本発明は、パチンコ遊技機を構成する遊技盤面上に装飾体を出没させることによって遊技進行上特徴的な演出効果を発揮させることができるようにした装飾体ユニットを備えた遊技機に関する。 The present invention relates to a gaming machine equipped with a decorative body unit that can exhibit a characteristic effect in the progress of the game by allowing the decorative body to appear and disappear on the surface of the game board constituting the pachinko gaming machine.

パチンコ遊技機においては、遊技盤の盤面に入賞口、風車、可変表示装置、電飾装置等の各種盤面部品を設けて遊技内容の多様性を図り、遊技の進行中における入賞、その他の状況変化を契機として可動盤面部品を種々の方向に動作させることにより演出効果を高めている。
例えば、遊技盤に設けられた始動入賞口に遊技球が入賞すると、遊技盤中の可変表示装置の液晶画面に表示される図柄が変動を開始し、所定時間経過後に停止した図柄が予め定めた大当たり図柄となった場合に大当たり状態となり、遊技者が大量の出球を獲得できるようになっている。このような遊技機では、遊技の興趣を高めるために様々な表示演出が行われる。
例えば、本出願人の提案に係る特許文献1には、遊技盤の盤面と平行な左右方向へ往復移動する第1可動役物と、遊技盤の前後方向へ往復移動する第2可動役物と、を備えた役物装置が開示されている。これによれば、遊技内容の複雑、高度化に対応した演出を実現することができる。
In pachinko machines, various board parts such as a prize opening, windmill, variable display device, and lighting device are provided on the board surface of the game board in order to diversify the contents of the game, winning prizes during the game, and other situation changes The stage effect is enhanced by moving the movable panel surface parts in various directions.
For example, when a game ball wins a start winning opening provided on the game board, the symbols displayed on the liquid crystal screen of the variable display device in the game board start to fluctuate, and the symbols that have been stopped after a predetermined time have been determined in advance. When it becomes a jackpot symbol, it becomes a jackpot state, and the player can acquire a large number of balls. In such a gaming machine, various display effects are performed in order to enhance the interest of the game.
For example, Patent Document 1 relating to the proposal of the present applicant includes a first movable accessory that reciprocates in the left-right direction parallel to the board surface of the game board, and a second movable accessory that reciprocates in the front-rear direction of the game board. , An accessory device including the above is disclosed. According to this, it is possible to realize an effect corresponding to the complexity and sophistication of game contents.

次に、図11(a)(b)及び(c)は、従来の可動盤面部品の構成例を示す正面図、要部拡大図、及び背面図である。この可動盤面部品は、一端に設けた図示しない回動軸を中心として盤面と平行な方向へ回動する一本の長尺アーム100の先端に可動役物110を取り付けて、可動役物110を実線で示した遊技盤面外位置から破線で示した遊技盤面上の液晶画面130の中央寄り位置にまで移動させて画面上の映像とのコラボレーションによる演出効果を発揮させるようにしている。
可動役物110は、複数個のLEDを搭載したプリント基板111と、プリント基板111の前面に配置されて各LEDからの発光によって発光する装飾本体115と、装飾本体115の外周縁から外径方向へ突設された複数の突出部材120と、各突出部材120の先端に固定された発光装飾体125と、を備えている。プリント基板111は、装飾本体115の背面に位置するプリント基板本体111Aと、プリント基板本体111Aに連接されて突出部材120に沿って外径方向へ延びるプリント基板枝部111Bと、を備えている。発光装飾体125の裏面側に延在するプリント基板枝部111Bの前面には図示しないLEDが搭載されており、このLEDはプリント基板枝部111Bに形成された図示しない配線パターンから電力の供給を受けて発光する。
Next, FIGS. 11A, 11 </ b> B, and 11 </ b> C are a front view, an enlarged view of a main part, and a rear view showing a configuration example of a conventional movable panel surface component. This movable panel surface component has a movable accessory 110 attached to the tip of one long arm 100 that rotates in a direction parallel to the panel surface around a rotation axis (not shown) provided at one end. By moving from a position outside the gaming board surface indicated by a solid line to a position closer to the center of the liquid crystal screen 130 on the gaming board surface indicated by a broken line, an effect of collaboration with an image on the screen is exhibited.
The movable accessory 110 includes a printed circuit board 111 on which a plurality of LEDs are mounted, a decorative body 115 that is disposed on the front surface of the printed circuit board 111 and emits light emitted from each LED, and an outer peripheral direction of the decorative body 115 from the outer periphery. A plurality of projecting members 120 projecting from the head and a light emitting decorative body 125 fixed to the tip of each projecting member 120. The printed circuit board 111 includes a printed circuit board body 111A located on the back surface of the decorative body 115, and a printed circuit board branch part 111B connected to the printed circuit board body 111A and extending in the outer diameter direction along the protruding member 120. An LED (not shown) is mounted on the front surface of the printed circuit board branch 111B extending to the back surface side of the light emitting decorative body 125, and this LED supplies power from a wiring pattern (not shown) formed on the printed circuit board branch 111B. Receives and emits light.

