Description

この発明は、ステージを有する遊技盤を備えた遊技機に関するものである。   The present invention relates to a gaming machine including a gaming board having a stage.
例えば遊技機の代表例の一つ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装飾体(所謂センター役物)が配設されており、この枠状装飾体の開口部を介して複数の図柄を変動表示して図柄変動演出を行なう液晶式やドラム式等の図柄表示装置を後方から臨ませると共に、該遊技盤における枠状装飾体の下方位置に、図柄表示装置の変動開始条件としての始動入賞装置(入賞装置)を配設するよう構成したものが多数提案されている。そして、この種の遊技機では、前記遊技領域に打ち出されたパチンコ球(遊技球)が前記始動入賞装置に入賞することにより、前記図柄表示装置で図柄変動演出が開始されてリーチ演出等の各種の遊技演出がなされ、該図柄表示装置に図柄が所定の組み合わせ(例えば同一図柄の3つ揃い)で停止すると、遊技者に有利な所謂大当りが発生するようになっている。   For example, a pachinko machine, which is one of the representative examples of gaming machines, has a frame-shaped decorative body (so-called center accessory) disposed at a substantially central position of a gaming area defined on a board surface of a gaming board set in the machine. And through the opening of the frame-shaped decorative body, a symbol display device such as a liquid crystal type or a drum type that displays a plurality of symbols in a variably displayed manner is faced from the rear, and the frame-shaped decoration on the game board Many proposals have been made in which a start winning device (winning device) as a variation start condition of the symbol display device is disposed below the body. In this type of gaming machine, when the pachinko ball (game ball) launched into the gaming area wins the start winning device, the symbol display effect is started on the symbol display device, and various types of reach effects, etc. When the symbols are displayed on the symbol display device in a predetermined combination (for example, a set of three identical symbols), a so-called jackpot that is advantageous to the player is generated.
このように、大当りが発生するためには、前記始動入賞装置へのパチンコ球の入賞が必要とされることから、遊技者は、前記図柄表示装置での図柄変動演出と同様に、始動入賞装置へのパチンコ球の入賞に対しても大きな関心を持っている。そこで、前記枠状装飾体の下縁部に、パチンコ球が左右方向に転動可能な所謂ステージを設けると共に、遊技領域に開口すると共にステージに連通する球案内通路を前記枠状装飾体に設けて、該球案内通路を介して遊技領域を流下するパチンコ球をステージに一旦受け入れて、パチンコ球をステージ上で転動させた後に遊技領域へ排出させることで、パチンコ球の動きに対する遊技者の興味を高めるよう構成されたパチンコ機も多数提案されている(特許文献1参照)。   In this way, in order to generate a big hit, it is necessary to win a pachinko ball to the start winning device, so the player can start start winning device in the same way as the symbol variation effect on the symbol display device. He is also very interested in winning the pachinko ball. Therefore, a so-called stage in which the pachinko ball can roll in the left-right direction is provided at the lower edge of the frame-shaped decorative body, and a ball guide passage that opens to the game area and communicates with the stage is provided in the frame-shaped decorative body. The pachinko ball flowing down the game area through the ball guide passage is once received on the stage, and after the pachinko ball rolls on the stage and is discharged to the game area, the player's movement against the pachinko ball movement Many pachinko machines configured to increase interest have also been proposed (see Patent Document 1).
特開2006−296837号JP 2006-296837 A
また、近年のパチンコ機では、前述のように図柄表示装置で図柄変動演出を行なうだけでなく、特許文献1のように枠状装飾体の開口に臨むように可動演出装置を配設して、該図柄表示装置に表示される演出に合わせて可動演出装置の可動部材を動作させて、遊技の興趣を一層高めるよう構成されたパチンコ機も多数存在している。ここで、前記遊技領域を流下するパチンコ球が前記球案内通路により案内されてステージ上に到来する場合には、該球案内通路を通過する過程でステージ形状に沿って転動し得るようパチンコ球が誘導されることから、当該パチンコ球が予期しない方向に移動することはない。一方で、前記ステージ上には、前記遊技領域を流下する過程において遊技盤に植設された遊技釘に接触して弾かれたパチンコ球が到来することもある。   Further, in recent pachinko machines, not only the symbol display effect is provided by the symbol display device as described above, but also a movable effect device is provided so as to face the opening of the frame-shaped decorative body as in Patent Document 1, There are also many pachinko machines configured to further enhance the fun of the game by operating the movable member of the movable effect device in accordance with the effect displayed on the symbol display device. Here, when the pachinko ball flowing down the game area is guided by the ball guide passage and arrives on the stage, the pachinko ball can roll along the stage shape while passing through the ball guide passage. Therefore, the pachinko sphere does not move in an unexpected direction. On the other hand, a pachinko ball bounced in contact with a game nail implanted in the game board in the process of flowing down the game area may arrive on the stage.
