Description

  The present invention relates to a gaming machine in which an opening / closing member is opened and closed by a shutter operating means.

  Conventionally, a game machine called a pachinko machine has a game ball sent out one by one on a launching rail by a ball feeding device (not shown), and the sent out game ball is launched into the hitting ball launching device to be an outer rail of the guide rail of the game board. The game balls are guided to the game area, and the game balls guided to the game area win a prize opening to pay out a predetermined number of prize balls.

  In general pachinko machines that have been put into practical use in recent years, on a display such as a liquid crystal display (hereinafter referred to as image display means), a pattern called identification information is displayed in a variety of interesting ways in a predetermined time. The symbol is stopped later, and when the stopped symbol is in a predetermined mode (for example, “777”), a transition is made to a special gaming state that is advantageous to the player. Here, such a type of pachinko machine has a special game state when a random number lottery is performed internally based on the fact that a game ball has flowed into a winning port called a starting winning port, and the lottery is won. Adopting a mechanism to shift to. Since this mechanism is common to this type of pachinko machine, in order to differentiate it from other types, how to devise the design and how to give it a high level of interest The focus is on that.

  In response to this, in recent years, as described in Patent Document 1, for example, a pair of left and right opening / closing members that can move in the left-right direction is disposed on the front side of the image display means (symbol display device). In conjunction with the production of a pachinko machine, a shutter device for a gaming machine is put into practical use by moving the opening and closing member in the left-right direction by means of a shutter operating means to cause the pair of left and right opening and closing members to perform a laterally opening and closing operation to enhance the production effect. ing. In recent years, pachinko machines have become larger in image display means and have been equipped with a large number of effects. For this reason, it is necessary to keep the space where the shutter operating means is provided as small as possible, and the shutter operating means is mainly driven by driving force applied to either the upper side or the lower side of the pair of left and right opening / closing members. It has become.

  The long hit game control means 740, the short hit game control means 741, the high probability game control means 742, and the short time game control means 743 are programs for controlling the progress of the game when winning the big hit. In the present embodiment, a plurality of jackpot types are provided, and when the jackpot is won, a jackpot type is further determined, and based on this determination, the CPU 201a operates each program to generate each jackpot. To control the progress of the game. On the other hand, the normal game control means 744 is a program for controlling the progress of the game in a normal game state where the jackpot is not won, that is, in the same state as the initial state when the game is started.

  As a result of the jackpot lottery when the game ball enters the first start port 105 or the second start port 120 as a result of the jackpot lottery, the long hit game control means 740 Control the progress of the game. The “long hit game” in the present embodiment is a kind of jackpot game, and is a game in which a round game in which the open / close door 91 is opened and closed is performed a total of 15 times.

  The opening / closing operation of the opening / closing door 91 is performed by a big prize opening / closing solenoid 97. Specifically, when the CPU 201a operates the long hit game control means 740 to control the long hit game, first, the round winning game is started by energizing the large winning opening / closing solenoid 97 and opening the open / close door 91. The When the big prize opening detection unit 224 detects that a predetermined number (9) of game balls have entered the big prize opening 93, the CPU 201a activates the long hit game control means 740 to supply the big prize opening opening / closing solenoid 97 to the prize winning opening / closing solenoid 97. The energization is stopped and the round game ends.

  Even if a predetermined number of game balls have not entered the big prize opening 93, energization to the big prize opening / closing solenoid 97 is stopped when a predetermined time (30 seconds) elapses after the opening / closing door 91 is opened. When either of these two conditions is satisfied, energization to the big winning opening / closing solenoid 97 is stopped, the round game is ended, and the open / close door 91 is closed.

  When a predetermined time (2 seconds) elapses after the opening / closing door 91 is closed, the CPU 201a operates the long hit game control means 740 to energize the special winning opening opening / closing solenoid 97 again and open the opening / closing door 91. . Thereby, the second round game is started. In this manner, the opening / closing operation of the open / close door 91 is repeatedly performed for 15 rounds. When a game ball enters the large winning opening 93, the payout unit 291 pays out a prize ball corresponding to the entered ball. Thus, in the long hit game, the player can acquire a large amount of prize balls.

  The short hit game control means 741 receives a short hit game when a right hit is executed as a result of a big hit lottery triggered by a game ball entering the first start port 105 or the second start port 120. Control the progress of the hit game. The “short hit game” in the present embodiment is a kind of big hit game, and is a game in which the open / close door 91 opens and closes 15 times as in the above “long hit game” and the round game is executed 15 times. However, in the “short hit game”, the maximum opening time of the open / close door 91 is set shorter than the “long hit game”.

  The opening / closing operation in the “short hit game” state is performed with respect to the opening / closing door 91 by the big prize opening / closing solenoid 97. Specifically, when the CPU 201a activates the short hit game control means 741 to control the short win game, first, the round game is started by energizing the big prize opening / closing solenoid 97 to open the open / close door 91. The However, in the “short win game” state, the energization to the winning prize opening / closing solenoid 97 is stopped for a moment (0.1 seconds), and then the energization control is repeated 15 times at a predetermined interval. . Therefore, the time during which the open / close door 91 is in the open state is extremely short compared to the long win game, and the possibility that the game ball enters the big winning opening 93 is extremely low as compared to the long win game.

  In the “short win game”, the open / close door 91 returns to the closed state in a short time, so that it is difficult for a large number of game balls to enter the big prize opening 93. In this way, the “short win game” is aimed at improving the playability and the interest rather than paying the player a prize ball. However, even in the “short win game”, when a game ball enters the big winning opening 93, a winning ball corresponding to the winning game is paid out.

  The high-probability game control means 742 controls the game to a high-probability game state in which the game is progressed in a state where the winning probability of the big hit (including long win and short win) is higher than that in the normal game state. The high probability game state is executed after the long hit game or the short hit game is completed.

  Specifically, when a game ball enters the first start opening 105 or the second start opening 120, the first special symbol lottery means 700 or the second special symbol lottery means 720 acquires a winning random number. Then, the first random number determination unit 703 or the second random number determination unit 723 determines the acquired winning random number based on a predetermined table. At this time, in a normal gaming state (including a short-time gaming state that is not a high-probability gaming state, hereinafter referred to as a low-probability gaming state), a hit random number is determined based on a special symbol normal hour hit determination table. In the probabilistic gaming state, a hit random number is determined based on the special symbol high probability hourly determination table. In the special symbol high probability hourly determination table, the number (type) of random numbers for determining that the jackpot is larger than the special symbol normal hour determination table. The determination and type of jackpot will be described later in detail.

  The short-time game control means 743 is a program for controlling the short-time game, but the short-time game in this embodiment is a state in which the normal symbol variation time by the normal symbol variation control means 762 is short and the winning probability of winning in the normal symbol is high. Refers to the game. Specifically, it is as follows.

  When the game ball passes the winning gate 106, a normal symbol lottery is performed. The normal symbol lottery is performed when the CPU 201a activates the normal symbol lottery means 760 and randomly extracts random numbers when the game ball passes through the winning gate 106. The random numbers obtained in this way are determined based on the normal symbol normal hour determination table in the normal gaming state (including the high-probability gaming state that is not the short-time gaming state). Is determined based on the normal symbol time per hour determination table.