符号140は、液晶画面130の外周に沿って配置された外枠である。
可動役物110は、長尺アーム100が左右に揺動することによって実線で示した外側への退避位置と、破線で示した内側への突出位置との間を進退する。可動役物110は外枠140側に突出した発光装飾体125を有しているため、実線で示した退避位置ではこの発光装飾体125が外枠140と接した時に外側への揺動を停止する。
しかし、発光装飾体125が繰り返し外枠140との接触を繰り返すことにより、図11(b)に示すように経時的に発光装飾体125と外枠140との接触部や、発光装飾体と突出部材120との連結部に、破損、ひび割れ等が発生し易く、耐久性の低下が著しかった。
Reference numeral 140 denotes an outer frame disposed along the outer periphery of the liquid crystal screen 130.
The movable accessory 110 moves back and forth between an outward retracted position indicated by a solid line and an inwardly protruded position indicated by a broken line as the long arm 100 swings left and right. Since the movable accessory 110 has the light emitting decorative body 125 protruding to the outer frame 140 side, the swinging outward is stopped when the light emitting decorative body 125 contacts the outer frame 140 at the retracted position indicated by the solid line. To do.
However, the light-emitting decorative body 125 repeatedly contacts the outer frame 140 repeatedly, so that the contact portion between the light-emitting decorative body 125 and the outer frame 140 or the light-emitting decorative body protrudes over time as shown in FIG. Damage and cracks were likely to occur at the connecting portion with the member 120, and the durability was significantly reduced.

一方、演出効果を高めるために可動役物が中央寄りに突出した時には可動役物の面積をできるだけ大きく見せる一方で、遊技の興趣の低下を防止するために、退避位置に移動した時には正面から可動役物をできるだけ視認できないように他の装飾体によって隠蔽したいという要請がある。
しかし、装飾本体115から外枠140側に発光装飾体125を突出させた構成を採用する限り、可動役物110が退避位置にあるときに装飾本体及び他方の発光装飾体の大半の部分を隠蔽させることは難しくなる。また、退避位置にあるときに正面から視認できる面積を少なくするためには可動役物の全体面積を小さくせざるを得ないが、その場合には液晶画面上の映像とのコラボレーションによる迫力ある演出を実現し得なくなるという問題があった。
仮に、装飾本体115に対して発光装飾体125を内外径方向へ出没自在にして、発光装飾体125が外枠140と当接したときに押圧されて引っ込むように構成することも可能ではあるが、この場合にはプリント基板本体111Aから外枠側の発光装飾体125へ向けてプリント基板枝部111Bを延長形成することが不可能となるため、発光装飾体125を発光させることが不可能となる。
On the other hand, in order to enhance the production effect, when the movable object protrudes toward the center, the area of the movable object is shown as large as possible. There is a demand to conceal an accessory with another decorative body so that it cannot be seen as much as possible.
However, as long as the configuration in which the light emitting decorative body 125 protrudes from the decorative main body 115 to the outer frame 140 side is adopted, the majority of the decorative main body and the other light emitting decorative body are concealed when the movable accessory 110 is in the retracted position. It becomes difficult to let them. Also, in order to reduce the area that can be seen from the front when in the retracted position, the entire area of the movable accessory must be reduced, but in that case, a powerful effect by collaboration with the image on the LCD screen There was a problem that could not be realized.
Temporarily, it is possible to make the light emitting decorative body 125 protrude and retract in the inner and outer diameter directions with respect to the decorative main body 115 so that the light emitting decorative body 125 is pressed and retracted when it contacts the outer frame 140. In this case, since the printed circuit board branch part 111B cannot be extended from the printed circuit board body 111A toward the light emitting decorative body 125 on the outer frame side, the light emitting decorative body 125 cannot emit light. Become.

