Description

本発明は、球貯留部に貯留された遊技球を遊技機外部に排出させる球抜き装置に関し、なお詳細には、遊技者による不正な球抜き操作を抑制し得る弾球遊技機の球抜き装置に関する。   The present invention relates to a ball removing device for discharging game balls stored in a ball storage unit to the outside of a gaming machine, and more specifically, a ball removing device for a bullet ball gaming machine capable of suppressing an illegal ball removing operation by a player. About.

遊技盤を収容保持する前枠の後方に、賞球として払い出す遊技球を貯留する球貯留部とこの球貯留部から供給された遊技球を入賞状態に応じて払い出す球払出装置とを有する球貯留払出機構を備えた弾球遊技機の代表例としてパチンコ機がある。パチンコ機では、球貯留払出機構に形成された球通路の清掃や構成部品の保守点検等のメンテナンス作業を行うため、またいわゆる打ち止めと称される定量制を採る場合に払出球数を一定化し、あるいは営業日あたりの各パチンコ機の払出数量を計数するため、球払出貯留機構に貯留された遊技球を機体外部に排出させる球抜き機構が設けられている。球抜き機構は、球貯留部と球払出装置との間を結ぶ球通路の途上に通路壁の一部を開閉する開閉弁部材を設け、この開閉弁部材を開放位置に切り換えたときに開閉弁部材よりも上流側に位置する遊技球が球抜き通路を介して機体の外部に排出されるように構成されている。   Behind the front frame that houses and holds the game board, there is a ball storage unit that stores game balls to be paid out as prize balls, and a ball payout device that pays out game balls supplied from the ball storage units according to the winning state. There is a pachinko machine as a typical example of a ball game machine equipped with a ball storage / dispensing mechanism. In pachinko machines, in order to perform maintenance work such as cleaning of the ball passage formed in the ball storage and dispensing mechanism and maintenance and inspection of components, and when adopting a quantitative system called so-called stop, the number of balls to be dispensed is made constant, Alternatively, in order to count the paid-out quantity of each pachinko machine per business day, a ball removal mechanism is provided that discharges the game balls stored in the ball payout storage mechanism to the outside of the machine body. The ball removal mechanism is provided with an opening / closing valve member that opens and closes a part of the passage wall in the middle of the ball passage connecting the ball storage portion and the ball dispensing device, and when the opening / closing valve member is switched to the open position, A game ball located on the upstream side of the member is configured to be discharged to the outside of the machine body through a ball passage.

ここで、例えば打ち止め時の球抜き作業や、営業終了後に全台数の球抜き作業を行うようなときに、遊技島に閉鎖保持されたパチンコ機を逐一解錠および横開き開放して開閉弁部材を開放位置に切り換える操作を行わなければならないとすれば球抜き作業が繁雑である。またパチンコ機を開放した状態で球抜き作業を行うとすれば、機体から排出された遊技球を受け止める球貯留箱を別途準備する必要があるうえ、球貯留箱に排出された遊技球を遊技島の回収装置に流し込んで回収させる作業も必要になり作業の繁雑を免れない。   Here, for example, when performing ball removal work at the time of stopping and all ball removal work after the end of business, the pachinko machine closed and held on the amusement island is unlocked and opened laterally one by one to open and close the valve member If it is necessary to perform an operation of switching to the open position, the ball removing operation is complicated. If the ball removal work is performed with the pachinko machine opened, it is necessary to prepare a ball storage box for receiving the game balls discharged from the machine, and the game balls discharged to the ball storage box are The work which is poured into the collection device and collected is also necessary, and the work is complicated.

このため、球抜き機構は、パチンコ機が閉鎖施錠された状態でも機体の前面側から球抜き操作を行えるように構成されている。すなわち、パチンコ機の前面には閉鎖施錠された機体の前面側から球抜き機構を開閉操作可能な球抜き操作孔が設けられ、この球抜き操作孔にハートキーと称される細長い棒状の操作部材を挿入して押圧操作することで開閉弁部材を開閉し、球抜き作業を行えるように構成されている(例えば、特許文献1を参照)。
特開2003−164628号公報(第9〜11頁、第15〜22図)
For this reason, the ball removal mechanism is configured such that the ball removal operation can be performed from the front side of the machine body even when the pachinko machine is closed and locked. That is, a ball removal operation hole capable of opening and closing a ball removal mechanism from the front side of the closed and locked body is provided on the front surface of the pachinko machine, and an elongated rod-like operation member called a heart key is provided in the ball removal operation hole. Is configured to open and close the on-off valve member by performing a pressing operation (see, for example, Patent Document 1).
JP 2003-164628 A (pages 9 to 11 and FIGS. 15 to 22)

ところが、上記のような球抜き機構を備えたパチンコ機では、機体前面に開口する球抜き操作孔にハートキーに相当する細長い針金等を挿入して押圧すれば、それが遊技者による悪戯であっても球抜き可能になっている。このため、近年ではパチンコ遊技で賞球を獲得できなかった遊技者が、負けた腹いせに球抜き孔に針金を挿入して球抜き操作を行い、パチンコ機を球抜き状態にして遊技施設を退場するという悪戯行為が発生している。   However, in a pachinko machine equipped with a ball removal mechanism as described above, if a thin wire corresponding to a heart key is inserted and pressed into a ball removal operation hole opened in the front of the machine, this is a mischief by the player. Even the ball can be removed. For this reason, in recent years, a player who could not win a prize ball in a pachinko game inserts a wire into the ball punching hole in the losing stomach and performs a ball pulling operation, leaving the pachinko machine in a ball pulling out state and leaving the gaming facility. A mischievous act of doing is occurring.

このような悪戯行為が行われると、次にそのパチンコ機で遊技を開始した遊技者がパチンコ遊技で入賞しても、球貯留払出機構に払い出すべき遊技球が無い球切れ状態の発生、または球払出装置よりも上流側からの遊技球の流出によって賞球の払い出しが行われず、当該遊技者に不利益、不快感を与えるという問題があり、特にその入賞状態がいわゆる大当たりであったような場合には、不測の不利益を被った遊技者が遊技施設の係員や周囲の遊技者とトラブルを引き起こすことがあるという問題があった。   If such a mischief act is performed, even if the player who started the game with the pachinko machine next wins the pachinko game, there is no game ball to be paid out to the ball storage and payout mechanism, or There is a problem that the prize ball is not paid out due to the outflow of the game ball from the upstream side of the ball payout device, which causes disadvantages and discomfort to the player. In some cases, a player who has suffered unexpected disadvantages may cause troubles with a staff member of a gaming facility and surrounding players.

また、このように遊技施設が本来予定しない球抜きが行われると、ホールコンピュータで管理している各パチンコ機ごとの遊技球集計値に異常をきたすばかりでなく、パチンコ機からの球切れ信号に応じて遊技球を供給する遊技島側の遊技球自動供給装置が連続して作動状態になり、その連続動作時間によっては駆動モータの過熱等により遊技球自動供給装置や遊技島の関連装置を破損させてしまうおそれがあるという問題もあった。   In addition, if a game facility performs a ball removal that is not originally planned, it will not only cause an abnormality in the total number of game balls managed for each pachinko machine managed by the hall computer, but it will also generate a signal indicating that the ball is out of play. In response to this, the game island automatic supply device on the game island side that supplies the game balls is continuously activated, and depending on the continuous operation time, the game motor automatic supply device and related devices on the game island are damaged due to overheating of the drive motor etc. There was also a problem that there was a risk of letting it.

本発明は上記のような事情に鑑みてなされたものであり、遊技施設の係員が行う球抜き作業の作業性を悪化させることなく、遊技者の悪戯行為に対する抑止力を高めた球抜き装置を提供することを目的とし、併せて悪戯行為を早期に検知して迅速な対応が可能な球抜き装置を提供することを目的とする。   The present invention has been made in view of the circumstances as described above, and a ball removal device that increases the deterrence against a player's mischief without deteriorating the workability of the ball removal work performed by a staff member of a game facility. It is an object of the present invention to provide a ball removing device capable of detecting a mischievous action at an early stage and promptly responding to it.

