Description of the Related Art Conventionally, a gaming machine including a ball sorting device that receives a game ball flowing down a game area and sorts the game ball received by a sorting member that can change the tilted state in the left-right direction is known (Patent Document 1, 2). In such a ball sorting apparatus, the received game ball is brought into contact with the blade-shaped sorting member, and the sorting member is rotated by its own weight, so that the game can be performed without using electrical control. The ball is distributed to the left and right. Moreover, the rotation of the sorting member is stopped by bringing the sorting member into direct contact with the stopper, so that the tilting state of the sorting member alternately changes every time a game ball is received, so that the sorting direction is changed. Is formed.

JP 2012-231902 A JP, 2014-121486, A

However, if the sorting member is brought into direct contact with the stopper, the sorting member rotates due to the reaction when it hits the stopper, and the game balls may not be sorted alternately in different directions. In addition, even if the sorting member is frequently in contact with the game ball, it may be damaged if it is brought into contact with the stopper. In particular, when the distribution member is reduced in size and weight, such a problem becomes remarkable.
In order to solve the above-described problems, an object of the present invention is to provide a gaming machine equipped with a sorting device that can distribute game balls satisfactorily even with a lightweight and compact structure. .

In order to achieve the above-described object, the present invention has the following configuration.
That is, the gaming machine (pachinko machine P) according to the present invention is provided in the gaming area 120 where the gaming ball flows down, and the gaming ball provided in the gaming area 120 and flowing down the gaming area 120 from the introduction port 31, There is provided a distribution device 1 that alternately distributes between a first area (first start winning opening 150) and a second area (second start winning opening 160A). The distribution device 1 is supported by a front-rear rotation shaft 70 disposed below the introduction port 31 and has a receiving portion (wing portion 12) that receives a game ball received from the introduction port 31. A distribution member (distribution rotating body 10) formed to be rotatable by the weight of the game ball received by the receiving portion, and a front-rear swing shaft 80 disposed below the rotation shaft 70. An auxiliary member (link member 20) that is supported and connected to the distribution member so as to be swingable as the distribution member rotates, and abuts on at least a part of the auxiliary member, and the auxiliary And a restricting portion (left wall portion 51A, right wall portion 51B) for restricting the swing range of the member.

  And the 1st rotation position where the said distribution member can flow down the game ball received from the said inlet 31 to the said 1st area | region, when the said auxiliary member contact | abuts to the said control part, The game ball is formed to stop at a second rotation position where the game ball can flow down to the second region.

  Here, the receiving part of the distribution member can be a plate-like member that receives a game ball flowing down from above. Here, the restricting portion abuts on the side end portion of the auxiliary member, the protrusion 23 provided on the auxiliary member, or the like so that the auxiliary member does not rotate more than a predetermined angle around the swing shaft 80. It is something to regulate.

  In the present invention, in order to stop the distribution member at the first rotation position and the second rotation position, the auxiliary member is brought into contact with the restricting portion and stopped, so that the vibration member connected to the auxiliary member is stopped. The rotation of the minute member is indirectly restricted. Thus, even when the sorting member is reduced in size and weight by not contacting the sorting member directly with the stopper, the game ball is allowed to flow in a predetermined direction (the direction in which the game ball flows down to the first region or the second flow down). The direction does not return to the original position (position where the game ball flows down in a predetermined direction) after reaction. Further, by eliminating contact with the stopper, it is possible to reduce the impact applied to the sorting member and prevent breakage.

Here, in the present invention, the distribution member includes a connecting piece 13 extending below the receiving portion, and the auxiliary member has an opening (the long hole 15) formed in the connecting piece 13. The distribution member and the auxiliary member are coupled by engaging the engagement member 24 with the opening, and the inner edge of the opening and the engagement member A gap C is formed so that the engagement member 24 does not come into contact with the inner edge of the opening even when the auxiliary member bounces back due to a reaction when it comes into contact with the restricting portion. can do.
By forming in this way, even if the auxiliary member comes into contact with the restricting portion and rebounds and the engagement member 24 moves, the gap C can absorb the movement, and the movement of the engagement member 24 causes the connecting piece 13 to move. It is possible to prevent the sorting member from rotating and returning to the original position.

  According to the present invention, it is possible to provide a gaming machine provided with a sorting device that can distribute game balls satisfactorily even with a light and compact structure.