The decorative body unit 30 protrudes into the board surface of the game board 1, specifically, the center member 5 disposed in the center part of the game board (the front surface of the symbol display device 6) (FIGS. 1 and 2). And a decorative body 31 that moves along the game board surface between a retreat position (outside of the game board surface, FIG. 3) retracted from the inside of the game board surface to the outside, a drive mechanism 70 that moves the decorative body 31 forward and backward, and And a supporting member 80 for supporting.
The decorative body 31 is an image of a transformation item (transformation badge) of a character appearing in a drama.
The decorative body 31 is fixed to a printed circuit board 35 on which a plurality of LEDs are mounted, a decorative body 40 that is disposed on the front surface side of the printed circuit board 35 and emits light by light emitted from the LEDs, and a back surface side of the decorative body 40. Thus, a back plate 44 that accommodates the printed circuit board 35, a protruding / decorating decorative body 45 supported so as to be able to protrude and retract from the outer peripheral edge of the decorative main body, and an outer peripheral edge of the decorative main body 40 are integrally projected in the outer diameter direction. The light emitting decorative body 46, the elastic member 50 that urges the appearance decorative body 45 to the outside, and the light guide member 51 that guides light emitted from the other LEDs 55 mounted on the printed circuit board 35 to the appearance decorative body. .

駆動機構70は、先端部に装飾体31を固定し、基端部に回動軸71aを備えたアーム71と、アーム基端部に順次組み付けられた複数のギヤからなるギヤ群73と、ギヤ群を回転させることによってアーム71を回動軸71aを中心として盤面と平行な方向へ回動(揺動)させるモータ75と、図示しない制御手段と、を備えている。
アーム71の基端部には円盤状の部材71bが一体化されており、この部材71bは大径のギヤ部材73aとネジ止めにより一体化されている。ギヤ部材73aの中心穴73a’内を回動軸71aが貫通している。ギヤ部材73aの外周のギヤ部は、他のギヤ73b、73c、73dと順次噛合している。ギヤ73dはモータ75の出力軸にその軸心を固定されている。
駆動機構70及び装飾体31は、支持部材80によって支持されている。支持部材80は、前壁部材81と、後壁部材83と、中壁部材85と、を有し、後壁部材83と中壁部材85との間で駆動機構70を挟み込むように支持している。前壁部材81と後壁部材83と中壁部材85とは、ネジによって互いに連結一体化している。
The drive mechanism 70 has a decorative body 31 fixed to the distal end portion, an arm 71 having a rotation shaft 71a at the proximal end portion, a gear group 73 including a plurality of gears sequentially assembled to the arm proximal end portion, and a gear. A motor 75 that rotates (swings) the arm 71 around the rotation shaft 71a in a direction parallel to the board surface by rotating the group and a control means (not shown) are provided.
A disc-shaped member 71b is integrated with the base end portion of the arm 71, and this member 71b is integrated with a large-diameter gear member 73a by screws. The rotation shaft 71a passes through the center hole 73a ′ of the gear member 73a. The gear portion on the outer periphery of the gear member 73a meshes with the other gears 73b, 73c, 73d sequentially. The shaft center of the gear 73 d is fixed to the output shaft of the motor 75.
The drive mechanism 70 and the decorative body 31 are supported by a support member 80. The support member 80 includes a front wall member 81, a rear wall member 83, and an intermediate wall member 85, and supports the drive mechanism 70 so as to sandwich the drive mechanism 70 between the rear wall member 83 and the intermediate wall member 85. Yes. The front wall member 81, the rear wall member 83, and the middle wall member 85 are connected and integrated with each other by screws.

