Blinks and the right LED is turned on to indicate that the number of reserved maps is 3, and the left and right LEDs are flashed to indicate that the number of reserved maps is 4.

  Further, the normal symbol change display on the normal symbol display 44 stops after a predetermined period of time, and when the display result of the normal symbol at the time of the stop becomes “hit”, the movable piece 71 of the lower start port 73 is moved for a predetermined time. Open (for example, 0.5 seconds). On the other hand, when the display result of the normal symbol display 44 becomes “losing”, the control is not performed to open the movable piece 71, but the lower starting port 73 is controlled so as not to accept the game ball. The upper start port 72 is in a state where it can accept a game ball.

  That is, the lower start port 73 is controlled to be opened for a predetermined time (for example, 0.5 seconds) when the display result that is a hit on the normal symbol display 44 is stopped and displayed. Specifically, the normal electric accessory solenoid 71a is moved and the movable piece 71 is controlled to be in the open state based on the display result corresponding to the normal symbol display 44 being stopped. Then, when the predetermined period has elapsed, the ordinary electric accessory solenoid 71a is moved again to control the movable piece 71 to the closed state. By controlling the movable piece 71 to the open state, the game ball can be received in the lower start port 73, and by controlling the movable piece 71 to the closed state, the game ball cannot be received.

  In addition, when a game ball flowing down the game area 12 wins the upper start opening 72 or the lower start opening 73, the special symbol display 41 can start the variation display of the special symbol (for example, it is not in the big hit game) State, and special symbols and decoration symbols are not being displayed in a variable state), the special symbol display 41 starts the special symbol variation display, and the image display device 42 starts the decorative symbol variation display. Then, after the predetermined period has elapsed, the special symbol variation display on the special symbol display 41 and the decorative symbol variation display on the image display device 42 are stopped, and the display result is derived.

  In the present embodiment, two start winning openings, an upper start opening 72 and a lower start opening 73, are provided as winning openings for which the variation display of special symbols is permitted. The number is not limited to these, and for example, only one of the upper start port 72 and the lower start port 73 may be provided. Further, a predetermined number (for example, three) of game balls are paid out based on the fact that a game ball wins the upper start port 72 and is detected by the upper start port switch 72a, and the game ball is discharged to the lower start port 73. A predetermined number (for example, four) of game balls is paid out based on the fact that is won and detected by the lower start port switch 73a.

  When a game ball is detected by the upper start opening switch 72a and the lower start opening switch 73a, the big hit determination random number is extracted from the counter that updates the predetermined big hit determination random number. Further, when the special symbol display 41 starts the special symbol variation display (and when the image display device 42 starts the decorative symbol variation display), whether or not the big hit is determined based on the big hit determination random number. As a result of the variable display, lighting of the LED of the special symbol display 41 is controlled in a manner corresponding to the determination result, and a decorative symbol is derived and displayed on the image display device 42. Specifically, when it is determined that the game is a big hit, the two LEDs of the special symbol display 41 are lit and displayed in a specific manner (big hit symbol), and the specific display of the decorative symbol is displayed on the image display device 42. When the result (big hit symbol: combination of the same identification information (symbol)) is derived and displayed and determined to be out of place, the two LEDs of the special symbol display 41 are different from a specific mode (out of symbol) ) And a display result that is different from the specific display result on the image display device 42 (missing symbol: symbols other than jackpot symbol, in this embodiment, at least two or more types of identification information (symbol)) Derived). Thus, the display result of the special symbol on the special symbol display device 41 corresponds to the display result of the decorative symbol on the image display device 42.

  Further, the decorative symbols that are variably displayed on the image display device 42 are symbols for effect different from the special symbols that are variably displayed on the special symbol display 41. The contents are displayed to the player with a more enhanced effect using a decorative pattern for performance. In other words, when the two LEDs of the special symbol display 41 are lit and displayed in a specific manner, the transition to the big hit gaming state is controlled, but by any chance, the display result of the decorative symbol on the image display device 42 is the specific display result. Even if the two LEDs of the special symbol display 41 are turned on in a manner different from the specific manner, the transition control to the big hit gaming state is not performed.

