Description

  The present invention relates to a gaming machine such as a pachinko gaming machine (generally also referred to as a “pachinko machine”) or a spinning-type gaming machine (generally also referred to as a “pachislot machine”).

  Conventionally, a gaming machine such as a pachinko machine is provided with a gaming board having a gaming area into which a gaming medium such as a gaming ball is driven. An obstacle nail, a windmill, and a winning opening are provided at appropriate locations on the gaming board, and when a gaming medium wins a prize opening, a predetermined number of gaming media are paid out.

  In this type of gaming machine, various effect images are displayed on the effect display device in accordance with the game state, so that a sense of expectation for winning can be given and the interest of the player can be enhanced. In addition to the effect display device, a movable body that mechanically moves in the vertical direction is provided (for example, Patent Document 1), or a movable body that rotates and moves in the front-rear direction (for example, Patent Document 2). In addition to the effects produced by the effect images, there is also proposed an effect that enhances the player's interest by performing effects by the movement of the movable body.

  In addition, a gaming machine is known in which an accessory having a stage that can enjoy the movement of a game ball by rolling the game ball is arranged in the game area (for example, Patent Documents 3 and 4). Specifically, a stage is provided that extends in the left-right direction, and has a curved shape that is high at both left and right ends and low at the center. The left and right ends are provided with a supply port for receiving a game ball that has been driven into the game area and supplying it to the stage, and the game ball supplied from the supply port rolls left and right on the stage. It is designed to entertain the eyes of the player.

JP 2004-066552 A Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 2005-040441 Japanese Unexamined Patent Publication No. 2004-057655 JP 2004-147900 A

  However, with conventional gaming machines, the size and amount of movement of the movable body that the player wants to pay attention to are relatively small, and even if the movable body is staged, the player may not notice it, or the stage movement may be difficult to understand. Then, the player cannot enjoy the movement of the movable body, and there is a fear that the interest is lowered.

  Further, the accessory only presents a rolling effect in which the game medium rolls left and right on the stage, and some players may feel bored when they become accustomed to the movement. As a result, some players quickly get bored with the game, and there is a possibility that the interest in the game cannot be enhanced.

  Therefore, in view of the above circumstances, an object of the present invention is to provide a gaming machine that can sufficiently enjoy a game and can prevent a player's interest from deteriorating.

With the first drive unit In the second drive unit, the guide member is arranged at a position opposite to the direction of the first movable body that is cantilevered by the guided member with respect to the axis of the guide member. A rotation preventing means disposed at a position substantially perpendicular to the direction of the second movable body cantilevered by the guided member with respect to the core, and held by the guided member that is prevented from rotating by the rotation preventing means. The plunger that rotates the supported shaft around the axis and is disposed at a position opposite to the side on which the movable body is held by the guided member via the support shaft, and moves forward and backward in a predetermined direction. A solenoid having a rotation means having a transmission means for converting a linear motion caused by advancing and retreating of the plunger in the solenoid into a rotational motion and transmitting it to the support shaft; and supporting one end side of the guide member in the guide member and the rotation prevention means A first support member made of resin having a plurality of positioning projections, a second support member made of resin having a plurality of positioning projections, supporting the other end side of the guide member in the guide member and the rotation preventing means, A plurality of positioning holes corresponding to the positioning projections of the first support member and the second support member, and the positioning holes and the positioning projections are fitted to each other to bring the first support member and the second support member into a predetermined position. A support surface for positioning and supporting, a mounting contact surface that is bent substantially at right angles to the support surface and has a mounting contact surface in which a screw can be inserted in the upper portion is provided on the upper side, a drive pulley, a rotation driving means, and a guide member And supporting the other end of the urging means whose one end is supported by the moving body at a position extending downward from the position where the driven pulley is disposed, and the movable body penetrating the game board Mouth And a base that is attached and fixed to the rear surface side of the game board via a mounting contact surface so that it can be seen through the inside of the main body frame shape, The first display mode is achieved by transmitting only the first color light composed of only one of the three primary colors of light projected from the light emitting means capable of projecting a plurality of types of light. The first transmission means and the first transmission means are arranged on a member made of a light-shielding member on the same surface, and are arranged so as to partially overlap the first transmission means, and the overlapping overlapping parts are Second light that exhibits at least the second color light that is one of the three primary colors of the light other than the first color and transmits only the second color except for the overlapping portion. Light emission from the transmission means and the side where the light emission means is arranged with respect to the first transmission means and the second transmission means And a light shielding unit for preventing the first transmission unit and the second transmission unit from being irradiated with light of a color other than the light projected from the unit.

  Thereby, since it has two movable bodies, the first movable body and the second movable body, the types (variations) of production operations can be increased by combining the respective movements, making the production operations more enjoyable. It is difficult to get bored, and it is possible to prevent the player's interest from being reduced by the production operation. Further, according to the configuration of this means, the first movable body and the second movable body expressing the face of the predetermined character are brought close to each other, separated from each other, or only one of them is moved up and down, or both are moved in the same direction. It can be moved up and down. In other words, it is possible to move the face of the predetermined character up and down, open and close the mouth of the face of the predetermined character, and the movable bodies become conspicuous in the gaming machine, so that the player pays attention to those movable bodies It is possible to entertain the production operation by the first movable body and the second movable body and prevent the interest from deteriorating.

  In addition, by moving the first movable body and the second movable body toward and away from each other by the first drive unit and the second drive unit, the mouth of the predetermined character is closed or opened. The movement of the mouth of the player can have a strong impact on the player and entertain, thereby preventing the interest from deteriorating.

  In addition, since the mounting contact surface of the base is mounted and fixed on the rear side of the game board so that the first movable body and the second movable body can be visually recognized through the through hole, the base is mounted on the rear side of the game board. Even if attached, the movable body guided and guided to the guiding member supported by the base through the through hole can be visually recognized by the player, and the fun of the first movable body and the second movable body is reduced and the interest is lowered. In addition, even if the above-mentioned movable body is provided in the gaming machine, the gaming area is not narrowed for mounting and fixing the base, and a sufficient gaming area is secured. It is possible to prevent the movement of the game medium from becoming a monotonous movement and to prevent the interest from deteriorating.

  Furthermore, since the first movable body and the second movable body are moved on the front side of the effect display means, it is possible to bring the effect mode displayed on the effect display means and the movable body as close as possible. It becomes possible, and it can be made easier to associate the production mode with the production operation of the first movable body and the second movable body, and by the collaboration by the production operation of the production mode and the first movable body and the second movable body, It is possible to provide an unprecedented high impact production and enhance the interest of the player.

  In addition, since the first drive unit and the second drive unit are arranged on the left and right outer sides of the effect display means, the length of the first drive unit and the second drive unit is at least the length of the effect display means in the vertical direction. Can be secured, and can be made longer than the case where the first drive unit and the second drive unit are arranged on the upper side or the lower side of the effect display means. The amount of movement of the movable body can be increased so that the player can stand out, and the first movable body and the second movable body can be enjoyed to prevent the entertainment from deteriorating.

  In addition, since the moving body for applying tension to the drive belt is guided and guided by the guiding member that guides and guides the guided member, the moving body is moved in a direction in which the driving pulley and the driven pulley are separated from each other. It is not necessary to separately provide a mechanism for making it possible to simplify the entire apparatus and to suppress an overall increase in size. That is, since it is possible to prevent the overall size from being increased, it is possible to relatively increase the size of the first movable body and the second movable body and to increase the amount of movement. It is possible to easily recognize the production operation of the second movable body and prevent the entertainment from being lowered by the production operation.

  In addition, since the urging force of the urging means acts between the guide hole that is guided and guided by the guide member in the moving body and the locking portion that locks and holds the shaft portion of the driven pulley, The urging force of the urging means applied to the moving body is applied substantially equally to the guiding member side and the driven pulley side, and the moving body can be prevented from being inclined with respect to the guiding member. Can be satisfactorily guided and guided, and a predetermined tension can be satisfactorily applied to the drive belt by the urging force of the urging means, whereby the tension of the drive belt wound around the drive pulley and the driven pulley can be increased. Thus, the drive belt can be driven to rotate favorably.