Further, as shown in FIG. 7, a shaft hole 53 that receives the rear end of the rotation shaft 70 is formed on the upper side of the concave portion 51, and the rear end of the swing shaft 80 is received on the lower side of the concave portion 51. A shaft hole 54 is formed.

The base plate 60 is a thin plate member disposed between the front cover 40 and the back cover 50, and as shown in FIGS. 4 and 8, the disc of the sorting rotator 10 that is fixed to the rotation shaft 70. The portion 11 can be disposed inside, and an opening 61 is formed so as not to interfere with the movement locus of the engaging member 24 of the link member 20 inserted through the long hole 15 of the connecting piece 13 of the sorting rotator 10. ing. That is, the opening 61 has a shape in which a circular portion 61a for disposing the disk portion 11 of the sorting rotator 10 inside and a fan-shaped portion 61b for preventing interference with the movement locus of the engaging member 24 are continuous. (See FIG. 4). In addition, two circular openings 62 are formed in the horizontal direction below the opening 61, and two ridges communicating with the two openings 62 are formed on the back surface of the base plate 60. A portion 63 is formed. The opening 62 and the flange 63 also constitute the first sphere passage 34 and the second sphere passage 35.
As shown in FIG. 7, a shaft hole 64 that receives the front end of the swing shaft 80 is formed on the back surface of the base plate 60.

  In the state where the front cover 40, the back cover 50, and the base plate 60 are combined, as shown in FIG. 7, the sorting rotator 10 having the shaft hole 14 penetrating the rotation shaft 70 has the front cover 40 and the back cover. The link member 20 is pivotally supported between the base plate 60 and the back cover 50 and is pivotally supported between the base plate 60 and the back cover 50. Further, the disc portion 11 of the sorting rotator 10 is located in the opening 61 of the base plate 60, the blade portion 12 is located on the front side of the base plate 60, and the connecting piece 13 is from the back side of the base plate 60. Is also located behind. As shown in FIG. 9, the engaging member 24 of the link member 20 is positioned in the elongated hole 15 of the connecting piece 13, and the protrusion 23 of the link member 20 is positioned inside the sector-shaped recess 51 of the back cover 50. doing. Further, as shown in FIG. 7, the ball receiving portion 44 of the front cover 40 and the opening 62 of the base plate 60 are matched, and the flange 63 is located in the opening 52 of the back cover 50 as shown in FIG. It is supposed to be located in. Then, the game balls received at the introduction port 31 are distributed by the sorting rotator 10 and fall to the ball receiving portion 44, and the game balls transferred from the ball receiving portion 44 pass through the opening 62 and the collar portion 63. , Are guided to the opening 52. Note that the recess 51 and the protrusion 23 are not a ball passage region (between the front cover 40 and the base plate 60) through which the game ball passes, but a region (between the base plate 60 and the back cover 50) through which the game ball does not pass. Since the first ball passage 34 and the second ball passage 35 are provided above the first ball passage 34 and the second ball passage 35, the influence of the passage of the game ball on the movement of the link member 20 can be minimized. .

As shown in FIG. 7, the sorting apparatus 1 fixes the base plate 60 to the front side of the game board 110 in a state where the back cover 50 is housed in the opening 110 </ b> A provided in the game board 110. It is attached to the game board 110. Then, the game balls flowing down the game board 110 are received from the introduction port 31 formed by the gap between the two side wall portions 42 of the front cover 40 and the base plate 60, but the game balls that are not received by the introduction port 31 are: Since the outer surface of the side wall part 42 slides down, the ball receiving part 44 does not receive it.
In addition, the thickness of the back cover 50 in the front-rear direction is formed thinner than the thickness of the front cover 40 in the front-rear direction, and is smaller than the diameter of the game ball. Furthermore, the thickness of the back cover 50 in the front-rear direction is formed to be approximately the same as the thickness of the game board 110. As a result, the distribution device 1 does not get in the way when a movable accessory for production or the like is placed at a position behind the game board 110 and above the distribution device 1.

