Description

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

  Conventionally, a gaming machine such as a pachinko machine is provided with a gaming board having a gaming area into which a gaming medium such as a gaming ball is driven. In the game area of the game board, obstacle nails, windmills, and winning holes are provided at appropriate places, and an out port for discharging game media that has not won the winning hole to the outside of the gaming area is provided. When a game medium wins a winning opening, a predetermined number of game media are paid out. An opening penetrating in the front-rear direction is formed at the approximate center of the board surface of the game board, and an effect display device capable of displaying various effect images is provided so as to close the opening from the rear side. On the surface side of the outer periphery of the board surface opening of the board, a character or logo pattern for characterizing the type of gaming machine, a predetermined pattern or the like is given.

  In this type of gaming machine, the patterns and patterns that characterize the model are simply drawn on the surface of the board of the gaming board, so it is flat and does not change, and the design freedom seems to be similar It was difficult to differentiate from other gaming machines because it was easy to become a product. Therefore, the board surface of the game board is a transparent board, and the size of the effect display device arranged on the rear side of the game board is set to the size of the entire game area, and the pattern or pattern characterizing the model is an image such as a movie. Proposals have been made so that the display can be differentiated from other gaming machines by changing the design, pattern, etc. by displaying on a large effect display device (for example, Patent Document 1 to Patent Document 3). .

JP 2005-28119 A JP 2006-75454 A JP 2006-95192 A

  However, in general, the part with the pattern or pattern that characterizes the model is the part where the game medium flows down, and if the pattern or pattern changes greatly due to the moving image etc. in that part, the game medium that flows down Problems that make it difficult to see. For this reason, in this type of gaming machine, images such as symbols and patterns that characterize the model displayed on the effect display device are not changed so much, and only a planar still image is switched. There is a problem that it does not look much like a gaming machine, and even if a large effect display device is used, the player's interest cannot be strongly attracted.

  In addition, when the gaming machine is not turned on, an image characterizing the model is not displayed, and the model cannot be specified by the image. It is necessary to equip a shaped character or decoration, etc., and the basin where the game medium flows down becomes narrow due to the character or decoration, and the movement of the game medium becomes monotonous and boring, reducing the interest of the player There is a risk of letting you.

  Therefore, in view of the above circumstances, an object of the present invention is to provide a gaming machine provided with a gaming board that can attract a player's interest and suppress a decrease in interest.

Mean 1: In the gaming machine,
“A frame-like game area partition frame member that has an outer rail and an inner rail and forms an outer periphery of a game area into which a game medium is driven by a player's operation;
A transparent plate-like gaming panel arranged to close the gaming area behind the gaming area partition frame member;

And a moving means for moving at least the first decorative member in the back box ”.

  Here, the “game panel” may be a transparent plate, and the materials thereof are “acrylic resin”, “polycarbonate resin”, “ABS resin”, “polypropylene”, “polyarylate resin”, “methacrylic resin”. ”,“ Glass ”, and the like. In addition, it is desirable to use an acrylic resin as the game panel, and this acrylic resin has higher transparency than other transparent members, and the decorative body or accessory of the back unit disposed on the rear side of the game panel, etc. Can be made easier to see.

  Further, “to hold the gaming panel so as to be detachable” includes “to be engaged with at least two substantially opposite sides of the gaming panel and engaging with the engaging portion of the gaming panel on the panel holder. ”And“ removably holding by engaging the engaging portion and the engaged portion ”,“ perforating an insertion hole at an appropriate position of the game panel, and inserting a screw or the like through the insertion hole What is detachably held by being screwed into the panel holder ". Furthermore, the depth of the “holding step portion” is “the step portion whose depth is such that the front surface of the game panel and the front surface of the panel holder are substantially flush with each other”, and “the front surface of the game panel is more than the front surface of the panel holder. A stepped portion having a depth that is a deep position ”.

  Examples of the “effect display means” include “liquid crystal display device”, “EL display device”, “plasma display device”, “CRT”, “laser display”, and the like. In addition, it is desirable to use a thin display means such as a liquid crystal display device, etc., and it becomes possible to take the depth direction of the gaming machine relatively wide, the depth of the back box in the back unit is widened, and more three-dimensional. A light emitting decorative body (decorative member) can be arranged.

  Furthermore, the “predetermined item” is a concept that characterizes the model of a gaming machine with a specific theme selected from comics, animation, novels, movies, dramas, sports, hobbies, etc., and a person (character) related to the concept, Places (stage settings), tools (items), etc.

  The “first decorative member” includes a member imitating an iceberg as a predetermined object, a member imitating a glacier as a predetermined object, a member imitating ice as a predetermined object, and water or lava as a predetermined object. "A member imitating a fluid such as a surface", "A member imitating the surface of a water such as the surface of a sea or lake", "A member imitating a predetermined logo mark characterizing a model as a predetermined object", "Characterizing a model as a predetermined object A member imitating a predetermined character ”,“ a member imitating a predetermined structure as the predetermined object ”, and the like. In addition, examples of the “first decorative member” include “thing made of a non-translucent member”, “one made of a light-transmissive member”, “one portion made of a light-transmissive member”, and the like. As the translucent member, a colored or colorless transparent member or a colored opaque member can be used.

  Further, as the “moving means”, “having at least a pinion gear rotated by a motor and a rack gear meshing with the pinion gear, which can be moved by sliding of the rack gear”, “the rotation of the motor is a gear, a link mechanism , "Movable by transmitting via a shaft or belt", "movable by transmitting the advance / retreat of the plunger by the solenoid", and the like. In addition, as a moving direction, “a direction along the game board surface”, “a direction substantially perpendicular to the game board surface, that is, a front-rear direction”, “a direction along the game board surface and a front-rear direction combined” , Etc.

  According to the configuration of the means 1, a frame-shaped game area partition frame member that forms an outer periphery of a game area having an outer rail and an inner rail and into which a game medium is driven, and a rear side of the game area partition frame member A transparent plate-like gaming panel arranged so as to close the gaming area, a holding step part that covers the outer periphery of the gaming panel and is detachably held from the front side, and is formed inside the holding step part and substantially corresponds to the gaming area A frame-shaped panel holder that has a through-hole that penetrates in the front-rear direction and is attached to the rear side of the game area partition frame member, and a predetermined depth that is attached to the rear side of the panel holder and the front side is open A box-shaped back box with an opening on the rear wall, a back unit having at least a decorative body arranged on the outer periphery of the opening in the back box, and a back unit arranged so as to close the opening of the back unit from the rear side An effect table that can display a predetermined effect image And a decorative unit of the back unit includes a first decorative member having an outer shape imitating a predetermined object, and a moving means for moving at least the first decorative member within the back box. It is what.

  As a result, a first decorative member having a three-dimensional shape with a characteristic imitating a predetermined object, which is moved by the moving means, is arranged on the rear side of the transparent game panel forming the game area. As the player moves, the background of the gaming board as viewed from the player, specifically, the rear side of the gaming board surface on which the obstacle nails are implanted, changes three-dimensionally. It is possible to give a player a glance at an impression that is completely different from a typical picture or image, and by changing the shape that did not change with conventional gaming machines, An unprecedented impression can be strongly given, and the interest of the player can be more strongly attracted than other gaming machines, and the expectation for the gaming machine can be increased, thereby suppressing a decrease in interest.

  In addition, since the background of the game board is changed by moving the first decorative member arranged on the rear side of the transparent game panel by the moving means, a large effect display is provided on the rear side of the transparent game board. Compared to the case where the device is arranged and the background of the game board is changed by the effect image (including moving images), the change method can be made easier and simpler, and the front side of the decorative body Even if the game medium is distributed, it is possible to prevent the game medium from being hard to see and to prevent the interest in the game from being lowered.

  Furthermore, since the first decorative member can be moved by the moving means, for example, by changing the first decorative member according to the gaming situation, a change in the gaming situation or a notice of the change is given to the player. It can be suggested, and the movement of the first decorative member can increase the expectation for the game and prevent the player's interest from decreasing.

  In addition, you may make it arrange | position the light emission decoration board | substrate provided with LED on the back side of a 1st decoration member, and it becomes possible by this to make a 1st decoration member light-emission decoration, lighting / flashing, various The first decorative member that emits light of the color can further attract the player's interest, and can prevent the player's interest from deteriorating.

  Moreover, you may make it equip the back side of a 1st decoration member with the 2nd decoration member which becomes visible from a player with the movement of a 1st decoration member, or becomes invisible, thereby Further, not only the fun of moving the first decorative member but also the fun of appearing of the second decorative member can be given, and it can be expected that the player can be more entertained and entertained.

  Further, in the conventional gaming machine, the three-dimensional first decorative member is arranged through the transparent gaming panel at a position where a two-dimensional picture or image can be visually recognized in the gaming area. However, it is possible to give a different impression from the conventional gaming machine, greatly differentiate this gaming machine from other gaming machines, and possibility to select this gaming machine as a gaming machine to play Can be high.

  Furthermore, because the three-dimensional first decorative member arranged on the rear side of the gaming panel can characterize the gaming machine model, the characteristics for characterizing the model within the gaming area as in conventional gaming machines. There is no need to arrange specially shaped objects or ornaments separately, which can suppress the narrowing of the basin of the game medium and prevent the movement of the game medium from becoming monotonous. Therefore, it is possible to prevent the player's interest in games from being lowered. In addition, since the three-dimensional first decorative member is provided, the model of the gaming machine can be specified even when the power is not turned on, and easily installed with other gaming machines when installed in a gaming hall or the like. Can be identified.

  In addition, a game board having a game area can be divided into a game panel, a panel holder, a game area partition frame member, a back unit, and an effect display means, and as a member characterizing the model of the game machine, The game panel where the position of obstacle nails, winning holes, etc. change depending on the model and the back unit where the decorative body is placed are used as replacement parts, and other panel holders, game area partitioning frame members, and effect display means are common parts Therefore, it is possible to provide a gaming machine equipped with a gaming board that can be used for various models by simply exchanging the gaming panel and the back unit.

  The thickness of the panel holder is set to a thickness (18 to 21 mm, preferably about 19 mm) corresponding to the thickness of the wooden plywood part in the conventional game board, and the thickness of the game panel is set to the thickness of the panel holder. It is desirable that the thickness is about 8 to 10 mm, which is about half the thickness. In detail, there are fears that the obstacle nail cannot be satisfactorily held when the thickness is less than 8 mm due to the planting of many obstacle nails in the game panel, and the thickness is more than 10 mm. This is because even if it is thick, the holding of the obstacle nail is not improved, and the weight of the game panel is increased more than necessary. Thereby, the thickness of the panel holder and game panel which consist of transparent plates (resin etc.) can be optimized.

  In addition, since the gaming panel is detachably held on the holding step portion of the panel holder and is not bonded and fixed, it is possible to suppress an increase in the number of assembly steps for assembling the gaming panel and the panel holder. In addition, since the game panel and the panel holder can be easily attached and detached, it is possible to simplify the labor involved in disassembly during assembly and disposal.

  Furthermore, since the gaming panel is held by the holding step of the panel holder, it is possible to fit the gaming panel within the thickness of the panel holder, and the gaming board is divided into a gaming panel, a panel holder, a gaming area partition frame member, etc. Even in a possible configuration, the increase in thickness can be suppressed. Therefore, since the game board can be made to be approximately the same size as the existing one, the parts other than the game board in the gaming machine can be made common with the existing one and placed on the existing production line. It is possible to suppress an increase in manufacturing costs.

  In addition, in the gaming machine, "the outer frame which has a horizontal frame made of a solid flat plate made of wood, and a metal and a vertical frame made of an extruded mold having a predetermined cross-sectional shape, and is assembled into a rectangular shape by the horizontal frame and the vertical frame, A front side wall that is pivotally supported by the outer frame so as to be openable and closable, has a depth dimension substantially the same as the combined thickness of the game area partition frame member and the panel holder, and a stepped portion that comes into contact with the peripheral portion rear surface of the panel holder. A rear side wall extending in a direction substantially parallel to the front side wall from the front side wall and having a depth dimension capable of accommodating a rear protrusion protruding from the panel holder to the rear side. A main body frame having at least a game board installation recess for storing, and fixed to the upper part on the back side of the main body frame, and formed so that the rearward protruding position and the rear end side of the rear side wall are substantially the same position. The game media tank and the game media in the game media tank are on the downstream side. A tank rail member attached to the rear end of the rear side wall of the guiding body frame, a payout unit for paying out game media supplied from the tank rail member, and a storage portion for storing game media paid out from the payout unit And a tray unit provided with a ball removing mechanism for removing the game medium from the storage unit, and a game window disposed above the dish unit so that the player can visually recognize the game area of the game board. A door frame pivotally supported by the frame, a door frame and a main body frame are locked, and a main body frame and an outer frame are locked. It is desirable that the structure further includes a locking device fixed to the outside of the game machine, so that the vertical dimension, the horizontal dimension, and the longitudinal dimension (depth dimension) of the game board installation recess for housing the game board are larger than before. Can be enlarged, and thus the entire game board Even if the display area of the effect image by the effect display means is widened, the basin of the game medium is suppressed from being narrowed so that both the movement of the game medium and the effect image can be enjoyed together. In addition, the game area of the game board can be enlarged to give various movements to the flowing down game media, and large and more three-dimensional movable accessories and decorative bodies (movable decorative bodies) are arranged. Thus, it is possible to provide a gaming machine that can further enhance the effect of the present means and enhance the interest of the player.

Means 2: In the constitution of means 1,
"The decorative body is
At least a part of the first decorative member has translucency,
A first light emission that is disposed on at least a part of the rear side of the first decorative member and has an LED mounted on the surface thereof and moves together with the first decorative member by the moving means. It further includes a decorative substrate ”.

  By the way, when a decorative body is arranged on the rear side of a transparent gaming panel, the gaming panel is provided with a plurality of obstacle nails and accessories, so the gaming panel is transparent. There is a problem that the amount of light transmitted from the front side to the rear side of the panel is reduced, and the decorative body is dark and difficult to see. Therefore, it is conceivable to provide an illuminating device between the game panel and the decorative body and illuminate the decorative body from the front side to prevent the decorative body from becoming difficult to see.

  However, when the lighting device is arranged between the game panel and the decorative body, the dimension in the front-rear direction of the decorative body has to be reduced by the amount of the lighting device due to the limitation on the depth of the gaming machine. By reducing the depth, the three-dimensional effect of the decorative body becomes poor, the impact given to the player is reduced, and the above-described effects of the decorative body may not be obtained.

  In addition, when the lighting device is arranged between the game panel and the decorative body, in other words, when the decorative body is illuminated from the front side, the light from the lighting device is reflected on the surface of the decorative body. If the predetermined object is similar to a non-translucent object, it can be reproduced relatively realistically. However, if the predetermined object is similar to a light-transmitting element, light reflected on the surface can be reproduced. As a result, the surface of the decorative body is emphasized, the transparency is lowered, and it is difficult to reproduce realistically. In addition, since the player sees the light reflected from the surface of the decorative body, the dazzling glare is reduced and the impact of light emission may be lower than when the light from the light source is directly viewed. There is. Therefore, it can be considered to give a gorgeous feeling by plating the surface of the decorative body to increase the reflectance, but in this case, the type of the predetermined object that is the target of the decorative body is limited, and the design There is a problem that the degree of freedom decreases.

  According to the structure of the means 2, after making at least one part of a 1st decoration member translucent in a decoration body, it arrange | positions in the at least one part of the back side of the site | part which has translucency in the 1st decoration member In addition, an LED is mounted on the surface, and further includes a first light emitting decorative substrate that moves together with the first decorative member by the moving means.

  Accordingly, the first decorative member can be decorated with light emission by the first light emitting decorative substrate disposed on the rear side, and the first decorative member capable of light emitting decoration can be moved by the moving means. The LED provided on the light-emitting decorative board can turn on and blink the first decorative member or emit light in various colors, and the player's interest can be further attracted by the light-emitting effect. It is possible to suppress the interest of the person from falling.

  In addition, since the first decorative member can be decorated with the first light emitting decorative substrate, the first decorative member disposed on the rear side of the transparent game panel can be prevented from being dark and difficult to see. It can suppress that the decoration effect by a 1st decoration member is raised more, and a player's interest falls.

  Further, since the first light emitting decorative substrate is provided on the rear side of the first decorative member, the plate-shaped first light emitting decorative substrate is arranged as close to the rear wall as possible. By arranging the first light emitting decorative substrate inside the rear side of the first decorative member, the dimension of the first decorative member in the front-rear direction (depth) can be made as large as possible. The shape of the member can be made more three-dimensional, the player can be entertained by the realistic first decorative member, and the interest can be prevented from deteriorating. Further, by arranging the first light emitting decorative substrate, that is, the LED as far back as possible, the distance between the LED and the front surface of the first decorative member can be made as large as possible, and the light source of the LED that emits light in a spot shape is conspicuous. Can be difficult.

  Further, since the player can visually recognize the light from the LED through the translucent portion of the first decorative member, an illumination device is disposed on the front side of the first decorative member to illuminate the first decorative member. Compared with the case where it does in this way, it becomes possible to make a player recognize a light source (LED) easily, and thereby, the light emission decoration becomes a gorgeous feeling and the impact with respect to a player can be heightened. In addition, since there is no need to increase the reflectance by plating the surface of the first decorative member for the reason described above, the texture of the surface of the first decorative member is not limited, and the predetermined object that is the target of the first decorative member The choices can be widened, the degree of freedom in design can be improved, and the player can be more entertained.

  Further, since the LED emits light on the rear side of the first decorative member, it is possible to suppress the surface shape of the first decorative member from being emphasized. It is possible not only to have a realistic shape but also to reproduce the texture of the predetermined object with the characteristics, and to prevent the entertainment from deteriorating by making the player more entertaining with the more realistic first decorative member it can.

  Further, a multi-faceted prism, grain, or the like may be formed on the surface of the first decorative member, so that even if the first decorative member is formed of a highly transparent material, the first side is viewed from the player side. It is difficult to recognize the member on the rear side of the decorative member, and when the LED is not emitting light, the first light emitting decorative substrate, the LED, etc. arranged on the rear side of the first decorative member can be seen, It is possible to prevent the real feeling of one decorative member from being lowered and the player's interest to be lowered. Note that the “polyhedral prism” is a three-dimensional combination of a plurality of polygonal surfaces whose outer periphery is a triangle or more. For example, it is desirable that the circumference of one surface be 5 mm or more. As a result, the surface of each prism becomes relatively large, so that the reflection and refraction of the light in the entire first decorative member appear to swell greatly, and the surface can be made to be uneven. It is possible to reproduce the icebergs and rocks that were made more realistic.