  Furthermore, since the moving body is provided with a hook-shaped locking portion that is open on the opposite side of the driving pulley and locks the shaft portion of the driven pulley, the shaft portion can be rotated while the driving belt is wound around the driven pulley. The driven pulley and the drive belt can be easily assembled and the urging force can be applied to the drive belt simply by locking the to the locking portion.

  In addition, since only the mounting contact surface, which is a part of the entire length of the base, is attached and fixed to the game board, even if there is a dimensional error of the game board or base, etc. It is possible to reduce the effects of errors as much as possible, and even if the base is attached and fixed to the game board, it is possible to prevent problems such as distortion from occurring, and the base is attached to the game board well. be able to. Therefore, even if the length of the guide member for guiding and guiding the first movable body and the second movable body is increased, the base can be satisfactorily attached and fixed to the game board even if the base supporting the guide member becomes longer. Therefore, it is possible to increase the length of the guide member so that the first movable body and the second movable body move greatly, and to easily recognize the rendering operation of the first movable body and the second movable body. Thus, it is possible to prevent the player's interest from being reduced by the effect operation.

  Furthermore, the mounting contact surface disposed on the upper side of the base is fixed to the game board, that is, the mounting is fixed only on one side of the base, so that the mounting to the game board is the base. For example, the left and right forces are applied to the surface of the game board so that the center of gravity of the base moves from the vertical line of the mounting contact surface to the left and right. Even if it shifts to either, the rotation moment applied to the center of gravity acts to return the center of gravity of the base to the vertical line of the mounting contact surface, and the base returns to its original position. It is possible to suppress the force other than the weight acting on the base from acting on the base, and it is possible to satisfactorily mount and fix the base, and it is possible to prevent the base from being deformed and causing problems.

  In addition, a mounting hole for inserting a screw is formed in the upper part of the mounting contact surface of the base, so that the number of screws can be reduced as much as possible because it is mounted only at the upper part of the base. In addition to simplifying the time and effort required for mounting, it is possible to make it difficult to apply the rotational moment applied to the screw and the mounting contact surface as much as possible for the same reason as described above. Can be fixed.

  In addition, a drive pulley of the moving means is disposed on the same upper side as the side on which the mounting contact surface of the base for mounting and fixing to the game board is disposed. In other words, the rotational drive means for rotationally driving the drive pulley is supported on the upper side of the base close to the attachment contact surface, so that the attachment application is performed at a position as close as possible to the rotational drive means that is a source of vibration and reaction force. Each member such as a guide member supported by the base by vibration of the base is able to prevent the vibration from the rotation driving means from being transmitted to the entire base and is fixed to the game board via the contact surface. It is possible to prevent the guided member from being able to be guided and guided satisfactorily due to vibration and contact with other members and being damaged, or the assembly of the members being loosened.

  Furthermore, since the guided member holding the first movable body and the second movable body is slidably guided to the guiding member via the two sliding members, the contact area of the sliding portion is reduced as much as possible. The sliding resistance can be reduced, the guided member can be guided and guided well in the vertical direction together with the first movable body and the second movable body, and the first movable body and the second movable body. The size of the body can be increased, the first movable body and the second movable body can be made more conspicuous, and the production effect can be made higher, and it is possible to prevent the interest from deteriorating. Further, since it is possible to suppress an increase in sliding resistance even if the first movable body and the second movable body are increased in size, the first movable body and the second movable body can be controlled without using a large moving means having a large driving force. The guided member holding the second movable body can be guided and guided satisfactorily, and the first movable body and the second movable body of a desired size can be provided in the gaming machine, which can be more interesting. It can be.

  Furthermore, since the sliding resistance can be reduced, the driving force required to move the guided member in a stationary state can be reduced, and the guided member can be easily started to move. In other words, since the movement response of the guided member can be increased, the guided member, that is, the first movable body or the second movable body can be moved quickly, and the impact due to those movements can be further increased. It is possible to suppress the interest from deteriorating.

  In addition, since the friction reducing layer is formed on the surface of the guide member and the sliding resistance between the guide member and the slide member can be reduced, the guided member can be guided and guided well through the slide member. In addition, the friction at the sliding portion is reduced and it is possible to make it difficult to wear, and the guiding member and the sliding member are quickly worn and the guided member, that is, the operation of the first movable body and the second movable body. It is possible to prevent the occurrence of defects.

  Furthermore, since the support shaft is rotatably held by the guided member via the two support bushes, this makes it possible to compare the support shaft with the guided member so that the entire portion can be rotated. Thus, the contact portion with the support shaft is reduced as much as possible, the frictional resistance applied to the support shaft can be reduced, the support shaft can be rotated well, and the movable supported by the support shaft. It is possible to enhance the interest by making the body move smoothly.

  In addition, since the two sliding members and the two support bushes are held at predetermined positions by the main body portion and the fixing member of the guided member, the two sliding members and the two support members are thereby supported. The bush can be easily held by the main body and the fixing member, and can be easily assembled.

  Furthermore, the first movable body and the second movable body are moved by the rotational drive of the drive belt, and the first movable body and the second movable body are compared with the case where a moving means such as a screw member is used. The moving speed can be moved faster, and the first moving body and the second moving body that move faster can impress the player strongly. It is possible to entertain the operation, and it is possible to prevent the interest in the game from decreasing. In addition, it is possible to further reduce the size compared to the case where the same movement amount is moved using a solenoid or a cylinder, and it can be easily installed in the gaming machine, and the first movable body or the second movable body. Even if the movement amount of the body is increased, it can be installed in the gaming machine, so that the first movable body and the second movable body can be moved more greatly, and the first movable body and the second movable body can be operated. Can be easily recognized, and it is possible to prevent the interest from being lowered by the production operation.

  Further, since the guided member is guided and guided by the guiding member, even if the guided member is moved using a flexible belt, the guided member can be guided and guided straight by the guiding member. In this case, the guided member, that is, the movable body can be favorably moved in a desired posture.

  Furthermore, by engaging the engagement teeth and the engaged teeth of the drive belt and the drive pulley with each other, the drive belt can be made difficult to slide on the outer peripheral surface of the drive pulley, and the drive pulley can reliably rotate. It can be transmitted to the drive belt, and even if the rotation speed of the drive pulley is increased, no slip occurs between the drive pulley and the drive belt, so that the drive belt can be driven at a higher speed. The movable body can be moved at a higher speed via the guided member, and the movement with stronger impact can be made to the first movable body or the second movable body, so that the excitement can be enhanced.

  Further, since the driving pulley is arranged on the upper side and the driven pulley is arranged on the lower side, the driving belt is pulled downward, that is, in a direction away from the driving pulley, due to the weight of the fixed guided member or the like. This force increases the wrapping force of the drive belt around the drive pulley and increases the frictional force between the drive pulley and the drive belt, making it difficult for the drive belt to slip. The driven member can be driven and the driven pulley and the driving belt can be prevented from slipping and the guided member can be prevented from descending, and the first movable body and the second movable body can be moved through the guided member. It is possible to make the first movable body and the second movable body perform a predetermined production operation, and the excitement can be enhanced.

  In addition, since the biasing means for biasing the driven pulley in the direction away from the drive pulley is provided, a predetermined tension can be applied to the drive belt, and the drive belt wound around the drive pulley and the driven pulley can be provided. The driving belt can be driven to rotate favorably with appropriate tension.

  Further, the driving pulley and the driven pulley are arranged in the vertical direction, and the guide member is arranged in the vertical direction so as to substantially follow the surface of the game board, that is, the first movable body and the second movable body are used in the game machine. Because it moves in the vertical direction (direction along the surface of the game board), which is relatively large with respect to the dimension in the direction perpendicular to the board surface (front-rear direction), the first movable body And the amount of movement of the second movable body can be increased as much as possible, making it easier to recognize the movement of the first movable body and the second movable body, entertaining the production operation and reducing interest Can be prevented. In addition, since the first movable body and the second movable body can be moved in the vertical direction, the first movable body and the second movable body move in the vertical direction substantially the same as the flow direction of the game medium flowing down the game area. The player can easily move the line of sight between the game medium and the first movable body or the second movable body, and the player can be prevented from getting tired early and prevent the interest from being lowered. it can.

