plate portion 62, and the front portions of the left and right attachment bases 81 And a front guard portion 82 formed to extend to the left and right so as to face the opening 63. In addition, a space 83 is formed in front of the opening 63 so as to be surrounded by the pair of left and right mounting bases 81 and the front guard portion 82 so as to penetrate vertically and allow a game ball to enter. The space 83 has such a size that the door 65 does not come into contact with the front guard portion 82 of the front decoration 80 even when the door 65 is opened as shown in FIG.
以上のように構成される入賞装置50では、その前部に左右一対の取付基部81及び前側ガード部82を備えた前飾り80が設けられるとともに、その後側に装置本体部60が設けられ前飾り80の後方で扉部65を前後に開閉させる構成となっているため、扉部65の開閉等により遊技球が前飾り80及び扉部65の近傍で滞留する事象、いわゆる球噛みを生じさせる虞がある。   In the winning device 50 configured as described above, a front decoration 80 including a pair of left and right attachment bases 81 and a front guard portion 82 is provided at the front portion thereof, and a device main body 60 is provided at the rear side of the front decoration device 50. Since the door 65 is opened and closed at the rear of the door 80, there is a possibility that a game ball stays in the vicinity of the front decoration 80 and the door 65 due to opening and closing of the door 65, so-called ball biting. There is.
上記の問題を解決するため、本実施形態における入賞装置50では、図6に示すように、前側ガード部82の扉部65に対向する後面82aが下方に向かうにつれて前方すなわち扉部65から離れる方向に傾斜するように形成されている。このことにより、扉部65の開放時に、扉部65とその前方に設けられた前側ガード部82との間に下方に向かう程大きくなる空間が設けられることになり遊技球を下方に通過させやすくすることができる。これにより、遊技球が扉部65及び前側ガード部82の近傍で球噛みする事象の発生を防止することができる。   In order to solve the above problem, in the winning device 50 according to the present embodiment, as shown in FIG. 6, as the rear surface 82 a facing the door 65 of the front guard portion 82 goes downward, the direction away from the door 65. It is formed so as to be inclined. As a result, when the door portion 65 is opened, a space that increases toward the lower side is provided between the door portion 65 and the front guard portion 82 provided in front of the door portion 65, and it is easy to pass the game ball downward. can do. Thereby, it is possible to prevent the occurrence of an event in which the game ball bites in the vicinity of the door portion 65 and the front guard portion 82.
特に、本実施形態の入賞装置50のように、扉部65をソレノイド71への通電により開放しバネ73の弾性力により閉鎖する場合、バネ73の弾性力よりもソレノイド71の磁力の方が大きいため、従来は扉の閉鎖時に比べて開放時の方が球噛みが頻発していた。しかし、上記のように、前側ガード部82の後面82aが下方に向かうにつれて前方に傾斜して形成されることにより、前側ガード部82と扉部65との間における球噛みを防止することができる。また、本実施形態における入賞装置50では、上記の他にも種々の球噛み防止策が講じられている。その球噛み防止策の5点の特徴について以下で説明する。   Particularly when the door 65 is opened by energizing the solenoid 71 and closed by the elastic force of the spring 73 as in the winning device 50 of the present embodiment, the magnetic force of the solenoid 71 is greater than the elastic force of the spring 73. For this reason, conventionally, the ball biting occurred more frequently when the door was opened than when the door was closed. However, as described above, the rear surface 82a of the front guard portion 82 is formed to be inclined forward as it goes downward, so that the ball engagement between the front guard portion 82 and the door portion 65 can be prevented. . Further, in the winning device 50 according to the present embodiment, various measures for preventing the biting of the ball are taken in addition to the above. The features of the five points for preventing the ball biting will be described below.
まず、1点目としては、開口63の内部後方に形成される筐体61の内部空間であって開口63を通過した遊技球を後方に導く球通路90等の構造について特徴を有する。具体的には、図7(b)等に示すように、揺動機構70のクランク部74やアーム部75は開口63の後方の球通路90の右側に設けられるが、まず球通路90の下面91については、その右半分の右転動面91aと左半分の左転動面91bとからなる。そして右転動面91a及び左転動面91b(下面91)は後方に向かうにつれて下方に傾斜して形成されるとともに(図6参照)、右転動面91aはさらに右から左(揺動機構70から離れる方向)に向かうにつれて下方に傾斜して形成される(図7(c)参照)。   First, the first point is characterized by a structure such as a ball passage 90 that guides a game ball that has passed through the opening 63 in the internal space of the housing 61 formed at the rear of the opening 63. Specifically, as shown in FIG. 7B and the like, the crank portion 74 and the arm portion 75 of the swing mechanism 70 are provided on the right side of the ball passage 90 behind the opening 63. About 91, it consists of the right rolling surface 91a of the right half, and the left rolling surface 91b of the left half. The right rolling surface 91a and the left rolling surface 91b (lower surface 91) are formed to be inclined downward (see FIG. 6) toward the rear (see FIG. 6), and the right rolling surface 91a is further moved from the right to the left (swing mechanism). (In a direction away from 70), it is inclined downward (see FIG. 7C).
