特開2008−161360号公報JP 2008-161360 A
前記パチンコ機では、近年の図柄表示装置の大型化に伴い、枠状装飾体における開口部を大きくして、インパクトのある図柄変動演出を行う傾向にある。また、枠状装飾体の内側に、パチンコ機のモチーフとなるキャラクタ等の意匠を施した装飾部材を配設することで、興趣を向上すると共に他機種との差別化を図っている。この装飾部材は、図柄表示装置での図柄変動演出の視認性を確保する必要から、該装飾部材を大型化するためには枠状装飾体の更なる大型化が必要となるが、遊技盤の前面において枠状装飾体が占める面積が大きくなるのに従って遊技領域が狭くなってしまい、遊技領域に植設し得る遊技釘が少なくなってパチンコ球が流下する態様が単調なものとなる問題を招く。すなわち、図柄表示装置の大型化を図ると共に、遊技球に興趣のある動きを与え得るだけの遊技領域を確保しようとすると、枠状装飾体に配設可能な装飾部材の大きさが限定されてしまい、インパクトのある大型の装飾部材を採用し得なかった。   In the pachinko machine, with the recent increase in the size of the symbol display device, the opening in the frame-shaped decorative body tends to be enlarged to produce a symbol variation effect with impact. Further, by arranging a decorative member with a design such as a character as a motif of a pachinko machine inside the frame-shaped decorative body, the interest is improved and differentiation from other models is achieved. Since this decorative member needs to ensure the visibility of the symbol variation effect on the symbol display device, it is necessary to further increase the size of the frame-shaped decorative body in order to increase the size of the decorative member. As the area occupied by the frame-shaped decorative body increases on the front surface, the game area becomes narrower, and there are fewer game nails that can be implanted in the game area, causing a problem that the pachinko ball flows down monotonously. . In other words, when trying to increase the size of the symbol display device and to secure a game area that can give an interesting movement to the game ball, the size of the decorative member that can be arranged on the frame-shaped decorative body is limited. Therefore, a large decorative member having an impact could not be adopted.
すなわち本発明は、従来の技術に係る遊技機に内在する前記課題に鑑み、これを好適に解決するべく提案されたものであって、遊技球に興趣のある動きを与え得ると共に、装飾部材の大型化によりインパクトを与えることができる遊技機を提供することを目的とする。   That is, the present invention has been proposed to solve this problem in view of the above-described problems inherent in the gaming machine according to the prior art, and can provide an interesting movement to the game ball and An object is to provide a gaming machine capable of giving an impact by increasing its size.

(About the relationship between the protrusions 44, 45, 46 and the left rolling surface 70)
The relationship between the protrusions 44, 45, 46 and the left rolling surface 70 will be specifically described. As shown in FIG. 5, the left rolling surface 70 defining the heel side flow path 71 is inclined (a lower angle that intersects a reference line passing through the center of the game board 20 in the vertical direction). A plurality of surface portions 70a, 70b, 70c, and 70d having different values are formed in a continuous step shape. That is, the left rolling surface 70 is steeper than the first surface portion 70a inclined downward so as to gradually approach the upper first protrusion 44 with the lower end of the step portion 36b as the inclined upper end, and the inclined lower end portion of the first surface portion 70a. A second surface portion 70b that is continuous with the lower inclined end of the first surface portion 70a so as to be inclined downward, and extends from below the right end of the upper first protrusion portion 44 to below the left end of the upper first protrusion portion 44, and From the lower end of the upper first protrusion 44 to the lower end of the lower first protrusion 45 from the lower end of the upper first protrusion 44 to the lower end of the upper first protrusion 44. A third surface portion 70c extending toward the downstream side, and a lower end of the third surface portion 70c that is continuous with the lower end of the slope of the third surface portion 70a so as to incline downward from the lower end of the third surface portion 70c. Below the left end of the second protrusion 46 from the upstream And a fourth surface portion 70d that extends more toward the downstream. The second surface portion 70b is opposed to the opposed surface 44a of the upper first projecting portion 44 and extends so that the facing interval is separated toward the downstream side. Further, the third surface portion 70c is opposed to the facing surface 45a of the lower first projecting portion 45 and extends so that the facing distance becomes closer toward the downstream side. On the other hand, the fourth surface portion 70 d extends substantially parallel to the facing surface 46 a of the second protrusion 46. And the heel side flow path 71 is comprised so that the pachinko ball rolling on the left rolling surface 70 may collide with the upper and lower 1st protrusion parts 44 and 45 and the 2nd protrusion part 46, and the said pachinko ball may be decelerated. ing.
(上第1突出部44について)
図5,図9に示すように、前記上第1突出部44は、前記外レール24からパチンコ球の直径以上に離間するよう設けられ、打出し口21bから打ち出されたパチンコ球が外レール24との間を通過して第2球流下領域23b側に飛翔したり、外レール24の途中で飛翔する勢いを失って上第1突出部44の上に落下したりするのを許容するよう設けられている。そして、上第1突出部44における庇状部36の左転動面70との対向面44aaが、当該左転動面70から1個のパチンコ球が通過可能な間隔で離間するよう構成されて、当該対向面44aと庇状部70との間にパチンコ球が一列で流下可能な前記庇側流路71の一部を画成するようになっている。
(About the upper first protrusion 44)
As shown in FIGS. 5 and 9, the upper first projecting portion 44 is provided so as to be separated from the outer rail 24 by a distance equal to or larger than the diameter of the pachinko ball, and the pachinko ball launched from the launch port 21 b is provided on the outer rail 24. To fly to the second ball flow down region 23b side, or to lose the momentum of flying in the middle of the outer rail 24 and fall onto the upper first protrusion 44. It has been. And the surface 44aa facing the left rolling surface 70 of the bowl-shaped portion 36 in the upper first projecting portion 44 is configured to be separated from the left rolling surface 70 at an interval through which one pachinko ball can pass. A part of the ridge-side flow path 71 is defined between the facing surface 44a and the bowl-shaped portion 70 so that pachinko balls can flow in a single row.