  The first decorative member may be substantially the same color as the predetermined object, and the emission color of the LED of the first light emitting decorative substrate disposed on the rear side may be substantially the same color or white as the predetermined object. As a result, the first decorative member emits light with a feeling similar to a predetermined object, the first decorative member becomes more realistic, the appeal to the player is increased, and the player's interest is strongly attracted. Can do.

  In addition, the first decorative member disposed on the rear side of the game panel is moved by the moving means and is a decorative body that emits light of a predetermined color by the light emission of the LED, so the first decorative member simply moves. At the same time, the light emission only flashes and the color changes, and it is less difficult to see the game media flowing down the front of the game panel compared to the case where a movie is displayed like a conventional game machine. It is possible to prevent the player's interest from deteriorating due to difficulty in viewing the game medium.

  Further, a diffusing lens member that diffuses light from the LED may be disposed between the first decorative member and the first light emitting decorative substrate, so that the light from the LED of the first light emitting decorative substrate is transmitted. Since it is diffused by the diffusing lens member, the distance between the front surface of the first decorative member and the first light emitting decorative substrate cannot be taken, and the light of the LED that emits light in a substantially dot shape has the translucency of the first decorative member. It can be visually recognized through the portion, the light source can be recognized, and the real feeling of the first decorative member can be prevented from being lowered. Moreover, since the light of the LED which emits light in a substantially dot shape can be diffused by the diffusing lens member, it is possible to make it difficult to recognize the LED even if the thickness of the first decorative member is thin. That is, the first decorative member having a small thickness can be decorated with good light emission, so that it is easy to secure a space for arranging the moving means on the rear side of the first light emitting decorative substrate, and the thin thickness is small. Even a predetermined object can be satisfactorily expressed as the first decorative member, and the degree of freedom of design of the decorative body can be increased to provide a gaming machine that can further attract the player's interest.

Means 3: In the constitution of means 1 or means 2,
"The decorative body is
An outer shape imitating a predetermined object, at least a part of which is translucent, disposed on the rear side of the first decorative member, and on the player side as the first decorative member is moved by the moving means A second decorative member that is visible or invisible from,
It further includes a second light emitting decorative substrate disposed on the rear side of the second decorative member and having a plurality of LEDs mounted on the surface thereof ”.

  According to the configuration of the means 3, the decorative body has an outer shape imitating a predetermined object, and at least part of the decorative body is translucent and disposed behind the first decorative member. A second decorative member that is visible or invisible from the player side as the player moves, and a second light emitting decorative substrate that is disposed on the rear side of the second decorative member and has a plurality of LEDs mounted thereon. It is a thing.

  As a result, the second decorative member appears or hides as the first decorative member is moved by the moving means, so that the shape decorative aspect of the game board can be greatly changed, and the player's interest Can be more attracted, and it is possible to give a sense of expectation to the game by changing the decoration mode, and it is possible to suppress a decrease in the interest of the player due to the sense of expectation.

  Further, the color of the second decorative member or the light emission color of the second decorative member may be a color different from that of the first decorative member, so that the second different color is generated by the movement of the first decorative member by the moving means. The decorative member will appear, and at first glance, the player can recognize that the decoration mode of the decorative body has changed, and the player's interest can be strongly attracted.

  Note that the second decorative member is disposed on the rear side of the first decorative member, and the second decorative member and the second light emitting decorative substrate are likely to be greatly restricted in the front-rear direction dimension. It is desirable that the second decorative member is a diffusing lens member capable of widely diffusing light from the LED of the second light emitting decorative member, whereby the second decorative member is made to emit light in a good state. It is possible to improve the appearance by suppressing the second light emitting decorative substrate, the LED, and the like arranged on the rear side of the second decorative member from being clearly visible from the player side.

Means 4: In the configuration of means 3,
"The moving means is
The first decorative member is moved in a direction substantially along the game board surface, and at the same time, the second decorative member is moved in the front-rear direction.

  According to the configuration of the means 4, the moving means moves the first decorative member in the direction substantially along the game board surface and simultaneously moves the second decorative member in the front-rear direction.

  As a result, when the first decorative member moves in the direction along the game board surface, the second decorative member arranged thereafter appears while moving in the front-rear direction, and the appearance of the second decorative member also moves. It is possible to entertain the movement of the first decorative member and the second decorative member, and to prevent the player's interest from deteriorating.

  Further, since the first decorative member and the second decorative member can be moved by one moving means, it is possible to reduce the space required for the moving means as compared with the case where the moving means is provided respectively. It is possible to relatively widen the space for the first decorative member and the second decorative member, and as the first decorative member and the second decorative member have a more three-dimensional effect, the player's interest is strongly attracted. It can be.

Means 5: In any one configuration from means 1 to means 4,
The moving means is
A motor having a rotating shaft;
A pinion gear that rotates with the rotating shaft of the motor;
A rack gear that meshes with the pinion gear; and a slide member that moves at least the first decorative member as the rack gear moves; and a base member that slidably holds the slide member. It is characterized by.

  By the way, when a solenoid is used as the moving means, because of its structure, the advance / retreat position of the plunger is only a protruding position or an immersion position, and it is difficult to stop the plunger at an arbitrary position such as an intermediate position. At the same time, it is difficult to change the moving speed. In addition, if the crank is rotated by a motor or the like as the moving means, and the sliding distance is increased, the rotation radius of the crank also increases, the moving means becomes larger, and the space is secured. There is a problem that makes it hard.

  According to the configuration of the means 5, the moving means includes a motor having a rotation shaft, a pinion gear that rotates together with the rotation shaft, a rack member that meshes with the pinion gear, a slide member that moves at least the first decorative member, and a slide member. And a base member that is slidably held.

A lock that locks the door frame and the main body frame, and locks the main body frame and the outer frame, and is fixed to the outside of the front side wall on the side opposite to the side on which the main body frame is pivotally supported. And a device ”.

  By the way, by displaying a larger effect image, it is conceivable to increase the power of the displayed effect image and enhance the interest of the player. However, in this case, if the effect image displayed in the game area is enlarged, the basin in which the game medium flows relatively narrows, the movement of the game medium decreases, and the movement becomes monotonous. Depending on the player, there is a risk that the interest in the game will be reduced. Conversely, if the basin where the game medium flows down is widened in order to entertain the movement of the game medium, the display area for displaying the effect image becomes relatively small, and the force of the effect image displayed decreases. At the same time, it is difficult to see the effect image, and the interest of the player in the game may be reduced. Therefore, by increasing the size of the game board itself, even if the display area of the effect image is widened, the basin of the game medium is suppressed from being narrowed so that both the movement of the game medium and the effect image can be enjoyed together. It is possible to do.

  However, in the conventional gaming machine, because the four frames (vertical frame and horizontal frame) constituting the outer frame for installation and fixing to the island facilities such as game halls are all the same thick wooden board, The dimensions of the game board installation recess that stores the game board of the main body frame that is pivotally supported with respect to the inside of the outer frame can be reduced by the thickness of the vertical frame in the outer frame. There is a problem that the game board cannot be made larger.

  Moreover, in the conventional gaming machine, the depth of the game board installation recess of the main body frame is not deep in all areas, but only a part is deep and shallow in other places. As described above, a game board provided with a large effect display device having a rear projecting portion not only in the center part on the back side of the game board but also in the peripheral part, a light-emitting decorative body on the rear side of the panel holder as described above, etc. There is a problem that it may not be possible to attach a game board or the like equipped with a back unit or the like having a.

  Further, in the conventional gaming machine, the door frame that covers the front side of the main body frame, or two storage trays for storing game media on the player side are provided below the door frame. It is necessary to design the position of the lower side of the gaming window for making the game area visible to some extent above the necessity to provide the two storage trays. As a result, the vertical dimension of the game board installation recess There was a problem that it was also restricted.

  Thus, in conventional gaming machines, there are many elements that limit the dimensions in the vertical direction, the horizontal direction, and the depth direction of the game board installation recess formed in the main body frame, so the game board installed in the game board installation recess The size of the game board was also limited, and it was difficult to increase the size of the game board.

  According to the configuration of the means 10, the gaming machine has a wooden and solid flat plate-like horizontal frame and a vertical frame made of metal and an extruded mold having a predetermined cross-sectional shape, and is assembled into a rectangular shape by the horizontal frame and the vertical frame. An outer frame, a front side wall that is pivotally supported by the outer frame so as to be openable and closable, and has a depth dimension substantially the same as the combined thickness of the game area partition frame member and the panel holder, and a stepped portion that comes into contact with the peripheral portion rear surface of the panel holder And a rear side wall extending in parallel to the front side wall from the front side wall and having a depth dimension capable of accommodating a rear protrusion protruding rearward from the panel holder. The main body frame having at least a game board installation recess for storing the game board, and the rear side wall of the main body frame are fixed to the upper part on the back side so that the rearward protruding position and the rear edge of the rear side wall are substantially the same position. A game medium tank formed in the game medium and a game in the game medium tank. A tank rail member that guides the medium downstream and is attached to the rear end of the rear side wall of the main body frame, a payout unit for paying out game media supplied from the tank rail member, and a game medium paid out from the payout unit A tray unit having a storage unit for storing the game and a ball removing mechanism for removing a game medium from the storage unit, and a game window arranged above the plate unit so that a player can visually recognize a game area of the game board The door frame is pivotally supported by the main body frame so as to be opened and closed, the door frame and the main body frame are locked, and the main body frame and the outer frame are locked. And a locking device fixed to the outside of the side front side wall.

  As a result, the vertical frames arranged on the left and right sides of the outer frame are formed of a metal extrusion mold material, so the size in the left-right direction as viewed from the front of the front side wall of the main body frame facing the inside of the vertical frame is increased. It is possible to widen the left and right dimensions of the game board mounting recess of the main body frame, and thus the left and right dimensions of the game board can be increased, which has a wider game area than before. The game board can strongly attract the player's interest, and the game media can be enjoyed by giving various movements to the game media flowing down through a wide game area. It is possible to effectively prevent a player's interest from being lowered by displaying a powerful effect image.

  In addition, the rearward projecting amount of all parts of the rear side wall of the main body frame is substantially the same position as the rear end side of the storage portion storing the game medium balls of the game medium tank fixed to the upper part on the back side of the main body frame. It is formed to become. That is, even if the rear protruding portion such as the back unit attached to the back surface of the panel holder in the game board protrudes over the peripheral portion of the game board, the rear side wall that accommodates the rear protruding portion such as the back unit is a gaming machine. Since it is formed with substantially the same size as the game medium tank that protrudes greatly on the rear surface side, a game board having a large dimension in the depth direction can be easily stored in the game board installation recess of the main body frame. In other words, since the depth dimension of the game board installation recess in the main body frame can be increased, the rear dimension of the panel holder in the game board can be increased, and the internal space of the back box of the back unit can be increased. It is possible to provide a gaming machine that can entertain a player and enhance the interest of the player by arranging more three-dimensional decorations and accessories, or arranging a larger effect display means.

  Furthermore, a tank rail member for guiding the game medium from the game medium tank is attached to the rear end of the rear side wall of the main body frame, and the tank rail member or the like does not protrude inside the rear side wall. The space surrounded by the wall can be used as a space for storing the rear protrusions such as the back unit protruding rearward from the panel holder, and the game board can be well stored in the game board installation recess. .

  In addition, since only one tray unit for storing game media paid out from the payout unit is provided on the front surface of the door frame, it is compared with a conventional game machine having two storage trays (dish units). Since the vertical dimension of the gaming window of the door frame can be increased, the gaming area of the gaming board can be reliably visually recognized even when the gaming board with the larger vertical dimension is attached to the main body frame. . In other words, the vertical dimension of the gaming window in the door frame can be made larger than that of the conventional gaming machine, so that the vertical dimension of the gaming board can also be increased, and the gaming area of the gaming board can be enlarged to flow down. By giving various movements to the medium or arranging a large movable accessory or decorative body (movable decorative body) or the like, it is possible to make the gaming machine more entertaining and entertaining.

  Furthermore, since the depth of the game board installation recess can be increased, the depth of the rear side from the panel holder, that is, the back unit can be increased. As a result, the first decorative member having a large depth can be obtained, or the distance between the first decorative member and the first light emitting decorative substrate can be increased, and a more realistic first decorative member (decorated) that more closely resembles a predetermined object. Body) can be easily realized, and it is possible to provide a gaming machine that can attract the player's interest and prevent the interest from deteriorating.

[Outer frame]
The outer frame 2 will be described mainly with reference to FIGS. 9 to 13. 9 is a front perspective view of the outer frame 2, FIG. 10 is an exploded perspective view as seen from the front of the outer frame 2, FIG. 11 is a front view of the outer frame 2, and FIG. FIG. 13 is a rear view of the outer frame 2, and FIG. 13 is a sectional view taken along line BB in FIG. 11A, a sectional view taken along line CC in FIG. 13A, and a sectional view taken along line DD. , E-E sectional view (D).

  9 and 10, the outer frame 2 according to the present embodiment is a connection for connecting the upper and lower upper frame plates 10 and 11 and the left and right side frame plates 12 and 13 at their respective ends. It is assembled in a square shape by connecting with the member 19. Specifically, the connecting member 19 is formed in a podium shape with a step between the center and the left and right, and the protruding center part is an engagement notch formed at the center of both ends of the upper frame plate 10 and the lower frame plate 11. The side frame plates 12, 13 are fitted to the side surfaces of the left and right portions which are fitted to the portion 20, and the back surface of the upper frame plate 10 and the upper surface of the lower frame plate 11 are in contact with the planes of the left and right portions lowered one step. The inner surface of the is in contact.

  The upper frame plate 10 and the lower frame plate 11 in the present embodiment correspond to the horizontal frame of the present invention, and the left and right side frame plates 12 and 13 of the present example correspond to the vertical frame of the present invention. Yes.

  In that state, the insertion hole 21 and the left and right sides of the connecting member 19 are lowered by one step on both sides of the engagement notch 20 of the upper frame plate 10 and on both sides of the engagement notch 20 of the lower frame plate 11. A plurality of (two in the illustrated case) connecting holes 22 (shown on the connecting member 19 that connects the upper frame plate 10 and the side frame plate 12 in FIG. Are also fixed by a plurality of (two in the illustrated case) connecting screws 23 from above or below, and further, a plurality ( Two (in the illustrated case) mounting holes 24 and a plurality of (three in the illustrated case) connecting holes 25 formed on the side surfaces of the left and right portions of the connecting member 19 that are lowered by one step are aligned to form a plurality (from the lateral outer side). The upper and lower upper frame plates 10 and 10 are fixed by fastening with three connecting screws 26 and 27 in the case of illustration. A lower frame plate 11 and the left and right side frame plates 12 and 13 is firmly coupled and fixed. However, of the three connecting screws 26 and 27, one connecting screw 27 does not connect the side frame plates 12 and 13 and the connecting member 19 but connects the upper frame plate 10 and the lower frame plate 11. The member 19 is directly connected from the side.

  Of the upper frame plate 10 and the lower frame plate 11 and the side frame plates 12 and 13 constituting the outer frame 2, the upper frame plate 10 and the lower frame plate 11 are made of the same wood as in the prior art, and the side frame plates 12 and 13. Is made of an extruded plate of a lightweight metal, for example, an aluminum alloy. The reason why the upper frame plate 10 and the lower frame plate 11 are made of the same wood as before is that when the pachinko machine 1 is installed on an island lined up in a game hall, a predetermined angle is given to the vertical plane of the island. Although it is necessary to perform a fixing operation, such an operation is performed by hitting the nail to the upper frame plate 10 and the lower frame plate 11 and the island, so that it is easy to hit the nail. On the other hand, the reason why the side frame plates 12 and 13 are made of an aluminum alloy extruded plate is that the thickness of the side frame plates 12 and 13 can be reduced while maintaining the strength as compared with the conventional wood. The lateral width when viewed from the front of the side walls 540 to 543 (see FIG. 23) of the main body frame 3 adjacent to the main frame 3 can be increased. This is because the game board 4 having a large lateral dimension can be mounted on the main body frame 3, and as a result, the game area 605 of the game board 4 can be formed larger. However, if the side frame plates 12 and 13 are made of an aluminum alloy flat plate, sufficient rigidity cannot be secured. Therefore, as shown in FIG. 13C, the side frame plate 12 (the side frame plate 13 has the same structure). .) Is formed by drawing so that the thickness h1 of the rear portion is increased by forming a space portion 28 (the space portion 28 of the side frame plate 13 is shown in FIG. 12) opened rearward by a rib. Yes. Of course, the wall thickness h1 is the same as or slightly smaller than the wall thickness of the conventional wood.

  Further, as shown in FIGS. 13B and 13D, in the front of the space portion 28 of the side frame plate 12, a groove portion 29 (on the side where one portion of the left and right portions lowered by one step of the connecting member 19 is fitted. 9 is formed in the groove 29 of the frame plate 13. From the groove 29 to the front end of the side frame plate 12, as shown in FIGS. 13B to 13D, a flat plate shape with which the other side of the left and right portions whose inner side surfaces are lowered by one step is brought into contact. However, a shallow concave portion for reducing material is formed in the flat plate portion. Further, on the opposite surface (outer surface) where the groove 29 is formed, as shown in FIGS. 9 and 13B, the recessed portion 30 (side) into which the hanging piece 53 of the upper support metal fitting 45 is inserted.

FIG. 18 is an exploded perspective view seen from the front of the door frame 5, and FIG. 19 is an exploded perspective view seen from the back of the door frame 5.

  As shown in FIGS. 14, 15, 18, and 19, the door frame 5 has a vertically long hexagonal gaming window 101 formed on the upper part of a door frame main body 100 that is formed in a square shape. A door lens unit 120 is attached around the front surface, a plate unit 300 is provided on the door frame main body 100 on the front surface of the plate-like portion below the game window 101, and a handle is provided on one side (open side) of the plate unit 300. An operation handle portion 461 of the device 460 is fixedly projected. Further, a reinforcing sheet metal 210 is fixed around the gaming window 101 on the back surface of the door frame main body 100, and a glass unit 250 is attached so as to close the gaming window 101, and a plate-like portion below the gaming window 101. The joint unit 480, the mounting base 280, and the frame decoration relay board 290 corresponding to the operation handle portion 461 are attached to the back surface of the frame. A security cover 270 having a security function is also attached to the bottom of the back surface of the glass unit 250. Hereinafter, a more detailed structure of each of the above constituent members constituting the door plate 5 will be described.

<Door frame body>
As shown in FIGS. 18 and 19, the door frame main body 100 is formed in a frame shape with a synthetic resin, and as described above, the vertically long hexagonal gaming window 101 is formed on the upper portion, and the lower side of the gaming window 101 is It is a plate-like part. A circular speaker opening 102 that penetrates a speaker 163, which will be described later, is formed on the upper left and right of the gaming window 101, and a stopper 254 of a glass unit 250, which will be described later, is locked below the speaker opening 102. A stop lever 108 (see FIG. 15) is rotatably provided. Note that the gaming window 101 according to the present embodiment is attached with the gaming board 4 having larger vertical and horizontal dimensions than conventional gaming windows 101, so the vertical and horizontal dimensions of the gaming window 101 are also increased. Yes. For this reason, the shape of the door frame lens unit 120, which will be described later, is greatly different from that generally known in the art.

