<Type of design>
Next, using FIGS. 5A to 5C, the first special symbol display device 212, the second special symbol display device 214, the decorative symbol display device 208, and the normal symbol display device 210 of the pachinko machine 100 are stopped and displayed. The types of special maps and general maps to be described will be described. FIG. 4A shows an example of the stop symbol form of the special figure.

  The special figure 1 variable game is started on the condition that the first start port sensor detects that the ball has entered the first special figure start port 230, and the ball has entered the second special figure start port 232 The special figure 2 variable game is started on the condition that the second start port sensor has detected. When the special figure 1 variable game is started, the first special symbol display device 212 performs “variable display of special figure 1” by repeating all lighting of seven segments and lighting of one central segment. In addition, when the special figure 2 variable game is started, the second special symbol display device 214 displays “fluctuation display of special figure 2” which repeats lighting of all seven segments and lighting of one central segment. Do. These “variation display of special figure 1” and “variation display of special figure 2” correspond to an example of the symbol fluctuation display according to the present invention. Then, when the variation time determined before the variation start of the special figure 1 (corresponding to the variation time referred to in the present invention) elapses, the first special symbol display device 212 stops and displays the special symbol form of the special figure 1. When the variation time determined before the start of variation 2 (this also corresponds to the variation time according to the present invention) has elapsed, the second special symbol display device 214 stops and displays the stop symbol form of the special diagram 2. Therefore, from the start of “figure display of special figure 1” until the stop symbol form of special figure 1 is stopped, or after the start of “fluctuation display of special figure 2”, the stop symbol form of special figure 2 is displayed. Until stop display corresponds to an example of the symbol variation stop display referred to in the present invention, hereinafter, after the “variable display of special figure 1 or 2” is started, the stop symbol form of special figure 1 or 2 is stopped and displayed. The series of displays up to is referred to as symbol variation stop display. As will be described later, the symbol variation stop display may be continuously performed a plurality of times. FIG. 10A shows 10 types of special drawings from “Special Figure A” to “Special Figure J” as stop symbol forms in the symbol variation stop display, and the white portions in the figure are turned off. The location of the segment to be displayed is shown, and the black portion indicates the location of the segment to be lit.

  “Special figure A” is a 15 round (15R) special jackpot symbol, and “Special figure B” is a 15R jackpot symbol. In the pachinko machine 100 according to the present embodiment, as will be described later, the determination as to whether or not the big hit in the special figure variable game is made by lottery of hardware random numbers, and the decision as to whether or not it is a special big hit is made by lottery of software random numbers. The difference between the jackpot and the special jackpot is the difference in whether the probability of winning the jackpot is high (special jackpot) or low (jackpot) in the next special figure variation game. Hereinafter, a state having a high probability of winning the jackpot is referred to as a special figure high probability state, and a state having a low probability is referred to as a special figure low probability state. In addition, after the 15R special jackpot game ends and after the 15R jackpot game ends, both shift to the time-saving state. Although the time reduction will be described in detail later, the state that shifts to the time reduction state is referred to as a normal high probability state, and the state that does not shift to the time reduction state is referred to as a normal low probability state. “Special figure A”, which is a 15R special jackpot symbol, is a special figure high probability normal figure high probability state, and “Special figure B”, which is a 15R jackpot symbol, is a special figure low probability ordinary figure high probability state. These “special chart A” and “special chart B” are symbols that give a relatively large profit amount to the player.

  “Special figure C” is a 2R jackpot symbol called sudden probability change, and is a special figure high probability normal figure high probability state. That is, “Special Figure C” is 2R compared to “Special Figure A” which is 15R. “Special figure D” is a 2R jackpot symbol called sudden time reduction, and is a special figure low probability normal figure high probability state. That is, “Special Figure D” is 2R compared to “Special Figure B” which is 15R.

  “Special figure E” is a 2R jackpot symbol called hidden probability change, and is a special figure high probability normal figure low probability state. "Special figure F" is a 2R jackpot symbol suddenly called normal, and is a special figure low probability normal figure low probability state. These “special drawing E” and “special drawing F” are both 2R and are in a state in which they do not shift to the time-saving state.

  “Special figure G” is the first small hit symbol, and “Special figure H” is the second small hit symbol, both of which are in the special figure low probability normal figure low probability state. The small hit here corresponds to the same as the big hit with no short time at 2R. That is, “Special Figure G” and “Special Figure H” are in the same state as “Special Figure F”, but the effects displayed on the decorative symbol display device 208 are different in both cases. By providing “G”, “Special Figure H”, and “Special Figure F”, the interest of the game is enhanced.

  In addition, “Special Figure I” is a first off symbol, and “Special Figure J” is a second off symbol, and the profit amount given to the player is a relatively small profit amount.

  In the pachinko machine 100 according to the present embodiment, symbols other than “Special Illustration A” are prepared as 15R special jackpot symbols, and the same applies to other symbols such as 15R jackpot symbols.

  FIG. 5B shows an example of a decorative design. There are 10 types of decoration patterns of the present embodiment: “Decoration 1” to “Decoration 10”. The first start port sensor detects that a ball has won the first special figure start port 230 or the second special view start port 232, that is, the ball has entered the first special view start port 230; or On the condition that the second start port sensor detects that a ball has entered the second special symbol start port 232, the left symbol display area 208a, the middle symbol display area 208b, and the right symbol display of the decorative symbol display device 208 are displayed. Displayed in the order of “decoration 1” → “decoration 2” → “decoration 3” →... “Decoration 9” → “decoration 10” → “decoration 1” →... “Decoration display of decorative pattern” is performed. When the 15R jackpot of “special drawing B” is notified, a symbol combination (for example, “decoration 1-decoration 1-decoration”) corresponding to the 15R jackpot corresponding to the 15R jackpot in the symbol display areas 208a to 208c. 1 ”or“ decoration 2—decoration 2—decoration 2 ”). When notifying the 15R special jackpot of “special drawing A”, a combination of three symbols of the same odd number of decorative symbols (for example, “decoration 3—decoration 3—decoration 3” or “decoration 7—decoration 7—decoration 7”). Etc.) is stopped and displayed.

  In addition, the 2R big hit called “hidden probability change” of “special drawing E”, the 2R big hit called “special drawing F” suddenly normal, or the first small hit of “special drawing G”, “special drawing H” When notifying the second small hit, “decoration 1-decoration 2—decoration 3” is stopped and displayed. Furthermore, in order to notify 2R jackpot called “sudden probability change” of “special drawing C” or 2R jackpot called “sudden time reduction of“ special drawing D ”,“ decoration 1-decoration 3—decoration 5 ”is set. Stop display.

  On the other hand, when notifying the first deviation of “Special Figure I” and the second deviation of “Special Figure J”, the symbol combination other than the symbol combination shown in FIG. 5B is stopped in the symbol display areas 208a to 208c. indicate.

  FIG.5 (c) shows an example of the usual stop display symbol. In the present embodiment, there are two types of stoppage display modes of “normal map A”, which is a winning symbol, and “general symbol B”, which is a missed symbol. Based on the fact that the above-mentioned gate sensor has detected that a sphere has passed through the general-purpose start opening 228, the normal symbol display device 210 repeats all lighting of the seven segments and lighting of the central one segment. Perform a “normal change display”. Then, when notifying the winning of the common figure variable game, the “normal figure A” is stopped and displayed, and when notifying the deviation of the common figure variable game, the “normal figure B” is stopped and displayed. Also in FIG. 6C, the white portions in the figure indicate the locations of the segments that are turned off, and the black portions indicate the locations of the segments that are turned on.

<Main control unit main processing>
Next, main control unit main processing executed by the CPU 304 of the main control unit 300 will be described with reference to FIG. This figure is a flowchart showing the flow of main processing of the main control unit.

  As described above, the main control unit 300 is provided with the start signal output circuit (reset signal output circuit) 340 that outputs the start signal (reset signal) when the power is turned on. The CPU 304 of the basic circuit 302 to which this activation signal has been input resets by a reset interrupt and executes the main process of the main control unit shown in FIG.

  In step S101, initial setting 1 is performed. In this initial setting 1, setting of a stack initial value (temporary setting) to the stack pointer (SP) of the CPU 304, setting of an interrupt mask, initial setting of the I / O 310, initial setting of various variables stored in the RAM 308, to the WDT 314 The operation is permitted and the initial value is set. In the present embodiment, a numerical value corresponding to 32.8 ms is set in WDT 314 as an initial value.

  In step S103, the value of the counter of WDT 314 is cleared and time measurement by WDT 314 is restarted.

  In step S105, whether or not the low voltage signal is on, that is, the voltage value of the power supply that the voltage monitoring circuit 338 supplies from the power supply control unit 660 to the main control unit 300 is a predetermined value (in this embodiment, 9v), it is monitored whether or not a low voltage signal indicating that the voltage has dropped is output. Then, when the low voltage signal is on (when the CPU 304 detects that the power supply is cut off), the process returns to step S103, and when the low voltage signal is off (when the CPU 304 does not detect that the power supply is cut off), the step is performed. The process proceeds to S107. Even when the predetermined value (9 V) is not yet reached immediately after the power is turned on, the process returns to step S103, and step S105 is repeatedly executed until the supply voltage becomes equal to or higher than the predetermined value.

  In step S107, initial setting 2 is performed. In this initial setting 2, a process for setting a numerical value for determining a cycle for executing a main control unit timer interrupt process, which will be described later, in the counter timer 312 and a predetermined port of the I / O 310 (for example, a test output port, A process of outputting a clear signal from the output port to the first sub control unit 400, a setting for permitting writing to the RAM 308, and the like are performed.

  In step S109, it is determined whether or not to return to the state before power interruption (before power interruption), and the state before power interruption is not restored (when the basic circuit 302 of the main control unit 300 is set to the initial state). ) Proceeds to an initialization process (step S113).

  Specifically, first, a RAM clear signal transmitted when a store clerk or the like of an amusement store operates the RWM clear switch 180 provided on the power supply board is turned on (indicates that there has been an operation). That is, it is determined whether or not the RAM clear is necessary. If the RAM clear signal is on (when the RAM clear is necessary), the process proceeds to step S113 to set the basic circuit 302 to the initial state. On the other hand, when the RAM clear signal is OFF (when the RAM clear is not necessary), the power status information stored in the power status storage area provided in the RAM 308 is read, and the power status information is information indicating suspend. It is determined whether or not. If the power status information is not information indicating suspend, the process proceeds to step S113 to set the basic circuit 302 to an initial state. If the power status information is information indicating suspend, a predetermined area of the RAM 308 is set. A checksum is calculated by adding all the 1-byte data stored in (for example, all areas) to a 1-byte register whose initial value is 0, and the calculated checksum results in a specific value (for example, 0) (whether or not the checksum result is normal). When the checksum result is a specific value (eg, 0) (when the checksum result is normal), the process proceeds to step S111 to return to the state before the power interruption, and the checksum result is a specific value. If the value is other than 0 (for example, 0) (if the result of the checksum is abnormal), the process proceeds to step S113 to set the pachinko machine 100 to the initial state. Similarly, when the power status information indicates information other than “suspend”, the process proceeds to step S113.

  In step S111, power recovery processing is performed. In this power recovery process, the value of the stack pointer stored in the stack pointer save area provided in the RAM 308 at the time of power failure is read out and reset to the stack pointer (this setting). In addition, the value of each register stored in the register save area provided in the RAM 308 at the time of power interruption is read out and reset in each register, and then the interrupt permission is set. Thereafter, as a result of the CPU 304 executing the control program based on the reset stack pointer and registers, the pachinko machine 100 returns to the state when the power is turned off. That is, the processing is resumed from the instruction next to the instruction (predetermined in step S115) performed immediately before branching to the timer interrupt process (described later) immediately before the power interruption. A RAM 308 mounted on the basic circuit 302 in the main control unit 300 shown in FIG. 4 is provided with a transmission information storage area. In step S111, a power recovery command is set in the transmission information storage area. This power recovery command is a command indicating that the power has been restored to the state at the time of power-off, and is transmitted to the first sub-control unit 400 in step S233 in the timer interrupt process of the main control unit 300 described later.

  In step S113, initialization processing is performed. In this initialization process, interrupt prohibition setting, stack initial value setting to the stack pointer (this setting), initialization of all storage areas of the RAM 308, and the like are performed. Further, here, a normal return command is set in the transmission information storage area provided in the RAM 308 of the main control unit 300. This normal return command is a command indicating that the initialization process (step S113) of the main control unit 300 has been performed, and in the same way as the power recovery command, in step S233 in the timer interrupt process of the main control unit 300, 1 is transmitted to the sub-control unit 400.

  In step S115, after setting for prohibition of interruption, a basic random number initial value update process is performed. In this basic random number initial value update process, two initial value generation random number counters for generating the initial values of the ordinary figure winning random number counter and the special figure random value counter, the ordinary figure timer random number value, and the special figure timer, respectively. Two random number counters for generating each random value are updated. For example, if the range of values that can be taken as a normal timer random number value is 0 to 100, a value is acquired from a random number counter storage area for generating a normal timer random value provided in the RAM 308, and 1 is added to the acquired value. Then, it is stored in the original random number counter storage area. At this time, if the result of adding 1 to the acquired value is 101, 0 is stored in the original random number counter storage area. Other initial value generation random number counters and random number counters are similarly updated. Note that the initial value generation random number counter is also updated in step S207 described later.

  The main control unit 300 repeatedly executes the process of step S115 except during a timer interrupt process that starts every predetermined period.

<Main control unit timer interrupt processing>
Next, the main control unit timer interrupt process executed by the CPU 304 of the main control unit 300 will be described with reference to FIG. This figure is a flowchart showing the flow of the main control unit timer interrupt process.

  The main control unit 300 includes a counter timer 312 that generates a timer interrupt signal at a predetermined cycle (in this embodiment, about once every 2 ms), and the main control unit timer interrupt is triggered by this timer interrupt signal. The process is started at a predetermined cycle.

  In step S201, a timer interrupt start process is performed. In this timer interrupt start process, a process of temporarily saving each register value of the CPU 304 to the stack area is performed.