  Furthermore, in this embodiment, the specific mode to be lit and displayed by the two LEDs of the special symbol display 41 is a special mode (probability variation symbol), a non-special mode (non-probability variation symbol) different from the special mode, When the two LEDs of the special symbol display 41 are lit and displayed in a special mode among the specific modes, the special display result (probability change) of the specific display result is displayed on the image display device 42 as the display result of the decorative symbol. In this embodiment, in the case where the combination of the same odd number of symbols) is derived and displayed, and the two LEDs of the special symbol display 41 are lit and displayed in a non-special mode among the specific modes, the image display device In 42, a non-special display result (non-probability variable symbol: in this embodiment, a combination of the same even symbols) different from the special display result among the specific display results is derived and displayed as the display result of the decorative symbol. When the two LEDs of the special symbol display 41 are lit and displayed in a special manner, after the jackpot gaming state is finished, a high probability state in which the jackpot is determined with a higher probability than the normal state and the short time state described later (this implementation) In this mode, control is performed so that a big hit is determined with a probability of 1 / 63.1 in the high probability state, and a jackpot is determined with a probability of 1 / 315.5 in the normal state and the short time state.

  On the other hand, when the two LEDs of the special symbol display 41 are lit and displayed in a non-special manner, the special symbol display 41 changes the special symbol for a predetermined number of times (for example, 100 times) after the big hit gaming state is finished. Until it is executed, the fluctuation time from the start of special symbol variation display to the special symbol stop display, and the normal symbol display 44 from the start of normal symbol variation display until normal symbol stop display The fluctuation time is controlled to a shorter time when the time is shortened than the normal state. The decorative symbol variation display by the image display device 42 is synchronized with the special symbol variation display by the special symbol indicator 41. Specifically, when the special symbol display 41 starts to display the variation of the special symbol, the image display device 42 starts to display the variation of the decorative symbol, and when the special symbol display 41 stops and displays the special symbol. The decorative design is stopped and displayed by the display device 42. That is, the variation time of the special symbol by the special symbol display device 41 and the variation time of the decorative symbol by the image display device 42 are the same time, and the variation time of the special symbol by the special symbol display device 41 is shortened in a short time state. As a result, the decorative symbol variation time by the image display device 42 is also shortened.

  Further, in the time-short state, control for further extending the opening time for the lower start port 73 to be in the open state is longer than the normal state (in this embodiment, 0.5 seconds in the normal state and 5 seconds in the time-short state). ) And control for increasing the probability that the result of the normal symbol variation display on the normal symbol display 44 will be a hit (in this embodiment, a red lighting display). The normal state is a gaming state different from the high probability state and the short time state. In the short-time state, the probability of being determined to be a big hit is the same as that in the normal state. Therefore, the normal state and the short-time state may be collectively referred to as a low probability state.

  In addition to the above-described example, in the short time state, the special symbol display 41 and the image display device 42 are controlled so that the variation time of the special symbol and the decorative symbol is shorter than the normal state. Control for shortening the variation time from the normal state, control for increasing the probability that the result of the variation display of the normal symbol on the normal symbol display unit 44 becomes a hit, a start port provided with the movable piece 71 (in this example, Control for extending the opening time during which the lower starting port 73) is opened longer than the normal state, and the number of times that the starting port provided with the movable piece 71 (in this example, the lower starting port 73) is opened. Any one of the increasing controls or any combination (or all) may be executed.

  In this embodiment, the left, middle, and right decorative symbols corresponding to the three display areas of the image display device 42 are controlled to stop in the order of the left decorative symbol → the right decorative symbol → the middle decorative symbol. . The stop symbol of the decorative symbol is a state in which all the decorative symbols of the left, middle and right are stopped and displayed by stopping the display of the middle decorative symbol after starting the variable display of the left, middle and right decorative symbols. A combination of symbols.

  In addition, while the special symbol display 41 is executing the variation display of the special symbol or when the big hit gaming state is being executed, the game ball is won at the upper start port 72 or the lower start port 73, and the upper start port switch The jackpot determination random number extracted based on the game ball detected by 72a and the lower start opening switch 73a (predetermined condition is satisfied) can be stored up to a predetermined number (four in this embodiment). The number of jackpot determination random numbers to be played (number of special figure hold memory) is displayed by a special figure hold memory LED 47. As described above, the special figure storage memory LED is composed of two LEDs on the left and right. In this example, the left-hand LED is turned on to indicate that the special figure reserved memory number is 1, and the left and right two LEDs are turned on to indicate that the special figure reserved memory number is 2, and the left LED Blinks and the right LED is turned on to indicate that the number of special figure hold memory is 3, and by blinking the two LEDs on the left and right, the special figure hold memory number is four. As described above, the special figure holding memory LED 47 has a predetermined number of established conditions (a game ball is won at the upper start opening 72 or the lower start opening 73), but the number of memories that have not yet started the special symbol variation display (special display). The figure holding storage number) is displayed.