上記目的達成のため、本発明は、前枠の前方に開閉可能に設けられ遊技状態において遊技盤の前面を覆って閉止保持されるガラス扉と、前枠の後方に設けられ遊技球を貯留する球貯留部およびこの球貯留部から供給された遊技球を入賞状態に応じて払い出す球払出装置を有する球貯留払出機構と、球貯留部と球払出装置との間を結ぶ球通路に通路壁の一部を開閉可能に設けられた開閉弁部材、開閉弁部材を開閉操作する操作部材をガラス扉が閉止された状態で当該ガラス扉の前面に形成された開口部から受容して挿通させる球抜き操作孔、操作部材により開閉弁部材が開放位置に切り換えられたときに当該開閉弁部材よりも上流側に位置する遊技球を排出させる球抜き通路を有してなる球抜き機構とを備えた弾球遊技機の球抜き装置に関するものである。そのうえで、本発明では、ガラス扉の前面に形成された球抜き操作孔の開口部の後方に、操作部材が球抜き操作孔を通って前枠の後方まで挿通されることを許容する挿通位置と操作部材の挿通を規制する遮蔽位置とに変位可能に設けられガラス扉を閉止した状態でガラス扉の側方から変位操作可能な遮蔽部材と、遮蔽部材を遮蔽位置に付勢する付勢手段とを有する遮蔽機構を設け、遮蔽部材を付勢手段による付勢力に抗して挿通位置に変位させた状態で、上記開口部から球抜き操作孔に操作部材を挿通して開閉弁部材を開閉操作するように球抜き装置を構成する。   In order to achieve the above object, the present invention provides a glass door that can be opened and closed in front of the front frame and covers and closes the front surface of the game board in a gaming state, and stores a game ball provided behind the front frame. A ball storage section and a ball storage / dispensing mechanism having a ball dispensing apparatus that dispenses game balls supplied from the ball storage section in accordance with a winning state, and a ball passage connecting a ball passage connecting the ball storage section and the ball dispensing apparatus Opening / closing valve member provided to be able to open and close a part of the valve, and an operating member for opening / closing the opening / closing valve member are received through an opening formed on the front surface of the glass door in a state where the glass door is closed, and inserted into the ball And a ball removal mechanism having a ball removal passage for discharging a game ball located upstream of the opening / closing valve member when the opening / closing valve member is switched to the open position by the operation member. About a ball removing device for a ball game machine Than is. In addition, in the present invention, an insertion position that allows the operation member to be inserted to the rear of the front frame through the ball removal operation hole behind the opening portion of the ball removal operation hole formed on the front surface of the glass door; A shielding member that is displaceably provided at a shielding position that restricts the insertion of the operation member and that can be displaced from the side of the glass door in a state in which the glass door is closed; and a biasing means that biases the shielding member to the shielding position; The opening / closing valve member is opened / closed by inserting the operation member from the opening into the ball removal operation hole in a state where the shielding member is displaced to the insertion position against the urging force of the urging means. The ball removing device is configured as described above.

なお、上記球抜き装置に、遮蔽部材が挿通位置に配設されたことを検出する挿通位置検出手段(例えば、実施形態における位置検出センサ271)と、挿通位置検出手段により遮蔽部材が挿通位置に配設されたことが検出されたときに警報作動を行う警報手段とを設けることが好ましい。ここで、本明細書における「警報作動」とは、遊技機のスピーカやランプ等を用いて警報を行う作動、球払出装置や遊技球発射装置の動作を規制する作動、遊技島のランプやホールコンピュータの表示装置を用いて警報を行う作動、ホールコンピュータを介して遊技施設の係員が携帯するインカムに通報する作動などを含めた作動を意味する。   Note that, in the above-described ball removing device, the insertion position detecting means (for example, the position detection sensor 271 in the embodiment) for detecting that the shielding member is disposed at the insertion position, and the insertion position detection means bring the shielding member into the insertion position. It is preferable to provide alarm means for performing an alarm operation when it is detected that the sensor is disposed. Here, “alarm activation” in this specification refers to an operation that performs an alarm using a speaker or a lamp of a gaming machine, an operation that regulates the operation of a ball dispensing device or a game ball launching device, a lamp or hall on a game island This means an operation including an operation of giving an alarm using a display device of a computer, an operation of notifying an income carried by an attendant of a game facility through a hall computer, and the like.

上記のように、本発明の球抜き装置では、ガラス扉の前面側に開口する球抜き操作孔の開口部の後方に、操作部材が球抜き操作孔を通って前枠の後方まで挿通されることを許容する挿通位置と操作部材の挿通を規制する遮蔽位置とに変位可能な遮蔽部材が設けられ、常には付勢手段により付勢されて遮蔽位置に配設される。遮蔽部材はガラス扉を閉止した状態でガラス扉の側方から変位操作可能になっており、球抜き作業を行うときに遮蔽部材を付勢手段の付勢力に抗して遮蔽位置から挿通位置に変位させることで、操作部材の挿通を許容する状態となり、この状態で開口部から球抜き操作孔に操作部材を挿入して開閉弁部材を開閉操作可能に構成される。このため、遊技者が単に球抜き操作孔の開口部に針金等を挿入しても、開口部の後方で遮蔽部材に突き当たって針金を挿通させることができず、簡単には悪戯操作を行うことができない。一方、遊技施設の係員は、前枠前方に閉止されたガラス扉の側方から遮蔽部材を挿通位置に変位させ、ガラス扉前面の開口部から球抜き操作孔に操作部材を挿入して開閉操作することで、ガラス扉や前枠を閉鎖施錠した状態のまま遊技機の前面側から球抜き操作を行うことができる。従って本構成によれば遊技施設の係員が行う球抜き作業の作業性を悪化させることなく、遊技者の悪戯行為に対する抑止力を高めた球抜き装置を提供することができる。   As described above, in the ball removal device of the present invention, the operation member is inserted through the ball removal operation hole to the rear of the front frame behind the opening portion of the ball removal operation hole that opens to the front side of the glass door. A displaceable shielding member is provided at an insertion position that permits this and a shielding position that restricts the insertion of the operation member, and is always urged by the urging means and disposed at the shielding position. The shielding member can be displaced from the side of the glass door with the glass door closed, and the shield member is moved from the shielding position to the insertion position against the urging force of the urging means when performing the ball removing operation. By displacing, the operation member is allowed to be inserted, and in this state, the open / close valve member can be opened and closed by inserting the operation member from the opening into the ball removal operation hole. For this reason, even if the player simply inserts a wire or the like into the opening of the ball punching operation hole, the player cannot hit the shielding member behind the opening and allow the wire to pass therethrough. I can't. On the other hand, an attendant at the game facility displaces the shielding member from the side of the glass door closed in front of the front frame to the insertion position, and inserts the operation member into the ball removal operation hole from the opening on the front of the glass door to open and close the operation. By doing so, the ball removal operation can be performed from the front side of the gaming machine with the glass door and the front frame closed and locked. Therefore, according to this configuration, it is possible to provide a ball removal device that increases the deterrence against the player's mischief without deteriorating the workability of the ball removal work performed by the staff of the gaming facility.

なお、上記球抜き装置に、遮蔽部材が挿通位置に配設されたことを検出する挿通位置検出手段と、挿通位置検出手段により遮蔽部材が挿通位置に配設されたことが検出されたときに警報作動を行う警報手段とを設けることにより、遊技施設の係員や管理者は、警報作動により当該パチンコ機が球抜き操作され得る状態になったことを早期に検知することができ、状況に応じて迅速かつ適切な対応をとることができる。   When the ball removal device detects that the shielding member is disposed at the insertion position, and the insertion position detection unit detects that the shielding member is disposed at the insertion position, and the insertion position detection unit detects that the shielding member is disposed at the insertion position. By providing an alarm means for performing an alarm operation, an attendant or manager of the game facility can detect at an early stage that the pachinko machine is ready for the ball-out operation by the alarm operation. Quick and appropriate response.

従って、以上のような本発明によれば、遊技施設の係員が行う球抜き作業の作業性を悪化させることなく、遊技者の悪戯行為に対する抑止力を高めた球抜き装置を提供することができ、挿通位置検出手段と警報手段を併設することにより悪戯行為を早期に検知して迅速な対応が可能な球抜き装置を提供することができる。   Therefore, according to the present invention as described above, it is possible to provide a ball removal device that increases the deterrence against the player's mischief without deteriorating the workability of the ball removal work performed by the staff of the game facility. By providing the insertion position detecting means and the warning means together, it is possible to provide a ball removing device capable of detecting a mischievous action at an early stage and responding promptly.

このように概要構成されるパチンコ機PMにあって、裏セット盤30における右枠杆33の上部に開閉弁部材110、操作連繋部材120、球抜き操作孔130および球抜き通路140などからなる球抜き機構101が設けられ、ガラス扉5の背後に位置する前枠2の左側部に遮蔽部材150、付勢バネ160などからなる遮蔽機構105が設けられて、球貯留払出機構40に貯留された遊技球をパチンコ機PMの正面から球抜き操作可能な球抜き装置100が構成される。以下では、まず図3を参照して右枠杆33に設けられた球抜き機構101について説明し、続けて図4〜図8の各図を参照しながら遮蔽機構105を含む球抜き装置100について説明する。なお、図3は待機通路部材44の後方を覆う蓋部材49(図7を参照)を取り外した状態で右枠杆33の上部を斜め後方から見た斜視図である。   In the pachinko machine PM generally configured as described above, a sphere including an opening / closing valve member 110, an operation connecting member 120, a ball removal operation hole 130, a ball removal passage 140, and the like above the right frame rod 33 in the back set board 30 A punching mechanism 101 is provided, and a shielding mechanism 105 including a shielding member 150 and a biasing spring 160 is provided on the left side of the front frame 2 located behind the glass door 5, and is stored in the ball storage / dispensing mechanism 40. A ball removing device 100 that can remove a game ball from the front of the pachinko machine PM is configured. In the following, first, the ball removal mechanism 101 provided on the right frame rod 33 will be described with reference to FIG. 3, and the ball removal device 100 including the shielding mechanism 105 will be described with reference to FIGS. explain. FIG. 3 is a perspective view of the upper portion of the right frame rod 33 as viewed obliquely from the rear with the lid member 49 (see FIG. 7) covering the back of the standby passage member 44 removed.