  In addition, the first support member and the second support member member made of resin are supported by the base made of sheet metal, and the guide member is supported by the first support member and the second support member member. Then, it becomes possible to make the resin member that increases the strain as small as possible, and even if the guide member is made large (long), the guide member can be accurately supported at a desired position. The first movable body and the second movable body can be guided and guided satisfactorily through the first movable body and the second movable body can be moved more greatly. It is possible to easily recognize the production operation of the second movable body, and to prevent the interest from being lowered by the production operation.

  In addition, since the base, the guide member, and the guide member are integrally assembled by the first support member and the second support member, and the overall strength rigidity is enhanced by the synergistic effect of the respective rigidity, the base and guide Even if the length of the member is increased and the amount of movement of the guided member is increased, the base and the guiding member are prevented from being deformed by the reaction force or vibration generated by the movement of the guided member. The first movable body and the second movable body can be moved well, and the first movable body and the second movable body can be moved more greatly to recognize the directing action of the first movable body and the second movable body. It is easy to prevent the interest from being lowered by the production operation.

  Further, when assembling the first support member and the second support member and the base, the first support member and the second support member are moved to a predetermined position separated by a predetermined distance only by fitting the positioning protrusion into the positioning hole. The positioning member can be easily positioned and supported, and the guide member can be easily arranged and supported at a desired position.

  Furthermore, since the rotation means for rotating the support shaft that supports the first movable body and the second movable body is provided, the first movable body and the second movable body are rotated around the axis of the support shaft. It is possible to move the movable body not only in the vertical direction in which the guide member extends but also in the direction around the axis of the support shaft, and the movement of the first movable body and the second movable body is more complicated. In addition, the opening / closing operation of the mouth of the predetermined character becomes a more realistic operation, and the appealing power to the player is strengthened, and the excitement is enhanced by making the movement with a higher production effect. be able to.

  Further, the rotating means for rotating the support shaft is disposed on the opposite side of the guided member from the side where the movable member is held. As a result, the guided member holds the movable body on one side with the guiding member interposed therebetween, and the rotating means on the other side, and a predetermined load is applied to both sides of the guiding member. As a result, the biased load applied to the guided member is mitigated, the occurrence of uneven friction and wear between the guided member and the guiding member is suppressed, and the guided member is guided and guided to the guiding member by the biased load. Can be prevented from being awkwardly moved without being guided smoothly or being unable to guide and guide.

  In addition, since a solenoid is used as a drive source for the rotation means, it is possible to make a quick response with a higher response than when using a motor, and a movable body can perform a strong impact operation. Can be more interesting.

  In addition, since the guided member can be prevented from rotating around the axis of the guiding member by the rotation preventing means, the guided member can be held by the guided member even when the guided member is moved by a drive belt having a lot of vibration. It is possible to satisfactorily prevent the first movable body and the second movable body from rotating around the axis of the guiding member, that is, swinging around the axis, and to achieve a desired effect by suppressing unintentional shake. Can be reliably performed, and the interest can be prevented from decreasing, and the first movable body and the second movable body can be made larger. The body can be made more conspicuous and the production effect can be further enhanced.

  Furthermore, since both ends of the guide member in the rotation preventing means are supported by the first support member and the second support member, there is no need to separately provide a support member for supporting the guide member, and the guide member is supported. The structure for doing so can be simplified and the increase in cost can be suppressed. Further, since the support accuracy of the guide member can be improved similarly to the guide member, the relationship between the guide member and the guide member (for example, parallelism) even if the guide member is lengthened with the increase in the length of the guide member. Can be maintained in a good state, the shake of the guided member can be satisfactorily prevented, and the first movable body and the second movable body can be made larger by making the first movable body and the second movable body more prominent. The entertainment can be enhanced by the directing action of the movable body.

  Further, in the first drive unit that moves the first movable body, the guide member of the rotation preventing means is disposed on the opposite side of the first movable body with the guide member interposed therebetween, and the distance between the guide member and the guide member is a predetermined distance. Increase the anti-rotation function by the anti-rotation means by increasing the length in the left-right direction, and improve the weight balance with the first movable body by the weight of the rotation means and anti-rotation means, The first movable body can be guided and guided satisfactorily. On the other hand, in the second drive unit that moves the second movable body, the guide member of the rotation preventing means is arranged in either of the front and rear directions of the guide member, so the length in the left and right direction can be shortened, The length of the direction in the first drive unit can be absorbed by the second drive unit, and the entire length in the left-right direction including the first drive unit and the second drive unit can be increased. The first movable body and the second movable body can be provided in the gaming machine in a good state while being suppressed.

  Furthermore, since the base is attached and fixed to the rear side of the game board, the first support member, the second support member, the guide member, the guided member, the moving means, and the like supported by the base and the base are not put on the through hole. By attaching and fixing in such a manner, these members can be made difficult to see from the player side through the through hole, and it can be prevented from giving a complicated impression by seeing them, and it is possible to suppress a decrease in interest can do.

  In addition, a frame-shaped main character having a rolling effect surface is arranged so as to cover the through hole of the game board from the front, and the first movable body and the second movable body provided through the base behind the game board. Since the body can be seen through the inside of the main actor's frame shape, this allows not only the above-described moving action of the movable body but also the movement of the game medium that rolls on the rolling effect surface (stage) of the main actor. However, it is possible to enhance the interest of the player, the main character on the front side and the first movable body and the second movable body are arranged on the rear side, and it can be a deep gaming machine, Differentiating from a gaming machine can be achieved, and attention can be paid to the player, which can further enhance interest.

  Furthermore, the moving means may be configured integrally with the guide member and the guided member, or the moving means may be configured integrally with the rotation preventing means, and thereby the same effects as described above can be achieved. In addition, the configuration of the moving means can be simplified.

  In addition, since the front movable body is provided on the front side of the first movable body and the second movable body, the movable body can be made more movable by making the movement different from the first movable body and the second movable body movable up and down, for example. It is possible to attract attention, and to enjoy the performance operation by the first movable body, the second movable body, and the front movable body, and to prevent the interest from deteriorating.

  In addition, when the front decorative body is arranged in the substantially horizontal first arrangement state, at least one of the first movable body and the second movable body is arranged on the rear side, and it is difficult to see from the player. . This makes it possible to switch between effects that expose the first movable body (or the second movable body) so as to be visible or shield it so that it is difficult to visually recognize, and it is possible to produce effects that attract the player's attention. It becomes.

  The front movable body is at least one of the first drive unit and the first movable body or the second drive unit and the second movable body in the second arrangement state arranged substantially vertically. Can be shielded. Thereby, since a connection part can be shielded between a movable body and a drive unit, a support shaft etc. can be concealed and appearance can be improved. Further, since the connecting portion can be shielded by the front movable body that moves differently from the first movable body (or / and the second movable body), each drive unit and the first movable body (or / and the second movable body) can be shielded. It is difficult to understand how the first movable body (or / and the second movable body) is moved, making it difficult to understand the relationship with the body). Since a certain performance can be performed, it is possible to attract the attention of the player and enhance the interest.

  Furthermore, since the front movable body can be moved using a separate movement (turning) different from the vertical movement of the first movable body and the second movable body, the variation of movement in the game area is increased. Thus, the production effect can be further enhanced and the player's interest can be enhanced.

  In addition, among the front movable bodies having a substantially long main body, the first movable body and the second movable body are pivoted about the same end side as the side on which the first movable body is cantilevered, thereby being substantially vertical. In such a second arrangement state, the main body portion extending toward the other end side inevitably shields between the movable body and the drive unit. Thereby, since the connection part of a 1st movable body or a 2nd movable body and each drive unit can be shielded naturally, it can improve appearance more smoothly and skillfully.