  On the other hand, in the plate-like portion below the game window 101, a prize ball passage port 103 through which the prize ball communication rod 451 of the dish unit 300 passes is opened at the upper part on the pivot support side. A lid opening 105 for detaching 406 is opened, and a ball feeding opening 104 for mounting the ball feeding unit 287 is opened at a position adjacent to the opening side of the lid opening 105. Further, a lock hole 106 for allowing the cylinder lock 1010 to pass therethrough is opened closer to the open side.

  Also, a joint unit mounting recess 107 for attaching the joint unit 480 is formed on the back side of the plate-like portion below the ball feed opening 104, and glass is formed on the lower left and right sides of the game window 101 on the back side of the lower plate-like portion. An attachment receiving piece (not shown) for engaging the engaging protrusion 255 of the unit 250 is formed, and an attachment elastic piece 273 (to be described later) of the security cover 270 is attached to the side of the engagement receiving piece. An opening 110 is formed. In addition, an engagement protrusion 111 is formed in the center of the front surface of the plate-like portion so as to be inserted into a guide hole 456 (see FIG. 16) of the dish unit 300 described later. Further, the lower side of the door frame main body 100 is a door frame protruding piece 112 protruding rearward, and as will be described later, the door frame protruding piece 112 and engagement grooves 584 and 585 formed in the main body frame 3 Constitutes the outer ridge and the engaging portion at the lower side portion of the door frame 5 and the main body frame 3.

<Door lens unit>
Next, the structure of the door lens unit 120 attached to the upper part on the front side of the door frame main body 100 will be described. The door lens unit 120 includes a reflector having a front surface as a reflection surface, a cold cathode tube and an LED substrate attached to the front and inside of the reflector, a light-transmissive lens cover 150 covering the front of the reflector, and the lens cover 150. And a lens base body 121 serving as a base of the lens cover 150.

  In the lens cover 150, the upper lens cover portion 151 and the side lens cover portions 156 and 157 in the lens base body 121 are formed of a transparent resin. And since the opening dimension of the game window 101 formed in the door frame main body 100 is formed larger than before, as described above, the dimension between the outer periphery of the door frame main body 100 and the inner periphery of the game window 101. In other words, since the dimensions for attaching the lens cover 150 (particularly the dimensions of the left and right sides) are narrow, the lens cover 150 in this embodiment includes the upper lens cover 151 and the side lens cover. All of the maximum forward projecting portions of the portions 156 and 157 have a wedge-shaped cross section in which the projecting size projecting forward is larger than the base size (the width size of the portion contacting the door frame body 100). ing. More specifically, the upper lens cover portion 151 and the side lens cover portions 156 and 157 are both formed as a white lens portion with a wedge-shaped front bulging portion formed of a synthetic resin, and the lower end portion of the white lens portion. A red lens portion formed of synthetic resin with different coloring is connected to the inside of the gaming window 101 to be bordered.

  By the way, the upper lens cover portion 151 is formed in a wedge shape in a cross section with a hollow inside and opened at the rear, and is formed in a boomerang shape in a plan view. It is formed so that the distance between the cathode tube and the inner surface of the wedge-shaped tip is reduced. An opaque leading molding member 154 colored in silver is fixed to the outer side of the wedge-shaped front end portion of the upper lens cover portion 151, and the front bulging surface having a wedge-shaped cross section corresponding to almost the entire upper lens cover portion 151 is formed. Illuminated with an upper cold cathode tube. The side lens cover portions 156 and 157 are similar to the upper lens cover portion 151 in that the inside is hollow and the rear is open and formed in a wedge shape in cross section. The distance between the side cold cathode fluorescent tube formed in a straight line and the inner surface of the wedge-shaped tip is smaller than that of the lens cover 151 and is formed in a boomerang shape having a gentle curve as a whole. Is formed to be close.

  Moreover, in this embodiment, the reason why the cold cathode tube is used as the illumination means for decorating the periphery of the front surface of the door frame 5 is as follows. When decorating the periphery of the front surface of the door frame 5, there is a restriction that the distance between the light source and the lens cover disposed on the front surface of the light source cannot be made too large. This restriction is because the door frame 5 is always opened and closed, and if the protrusion amount is made too large, there is a possibility that the operation at the time of opening may be hindered. Thus, in a situation where the distance between the light source and the lens cover is not so large, the light decoration visible through the lens cover is continuous when the lamp or LED is scattered as the light source as in the past. The light decoration is not visible, but can only be seen as a spotted pattern with strong and weak parts. On the other hand, when a continuous cold cathode tube is used as a light emission source as in this embodiment, even if the distance between the cold cathode tube and the lens cover 150 is short, the light decoration visible through the lens cover 150 is A beautiful light decoration in a continuous state is visible. For this reason, since the area surrounding the game board 4 is bordered by a continuous beautiful light decoration, a decoration effect not found in conventional pachinko gaming machines can be achieved. If the distance between the light source and the lens cover can be kept to some extent, light should diffuse and illuminate the entire area of the lens cover with little intensity even if scattered light sources such as LEDs are used. Can do.

  Further, a decorative member attachment region 184 is formed below the side lens cover portions 156 and 157 of the lens cover 150, and the decorative member 185 is attached to the decorative member attachment region 184. The decorative member 185 has a shape similar to the speaker cover 165 described above, and when the lens cover 150 is attached to the surface of the door frame main body 100, the impression that the upper left and right sides and the lower left and right sides of the lens cover 150 are balanced. It is attached to give Note that the speaker cover 165 and the decorative member 185 described above do not simply cover the front of the speaker 163 or decorate the lower part of the lens cover 150 as described above, but the periphery thereof is light-decorated with LEDs. It has a structure.

  As described above in detail, the speaker cover 165 and the decorative member 185 according to the present embodiment have four corners in the region surrounding the game window 101 of the door frame 5 apart from the light decoration by the cold cathode tube and the LED substrate described above. Since it is configured so as to be intensively decorated with light, the entire circumference except for the lower side of the gaming window 101 is not casually decorated with light, but can be made with a light decoration with strength and weakness. In particular, the light decoration on the upper left and right sides of the door frame 5 has a tendency that only a speaker is conventionally arranged, and the light decoration around the speaker is not performed. However, by configuring as in the present embodiment, the entire periphery except the lower side of the gaming window 101 can be effectively decorated with light.

<Reinforcing sheet metal>
The door lens unit 120 described above is attached to the front side of the door frame main body 100, and the dish unit 300 is attached below the door lens unit 120. Here, before describing the structure of the dish unit 300, the reinforcing sheet metal 210, the glass unit 250, the security cover 270, the mounting base 280, the frame decoration relay board 290, and the handle device 460 attached to the back side of the door frame main body 100 will be described. A description will be made sequentially. First, the reinforcing sheet metal 210 will be described mainly with reference to FIGS. 18, 19 and 15 to 17.

  As shown in FIGS. 18 and 19, the reinforcing sheet metal 210 is attached along the upper side reinforcing sheet metal 211 that is attached along the rear side of the upper side of the door frame main body 100 and the rear side of the side of the shaft support side of the door frame main body 100. A pivot-side reinforcing sheet metal 212, an open-side reinforcing sheet metal 213 that is attached along the back of the open side of the door frame body 100, and a lower reinforcing sheet metal that is attached along the back of the lower side of the gaming window 101 of the door frame body 100. 214 are fastened with screws or the like to form a square shape.

  As shown in FIG. 18, an upper shaft support portion 218 having a shaft pin 219 slidably provided on the upper surface of the upper and lower ends of the shaft support side reinforcing sheet metal 212 and a shaft pin 221 ( And a lower shaft support portion 220 having a structure (see FIG. 15). The upper and lower shaft pins 219 and 221 are pivotally supported by an upper shaft bracket 503 and a lower shaft bracket 509 formed on the upper and lower sides of the body frame 3, so that the door frame 5 is attached to the body frame 3. It can be opened and closed freely.

  The lower reinforcing sheet metal 214 has a predetermined width and is formed to have a length substantially the same as the width dimension of the door frame main body 100, and the lower long side edge of the both long side edges is bent rearward. Although it becomes the lower bending protrusion piece 229, and both sides of the upper long side edge are the upper bending protrusion pieces 230 bent backward, The sandwiched portion is a vertical bent protrusion 231 extending in the vertical direction. The amount of protrusion of the lower bent protrusion 229 is not so large, and the lower bent protrusion 229 does not engage with the groove or the recess to form the uneven engagement, but is formed to increase the strength. On the other hand, the amount of protrusion of the upper bent protrusion 230 on both sides is slightly larger than the amount of protrusion of the lower bent protrusion 229, and somewhat prevents intrusion of unauthorized tools from below, but rather the lower reinforcement in the present embodiment. The most characteristic configuration of the sheet metal 214 is a vertical bent protrusion 231.

  The vertical bent protrusion 231 is formed in a concave shape so that its upper edge shape matches the lower end shape of the unit frame 251 of the glass unit 250 described later, and when the glass unit 250 is fixed to the back surface side of the door frame 5 Further, the upper end piece of the vertical bent protruding piece 231 is adapted to engage with an engaging groove 261 formed along the outer periphery of substantially the center in the width direction of the unit frame 251 of the glass unit 250 (see FIG. 17). ). The lower reinforcing sheet metal 214 is formed with a prize ball passage port covering portion 228 that protects the outer periphery excluding the bottom surface of the prize ball passage port 103 formed in the door frame main body 100.

<Glass unit (transparent plate unit)>
Next, the glass unit 250 as a transparent plate unit attached to the back surface of the door frame 5 will be described.

Here, the upper shaft support bracket 503 and the lower shaft support bracket 509 will be described with reference to FIGS. 25 and 27. The upper shaft support fitting 503 has a mounting portion on the back surface of the main body frame main body 500, and its upper end protrudes forward. A shaft support pin 504 is erected and fixed on the upper surface protruding forward, and the shaft support pin 504 A door shaft support hole 505 is formed on the side. On the other hand, the lower shaft support 509 has a mounting portion on the back surface of the main body frame main body 500, and two support plates 506 and 507 are integrally projected on the lower end side and slightly on the upper side. The lower support plate 506 constitutes a frame support plate 506 for supporting the main body frame 3 on the lower support fitting 66 of the outer frame 2, and the upper support plate 507 is provided on the door frame 5. A door support plate 507 for supporting the lower shaft support portion 220 on the main body frame 3 is configured. For this reason, a shaft support hole (not shown) for inserting the support protrusion 68 of the lower support fitting 66 of the outer frame 2 is formed in the frame support plate 506, and the door support plate 507 is provided with the lower shaft support portion 220 of the door frame 5. A shaft support hole 508 for inserting the projecting shaft pin 221 is formed.

  By the way, the main body frame main body 500 is formed in a rectangular shape when viewed from the front, and about 3/4 of the upper part thereof is a game board installation recess 510 (see FIG. 25) for installing the game board 4. A slightly recessed area below the game board installation recess 510 is a plate portion 511. In addition, the front upper side portion and the front open side portion on the front side surrounding the game board installation recess 510 are formed with a predetermined width so as to face the rear surface of the door frame 5, An upper crime prevention double groove 581 is formed by a protrusion protruding in parallel with the lateral direction, and a side crime prevention groove 582 is formed on the outer side and on the inner side of the front opening side edge on the right side when viewed from the front. A security recess 583 is formed which is formed by an inner wall having an inclined surface that is connected to the first side wall 540 at the rear end. Unlike the side part, it is not formed so as to have a predetermined width that faces the back surface of the door frame 5, but the front shaft support side part of the main body frame main body 500 is more forward than the front upper side part or the front open side part. The shaft support side portion 587 has a large protrusion amount.

  More specifically, the upper crime prevention double groove 581 formed on the upper side of the front surface is bent toward the rear with both long side ends of the upper reinforcing sheet metal 211 attached and fixed to the rear side of the upper side of the door frame 5.

Further, the above-described structure can prevent an illegal act of inserting a fraudulent tool such as a piano wire through the gap between the contact surfaces of the door frame 5 and the main body frame 3, and in particular, the open side where the fraudulent act is most likely to be performed. It has a structure that can prevent fraud at the side and then at the upper side where fraud is likely to be performed. Of course, the prevention of fraud by the contact between the support-side reinforcing sheet metal 212 on the support side and the support-side L-shaped bent protrusion 217 also functions sufficiently, but in many cases the support side is sturdy. Since the main body frame 3 and the door frame 5 are connected to each other by the support brackets 45 and 66 and the shaft support brackets 503 and 509, the space between the main body frame 3 and the door frame 5 is larger than that of the upper side and the open side. It is difficult to make a gap. For this reason, in this embodiment, not a double crime prevention structure but a single crime prevention structure. These points will be described in detail later.

  In addition to the configuration described above, the front upper side, front open side, and front pivot side on the front side surrounding the game board installation recess 510 are arranged on the upper, middle, and lower sides of the front open side.

Further, the portion adjacent to the ball-opening connection opening 530 is horizontal so that a full unit mounting portion 531 for mounting a full unit 900 (see FIG. 25), which will be described in detail later, is orthogonal to the plate portion 511. A unit engagement groove 532 that engages with the engagement piece 924 (see FIG. 57) of the full unit 900 is formed in the front portion of the full unit mounting portion 531. Further, as shown in FIG. 25, an outlet for blocking a prize ball discharged from the outlet 921 of the full tank unit 900 when the door frame 5 is opened is provided on the front surface of the plate part 511 in front of the full unit mounting part 531. An opening / closing device 579 is provided. Although the outlet opening / closing device 579 is not described in detail, when the door frame 5 is closed, the opening / closing plate is lowered by a lever that contacts the back surface of the door frame 5, but the door plate 5 is opened. Then, the contact with the lever disappears, so that the opening / closing plate rises and closes the outlet 921. For this reason, even when the door frame 5 is opened, the prize balls stored in the full tank unit 900 do not fall down from the outlet 921. Also, as shown in FIG. 25, a fastening hole penetrating vertically in a position corresponding to the upper part of the launching portion of the firing rail 515 in the game board mounting portion 512 formed along the upper end side of the plate portion 511. 533 is formed, and a fastening link 534 for holding the fastening band 619 is passed to the front portion of the fastening hole 533.

The first side wall 540 to the fourth side wall 543 are formed such that the upper side and the right side (sides on the shaft support side) are straightly extended backward with a step when viewed from the rear side, whereas the left side ( The open side is formed in a stepped shape (see FIG. 29) that is inclined inwardly from the first side wall 540 toward the fourth side wall 543. This is because the rear end of the fourth side wall 543 is opened when the main body frame 3 is opened when the first side wall 540 to the fourth side wall 543 on the left side (side on the open side) are straightly formed rearward. May be in contact with the inner surface of the side frame plate 13 of the outer frame 2 so that it cannot be opened smoothly. Therefore, the first side wall surface 540 to the fourth side wall 543 on the open side can be smoothly opened by inclining inside. It is something that can be done. At the same time, the lock device 1000 is attached along the first side wall 540 on the open side, and the attachment is performed using a lock attachment hole 547 (see FIG. 63) provided in the rear end side of the first side wall 540. Therefore, in order to form the lock mounting hole 547, the fourth side wall 543 is formed in an inclined step shape from the first side wall 540 on the open side. Furthermore, as for the step size of the first side wall 540 to the fourth side wall 543, the step between the first side wall 540 and the second side wall 541 needs to be in contact with the periphery of the back surface of the game board 4 described later. For this reason, it is formed with a somewhat large step, but the other steps are extremely small steps. Of course, the second side wall 541 to the fourth side wall 543 may be formed continuously without forming a step.

  As shown in FIG. 23, the side walls 540 to 543 are formed to have depth width dimensions d1, d2, d3, and d4, respectively. In this embodiment, d1 + d2 + d3 + d4 = about 135 mm. . In particular, the width dimension d1 of the first side wall 540 corresponds to the thickness of the game board 4, and the game board is formed in the space formed by the remaining second side wall 541, third side wall 542, and fourth side wall 543. The rear projecting portions of various gaming devices provided in 4 are accommodated. In other words, the first side wall 540 constitutes a front side wall having a depth dimension substantially the same as the thickness of the game board 4, and the second side wall 541 to the fourth side wall 543 are in contact with the back of the peripheral part of the game board 4. A rear side wall that has a stepped portion that contacts the rear side wall of the gaming device 4 that extends from the first side wall 540 toward the rear substantially in parallel with the first side wall 540 and is provided on the game board 4.

It is like that. Therefore, the width of the projecting width toward the inside of the pivot support side rear wall 546 is sufficient if the ball passage unit 770 and the prize ball unit 800 are wide enough to be attached. Further, the front surface of the upper rear wall 545 has a flat plate shape (see FIG. 21), and a tank rail member 740, which will be described later, is attached to the rear surface thereof. Therefore, it is sufficient for the projecting width to the inside of the upper rear wall 545 if there is a height width dimension of the tank rail member 740 attached in an inclined manner. Furthermore, the front surface of the open-side rear wall 544 has a flat plate shape (see FIG. 21), and a cover body support cylinder portion 575 that pivotally supports a cover body 1250 described later is formed on the rear surface. Accordingly, it is sufficient that the width of the projecting width toward the inside of the open-side rear wall 544 is a width that forms the cover body support cylinder 575.

  As described above, the front surfaces of the open-side rear wall 544, the upper rear wall 545, and the pivot-side rear wall 546 that project inward from the rear end side of the fourth side wall 543 are formed in a flat plate shape. Since the flat plate portion corresponds to the peripheral portion of the game board 4, as described above, the second side wall 541, the third side wall 542, and the fourth side wall to the position corresponding to the peripheral portion of the game board 4. Since the size of the space formed by 543 is ensured, for example, even in the case where a gaming device in which the liquid crystal display screen occupies almost the entire area of the gaming board 4 is attached, The rear projecting portion can be easily stored. Note that the insides of the open-side rear wall 544, the upper rear wall 545, and the pivot support-side rear wall 546 form a rear opening 580 so that the rear opening 580 can be opened and closed by a cover body 1250 described later. It has become.

  In addition, the 1st side wall 540 in this embodiment is corresponded to the front side wall of this invention, and the 2nd side wall of this example, the 3rd side wall, and the 4th side wall are the back side wall of this invention. It corresponds.

  Next, a more detailed configuration of the game board mounting recess 510 will be described. As described above, the door hook hole 549 through which the door frame hook portion 1041 of the lock device 1000 passes is formed on the open side plane portion. The middle and lower three places are opened, and the upper and lower door hook holes 549 are further above, below, and below, the lock locking holes 548 with which the locking protrusions 1004 described later of the locking device 1000 are engaged (see FIG. 22).

