In order to attach the guide member 50 having such a configuration to the game area 5, the positioning boss 57 of the mounting base 51 is fitted into the positioning hole 63 formed in the lower part of the decorative member 45, and the locking pin 58 is The game board main body 2 is fitted into a locking hole 64 provided in the game board main body 2, and in this fitting state, the game board main body 2 is fixed to the game board main body 2 through a fixing member (not shown) such as a screw. Then, the mounting base 51 (that is, the guide member 50) is disposed in the game area 5 in a state of straddling the boundary between the game board main body 2 and the decorative frame body 18, and the guide bottom portion 52, the ball contact portion 53, and the guide wall portion 54 are provided. As shown in FIGS. 4 and 5C, the surface of the decorative member 45 that is disposed in front of the decorative frame 18 and connected to the upper end of the mounting base 51 is the guide wall portion 54 of the guide member 50. of formed on the back surface opposite to a position, ing a base wall portion which forms a rear side wall of the guide member 50. In this way, a component capable of guiding the game ball to the start winning opening 8 can be realized with a simple structure, and can be attached to the game area 5 (or the center case 6) with a simple operation. Then, in order to be able to guide the game ball to the start winning opening 8, it is not necessary to separately attach a plurality of members, for example, many obstacle nails, to the game area 5. Therefore, it is possible to improve the manufacturing efficiency of the game board 1, and consequently the manufacturing efficiency of the pachinko gaming machine. In addition, a decrease in the strength of the game board body 2 can be suppressed as compared with the case where many obstacle nails are planted in close proximity.
  Further, the guide member 50 can be disposed in the game area 5 as a part of the center case 6. Therefore, the guide member 50 can also function as a part for decorating the center case 6. And even if the center case 6 is enlarged and opened up and down, the inconvenience that the place where the guide member 50 is disposed is hardly generated. As a result, it is possible to suppress the behavior of the game ball flowing down the game area 5 from becoming monotonous.
  Further, as shown in FIG. 6, the gaming board 1 has a plurality of obstacle nails 13 along the extension line of the guiding bottom portion 52 on the left and right sides of the guiding member 50 in the gaming area 5 (that is, to the start winning opening 8). The obstacle nail row 67 is formed by being lined up. Then, by the obstacle nail row 67 (upstream side nail row 67a) planted on the opposite side of the starting winning port 8 (left side of the guide member 50 in FIG. 6) across the guide member 50, the game area 5 The game ball flowing down between the center case 6 and the guide rail 3 is configured to be easily introduced into the guide member 50. Also, the game ball that has been guided to the guide member 50 and started to flow down by the obstacle nail row 67 (downstream side nail row 67b) planted on the start winning opening 8 side (the right side of the guide member 50 in FIG. 6) is started. It is configured to easily flow down to the vicinity of the winning opening 8. Further, a gap slightly wider than the diameter of the game ball is set between the downstream nail row 67b and the guide member 50, so that the game ball flowing down from the guide member 50 does not reach the downstream nail row 67b. It is comprised so that it can flow down.
  A plurality of life nails 70 (four in FIG. 6) are formed in an arc shape around the upper portion of the start winning opening 8 from the position directly above the starting winning opening 8 to the guide member 50 side (upper left in FIG. 6). They are planted in a lined state, and the interval between the life nails 70 is set to be slightly wider than the diameter of the game ball. A gap wider than the diameter of the game ball is set between the life nail 70 closest to the downstream nail row 67b and the downstream nail row 67b, and the game ball flowing down from the downstream nail row 67b is It is configured to be able to flow downward just before reaching the nail 70.
  And between the decoration member 45 and the fall prevention protrusion 32 on the guide member 50 side (left side in FIG. 6), the ball passage portion 71 is recessed by one step from the upper edges of the decoration member 45 and the fall prevention protrusion 32. Forming. Further, the ball passage portion 71 is set behind the guidance bottom portion 52 toward the downstream (rightward in FIG. 6), and the game ball guided by the guidance member 50 moves to the ball rolling portion 23 via the ball passage portion 71. It is configured to be able to.