(Operation of the sorting apparatus 1)
Next, the distribution of game balls by the distribution device 1 will be described in detail.
As shown in FIG. 8 or FIG. 9, is the sorting rotator 10 stationary at a rotation position where the sorting blade 12 </ b> A is tilted to the right when viewed from the front (stops and does not move) as shown in FIG. 8 or 9? Alternatively, as shown in FIG. 10 (B), the sorting blade 12A is stationary at a rotational position where the sorting blade 12A is tilted to the left. In a stationary state in which the sorting blade 12A is tilted to the right side, the projection 23 of the link member 20 is in contact with the left wall 51A (see FIG. 11) of the recess 51 and the link member 20 is rotated to the leftmost side. In the stationary state in which the sorting blade 12A is tilted to the left side, the projection 23 of the link member 20 contacts the right wall 51B (see FIG. 11) of the recess 51 and the link member 20 rotates to the rightmost side. It has been moved. 11A is a diagram of the sorting rotator 10 viewed from the front, and FIG. 11B is a diagram of FIG. 11A viewed from the back. In such a stationary state, as shown in FIG. 8, a space formed between the left side of the distributing blade 12A and the upper side of the receiving blade 12B, or the right side of the distributing blade 12A and the receiving blade 12C. Any of the space portions formed between the upper side of the two faces the introduction port 31.

  For example, when the sorting rotator 10 is in the rotation position shown in FIG. 9 (the position where the sorting blade 12A is tilted to the right and the receiving blade 12B is in a substantially horizontal state), the game ball is introduced from the inlet 31. When is entered, the game ball is guided to the left side of the sorting blade 12A (see FIG. 8). And the receiving blade 12B (receiving part) is pushed down by the dead weight of the game ball which falls, and the disc part 11 of the sorting rotator 10 rotates counterclockwise. Accordingly, the connecting piece 13 pushes the engagement member 24 rightward at the edge of the long hole 15, and the link member 20 rotates rightward as shown in FIG. And when a game ball leaves | separates from the receiving blade 12B and flows down into the 1st flow path 32, since the gravity center of the link member 20 inclines to the right side, the rocking | swiveling part 22 of the link member 20 rotates clockwise. Then, since the engaging member 24 pushes the edge of the long hole 15 of the connecting piece 13 in the right direction, the disk portion 11 of the sorting rotator 10 further rotates counterclockwise. Then, when the projection 23 of the link member 20 contacts the right wall 51B (see FIG. 11) of the recess 51, as shown in FIG. 10B, the sorting blade 12A is tilted to the left, and the sorting is performed. The rotating body 10 stops.

  Further, when the sorting rotator 10 is in the rotation position shown in FIG. 10B (the sorting blade 12A is tilted to the left and the receiving blade 12C is in a substantially horizontal state), the inlet 31 is provided. When the game ball enters from, the game ball is guided to the right side of the sorting blade 12A. Then, the receiving blade 12C (receiving portion) is pushed down by the dead weight of the falling game ball, the disc portion 11 of the sorting rotator 10 rotates clockwise, and the game ball flows down to the second flow path 33. . Then, when the projection 23 of the link member 20 contacts the left wall 51A (see FIG. 11) of the recess 51, as shown in FIGS. 8 and 9, the sorting blade 12A is tilted to the right and the sorting is performed. The rotating body 10 stops. That is, the right wall portion 51B and the left wall portion 51A of the recess 51 function as a restricting portion that restricts the rotation range (swing range) of the link member 20 in the left-right direction.

  As described above, the game balls that have entered the sorting apparatus 1 are alternately distributed to the first flow path 32 and the second flow path 33 by the sorting rotator 10. The game ball that has flowed down to the first flow path 32 is guided to the first ball outlet 36 through the first ball passage 34, and the game ball that has flowed down to the second flow path 33 passes through the second ball path 35 to the second position. It is guided to the 2-ball exit 37. Then, the game ball guided to the first ball outlet 36 is detected by a sensor (a first start winning port detection sensor (not shown)), so that it is treated that the game ball has entered the first start winning port 150. When the game ball guided to the second ball outlet 37 is detected by a sensor (a second start winning port detection sensor not shown), the game ball is treated as having entered the second start winning port 160A. It has come to be. That is, as a result, the sorting apparatus 1 distributes the game balls received at the introduction port 31 to the first start winning port 150A and the second start winning port 160A by the sorting rotating body 10. .