  In step S203, the WDT is periodically updated (so that the count value of the WDT 314 exceeds the initial setting value (32.8 ms in the present embodiment) and no WDT interruption occurs (so as not to detect a processing abnormality). In the embodiment, the restart is performed once every about 2 ms, which is the period of the main control unit timer interrupt.

  In step S205, input port state update processing is performed. In this input port state update process, the detection signals of various sensors 320 including the above-mentioned front frame door open sensor, inner frame open sensor, lower pan full sensor, and various ball detection sensors are input via the input port of the I / O 310. The input is monitored for the presence or absence of a detection signal, and stored in a signal state storage area provided for each of the various sensors 320 in the RAM 308. If the detection signal of the sphere detection sensor is described as an example, information on the presence / absence of the detection signal of each sphere detection sensor detected in the timer interruption process (about 4 ms before) is stored in the RAM 308 for each sphere detection sensor. This information is read out from the previous detection signal storage area partitioned and stored in the RAM 308 in the previous detection signal storage area partitioned for each sphere detection sensor, and the previous timer interrupt processing (about 2 ms before) ) Is read from the current detection signal storage area provided for each sphere detection sensor in the RAM 308, and this information is read out from the previous detection signal storage area described above. To remember. Further, the detection signal of each sphere detection sensor detected this time is stored in the above-described current detection signal storage area.

  Further, in step S205, the information on the presence or absence of the detection signal of each sphere detection sensor stored in each storage area of the above-mentioned detection signal storage area, the previous detection signal storage area, and the current detection signal storage area is compared. It is determined whether or not the information on the presence or absence of detection signals for the past three times in the ball detection sensor matches the winning determination pattern information. This main control unit timer interrupt process that is repeatedly started at a very short interval of about 2 ms while one game ball passes one ball detection sensor is started several times. For this reason, every time the main control unit timer interrupt process is activated, in step S205 described above, a detection signal indicating that the same game ball has passed the same ball detection sensor is confirmed. As a result, a detection signal indicating that the same game ball has passed the same ball detection sensor is stored in each of the detection signal storage area, the previous detection signal storage area, and the current detection signal storage area. That is, when the game ball starts to pass through the ball detection sensor, there is no detection signal before the previous time, there is a previous detection signal, and there is a detection signal this time. In the present embodiment, in consideration of erroneous detection of the sphere detection sensor and noise, it is determined that there is a prize when the detection signal is stored twice continuously after no detection signal. The ROM 306 of the main control unit 300 shown in FIG. 4 stores winning determination pattern information (in this embodiment, information indicating that there is no previous detection signal, that there is a previous detection signal, and that there is a current detection signal). In this step S205, information on the presence or absence of detection signals for the past three times in each sphere detection sensor is predetermined winning determination pattern information (in this embodiment, no previous detection signal, previous detection signal, current detection signal present). In the case of the general winning port 226, the variable winning port 234, the first special figure starting port 230, and the second special figure starting port 232, or the ordinary drawing starting port 228. Is determined to have passed. In other words, it is determined that a prize has been awarded to the winning ports 226 and 234 and the starting ports 230, 232, and 228. For example, when the information on the presence / absence of the detection signals for the past three matches with the above-described winning determination pattern information in the general winning opening sensor for detecting the winning at the general winning opening 226, there is a winning at the general winning opening 226. If the information on the presence / absence of detection signals for the past three times does not match the above-described winning determination pattern information, the subsequent general winnings are performed. The process branches to the subsequent process without performing the process associated with winning the prize to the mouth 226. Note that the ROM 306 of the main control unit 300 stores winning determination clear pattern information (in this embodiment, information indicating that there is a detection signal before the previous time, no previous detection signal, and no current detection signal). After it is determined that there has been a single win, it is not determined that there has been a win until the information on the presence or absence of detection signals for the past three times matches the winning determination clear pattern information in each ball detection sensor, and the winning determination is cleared. If it matches the pattern information, it is next determined whether or not it matches the winning determination pattern information.

  In step S207 and step S209, basic random number initial value update processing and basic random number update processing are performed. In these basic random number initial value update processing and basic random number update processing, the value of the initial value generation random number counter performed in step S115 is updated, and then the normal winning random number value used in the main control unit 300, Two random number counters for generating the special figure 1 random value and the special figure 2 random value are updated. For example, if the range of values that can be taken as a random number value for a normal winning number is 0 to 100, a value is acquired from a random number counter storage area for generating a normal winning random number value provided in the RAM 308, and 1 is added to the acquired value. Then, it is stored in the original random number counter storage area. At this time, if the result of adding 1 to the acquired value is 101, 0 is stored in the original random number counter storage area. If it is determined that the random number counter has made one round as a result of adding 1 to the acquired value, the value of the initial value generating random number counter corresponding to each random number counter is acquired and stored in the storage area of the random number counter. set. For example, a value is acquired from a random number counter for generating a regular winning random number that fluctuates in a numerical range of 0 to 100, and a result obtained by adding 1 to the acquired value is stored in a predetermined initial value storage area provided in the RAM 308. If the value is equal to the previously set initial value (for example, 7), the value is acquired as an initial value from the initial value generation random number counter corresponding to the random number counter for generating the random number for winning the normal number, The initial value set this time is stored in the above-described initial value storage area in order to determine that the random number counter for generating the winning random number value has made one round next time, in addition to setting it in the random number counter for generating the winning random value Keep it. Further, apart from the above-described initial value storage area for determining that the random number counter for generating the random number for winning the normal signal has made one round next, it is determined that the random number counter for generating the special figure random number has made one round. An initial value storage area is provided in the RAM 308. In the present embodiment, the counter for acquiring the random number value of FIG. 1 and the counter for acquiring the random value of FIG. 2 are separately provided, but the same counter may be used.

  In step S211, effect random number update processing is performed. In this effect random number update process, a random number counter for generating an effect random number used by the main control unit 300 is updated.

  In step S213, timer update processing is performed. In this timer update process, the normal symbol display symbol update timer for timing the time for the symbol to be changed / stopped on the normal symbol display device 210, and the time for the symbol to be changed / stopped to be displayed on the first special symbol display device 212 are timed. Special symbol 1 display symbol update timer for performing, special symbol 2 display symbol update timer for measuring the time for the symbol to be changed and stopped on the second special symbol display device 214, a predetermined winning effect time, a predetermined opening time Various timers including a timer for measuring a predetermined closing time, a predetermined end effect period, and the like are updated.

  In step S215, winning prize counter update processing is performed. In this winning opening counter updating process, when winning holes 226, 234 and starting holes 230, 232, 228 are won, the RAM 308 stores the winning ball number storage area provided for each winning hole or for each starting hole. The value is read out, 1 is added, and the original prize ball number storage area is set.

  In step S217, a winning acceptance process is performed. In this winning acceptance process, it is determined whether or not there has been a winning at the first special figure starting port 230, the second special figure starting port 232, the ordinary drawing starting port 228, and the variable winning port 234. Here, the determination is made using the determination result of whether or not it matches the winning determination pattern information in step S203. When a winning is made at the first special figure starting port 230 and the corresponding reserved number storage area provided in the RAM 308 is not full, the value is stored in the special counter value storage register of the counter circuit 318. And a value from the random number counter for generating the special figure 1 random value as a special figure 1 random value and storing it in the corresponding random value storage area. When a winning is made to the second special figure starting port 232 and the corresponding reserved number storage area provided in the RAM 308 is not full, the value is sent from the winning counter value storage register of the counter circuit 318 to the special figure 2 winning random number value. And a value from the random number counter for generating the special figure 2 random value as a special figure 2 random value and storing it in the corresponding random value storage area. If there is a win at the general figure starting port 228 and the corresponding reserved number storage area provided in the RAM 308 is not full, the value is obtained as a normal figure winning random number value from the random number counter for generating the normal figure winning random number value. Store in the corresponding random value storage area. When there is a winning at the variable winning opening 234, information indicating that a ball has entered the variable winning opening 234 is stored in the winning storage area for the variable winning opening.

  In step S219, a payout request number transmission process is performed. Note that the output schedule information and the payout request information output to the payout control unit 600 are composed of, for example, 1 byte, strobe information (indicating that data is set when ON), bit 6 Power-on information (if turned on, indicates that this is the first command transmission after power-on), bits 4-5 indicate the current processing type for encryption (0-3), and bits 0-3 indicate encryption The number of payout requests after processing is shown.

  In step S221, a normal state update process is performed. This normal state update process performs one of a plurality of processes corresponding to the normal state. For example, in the normal state update process in the middle of the normal symbol display (the above-described general symbol display symbol update timer value is 1 or more), the 7-segment LED constituting the normal symbol display device 210 is repeatedly turned on and off. Turns off drive control. By performing this control, the normal symbol display device 210 performs a usual fluctuation display (ordinary figure fluctuation game).

  Also, in the normal state update process at the timing when the normal symbol change time has elapsed (the timing at which the value of the general symbol display symbol update timer has changed from 1 to 0), if the hit flag is on, the hit symbol display mode When the 7-segment LED constituting the normal symbol display device 210 is turned on / off, the normal symbol display device 210 is configured so as to display the off symbol when the hit flag is off. 7 segment LED on / off drive control is performed. Further, the RAM 308 of the main control unit 300 is provided with a setting area for performing various settings in various processes, not limited to the normal state update process. Here, the above-described lighting / extinguishing drive control is performed, and the setting area is set to indicate that the normal stop display is being performed. By performing this control, the normal symbol display device 210 determines the symbol of either the winning symbol (the common symbol A shown in FIG. 5C) or the off symbol (the universal symbol B shown in FIG. 5C). Display. Thereafter, information indicating the stop period is set in a storage area of a normal stop time management timer provided in the RAM 308 in order to maintain the display for a predetermined stop display period (for example, 500 msec). With this setting, the symbol that has been confirmed and displayed is stopped and displayed for a predetermined period, and the player is notified of the result of the normal game.

  Further, if the result of the usual figure variable game is a hit, the usual figure hit flag is turned on as will be described later. When the usual figure hit flag is on, in the usual figure state update process at the timing when the predetermined stop display period ends (when the usual figure stop time management timer value changes from 1 to 0), The normal operation is set in the setting area, and the blade member 232a is opened to the solenoid (332) for opening and closing the blade member 232a of the second special figure starting port 232 for a predetermined opening period (for example, 2 seconds). And a signal indicating the open period is set in the storage area of the blade open time management timer provided in the RAM 308.

  In the usual state update process that starts at the timing when the predetermined opening period ends (the timing when the value of the blade opening time management timer is changed from 1 to 0), the blade member has a predetermined closing period (for example, 500 milliseconds). A signal for holding the blade member in the closed state is output to the opening / closing drive solenoid 332, and information indicating the closing period is set in the storage area of the blade closing time management timer provided in the RAM 308.

  Further, in the normal state update process that starts at the timing when the predetermined closing period ends (when the value of the blade closing time management timer is changed from 1 to 0), the non-operating state is set in the setting area of the RAM 308. To do. Further, if the result of the usual figure variable game is out of play, the usual figure out flag is turned on as will be described later. When the usual figure off flag is on, even in the usual figure state update process at the timing when the above-mentioned predetermined stop display period ends (when the value of the usual figure stop time management timer is changed from 1 to 0), In the setting area of the RAM 308, normal operation inactive is set. In the general state update process in the case where the general map is not operating, nothing is done and the process proceeds to the next step S223.

  In step S223, a general drawing related lottery process is performed. In this general map-related lottery process, the open / close control of the general map variable game and the second special map start port 232 is not performed (the state of the general map is not in operation), and the pending general map variable game is not held. When the number is 1 or more, it is decided whether to win or not to win the result of the variable figure game by random lottery based on the random number value stored in the random number value storage area. When the winning judgment is made and the winning is made, the winning flag provided in the RAM 308 is set to ON. If unsuccessful, turn off the winning flag. Regardless of the result of the hit determination, next, the value of the random number counter for generating the normal figure timer random value is acquired as the normal figure timer random number value, and a plurality of fluctuation times are obtained based on the acquired general figure timer random number value. One time is selected for variably displaying the normal map on the general map display device 210, and this variable time is stored as a normal map variable time in a general map variable time storage area provided in the RAM 308. In addition, the number of pending general figure variable games is stored in the usual figure pending number storage area provided in the RAM 308, and from the number of pending custom figure variable games each time a hit determination is made. The value obtained by subtracting 1 is re-stored in the usual figure number-of-holds storage area. Also, the random number value used for the hit determination is deleted.

  Next, in step S225 and step S227, special figure state update processing for special figure 1 and special figure 2 is performed. First, special figure state update processing (special figure 2 state update process) for special figure 2 is performed. This is performed (step S225). In the special figure 2 state update process, one of the following eight processes is performed in accordance with the state of the special figure 2. For example, in the special figure 2 state update process in the middle of the special figure 2 fluctuation display (the value of the above-mentioned special figure 2 display symbol update timer is 1 or more), the 7-segment LED constituting the second special symbol display device 214 is turned on. Performs lighting / extinguishing drive control that repeatedly turns off. By performing this control, the second special symbol display device 214 performs the variable display of the special figure 2 (special figure 2 variable game).

  In addition, predetermined transmission information indicating that the rotation start setting transmission process is to be executed in the command setting transmission process (step S233) is additionally stored in the transmission information storage area, and the process ends.