  Further, since the end side of the front movable body is rotatably supported, the rotation means for rotating the front movable body is compared with the end of the game area as compared with the case where it is supported near the center. Easy to place on the side. Thereby, since it is hard to shield the 1st movable body, the 2nd movable body, or production | presentation display means by the said rotation means, it can make it easy to see the production | presentation aspect which these represent, and can prevent the fall of interest.

  In addition, since it is arranged in pairs at the same height on the left and right, in other words, because it is a configuration in which one front movable body is divided into two, the length in the left-right direction of one front movable body is set. It can be shortened to about half. Thereby, since the size per front movable body can be reduced, the drive load borne by each drive unit is reduced, and the front movable body can be driven at a higher speed. Therefore, it is possible to perform a speedy and dynamic performance by the front movable body, and it is possible to enjoy the performance operation of the front movable body and to prevent the interest from deteriorating.

  Furthermore, two front movable bodies arranged at approximately the same height on the left and right are formed as a set, that is, in a shape and pattern reminiscent of unity, so that the substantially vertical second arrangement state is substantially horizontal state. When moving to, it is possible to produce a united shape that causes a unified concept. For example, a decorative member shaped like a letter is attached to the front movable body arranged on the right side and the front movable body arranged on the left side, and the two front movable bodies are at the same height by shifting to the first arrangement state. When arranged, it is possible to produce an effect in which two words become one continuous meaningful word. In this way, by performing an unexpected performance, it is possible to provide an interesting gaming machine that attracts the attention of the player and other spectators and has a strong ability to attract customers.

  In addition, since the front movable body is provided inside the main body frame shape, when the front movable body is rotated inside, the constituent members of the main actor and the front movable body do not interfere with each other smoothly. It can be rotated and is more preferable.

  Further, the main body of the front movable body is formed in a size that does not contact the game medium supplied on the stage. In other words, since it is arranged as a decorative movable body, there is no possibility of hindering the rolling effect of the game medium unfolded on the stage. Thereby, in addition to the effect of the movement by the front movable body, the effect of rolling the game medium rolling on the stage can be sufficiently provided, and the player's eyes can be enjoyed. Further, since the movement of the game medium is not hindered, the concern that the interest of the player is reduced by flowing the game medium down to a place other than the predetermined flow-down opening by contact is also eliminated. Therefore, it is possible to provide an attractive gaming machine that is more interesting and lasts.

  In addition, since the front movable body is a decorative movable body that can emit light, the front movable body not only moves between the first arrangement state and the second arrangement state, but can also emit light. It is possible to make the player notice the front movable body and attract attention, and enjoy the movement of the front movable body and prevent the interest from deteriorating.

  According to the configuration of this means, the first movable body is provided with the light emitting means and the light emitting decoration display means having a relatively simple structure including a plurality of transmitting means, and the light emitted from the light emitting means is transmitted. Various display modes can be displayed simply by changing the color. Further, when a plurality of transmission means (first transmission means, second transmission means, etc.) are arranged overlapping each other, the overlapping portions are transmitted through the first color and the second color, respectively. Since it is configured to be possible, the corresponding display modes (first display mode and second display mode) can be clearly displayed.

  Further, since the light emitting decoration display means is provided with a light shielding means, even when the effect display device is another optical display device (LCD, CRT, etc.), the light emitted from these other effect display devices. Can be prevented from being projected onto the transmission means, and a desired display mode can be clearly displayed at a desired display timing. In addition, since the light emitting means for emitting the three primary colors is composed of LEDs, it is possible to relatively easily reduce the wavelength components of other colors and to easily transmit display contents intuitively. can do. Accordingly, it is possible to provide a gaming machine that makes it difficult for a player to feel stress, and that can not only reduce the interest and attention level related to the game content but also improve it further.

  On the other hand, when the first movable body is a predetermined character body, it is possible to provide a gaming machine that is easy to associate with the game content and the character body and that is easy to get along with. In addition, since the first transmission means and the second transmission means are formed on the same surface with the light-shielding member as a background, it is difficult to see the members (for example, light emitting means) on the back surface of these transmission means. be able to.

  Furthermore, compared with the case where a white member is used as a background, the display mode displayed by transmitting light, that is, the display mode displayed by light emission can be effectively raised, and the impact is gorgeous. An optical display device can be provided.

  Further, by providing the movable body with an optical display device, it is possible to perform display with a high degree of freedom without being constrained by the display area. In particular, an optical display device that is a light emitting decoration display means has a relatively simple configuration including a light emitting means, a plurality of transmission means, and a light shielding means, and the first transmission means and the second transmission means are on the same plane. Compactly formed. Therefore, since it can be suitably arranged on the movable body, a variety of effects can be provided, and a gaming machine that can be easily accepted by a wide age group can be provided.

  In addition, since the main character is provided with a downstream outlet, the game medium flows down to the rear of the stage, so that it is difficult to see for a moment that the game medium flows down while being blocked by the stage. Therefore, it is possible to perform a new effect that the player suddenly disappears, such as when the game medium suddenly disappears from the stage, and to focus on the movement of the game medium flowing down. In addition, since it has a flow-down port that allows game media to flow down both at the front and rear of the stage, it is difficult to tell whether the game media flows from the front of the stage or from the rear, and falls either It is possible to provide a gaming machine that can increase the player's expectation and attention.

  By the way, hitherto, game objects and winning holes have been arranged symmetrically. Along with this, the receiving ports for the game media (and the supply ports on the stage) are also arranged on both the left and right sides.

  However, the configuration described above has the following problems. That is, if the next game medium is supplied from the other end side before the game medium supplied from one end side on the stage finishes the rolling effect and flows down from the stage, one game medium and the other game There is a possibility that either (or both) of the medium collides with the medium and is blown off from the stage. In particular, if game media is vigorously supplied from both ends of the stage at almost the same timing, the game media will collide violently near the center of the stage, falling off the front of the stage, or placed behind the stage. You can also think of hitting and scratching.

  On the other hand, according to the configuration of this means, the supply port is provided on either one of the left and right sides of the stage. By providing such a new configuration, it is possible to expect an effect that will give a strong impact and surprise the player and attract interest, and more than one game medium will collide violently compared to the case where it is supplied from both ends The risk of doing so is reduced.

  This point will be specifically described. If game media continuously supplied from the supply port on one end side collide on the stage, for example, when the game medium supplied earlier is folded on the other end side of the stage, Next, even if there is a collision with the game medium supplied from one end side, the previously supplied game medium has a part of kinetic energy with the stage as it rolls on the stage. Since it can be attenuated by friction, the momentum of the game medium is reduced compared to the case where the game medium is vigorously supplied at almost the same timing from both ends of the stage, and the collision occurs relatively slowly. That is, since the rolling speed of the previously supplied game medium is reduced, the relative speed of the two game media is reduced, so that the amount of energy generated at the time of collision is reduced. Accordingly, it is difficult to drop off from the stage and the possibility of collision with the partition plate is reduced, so that it is possible to attract the player for a long time and enjoy the game.

  Further, according to the configuration of the present means, the wake downstream port is configured to have an opening formed in the partition plate, so that the position of the wake downstream port is positioned opposite the player's line of sight. Provided. Therefore, it is preferable because the player can easily recognize the downstream position and easily attract attention. Specifically, it disappears from the stage as compared to the case of being guided by a hole drilled toward the lower side of the stage (depressed downward) or a gap provided at the rear side of the stage. The flow path of the instantaneous game medium can be configured to be visible. Therefore, it is possible to attract the player's interest in the behavior of the game media before the game media returns to the game area, that is, the behavior of the game media at the moment of flowing down from the stage, so that more various effects can be achieved. The state can be provided, and a decrease in the interest of the player can be effectively prevented.

  Further, it is formed to protrude from the opening to the rear of the stage and further includes a dome-shaped guide recess for guiding the game medium to the receiving part. As a result, even when the game medium flows down vigorously, it is reliably guided to the receiving part below and behind the stage, and is received by the receiving part without dropping off. Therefore, the player's eyes can be fully enjoyed, and a decrease in interest can be prevented.