  At this time, the normal symbol time per hour determination table is set with more random numbers for determining that the normal symbol normal time per hour determination table than the normal symbol normal time per hour determination table. Thus, the winning probability of the normal symbol in the short-time gaming state is as high as 90%, for example. However, when the normal symbol is won, the pair of movable pieces 120a of the second starting port 120 are opened for a predetermined time, and the game ball is It becomes easy to enter the second start port 120.

  Also, in the short-time gaming state, the variation time of the normal symbol is shortened compared to the normal gaming state. That is, when the game ball passes the winning gate 106, random numbers are acquired and the acquired random numbers are determined. At this time, the player is informed whether the result of the normal symbol lottery is a win or a loss. A predetermined time is required until notification. The time required for notifying the player of the result of the normal symbol lottery is set shorter in the short-time game state than in the normal game state, and in the short-time game state, the normal symbol lottery results are played one after another. And the second start port 120 is frequently opened. In this way, the short-time gaming state makes it easy for a game ball to enter the second starting port 120, so that the game state progresses in a state where the right of the big hit lottery can be obtained without spending much of the game ball. That is.

  The normal game control means 744 controls the progress of a normal game that does not correspond to either the big hit game (long win game, short win game) or the special game state (high probability game state, short-time game state). As described above, the CPU 201a operates any one of the long hit game control means 740, the short hit game control means 741, the high probability game control means 742, the short time game control means 743, and the normal game control means 744 to control the progress of the game. However, the current gaming state controlled by each of the control means 740 to 744 is written in the gaming state storage means 804 of the RAM 201c.

  As a result of the big hit lottery triggered by the game ball entering the first starting port 105 or the second starting port 120, the small hit game control means 745 Control the progress of the hit game. In the small hit game, as in the short hit game, the opening / closing operation of the open / close door 91 by the big prize opening / closing solenoid 97 is performed for 15 rounds. In the small hit game, the number of times the door 91 is opened, the opening time, and the opening timing are exactly the same as those of the “short hit game”.

  Based on one of the above game states, a game related to a normal symbol and a game related to a special symbol proceed. Each of these game states will be described in detail below. First, the normal symbol lottery means 760, the normal symbol display control means 761, the normal symbol variation control means 762, the normal symbol lottery result determination means 763, and the normal symbol hold storage means that start control when the game ball passes the winning gate 106. 803 will be described.

  When the gate detection unit 222 detects that the game ball has passed the winning gate 106, the normal symbol lottery means 760 obtains a random number of 1 from a random number prepared in advance (for example, 0 to 250). When the random number is acquired by the normal symbol lottery means 760, the normal symbol lottery result determination means 763 determines whether or not it is a hit based on the table stored in the ROM 201b. At this time, if it is the normal gaming state, the winning is determined based on the normal symbol normal hour hit determination table, and if it is the time-short gaming state, the hit is determined based on the normal symbol short time hit determining table.

  If the result of the determination by the normal symbol lottery result determination means 763 is a win, the second start port opening / closing solenoid 120b is operated to open the movable piece 120a and maintain the open state. The control is terminated while the second start port opening / closing solenoid 120b is maintained in the closed state without being operated. The result of determination by the normal symbol lottery result determination means 763 is displayed on the normal symbol display 81 by the normal symbol display control means 761.

  When the game ball passes the winning gate 106, the normal symbol display 81 is displayed as if the lamp is lit or flashing as if the lottery is currently being performed, and the lighting or flashing continues for a predetermined time. Later, the lottery result is finally displayed. This is normal symbol variation display, but the variation display time is preset for each gaming state.

  Specifically, in the short-time gaming state, the variation time of the normal symbol is set to be as short as 1.5 seconds, for example, and the probability of winning in the win is also set to a high probability of 90%. Therefore, in the short-time gaming state, as long as the game ball passes through the winning gate 106, the normal symbol lottery and the variation display are successively performed, and the time for the second start port 120 to be kept open becomes long. On the other hand, in game states other than the short-time game state, the variation time of the normal symbol is set to be as long as 10 seconds, for example, and the probability of winning a win is also set as low as 10%.

  In addition, when the normal symbol is won in the short-time gaming state, the second starting port 120 is opened four times for 1.2 seconds, whereas the normal symbol is won in the gaming state other than the short-time gaming state. However, the 0.2 second opening operation is performed only once. As described above, in the short-time gaming state, the time that the second start port 120 is in the open state is much longer than in the normal game state, and the possibility that a game ball enters the second start port 120 is also much greater. Get higher.

  If the game ball further passes through the winning gate 106 during the normal symbol variation display, the right of lottery by the normal symbol lottery means 760, that is, the right of the normal symbol variation display is reserved in the normal symbol hold storage means 803. The The maximum number of reserved rights for the lottery is four, and is displayed on the normal symbol hold display 86 by the normal symbol display control means 761.

  Next, the control when the game ball enters the first start port 105 or the second start port 120 will be described. For example, when the first start port detection unit 221 detects that a game ball has entered the first start port 105, a detection signal is transmitted to the main control board 201.

  When the detection signal is received, the first special symbol lottery means 700 extracts any random number (game data of the present invention) from random numbers (for example, 0 to 299) prepared in advance. The random numbers extracted here include a hit random number, a design random number, a reach random number, and a fluctuation pattern random number. The winning random number is a random number for determining whether or not a big hit, that is, whether or not a right to execute the big hit game is acquired. The design random number is the type of jackpot (long win, short win, presence / absence of transition to high-probability gaming state, presence / absence of transition to short-time gaming state), that is, what game value is given when winning the jackpot It is a random number to determine what will be done. The reach random number is a random number for determining whether or not to perform reach production. The variation pattern random number is a random number for determining the variation pattern of the moving object for production (the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R and the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R) when winning the jackpot. . In the case of a small hit, the variation pattern of the moving object for presentation is determined by the winning random number, and in the case of loss, the effect pattern of the moving object for presentation is determined using the reach random number.

  The RAM 201c of the main control board 201 is provided with a game state storage unit 804 that stores the current game state. When the first special symbol lottery means 700 or the second special symbol lottery means 720 obtains a random number, the first random number determination means 703 or the second random number is based on the gaming state stored in the gaming state storage means 804. The determination unit 723 determines the random number.

  Specifically, if it is a low-probability gaming state, the acquired random number is determined based on the special symbol normal hour determination table, and if it is a high-probability gaming state, the acquired random number is used for special symbol high-probability time determination. Determined based on the table. In the present embodiment, the same determination table is used when a game ball enters the first start port 105 and when a game ball enters the second start port 120. Different determination tables may be used depending on the start opening into which the game ball has entered.

The random numbers acquired by the first special symbol lottery means 700 or the second special symbol lottery means 720 and the determination tables used when determining the acquired random numbers are as shown in FIGS. FIG. 21 (a) shows an example of a jackpot winning probability and a winning random number, and FIG. 21 (b) shows an example of the type of game value given when winning the jackpot, its winning probability, and a design random number. FIG. 21 (c) shows the presence / absence of the reach effect and its appearance probability, the movable member operation (the movable members in this case are the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R and the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R), and An example of a reach random number is shown.
22A shows an example of the fluctuation pattern and fluctuation pattern random number of the movable member at the time of normal big hit, FIG. 22B shows the fluctuation pattern of the movable member and fluctuation pattern random number at the probability of big hit, and FIG. ) Shows an example of the variation pattern of the movable member at the time of a small hit, and a corresponding hit random number. FIG. 23 shows an example of the variation pattern of the movable member and the reach random number at the time of losing. FIG. 24 is an explanatory view showing the operation of the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L, 20R.