  Further, the RAM 308 of the main control unit 300 includes a 15R big hit flag, a 2R big hit flag, a first small hit flag, a second small hit flag, a first off flag, a second off flag, a special figure probability variation flag, and a normal figure. A flag for each probability variation flag is prepared. In the special figure 2 state update process starting at the timing when the special figure 2 fluctuation time has elapsed (the timing when the special figure 2 display symbol update timer value has changed from 1 to 0), the 15R jackpot flag is on, the special figure probability fluctuation flag 5 is on, the special figure A and 15R jackpot flags shown in FIG. 5A are on, the special figure probability fluctuation flag is off, and the common figure probability fluctuation flag is on. Special figure B, 2R jackpot flag is on, special figure probability fluctuation flag is on, and special figure probability fluctuation flag is on. Special figure C, 2R big hit flag is on, special figure probability fluctuation flag is off, general figure probability When the fluctuation flag is on, the special figure D, 2R jackpot flag is on, the special figure probability fluctuation flag is also on, and when the common figure probability fluctuation flag is on, the special figure E, 2R jackpot flag is on, the special figure probability Fluctuation flag is off, normal figure probability When the dynamic flag is also off, special figure F, when the first small hit flag is on, special figure G, when the second small hit flag is on, special figure H, when the first off flag is on The special segment I and the second off-set flag are turned on, the 7-segment LED constituting the second special symbol display device 214 is turned on / off so that the respective modes of the special diagram I are turned on. Is set to indicate that the special figure 2 stop display is in progress. By performing this control, the second special symbol display device 214 has a 15R special jackpot symbol (special symbol A), a 15R jackpot symbol (special symbol B), a sudden probability variation symbol (special symbol C), and a sudden time-short symbol symbol (special symbol). D), hidden probability variation (special E), suddenly normal (special F), first small hit (special G), second small hit (special H), first off symbol (special) Any one of the symbols I) and the second off-set symbol (special symbol J) is confirmed and displayed. After that, information indicating the stop period is set in the storage area of the special figure 2 stop time management timer provided in the RAM 308 in order to maintain the display for a predetermined stop display period (for example, 500 milliseconds). With this setting, the specially displayed special figure 2 is stopped and displayed for a predetermined period, and the result of the special figure 2 variable game is notified to the player. In addition, if the time reduction number stored in the time reduction number storage unit provided in the RAM 308 is 1 or more, 1 is subtracted from the time reduction number, and if the subtraction result becomes 1 to 0, the special figure probability is changing. If not (details will be described later), the time reduction flag is turned off. Further, the hourly flag is also turned off during the big hit game (in the special game state).

  Further, the special transmission information indicating that the rotation stop setting transmission process is executed in the command setting transmission process (step S233) is additionally stored in the above-described transmission information storage area, and the design for stopping the variable display is shown in FIG. The special figure 2 identification information indicating the presence is additionally stored in the RAM 308 as information to be included in command data, which will be described later, and the processing is terminated.

  If the result of the special figure 2 variable game is a big hit, the big hit flag is turned on as will be described later. When the jackpot flag is on, in the special figure 2 state update process at the timing when the predetermined stop display period ends (the timing when the special figure 2 stop time management timer value changes from 1 to 0), the RAM 308 In the setting area, the special figure 2 is in operation and waits for a predetermined winning effect period (for example, 3 seconds), that is, a period during which an image for notifying the player that the big win by the decorative symbol display device 208 is started is displayed. Therefore, information indicating the winning effect period is set in the storage area of the special figure 2 standby time management timer provided in the RAM 308. Further, predetermined transmission information indicating that the winning effect setting transmission process is executed in the command setting transmission process (step S233) is additionally stored in the transmission information storage area.

  Further, in the special figure 2 state update process that starts at the timing when the predetermined winning effect period ends (the timing when the value of the special figure 2 standby time management timer changes from 1 to 0), a predetermined release period (for example, 29 seconds) Alternatively, the door member 234a is opened to the solenoid (332) for opening and closing the door member 234a of the variable prize opening 234 until a winning of a predetermined number of balls (for example, 10 balls) is detected at the variable prize opening 234. In addition to outputting a signal to be held at the same time, information indicating the opening period is set in the storage area of the door opening time management timer provided in the RAM 308. In addition, predetermined transmission information indicating that the special winning opening release setting transmission process is executed in the command setting transmission process (step S233) is additionally stored in the transmission information storage area.

  In the special figure 2 state update process that starts at the timing when the predetermined opening period ends (the timing when the door opening time management timer value changes from 1 to 0), the predetermined closing period (for example, 1.5 seconds) A signal for holding the door member 234a in a closed state is output to a solenoid (332) for opening and closing the door member 234a of the variable prize opening 234, and a closing period is stored in a storage area of a door closing time management timer provided in the RAM 308. Set the information indicating. In addition, predetermined transmission information indicating that the special winning opening closing setting transmission process is executed in the command setting transmission process (step S233) is additionally stored in the transmission information storage area.

  In addition, in the special figure 2 state update process that starts at the timing when the door member opening / closing control is repeated a predetermined number of times (15 rounds or 2 rounds in this embodiment) and finished, a predetermined end effect period (for example, 3 seconds) In other words, the effect standby period is stored in the storage area of the effect standby time management timer provided in the RAM 308 in order to set to wait for a period during which an image for informing the player that the big hit by the decorative symbol display device 208 is to be ended is displayed. Set the information indicating. Also, if the normal probability fluctuation flag is set to ON, at the same time as the end of the big hit game, the time reduction number 100 is set in the time reduction number storage unit provided in the RAM 308, and the time reduction flag provided in the RAM 308 is set. Turn on. If the usual time probability variation flag is set to OFF, the time reduction number is not set in the time reduction number storage unit, and the time reduction flag is not turned ON. The short time here means that the pachinko machine is in an advantageous state for the player in order to shorten the time from the end of the big hit in the special figure variable game to the start of the next big hit. If the short time flag is set to ON at this time, it is a normal high probability state. There is a higher probability of hitting a general-purpose variable game in the high-probability state than in the low-probability state. In addition, the fluctuation time of the normal figure variable game and the fluctuation time of the special figure variable game are shorter in the normal figure high probability state than in the normal figure low probability state. Further, in the normal high probability state, the opening time in one opening of the pair of blade members 232a of the second special start port 232 tends to be longer than in the normal low probability state. In addition, the pair of blade members 232a are more likely to open in the normal high probability state than in the normal low probability state. In addition, as described above, the hourly flag is set to off during the big hit game (in the special game state). Therefore, the normal low probability state is maintained during the big hit game. This is because if the game is in a high probability state during a big hit game, a large number of games will be placed in the second special figure starting port 232 until a predetermined number of game balls are entered during the big win game. There is a problem that a ball enters and the number of game balls that can be acquired during a big hit increases, resulting in an increase in euphoria. This is to solve this problem.

  Further, predetermined transmission information indicating that the end effect setting transmission process is executed in the command setting transmission process (step S233) is additionally stored in the transmission information storage area.

  Also, in the special figure 2 state update process that starts at the timing when the predetermined end production period ends (when the production standby time management timer value changes from 1 to 0), the special figure 2 is not activated in the setting area of the RAM 308. Set medium. Furthermore, if the result of the special figure 2 variable game is out of place, the out-of-game flag is turned on as described later. In the case where the miss flag is on, even in the special figure 2 state update process at the timing when the predetermined stop display period described above ends (the timing when the special figure 2 stop time management timer value changes from 1 to 0), In the setting area of the RAM 308, special figure 2 inactive is set. In the special figure 2 state update process when the special figure 2 is not in operation, nothing is done and the process proceeds to the next step S227.

  Subsequently, special figure state update processing (special figure 1 state update process) for special figure 1 is performed (step S227). In the special figure 1 state update process, each process described in the special figure 2 state update process is performed according to the state of the special figure 1. Each process performed in the special figure 1 state update process is the same as the process in which “special figure 2” in the contents described in the special figure 2 state update process is replaced with “special figure 1”. Omitted. The order of the special figure 2 state update process and the special figure 1 state update process may be reversed.

  When the special figure state update process in step S225 and step S227 is completed, a special figure related lottery process for each of special figure 1 and special figure 2 is performed as step S229 and step S231. Also here, first, a special drawing related lottery process for special figure 2 (a special drawing 2 related lottery process) is performed (step S229), and then a special drawing related lottery process for special figure 1 (a special drawing 1 related lottery process). ) Is performed (step S231). Also for these special drawing related lottery processes, the main control unit 300 performs the special figure 2 related lottery processing before the special figure 1 related lottery processing, so that the special figure 2 variable game start condition and the special figure 1 fluctuation Even if the game start conditions are satisfied at the same time, since the special figure 2 variable game is changing first, the special figure 1 variable game does not start changing. Further, the notification of the result of the jackpot determination of the special figure variable game by the decorative symbol display device 208 is performed by the first sub-control unit 400, and the lottery result of the lottery based on the winning at the second special figure starting port 232 is notified. However, it is performed in preference to the notification of the lottery result of the lottery based on the winning at the first special figure starting port 230. The special drawing related lottery process will be described in detail later.

  In step S233, command setting transmission processing is performed, and various commands are transmitted to the first sub-control unit 400. The output schedule information to be transmitted to the first sub-control unit 400 is composed of 16 bits, for example, bit 15 is strobe information (indicating that data is set when ON), bits 11 to 14 are Command type (In this embodiment, command types such as basic command, symbol variation start command, symbol variation stop command, winning effect start command, end effect start command, jackpot round number designation command, power recovery command, FRAM clear command are specified. Possible information), bits 0 to 10 are composed of command data (predetermined information corresponding to the command type).

  Specifically, the strobe information is turned on and off in the command transmission process described above. If the command type is a symbol variation start command, the command data includes information such as the value of the 15R jackpot flag or 2R jackpot flag, the value of the special figure probability variation flag, the timer number selected in the special figure related lottery process, and the like. In the case of the symbol variation stop command, the value of the 15R jackpot flag, the 2R jackpot flag, the value of the special figure probability variation flag, and the like are included. In the case of a jackpot round number designation command, the value of the special variation probability flag, the number of jackpot rounds, and the like are included. When the command type indicates a basic command, device information in the command data, presence / absence of winning at the first special figure starting port 230, presence / absence of winning at the second special figure starting port 232, winning of the variable winning port 234 Includes presence or absence.

  In the rotation start setting transmission process described above, the value of the 15R big hit flag or 2R big hit flag, the value of the special figure probability variation flag, the special figure 1 related lottery process, and the special figure 2 related are stored in the RAM 308 as command data. Information indicating the timer number selected in the lottery process, the number of the first special figure variable game or the second special figure variable game held, etc. is set. In the rotation stop setting transmission process described above, information indicating the value of the 15R big hit flag, the value of the 2R big hit flag, the value of the special figure probability variation flag, etc. stored in the RAM 308 is set in the command data. In the winning effect setting transmission process described above, the command control data stored in the RAM 308, the effect control information output to the decorative symbol display device 208, various lamps 418, and the speaker 120 during the winning effect period, the special figure probability variation flag Information indicating the value, the number of the first special figure variable game or the second special figure variable game being held, etc. is set. In the above-described end effect setting transmission process, the command control data stored in the RAM 308, the effect control information output to the decorative symbol display device 208, various lamps 418, and the speaker 120 during the effect standby period, the special figure probability variation flag Information indicating the value, the number of the first special figure variable game or the second special figure variable game being held, etc. is set. In the above-described large winning opening release setting transmission process, the number of big hits stored in the RAM 308 in the command data, the value of the special figure probability variation flag, the pending first special figure variation game or the second special figure variation game is stored. Set information such as number. In the above-mentioned big winning opening closing setting transmission process, the number of big hits stored in the RAM 308 in the command data, the value of the special figure probability variation flag, the pending first special figure variation game or the second special figure variation game is stored. Set information such as number. In step S233, general command special figure hold increase processing is also performed. In this general command special figure hold increasing process, special figure identification information (information showing special figure 1 or special figure 2) stored in the transmission information storage area of the RAM 308 is set in the command data.

  In the first sub-control unit 400, it is possible to determine the production control according to the change of the game control in the main control unit 300 by the command type included in the received output schedule information, and it is included in the output schedule information. Based on the information of the command data, the contents of effect control can be determined.

  In step S235, an external output signal setting process is performed. In this external output signal setting process, the game information stored in the RAM 308 is output to the information input circuit 350 separate from the pachinko machine 100 via the information output circuit 336.

  In step S237, device monitoring processing is performed. In this device monitoring process, the signal states of the various sensors stored in the signal state storage area in step S205 are read, and the presence or absence of a predetermined error, for example, the presence or absence of a front frame door opening error or the presence or absence of a full tray error is monitored. When the front frame door opening error or the lower pan full error is detected, the transmission information to be transmitted to the first sub-control unit 400 includes device information indicating the presence or absence of the front frame door opening error or the lower pan full error. Set. Further, various solenoids 332 are driven to control the opening and closing of the second special figure starting port 232 and the variable prize opening 234, and the normal symbol display device 210 and the first special symbol display via the display circuits 324, 326 and 330. Display data to be output to the device 212, the second special symbol display device 214, the various status display units 328, and the like is set in the output port of the I / O 310. Further, the output schedule information set in the payout request number transmission process (step S219) is output to the first sub-control unit 400 via the output port (I / O 310).

  In step S239, it is monitored whether or not the low voltage signal is on. Then, when the low voltage signal is on (when power supply cutoff is detected), the process proceeds to step S243, and when the low voltage signal is off (when power supply cutoff is not detected), the process proceeds to step S241.

  In step S241, timer interrupt end processing is performed. In this timer interrupt end process, the value of each register temporarily saved in step S201 is set in each original register, interrupt permission is set, etc., and then the main control unit main process shown in FIG. Return to.

  On the other hand, in step S243, a specific variable or stack pointer for returning to the power-off state at the time of power recovery is saved in a predetermined area of the RAM 308 as return data, and power-off processing such as initialization of input / output ports is performed. After that, the process returns to the main process of the main control unit shown in FIG.

  <Processing of first sub-control unit 400>

  The process of the first sub control unit 400 will be described with reference to FIG. FIG. 5A is a flowchart of main processing executed by the CPU 404 of the first sub control unit 400. FIG. 5B is a flowchart of command reception interrupt processing of the first sub control unit 400. FIG. 4C is a flowchart of the timer variable interrupt process of the first sub control unit 400. FIG. 4D is a flowchart of the image control process of the first sub control unit 400.

<First sub-control unit main process>
First, in step S301 of the main process of the first sub control unit 400, various initial settings are performed. When the power is turned on, an initialization process is first executed in step S301. In this initialization processing, initialization of input / output ports, initialization processing of a storage area in the RAM 408, and the like are performed.

  In step S303, it is determined whether or not the timer variable is 10 or more. This process is repeated until the timer variable becomes 10, and when the timer variable becomes 10 or more, the process proceeds to step S305.

