Description

この発明は、図柄表示装置で図柄組み合わせゲームやリーチ演出等の遊技演出を行なう遊技機に関するものである。   The present invention relates to a gaming machine that performs a game effect such as a symbol combination game or a reach effect on a symbol display device.

代表的な遊技機であるパチンコ機は、機内にセットされる遊技盤の盤面に画成した遊技領域の略中央位置に枠状の装飾部材が配設されて、該装飾部材の窓口から遊技盤の裏側に配設した液晶式やドラム式等の図柄表示装置を臨ませ、この図柄表示装置で図柄組み合わせゲームやリーチ演出等の遊技演出を行なうよう構成されている。またパチンコ機では、図柄表示装置における表示部の前側を移動する動作を行なう可動体を備えた演出装置を遊技盤に配設し、該可動体を前記図柄表示装置で行なわれる遊技演出に合わせて表示部の前側で動作させることにより、視覚的な演出効果を向上させ、遊技の興趣を増大するようにしたパチンコ機が知られている(例えば、特許文献1参照)。   A pachinko machine, which is a typical gaming machine, has a frame-shaped decorative member disposed at a substantially central position of a gaming area defined on a board surface of a gaming board set in the gaming machine. A symbol display device such as a liquid crystal type or a drum type is provided on the back side of the player, and the symbol display device is configured to perform a game effect such as a symbol combination game or a reach effect. In addition, in the pachinko machine, an effect device including a movable body that performs an operation of moving the front side of the display unit in the symbol display device is disposed on the game board, and the movable body is adapted to the game effect performed on the symbol display device. There is known a pachinko machine that is operated on the front side of the display unit to improve the visual effect and increase the interest of the game (for example, see Patent Document 1).

一方、前記図柄表示装置の裏側には、該図柄表示装置の表示を制御する制御基板を備える表示制御装置や、図柄表示装置に電力を供給するインバータ基板を備えるインバータ装置、あるいは表示制御装置に演出用の制御信号を出力すると共にパチンコ機に配設される前記演出装置や発光装置等の各種電気部品を制御する制御基板を備える統括制御装置が配設されている。この場合に、図柄表示装置の裏側における制御装置等を配設し得る領域は限られているため、一部の制御装置等(例えば表示制御装置と統括制御装置)を前後に重ね合わせて配設している(例えば、特許文献2参照)。   On the other hand, on the back side of the symbol display device, a display control device including a control board that controls display of the symbol display device, an inverter device including an inverter substrate that supplies power to the symbol display device, or a display control device There is provided a general control device provided with a control board that outputs various control signals and controls various electrical components such as the rendering device and the light emitting device provided in the pachinko machine. In this case, since the area where the control device etc. can be arranged on the back side of the symbol display device is limited, some control devices etc. (e.g. display control device and general control device) are overlapped in front and back. (For example, see Patent Document 2).

近年では、視覚的な演出効果を一層高めるために、複数の演出装置を遊技盤に配設する傾向にある。この場合に、インパクトのある演出を行なうべく可動体を大型化すると、複数の可動体が表示部の前側を移動する際に相互に干渉しないようするために、各可動体の移動経路を前後に離間するように配置する必要があり、表示部の前側に必要となる前後寸法が大きくなる。またパチンコ機では、前述したように図柄表示装置の裏側に複数の制御装置等が前後に重ね合わせて配設されているため、図柄表示装置の裏側に必要となる前後寸法も大きなものであった。   In recent years, there is a tendency to arrange a plurality of effect devices on a game board in order to further enhance the visual effect. In this case, if the movable body is enlarged in order to produce an impact, the movement paths of the movable bodies are moved back and forth so that the plurality of movable bodies do not interfere with each other when moving on the front side of the display unit. It is necessary to arrange so that it may space apart, and the front-back dimension required for the front side of a display part will become large. Further, in the pachinko machine, as described above, since a plurality of control devices and the like are arranged on the back side of the symbol display device, the front and rear dimensions required on the back side of the symbol display device are large. .