  If the guide recess is integrated with the partition plate, that is, made of the same transparent member as the partition plate, a light source located further behind the guide recess can be effectively incorporated, and the game medium is lit up. It is possible to obtain such a production effect. For example, when an optical display device such as a liquid crystal display device is arranged behind the partition plate, the light emitted by these devices can be taken into the inside of the guide recess, and the game medium passing through the inside can be illuminated with a light source. it can. This makes it possible to brightly illuminate the game medium flowing out from the outlet, and to make the movement of the game medium more gorgeous and eye-catching.

  In addition, since the main character is provided with energy applying means, it is possible to apply the kinetic energy to the game medium, thereby avoiding the possibility of the game medium being clogged on the stage. Therefore, the game can be interrupted, and various game states (for example, winning at the start opening) following the rolling effect can be promoted to provide a more exciting game state. Thereby, since the fall of a player's interest can be prevented, it is more suitable.

  By the way, if the width of the stage in the front-rear direction (hereinafter simply referred to as “stage width”) is substantially equal to or narrower than the width of one game medium, the path of the game medium supplied on the stage Even if it slightly deviates, it falls off the stage in no time. Therefore, the stage width is generally formed to have a relatively large width compared to one game medium. By forming in this way, even when the trajectory of the game medium is slightly deviated, it is possible to produce an effect of rolling repeatedly left and right without dropping off from the stage.

  However, if the width of the stage is too wide, the arrangement and size of other objects (for example, an effect display device and a decorative body) are restricted behind the stage, which is not preferable. In addition, when the trajectory of the game medium fluctuates in the front-rear direction of the stage, for example, by providing a partition plate or the like, it is possible to prevent the game medium from dropping from a place other than the predetermined position to some extent, but the trajectory is swung. It is conceivable that the kinetic energy is wasted and the kinetic energy is consumed by colliding with a barrier plate or the like, so that the rolling speed of the game medium is rapidly reduced. In such a case, the game medium may stop rolling and stay on the stage, which is not preferable because the player's eyes cannot be enjoyed.

  On the other hand, according to the configuration of the present means, the energy applying means is provided with a groove formed with a width that allows almost one game medium to pass through, so that the trajectory of the game medium can be Since it is corrected to near the center without moving in the direction, the rolling energy is efficiently used for the rolling effect in the left-right direction without being wasted. Therefore, there is no possibility that the game medium stays on the stage, and the rolling effect can be satisfactorily continued on the stage. Further, since the trajectory of the game medium is corrected to approximately the center of the stage, the possibility of falling off from the front side or the rear side of the stage is reduced, and a rolling effect can be performed more satisfactorily.

  In addition, since the trajectory can be corrected, fluctuations in the trajectory of the game medium can be suppressed, and thereby the width of the stage can be reduced as much as possible. Therefore, the degree of freedom increases in the arrangement and size of the arrangement to be arranged behind the main character, for example, the first movable body and the second movable body in this means, and a gaming machine equipped with more various production devices and decorative members. This is preferable because it can be provided.

  Furthermore, since the retention prevention means is provided at the end of the extended rolling surface, the game medium that has entered the extended rolling surface is pushed back toward the center of the stage even if the rolling energy becomes zero. Continue rolling production without staying. Thereby, a player's eyes can fully be enjoyed.

  On the other hand, when trying to make a desired rolling effect on the game medium, if the supply speed of the game medium is too fast as opposed to the above, the game medium supplied from one end side is vigorously moved to the other end side. There is a case where it rolls to the end, collides with the bump at the other end as it is, jumps out of the stage and falls. In addition, there is a growing concern that the trajectory on the stage will deviate and fall from the place other than the predetermined position to the game area, and it will collide with the guide member on the rear side of the stage vigorously and be damaged or jumped by the impact. There was also a concern that various arrangements such as partition plates, nails and starters would be destroyed at the tip.

  On the other hand, according to the configuration of the present means, since the energy attenuating means is provided, the excessive rolling energy of the game medium can be attenuated, so that the game medium can be prevented from unexpectedly moving. It is possible to prevent the member in contact with the game medium from being damaged. As used herein, “unexpected movement” refers to, for example, a conventional gaming machine in which a large number of protrusions are formed on the stage surface, and the game medium falls off the stage when it hits the protrusions and bounces. The case where it collides with the glass plate installed in the front or the one arranged in the rear (for example, effect display means) and breaks is shown. In other words, according to the configuration of this means, excess rolling energy of the game medium can be attenuated, so that the unexpected movement as described above can be suppressed, and various members (according to the above example). For example, it is possible to prevent the glass plate installed in the front, the effect display means arranged in the rear, etc.) from being damaged.

  In addition, since the game medium can roll well on the stage, for example, when the main feature of this means is provided above the arrangement such as the winning start port or the attacker, the bonus is given each time the game medium rolls. It is possible to arouse a sense of expectation for (the start of a lottery, the induction of a big hit state, a payout by winning, etc.) and entertain the rolling state while making it throbbing. Therefore, in this case, it is possible to provide a more exciting gaming machine.

  In addition, as an energy attenuating means, a wall-like collision member is provided on the front side of the extended rolling surface, so that the game medium whose track has deviated to the front side of the extended rolling surface is approximately the front and rear of the extended rolling surface. It can be pushed back to the center side, and the rolling effect can be continued well.

  Furthermore, according to the structure of this means, since the partition plate is provided on the rear side of the stage, an arrangement on the rear side of the stage (for example, the first movable body or the second movable body) collides with the game medium. Thus, the possibility that the game medium is bounced to the front side of the stage by the impact and falls off from a place other than the predetermined position is reduced. In other words, even when the trajectory of the game medium deviates to the rear side of the stage, since the partition plate is provided, the rolling effect can be continued smoothly along the partition plate. Can be enjoyed without deteriorating the interest of the person.

  Further, since the partition plate is configured such that the effect image is visible to the player, the effect image can be provided to the player without stress. In other words, by arranging an arrangement in front of the effect display means, if the effect image is blocked from being viewed with difficulty when viewed from the player, the player may not want to see the effect image ( Or it may be difficult to see) and may be frustrating. On the other hand, according to the configuration of this means, the partition plate arranged in front of the effect display means configures the effect image in a state where the effect image is easily visible by using a transparent member. On the other hand, the effect image can be provided in a stress-free (small) state. Thereby, it is possible to provide a gaming machine that can relax and enjoy a game for a longer time.

  A protruding guide member formed integrally from the partition plate is provided, and the guide member is formed by notching a portion located at the downstream downstream opening.

  By the way, depending on the hall where the gaming machine is installed, the upper side of the gaming machine is slightly tilted backward, or the gaming board or stage (not the entire gaming machine) is tilted backward in advance with respect to the horizontal direction. May be attached. In such a case, the game medium supplied onto the stage easily rolls to the rear side of the stage according to gravity.

  On the other hand, according to the configuration of this means, since the guide member is provided on the rear side of the stage, the game medium rolled to the rear side of the stage is blocked by the guide member and may fall off to the rear of the stage. There is no. Moreover, since the site | part located in a downstream downstream opening | mouth is notched, the guide member can pass a game medium through the said notch site | part. That is, by forming the notched part at a predetermined position, it is possible to flow the game medium from the desired part to the back side of the stage.

  On the other hand, if the partition plate and the guide member are provided with an opening (rear-flow lower opening), the game medium whose track has deviated to the rear of the stage does not repeatedly roll to the left and right, but suddenly turns into the opening. May rush into. Or, the game media that rolls along the guide member may collide with the boundary portion between the guide member and the opening, that is, the edge portion of the guide member, and may be bounced off the front of the stage with that momentum. I can think.

  On the other hand, according to the structure of this means, the guide member has a portion located at the downstream downstream end, that is, an edge portion formed by notching, is inclined obliquely (chamfered) in the left-right direction. Is formed. Accordingly, the game medium can be guided not in the left-right direction but in the left-right direction rather than on the front side of the stage as compared with, for example, a substantially right-angled shape when viewed from above. Specifically, as illustrated above, if the edge portion has a substantially right-angle shape, the game medium that has rolled along the guide member may hit the corner portion and jump to the front side of the stage. There is. On the other hand, when the edge portion is formed obliquely in the left-right direction as in the configuration of this means, the game medium is guided to the left-right inclined surface and guided to roll in the left-right direction of the stage. Can be done. Therefore, it is possible to continue rolling in the right and left direction of the stage well without dropping off to the front side of the stage or suddenly entering into the opening, and to entertain the eyes of the player for a longer time. Can do.