  In this embodiment, in the big hit gaming state based on the lighting of the two LEDs of the special symbol display 41 in a specific manner, the movable pieces arranged on the left and right sides of the big winning opening by the big winning opening solenoid 76a. It rotates to control the open state so that the game ball can be received in the special winning opening. Then, when a predetermined time (for example, 30 seconds) elapses after the grand prize opening is controlled to be in the open state, or when a predetermined number (for example, 10) of game balls have won the grand prize opening, The movable solenoids arranged on both the left and right sides of the big prize opening are again rotated by the mouth solenoid 76a to control the closed state in which the game balls cannot be received in the big prize opening. One round (1R) in the big hit gaming state is from the control to the open state in which the game ball can be received in the big winning opening until the closed state in which the game ball cannot be received in the big winning opening. The big hit gaming state ends when a predetermined number of rounds (for example, 15 times) are executed.

  As described above, the state display LED 43 is driven and controlled in a manner corresponding to the gaming state. Specifically, drive control is performed in a state in which the light is turned off in the normal state, a state in which the light is turned on in blue in the short time state, a state in which the light is turned on in red in the probability variation state, and a state in which the red light is flashed in the big hit gaming state. As a result, it is possible to grasp which gaming state the player is in.

  Next, with reference to FIG. 5 to FIG. 9, the game board and the rear surface (side on which the game area 12 is not formed) mechanism that is a main part of the present embodiment will be described in detail. FIG. 5 is an exploded perspective view seen from the front side of the game board 4, and FIG. 6 is an enlarged perspective view seen from the front side of the back decoration member 50.

  In FIG. 5, the game board 4 is fitted into a game board set frame 4 a made of synthetic resin that can be mounted on the game board mounting frame 9, and an opening 4 d provided in the game board set frame 4 a, and in the game area 12. A transparent resin plate 4b that constitutes part or all of the game board, and a game board decoration member 4c that is fixed to the front surface of the game board set frame 4a and decorates the outer periphery of the game area 12 outside.

  The game board set frame 4a is formed of synthetic resin so that the outer peripheral shape thereof is substantially rectangular, and a deformed polygonal opening 4d is opened, leaving only the outer periphery. Inside the opening 4d, contact protrusions (not shown) that come into contact with the back surface of the transparent resin plate 4b when a transparent resin plate 4b described in detail below is fitted are formed at appropriate intervals. Yes. When the transparent resin plate 4b is fitted into the opening 4d while being in contact with the contact protrusion, the transparent resin plate 4b and the front side of the game board set frame 4a are flush with each other. Further, the game board set frame 4a is formed with an opening 4e at the center of the lower part thereof for guiding the game balls discharged from the out port 77 to the rear surface of the game board set frame 4a. Further, the game board set frame 4a is integrally formed with synthetic resin by mounting holes, bosses and the like for attaching the game board decoration member 4c attached to the front side of the game board set frame 4a and the rear decoration member 50 attached to the rear side. Is formed.

  By the way, the outer shape of the game board set frame 4a integrally formed of synthetic resin as described above is formed to be the same as the outer shape of a conventionally used plywood game board. Further, the thickness dimension W1 in the front-rear direction (see FIG. 8) is also formed to have the same thickness dimension (about 20 mm) as a conventional plywood game board. For this reason, in the case of the illustrated pachinko machine 1, replacement from the conventional plywood to the game board 4 according to the present embodiment, or vice versa, can be easily performed.