ここで、パチンコ機を遊技場(所謂ホール)に設置するに際しては、各パチンコ機の裏側を夫々対向する状態で設置台に取り付けるため、パチンコ機の裏側に突出し得る大きさは限られている。前述のように、図柄表示装置の裏側に複数の制御装置等を前後に重ね合わせて設置する構成では、図柄表示装置の裏側における前後方向の寸法が大きくなっているため、複数の演出装置を配設する構成を採用しようとすると、パチンコ機全体としての前後方向の奥行き寸法の更なる増大を招くため、図柄表示装置の裏側に配設した制御装置等が対向配置したパチンコ機と干渉してしまう畏れがある。すなわち、複数の演出装置を遊技盤に配設して、インパクトのある演出を行なうことが困難であるのが実状である。   Here, when the pachinko machine is installed in a game hall (so-called hall), the back side of each pachinko machine is attached to the installation base in a state of being opposed to each other, so that the size that can protrude to the back side of the pachinko machine is limited. As described above, in a configuration in which a plurality of control devices and the like are installed on the back side of the symbol display device in the front-rear direction, the size in the front-rear direction on the back side of the symbol display device is large. If the configuration is installed, the depth of the front and rear direction of the entire pachinko machine will be further increased, so that the control device, etc., arranged on the back side of the symbol display device will interfere with the pachinko machine arranged oppositely. There is drowning. That is, in reality, it is difficult to arrange a plurality of effect devices on the game board and perform an effect with an impact.

すなわち本発明は、従来の技術に係る遊技機に内在する前記課題に鑑み、これを好適に解決するべく提案されたものであって、図柄表示装置の裏側に必要となる前後方向の寸法を小さく抑えることができる遊技機を提供することを目的とする。   That is, the present invention has been proposed to solve this problem in view of the above-mentioned problems inherent in gaming machines according to the prior art, and the dimensions in the front-rear direction required on the back side of the symbol display device are reduced. It is an object to provide a gaming machine that can be suppressed.

〔実施例の作用〕
次に、前述した実施例に係るパチンコ機の作用につき説明する。
(Effects of Example)
Next, the operation of the pachinko machine according to the above-described embodiment will be described.

前記遊技領域18aに打ち出されたパチンコ球は、前記装飾部材26の外周囲を流下し、該パチンコ球が前記球通路部28に通入すると、該パチンコ球は前記ステージ27に通出され、該ステージ27を左右に転動した後に遊技領域18aに排出され、このパチンコ球は始動入賞装置23や普通入賞装置25等に入賞可能となる。そして、始動入賞装置23にパチンコ球が入賞すると、前記統括制御装置62からの制御信号に基づいて前記表示制御装置61により制御される前記図柄表示装置13の図柄が変動開始され、所要の図柄組合わせゲームが展開される。そして、前記図柄表示装置13で展開される図柄変動ゲームの結果、図柄表示装置13に所定の図柄組合わせで図柄が停止表示されたときに、前記特別入賞装置24が入賞口を開放して所謂大当りが発生し、多数の賞球の獲得が可能となる。   The pachinko balls launched into the game area 18a flow down the outer periphery of the decorative member 26, and when the pachinko balls enter the ball passage portion 28, the pachinko balls pass through the stage 27, and After rolling the stage 27 to the left and right, it is discharged to the game area 18a, and this pachinko ball can be awarded to the start winning device 23, the normal winning device 25, or the like. When the pachinko ball wins the start winning device 23, the symbol of the symbol display device 13 controlled by the display control device 61 is started to change based on a control signal from the overall control device 62, and a required symbol set is obtained. Matching game is developed. Then, as a result of the symbol variation game developed on the symbol display device 13, when the symbols are stopped and displayed on the symbol display device 13 in a predetermined symbol combination, the special winning device 24 opens the winning opening so-called. A big hit occurs, and a large number of prize balls can be obtained.