Further, the lock device 1000 is attached along the first side wall 540 on the open side, and a lock attachment hole 547 (see FIG. 22) for performing the attachment with a screw is an upper part of the rear end portion of the first side wall 540. It is formed in the middle. Note that the locking device 1000 is attached not only by the upper and middle screws but also by a screw fixing portion 1003 formed in a lock mounting piece 1008 described later and a lock mounting hole formed in the vicinity of the cylinder lock through hole 526. The lower part of the lock device 1000 can also be attached by fixing 547 to 547 with screws.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 24, on the left and right in front of the upper side of the first side wall 540, when the main body frame 3 is closed with respect to the outer frame 2, the inner peripheral surface of the upper frame plate 10 of the outer frame 2 A guide arc protrusion 552 that abuts is provided, and a relief recess 551 that communicates with a notch 729 of a prize ball tank 720, which will be described later, is formed at the center of the rear end side of the first side wall 540. A tank mounting groove 550 is formed on a vertical surface connected to the side wall 541. When the mounting flange 733 of the prize ball tank 720 is attached to the tank attachment groove 550, the notch 729 of the prize ball tank 720 communicates with the escape recess 551 as shown in FIG. When the ball pressure of the sphere stored in the tank increases, the pressure is released to prevent clogging. When the prize ball tank 720 is attached to the main body frame 3, the rear side wall 722 on the back side and the rear end side of the fourth side wall 543 are substantially coincident when viewed from the front side of the prize ball tank 720 in plan view (FIG. 5). See). The guide arc projection 552 described above lifts the main body frame 3 by bringing the upper side of the main body frame 3 into contact with the inner peripheral surface of the upper frame plate 10 of the outer frame 2 and the decorative cover plate. 15 is formed to prevent a fraudulent act such as forming a gap with 15 and inserting a fraudulent instrument through the gap.

  Further, the above-described upper rear wall 545 is formed with a rail locking groove 553 for attaching the tank rail member 740 along the opening edge of the rear opening 580, and the fourth side wall 543 and the upper rear wall. A rail locking groove 554 is formed in the bent portion of 545. The tank rail member 740 can be attached to the main body frame 3 by locking the locking protrusions 749 and 750 (see FIG. 45) of the tank rail member 740 in the rail locking grooves 553 and 554. Further, a rail latching elastic piece 555 is formed on the upper portion of the upper rear wall 545 corresponding to the downstream side when the tank rail member 740 is attached, and the tank rail member 740 is locked in the rail locking grooves 553 and 554. When the projecting pieces 749 and 750 are locked and the tank rail member 740 is attached to the main body frame 3, the rail latching elastic piece 555 is provided at the upper end on the downstream side of the tank rail member 740 so that the locked state is not released. It comes in contact with the top. When the tank rail member 740 is removed, the rail rail elastic member 555 is pressed backward, and then the tank rail member 530 and 554 and the locking protrusions 749 and 750 are released from the locked state. What is necessary is just to lift 740 upward. Further, a relief hole 556 is formed on the side of the rail hooking elastic piece 555, and a ground wire connector 557 is formed below the rail hooking elastic piece 555. The escape hole 556 is formed to escape the end of the shaft pin 748 of the alignment gear 747 provided in the tank rail member 740, and the ground connector 207 is attached to the inside of the tank rail member 740. In addition to being in contact with a metal conductive plate (not shown) to be attached, a wiring connected to a ground connector provided on the power supply board is connected.

  Further, as shown in FIGS. 22 and 24, vertical support walls 560 are erected on the left and right ends of the support-side rear wall 546 on the support-supporting rear wall 546, and a spherical passage unit is provided between the stand-up walls 560. 770 and a prize ball unit 800 are attached. In addition, a prize ball guide projection 561 is provided in a bent shape from the most upstream part between the left and right standing walls 560 to slightly above the middle stream part. The prize ball guiding projection 561 is projected rearward on the pivot support side rear wall 546 so that its projecting height gradually decreases toward the downstream side, and a ball passage unit 770 described later is attached. This corresponds to the ball drop passage 772 (see FIG. 50) of the ball passage unit 770 and guides the winning balls in a line. Further, a path unit mounting boss 562 for fixing the ball path unit 770 with screws and a positioning pin 574 for positioning are provided on the left and right sides of the prize ball guide projection 561, and a ball break switch described later. A switch-corresponding protrusion 563 is provided so as to face 778 (see FIG. 50). The passage unit mounting boss 562 and the positioning pin 574 will be described in detail later.

  Furthermore, an engagement protrusion 565 as a locking portion that engages with a hook-shaped engagement portion 824 (see FIG. 52) as an engagement portion of the prize ball unit 800 from the midstream portion to the downstream portion of the left and right standing walls 560, A lock elastic claw 564 that engages with the button insertion engagement hole 821 (see FIG. 52) of the prize ball unit 800 is formed, and the rotation shaft 808 (see FIG. 52) of the sprocket 807 of the prize ball unit 800 is formed. A relief hole 566 is formed to receive the end. A payout motor escape opening 572 is formed below the pivot support side rear wall 546 so that the payout motor 815 as a drive motor of the prize ball unit 800 faces the payout motor escape opening 572. (See FIG. 25). Then, the prize ball unit 800 locks the lower end of a locking groove 573 formed at the lowermost lower end of the rear surface of the shaft support side rear wall 546, and the support protrusion side 565 and the lock elastic claw 564 are used to support the shaft support side. The rear wall 546 is detachably attached. This detachable configuration will be described in detail later.

  In addition, a cover body contact groove 567 into which an open side end of the cover body 1250 enters is formed at the open end of the pivot support side rear wall 546, and the cover body contact groove 567 of the cover body contact groove 567 is formed. A locking wall 569 protrudes downward. The cover body abutment groove 567 is formed with stop holes 568 corresponding to the stop holes 1253 (see FIG. 28) of the cover body 1250, and these stop holes 1253 and 568 are aligned with each other and fixed with screws (not shown). By doing so, the rear opening 580 of the main body frame 3 can be closed and fixed by the cover body 1250. The locking wall 569 is provided with a U-shaped locking protruding hook piece 570 that is U-shaped in plan view. By passing through the formed through-hole 1254 (see FIG. 28) and, for example, locking a padlock or the like to the locking protrusion 570, only the person having the padlock key can open the cover body 1250. You can make it impossible.

  As mentioned above, although the structure of the main body frame main body 500 which consists of the game board installation recessed part 510 and the board part 511 was demonstrated, when the door frame 5 was closed to the lowest end side part of the board part 511 other than having demonstrated above. In addition, engagement grooves 584 and 585 (see FIG. 21) are formed into which the door frame protrusions 112 and 113 (see FIG. 19) bent downward with the lower side of the door frame main body 100 bent rearward. The engagement groove 584 is a groove formed below the above-described firing device mounting portion 520, and the engagement groove 585 is a groove formed from one end of the engagement groove 584 toward the shaft support side. Note that the door frame protrusion 112 corresponding to the engagement groove 585 protrudes rearward so as to be larger than the protrusion amount of the door frame protrusion 113 corresponding to the engagement groove 584. However, a door frame protrusion 112 with a large amount of protrusion is slightly formed at the lower end of the open end. The door frame protrusions 112 and 113 and the engagement grooves 584 and 585 constitute the outer protrusions and engagement portions on the lower side portions of the door frame 5 and the main body frame 3.

  As described above, the plate portion 511 is provided with the launch rail 515 and the outlet opening / closing device 579, and the rail connection member 516 and the launch device attachment portion 520 are formed to project, but the launch device attachment portion 520 and the launch rail 515 are provided. The position of the plate portion 511 is biased toward the open side, and they are formed so as to protrude from the surface of the plate portion 511. For this reason, in the state where the door frame 5 is closed, the region from the substantially central portion of the plate portion 511 on which the launching device mounting portion 520 and the firing rail 515 are arranged to the open side is the rear surface of the door frame 5 and the launching device mounting portion. 520 and the front surface of the launch rail 515 are in close contact with each other, so that an unauthorized tool such as a piano wire that has passed through the gap between the door frame protrusion 112 and the engagement groove 585 can be removed from the back surface of the door frame 5. It is extremely difficult to make the gap between the launcher mounting portion 520 and the front surface of the launch rail 515 even better and reach the front side of the game board 4 or the back side of the game board 4.

  On the other hand, since the region from the substantially central portion of the plate portion 511 where the launcher mounting portion 520 and the firing rail 515 are not arranged to the shaft support side does not have a portion protruding on the surface of the plate portion 511, the door frame 5 is closed. In this case, a space 586 is generated between the back surface of the door frame 5 and the front surface of the plate portion 511. For this reason, an unauthorized tool such as a piano wire that has passed through the gap between the door frame protrusion 112 and the engagement groove 584 can easily open the space 586 between the back surface of the door frame 5 and the front surface of the plate portion 511. In order to prevent unauthorized tools from slipping through the space 586 upward, the mounting base 280 attached to the lower part of the back surface of the door frame 5 has the door frame 5 in a closed state. A security protrusion 285 that enters 586 is formed. The security protrusion 285 is formed on the mounting base 280 so as to extend from substantially the middle of the plate portion 511 to the end portion on the shaft support side. Therefore, the space below the launch rail 515 and the outer rail 602 attached to the game board 4 constitutes a crime prevention space 586 that receives the crime prevention projection piece 285 protruding from the mounting base 280. The security projection piece 285 and the security space 586 constitute an inner ridge and engagement portion in the lower side portion of the door frame 5 and the main body frame 3.

  As described above, the main body frame 3 includes the game board 4, the hit ball launching device 650, the prize ball tank 720, the tank rail member 740, the ball passage unit 770, the prize ball unit 800, the full tank unit 900, the lock device 1000, and the board unit. 1100 and the cover body 1250 are attached, and these will be sequentially described below.

<Schematic configuration of game board>
A schematic configuration of the game board 4 will be described with reference to FIGS. 30 to 35. 30 is a perspective view of the game board 4 as viewed from the front, FIG. 31 is a front view of the game board 4, FIG. 32 is a rear view of the game board 4, and FIG. FIG. 34 is an enlarged perspective view of a removal prevention mechanism portion formed on the game board 4, and FIG. 35 is a main body frame 3 showing a structure on the main body frame side with respect to the removal prevention mechanism of the game board 4. FIG.

  In FIG. 30, a game board 4 includes a substantially square panel holder 600 holding a transparent plate-like game panel 599, and a game area partition frame member 601 attached to the front surface of the panel holder 600 so as to surround the game area 605. , Is composed of. On the surface of the game panel 599, various game devices and a number of obstacle nails (all not shown) are planted in the game area 605. The game area partition frame member 601 is attached to the front surface of the panel holder 600 after those gaming devices and obstacle nails are provided, and the game area partition frame member 601 is formed so as to surround the periphery of the game panel 599. Are formed in a circular hollow shape and the outer shape is formed in a shape along the outer shape of the panel holder 600, and an arc surface from the middle of the lower side to the diagonally upper side past the center of the upper side is formed as the outer rail 602. The inner rail 603 is formed from the lower position of the stopper 620 provided at the end of the outer rail 602 to the position where the symmetrical backflow prevention member 604 of the upper stopper 620 is provided. The outer rail 602 has a connecting passage portion 609 that is connected to a rail connecting member 516 provided in an extension shape of the firing rail 515 at a starting end portion thereof, and is formed adjacent to the connecting passage portion 609 with a foul. A mouth 610 is formed. A metal rail is attached in close contact with the outer rail 602 from the upstream end of the foul port 610 to the stopper 620. The stopper 620 is provided with an elastic body of rubber or synthetic resin so that when a hit ball that has slid on the outer rail 602 collides with force, the hit ball hits the inside of the game area 605. The backflow prevention member 604 prevents the hit ball, which is fired at one end and taken inside the game area 605, from flowing back to the outer rail 602 again. Further, a security protrusion 608 is provided on one side of the lower portion of the outer rail 602 so as to extend along a part of the metal rail. As described above, the security projection 608 overlaps with the rear end projection 275 of the security cover 270 protruding from the security cover 270 in the state in which the door frame 5 is closed. It prevents intrusion of unauthorized tools such as a piano wire inserted from slightly below the middle of the support side gap.

  Further, an out port 606 is provided at the center of the lower portion of the inner rail 603, and the hit ball hits the game area 605 between the inner rail 603 and the outer rail 602 from the out port 606 to the backflow prevention member 604. Although it constitutes a guided passage to be guided, the hit ball that has flowed back through the outer rail 602 without reaching the game area 605 is taken into the foul port 610 and guided to the foul ball inlet 923 of the full tank unit 900 described later. Then, it is discharged again to the dish unit 300. The game area 605 is an area substantially surrounded by the inner rail 603. Further, a rail crime prevention groove 607 is formed in the game area partition frame member 601 on the way from the out port 606 of the inner rail 603 to the stop portion 620. The rail security groove 607 is formed in a groove shape so that a part of the post-crime projection piece 274 protruding from the security cover 270 enters as described above with the door frame 5 closed. Due to the concavo-convex engagement between the rail security groove 607 and the post-crime protrusion piece 274, the piano wire or the like that is inserted from the middle of the gap on the open side of the main body frame 3 and the door frame 5 is overlapped in the vertical direction. This will ultimately prevent the tool from entering.

  By the way, a positioning recess 611 is formed on one side of the game board 4 to fit in the board positioning projection 576 formed on the main body frame 3, and is formed on the main body frame 3 on the other side of the game board 4. A game board stopper 614 to be inserted into the board stopper insertion hole 578 is provided. The end of the game board stopper 614 is inserted into the board stopper insertion hole 578 when the game board stopper 614 is pressed and fixed. Thus, in order to fix the game board 4 to the main body frame 3, the game board 4 is entirely inserted after the positioning recess 611 is inserted from the front side of the main body frame 3 in an oblique direction so as to be fitted to the board positioning protrusion 576. Is pushed into the first side wall 540 of the main body frame 3, and the game board stopper 614 which is in a free state in that state is pushed in and fixed, and the end thereof is inserted into the board stopper insertion hole 578 and fixed. Thereafter, the game board fixing tool 519 is rotated to fix the lower front surface of the game board 4. As a result, the game board 4 can be easily attached to the main body frame 3. In order to remove the game board 4, the game board 4 may be removed in the reverse order of the above procedure.

  By the way, the game board 4 in this embodiment has a configuration that prevents unauthorized removal of the game board 4 from the main body frame 3 very easily. That is, as shown in FIGS. 30 and 34, a mounting notch 616 that penetrates the game board 4 in the front and rear direction is formed at the lower end opposite to the passage notch 613 below the game board 4 (exactly). In the game area partition frame member 601, an attachment notch 616 is formed.) A fastening bar 617 is stretched and fixed horizontally below the attachment notch 616. The fastening bar 617 is formed with a belt groove-like fastening portion 618 for latching the fastening band 619 at the approximate center thereof. On the other hand, as the removal preventing mechanism provided in the main body frame 3, as described above, it is the game board mounting portion 512 formed along the upper end side of the plate portion 511 below the main body frame 3, and the firing rail 515 is fired. A fastening hole 533 penetrating in the vertical direction is formed at a position corresponding to the upper portion of the portion, and a fastening linkage 534 for hooking the fastening band 619 is passed to the front portion of the fastening hole 533 (see FIG. 35). ).

  When the game board 4 configured as described above is housed and arranged in the game board installation recess 510 of the main body frame 3, the fastening bar 617 is placed in contact with the game board placement part 512 as shown in FIG. At the same time, the fastening portion 618 and the fastening linkage 534 are in a matched state. In this state, the tip of a fastening band 619 that is generally marketed from above the fastening bar 617 is inserted into the mounting notch 616 with respect to the portion where the fastening portion 618 and the fastening linkage 534 coincide. Then, it is inserted downward into the fastening hole 533 and guided forward, and its tip is engaged with the fastener portion of the fastening band 619. And the unnecessary front-end | tip part which protruded ahead from the fastener of the fastening band 619 is cut | disconnected. In this way, unless the fastening band 619 is cut, the game board 4 cannot be removed from the main body frame 3 even if the game board stopper 614 and the game board fixture 519 are released. Although the game board 4 can be removed from the main body frame 3 by cutting the fastening band 619, for example, if different fastening bands are fastened by using a fastening band 619 unique to a pachinko parlor, It can be easily understood that the board 4 has been removed and some sort of fraud has been performed. Thus, illegal removal from the main body frame 3 of the game board 4 can be prevented by an extremely simple removal prevention mechanism.

  Further, the outer shape of the game board 4 has speaker cutouts 612 formed on the upper left and right sides of the game board 4 so as to receive the rear protruding portions of the speakers 163 provided on the back surface of the door frame 5, and the side of the foul mouth 610. A notch portion 613 for passage into which a part of the front guide passage 920 portion of the full tank unit 900 described later is inserted is formed obliquely below. In addition, on the lower left and right sides of the game area partition frame member 601, a certificate sticking unit 615 for attaching a certificate check certificate is provided.

  On the other hand, on the back side of the game board 4, a winning is obtained by aligning and guiding the balls won in various gaming devices provided in the gaming area 605 (for example, a winning opening such as a big winning opening device or a general winning opening) on the downstream side. A display that controls the display of a liquid crystal display device 640 (see FIG. 74) as a display device that is provided with a space forming cover body 621 and is arranged on the back surface of the winning space forming cover body 621 at substantially the center of the game area 605. A liquid crystal display control board box 622 is attached as a display control board box in which the apparatus control board is accommodated.

  Further, a board substrate holder 623 is fixed to the back side of the game board 4 below the winning space forming cover body 621. This board substrate holder 623 has a space portion (a width of the space portion in the front-rear direction is the width of the winning space forming cover body 621 so as to collect the winning balls aligned and guided by the winning space forming cover body 621 in the front thereof. The drop port 629 (see FIG. 29) is formed on the bottom surface of the space. The drop port 629 joins at the rear surface portion of the out port 606 and communicates with an out ball passage 1119 (see FIG. 73) formed in the substrate unit 1100 described later. The board substrate holder 623 is connected to a main board box 624 for storing a main board for controlling a game operation on the back surface thereof, a payout control board 1186 provided in a board unit 1100 described later, a power supply board, and the like. A relay terminal plate 625 is attached.

These are the front view (A) which shows the relationship between the hit ball launcher 650 and the launch rail 515, and the perspective view (B) of the launch motor part, and FIG. 39 is the hit ball launch in the state where the operation handle 461 is not operated. 40 is a rear view showing the relationship between the device 650 and the firing rail 515, and FIG. 40 is a rear view showing the relationship between the ball striking device 650 and the firing rail 515 in a state where the operation handle portion 461 is operated. 41 is a plan view (A), a front view (B), a perspective view (C), a front view (B) of the slide member 710 provided in the ball striking device 650, and a cross-sectional view A-A in the front view (B). It is.