  The back surface decoration member 50 attached to the rear side (the side where the game area 12 is not formed) of the game board set frame 4a is equal to or the outer shape of the deformed polygonal opening 4d formed in the game board set frame 4a. The four corners of the back decoration member 50 are fixed to the back of the corners of the four corners of the game board set frame 4a with screws or the like and attached from the rear side of the game board set frame. As a result, the deformed polygonal opening 4d formed in the game board set frame 4a is closed. Further, an opening 50a is formed in the center portion of the back decoration member 50, and the image display device 42 is attached from the rear side of the opening 50a as shown in FIG. The image display device 42 is formed integrally with a liquid crystal display substrate 120 that is positioned on the rear surface side (the image non-display side) of the image display device 42 and controls the display of the image display device 42. Thus, the image displayed on the image display device 42 can be visually recognized by attaching the image display device 42 from the rear surface side of the opening 50a of the back decoration member 50.

  In this example, the image displayed on the image display device 42 is configured to be visible through the opening 50a formed in the central portion of the back decoration member 50, but is displayed on the image display device 40. Any other configuration may be used as long as the image can be visually recognized. For example, the central portion of the back decoration member 50 (in this example, the portion corresponding to the opening 50a) is formed of a transparent resin plate, and a liquid crystal display unit is attached from the rear surface side of the transparent resin plate to display on the image display device 42. The liquid crystal display unit may be arranged inside the back decoration member 50 and an opening for connecting a wiring or the like to the liquid crystal display substrate 120 may be provided in the back decoration member 50. You may comprise so that the image displayed on the image display apparatus 42 can be visually recognized by forming.

  The back decoration member 50 is three-dimensionally formed by arranging a plurality of members on a box-shaped member having a predetermined thickness in the front-rear direction (see FIG. 8). Specifically, a rear area decoration body 51 is arranged which is inclined rearward from the front upper part to the left side part and the lower front part of the back decoration member 50 and is decorated in a three-dimensional manner in the image of a state in which a plurality of waves are pushed together. The The back area decoration body 51 is formed of a light blue synthetic resin having translucency, and a game board upper left LED 51a, a game board left middle LED 51b, and a game board lower LED 51c are incorporated therein so as to be light decorated. It has become. In addition, a lower left decorative member 52 that is three-dimensionally decorated in the image of splashing is disposed on the lower left surface of the back region decorative body 51. The lower left decorative member 52 is synthesized from a white synthetic resin having translucency, and a game board lower left LED 52a is incorporated therein so as to be light decorated.

  In addition, an upper left decorative member 53 that is three-dimensionally shaped (having a predetermined thickness in the front-rear direction) is arranged on the upper left surface of the back region decorative body 51 in the shape of a character “pro golfer monkey”. The upper left decorative member 53 is formed of a synthetic resin having translucency on the front surface, and a game board left LED 53a is incorporated in the interior of the upper left decorative member 53 so as to be light decorated. Further, a lower right decorative member 54 that is three-dimensionally shaped like a golf ball (formed in a spherical shape with a predetermined radius) is disposed at the lower right portion of the back surface decorative member 50. The lower right decorative member 54 is formed of a light-transmitting white synthetic resin, and a game board lower right decorative LED 54a is incorporated therein so as to be light decorated. Further, the lower right decorative member 54 is disposed so as to protrude forward of the transparent resin plate 4b from an opening 40b of a regulating wall member 40 described later.

  In this way, the back surface decoration member 50 includes the back surface decoration body 51, the bottom left decoration member 52, the top left decoration member 53, and the bottom right decoration member 54 that are formed in three dimensions, and the surface thereof undulates in the front-rear direction, The back decoration member 50 forms a space with a three-dimensional effect.

  In addition, the back decoration member 50 includes a plurality of LEDs other than those described above, and is decorated with light. A main control board 101 for controlling the progress of the game is also attached to the rear side (the side where the game area 12 is not formed) of the game board set frame 4a.

  The transparent resin plate 4b fitted to the game board set frame 4a is formed of a transparent synthetic resin having an outer peripheral shape along the inner shape in the opening 4d of the game board set frame 4a. Examples of the transparent synthetic resin include an acrylic resin material, a polycarbonate resin material, and a polyarylate resin material. These synthetic resins are known as being highly transparent and hard. Further, in the transparent resin plate 4b, an opening 4f is opened at a central portion corresponding to the front of the image display device 42, and the sharpness of the image displayed on the image display device 42 is improved. In addition, an opening 4g is formed in the lower center of the transparent resin plate 4b for guiding the game balls won in the upper start port 72, the lower start port 73 and the general winning ports 13a to 13d to the rear surface of the transparent resin plate 4b. In this example, the transparent resin plate 4b is formed of a transparent synthetic resin. However, the game board set frame 4a may be formed of a transparent synthetic resin, or the transparent resin plate 4b is formed of a transparent synthetic resin. The game board set frame 4a may be formed of conventional plywood.