  As shown in FIG. 21A, one winning random number is acquired from 300 random numbers from 0 to 299. In the normal gaming state (low probability gaming state), the hit random number is determined based on the special symbol normal hour hit determination table. According to the special symbol normal hour hit determination table, the random number of 3 is a big hit. Determined. On the other hand, in the probability variation gaming state (high probability gaming state), the hit random number is determined based on the special symbol high probability hourly determination table. According to this special symbol high probability hourly determination table, ten random numbers 3, 7, 37, 67, 97, 127, 157, 187, 217, and 247 are determined to be big hits.

  For example, when a game ball enters the first starting port 105, the CPU 201a activates the first special symbol lottery means 700 to acquire the winning random number. At this time, in the normal gaming state, the CPU 201a activates the first random number determination means 703 to determine the hit or loss of the hit random number based on the special symbol normal hour hit determination table. That is, when the winning random number acquired by entering the game ball into the first starting port 105 is 3, it is determined that it is a winning, and when it is any other random number, it is determined that it is lost. In the high probability gaming state, it is determined whether or not the winning is based on the special symbol high probability per hour determination table.

  In the present embodiment, a “small hit” is provided separately from the “big hit” described above, and the winning of the “small win” is also determined by a random number. The “small hit” in the present embodiment is to acquire the right to execute the “small hit game” in which the instant opening operation of the door 91 is performed for 15 rounds as in the case of the short hit game. Therefore, as shown in FIG. 21 (a), regardless of the gaming state, when the winning random number is 0, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, the small hit that opens the door 91 for 15 rounds. A game will be executed. The small hit game is controlled by the CPU 201a operating the small hit game control means 745. Further, as will be described in detail later, this small hit game is not intended for paying out a prize ball, and the player recognizes that the gaming state has shifted to the high probability gaming state, as will be described later. It is provided for the purpose of making it difficult.

As a result of the determination of the winning random number, when it is determined that the winning random number is a random number for acquiring the right to execute the jackpot game, the CPU 201a activates the first random number determining means 703, and FIG. The jackpot type (jackpot symbol) is determined (determined) based on. The types of jackpots determined here are three types: a normal symbol of “per length with a short time”, a probabilistic symbol A of “per length with a short time of high probability”, and a probable symbol B of “short per hour without a high probability of time”. .
One jackpot symbol random number is acquired from 10 random numbers from 0 to 9 shown in FIG. According to the jackpot symbol determination table, four random numbers 0, 1, 2, and 3 are determined as normal symbols, four random numbers 4, 5, 6, and 7 are determined as probability variation symbols A, and 8 , 9 are determined to be probable variation B.

  “Per probability with a short time with high probability” is a game to which three game values are given. When winning this “high probability with short time”, the opening and closing door 91 is controlled to open and close for 15 rounds as the first game value, and a predetermined number (9) of game balls is met. A long hit game is executed in which a predetermined time (30 seconds) elapses. As a result, the player can acquire a large amount of prize balls. When the long hit game ends, the game progresses in the high-probability gaming state as the second gaming value, and the game advances in the short-time gaming state as the third gaming value. As a result, the player can win a large amount of prize balls, and after winning the prize balls, can reduce the consumption of the game balls and realize a big win again early. The short-time gaming state, which is the third gaming value given here, continues until the jackpot is won.

  “Regular per short time” is a game to which two game values are given. This “per length with a short time” is different from the above “per length with a short time with a high probability” in that the winning probability of the jackpot becomes a low-probability gaming state after the end of the game with a long time. Further, in the “per length with normal time saving”, the time-short gaming state after the end of the long winning game ends when a special symbol variation display is performed a predetermined number of times (for example, 100 times).

  As described above, in the present embodiment, after the end of the long hit game in which a large amount of prize balls can be obtained, the long win in which the game progresses in the high probability game state where the winning probability of the big win is high, There is provided a long win in which the game progresses in a low-probability gaming state in which the winning probability is low.

  “High probability short short hit” is a game in which the door 91 is opened for a moment for 15 rounds, and then the game shifts to a high probability gaming state (so-called latent probability changing state) in which the winning probability of jackpot is high. . Even when this “high probability time short without short win” is won, a large amount of prize balls due to opening of the door 91 cannot be obtained immediately. In addition, since there is no short-time gaming state thereafter, the consumption of gaming balls increases. However, since the subsequent gaming state is a high-probability gaming state, there is a high possibility of winning a large number of prize balls by winning the long game in subsequent games.

  In the present embodiment, a “small hit” is provided in order to raise a suspicion for the player that the winning probability of the jackpot is high due to the “high probability short / short short win” win. . However, since this “small hit” is not a kind of big hit, a small hit game is started when a hit random number (0, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250) is acquired instead of a design random number. . In the “small hit game”, the operation of opening and closing the door 91 for 15 moments is repeated for 15 rounds, as in the case of winning the “high probability short time without short win”. However, the “small hit” is different from the “high probability short / short short hit” in that the gaming state does not change at all after the opening / closing operation of the open / close door 91. In other words, if you win “small hit” in the low probability gaming state, then the low probability gaming state continues, and if you win “small hit” in the high probability gaming state, then the high probability gaming state continues. To do.

  When a game ball enters the first starting port 105, the CPU 201a activates the first special symbol lottery means 700 to acquire a reach random number and a variation pattern random number together with the winning random number and the symbol random number. One reach random number is randomly acquired from the random numbers from 0 to 249. The reach random number is determined as follows. That is, when the CPU 201a activates the first random number determination means 703 and determines that the winning random number is lost, the determination of reach random numbers based on the reach random number determination table at the time of loss shown in FIG. I do.

  In the reach random number determination table shown in FIG. 21C and FIG. 23, random numbers from 0 to 21 are determined as reach effects, and other random numbers are determined as reachless effects.

  When the CPU 201a activates the first random number determination unit 703 and determines that the winning random number is a normal big hit (normal symbol), the CPU 201a performs an unconditional determination of reach and the CPU 201a operates the first random number determination unit 703. When the jackpot variation pattern random number is determined based on the normal jackpot variation pattern reference table shown in FIG. 22A, and the winning random number is determined to be a probable variation jackpot (probability variation symbol A, probability variation symbol B). Then, the CPU 201a operates the first random number determination means 703 to determine the presence of reach unconditionally, and determines the jackpot variation pattern random number based on the variation pattern reference table for the probability variation jackpot shown in FIG.

  22 (a) and 22 (b), the jackpot variation pattern random number is randomly acquired from the random numbers 0 to 9, and among the variation patterns A, B, and C, the acquired random number The variation pattern corresponding to the circle on the lower vertical axis is selected.

  When the CPU 201a activates the first random number determination unit 703 and determines that the winning random number is a small hit, it determines that there is a reach unconditionally, the CPU 201a operates the first random number determination unit 703, A hit random number (a hit determination random number) is determined based on the normal small hit variation pattern reference table shown in 22 (c).

  As shown in FIG. 21 (a), there are six types of hit random numbers for small hits (0, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250). In FIG. 22 (c), variation patterns A, B , C, the variation pattern corresponding to the ◯ mark on the lower vertical axis of the acquired hit random number is selected.

