Description

本発明は、遊技機枠からファール球として遊技者に戻される戻球と遊技機枠から賞球や貸球として遊技者に払い出される払出球との経路を区分して、遊技者が戻球の戻りを適切に確認し得る遊技機の遊技機枠に関する。   The present invention divides the path between a return ball returned to the player as a foul ball from the gaming machine frame and a payout ball paid out to the player as a prize ball or a rental ball from the gaming machine frame. The present invention relates to a gaming machine frame of a gaming machine capable of appropriately confirming a return.

球を遊技媒体に使用する遊技機の遊技機枠では、遊技機枠からファール球として遊技者に戻される戻球と遊技機枠から賞球や貸球として遊技者に払い出される払出球とがある。戻球としてのファール球は、遊技機枠の球発射機構から遊技盤の遊技領域に向けて発射された球が遊技領域に到達することなく球発射機構の方向に戻った球であって、このファール球は、球発射機構に戻されることなく戻球取入口部で捕球されて遊技者に戻される。払出球としての賞球は、遊技者による遊技の結果の賞として、遊技機枠の球払出装置から遊技者に払い出される。払出球としての貸球は、遊技者に貸与する球として、遊技機枠の球払出装置から遊技者に払い出される。この戻球と払出球との経路を遊技機枠の内部で区分する構造としては、戻球取入口部から排出された戻球と球払出装置から排出された払出球との双方を遊技者の球として受ける球皿構造体に誘導する横樋の内部に、隔壁で、球払出装置から排出される払出球を球皿構造体に誘導する払出球通路と、戻球取入口部から排出された戻球を球皿構造体に誘導する戻球通路と区分したものが知られている。しかしながら、払出球通路および戻球通路は、横樋の球皿構造体への球出口で合流した構造であるため、戻球と払出球とが球皿構造体に同じ時期に排出された場合、戻球と払出球とが混合された状態で球皿構造体に排出され、遊技者が戻球を見分けることがでず戻球の戻りを確認することできないという欠点がある。また、球を遊技媒体に使用する遊技機の遊技機枠には、球皿構造体に上球受皿部と下球受皿部とを設け、上球受皿部が戻球や払出球で満杯になるのに伴い、戻球や払出球を下球受皿部に誘導して排出するものも知られている。しかしながら、戻球や払出球を上球受皿部に排出し、上球受皿部が戻球や払出球で満杯になったら、戻球や払出球を下球受皿部に排出する構造であるので、戻球と払出球とが球皿構造体に同じ時期に排出された場合、上記と同様、遊技者が戻球を目で見て戻球の戻りを確認することできないという欠点がある。

A gaming machine frame of a gaming machine that uses a ball as a gaming medium includes a return ball that is returned to the player as a foul ball from the gaming machine frame and a payout ball that is paid out to the player as a prize ball or a rental ball from the gaming machine frame. . A foul ball as a return ball is a ball that has been launched from the ball launch mechanism of the gaming machine frame toward the game area of the game board and has returned to the direction of the ball launch mechanism without reaching the game area. The foul ball is caught by the return ball inlet without being returned to the ball launching mechanism and returned to the player. The award ball as the payout ball is paid out to the player from the ball payout device in the gaming machine frame as an award as a result of the game by the player. The rented ball as the payout ball is paid out to the player from the ball payout device in the gaming machine frame as a lent to the player. As a structure for dividing the path between the return ball and the payout ball inside the gaming machine frame, both the return ball discharged from the return ball inlet portion and the payout ball discharged from the ball payout device are separated by the player. Inside the recumbent guide that leads to the ball tray structure received as a sphere, with a partition, a discharge ball passage that guides the discharge ball discharged from the ball discharge device to the ball tray structure, and the return ball discharged from the return ball inlet There is known one in which a sphere is separated from a return ball passage for guiding the sphere to a ball tray structure. However, since the payout ball passage and the return ball passage are structures that merge at the ball exit to the ball bowl structure on the side, if the return ball and the payout ball are discharged to the ball tray structure at the same time, There is a disadvantage that the ball and the payout ball are mixed and discharged to the ball tray structure, and the player cannot recognize the return ball and cannot confirm the return of the return ball. In addition, a gaming machine frame of a gaming machine that uses a ball as a game medium is provided with an upper ball receiving portion and a lower ball receiving portion in a ball tray structure, and the upper ball receiving portion is filled with a return ball or a payout ball. Along with this, there is also known one that guides and discharges the return ball or the payout ball to the lower ball tray. However, since the return ball and the payout ball are discharged to the upper ball tray, and when the upper ball tray is full of the return ball and the payout ball, the return ball and the payout ball are discharged to the lower ball tray. When the return ball and the payout ball are discharged to the ball tray structure at the same time, similarly to the above, there is a drawback that the player cannot visually confirm the return ball by looking at the return ball.