  In addition, on the front surface of the transparent resin plate 4b (the side on which the game area 12 is formed), a regulating wall member 40 that is three-dimensionally shaped like a rock is erected. The opening 4f opened in the transparent resin plate 4b substantially matches the outer peripheral shape of the regulating wall member 40. The regulation wall member 40 has a predetermined thickness (for example, 10 mm) from the surface of the transparent resin plate 4 b and is erected on the front surface of the transparent resin plate 4 b to partition the game area 12. In other words, the game ball flowing down the game area 12 collides with the restriction wall member 40 and changes its flow direction, and is prevented from entering the opening 4f. A central portion of the regulation wall member 40 is provided with a transparent panel 40a formed in a plate shape with a transparent resin. The transparent panel 40a is positioned in front of the opening 50a of the back decoration member 50, and makes it possible to visually recognize an image displayed on the image display device 42. In addition, an opening 40b is formed in the lower right portion of the regulating wall member 40, and the lower right decorative member 54 of the back decorative member 50 described above is configured to protrude. In addition, an upper right decorative member 40c that is three-dimensionally shaped like a hawk (having a predetermined thickness in the front-rear direction) is provided at the upper right portion of the regulating wall member 40. The upper right decorative member 40c is partly formed of a synthetic resin having translucency (a part of a hawk's eye), and an upper right decorative LED 40d is built in and is light decorated.

  Further, a plate-like panel 70 is attached to the front surface (the side where the game area 12 is formed) of the opening 4g of the transparent resin plate 4b, and the opening 4g is blocked so that the game ball does not enter the opening 4g. . In addition, a plurality of winning ports are formed by the upper starting port 72, the lower starting port 73, and the general winning ports 13a to 13c that are integrally attached to the plate-like panel 70. The transparent resin plate 4b has a large number of mounting holes for fixing a large number of obstacle nails, the regulating wall member 40, the plate-like panel 70, and the guide rail 11 on the surface thereof.

  Further, the thickness dimension W2 of the transparent resin plate 4b in the front-rear direction is set to substantially half (specifically, 11 mm) of the thickness dimension W1 of the game board set frame 4a. In this case, when the transparent resin plate 4b is thin, as described above, a structure for attaching the obstruction nail and the regulating wall member 40 attached to the front surface of the transparent resin plate 4b with sufficient holding force is used. Although it is difficult to do so, there is a drawback in that the amount of protrusion of the game board 4 increases if the dimension W3 of the space formed on the rear surface side of the transparent resin plate 4b is taken sufficiently when the dimension is too thick. It is. That is, the thickness dimension W2 of the transparent resin plate 4b in the present embodiment can sufficiently secure the supporting force of various components attached to the surface of the transparent resin plate 4b, and the rear surface side of the transparent resin plate 4b. This is set in consideration of the fact that the dimension W3 of the space to be formed can be secured while suppressing the protruding amount of the rearmost end portion of the game board 4. Further, by forming the thickness dimension W2 in the front-rear direction of the transparent resin plate 4b to be thinner than the thickness dimension W1 in the front-rear direction of the game board set frame 4a, the thickness dimension W1 in the front-rear direction of the game board set frame 4a Compared to the case where the transparent resin plate 4b is formed with the same thickness in the front-rear direction, the overall weight of the game board 4 can be reduced.

  In addition, the thickness of the transparent resin plate 4b in the front-rear direction is smaller than that in the case where the transparent resin plate 4b is formed with the same thickness in the front-rear direction as the thickness dimension W1 of the game board set frame 4a. It is easy to visually recognize the back decoration member 50 arranged on the rear surface. Moreover, in the example mentioned above, it displays on the image display apparatus 42 by opening 4d in the center part of the transparent resin board 4b corresponding to the front of the image display apparatus 42 located in the rear surface side of the transparent resin board 4b. Although it is configured to improve the sharpness of the image, even if the central portion of the transparent resin plate 4b corresponding to the front of the image display device 42 is not penetrated, the game board set frame 4a Compared to the case where the transparent resin plate 4b is formed with the same thickness dimension in the front-rear direction as the thickness dimension W1 in the front-rear direction, the transparent resin plate 4b is disposed on the rear surface by a smaller thickness W2 in the front-rear direction. The sharpness of the image displayed on the image display device 42 can be increased.