  In the variation pattern A, at the time of reach, the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R move from the state shown in FIG. 3 to an intermediate position between the fully opened state and the closed state, and as shown in FIG. At the same time that the ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R move so as to sway continuously from side to side in front of the screen 400 (see FIG. 1), the sub-control board 202 controls the electric power of the ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R shown in FIG. The blinking emission control of the light emitting diodes mounted on the decorative boards 63L and 63R is performed, and the ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R are caused to blink. Thereafter, as shown in FIGS. 4 and 5, the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R are closed, and the ring shapes of the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R are combined. In this state, the sub-control board 202 performs light emission control of the light emitting diodes mounted on the electric decoration boards 63L and 63R of the ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R shown in FIG. 7, and causes the ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R to emit light. In the variation pattern A, the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30 </ b> L and 30 </ b> R shown in FIG. 1 remain hidden behind the frame member 21.

  In the fluctuation pattern B, at the time of reach, the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R move from the state shown in FIG. 3 toward the center of the screen 400 (see FIG. 1), and as shown in FIGS. The ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R are closed, and the ring shapes of the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R are combined. In this state, the sub-control board 202 performs light emission control of the light emitting diodes mounted on the electric decoration boards 63L and 63R of the ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R shown in FIG. 7, and causes the ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R to emit light. Thereafter, the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R move toward the center of the screen 400 (see FIG. 1), and the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R are closed as shown in FIGS. Thus, the heart shapes of the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R are combined. In this state, the sub-control board 202 controls the light emission of the light emitting diodes mounted on the ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L, 20R and the heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L, 30R, which will be described later, on the lighting boards 63L, 63R, 163L, 163R shown in FIG. The ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L, 20R are kept emitting light, and the heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L, 30R are caused to emit light.

  In the variation pattern C, the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R and the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R are hidden behind the frame member 21 and remain in an inoperative state.

  As shown in FIG. 22A, with a normal jackpot, the probability of occurrence of the variation pattern A is 60%, the probability of occurrence of the variation pattern B is 20%, and the probability of occurrence of the variation pattern C is 20%.

  As shown in FIG. 22B, in the probability variation jackpot, the probability that the variation pattern A occurs is 30%, the probability that the variation pattern B occurs is 70%, and the probability that the variation pattern C occurs is 0%.

  As shown in FIG. 22C, in the small hit, the probability that the variation pattern A occurs is 50%, the probability that the variation pattern B occurs is about 16.7%, and the probability that the variation pattern C occurs is about 33. 3%.

  The production with a high expectation level of the jackpot is a variation pattern B in which both the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R and the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R operate, and only the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R operate. The variation pattern A is followed by the variation pattern C with no operation.

  Further, the variation pattern B has a higher expectation for the probability variation jackpot than the variation pattern A.

  Hereinafter, the production mode in the case of losing will be described.

  In FIG. 23, when it is determined that the winning random number is a loss, the reach random number is determined based on the reach random number determination table at the time of the loss.

  Specifically, when the reach random number value is 0 to 3, the movable object operates with reach, and the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R move to an intermediate position between the fully opened state and the closed state, As shown in FIG. 24, the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R move so as to sway continuously from side to side in front of the screen 400 (see FIG. 1). At the same time, the sub control board 202 is shown in FIG. Flashing light emission control of the light emitting diodes mounted on the electric decoration boards 63L and 63R of the ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R is performed, and the ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R are caused to blink and emit light. Thereafter, as shown in FIG. 3, the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L, 20R are completely opened and hidden behind the frame member 21, so that the ring shapes of the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L, 20R are not combined. It becomes a split state. When the reach random number value is 0 to 3, the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R shown in FIG. 1 maintain a state hidden behind the frame member 21.

  When the reach random number is 4, the movable object operates with reach, and the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L, 20R and the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L, 30R move to an intermediate position between the fully opened state and the closed state. The left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R and the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R move so as to sway continuously from side to side in front of the screen 400 (see FIG. 1). The blinking emission control of the light emitting diodes mounted on the electrical decoration boards 163L and 163R of the heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R shown in FIG. 7 is performed, and the heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R are caused to blink. Thereafter, as shown in FIG. 3, the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R and the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R are completely opened and hidden behind the frame member 21, and the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L , The ring shape of 20R and the heart shapes of the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L, 30R are split without being combined.

  When the reach random number value is 5 to 21, the movable object is not operated with reach, and the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R and the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R are hidden behind the frame member 21 and operate. Maintain a state that does not.

  When the reach random number value is 22, the movable object is operated without reach, and the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R and the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R perform the same operation as when the reach random number value is 4. .

  When the reach random number value is 23 to 26, the movable object operates without reach, and the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R and the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R are the same as when the reach random number value is 0 to 3. Perform the operation.

  When the reach random number value is 27 to 249, the movable object is not operated without reach, and the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R and the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R have a reach random number value of 5 to 21 Similarly, the state which is hidden behind the frame member 21 and does not operate is maintained.

  Even when a game ball enters the second start port 120, the same control as described above is performed by the second special symbol lottery means 720 and the second random number determination means 723.

  On the other hand, when a game ball enters the first start port 105 or the second start port 120, if a special symbol change display is performed based on the previous game ball, it is acquired. The random number (game data) is stored in the first special symbol hold storage unit 801 or the second special symbol hold storage unit 802 of the RAM 201c. The first special symbol reservation storage unit 801 and the second special symbol reservation storage unit 802 are configured as shown in FIG.

  FIG. 25 is a diagram showing an example of the storage area related to the holding ball. As is clear from this figure, the first special symbol holding storage means 801 detects that the game ball is detected by the first start port detector 221. Random numbers (hit random numbers, design random numbers, reach random numbers, fluctuation pattern random numbers) acquired based on the fact are stored in association with the order in which game balls are detected as stored balls. In other words, when a game ball enters the first start opening 105, the right of the special symbol change display is stored in the first special symbol storage unit 801 as a so-called reserved ball. The reserved balls retained in the storage unit 801 are digested and processed in the storage unit 801 in the order stored.

  Specifically, the first special symbol storage unit 801 includes four storage areas from the first storage area 801 a to the fourth storage area 801 d, and each time a game ball enters the first start port 105. The reserved balls are retained in order from the first storage area 801a. That is, when a game ball enters the first start port 105 in a state where the reserve ball is retained in the first storage area 801a, the reserve ball is retained in the second storage area 801b. In this way, up to four reserved balls are reserved in the first special symbol storage unit 801.

  On the other hand, when a game ball enters the first starting port 105 in a state in which the holding ball is retained in all of the first storage area 801a to the fourth storage area 801d, a special symbol by the entry is displayed. The right to change is not reserved. In other words, when the number of reserved balls is reserved up to the upper limit number of reserved items in the first special symbol storage means 801, even if a game ball enters the first start port 105, the big hit lottery by the entered ball is performed. I will not. However, even in this case, a predetermined number of prize balls for the game balls entering the first start port 105 are paid out.

  Further, the reserved ball retained in the first special symbol storage unit 801 is always digested (processed) from the first storage area 801a by the first special symbol variation control unit 702. When the reserved sphere stored in the first storage area 801a is digested, the reserved sphere retained from the second storage area 801b to the fourth storage area 801d moves from the storage area to the previous area. That is, when the reserved ball retained in the first storage area 801a is digested, the retained ball retained in the second storage area 801b moves to the first storage area 801a. Similarly, the reserved ball retained in the third storage area 801c moves to the second storage area 801b, and the retained ball retained in the fourth storage area 801d shifts to the third storage area 801c. Therefore, the fourth storage area 801d can accept the reserved ball again, that is, can reserve it.