図1を参照し、遊技機枠1の可動枠3からファール球として遊技者に戻される戻球P1の戻球経路X1と遊技機枠から賞球や貸球として遊技者に払い出される払出球P2の払出球経路X2とについて説明する。戻球P1としてのファール球は、遊技機枠1の球発射機構45から球発射レール46および球発射通路164を経由して遊技盤150の遊技領域153に向けて発射された球が球発射通路164から遊技領域153に到達することなく球発射通路164を落下して球発射機構45の方向に戻った球であって、戻球経路X1で遊技者に戻されるように下球受皿部11に排出される。つまり、球発射通路164を落下した戻球P1は、球発射通路164から戻球取入口部47に取り込まれ、戻球取入口部47から戻球連絡口48を経由して可動枠3の裏側の戻球中継通路97に取り込まれ、戻球中継通路97から横樋56における前側の戻球通路57に取り込まれ、戻球通路57から戻球出口62と球皿構造体6における裏側の皿球受樋55および下球受皿部11の下球取入口16を経由して下球受皿部11に排出される。   Referring to FIG. 1, a return ball path X1 of a return ball P1 returned to the player as a foul ball from the movable frame 3 of the gaming machine frame 1 and a payout ball P2 paid out to the player as a prize ball or a rental ball from the gaming machine frame. The payout ball route X2 will be described. The foul ball as the return ball P1 is a ball fired from the ball launch mechanism 45 of the gaming machine frame 1 through the ball launch rail 46 and the ball launch passage 164 toward the game area 153 of the game board 150. A ball that has fallen from the ball launching passage 164 without returning to the game area 153 from 164 and returned in the direction of the ball launching mechanism 45, and is returned to the player in the lower ball tray 11 so as to be returned to the player through the return ball path X 1. Discharged. That is, the return ball P1 that has fallen through the ball launch passage 164 is taken into the return ball intake 47 from the ball launch passage 164, and the back side of the movable frame 3 from the return ball intake 47 through the return ball communication port 48. Is taken into the return ball relay passage 97, and is taken into the front return ball passage 57 in the horizontal cage 56 from the return ball relay passage 97, and from the return ball passage 57 to the return ball outlet 62 and the back side dish ball receiver in the ball tray structure 6. It is discharged to the lower ball tray 11 via the basket 55 and the lower ball inlet 16 of the lower ball tray 11.

遊技者に遊技の結果の賞として払い出される賞球や遊技者に貸与する球として払い出される貸球としての払出球P2は、可動枠3の裏側における球払出装置81から遊技者に払い出される球であって、戻球経路X1で遊技者に払い出されるように上球受皿部10に排出される。つまり、球払出装置81のタンク構造体82に貯蔵された球が、球払出装置81の球払出機構83の払出動作によって、払出球P2として、球払出装置81の縦樋84に払い出される。この縦樋84に払い出された払出球P2は、縦樋84から払出球中継通路96に取り込まれ、払出球中継通路96から横樋56の横球受台68に取り込まれ、横球受台68から横樋56における後側の払出球通路58に取り込まれ、払出球通路58から横樋56の払出球出口63および上球受皿部10の上球取入口13を経由して上球受皿部10に排出される。   A prize ball to be paid out as a prize as a result of a game to a player and a payout ball P2 to be paid out as a ball to be lent to a player are balls to be paid out to the player from the ball payout device 81 on the back side of the movable frame 3. Thus, the ball is discharged to the upper ball tray 10 so as to be paid out to the player through the return ball path X1. That is, the balls stored in the tank structure 82 of the ball paying device 81 are paid out to the vertical rod 84 of the ball paying device 81 as the paying ball P2 by the paying operation of the ball paying mechanism 83 of the ball paying device 81. The payout ball P2 paid out to the vertical rod 84 is taken into the payout ball relay passage 96 from the vertical rod 84, and taken into the horizontal ball receiving base 68 of the horizontal rod 56 from the payout ball relay passage 96. Is taken into the discharge ball passage 58 on the rear side of the horizontal basket 56 and discharged from the discharge ball path 58 to the upper ball tray 10 via the discharge ball outlet 63 of the horizontal basket 56 and the upper ball intake 13 of the upper ball tray 10. Is done.

このように、戻球P1が戻球経路X1を通過して下球受皿部11に排出され、払出球P2が払出球経路X2を通過して上球受皿部10に排出されるので、戻球P1および払出球P2が同じ時期に横樋56に排出されても、遊技者が下球受皿部11に排出された戻球P1を目で見て戻球P1の戻りを適切に確認することができるという利点がある。また、払出球P2は、上球受皿部10から上球取入口13と払出球出口63および横樋56の横球受台68を経由して払出球通路58まで貯まるのに伴い、払出球通路58から戻球通路57と戻球出口62と皿球受樋55および下球取入口16を経由して下球受皿部11に排出される。その状態においても、戻球P1は、戻球経路X1を通過して下球受皿部11に排出される。その後、戻球P1や払出球P2が下球受皿部11から下球取入口16を経由して皿球受樋55まで貯まるのに伴い、この貯まった球が皿球受樋55の満タン検出機構70を作動し、満タン検出機構70が電気的な満タン検出信号を制御装置に出力し、制御装置が球払出機構83の払出動作を停止し、球払出機構83による払出動作が停止する。よって、戻球P1や払出球P2が皿球受樋55に満タンとなるまで、遊技者が下球受皿部11に排出された戻球P1を目で見て戻球P1の戻りを適切に確認することができるという利点がある。   In this way, the return ball P1 passes through the return ball path X1 and is discharged to the lower ball receiving part 11, and the payout ball P2 passes through the payout ball path X2 and is discharged to the upper ball receiving part 10; Even if P1 and the payout ball P2 are discharged to the horizontal basket 56 at the same time, the player can appropriately confirm the return of the return ball P1 by visually observing the return ball P1 discharged to the lower ball tray 11. There is an advantage. As the payout ball P2 accumulates from the upper ball receiving tray 10 to the payout ball passage 58 via the upper ball intake port 13, the payout ball outlet 63, and the horizontal ball receiving base 68 of the horizontal bar 56, the payout ball passage 58 Is discharged to the lower ball tray 11 through the return ball passage 57, the return ball outlet 62, the dish ball receiver 55 and the lower ball inlet 16. Even in that state, the return ball P1 passes through the return ball path X1 and is discharged to the lower ball tray 11. Thereafter, as the return ball P1 and the payout ball P2 are accumulated from the lower ball tray 11 to the dish ball receiver 55 via the lower ball inlet 16, the accumulated balls are detected when the dish ball receiver 55 is full. The mechanism 70 is operated, the full tank detection mechanism 70 outputs an electrical full tank detection signal to the control device, the control device stops the payout operation of the ball payout mechanism 83, and the payout operation by the ball payout mechanism 83 stops. . Therefore, until the return ball P1 and the payout ball P2 are fully filled in the dish ball receiving bowl 55, the player looks at the return ball P1 discharged to the lower ball tray part 11 and appropriately returns the return ball P1. There is an advantage that it can be confirmed.