  Although it is difficult to visually recognize the back decoration member 50 as compared with the case where the game board 4 is configured from the game board set frame 4a, the transparent resin plate 4b, and the game board decoration member 4c, the game board set You may use the game board 4 integrally formed with the frame 4a, the transparent resin board 4b, and the transparent synthetic resin.

  The game board decoration member 4c attached to the front side of the game board set frame 4a is formed of synthetic resin in substantially the same shape as the game board set frame 4a in order to decorate the outer peripheral portion of the game board set frame 4a. In addition, a circular opening 4h is formed in the game board decoration member 4c so as to surround the game area 12 constituted by the transparent resin plate 4b. A guide rail 11 is integrally attached along the opening. It has been. However, the inner rail is positioned in front of the transparent resin plate 4b when the game board decoration member 4c is attached to the game board set frame 4a. It is fixed to 4b.

  Furthermore, by attaching the game board decoration member 4c to the game board set frame 4a with screws or the like, a part of the game board decoration member 4c comes into contact with a part of the front side of the transparent resin plate 4b, and the transparent resin plate 4b. Is prevented from dropping forward from the opening 4d of the game board set frame 4a. More specifically, as described above, since the opening 4d formed in the game board set frame 4a has a deformed polygonal shape when viewed from the front, the opening edge shape of the opening 4d By forming the outer peripheral edge of the transparent resin plate 4b so as to coincide with the opening of the transparent resin plate 4b, the fitting of the transparent resin plate 4b with respect to the opening is uniquely determined. It is flush with the set frame 4a so as not to move in the rotational direction. In this state, when the game board decoration member 4c is fixed with screws or the like from the front of the game board set frame 4a, the back surface of at least the four corners of the game board decoration member 4c is in contact with the front surface of the transparent resin plate 4b. It becomes. For this reason, the transparent resin plate 4b is firmly fixed to the opening 4d of the game board set frame 4a. In this way, the transparent resin plate 4b can be easily disassembled when discarding the gaming machine by abutting and clamping the transparent resin plate 4b to the gaming board set frame 4a at the four corners of the gaming board decoration member 4c. Because it is easy to recycle, and has a structure in which the transparent resin plate 4b and the game board decoration member 4c are hardly contacted and clamped in the upper and lower and left and right areas, only in the four corners, the gaming area There is an advantage that 12 can be taken widely. Of course, in this case, the upper and lower regions and the left and right regions may not be contacted at all, but may be slightly held.

  Even if the opening 4d of the game board set frame 4a is not formed into a polygonal deformation, the mounting position is uniquely determined and rotated when the transparent resin plate 4b is fitted into the opening 4d of the game board set frame 4a. A structure having a positioning portion that does not operate (for example, the opening 4d of the game board set frame 4a is made circular, a positioning projection or a positioning hole is formed on the front surface of the abutting projection piece, and a positioning hole is formed on the back surface of the corresponding transparent resin plate 4b. Or a structure in which positioning protrusions are formed, or a structure in which a notch for positioning the transparent resin plate 4b and the game board set frame 4a and an engaging protrusion to be engaged therewith are formed.

  Thus, the transparent resin plate 4b having the regulation wall member 40 and the plate-like panel 70 attached to the front side is fitted into the opening 4d of the game board set frame 4a, and the game board decoration member 4c is moved from the front of the game board set frame 4a. The game board 4 is formed by attaching the back decoration member 50 to which the image display device 42 and the liquid crystal display board 120 are attached and the main control board 101 from the rear side of the game board set frame 4a. As shown in the figure, the image displayed on the back decoration member 50 and the image display device 42 located on the rear side of the transparent resin plate 4b from the front side of the game board 4 can be visually recognized. FIG. 7 is a front view of the game board 4, and FIG. 8 is a cross-sectional view taken along the line AA of the game board 4. In FIG. 7, the indication of the obstacle nail implanted in the transparent resin plate 4 b is omitted in order to make it easier to visually recognize the back decoration member 50.

