  Here, since the decoration member 37 has a simple configuration having only the wiring from the ball detection sensor 53 of the normal symbol operation port 52 and the wiring from the game information display device 45, the decoration member 37 is provided. Is disposed in the first opening 20a of the game board 20, the burden of attention to the biting and catching of the wiring is reduced, and workability is improved. Further, in the manufacturing process of the pachinko machine 10, the decorative member 37 is disposed in the first opening 20a with the surface of the game board 20 turned down so that the game board 20 faces upward, and then the game board 20 is turned over and the game is turned over. A rendering device 90 is attached. Here, as described above, the decorative member 37 is not provided with the movable decorative member 115 (the first movable body 117 and the second movable body 118, 118) and the illumination means 149 that are vulnerable to impacts, so It is possible to prevent the movable bodies 117, 118 and the illumination means 149 from being damaged by the impact when turning over, and the wiring connected to the movable decorative member 115 and the illumination means 149 to be caught on the work table and to be disconnected, thereby improving workability. Is planned.

  The game effect device 90 disposed on the back side of the game board 20 is provided with first and second drive motors 110 and 111 for the movable decorative member 115 (the first movable body 117 and the second movable body 118 and 118). Since the first and second drive motors 110 and 111 are arranged at positions outside the second opening 39 of the decorative member 37 (annular body 38) in the frame-like case body 91, the second opening 39 Since only the movable decorative member 115 (first and second movable bodies 117, 118, 118) and the illumination means 149 can be positioned on the movable decorative member 115 (first and second movable bodies 117, 118, 118) and The production effect can be improved by increasing the size of the illumination means 149. Further, by providing the frame-shaped case body 91 with the drive motors 110 and 111 and the drive transmission means 120 and 140, the drive motor 110 regardless of the size of the second opening 39 of the decorative member 37 (annular body 38). 111 and complicated drive transmission means 120, 140 can be used, and the movable bodies 117, 118, 118 can be moved in various ways.

  Further, since the members of the movable bodies 117, 118, 118, the drive motors 110, 111, and the drive transmission means 120, 140 are disposed in a single frame-shaped case body 91, the frame-shaped case body 91 can be attached and detached. By exchanging, these members can be attached to and detached from the game board 20 at a time, and workability can be improved. And since the positional relationship of each said movable body 117,118,118, drive motor 110,111, and drive transmission means 120,140 is determined uniquely, each member is arrange | positioned with respect to the game board 20 separately. Compared to the case, it is possible to appropriately transmit the driving force of the driving means 110, 111 to the movable bodies 117, 118, 118 without requiring troublesome work.

  In the embodiment, the wiring from the first and second drive motors 110 and 111 and the first and second position detection sensors 137 and 146 are provided on the back side of the left frame portion 94 in the frame-shaped case body 91. A driving relay substrate 106 is provided to connect the wiring, and wiring from the second light emitter substrate 156 disposed on the illumination unit 149 (first light emitter substrate 154) and other frame-shaped case body 91 is connected. By providing the lighting relay board 107, the frame-like case body 91 can be attached to the game board 20 in a state where these wirings are connected to the corresponding connection positions. Can be prevented. Each of the driving relay board 106 and the lighting relay board 107 is connected to the control relay board 22 provided at a position below the frame-like case body 91 on the back surface of the game board 20 and is connected to the control relay board 22. And the overall control device 161 can be electrically connected to the corresponding drive control device 163 and light emission control device 164 simply by wiring connection. In particular, in the configuration in which the overall control device 161 (the drive control device 163 and the light emission control device 164) is disposed on the back side of the frame-like case body 91 as in the embodiment, the drive relay substrate 106 and the illumination relay substrate. The wiring connecting 107 and the overall control device 161 is relay-connected by the control relay board 22, so that the wiring can be simplified when the case body 32 and the control overall device 161 are attached.