回動軸71aは後壁部材83に設けた穴である軸支部83aに一端を嵌合させると共に、他端を中壁部材85に設けた穴内に嵌合させることによって固定されており、回動軸71aをギヤ部材73aの中心穴73a’に遊嵌してギヤ部材73aを回転自在に支持している。他のギヤ73b、73c、73dは、夫々後壁部材83と中壁部材85によってその軸部を回転自在に軸支されている。モータ75は、後壁部材83と中壁部材85との間に配置固定されている。図示しない制御手段からの制御によってモータ75を正逆転することにより、ギヤ群73を経由して駆動力がアーム71に伝達されて装飾体31と共に揺動する。   The rotation shaft 71a is fixed by fitting one end into a shaft support portion 83a that is a hole provided in the rear wall member 83 and fitting the other end into a hole provided in the middle wall member 85. The shaft 71a is loosely fitted in the center hole 73a ′ of the gear member 73a to rotatably support the gear member 73a. The other gears 73b, 73c, 73d are pivotally supported by the rear wall member 83 and the middle wall member 85 so as to be rotatable. The motor 75 is disposed and fixed between the rear wall member 83 and the middle wall member 85. By driving the motor 75 forward and backward by control from a control means (not shown), the driving force is transmitted to the arm 71 via the gear group 73 and swings with the decorative body 31.

なお、本例では、外面にギヤ73cと噛合するラックギヤ76aを備えた箱体76と、箱体76内に収容される錘部材77と、からなる付勢部材78を用いて、装飾体31が図4(a)に示した突出位置から図4(b)に示した退避位置に移動する際の速度を増速させるようにしている。即ち、付勢部材78は支持部材80内部で上下方向へ進退自在に支持されると共に、縦に延びるラックギヤ76aは中間位置にあるギヤ73cと常時噛合している。このため、装飾体31を図4(a)の突出位置へ移動させる方向へモータ75が回転する場合にはギヤ73cが図6中で時計回り方向へ回転するため、付勢部材78は上昇する。一方、装飾体31が図4(a)の突出位置にあるときにモータ75の駆動をオフにしてモータの出力軸をフリーの状態に移行させると、付勢部材78内の錘部材77の重量によってギヤ73cが図6中で反時計回り方向aへ回転させられて、付勢部材78は急速に下降する。このため、ギヤ部材73aも急速に反時計回り方向aに回転してアーム71及び装飾体31を迅速に退避位置に移動させる。   In this example, the decorative body 31 is formed by using an urging member 78 including a box 76 having a rack gear 76a meshing with the gear 73c on the outer surface and a weight member 77 accommodated in the box 76. The speed when moving from the protruding position shown in FIG. 4A to the retracted position shown in FIG. 4B is increased. That is, the urging member 78 is supported in the support member 80 so as to advance and retreat in the vertical direction, and the vertically extending rack gear 76a is always meshed with the gear 73c at the intermediate position. For this reason, when the motor 75 rotates in the direction to move the decorative body 31 to the protruding position in FIG. 4A, the gear 73c rotates in the clockwise direction in FIG. . On the other hand, if the driving of the motor 75 is turned off and the output shaft of the motor is shifted to a free state when the decorative body 31 is in the protruding position of FIG. 4A, the weight of the weight member 77 in the urging member 78 As a result, the gear 73c is rotated in the counterclockwise direction a in FIG. 6, and the urging member 78 is rapidly lowered. For this reason, the gear member 73a also rapidly rotates in the counterclockwise direction a, and the arm 71 and the decorative body 31 are quickly moved to the retracted position.