前記上第1突出部44は、打出し口21bに近接する側(左側)の端部から離間する側(右側)の端部にかけて次第に外レール24に近接するよう延在する受け面44bが設けられており、当該受け面44bが外レール24に対向するようになっている。このように、上第1突出部44の受け面44bは、当該受け面44bに直交する垂線が打出し口21b側に傾くよう形成されている。すなわち、打出し口21bから遊技領域23に打ち出されて上第1突出部44の受け面44bにパチンコ球が接触した際に、当該受け面44bの傾斜により減勢してパチンコ球が庇状部36に接触する際の衝撃を緩和すると共に、打出し口21bから離間する方向(庇状部36の段部36b側)へパチンコ球を受け流し得るよう構成されている。このように、上第1突出部44の受け面44bに接触したパチンコ球を、打出し口21bから離間する方向に受け流すことで、外レール24に沿って打ち出される次のパチンコ球との接触を回避して、当該次のパチンコ球の飛翔を阻害するのを防ぐようになっている。   The upper first projecting portion 44 is provided with a receiving surface 44b extending from the end on the side (left side) close to the launch port 21b to the end on the side (right side) away from the end 21b. The receiving surface 44 b faces the outer rail 24. As described above, the receiving surface 44b of the upper first protrusion 44 is formed such that a perpendicular perpendicular to the receiving surface 44b is inclined toward the launch port 21b. That is, when the pachinko ball comes into contact with the receiving surface 44b of the upper first projecting portion 44 from the launching port 21b and the pachinko ball comes into contact with the receiving surface 44b, the pachinko ball is reduced by the inclination of the receiving surface 44b and the pachinko ball is In addition to alleviating the impact when contacting 36, the pachinko ball can be swept away in the direction away from the launch port 21b (the stepped portion 36b side of the bowl-shaped portion 36). In this manner, the pachinko ball that has contacted the receiving surface 44b of the upper first protrusion 44 is flushed away in the direction away from the launch port 21b, thereby making contact with the next pachinko ball launched along the outer rail 24. By avoiding this, the flight of the next pachinko ball is prevented from being hindered.
また、図5に示すように、前記上第1突出部44は、前記受け面44bの傾斜上端部に、打出し口21bから離間する側(右側)に下方傾斜する傾斜面44cが連続するように設けられており、当該傾斜面44cが前記外レール24に対向するようになっている。前記上第1突出部44の傾斜面44cは、当該傾斜面44cに直交する垂線が打出し口21bから離間する側に傾くよう形成されている。すなわち、打出し口21bから遊技領域23に打ち出されて上第1突出部44の傾斜面44cに接触したパチンコ球を、当該傾斜面44cの傾斜により減勢してパチンコ球が庇状部36に接触する際の衝撃を緩和すると共に、打出し口21bから離間する方向(庇状部36の段部36b側)へパチンコ球を受け流し得るよう構成されている。また、上第1突出部44の傾斜面44cは、その傾斜により当該傾斜面44c上のパチンコ球を外レール24から離間する方向へ転動させるよう構成されており、前記遊技領域形成部43の前側に画成された枠側遊技領域Sから外レール24側へのパチンコ球の移動を制限する移動制限手段として機能するようになっている。すなわち、上第1突出部44の傾斜面44cに接触するパチンコ球を、打出し口21bから離間する方向に受け流すことで、外レール24に沿って打ち出される次のパチンコ球との接触を回避して、当該次のパチンコ球の飛翔を阻害するのを防ぐようになっている。なお、前記上第1突出部44の傾斜面44cの傾斜下端部は、当該上第1突出部44の前記対向面44aの上端部に連続するよう構成されている。   Further, as shown in FIG. 5, the upper first projecting portion 44 has an inclined upper end portion of the receiving surface 44b and an inclined surface 44c inclined downward on the side (right side) away from the launch port 21b. The inclined surface 44c is opposed to the outer rail 24. The inclined surface 44c of the upper first protrusion 44 is formed so that a perpendicular perpendicular to the inclined surface 44c is inclined to the side away from the launch port 21b. That is, the pachinko ball that has been launched from the launch port 21b into the game area 23 and has come into contact with the inclined surface 44c of the upper first protrusion 44 is reduced by the inclination of the inclined surface 44c, and the pachinko ball becomes the bowl-shaped portion 36. In addition to alleviating the impact at the time of contact, the pachinko ball can be swept away in the direction away from the launch port 21b (the stepped portion 36b side of the bowl-like portion 36). In addition, the inclined surface 44c of the upper first protrusion 44 is configured to roll the pachinko ball on the inclined surface 44c in a direction away from the outer rail 24 by the inclination, It functions as a movement restricting means for restricting the movement of the pachinko ball from the frame side game area S defined on the front side to the outer rail 24 side. That is, by passing the pachinko ball that contacts the inclined surface 44c of the upper first protrusion 44 in a direction away from the launch port 21b, contact with the next pachinko ball launched along the outer rail 24 is avoided. Thus, the flight of the next pachinko ball is prevented from being hindered. The inclined lower end portion of the inclined surface 44 c of the upper first protruding portion 44 is configured to be continuous with the upper end portion of the facing surface 44 a of the upper first protruding portion 44.
更に、上第1突出部44には、前記受け面44bの傾斜下端と対向面44aの傾斜下端部の夫々に連設する側面44dを有している。上第1突出部44の側面44dは、図5に示す如く、下第1突出部45から離間する方向に凹となる曲面状に形成されており、打出し口21bから放出されたパチンコ球を受けて庇側流路71側(前記第3面部70c)に落下させるようになっている。すなわち、上第1突出部44の側面44dに接触するパチンコ球を庇側流路71側に落下させるように弾くことで、外レール24に沿って打ち出される次のパチンコ球との接触を回避して、当該次のパチンコ球の飛翔を阻害するのを防ぐようになっている。   Further, the upper first projecting portion 44 has a side surface 44d connected to the inclined lower end of the receiving surface 44b and the inclined lower end of the opposing surface 44a. As shown in FIG. 5, the side surface 44d of the upper first projecting portion 44 is formed in a curved surface that is concave in a direction away from the lower first projecting portion 45, and the pachinko balls discharged from the launch port 21b are formed. In response to this, it is allowed to drop to the side channel 71 side (the third surface portion 70c). That is, the pachinko ball that contacts the side surface 44d of the upper first projecting portion 44 is flipped so as to drop toward the heel side flow path 71, thereby avoiding contact with the next pachinko ball that is launched along the outer rail 24. Thus, the flight of the next pachinko ball is prevented from being hindered.