ここで、弾かれたパチンコ球が可動演出装置の設置領域に侵入すると、可動部材を動作させた際にパチンコ球が噛み込まれて故障や損傷等する虞がある。このため、特許文献1のように遊技釘に接触して弾かれたパチンコ球が侵入不可能な位置に可動演出装置を設置して、可動演出装置の設置領域へのパチンコ球の侵入を防止するよう構成される。しかしながら、この場合には、可動演出装置の設置位置が大幅に限定されることに繋がり、遊技演出の多様化を図れない問題が指摘される。   Here, if the bounced pachinko ball enters the installation area of the movable effect device, the pachinko ball may be bitten when the movable member is operated and may be damaged or damaged. For this reason, as shown in Patent Document 1, a movable effect device is installed at a position where a pachinko ball bounced by contact with a game nail cannot enter, thereby preventing the pachinko ball from entering the installation area of the movable effect device. It is configured as follows. However, in this case, the installation position of the movable effect device is greatly limited, and there is a problem that the game effect cannot be diversified.
一方、弾かれたパチンコ球の可動演出装置の設置領域への侵入を防止する別の構成として、枠状装飾体の後方開口部を全面的に透明薄板で塞ぐと共に、該透明薄板の後方に可動演出装置を設置することで、遊技領域を流下する過程で弾かれたパチンコ球が枠状装飾体の後方開口から可動演出装置の設置領域へ移動するのを防止する構成が採用される。しかしながら、この構成では透明薄板が図柄表示装置も全面的に覆うことになり、パチンコ球の接触や経年劣化等により透明薄板の透明度が低下すると、図柄表示装置の視認性が低下し、遊技の興趣を損なうことになる欠点を内在している。しかも、透明薄板の裏面側(図柄表示装置との対向面側)に付着した汚れを除去するのは容易ではないため、枠状装飾体の後方開口部を全面的に透明薄板で塞ぐと汚れが付着した状態で遊技に供される原因ともなり改善が強く望まれている。   On the other hand, as another configuration for preventing the bounced pachinko ball from entering the installation area of the movable effect device, the rear opening of the frame-shaped decorative body is entirely covered with a transparent thin plate and is movable behind the transparent thin plate. By installing the effect device, a configuration is employed in which a pachinko ball bounced in the process of flowing down the game area is prevented from moving from the rear opening of the frame-shaped decorative body to the installation region of the movable effect device. However, in this configuration, the transparent thin plate covers the entire surface of the symbol display device, and if the transparency of the transparent thin plate decreases due to contact with pachinko balls or aging, etc., the visibility of the symbol display device decreases, and the entertainment of the game is enhanced. There are inherent disadvantages that will undermine. Moreover, it is not easy to remove the dirt adhering to the back side of the transparent thin plate (the side facing the symbol display device), so if the rear opening of the frame-shaped decorative body is completely covered with the transparent thin plate, the dirt is removed. There is a strong demand for improvement as it causes the game to be attached to the game.
そこで本発明は、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、可動演出装置の設置領域への遊技球の侵入を防止すると共に図柄表示装置の視認性を良好な状態に保つことができる遊技機を提供することを目的とする。   Accordingly, the present invention has been proposed to solve this problem in view of the above-described problems inherent in the gaming machine according to the prior art, and prevents the game ball from entering the installation area of the movable effect device. In addition, an object is to provide a gaming machine capable of maintaining the visibility of the symbol display device in a good state.

ここで、前記第2可動部材81を構成する回転支持部82の歯車部83は、前記第1可動部材80を構成する回転支持部82の歯車部83と噛合するよう構成されている。そして、前記駆動モータ120を駆動して前記従動歯車123を回転した際に、前記第1可動部材80が初期位置および可動位置の間で回転されるのに連動して第2可動部材81が初期位置および可動位置の間で回転されるよう構成される。また、前記第2可動部材81の回転支持部82には、前記装置本体71に設けた前記位置検出センサ124により検出される位置検出片87が径方向外方に突出するよう設けられている。すなわち、前記第2可動部材81に設けた位置検出片87を位置検出センサ124が検出することで、両可動部材80,81の初期位置が制御手段に認識されるようになっている。   Here, the gear portion 83 of the rotation support portion 82 constituting the second movable member 81 is configured to mesh with the gear portion 83 of the rotation support portion 82 constituting the first movable member 80. When the drive motor 120 is driven and the driven gear 123 is rotated, the second movable member 81 is initialized in conjunction with the first movable member 80 being rotated between the initial position and the movable position. It is configured to be rotated between a position and a movable position. A position detecting piece 87 detected by the position detecting sensor 124 provided in the apparatus main body 71 is provided on the rotation support portion 82 of the second movable member 81 so as to protrude radially outward. That is, when the position detection sensor 124 detects the position detection piece 87 provided on the second movable member 81, the initial position of both the movable members 80 and 81 is recognized by the control means.