  In addition, as a structure which inclines the edge part of a guide member diagonally in the left-right direction, like the structure of this means, a guide member protrudes from the partition plate (that is, the rear end side of the stage) to the front side of the stage, There is also a configuration that chamfers the edge part diagonally, but in addition, the partition plate is made of a thick material, and the edge part is inclined obliquely, or the downstream flow outlet projects to the rear side of the stage by a predetermined distance It is also possible to consider a configuration in which the corner portion is inclined by the predetermined distance and the corner portion is inclined in the left-right direction. In short, any configuration that provides a distance (thickness) that is inclined obliquely in the left-right direction may be used. However, when the guide member is formed as a ridge member as in the configuration of this means, when the trajectory of the game medium deviates to the rear side of the stage and collides with the rear arrangement object (partition plate or guide member), It is possible to lengthen the time until it bounces off from the impact and falls off from the front side of the stage, and as a result, the rolling effect can be continued on the stage for a longer time.

  More specifically, for example, when the partition plate is made of a thick material, or the rear flow outlet is formed to protrude to the rear side of the stage by a predetermined distance, the game medium rides on the rear end side of the stage. A standing wall that cannot be used will be erected. On the other hand, according to the configuration of the present means, the guide member has a ridge member, so depending on the height of the convex portion, unlike the case where it is simply bounced back to the standing wall portion, It is conceivable that the rolling game medium rides on the upper surface of the ridge, then collides with the partition plate, and returns to the stage so as to fall from the ridge. In other words, compared to the case where a standing wall portion having only a partition plate is provided on the rear side of the stage, it is possible to lengthen the time until it hits the partition plate by the time it gets over the ridge, and the game medium is longer by that much The distance can be rolled. Therefore, the time for rolling on the stage can be lengthened, and the rolling effect on the stage can be continued more preferably.

  By the way, in the conventional gaming machine, the accessory only supplies the game medium on the stage and causes the rolling effect to be performed. It is also possible to provide a discharge port guide means for guiding to a discharge port for discharging into the area. Thereby, the game medium guided by the discharge port guide means is guided to the discharge port as it is without being supplied onto the stage. That is, there is no rolling effect on the stage, and it is quickly discharged out of the game area. Such a state is boring for the player and can make it feel like a loss.

  Therefore, if possible, it is possible to concentrate the game medium on the stage and other game areas so that the game medium is not received by the outlet guide means. Can be generated. This makes it possible to produce a game that makes it difficult to get tired of the game, attracts the player's concentration and interest, and enhances the interest effectively, but the game medium guided by the outlet guide means Then, it flows down from the upper side of the game area and is guided to the discharge port. Therefore, as kinetic energy is given by gravity as it flows downward from above, the momentum of the game medium gradually increases, and when it reaches the outlet provided below the game area, it is high. It may have kinetic energy, and may collide with members constituting the discharge port and other objects (nails, winning holes, etc.) in the vicinity of the discharge port and damage these members. And there was a concern that this would interrupt the game and reduce the concentration and interest of the player.

  On the other hand, according to the configuration of the means 1, since the main character is provided with the speed reduction means, the kinetic energy given as the game medium flows down is attenuated by the speed reduction means. Accordingly, the flow speed of the game medium is reduced, and it is difficult to break these members by colliding with an object (nail, winning hole, etc.) near the discharge port, so that the game is not interrupted. Decline in interest can be prevented. In addition, since it is easy to be smoothly discharged to the discharge port without colliding with an arrangement in the vicinity of the discharge port, the player feels a thrill so that the discharge medium does not want to receive the game medium. Therefore, it is possible to increase concentration on the game, and it is possible to provide a gaming machine having a more interesting main character.

  Further, the game medium can be rolled along a guide surface formed on the outer peripheral surface of the main character, and can flow down from the upper side of the game area to be guided to the discharge port. Therefore, since the outlet guide means can be arranged without crossing the front of the main character and on the front side of the game board (position visible to the player), it is determined whether or not the game medium is discharged. In addition to being irritated, making it easy to see makes it difficult for the player's eyes to be exhausted and enhances the interest.

  As a result, when the game medium guided by the guide means is vigorously released to the game area, the discharge port guide means is arranged at a place where it is more likely to flow down, so that the game medium is guided to the discharge port. It becomes easy to be done. Therefore, it is necessary for the player to carefully adjust the force to drive the game medium and to concentrate the game medium so that the game medium is not guided to the discharge port.

  Further, since the outlet guide means has a substantially U-shaped horizontal section, that is, a part of the outlet guide means is opened, the game medium is clogged in the outlet guide means, or dust is attached and the flow is poor. Even in such a case, maintenance can be performed relatively easily from the front of the game board. Thereby, since there is a low possibility that the game will be interrupted, it is possible to provide a gaming machine capable of continuing the game comfortably without further reducing the concentration of the player.

  Further, since the guide surface and the inner peripheral surface are arranged substantially in parallel, it is possible to guide the game medium so as to be sandwiched by the cooperation of the guide surface and the inner peripheral surface. In other words, since the game medium can be smoothly guided from the upper side to the lower side of the game area, it is possible to effectively increase the sense of tension by arranging the outlet guide means, and to attract more interest of the player. It can be attached.

  Further, since the plurality of protrusions are alternately formed at positions facing each other, for example, the protrusion formed on the inner wall on the right side has a left-hand side even when the game medium flows down along the inner wall on the left side. It can be made to collide with the protrusion of the inner wall, and the game medium can be pushed to the right inner wall side. As described above, the game medium is moderately decelerated and guided to the discharge port by being collided successively with the plurality of protrusions arranged to face each other. In addition, the method of arranging the outlet guide means is not limited to a curved shape, and can be decelerated even if it is straight. This is more preferable because there is no restriction on the arrangement method.

  Further, according to the configuration of the present means, the first movable body includes the light emitting means and the light emitting decoration display means having a relatively simple structure including a plurality of transmitting means, and the light emitted from the light emitting means is transmitted. Various display modes can be displayed simply by changing the color. Further, when a plurality of transmission means (first transmission means, second transmission means, etc.) are arranged overlapping each other, the overlapping portions are transmitted through the first color and the second color, respectively. Since it is configured to be possible, the corresponding display modes (first display mode and second display mode) can be clearly displayed.

  Further, since the light emitting decoration display means is provided with a light shielding means, even when the effect display device is another optical display device (LCD, CRT, etc.), the light emitted from these other effect display devices. Can be prevented from being projected onto the transmission means, and a desired display mode can be clearly displayed at a desired display timing. In addition, since the light emitting means for emitting the three primary colors is composed of LEDs, it is possible to relatively easily reduce the wavelength components of other colors and to easily transmit display contents intuitively. can do. Accordingly, it is possible to provide a gaming machine that makes it difficult for a player to feel stress, and that can not only reduce the interest and attention level related to the game content but also improve it further.

  On the other hand, when the first movable body is a predetermined character body, it is possible to provide a gaming machine that is easy to associate with the game content and the character body and that is easy to get along with. In addition, since the first transmission means and the second transmission means are formed on the same surface with the light-shielding member as a background, it is difficult to see the members (for example, light emitting means) on the back surface of these transmission means. be able to.

  Furthermore, compared with the case where a white member is used as a background, the display mode displayed by transmitting light, that is, the display mode displayed by light emission can be effectively raised, and the impact is gorgeous. An optical display device can be provided.

  Further, by providing the movable body with an optical display device, it is possible to perform display with a high degree of freedom without being constrained by the display area. In particular, an optical display device that is a light emitting decoration display means has a relatively simple configuration including a light emitting means, a plurality of transmission means, and a light shielding means, and the first transmission means and the second transmission means are on the same plane. Compactly formed. Therefore, since it can be suitably arranged on the movable body, a variety of effects can be provided, and a gaming machine that can be easily accepted by a wide age group can be provided.