(下第1突出部45について)
前記下第1突出部45は、図5に示すように、前記外レール24からパチンコ球の直径以上に離間するように設けられ、打出し口21bから遊技領域23に打ち込まれたパチンコ球が外レール24との間を通過して第2球流下領域23b側に飛翔したり、外レール24の途中で飛翔する勢いを失って第1突出部44,45の上に落下したりするのを許容するよう設けられている。そして、下第1突出部45における庇状部36の左転動面70との対向面45aが、当該左転動面70から1個のパチンコ球が通過可能な間隔で離間するよう構成されて、当該対向面45aと庇状部36(左転動面70)との間にパチンコ球が一列で流下可能な前記庇側流路71の一部を画成するようになっている。
(About the lower first protrusion 45)
As shown in FIG. 5, the lower first protrusion 45 is provided so as to be separated from the outer rail 24 by a distance equal to or larger than the diameter of the pachinko ball, and the pachinko ball driven into the game area 23 from the launch port 21b is externally provided. Allowed to pass between the rails 24 and fly to the second ball flow down region 23b side, or to lose the momentum of flying in the middle of the outer rails 24 and fall onto the first protrusions 44 and 45 It is provided to do. And the opposing surface 45a with the left rolling surface 70 of the bowl-shaped part 36 in the lower 1st protrusion part 45 is comprised so that it may space apart from the said left rolling surface 70 at the space | interval which one pachinko ball can pass. A part of the ridge-side flow path 71 is defined between the facing surface 45a and the bowl-shaped portion 36 (the left rolling surface 70) so that pachinko balls can flow in a single row.
前記下第1突出部45は、打出し口21bに近接する側(左側)の端部から離間する側(右側)の端部にかけて次第に外レール24に近接するよう延在する受け面45bが設けられており、当該受け面45bが外レール24に対向するようになっている。このように、下第1突出部45の受け面45bは、当該受け面45bに直交する垂線が打出し口21b側に傾くよう形成されている。すなわち、打出し口21bから遊技領域23に打ち出されて下第1突出部45の受け面45bにパチンコ球が接触した際に、当該受け面45bの傾斜により減勢してパチンコ球が庇状部36に接触する際の衝撃を緩和するようになっている。また、下第1突出部45の受け面45bの水平面に対する傾斜角度は、前記上第1突出部44の受け面44bの水平面に対する傾斜角度と比べて大きくなるよう形成されている。すなわち、打出し口21bから遊技領域23に打ち出されて下第1突出部45の受け面45bに接触したパチンコ球を、第2突出部46側に跳ね返し得るよう構成されている。   The lower first protrusion 45 is provided with a receiving surface 45b extending gradually from the end on the side (left side) close to the launch port 21b to the end on the side (right side) away from the end 21b. The receiving surface 45 b faces the outer rail 24. Thus, the receiving surface 45b of the lower first projecting portion 45 is formed such that a perpendicular perpendicular to the receiving surface 45b is inclined toward the launching port 21b. That is, when the pachinko ball comes into contact with the receiving surface 45b of the lower first projecting portion 45 from the launching port 21b and the pachinko ball comes into contact with the receiving surface 45b, the pachinko ball is reduced by the inclination of the receiving surface 45b. The impact at the time of contacting 36 is mitigated. In addition, the inclination angle of the receiving surface 45b of the lower first protrusion 45 with respect to the horizontal plane is formed to be larger than the inclination angle of the receiving surface 44b of the upper first protrusion 44 with respect to the horizontal plane. That is, the pachinko ball that has been launched from the launch opening 21b into the game area 23 and has come into contact with the receiving surface 45b of the lower first projection 45 can be rebounded to the second projection 46 side.
また、図5に示すように、前記下第1突出部45は、前記受け面45bの傾斜上端部に、打出し口21bから離間する側(右側)に下方傾斜する上傾斜面45cが連続するように設けられており、当該上傾斜面45cが前記外レール24に対向するようになっている。前記下第1突出部45の上傾斜面45cは、当該上傾斜面45cに直交する垂線が打出し口21bから離間する側に傾くよう形成されている。すなわち、打出し口21bから遊技領域23に打ち出されて下第1突出部45の上傾斜面45cに接触したパチンコ球を、当該上傾斜面45cの傾斜により減勢してパチンコ球が庇状部36に接触する際の衝撃を緩和すると共に、打出し口21bから離間する方向(上第1突出部44側)へパチンコ球を受け流し得るよう構成されている。また、下第1突出部45の上傾斜面45cは、その傾斜により上傾斜面45c上のパチンコ球を外レール24から離間する方向へ転動させるよう構成されており、前記遊技領域形成部43の前側に画成された枠側遊技領域Sから外レール24側へのパチンコ球の移動を制限する移動制限手段として機能するようになっている。すなわち、下第1突出部45の上傾斜面45cに接触するパチンコ球を、打出し口21bから離間する方向に受け流すことで、外レール24に沿って打ち出される次のパチンコ球との接触を回避して、当該次のパチンコ球の飛翔を阻害するのを防ぐようになっている。更に、下第1突出部45には、前記上傾斜面45cの傾斜下端と対向面45aの傾斜上端の夫々に連設する下傾斜面45dを有している。この下傾斜面45dは、前記上第1突出部44の側面44dと対向しており、該側面44dに当って跳ね返ったパチンコ球を庇側流路71側に落下させるように弾くことで、上第1突出部44と下第1突出部45との間の突出部間流路72でパチンコ球のスムーズな流れが阻害されるのを防止するようになっている。   Further, as shown in FIG. 5, the lower first projecting portion 45 has an upper inclined surface 45c inclined downward on the side (right side) away from the launch port 21b and the inclined upper end portion of the receiving surface 45b. The upper inclined surface 45c is opposed to the outer rail 24. The upper inclined surface 45c of the lower first protrusion 45 is formed such that a perpendicular perpendicular to the upper inclined surface 45c is inclined to the side away from the launch port 21b. That is, the pachinko ball that is launched from the launch port 21b into the game area 23 and contacts the upper inclined surface 45c of the lower first projecting portion 45 is reduced by the inclination of the upper inclined surface 45c, so that the pachinko ball becomes a bowl-shaped portion. In addition to alleviating the impact at the time of contacting 36, the pachinko balls can be received in the direction away from the launch port 21b (upper first projecting portion 44 side). Further, the upper inclined surface 45c of the lower first projecting portion 45 is configured to roll the pachinko ball on the upper inclined surface 45c in a direction away from the outer rail 24 by the inclination, and the gaming area forming portion 43 It functions as a movement