  On the other hand, when a game ball enters the second start port 120, if the variation display based on the previous game ball is being displayed, the second special symbol storage means 802 stores the game ball. Random numbers (hit random numbers, symbol random numbers, reach random numbers, fluctuation pattern random numbers) acquired based on the detection by the second starting port detection unit 225 are stored in association with the order in which game balls are detected as reserved balls. . That is, when a game ball enters the second start port 120, the right of special symbol change display, that is, the right of jackpot lottery is stored in the second special symbol hold storage means 802 as a hold ball. The right of the special symbol variation display reserved in the storage area 802 is digested and processed in the storage area 802 by the second special symbol variation control means 722 in the stored order.

  Specifically, the second special symbol hold storage means 802 includes four storage areas from the fifth storage area 802a to the eighth storage area 802d, and each time a game ball enters the second start port 120, The reserved balls are retained in order from the fifth storage area 802a. That is, when a game ball enters the second start port 120 in a state where it is retained in the fifth storage area 802a, a reserved ball is retained in the sixth storage area 802b. In this way, up to four reserved balls are reserved in the second special symbol reservation storage means 802. On the other hand, when a game ball enters the second starting port 120 in a state where the reserved ball is retained in all of the fifth storage area 802a to the eighth storage area 802d, the change display of the special symbol is displayed. Rights are not reserved. In other words, if the number of reserved balls is reserved up to the upper limit number of reserves in the second special symbol storage unit 802, even if a game ball enters the second start port 120, the big hit lottery by the entered ball is performed. I will not. However, even in this case, a predetermined number of prize balls for the game balls entering the second start port 120 are paid out.

  In addition, when a plurality of reserved balls are reserved in the second special symbol storage unit 802, it is digested from the fifth storage area 802a, but the reserved balls stored in the fifth storage area 802a are digested. Then, the reserved ball retained from the sixth storage area 802b to the eighth storage area 802d moves from the storage area to the previous area. That is, when the reserved ball retained in the fifth storage area 802a is digested, the retained ball retained in the sixth storage area 802b moves to the fifth storage area 802a. Similarly, the reserved ball retained in the seventh storage area 802c moves to the sixth storage area 802b, and the retained ball retained in the eighth storage area 802d shifts to the seventh storage area 802c. Therefore, the eighth storage area 802d can accept the reserved ball again, that is, can reserve it.

  As described above, in the present embodiment, the storage area is divided for each start opening into which the game ball has entered, and the reserved balls are reserved. Therefore, the random numbers related to these hold balls and the start opening into which the game balls have entered are stored. It is stored in association with each other. However, as described above, the storage balls may be stored by another method without storing the storage balls separately in the two storage units 801 and 802. For example, the reserved balls are retained in one storage means in the order in which the game balls enter the start opening. At this time, it may be stored in association with the holding ball which starting ball the game ball has entered, and the holding ball associated with the preset starting port may be preferentially processed.

  Each of the eight storage areas from the first storage area 801a to the eighth storage area 802d has a hit random number storage area, a design random number storage area, and a reach random number storage area, as shown in FIG. And a variation pattern random number storage area. The winning random number storage area stores the winning random number, the symbol random number storage area stores the symbol random number, the reach random number storage area stores the reach random number, and the variation pattern storage area stores the variation pattern. Is done. As described above, when the reserved ball is retained in the first special symbol storage unit 801, the CPU 201a operates the first special symbol display control unit 701 to determine the number of retained balls retained. Displayed on the hold indicator 84.

  It should be noted that the second special symbol lottery means 720 and the second special symbol display control means 721 also when a game ball enters the second start port 120 and the second start port detection unit 225 detects the game ball. The second special symbol variation control means 722 and the second random number determination means 723 perform the same processing as described above. However, the extracted random number is stored in any one of the fifth storage area 802a to the eighth storage area 802d.

  When a plurality of reserved balls are reserved in the special symbol holding storage means 801, 802, the reserved balls are digested in the following order. In other words, when a reserved ball is retained in both the first special symbol storage unit 801 and the second special symbol storage unit 802, the retained ball retained in the second special symbol storage unit 802 has priority. Digested. For example, as shown in FIG. 26 (a), the reserved balls are retained in the first storage area 801a to the third storage area 801c of the first special symbol reservation storage means 801, and the fifth special symbol reservation storage means 802 It is assumed that a holding ball is reserved in the storage area 802a and the sixth storage area 802b.

  The order in which the game balls enter the first start port 105 and the second start port 120 is, as shown, the first start port 105 → the second start port 120 → the first start port 105 → the second start port. It is assumed that 120 → first start port 105. In this embodiment, since the second start port 120 is a priority start port, in this case, the hold balls in the fifth storage area 802a are preferentially processed, and hold is performed in the order of the arrows shown in FIG. The ball is digested.

  For example, as shown in FIG. 26 (c), it is assumed that three reserved balls are reserved in the first special symbol storage unit 801 that performs non-priority processing. In this case, the three reserved balls retained in the first special symbol storage unit 801 are successively digested in the order indicated by the dotted lines in the figure. However, when the first reserved ball is digested, in other words, when the first special symbol variation display is performed, the reserved ball is stored in the second special symbol holding storage means 802 to which priority processing is performed. Is retained (when the ball enters the second starting port 120), the reserved ball is interrupted, and the reserved balls are digested in the order indicated by the solid line in the figure.

  As is clear from this, in the storage units 801 and 802, when a plurality of reserved balls are reserved in the first storage area 801a where non-priority processing is performed, the fifth storage area where priority processing is performed. There is a high possibility that an interruption process will be performed when the reserved ball is reserved at 802a. On the other hand, when a game ball enters the second start port 120, which is the priority start port, and a plurality of holding balls are reserved, no interruption processing is performed, and the plurality of holding balls are always continuous. To be digested.

  The retained balls are sequentially digested as described above. The CPU 201a controls the digestion of the retained balls, and the first special symbol variation control means 702 and the second special symbol variation control means of the ROM 201b. 722. Both of these fluctuation control means 702 and 722 monitor the first storage area 801a or the fifth storage area 802a to determine which reserved ball is to be processed.

  Next, the control when a game ball enters the starting port will be specifically described with reference to FIG. As shown in FIG. 27, first, the first start port detecting unit 221 or the second start port detecting unit 225 detects that a game ball has entered the first start port 105 or the second start port 120.

(Step S301)
Then, the CPU 201a of the main control board 201 operates a variation determination program (not shown) to determine whether or not the special symbol is being displayed in a variation manner. At this time, if it is determined that the special symbol is not being displayed in a varying manner, the variation display of the special symbol based on the incoming ball is immediately performed, so that the variation start process in FIG. 28 described later is performed.

(Step S302)
On the other hand, if it is determined in step S301 that the change is in progress, the first special symbol hold storage unit 801 or the second special symbol hold storage unit 802 sends a random number to the fourth storage area 801d or the eighth storage area 802d. Determine whether it is stored. Specifically, when a ball entry signal is received from the first start port detector 221, it is determined whether the number of reserved balls in the first special symbol storage unit 801 is less than 4, and the second start When the incoming signal is received from the mouth detecting unit 225, it is determined whether or not the number of reserved balls in the second special symbol storage unit 802 is less than 4.

  If it is determined in step S302 that there are four reserved balls, a special symbol variation display, that is, a big win lottery will not be performed depending on the game ball's entry. The control on the main control board 201 is finished by paying out.