本例では付勢部材として錘部材77の重量を利用しているが、錘部材に代えて図示しない弾性部材を用いても良い。即ち、トーションバネ、コイルバネ等からなる付勢部材を用いてアーム71を退避方向へ付勢するようにしてもよい。
このように付勢部材78を用いることにより装飾体の退避動作を迅速化して遊技内容に変化を付与することができる。
また、前壁部材81にはフォトインタラプタ87が固定されており、アーム基端部の円盤状の部材71bから突設した被検知片71b’をフォトインタラプタが検知することによって、アーム及び装飾体の位置を検知するようにしている。
In this example, the weight of the weight member 77 is used as the urging member, but an elastic member (not shown) may be used instead of the weight member. That is, the arm 71 may be urged in the retracting direction by using an urging member made of a torsion spring, a coil spring or the like.
Thus, by using the urging member 78, it is possible to speed up the retracting operation of the decorative body and to change the game content.
Further, a photo interrupter 87 is fixed to the front wall member 81, and the photo interrupter detects the detected piece 71b 'protruding from the disk-like member 71b at the base end of the arm, so that the arm and the decorative body The position is detected.

次に、図5に示すように、支持部材80の側壁86の装飾体の出没装飾体45と対応する部位には開口86aが形成されている。装飾体31が図4(b)に示した退避位置に移動したときに、側壁86の外側に位置するセンター部材5の枠体(ストッパ)5aに当接するように構成している。即ち、支持部材80をセンター部材5の一側部(本例では、左側縁)に組み付ける際に、枠体5aと側壁86との間にギャップGを形成しておき、開口86aから出没装飾体45が外側へ突出して枠体5aと接触できるように構成されている。   Next, as shown in FIG. 5, an opening 86 a is formed at a portion corresponding to the decorative body 45 of the decorative body on the side wall 86 of the support member 80. When the decorative body 31 moves to the retracted position shown in FIG. 4B, the decorative body 31 is configured to come into contact with the frame body (stopper) 5a of the center member 5 located outside the side wall 86. That is, when the support member 80 is assembled to one side (in this example, the left side edge) of the center member 5, a gap G is formed between the frame 5 a and the side wall 86, and the decorative body that appears and disappears from the opening 86 a. 45 is configured to project outward and to contact the frame 5a.

次に、図7乃至図10に基づいてプリント基板及び出没装飾体の構造について説明する。
プリント基板35は、装飾本体40の背面に位置するプリント基板本体41と、プリント基板本体41に連接されて発光装飾体46に沿って外径方向へ延びるプリント基板枝部42と、を備えている。発光装飾体46の裏面側に延在するプリント基板枝部42の前面には図示しないLEDが搭載されており、このLEDはプリント基板枝部42に形成された図示しない配線パターンから電力の供給を受けて発光する。
Next, the structure of the printed circuit board and the ornamental body will be described with reference to FIGS.
The printed circuit board 35 includes a printed circuit board body 41 located on the back surface of the decorative body 40 and a printed circuit board branch 42 connected to the printed circuit board body 41 and extending in the outer diameter direction along the light emitting decorative body 46. . An LED (not shown) is mounted on the front surface of the printed circuit board branch 42 that extends to the back side of the light emitting decorative body 46, and this LED supplies power from a wiring pattern (not shown) formed on the printed circuit board branch 42. Receives and emits light.