  The hitting ball launching device 650 rotatably supports the hitting ball rod 687 on the launching base frame 651, and attaches a shooting motor 695 for reciprocating rotation to the hitting ball rod 687 to the firing base frame 651, and further hits the hitting ball rod 687. The firing base frame 651 is provided with a slide rod 677 and a slide member 710 that adjust the urging force of the urging spring 684 that imparts the urging force that returns to the position.

  More specifically, as shown in FIG. 37, the launch base frame 651 is molded into a horizontally long rectangular shape by a synthetic resin, and a bearing in which a bearing 689 of a ball striking rod 687 is fitted at substantially the center thereof. A cylinder 652 is formed, and rubber stopper members 653 and 654 for restricting the firing origin position of the hitting ball 687 are attached and fixed to the upper portion and the side thereof. That is, the rubber stopper members 653 and 654 receive the impact of the hitting ball rod 687 when the hitting ball rod 687 returns to the firing origin position by the biasing force of the biasing spring 684. In addition, a slide guide hole 655 having a horizontally elongated groove is formed on the rear side of the firing base frame 651 (on the opposite side of the portion corresponding to the lower side of the firing rail 515), and a slide member storage space is formed below the slide guide hole 655. 656 is formed. The slide guide hole 655 is used for guiding a slide movement of the slide rod 677 by inserting a guide locking piece 678 protruding from the upper rear end of the slide rod 677 described later. The slide member 710 is accommodated so as to be movable in the left-right direction. The slide guide of the front portion of the slide rod 677 is guided by a guide bush 681 fixed to a guide hole 680 formed in front of the slide rod 677 in a stop hole 662 formed in the firing base frame 651 by a set screw 682. This is done by penetrating through. Further, as shown in FIG. 38, a rectangular connection opening 664 is formed on the bottom surface of the slide member storage space 656.

  Further, a hook portion is formed with respect to the main body of the launch base frame 651 at a front portion of the upper side of the launch base frame 651, and an operating piece opening 657 is formed in the hook portion above the bearing cylinder 652. ing. The operating piece opening 657 abuts on a supply swing piece 289 (see FIG. 15) provided facing a hitting ball supply port 288 (see FIG. 15) on the downstream side of the dish unit 300 of the door frame 5. The operating piece 658 is swingably provided by a stop pin 659 on a mounting portion 660 protruding from the rear upper part of the opening edge of the operating piece opening 657. The operating piece 658 is formed in a “te” shape, the rear end portion of the upper side thereof is pivotally supported by a stop pin 659, and the base plate rotates integrally with the ball striking rod 687 from the pivotal support portion to the arc portion below. 690 is in contact with the operating piece abutting portion 693 provided to project, and the upper side portion swings the supply swing piece 289 in conjunction with the reciprocating motion of the hitting ball rod 687. Balls flowing out from the supply port 288 are supplied one by one to the launch position of the launch rail 515.

  Further, on the firing base frame 651, motor mounting bosses 661 for fixing a motor cover 694 containing the firing motor 695 are projected in a total of three locations, two at the rear lower part and one at the front upper part. In addition, a swinging piece boss 663 into which a shaft hole 673 at the lower end of the swinging piece 672 connected to the slide member 710 is inserted in a projecting manner to slide the slide rod 677 to the lower rear of the slide member storage space 656. Has been.

  A metal plate 665 is attached to the above-described launch base frame 651 so that the hitting ball launcher 650 has high rigidity. For this reason, the metal plate 665 has through holes 666, 667, 668, 669 corresponding to the bearing cylinder 652, the lower rubber stopper member 653, the slide guide hole 655, the guide bush 681, and the swing piece boss 663, respectively. A horizontal oblong through hole 670 through which the connecting convex portion 712 of the slide member 710 passes is also formed. In the metal plate 665 configured as described above, after the slide member 710 is stored in the slide member storage space 656, each of the through holes 666 to 671 has the members 652, 653, 655, 681, 712, 663 corresponding thereto. It is fixed to the firing base frame 651 by being brought into close contact with the firing base frame 651 so as to penetrate or match with the screws.

  The tip of the swing piece boss 663 of the firing base frame 651 to which the metal plate 665 is attached protrudes from the through hole 671, and the shaft hole 673 of the swing piece 672 is inserted into the head portion. The swing piece 672 is pivotally supported so as to be swingable about the lower end. As shown in FIG. 37, the swing piece 672 is formed in a vertically long bowl shape, the shaft hole 673 is formed at the lower end thereof, and the connecting convex portion 712 of the slide member 710 is inserted in the middle thereof. A connecting hole 674 having a shape is formed. The front surface above the connection hole 674 is an abutting portion 675 that abuts one end (rear end) of the slide rod 677. Accordingly, the rocking piece 672 is inserted into the rocking piece boss 663 and the connecting hole 674 is inserted into the connecting convex portion 712 of the slide member 710 protruding from the through hole 670 to connect the pin 676 with washer. The rocking piece 672 is attached to the firing base frame 651 by being fixed to the convex portion 712. The attached swing piece 672 swings at the upper part around the lower end as the slide member 710 slides.

  Further, a horizontally long bowl-shaped slide bar 677 is attached to the upper front surface of the metal plate 665 so as to be slidable in the left-right direction. That is, an L-shaped guide locking piece 678 projecting from the rear upper part of the slide rod 677 is engaged with the through hole 668 of the metal plate 665, and the guide elongated hole 680 formed in front of the slide rod 677 is engaged. The guide bush 681 having the set screw 682 is passed through, and the set screw 682 is fixed to the set hole 662. The slide hook 677 is slidably mounted on the firing base frame 651 via the metal plate 665 by the guide locking piece 678 and the through hole 668, and the guide long hole 680 and the guide bush 681. The slide rod 677 is formed with a contacted portion 679 that contacts the contact portion 675 of the swing piece 672 described above at one end (rear end), and one end of the biasing spring 684 at the other end (front end). A spring locking portion 683 for hooking the locking ring 685 is projected.

  A bearing cylinder 652 of the firing base frame 651 to which the metal plate 665 is attached protrudes from the through hole 666, and the bearing cylinder 652 is fitted so that the bearing 689 of the hitting ball 687 does not fall off. The lower end portion of the hit ball 687 is fixed to the shaft of the bearing 689 and, at the same time, the base plate 690 is fixed. An operating piece abutting portion 693 that abuts against the operating piece 658 protrudes from the front back surface side of the base plate 690, and a locking ring 686 at the other end of the urging spring 684 is hooked on the front front surface. A spring locking portion 692 is protruded, and a motor contact protrusion 691 that is engaged with and disengaged from the motor cam 697 of the firing motor 695 is protruded on the rear front surface thereof. A synthetic resin rivet tip 688 is fixed to the upper end of the hitting ball 687, and the firing position formed by the lower end portion of the firing rail 515 and the firing position stopper 702 secured above the tip 688. I am going to rush into.

  On the other hand, a firing motor 695 housed in a motor cover 694 is attached to the above-described motor mounting boss 661 of the firing base frame 651. More specifically, as shown in FIG. 38 (B), the motor cover 694 includes a cylindrical portion formed so as to accommodate the firing motor 695 therein, and is enlarged in front of the cylindrical portion to attach the motor. And an anti-rotation preventing cam 698 and a motor cam at the tip of the motor shaft 696 of the firing motor 695 formed integrally with an attaching portion in which an attachment fixing hole 699 for attaching to the boss 661 is formed. 697 is fixed. A large number of reverse teeth are formed on the outer periphery of the reverse rotation prevention cam 698. The reverse rotation prevention cam 698 is engaged with a stopper piece 700 (see FIG. 39) fixed to the stopper piece mounting boss 701 so as to be swingable. Prevents reverse rotation. This is to prevent the motor cam 697 from rotating in the reverse direction so that the motor cam 697 and the motor abutting protrusion 691 mesh with each other to prevent a failure in which the ball striking device 650 cannot be driven. Further, the motor cam 697 is formed in a ball shape, and reciprocates the hitting ball rod 687 while being engaged with and disengaged from the motor abutting protrusion piece 691 as the firing motor 695 rotates. When the motor cover 694 is attached to the motor attachment boss 661, as shown in FIG. 36A, the main structure of the hitting ball launching device 650 is covered as seen from the rear surface.

  Incidentally, the slide member 710 housed in the slide member housing space 656 and slidably moved is formed in a rectangular parallelepiped shape with the rear open as shown in FIG. 41, and an elliptical oval convex portion 711 projects on the front surface thereof. Further, a circular connecting convex portion 712 is projected from the rear position of the elliptical convex portion 711. Further, on both the upper and lower surfaces, slide contact protrusions 713 having an arc cross section are provided at both ends so as to easily slide in the slide member storage space 656. On the other hand, the space of the slide member 710 formed in a rectangular parallelepiped shape is an insertion space 714 into which the slide protrusion 492 of the joint unit 480 provided in the lower part of the back surface of the door frame 5 is inserted. Thus, the insertion space 714 has a first inclined surface 715 formed on the front side of the side wall in the sliding direction, and protrudes inward from the inside of the upper surface and the lower surface slightly toward the rear of the first inclined surface 715. A sandwiching piece 716 is formed and provided with a predetermined interval between the tips of each other. A second inclined surface 717 is also formed on the front side of the sandwiching piece 716 so as to incline in a C shape when viewed from the side. Thus, in the state in which the slide protrusion 492 is inserted into the insertion space 714, as shown in FIG. 41B, one end side of the slide protrusion 492 on the inclined side 493 side contacts the side wall in the sliding direction. In this state, it is inserted between the upper and lower clamping pieces 716. In addition, although the space part 718 is formed in the side of the insertion space 714 of the slide member 710, this space part 718 is not necessarily playing a function.

  Thus, the slide member 710 configured as described above has an elliptical shape formed on the bottom surface of the slide member storage space 656 as shown in FIG. The insertion space 714 faces the connection opening 664, and the slide member 710 is in contact with one inner wall of the slide member storage space 656 (in FIG. Although they are shown in contact with each other in a normal state, they are in contact with the inner wall of the right space.

  First, the relationship of adjusting the strength of the urging spring 684 of the slide member 710 and the ball striking device 650 will be described. 39, the swing piece 672 connected to the connecting projection 712 of the slide member 710 is in a substantially vertical state. Therefore, the slide rod 677 that is in contact with the swing piece 672 is also urged in one direction (left side in FIG. 39) by the biasing force of the bias spring 684 and the contact portion 675 of the swing piece 672. The contacted portion 679 of the slide rod 677 is in contact. In this state, since the urging spring 684 is not tensioned, even if the hitting ball rod 687 is reciprocally rotated following the rotation of the firing motor 695, the return force of the hitting ball rod 687 is weak, and the hit ball at the firing position is not elastic. Even if issued, the game area 605 of the game board 4 is not reached.

  On the other hand, when the slide member 710 moves in the other direction from the initial position inside the slide member storage space 656 (when it moves toward the left inner wall in FIG. 38A), as shown in FIG. Since the swing piece 672 swings and tilts about the shaft hole 673 at the lower end, the slide rod 677 is moved in the other direction (right side in FIG. 40) by the contact between the contact portion 675 and the contacted portion 679. Slide towards you. Then, the biasing spring 684 locked to the spring locking portion 683 of the slide rod 677 is also tensioned and extended. In this state, since the urging spring 684 is tensioned, the return force of the hitting ball rod 687 when the hitting ball rod 687 is reciprocally rotated following the rotation of the shooting motor 695 is increased, and the hit ball at the shooting position is The game area 605 of the game board 4 is reached by being strongly bulleted. The strength of the impact force of the hit ball can be adjusted according to the slide amount of the slide member 710 in the slide member storage space 656.

  As described above, by moving the slide member 710, it is possible to adjust the resilience by the ball hitting device 650. The movement of the slide member 710 is performed by the operation handle portion 461 of the handle device 460 described above. This is interlocked with the movement of the slide body 483 of the joint unit 480 that moves in accordance with the turning operation of the moving operation member 464. This point will be described with reference to FIG.

  As described above, when the rotation operation member 464 of the operation handle portion 461 of the handle device 460 is rotated, the slanting cam 466 fixed to the tip of the rotation shaft 465 is also rotated, so that the slide body of the joint unit 480 483 slides and moves in one direction inside the storage body 481. For this reason, the slide protrusion 492 protruding from the front surface of the slide body 483 also slides in the same direction. When the door frame 5 is closed with respect to the main body frame 3, the slide protrusion 492 of the slide body 483 penetrates the connection opening 664 formed in the launching device mounting portion 520 of the main body frame 5 and inserts the slide member 710. It is inserted into the space 714. The insertion state in this case is a state in which one end side on the inclined side 493 side of the sliding protrusion 492 is in contact with the side wall in the sliding direction and is inserted between the upper and lower clamping pieces 716 as described above. . Accordingly, when the slide protrusion 492 slides in one direction, the slide member 710 also slides in the same direction. At this time, as described above, since the slide rod 677 also slides as the slide member 710 slides, the biasing force of the biasing spring 684 can be adjusted. That is, the ball striking force of the ball striking device 650 can be adjusted by rotating the rotation operation member 464 of the handle device 460.

  By the way, in this embodiment, since the handle device 460 is provided on the door frame 5 and the hitting ball launching device 650 is provided on the main body frame 3, the slide protrusion 492 of the handle device 460 is opened each time the door frame 5 is opened and closed. And the slide member 710 of the ball striking device 650 are linked or separated. However, in the present embodiment, as described above, by closing the door frame 5 with respect to the main body frame 3, the slide projecting piece 492 is automatically inserted into the insertion space 714 of the slide member 710, and the handle device 460. The ball striking device 650 is linked, and conversely, by opening the door frame 5 with respect to the main body frame 3, the slide protrusion 492 is separated from the insertion space 714 to separate the handle device 460 and the ball striking device 650. Therefore, the handle device 460 and the ball hitting device 650 can be linked / separated with the opening / closing of the door frame 5 very easily. In particular, when the slide protrusion 492 is inserted into the insertion space 714, the second inclination of the sandwiching piece 716 that protrudes into the insertion space 714 even if the position of the slide protrusion 492 is slightly shifted in the vertical direction. The slide projection 492 is smoothly inserted into the clamping position by the surface 717.

  In some cases, the player may stuff the padding operation member 464 of the operation handle portion 461 and fix it at a position rotated to some extent, but the store clerk at the game hall knows the padding without knowing the padding. 5 may be opened and closed. Even in such a case, when the door frame 5 is opened, there is no problem because the slide protrusion 492 is simply separated from the insertion space 714. However, when the door frame 5 is closed, the position of the slide protrusion 492 is not limited. Is slightly displaced in one direction, but the sliding member is accompanied with the closing operation of the door frame 5 by the cooperative action of the inclined side 493 of the sliding protrusion 492 and the first inclined surface 715 of the sliding member 710. The slide protrusion 492 and the slide member 710 are finally engaged with each other while moving 710 in one direction. In other words, in the present embodiment, the operation handle device 460 and the hitting ball launching device 650 can cooperate with each other regardless of the rotation position of the rotation operation member 464 of the operation handle portion 461. It is.

<Prize ball tank>
Next, the prize ball tank 720 attached to the upper part of the back surface of the main body frame 3 will be described mainly with reference to FIG. FIG. 42 is a perspective view (A), a plan view (B), and a side view (C) of the prize ball tank 720. As described above, the prize ball tank 720 is detachably attached to the tank attachment groove 550 (see FIG. 24) formed in the upper part of the back surface of the main body frame 3. Thus, the prize ball tank 720 is formed in a rectangular box shape, and when viewed from the front side of the pachinko machine 1, a notch 729 is formed in the front wall 721, and the bottom surface is formed from the upstream side wall 724 to the downstream side wall 723. A storage portion 728 is formed by a first inclined bottom surface 726 inclined toward the bottom and a second inclined bottom surface 727 inclined from the front wall 721 toward the discharge port 730 described below. In addition, a discharge port 730 is formed at the inclined lower end of the second inclined bottom surface 727, and this discharge port 730 protrudes outward from the rear wall 722 of the prize ball tank 720 when viewed from the front side of the pachinko machine 1. In this manner, the downstream side wall 723 and the rear wall 722 are formed so as to be surrounded by a discharge port projecting wall 725 that connects the U-shape. Further, on both outer sides of the front wall 721 of the prize ball tank 720, attachment flanges 733 that engage with the tank attachment groove 550 are formed, and on the back side of the bottom surface of the prize ball tank 720, the main body frame 3 is provided. Placement contact pieces 731 and 732 for placement and contact with the fourth side wall 543 project, and a ball leveling member 744, which will be described later, is attached to the lower part of the rear surface wall 722 on the upstream side of the prize ball tank 720. The ball leveling attachment shaft 735 is projected. Further, an overflow preventing member 734 for preventing the ball from jumping is detachably attached to the rear wall 722 and the upstream side wall 724 of the prize ball tank 720 excluding the discharge port 730.

  In the prize ball tank 720 configured as described above, the mounting flange 733 is attached to the tank mounting groove 550 of the main body frame 3 so as to be inserted from above, and the mounting contact pieces 731 and 732 are attached to the main body frame 3. It abuts on the fourth side wall 543. As a result, the prize ball tank 720 is placed on and attached to the upper part on the back surface side of the main body frame 3. In this attached state, as shown in FIG. 28, the prize ball tank 720 is stored via the notch 729 of the front wall 721. The portion 728 communicates with the relief recess 551 formed on the back surface of the main body frame 3, and as shown in FIG. 5, the discharge port 730 faces the upstream end of the tank rail member 740 described below. ing. Accordingly, in the prize ball tank 720, the width in the front-rear direction of the storage portion 728 for storing the sphere (the storage space portion corresponding to the first inclined bottom surface 726 and the second inclined bottom surface 727) is the second side wall 541 of the main body frame 3. It forms so that it may become substantially the same as the width | variety of the front-back direction to the 4th side wall 543, and it is mounted in the upper part to those side walls 541-543. Thus, as described above, the first side wall 540 to the fourth side wall 543 of the main body frame 3 are formed deep so as to cover the rearward projecting space of the peripheral part of the game board 4, and therefore the side wall 541 thereof. Although the depth of the storage part of the prize ball tank 720 placed on the upper part of ˜543 is shallower than that of the conventional storage tank, the prize ball tank is stored even if the prize ball is stored and increases in weight. Since the entirety of 720 is supported by the side walls 542 to 543 of the main body frame 3, the stored sphere can be smoothly guided to the discharge port 730 without deformation of the inclined bottom surfaces 726 and 727. Further, since the discharge port 730 is provided at a position outside the rear wall 722 of the prize ball tank 720, the flow of the sphere stored in the storage portion 728 flows outward from the second inclined bottom surface 727. It is configured. For this reason, as compared with the prize ball tank in which a part of the inclined bottom surface is provided with an opening as a discharge port as in the prior art, a spherical break-up protrusion for eliminating the clogging is formed in the storage portion near the discharge port. In addition, it is possible to obtain a structure in which ball clogging hardly occurs.