また、従来の入賞装置では揺動機構の一部が球通路に露出されるように構成されていたが、本実施形態の入賞装置50には、図7(b)及び(c)に示すように、揺動機構70のアーム部75近傍の左側且つ右転動面91aの右側から上方に延びて形成される右壁部93が設けられる。よって、揺動機構70と右転動面91aとの間に形成される空間が小さくなるため、開口63から入ってきた遊技球を揺動機構70に接触させないようにすることができる。また、右転動面91aが右から左に向かうにつれて下方に傾斜して形成されることにより、遊技球を揺動機構70とは反対側の左方に形成された左壁部92に寄せて移動させ、揺動機構70から離して通過させることができるため、遊技球が右側のアーム部75等に挟まって滞留する虞を回避することができる。   In addition, in the conventional winning device, a part of the swing mechanism is configured to be exposed to the ball passage. However, the winning device 50 according to the present embodiment has a configuration shown in FIGS. 7B and 7C. In addition, a right wall portion 93 formed to extend upward from the left side in the vicinity of the arm portion 75 of the swing mechanism 70 and the right side of the right rolling surface 91a is provided. Therefore, since the space formed between the swing mechanism 70 and the right rolling surface 91a is reduced, it is possible to prevent the game ball entering from the opening 63 from contacting the swing mechanism 70. Further, the right rolling surface 91a is formed so as to be inclined downward from the right to the left, so that the game ball is brought to the left wall portion 92 formed on the left side opposite to the swing mechanism 70. Since it can be moved and allowed to pass away from the swing mechanism 70, it is possible to avoid the possibility that the game ball is stuck between the right arm portion 75 and the like.
なお、上記1点目の特徴としては、球通路90の下面91が、後方且つ左方に下がるように傾斜する右転動面91aと、後方にのみ傾斜する左転動面91bとからなる例について説明したが、右転動面91aと左転動面91bとが占める割合は上記のように半分でなくてもよい。また、球通路90の下面91を上記のような右転動面91a及び左転動面91bに分けなくても、球通路90の下面91全体を左に下がるように傾斜させても上記同様の効果が得られる。   The first feature is that the lower surface 91 of the ball passage 90 is composed of a right rolling surface 91a that tilts backward and to the left and a left rolling surface 91b that only tilts backward. However, the ratio of the right rolling surface 91a and the left rolling surface 91b may not be half as described above. Even if the lower surface 91 of the ball passage 90 is not divided into the right rolling surface 91a and the left rolling surface 91b as described above, the entire lower surface 91 of the ball passage 90 is inclined so as to be lowered to the left. An effect is obtained.
2点目としては、装置本体部60の前方に設けられる取付板部62の形状について特徴を有する。まず、取付板部62には、図6(a)に示すように、上端から下方に向かうにつれて前方に傾斜するテーパ面62bと、テーパ面62bの下端から垂直下方に延びる上側面62cとが開口63の上部に形成されるとともに、垂直下方に延びる下側面62dが開口63の下部に形成される。ここで、取付板部62の上側面62cの前後方向の厚さは下側面62dの部分の当該厚さより1.5mm程度厚くなっており、上側面62cは下側面62dよりも1.5mm程度前方に突出して形成される。すなわち、前側ガード部82の後面82aの上端から垂直下方に形成される面と上側面62cとの距離をw1、前記垂直下方に形成される面と下側面62dとの距離をw2とするとw1<w2となる。   The second point is characterized by the shape of the mounting plate 62 provided in front of the apparatus main body 60. First, as shown in FIG. 6A, the mounting plate 62 has a tapered surface 62b inclined forward as it goes downward from the upper end, and an upper side surface 62c extending vertically downward from the lower end of the tapered surface 62b. A lower side surface 62 d that is formed at the top of 63 and extends vertically downward is formed at the bottom of the opening 63. Here, the thickness of the upper side surface 62c of the mounting plate 62 in the front-rear direction is about 1.5 mm thicker than the thickness of the lower side surface 62d, and the upper side surface 62c is about 1.5 mm ahead of the lower side surface 62d. Is formed to protrude. That is, if the distance between the surface formed vertically downward from the upper end of the rear surface 82a of the front guard portion 82 and the upper side surface 62c is w1, and the distance between the surface formed vertically below and the lower side surface 62d is w2, then w1 < w2.
