As a result, the rack 42 is lowered. As a result, the first movable member 34 is also lowered integrally with the racks 42, 42, and when the detection means 50 detects the detection piece 46 c, the control device controls the motor 40 to stop, so that the first movable member 34 is Stopped and held in place.
  Each of the movable effect devices 30, 31, 32 of the embodiment includes the original movable members 34, 54, 55 located on the upper side, the right side, and the lower side of the display unit 13a and spaced apart from each other. As shown in FIG. 4, by moving so as to be gathered in the center of the display unit 13a, it is possible to give a great impact to the player and to differentiate from other models. In this case, the first movable member 34 moves downward from the lower side to the lower side of the second movable member 54 and the third movable members 55, 55 aligned in the left-right direction at the center of the display unit 13a. When the first movable member 34 stops at a position close to the second movable member 54 and the third movable members 55, 55, the three types of movable members 34, 54, 55 gather together to produce a meaningful symbol as a whole. It is possible to create a more interesting production.
  In this case, in the configuration in which only the number of steps of the motor 40 is detected and the first movable member 34 is stopped at the operating position, the first movable member 34 may be stopped at the correct operating position due to a detection error or the like. The first movable member 34 may not interfere with the second movable member 54 or the third movable member 55. However, in the embodiment, since the stop mechanism that abuts the deformed portion 49 provided on the operating gear 45 of the drive mechanism 35 against the rack tooth portion 46a is used together, the first movable member 34 is surely stopped at the correct operating position. Can do. In addition, since the stop mechanism is provided in the drive mechanism 35 that reciprocates the first movable member 34, a dedicated stop mechanism is not required, the configuration can be simplified and space can be saved, and the manufacturing cost can be reduced. Can be suppressed.

FIG. 11 shows another embodiment of the drive mechanism 35, and the basic configuration is the same as that of the drive mechanism 35 described above, so only the different parts will be described, and the same parts will be given the same reference numerals. And
  Two deformed portions 49a and 49b are formed in the large-diameter gear 47 of the operating gear 45 so as to be spaced apart in the circumferential direction, and spaced apart in the vertical direction (rack moving direction) on one side edge of the rack 42. Two concave portions 51a and 51b are formed. In FIG. 11 (a), the first deformed portion 49a located on the right side of the rack is partially positioned in the first recess 51a located on the upper side of the rack 42 when the first movable member 34 is located at the original position. It abuts on the tip of the tooth portion 46a and functions to position the first movable member 34 at the original position. In addition, the second deformed portion 49b located on the left side in FIG. 11A has a lower portion in the rack 42 when the first movable member 34 reaches the operating position by the rotation of the operating gear 45, as shown in FIG. A part of the second concave portion 51b located on the side contacts the tip of the rack tooth portion 46a and functions to position the first movable member 34 at the operating position.