  In the present embodiment, as described above, the award ball tank 720 is placed on the outside of the upper portion of the rear side walls 541 to 543 that accommodates the rearward projecting portions of the gaming apparatus, and the award is given. Since the discharge port 730 of the ball tank 720 protrudes outward from the rear wall 722 of the storage unit, the tank rail member 740 is disposed outside the storage unit of the prize ball tank 720 (as viewed from the front of the pachinko machine 1). Since the tank rail member 740 and the storage portion 728 of the prize ball tank 720 do not overlap in the vertical direction, the rear protrusion of the gaming device provided on the back surface of the gaming board 4 is stored. The upper sides of the rear side walls 541 to 543 can be projected rearward at a position close to the upper side of the main body frame 3, so that even if the rearward protruding portion of the gaming device protrudes at the upper side portion of the game board 4. It can be comfortably accommodated in the interior of the side walls 541 to 543.

  Further, regardless of whether or not the storage part 728 of the prize ball tank 720 is placed on the upper outer side of the rear side walls 541 to 543 that house the rearward projecting part of the gaming apparatus, the discharge port 730 is provided in the prize ball tank 720. Only the configuration of being provided at a position outside the rear wall 722 provides a unique effect that is not found in the conventional prize ball tank. This will be described with reference to FIG. FIG. 43 is a plan view showing the pressure state of a sphere at the discharge port portion between the conventional prize ball tanks (A) and (B) and the prize ball tank (C) according to the present embodiment. In the figure, normally, the balls stored in the prize ball tank 720 are stored and retained in the storage part of the prize ball tank 720. In this case, when the discharge port 730A is formed by opening a part of the inclined bottom surface of the storage portion as in the conventional prize ball tank, for example, as shown in FIG. In the case of a prize-ball tank in which a discharge port 730A is formed on the opposite side of FIG. 43, or a discharge port 730B is formed adjacent to the ball collapse projection 736B as shown in FIG. , 730B, the ball pressure is always applied to the outlets 730A, 730B from four directions by the pressure of the stored sphere and the reaction from the side wall of the prize ball tank based on the pressure. For this reason, the pressure between the spheres happens to be balanced due to the degree of sphere overlap, and even when the sphere on the downstream side flows out, a sphere-engaged state may occur at the outlets 730A and 730B, and the sphere may be clogged. On the other hand, in the prize ball tank 720 according to the present embodiment, the discharge port 730 is provided at a position outside the rear wall 722 of the prize ball tank 720, so as shown in FIG. The pressure of the stored sphere in the discharge port 730 is a pressure from only two directions, that is, an action force directed from the storage portion toward the discharge port 730 and a reaction thereof, and does not receive pressure from four directions as in the prior art. For this reason, even if the sphere on the downstream side flows out, it is difficult to generate a sphere-engaged state at the discharge port 730 portion, and an excellent effect that sphere clogging does not occur can be achieved.

<Tank rail member>
The tank rail member 740 arranged below the prize ball tank 720 will be described with reference mainly to FIGS. 44 is a perspective view of the relationship between the prize ball tank 720, the tank rail member 740, the ball passage unit 770, the prize ball unit 800, and the full tank unit 900 as seen from the back side of the pachinko machine 1, and FIG. FIG. 46 is a perspective view of the relationship between the prize ball tank 720, the tank rail member 740, the ball path unit 770, the prize ball unit 800, and the full tank unit 900, as viewed from the front side of the pachinko machine 1, and FIG. They are sectional drawing (A) and a top view (B) which show the relationship between the downstream part of the member 740, and the upstream part of the ball passage unit 770.

  As described above, the tank rail member 740 is detachably attached to the rail locking grooves 553 and 554 (see FIG. 24) of the upper rear wall 545 of the main body frame 3. Therefore, the tank rail member 740 is provided with a plurality of locking protrusions 749 that are inserted from above into the rail locking groove 553 on the left and right sides and the lower side of the rear side surface, and the upper side of the rear side surface. At the center, a hook-shaped locking protrusion 750 is provided so as to be hooked on the rail locking groove 554 from above. Thus, the tank rail member 740 is formed in a slanted bowl shape having an open upper surface, the upper surface of the upstream end faces the discharge port 730 of the prize ball tank 720, and the lower surface of the downstream end of the tank rail member 740 forms a ball passage unit 770 described in detail later. I'm here. Further, the inside of the tank rail member 740 serves as a passage 742 through which the spheres flow down in two rows by the partition wall 741 as shown in FIG. The bottom surface of the passage 742 is notched with a narrow groove, and foreign matters that roll along the passage 742 together with the sphere fall downward from the narrow groove. In addition, a metal plate (not shown) for removing static electricity is attached to the side wall of the passage 742, and the downstream end of the metal plate is connected to the ground wire connector 557 (see FIG. 22). Yes. For this reason, the static electricity charged in the sphere flowing down the tank rail member 740 is grounded from the metal plate to the outside via the ground wire connector 557 via the ground connector.

  In addition, an egg-shaped ball leveling member 744 having a weight on the slightly downstream side of the midstream region of the tank rail member 740 is swingably provided. The ball leveling member 744 is pivotally supported by the ball leveling mounting shaft 735 of the award ball tank 720 described above, and moves toward the passages 742 in the two rows of the tank rail members 740. The spheres that are suspended and flow down the respective passages 742 flow down in a plurality of stages in the vertical direction so as to be rectified so as to become one stage. Further, the upper surface of the tank rail member 740 on the downstream side from the installation position of the ball leveling member 744 is covered with a ball pressing plate 745. The ball holding plate 745 is formed in an inclined arc shape so that the ball that has not been made one step by the ball leveling member 744 is forced to one step. Further, a pair of alignment gears 747 are rotatably supported by shaft pins 748 at the downstream end of the tank rail member 740 so as to face the respective passages 742. The alignment gear 747 has a plurality of teeth formed on its outer periphery, and is fixed to the shaft pin 748 so that the pitch of the teeth of the pair of alignment gears 747 is shifted by a half pitch. For this reason, when the upper part of the sphere that has flowed down each passage 742 of the tank rail member 740 flows downstream while meshing with the teeth of the alignment gear 747, the spheres in the two rows of passages 742 are alternately sent one by one. become. In this case, as shown in FIG. 46, the spheres flowing through the respective passages 742 are guided in the central direction along the inclined surfaces 743 formed in the lower portions of the two rows of passages 742 while meshing with the alignment gears 747. During the guidance, the spheres from the two rows of passages 742 fall in a row alternately to the upper end inlet 773 of the ball drop passage 772 of the ball passage unit 770 described below. The alignment gear 747 is covered with an arcuate gear cover 746 on its upper surface.

<Ball passage unit>
A ball passage unit 770 for guiding the balls dropped from the tank rail member 740 in a line to the winning ball unit 800 will be described with reference mainly to FIGS. 47 to 51. 47 is an exploded perspective view showing the relationship between the main body frame 3 and the ball passage unit 770 and the prize ball unit 800, and FIG. 48 is a rear view showing the relationship between the ball passage unit 770 and the prize ball unit 800. 49 is a perspective view of the ball passage unit 770 as viewed from the back, FIG. 50 is a front view of the ball passage unit 770, and FIG. 51 is a connection structure of the ball passage unit 770 and the prize ball unit 800. It is a side view for demonstrating. 48 and 49, the prize ball unit 800 portion is a drawing of the ball passage portion formed in the unit base body 801 with the gear cover 866, the aluminum heat sink 841 and the unit sub plate 825 removed. is there. However, the gears and the like are indicated by alternate long and short dash lines in order to facilitate understanding of the relationship with the ball passage.

  In the spherical passage unit 770, a spherical drop passage 772 is formed by a pair of bent passage walls 771 bent to the back surface of a substantially rectangular plate (the surface seen from the back surface is referred to as the front surface). As shown in FIG. 46 (A), the ball drop passage 772 communicates with the front and rear bent passage portion 772a whose upstream is bent in the front and rear direction (depth direction when viewed from the back), and the front and rear bent passage portion 772a. It consists of a left and right bent passage portion 772b bent in the left and right direction (left and right direction when viewed from the back) and a vertical passage portion 772c communicating with the left and right bent passage portion 772b and having a substantially vertical shape. As shown in FIG. 46A, the front / rear bent passage portion 772a is located at the center of the two rows of passages 742, as described above, because the position of the upper end inlet 773 dropping from the tank rail member 740 is the main body frame. 3 is positioned away from the surface of the upper rear wall 545 and the pivot support side rear wall 546 to the rear side, so that the winning ball guiding projections projecting from the front / rear bent passage 772a and the pivot support rear wall 546 are provided. 561 and the ball dropping passage 772 are bent in the front-rear direction so as to be positioned close to the surface of the shaft-supporting rear wall 546. Further, as shown in FIG. 50, the left and right bent passage portions 772b are formed in a U-shape so as to be almost full of the width of the ball passage unit 770 in order to weaken the momentum of the sphere that has dropped from the tank rail member 740 to the front and rear bent passage portions 772a. It is formed by bending. Further, although the vertical passage portion 772c is formed in a substantially vertical shape, it is slightly curved and formed, and a cutout portion 775 is formed in one bent passage wall 771 constituting the vertical passage portion 772c. A ball breakage detecting piece 776 whose upper end is supported by a support shaft 777 is attached to 775 so as to be swingable. A ball break switch 778 is attached to the side of the ball break detection piece 776, and an actuator 779 of the ball break switch 778 is in contact with the ball break detection piece 776. The ball break detection piece 776 and the ball break switch 778 constitute a ball break detection mechanism for detecting a ball break in the vertical passage portion 772c.

  Thus, when a ball is present in the vertical passage portion 772c, the ball piece detection piece 776 is pressed by the ball present in the vertical passage portion 772c and the actuator 779 is pushed to turn on the ball piece switch 778. When no ball is present in the portion 772c due to clogging or ball deficiency, the ball piece detecting piece 776 swings into the vertical passage portion 772c, and the actuator 779 turns off the ball piece switch 778. When the ball break switch 778 is turned off, the rotation of the payout motor 815 of the prize ball unit 800, which will be described later, stops and the payout of the prize ball is stopped. A stopper protrusion 780 is formed at the lower end of the notch 775 in order to prevent excessive swinging of the ball breakage detecting piece 776 to the opposite side of the passage, and the ball passage unit 770 has a ball. A ball clogging insertion groove 781 is formed in the vertical passage portion 772 c corresponding to the cut detection piece 776. The ball clogging insertion groove 781 inserts a pin from the rear surface side of the ball passage unit 770 to prevent clogging of the ball breakage detection piece 776 when it is difficult to swing the ball breakage detection piece 776 due to ball clogging or the like. This is provided to eliminate the problem. Further, the other bent passage wall 771 facing the ball piece detecting piece 776 is formed in a bulging shape slightly toward the ball piece detecting piece 776 side. This is because when a ball is present in the vertical passage portion 772c, the ball break detection piece 776 is surely pressed to turn on the ball break switch 778.

  Further, a stop hole 782 and a positioning boss 783 are formed in the ball path unit 770 at a position avoiding the above-described ball drop path 772. The positioning boss 783 is engaged with a positioning pin 574 formed on the shaft support side rear wall 546 of the main body frame 3, and the stop hole 782 is a passage unit mounting boss similarly formed on the shaft support side rear wall 546. 562. Thus, to attach the ball passage unit 770 to the main body frame 3, as shown in FIG. 47, the passage unit attachment boss 562 and the stop hole 782 are made to coincide with each other while the positioning boss 783 is engaged with the positioning pin 574. In this state, the screw 784 can be screwed from the stop hole 782. Further, the ball passage unit 770 is formed with a cover body engaging groove 785 that engages with an engaging piece of the cover body 1250 in the middle of one side, and is connected to the prize ball unit 800 at the lower part. A connecting lid member 786 is rotatably provided.

  As shown in FIG. 49, the connecting lid member 786 is configured by projecting a pair of passage walls 790 projecting in an arc shape on the back surface of a rectangular plate member, and the lower surface of the ball passage unit 770 The projecting shaft 789 as the rotating shaft projecting from the tip of the support piece 788 extending from the both ends of the connecting lid member 786 is fitted into the supporting projecting piece 787 serving as the shaft support projecting from the left and right ends of the connecting lid 786. Thus, it is pivotally supported. In addition, the connecting lid member 786 is extended below the ball passage unit 770 by closing, and the passage formed by the passage wall 790 and the downstream end portion of the ball dropping passage 772 communicate with each other (see FIG. 51B). The state shown in FIG. 51) and the state where the passage formed by the passage wall 790 and the downstream end of the ball dropping passage 772 do not communicate with each other (the state shown in FIG. 51A). A guide projection 791 that guides the support piece 788 of the connecting lid member 786 when projecting from the opened state to the closed state projects from the lower end of the rear surface of the ball path unit 770.

  Thus, the ball path unit 770 is fixed to the pivot support side rear wall 546 of the main body frame 3, and the prize ball unit 800 is also mounted on the pivot support side rear wall 546 as will be described later (FIG. 51 ( In the state shown in A), the connecting lid member 786 is closed and the rear surface thereof is locked by the locking elastic claw 820 provided in the prize ball unit 800, so that the ball drop path 772 of the ball path unit 770 and the prize ball unit By connecting the 800 bent passages 803 with the passage wall 790, a ball falling on the ball dropping passage 772 of the ball passage unit 770 can be guided to the bent passage 803 of the prize ball unit 800. The reason why the rotatable connecting lid member 786 is provided in the ball passage unit 770 is that the award ball unit 800 can be easily attached to and detached from the main body frame 3 as will be described later, and the attachment and detachment thereof is possible. This is to prevent the space formed between the ball path unit 770 and the prize ball unit 800 from being hindered from falling smoothly.

  Further, between the pair of bent passage walls 771 projecting from the ball passage unit 770, the projecting height is provided on the pivot side rear surface wall 546 of the main body frame 3 so as to gradually decrease toward the downstream side. By inserting the award ball guide projection 561, the upstream portion of the ball drop passage 772 is placed on the rear side so that the upper end inlet 773 of the ball drop passage 772 is located substantially at the lower center of the two rows of passages 742 of the tank rail member 740. It is formed as a front / rear bent passage portion 772a that bends in the front / rear direction when viewed from the side. Accordingly, in the configuration in which the balls flowing down in two rows by the pair of alignment gears 747 are alternately sent one by one to the prize ball unit 800 side, the balls are smoothly sent one by one to the prize ball unit 800 through the ball drop passage 772. Can do. Further, according to this configuration, since it is not necessary to form the ball drop passage 772 from an assembly of a plurality of members, the number of parts constituting the ball drop passage 772 can be reduced, and the ball drop passage 772 can be assembled. Workability can be improved.

  In addition, the sphere that has fallen from the tank rail member 740 in the front / rear bent passage portion 772a weakens its momentum by passing through the left / right bent passage portion 772b, and then is sent to the winning ball unit 800 through the vertical passage portion 772c. . The vertical passage portion 772c into which the ball is fed in a state where the momentum is weakened is provided with a ball break detection mechanism (a ball break detection piece 776 and a ball break switch 778) for detecting the ball break. Accordingly, it is possible to reliably detect a break in the ball drop passage 772, in other words, a break in the ball supplied to the winning ball unit 800 (a ball break).

<Prize ball unit>
Next, the prize ball unit 800 disposed on the downstream side of the above-described ball path unit 770 will be described mainly with reference to FIGS. 52 to 55. 52 is an exploded perspective view as seen from the back side of the prize ball unit 800. FIG. 53 is a rear view for explaining the relationship between the payout motor 815 and the sprocket 807 as a payout member.

A unit sub-plate 825 covering the rear surface of 801, a relay board 830 attached to the upper surface (rear surface side) of the unit sub-plate 825, and a gear provided in a substantially central surface region (rear surface region) of the unit sub-plate 825; It comprises a group 843, 844, 847 and a gear cover 866 that covers the detection disk 850 (rotation transmission member). Hereinafter, these configurations will be sequentially described.

  The unit base body 801 is formed in a substantially rectangular plate shape (this plate portion may be referred to as a “bottom surface”), and a pair of bent passages projecting toward the plate-like unit sub plate 825 side. A bent passage 803 is formed by the wall 802. The bent passage wall 802 protrudes from the center of the upper part of the unit base body 801 to the middle of the downstream side at a distance slightly larger than the diameter of the sphere. It also serves as side walls on both ends of the unit base body 801 from the downstream end to the downstream end. In addition, the middle bent passage wall 802 is largely divided into left and right portions to form a distribution space 805 in which a sprocket 807 serving as a ball feed rotating body is arranged, and a unit base body 801 from the lower portion of the distribution space 805. A passage partition wall 809 is formed in a projecting manner so as to form a pair of the bent passage walls 802 divided to the left and right until the downstream end. That is, the right and left bent passage walls 802 and the passage partition wall 809 on the downstream side from the middle form two passages on the left and right from the distribution space 805, and one passage constitutes the prize ball passage 810, The other passage forms a ball passage 811. The passage partition wall 809 is also largely divided into left and right, and a motor storage space 814 for storing the payout motor 815 is formed inside the divided passage partition wall 809. That is, the payout motor 815 is housed and fixed in a motor housing space 814 that is located at a position avoiding the ball passage (bending passage 803, prize ball passage 810, ball removal passage 811) and within the depth width dimension of the ball passage. Is done. The bent passage 803 is formed in a meandering shape so as to weaken the pressure applied to the sprocket 807 of the spheres staying in the passage 803 and reaches the distribution space 805, but the upstream side of the distribution space 805 An elliptical opening 804 is formed on the bottom surface of the. The opening 804 stores small dust or the like that has entered the bent passage 803, and can collect dust or the like that is collected when the prize ball unit 800 is removed from the main body frame 3.

A plurality of 813 are formed. However, among the plurality of locking claws 813, the locking claw 813 that engages with one locking portion 860 at the lower end of the passage lid plate portion 859 is formed on the passage partition wall 809 side.