  In step S305, 0 is substituted into the timer variable.

  In step S307, command processing is performed. The CPU 404 of the first sub control unit 400 determines whether a command has been received from the main control unit 300.

  In step S309, effect control processing is performed. For example, when there is a new command in step S307, processing such as reading effect data corresponding to the command from the ROM 406 is performed, and when update of the effect data is necessary, effect data update processing is performed.

In step S311, the chance button detection sensor 426 that detects the pressing of the chance button 136 is monitored. When the pressing of the chance button 136 is detected, the effect data updated in step S309 is changed to the effect data corresponding to the pressing of the chance button 136. Perform the change process. Although details will be described later, in the present embodiment, a button reception period is provided in which the pressing operation of the chance button 136 can be received during the variable display of the special figure and the decorative symbol. In this button reception period, it is assumed that time measurement is started when a predetermined time has elapsed since the start of fluctuation (for example, when t 0 seconds in FIG. 13B has elapsed).

  Also, at the start of this button reception period, effect data for notifying the player that the pressing operation of the chance button 136 can be received is prepared, and in the image control process described later, for example, FIG. ) (In this example, display of an image simulating the chance button 136) is performed. In addition, when it is detected that the chance button 136 is pressed during the button reception period, effect data for performing the advance notice is prepared, and, for example, as shown on the right side of FIG. A notice is made (in this example, the text “Gekiatsu!” Is displayed). Then, after the button reception period (for example, 6 seconds) elapses, the time measurement is ended, and a process for deleting the notification of the button reception period and the notice is performed.

  In step S313, if there is a command to VDP 434 in the effect data read in step S309, this command is output to VDP 434 (details will be described later).

  In step S315, if there is a command to the sound source IC 416 in the effect data read in step S309, this command is output to the sound source IC 416.

  In step S317, if there is a command to the various lamps 418 in the effect data read in step S309, this command is output to the drive circuit 420.

  In step S319, if there is a command to the shielding device 246 in the effect data read in step S309, this command is output to the drive circuit 432.

  In step S321, if there is a control command to be transmitted to the second sub control unit 500 in the effect data read in step S309, the control command is set to be output, and the process returns to step S303.

<First sub-control unit command reception interrupt processing>
Next, the command reception interrupt process of the first sub-control unit 400 will be described using FIG. This command reception interrupt process is a process executed when the first sub-control unit 400 detects a strobe signal output from the main control unit 300. In step S401 of the command reception interrupt process, the command output from the main control unit 300 is stored as an unprocessed command in a command storage area provided in the RAM 408.

<First sub-control unit timer interrupt processing>
Next, the first sub control unit timer interrupt process executed by the CPU 404 of the first sub control unit 400 will be described with reference to FIG. The first sub-control unit 400 includes a hardware timer that generates a timer interrupt at a predetermined cycle (in this embodiment, once every 2 ms). Execute in the cycle.

  In step S501 of the first sub control unit timer interrupt process, 1 is added to the value of the timer variable storage area of the RAM 408 described in step S303 in the first sub control unit main process shown in FIG. Is stored in the timer variable storage area. Therefore, in step S303, the value of the timer variable is determined to be 10 or more every 20 ms (2 ms × 10).

  In subsequent step S503, transmission of a control command to second sub-control unit 500 set in step S319, update processing of a random number value for production, and the like are performed.

<First sub control unit image control processing>
Next, the image control process in step S313 in the main process of the first sub control unit 400 will be described with reference to FIG. FIG. 5 is a flowchart showing the flow of image control processing.

  In step S601, an instruction to transfer image data is issued. Here, the CPU 404 first swaps the designation of the display areas A and B in the VRAM 436. As a result, an image of one frame stored in the display area not designated as the drawing area is displayed on the decorative design display device 208. Next, the CPU 404 sets ROM coordinates (transfer source address of the ROM 406), VRAM coordinates (transfer destination address of the VRAM 436) and the like in the attribute register of the VDP 434 based on the position information table and the like, and then the image from the ROM 406 to the VRAM 436. Set an instruction to start data transfer. The VDP 434 transfers the image data from the ROM 406 to the VRAM 436 based on the command set in the attribute register. Thereafter, the VDP 436 outputs a transfer end interrupt signal to the CPU 404.

  In step S603, it is determined whether or not a transfer end interrupt signal from the VDP 434 is input. If a transfer end interrupt signal is input, the process proceeds to step S605. If not, a transfer end interrupt signal is input. Wait for it.

  In step S605, parameters are set based on the production scenario configuration table and attribute data. Here, the CPU 404 forms the display image in the display area A or B of the VRAM 436 based on the image data transferred to the VRAM 436 in step S601. , VRAM coordinates (arrangement coordinates, etc.) are instructed to the VDP 434. The VDP 434 sets parameters according to attributes based on instructions stored in the attribute register.

  In step S607, a drawing instruction is performed. In this drawing instruction, the CPU 404 instructs the VDP 434 to start drawing an image. The VDP 434 starts drawing an image in the frame buffer in accordance with an instruction from the CPU 404.

  In step S609, it is determined whether or not a generation end interrupt signal from the VDP 434 based on the end of image drawing is input. If a generation end interrupt signal is input, the process proceeds to step S611. If not, the generation end interrupt signal is determined. Wait for input.

  In step S611, a scene display counter that is set in a predetermined area of the RAM 408 and counts how many scene images have been generated is incremented (+1), and the process ends.

  <Processing of second sub-control unit 500>

  The process of the second sub control unit 500 will be described with reference to FIG. FIG. 6A is a flowchart of main processing executed by the CPU 504 of the second sub-control unit 500. FIG. 7B is a flowchart of command reception interrupt processing of the second sub control unit 500. FIG. 8C is a flowchart of the timer interrupt process of the second sub control unit 500.

<Second sub-control unit main process>
First, in step S701 of the main process of the second sub control unit 500, various initial settings are performed. When the power is turned on, an initialization process is first executed in step S701. In this initialization processing, initial setting of input / output ports, initialization processing of a storage area in the RAM 508, and the like are performed.

  In step S703, it is determined whether or not the timer variable is 10 or more, and this process is repeated until the timer variable becomes 10. When the timer variable becomes 10 or more, the process proceeds to step S705.

  In step S705, 0 is assigned to the timer variable.

  In step S707, command processing is performed. The CPU 504 of the second sub control unit 500 determines whether a command has been received from the CPU 404 of the first sub control unit 400.

  In step S709, an effect control process is performed. For example, if there is a new command in step S707, the effect data corresponding to this command is read from the ROM 506, and if the effect data needs to be updated, the effect data is updated.

  In step S <b> 711, if there is a command from the first sub-control unit 400 to the game board lamp 532 or the game table frame lamp 542, this command is output to the serial communication control circuit 520.

  In step S713, if there is a command from the first sub-control unit 400 to the effect movable body 224, this command is output to the drive circuit 516, and the process returns to step S703.

<Second sub-control unit command reception interrupt processing>
Next, the command reception interrupt process of the second sub control unit 500 will be described with reference to FIG. This command reception interrupt process is a process executed when the second sub control unit 500 detects the strobe signal output from the first sub control unit 400. In step S801 of the command reception interrupt process, the command output from the first sub control unit 400 is stored as an unprocessed command in a command storage area provided in the RAM 508.

<Second sub-control unit timer interrupt processing>
Next, the second sub control unit timer interrupt process executed by the CPU 504 of the second sub control unit 500 will be described with reference to FIG. The second sub-control unit 500 includes a hardware timer that generates a timer interrupt at a predetermined cycle (in this embodiment, once every 2 ms), and a timer interrupt process is performed in response to this timer interrupt. Execute in the cycle.

  In step S901 of the second sub control unit timer interrupt process, 1 is added to the value of the timer variable storage area of the RAM 508 described in step S703 in the second sub control unit main process shown in FIG. Is stored in the timer variable storage area. Therefore, in step S703, the value of the timer variable is determined to be 10 or more every 20 ms (2 ms × 10).

  In step S903 of the second sub-control unit timer interrupt process, an effect random number update process is performed.

<Data table of main control unit 300>
Next, a data table stored in advance in the ROM 306 of the main control unit 300 and a special drawing related lottery process will be described.

  FIG. 10 is a diagram showing an example of the special figure 1 fluctuation time determination table for determining the fluctuation time of the special figure 1 and the special figure 2 fluctuation time determination table for determining the fluctuation time of the special figure 2. . These special figure 1 variation time determination table and special figure 2 variation time determination table include a special symbol stop symbol, a special symbol variation time, a random number selection range, an effect mode on the decorative symbol display device 208, and a table. It is the data table which linked | related and memorize | stored the number.

  The main control unit 300 refers to the special figure 1 variation time determination table in the special figure 1 related lottery process described above, and selects a table number based on the determination result of the special figure 1 variable game. For example, if the result of determining whether or not the special figure 1 variable game is successful is a big hit and the special figure A or the special figure B is selected as the stop symbol of the special figure 1, the table 1 is selected as the table number. Subsequently, the main control unit 300 selects a specific variation time by lottery using a random value from one or a plurality of variation times corresponding to the selected table. For example, when the table number is Table 1 and the acquired random number value is 500, the variation time 15000 ms (per normal reach) corresponding to the random number selection range 0 to 1000 is selected.

  Further, the main control unit 300 refers to the special figure 2 variation time determination table in the special figure 2 related lottery process described above, and selects a table number based on the determination result of the special figure 2 variable game. For example, when the result of determining whether or not the special figure 2 variable game is successful and the special figure I or special figure J is selected as the stop symbol of the special figure 2, for example, the table 9 is selected as the table number. Subsequently, the main control unit 300 selects a specific variation time by lottery using a random value from one or a plurality of variation times corresponding to the selected table. For example, when the table number is Table 9 and the acquired random number value is 55000, a fluctuation time of 10,000 ms (normal reach deviation) corresponding to the random number selection range 50001 to 60000 is selected.

<Notice production>
Next, details of the effect (a series of notice effects related to the notice) displayed by the decorative symbol display device 208 in accordance with the determination result of the special figure related lottery process (steps S229 and S231) will be described. This effect includes a predetermined effect (hereinafter also referred to as “notice”) that suggests to the player the result of the determination of success / failure during the display of the decorative symbols. Further, this effect includes a predetermined effect (hereinafter also referred to as “notification”) that prompts the player to operate the chance button 136 in order to make the above notice. That is, in the series of notice effects displayed by the decorative symbol display device 208, an effect (notification) that prompts the player to operate the chance button 136 is first performed, and when the chance button 136 is operated by the player, the decorative symbol is displayed. During the fluctuation display, the result is changed to an effect (notice) that suggests the result of the success / failure determination to the player. At this time, an effect (notification) that prompts the user to operate the chance button 136 may be set according to the result of the success / failure determination, thereby fulfilling a function (notice function) that suggests the result of the success / failure determination to the player. The chance button 136 is set so that the operation becomes effective when operated within a predetermined reception period. The button reception period is notified to the player in various notification modes.

  Specifically, the main control unit 300 first determines whether or not the big hit flag is on in the special drawing related lottery processing (steps S229 and S231). When the big hit flag is ON, one symbol is determined from a plurality of big hit symbols (in the present embodiment, special drawings A to F). If the big hit flag is not on, it is determined whether or not the small hit flag is on. When the small hit flag is ON, one symbol is determined from a plurality of small hit symbols (in the present embodiment, special drawings G to F). When neither the big hit flag nor the small hit flag is on, one symbol is determined from a plurality of missed symbols (in this embodiment, special diagrams I to J). When the stop symbol of the special figure is determined, the change time is determined by the above-described special figure change time determination table (see FIG. 10) according to the stop symbol. Further, in the above-described command setting transmission process (step S233), a symbol change start command including at least information on the determination result (stop symbol of the special symbol) and the variation time is transmitted to the first sub-control unit 400.

  The CPU 404 of the first sub-control unit 400, in the above-described effect control process (step S309), the determination result (the special symbol stop symbol) included in the symbol variation start command received from the main control unit 300 and the variation time, The notice lottery processing is executed based on the notification mode determination table stored in advance in the ROM 406 for each stop symbol and variation time of the special figure and the random number value obtained from a predetermined random number counter.

  For example, when the 15R big hit symbol (special figure B) and the fluctuation time for super reach A (45000 ms) are received from the main control unit 300, the table number 2 is selected from the plurality of notification mode determination tables shown in FIG. The notification form determination table for Super Reach A is selected, and the notice lottery process is executed. Next, using the selected notification mode determination table, it is determined which effect is to be performed by random number lottery. For example, if the random number value is 29 in the super reach A per notification mode determination table, a notification mode whose mode changes from notification B to D is selected. Further, for example, when the first deviation symbol (special symbol I) and the super reach A variation time (40000 ms) are received from the main control unit 300, a table is selected from the plurality of notification mode determination tables shown in FIG. The super reach A of No. 12 selects the notification mode determination table for deviation, and executes the notice lottery process. Next, using the selected notification mode determination table, it is determined which effect is to be performed by random number lottery. For example, if the random number is 29 in the notification mode determination table for super reach A deviation, the notification mode in which the mode of notification F continues and the mode does not change in the middle is selected.

  Specifically, the first sub-control unit 400 executes a notice lottery process as shown in FIG.

  First, in step S1001, it is determined whether or not the determination result obtained from the main control unit 300 is a big hit (whether the stop symbol is a special symbol A to F). If it is a big hit, the process proceeds to step S1003, and if not, the process proceeds to step S1005.

