[0001]
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a slot machine capable of stopping a symbol variation display by a symbol display unit composed of, for example, a rotating reel only in a predetermined order.
[0002]
[Prior art]
Conventionally, as this type of slot machine, there are a plurality of symbol display portions for variably displaying a plurality of types of symbols, a start switch for starting the variation display of the symbols by the respective symbol display portions, and the respective symbol display portions. And a plurality of stop switches that individually stop the variable display of symbols by each symbol display unit.
[0003]
In addition, this slot machine pre-determines a combination of stop symbols that can be stopped and displayed on each symbol display section, and the combination of stop symbols is displayed at a time when there is no sense of incompatibility when the player operates the stop switch. When a stop display can be performed on the part, a predetermined stop symbol is stopped and displayed. In contrast, for example, after a lapse of 1 second from the operation of the stop switch, when the symbol display by the symbol display unit is stopped, the predetermined stop symbol can be stopped and displayed for the first time. In order to give the player a sense of discomfort or distrust, the symbol display unit is configured to stop another symbol before the predetermined symbol can be stopped and displayed instead of the predetermined symbol. It controlled the display of the fluctuation of the symbol.
[0004]
In addition, the player of this slot machine can arbitrarily select which stop switch is operated to stop the change display of the symbol by the corresponding symbol display unit.
Therefore, for example, in a slot machine in which three symbol display units are provided and three stop switches corresponding to the three symbol display units are provided, the operation order of each stop switch is six. However, the general player stops the symbol variation display on the left symbol display unit, and then stops the symbol variation display on the center symbol display unit and finally the right symbol display unit. The stop switch was operated in order.
[0005]
For this reason, the variation control of the symbol display unit for stopping the variation display of the symbol based on the operation of the stop switch is performed by the symbol display unit according to the operation sequence of the stop switch performed by the general player described above. In order to make the player most profitable, that is, to make it easier to win a prize, consideration is given to the arrangement order of symbols in each symbol display section or the order of variable display. It was common.
[0006]
[Problems to be solved by the invention]
However, in the conventional slot machine described above, when operating the stop switches in the order described above, consideration must be given to the order of symbol arrangement in each symbol display section or the order of variable display so as to facilitate winning. However, if the stop switch is operated without following the above example, the above consideration may not be fully reflected, and not only the gaming ability originally intended for the gaming machine cannot be demonstrated, There has been a problem that unfairness occurs in the winning probability and the like with the player following the operation sequence of the described stop switch.
[0007]
For this reason, it is considered to display the order of operation of the stop switch at the description place of the description of the gaming method provided on the front surface of the slot machine, but it is said that an appropriate game cannot be performed unless the explanation of the gaming method is purposely read. This is inconvenient for the player.
In general, there are many players who play games without paying attention to the explanation of the game method, and unfairness among players still remains.
[0008]
Accordingly, the slot machine according to claim 1 has been made in view of the above-described problems of the prior art, and the purpose of the slot machine is to stop only in a predetermined stop switch operation order. By noting that the switch cannot be operated and displaying whether or not each stop switch is operable, it is always possible to play in a situation where any player is most profitable and stop. It is an object of the present invention to provide a slot machine capable of playing a game without being confused even if the switch operation order is predetermined.
[0009]
Further, the slot machine according to claim 1 selects each stop switch by selecting an order in which each stop switch is activated based on a combination of stop symbols that can be stopped and displayed in advance determined by the stop symbol determining means.