  In addition, a circular motor storage space 814 for storing the payout motor 815 is formed below the unit base body 801 and between the prize ball passage 810 and the ball removal passage 811. This motor storage space 814 The cylindrical main body of the payout motor 815 is accommodated in the inside. However, the payout motor 815 is fixed to the back side of the aluminum heat radiating plate 841 attached below the unit sub plate 825 with a pair of mounting pieces 816 formed on the front surface thereof with screws 817. Then, in a state where the payout motor 815 is attached to the aluminum heat radiating plate 841 of the unit sub-plate 825, the motor shaft 818 of the payout motor 815 passes through the shaft insertion hole 842 drilled in the aluminum heat radiating plate 841. The gear 843 is fixed. In addition, a space in the depth width direction in which the bent passage 803, the prize ball passage 810, and the ball removal passage 811 are formed by covering the rear surface side of the unit base body 801 with the unit sub plate 825 and the aluminum heat sink 841. The cylindrical main body portion of the dispensing motor 815 is also accommodated in the inside. Since the motor storage space 814 for storing the payout motor 815 and the distribution space 805 in which the sprocket 807 is disposed are formed in a very close positional relationship in the vertical direction, the unit base body 801 in the vertical direction The length can be shortened, and as a result, the prize ball unit 800 can be made compact.

  Further, the unit base body 801 is provided with a guide protrusion 819 that guides the ball extracted at the lowermost end of the above-described ball extraction path 811 to the back side of the prize ball unit 800, and the guide protrusion 819 The guided sphere is guided to a ball outlet connecting passage 880 described later, and finally discharged to the outside of the pachinko machine 1 (a collection basket provided below the island platform).

  Next, the gears 843, 844, 847 and the detection disk 850 provided in the gear region 840 formed in the unit sub plate 825 will be described. As described above, the tip of the motor shaft 818 of the payout motor 815 protrudes from the surface (rear side) of the unit sub plate 825 through the shaft insertion hole 842 formed in the aluminum heat radiating plate 841 of the unit sub plate 825. The first gear 843 (drive gear) is fixed to the protruding portion. Above the first gear 843, a second gear 844 (rotation transmission gear) that meshes with the first gear 843 is press-fitted into the back surface (front side) of the gear cover 866 and is formed in the aluminum heat radiating plate 841. A shaft 845, the other end of which is supported in the shaft hole 846, is rotatably provided. Above the second gear 844, a third gear 847 (rotation transmission gear) that meshes with the second gear 844 is a unit sub-plate. A shaft 848 press-fitted in a shaft hole 849 formed in 825 is rotatably provided. Further, above the third gear 847, a detection disk 850 having a gear portion 852 (driven gear) that meshes with the third gear 847 is rotatably provided on a rotary shaft 808 that supports the sprocket 807. . As shown in FIG. 55, the tip of the motor shaft 818 is loosely fitted in a receiving hole formed in the gear cover 866. The rotating shaft 808 is supported by being pressed into a bearing cylinder 806 formed on the unit base body 801 and supported at the other end by a bearing hole formed on the gear cover 866. The sprocket 807 is rotatably supported in the distribution space 805 through a shaft through hole 864 formed slightly below the center of the 840, and the detection disk 850 is formed in the space formed by the unit sub plate 825 and the gear cover 866.

However, as shown in FIG. 55, since the rear end portion of the sprocket 807 is engaged with the center front surface portion of the detection disk 850, the sprocket 807 and the detection disk 850 are integrated around the rotation shaft 808. It is designed to rotate. Accordingly, when the dispensing motor 815 is driven to rotate, the rotation is transmitted to rotate the sprocket 807 via the first gear 843, the second gear 844, the third gear 847, and the gear portion 852 of the detection disk 850.

  The outer periphery of the detection disk 850 is formed to be slightly larger than the circle of the gear portion 852, and the outer peripheral portion protruding outward from the gear portion 852 has the same number as the recesses of the sprocket 807 (in the case of illustration). 3) detection notches 851 are formed. This detection notch 851 is detected by a light emitting / receiving sensor 855 (rotation position detecting means) provided on a sensor substrate 854 sandwiched and supported by a substrate mounting portion 857 formed on the surface of the unit sub-plate 825. . The sensor 855 monitors whether or not the sprocket 807 is rotating normally by detecting the number of detection notches 851 within a predetermined interval during the payout operation. If abnormal rotation is detected by the sensor 855 (in many cases, the ball is engaged with the sprocket 807), the sprocket 807 is rotated forward and backward a predetermined number of times to eliminate the abnormal state (for example, the ball engagement state). It is. Note that the number of balls actually paid out is detected by the payout ball detection sensor 812 provided in the prize ball passage 810 and used for counting. As shown in FIG. 55, the other end side of the sensor substrate 854 is also sandwiched between substrate mounting portions formed on the gear cover 866.

  As described above, of the plurality of gears provided in the gear region 840, only the second gear 844 is rotatably provided on the rotary shaft 845 that is press-fitted to the gear cover 866 side. A mounting hole 867 is formed at a position corresponding to the tip of the mounting boss 823 that protrudes from the unit base body 801 and passes through the through hole 858 of the unit sub-plate 825. The mounting hole 867 and the mounting boss 823 are aligned with each other while meshing the teeth of the second gear 844 provided on the gear cover 866 side with the teeth of the first gear 843 and the third gear 847 provided on the unit sub-plate 825 side. In this state, the base unit body 451 and the gear cover 866 are integrally fixed in a state where the unit sub plate 825 is sandwiched by screwing with the screw 868 from the rear surface of the gear cover 866. Further, on one side surface of the gear cover 866, there is a wiring processing piece 869 that hangs and collects wiring connected to the relay board 830 (for example, wiring connecting the relay board 830 and a payout control board 1186 described later). Projected.

  The configuration of the prize ball unit 800 has been described above. In the state where the unit base body 801, the unit sub-plate 825, the relay board 830, the board cover 835, and the gear cover 866 are assembled, as shown in FIG. The cylindrical main body portion of the payout motor 815 is positioned below the bent passage 803 through which the ball to be taken out is guided. Further, the unit base body 801 includes a sprocket 807 arranged in a ball passage (bending passage 803, prize ball passage 810, ball removal passage 811) and a depth width dimension of the ball passage at a position avoiding the ball passage. A payout motor 815 housed in a motor housing space 814 formed therein, and the rotation of the motor shaft 818 of the payout motor 815 along the non-blocking surface side of the unit sub-plate 825 is rotated by the sprocket 807. A rotation transmission member (first gear 843, second and third gears 844, 847, and a gear portion 852 of the detection disk 850) for transmitting to the shaft 808 is provided, and in the distribution space 805 of the dispensing motor 815 and the bending passage 803. A plurality of gears 843, 844, 84 provided in the gear region 840 on the rear surface of the unit sub-plate 825 with the sprocket 807 serving as a payout member disposed. It has become a consolidated structure to be driven to rotate by 850 (852). That is, the sprocket 807 and the payout motor 815 are accommodated within the depth width of the ball passage (bending passage 803, prize ball passage 810, ball removal passage 811) formed between the unit base body 801 and the unit sub plate 825. In addition, the rotation transmission members (the first gear 843, the second and third gears 844 and 847, and the gear portion 852 of the detection disk 850) that connect the sprocket 807 and the payout motor 815 are connected to the non-blocking surface side of the unit sub-plate 825. Therefore, the prize ball unit 800 can be made thinner than the one in which a payout motor and a part of the sprocket are arranged outside the ball passage. In addition, such a prize ball unit 800 has a ball passage (bending passage 803, prize ball passage 810, ball removal passage 811) in the prize ball unit 800 formed in a single passage shape, so Thinning is achieved. That is, unlike the conventional case in which the payout motor 815 is protruded to the front side, the rear side or the side of the prize ball unit, when attached to the rear side of the shaft support side rear wall 546 of the main body frame 3, Any part of the prize ball unit 800 can be structured not to protrude further rearward. 55, the front end portion of the payout motor 815 is configured to slightly protrude from the rear surface of the unit base body 801. This protruding portion is formed on the shaft support side rear wall 546 as shown in FIG. Since it faces the front portion of the main body frame 3 from the lower discharge motor escape opening 572, as a result, it protrudes by a dimension obtained by subtracting the thickness of the shaft support side rear wall 546 from the protruding dimension. Thus, the amount of protrusion toward the front side relative to the shaft support side rear wall 546 is small. Further, by adopting such a configuration, in the present embodiment, the game board 4 is provided between the pivotal support side rear wall 546 of the main body frame 3 to which the prize ball unit 800 is attached and the back surface of the game board 4. A storage space for storing the rearward protruding portion of the gaming apparatus can be increased in the depth width direction.

  In addition, in order to attach the prize ball unit 800 configured as described above to the pivotal support side rear wall 546 of the main body frame 3, as shown in FIG. 47, the hook-shaped engagement portion 824, the engagement protrusion 565, After the alignment, the lower end of the prize ball unit 800 is hooked in the locking groove 573, and the prize ball unit 800 is pivotally supported to engage the hook-like engagement portion 824 and the engagement protrusion 565. The lower side wall 546 is pressed down while being in close contact with the side rear wall 546. At this time, since the lower end portion of the prize ball unit 800 and the locking groove 573 are engaged, and the hook-shaped engaging portion 824 and the engaging protrusion 565 are engaged, the mounting itself is completed. When the prize ball unit 800 is moved upward, the respective engagement states are easily released. To prevent this, the lock elastic claw 564 is engaged with the button insertion engagement hole 821. It is supposed to be. That is, the lock elastic claw 564 and the button insertion engagement hole 821 are engaged to prevent the prize ball unit 800 from moving upward in the attached state. In this way, after the prize ball unit 800 is attached, the connecting lid member 786 of the ball path unit 770 is rotated as described above and locked by the locking elastic claw 820, so that the ball path of the ball path unit 770 drops. The downstream end of the passage 772 and the upstream end of the bent passage 803 of the prize ball unit 800 can be communicated with each other through a passage constituted by a pair of passage walls 790. When the prize ball unit 800 is attached, the downstream end of the prize ball passage 810 is connected to the prize ball entrance 927 of the full tank unit 900 described in detail later, and the downstream end of the ball removal path 811 is connected to the ball removal connection path. Connected to the upstream end of 880.

  On the other hand, when the prize ball unit 800 is removed, the engagement by the latching elastic claws 820 is released and the connecting lid member 786 is rotated forward, and then the detachable button 822 is pressed to release the locking elastic claws 564. It is moved to the front side to release the engagement between the lock elastic claw 564 and the button insertion engagement hole 821, and then the prize ball unit 800 is pulled upward with the detachable button 822 pressed, and the prize ball unit 800. By releasing the engagement between the lower end portion of the lens and the locking groove 573 and the engagement between the hook-shaped engagement portion 824 and the engagement protrusion 565 and pulling out the prize ball unit 800 to the front side, Easy to remove.

<Full tank unit>
The full tank unit 900 disposed on the downstream side of the above-described prize ball unit 800 will be described mainly with reference to FIGS. 56 to 62. 56 is a perspective view showing the relationship between the prize ball unit 800 and the full tank unit 900. FIG. 57 is a perspective view of the full tank unit 900. FIG. 58 is a front view of the full tank unit 900. 59 is an exploded perspective view, FIG. 59 is an exploded perspective view seen from the back of the full tank unit 900, and FIG. 60 is a partially broken perspective view showing the relationship between the full tank unit 900 and the foul port 610, 61 is a cross-sectional view taken along the bottom rocking plate 907 provided in the full tank unit 900, and FIG. 62 is a cross-sectional view showing the relationship between the full tank unit 900 and the foul port 610.

  The full unit 900 is placed and fixed on the full unit mounting portion 531 of the main body frame 3 as described above. As shown in FIG. 58, the full unit is formed in a box shape having an open upper surface. 901 and a lid body 926 that covers the upper surface of the box main body 901. The box main body 901 is configured such that the sphere that has flowed in from the downstream end of the prize ball passage 810 is guided in a zigzag shape inside and discharged from the outlet 921. Therefore, a side guide passage 902 that guides a sphere that has flowed in from a prize ball inlet 927 formed in the lid 926 to the side from one end to the other end is formed in the upstream portion. A side guide receiving portion 903 formed in a concave arc shape so as to guide the sphere toward the side is provided at one end portion of the side guide passage 902 directly below the prize ball entrance 927, and the side guide passage 902 is provided. A buffer member 904 is provided on the inner surface of the other end of 902 to receive the impact of the sphere flowing through the side guide passage 902 and guide the sphere downstream.

  In addition, the sphere that collides with the buffer member 904 provided on the inner surface of the other end of the side guide passage 902 is guided to flow in the opposite direction to the flow of the sphere in the side guide passage 902 after changing the direction to the downstream side. A reverse side guide passage 905 is formed. The sphere that has flowed through the reverse side guide passage 905 is then guided to the front guide passage 920 formed forward, and the outlet 921 formed at the lower end of the front guide passage 920 forms the above-described dish unit 300. Guided to prize ball contact 451.

  By the way, a bottom surface opening 906 is formed on the bottom surface on the upstream side of the reverse side guide passage 905 so as to open over the entire bottom surface. ing. The bottom surface opening 906 is formed in a substantially square concave shape having an open top surface, and a pair of shaft projections 911 project from the side walls in the front-rear direction when viewed from the front inside. A circular spring mounting recess 912 for positioning the lower end of the spring 913 is formed on the concave bottom surface of the bottom surface opening 906. On the other hand, the bottom rocking plate 907 that closes the bottom opening 906 is formed in a substantially square shape, and is semicircular that is pivotally supported by fitting to the pivot projection 911 when viewed from the front on the downstream side of the bottom surface. A bearing portion 908 is formed to project. Further, as shown in FIG. 61, a spring locking projection 910 that locks the upper end of the spring 913 protrudes downward from the center of the back surface of the bottom rocking plate 907. Therefore, the bottom rocking plate 907 is biased in the direction in which the upstream side is always rocked upward by the biasing force of the spring 913. The spring 913 does not swing the bottom rocking plate 907 downward even when a normal number of payout balls (for example, 15) is placed on the bottom rocking plate 907 at a time. A predetermined number of balls equal to or greater than the payout number is formed by a spring member having a spring coefficient that swings downward when placed on the bottom swing plate 907. Further, a detection protrusion 909 protrudes forward on the upstream side of the bottom rocking plate 907. The detection protrusion 909 passes through the communication hole 929 and is positioned in a switch storage space 914 described below when the bearing portion 908 of the bottom rocking plate 907 is fitted and supported on the shaft support protrusion 911. It has become.

  In addition, a switch storage space 914 for storing the full tank switch 916 is integrally formed on the outer side of the upstream end side wall of the reverse side guide passage 905. In order to mount the full switch 916 in the switch storage space 914, a switch mounting portion 918 is formed on the outer surface of the side wall of the upstream end portion of the reverse side guide passage 905 above the switch storage space 914. A mounting piece 917 of the switch holder 915 that holds the full switch 916 is fixed to the portion 918 by a screw 919. The full tank switch 916 is configured as a switch composed of a projector and a light receiver, and detects ON / OFF when the detection protrusion 909 swings up and down between the light receiver and the light projector.

  Further, a foul ball passage 922 is formed on one side downstream of the reverse side guide passage 905. As shown in FIG. 60, the foul ball passage 922 is bent and formed so that the foul ball inlet 923 communicates with the foul port 610 described above and the downstream side communicates with the upstream side of the front guide passage 920. Has been. For this reason, the foul balls taken into the foul mouth 610 are guided from the foul ball inlet 923 through the bent foul ball passage 922 to the front guide passage 920, and further through the outlet 921 and the prize ball connecting rod 451 to the dish unit. Returned to 300.

  The box main body 901 includes engagement pieces that are engaged with unit engagement grooves 532 formed in the full unit mounting portion 531 on both sides of the outlet 921 and one side of the foul ball inlet 923. A latching projection 925 that engages with a latching piece 928 formed on the lid body 926 is formed while a projection 924 is provided. The latching protrusion 925 is appropriately formed on the upper left and right side walls of the box main body 901.

  On the other hand, the lid 926 is formed in a plate shape so as to cover the upper surfaces of the side guide passage 902, the reverse side guide passage 905, the front guide passage 920, and the foul ball passage 922 of the box main body 901. A square prize ball inlet 927 is opened in the passage 902 at a position corresponding to the upstream end. Further, around the lid 926, a latching piece 928 for engaging with the latching projection 925 of the box main body 901 projects downward.

  In the full tank unit 900 configured as described above, as shown in FIG. 56, the balls paid out from the prize ball passage 810 of the prize ball unit 800 are moved upstream from the prize ball entrance 927 to the side guide passage 902. It enters and is guided toward the side by the side guide receiving portion 903 and collides with the buffer member 904. The sphere colliding with the buffer member 904 is guided in the reverse side guide passage 905 toward the downstream side in the direction opposite to the guide direction of the side guide passage 902 and guided to the front guide passage 920, and the front guide passage 920. From the exit 921 through the prize ball communication rod 451 to the dish unit 300. Further, the foul sphere entered from the foul ball entrance 923 is also weakened by the bent foul ball passage 922 and joined to the front guide passage 920, and passes through the prize ball contact hole 451 from the outlet 921 of the front guide passage 920. Guided to the dish unit 300.

  In normal times, when the sphere naturally flows in the full tank unit 900, when the sphere moves from the side guide passage 902 to the reverse side guide passage 905, it falls to the bottom rocking plate 907. Since the elastic force of the spring 913 is strong when the number of normal prize balls is paid out, the bottom rocking plate 907 does not rock, and the detection protrusion 909 is a light projecting / receiving method as shown by the solid line in FIG. The full tank switch 916 is placed between the projector and the light receiver, and the switch is not conductive (OFF). On the other hand, when the prize balls are stored in the dish unit 300 and the full tank unit 900 is also filled with balls, the bottom fluctuations formed in the entire upstream area of the front guide path 920 and the reverse side guide path 905 are formed. The bottom rocking plate 907 rocks downward against the biasing force of the spring 913 due to the pressure of the sphere stored on the moving plate 907, and the detection protrusion 909 is projected as shown by the two-dot chain line in FIG. The light receiving full tank switch 916 is disconnected from the light projector and the light receiver, and the switch becomes conductive (ON). When the full tank switch 916 is turned on, the rotational driving of the payout motor 815 of the prize ball unit 800 is stopped (if the ON signal is derived while the predetermined number of prize balls are being paid out, the predetermined number of prize balls). Will be stopped after it has been paid out).

  As described above, in the full tank unit 900, the full tank switch is operated by the bottom rocking plate 907 having a width substantially the same as the width of the bottom of the path of the path through which the ball flows (in the illustrated case, the reverse side guide path 905). 916 is actuated and biased by a biasing member (spring 913) so that the bottom rocking plate 907 swings when a certain amount of balls are placed without swinging due to the normal flow of the balls. Therefore, compared to the conventional case where a ball is placed on the bottom surface of some passages or the like to detect a clogged ball, the placement of the balls in that portion of the passage is not detected due to the clogging. It can be surely prevented. This can reliably detect a full tank.