球抜き機構101は、待機通路部材44と隣接する支持面31aの後面側に支持面と平行な面内に揺動可能に枢支され待機通路の通路壁の一部を開閉可能な開閉弁部材110と、この開閉弁部材110に隣接して支持面の前面側に取り付けられ操作部材による開閉操作を連繋する操作連繋部材120と、操作連繋部材120を介して開閉弁部材110を開閉操作する操作部材をパチンコ機の前面側に設けられた開口部から受容して挿通させる球抜き操作孔130(131,132)と、開閉弁部材110が開放位置に切り換えられたときに開閉弁部材よりも上流側に位置する遊技球を流下させ基枠体の下端に形成された球排出口から機体外部に排出させる球抜き通路140などから構成される。   The ball removing mechanism 101 is an on-off valve member that is pivotally supported in a plane parallel to the support surface on the rear surface side of the support surface 31a adjacent to the standby passage member 44 so as to be able to open and close a part of the passage wall of the standby passage. 110, an operation linking member 120 that is attached to the front side of the support surface adjacent to the opening / closing valve member 110 and links the opening / closing operation by the operating member, and an operation for opening / closing the opening / closing valve member 110 via the operation linking member 120 A ball removal operation hole 130 (131, 132) for receiving and inserting the member from an opening provided on the front side of the pachinko machine, and upstream of the opening / closing valve member when the opening / closing valve member 110 is switched to the open position. It is configured by a ball removal passage 140 or the like for allowing a game ball located on the side to flow down and discharging the game ball from the ball discharge port formed at the lower end of the base frame body to the outside of the machine body.

待機通路部材44は、前後を仕切る仕切壁の前後両面に遊技球の球径よりも幾分大きめの間隔をおいて左右平行に立設された通路壁44L,44Rを有し、それぞれ通路壁44L,44Rで囲まれた前後各一列の通路溝が形成されている。このうち背面視右側の通路壁44Rは上方の一部が切り欠かれており、常には閉止位置にある開閉弁部材110の揺動通路壁110Rにより閉鎖されて連続した通路溝が形成される。待機通路部材44は通路溝の清掃容易化等のため基枠体31と別体に形成されており、支持面31aに立設された支持ボス34に嵌挿して支持させ、後方から蓋部材49をねじ固定することにより右枠杆33に取り付けられる。   The standby passage member 44 has passage walls 44L and 44R that are erected in parallel on the left and right sides of the partition wall that divides the front and rear sides with a space slightly larger than the ball diameter of the game ball. , 44R surrounded by one row of front and rear passage grooves. Of these, the passage wall 44R on the right side as viewed from the rear is partially cut away and is always closed by the swinging passage wall 110R of the on-off valve member 110 in the closed position to form a continuous passage groove. The standby passage member 44 is formed separately from the base frame body 31 for the purpose of facilitating the cleaning of the passage groove, and is inserted into and supported by the support boss 34 erected on the support surface 31a. Is attached to the right frame rod 33 by screwing.

待機通路部材44が右枠杆33に取り付けられると、通路溝の開放部が前方の支持面31aと後方の蓋部材49とに覆われて仕切壁の前後に各一列の待機通路44a,44bが形成される(図2および図3では後列側の待機通路44bのみが現れている)。待機通路は全体としてS字状に屈曲して形成されるとともに、切り欠き部は球圧が作用する屈曲部の外側壁面に形成されており、上流側に停留された遊技球の自重による押圧力が下流側で過大な圧力にならないように分散させるとともに、切り欠き部が開放されたときに遊技球が滑らかに流出するようになっている。   When the standby passage member 44 is attached to the right frame rod 33, the opening portion of the passage groove is covered with the front support surface 31a and the rear lid member 49, and the standby passages 44a and 44b are arranged in a row in front and rear of the partition wall. (In FIG. 2 and FIG. 3, only the standby passage 44b on the rear row side appears). The waiting passage is formed to be bent in an S-shape as a whole, and the notch is formed on the outer wall surface of the bent portion on which the ball pressure acts, and the pressing force due to the weight of the game ball stopped on the upstream side Is distributed so as not to cause excessive pressure on the downstream side, and the game ball flows out smoothly when the notch is opened.

開閉弁部材110は、本体の上下中間部に形成された円筒状の支軸孔112、支軸孔112の下側に位置して通路壁44Rの切り欠き部に相当する壁面が形成された揺動通路壁110R、支軸孔112の斜め上方に本体部から側方に突出して形成されたアーム部113、アーム部113の基端側に開口形成され揺動通路壁110Rで切り欠き部を閉止させた閉止位置で操作連繋部材120の係合突起123と係合し得る閉止保持係合孔113a、アーム部の下面を利用して形成され開閉弁部材110を背面視における反時計廻りに揺動させて切り欠き部を開放させた開放位置で操作連繋部材の係合突起123と係合し得る開放保持係合辺113bなどから構成される。開閉弁部材110は、支軸孔112を右枠杆の支持面31aに立設された枢支軸35に嵌挿することで支持面31aと平行な面内で揺動可能に支持され、その後方から蓋部材49をねじ固定することにより、上述した待機通路部材44とともに右枠杆33に取り付けられる。   The on-off valve member 110 is a cylindrical support shaft hole 112 formed in the upper and lower intermediate portions of the main body, and is located on the lower side of the support shaft hole 112 and has a wall surface corresponding to a notch portion of the passage wall 44R. The moving passage wall 110R, the arm portion 113 formed so as to project laterally from the main body portion obliquely above the support shaft hole 112, and the opening portion is formed on the base end side of the arm portion 113, and the notch portion is closed by the swinging passage wall 110R. The closing holding engagement hole 113a that can be engaged with the engagement protrusion 123 of the operation connecting member 120 at the closed position and the lower surface of the arm portion are formed to swing the on-off valve member 110 counterclockwise in the rear view. Thus, it is configured by an open holding engagement side 113b and the like that can be engaged with the engagement protrusion 123 of the operation connecting member at the open position where the notch is opened. The on-off valve member 110 is supported so as to be swingable in a plane parallel to the support surface 31a by inserting the support shaft hole 112 into the pivot shaft 35 provided upright on the support surface 31a of the right frame rod. The lid member 49 is fixed with screws from the side, so that the lid 49 is attached to the right frame rod 33 together with the standby passage member 44 described above.

操作連繋部材120は、図6および図7に示すように、縦長箱枠状のレバーケース120Aと、このレバーケース120Aに枢着されたレバー部材120Bとを主体として構成され、支持面31aの一部が後方に膨出されて形成された補助支持面31bの前面側に取り付けられている。レバー部材120Bは、上下に延びる揺動本体121と、この揺動本体121の上部に側方に突出して形成されたレバー部122、揺動本体121の下部に後方に突出して形成された先端半球のピン状の係合突起123、および揺動本体121の上下中間部に左右に突出して形成された枢結軸部125などからなり、枢結軸部125がレバーケース側の軸支孔に枢着されて、上方のレバー部122と下方の係合突起123とが所定の角度範囲で前後反対方向に揺動変位可能に配設される。   As shown in FIGS. 6 and 7, the operation linking member 120 is mainly composed of a lever box 120A having a vertically long box frame shape and a lever member 120B pivotally attached to the lever case 120A. The part is attached to the front side of the auxiliary support surface 31b formed by bulging rearward. The lever member 120B includes a swinging main body 121 that extends vertically, a lever part 122 that protrudes laterally from the top of the swinging main body 121, and a tip hemisphere that protrudes rearward from the bottom of the swinging main body 121. The pin-like engaging projection 123 and the pivot shaft 125 formed to project from the left and right at the upper and lower intermediate portions of the swinging main body 121, etc., and the pivot shaft 125 pivots on the pivot support hole on the lever case side. The upper lever portion 122 and the lower engaging projection 123 are disposed so as to be able to swing and displace in the front-rear opposite direction within a predetermined angular range.

レバー部材120Bは、詳細図示省略する付勢手段によりレバー部122が前方に、係合突起123が後方に(すなわち図7に示す側面視において時計廻りに)付勢されており、係合突起123が補助支持面31bに開口形成された係合突起挿通孔36を通って補助支持面31bの後面側に突出し、通常の遊技状態では、図2および図3に示すように開閉弁部材110の閉止保持係合孔113aと係合した状態、すなわち揺動通路壁110Rが待機通路部材44の切り欠き部を塞ぐ閉止位置に係止保持される。   In the lever member 120B, the lever portion 122 is urged forward and the engagement protrusion 123 is urged rearward (that is, clockwise in the side view shown in FIG. Protrudes to the rear surface side of the auxiliary support surface 31b through the engagement protrusion insertion hole 36 formed in the auxiliary support surface 31b. In a normal gaming state, the on-off valve member 110 is closed as shown in FIGS. The state of engagement with the holding engagement hole 113 a, that is, the swing passage wall 110 </ b> R is locked and held at the closed position where the notch portion of the standby passage member 44 is closed.

球抜き操作孔130(131,132)は、ガラス扉5および裏セット盤30を前枠2に閉止させた状態で操作連繋部材のレバー部122の前方に対峙する整合位置に、それぞれガラス扉5および前枠2を前後に貫通して形成されており、ガラス扉5側の球抜き操作孔131と前枠2側の球抜き操作孔132とが一連の球抜き操作孔130を形成し、後述する遮蔽部材150を挿通位置に配設したときにハートキー180(図4および図8を参照)を前枠2の後方に挿通可能になっている。このため、ガラス扉5を閉止した状態でもパチンコ機PMの前面側から球抜き操作孔130にハートキー180を挿入してレバー部122を押圧操作できるようになっている。   The ball punching operation holes 130 (131, 132) are respectively positioned at alignment positions facing the front of the lever portion 122 of the operation connecting member in a state where the glass door 5 and the back set board 30 are closed to the front frame 2. The ball opening operation hole 131 on the glass door 5 side and the ball removal operation hole 132 on the front frame 2 side form a series of ball removal operation holes 130, which will be described later. When the shielding member 150 is disposed at the insertion position, the heart key 180 (see FIGS. 4 and 8) can be inserted behind the front frame 2. For this reason, even when the glass door 5 is closed, the heart key 180 can be inserted into the ball removal operation hole 130 from the front side of the pachinko machine PM and the lever portion 122 can be pressed.