  Further, when fixing the case body 32 (special symbol display device 30), it is only necessary to rotate the fixing tool 35 by a fingertip operation without using a screw or a screw. It can be easily attached, and the assembling workability of the case body 32 (special symbol display device 30) can be improved, and the working time can be shortened. The case body 32 is directly attached to the back side of the frame-like case body 91 attached to the game board 20, so that the special symbol display device 30 can be attached to the back side of the game board 20 as in the past. Compared to the case where the three members / devices of the fixing member, the game effect device, and the special symbol display device are attached to each other in the front-rear direction, the width dimension in the front-rear direction of the pachinko machine 10 can be suppressed. The device 30 and the game effect device 90 can be arranged.

  Further, when attaching the case body 32 to the installation portion 99, the positioning holes 34 a and 34 a formed in the case body 32 engage with the positioning protrusions 102 and 102 formed in the frame-shaped case body 91. Since the case body 32 is positioned, the assembling work can be performed more easily. Further, after the case body 32 is attached to the installation portion 99, the positioning holes 34a and 34a formed in the case body 32 are engaged with the positioning protrusions 102 and 102 formed in the frame-like case body 91, respectively. Thus, there is an effect of preventing backlash by regulating the vertical and horizontal movements of the case body 32.

  In addition, as described above, the engagement receiving portions 100, 100, 100 provided on the back side of the frame-shaped case body 91 are the engagement pieces 33, 33, 33 protruding from the right side surface of the case body 32. Since the right side surface of the case body 32 can be fixed to the installation part 99 by being inserted into the case body, the workability of the assembling work is further improved. Furthermore, the case body 32 can be further miniaturized and the installation space (installation area) thereof can be reduced. More specifically, when the fixture 35 disposed on the left side surface of the case body 32 is configured to be disposed on the right side surface of the case body 32 instead of the engagement pieces 33, It is necessary to perform the assembling work by operating (fixing) each of the fixing tools 35. Further, since the structure of the fixture 35 is more complicated than that of the engaging piece 33, the size thereof is larger than that of the engaging piece 33, and the case body 32 is also enlarged. On the other hand, in the embodiment, the assembling work is completed only by operating the fixing tool 35 once, so that the work can be simplified and the workability is improved. Furthermore, the structure of the engagement piece 33 is simpler than the structure of the fixture 35, and the size thereof is smaller than that of the fixture 35. Therefore, the case body 32 can be reduced in size, and the space for installing the case body 32 can be reduced. That is, when the engagement piece 33 is configured to project, when the width dimension in the left-right direction is the same as the case where the rotary fixture 35 is provided on the left and right side surfaces of the case body 32, The width of the case body 32 itself in the left-right direction can be increased, and a larger special symbol display device 30 can be employed.

  Further, in the game effect device 90, the movable bodies 117, 118, 118 and the drive motors 110, 111 are disposed on the frame-shaped case body 91, and drive transmission means 120, 140 (possible to transmit the driving force). Since the flexible wire 123, the converting means 130, and the second slide plate 141) are configured to cover and protect the frame-shaped case body 91, due to external factors such as contact of the pachinko sphere P dropped from the sphere tank 12a, It is possible to suitably prevent malfunctions in the drive transmission means 120 and 140.

  In the embodiment, the first movable body 117 is disposed at a position biased to the right side of the third opening 97 in the frame-shaped case body 91, and is separated from the first movable body 117 in the frame-shaped case body 91. A first drive motor 110 is disposed at the upper left position. The first drive motor 110 and the conversion means 130 provided on the back side of the first movable body 117 are connected and connected via a flexible wire 123 provided on the upper frame portion 92 of the frame-shaped case body 91. ing. That is, the first drive motor 110 and the first movable body 117 are connected and connected simply by extending the flexible wire 123 along the upper frame portion 92 of the frame-shaped case body 91. The upper frame portion 92 (the distance between the special symbol display device 30 and the ball tank 12a) can be made as small as possible, and the special symbol display device 30 can be enlarged to improve the power of game effects. Further, the flexible wire 123 is slidably inserted into the tube 126, and the tube 126 is held by the tube holding portion 127 so that the flexible wire 123 is moved forward and backward along a fixed locus. Therefore, the driving force of the first drive motor 110 can be appropriately transmitted to the first movable body 117, and the first movable body 117 can be accurately operated.