上記2点目の特徴としては、まず上端にテーパ面62bが設けられていることにより落下してきた遊技球を前側に受け流すことができるとともに、前側ガード部82の後側と上側面62cとの距離w1をw2より短くして開口63の上部に形成される入球空間である空間83の前後方向の長さを小さくすることにより、取付板部62と前側ガード部82の間に前後方向に複数の遊技球が並ぶことがなくなるため、この部分における球噛みの発生を抑止することができる。特に、w1の値を遊技球の直径(11mm)より若干大きい12mm程度にすれば確実に2個以上の遊技球が入らないようになるためより効果的に上記球噛みの発生を抑止することができる。   As a feature of the second point, first, since the tapered surface 62b is provided at the upper end, the dropped game ball can be passed forward, and the distance between the rear side of the front guard portion 82 and the upper side surface 62c. By making w1 shorter than w2 and reducing the length in the front-rear direction of the space 83 that is the entrance space formed above the opening 63, a plurality of front-rear directions are provided between the mounting plate portion 62 and the front guard portion 82. Since no game balls are lined up, it is possible to suppress the occurrence of ball biting in this portion. In particular, if the value of w1 is set to about 12 mm, which is slightly larger than the diameter (11 mm) of the game ball, it is ensured that two or more game balls will not enter. it can.
3点目としては、扉部65の形状について特徴を有する。具体的には、扉部65の上端面65aの形状について、図8(b)に示すように、扉部65の上端面65aが左から右に向かうにつれて後方に傾斜し、かつ扉部65を起立させた状態において上端面65aは右方へ向かって下がるように傾斜している。このように構成されることにより、扉部65の上端面65aに落下してきた遊技球を開閉時に右方向に移動させることが可能となり、扉部65と取付板部62との間に遊技球が挟まって球噛みする虞を回避することができる。なお、上記では、上端面65aが左から右に向かうにつれて下がるように傾斜している例について説明したが、3点目の特徴としては、上端面65aが右から左に向かうにつれて下がるように傾斜させてもよく、この場合でも遊技球を移動させる方向が異なるだけで上記同様の効果が得られる。   The third point is characterized by the shape of the door portion 65. Specifically, with respect to the shape of the upper end surface 65a of the door portion 65, as shown in FIG. 8B, the upper end surface 65a of the door portion 65 is inclined rearward as it goes from left to right, and the door portion 65 is In the upright state, the upper end surface 65a is inclined so as to descend to the right. With this configuration, it is possible to move the game ball that has dropped onto the upper end surface 65a of the door portion 65 to the right when opening and closing, and the game ball is placed between the door portion 65 and the mounting plate portion 62. The possibility of pinching and biting the ball can be avoided. In the above description, the example in which the upper end surface 65a is inclined so as to be lowered from the left to the right has been described. However, the third feature is that the upper end surface 65a is inclined so as to be lowered from the right to the left. Even in this case, the same effect as described above can be obtained only by changing the direction in which the game ball is moved.
4点目としては、扉部65の開放状態の構成について特徴を有する。まず、図9(a)及び(b)に示すように、扉部65を開放させたときに、遊技球は、扉部65、取付板部62、及び扉部65の左右の端面から上下前後に延びる側面により囲まれる通過空間を通って開口63に導かれるが、当該通過空間における遊技球の通過方向(矢印Bの方向)に直角な断面は遊技球が2個並ぶ程度の大きさになっている。この4点目の特徴により、2個の遊技球が同時に通過空間に落下してきたときでも、これらの遊技球を扉部65と取付板部62との間に滞留させることなく開口63の方へ通過させることができるため、この部分の球噛みの発生を抑止することができる。   The fourth point is characterized by the configuration of the door 65 in the open state. First, as shown in FIGS. 9A and 9B, when the door 65 is opened, the game balls are moved up and down from the left and right end surfaces of the door 65, the mounting plate 62, and the door 65. It is guided to the opening 63 through a passing space surrounded by a side surface extending in the direction, but the cross section perpendicular to the passing direction of the gaming ball (the direction of arrow B) in the passing space is about the size of two gaming balls. ing. Due to the feature of the fourth point, even when two game balls fall into the passage space at the same time, these game balls do not stay between the door portion 65 and the mounting plate portion 62 and move toward the opening 63. Since it can be made to pass, generation | occurrence | production of the ball biting of this part can be suppressed.