In step S1003, the lottery of the notification mode is performed based on the jackpot table in the notification mode determination table. The notification mode determination table is determined based on the jackpot symbol received from the main control unit 300 and the variation time. For example, the jackpot table with table number 2 in the notification mode determination table shown in FIG. 12 is a notification mode determination table for Super Reach A selected in the special figure 1 variation time determination table in FIG. In the case of reach, details are omitted, but a notification mode determination table is prepared in the same manner. Further, in step S1003, a lottery of notification modes for the remaining time of the button reception period for notice is performed based on the notification mode determination table for super reach A in FIG. That is, in the case of a big hit through Super Reach A, when the random number value is 0 to 4, the “mode of continuing the notification F (mode in which the notification does not change)” is selected as the notification mode, and the random value is 5 to 19 Select “mode switching from notification A to notification E”, select “mode switching from notification B to notification D” when the random number is 20 to 49, and select “notification” when the random number is 50 to 99 A mode of switching from C 1 to notification C 2 is selected. In this embodiment, since the numerical value range of the random number value is set to 0 to 99, for example, the probability of selecting “mode of continuing notification F” as the notification mode is 1/20 (= 5/100). Yes, when the determination result of the special figure is a big hit, the probability that “the mode in which the notification F is continued” is most selected among all the notification modes is low.

  In step S1005, it is determined whether it is a predetermined fluctuation time. If so, the process proceeds to step S1007, and if not, the process proceeds to step S1009. Here, the predetermined variation time is a lottery using a special figure determination result (stop symbol) and a random value in a numerical range of 0 to 65535 based on the table shown in FIG. 10 in the special figure related lottery process. It means the variation time of the special figure determined by. In the present embodiment, in the next step S1007, a lottery of the notification mode is limited to a case where an effect relating to a loss, a normal reach failure, a super reach A departure or a super reach B departure is performed. It has come to be. In the present embodiment, when the stop symbol of the special figure is a small hit, the notification mode is determined from the loss table.

In step S1007, the lottery of the notification mode is performed based on the deviation table in the notification mode determination table. For example, the outlier table of the table number 12 in the notification mode determination table shown in FIG. 12 is a super reach A selection mode for shift detection selected in the special figure 1 variation time determination table in FIG. Similarly to the case of, a notice mode determination table for notice is also prepared in the case of other reach or loss. Furthermore, in step S1007, the lottery of the notification mode of the remaining time of the button reception period for notice is performed based on the notification mode determination table for super reach A in FIG. That is, in the case of deviation from Super Reach A, when the random number value is 0 to 49, “notification F is continued” is selected as the notification mode, and when the random number value is 50 to 79, “notification from notification A” is selected. "Mode switching to E" is selected. When the random number value is 80 to 94, "Mode switching from notification B to notification D" is selected. When the random number value is 95 to 99, "Notification C 1 to Notification C 2 " is selected. “Mode to be switched” is selected. Note that the probability of selecting “mode switching from notification C 1 to notification C 2 ” as the notification mode is 1/20 (= 5/100), and if the determination result of the special figure is not a big hit, “notification C 1 probability aspect switched to notification C 2 "is the most selective of all the notification manner from is low.

  In step S1009, a command is transmitted to various devices that execute a notice (for example, VDP 434 that controls the display image of the decorative symbol display device 208), and this control flow ends.

Of the notification modes described above, in the notification mode that switches from notification X to notification Y, the first notification mode is referred to as the first notification mode, and the notification mode that switches thereafter is referred to as the second notification mode. Moreover, at least the notification period is set in each aspect of the above-described notifications A to F. For example, the broadcast A is one second broadcasting period, informing B is broadcast period 2 seconds, the notification C 1 and C 2 are broadcasting period is 3 seconds, the notification D is broadcasting period is 4 seconds, the notification E is broadcasting period is 5 seconds The notification F is set such that the notification period is 6 seconds. And when winning the mode switched from the first notification mode to the second notification mode, a notification period according to the first notification mode (hereinafter also referred to as a first notification period) and a notification period according to the second notification mode (hereinafter referred to as the first notification mode). , Which is also referred to as a second notification period) is set to coincide with the button reception period.

  Further, although not shown in particular, in the advance notice lottery process, the details of the advance notice are determined based on the determination result received from the main control unit 300, the predetermined advance notice lottery table stored in the ROM 406 in advance, and the random number described above. (For example, if the button is pressed, the character display of “It ’s hot!” Or “...” is displayed).

<Example 1>
Example 1 of the notification mode of the remaining time of the reception period of the chance button 136 notified by the decorative symbol display device 208 as a result of the notice lottery process will be described with reference to FIGS. 13 and 14. Here, in a case where the determination result is 15R big hit (special figure B) and the fluctuation time is 45000 ms (per super reach A), in the notification form determination table for super reach A shown in Table No. 2 shown in FIG. An example will be described in which a notification mode that switches from “B” (first notification mode) to “B” (second notification mode) is won.

  As described above, the chance button 136 is enabled to accept operations only during a preset period (button reception period). The button reception period is displayed on the screen of the decorative symbol display device 208 in a format that shows the remaining time (here, a rectangular meter), and the length of the remaining time of the button reception period is notified by the remaining amount of the meter. The The notification mode can be set in various modes using parameters such as a notification period, a color of the meter, an initial amount of the meter at the start of notification, a decrease amount (decrease rate) per unit time of the meter, and the like.

In the notification B mode in the first embodiment, the meter is displayed in the reference color (for example, blue) during the notification period of T 2 seconds (for example, 2 seconds). For example, as shown in FIGS. 14B to 14D, the meter is displayed in a state where it partially overlaps the front surface of the decorative symbol that is changing. For example, as shown in FIG. 14B, the meter is displayed as full when the notification starts in the notification B mode, and gradually decreases as time elapses. The decreasing speed of the meter is set to coincide with the actual decreasing speed during the button reception period (actual decreasing speed of the remaining time).

In the notification D mode, the meter is displayed in a special color (for example, red) during the notification period of T 4 seconds (for example, 4 seconds). The meter is displayed partially overlapping the front of the changing decorative symbol. At the notification start time point according to the notification D mode, the remaining amount of the meter immediately before (the notification end time point according to the notification B mode) is maintained, and gradually decreases as time passes. The decrease rate of the meter is set to coincide with the actual decrease rate during the button reception period.

  In FIGS. 13 and 14, (a) is the time when the special figure and decorative symbol change start, (b) is the time when the button reception period starts, and (c) is the remaining time during the button reception period. This is the time when the notification mode changes, and (d) is the time when the reception of the button reception period ends.

In this example, as a first notification mode, the meter is displayed in a reference color during a notification period of T 2 seconds (for example, 2 seconds). The meter is displayed partially overlapping the front of the changing decorative symbol. At the start of reception, the meter is full and gradually decreases with time. The rate of decrease of the meter matches the actual rate of decrease during the button acceptance period. That is, for example, when the button reception period is 6 seconds, the meter decreases to 2/3 when 2 seconds have elapsed since the start of reception.

When the notification period according to the first notification mode ends, the mode is switched to the second notification mode, and the meter is displayed in a special color during the subsequent notification period of T 4 seconds (for example, 4 seconds). The rate of decrease of the meter is the same as in the first notification mode. Therefore, the decrease rate is constant over the entire button reception period. However, in the notification D mode, the remaining amount of the meter at the time immediately before the switching is continued, so that the remaining time notification starts from a state where the remaining amount of the meter is 2/3.

  When the button reception period ends, the meter display disappears, and the display returns to the state in which the changing decorative symbol is displayed on the entire screen of the decorative symbol display device 208.

  If the player operates the chance button 136 while notifying the button reception period by the meter, the meter disappears and a notice as shown on the right side of FIG. 14 is displayed. In this case, the letters “It ’s super hot!” Suggesting that the determination result is a big hit. By giving a notice that “It ’s super hot !!”, it is possible to increase the player's expectation for the big hit.

  In detail, in the first embodiment, when an operation of the chance button 136 by the player is accepted, any one of “...”, “Super hot?”, Or “Super hot !!” is displayed. Is set to be. For example, when the mode of notification B → D is selected, the case classification based on the random number value is further divided. For example, when the random number value is 20 to 24, “....” Is displayed, and the random value is 25 to 25. In the case of 34, “Gekiatsu ??” is displayed, and in the case where the random number value is 35 to 49, “Gekiatsu !!” is displayed. Note that the same setting is performed when a notification mode other than the notification B → D is selected.

  According to such a notification mode of the first embodiment, the player can grasp the remaining time of the button reception period, and may or may not press the chance button 136 at a desired timing. Is possible. In particular, when the notification mode is changed halfway with the passage of time (for example, in the case of the notification mode in which the random number is won at 5 to 99 for 15R big hit, the notification is won at the random number of 50 to 99 at the time of loss. As for the timing of pressing the chance button 136, “Press immediately after the reception becomes valid”, “Press when the notification mode changes”, “Press at any timing of the player”, “Press There is an advantage that the range of choices such as “No” is widened and the game becomes diverse. In other words, since the execution of the notice depends on the player's operation of the chance button 136, the range of the game is particularly widened in this respect, and the interest of the game may be further enhanced.

  In addition, it is possible to increase the interest of the game by amplifying the player's sense of expectation for the big hit by switching the notification mode. Further, there are cases where it is possible to reduce the operation of the useless chance button 136 by the player and increase the durability of the chance button 136. Further, if the meter color is changed before and after the notification mode is changed, the range of effects is widened, and an effect of prompting the player to operate the chance button 136 may be expected.

  Also, as shown in FIG. 12, since the probability of winning each notification mode is set differently in the case where the determination result of the success / failure is different from that in the case of the big hit, the expectation given to the player in the case of the big win On the other hand, the probability that the feeling is increased is increased, while the probability that the feeling of expectation given to the player is decreased in the case of a loss is increased, and a difference is produced between the two. In this respect, the interest of the game can be further enhanced.

<Example 2>
Next, Example 2 will be described with reference to FIGS. 15 and 16. Similarly to the first embodiment, in the second embodiment, in the notice table shown in FIG. 12, the determination result is 15R big hit (special figure B) and the fluctuation time is 45000 ms (per super reach A). The case where the notification mode that switches from “1 notification mode)” to “notification D (second notification mode)” is won will be described as an example. However, in the second embodiment, the notifications when the buttons are pressed are displayed separately in the notification period (first notification period) according to the first notification mode and the notification period (second notification period) according to the second notification mode. This is different from the first embodiment in that it is set to.

  In FIGS. 15 and 16, (a) is the decorative symbol variation start time, (b) is the reception start time of the button reception period, and (c) is a notification mode of the remaining time of the button reception period. (D) is the reception end point of the button reception period.

In this example, as a first notification mode, the meter is displayed in a reference color (for example, blue) during a notification period of T 2 seconds (for example, 2 seconds). The meter is displayed partially overlapping the front of the changing decorative symbol. At the start of reception, the meter is full and gradually decreases with time. The decrease rate of the meter is set to coincide with the actual decrease rate during the button reception period. That is, for example, when the button reception period is 6 seconds, the meter decreases to 2/3 when 2 seconds have elapsed since the start of reception. When the chance button 136 is operated during the first notification period, a notice (first notice) “...” is displayed. Thereafter, the notice continues until the end of the button acceptance period, and the notice disappears at the end of acceptance.

If the chance button 136 is not operated during the first notification period, the second notification mode is switched when the first notification period ends, and the meter is turned on during the subsequent notification period of T 4 seconds (for example, 4 seconds). Display in a special color (for example, red). The speed at which the meter decreases is the same as in the first notification mode. When the chance button 136 is operated during the second notification period, a notice “second notice” is displayed. Thereafter, the notice continues until the button reception period ends, and the notice display disappears at the end.

  If the chance button 136 is not operated even during the second notification period, the meter display continues until the button reception period ends, and the meter display disappears when the button reception period ends, and the screen of the decorative symbol display device 208 is displayed. The display returns to the state in which all the decorative symbols that are changing are displayed. That is, if the chance button 136 is not operated over the first and second notification periods, the advance notice is not performed.

  It should be noted that the first notice of “...” And the second notice of “Gekiatsu !!!!” are the aforementioned notice lottery based on the determination result and the variation time obtained from the main control unit 300. It is set by processing. The first notice gives the player low expectations, while the second notice gives the player high expectations.

  In detail, in the second embodiment, in the same manner as in the first embodiment, when an operation of the chance button 136 by the player is accepted, “...”, “Super hot?”, “Super hot!” "Is set to be displayed. For example, when the mode of notification B → D is selected, the case classification by the random number values 20 to 49 is further finely divided. For example, when the random number value is 20 to 24, “...” is displayed when an operation is received at the time of notification B, while “Super hot !!” is displayed when the operation is received at the time of notification D. Is set to When the random number is 25 to 34, “Gekiatsu ??” is displayed when an operation is accepted at the time of notification B, while “Gekiatsu!” Is displayed when the operation is accepted at the time of notification D. Has been. When the random number value is 35 to 49, it is set so that “super hot !!” is displayed when an operation is accepted for both the notification B and the notification D. Note that the same setting is made when another notification mode is selected.

  In the second embodiment, the meter is displayed in the reference color in the first notification period, and the set notification has a lower or equivalent expectation than the notification in the second notification period. On the other hand, in the second notification period, the meter is displayed in a special color, and the set notice has a higher or equivalent expectation than the notice in the first notice period. As the display color of the meter, the special color has a greater impact on the player than the reference color. That is, in each notification period, the expectation suggested by the notification mode of the remaining time of the button reception period is associated with the expectation suggested by the notice. Thereby, the expectation given to the player can be adjusted by a combination of the notification mode and the notice, and there is an advantage that the interest of the game can be further enhanced.

  Further, the player may be able to grasp the contents of the notice without operating the chance button 136 by understanding that the remaining time notification mode corresponds to the contents of the notice. That is, the player who is making a big hit may not be able to press the chance button 136 because he / she is conscious of paying out the game ball (moving the game ball to the box). Further, there may be a disadvantage such as spilling a ball paid out when the chance button 136 is operated. However, if the remaining time notification mode also functions as a notice that suggests the result of the success / failure determination, and the content of the notice can be inferred without pressing the chance button 136, the player can pay out the game ball. You may be able to concentrate and increase your expectations for the next game.

<Example 3>
Next, Example 3 will be described with reference to FIGS. 17 and 18. The third embodiment is an example of a notification mode in which the meter is temporarily stopped. In the table shown in FIG. 12, when the determination result is 15R big hit (special figure B) and the variation time is 45000 ms (per super reach A), An explanation will be given by taking as an example a case where the notification mode that switches from “notification A (first notification mode)” to “notification E (second notification mode)” is won. The button reception period is set to a predetermined number of seconds (here, 6 seconds). 17 and 18, (a) is the reception start time of the button reception period, (b) is the time when the notification mode of the remaining time of the button reception period is changed, and (g) is the button reception period. This is the end of acceptance.