戻球通路57は、戻球取入口部47から排出された戻球を可動枠3の裏側から排出される球として戻球経路X1で球皿構造体6の下球取入口16に誘導するために、横樋56に設けられた通路である。払出球通路58は、球払出装置81から排出された払出球を可動枠3の裏側から排出される球として払出球経路X2で球皿構造体6の上球取入口13に誘導するために、横樋56に設けられた通路である。そして、横樋56には戻球通路57と払出球通路58とが隔壁59で区分され、戻球通路57の戻球P1を流下させる面が払出球通路58の払出球P2を流下させる面よりも下方に位置するように、隔壁59が段差として形成されているので、払出球P2が上球受皿部10から横樋56の払出球通路58まで満タンとなるのに伴い払出球通路58から戻球通路57に円滑に流れて戻球出口62と皿球受樋55および下球取入口16を経由して下球受皿部11に排出されるという利点がある。横樋56には球払出装置81から排出される払出球P2を払出球通路58に向けて誘導する横球受台68が着脱可能に取り付けられているので、横球受台68が払出球P2で汚損や損傷を受けた場合、横樋56に比べて形状の小さな横球受台68を交換すればよいので、横樋56を交換する場合よりも、経済的に有利であるという利点がある。   The return ball passage 57 guides the return ball discharged from the return ball intake portion 47 to the lower ball intake 16 of the ball tray structure 6 through the return ball path X1 as a ball discharged from the back side of the movable frame 3. In addition, the passage is provided in the reed 56. The payout ball passage 58 guides the payout ball discharged from the ball payout device 81 as a ball discharged from the back side of the movable frame 3 to the upper ball inlet 13 of the ball tray structure 6 through the payout ball path X2. This is a passage provided in the reed 56.

The gap between the rear edge of the lower end of the pushed-out working plate 71 and the front wall 55b of the back wall of the dish-ball receiving bowl 55 prevents the ball P from dropping from the gap to the back side through the through hole 73. And it is smaller than the diameter of one sphere P so that it may not be pinched | interposed into the said clearance gap. A protrusion 76 is provided on the back surface of the operating plate 71. The switch box 72 has a switch button 78 of the full tank detector 77 facing forward, the full tank detector 77 is fixed inside, and the through hole 73 is closed on the back surface of the back wall of the bowl receiving plate 55. It is attached with a set screw 79 from the back side of the plate ball receiving bowl 55.

図6のb図に示すように、横樋56が図3の横樋収納室49に嵌め込まれて可動枠3に取り付けられ、下球受皿部11から皿球受樋55および満タン検出機構70まで球Pが満杯となり、当該球Pが作動板71の前面をばね75のばね力に抗して裏側に押し、作動板71が軸74を中心として後側に回転し、突起76がスイッチ釦78を満タン検出器77のスイッチボディの方向に押す。これによって、満タン検出器77のスイッチボディの内部に設けられた可動接点がスイッチ釦78により固定接点と接触し、満タン検出器77がオン動作して電気的な満杯検出信号をスイッチボックス72の内部から外部に引き出された図外の配線で制御装置に出力し、満杯検出信号を受信した制御装置が球払出機構83のモータの駆動を停止し、球払出機構83による払出動作が停止する。球Pは、図5の戻球P1または払出球P2に相当する。   As shown in FIG. 6b, the recumbent cage 56 is fitted in the recumbent housing chamber 49 of FIG. 3 and attached to the movable frame 3, and the balls from the lower ball receiving plate 11 to the plate receiving plate 55 and the full tank detecting mechanism 70 are balls. P becomes full, the ball P pushes the front surface of the operating plate 71 against the spring force of the spring 75, the operating plate 71 rotates rearward about the shaft 74, and the protrusion 76 presses the switch button 78. Push in the direction of the switch body of the full detector 77. As a result, the movable contact provided inside the switch body of the full tank detector 77 is brought into contact with the fixed contact by the switch button 78, and the full tank detector 77 is turned on to send an electrical full detection signal to the switch box 72. The control device that has output the full detection signal through the unillustrated wiring drawn from the inside to the outside stops the driving of the motor of the ball payout mechanism 83, and the payout operation by the ball payout mechanism 83 stops. . The ball P corresponds to the return ball P1 or the payout ball P2 in FIG.