  As shown in FIG. 7 to FIG. 9, the back decoration member 50 extends over all areas including the game area 12 surrounded by the outer rail of the guide rail 11, in other words, all areas visible from the opening window 30. A back decoration member 50 is formed and disposed on the rear surface side of the transparent resin plate 4b. Therefore, a space with a three-dimensional effect in the front-rear direction is formed on the rear surface side of the game area 12 by the back decoration member 50, and the decoration effect of the game area 12 can be improved. Furthermore, the space with the three-dimensional effect in the front-rear direction formed by the back decoration member 50 is also formed behind the area where the game ball can roll in the game area 12, so that it protrudes from the surface of the game area 12. The decoration effect can be improved also in the game area 12 in which the restriction wall member 40 is not formed. Further, as described above, in this example, since a plurality of types of LEDs are incorporated in the back surface decoration member 50, it is possible to further improve the decoration effect.

  In addition, in this example, although the back surface decoration member 50 is arrange | positioned in all the area | regions visually recognizable from the opening window 30, it is not restricted to this. For example, the back decoration member 50 may be arranged over the entire game area 12, or the back decoration member 50 may be arranged in an area in the game area 12 where the regulation wall member 40 and the plate-like panel 70 are not provided. You may comprise so that it may arrange. That is, the back decoration member 50 is arranged at least on the entire rear surface side of the game area 12 or on an area where no member is provided on the front surface side of the game area 12 in at least the rear surface side of the game area 12. Also good.

  Moreover, in this embodiment, the back surface decoration body 51, the upper left decoration member 53, and the lower right decoration member 54 which are formed in three dimensions are attached to the back decoration member 50 formed integrally with the transparent resin plate 4b. Although what was arrange | positioned at the rear surface side was shown, not only this but the member formed in three dimensions at the rear surface side of the transparent resin board 4b may be arrange | positioned separately. For example, you may make it attach so that the back surface area | region decoration body 51, the upper left decoration member 53, and the lower right decoration member 54 may each be arrange | positioned on the rear surface of the transparent resin board 4b. In this case, the back surface decorative body 51, the upper left decorative member 53, and the lower right decorative member 54 may be directly attached to the rear surface of the transparent resin plate 4b, or may be attached to the game board set frame 4a. Good.

  In addition, the restriction wall member 40 is erected on the surface of the game area 12 and a space with a three-dimensional effect in the front-rear direction is formed by the back decoration member 50 located on the rear side of the game area. A space with a three-dimensional effect is formed in a wide space from the front end portion of the regulating wall member 40 (the portion farthest from the surface of the game area 12, also referred to as the surface) to the surface of the back decoration member 50 located behind the game area 12. It can be formed and the decorative effect can be further improved.

  As described above, the game ball that has been launched by the launch control device 104 is released to the upper part of the game area 12 through the launch rail 15 and the guide rail 11, while colliding the game area 12 with the obstacle nail or the like. It flows down toward the out port 77. In such a gaming machine, by arranging a member or the like with a predetermined decoration in the gaming area 12, the gaming area 12 is partitioned and the decoration effect is improved. However, by arranging members or the like in the game area 12 to partition the game area 12, the area where the game ball can roll is narrowed and the degree of freedom of the game ball is reduced. In addition, in a normal gaming machine, the winning rate for the starting port etc. is changed by adjusting the obstacle nail, but by arranging a three-dimensionally formed member in the gaming area 12, the winning rate for the starting port etc. can be increased. It becomes difficult to change. That is, the number of members installed in the game area 12 and the installation area are limited. Therefore, in the conventional gaming machine, the decoration effect is improved by attaching a plate-like panel on which a character or the like is painted on the surface of the game area 12, but since it is painted on a flat plate-like panel, The decorative effect could not be enhanced compared to the case where the etc. were arranged.

  In the embodiment described above, the transparent resin plate 4b on which the game area 12 is formed is formed of a transparent synthetic resin, and the back surface is formed in three dimensions on the rear surface side (the side on which the game area 12 is not formed) of the transparent resin plate 4b. A rear decoration member 50 including an area decoration body 51, an upper left decoration member 53, and a lower right decoration member 54 is disposed, and a space with a three-dimensional feeling in the front-rear direction is formed on the rear surface side of the game area 12 by the rear decoration member 50. Therefore, the back of the area where the game ball can roll in the game area 12 can be three-dimensionally formed by the back decoration member 50, and the decoration effect can be improved without narrowing the rollable area of the game ball. In addition, since the degree of freedom of the game ball is not lowered, the winning rate to the starting port or the like can be changed relatively easily by adjusting the obstacle nail as in the conventional game machine. In addition, the depth of the game area 12 is widened compared to the case where a film or a plate-shaped design is placed on the front surface of the game area 12, and the player can feel a sense of depth, thereby improving the decoration effect.