restricting means for restricting the movement of the pachinko ball from the frame side game area S defined on the front side to the outer rail 24 side. That is, by passing the pachinko ball that contacts the upper inclined surface 45c of the lower first protrusion 45 in a direction away from the launch port 21b, contact with the next pachinko ball launched along the outer rail 24 is avoided. Thus, the flight of the next pachinko sphere is prevented from being inhibited. Further, the lower first projecting portion 45 has a lower inclined surface 45d connected to the inclined lower end of the upper inclined surface 45c and the inclined upper end of the facing surface 45a. The lower inclined surface 45d faces the side surface 44d of the upper first protrusion 44, and the pachinko ball bounced off the side surface 44d is bounced down so as to drop to the heel side flow path 71 side. The smooth flow of the pachinko sphere is prevented from being obstructed by the flow path 72 between the protrusions between the first protrusion 44 and the lower first protrusion 45.
また、前記下第1突出部45には、前記受け面45bの傾斜下端と対向面45aの傾斜下端部の夫々に連設する側面45eを有している。下第1突出部45の側面45eは、前記第2突出部46の下部側に対向すると共に、上端から下端に向けて右側に傾斜しており、打出し口21bから放出されたパチンコ球を受けて庇側流路71側に落下させるようになっている。すなわち、下第1突出部45の側面45eに接触するパチンコ球を庇側流路71側に落下させるように弾くことで、外レール24に沿って打ち出される次のパチンコ球との接触を回避して、当該次のパチンコ球の飛翔を阻害するのを防ぐようになっている。   Further, the lower first projecting portion 45 has a side surface 45e connected to the inclined lower end of the receiving surface 45b and the inclined lower end of the facing surface 45a. A side surface 45e of the lower first projecting portion 45 faces the lower side of the second projecting portion 46 and is inclined to the right from the upper end toward the lower end, and receives a pachinko ball released from the launch port 21b. Then, it is made to fall to the side channel 71 side. That is, the pachinko ball that contacts the side surface 45e of the lower first protrusion 45 is flipped so as to drop toward the heel side flow path 71, thereby avoiding contact with the next pachinko ball that is launched along the outer rail 24. Thus, the flight of the next pachinko ball is prevented from being hindered.
(第2突出部46について)
前記第2突出部46は、図5に示すように、前記外レール24に対してパチンコ球の直径以上に離間するよう設けられ、打出し口21bから前記遊技領域23に打ち出されたパチンコ球が外レール24との間を通過して第2球流下経路23b側に飛翔したり、外レール24の途中で飛翔する勢いを失って突出部44,45,46の上に落下したりするのを許容するよう設けられている。そして、第2突出部46における庇状部36の左転動面70との対向面46aが、当該左転動面70から1個のパチンコ球が通過可能な間隔で離間するよう構成されて、当該対向面46aと庇状部36との間にパチンコ球が一列で流下可能な前記庇側流路71の一部を画成するようになっている。
(About the second protrusion 46)
As shown in FIG. 5, the second protrusion 46 is provided so as to be separated from the outer rail 24 by a distance larger than the diameter of the pachinko ball, and the pachinko ball launched into the game area 23 from the launch port 21b. Passing between the outer rails 24 and flying to the second ball flow path 23b side, or losing the momentum to fly in the middle of the outer rails 24 and falling onto the protrusions 44, 45, and 46 It is provided to allow. Then, the facing surface 46a of the second protrusion 46 facing the left rolling surface 70 of the bowl-shaped portion 36 is configured to be separated from the left rolling surface 70 at an interval through which one pachinko ball can pass, A part of the ridge-side flow path 71 is defined between the facing surface 46a and the bowl-shaped portion 36 so that pachinko balls can flow in a single row.
また、図5に示すように、前記第2突出部46は、打出し口21bに近接する側(左側)の端部から離間する側(右側)の端部にかけて次第に外レール24に近接するよう延在する受け面46bが設けられており、当該受け面46bが外レール24に対向するようになっている。このように、第2突出部46の受け面46bは、当該受け面46bに直交する垂線が打出し口21b側に傾くよう形成されている。すなわち、打出し口21bから遊技領域23に打ち出されて第2突出部46の受け面46bにパチンコ球が接触した際に、当該受け面46bの傾斜により減勢してパチンコ球が庇状部36に接触する際の衝撃を緩和すると共に、打出し口21bから離間する方向(下第1突出部45側)へパチンコ球を受け流し得るよう構成されている。このように、第2突出部46の受け面46bに接触したパチンコ球を、打出し口21bから離間する方向に受け流すことで、外レール24に沿って打ち出される次のパチンコ球との接触を回避して、当該次のパチンコ球の飛翔を阻害するのを防ぐようになっている。   Further, as shown in FIG. 5, the second projecting portion 46 gradually approaches the outer rail 24 from the end portion on the side (left side) close to the launch port 21b to the end portion on the side (right side) separated. An extending receiving surface 46 b is provided, and the receiving surface 46 b faces the outer rail 24. Thus, the receiving surface 46b of the 2nd protrusion part 46 is formed so that the perpendicular orthogonal to the said receiving surface 46b may incline to the launching opening 21b side. That is, when the pachinko ball comes into contact with the receiving surface 46b of the second projecting portion 46 from the launch port 21b and the pachinko ball comes into contact with the receiving surface 46b, the pachinko ball is reduced by the inclination of the receiving surface 46b so It is configured to relieve the impact when contacting the ball and to allow the pachinko ball to flow away in the direction away from the launch port 21b (the lower first protrusion 45 side). In this way, the pachinko ball that has contacted the receiving surface 46b of the second protrusion 46 is flushed away from the launch port 21b, thereby avoiding contact with the next pachinko ball that is launched along the outer rail 24. Thus, the flight of the next pachinko sphere is prevented from being inhibited.