図7を参照し、変更樋85の構造について説明する。変更樋85は、払出球中継通路96と戻球中継通路97とを内部に備える。払出球中継通路96は、上部から右に曲がった後に下方に曲がる蛇行した通路であって、縦樋84から下方に排出された払出球P2を、払出球経路X2で、横樋56の方向に向けて排出するように、払出球P2の流れる方向を縦方向から右方向に変更する。払出球中継通路96の球入口98は、変更樋85の上面に設けられる。払出球中継通路96の球出口99は、変更樋85における払出球中継通路96の上面を形成する下面に設けられ、横樋56における横球受台68の球受溝68aの真上に位置する。よって、払出球中継通路96の球出口99から下方に向けて排出された払出球P2は、払出球経路X2で球受溝68aの上に落下し、球受溝68aから横樋56の払出球通路58に流れる。戻球中継通路97は、前側および右側に開口しかつ裏側と左側と上側および下側で閉じられた溝状の通路であって、図3に示す戻球取入口部47から前壁44の裏面の側に排出された戻球P1を可動枠3の裏側から排出される球として横樋56の戻球通路57に誘導する。戻球中継通路97の球入口100は、変更樋85の前面に設けられる。戻球中継通路97の球出口101は、変更樋85における払出球中継通路96の球出口99の形成された上面よりも下部で左側に位置して設けられる。   With reference to FIG. 7, the structure of the change rod 85 will be described. The change rod 85 includes a payout ball relay passage 96 and a return ball relay passage 97 therein. The payout ball relay passage 96 is a meandering passage that bends downward from the upper part to the right, and directs the payout ball P2 discharged downward from the vertical rod 84 in the direction of the horizontal basket 56 along the payout ball path X2. The direction in which the payout ball P2 flows is changed from the vertical direction to the right direction so as to be discharged. The ball entrance 98 of the payout ball relay passage 96 is provided on the upper surface of the change rod 85. The ball outlet 99 of the payout ball relay passage 96 is provided on the lower surface forming the upper surface of the payout ball relay passage 96 in the changing rod 85, and is positioned directly above the ball receiving groove 68 a of the horizontal ball receiving base 68 in the horizontal rod 56. Therefore, the payout ball P2 discharged downward from the ball outlet 99 of the payout ball relay passage 96 falls on the ball receiving groove 68a in the payout ball path X2, and the payout ball passage of the horizontal cage 56 from the ball receiving groove 68a. It flows to 58. The return ball relay passage 97 is a groove-like passage that opens on the front side and the right side and is closed on the back side, the left side, the upper side, and the lower side, and extends from the return ball intake port 47 shown in FIG. The return ball P1 discharged to the rear side is guided to the return ball passage 57 of the horizontal cage 56 as a ball discharged from the back side of the movable frame 3. The ball entrance 100 of the return ball relay passage 97 is provided in front of the change rod 85. The ball outlet 101 of the return ball relay passage 97 is provided on the left side below the upper surface of the change ball 85 where the ball outlet 99 of the payout ball relay passage 96 is formed.

図3を参照し、横樋56の可動枠3への取り付け方について説明する。パネル枠5および球皿構造体6が開けられた状態において、横樋56の戻球通路57および払出球通路58が上方に向けられ、横樋56の位置決め部67が可動枠3の方向に向けられ、横樋56が可動枠3の前側から横樋収納室49に挿入されるのに伴い、位置決め孔65aが位置決め部53に嵌め込まれ、位置決め部65が前壁44に接触する。このとき、位置決め部67も図4に示す位置決め部95に嵌め込まれる。そして、人が横樋56の固定具66を前側から後側に押すことによって、固定具66が横樋取付部52に嵌め込まれて結合し、固定具取付部64が前壁44に接触する。これによって、横樋56が横樋収納室49に配置されて可動枠3に取り付けられる。その後、パネル枠5および球皿構造体6が閉じられて可動枠3に支持される。   With reference to FIG. 3, a method of attaching the reed 56 to the movable frame 3 will be described. In a state where the panel frame 5 and the ball tray structure 6 are opened, the return ball passage 57 and the payout ball passage 58 of the horizontal basket 56 are directed upward, and the positioning portion 67 of the horizontal basket 56 is directed toward the movable frame 3. As the horizontal bar 56 is inserted into the horizontal bar storage chamber 49 from the front side of the movable frame 3, the positioning hole 65 a is fitted into the positioning part 53, and the positioning part 65 contacts the front wall 44. At this time, the positioning portion 67 is also fitted into the positioning portion 95 shown in FIG. Then, when a person pushes the fixing tool 66 of the recumbent cage 56 from the front side to the rear side, the fixing tool 66 is fitted and coupled to the recumbent attachment part 52, and the fixing tool attachment part 64 contacts the front wall 44. Thus, the recumbent cage 56 is disposed in the recumbent housing chamber 49 and attached to the movable frame 3. Thereafter, the panel frame 5 and the ball tray structure 6 are closed and supported by the movable frame 3.

図8乃至図11を参照し、横樋56が可動枠3に取り付けられ、パネル枠5および球皿構造体6が閉じられて可動枠3に支持された状態において、遊技機枠1の裏側から前側に排出される球の流れ方について説明する。図8において、球皿構造体6が閉じられて可動枠3に支持されることによって、球皿構造体6の上球取入口13が横樋56の払出球出口63と前後方向で対向する。図8には、図示を省略したが、球皿構造体6の皿球受樋55が横樋56の戻球出口62に連接され、上球取入口13と払出球出口63との間には、図3に示すシャッター50;54が昇降し得る隙間が形成され、下降したシャッター50;54の上面が払出球出口63から上球取入口13に球を流すように上球取入口13と払出球出口63との間に配置される。   With reference to FIGS. 8 to 11, in the state where the horizontal bar 56 is attached to the movable frame 3 and the panel frame 5 and the ball tray structure 6 are closed and supported by the movable frame 3, the back side of the gaming machine frame 1 is moved to the front side. The flow of the spheres discharged will be described. In FIG. 8, the ball tray structure 6 is closed and supported by the movable frame 3, so that the upper ball inlet 13 of the ball tray structure 6 faces the payout ball outlet 63 of the horizontal basket 56 in the front-rear direction. Although not shown in FIG. 8, the tray ball receiving rod 55 of the ball tray structure 6 is connected to the return ball outlet 62 of the horizontal cage 56, and between the upper ball intake port 13 and the dispensing ball outlet 63, A gap is formed in which the shutter 50; 54 shown in FIG. 3 can be moved up and down, and the upper surface of the lowered shutter 50; 54 flows from the payout ball outlet 63 to the upper ball intake 13 so that the upper ball intake port 13 and the payout ball pass. It is arranged between the outlet 63.