また球抜き通路140は、待機通路部材44の切り欠き部に隣接して支持面31aの後面側に形成された予備通路、予備通路の下部に支持面31aを前後に貫通して形成された連絡開口、および支持面31aの前面側に下方に延びて形成された下降通路などからなり、下降通路の下端部が遊技盤20から排出された遊技済み球を集合させる遊技済み球排出通路に合流して、基枠体31の下端に形成された球排出口に繋がっている。   Further, the ball removal passage 140 is a spare passage formed on the rear surface side of the support surface 31a adjacent to the cutout portion of the standby passage member 44, and a communication formed through the support surface 31a in the front and rear in the lower portion of the spare passage. The lower end of the downward passage is joined to a game-completed ball discharge passage that collects game balls that have been discharged from the game board 20, and the like. And connected to a ball outlet formed at the lower end of the base frame 31.

このような球抜き機構101では、通常の遊技状態、すなわち前枠2やガラス扉5、裏セット盤30等が閉止保持され、操作連繋部材の係合突起123が開閉弁部材の閉止保持係合孔113aと係合した状態において、揺動通路壁110Rが待機通路部材44の切り欠き部を塞いで待機通路44a,44bの通路壁を構成し、整列樋部材42から供給された遊技球が待機通路44a,44bを通って球払出装置45に導かれる。開閉弁部材110は係合突起123と閉止保持係合孔113aとの係合により自由な揺動が規制され、待機通路部材44の切り欠き部を塞ぐ閉止位置に係止保持される。   In such a ball removal mechanism 101, the normal gaming state, that is, the front frame 2, the glass door 5, the back set board 30 and the like are closed and held, and the engagement projection 123 of the operation connecting member is closed and engaged of the on-off valve member. When engaged with the hole 113a, the swinging passage wall 110R closes the notch portion of the standby passage member 44 to form the passage walls of the standby passages 44a and 44b, and the game balls supplied from the alignment rod member 42 are on standby. It is guided to the ball dispensing device 45 through the passages 44a and 44b. The on-off valve member 110 is controlled to freely swing by the engagement between the engagement protrusion 123 and the closing holding engagement hole 113a, and is latched and held at a closing position that closes the notch portion of the standby passage member 44.

一方、レバー部122がハートキー180により後方に押圧操作されると、係合突起123が補助支持面31bの前方に揺動待避して係合突起123と閉止保持係合孔113aとの係合が解除され、それまで規制されていた開閉弁部材110の揺動規制が解除される。待機通路44a,44bに遊技球が貯留された状態では、揺動通路壁110Rは待機通路44a,44b内に保持された遊技球の圧力を受けており、揺動規制が解除されるとこの圧力によって開閉弁部材110が枢支軸35を中心として背面視における反時計まわりに揺動され、揺動通路壁110Rが待機通路部材44の切り欠き部を開放する開放位置に変位する。そして、このように一旦開閉弁部材110が開放位置に変位すると、切り欠き部から次々に溢れ出る遊技球に押圧されて揺動通路壁110Rが揺動変位した状態が継続され、通過する遊技球がなくなるまで開放状態が保持される。   On the other hand, when the lever portion 122 is pressed backward by the heart key 180, the engaging projection 123 swings back in front of the auxiliary support surface 31b, and the engagement projection 123 engages with the closing holding engagement hole 113a. Is released, and the swing restriction of the on-off valve member 110 that has been restricted until then is released. In a state where game balls are stored in the standby passages 44a and 44b, the swing passage wall 110R receives the pressure of the game balls held in the standby passages 44a and 44b, and this pressure is released when the swing restriction is released. As a result, the on-off valve member 110 is swung counterclockwise about the pivot shaft 35 as viewed from the rear, and the rocking passage wall 110R is displaced to an open position where the notch portion of the standby passage member 44 is opened. Then, once the on-off valve member 110 is displaced to the open position in this way, the state where the swing passage wall 110R is swung and displaced by the game balls overflowing one after another from the notch portion continues and passes through. The open state is maintained until there is no more.

ここで、開閉弁部材110が開放位置に変位した状態では、斜め上方に変位した閉止保持係合孔113aに代わってアーム部下面の開放保持係合辺113bが係合突起挿通孔36の前方に位置する。このため、開閉弁部材110が開放位置に変位した状態でレバー部122への押圧力を解除すると、係合突起123が係合突起挿通孔36を通って開放保持係合辺113bの下側に突出して係合し、開閉弁部材110を開放位置に係止する。このため、レバー部122を常時押圧していなくとも、開閉弁部材110を開放位置に切り替えた状態で保持させることができる。   Here, in a state in which the on-off valve member 110 is displaced to the open position, the open holding engagement side 113b on the lower surface of the arm portion is placed in front of the engagement protrusion insertion hole 36 instead of the closing holding engagement hole 113a displaced obliquely upward. To position. For this reason, when the pressing force to the lever portion 122 is released in a state where the on-off valve member 110 is displaced to the open position, the engagement protrusion 123 passes through the engagement protrusion insertion hole 36 and is below the open holding engagement side 113b. Protruding and engaging, the on-off valve member 110 is locked in the open position. For this reason, even if the lever part 122 is not always pressed, the on-off valve member 110 can be held in a state of being switched to the open position.

従って、例えば球貯留タンク41に貯留する遊技球を全量球抜きするような場合には、前枠2を開放してレバー部122を直に操作することなく、前枠2およびガラス扉5を閉鎖した状態のままハートキー180を用いてパチンコ機前面側からレバー部122を揺動操作することができ、機体の前方からハートキー180をワンプッシュする簡単な操作だけで開閉弁部材110を閉止位置から開放位置に切り替えて、開閉弁部材110よりも上流側に貯留された遊技球を球抜き通路140に導き、継続して球抜きを行わせることができる。   Therefore, for example, when all the game balls stored in the ball storage tank 41 are removed, the front frame 2 and the glass door 5 are closed without opening the front frame 2 and operating the lever portion 122 directly. In this state, the lever 122 can be swung from the front side of the pachinko machine using the heart key 180, and the opening / closing valve member 110 is closed by a simple operation of pushing the heart key 180 from the front of the machine. Then, the game ball stored on the upstream side of the on-off valve member 110 is guided to the ball removal passage 140 and can be continuously removed.

また、球抜きが完了し、待機通路の上部に遊技球がなくなったときには、球抜き操作と同様にレバー部122を前方からワンプッシュして係合突起123と開放保持係合辺113bとの係合を解除し、係合突起123による揺動規制を解除する。すると、すでに遊技球からの押圧力が解除された開閉弁部材110は、その重心位置に対する支軸孔112の形成位置の関係により自重で時計廻りに揺動し、揺動通路壁110Rが切り欠き部を塞ぐ閉止位置に変位する。そして、レバー部122への押圧力を解除してハートキー180を引き抜くと係合突起123が補助支持面31bの後方に突出して閉止保持係合孔113aと係合し、開閉弁部材110が閉止位置に保持される。これにより待機通路部材44の切り欠き部が揺動通路壁110Rにより閉止保持され、待機通路44a,44bに流入した遊技球が球払出装置45に導かれる通常の遊技状態に復帰する。   Further, when the ball removal is completed and there is no game ball in the upper part of the standby passage, the lever portion 122 is pushed once from the front in the same manner as the ball removal operation, and the engagement protrusion 123 and the open holding engagement side 113b are engaged. The engagement is released, and the swing restriction by the engagement protrusion 123 is released. Then, the on-off valve member 110, from which the pressing force from the game ball has been released, swings clockwise by its own weight due to the relationship between the position of the support shaft hole 112 with respect to its center of gravity, and the swing passage wall 110R is cut away. It is displaced to the closed position that closes the part. Then, when the pressing force to the lever portion 122 is released and the heart key 180 is pulled out, the engaging projection 123 protrudes rearward of the auxiliary support surface 31b and engages with the closing holding engaging hole 113a, and the on-off valve member 110 is closed. Held in position. As a result, the cutout portion of the standby passage member 44 is closed and held by the swing passage wall 110R, and the game ball that has flowed into the standby passages 44a and 44b is returned to the normal gaming state where it is guided to the ball payout device 45.