  Further, the first slide plate 121 slides in the left-right direction within the movement range of the pin 112 a of the cam plate 112 that is rotated by driving the first drive motor 110, and the flexible movement is performed within the movement range of the first slide plate 121. The sex wire 123 moves back and forth. That is, the range in which the flexible wire 123 moves forward and backward is only a limited short distance. Therefore, when the first movable body 117 is directly connected to the end portion of the flexible wire 123, the movement range of the pin 112a of the cam plate 112 is increased in order to move the first movable body 117 greatly (that is, It is necessary to increase the diameter of the cam plate 112, leading to an increase in the size of the apparatus. Therefore, in the embodiment, since the plurality of rack members 131 and 134 and the gears 132 and 133 are used as the conversion means 130 provided in the first movable body 117, the advance / retreat range of the flexible wire 123 is narrow. However, the first movable body 117 can be greatly operated, and the operation effect of the first movable body 117 is not reduced.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 18, the tube holding part 127 guides the flexible wire 123 to advance and retreat in the arrangement direction (left-right direction) of the first drive motor 110 by the first holding guide part 128, and the second holding part. Since the guide portion 129 guides the flexible wire 123 to move back and forth in the movement direction (front-rear direction) of the rack member 131, the first slide plate 121 slides in the left-right direction by driving the first drive motor 110. Thus, the end of the flexible wire 123 on the first movable body 117 side moves forward and backward in the movement direction of the rack member 131, and the driving force of the first drive motor 110 can be transmitted to the rack member 131 appropriately.

  Further, the second movable bodies 118, 118 arranged at positions shifted to the right side of the third opening 97 in the frame-shaped case body 91 are arranged in the frame-shaped case body 91. The second drive motor 111 disposed at the upper right position on the position side is connected and connected via the second slide plate 141. That is, since the second movable bodies 118 and 118 and the second drive motor 111 are provided at positions close to the frame-shaped case body 91, simple second drive transmission means 140 including the second slide plate 141. Can be connected. Therefore, it is not necessary to increase the upper frame portion 92 (the interval between the special symbol display device 30 and the ball tank 12a) when installing the second drive transmission means 140, and the special symbol display device 30 is enlarged to provide a game effect. Can be improved.

  Further, like the movable decorative member 115 of the embodiment, the first movable body 117 and the second movable bodies 118, 118 are located at the same position (in the embodiment, the upper right portion of the third opening 97 in the frame-shaped case body 91). In the case where the movable bodies 117, 118, and 118 are caused to perform different operations using separate drive motors 110 and 111, the movable bodies 117, 118, and 118 and the drive motors 110 and 111 are disposed. Are connected by a link mechanism using only the slide plates 121, 141, gears, and the like, it is difficult for the link mechanisms corresponding to the movable bodies 117, 118, 118 to interfere with each other because of space. Therefore, in the embodiment, the first movable body 117 and the first drive motor 110 are connected using the flexible wire 123, so that the first movable body 117 is realized while realizing reliable drive transmission. The space required for the first drive transmission means 120 connecting the first drive motor 110 and the first drive motor 110 can be reduced to a minimum. In addition, by adopting the second drive transmission means 140 using the second slide plate 141 for the second movable bodies 118, 118, a plurality of members can be easily operated at a time. In addition, by appropriately changing the configuration of the second drive transmission means 140, it is possible to cause the second movable bodies 118 and 118 to perform complicated operations. That is, the first drive transmission means 120 using the flexible wire 123 is used for the first movable body 117, and the second drive transmission means 140 using the slide plate 141 is used for the second movable body 118. By using this, it is possible to install a plurality of movable bodies 117, 118, 118 that perform different operations at the same position.

(About decorative members)
Next, the operation of the decorative member 37 when playing with the pachinko machine 10 assembled as described above will be described.