また、前記図柄表示装置13で展開される図柄変動ゲームの演出に応じて、前記可動演出装置29,30,35,36,37が、統括制御装置62により作動制御されて、各可動体29a,30a,35a,36a,37aが作動されて動的な演出により遊技の興趣が高められる。また、遊技盤17に配設されている各種発光装置等も、図柄変動ゲームの演出に応じて統括制御装置62からの制御信号に基づいて発光制御されて、発光による演出により遊技の興趣が向上される。なお、前記装飾部材26や裏ユニット19に配設された各可動演出装置29,35,36,37は、夫々の可動体29a,35a,36a,37aの移動経路が前後に離間して相互に干渉しないよう構成してあるから、複数の可動体29a,35a,36a,37aを同時または所定の組合わせで図柄表示装置13における表示部の前側を移動させることで、インパクトのある演出がなされ、遊技の興趣が向上する。   Further, according to the effect of the symbol variation game developed on the symbol display device 13, the movable effect devices 29, 30, 35, 36, and 37 are controlled by the overall control device 62 so that each movable body 29a, 30a, 35a, 36a, and 37a are activated, and the entertainment of the game is enhanced by dynamic production. In addition, various light emitting devices and the like disposed on the game board 17 are also controlled to emit light based on a control signal from the overall control device 62 in accordance with the effect of the symbol variation game. Is done. The movable effect devices 29, 35, 36, and 37 disposed on the decorative member 26 and the back unit 19 are arranged so that the movement paths of the movable members 29 a, 35 a, 36 a, and 37 a are spaced apart from each other. Since it is configured so as not to interfere, a plurality of movable bodies 29a, 35a, 36a, and 37a are moved simultaneously or in a predetermined combination to move the front side of the display unit in the symbol display device 13, thereby producing an impact effect. The fun of gaming is improved.

前記裏ユニット19の装着部38に取付けられている図柄表示装置13では、液晶パネル43が収容されているケース44の右側縁部に基板収容部48が設けられ、該基板収容部48に、前記インバータ基板49が縦置き姿勢で収容されている。すなわち、従来図柄表示装置13の裏面(ケース裏面)に取付けられていたインバータ装置(インバータ基板をケースに収容したもの)をケース44の右側縁部に配置することで、ケース裏面におけるその他の装置を配設するためのスペースを広く取ることが可能となった。従って、表示制御装置61および統括制御装置62を前後に重ね合わせることなく、図3および図4に示す如く、図柄表示装置13の裏面(ケース裏面)に表示制御装置61と統括制御装置62とを左右方向に並べて取付けることができ、複数の制御装置を前後に重ね合わせた場合に比べて、図柄表示装置13の裏側に必要となる前後寸法を小さく抑えることができる。すなわち、パチンコ機全体の前後寸法を変えない条件においては、図柄表示装置13の裏側に必要となる前後方向の寸法を小さく抑えることができる分(前後寸法が小さい統括制御装置62の前後寸法分)だけ、図柄表示装置13における表示部の前側に寸法的な余裕ができ、実施例のように表示部の前側を移動する可動体29a,35a,36a,37aを備える可動演出装置29,35,36,37を複数配設することができ、インパクトのある演出が可能となる。   In the symbol display device 13 attached to the mounting portion 38 of the back unit 19, a substrate accommodating portion 48 is provided on the right edge of the case 44 in which the liquid crystal panel 43 is accommodated. The inverter board 49 is accommodated in a vertical posture. That is, the inverter device (in which the inverter board is accommodated in the case) that has been attached to the back surface (case back surface) of the conventional symbol display device 13 is arranged at the right edge of the case 44, so that other devices on the case back surface can be used. It became possible to take a wide space for the arrangement. Therefore, without overlapping the display control device 61 and the overall control device 62, the display control device 61 and the overall control device 62 are placed on the back surface (case back surface) of the symbol display device 13 as shown in FIGS. The front and rear dimensions required on the back side of the symbol display device 13 can be reduced compared to the case where a plurality of control devices are overlapped in the front-rear direction. That is, under the condition that the front-rear dimension of the entire pachinko machine is not changed, the dimension in the front-rear direction required on the back side of the symbol display device 13 can be kept small (the front-rear dimension of the general control device 62 having a smaller front-rear dimension). Only in the symbol display device 13, there is a dimensional allowance on the front side of the display unit, and the movable effect devices 29, 35, 36 including the movable bodies 29a, 35a, 36a, 37a that move on the front side of the display unit as in the embodiment. , 37 can be arranged in a plurality, and an effect with impact can be achieved.