以上のように構成される球抜き機構101に対して、ガラス扉5の背後に位置する前枠2の前面側に遮蔽機構105が設けられている。以下、図4〜図8の各図を参照しながら遮蔽機構105について説明する。なお、図4は前枠2の左上側部を斜め前方から見た遮蔽機構105の分解斜視図、図5はガラス扉5を擬似的に180度展開した状態で遮蔽位置にある遮蔽機構105を前枠の前方から見た正面図、図6は図5中のVI−VI矢視の平断面図、図7は球抜き装置100の左側面図、図8は遮蔽機構105を挿通位置に設定してハートキー180を挿通させた状態を示す正面図である。   A shielding mechanism 105 is provided on the front side of the front frame 2 located behind the glass door 5 with respect to the ball removing mechanism 101 configured as described above. Hereinafter, the shielding mechanism 105 will be described with reference to FIGS. 4 to 8. 4 is an exploded perspective view of the shielding mechanism 105 when the upper left portion of the front frame 2 is viewed obliquely from the front, and FIG. 5 shows the shielding mechanism 105 in the shielding position in a state where the glass door 5 is pseudo-expanded 180 degrees. FIG. 6 is a cross-sectional view taken along the line VI-VI in FIG. 5, FIG. 7 is a left side view of the ball removing device 100, and FIG. 8 sets the shielding mechanism 105 to the insertion position. It is a front view showing a state where the heart key 180 is inserted.

遮蔽機構105は、ガラス扉5の後方に位置する前枠2の左側縁部に、ハートキー180が球抜き操作孔130を通って前枠2の後方まで挿通されることを許容する挿通位置とハートキーの挿通を規制する遮蔽位置とにスライド変位可能に設けられ、ガラス扉5を閉止した状態でガラス扉5の側方から変位操作可能な遮蔽部材150と、この遮蔽部材150を遮蔽位置に付勢する付勢バネ160とを主体として構成される。   The shielding mechanism 105 has an insertion position that allows the heart key 180 to be inserted through the ball removal operation hole 130 to the rear of the front frame 2 at the left side edge of the front frame 2 positioned behind the glass door 5. A shielding member 150 that is slidably displaceable at a shielding position that restricts the insertion of the heart key and that can be displaced from the side of the glass door 5 with the glass door 5 closed, and the shielding member 150 at the shielding position. A biasing spring 160 for biasing is mainly configured.

前枠2の左側縁部は、ガラス扉5および上球皿6を揺動開閉したときの基端側の旋回軌跡に合わせて平断面視円弧状の扉受け2bが形成されており、その上部に球抜き操作孔132と隣接して遮蔽部材取付部17が設けられている。遮蔽部材取付部17には、前枠2を前後に貫通して遮蔽部材150の導出辺部を挿通させるスリット状の導出孔17a、ネジ158を受容して螺合保持するネジ受容孔17b、扉受け後方のリブ2cを左右に貫通してネジ162の昇降変位をガイドする長孔状のネジガイド孔17cなどが形成され、ガラス扉5の対応位置にはガラス扉5を開放したときにネジ158を受容する受容切り欠き部5aが形成されている(図6を参照)。   A left side edge portion of the front frame 2 is formed with a door receiver 2b having an arc shape in a plan view in accordance with a turning trajectory on the base end side when the glass door 5 and the upper ball tray 6 are swingably opened and closed. A shielding member attaching portion 17 is provided adjacent to the ball removal operation hole 132. The shielding member mounting portion 17 includes a slit-like lead-out hole 17a that passes through the front frame 2 in the front-rear direction and passes through the lead-out side portion of the shield member 150, a screw receiving hole 17b that receives and holds the screw 158, and a door. An elongated screw guide hole 17c that penetrates the rib 2c on the rear side of the receiver to the left and right and guides the upward and downward displacement of the screw 162 is formed, and the screw 158 is formed at a corresponding position of the glass door 5 when the glass door 5 is opened. The receiving notch part 5a which receives is formed (see FIG. 6).

遮蔽部材150は、扉受け2bの前面に沿った円弧形状に形成されたスライド辺部151、スライド辺部151の右端側が導出孔17aの形成位置に合わせて直角に折り曲げられ後方に延びる導出辺部152、導出辺部152の後端部が右方に直角に折り曲げられて形成されるシャッタ片部153、スライド辺部151の前端部に扉受け2bの先端形状に合わせて屈曲成型されたスライド操作部155などからなり、スライド辺部151の略中央部には長孔状のガイド孔151b、導出辺部152にはネジ162を受容するネジ孔152cが形成されている。またスライド辺部151の右端側には前方に突出して操作ピン157が固着されている。遮蔽部材150は、例えば板厚1.0〜1.6mm程度の鋼板を打ち抜きおよび曲げ成形して操作ピン157をカシメ固着し、必要に応じて所要の表面処理を施して形成される。   The shielding member 150 has a slide side 151 formed in an arc shape along the front surface of the door receiver 2b, and a right side of the slide side 151 is bent at a right angle in accordance with the formation position of the lead hole 17a and extends backward. 152, a shutter piece portion 153 formed by bending the rear end portion of the lead-out side portion 152 at a right angle to the right, and a slide operation formed by bending the front end portion of the slide side portion 151 in accordance with the tip shape of the door receiver 2b. A long hole-shaped guide hole 151b is formed in the approximate center of the slide side 151, and a screw hole 152c for receiving the screw 162 is formed in the lead-out side 152. Further, an operation pin 157 is fixed to the right end side of the slide side 151 so as to protrude forward. The shielding member 150 is formed, for example, by punching and bending a steel plate having a thickness of about 1.0 to 1.6 mm, caulking and fixing the operation pins 157, and performing necessary surface treatment as necessary.

遮蔽部材150は、扉受け2bの前面側から導出孔17aに導出辺部152を挿通して前枠2の後面側に挿通させ、スライド辺部151を扉受け2bの前面に、スライド操作部155を扉受け2bの先端部に係合させて、前枠2の後面側に突出したシャッタ片部153を球抜き操作孔132の後面位置に合わせて図4中の部分拡大図に示すように右方に直角に折り曲げることで遮蔽部材取付部17に装着される。次いで扉受け2bの前方からガイド孔151bを通してネジ受容穴17bにネジ158を螺合させ、扉受け2bの後面側でネジガイド孔17cを通してネジ孔152cにネジ162を螺合させることで、これらの長孔によって規定される所定範囲で上下方向にのみスライド変位自在に支持される。   The shielding member 150 is inserted into the outlet hole 17a from the front side of the door receiver 2b through the outlet side 152 and inserted into the rear side of the front frame 2, and the slide side 151 is placed on the front surface of the door receiver 2b. Is engaged with the front end portion of the door receiver 2b, and the shutter piece portion 153 protruding to the rear surface side of the front frame 2 is aligned with the rear surface position of the ball removal operation hole 132, as shown in the partial enlarged view of FIG. It is attached to the shielding member attaching part 17 by being bent at right angles to the direction. Next, the screw 158 is screwed into the screw receiving hole 17b through the guide hole 151b from the front of the door receiver 2b, and the screw 162 is screwed into the screw hole 152c through the screw guide hole 17c on the rear surface side of the door receiver 2b. It is slidably supported only in the vertical direction within a predetermined range defined by the long hole.

ここで、シャッタ片部153は、球抜き操作孔132の後端開口部を開放または遮蔽する開閉板であり、上記のように支持された遮蔽部材150を下方にスライドさせたときに、スライド範囲の下端位置でシャッタ片部153が球抜き操作孔132の下方に位置してハートキー180を挿通可能な挿通状態とする一方、この挿通位置から遮蔽部材150を上方にスライドさせたときには、シャッタ片部153が球抜き操作孔132の後方に位置して開口後面を遮蔽し、ハートキー180の挿通を規制する遮蔽状態にするように位置および形状寸法が設定されている。   Here, the shutter piece portion 153 is an opening / closing plate that opens or shields the rear end opening of the ball removal operation hole 132, and when the shielding member 150 supported as described above is slid downward, a sliding range is provided. The shutter piece 153 is positioned below the ball removal operation hole 132 at the lower end position of the lens so that the heart key 180 can be inserted, and when the shielding member 150 is slid upward from the insertion position, the shutter piece The position and shape are set so that the portion 153 is positioned behind the ball removal operation hole 132 to shield the rear surface of the opening and to restrict the insertion of the heart key 180.

また、ガイド孔151bおよびネジガイド孔17cは、それぞれネジ158およびネジ162の軸径よりも幾分大きめの溝幅で上下に長い長孔状に形成されており、上下方向の寸法は、球抜き操作孔132の後端の開口部をシャッタ片部153により遮蔽状態と挿通状態とに切り替え得る所定のストローク、具体的にはハートキー180の直径よりも幾分大きく設定されている。すなわちガイド孔151bおよびネジガイド孔17cは、シャッタ片部153が球抜き操作孔132の開口部を開閉する上記所定のスライド範囲内に遮蔽部材の昇降範囲を規定するとともに、スライド操作部155と扉受け前端部との係合作用と相まって、このスライド範囲で遮蔽部材150が前後に傾動することなく滑らかに上下に昇降変位するようにガイドする。   In addition, the guide hole 151b and the screw guide hole 17c are formed in a long hole shape with a groove width slightly larger than the shaft diameter of the screw 158 and the screw 162, respectively. A predetermined stroke at which the opening at the rear end of the operation hole 132 can be switched between the shield state and the insertion state by the shutter piece 153, specifically, is set somewhat larger than the diameter of the heart key 180. That is, the guide hole 151b and the screw guide hole 17c define the raising / lowering range of the shielding member within the predetermined slide range in which the shutter piece portion 153 opens and closes the opening of the ball removal operation hole 132, and the slide operation portion 155 and the door. Coupled with the engaging action with the receiving front end, the shielding member 150 is guided to move up and down smoothly without tilting back and forth in this sliding range.