導光部材51は、プリント基板本体41の対応する一辺に設けた横発光型のLED55の出射面に一端を近接させた状態で固定された棒状体(棒状導光部材)であり、その他端部は外径方向(外側)へ突出している。出没装飾体45は、透光性の材料からなる円形の電飾部45aと、電飾部45aに固定されたブロック状のスライド部材45bと、を備え、スライド部材45bに設けた貫通穴内に導光部材51が挿通されることにより、出没装飾体45は内外径方向へ進退可能に構成されている。また、導光部材51の外周にはコイルバネからなる弾性部材50が配置されており、弾性部材50はスライド部材45bを外側へ突出する方向へ常時付勢している。
導光部材51の一端(入射端部)はプリント基板35に固定された横発光型LED55と対面してLED55からの出射光を入射し、入射光は導光部材内部を長手方向へ導光されて電飾部45aに達してこれを発光させる(図10)。図9(a)の状態において、導光部材の他端部から出射される光は電飾部45aを発光させることができる。
The light guide member 51 is a rod-shaped body (rod-shaped light guide member) that is fixed in a state in which one end is brought close to the emission surface of the lateral light emitting LED 55 provided on a corresponding side of the printed circuit board body 41, and the other end portion. Protrudes in the outer diameter direction (outside). The ornamental body 45 includes a circular electric decoration part 45a made of a translucent material and a block-shaped slide member 45b fixed to the electric decoration part 45a, and is led into a through hole provided in the slide member 45b. By the insertion of the optical member 51, the appearance decoration body 45 is configured to advance and retreat in the inner and outer diameter directions. In addition, an elastic member 50 made of a coil spring is disposed on the outer periphery of the light guide member 51, and the elastic member 50 constantly urges the slide member 45b to protrude outward.
One end (incident end portion) of the light guide member 51 faces the lateral light emitting LED 55 fixed to the printed circuit board 35 and enters the light emitted from the LED 55, and the incident light is guided in the longitudinal direction inside the light guide member. And reaches the illumination part 45a to emit light (FIG. 10). In the state of FIG. 9A, the light emitted from the other end of the light guide member can cause the electric decoration 45a to emit light.

スライド部材45bは導光部材の他の部位をスライド自在に挿通支持している。スライド部材45bを遮光性部材により構成するか、遮光性塗料を塗布した部材により構成することにより、導光部材内を導光される光が漏れ出るロスを防止でき、効率的に電飾部45aを発光させることができる。また、横発光型のLED55からの光の入射、及び電飾部45aへの発光に関与しない導光部材の外面に遮光性塗料を塗布して光のロスを防止しても良い。   The slide member 45b inserts and supports other parts of the light guide member in a slidable manner. By configuring the slide member 45b with a light-shielding member or with a member coated with a light-shielding paint, it is possible to prevent a loss of light guided through the light guide member, and to efficiently illuminate the illumination part 45a. Can emit light. Further, light loss may be prevented by applying a light-shielding paint to the outer surface of the light guide member that is not involved in the incidence of light from the lateral light emitting LED 55 and the light emission to the electric decoration 45a.

支持部材80の側壁86に出没装飾体45を外側へ突出させるための開口86aを形成したことにより、装飾体31が図4(b)に示した退避位置に移動したときに、出没装飾体45は支持部材の側壁86と当接することなく、側壁のさらに外側に位置するセンター部材5の枠体(ストッパ)5aに当接して没するように構成されている。このため、図4(b)のようにギャップGの寸法分と、出没装飾体45が没した長さ分だけ、更に装飾体31は支持部材80の背面側に隠れることができる。
上記のように付勢部材78を用いてアーム及び装飾体を退避方向へ迅速に復帰させる構成を採用した場合には、電飾部45aが枠体5aと衝突する際の衝撃が強くなるが、電飾部45aは弾性部材50のクッション作用によって緩衝されるため、ダメージを大幅に低減することができ、耐久性を高めることができる。
Since the opening 86a for projecting the appearance ornamental body 45 outward is formed on the side wall 86 of the support member 80, the appearance ornamental body 45 is moved when the ornamental body 31 is moved to the retracted position shown in FIG. Is configured to abut against the frame (stopper) 5a of the center member 5 located further outside the side wall without abutting against the side wall 86 of the support member. For this reason, as shown in FIG. 4B, the decorative body 31 can be further hidden behind the support member 80 by the dimension of the gap G and the length of the protrusion / depression decorative body 45.
When the configuration in which the arm and the decorative body are quickly returned to the retracting direction using the biasing member 78 as described above is adopted, the impact when the electric decoration portion 45a collides with the frame body 5a becomes strong. Since the electrical decoration part 45a is buffered by the cushioning action of the elastic member 50, damage can be significantly reduced and durability can be enhanced.