また、図5に示すように、前記第2突出部46は、前記受け面46bの傾斜上端部に、打出し口21bから離間する側(右側)に下方傾斜する傾斜面46cが設けられており、当該傾斜面46cが前記外レール24に対向するようになっている。前記第2突出部46の傾斜面46cは、当該傾斜面46cに直交する垂線が打出し口21bから離間する側に傾くよう形成されている。すなわち、打出し口21bから遊技領域23に打ち出されて第2突出部46の傾斜面46cに接触したパチンコ球を、当該傾斜面46cの傾斜により減勢してパチンコ球が庇状部36に接触する際の衝撃を緩和すると共に、打出し口21bから離間する方向(下第1突出部45側)へパチンコ球を受け流し得るよう構成されている。また、第2突出部46の傾斜面46cは、その傾斜により当該傾斜面46c上のパチンコ球を外レール24から離間する方向へ転動させるよう構成されており、前記遊技領域23において遊技領域形成部43の前側に画成された枠側遊技領域Sから外レール24側へのパチンコ球の移動を制限する移動制限手段として機能するようになっている。すなわち、第2突出部46の傾斜面46cに接触するパチンコ球を、打出し口21bから離間する方向に受け流すことで、外レール24に沿って打ち出される次のパチンコ球との接触を回避して、当該次のパチンコ球の飛翔を阻害するのを防ぐようになっている。なお、前記第2突出部46の傾斜面46cの傾斜下端部は、当該第2突出部46の前記対向面46aの上端部に連続するよう構成されている。   Further, as shown in FIG. 5, the second protrusion 46 is provided with an inclined surface 46c inclined downward on the side (right side) away from the launching port 21b at the inclined upper end of the receiving surface 46b. The inclined surface 46c faces the outer rail 24. The inclined surface 46c of the second protrusion 46 is formed so that a perpendicular perpendicular to the inclined surface 46c is inclined to the side away from the launch port 21b. That is, the pachinko ball that is launched from the launch port 21b into the game area 23 and contacts the inclined surface 46c of the second protrusion 46 is reduced by the inclination of the inclined surface 46c, and the pachinko ball contacts the bowl-shaped portion 36. In addition to alleviating the impact at the time, the pachinko ball can be received in the direction away from the launch port 21b (the lower first protrusion 45 side). In addition, the inclined surface 46c of the second protrusion 46 is configured to roll the pachinko ball on the inclined surface 46c in a direction away from the outer rail 24 by the inclination, and in the game area 23, the game area is formed. It functions as a movement restricting means for restricting the movement of the pachinko ball from the frame side game area S defined on the front side of the portion 43 to the outer rail 24 side. That is, by passing the pachinko ball that contacts the inclined surface 46c of the second protrusion 46 in a direction away from the launch port 21b, contact with the next pachinko ball launched along the outer rail 24 is avoided. This prevents the flight of the next pachinko sphere. The inclined lower end portion of the inclined surface 46 c of the second projecting portion 46 is configured to be continuous with the upper end portion of the facing surface 46 a of the second projecting portion 46.
更に、第2突出部46には、前記受け面46bの傾斜下端と対向面46aの傾斜下端部の夫々に連設する側面46dを有している。第2突出部46の側面46dは、上端から下端に向けて右側に傾斜しており、打出し口21bから放出されたパチンコ球を受けて庇側流路71側に落下させるようになっている。すなわち、第2突出部46の側面46dに接触するパチンコ球を庇側流路71側に落下させるように弾くことで、外レール24に沿って打ち出される次のパチンコ球との接触を回避して、当該次のパチンコ球の飛翔を阻害するのを防ぐようになっている。   Further, the second projecting portion 46 has side surfaces 46d that are connected to the inclined lower end of the receiving surface 46b and the inclined lower end of the facing surface 46a. The side surface 46d of the second protrusion 46 is inclined rightward from the upper end toward the lower end, and receives the pachinko ball released from the launch port 21b and drops it to the heel side flow path 71 side. . That is, the pachinko ball that contacts the side surface 46d of the second protrusion 46 is flipped so as to drop toward the heel side flow path 71, thereby avoiding contact with the next pachinko ball that is launched along the outer rail 24. This prevents the flight of the next pachinko sphere.
図5および図8に示すように、前記第2突出部46には、傾斜面46cにおける前記打出し口21bに近接する傾斜上端部から上方へ突出する球止め部46eが設けられている。この球止め部46eは、傾斜面46cの面方向に突出し、先端に向かうにつれて当該傾斜面46c側に窄まる突起状に設けられている。また、球止め部46eは、第2突出部46(傾斜面46c)において外レール24に最も近接する部位に設けられ、遊技領域形成部43の外縁近くに位置している。すなわち、球止め部46eは、第1突出部44,45よりも打出し口21bに近接する第2突出部46に設けられると共に、前記遊技領域23において遊技領域形成部43の前側に画成された前記枠側遊技領域Sから外レール24側(打出し口21b側)へのパチンコ球の移動を制限する移動制限手段として機能している。   As shown in FIGS. 5 and 8, the second projecting portion 46 is provided with a ball stopper 46e projecting upward from an inclined upper end portion of the inclined surface 46c adjacent to the launching port 21b. The ball stopper 46e protrudes in the surface direction of the inclined surface 46c and is provided in a protruding shape that narrows toward the inclined surface 46c toward the tip. Further, the ball stopper 46e is provided at a portion of the second protrusion 46 (inclined surface 46c) closest to the outer rail 24, and is located near the outer edge of the game area forming portion 43. That is, the ball stopper 46e is provided on the second protrusion 46 closer to the launch port 21b than the first protrusions 44 and 45, and is defined in front of the game area forming part 43 in the game area 23. Further, it functions as a movement restricting means for restricting the movement of the pachinko ball from the frame side game area S to the outer rail 24 side (launching port 21b side).