そして、扉受け2bの後面側で、導出辺部に螺着されたネジ162と、その上方のリブ2cに螺着されたネジ162とに付勢バネ両端の各フック部を係止し、所定の初期張力をもって付勢バネ160を張り渡す。これにより遮蔽部材150は、シャッタ片部153が球抜き操作孔132の後方に位置して球抜き操作孔132を遮蔽する遮蔽位置(図7を参照)と、シャッタ片部153が球抜き操作孔132の下方に位置してハートキー180を前枠2の後方に挿通させる挿通位置(図8を参照)との間で上下にスライド変位可能に装着され、常には付勢バネ160のバネ力により上方に付勢されて球抜き操作孔132を塞ぐ遮蔽位置に配設される。   Then, on the rear surface side of the door receiver 2b, the hook portions at both ends of the urging spring are locked to the screw 162 screwed to the lead-out side portion and the screw 162 screwed to the rib 2c thereabove. The urging spring 160 is stretched with an initial tension of. Thereby, the shielding member 150 includes a shielding position (see FIG. 7) where the shutter piece portion 153 is positioned behind the ball removal operation hole 132 and shields the ball removal operation hole 132, and the shutter piece portion 153 is a ball removal operation hole. It is mounted so as to be slidable up and down between the insertion position (see FIG. 8) that is positioned below 132 and allows the heart key 180 to be inserted behind the front frame 2, and is always applied by the spring force of the biasing spring 160. It is disposed at a shielding position that is biased upward to close the ball removal operation hole 132.

以上のように構成される球抜き機構101および遮蔽機構105を備えた球抜き装置100では、図6に示すように、遊技提供状態において遮蔽機構105がガラス扉5の背後に配設され、遮蔽部材150のシャッタ片部153が球抜き操作孔132の後端開口部を塞ぐ遮蔽位置に配設される。またガラス扉側の球抜き操作孔131は円筒部が後方に延びて形成され、ガラス扉5の閉鎖姿勢で前枠側の球抜き操作孔132の直前に位置して配設される。   In the ball removing device 100 including the ball removing mechanism 101 and the shielding mechanism 105 configured as described above, as shown in FIG. 6, the shielding mechanism 105 is disposed behind the glass door 5 in the game providing state, and is shielded. The shutter piece 153 of the member 150 is disposed at a shielding position that closes the rear end opening of the ball removal operation hole 132. The glass door-side ball removal operation hole 131 is formed with a cylindrical portion extending rearward, and is disposed in front of the front frame-side ball removal operation hole 132 when the glass door 5 is closed.

このため、不正行為を行おうとする者がガラス扉5の前面側から球抜き操作孔131に針金等を差し込んでも、針金の先端部が遮蔽部材のシャッタ片部153に突き当たって針金を前枠2の後方に挿通させることができず、裏セット盤30に設けられた球抜き機構101に対して悪戯行為を行うことができない。またガラス扉側の球抜き操作孔131は、その直径に比して孔の深さが長く形成されたうえ後端部が前枠側の球抜き操作孔132の直前に位置して配設され、かつ球抜き操作孔132の開口前縁にはテーパー状の面取りが施されている。このため、ガラス扉5の前面側から球抜き操作孔131に挿入した針金は前枠2の前面で屈曲されることなく前枠側の球抜き操作孔132に受容され、球抜き操作孔132の右側方に位置する遊技盤20に対して悪戯行為を行うこともできない。   For this reason, even if a person who intends to cheat inserts a wire or the like from the front side of the glass door 5 into the ball removal operation hole 131, the tip of the wire hits the shutter piece 153 of the shielding member and the wire is attached to the front frame 2. It is not possible to insert the rear part of the ball into the rear, and it is not possible to perform a mischief act on the ball removing mechanism 101 provided on the back set board 30. Further, the glass door-side ball removal operation hole 131 is formed so that the depth of the hole is longer than the diameter thereof, and the rear end portion is disposed immediately before the front frame-side ball removal operation hole 132. In addition, a tapered chamfer is applied to the opening front edge of the ball removal operation hole 132. For this reason, the wire inserted into the ball removal operation hole 131 from the front side of the glass door 5 is received by the ball removal operation hole 132 on the front frame side without being bent at the front surface of the front frame 2. A mischievous act cannot be performed with respect to the game board 20 located in the right side.

一方、遮蔽部材150のスライド操作部155は、ガラス扉5を閉鎖した状態においてガラス扉5の後方に目立たないように配設されており、パチンコ機前方の椅子に着座した遊技者の視線位置からは直接的に視認されない位置にスライド操作可能に配設されている。そしてこのスライド操作部155に指を掛けて下方に押圧し、付勢バネ160のバネ力に抗して遮蔽部材150を挿通位置までスライドさせると、シャッタ片部153が球抜き操作孔132の下方に移動してハートキーを挿通させる挿通状態に設定される。   On the other hand, the slide operation portion 155 of the shielding member 150 is disposed so as not to be conspicuous behind the glass door 5 in a state where the glass door 5 is closed, and from the line of sight of the player seated on the chair in front of the pachinko machine. Is arranged to be slidable at a position where it is not directly visible. Then, when the sliding operation portion 155 is put on the finger and pressed downward and the shielding member 150 is slid to the insertion position against the spring force of the urging spring 160, the shutter piece portion 153 moves below the ball removal operation hole 132. It is set to the insertion state where it moves to and the heart key is inserted.

従って遊技施設の係員は、このように遮蔽部材150を挿通位置にスライド変位させた状態で球抜き操作孔130(131,132)にハートキー180を挿入して前枠2の後方に挿通させることができ、球抜き操作孔132の後方に位置整合して配設された操作連繋部材120のレバー部122を押圧して球抜き操作を行うことができる(図8を参照)。すなわち、遊技施設の係員は球抜き操作を行うにあたって、逐一ガラス扉5や前枠2の閉鎖施錠状態を解除する必要がなく、パチンコ機PMの前面側から球抜き操作を行うことができる。   Accordingly, the clerk of the game facility inserts the heart key 180 into the ball removal operation hole 130 (131, 132) in the state in which the shielding member 150 is slid and displaced to the insertion position as described above, and inserts it behind the front frame 2. The ball removal operation can be performed by pressing the lever portion 122 of the operation connecting member 120 disposed in alignment with the rear of the ball removal operation hole 132 (see FIG. 8). That is, it is not necessary for the clerk of the game facility to release the closed and locked state of the glass door 5 and the front frame 2 one by one when performing the ball removal operation, and the ball removal operation can be performed from the front side of the pachinko machine PM.

他方、このような球抜き操作は、パチンコ機PMの前方に立って両手で操作を行う必要がある。このため、周囲の遊技者の視線や防犯用の監視カメラの存在を気にしながら悪戯行為を行う不正行為者にとっては大きな抵抗感を生じさせ、かかる悪戯行為を抑制する抑止的効果を発揮させることができる。   On the other hand, such a ball removal operation needs to be performed with both hands standing in front of the pachinko machine PM. For this reason, a great sense of resistance will be created for fraudulent players who perform mischief while paying attention to the gaze of surrounding players and the presence of surveillance cameras for crime prevention, and to exert a deterrent effect that suppresses such mischief Can do.

なお、遮蔽機構105では、スライド辺部151に操作ピン157が設けられており、ガラス扉5を開放した状態でパチンコ機の正面から昇降操作可能になっている。このため、例えばガラス扉5を開放して保守作業を行っているときに球抜きが必要になったような場合には、操作ピン157に指を掛けて遮蔽部材150を挿通位置にスライド変位させ、球抜き操作孔132にハートキーを挿入して球抜き作業を行うことも可能になっている。   In the shielding mechanism 105, an operation pin 157 is provided on the slide side portion 151, and can be lifted and lowered from the front of the pachinko machine with the glass door 5 opened. For this reason, for example, when it is necessary to remove the ball when the glass door 5 is opened and maintenance work is performed, the shielding member 150 is slid to the insertion position by placing a finger on the operation pin 157. It is also possible to perform a ball removal operation by inserting a heart key into the ball removal operation hole 132.

従って、以上説明した球抜き装置100によれば、コンパクト且つ低廉な装置構成で、遊技施設の係員が行う球抜き作業の作業性を悪化させることなく、遊技者の悪戯行為に対する抑止力を高めた球抜き装置を提供することができる。   Therefore, according to the ball removal device 100 described above, the deterrence of the player against mischief is improved with a compact and inexpensive device configuration without deteriorating the workability of the ball removal work performed by the staff of the game facility. A ball removal device can be provided.

次に、遮蔽機構の他の構成例を図9に示しており、以下本図を参照しながらこの遮蔽機構205について説明する。なお、図9は前枠2の左上側部を斜め後方から見た遮蔽機構205の分解斜視図である。遮蔽機構205は、ガラス扉5を閉止した状態でガラス扉の側方から変位操作可能な遮蔽部材250と、この遮蔽部材250を遮蔽位置に付勢する付勢バネ160とを主体として構成され、本実施形態では遮蔽機構205に位置検出構造270を併設して球抜き装置を構成した例を示す。なお遮蔽機構205の配設位置および全体的な構成形態は前述した遮蔽機構105と同様であり、以下では同様の構成部分に同一番号を付して重複説明を省略し相違する部分を中心に説明する。   Next, another configuration example of the shielding mechanism is shown in FIG. 9, and the shielding mechanism 205 will be described below with reference to FIG. FIG. 9 is an exploded perspective view of the shielding mechanism 205 when the upper left portion of the front frame 2 is viewed obliquely from the rear. The shielding mechanism 205 is mainly composed of a shielding member 250 that can be displaced from the side of the glass door in a state in which the glass door 5 is closed, and a biasing spring 160 that biases the shielding member 250 to the shielding position. In the present embodiment, an example in which a position detection structure 270 is added to the shielding mechanism 205 to configure a ball removal device is shown. In addition, the arrangement | positioning position of the shielding mechanism 205 and the whole structure form are the same as that of the shielding mechanism 105 mentioned above, and below, it attaches | subjects the same number to the same component, it abbreviate | omits duplication description and demonstrates centering on a different part. To do.