次に、以上の構成を備えた装飾体ユニットを退避位置と突出位置との間で進退させる手順について説明する。
装飾体ユニット30が図4(a)の突出位置にあるときに、プリント基板35上のLEDを発光させることにより出没装飾体45の電飾部45aと発光装飾体46を発光させることができ、図柄表示装置6の画面上の映像とのコラボレーションによる演出を実現できる。
突出位置にある装飾体ユニット30を図4(b)の退避位置に移動させる場合には、制御手段がモータ75を退避方向へ回転させることによりギヤ群73を介して駆動力がアーム71に伝達されてアーム71が退避位置に移動する。この際、付勢部材78の付勢力によってアーム71及び装飾体31は迅速に移動する。装飾本体40から突設された出没装飾体45は開口86aを越えて枠体5aと当接する位置にまで達し、更に電飾部45aは枠体5aによって相対的に押圧されることによって弾性部材50に抗しながら導光部材51に沿って装飾本体40側へ没する。このため、図3に示すように装飾体31は支持部材80、その他、遊技盤の左縁部に配置された飾り部材によって、その大半が隠蔽された状態となる(図7、図8)。
なお、開口86aを設けずに、電飾部45aを側壁(ストッパ)86と当接させることによって電飾部を没するように構成してもよい。
Next, a procedure for moving the decorative body unit having the above configuration between the retracted position and the protruding position will be described.
When the decorative body unit 30 is in the projecting position of FIG. 4A, the LED 45 on the printed circuit board 35 is caused to emit light so that the illumination part 45a and the light-emitting decorative body 46 can emit light. It is possible to realize an effect by collaboration with the video on the screen of the symbol display device 6.
When the decorative body unit 30 in the protruding position is moved to the retracted position shown in FIG. 4B, the driving force is transmitted to the arm 71 via the gear group 73 by the control means rotating the motor 75 in the retracted direction. As a result, the arm 71 moves to the retracted position. At this time, the arm 71 and the decorative body 31 move quickly due to the biasing force of the biasing member 78. The appearance decorative body 45 projecting from the decorative main body 40 reaches the position where the decorative body 45 abuts the frame body 5a beyond the opening 86a, and the electric decoration portion 45a is relatively pressed by the frame body 5a, thereby elastic member 50. It sunk to the decoration main body 40 side along the light guide member 51, resisting. For this reason, as shown in FIG. 3, most of the decorative body 31 is concealed by the support member 80 and other decorative members arranged on the left edge of the game board (FIGS. 7 and 8).
In addition, you may comprise so that an electrical decoration part may be immersed by making the electrical decoration part 45a contact | abut with the side wall (stopper) 86, without providing the opening 86a.