  Since the first opening 20a of the game board 20 is opened at a position biased to the right side in the guide rail 20c, the board surface of the game board 20 in which the decoration member 37 and the game effect device 90 are assembled. The pachinko ball P struck is flowed down in the game area 21 defined from the upper position of the decorative member 37 to the left position and the lower position, and the first and A special symbol variation game is started on the special symbol display device 30 by winning the second winning ports 24 and 25. Here, since the ball receiving opening 55 opened to the game area 21 is opened at a position corresponding to the composite gate portion 51 provided on the left side of the decorative member 37, the pachinko ball P flowing down the game area 21 is provided. Can enter the composite gate portion 51 of the decorative member 37 through the ball receiving port 55.

  The pachinko ball P that has entered the composite gate unit 51 from the ball receiving port 55 is (1) a route that passes through the normal symbol operation port 52 that triggers the normal symbol display unit 46 to start the normal symbol variation game, (2) One of the routes passing through the first ball inlet 54 for guiding the pachinko ball P to the stage 65 provided at the lower part of the decorative member 37 is passed. In other words, the pachinko ball P that has entered the composite gate portion 51 is expected to win the normal symbol operating port 52 that triggers opening of the opening and closing members 26, 26 of the start winning device 23 or the start winning device 23. There is a possibility of passing through any one of the first ball entrances 54 that guide the pachinko ball P to the high stage 65, thereby attracting interest in the movement of the pachinko ball P and increasing the interest of the game.

  Further, in the composite gate portion 51, the normal symbol operating port 52 and the first ball inlet 54 are adjacent to each other at an interval at which the pachinko ball P cannot pass. The decorative member 37 itself can be downsized without reducing the second opening 39 on which the display surface 31 of the 30 faces. Accordingly, the game area 21 where the pachinko ball P flows down can be widened on the game board 20 while securing the above-described two routes through which the pachinko ball P that has entered the composite gate portion 51 can pass. Further, the degree of freedom of the mounting position of the windmill is increased, and the pachinko balls P flowing down in the game area 21 can be appropriately guided by the game nails and the windmill.

  Furthermore, in the embodiment, a ball receiving portion 58 having a second ball inlet 59 that opens to the left and guides the pachinko ball P to the stage 65 is provided below the composite gate portion 51. That is, since the second ball inlet 59 is formed so as to open to the ball outlet 61a side of the normal symbol operating port 52, the pachinko ball discharged through the normal symbol operating port 52 and discharged into the game area 21. P may also pass through the second sphere inlet 59. As described above, even if the pachinko sphere P does not pass through the normal symbol operating port 52 and the first sphere inlet 54, or the pachinko sphere P passes through the normal symbol operating port 52, the second sphere entrance There is a possibility of being guided to the stage 65 via 59, and the expectation for the movement of the pachinko ball P can be maintained.

  In addition, as described above, the decorative member 37 is arranged to be biased to the right side of the game board 20, so that the special symbol display device 30 can be further enlarged while the game area 21 where the pachinko balls P flow down is secured. obtain. At this time, the composite gate portion 51 (the normal symbol operating port 52 and the first ball inlet 54) and the ball receiving portion 58 (the second ball inlet 59) are respectively connected to the left side of the decorative member 37, that is, the game board 20. By providing the game area 21 on the side where the game area 21 is widely secured, the functions of the composite gate portion 51 and the ball receiving portion 58 are not impaired.

  In the embodiment, the ball receiving portion 58 is disposed below the first ball inlet 54, and the pachinko ball P that has passed through the first ball inlet 54 is received by the ball receiving portion 58. That is, each of the pachinko balls P that has passed through the first ball inlet 54 and the second ball inlet 59 is guided to the stage 65 through the ball guide passage 61 that communicates with the ball receiver 58. In this way, the pachinko balls P that have passed through the first ball inlet 54 and the second ball inlet 59 are once assembled in the ball receiving portion 58, so that the ball guide passage 61 is formed for each ball inlet. The configuration of the decorative member 37 can be simplified, and the large special symbol display device 30 can be used with the second opening 39 formed in the decorative member 37 being maximized.