  Thus, according to the present invention, it is possible to provide a gaming machine that can sufficiently enjoy a game and can prevent a player's interest from deteriorating.

Hereinafter, a pachinko gaming machine (hereinafter simply referred to as a “pachinko machine”) according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the drawings.
[Overall Configuration of Pachinko Machine] A description will be given based on FIGS. 1 and 2.
FIG. 1 is a front view showing the entire front side of the pachinko machine, and FIG. 2 is a perspective view showing a state in which the main body frame is opened on one side of the outer frame of the pachinko machine and the front frame is opened on one side of the main body frame. It is. In FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, the decorative member in the game area is omitted.
The pachinko machine 1 includes an outer frame 2, a main body frame 3, a front frame 4, a game board 5, and the like. The outer frame 2 is formed into a vertically long rectangular frame shape by upper, lower, left, and right wooden frame members, and has a lower receiving plate 6 that receives the lower surface of the main body frame 3 at the front lower portion of the outer frame 2. On one side of the front surface of the outer frame 2, the main body frame 3 is attached by a hinge mechanism 7 so as to be opened and closed forward. The outer frame 2 may be formed of a light metal such as resin or aluminum.

[Configuration of Main Body Frame] A description will be given based on FIGS. 1 and 3.
FIG. 3 is a perspective view showing the main frame of the pachinko machine and the game board separated from the front right and diagonally.
The main body frame 3 is configured by integrally molding the front frame body 11, the game board mounting frame 12, and the mechanism mounting body 13 with a synthetic resin material. The front frame body 11 of the main body frame 3 is formed in a rectangular frame shape having a size corresponding to the outer shape excluding the support plate 6 on the front side of the outer frame 2 (see FIG. 2). A main body frame side hinge device 15 is fixed to the upper and lower portions on one side of the front frame body 11, and a hinge pin and a hinge are connected to the outer frame side hinge device 14 fixed to the upper and lower portions on one side of the outer frame 2. It is mounted so that it can be opened and closed by a hole. That is, the hinge mechanism 7 is configured by the outer frame side hinge tool 14, the main body frame side hinge tool 15, the hinge pin, and the hinge hole.

  On the front side of the front frame body 11, a speaker box portion 16 is integrally formed in the front lower left area of the front frame body 11 positioned below the game board mounting frame 12, and is formed in the front opening portion of the speaker box portion 16.

A ball receiving portion 259 that extends to the rear side and is capable of receiving a game ball from above, and a ball outlet that opens the game ball received by the ball receiving portion 259 below the ball guide portion 258 and on the front side of the stage 256 And a sphere guiding portion 261 that guides the fluid so as to flow out from 260. Note that a ball guiding recess 262 that protrudes rearward is formed in a substantially central lower portion of the partition plate 233, and the game ball guided to the rear side of the stage 256 by the ball guiding portion 258 is guided to the ball guiding recess 262. Thus, the ball receiving portion 259 can be satisfactorily received without flowing out to the rear side of the partition plate 233. Further, on the rear side of the stage 256, a ridge member 302 formed so as to protrude toward the front side of the stage is integrally formed from the partition plate 233. Further, the edge portion 303 of the ridge member 302 is formed obliquely with respect to the left-right direction of the stage 256, and the game ball that has collided with the edge of the opening 304 of the partition plate 233 is moved forward of the stage 256. It is configured to guide in the left-right direction instead of the side.

  Further, the frame-shaped decorative body 230 of the main character 213 has a surface on the opposite side of the warp passage 252 across the stage 256 so that the central side in the left-right direction of the frame-shaped decorative body 230 is slightly lowered. Further provided is an extended rolling surface 263 that is continuous with the rolling surface 253. The extended rolling surface 263 is taken in from the warp inlet 250 and supplied to the stage 256 at a predetermined initial speed via the warp passage 252, gets over the weir portion 255 of the stage 256 and flows out of the stage 256. This is intended to prevent this. As shown in the figure, a decorative member 301 that is a part of the character body 231 is arranged on the front side of the extended rolling surface 263. Thus, even if the game ball bounces on the extended rolling surface 263, it is difficult for the game ball to drop off from the extended rolling surface 263 (see FIG. 19). In addition, the decorative member 301 is composed of a game medium arranged behind it and a member that can visually recognize various effects (transparent member 360: see FIG. 19). The rolling effect and the effect image displayed by the effect display device 217 can be viewed through the member 360, which is preferable because it does not get in the way.

  The “ball guide path 257” corresponds to the “guidance means” of the present invention, and the “ball receiver 259” corresponds to the “receiver”. The “projection strip member 302” corresponds to the “opening guide means”, and the “sphere guide recess 262” corresponds to the “guide recess” of the present invention. Further, the opening portion 254 corresponds to the “front flow lower port” of the present invention, the “opening 304” corresponds to the “rear flow lower port” of the present invention, and the “ball outlet 260” corresponds to the “outlet”. . Further, the “inclination 284” and the “groove 305” correspond to the “energy applying unit” of the present invention.

  The operation of the extended rolling surface 263 will be described in detail. A game ball supplied at a predetermined initial speed through the warp passage 252 rolls from the left end of the stage 256 to the right end and is placed on the extended rolling surface 263. At that time, the stage 256 is shaped so that the center thereof is low and the left and right ends are high, so that the speed of the game ball decreases as it rolls to the right end of the stage 256, but the warp path Since the speed of the game ball circulating in the 252 is different, the initial speed when supplied to the stage 256 is also different. For example, instead of the extended rolling surface 263, a ball contact portion is provided at the right end of the stage 256. If it is provided, depending on the speed of the game ball, it will be bounced by contact with the ball contact portion, get over the weir portion 255 of the stage 256 and drop off from the stage 256, so that the game ball is satisfactorily placed on the stage 256. It can not be moving, there is a possibility that not be entertained movement of game balls.

  On the other hand, in this example, the extended rolling surface 263 is provided at the right end of the stage 256, and even when a game ball that rolls at a predetermined speed reaches the right end of the stage 256, the extended rolling surface 263 is moved to. So that it can be prevented from falling off the stage 256 by being bounced at the right end of the stage 256. Further, in the extended rolling surface 263, a groove having a predetermined depth is formed in cooperation with the decorative member 301 and the partition plate 233 which are part of the character body 231. Even if it bounces, it is possible to prevent the game ball from dropping off from the extended rolling surface 263. Furthermore, since the extended rolling surface 263 is a flat surface with the central side (left end) of the frame-shaped decorative body 230 slightly lowered, the speed of the game ball rolling from the extended rolling surface 263 to the stage 256 is increased. The game ball can be returned to the stage 256 at a suitable speed, and the game ball can be favorably rolled on the stage 256.

  The “decorative member 301” corresponds to the “wall-like collision member” of the present invention, and the “extended rolling surface 263” and the “decorative member 301” correspond to “energy attenuating means” of the present invention.

  Further, in this example, as shown in FIGS. 11 and 58, a protruding wall portion 280 and a step 281 are provided on the right end side (the bump) of the extended rolling surface 263. 58 is an enlarged view of a part of the stage 256 and the extended rolling surface 263, and the decorative member 301 is omitted to simplify the explanation. The protruding wall portion 280 is a member integrally formed from the frame-shaped decorative body 230, and is formed on the right end side of the extended rolling surface 263 so as to protrude toward the center side of the extended rolling surface 263. Yes. The step 281 is a member integrally formed from the extended rolling surface 263 and is formed so as to protrude upward at the right end portion of the extended rolling surface 263.

  The operation of the protruding wall 280 and the step 281 will be described in detail. A game ball supplied at a predetermined initial speed via the warp passage 252 rolls from the left end to the right end of the stage 256 and extends the rolling surface 263. Supplied on top. Here, since the speeds of the game balls flowing in the warp passage 252 are different, the initial speed when supplied to the stage 256 is also different, for example, on the extended rolling surface 263 at a relatively slow speed. When the game ball is supplied to the ball, there is a possibility that the game ball ends rolling on the extended rolling surface 263 and stays on the extended rolling surface 263 as it is. In particular, at the terminal end portion (that is, the right end portion side) of the extended rolling surface 263, the rolling energy of the game ball is attenuated by colliding with the standing wall portion 282 and the decorative member 301 by the frame-shaped decorative body 230, and the momentum is easily lost. From this, it is conceivable that the ball is in a clogged state without returning to the stage 256.