(実施例の作用)
次に、前述のように構成された実施例に係るパチンコ機10の作用につき説明する。
(Operation of Example)
Next, the operation of the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment configured as described above will be described.
前記前枠13の前面側に設けられた前記操作ハンドル16の操作レバー16aを遊技者が回転操作すると、前記打球発射装置から発射されたパチンコ球が前記遊技盤20に設けた案内レール21により画成された発射通路21aを通って打出し口21bから遊技領域23内に打ち出される。このとき、前記操作レバー16aの回動量に応じてパチンコ球の打ち出し位置が変化し、打ち出し位置に応じて遊技領域23の第1球流下経路23aまたは第2球流下経路23bをパチンコ球が流下する。前記枠状装飾体34に設けた段部36bにめがけてパチンコ球を打ち出す「左打ち」が行われた場合は、打出し口21bから打ち出されて段部36bに当接したパチンコ球は、前記枠状装飾体34に設けられた前記遊技領域形成部43の前側に画成された枠側遊技領域S(庇側流路71,突出部間流路72)を流下する。このとき、遊技領域形成部43に設けられた複数の突出部44,45,46にパチンコ球が接触することで、該パチンコ球の流下方向が変更される。   When a player rotates the operation lever 16a of the operation handle 16 provided on the front side of the front frame 13, a pachinko ball emitted from the hitting ball launcher is displayed by a guide rail 21 provided on the game board 20. It is launched into the game area 23 from the launch opening 21b through the formed launch passage 21a. At this time, the launch position of the pachinko ball changes according to the rotation amount of the operation lever 16a, and the pachinko ball flows down the first ball flow path 23a or the second ball flow path 23b of the game area 23 according to the launch position. . When “left-handed” is performed in which a pachinko ball is launched toward the step portion 36b provided in the frame-shaped decorative body 34, the pachinko ball that is launched from the launch port 21b and contacts the step portion 36b is The frame-side game area S (the heel-side flow path 71 and the inter-projection-part flow path 72) defined on the front side of the game area forming portion 43 provided in the frame-shaped decorative body 34 flows down. At this time, when the pachinko balls come into contact with the plurality of projecting portions 44, 45, 46 provided in the game area forming portion 43, the flow-down direction of the pachinko balls is changed.
すなわち、図3に示す如く、前記遊技盤20に形成する装着口33を大きくして大型の枠状装飾体34を採用した場合であっても、装着口33の前側に、パチンコ球が移動可能な枠側遊技領域Sを形成する遊技領域形成部43を設けたので、パチンコ球が移動可能な広い遊技領域23(枠側遊技領域S)を確保することができる。また、遊技領域形成部43にパチンコ球の移動方向を変更可能な複数の突出部44,45,46を設けているので、パチンコ球に興趣のある動きを与えることができ、パチンコ球の挙動が単調となるのを防止して遊技の興趣を向上することができる。   That is, as shown in FIG. 3, even when the mounting opening 33 formed in the game board 20 is enlarged and a large frame-shaped decorative body 34 is adopted, the pachinko ball can move to the front side of the mounting opening 33. Since the game area forming portion 43 for forming the frame-side game area S is provided, a wide game area 23 (frame-side game area S) in which the pachinko ball can move can be secured. In addition, since a plurality of projecting portions 44, 45, and 46 that can change the moving direction of the pachinko ball are provided in the game area forming portion 43, an interesting movement can be given to the pachinko ball, and the behavior of the pachinko ball is It is possible to prevent the monotony and improve the interest of the game.
前記左転動面70に沿って流下するパチンコ球は、他のパチンコ球との衝突等によって突出部間流路72側に跳ね上がり、外レール24側へ向けて上昇移動することがある。ここで、前記枠側遊技領域Sから前記飛翔経路(外レール24側)へ向けたパチンコ球の移動を制限する移動制限手段(傾斜面44c,45c,46cおよび球止め部46e)が前記第1,第2突出部44,45,46に設けられていることで、外レール24および第1,第2突出部44,45,46の間におけるパチンコ球の飛翔が妨げられるのを防止し得る。従って、前記打出し口21bから遊技領域23に打ち出されたパチンコ球と、新たに打ち出されたパチンコ球との衝突を防いで、意図する位置へのパチンコ球の打ち出しを可能にすることができるから、パチンコ球の挙動に一喜一憂するというパチンコ遊技特有の興趣を損うことがない。また、打出し口21bに近接する側から離間する側に向かって下方傾斜する傾斜面46cと、該傾斜面46cにおける打出し口21bに近接する傾斜上端部から上方へ突出する球止め部46eとを第2突出部46の外周面に設けることで、枠側遊技領域Sから打出し口21b側へ向かうパチンコ球の勢いを第3突出部46の傾斜面46cによって削ぐことができ、打出し口21bからのパチンコ球の放出が妨げられるのを抑制できる。また、傾斜面46cを傾斜上端側へ向けて移動するパチンコ球を球止め部46eによって該傾斜面46cの下流側に戻すことができるから、傾斜面46cを上り移動するパチンコ球が打出し口21bから放出されるパチンコ球の進行の妨げになることはない。更に、移動制限手段(傾斜面46c、球止め部46e)を、複数の突出部44,45,46の内で最も打出し口21bに近接する第2突出部46に設けることにより、発射球が集中する打出し口21b近傍においてパチンコ球の逆戻りを効果的に防ぎ、打出し口21bからのパチンコ球の放出が妨げられるのを抑制できる。   Pachinko balls that flow down along the left rolling surface 70 may jump up to the flow path 72 between the protrusions due to collisions with other pachinko balls, and move upward toward the outer rail 24 side. Here, the movement restricting means (inclined surfaces 44c, 45c, 46c and the ball stopper 46e) for restricting the movement of the pachinko ball from the frame side game area S toward the flight path (outer rail 24 side) is the first. Therefore, the pachinko ball flying between the outer rail 24 and the first and second projecting portions 44, 45, 46 can be prevented from being hindered. Accordingly, it is possible to prevent the pachinko ball launched from the launch port 21b from hitting the game area 23 and the newly launched pachinko ball from colliding with each other, thereby enabling the launch of the pachinko ball to the intended position. The pachinko game's unique excitement of being amazed at the behavior of the pachinko ball will not be spoiled. In addition, an inclined surface 46c that inclines downward toward the side