電飾部45aが枠体5a、或いは側壁86に対して勢いよく衝突したとしも、弾性部材50によるクッション作用によって衝撃が緩和されるため、出没装飾体45、及びこれを支持する装飾本体40が受けるダメージを大幅に低減させることができる。
このように本発明によれば、遊技盤面の中央、或いは中央寄りに装飾体が位置する時にはできるだけ装飾体を大きく見せて演出効果を高めたい一方で、装飾体が遊技盤面の側方に退避する場合にはできるだけ視認されないように他の部材によって隠蔽したい場合に好適である。
装飾体31に、弾性部材50によって突出方向へ付勢した出没装飾体45を設けたことによって、装飾体が退避位置に移動したときに出没装飾体が当接する枠体5a、その他のストッパ部位との間の衝撃を吸収、緩和して各部材の耐久性を高めることができる。
Even if the electric decoration part 45a collides with the frame 5a or the side wall 86 vigorously, the impact is alleviated by the cushioning action by the elastic member 50, so that the decorative body 45 and the decorative body 40 that supports the decorative body 45 are provided. The damage received can be greatly reduced.
As described above, according to the present invention, when the decorative body is located at the center of the game board surface or near the center, it is desired to make the decorative body appear as large as possible to enhance the effect, while the decorative body is retracted to the side of the game board surface. In this case, it is suitable when it is desired to conceal it with another member so that it is not visually recognized as much as possible.
By providing the decorative body 31 with the in / out decorative body 45 biased in the protruding direction by the elastic member 50, the frame body 5a with which the in / out decorative body abuts when the decorative body moves to the retracted position, and other stopper portions It is possible to increase the durability of each member by absorbing and mitigating the impact between the members.

また、装飾本体40から出没装飾体45を出没自在に構成した場合には、装飾本体に対応して配置されたプリント基板本体上のLEDの光を横方向に離間して配置された出没装飾体の電飾部45aにまで到達させることが難しくなるが、本発明ではプリント基板に設けた横発光LED55から横方向へ出射される光を導光部材で受け、導光部材を介して電飾部45aへ導光して発光させるようにしたので、プリント基板の正面以外の部位(横方向)に離間配置された電飾部を効果的に発光させることが可能となる。
また、電飾部を棒状の導光部材によってスライド自在に支持する一方で、導光部材の外周に設けたコイルバネによって電飾部を突出方向へ付勢するようにしたので、部品点数を減らして導光部材とクッション機構をコンパクトにまとめることができる。
When the decorative body 45 is configured so as to be able to appear and retract from the decorative body 40, the decorative decoration body is arranged so that the LED lights on the printed circuit board main body arranged corresponding to the decorative main body are spaced apart in the horizontal direction. However, in the present invention, the light emitted from the lateral light emitting LED 55 provided on the printed board in the lateral direction is received by the light guide member, and the electrical decoration portion is interposed through the light guide member. Since the light is guided to 45a so as to emit light, it is possible to effectively emit light from the electrical decoration portions that are spaced apart from each other (lateral direction) other than the front surface of the printed circuit board.
In addition, while the electric decoration part is slidably supported by the rod-shaped light guide member, the electric decoration part is urged in the protruding direction by the coil spring provided on the outer periphery of the light guide member, so the number of parts is reduced. The light guide member and the cushion mechanism can be combined in a compact manner.

本例では、装飾体は遊技盤中央部から横方向へ進退するように構成したが、上下方向、或いは斜め方向へ進退するように構成してもよい。また、アームによって装飾体を円弧状の軌跡を描いて移動させるようにしたが、直線状の軌跡に沿って装飾体を移動させる場合にも本発明は適用可能である。
上記実施形態に示した装飾体ユニットと、遊技盤は、遊技盤ユニットを構成している。
更に、パチンコ遊技機の詳細な構成については図示説明していないが、本願発明の技術的範囲中にパチンコ遊技機が含まれることに疑いがない。
In this example, the decorative body is configured to advance and retract in the lateral direction from the center of the game board, but may be configured to advance and retract in the vertical direction or in an oblique direction. Further, although the decorative body is moved by the arm while drawing an arcuate trajectory, the present invention can also be applied to a case where the decorative body is moved along a linear trajectory.
The decorative body unit and the game board shown in the above embodiment constitute a game board unit.
Further, although the detailed configuration of the pachinko gaming machine is not illustrated and described, there is no doubt that the pachinko gaming machine is included in the technical scope of the present invention.
