And when the contact part 43 contacts the stopper part 39, the opening-and-closing door 41 is hold | maintained in the attitude | position inclined slightly back from the horizontal state.
  As shown in FIG. 12, in this state, the hit ball 137 dropped on the opening / closing door 41 rolls backward according to the inclination direction of the opening / closing door 41, enters the ball passing port 50 through the guide portion 49, It passes through the ball passage detection sensor 52. The ball passage detection sensor 52 detects the passing of the hit ball, and the detection signal is sent to a control device (not shown) via the relay substrate 133, and the control device performs predetermined control based on the detection signal.
  Further, when the motor 104 is driven at a preset timing, the drive transmission disk 106 is rotated together with the rotary shaft 105, and as shown in FIGS. 15A and 15B, the protrusion 107 of the drive transmission disk 106 is moved. It slides along the slit hole 95L of the vertical portion 96L of the drive transmission arm 93L on the left side of the front, and the drive transmission arm 93L reciprocates linearly in the left-right direction.
  The reciprocating motion of the drive transmission arm 93L is transmitted to the slider 76L via the pinion 89L, and the pinion 89L moves in the left-right direction while rotating between the rack portion 87L of the slider guide 82L and the rack portion 78L of the slider 76L. Accordingly, the slider 76L slides in the left-right direction along the slider shaft 75L, and the ball receiving member 14L moves in the left-right direction.
  On the other hand, the reciprocating motion of the drive transmission arm 93L is transmitted to the right front drive transmission arm 93R via the pinion 92, and the pinion 92 is rotated between the rack portions 94L and 94R of the drive transmission arms 93L and 93R. As it moves in the left-right direction, the drive transmission arm 93R reciprocates in a direction different from the left-side drive transmission arm L. The reciprocating motion of the drive transmission arm 93R is transmitted to the slider 76R via the pinion 89R, and the pinion 89R rotates between the rack portion 87R of the slider guide 82R and the rack portion 78R of the slider 76R while moving in the left-right direction. The slider 76R slides in the left-right direction along the slider shaft 75R, and the ball receiving member 14R moves in a direction different from the ball receiving member 14L on the left side of the front.
  As described above, in the state where the left and right ball receiving members 14L and 14R are moving left and right in different directions, as shown in FIG. 13, the ball inlet 80L (or 14R) of the ball receiving member 14L (or 14R) is viewed from above. 80R), when the hit ball 137 enters the ball, the hit ball 137 is discharged from the ball outlet 81L (or 81R) to the game area 13 outside the ball receiving member 14L (or 14R), and is placed at the lower part of the game area. Enter the entrance 17 or 22.
  When the pinion 92 rotates to the left and right as described above, the detected object 122 swings to the left and right with the pinion support shaft 67 as a fulcrum as shown in FIGS. 16 (a), 16 (b), and 16 (c). The light shielding plate 125 moves between the light emitter 135 and the light receiver 136 of the sensor 130. As a result, the light shielding plate 125 blocks the light emitted from the light emitter 135 as shown in FIGS. 16 (a) and 16 (c), or enters the slit 134 as shown in FIG. 16 (b). Or make it transparent. When the light from the light emitter 135 passes through the slit 134 and reaches the light receiver 136, the sensor 130 detects the movement state of the ball receiving members 14L and 14R, and the detection signal is transmitted to the control circuit via the relay board 133. Based on this detection signal, the control device performs a predetermined control.
  At this time, since the detected object 122 is configured to operate in response to the movement of the ball receiving members 14L and 14R, the ball receiving members 14L and 14R are caused by abnormalities in the motor 104, the drive transmission mechanism, and the like. When the operation stops or abnormal operation is performed, the detection signal is not transmitted from the sensor 130 to the control device, or the detection signal is transmitted at an abnormal interval. As a result, the control device determines that an abnormality has occurred in the movement of the ball receiving members 14L and 14R, and for example, blinks a lamp (not shown) installed above the gaming machines 1 and 18. Report to the administrator.
  As described above, since the movement of the ball receiving members 14L and 14R in the left-right direction can always be detected by the ball receiving member movement detection mechanism including the detected object 122 and the sensor 130, the ball receiving members 14L, When an abnormality occurs in the movement of 14R, the administrator can detect the abnormality at an early stage, and can take quick action. Therefore, the damage or breakage of the gaming component 15 can be minimized, the durability of the gaming component 15 can be improved, and there is a risk of causing great inconvenience to the player or causing great damage to the gaming store. Absent.
  Further, as described above, the left and right ball receiving members 14L and 14R can be moved to the left and right and the game ball can be discharged in a certain direction of the game area by the game ball discharge mechanism. Even if the ball is fired with the same strength, the ball will enter a completely different entrance, so that the attractiveness of the game is improved, and the player's ability to adjust the game nail is not complicated. It becomes possible to change the pitch rate according to the skill. In addition, the right and left ball receiving members move left and right, and the game balls are discharged in the required direction by the game ball discharge mechanism, so that a novel visual effect can be given to the player. Interest can be sufficiently attracted, and further, it is possible to reduce labor costs for the game store by simplifying the adjustment operation of the game nail.