図9乃至図11に示すように、戻球取入口部47および戻球連絡口48が変更樋85の戻球中継通路97に前後方向で連接される。したがって、戻球取入口部47から排出された戻球は、戻球経路X1で、横樋56の戻球通路57から戻球出口62と皿球受樋55下球取入口16を経由して下球受皿部11に流出する。変更樋85の払出球中継通路96の球出口99が球皿構造体6の皿球受樋55の真上に配置される。したがって、図4の球払出機構83から縦樋84を経由して変更樋85に流入した球は、変更樋85の球出口99から払出球経路X2で、横樋56の払出球通路58から払出球出口63上球取入口13を経由して上球受皿部10に流出する。   As shown in FIGS. 9 to 11, the return ball inlet 47 and the return ball connection port 48 are connected to the return ball relay passage 97 of the changing rod 85 in the front-rear direction. Therefore, the return ball discharged from the return ball intake 47 is returned to the return ball path X1 from the return ball passage 57 of the horizontal cage 56 via the return ball outlet 62 and the dish ball receiving port 55 through the lower ball intake 16. It flows out to the ball tray 11. The ball outlet 99 of the dispensing ball relay passage 96 of the change rod 85 is disposed directly above the plate ball receiving rod 55 of the ball tray structure 6. Therefore, the ball that has flowed from the ball paying mechanism 83 of FIG. 4 into the changing rod 85 via the vertical rod 84 is discharged from the ball outlet path 58 of the horizontal rod 56 through the ball exit path X2 from the ball outlet 99 of the changing rod 85. It flows out to the upper ball receiving tray 10 through the outlet 63 upper ball intake 13.

After being inserted between them and sandwiched in the front-rear direction, the right side portion of the game board 150 is pushed rearward by the operator, and the lock operation portion 41 of the game main body lock member 40 is moved to the lock insertion hole 166 of the attachment portion 165. When the operator rotates the lock operation portion 41, for example, 90 degrees clockwise, inserted from the side and protruding forward, the lock operation portion 41 engages with the attachment portion 165 around the lock insertion hole 166, Technical panel 150 is attached to the movable frame 3. Further, after the horizontal bar 56 is attached to the horizontal bar storage portion 49 of the movable frame 3, the panel frame 5 and the ball tray structure 6 are closed and supported by the movable frame 3.

図3および図12を参照し、遊技の形態について説明する。図3において、遊技盤150および横樋56が可動枠3に取り付けられ、パネル枠5および球皿構造体6が閉じられて可動枠3に支持され後、遊技店の従業員が図12に示す電源装置170の電源スイッチを投入すると、電源装置170が供給された交流電源を直流電源に変換し、変換した直流電源を図12に示す発射払出制御装置171や図外の主制御装置あるいは図外の複合制御装置および図外の図柄制御装置などの制御装置に供給する。   The form of the game will be described with reference to FIGS. In FIG. 3, after the game board 150 and the reed 56 are attached to the movable frame 3, and the panel frame 5 and the ball tray structure 6 are closed and supported by the movable frame 3, the employees of the game shop receive the power supply shown in FIG. 12. When the power switch of the device 170 is turned on, the AC power supply supplied by the power supply device 170 is converted into a DC power supply, and the converted DC power supply is converted into the launch / dispensing control device 171 shown in FIG. Supplied to a control device such as a composite control device and an unillustrated symbol control device.

そして、遊技者が図3の球皿構造体6の上球受皿部10に球を入れて発射操作機構12を操作すると、発射払出制御装置171が球発射機構45を発射操作機構12から出力された操作量に応じた発射力で例えば1分間に1から100発未満までの所定数の間隔で駆動し、球発射機構45が上球受皿部10から球発射レール46に供給された球を1個ずつ遊技盤150の球発射通路164に向けて発射する。この球発射通路164に発射された球が、球発射通路164から球戻り防止弁161を押し開けて遊技領域153に到達した後に遊技領域153を流下する過程において、チャッカ154、一般入賞部品155、始動入賞部品156、可変入賞部品157などのいずれかの入賞部品に入賞し、それぞれの入賞に対応する賞球としての球が、球払出機構83から上球受皿部10に払い出される。   Then, when the player puts a ball into the upper ball receiving portion 10 of the ball tray structure 6 in FIG. 3 and operates the firing operation mechanism 12, the firing / dispensing control device 171 outputs the ball firing mechanism 45 from the firing operation mechanism 12. The ball launching mechanism 45 is driven at a predetermined number of intervals, for example, from 1 to less than 100 shots per minute with a firing force corresponding to the manipulated amount, and the ball fed to the ball launching rail 46 by the ball launching mechanism 45 is 1 Fire one by one toward the ball launching passage 164 of the game board 150. In the process in which the ball launched into the ball launch passage 164 pushes the ball return prevention valve 161 from the ball launch passage 164 to reach the game area 153 and then flows down the game area 153, the chucker 154, the general winning component 155, A winning component such as a start winning component 156 or a variable winning component 157 is won, and a ball as a winning ball corresponding to each winning is paid out from the ball paying mechanism 83 to the upper ball receiving portion 10.