  In recent years, a plurality of gaming machines such as pachinko machines 1 equipped with a large image display device have appeared. In such a gaming machine, a restriction wall member is installed around the image display device so that the game ball does not flow down in front of the image display device, thereby making it easy to visually recognize the image displayed on the image display device. ing. By enlarging the image display device, the restriction wall member also becomes larger, and the area where the game ball can roll in the game area becomes narrower. However, according to the present invention, the member is installed in an area other than the area partitioned by the restriction wall member. Therefore, it is possible to improve the decoration effect without doing so, which is effective for a gaming machine equipped with a large image display device.

  Further, the transparent resin plate 4b on which the game area 12 is formed is formed of a transparent synthetic resin, and the back area decoration body 51 is formed three-dimensionally on the rear surface side (the side on which the game area 12 is not formed) of the transparent resin plate 4b. Since the rear decoration member 50 including the upper left decoration member 53 and the lower right decoration member 54 is arranged so that the rolling of the game ball is not hindered, the rear decoration member 50 can also be arranged on the rear surface side of the guide rail 11. Specifically, the above-described upper left decorative member 53 is arranged so that a part thereof is located behind the guide rail 11. Therefore, a sense of depth can be expressed not only in the game area 12 where the game ball flows down, but also in the entire area visible by the opening window 30, and the decoration effect is improved.

  In the above-described example, since the image display device 42 is provided on the back decoration member 50, a stereoscopic effect can be further produced by the image displayed on the image display device 42 and the back decoration member 50, and the decoration effect is improved. . In the above-described example, the image display device 42 is attached from the back of the back decoration member 50. Therefore, the back region decoration body 51, the top left decoration member 53, and the bottom right decoration member 54 provided on the back decoration member 50 are images. A three-dimensional space having a width in the depth is formed by projecting forward from the display device 42, and the decoration effect can be improved.

  Moreover, in this embodiment, the back surface decoration member 50 is arrange | positioned so that it may not contact | abut on the rear surface of the transparent resin board 4b. That is, the back decoration member 50 is disposed at a position away from the rear surface of the transparent resin plate 4b. In other words, since the back decoration member 50 is arranged at a position deep from the surface of the game area 12, the depth width is widened compared to the case where a film-like panel or the like designed in the game area 12 is arranged, and Since a sense of depth can be felt, the decorative effect is enhanced. In addition, since the back decoration member 50 is not brought into contact with the transparent resin plate 4b, even when the transparent resin plate 4b vibrates due to the game ball flowing down the game area 12, the vibration of the transparent resin plate 4b is caused to vibrate. It is also possible to prevent vibration noises from propagating to. In addition, you may arrange | position so that a part of back decoration member 50 may contact | abut to the rear surface of the transparent resin board 4b. In this case, the definition of the back surface decoration member 50 can be improved.

  In the present invention, the back decoration member 50 is provided with a three-dimensionally formed member. However, the back decoration member may be provided with a design of a film or a plate-like panel. Good. In this case, a background resin member may be provided so as to be in contact with a position deeper than the rolling surface of the game ball (the surface of the game area 12) (the rear surface side of the transparent resin plate 4b, the transparent resin plate 4b). In order to arrange the back decoration member in the background resin member so as not to come into contact with the transparent resin plate 4b), compared with the case where a film-like plate-like panel or the like having a design is arranged in the game area 12 Since the depth is widened and the player can feel a sense of depth, the decoration effect is improved. Further, a part of the back decoration member may be constituted by a film, a plate-like panel or the like that has been designed, and the other part may be constituted by a three-dimensionally formed member.

  As mentioned above, according to this invention, the decoration effect of game machines, such as the pachinko machine 1, can be improved, without narrowing the area | region where the game ball in the game area 12 can roll. In addition, since the decoration effect can be enhanced without hindering the rolling of the game ball, the degree of freedom in designing the game machine is increased.