  Further, the ball receiving members 14L and 14R are dispersed on both sides of the central special entrance 30, and the motor 104 which is a driving source of the ball receiving members 14L and 14R includes a solenoid 56 which is a driving source of the special entrance 30 and the like. Since it arrange | positions so that it may not superimpose in the depth direction with sensor 130 grade | etc., Which is a ball | bowl receiving member movement detection mechanism, size reduction of the game component 15 can be achieved, and the installation possible range of the game component 15 can be expanded. In addition, since the ball receiving member movement detection mechanism is arranged behind the central special entrance 30, and the distance from the left and right ball receiving members 14L, 14R to the ball receiving member detection mechanism is equal, a detection error occurs. This makes it difficult to increase detection accuracy.
  The ball receiving member movement detection mechanism is not limited to the above-described configuration. For example, a pin-shaped light shielding portion (not shown) is formed on the detection object 122 instead of the light shielding plate 125, and the light shielding portion emits light. Various changes are possible, such as a configuration in which the movement of the ball receiving members 14L and 14R is detected when the light from the container 135 is blocked. Further, when the control device determines that an abnormality has occurred in the movement of the ball receiving members 14L and 14R based on the detection signal from the ball receiving member movement detection mechanism, as described above, Instead of blinking the lamp installed above, or in addition to blinking the lamp, it may be configured to be displayed on a remote monitoring device (not shown) in the management room. You may install in 1,18.
  Further, in the above embodiment, the game ball discharge mechanism is configured to discharge the game ball 137 in a certain direction, but this is merely an example, and is not intended to be limited to such a case. You may comprise so that the game ball 137 can be discharged | emitted in a required direction (namely, direction in a certain range with respect to the ball | bowl entrance 80).
  Specifically, for example, as shown in FIG. 17A, ball outlets 141 and 142 may be provided on both the left and right sides, and the hit balls 137 may be distributed in either the left or right direction.
  Further, as shown in FIG. 17 (b), a side wall 143 on one side is provided so as to be swingable about the support shaft 79 for ball receiving member, and the discharge angle of the hit ball 137 can be made variable. In addition, when the side wall 143 moves to the outside, the width of the ball entrance 144 is narrowed, the hitting ball is stopped at the ball entrance 144 for a moment, and the discharge timing of the hit ball 137 is variable. May be.
  Furthermore, as shown in FIG. 17C, a weight 146 is attached to the lower end of the side wall 145 on one side, and the side wall 145 is provided so as to be able to swing around the support shaft 79 for ball receiving member. The discharge speed and timing may be variable.
  In the case of the above-described modified example, the discharge direction, speed, and timing of the hit ball 137 can be changed in various ways, so that gameability and randomness can be further enhanced.
  In any of the above cases, the discharge direction of the hit ball 137 of the ball receiving member 14 may be either outside or inside of the ball receiving member 14, and the number of the ball receiving members 14 is set to two. Not limited to three or more.
  Furthermore, the ball receiving member moving means for moving the ball receiving members 14L, 14R in the left-right direction is not limited to the one described above. For example, as shown in FIG. A possible drive body 147 and a pair of left and right sliding bodies 148L and 148R that can slide back and forth in the horizontal direction are connected to each other by pivoting on links 149, and left and right ball receiving members are connected to the respective sliding bodies 148L and 148R. Each may be connected. In this case, as the driving body 147 rotates, the left and right ball receiving members reciprocate in different directions.
  Further, as shown in FIG. 18B, an arm 150 that connects a pair of left and right sliding bodies 148L and 148R and a driving body 151 that can be rotated in the left and right direction are engaged with each other, and the sliding bodies 148L and 148R are moved to the left and right. The ball receiving members may be connected to each other. In this case, as the driving body 150 rotates, both the left and right ball receiving members reciprocate in the same direction.
  Furthermore, although not shown, in the above-described embodiment, the drive transmission arms 93L and 93R may be connected and integrated, and in this case, the left and right ball receiving members reciprocate in the same direction.
  Further, the moving direction of the ball receiving member 14 is not limited to the left-right direction, and may be other directions such as an up-down direction, an oblique direction, or a combination of the left-right direction and the up-down direction.
  Furthermore, the mounting position of the motor 104 is not limited to the above-described position, and may be the front right side or the center.
  Moreover, although the case where the game component 15 according to the present invention is applied to the sparrow ball game machine 1 or the arrange ball game machine 18 has been described in the above embodiment, this is merely an example, and the present invention is a pachinko game machine.