(Step S303)
On the other hand, if it is determined in step S302 that the number of reserved balls is less than 4, that is, it is determined that the reserved balls are reserved, the first storage area 801a to the fourth storage area 801d or the fifth storage area 802a to the eighth storage area. In 802d, game data (a hit random number, a design random number, a reach random number, a variation pattern random number) is stored, and a reserved ball is reserved.
At this time, the CPU 201a activates a predetermined program, and the reserved number of reserved balls is lit and displayed on the special symbol hold indicators 84 and 85. Thereby, the control in the main control board 201 is completed.

(Variation start processing)
Next, with respect to the control related to the special symbol change display performed based on the game data, and the control related to the special game (long win game, short win game, small hit game) performed after the special symbol change display, FIG. This will be described with reference to FIG.

(Step S401)
First, when starting the variation display of the special symbol, game data (hit random number, symbol random number, reach random number, variation pattern random number) is stored in a predetermined processing area of the RAM 201c in the main control board 201. Here, when the game ball enters the start port when the special symbol variation display is not performed, the CPU 201a operates the first special symbol lottery means 700 or the second special symbol lottery means 720 to play the game. Data is acquired, and this game data is stored in the processing area. On the other hand, when game data is stored in the first special symbol storage unit 801 or the second special symbol storage unit 802, the CPU 201a operates a predetermined program to store the first storage area 801a or the fifth storage. The game data stored in the area 802a is stored in the processing area.

(Step S402)
Further, when game data is stored in the first special symbol hold storage means 801 or the second special symbol hold storage means 802, each game data is shifted to the previous storage area. Specifically, in the above step S401, when the game data stored in the fifth storage area 802a of the second special symbol storage means 802 is stored in the processing area, the sixth storage area 802b to the eighth storage are stored. The game data stored in the area 802d is shifted to the previous storage area. On the other hand, when the game data stored in the first storage area 801a of the first special symbol holding storage means 801 is stored in the processing area in step S401, the second storage area 801b to the fourth storage area 801d are stored. The stored game data is shifted to the previous storage area. However, if no game data is stored in the first special symbol hold storage unit 801 or the second special symbol hold storage unit 802, the process in step S402 is not performed.

(Step S403)
In step S401, when game data is stored in the processing area, the CPU 201a operates a predetermined program to determine whether or not the gaming state stored in the gaming state storage unit 804 is a high probability gaming state. However, here, there is no distinction between the high probability gaming state after the end of the long hit game and the high probability gaming state after the end of the short hit game.

(Step S404) (Step S405)
If it is determined in step S403 that the game state is not the high probability game state (low probability game state), the special symbol normal time determination table is selected. On the other hand, if it is determined in step S403 that the game state is a high probability game state (regardless of whether there is a short time game state), the special symbol high probability determination table is selected. The table selected here is a hit determination table for determining a hit random number, a symbol determination table for determining a design random number, a reach random number determination table for determining a reach random number, and a variation pattern random number for determining a variation pattern random number. There are four determination tables.

(Step S406)
Then, the CPU 201a operates the first random number determination unit 703 or the second random number determination unit 723 to determine each random number based on the table selected in step S404 or step S405. Thereby, whether or not the jackpot can be won, the type of jackpot in the case of winning the jackpot, and the aspect of the effect made during the change display of the special symbol are determined. Since each random number determination process is as described above, a description thereof is omitted here.

(Step S407)
In step S407, as a result of determining the reach random number, it is determined whether the effect mode is an effect with reach or an effect without reach.

(Step S408)
When it is determined that the effect mode is the effect with reach, the CPU 201a further operates the first special symbol lottery means 700 or the second special symbol lottery means 720 to acquire the effect random number. This effect random number is used to determine the time for displaying the variation of the special symbol, that is, the time (scale) of the reach effect. For example, one random number is randomly selected from 0 to 250 effect random numbers.

(Step S409)
When the effect random number is acquired, the effect random number is determined based on the effect random number determination table stored in the ROM 201b. For example, when the production random number is 0 to 50 production random numbers, the reach production time is determined to be 20 seconds, and when the production random number is 51 to 150, the reach production time is 30. When it is determined to be seconds and the effect random number is 151 to 250, the reach effect time is determined to be 60 seconds. Therefore, in this step S409, the time for the special symbol variation display, that is, the time for the reach effect is determined.

(Step S410)
On the other hand, if it is determined in step S407 that the effect is not reachable (not reachable), the CPU 201a activates a predetermined program to store the first special symbol storage unit 801 and the second special symbol storage. The total number of reserved balls of the means 802 is determined.

(Step S411)
Then, the CPU 201a operates a variation time determination program (not shown) to determine the variation time (effect time) of the special symbol based on the total number of reserved balls. For example, when the total number of reserved balls is 0 or 1 during the change start process, the change time is determined to be 12 seconds. Further, when the total number of reserved balls is 2, the variation time is determined to be 8 seconds and 3 or more to 4 seconds.

  In addition, when starting the variable display of the special symbol related to the reserved ball retained in the first special symbol storage unit 801, the variation time according to the number of reserved balls in the first special symbol storage unit 801 Is determined, and the change display of the special symbol related to the reserved ball retained in the second special symbol reservation storage means 802 is started, according to the number of reserved balls in the second special symbol reservation storage means 802 The fluctuation time may be determined.

(Step S412)
When the time for special symbol variation display (reach effect time, reach-less effect time) is determined as described above, the CPU 201a activates the effect execution command transmission means 733 to send the effect execution command to the sub-control board 202. Send. Each information based on the game data is attached to the effect execution command. Specifically, whether or not you win a jackpot (including a jackpot), if you win a jackpot, the type (long win, short win,), the mode of production (reach with reach or non-reach production Information about the current game state stored in the game state storage unit 804, and information regarding the time of the variable symbol display of the special symbol.

(Step S413)
When an effect execution command is transmitted as described above, the CPU 201a activates the first special symbol display control means 701 to start the special symbol display on the special symbol indicators 82 and 83. The special symbol variation display time is set to the time determined in step S409 or step S411. After the time has elapsed, the special symbol indicators 82 and 83 have a symbol corresponding to the type of jackpot. Finally stop display.

(Step S414)
In addition, if the game data is a “big hit (long win, short win)”, it is necessary to start the jackpot game because the big jackpot game will start after the special symbol change display ends. Processing is performed. Therefore, here, it is determined whether or not the game data wins the “big hit”.

(Step S415)
If it is determined in step S414 that the “big hit” is not won, it is further determined whether or not the “small win” is won. Then, when the “small hit” is won, processing for starting the small hit game is performed after the special symbol variation display is completed. On the other hand, when neither “big hit” nor “small win” is won, the processing in the main control board 201 is ended.
When the effect execution command is transmitted to the sub-control board 202 in step S412, the sub-control board 202 displays the decorative symbol effect on the symbol display unit 104 and the right ring-shaped opening / closing member during the special symbol variation display. 20L, 20R, left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L, 30R, effect effects by the effect objects 115, 116, and other sound effects and lamp effects are controlled. This control will be described in detail later.

  In the special symbol variation start process controlled as described above, if the jackpot is won, after the jackpot special symbol is stopped and displayed, "long win game" or "short win game" starts Is done. If it is determined in step S414 that the big win is won, the RAM 201c stores whether the long win or the short win is identifiable. In the case of winning per long, the “long winning game” is controlled as shown in FIG.