  In the notification A mode, the notification period is 1 second, a full-fill meter is displayed in a reference color (for example, blue), and the button reception period (apparent reception period) for notifying the player is the actual button reception period. Half of this (here 3 seconds). Here, by making the rate of decrease of the meter twice the rate of decrease in the actual button reception period, it is possible to make the player have the illusion that it is shorter than the normal button reception period. As a premise of this, in normal times, the amount of decrease (decrease rate) per unit time of the meter that is initially filled up is set to match the decrease rate of the actual button reception period, and the game is repeated. It is preferable that the player can recognize that the button reception period is normally set to a fixed length (here, 6 seconds). According to BGM, the player may be able to recognize sensuously that the button reception period is normally about 6 seconds. If there is such a precondition, even if the actual button acceptance period is set to 6 seconds, it is normal to reduce the full meter by 1/6 per second, for example 1 second. If it is decreased by 1/3, the player can be given the illusion that the current button reception period is 3 seconds. Further, if the time is decreased by 1/5 per second, the player can be given an illusion that the current button reception period is 5 seconds.

  In the mode of the notification E, the notification period is 5 seconds, a meter with an arbitrary remaining amount is displayed in a reference color (for example, blue), and the meter is temporarily stopped for a predetermined time (here, 3 seconds) immediately after the notification is started. After that, in order to match the bottom of the book, the decrease speed of the meter is faster than the normal button reception period (speed that decreases by 1/6 per second) (here, speed that decreases by 1/3 per second) Decrease and report remaining time.

  That is, first, when the notification starts in the first notification mode, a full tank meter is displayed in the reference color. Next, during the first notification period, the meter is decreased by 1/3 in 1 second.

  When the first notification period ends, the second notification mode is switched. In the second notification mode, the reduction of the meter for the first 3 seconds is stopped. Therefore, the meter remains in the state of 2/3 remaining until 4 seconds elapse from the reception start time of the button reception period. Next, when 4 seconds elapse, the meter starts decreasing again, and decreases by 1/3 per second. Accordingly, the remaining amount of the meter is reduced to 1/3 when 5 seconds have elapsed, and the remaining amount of the meter becomes 0 when 6 seconds have elapsed, that is, at the end of the button reception period. In the third embodiment, in order to make up for the temporary stoppage of the meter, the decrease rate of the meter is made faster than the decrease rate of the normal button reception period, particularly in the second notification period.

  Thus, in the third embodiment, the actual remaining time length of the button reception period and the remaining time length suggested by the meter are set differently. Accordingly, by switching from the first notification mode to the second notification mode, the decrease in the meter is temporarily stopped, and the player can be illusioned that the remaining time has increased, thereby amplifying the expectation and being surprised. There are cases where there is an effect that the interest of the game can be enhanced by giving.

  In addition, even if the remaining time of the button reception period different from the actual one is notified in either one of the first and second notification modes, the book bottom can be adjusted in the other notification mode, so the effects related to various notices Can be done. In the third embodiment, when the chance button 136 is operated during the button reception period, for example, it is preferable that a notice similar to that in the first embodiment is given.

<Example 4>
Next, Example 4 will be described with reference to FIGS. 19 and 20. Similarly to the first and second embodiments, in the fourth embodiment, in the notification mode determination table for notice shown in FIG. 12, the determination result is 15R big hit (special figure B) and the fluctuation time is 45000 ms (per super reach A). An explanation will be given by taking as an example a case where a notification mode switching from “notification B (first notification mode)” to “notification D (second notification mode)” is won. However, the contents of the notifications A to F are different from those of the first and second embodiments, and the fourth embodiment is an example in which the remaining amount of the meter increases when the notification mode is switched. The button reception period is set to a predetermined number of seconds (here, 6 seconds). 19 and 20, (a) is the reception start time of the button reception period, (c) is the time when the notification mode of the remaining time of the button reception period is changed, and (g) is the button reception period. This is the end of acceptance.

  In the notification B mode of the fourth embodiment, the notification period is 2 seconds, the full tank meter is displayed in a reference color (for example, blue) at the time of notification start, and the button reception period for notification to the player (apparent reception) Period) is half of the actual button reception period (here, 3 seconds). Here, as in the third embodiment, by making the rate of decrease of the meter double the rate of decrease of the actual button reception period, the player is given the illusion that the button reception period is shorter than the actual button reception period. It is like that.

  In the notification D mode, the notification period is 4 seconds, and when the notification starts, a full tank meter is displayed in a reference color (for example, blue), and the player receives the illusion that the meter has recovered after returning to the original button reception period. Let Thereafter, the rate of decrease of the meter is set slower than the rate of decrease in the mode of notification B, and the remaining time is notified.

  That is, first, when the notification starts in the first notification mode, a full tank meter is displayed in the reference color. Next, during the notification period of the first notification mode, the meter is decreased by 1/3 per second. This allows the player to recognize that the current button reception period is 3 seconds. When the first notification period ends, the mode is switched to the second notification mode. At this time, return the meter to full. Then, the full meter is decreased by 1/4 per second. This allows the player to recognize that the remaining time of the button reception period after switching to the second notification mode has increased to 4 seconds. The remaining amount of the meter becomes 0 at the end of the reception of the button reception period.

  According to the notification in the notification mode of the fourth embodiment, the remaining amount of the meter increases at the time of switching from the first notification mode to the second notification mode, and the decrease rate of the meter in the second notification mode is Since it is slower than the rate of decrease in the first notification mode, it is possible to make the player have the illusion that the remaining time of the button reception period has increased, to amplify the expectation, and to give a surprise and enhance the interest of the game There is an effect that can be.

  In addition, since the rate of decrease in the button reception period is different between the first notification mode and the second notification mode, even if the notification of the button reception period different from the actual is performed in either one of the first and second notification modes. In the other notification mode, the bottom of the book can be adjusted and various notices can be made.

  In the above example, the meter display is returned to full when the notification mode is switched. However, if the remaining amount of the meter immediately after switching is greater than the remaining amount of the meter immediately before switching, The remaining amount of the meter (in other words, the initial amount of the meter in the second notification mode) is not limited to a full tank. Further, in the fourth embodiment, when the chance button 136 is operated during the button reception period, for example, it is preferable that a notice similar to that in the first embodiment is given.

<Example 5>
Next, Example 5 will be described with reference to FIGS. 21 and 22. Similarly to the first, second, and fourth embodiments, in the notification mode determination table shown in FIG. 12, the determination result is 15R big hit (special figure B) and the fluctuation time is 45000 ms (per super reach A). An explanation will be given by taking as an example a case where a notification mode switching from “notification B (first notification mode)” to “notification D (second notification mode)” is won. However, the contents of the notifications A to F are different from those of the above-described embodiment, and the fifth embodiment is an example in which the remaining amount of the meter is increased when the notification mode is switched and the color is changed and displayed. is there. The button reception period is set to a predetermined number of seconds (here, 6 seconds).

  21 and 22, (a) is the reception start time of the button reception period, (c) is the time when the notification mode of the remaining time of the button reception period is changed, and (g) is the button reception period. This is the end of acceptance.

  The color of the meter is associated with the sense of expectation for the big hit, and the expectation is low for the reference color (for example, blue), and the expectation is high for the special color (for example, red). This is the same as in the second embodiment.

  In the notification B mode of the fifth embodiment, while the notification period is set to 2 seconds, a fully-filled meter is displayed in the reference color at the start of notification, and then the game is performed while gradually reducing the remaining amount of the meter. It is set so as to correctly notify the remaining time of the actual button reception period to the user. Here, by making the rate of decrease of the meter equal to the rate of decrease in the actual button reception period (that is, the rate at which the meter decreases by 1/6 per second), the player can correctly set the actual button reception period. It is supposed to be recognized.

  In the notification D mode, the notification period is set to 4 seconds, the full meter is displayed in a special color at the start of the notification, and then the actual button is displayed to the player while gradually reducing the remaining amount of the meter. It is set so that the remaining time of the reception period is notified correctly. In this case, the remaining time is reported at the same rate as the actual button reception period (that is, the rate at which the meter decreases by 1/4 per second).

  That is, first, when the notification starts in the first notification mode, a full meter is displayed in the reference color. Next, during the notification period of the first notification mode, the meter is reduced by 1/6 per second. When the notification period of the first notification mode ends, the mode is switched to the second notification mode. At this time, the meter is returned to the full state and the color of the meter is changed from the reference color to the special color. Then, the full meter is decreased by 1/4 per second. Accordingly, the remaining amount of the meter becomes 0 at the end of the reception of the button reception period.

  Even with the notification as in the fifth embodiment, the remaining amount of the meter increases when switching from the first notification mode to the second notification mode, so that the player has an illusion that the remaining time of the button reception period has increased. It is possible to amplify a sense of expectation and to give a surprise and enhance the interest of the game.

  In addition, since the rate of decrease in the button reception period is different between the first notification mode and the second notification mode, even if the notification of the button reception period different from the actual is performed in either one of the first and second notification modes. Since the other information mode can be adjusted to the bottom of the book, it is possible to make various notices.

  Further, the meter color is changed from the reference color to the special color, so that the expectation for the big hit is increased.

  In the above-described example, the meter display is returned to full when the notification mode is switched. However, as in the fourth embodiment, the remaining amount of the meter immediately after the switching is greater than the remaining amount of the meter immediately before the switching. If so, the remaining amount of the meter immediately after switching (in other words, the initial amount of the meter in the second notification mode) is not limited to full. In the fifth embodiment, when the chance button 136 is operated during the button reception period, for example, it is preferable that the same notice as in the second embodiment is given.

<Example 6>
Next, Example 6 will be described with reference to FIGS. In the notification mode determination table shown in FIG. 12 as well, the result of the determination is that the determination result is 15R big hit (special figure B) and the fluctuation time is 45000 ms (per super reach A). An example in which a notification mode that switches to “notification D (second notification mode)” is won will be described as an example. The sixth embodiment is an example in which the remaining amount of the meter increases when the notification mode is switched, and the operation condition of the chance button 136 for displaying the notice is displayed in the first notification period and the second notification period. Are set differently. In addition, although the content of each alerting | reporting AF is preferable if it is set similarly to the thing of Example 4, it does not restrict to this in particular.

  In FIGS. 23 and 24, (a) is the time when the special figure and decorative symbol change start, (b) is the time when the button reception period starts, and (c) is the remaining time during the button reception period. This is the time when the notification mode changes, and (d) is the time when the reception of the button reception period ends.

Aspects of the notification B of Example 6, with the notification period is set to T B seconds (e.g. 2 seconds), the full meter by the broadcast start time is displayed in the reference color (e.g. blue), then meter It is set so that the remaining amount of the actual button reception period is properly notified to the player while gradually decreasing the remaining amount. Here, by making the decrease rate of the meter equal to the decrease rate of the actual button reception period, the player can correctly recognize the actual button reception period.

Aspects of the notification D, together with the notification period is set to T D s (e.g. 4 seconds), the full meter by the broadcast start time is displayed in the reference color, then, while gradually decreasing the remaining amount of the meter The player is set to correctly notify the remaining time of the actual button reception period. Here, the remaining time is reported at the same speed as the actual remaining time.

First, a full meter is displayed in a reference color at the start of notification in the first notification mode. Next, during the notification period of the first notification mode, the meter is decreased by [1 / (T B + T D )] by a predetermined amount per second. When the notification period of the first notification mode ends, the mode is switched to the second notification mode. At this time, return the meter to full. Thereafter, the full meter is decreased by a predetermined amount (by 1 / T D ) per second, and the remaining amount of the meter is set to 0 at the end of the reception of the button reception period.

  In the first notification period, the operation condition of the chance button 136 is a single operation. If the chance button 136 is not operated once during the first notification period, the second notification mode is switched when the first notification period ends, and the meter is displayed in the reference color during the second notification period. At the same time, the operation condition of the chance button 136 is switched to continuous hitting (a plurality of continuous operations). The decreasing rate of the meter is faster than that in the first notification mode. During the second notification mode, the contents of the effect screen are selected according to the number of operations of the chance button 136 and the random value. When the operation screen of the chance button 136 is received and the effect screen is displayed, the effect screen is continuously displayed until the button reception period ends. Then, at the end of the button reception period, the screen returns to the state in which the changing decorative symbol is displayed on all the screens of the decorative symbol display device 208.

  The selection of the effect screen during the second notification period will be described in detail. For example, if the random number value is 20 to 49 in the notification mode determination table shown in FIG. When the numerical value is 20 to 39, when the chance button 136 is operated a predetermined number of times or more (for example, 10 times or more), an effect screen “success!” Is displayed, while the chance button 136 is displayed once or more. If the operation is performed less than a predetermined number of times, an effect screen “Sorry ...” is displayed. When the random number is 40 to 49, if the chance button 136 is operated one or more times, an effect screen “Sorry ...” is displayed.

  If the chance button 136 is not operated even during the second notification period, the meter display continues until the button reception period ends, and the meter display disappears when the button reception period ends, and the decorative symbol display device The screen returns to the state in which the decorative pattern being changed is displayed on all the screens 208.

  The notification as in the sixth embodiment also has the effect of giving the player the illusion that the button reception period has increased for a moment. In addition, since the operation condition of the chance button 136 changes with time, there is an advantage that the range of games is widened.

  In addition, since the operation conditions of the chance button 136 differ with the passage of time, the range of games can be expanded and the interest of the game can be enhanced.

<Example 7>
Next, Example 7 will be described with reference to FIGS. The seventh embodiment is an example in which the notification mode of the remaining time of the button reception period is determined in combination with other notices executed before and after the button reception period.

  In the seventh embodiment, the notification mode of the remaining time of the button reception period and the content of the notice executed before and after the button reception period are a table stored in advance in the ROM 406 and a random number value obtained by a predetermined random number lottery. To be determined.