一般入賞部品155、始動入賞部品156、可変入賞部品157に入賞した球は、遊技盤150の裏側に排出される。この遊技盤150の裏側に排出された球は、図12に示す球案内体168で下方の球機外排出樋43に排出される。一般入賞部品155、始動入賞部品156、可変入賞部品157などの入賞部品に入賞しないで遊技領域153の最下部に流れた球は、アウト口163に取り込まれて遊技盤150の裏側に排出される。この遊技盤150の裏側に排出された遊技の終了した球としての図12に示す遊技終了球P3は、遊技終了球経路X3で球案内体168から下方の球機外排出樋43に排出される。   The balls won in the general winning component 155, the starting winning component 156, and the variable winning component 157 are discharged to the back side of the game board 150. The ball discharged to the back side of the game board 150 is discharged to the lower ball machine discharge basket 43 by the ball guide 168 shown in FIG. A ball that has flowed to the bottom of the game area 153 without winning a prize component such as the general prize component 155, the start prize component 156, or the variable prize component 157 is taken into the out port 163 and discharged to the back side of the game board 150. . The game end ball P3 shown in FIG. 12 as the game-completed ball discharged to the back side of the game board 150 is discharged from the ball guide body 168 to the lower ball machine discharge rod 43 along the game end ball path X3. .

図12において、皿球受樋55が可動枠3に取り付けられた場合、横樋56の前側に位置する周壁61が可動枠3における遊技主体棚42よりも前側に突出し、前側に位置する周壁61と遊技主体棚42との間に隙間172が左右方向に細長く延びた形状に形成される。隙間172の前後方向の寸法は1個の球の直径よりも大きい。よって、遊技盤150の遊技領域153に球が存在し、前面パネル9が矢印X4で示す前側に開けられた場合、パネル枠5の前側への開放に伴い遊技領域153から落下した球を、隙間172から皿球受樋55に取り込むことができる。具体的には、遊技店の店員が、パネル枠5が閉じられている状態において、遊技領域153に球が存在するか存在しないかを前面パネル9の前側から目で確認する。そして、遊技領域153に球が存在する場合、遊技店の店員がパネル枠5を前側に開ける際、前面パネル9を横樋56における前側に位置する周壁61の真上に到達する地点で止める。これによって、パネル枠5が開けられる際の衝撃により遊技領域153からこぼれ出た球は、前面パネル9で下方に誘導されて隙間172から皿球受樋55に取り込まれる。したがって、パネル枠5が開けられる場合、遊技領域153から球が店内に散乱する不都合は解決することができる。   In FIG. 12, when the dish-ball receiving bowl 55 is attached to the movable frame 3, the peripheral wall 61 positioned on the front side of the horizontal basket 56 projects forward from the game main shelf 42 in the movable frame 3, and the peripheral wall 61 positioned on the front side A gap 172 is formed in an elongated shape in the left-right direction between the game main shelf 42. The dimension of the gap 172 in the front-rear direction is larger than the diameter of one sphere. Therefore, when a ball is present in the game area 153 of the game board 150 and the front panel 9 is opened to the front side indicated by the arrow X4, the ball dropped from the game area 153 with the opening of the panel frame 5 to the front side is It can be taken into the bowl receiving bowl 55 from 172. Specifically, a store clerk of the game store visually checks from the front side of the front panel 9 whether or not a ball is present in the game area 153 in a state where the panel frame 5 is closed. And when a ball exists in the game area 153, when the store clerk of the game store opens the panel frame 5 to the front side, the front panel 9 is stopped at a point where the front panel 9 reaches just above the peripheral wall 61 located on the front side of the reed 56. As a result, a ball spilled from the game area 153 due to an impact when the panel frame 5 is opened is guided downward by the front panel 9 and taken into the dish ball receiving bowl 55 from the gap 172. Therefore, when the panel frame 5 is opened, the disadvantage that the balls are scattered from the game area 153 into the store can be solved.

図13のa図を参照し、固定具66の構造について説明する。固定具66は、係合具111と操作具112とを備える。係合具111および操作具112は、互いに別々に形成される。係合具111は、前後方向に貫通する中心孔113を有する円筒本体114の一端部に受部115を備え、円筒本体114の他端部に掛止部116を備える。受部115は円筒本体114の一端部より軸心方向の一方の外側に開口する皿状である。受部115と掛止部116との間における円筒本体114の外周面は、受部115の外径と掛止部116の外径との双方よりも細い、くびれ部117として形成される。掛止部116は、割溝118によって、周方向に独立した複数の片持ち梁のような弾性片として形成される。割溝118は、掛止部116の他端部とくびれ部117との間を、軸心方向と直径方向とに切り欠かれる。掛止部116を構成する各弾性片の中心孔113を囲む内面には、突起119が、軸心方向に向けて突出する。   The structure of the fixture 66 will be described with reference to FIG. The fixing tool 66 includes an engagement tool 111 and an operation tool 112. The engaging tool 111 and the operating tool 112 are formed separately from each other. The engaging tool 111 includes a receiving portion 115 at one end portion of a cylindrical main body 114 having a central hole 113 penetrating in the front-rear direction, and a latching portion 116 at the other end portion of the cylindrical main body 114. The receiving portion 115 has a dish shape that opens from one end portion of the cylindrical main body 114 to one outer side in the axial direction. The outer peripheral surface of the cylindrical main body 114 between the receiving portion 115 and the hooking portion 116 is formed as a constricted portion 117 that is narrower than both the outer diameter of the receiving portion 115 and the outer diameter of the hooking portion 116. The latching portion 116 is formed as an elastic piece such as a plurality of cantilever beams independent in the circumferential direction by the split groove 118. The split groove 118 is notched in the axial direction and the diameter direction between the other end portion of the latching portion 116 and the constricted portion 117. A protrusion 119 protrudes in the axial direction on the inner surface surrounding the center hole 113 of each elastic piece constituting the latching portion 116.