away from the side close to the launch port 21b, and a ball stopper 46e that protrudes upward from an inclined upper end portion of the inclined surface 46c adjacent to the launch port 21b. Is provided on the outer peripheral surface of the second projecting portion 46, the momentum of the pachinko ball going from the frame side game area S toward the launching port 21b can be scraped by the inclined surface 46c of the third projecting portion 46. It can suppress that the discharge | release of the pachinko sphere from 21b is prevented. Further, the pachinko ball moving toward the upper end side of the inclined surface 46c can be returned to the downstream side of the inclined surface 46c by the ball stopper 46e, so that the pachinko ball moving upward on the inclined surface 46c is launched 21b. Does not interfere with the progression of pachinko spheres released from the body. Further, by providing the movement restricting means (inclined surface 46c, ball stopper 46e) on the second protrusion 46 closest to the launching port 21b among the plurality of protrusions 44, 45, 46, the launch ball can be formed. It is possible to effectively prevent the pachinko balls from returning backward in the vicinity of the concentrated launch opening 21b, and to prevent the pachinko balls from being released from the launch opening 21b.
前記枠状装飾体34に設けられた遊技領域形成部43は光透過性に構成されており、裏側に配設された前記発光演出装置59における外発光体61aの光によって該遊技領域形成部43を裏側から照明することで、枠側遊技領域Sを流下するパチンコ球の動きと発光演出とによって遊技の興趣を向上し得る。特に、「左打ち」を行う場合に、遊技者が注目する打出し口21bと段部36bとの間の遊技領域23を構成する枠側遊技領域Sを裏側から照明することで、演出効果を高めることができる。   The game area forming portion 43 provided in the frame-shaped decorative body 34 is configured to be light transmissive, and the game area forming portion 43 is formed by light from the outer light emitting body 61a in the light emitting effect device 59 provided on the back side. By illuminating from the back side, the entertainment of the game can be improved by the movement of the pachinko ball flowing down the frame side game area S and the light emission effect. In particular, when “left-handed” is performed, a lighting effect is obtained by illuminating the frame-side game area S that forms the game area 23 between the launch opening 21b and the stepped portion 36b, which the player pays attention to, from the back side. Can be increased.
実施例のパチンコ機10で、前記枠状装飾体34に配設される電飾役物47における装飾板52を、図2,図7,図8に示す如く、該枠状装飾体34の内側と外側とに亘って延在するよう構成したので、枠状装飾体34の寸法や設置領域が限定される状況であっても大型の電飾役物47(装飾板52)を採用することができ、インパクトを高めて興趣を向上し得る。また、他機種との差別化を図ることができる。しかも、枠状装飾体34の外側に延出する外装飾部52bの後側に画成された庇側流路(通路)71をパチンコ球が通過可能(移動可能)であるので、電飾役物47(装飾板52)を大型化してもパチンコ球に興趣のある動きを与えることができる広さの遊技領域23を確保し得る。また、外装飾部52bは、前記遊技領域形成部43に設けた第1突出部44,45に位置決め固定されているので、遊技領域形成部43と外装飾部52bとの前後方向の位置を一定に保つことができ、外装飾部52bが後側に変位して前記庇側流路71での球詰り等が発生するのを防ぐことができる。更に、庇側流路71を画成する第1突出部44,45や第2突出部46は、前記庇状部36から外側に延在する遊技領域形成部43に設けられているので、庇状部36と突出部44,45,46との離間隔隔を一定に保つことができ、これによっても庇側流路71での球詰り等が発生するのを防ぐことができる。   In the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, as shown in FIGS. 2, 7 and 8, the decorative plate 52 in the electric ornament 47 disposed on the frame-shaped decorative body 34 is arranged inside the frame-shaped decorative body 34. Since it is configured to extend over the outside and the outside, it is possible to employ a large electric accessory 47 (decorative plate 52) even in a situation where the dimensions and installation area of the frame-shaped decorative body 34 are limited. Yes, it can increase the impact and improve the interest. In addition, it can be differentiated from other models. In addition, the pachinko balls can pass (movable) through the ridge-side flow path (passage) 71 defined on the rear side of the outer decorative portion 52b extending to the outside of the frame-shaped decorative body 34. Even if the size of the object 47 (decorative board 52) is increased, it is possible to secure a gaming area 23 having a size that can give an interesting movement to the pachinko ball. Further, since the outer decoration portion 52b is positioned and fixed to the first projecting portions 44 and 45 provided in the game area forming portion 43, the position of the game area forming portion 43 and the outer decoration portion 52b in the front-rear direction is constant. It is possible to prevent the outer decoration portion 52b from being displaced rearward and causing clogging of the balls in the heel side flow passage 71. Further, since the first projecting portions 44 and 45 and the second projecting portion 46 that define the heel-side flow channel 71 are provided in the game area forming portion 43 that extends outward from the heel-shaped portion 36, It is possible to keep the separation distance between the shape portion 36 and the projecting portions 44, 45, 46 constant, and it is also possible to prevent the occurrence of clogging or the like in the heel side flow path 71.