また、前記基板収容部48に内部画成される基板用空間S2の前部は、図10および図11に示す如く、ケース44に内部画成されて液晶パネル43が収容される表示用空間S1と左右方向に重なるように構成されて、該基板用空間S2に収容されるインバータ基板49の前端部も表示用空間S1に左右方向で重なっている。従って、インバータ基板49は、短手方向において表示用空間S1と左右方向に重なる分だけ、基板後端のケース裏面から後方への突出寸法を短かくすることができ、基板収容部48のために図柄表示装置13の裏側に必要となる前後寸法を小さく抑えることができる。   Further, as shown in FIGS. 10 and 11, the front portion of the substrate space S2 defined in the substrate accommodating portion 48 is internally defined in the case 44 and the display space S1 in which the liquid crystal panel 43 is accommodated. The front end portion of the inverter board 49 accommodated in the board space S2 also overlaps the display space S1 in the left-right direction. Therefore, the inverter board 49 can shorten the rearward projecting dimension from the back of the case at the rear end of the board by an amount that overlaps the display space S1 in the lateral direction in the short side direction. The front and rear dimensions required for the back side of the symbol display device 13 can be kept small.

更に、前記基板収容部48に収容されるインバータ基板49を、図10または図11に示す如く、前側から後側に向かうにつれて表示用空間S1側に傾斜する姿勢となるように固定板52で係合保持するよう構成したから、基板収容部48の後方への突出寸法をより抑制することができる。そして、実施例では、基板収容部48の後端(後ケース体51の後端)を、前記ケース44の設置部60に取付けられている内で前後方向の寸法が大きい方の表示制御装置61の後端と略同一位置に臨むよう構成でき(図4,図5参照)、基板収容部48が表示制御装置61より後方に突出することで、図柄表示装置13の裏側に必要となる前後寸法が大きくなることはない。言い替えるなら、図柄表示装置13の裏側に必要となる前後寸法は、該図柄表示装置13に配設される制御装置の内で最大の前後寸法を有する表示制御装置61の前後寸法で足りることになる。   Further, as shown in FIG. 10 or FIG. 11, the inverter board 49 accommodated in the board accommodating portion 48 is engaged with the fixing plate 52 so as to be inclined toward the display space S1 side from the front side toward the rear side. Since they are configured to be held together, the rearward projecting dimension of the substrate housing portion 48 can be further suppressed. In the embodiment, the display control device 61 having the larger dimension in the front-rear direction among the rear end (the rear end of the rear case body 51) attached to the installation portion 60 of the case 44 is used. It can be configured so as to face substantially the same position as the rear end (see FIGS. 4 and 5), and the substrate housing portion 48 protrudes rearward from the display control device 61, so that the front and rear dimensions are required on the back side of the symbol display device 13. Will never grow. In other words, the front-rear dimension required for the back side of the symbol display device 13 is sufficient for the front-rear dimension of the display control device 61 having the largest front-rear dimension among the control devices disposed in the symbol display device 13. .

前記基板収容部48に収容されているインバータ基板49と、前記表示制御装置61の基板とを接続する配線63は、図8に示す如く、前記ケース44の裏面における設置部60に形成した溝部60a内を引き回されている。すなわち、基板収容部48と表示制御装置61との間の設置部60に取付けられる前記統括制御装置62が、配線63をケース44との間で挟み込むのを防止するために統括制御装置62とケース裏面とを離間させる必要はなく、該統括制御装置62の後方への突出寸法を小さくし得る。また、前記配線63を引き回す領域を、統括制御装置62の設置領域外に確保する必要がないから、ケース44の裏面のスペースを有効に利用し得る。更に、統括制御装置62をケース44に着脱する際に配線63を引っ掛けることを防止し得ると共に、統括制御装置62を設置部60に取付けた状態では配線63の後側は該統括制御装置62で覆われるから該配線63を保護することができる。また、基板収容部48と表示制御装置61との間の設置部60に統括制御装置62を取付ける構成により、該統括制御装置62をケース44に着脱する際に両側の基板収容部48および表示制御装置61で案内することができ、着脱作業が容易となる。   As shown in FIG. 8, the wiring 63 for connecting the inverter board 49 accommodated in the substrate accommodating part 48 and the substrate of the display control device 61 is a groove part 60a formed in the installation part 60 on the back surface of the case 44. Has been routed around. That is, in order to prevent the overall control device 62 attached to the installation portion 60 between the substrate housing portion 48 and the display control device 61 from sandwiching the wiring 63 between the case 44 and the overall control device 62 and the case. There is no need to separate the back surface, and the rearward projecting dimension of the overall control device 62 can be reduced. In addition, since it is not necessary to secure an area around the wiring 63 outside the installation area of the overall control device 62, the space on the back surface of the case 44 can be used effectively. Further, it is possible to prevent the wiring 63 from being caught when the overall control device 62 is attached to and detached from the case 44, and when the overall control device 62 is attached to the installation portion 60, the rear side of the wiring 63 is the overall control device 62. Since the wiring 63 is covered, the wiring 63 can be protected. In addition, since the overall control device 62 is attached to the installation portion 60 between the substrate housing portion 48 and the display control device 61, the substrate housing portion 48 and the display control on both sides when the overall control device 62 is attached to and detached from the case 44. It can guide with the apparatus 61, and attachment or detachment work becomes easy.