操作具112は、棒本体120の一端部に鍔121とくびれ部122と摘み123とを備え、棒本体120の他端部に係合溝124を備える。棒本体120は、受部115の方向から中心孔113に挿入されるとともに、中心孔113に挿入された場合に突起119を中心孔113の径方向外側に押して掛止部116を押し広げる、太さである。鍔121は、棒本体120の外径よりも大きな外径であって、受部115における周壁で囲まれた内部に取り込まれる大きさである。くびれ部122は、鍔121から同軸状に突出し、鍔121と摘み123との双方よりも細い。摘み123は、摘み123から同軸状に突出し、くびれ部122と鍔121との双方よりも太い円盤形状である。   The operation tool 112 includes a rod 121, a constricted portion 122, and a knob 123 at one end of the rod main body 120, and an engagement groove 124 at the other end of the rod main body 120. The rod body 120 is inserted into the center hole 113 from the direction of the receiving portion 115, and when inserted into the center hole 113, the rod body 120 pushes the protrusion 119 outward in the radial direction of the center hole 113 to widen the latching portion 116. That's it. The flange 121 has an outer diameter larger than the outer diameter of the rod body 120 and is sized to be taken into the inside of the receiving portion 115 surrounded by the peripheral wall. The constricted portion 122 protrudes coaxially from the collar 121 and is thinner than both the collar 121 and the knob 123. The knob 123 protrudes coaxially from the knob 123 and has a disk shape that is thicker than both the constricted portion 122 and the hook 121.

図13のb図を参照し、固定具66が図3の固定具取付部64に取り付けられた構造について説明する。固定具取付部64には取付孔126が形成される。そして、係合具111のくびれ部117が、固定具取付部64の前側から取付孔126に嵌め込まれることによって、受部115と掛止部116とが、取付孔126の周囲における固定具取付部64を挟む格好となり、係合具111が、固定具取付部64に取り付けられ、掛止部116が固定具取付部64の前面127より突出する。そして、操作具112の棒本体120が、係合具111の受部115の方向から中心孔113に挿入されることによって、係合溝124が、突起119に嵌め込まれた格好となり、操作具112が、係合具111に取り付けられる。これによって、固定具66が固定具取付部64に取り付けられる。   A structure in which the fixture 66 is attached to the fixture attachment portion 64 of FIG. 3 will be described with reference to FIG. An attachment hole 126 is formed in the fixture attachment portion 64. Then, the constricted portion 117 of the engaging tool 111 is fitted into the mounting hole 126 from the front side of the fixing device mounting portion 64, so that the receiving portion 115 and the latching portion 116 are fixed to the fixing device mounting portion around the mounting hole 126. 64, the engagement tool 111 is attached to the fixture attachment portion 64, and the latching portion 116 protrudes from the front surface 127 of the fixture attachment portion 64. Then, the rod main body 120 of the operation tool 112 is inserted into the center hole 113 from the direction of the receiving portion 115 of the engagement tool 111, so that the engagement groove 124 is fitted into the protrusion 119, and the operation tool 112. Is attached to the engagement tool 111. As a result, the fixture 66 is attached to the fixture attachment portion 64.

図14のa図を参照し、固定具取付部64に装着された固定具66が図3の横樋取付部52に取り付けられる構造について説明する。横樋取付部52には横樋取付部52の前面129に開口した筒状の取付孔130が形成される。そして、固定具取付部64に取り付けられた固定具66の固定具取付部64より裏側に突出した先端部としての係合具111における掛止部116が、横樋取付部52の前側から取付孔130の内部に挿入され、係合具111の周囲における固定具取付部64の裏面128が取付孔130の周囲における横樋取付部52の前面129に接触される。   A structure in which the fixture 66 attached to the fixture attachment portion 64 is attached to the recumbent attachment portion 52 of FIG. 3 will be described with reference to FIG. The recumbent attachment part 52 is formed with a cylindrical attachment hole 130 opened in the front surface 129 of the recumbent attachment part 52. And the latching | locking part 116 in the engaging tool 111 as a front-end | tip part protruded from the fixing tool attaching part 64 of the fixing tool 66 attached to the fixing tool attaching part 64 from the front side of the recumbent attachment part 52 to the attachment hole 130. And the back surface 128 of the fixture attachment portion 64 around the engagement tool 111 is brought into contact with the front surface 129 of the recumbent attachment portion 52 around the attachment hole 130.

次に、図14のb図に示すように、人が、操作具112の摘み123を矢印X5で示す後側に押すことによって、上記突起119と係合溝124との嵌まり合いが解除され、棒本体120が中心孔113の内部を奥に進入する。これに伴い、棒本体120の外周面が、突起119を中心孔113の径方向外側に押して、掛止部116を押し広げる。この中心孔113の径方向外側に押し広げられた掛止部116が、取付孔130を径方向外側に突っ張るように、取付孔130に接触する。これによって、固定具66が取付孔130に押し込まれた形態となり、固定具取付部64が、横樋取付部52に、固定具66で、取り付けられる。   Next, as shown in FIG. 14b, when the person pushes the knob 123 of the operation tool 112 to the rear side indicated by the arrow X5, the fitting between the protrusion 119 and the engagement groove 124 is released. The rod body 120 enters the inside of the center hole 113 to the back. Along with this, the outer peripheral surface of the rod main body 120 pushes the protrusion 119 outward in the radial direction of the center hole 113, and spreads the hooking portion 116. The latching portion 116 that is spread outward in the radial direction of the center hole 113 contacts the mounting hole 130 so as to stretch the mounting hole 130 outward in the radial direction. As a result, the fixture 66 is pushed into the attachment hole 130, and the fixture attachment portion 64 is attached to the recumbent attachment portion 52 with the fixture 66.