前記枠状装飾体34の外側に延出する外装飾部52bは、前記発光演出装置59の外発光体61aを発光した場合に、前記遊技領域形成部43を透過した光によって明輝し得るよう構成してあるので、演出効果を向上し得る。ここで、外装飾部52bを遊技領域23に延出する場合、該外装飾部52bの後側にパチンコ球が移動可能な庇側流路71を画成する関係から該外装飾部52bに発光基板を直に配設することはできず、外装飾部52bの装飾性が低下するおそれがある。しかるかに、実施例のパチンコ機10では、遊技領域23の一部を画成する遊技領域形成部43の後方に位置する外発光体61aからの光によって外装飾部52bを明輝し得るよう構成したので、外装飾部52bの後側に庇側流路71を画成しても該外装飾部52bの装飾性を向上し得る。   The outer decorative portion 52b extending outside the frame-shaped decorative body 34 is configured to be brightened by the light transmitted through the game area forming portion 43 when the outer light emitting body 61a of the light emitting effect device 59 emits light. Therefore, the production effect can be improved. Here, when the outer decorative portion 52b is extended to the game area 23, the outer decorative portion 52b emits light because of the relationship that defines the heel-side flow channel 71 to which the pachinko balls can move on the rear side of the outer decorative portion 52b. A board | substrate cannot be arrange | positioned directly but there exists a possibility that the decorativeness of the outer decoration part 52b may fall. However, the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment is configured so that the outer decoration portion 52b can be brightened by the light from the outer light emitter 61a located behind the game region forming portion 43 that defines a part of the game region 23. Therefore, even if the heel side channel 71 is defined on the rear side of the outer decorative portion 52b, the decorativeness of the outer decorative portion 52b can be improved.
前記電飾役物47に設けた内発光体50aを発光することで、前記枠状装飾体34の内側に位置する前記内装飾部52aが明輝されて、前記表示装置17における表示部17aの上側での発光演出によって興趣を向上し得る。また、図4,図5に示す如く、電飾役物47の外周と前記庇状部36の内周との間に、前記取着部54が前側に露出する露出領域55が画成されており、前記発光演出装置59の取着部用発光体61aを発光した場合は、該取着部54の裏側において照明された装飾品62が前側から見えるようになり、最も前側に位置する内装飾部52aによる発光演出と、遊技盤20の裏側に位置する装飾品62による発光演出とによって興趣を向上することができる。   By emitting light from the inner light emitter 50a provided on the electrical accessory 47, the inner decoration portion 52a located inside the frame-shaped decorative body 34 is brightened, and the upper side of the display portion 17a in the display device 17 is brightened. The entertainment can be improved by directing the light. Also, as shown in FIGS. 4 and 5, an exposed area 55 is defined between the outer periphery of the electrical accessory 47 and the inner periphery of the bowl-shaped portion 36 so that the attachment portion 54 is exposed to the front side. When the light emitting element 61a for the attachment portion of the light emitting effect device 59 emits light, the ornament 62 illuminated on the back side of the attachment portion 54 can be seen from the front side, and the inner decoration located at the frontmost side.

前記電飾役物47の内装飾部52aを内発光体50aによって裏側から照明すると共に、前記外装飾部52bを外発光体61aによって裏側から照明するので、枠状装飾体34の内側および外側に亘って延在する大型の装飾板52が明輝することで、よりインパクトのある演出ができて遊技の興趣を向上し得る。また、内装飾部52aを照明する光を拡散する前記光拡散部材51に施される光拡散処理の形態と、外装飾部52bを照明する光を拡散する遊技領域形成部43の光拡散部43aに施される光拡散処理の形態とを同じに設定したので、内装飾部52aおよび外装飾部52bを異なる発光体50a,61aで裏側から照明しても、両装飾部52a,52bの明輝形態が同じとなり、枠状装飾体34の内側と外側とに亘って延在している装飾板52が一連の部材であることを認識させることができる。更に、前記外装飾部52bを支持する前記第1突出部44,45の光拡散部64に施される光拡散処理の形態は、遊技領域形成部43の光拡散部43aに施される光拡散処理の形態と同じに設定されているので、当該第1突出部44,45における外装飾部52bの外周縁から露出する部分における明輝形態が外装飾部52bの明輝形態と同じとなって一体感が得られる。言い替えると、パチンコ球の流下方向を変更するように機能する第1突出部44,45における外装飾部52bの外周縁からの露出部分を、該外装飾部52bの一部であるかのように見せ掛けることができ、より大型の装飾板52が配設されていると錯覚させることで演出のインパクトを向上し得る。   The inner decoration portion 52a of the electrical accessory 47 is illuminated from the back side by the inner light emitter 50a, and the outer decoration portion 52b is illuminated from the back side by the outer light emitter 61a. Since the large decorative plate 52 extending over the area is bright, it is possible to produce a more impactful production and improve the interest of the game. In addition, a light diffusion process applied to the light diffusing member 51 for diffusing light for illuminating the inner decoration portion 52a, and a light diffusion portion 43a of the game area forming portion 43 for diffusing light for illuminating the outer decoration portion 52b. Since the form of the light diffusion process applied to the same is set to be the same, even if the inner decoration part 52a and the outer decoration part 52b are illuminated from the back side with different light emitters 50a, 61a, the bright form of both decoration parts 52a, 52b It can be recognized that the decorative plate 52 extending over the inner side and the outer side of the frame-shaped decorative body 34 is a series of members. Furthermore, the form of the light diffusion process applied to the light diffusion part 64 of the first projecting parts 44 and 45 that support the outer decoration part 52b is the light diffusion applied to the light diffusion part 43a of the game area forming part 43. Since it is set to be the same as the form of processing, the bright form in the portion exposed from the outer peripheral edge of the outer decorative part 52b in the first projecting parts 44, 45 is the same as the bright form of the outer decorative part 52b, and a sense of unity Is obtained. In other words, the exposed portion from the outer peripheral edge of the outer decorative portion 52b in the first projecting portions 44 and 45 functioning to change the flow direction of the pachinko sphere is as if part of the outer decorative portion 52b. It is possible to make it appear, and the illusion that a larger decorative plate 52 is disposed can improve the impact of the production.