5点目としては、開口63の後方の球通路90の上面90cについて特徴を有する。具体的には、図6に示すように、開口63の後部における球通路90の上面90cが水平方向に延びて形成されている。この5点目の特徴により、扉部65と球通路90の上面90cとの間で球噛みが発生する虞を低減させることができる。なお、球通路の上面については、上記のように水平にしなくても、開放時の開閉部材64の傾きと平行にならないようにすれば同様の効果が得られる。   The fifth point is characterized by the upper surface 90 c of the spherical passage 90 behind the opening 63. Specifically, as shown in FIG. 6, the upper surface 90c of the spherical passage 90 at the rear portion of the opening 63 is formed to extend in the horizontal direction. The feature of the fifth point can reduce the possibility that the ball bite occurs between the door portion 65 and the upper surface 90c of the ball passage 90. Even if the upper surface of the ball passage is not horizontal as described above, the same effect can be obtained if it is not parallel to the inclination of the opening / closing member 64 at the time of opening.
以上、本実施形態では入賞装置50における球噛み防止の効果を発揮し得る5点の特徴について説明したが、これらは単独で採用することもでき、共に採用することもできる。また、上述した5点の特徴構成を具備しない入賞装置も本発明の範疇に含まれるが、上記5点の特徴構成を具備することにより、入賞装置50においてより効果的に球噛みの発生を防止させることができる。   As described above, in the present embodiment, the five features that can exert the effect of preventing the ball biting in the winning device 50 have been described, but these can be employed alone or together. A winning device that does not have the five-point feature configuration described above is also included in the scope of the present invention, but by having the five-point feature configuration, the winning device 50 can more effectively prevent the occurrence of a ball bite. Can be made.
また、本実施形態の入賞装置50では、前飾り80における前側ガード部82の後面82aが下方に向かうにつれて前方(扉部65から離れる方向)に傾斜する構成、及び上記5点の特徴構成を備えることにより、球噛みの発生をより効果的に抑止することを可能にしているが、本発明に係る弾球遊技機の入賞装置としては、上述した入賞装置50に限定されることはない。すなわち、本発明に係る弾球遊技機の入賞装置はその趣旨を逸脱しない範囲で任意に変更可能であり、例えば、上記では取付板部62の上端にテーパ面62bが設けられる例について説明したが、このテーパ面62bがない入賞装置またはテーパ面62bの代わりに前方に突出する突起部が形成された入賞装置等も本発明の範疇に含まれる。   In addition, the winning device 50 of the present embodiment includes a configuration in which the rear surface 82a of the front guard portion 82 in the front decoration 80 is inclined forward (in a direction away from the door portion 65) as it goes downward, and the five characteristic configurations described above. This makes it possible to more effectively suppress the occurrence of ball biting, but the winning device of the ball game machine according to the present invention is not limited to the winning device 50 described above. That is, the winning device of the ball game machine according to the present invention can be arbitrarily changed without departing from the spirit thereof. For example, the example in which the tapered surface 62b is provided at the upper end of the mounting plate portion 62 has been described above. A winning device without the tapered surface 62b or a winning device in which a protrusion protruding forward is formed instead of the tapered surface 62b is also included in the scope of the present invention.
また、入賞装置50では、扉部65が揺動機構70により開閉され、揺動機構70がソレノイド71等を備えて構成される例について説明したが、揺動機構70等を含む扉部65の開閉構造についても上記に限定されることはない。例えば上記では、揺動機構70が開口63の後方の球通路90の右側に設けられた例について説明したが、揺動機構70が開口63の後方の球通路90の左側に設けられていてもよく、この場合、球通路90の下面91を右方に下がるように構成させることにより、遊技球を左側の揺動機構70に寄せないようにできるため上記1点目の特徴構成を具備した場合と同様の効果が得られる。また、上記ではソレノイド71の磁力により扉部65を開放しバネ73の弾性力により閉鎖する例を示したが、これとは逆に、バネ73の弾性力により開閉部材64を開放しソレノイド71の磁力により閉鎖するようにしてもよい。   In the winning device 50, the door 65 is opened and closed by the swing mechanism 70, and the swing mechanism 70 includes the solenoid 71 and the like. However, the door 65 includes the swing mechanism 70 and the like. The opening / closing structure is not limited to the above. For example, in the above description, the example in which the swing mechanism 70 is provided on the right side of the spherical passage 90 behind the opening 63 has been described, but the swing mechanism 70 may be provided on the left side of the spherical passage 90 behind the opening 63. Well, in this case, when the lower surface 91 of the ball passage 90 is configured to be lowered to the right, it is possible to prevent the game ball from moving toward the left swing mechanism 70, so that the first characteristic configuration is provided. The same effect can be obtained. In the above example, the door 65 is opened by the magnetic force of the solenoid 71 and closed by the elastic force of the spring 73. Conversely, the opening / closing member 64 is opened by the elastic force of the spring 73 and the solenoid 71 is moved. You may make it close with a magnetic force.
