The short time state is a state where the result of the winning lottery executed based on the fact that the game ball won to the winning device 30 is detected by the first sensor of the winning device 30 is likely to win. Based on the detection of the game ball by the first sensor according to the winning device 30, the main control device executes a finalized display appropriately through the second special symbol variation display in the second special symbol display unit of the special symbol display unit 34 If the winning lottery result is winning, the winning symbol is confirmed and displayed on the second special symbol display unit of the special symbol display unit 34, and the movable body of the winning device 30 is frequently opened (winning state). .
When the movable body is in an open state and the passing of the game ball is detected by the second sensor related to the winning device 30, the main control device draws the jackpot lottery or the result as in the case of winning the starting winning opening 26. Control based on the above is executed. In this case as well, the main control device intermittently opens the second grand prize-winning device 32 and commands the game ball to be paid out in accordance with the winning of the game ball to the second big prize-winning device 32.
Therefore, the player causes the game ball to flow down in the game ball passage on the right side of the center decorative member 20 in the short-time state after the big hit state is finished, so that the game with respect to the winning device 30 and the second big winning device 32 is performed. The goal is to win the ball. Note that the short-time state and the hit state are states in which a relatively large number of game balls can be obtained, or the state can occur with a higher probability than usual, so that the player This is an advantageous gaming state for the player.
Then, when the total number of fixed display times of the first special symbol and the second special symbol on the special symbol display unit 34 reaches a predetermined number without causing a big hit state in the short-time state, the short-time state ends, and the start prize opening Return to the game that aims to win the 26th prize by left-handed.

Then, the arm 92 rotates around the arm axis 99. During this rotation, since the arm guide protrusion 100 is guided by the arc hole 102, it is possible to prevent the arm 92 that is rotating from shaking (movement that deviates from the rotation around the arm axis 99). By this rotation, the end of the arm 92 on the second decorative member 112 side is lowered, and the arm driven protrusion 130 of the second decorative member 112 is moved downward through the decorative member-side long hole 98, so that the second decorative member is moved. The member 112 is lowered.

In the first half of the lowering of the second decorative member 112, the slide body 129 of the second decorative base 120 is positioned at the upper end of the rail 123 of the first decorative base 114, and the upper side portion of the second decorative base 120 is the first decorative base 114. The second decorative member 112 supports the first decorative member 110 through the slide body 129 and the rib 124 in contact with the lower surface of the rib 124. Accordingly, the first decorative member 110 is lowered together with the second decorative member 112 (overlaid on the second decorative member 112 while being placed on the second decorative member 112).
When the lowering of the second decorative member 112 reaches the center, the first slider 146 integrated with the first slider connecting portion 128 reaches the lower end of the first rail 144 and stops, and the lowering of the first decorative member 110 stops. At this time, the 1st decoration member 110 has reached the predetermined position which concerns on an unfolded state, and is supported by the 1st slide mechanism 140 (1st rail 144) so that it may not move below it.
On the other hand, the lowering of the second decorative member 112 continues and gradually appears from the first decorative member 110 that has reached the developed state. The second decorative member 112 is lowered relative to the deployed first decorative member 110, and the slide body 129 is lowered along the rail 123.
The lowering of the second decorative member 112 stops when the next state is reached. That is, the slide body 129 is positioned at the lower end of the rail 123, and the second slider 154 integrated with the second slider connecting portion 132 reaches the lower end of the second rail 150. At this time, the second decorative member 112 also reaches a predetermined position in the expanded state, and the movable decorative portion 22 as a whole is in the expanded state. In the deployed state, the second decorative member 112 is supported so as not to move further downward by the slide body 129 hanging on the lower end of the rail 123 and the second slide mechanism 142 (second rail 150).
The first decorative member 110 and the second decorative member 112 are not lowered by the rail 123 and the slide body 129 (sliding mechanism between decorative members) or the first slide mechanism 140 and the second slide mechanism 142 except for the sliding direction. To be performed stably.
The sub-control device stops driving the motor 84 when the second decorative member 112 reaches the lowering stop position. In the deployed state, the second decorative member 112 is also supported by the arm 92. The sub-control device grasps the arrival of the lowering stop position of the second decorative member 112 by a sensor (not shown) that can detect the second decorative member 112 at the lowering stop position. The sensor is electrically connected to the sub-control device. Note that the descending stop position may be grasped when the drive amount (rotation amount) of the motor 84 reaches a predetermined amount, or may be grasped when a predetermined time has elapsed since the start of driving of the motor 84. .

