[0033]
(About the second movable member)
Next, a configuration for swinging the second movable member 60 will be described. As shown in FIG. 1 or FIG. 6, the second movable member 60 is connected to the gear portion 34 of the slide member 31 via a connecting support shaft (pivot support point) 61 extending in the front-rear direction. It is connected and fixed to the shaft hole 62b of the gear 62 (see FIG. 3), and when the slide member 31 reciprocates, the gear portion 34 and the toothless gear 62 mesh with each other, and the toothless gear 62 swings. The second movable member 60 is also swung. Here, since the extending direction of the connecting support shaft 61 and the extending direction of the arm member 51 on the second pivot shaft 54 intersect each other, the toothless gear 62 is connected to the slide member 31. When reciprocating, the arm member 51 swings in a different direction.
[0034]
That is, when the cam member 29 rotates and moves the slide member 31 upward, the second movable member 60 is swung upward (clockwise in FIG. 6) about the connection support shaft 61, When the slide member 31 is positioned at the first position, the second movable member 60 is inclined upward to the left with respect to the connecting support shaft 61 and is in a first state in which the “mouth” is closed (FIG. 6A). )reference). On the other hand, when the slide member 31 is moved downward, the second movable member 60 is swung downward (counterclockwise in FIG. 6) about the connection support shaft 61, and the slide member 31 is moved to the first position. When the second movable member 60 is located at the second position, the second movable member 60 is set to be in the second state in which the “mouth” is opened by inclining leftward (see FIG. 6B).
[0035]
[Effect of the embodiment]
  Next, according to this embodimentGaming machineAuxiliary production equipmentSetThe operation will be described.
[0036]
In the auxiliary effect device 20 disposed on the decorative member 15, the slide member 31 is always held at the first position, and the first movable member 41 simulating the eyes and the second movable simulating the lower jaw. The member 60 holds the “eye” and “mouth” in the first closed state (see FIG. 6A). In this state, when the motor 28 of the auxiliary effect device 20 is driven to rotate the cam member 29 attached to the motor 28, the slide member 31 moves from the first position to the second position (FIG. 5). (See (a) → (c)).
[0037]
At this time, since the first flange portion 32a of the slide member 31 pulls the first support shaft 53a of the arm member 51 downward, the arm member 51 moves downward about the second pivot shaft 54 (clockwise in FIG. 7). The second support shaft 53b of the arm member 51 pulls the second flange portion 57 of the action plate 56 rearward, and the action plate 56 moves rearward. For this reason, the pressing of the projection plate 43c on the connecting member 43 of the first movable member 41 by the action plate 56 is released, and the first movable member 41 is locked to the locking collar portion 44a. It is pulled by the elastic force of the first pivot 46 and swings upward about the first pivot axis 46 to enter the second state in which the “eye” is opened. Further, when the slide member 31 moves from the first position to the second position, the toothless gear 62 that meshes with the gear portion 34 formed on the slide member 31 is swung and connected to the toothless gear 62. In addition, the second movable member 60 is swung counterclockwise about the connection support shaft 61, so that the "mouth" is opened (see FIG. 6B).
[0038]
When the motor 28 is further driven to rotate the cam member 29, the slide member 31 moves from the second position to the first position (see FIG. 5 (c) → (a)). At this time, since the first flange portion 32a of the slide member 31 presses the first support shaft 53a of the arm member 51 upward, the arm member 51 moves upward about the second pivot 54 (counterclockwise in FIG. 7). The second flange 57 of the working plate 56 is pushed forward by the second support shaft 53b of the arm member 51 and moves forward. For this reason, the protrusion 43c of the connecting member 43 of the first movable member 41 is pressed forward by the protruding piece 58 of the action plate 56, and the first movable member 41 is subjected to the elastic force of the spring member 36. As a result, the first pivot 46 is pivoted downward about the first pivot 46 to enter the first state in which the “eye” is closed. At this time, the toothless gear 62 connected to the second movable member 60 is swung by the gear portion 34 formed on the slide member 31, so that the second movable member 60 is also centered on the connection support shaft 61. It swings upward and returns to the first state in which the “mouth” is closed (see FIG. 6A).
[0039]
In this way, by swinging the first and second movable members 41, 60, it is possible to improve the visual effect and increase the interest of the game. At this time, since the first and second movable members 41, 60 can be driven simultaneously by driving a single motor 28, the number of parts required for assembling the auxiliary effect device 20 can be reduced. Thus, the apparatus itself can be reduced in size, and an increase in cost due to the arrangement of a plurality of motors 28 can be prevented. Further, since the first and second movable members 41 and 60 can be operated only by controlling the single motor 28, it is possible to easily control the operation of each movable member 41 and 60. Further, since the first pivot 46 of the first movable member 41 and the connecting support shaft 61 of the second movable member 60 are extended in different directions (left-right direction and front-rear direction), the first and second movable Since the members 41 and 60 are swung in different directions, the visual presentation effect can be further improved and the interest of the game can be increased.
[0040]
Further, since the shaft portion 29b of the cam member 29 and the guide piece 32b of the slide member 31 are inserted into the prepared hole portion 25 and the guide hole 23 of the main body portion 21 (base portion 22), the slide member 31 is securely attached. Can be reciprocated on a straight line connecting the lower hole portion 25 and the guide hole 23. Further, since the base portion 62a of the toothless gear 62 is inserted into the upper hole portion 24 of the main body portion 21 (base portion 22), the toothless gear 62 is swung by the gear portion 34 of the slide member 31. At this time, the toothless gear 62 can be swung at a fixed position. Furthermore, since the slide member 31 and the main body portion 21 (the base portion 22 and the support plate portion 26) are brought into contact with each other through the protrusions 31a formed on the slide member 31, both members 21, 31 are provided. The contact area becomes smaller, and the slide member 31 can be smoothly reciprocated. Since the elastic force of the spring member 36 is used as the means for swinging the first movable member 41 of the auxiliary effect device 20, the first structure can be used without using a complicated structure such as a link mechanism or a crank mechanism. The movable member 41 can be swung, and the configuration of the apparatus 20 can be simplified by reducing the number of parts. Further, since the rear end of the spring member 36 is locked to the boss portion 48d formed on the right half 48 of the case body 47, there is no need to newly provide a member for locking the spring member 36.
[0041]
[Example of change]
In addition, as a structure of an auxiliary | assistant effect apparatus, it is not restricted to the thing of an Example, A various change is possible. For example, although the slide member is reciprocated via the cam member, various conversion means for converting the rotational motion of the crank mechanism or the like into linear motion can be employed. The driving means is not limited to a motor, and various rotary actuators such as a rotary solenoid, and linear actuators such as a linearly driven solenoid and cylinder can be used.
[0042]
Then, the first and second movable members are respectively swung, but by combining the connecting portion of the slide member and the transmission means of the first and second movable members as required, A linear motion or the like can be performed, and the operation direction can be changed as required. Further, the number of movable members provided in the auxiliary effect device is not limited to two, and three or more movable members may be provided to cause each movable member to perform a required operation. In the embodiment, a liquid crystal-type symbol display device is arranged on the decorative member to perform the main game effect. However, any display may be used as long as the symbol is variably displayed such as a drum type or a belt type. Further, the gaming machine in which the auxiliary effecting device is arranged is not limited to a pachinko machine, and may be an arrange ball machine or the like, as long as it has a decorative member facing the symbol display device that performs the main gaming effect.