  For example, when the determination result is a big hit and the fluctuation time of FIG. 1 is the fluctuation time for Super Reach A, a decorative pattern is stored using a table stored in the ROM 406 in advance as shown in FIG. The outline (basic matter) of the contents of the effect relating to the notification mode of the remaining time of the button reception period displayed on the display device 208 and the advance notice before and after the button reception period is determined. For example, when the random number value 27 is acquired by a predetermined random number lottery in the table, the notice C corresponding to the random number selection range “20 to 49” is selected. The notice C includes information for changing the notification mode of the button reception period from the notification B mode as the first notification mode to the notification D mode as the second notification mode. In the table, different information is set for each random number selection range. The same applies to other tables.

  Next, a lottery is performed in more detail for each random number selection range of the above table. For example, based on a table stored in advance in the ROM 406 as shown in FIG. 27B and a random number value obtained by a predetermined random number lottery. Thus, the detailed contents of the notice (hereinafter also referred to as “preceding notice”) to be performed before the button reception period are determined. For example, when the random number 22 included in the random number selection range “10 to 54” in the table is acquired, an effect screen with a balloon “?” On the character image of the princess is selected. In the table, different information is set for each random number selection range.

  Next, a lottery is performed in more detail for each random number selection range in the above table. For example, based on a table stored in the ROM 406 in advance as shown in FIG. 27C and a random value obtained by a predetermined random number lottery. Then, the detailed contents of the first notification mode are determined. For example, when the random number value 73 included in the random number selection range “0 to 89” in the table is acquired, a mode in which the meter is displayed in blue (reference color) is selected as the mode of the notification B. In the table, different information is set for each random number selection range. Further, the table is set so that the mode in which the meter is displayed in blue (reference color) is more easily selected than the mode in which the meter is displayed in red (special color).

  Next, a lottery is performed in more detail for each random number selection range in the above table. For example, based on a table stored in advance in the ROM 406 as shown in FIG. 27D and a random number value obtained by a predetermined random number lottery. Thus, the detailed content of the second notification mode is determined. For example, when the random number value 61 included in the random number selection range “20 to 99” in the table is acquired, a mode in which the meter is displayed in red (special color) is selected as the mode of the notification D. In the table, different information is set for each random number selection range. Further, the table is set so that the mode in which the meter is displayed in red (special color) is more easily selected than the mode in which the meter is displayed in blue (reference color).

  Next, a lottery is performed in more detail for each random number selection range in the above table. For example, based on a table stored in advance in the ROM 406 as shown in FIG. 27E and a random number value obtained by a predetermined random number lottery. Thus, the detailed contents of the notice (hereinafter also referred to as “follow-up notice”) to be performed after the button reception period are determined. For example, when a random number value 35 included in the random number selection range “10 to 99” in the table is acquired, an effect screen that displays “Gekiatsu !!” as the reach character display notice after the button reception period is selected. Is done. In the table, different information is set for each random number selection range. In addition, the table is set so that the effect screen displayed as “Gekiatsu !!” is more easily selected than the effect screen displayed as “reach”.

  More specifically, for example, if the determination result is a big hit, the fluctuation time of FIG. 1 is the fluctuation time for Super Reach A, and the notice C is won in the table shown in FIG. 25 and a series of effects as shown in FIG. 26 are performed.

In the example shown in FIGS. 25 and 26, the period of t 2 ~t 4 is configured as a button acceptance period. In the button reception period, the remaining time of the button reception period is notified in the same manner as in the first embodiment.

First, the advance notice is displayed on the decorative symbol display device 208 during the period from t 1 to t 2 before the button reception period. The content of the advance notice is such that an effect screen with a balloon “?” On the character image of the princess is displayed as a notice that the expectation to the big hit is low. Next, the button acceptance period begins. Here, as notification manner of the remaining time of the button acceptance period it has won notification manner of switching from the first notification manner at the time of t 3 to the second notification manner. And in a 1st alerting | reporting aspect, the meter of a full tank is displayed in blue (reference | standard color) with a low expectation to jackpot at the time of alerting | reporting, and a meter is gradually reduced as time passes. In the second notification mode that follows, the meter is displayed in red (special color) with a high expectation for a big hit, and the meter is gradually reduced as time passes.

  When the button acceptance period ends, the meter display disappears and the decorative symbol is in a reach state, and at this time, a subsequent notice is displayed. Here, the content of the subsequent notice is displayed as “Gekiatsu !!” as a notice with high expectation for the big hit.

  In the first notification mode, since the meter is displayed in a reference color of blue, the expectation of jackpot is low. On the other hand, in the second notification mode, since the meter is displayed in a special color of red, the expectation of big hit is high. That is, in this example, the first notification mode is easily set to a low-expectation notification mode and the second notification mode is a sense of expectation in association with the jackpot expectation feeling before and after the button reception period. It is easy to set to a high notification mode.

  Note that at least the following five patterns are conceivable when the notification mode during the button reception period is associated with the notice before and after the button reception period.

  In the first pattern, setting is made so that the notice before the button reception period (expectation; low) → during the button reception period (expectation; low → low) → the notice after the button reception period (expectation; low) .

  In the second pattern, it is set so that the notice before the button reception period (expectation; low) → during the button reception period (expectation; low → low) → the notification after the button reception period (expectation; high) .

  In the third pattern, setting is made so that the notice before the button reception period (expectation; low) → during the button reception period (expectation; low → high) → the notice after the button reception period (expectation; high) .

  In the fourth pattern, it is set so that the notice before button reception period (expectation; high) → during button reception period (expectation; high → high) → notice after button reception period (expectation; low) .

  In the fifth pattern, it is set so that the notice before the button reception period (expectation; high) → during the button reception period (expectation; low → low) → the notice after the button reception period (expectation; high) .

  According to the first pattern, the player's expectation for jackpot may be lowered, and the difference from when the expectation for jackpot is high may be made clearer. In addition, when a big hit occurs when the expectation is low, the player may be able to amplify the joy of the player.

  According to the second and third patterns, the player's sense of expectation for jackpot may be gradually increased.

  According to the fourth pattern, there is a case where the player's feeling of expectation for the big hit is not raised too much, and the disappointment when the big hit is not made can be reduced.

  According to the fifth pattern, since the player's expectation for jackpot is lowered and then increased, the player's expectation for jackpot may be raised and lowered, and eventually the expectation can be further increased. is there.

  In the example shown in FIGS. 25 and 26 of the seventh embodiment, the notice before and after the button reception period is performed using the decorative symbol display device 208. For example, the effect movable body 224 or an arbitrary lamp is used. It is good also as what is performed by other production | presentation apparatuses. In this case, however, the expectation suggested by the notification mode of the remaining time of the button reception period and the expectation suggested by the notice are set in association with each other.

<Example 8>
Next, Example 8 will be described with reference to FIGS.

  First, the preconditions of Example 8 will be described. When the determination result is a 15R special big hit (probability big hit), the decorative symbols are stopped and displayed by the decorative symbol display device 208 with a symbol combination indicating 15R big hit (normal big hit). After that, there is a case where a re-lottery effect is made to change to a combination of decorative symbols indicating a 15R special jackpot (however, since it is determined internally whether it is probabilistic or non-probable, actually re-drawing Not.) At this time, the period from when the decorative design starts to change until it stops is divided into, for example, three periods: (1) before the change starts to reach, (2) during reach, and (3) during redraw. It is possible to make a separate notice for each of these three periods. In the re-lottery, as shown in FIG. 10, the fluctuation time is set to be longer for 5000 ms than the reach of each reach. This is because the winning variation time includes the time for performing the re-lottery regardless of the probability change or non-change probability.

  In Example 8, when notifying the remaining time of a button reception period in any two or more of each said period (1)-(3), the alerting | reporting aspect in each period (1)-(3) or At least two or more expectations given to the player by the notice are related.

  Further, in the eighth embodiment, the notification mode of the remaining time of the button reception period and the content of the notice executed before and after the button reception period are a random number value obtained by a table stored in advance in the ROM 406 and a predetermined random number lottery. It is determined based on.

  For example, if the determination result is a big hit and the fluctuation time of FIG. 1 is a fluctuation time for Super Reach A (for example, 45000 ms), a table stored in the ROM 406 in advance as shown in FIG. Thus, the outline (basic matters) of the contents of the effects relating to the notification mode of the remaining time of the button reception period displayed on the decorative symbol display device 208 and the notices performed before and after the button reception period are determined. For example, when the random number value 27 is acquired by a predetermined random number lottery in the table, the notice C corresponding to the random number selection range “20 to 49” is selected. The notice C includes information for changing the notification mode of the button reception period from the notification a mode as the first notification mode to the notification b mode as the second notification mode before reaching the period (1). Information to change from the notification c mode as the first notification mode to the notification d mode as the second notification mode during the reach of (2), as the first notification mode during the re-lottery of the period (3) The information to be changed from the notification e mode to the notification f mode as the second notification mode is included. In the table, different information is set for each random number selection range. Although not shown in particular, a table corresponding to each case such as a table in the case where the result of the determination is a big hit and the fluctuation time in FIG. Is remembered.

  Next, lottery is performed in more detail for each random number selection range in the above table. For example, based on a table stored in advance in the ROM 406 as shown in FIG. 31B and a random number value acquired by a predetermined random number lottery. Thus, the detailed contents of the first notification mode before reach in period (1) are determined. For example, when the random number value 22 included in the random number selection range “0 to 49” in the table is acquired, a mode in which the meter is displayed in blue (reference color) is selected as the mode of the notification a. In the table, different information is set for each random number selection range. In the table, the probability that the mode in which the meter is displayed in blue (reference color) is selected and the probability that the mode in which the meter is displayed in red (special color) are selected are set to be the same.

  Next, lottery is performed in detail for each random number selection range in the above table. For example, based on a table stored in the ROM 406 in advance as shown in FIG. 31C and a random number value obtained by a predetermined random lottery. Then, the detailed content of the 2nd alerting | reporting aspect before reach | attainment of a period (1) is determined. For example, when the random number value 13 included in the random number selection range “10 to 39” in the table is acquired, a mode in which the meter is displayed in blue (reference color) and the meter is increased by a predetermined amount as the mode of notification b. Selected. As an aspect of the notification b, the aspect that “the meter increases by a predetermined amount” is set so that the expectation given to the player is slightly higher than the aspect that “the meter does not increase”. In the table, different information is set for each random number selection range. Further, the table is set so that the mode in which the meter is displayed in red (special color) is more easily selected than the mode in which the meter is displayed in blue (reference color).

  Next, a lottery is performed in more detail for each random number selection range in the above table. For example, based on a table stored in the ROM 406 in advance as shown in FIG. Thus, the detailed contents of the first notification mode during the reach of period (2) are determined. For example, when the random number value 61 included in the random number selection range “0 to 89” in the table is acquired, a mode in which the meter is displayed in blue (reference color) is selected as the mode of the notification c. In the table, different information is set for each random number selection range. Further, the table is set so that the mode in which the meter is displayed in blue (reference color) is more easily selected than the mode in which the meter is displayed in red (special color).

  Next, lottery is performed in more detail for each random number selection range in the above table. For example, based on a table stored in the ROM 406 in advance as shown in FIG. Thus, the detailed contents of the second notification mode during the reach of period (2) are determined. For example, when the random number value 35 included in the random number selection range “30 to 99” in the table is acquired, a mode in which the meter is displayed in red (special color) is selected as the mode of the notification d. In the table, different information is set for each random number selection range. Further, the table is set so that the mode in which the meter is displayed in red (special color) is more easily selected than the mode in which the meter is displayed in blue (reference color).

  Next, a lottery is performed in more detail for each random number selection range in the above table. For example, based on a table stored in advance in the ROM 406 as shown in FIG. 31 (f) and a random number value obtained by a predetermined random number lottery. Thus, the detailed contents of the first notification mode during the re-lottery of period (3) are determined. For example, when the random number value 35 included in the random number selection range “20 to 99” in the table is acquired, a mode in which the meter is displayed in red (special color) is selected as the mode of the notification e. In the table, different information is set for each random number selection range. Further, the table is set so that the mode in which the meter is displayed in red (special color) is more easily selected than the mode in which the meter is displayed in blue (reference color).

  Next, a lottery is performed in more detail for each random number selection range in the above table. For example, based on a table stored in advance in the ROM 406 as shown in FIG. 31 (g) and a random number value acquired by a predetermined random number lottery. Thus, the detailed contents of the second notification mode during the re-lottery of period (3) are determined. For example, when the random number value 35 included in the random number selection range “0 to 49” is acquired in the above table, a mode in which the meter is displayed in blue (reference color) is selected as the mode of the notification f. On the other hand, for example, when the random value 70 included in the random number selection range “50 to 99” in the table is acquired, a mode in which the meter is displayed in red (special color) is selected as the mode of the notification f. In the table, different information is set for each random number selection range. In the table, the probability that the mode in which the meter is displayed in blue (reference color) is selected and the probability that the mode in which the meter is displayed in red (special color) are selected are set to be the same.

  More specifically, for example, if the determination result is a big hit, the fluctuation time of FIG. 1 is the fluctuation time for Super Reach A, and the notice C is won in the table shown in FIG. A series of effects as shown in FIG. 28 and FIG. 29 are performed.

In the example shown in FIG. 28 and FIG. 29, 0 to t 3 seconds are the period before reach (1), t 3 to t 7 seconds are the reach period (2), and t 7 to t 11 seconds are the redraw. The middle period (3), t 11 seconds and later is set as the period during the big hit round. In addition, the button reception period is notified in all periods, and the expectation feelings suggested are set in association with each other. Basically, one game is a game from the start of the change until the change is stopped and the symbol is fixed. However, if the game is a big hit, one game is taken until the big hit round ends.

  First, in the first button reception period before the decorative symbol stops, the meter is displayed in blue (reference color) in the first notification mode, and the meter color continues to be blue (reference color in the second notification mode). ) And the remaining amount of the meter is increasing. That is, although the expectation level has increased from a low level to a low level, the expectation of the big hit given to the player is still low. If the chance button 136 is operated during this button reception period, for example, a notice “...” Shown in FIG.