前枠2の左側縁上部には、球抜き操作孔132と隣接して遮蔽部材取付部18が設けられている。遮蔽部材取付部18は、扉受け2bを前後に貫通して形成され操作ピン257の昇降変位をガイドする長孔状のピンガイド孔18c、ネジ158を扉受けの後面側から受容して螺合保持するネジ受容孔、位置検出センサ271を取着するセンサ取付部、および扉受け後方のリブ2cが切り欠かれて位置検出センサ271の検出レバーを挿通させる切り欠き部18dなどから構成される。   A shielding member mounting portion 18 is provided on the upper left edge of the front frame 2 adjacent to the ball removal operation hole 132. The shielding member mounting portion 18 is formed through the door receiver 2b in the front-rear direction and receives a long pin-shaped pin guide hole 18c for guiding the up-and-down displacement of the operation pin 257 and a screw 158 from the rear surface side of the door receiver and screwed together. It comprises a screw receiving hole for holding, a sensor mounting portion for attaching the position detection sensor 271, and a notch portion 18 d for inserting the detection lever of the position detection sensor 271 by cutting out the rib 2 c behind the door receiver.

遮蔽部材250は、扉受け2bの後面に沿った円弧形状に形成されたスライド辺部251、スライド辺部251の右端側がリブ2cの形成位置に合わせて折り曲げられ後方に延びる導出辺部252、導出辺部252の後端部が右方に直角に折り曲げられて形成されたシャッタ片部253、スライド辺部251の前端部に扉受け2bの先端形状に合わせて屈曲成型されたスライド操作部255などからなり、スライド辺部251の略中央部には長孔状のガイド孔251b、導出辺部252の中央部にはネジ162を受容するネジ孔252c、導出辺部252の下部には舌片状の被検出片部252d、導出辺部の後端にはシャッタ片部253の上下にリブ2cの厚さに合わせたガイドクリップ252eが形成されている。またスライド辺部251には前方に突出して操作ピン257が固着されている。遮蔽部材250は、前述した遮蔽部材150と同様の金属材料を用い同様の加工手段で形成される。   The shielding member 250 includes a slide side 251 formed in an arc shape along the rear surface of the door receiver 2b, a lead-out side 252 that extends rearward by bending the right end side of the slide side 251 in accordance with the formation position of the rib 2c, and lead-out. A shutter piece portion 253 formed by bending the rear end portion of the side portion 252 to the right at a right angle, a slide operation portion 255 bent at the front end portion of the slide side portion 251 in accordance with the tip shape of the door receiver 2b, etc. The slide side portion 251 has an elongated guide hole 251b at the substantially central portion thereof, the lead portion 252 has a screw hole 252c for receiving the screw 162 at the central portion thereof, and the lower portion of the lead side portion 252 has a tongue-like shape. A guide clip 252e is formed on the upper and lower sides of the shutter piece 253 at the rear end of the detected piece 252d and the lead-out side so as to match the thickness of the rib 2c. An operation pin 257 is fixed to the slide side 251 so as to protrude forward. The shielding member 250 is formed by the same processing means using the same metal material as the shielding member 150 described above.

遮蔽部材250は、扉受け2bの後面側から上下のガイドクリップ252eをリブ2cに係合させ、操作ピン257をピンガイド孔18cに係合させて、スライド操作部255を扉受け2bの背面側から先端に嵌合させることで遮蔽部材取付部18に装着される。次いで扉受け2bの後方からガイド孔251bを通してネジ受容穴にネジ258を螺合させることで、ガイド孔251bおよびピンガイド孔18cによって規定される所定範囲で上下方向にのみスライド変位自在に支持される。   The shielding member 250 engages the upper and lower guide clips 252e with the rib 2c from the rear surface side of the door receiver 2b, engages the operation pin 257 with the pin guide hole 18c, and connects the slide operation portion 255 to the rear side of the door receiver 2b. It is attached to the shielding member mounting portion 18 by being fitted to the tip. Next, the screw 258 is screwed into the screw receiving hole through the guide hole 251b from the rear side of the door receiver 2b, so that the sliding support is supported only in the vertical direction within a predetermined range defined by the guide hole 251b and the pin guide hole 18c. .

シャッタ片部253は、上記のように支持された遮蔽部材250を下方にスライドさせたときに、スライド範囲の下端位置で球抜き操作孔132の下方に位置してハートキー180を挿通可能な挿通状態とする一方、この挿通位置から遮蔽部材250を上方にスライドさせたときに、球抜き操作孔132の後方に位置して開口後面を遮蔽し、ハートキー180の挿通を規制する遮蔽状態にするように位置および形状寸法が設定されている。   When the shielding member 250 supported as described above is slid downward, the shutter piece portion 253 is positioned below the ball removal operation hole 132 at the lower end position of the sliding range and is inserted through the heart key 180. On the other hand, when the shielding member 250 is slid upward from this insertion position, the rear surface of the opening is shielded by being positioned behind the ball removal operation hole 132 and the insertion of the heart key 180 is restricted. The position and the shape dimension are set as follows.

また、ガイド孔251bおよびピンガイド孔18cは、それぞれネジ258および操作ピン257の外径よりも幾分大きめの溝幅で上下に長い長孔状に形成されており、上下方向の寸法は、シャッタ片部253により球抜き操作孔132の後端の開口部を遮蔽状態と挿通状態とに切り替え得るストロークに設定されている。すなわちガイド孔251bおよびピンガイド孔18cは、シャッタ片部253が球抜き操作孔132の開口部を開閉するスライド範囲内に遮蔽部材の昇降範囲を規定するとともに、スライド操作部255およびガイドクリップ252eのガイド作用と相まって、このスライド範囲で遮蔽部材250が滑らかに上下に昇降変位するようにガイドする。   Further, the guide hole 251b and the pin guide hole 18c are each formed in a long hole shape with a groove width slightly larger than the outer diameter of the screw 258 and the operation pin 257, respectively, and the vertical dimension is determined by the shutter size. The stroke at which the opening at the rear end of the ball removal operation hole 132 can be switched between the shielding state and the insertion state by the one-sided portion 253 is set. That is, the guide hole 251b and the pin guide hole 18c define the raising / lowering range of the shielding member within the slide range in which the shutter piece portion 253 opens and closes the opening of the ball removal operation hole 132, and the slide operation portion 255 and the guide clip 252e. Coupled with the guide action, the shielding member 250 is guided so as to move up and down smoothly in this sliding range.

そして、扉受け2bの後面側で、導出辺部のネジ孔252cに螺着されたネジ162とその上方のリブ2cに螺着されたネジとに付勢バネ160の両端のフック部を係止し、所定の初期張力をもって付勢バネ160を張り渡す。これにより遮蔽部材250は、シャッタ片部253が球抜き操作孔132の後方に位置して球抜き操作孔132を遮蔽する遮蔽位置と、球抜き操作孔132の下方に位置してハートキー180の挿通を許容する挿通位置との間で上下にスライド変位可能に装着され、常には付勢バネ160のバネ力により上方に付勢されて球抜き操作孔132を塞ぐ遮蔽位置に配設される。   Then, on the rear surface side of the door receiver 2b, the hook portions at both ends of the biasing spring 160 are locked to the screw 162 screwed into the screw hole 252c on the lead-out side portion and the screw screwed to the rib 2c thereabove. Then, the biasing spring 160 is stretched with a predetermined initial tension. As a result, the shielding member 250 has the shutter piece portion 253 positioned behind the ball removal operation hole 132 to shield the ball removal operation hole 132, and located below the ball removal operation hole 132 and the heart key 180. It is mounted so as to be slidable up and down with respect to the insertion position allowing insertion, and is always disposed at a shielding position where it is urged upward by the spring force of the urging spring 160 to block the ball removal operation hole 132.

一方、球抜き操作孔の下方に位置する前枠2の後面側に位置検出構造270が設けられている。位置検出構造270は、球抜き操作孔下側のセンサ取付部に取着された位置検出センサ271を主体として構成される。図では位置検出センサ271として検出レバーを有するリミットスイッチを用いた形態を例示しており、検出レバーが切り欠き部18dを通って遮蔽部材250の被検出片部252dの摺動軌跡上に配設され、被検出片部252dの高さ位置を検出することで遮蔽部材250の位置、すなわち遮蔽部材250が遮蔽位置にあるか挿通位置にあるかを検出する。位置検出センサ271の検出信号は主制御装置81に入力されている。   On the other hand, a position detection structure 270 is provided on the rear side of the front frame 2 located below the ball punching operation hole. The position detection structure 270 is mainly configured by a position detection sensor 271 attached to a sensor mounting portion below the ball punching operation hole. In the figure, a form using a limit switch having a detection lever as the position detection sensor 271 is illustrated, and the detection lever is disposed on the sliding locus of the detected piece 252d of the shielding member 250 through the notch 18d. Then, by detecting the height position of the detected piece portion 252d, the position of the shielding member 250, that is, whether the shielding member 250 is in the shielding position or the insertion position is detected. A detection signal from the position detection sensor 271 is input to the main controller 81.