このように固定具取付部64が、横樋取付部52に、固定具66で、取り付けられた状態において、人が、操作具112の摘み123を矢印X6で示す前側に引くことによって、棒本体120が中心孔113の奥から手前に後退する。これに伴い、上記棒本体120の外周面による突起119に対する中心孔113の径方向外側への押し力が弱くなり、掛止部116が自身の弾性によって径方向内側に復帰し、突起119が係合溝124に嵌まり込み、掛止部116が取付孔130から離れ、図14のa図の状態になる。これによって、固定具66と取付孔130との係合が解除された形態となり、人が固定具取付部64を支持して横樋取付部52から離れる方向に移動すると、固定具66の装着されたままの固定具取付部64が横樋取付部52から取り外される。   When the fixture attachment portion 64 is attached to the recumbent attachment portion 52 with the fixture 66 in this manner, the person pulls the knob 123 of the operation tool 112 to the front side indicated by the arrow X6, thereby the rod main body 120. Retracts from the back of the center hole 113 to the front. Along with this, the pushing force of the central hole 113 radially outward of the protrusion 119 by the outer peripheral surface of the rod main body 120 becomes weak, the latching portion 116 returns to the radially inner side by its own elasticity, and the protrusion 119 is engaged. 14 is fitted into the mating groove 124, the latching portion 116 is separated from the mounting hole 130, and the state shown in FIG. As a result, the engagement between the fixture 66 and the attachment hole 130 is released, and when the person moves in a direction away from the recumbent attachment portion 52 while supporting the fixture attachment portion 64, the fixture 66 is attached. The remaining fixture attachment part 64 is removed from the recumbent attachment part 52.

要するに、図3の横樋56を前後方向に操作することで可動枠3に固定するための固定具66が横樋56に設けられ、横樋56が可動枠3に可動枠3の前側から取り外すことができるので、横樋56の可動枠3への着脱を容易に行うことができるという利点がある。   In short, a fixing tool 66 for fixing to the movable frame 3 by operating the horizontal plane 56 in FIG. 3 in the front-rear direction is provided on the horizontal plane 56, and the horizontal plane 56 can be removed from the front side of the movable frame 3. Therefore, there is an advantage that the horizontal rail 56 can be easily attached to and detached from the movable frame 3.

図15は横樋56の別の形態を示す。図15において、横球受台68を交換することはできなくなるが、横球受台68が横樋56に一体に設けられる。この場合、横球受台68と横樋56とを互いに別体として形成し、横球受台68を横樋56に接着剤や超音波振動による接合などの手法で結合して一体化したり、または、横球受台68を横樋56とを成形する材料を成形型に注入することによって一体化したりすればよい。   FIG. 15 shows another form of the recumbent cage 56. In FIG. 15, it is impossible to replace the horizontal ball support 68, but the horizontal ball support 68 is provided integrally with the horizontal bar 56. In this case, the horizontal ball holder 68 and the horizontal bar 56 are formed as separate bodies, and the horizontal ball holder 68 is combined and integrated with the horizontal bar 56 by a technique such as bonding using an adhesive or ultrasonic vibration, or What is necessary is just to integrate the horizontal ball | bowl receiving stand 68 by inject | pouring the material which shape | molds the horizontal rod 56 into a shaping | molding die.

図16は横樋56の別の形態を示す。図16において、横球受台68に置換し、戻球通路57と払出球通路58とを仕切る仕切壁131が横樋56に設けられる。仕切壁131は、横樋56の隔壁59に沿い底壁60から上方に突出するが、前後方向部分59aには存在しない形態である。仕切壁131は、横樋56に、交換不能に一体に設けてもよく、交換可能に取り付けてもよい。   FIG. 16 shows another form of the recumbent cage 56. In FIG. 16, a partition wall 131 that partitions the return ball path 57 and the payout ball path 58 is provided on the horizontal bar 56 in place of the horizontal ball support 68. The partition wall 131 protrudes upward from the bottom wall 60 along the partition wall 59 of the horizontal bar 56, but does not exist in the front-rear direction portion 59a. The partition wall 131 may be integrally provided on the horizontal bar 56 so as not to be replaceable, or may be attached so as to be replaceable.

満タン検出機構70を皿球受樋55に設けることに代えて、横樋56の払出球通路58に満タン検出機構70を戻球出口62の近い所に位置するように設けてもよい。この場合、貫通孔73は皿球受樋55に形成されず横樋56に形成される。満タン検出機構70を戻球出口62の近い所に位置するように設けるよりも、最良の形態のように、満タン検出機構70を皿球受樋55に設けた方が、下球受皿部から満タン検出機構70まで戻球または払出球が満タンとなるまで、遊技者が戻球を目で見て良好に確認することができるという利点がある。   Instead of providing the full tank detection mechanism 70 in the dish ball receiving rod 55, the full tank detection mechanism 70 may be provided in the payout ball passage 58 of the horizontal basket 56 so as to be positioned near the return ball outlet 62. In this case, the through hole 73 is not formed in the dish ball receiving bowl 55 but is formed in the horizontal bowl 56. Rather than providing the full tank detection mechanism 70 so as to be located near the return ball outlet 62, the lower ball tray portion is provided with the full tank detection mechanism 70 in the dish ball receiving bowl 55 as in the best mode. There is an advantage that the player can visually check the return ball well until the return ball or the payout ball becomes full from the full to the full tank detection mechanism 70.