  Further, in the stage 65, the first ball rolling stage unit 73 and the second ball rolling stage unit 80 having different rolling patterns of the pachinko balls P and different expectations of the pachinko balls P being guided to the start winning device 23, Are arranged side by side in the left-right width direction, and the pachinko balls P move between the ball rolling stage portions 73 and 80 via the first ball rolling passage 66 communicating with the ball outlet 61a of the ball guide passage 61. Since it is configured to be able to do so, it is possible to produce an effect that makes the most of the stage 65 in the horizontal direction.

  That is, in the first ball rolling stage unit 73, the pachinko ball P that has moved from the first ball guiding portion 69 of the first ball rolling passage 66 to the second ball rolling passage 74 passes through the second ball rolling passage 74. It rolls so as to swing in the left-right direction and is finally discharged from the first ball discharge portion 77 to the game area 21. Here, since the first ball discharge portion 77 is formed at a position shifted to the left side from the position where the start winning device 23 is disposed, the pachinko ball P discharged from the first ball discharge portion 77 is started. The possibility of winning the winning device 23 is low. On the other hand, in the second ball rolling stage unit 80, the pachinko balls P that have moved from the second ball guiding portion 70 of the first ball rolling passage 66 to the communication passage 81 roll to the front end of the communication passage 81 as they are. It moves and is discharged from the second ball discharge port to the game area 21, or falls from the drop openings 82 and 82 in the middle of rolling and discharged from the third ball discharge unit 89 to the game area 21 through the ball guide path 83. Is done.

  Here, the second ball discharge portion 84 is formed at a position shifted to the right side from the position where the start winning device 23 is disposed, and the pachinko ball P discharged from the second ball discharge portion 84 is the start winning prize. Although the possibility of winning a prize in the device 23 is low, the third ball discharge portion 89 is formed immediately above the position where the start winning device 23 is disposed. There is a high possibility that the pachinko ball P discharged from the game will win the start winning device 23. That is, the pachinko ball P guided onto the stage 65 from the ball guide passage 61 is discharged to the game area 21 via the first ball rolling stage portion 73 or via the second ball rolling stage portion 80. Since the profit given to the player depends on whether or not it is discharged to the game area 21, the player's interest in the pachinko ball P rolling on the stage 65 can be strongly attracted.

  Here, in the second ball rolling stage unit 80, as described above, the pachinko ball P wins the start winning device 23 when it passes through the communication passage 81 as it is and is discharged from the second ball discharge unit 84. On the other hand, there is a low possibility that the pachinko ball P will win the start winning device 23 when it falls from the communication passage 81 to the ball guide passage 61 and is discharged from the third ball discharge portion 89. It has become. That is, in the configuration of the conventional stage 65, when it is discharged straight from the specific discharge port or guide groove to the game area 21, it is easy to win the start winning device 23, and the rolling direction deviates and falls during the movement. In general, it is generally configured so that it is difficult to win the start winning device 23. According to the configuration of the stage 65 of the embodiment, an unexpected production different from the conventional one is realized. At this time, the stage 65 is formed asymmetrically from the first ball rolling stage unit 73 and the second ball rolling stage unit 80 so that the pachinko ball P rolls (the first ball rolling stage unit). 73 and the second ball rolling stage unit 80) can enjoy the movement of different pachinko balls P on the stage 65, and thus there is an advantage that the game effects can be diversified.

  Further, in the embodiment, the decoration member 37 is arranged on the right side of the game board 20 and the game area 21 is provided on the left side of the game board 20 so that the pachinko ball flowing down the game area 21 is provided. When P is bounced by a game nail and arrives directly on the stage 65, the possibility of the pachinko ball P entering the first ball rolling stage portion 73 increases. That is, the pachinko ball P which is bounced from the game area 21 with a game nail and arrives at the stage 65 and the first and second ball inlets 54 and 59 of the decoration member 37 and reaches the stage 65. The difference in expectation for winning the start winning device 23 can be clearly distinguished from the pachinko ball P that may move to the two-ball rolling stage unit 80. Therefore, it is possible to strongly attract the player's interest as to whether the pachinko ball P passes through the first and second ball inlets 54 and 59 while flowing down the game area 21.