  In a pachinko gaming machine equipped with the gaming board 1 having such a configuration, when a game ball is launched from a launching device (not shown), the game ball is guided along the guide rail 3 and is placed above the game area 5. After reaching, the game area 5 flows down while changing the direction by the obstacle nail 13 or the windmill. When this game ball wins the general winning opening 9, the start winning opening 8, and the passing gate 47, a predetermined winning ball is obtained. Collected.
  Further, when the game ball flows down the side (left side) of the center case 6 and enters the ball lead-out path 25, the game ball flows down from the exit of the ball lead-out path 25 to the ball rolling portion 23, and this flow down The ball rolling part 23 rolls toward the central part in the left-right direction by the force. Then, when the game ball reaches the front guide unit 31 while the momentum of the game ball swinging left and right on the ball rolling unit 23 is weakened, the game ball moves forward while moving to the left or right. It moves down and flows down to the game area 5 below. Note that the game ball that has flowed downward from the front guide portion 31 at the center easily falls between the life nails 70 and immediately above the start winning opening 8 and easily wins the starting winning opening 8. Further, the game ball that has flowed downward from the left and right front guide portions 31 easily falls directly above the open / close member 8a through the life nail 70, and is guided to the open / close member 8a to start a winning prize opening. Easy to win 8
  Further, when the game ball flows down the side (left side) of the center case 6 and wins the passing gate 47 or flows down without passing through the passing gate 47 and falls onto the upstream nail row 67a. The game ball rolls along the upstream nail row 67a and reaches the guide member 50. Then, it flows down along the guide bottom portion 52 and the guide wall portion 54 and rolls toward the start winning port 8. At this time, since a plurality of ball contact portions 53 protrude from the guide bottom portion 52, the ball contact portion 53 contacts (impacts) the lower end bottom portion of the game ball. As a result, the guide member 50 can guide the game ball while bouncing it many times. Therefore, the game board 1 can guide the game ball to the start winning opening 8 while performing a complicated behavior by the guide member 50, and can enhance the interest of the game. In addition, the guide wall portion 54 can prevent the game ball from moving forward of the guide member 50, and it is easier to guide the game ball to the start winning opening 8. Furthermore, the behavior of the game ball that abuts on the ball abutment portion 53 can be visually recognized from the front through the opening window portion 61, and the interest of the game can be further enhanced. In the maintenance of the pachinko gaming machine, it is preferable that the damaged state of the ball contact portion 53 can be visually recognized from the front through the opening window portion 61 and the guide member 50 can be easily inspected. And the dust and the foreign material collected on the guidance bottom part can be easily swept out from the opening window part, and it is easy to clean the guidance member.
  Further, since the upper surface of the ball contact portion 53 is inclined downward toward the rear decorative frame 18 (board surface side), the game ball bounced against the ball contact portion 53 flies backward. easy. When the game ball flowing down on the guide member 50 bounces in front of the ball passage portion 71, the game ball easily flies backward while moving in the lateral direction due to the downward force and easily passes through the ball passage portion 71. As a result, the guide member 50 can cause the game ball bounced in contact with the ball contact portion 53 to enter the ball rolling portion 23 and roll in the left-right direction. Therefore, the game ball guided by the guide member 50 can be moved with a more complicated behavior, and the interest of the game can be further enhanced.
  The game ball that has reached the downstream end of the guiding bottom 52 without jumping into the ball rolling portion 23 reaches the downstream nail row 67b and is guided to the start winning opening 8 if the downflow force is strong. On the other hand, if the downflow force is weak, it flows down to the lower game area 5 from the gap set between the guide member 50 and the downstream side nail row 67b before reaching the downstream side nail row 67b. Therefore, the player can enjoy watching whether or not the game ball that has flowed down toward the start winning port 8 by the guide member 50 reaches the start winning port 8.
  In addition, the guide member 50 may extend only the ball contact portion 53 forward from the upper edge portion of the mounting base 51 without providing the guide bottom portion 52, and may form a through hole between the ball contact portions 53. . If comprised in this way, the side part of the ball | bowl contact part 53 will not be supported, but the center part of the front-back direction of the ball | bowl contact part 53, ie, the part which a game ball will contact | abut easily, will bend up and down easily. Therefore, it is possible to make it easy to jump off the game ball that is in contact with the ball contact portion 53, and it is possible to further improve the interest of the game by making the game ball more bounced.