例えば図9に示すように遮蔽部材250が遮蔽位置にあるときには、被検出片部252dが切り欠き部18dの上部に位置検出センサ271の検出レバーと離れて位置しており、位置検出センサ271は検出レバーの角度位置から遮蔽部材250が遮蔽位置にあることを検出し、これに応じた検出信号(例えばOFF号)を主制御装置81に出力する。   For example, as shown in FIG. 9, when the shielding member 250 is in the shielding position, the detected piece portion 252d is located above the notch portion 18d away from the detection lever of the position detection sensor 271, and the position detection sensor 271 is From the angular position of the detection lever, it is detected that the shielding member 250 is at the shielding position, and a detection signal (for example, OFF number) corresponding to this is output to the main control device 81.

一方、遮蔽部材250が付勢バネ160のバネ力に抗して下方にスライドされると、下動する被検出片部252dが位置検出センサ271の検出レバーと係合して検出レバーを揺動変位させ、シャッタ片部253が球抜き操作孔132の後端開口部を開放した挿通位置では位置検出センサの接点を反転させる。これにより位置検出センサ271は遮蔽部材250が挿通位置に切り替えられたことを検出し、これに応じた検出信号(例えばON信号)を主制御装置81に出力する。   On the other hand, when the shielding member 250 is slid downward against the spring force of the biasing spring 160, the detected piece 252d that moves downward engages with the detection lever of the position detection sensor 271 and swings the detection lever. The contact point of the position detection sensor is reversed at the insertion position where the shutter piece 253 opens the rear end opening of the ball removal operation hole 132. Accordingly, the position detection sensor 271 detects that the shielding member 250 has been switched to the insertion position, and outputs a detection signal (for example, an ON signal) corresponding thereto to the main controller 81.

主制御装置81は、入力された検出信号が挿通位置を表す信号(上記例ではON信号)であるときに警報作動を行う。例えば、前枠2に設けられた表示ランプ16や遊技盤20に設けられた表示ランプ26のうち何れかを点灯または点滅作動させ、あるいはスピーカ13から所定の警報音を発生させ、または外部中継端子基板85を介して遊技島の報知ランプやホールコンピュータの表示装置に警報を表示させ、若しくはホールコンピュータを介して遊技施設の係員が携帯するインカムに警報信号を送信して通報するような警報作動を行う。   The main control device 81 performs an alarm operation when the input detection signal is a signal indicating the insertion position (ON signal in the above example). For example, either the display lamp 16 provided on the front frame 2 or the display lamp 26 provided on the game board 20 is turned on or blinked, a predetermined alarm sound is generated from the speaker 13, or an external relay terminal An alarm operation is performed such that an alarm is displayed on a notification lamp on a gaming island or a display device of a hall computer via the substrate 85, or an alarm signal is transmitted to an income carried by a staff member of the gaming facility via the hall computer. Do.

以上のように構成される遮蔽機構205を備えた球抜き装置においても、前述した遮蔽機構105を備えた球抜き装置と同様に、不正行為を行おうとする者がガラス扉5の前面側から球抜き操作孔131に針金等を差し込んでも、針金の先端部が遮蔽部材のシャッタ片部253に突き当たって針金を前枠2の後方に挿通させることができず、裏セット盤30に設けられた球抜き機構101に対して悪戯行為を行うことができない。   Also in the ball removing device provided with the shielding mechanism 205 configured as described above, a person who intends to cheat from the front side of the glass door 5 performs the ball removal from the front side of the glass door 5 in the same manner as the ball removing device provided with the shielding mechanism 105 described above. Even when a wire or the like is inserted into the punching operation hole 131, the tip of the wire hits the shutter piece 253 of the shielding member and the wire cannot be inserted behind the front frame 2. A mischievous action cannot be performed on the punching mechanism 101.

一方、パチンコ機前方の椅子に着座した遊技者の視線位置からは直接的に視認されないガラス扉5の後方位置に、遮蔽部材250のスライド操作部255が操作可能に配設されており、このスライド操作部255に指を掛けて遮蔽部材250を挿通位置にスライドさせることで、ハートキー180を挿通可能な挿通状態に設定される。このため、遊技施設の係員は、遮蔽部材250を挿通位置にスライド変位させて球抜き操作孔130(131,132)にハートキー180を挿入し、レバー部122を押圧操作することで球抜き作業を行うことができ、ガラス扉5や前枠2の閉鎖施錠状態を解除することなく、パチンコ機PMの前面側から球抜き作業を行うことができる。   On the other hand, a slide operation portion 255 of the shielding member 250 is operably disposed at a rear position of the glass door 5 that is not directly visible from the line of sight of the player seated on the chair in front of the pachinko machine. By placing the finger on the operation unit 255 and sliding the shielding member 250 to the insertion position, the insertion state is set in which the heart key 180 can be inserted. For this reason, the clerk of the game facility slides the shielding member 250 to the insertion position, inserts the heart key 180 into the ball removal operation hole 130 (131, 132), and presses the lever portion 122 to remove the ball. The ball removing operation can be performed from the front side of the pachinko machine PM without releasing the closed and locked state of the glass door 5 and the front frame 2.

他方、このような球抜き操作は、パチンコ機PMの前方に立って両手で操作を行う必要があることから、周囲の遊技者の視線や防犯用の監視カメラの存在を気にする不正行為者に大きな抵抗感を惹起させ、悪戯行為を効果的に抑制することができる。さらに、本構成の球抜き装置では、遮蔽部材250が挿通位置に配設されると位置検出センサ271によりその状態が検出され、主制御装置81により所定の警報作動が行われる。このため、遊技施設の係員や管理者は、当該パチンコ機PMが球抜き操作され得る状態になったことを早期に検知することができ、状況に応じて迅速かつ適切な対応をとることができる。   On the other hand, such ball pulling operation requires standing with the front of the pachinko machine PM and using both hands, so an unauthorized person who cares about the gaze of surrounding players and the existence of security surveillance cameras. It is possible to induce a great sense of resistance and to effectively prevent mischief. Further, in the ball removing device of this configuration, when the shielding member 250 is disposed at the insertion position, the state is detected by the position detection sensor 271, and a predetermined alarm operation is performed by the main control device 81. For this reason, a staff member or manager of the game facility can detect at an early stage that the pachinko machine PM is ready for the ball removal operation, and can take a prompt and appropriate response depending on the situation. .

また遮蔽機構205では、スライド辺部251に操作ピン257が設けられており、ガラス扉5を開放した状態でパチンコ機の正面から昇降操作可能になっている。このため、ガラス扉5を開放して保守作業を行っているときに球抜きが必要になったような場合には、操作ピン257に指を掛けて遮蔽部材250を挿通位置にスライド変位させ、球抜き操作孔132にハートキーを挿入して球抜き作業を行うことも可能になっている。   Further, in the shielding mechanism 205, an operation pin 257 is provided on the slide side portion 251 so that it can be lifted and lowered from the front of the pachinko machine with the glass door 5 opened. For this reason, when it is necessary to remove the ball when the glass door 5 is opened and maintenance work is performed, a finger is placed on the operation pin 257 to slide the shielding member 250 to the insertion position, It is also possible to perform a ball removal operation by inserting a heart key into the ball removal operation hole 132.

従って、以上説明したような球抜き装置によれば、コンパクトな構成で、遊技者の悪戯行為に対する抑止力を高めるとともに、悪戯行為を早期に検知して迅速な対応が可能な球抜き装置を提供することができる。   Therefore, according to the ball removal device as described above, a ball removal device is provided that can increase the deterrence against the player's mischief and provide a quick response by detecting the act of mischief early. can do.

なお、位置検出センサ171は遮蔽部材250の高さ位置を検出可能な検出器であればよく、例示したリミットスイッチ形態の検出器の他、近接スイッチやフォトインタラプタ等の検出器を用いてもよい。また、以上説明した実施形態では、遮蔽部材を上下にスライド変位させることで球抜き操作孔130を遮蔽位置と挿通位置とに切り替える形態を例示したが、遮蔽部材の変移形態は上下方向のスライド変位に限るものではなく、例えば、球抜き操作孔に直交する面内での左右方向のスライド変位や上下方向の揺動変位、球抜き操作孔に直交する軸廻りの回動変位などであってもよい。   The position detection sensor 171 only needs to be a detector that can detect the height position of the shielding member 250. In addition to the illustrated limit switch type detector, a detector such as a proximity switch or a photo interrupter may be used. . Further, in the embodiment described above, the mode in which the ball removal operation hole 130 is switched between the shielding position and the insertion position by sliding the shielding member up and down is exemplified. However, the transition form of the shielding member is the sliding displacement in the vertical direction. For example, it may be a slide displacement in the left-right direction in the plane orthogonal to the ball removal operation hole, a rocking displacement in the vertical direction, a rotational displacement around the axis orthogonal to the ball removal operation hole, etc. Good.