When the sub-control device grasps that a specific time has passed since the sub-control device is in the unfolded state (or from the start of driving of the motor 84 in the contracted state), the sub-control device starts driving the motor 84 so that the rotating shaft rotates in the reverse direction. The sub-control device grasps the elapse of the specific time by a timer built in itself.
Then, the end of the arm 92 on the motor 84 side is lowered and the end of the second decorative member 112 is raised, and the second decorative member 112 is guided by the slide body 129 in the rail 123 and the second slide mechanism 142. It rises while.
When the second decorative member 112 reaches the center, the upper portion of the slide body 129 comes into contact with the lower surface of the rib 124 of the first decorative member 110, and further rises to raise the first decorative member 110 together.
When the first decorative member 110 and the second decorative member 112 are lifted and reach the contracted state, the sub-control device stops the driving of the motor 84 as in the unfolded state (downward stop position). In the contracted state, the second decorative member 112 is supported by the arm 92, and the first decorative member 110 is supported by the second decorative member 112.

The sub-control device can cause the movable decorative portion 22 to perform not only an operation of returning from the contracted state to the contracted state through the expanded state, but also an operation of arbitrarily moving between these states. Such an operation can be freely performed by controlling the rotation amount and the rotation direction of the motor 84.
For example, the second decorative member 112 is lowered from the contracted state or a state where the first decorative member 110 is lowered to the lowering stop position of the first decorative member 110 (the center position of the second decorative member 112) or halfway, and is not lowered any further. Can be returned to a contracted state or the like, and this can be repeated. In this case, the second decorative body 122 is hidden behind the first decorative body 116 and is not clearly recognized by the player, and only the first decorative body 116 appears to move up and down. In the case of repetition, the descent start position or the most descending position may be the same every time, or may be different according to or without following a predetermined pattern.
Further, the second decorative member 112 can be raised from the position where the first decorative member 110 is lowered or from the position where the second decorative member 112 is further lowered, and then the second decorative member 112 is lowered to the developed state or partway. This can be repeated. In this case, it seems to the player that the second decorative body 122 moves up and down from the state in which the first decorative body 116 has come out. In the case of repetition, the descent start position or the most descending position may be the same every time, or may be different according to or without following a predetermined pattern.

In addition, the sub-control device can arbitrarily turn on / off the lamps of the first decorative member 110 and the second decorative member 112. The lighting pattern of the lamp can be interlocked with the pattern of how the movable decorative portion 22 moves (vertical movement).
The second decorative member 112 is positioned below the first decorative member 110 in the unfolded state or in the middle of rising and lowering (below the lowest position of the first decorative member 112). The second decorative member 112 is located on the side. At this time, the curved surface portion R at the lower front surface of the first decorative body 116 has a curved surface that gradually approaches the second decorative body 122, and thus the front surface of the first decorative body 116 and the second decorative body 122. The front surface of each of these can form a continuous surface, and can have an appearance as if they were a single decorative body. it can.
Furthermore, since the curved surface portion R is lit by the first lamp, the continuity between the first decorative body 116 and the second decorative body 122 is emphasized, and if the lighting modes of the first lamp and the second lamp are aligned. The integrity of the first decorative body 116 and the second decorative body 122 can be further emphasized.