In addition, when the chance button 136 is operated during the first notification period of t 0 to t 1 seconds and when the chance button 136 is operated during the second notification period of t 1 to t 2 seconds. As described in the second embodiment, the content of the notice may be different. For example, when the chance button 136 is operated during the first notification period of t 0 to t 1 second, “...” is displayed, and the chance is displayed during the second notification period of t 1 to t 2 seconds. When the button 136 is operated, “Super hot!” May be displayed.

During the second button reception period during reach, when t 5 seconds elapses, the first notification mode changes to the second notification mode, and the meter color changes from blue to red (special color). As a result, the expectation for the big hit shifts from a slightly low state to a high state. When the determination result is 15R special big hit (probable big hit) or 15R big hit (ordinary big hit), a combination of decorative patterns for big hits determined in advance at time t 7 seconds (for example, “decoration 2-decoration” 2-decoration 2 "combination), and in other cases, it stops at a predetermined combination of decorative symbols for removal (for example, the combination of" decoration 2-decoration 1-decoration 2 "). When the determination result is 15R special jackpot or 15R jackpot, a re-lottery is performed, and the third button reception period starts.

  Note that, during the second button reception period, for example, as in the first embodiment, the content of the notice that is given when the chance button 136 is operated during the first notification period and the chance button during the second notification period. The content of the notice to be performed when 136 is operated may be set to be the same. Alternatively, similar to the second embodiment, different contents may be set. Further, the 15R special jackpot and the 15R jackpot are the determination results of whether or not the profit amount given to the player is a relatively large profit amount.

In the third button reception period, when the time t 9 seconds elapses, the first notification mode is switched to the second notification mode. At this time, when the mode in which the meter is displayed in blue is selected as the second notification mode in the table shown in FIG. 31 (g), the display shown on the right side of FIG. 29 (k) is performed. Is selected, the display shown on the left side of FIG. 29 (k) is performed.

  After that, regardless of which mode is selected, if the chance button 136 is not operated during the button reception period, the effect image shown in (l) of FIG. 28 is displayed, and after that, the 15R special jackpot is won. If it is, a predetermined symbol combination (for example, a combination of “decoration 7-decoration 7-decoration 7”) in which the decorative symbol indicates 15R special jackpot, or a predetermined symbol combination (for example, “decoration 2” -Stop at the combination of “decoration 2—decoration 2”. On the other hand, if the 15R jackpot is won, the game stops with a predetermined symbol combination (for example, a combination of “decoration 2—decoration 2—decoration 2”) in which the decoration symbol represents 15R jackpot. Even if the 15R special jackpot is won, the decorative symbol may not stop at the symbol combination indicating the 15R special jackpot at this time, but may stop at the symbol combination indicating the 15R jackpot. In that case, a special change promotion effect is made during the big hit round or at the end of the big hit round, or the special figure change game enters the special change state of the special figure high-precision normal figure high-precision after the big hit round without performing the positive change promotion production. It is set to be.

In the period during redrawing (3), if the chances button 136 is operated during a first broadcasting period of t 8 ~t 9 seconds, redrawing in from the time of accepting the operation of chance buttons 136 Until the period (3) is completed, any combination of decorative symbols (for example, a combination of “decoration 7-decoration 7-decoration 7” indicating 15R special jackpot if 15R special jackpot is won, or When the 15R big hit is won, a combination of “decoration 2—decoration 2—decoration 2” indicating the 15R big hit) is performed (see the left side of FIG. 30 (k)). On the other hand, when the chance button 136 is not operated, as described above, when t 9 seconds elapses, the button reception period is switched from the first notification mode to the second notification mode (FIG. 30 ( k) See center or right side).

Chance button 136 is not operated during the first broadcasting period, when the chance button 136 is operated during a second broadcast period t 9 ~t 10 seconds, from the time of accepting the operation of chance buttons 136 Any combination of decorative symbols (for example, “decoration 7-decoration 7-decoration 7” indicating 15R special jackpot if 15R special jackpot is won, etc.) If the winning combination is 15R jackpot, a combination of “decoration 2—decoration 2—decoration 2” indicating 15R jackpot, etc.) is performed to stop display.

  Since the time for performing the re-lottery is fixed at 5000 ms as described above, the time when the decorative symbols are stopped and displayed in an arbitrary combination is appropriately adjusted according to the timing of the operation of the chance button 136.

  In this way, when notifying the remaining time of a plurality of times in one game, it is possible to variously change the sense of expectation for the big hit given to the player. In particular, the expectation given to the player can be adjusted in detail by appropriately setting the notification mode of each period or the expectation based on the notice in association with each other.

  In other words, for example, when all of the notices are low expectations for the player, the player's expectation for the big hit (especially 15R special big hit) is lowered and the distinction from the case where the expectation is high is made clear. There are cases where it is possible. In addition, when a big hit (especially a 15R special big hit) is achieved with a low expectation, the player's joy may be further amplified.

  In addition, when a notice changes from a low expectation to a high notice for a player, the player's expectation for a big hit (especially a 15R special big hit) may be gradually increased.

  In addition, if the player changes from a high-anticipation notice to a low-anticipation notice, the player's expectation for the big hit may not be raised too much, and the disappointment when the big hit is not possible may be reduced. .

  Further, if all the notices are highly anticipated for the player, the player's expectation for the big hit (especially the 15R special big hit) may be further increased.

<Others>
It should be noted that the game table of the present invention is not limited to the above-described embodiment, and it is needless to say that various changes can be made without departing from the gist of the present invention.

  For example, the notification mode of the remaining time of the button reception period may be a notification mode as shown in FIG. In this example (Embodiment 9), a full-filled meter is initially displayed only in a reference color (for example, blue). For example, when the button reception period is 6 seconds, the meter is decreased by 1/6 per second. Go.

  When one second has elapsed from the start of notification, a partial area of the meter is changed to a special color (for example, red). The position of the special area changed to the special color is also moved as the meter decreases with the passage of time.

  The player presses the chance button 136 at the timing when the base end portion (here, the left end portion) of the meter is the reference color [timing (b), (c), (d) and (f) in FIG. 32]. In such a case, a notice with a low expectation (for example, a notice "..." shown in FIG. 14) is displayed. On the other hand, when the player presses the chance button 136 at the timing when the base end of the meter is in a special color (timing (e) in FIG. 32), a notice with high expectation (for example, in FIG. 14). "Advance notice!" Is displayed. In this way, there are cases where the range of games can be expanded by setting the notification mode so that a highly anticipated notice cannot be seen unless the chance button 136 is pressed in a timely manner.

  The first mode of displaying a meter with only the reference color is referred to as a first notification mode, and the mode of displaying a meter having a special color special area is referred to as a second notification mode.

  In this example, as shown in (c-1) or (c-2) of FIG. 32, the size of the special area changed to the special color can be arbitrarily set. Furthermore, as shown in (c-3) of FIG. 32, the position of the special area at the time of changing to the special color can be reset to an arbitrary position. As a result, the timing at which the player presses the Chang button 136 can be changed.

  Moreover, each of the above-described Examples 1 to 9 can be appropriately combined and configured. Further, for example, in each of the above-described first to ninth embodiments, the level of the expectation to the jackpot given to the player is changed by changing the color of the meter. However, the meter is blinking or not blinking. It is also possible to change the level of expectation for the big hit by changing and displaying. Further, for example, in each of the above-described first to ninth embodiments, the advance notice is performed by accepting the operation of the chance button 136, but the advance notice is performed by accepting the operation of the operation means other than the chance button 136. You may be made to be. Moreover, you may provide the aspect which switches from the 1st alerting | reporting aspect to the 2nd alerting | reporting aspect, and also the 3rd alerting | reporting aspect as a notification aspect of the remaining time of a button reception period. That is, as a notification mode of the remaining time of the button reception period, at least a pattern in which the notification mode does not change with the passage of time and a pattern in which the notification mode is switched in two stages of the first to second notification modes are provided. What is necessary is just to exclude the structure further provided with the pattern which a notification aspect switches in three steps or more.

  In each of the first to ninth embodiments described above, the meter is described as being decreased by a predetermined amount per second. However, the meter may be decreased by a predetermined amount per unit time, and the unit time is limited to 1 second. It is not something. Further, in each of the first to ninth embodiments described above, the remaining time of the button reception period is expressed in the form of a rectangular meter. However, for example, other forms such as a form in which a clock hand advances or a form in which the hourglass sand falls Of course, it can be expressed as

  In addition, as shown in FIG. 33, the gaming table according to the present invention includes a plurality of reels 1002 that are provided with a plurality of types of symbols and are driven to rotate, and a start lever 1004 for instructing rotation of the reels. A stop button 1006 for individually stopping the rotation of the reels, lottery means (lottery prize internal lottery) for determining whether or not a plurality of types of internal winnings are successful, and lottery means The combination of symbols displayed by the reel stop control means (reel stop control processing) for stopping the stop of the rotation of the reel based on the lottery result and the reels stopped based on the lottery result of the lottery means A determination means (winning determination process) for determining whether or not the symbol combination is predetermined corresponding to the winning combination, and when the symbol stop mode is a predetermined winning mode, In addition to payout control means (medal payout process 1008) for performing game medium payout processing for paying out game media corresponding to the award mode, the effect means 1010 for executing effects based on the lottery results of the lottery means is provided. The means detects a launch device 1014 that launches a ball into a predetermined game area 1012, a winning port 1016 configured to be able to enter a ball launched from the launch device, and a ball that has entered the winning port 1016 Means 1018, payout means 1020 for paying out a ball when detecting means 1018 detects a ball, variable display device 1022 for variably displaying a predetermined symbol (identification information), and moving to a position where variable display device 1022 is shielded The variable display device 102 is provided with a possible shutter 1024 and a movable body 1026 that operates in a predetermined operation mode, and when a game ball enters the winning opening and wins. 2 is also suitable for a slot machine 1000 ”which is a rendering device 1010 that displays a stop after changing a symbol to produce a game.

That is, the gaming machine of the present invention has at least a result determination result (for example, the main control unit 300) for determining whether or not the game is correct when a predetermined condition for determining whether or not the condition is satisfied, and the result of the determination on whether the result is correct. In the case of a determination result (for example, big hit), the second advantage is higher than the first advantage from the first control state where the advantage for the player is the first advantage. Control state transition means (for example, the main control unit 300) that shifts the control state to the second control state, operation means that can be operated by the player (for example, the chance button 136), and the result of the success / failure determination Notice means (for example, the first sub-control unit 400 and the decorative symbol display device 208) for performing an effect including a notice, and the notice means enables the player to accept the operation of the operation means. The remaining time notifying means (for example, the first sub-control unit 400 and the decorative symbol display device 208) for notifying the remaining time of the reception period in a predetermined notification mode, and the operation by the player during the reception period Specific notice means (for example, the first sub-control unit 400 and the decorative symbol display device 208) for making a predetermined notice suggesting the result of the determination of success or failure when an operation of the means is accepted, The notification mode has a first notification mode and a second notification mode different from the first notification mode, and the remaining time notification means has a predetermined time and the remaining time is predetermined. The remaining time is notified in the first notification mode until the length is reduced, and after the predetermined time has elapsed, the predetermined condition is not satisfied (for example, the notification shown in FIG. 12). In the mode determination table When the “notification F” is won), the first notification mode is continued and the remaining time is notified. On the other hand, when the predetermined condition is satisfied (for example, in the notification mode determination table shown in FIG. “A → E” or “Notification B → D” or “Notification C 1 → C 2 ” is selected to notify the remaining time by switching from the first notification mode to the second notification mode. I just need it.

  In the above gaming machine, the first notification mode and the second notification mode are set according to the result of the determination of success or failure and function as a notification similar to the notification performed by the specific notification means. Is preferred.

  Further, in the above gaming machine, the remaining time notification means indicates the remaining time to be notified in each of the first notification mode and the second notification mode according to a result of the determination of success / failure ( For example, when the determination result is determined based on the notification mode determination table and the result of the determination is the specific determination result, the remaining time to be notified by each of the first notification mode and the second notification mode is determined. It is preferable to make a determination based on a specific table (for example, a jackpot table of the notification mode determination table) among the predetermined tables.

  In the above gaming machine, the operation means can accept at least one of a single operation and a plurality of consecutive operations by the player, and the specific notice means is the predetermined notice means. Until the predetermined time elapses, and a notice is given on the condition that the one-time operation is accepted, and after the predetermined time elapses, the notice is given on the condition that the plurality of consecutive operations are accepted. Preferably it is done.

  Further, in the above gaming machine, the remaining time notification means makes the remaining time notified by at least one of the first notification mode and the second notification mode different from the actual length of the remaining time. It is preferable.

  At this time, the remaining time notifying means sets the predetermined length as the first length, and when the remaining time to be notified in the first notification mode is reduced to the first length, When the condition is satisfied, the first notification mode is switched to the second notification mode, and the remaining time to be notified in the second notification mode is longer than the first length. It is preferable to increase it.

  Further, the remaining time notifying means notifies the remaining time by the remaining amount of the meter, and notifies the meter decreasing speed to be notified by the second notification mode by the first notification mode. It is preferable to make it faster than the decrease rate.

  Note that the jackpot referred to in the present invention means that the next special figure variation game is a special figure high-precision ordinary figure high-precision [for example, 15R special big hit (see special figure A in FIG. 5A), 2R big hit (sudden probability change; FIG. 5). (See special figure C in (a))], special figure high-precision common figure low accuracy [eg 2R big hit (hidden probability change; see special figure E in FIG. 5 (a)]), special figure low-precision normal figure high accuracy [eg 15R big hit (see special figure B in Fig. 5 (a)), 2R big hit (suddenly short time; see special figure D in Fig. 5 (a))], and special figure low accuracy normal figure low accuracy [eg 2R big hit (sudden normal) ; Refer to the special drawing F in FIG. 5 (a))].

  Further, the loss in the present invention is that the next special figure variation game is special figure low probability normal figure low accuracy and does not apply to the above [for example, small hits (see special figures G and H in FIG. 5A) and Displacement (refer to special figures I and J in FIG. 5A)].
