When the player operates the ball handle, the game ball is launched, guided by the guide rail 2 and released above the gaming machine board surface 10. While the game balls come into contact with the windmill 19 or the nail and the direction of dropping changes, a part of the game balls enter the winning port 16 or the starting winning port 12, and the gaming balls that have not entered the winning port 16 or the starting winning port 12 Enter the outlet 18. When a game ball wins the winning opening 16, for example, five prize balls are paid out to the player from the prize ball payout exit.

  When the game ball passes through the gate 17, a lottery is performed in response to a passing signal from a sensor (not shown), and the lamp of the normal symbol display unit 3 starts to change. Then, for example, when 30 seconds have elapsed since the start of the fluctuation, the lamp is stopped in the form of a lottery result. At this time, if the stop mode of the lamp is a predetermined hit mode, the expansion device 13 of the start winning opening 12 operates for 0.5 seconds, for example. As a result, the opening width of the start winning opening 12 is increased, so that it becomes easy to win the starting winning opening 12. Further, when the normal symbol to be stopped is 5 or 6, the enlargement device 13 of the start winning opening 12 does not operate, but even in this case, it is possible to win the starting winning opening 12. When the game ball passes through the gate 17 while the normal symbol is changing in the symbol display device 11, the change is reserved and executed sequentially.

  Further, when a game ball wins the start winning opening 12, for example, five award balls are paid out to the player from the prize ball payout opening in response to a detection signal from a start winning detector 12a (see FIG. 3) described later. The winning game ball passes through the introduction pipes 122a, 122b, 122c, 122d corresponding to one of the symbol variation effects, for example, lose, reach, super reach, or jackpot determined from the distribution pipe 111 at the time of winning, and the holding pipe 121a. , 121b, 121c, 121d.

Starts to fluctuate, and the fluctuation stops at the special symbol corresponding to the holding tubes 121a, 121b, 121c, and 121d in which the discharged holding balls are held.

  At this time, when the special symbol that is stopped and displayed is a jackpot symbol, a jackpot game is generated and the normally closed big prize opening 15 is opened. Then, when the game ball wins the big prize opening 15, for example, 15 prize balls are paid out to the player from the prize ball payout exit. The large winning opening 15 is temporarily closed, for example, when 30 seconds have elapsed since opening or when there is a ten-ball winning. Then, if there is a prize in the V zone provided inside the special prize opening 15 while the special prize opening 15 is open, the special prize opening 15 is once closed and then opened again. It has become. Such repeated opening and closing of the big prize opening 15, that is, rounds are, for example, continued up to 15 times. On the other hand, if the big prize opening 15 repeats opening and closing 15 times, or if there is no winning in the V zone while the big prize opening 15 is open, the big hit game is ended.