  Here, when the rotation of the sorting rotator 10 is directly stopped by the stopper, it is most effective to stop the blade portion 12 protruding forward against the stopper. Further, if the length of the blade portion 12 of the sorting rotator 10 is increased or the weight of the sorting rotator 10 is increased to some extent, the sorting rotator 10 can be moved even if the blade portion 12 directly contacts the stopper. It is possible to prevent rotation due to the reaction that comes into contact with the stopper. However, if the sorting rotator 10 is reduced in size and weight, there is a possibility that the sorting rotator 10 may rotate due to the reaction that comes into contact with the stopper. Furthermore, since the wing portion 12 is frequently in contact with the game ball, the wing portion 12 is more easily damaged than other portions. If the wing portion 12 is further brought into contact with the stopper, the risk of breakage increases. . In particular, if the sorting rotator 10 is reduced in size and weight, the tendency becomes remarkable.

  In this regard, in the present embodiment, a restriction for restricting the swing range of the link member 20 connected to the sorting rotator 10 without providing a stopper for directly stopping the rotation of the allocating rotator 10. (The right wall 51B and the left wall 51A of the recess 51) are provided. Then, the linking rotating body 10 is indirectly stopped by stopping the link member 20 that assists the rotation and stopping of the allocating rotating body 10 by the restricting portion. As a result, even if the sorting rotator 10 is reduced in size and weight, it is possible to prevent the sorting rotator 10 from rotating due to the reaction against the stopper, and the risk of the sorting rotator 10 being damaged. Can be lowered.

  In the present embodiment, as shown in FIG. 11A, the engaging member 24 of the link member 20 and the long hole 15 of the connecting piece 13 of the sorting rotator 10 with which the engaging member 24 engages. A certain gap C is provided between the inner edge and the inner edge. Thereby, when the projection part 23 of the link member 20 contacts the lateral wall parts (the left wall part 51A and the right wall part 51B) of the concave part 51, the reaction causes the link member 20 to move to the center side (FIG. 11A). Even if it bounces in the direction of the white arrow), the gap C can absorb the movement of the position of the engaging member 24 and can prevent the sorting rotator 10 from being affected as much as possible. That is, the engagement member 24 is brought into contact with the inner edge of the long hole 15 along with the bounce of the link member 20 to move the connecting piece 13, thereby preventing the disk portion 11 of the sorting rotator 10 from rotating. be able to.

  In the above-described embodiment, the left wall portion 51A and the right wall portion 51B of the fan-shaped recess 51 are provided as the restricting portions that lock the protrusion 23 of the link member 20. However, the recess 51 is a fan-shaped recess. It is not restricted to a thing, For example, it is good also considering the left wall part and right wall part of a rectangular-shaped recessed part as a control part. Further, the restriction portion is not limited to the concave portion but may be an opening portion. In short, it is only necessary to be able to regulate the swing range of the link member 20 by contacting a part of the link member 20. For example, as the restricting portion, two protrusions that can come into contact with the left and right side end portions of the swinging portion 21 of the link member 20 may be provided on the front surface of the back cover 50 or the back surface of the base plate 60. Alternatively, a recess is provided in the link member 20, and a protrusion as a restricting portion that protrudes into the recess is provided in front of the back cover 50, and the left and right wall portions of the recess of the link member 20 abut the protrusion of the back cover 50. By contacting, the swing range of the link member 20 may be regulated.

  In the above-described embodiment, the distribution device 1 distributes the game balls to the first start winning port 150 and the second start winning port 160A. However, the distribution of game balls is limited to these. Absent. For example, it is good also as a structure distributed to the 1st start winning opening 150 and the gate 200. FIG.

  In addition, the sorting rotator 10 in the above-described embodiment corresponds to a sorting device of the present invention, and the blade portion 12 of the sorting rotator 10 corresponds to a receiving portion of the present invention. The link member 20 in the above-described embodiment corresponds to an auxiliary member of the present invention. Further, the first start winning port 150 in the above-described embodiment corresponds to the first region of the present invention, and the second start winning port 160A in the above-described embodiment corresponds to the second region of the present invention. 9 corresponds to the first rotation position of the present invention, and the rotation position of the distribution rotation body 10 shown in FIG. 10B is the first rotation position of the present invention. This corresponds to a rotational position of 2. And the left wall part 51A and the right wall part 51B of the recessed part 51 in an above-described embodiment are equivalent to the control part of this invention.