  As described above, the full unit 900 according to the present embodiment is detachably attached to the full unit mounting portion 531 of the main body frame 3, so that the full unit is attached to the main body frame as in the past. It is not necessary to form a passage for a full tank structure in the main body frame as compared with the one assembled in the formed dispensing passage. Further, by making the inside of the full tank unit 900 a zigzag passage, it is possible to guide to the dish unit 300 while weakening the momentum of the balls paid out from the prize ball passage 810 of the prize ball unit 800. The awarded ball does not jump out of the dish unit 300. Further, in the full tank unit 900 according to the present embodiment, the foul ball passage 922 that guides the foul ball joins the ball in the middle of the front guide passage 920 that pays out the award ball. The foul sphere can be merged without hindering the flow of the sphere.

<Lock device>
Next, the lock device 1000 attached in the vertical direction along the back side edge of the main body frame 3 will be described with reference mainly to FIGS. 63 is a rear perspective view showing the relationship between the lock device 1000 and the main body frame 3, and FIG. 64 is an enlarged side cross-sectional view showing a latching structure of the lock device 1000 to the main body frame 3. FIG. FIG. 66 is a partial cross-sectional view cut in the horizontal direction at a position slightly below the center in the vertical direction of the pachinko machine 1, and FIG. 66 shows a detailed relationship between the lock device 1000 and the side walls 540 and 541 of the main body frame 3. 67 is an enlarged sectional view, FIG. 67 is a side view (A) of the locking device 1000, a perspective view (B) viewed from the front side, and FIG. 68 is a perspective view (A) viewed from the back side of the locking device 1000. ) Are perspective views (B) and (C) of a door frame sliding rod 1040 and a body frame sliding rod 1050 that are slidably provided inside the U-shaped base 1001 of the locking device 1000. FIG. FIG. 70 is an exploded perspective view of the lock device 1000, and FIG. Is a front view for explaining the operation of the body frame for sliding rod 1050, FIG. 71 is a front view for explaining the action of the anti-fraud members 1023,1032.

  The locking device 1000 is attached from the substantially upper end to the lower end of the main body frame 3 along the first side wall 540 on the open side of the main body frame 3, and as shown in FIG. A plurality of (three in the illustrated example) lock locking holes 548 formed in the middle and middle of the upper and lower ends between the rising portions of the first side wall 540 and the upper part of the vertical surface of the first side wall 540 The U-shaped base 1001 of the locking device 1000 described below is supported by the lock mounting hole 547 formed by being cut out in the middle and the lock mounting hole 547 formed near the upper portion of the cylinder lock through hole 526. It is fixed. Therefore, the structure of the lock device 1000 will be described in detail below.

  As shown in FIGS. 67 to 69, the locking device 1000 includes a U-shaped base 1001 as a lock base formed in a U-shaped cross section, and a door frame slidably provided in the U-shaped base 1001. The sliding frame 1040 for the main body, the sliding frame 1050 for the main body frame slidably provided in the U-shaped base 1001, and the sliding frame 1050 for the main body frame cannot be illegally slid. The tamper-proof members 1023 and 1032 are attached to the lower part of the U-shaped base 1001.

  The U-shaped base body 1001 is formed by bending a metal so as to have a U-shaped cross section, and slidably providing a door frame sliding rod 1040 and a body frame sliding rod 1050 therein. The width dimension is extremely thin as compared with a conventional locking device that is concentrated on a base body having an L-shaped cross section. As described above, the size of the game board 4 in the horizontal direction and the vertical direction is greatly increased, and the space surrounded by the side walls 540 to 543 of the main body frame 3 is increased. The mounting structure that allows the locking device 1000 to be attached to the back side of the main body frame 3 by reducing the width dimension of the locking device 1000 according to the present embodiment because the size between the outer periphery and the outer periphery is extremely small. It is because it improved as. And since the open side of the U-shaped cross section of the U-shaped base 1001 is attached so as to face the back surface of the main body frame 3, when the lock device 1000 is attached to the main body frame 3, the door frame is provided inside. The sliding rod 1040 and the body frame sliding rod 1050 have a tamper-proof structure in which the U-shaped base 1001 is completely covered except for the hook portions 1041, 1054, and 1065.

  First, a rectangular hook penetration opening 1002 through which the hook portions 1054 and 1065 of the main body frame sliding rod 1050 pass is opened on the closed side opposite to the open side of the U-shaped base 1001 and on the closed side. Further, a screw fixing portion 1003 protrudes in the horizontal direction at the upper part and the middle of the side surface 1001b (see FIG. 69) that is in close contact with the first side wall 540, and further, the side surface 1001a (not in close contact with the first side wall 540 on the open side) A locking projection 1004 is formed in a protruding manner at the upper end and middle portion of FIG. Screw fixing portions 1003 and locking protrusions 1004 are for attaching the locking device 1000 to the back surface of the main body frame 3, and the locking protrusions 1004 are inserted into the lock locking holes 548 of the main body frame 3 and moved upward ( In this state, since the screw fixing portion 1003 and the lock mounting hole 547 coincide with each other, the locking device 1000 is firmly fixed to the main body frame 3 by screwing a screw (not shown) into the coincident hole. be able to. Note that the locking device 1000 is attached not only to the upper and middle screw fixing portions 1003 but also in the vicinity of the screw fixing portion 1003 formed on the lock mounting piece 1008 described later and the cylinder lock through hole 526. The lower part of the lock device 1000 can also be attached by fixing the lock attachment hole 547 with a screw (not shown).

  In addition, when mounting, the locking projections 1004 formed at the upper, middle, and lower three positions on the open side (front part) of the U-shaped base 1001 are inserted into the locking holes 548 for positioning and locking, and the U-shaped Screw fixing portions 1003 formed at two locations on the closed side (rear portion) of the base body 1001 and screw fixing portions 1003 formed on the open side (front portion) of the U-shaped base body 1001 are formed in the lock mounting holes 547. Since the structure is fixed with screws, the front portion of the locking device 1000 is locked by the locking protrusion 1004 and the locking locking hole 548, and the rear portion of the locking device 1000 is fixed by the screw locking portion 1003 and the lock mounting hole 547. In addition, since the lower portion of the locking device 1000 is fixed by the screw fixing portion 1003 and the lock mounting hole 547, the locking device 1000 can be firmly fixed to the main body frame 3 with an extremely simple structure. In other words, even when the locking device 1000 is configured by concentrating on the U-shaped base 1001 having a very small width, the locking device 1000 is fixed to the main body by locking and fixing the front portion and the rear portion of the locking device 1000. It can be firmly fixed to the frame 3. In particular, in the case of the present embodiment, the locking protrusion 1004 constituting the locking structure (or a fixed structure) at the front portion protrudes from the side surface 1001 a that does not adhere to the first side wall 540 of the U-shaped base body 1001. On the other hand, the screw fixing portion 1003 and the screw fixing portion 1003 constituting the fixing structure of the rear portion are formed so as to protrude in the horizontal direction from the side surface 1001b in close contact with the first side wall 540 of the U-shaped base body 1001. Therefore, the locking device 1000 can be fixed to the main body frame 3 so that the locking structure of the front part is not loosened as compared with the case where the locking structure of the front part is formed on the side surface 1001b in close contact with the first side wall 540. is there.

  Further, insertion holes 1005 are formed in the upper, middle, and lower portions of both side surfaces 1001a and 1001b of the U-shaped base 1001, and the door frame sliding rod 1040 and the body frame sliding rod 1050 are provided in the U-shaped substrate 1001. The door frame sliding rod 1040 and the body frame sliding rod 1050 are slidably attached to the inside of the U-shaped base 1001 by inserting and crimping the rivet 1006 into the insertion hole 1005 in the stored state. it can. That is, one rivet slot 1042 is formed in each of the upper, middle, and lower portions of the door frame sliding rod 1040 and the upper hook member 1051 and the lower hook member 1052 are respectively formed in the main frame sliding rod 1050. By passing the rivet 1006 through the rivet long holes 1055 and 1061, the door frame sliding rod 1040 can move upward, and the main body frame sliding rod 1050 can move downward. Therefore, as shown in FIG. 68 (B), the rivet 1006 penetrates the lower end of the rivet slot 1055, 1061 of the main body frame sliding rod 1050, and as shown in FIG. A rivet 1006 passes through the upper end of the rivet slot 1042 of the sliding rod 1040.

  Further, a tamper-proof notch 1007 is formed on the closed side of the lower portion of the U-shaped base 1001, and at the front end of the side 1001b in close contact with the first side wall 540 of the body frame 3 on the open side. A lock attaching piece 1008 for attaching the cylinder lock 1010 protrudes laterally, and an insertion vertical opening 1020, a spring locking piece 1021, and a clearance lateral hole 1022 are provided on the side face 1001 b in close contact with the first side wall 540.

The thickness of ice can be expressed, and the depth can be strongly felt in a limited space. In addition, the texture formed on the surface prevents the light from the front side from being diffusely reflected and reflected in a planar shape, so that it can be displayed on a flat snow shelf, iceberg shelf, etc. Realistic feelings such as icebergs are increasing.

  As shown in FIGS. 96 to 98, the right middle movable light emitting decorative body 1525 in the light emitting decorative body 1520 includes a pair of first surface forming members 1525a and a pair of first surface forming members arranged side by side in the vertical direction. A second surface forming member 1525b disposed between and on the rear side; a right middle substrate 1525c (see FIG. 97) disposed on the rear side of the second surface forming member 1525b and having a plurality of LEDs 1540 mounted thereon; When the two surface forming members are moved forward, the pair of first surface forming members are separated from each other, and when the second surface forming member is moved backward, the pair of first surface forming members are moved closer to each other. And a moving mechanism 1525d for moving the two surface forming members.

  When the pair of first surface forming members 1525a is opened by the moving mechanism 1525d, the right middle movable light emitting decorative body 1525 appears so that the second surface forming member 1525b protrudes, and when the pair of first surface forming members 1525a is closed. The second surface forming member 1525b can move so as to be retracted and hidden.

  The moving mechanism 1525d of the right middle movable light emitting decorative body 1525 will be described in detail. The moving mechanism 1525d meshes with a motor 1525f having a rotating shaft 1525e, a pinion gear 1525g rotating together with the rotating shaft 1525e of the motor 1525f, and a pinion gear 1525g. A slide member 1525i having a rack gear 1525h and having the right middle substrate 1525c and the second surface forming member 1525b fixed to the front end side, a detection piece 1525j protruding outward from the slide member 1525i, and a slide capable of detecting the detection piece 1525j A position sensor 1525k and a base member 1525l for holding the slide member 1525i so as to be slidable in the front-rear direction and holding the motor 1525f, the slide position sensor 1525k, and the like are provided.

It moves in the direction away from the two-surface forming member 1525b. In this embodiment, since the flange member 1525o and the first surface forming member 1525a are provided so as to face each other with the slide member 1525i interposed therebetween, the slide member 1525i is advanced to form a pair of first surface formations. The member 1525a moves in a direction away from each other, and moves forward with a feeling that the second surface forming member 1525b protrudes from the member 1525a (see FIG. 97A).

  On the other hand, when the slide member 1525i is moved backward by rotating the motor 1525f in the reverse direction, the transmission pin 1525m moves backward, and accordingly, the other end side of the flange member 1525o is also rotated backward. Thus, one end side of the flange member 1525o moves in a direction approaching the slide member 1525i. That is, by moving the slide member 1525i backward, the second surface forming member 1525b moves backward, and the pair of first surface forming members 1525a move in a direction in which they approach each other (see FIG. 97 (B)). .

  In addition, as shown in FIG. 97 (B), when the slide member 1525i moves backward (backward) to a position where the pair of first surface forming members 1525a are closed, the detection piece 1525j formed on the slide member 1525i is The slide position sensor 1525k detects it. In this example, a photo sensor is used as the slide position sensor 1525k.

The one surface forming member 1525a and the moving body assemblies 1526a and 1530a, and the second surface forming member 1525b and the diffusing lens members 1521c and 1523c appearing as the first surface forming member 1525a and the moving body assemblies 1526a and 1530a move are arranged. Therefore, it is possible to give the player an impression that is completely different from a flat picture or image like a conventional pachinko machine, and there is a part that has not changed with previous pachinko machines By changing the shape, coupled with the large game board 4 can attract the player's interest strongly, this pachinko Interest by increasing the expectation for 1 can be suppressed.

  Further, the background of the game board 4 is changed by moving the first surface forming member 1525a and the moving body assemblies 1526a and 1530a arranged on the rear side of the transparent gaming panel 599 by the moving mechanisms 1525d, 1526b and 1530b. Compared to the case where a large liquid crystal display device is placed behind the transparent game board and the background of the game board is changed by the effect image (including moving images), the way of change It is possible to make it easy to understand, and even if a game ball circulates in front of the light-emitting decorative body 1520, it is possible to prevent the game ball from becoming difficult to see and to prevent the interest in the game from being lowered. it can.

  Furthermore, the moving body assemblies 1526a and 1530a can be decorated with light emission by the upper left substrate 1526h and the lower left substrate 1530h, and the moving body assemblies 1526a and 1530a can be moved by the moving mechanisms 1526b and 1530b. With the LED 1540 provided on the board 1530h, the mobile body assemblies 1526a and 1530a can be turned on and blinking, or can emit light in various colors, and the player's interest can be more strongly attracted by the lighting effect. It can suppress that a player's interest falls. Further, since the mobile body assemblies 1526a and 1530a can be decorated with light emission, the mobile body assemblies 1526a and 1530a disposed on the rear side of the transparent game panel 599 can be prevented from being dark and difficult to see. It is possible to further enhance the decoration effect by the body assemblies 1526a and 1530a and suppress the player's interest from decreasing.

  In addition, since the upper left substrate 1526h and the lower left substrate 1530h are provided inside the movable body assemblies 1526a and 1530a, the dimensions of the movable body assemblies 1526a and 1530a in the front-rear direction (depth) are compared with the case where illumination is performed from the front side. Can be made as large as possible, and the shapes of the mobile body assemblies 1526a and 1530a can be made more three-dimensional. The realistic mobile body assemblies 1526a and 1530a can entertain and entertain the player. Can be prevented from decreasing. Further, since the upper left substrate 1526h and the lower left substrate 1530h are arranged on the rear side of the holding members 1526g and 1530g, the LED 1540 can be arranged as far back as possible, and the distance between the LED 1540 and the front surface of the front surface forming members 1526e and 1530e is reduced. Can be made as large as possible, and the light source of the LED 1540 that emits light in the form of dots can be made inconspicuous.

  Further, since the LED 1540 emits light on the rear side of the front surface shape members 1526e and 1530e, it is possible to prevent the surface shape of the front surface shape members 1526e and 1530e from being emphasized, which is imitated by the front surface shape members 1526e and 1530e. The ice that has translucency as a predetermined object can reproduce not only the shape but also the texture of the ice, making the player more entertaining by the more realistic front shape members 1526e and 1530e Can be suppressed.

  Further, the second surface forming member 1525b and the diffusing lens members 1521c and 1523c appear or disappear as the first surface forming member 1525a and the moving body assemblies 1525a and 1530a move by the moving mechanisms 1525d, 1526b, and 1530b. Therefore, the shape decoration aspect of the game board 4 can be greatly changed, the player's interest can be attracted more, and the expectation for the game can be given by the change of the decoration aspect. Therefore, it is possible to suppress the player's interest from decreasing due to the expectation. Further, since the colors of the second surface forming member 1525b and the diffuser lens members 1521c and 1523c are different from those of the first surface forming member 1525a and the moving body assemblies 1525a and 1530a, the second mechanisms 1525d, 1526b and 1530b use the first color. Due to the movement of the one surface forming member 1525a and the moving body assemblies 1525a and 1530a, the second surface forming member 1525b and the diffusing lens members 1521c and 1523c having different colors appear. At first glance, the decoration mode of the light emitting decorative body 1520 has changed. Can be recognized by the player, and the player's interest can be strongly attracted.

  Further, the surface forming member 1521a of the light emitting decorative body 1520 is made substantially the same color as an iceberg or glacier as a predetermined object, and the LED 1540 arranged on the rear side thereof emits light substantially the same color or white as the predetermined object. Therefore, the surface forming member 1521a and the like emit light with a feeling similar to a predetermined object, the surface forming member 1521a and the like become more realistic, and the appeal to the player is increased, and the player's interest is increased. Can attract strongly.

  Furthermore, in a conventional pachinko machine, a three-dimensional surface forming member 1521a and the like are arranged through a transparent game panel 599 at a position where a planar picture or image can be visually recognized in the game area. It is possible to give a player an impression different from the conventional pachinko machine, the pachinko machine 1 can be greatly differentiated from other pachinko machines, and the pachinko machine 1 can be used as a pachinko machine for gaming. The possibility of selecting can be increased.

  In addition, the surface forming member 1521a and the like disposed on the rear side of the game panel 599 is a light emitting decorative body 1520 that emits light of a predetermined color by the light emission of the LED 1540, so that the light emission simply blinks or the color changes. As compared with the case where a moving image is displayed as in a conventional pachinko machine, it is possible to prevent the game balls flowing down the front of the game panel 599 from being difficult to see and the game balls are difficult to see. It is possible to prevent the player's interest from being reduced due to the situation.

  Further, since the model of the pachinko machine 1 can be characterized by the three-dimensional surface forming member 1521a or the like disposed on the rear side of the game panel 599, the model is characterized in the game area like the conventional pachinko machine. It is not necessary to separately arrange an object with a characteristic shape or a decorative body for the purpose, and it is possible to suppress the narrowing of the basin of the game ball by them, and the movement of the game ball becomes monotonous. It is possible to prevent the interest of the player from being reduced.

  In addition, since a multi-faceted prism or grain is formed on the surface of the surface forming member 1521a or the like, even if the surface forming member 1521a or the like is made of a highly transparent material, the player can follow the surface forming member 1521a or the like from the player side. It is difficult to recognize the member on the side, and when the LED 1540 is not emitting light, each of the light emitting decoration substrates 1541 and the like arranged on the rear side of the surface forming member 1521a, etc. It can be prevented that the real feeling of the surface forming member 1521a and the like is lowered and the interest of the player is lowered.

  Furthermore, since the depth of the game board installation recess 510 can be increased, the depth from the rear side of the panel holder 600, that is, the back unit 1500 can be increased. As a result, the surface forming member 1521a or the like having a large depth can be used, or the distance between the surface forming member 1521a or the like and each substrate 1541 for light emitting decoration can be increased, and more realistic light emission that more closely resembles a predetermined object. The decorative body 1520 can be easily implemented, and the pachinko machine 1 that can attract the player's interest and prevent the interest from deteriorating can be provided.

  In addition, since the game board 4 can be enlarged, even if the display area of the effect image by the liquid crystal display device 640 is widened, the movement of the game ball and the effect image are suppressed while the basin of the game ball is reduced. Both of the above can be enjoyed together, and the game area 605 of the game board 4 can be enlarged to give various movements to the flowing game balls, and a large movable accessory or decorative body (movable decorative body). ) Etc. can be arranged to make the pachinko machine 1 more entertaining and entertaining the player.