(Step S501)
First, at the start of control of the long hit game, the CPU 201 a operates the long hit game control means 740 and transmits a long hit effect start signal to the sub-control board 202. In the sub-control board 202, the effect during the long game is started by receiving the long effect production start signal. In the present embodiment, a movie is displayed on the symbol display unit 104 during a long game, the effect light 111 is lit corresponding to the movie, and music is output from the speaker 277. Such effects are consistently performed from the start to the end of the long hit game, but are controlled by the CPU 202a of the sub control board 202 operating the effect control means 902.

(Step S502)
As described above, when an effect dedicated to the long hit game is started, the CPU 201a activates the long hit game control means 740 to start energization of the special winning opening opening / closing solenoid 97 and open the open / close door 91. As a result, a game ball can enter the big winning opening 93.

  At the same time as energization of the big prize opening / closing solenoid 97, a round start signal is transmitted from the main control board 201 to the sub control board 202. When the sub control board 202 receives the round start signal, the CPU 202a operates the effect control means 902 to control the effect for each round. For example, in the symbol display unit 104, a movie dedicated to a long game is already displayed, and a message such as “start one round” is displayed together with this movie.

(Step S503) (Step S504) (Step S505)
In step S502, when the door 91 is opened, a time counter provided on the main control board 201 starts measuring time. When the predetermined time (30 seconds) elapses, the CPU 201a activates the long hit game control means 740 to stop energization of the special prize opening / closing solenoid 97 (step S505) and close the open / close door 91. Similarly, when the special winning opening detecting unit 224 detects the entry of a predetermined number (9) of game balls, the energization of the special winning opening / closing solenoid 97 is stopped. Therefore, the control in steps S503 and S504 is repeatedly performed within a predetermined time after the opening / closing door 91 is opened and while the number of game balls detected by the special winning opening detection unit 224 is less than the predetermined number. Thus, the open / close door 91 is maintained in the open state.

(Step S506)
In step S505, when the special winning opening detecting unit 224 detects that the predetermined time has elapsed or the predetermined winning opening detecting unit 224 detects a predetermined number of game balls, the CPU 201a is hit for a long time. The game control means 740 is operated, and “1” is counted and stored in the round number storage means 805. The count value stored in the round number storage means 805 is used to determine how many rounds of the game per game have been played.

(Step S507)
Further, the CPU 201a operates the long hit game control means 740 to determine the count value stored in the round number storage means 805. If the count value is not 15, the processes in steps S502 to S506 are repeated.

(Step S508)
On the other hand, if the number of rounds reaches 15 as a result of repeating the processes in steps S502 to S507, the count value stored in the round number storage unit 805 is cleared.

(Step S509)
When the opening / closing operation of the open / close door 91 is performed a predetermined number of times (15 rounds), the long hit game is ended, and the CPU 201a operates the long hit game control means 740 to send a long hit game end signal to the sub-control board 202. Send. When the sub-control board 202 receives the long hit game end signal, the CPU 202b activates the effect control means 902, and the so-called long hit game end effect is performed.

(Step S510)
Further, the CPU 201a operates the long hit game control means 740, and the subsequent game state is stored in the game state storage means 804. In the present embodiment, since the gaming state becomes the short-time gaming state after the end of the long hit game, the gaming state storage unit 804 stores a flag indicating that it is the short-time gaming state. Further, when the long winning game related to the winning of “high probability with short time” ends, a flag indicating the high probability gaming state is stored in the gaming state storage means 804, and “ When the long winning game related to winning is completed, a flag indicating the low probability gaming state is stored.
In this way, when the process for proceeding with the subsequent game is performed, the control of the long hit game on the main control board 201 is finished.

  On the other hand, when winning a short win, the control of “short win game” is performed as shown in FIG.

(Step S601)
First, at the start of control of the short hit game, the CPU 201 a operates the short hit game control means 741 to transmit a short hit effect start signal to the sub-control board 202. In the sub control board 202, the effect during the short hit game is started by receiving the short hit effect start signal (step S601a). In the present embodiment, a movie is displayed on the symbol display unit 104 during the short hit game, the effect light 111 is turned on corresponding to the movie, and music is output from the speaker 277. Such effects are consistently performed from the start to the end of the short hit game, but are controlled by the CPU 202a of the sub control board 202 operating the effect control means 902.

  The short hit game is set in advance from the start to the end, and the short hit game-specific effect is set to the short hit game from the start to the end. As an effect dedicated to the short hit game, for example, an effect related to the opening at the time of starting a “probability change suggestion effect mode” described later is suitable.

  In the sub control board 202, when the short hit effect start signal is received, the CPU 202a operates the probability variation suggestion flag control means 903 to store the probability variation suggestion flag in the probability variation suggestion flag storage means 911 (step S601b). This probability change suggestion flag is used for performing the effect during the subsequent variation display of the special symbol in the probability change suggestion effect mode described later after the short hit game is completed.

(Step S602)
As described above, when an effect dedicated to the short hit game is started, the CPU 201a activates the short hit game control means 741 to energize the special winning opening opening / closing solenoid 97 (step S602), and opens the open / close door 91. However, in this short win game, the energization time to the big prize opening / closing solenoid 97 is set to be as short as 0.1 seconds, so the opening / closing door 91 returns to the closed state immediately after opening for a moment. However, since the weight of the opening / closing door 91 acts, the time from the opening / closing of the opening / closing door 91 to the complete closing thereof is longer than 0.1 seconds.

(Step S603)
In step S602, when the special prize opening / closing solenoid 97 is energized, the time counter provided on the main control board 201 starts measuring time.

(Step S604)
In step S603, when a predetermined time (1.5 seconds) elapses, the CPU 201a activates the short hit game control means 741, and counts and stores “1” in the round number storage means 805. As a result, it is determined how many rounds the short hit game has been played.

(Step S605)
Further, the CPU 201 a operates the short hit game control means 741 to determine the count value stored in the round number storage means 805. If the count value is not 15, the processes in steps S602 to S604 are repeated. Note that the time until the process of step S602 is repeated is the predetermined time (1.5 seconds). That is, in the short hit game, the time during which the open / close door 91 is opened is set to 1.5 seconds.

(Step S606)
On the other hand, when the processes in steps S602 to S604 are performed 15 times, the count value stored in the round number storage unit 805 is cleared.

(Step S607)
Further, the CPU 201a activates the short hit game control means 741, and the subsequent game state is stored in the game state storage means 804. More specifically, when the gaming state becomes the short-time gaming state after the short hit game, the flag indicating the short-time gaming state is stored in the gaming state storage unit 804. In addition, when the short win game related to the winning of “short win with high probability short time” or “short win without high probability short time” is finished, a flag indicating that the game state storage means 804 is in a high probability game state is displayed. Remembered. On the other hand, when the short win game related to the winning of “short win with normal time” or “short win without normal time” is completed, a flag indicating that the game state is low probability is stored.

  In this way, when the process for proceeding with the subsequent game is performed, the control of the short hit game on the main control board 201 is finished.

  On the other hand, in the special symbol variation start process controlled as described above, when the small bonus is won, the “small bonus game” is started after the small bonus special symbol is stopped and displayed. . In the case of winning a small hit, the “small hit game” is controlled as shown in FIG.