なお、実施例では前記基板収容部48に収容されたインバータ基板49と液晶パネル43とを接続する配線の余裕部分を、前記後ケース体51の脚部59とケース本体45の凹部45bとの間に画成される配線用空間に収容するよう構成したから、該配線の余裕部分を保護し得る。また、凹部45bに嵌合した脚部59の後端は、前記設置部69の後端より後方に突出しないよう設定されているから、該脚部59の後側も制御装置等の設置領域として利用することが可能となり、ケース裏面のスペースを有効に利用することができる。   In the embodiment, a margin part of the wiring connecting the inverter board 49 accommodated in the board accommodating part 48 and the liquid crystal panel 43 is provided between the leg part 59 of the rear case body 51 and the concave part 45 b of the case main body 45. Since it is configured to be accommodated in the wiring space defined in (1), the surplus portion of the wiring can be protected. Further, since the rear end of the leg portion 59 fitted in the recess 45b is set so as not to protrude rearward from the rear end of the installation portion 69, the rear side of the leg portion 59 is also used as an installation area for the control device or the like. It becomes possible to use it, and the space on the back side of the case can be used effectively.

前記基板収容部48は、図柄表示装置13を裏ユニット19に固定するために設けられた固定部46b,46bの間において、該固定部46b,46bより外側方に突出しないように設けてあるから、該基板収容部48を設けることでケース44の外側方への寸法が増大することはない。すなわち、ケース44に基板収容部48を設けた実施例の図柄表示装置13の左右方向の寸法は、従来のケースを用いた図柄表示装置の左右方向の寸法と変わらず、図柄表示装置13を裏ユニット19に取付けるための構成を変更することなく対応し得る。また、基板収容部48を構成する前記後ケース体51における外側壁51bを、前記インバータ基板49の傾斜姿勢に合わせて前側から後側に向かうにつれて表示用空間S1側に傾斜させたことで、ケース44の裏面より後側での基板収容部48の外側方への突出寸法をより抑制することができる。   The board accommodating portion 48 is provided so as not to protrude outward from the fixing portions 46b and 46b between the fixing portions 46b and 46b provided for fixing the symbol display device 13 to the back unit 19. By providing the substrate housing portion 48, the dimension of the case 44 toward the outside does not increase. That is, the horizontal dimension of the symbol display device 13 of the embodiment in which the substrate housing portion 48 is provided in the case 44 is the same as the horizontal dimension of the symbol display device using the conventional case, and the symbol display device 13 is It can respond without changing the structure for attaching to the unit 19. Further, the outer wall 51b of the rear case body 51 constituting the substrate housing portion 48 is inclined to the display space S1 side from the front side toward the rear side in accordance with the inclination posture of the inverter substrate 49, thereby The protrusion dimension of the substrate accommodating portion 48 on the rear side from the back surface of the substrate 44 can be further suppressed.

ここで、前記表示制御装置61や統括制御装置62を構成するケースは、収容されている基板に実装された電子部品が正規品であるか否かを外部から確認するために透明に形成されている。この場合に、実施例のように図柄表示装置13の裏面に制御装置61,62を前後に重ね合わせない構成であれば、外枠11に対して中枠12を開放した状態で、何れの制御装置61,62も取外すことなく両制御装置61,62の内部を目視により確認することができ、確認作業が容易となる利点もある。   Here, the case constituting the display control device 61 and the overall control device 62 is formed to be transparent so as to confirm from the outside whether or not the electronic component mounted on the accommodated board is a genuine product. Yes. In this case, as long as the control devices 61 and 62 are not overlapped on the back and front of the symbol display device 13 as in the embodiment, any control can be performed with the middle frame 12 opened with respect to the outer frame 11. The inside of both the control devices 61 and 62 can be visually confirmed without removing the devices 61 and 62, and there is also an advantage that the confirmation work becomes easy.