  By the way, in the said embodiment, although the contact space | interval A of the ball | bowl contact part 53 was set to equal intervals, this invention is not limited to this, You may set to a different space | interval. For example, in the second embodiment shown in FIG. 7, the mounting base 51 and the guide wall portion 54 are located in the vicinity of the start winning opening 8, more specifically, above the starting winning opening 8 and below the left front guide section 31. It is extended. Further, a ball contact portion 53 is disposed between the extended mounting base 51 and the guide wall portion 54 so as to extend forward from the mounting base 51, and the ball contact portion 53 near the start winning port 8 is abutted. The contact interval B is set to a width wider than the contact interval A of the ball contact portion 53 on the upstream side (left side in FIG. 7), specifically, a width wider than the diameter of the game ball. Furthermore, a through hole 73 is opened between the ball contact portions 53 of the extended portion. Thus, when the contact interval of the ball contact portion 53 is varied depending on the location, it is possible to prevent the game ball guided by the guide member 50 from becoming monotonous. In addition, since a through hole 73 through which a game ball can pass is provided between some of the ball contact portions 53, the game ball can pass between the ball contact portions 53 and flow down to the lower game area 5. . Therefore, the game ball can be made to perform more complicated behavior, and the interest of the game can be further enhanced.
  In the second embodiment, the three contact intervals B near the start winning opening 8 are set wider than the other contact intervals A. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and at least one contact interval is set. It may be set wider than other contact intervals. Further, a wide contact interval may be set on the upstream side of the guide member 50.
  By the way, although the guide member 50 of the said embodiment provided the ball | bowl contact part 53 which consists of a protrusion on the upper surface of the induction | guidance | derivation bottom part 52, this invention is not limited to this. For example, the guide member 80 in the third embodiment shown in FIG. 8 is not provided with a guide bottom portion and a guide wall portion, and is combed with a plurality of ball contact portions 83 extending forward from the upper edge portion of the mounting base 81. They are arranged in a tooth shape (see FIGS. 8A and 8B). The ball contact portion 83 includes a strip-shaped contact base 83a connected to the mounting base 81, an arc-shaped flexible portion 83b extending upward from the tip (front end) of the contact base 83a, The flexible portion 83b extends in a cantilever state inclined downward from the upper end of the flexible portion 83b, and is formed of a strip-shaped contact action portion 83c arranged in a state of being spaced upward from the contact base 83a. It is formed in a U shape. If the game ball hits the contact action portion 83c of the ball contact portion 83 having such a configuration from above, the flexible portion 83b is bent by the impact force received from the game ball and the contact action portion 83c is moved upward. A biasing force to be moved can be generated. The game ball that has come into contact with the abutting action portion 83c by this urging force can be bounced upward. Therefore, it is possible to make it easier to play the game ball guided by the guide member 80, and it is possible to further improve the interest of the game.
  In addition, the guide members 50 and 80 of each embodiment described above may be disposed in the game area 5, and therefore may be disposed in a position away from the center case 6. In addition, the winning opening to which the game balls guided by the guide members 50 and 80 are directed is not limited to the start winning opening 8, and any winning opening (winning apparatus) may be used as long as the game balls can be won. Good. For example, a winning opening for collecting game balls may be used, or a passing gate for determining that winning is achieved by passing game balls may be used.
  In the embodiment described above, the pachinko gaming machine 1 which is a typical gaming machine has been described as an example. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and the game area is provided with a winning opening through which a gaming ball can be won. Any gaming machine may be used as long as it is a gaming machine. For example, it may be a gaming machine such as a sealed ball type pachinko machine, an arrangement ball type game machine, or a sparrow ball type game machine that circulates a game ball sealed inside.
  It should be understood that the above-described embodiment is illustrative in all respects and not restrictive. The present invention is not limited to the above description, but is defined by the scope of the claims, and includes all modifications within the scope and meaning equivalent to the scope of the claims.