  On the other hand, in this example, since the protruding wall portion 280 is provided on the right end portion side of the extended rolling surface 263, the game ball that has rolled to the end hits the protruding wall portion 280 and moves to the stage 256 side. Is pushed back. Further, the collision with the step 281 causes the ball to be bounced and pushed back toward the stage 256, so that the possibility that the game ball stays on the extended rolling surface 263 is further reduced. Thereby, the game ball can be rolled on the stage 256 satisfactorily.

  The “projection wall portion 280” and the “step 281” correspond to the “staying prevention means” of the present invention.

  Furthermore, in this example, an edge 283 is provided at the boundary between the stage 256 and the extended rolling surface 263.

  By the way, as described above, the stage 256 has a shape in which the vicinity of the center is low and the left and right ends are high. Further, the extended rolling surface 263 is formed as a flat surface in which the center side (left end) of the frame-shaped decorative body 230 is slightly lowered (that is, inclined so as to become lower toward the stage 256), and protrudes. A wall portion 280 and a step 281 are provided. Therefore, even if the rolling energy of the game ball rolling from the stage 256 to the extended rolling surface 263 is relatively low, it is pushed back to the stage 256 and urged to roll at a good speed. On the contrary, when a game ball is supplied from the stage 256 to the extended rolling surface 263 at a relatively high speed, that is, at a higher speed than necessary, the ball is repelled on the protruding wall 280 or the like. It can be considered that the decorative member 301 and the like are overturned and fall off from the extended rolling surface 263.

  On the other hand, in this example, since an edge 283 is provided at the boundary between the stage 256 and the extended rolling surface 263, the game ball that has rolled from the stage 256 to the extended rolling surface 263 has its rolling. The traveling direction of the dynamic motion is changed abruptly and moderately decelerated. For example, when the boundary portion between the stage 256 and the extended rolling surface 263 is integrally and smoothly formed (without the edge 283), the game ball is reduced in kinetic energy due to an increase in potential energy, and extended. Although the rolling speed is decelerated only by the energy attenuating means including the rolling surface 263, in this example, since the edge 283 is formed, the game ball is further decelerated by resistance caused by overcoming this. Therefore, since the game ball enters the extended rolling surface 263 at an appropriate speed, the possibility of dropping off excessively is reduced. Thereby, it becomes possible to make the player enjoy the movement of the game ball more.

  As shown in FIGS. 16 and 17, the frame-shaped decorative body 230 of the main character 213 is provided with a ball guide path 270 capable of guiding a game ball downward along the outer periphery on the left outer periphery thereof. The ball guide path 270 is in contact with the outer peripheral surface 271 of the frame-shaped decorative body 230 and the front side of the game board base 212 and extends outward so as to close the corresponding through hole 211 of the game board base 212. And a decorative flange portion 273 that extends outward at a position separated from the flange portion 272 by a predetermined distance and is decorated on the front surface. The ball guide path 270 has a substantially U-shaped cross section opened outward along the board surface of the game board 5 by the outer peripheral surface 271, the flange part 272, and the decorative flange part 273 of the frame-shaped decorative body 230. It is formed, and a game ball can be distributed in the inside.

  The ball guide path 270 is provided with a plurality of protrusions (protrusions) 274 on the inner surface side (surface surfaces facing each other) of the flange portion 272 and the decorative flange portion 273, and the protrusion 274 on the flange portion 272 side The protrusions 274 on the decorative flange portion 273 side are alternately formed at positions that do not face each other. The ball guide path 270 has a plurality of protrusions 274 so that the game balls flowing down the ball guide path 270 come into contact with the protrusions 274, thereby reducing the flow speed of the game balls and increasing the flow speed of the game balls. Can be suppressed. The ball guide path 270 is formed so as to guide the game ball to the vicinity of the lower side of the main winning opening unit 214.

  Note that the ball guide path 270 of the present example is the “discharge port guide means” of the present invention, the outer peripheral surface 271 is the “guide surface”, the flange portion 272 is the “first flange portion”, and the decorative flange portion 273 is “ The protrusion 274 corresponds to the “second flange portion” and the “deceleration means”, respectively.

  As shown in FIGS. 10 and 11, the ball guide path 270 guides the game ball driven into the upper part of the game area 37 to the vicinity of the lower side of the main winning opening unit 214. When the game ball is guided by the game ball, the possibility of winning the main prize opening unit 214 is reduced. Therefore, the game ball can be driven so that the game ball is not guided to the ball guide path 270. Becomes monotonous and can prevent the interest from deteriorating. Further, when the game ball is guided by the ball guide path 270, the flow rate of the game ball is suppressed by the projection 274, so that the game ball is prevented from being released from the ball guide path 270 and released. Prevent the game ball from coming into contact with the main prize opening unit 214, the game area decoration body 215, etc., or even if it comes into contact, the speed is reduced to reduce the impact as much as possible. It is possible to prevent 214 and the like from being damaged.

  Next, the configuration of the right movable decorative body 234 and the left movable decorative body 235, and the right movable decorative body drive unit 236 and the left movable decorative body drive unit 237 will be described in detail with reference to FIGS. First, the right movable decorative body 234 and the left movable decorative body 235 of the main character 213 are rotatable between a horizontal state extending in a substantially horizontal direction and a vertical state extending in a substantially vertical direction. As shown in FIGS. 15 and 24, the right movable decorative body 234 and the left movable decorative body 235 are configured to be continuous decorative bodies when in a horizontal state. Characters (alphabets in this example) are three-dimensionally shaped, and these characters become predetermined words when the right movable decorative body 234 and the left movable decorative body 235 are integrated.

  The right movable decorative body 234 and the left movable decorative body 235 include a decorative portion 291 in which the character portion 290 is a translucent member, a frame-shaped main body portion 292 disposed on the rear side of the decorative portion 291, A light emitting substrate 294 provided with a plurality of LEDs 293 disposed in the main body 292, a back plate 295 disposed on the rear side of the light emitting substrate 294 and closed within the frame of the main body 292, and extending rearward from a predetermined position. And a rotation shaft 296. A mounting boss 297 having a screw hole is formed on the rear side of the decorative portion 291, and a through hole 298 is formed in the back plate 295 at a position corresponding to the mounting boss 297 of the decorative portion 291. By screwing a screw (not shown) into the mounting boss 297 through the through hole 298 from the rear side of the back plate 295 with the main body 292 and the light emitting substrate 294 sandwiched between the decorative portion 291 and the back plate 295. These are assembled together (see FIGS. 21 and 22).

  The rotating shaft 296 is press-fitted and fixed in a mounting hole provided in the back plate 295, and the rotating shaft 296 is near the right end of the right movable decorative body 234, and the left end of the left movable decorative body 235. Each is located and fixed in the vicinity. Further, each back plate 295 is formed with a protrusion 299 at a predetermined position in the vicinity of the rotating shaft 296 on the rear surface thereof. As will be described in detail later, the protrusion 299 has a right movable decorative body 234 and a left movable decorative body. This is for detecting the respective rotational positions of 235.

  On the other hand, the right movable decorative body drive unit 236 and the left movable decorative body drive unit 237 rotate the right movable decorative body 234 and the left movable decorative body 235 around the axis of each rotation shaft 296. The right movable decorative body drive unit 236 and the left movable decorative body drive unit 237 include a movable decorative body drive motor 310 for rotating the right movable decorative body 234 or the left movable decorative body 235 and a movable decorative body drive motor 310. A drive gear 312 fixed to the rotation shaft 311, a transmission gear 313 that meshes with the drive gear 312 and transmits the rotation of the drive gear 312, and meshes with the transmission gear 313 to rotate the right movabl