(Step S701)
First, at the start of control of the small hit game, the CPU 201 a operates the small hit game control means 745 and transmits a small hit effect start signal to the sub-control board 202. In the sub control board 202, the effect during the small hit game is started by receiving the small hit effect start signal (step S701a). In the present embodiment, during the small hit game (in this case, including the advance notice before the door 91 opens), the variation pattern of the movable member at the time of the small hit shown in FIG. A movie is displayed on the symbol display unit 104, an effect light 111 is lit corresponding to the movie, and music is output from the speaker 277. Such effects are consistently performed from the start to the end of the small hit game, but are controlled by the CPU 202a of the sub control board 202 operating the effect control means 902.

  Note that the time from the start to the end of the small hit game is set in advance, and the effect dedicated to the small hit game is set to the time from the start to the end of the small hit game. Further, the special effect for the small hit game is set to the same content as the special effect for the short hit game. In this way, the player does not know whether the small hit game is being executed or the short hit game is being executed simply by looking at the effect.

  In the sub control board 202, when the small hit effect start signal is received, the CPU 202a activates the probability variation suggestion flag control means 903, and stores the probability variation suggestion flag in the probability variation suggestion flag storage means 911 (step S701b).

(Step S702)
As described above, simultaneously with the start of the special game for the small hit game, the CPU 201a activates the small hit game control means 745 to intermittently energize the big prize opening / closing solenoid 97. That is, the small hit game control means 745 is programmed to perform energization for 0.1 second to the big prize opening / closing solenoid 97 15 times at intervals of 1.5 seconds. Therefore, when the CPU 201a operates the small hit game control means 745, the opening / closing operation of the opening / closing door 91 is continuously performed 15 times.

  This small hit game control method is different from the short hit game control method, but the opening / closing operation of the open / close door 91 is set in the same manner for the short hit game and the small hit game. Accordingly, not only the production as described above, but also when the opening / closing operation of the door 91 is viewed, the player makes a distinction between whether the small hit game is being executed or whether the short hit game is being executed. It is not possible.

  Next, control of effects performed during the special symbol variation display will be described with reference to FIG. As described above, when the special symbol variation start process is performed, an effect execution command is transmitted from the main control board 201 to the sub control board 202 (step S412 in FIG. 28). In the present embodiment, when the sub control board 202 receives the effect execution command, the effect related to either the “normal effect mode” or the “probability change suggestion effect mode” is executed.

  Here, the “normal effect mode” is an effect mode mainly performed in the normal game state. Further, the “probability change suggestion effect mode” is an effect mode that is performed after the end of the “small hit game” and the “short hit game”. In the “probable change suggestion effect mode”, for example, in the symbol display unit 104, a character that does not appear in the “normal effect mode” appears, or a different background image is displayed. In addition, an audio production that is different from the “normal production mode” is developed such that music different from the “normal production mode” is output. In any case, the content of the “probable change suggestion effect mode” is not particularly limited as long as it is an effect mode different from the “normal effect mode” at first glance. In this way, by making an effect mode different from the “normal effect mode”, the player is expected to have a high probability game state.

  The ROM 202b of the sub-control board 202 stores two tables, a “normal effect mode table” and a “probability change suggestion effect mode table”. Both tables store a plurality of effect commands having contents corresponding to the respective modes. For example, in the “normal effect mode”, one effect command is selected from the “normal effect mode table”. . In the following, a flow from when an effect command is selected from both tables until the effect is controlled based on the effect command will be described.

(Step S801)
When the sub control board 202 receives the effect execution command, the CPU 202a activates a predetermined program to determine whether or not the probability variation suggestion flag is stored in the probability variation suggestion flag control means 903. Here, the case where the probability variation suggestion flag is stored is a case where either “short win game” or “small hit game” is performed before the special symbol change start processing (FIG. 30). Step S601b, Step S701b in FIG. 31).

(Step S802)
If it is determined in step S801 that the probability variation suggestion flag is not stored, the “normal effect mode table” is selected.

(Step S803)
On the other hand, if it is determined in step S801 that the probability variation suggestion flag storage unit 911 stores the probability variation suggestion flag, the “probability variation suggestion effect mode table” is selected. In other words, after the “short hit game” or the “small hit game” is ended, an effect related to the “probable change suggestion effect mode” is performed during the special symbol variation display.

(Step S804)
As described above, when one of the “normal effect mode table” and the “probable change suggestion effect mode table” is selected, the CPU 202a operates the effect lottery means 901 to perform the effect lottery.

  In addition, in both of the above tables, the table when winning “long win”, the table when winning “short win”, the table when winning “small hit”, and the table when “losing” Each table is provided. Moreover, each table is further provided with a reach effect table and a non-reach effect table, and is further provided with tables corresponding to effect times that can be executed for each effect mode. Then, the corresponding table is selected based on the information related to the effect time information included in the received effect execution command and the effect mode (the effect with reach and the effect without reach). Each of these tables includes a decorative symbol effect mode in the symbol display unit 104, an effect effect effect mode in the effect actors 115 and 116, a movable object for the effect (the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R, and the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members). A plurality of commands each of which a combination of an effect effect mode, a sound effect mode, and a lamp effect mode in the members 30L, 30R, etc. are stored, and one command is determined from the plurality of commands.

(Step S805)
If one command is determined in step S804, it is determined whether or not the received effect execution command is an effect execution command related to “long hit”. As a result, when it is determined that the received effect execution command does not relate to “long hit”, the effect is controlled based on the confirmed command in step S808 described later.

(Step S806)
On the other hand, if it is determined in step S805 that the received effect execution command is related to “long hit”, the probability variation suggestion flag stored in the probability variation suggestion flag storage unit 911 is turned OFF. . As a result, the production by the “probable change suggestion production mode” executed after the “short win game” or “small win game” is finished, and the production is controlled in the “normal production mode” after the big game is finished. The Rukoto.

(Step S807)
When each control is performed as described above, the CPU 202a operates the effect control means 902, and based on the determined command, the symbol display unit 104, the effect actors 115 and 116, the left and right ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R, and Control of the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R, the speaker 277, and the effect light 111 is started. Thus, various effects are performed during the special symbol variation display, and the player's expectation is enhanced by such effects.

According to the embodiment of the present invention described above, according to the embodiment of the present invention described above, the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R are in an upper or lower position while stopped without contacting each other. Of the contact surface on the side,
Since the contact surfaces 98L and 98R on the side to which the driving force is not applied are arranged so as to be shifted in the closing direction from the contact surfaces 99L and 99R on the side to which the driving force is applied, the shutter operating means When the driving force is applied to either the upper side or the lower side of the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L, 30R, the lower side and the upper side of the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L, 30R are simultaneously applied. It can be closed, and the appearance of the operation of the opening / closing member can be improved to give a good impression to the player.

  The ring-type opening / closing members 20L and 20R are also applied with the driving force in the upper or lower contact surface in a state where they are stopped without contacting each other, like the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R. The ring-shaped opening / closing members 20L and 20R and the heart-shaped opening / closing member 30R are also arranged by inclining the contact surface on the non-contact side so as to be shifted in the closing direction from the contact surface on the drive force-applied side. The same effects as those of the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L and 30R are obtained.

  Further, in this embodiment, the configuration in which the driving force is applied only to the lower side of the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L, 30R is adopted, but the configuration in which the driving force is applied only to the upper side of the left and right heart-shaped opening / closing members 30L, 30R. In the case where it is adopted, the same effect as in the present embodiment can be obtained by arranging the lower contact surface so as to be shifted in the closing direction from the upper contact surface in a stopped state without contacting each other. can get.
