The coin selector 23 determines the authenticity of the coin based on the size, shape, weight, etc. of the coin. If the coin is an authentic coin, the game in the slot machine 1 is performed, while the authentic coin is In some cases, the coin is forcibly discharged out of the machine.

  Below the coin selector 23, a coin guide 24 for guiding a coin determined to be authentic to the hopper 18 and a cancel chute 25 for guiding a coin determined to be authentic to the coin tray 14 are provided. Yes.

  The coin guide 24 is configured to roll the coin in a slightly inclined state in the vertical direction. As shown in FIGS. 11 to 13, the groove 26 is fed from the coin selector 23. In order to supply the coins 29 to be supplied to the hopper 18, a guide base 28 having a trapezoidal shape in plan view having a corner portion 28 f for changing the direction of the sent coins 29 is disposed outside the guide base 28. It is formed between the guide wall surface 27.

The groove 26 is U-shaped at the bottom and has a substantially V-shaped cross section that expands upward. That is, the guide wall surface 27 is disposed so that the upper part thereof is tilted outward as a whole so as to be separated from the inclined surface of the side wall 28g of the guide table 28 from the lower side to the upper side.

In the conventional coin guide 24, the coin 29 sent out from the coin selector 23 is sent into the groove 26 in a standing state, and the direction is changed by 90 ° at the corner portion 28 f of the guide base 28 to the hopper 18. It is what you send in.
At that time, as shown in FIG. 13 and FIG. 15, the outer guide wall surface 27 that forms the groove 26 is protruded greatly outward, and the groove 26 has a substantially V-shaped cross section. As shown in FIG. 14, the groove 26 is passed along the outer guide wall surface 27 by centrifugal force.

  Therefore, as shown in FIGS. 15 and 16, the medal 29 contacts the bottom portion α of the groove 26 and the outer guide wall surface 27 at the left and right points β and γ, respectively, for a total of 3 You will receive frictional resistance at several places.

  Therefore, the medal 29 is subjected to a large resistance at the bank portion of the coin guide 24, that is, the bottom portion α of the groove 26 and the guide wall surface 27. Therefore, the loss of the passing speed of the coin 29 is large, and this is compensated for. The coin guide 24 requires a certain mounting angle with respect to the housing 3.

  Without this mounting angle, the speed loss is too great, and there is a possibility of colliding with the next medal, and a fixed mounting angle is required, so there is no degree of freedom in design within the housing 3. Since the guide wall surface 27 protrudes greatly outside, there is a problem to be solved such as occupying a place for installation by the amount of the protrusion.

In view of the present situation, the present invention reduces the frictional resistance by reducing the contact points of the medals in the coin guide, increases the passing speed of the coin, and reduces the mounting angle as compared with the conventional one, so that the coin guide is compact. A gaming machine that can be used is provided.

In order to achieve the above object, the invention according to claim 1 of the present invention provides:
A coin insertion slot for inserting coins, a coin selector for determining the authenticity of the inserted coins, a hopper for storing coins and paying out coins as a prize, and paying out by this hopper In a gaming machine comprising a coin tray for receiving the coins that have been made, and a coin guide for guiding the coins that have been determined to be authentic by the coin selector to the hopper,
The coin guide is
A rectangular parallelepiped guide base with one corner at the top, an arcuate corner, a U-shaped groove formed continuously along the bottom of the guide base on the corner side, and a corner of the guide base The guide wall is formed to be connected to the outside of the groove so as to face the side wall on the side, and the guide wall is higher than the guide table ,

While coins fed in upright position from the coin selector, along the groove path which is inclined outwardly, receiving in a state of being inclined to the guide wall surface, after diverting the guide base of the corner portion, to feed the hopper while retaining a state of being inclined along the inclined wall surface of the guide table, a game machine, characterized by being configured to Mizoro so as to roll.

The invention according to claim 2 of the present invention is
In the gaming machine according to claim 1,
The guide wall surface is
The upper portion of the portion facing the corner portion of the guide table is projected toward the guide table by twisting .

In the gaming machine of the present invention, in the coin guide disposed between the coin selector and the hopper, when forming a groove path for allowing the coin to pass in an upright state between the guide wall surface and the side wall of the guide base, The coins sent out in a standing state from the coin selector are received in a direction away from the guide table, that is, in an inclined state along a groove that is inclined outward, and then the direction is changed at the corner portion of the guide table and sent to the hopper. during is configured so as to roll while retaining the tilt oblique state along the inclined wall surface formed in the guide block.

Therefore, it is possible to reduce the frictional resistance generated between the coin and the guide side wall that occurs when the coin passes through the groove.
As a result, it was possible to mount at an angle smaller than the conventional mounting angle.

In addition, since the upper part of the guide wall facing the side wall of the corner of the guide base protrudes inward by twisting , the bulge to the outside of the guide side wall is suppressed, so the entire coin guide is made compact. It is possible to do that.

In particular, in the present invention, coins received in a standing state or inclined outward at the start end on the coin selector side are always inclined along the inclined wall surface of the guide base from the vicinity of the corner toward the end, that is, inward. Since the groove is formed so as to roll in a state, the frictional resistance generated when the coin passes through the groove can be greatly reduced.

At that time, the side wall at the corner portion is inclined to the opposite side (inner side) from the vertical side wall before entering the corner portion of the guide base, and the entire U-shaped groove is inclined inward. By doing so, it is possible to further reduce the frictional resistance if the rolling coin does not contact the outer guide side wall constituting the groove, but only the bottom surface of the groove and a part of the side wall. Become.

Further, the groove after the corner is formed in a straight line so as to be parallel to the straight side wall of the guide table facing the side wall formed of the inclined surface, thereby shortening the groove and rolling to the hopper. Time can be shortened and coins can be discharged smoothly.