また、図14に示すように、前記回転支持部82の前面には、前記歯車部83の外周縁近傍に、周方向に離間する位置に一対の突起部85,85が前方へ向けて突出するよう形成されている。そして、前記支持筒部84の軸支持孔84aに前記可動軸72aを挿通した際に、前記装置本体71(カバー部材73)の円筒状部75に収容される前記捻りバネ79が支持突部76aに外挿されると共に、捻りバネ79の端部が突起部85,85の間に形成される第2係止溝85aに差し込まれて係止されるようになっている。ここで、前記第1および第2可動部材80,81を初期位置に回転させた状態においては、前記装置本体71(カバー部材73)に形成された第1係止溝77aおよび該第1および第2可動部材80,81(回転支持部82)に形成された第2係止溝85aの夫々に係止された捻りバネ79が弾性的に変形されて、該第1および第2可動部材80,81を可動位置に向けて付勢するよう構成される。すなわち、前記第1および第2可動部材80,81を初期位置から可動位置に向けて回転する際には、前記捻りバネ79が対応の可動部材80,81を可動位置に向けて付勢することで、前記駆動モータ120に掛かる負荷を軽減している。なお、各可動部材80,81を可動位置から初期位置に向けて回転する際には、可動部材80,81が自重により捻りバネ79の弾性力に抗して初期位置に移動しようとする力が作用することから、前記駆動モータ120に掛かる負荷が過大になることはない。   Further, as shown in FIG. 14, a pair of protrusions 85, 85 protrudes forward on the front surface of the rotation support portion 82 in the vicinity of the outer peripheral edge of the gear portion 83 at positions spaced apart in the circumferential direction. It is formed as follows. When the movable shaft 72a is inserted into the shaft support hole 84a of the support cylinder portion 84, the torsion spring 79 accommodated in the cylindrical portion 75 of the apparatus main body 71 (cover member 73) is supported by the support protrusion 76a. And the end of the torsion spring 79 is inserted and locked into a second locking groove 85a formed between the projections 85 and 85. Here, in a state where the first and second movable members 80 and 81 are rotated to the initial positions, the first locking groove 77a formed in the apparatus main body 71 (cover member 73) and the first and second movable members 80 and 81 are rotated. The torsion springs 79 that are locked in the second locking grooves 85a formed in the two movable members 80 and 81 (rotation support portion 82) are elastically deformed, and the first and second movable members 80 and It is comprised so that 81 may be biased toward a movable position. That is, when the first and second movable members 80 and 81 are rotated from the initial position toward the movable position, the torsion spring 79 biases the corresponding movable members 80 and 81 toward the movable position. Thus, the load applied to the drive motor 120 is reduced. When the movable members 80 and 81 are rotated from the movable position toward the initial position, the movable members 80 and 81 are forced to move to the initial position against the elastic force of the torsion spring 79 by their own weight. As a result, the load applied to the drive motor 120 does not become excessive.

(第2光拡散部107について)
前記第2光拡散部107は、図19に示すように、前記収容凹部105における各凹部反射面105aに対して、各凹部反射面105aでの光の反射方向(収容凹部105から離間する方向)に連続して複数形成されて、断面形状が鋸刃状を呈するよう構成されている。すなわち、前記第1光拡散部106の突出端部および第2光拡散部107の突出端部が平行になっている。ここで、前記各第2光拡散部107において前記収容凹部105側に位置する傾斜面を第2内側反射面107aと指称し、各第2光拡散部107において収容凹部105から離間する傾斜面を第2外側反射面107bと指称する。また、実施例における前記第2外側反射面107bと、前記第2の光透過部材102の対向面部103に垂直な垂直線とが交差する角度θは、略45°に設定される一方、第2内側反射面107aと該垂直線が交差する角度θは、角度θよりも大きく設定されている。
(About the second light diffusion unit 107)
As shown in FIG. 19, the second light diffusing portion 107 has a light reflection direction (a direction away from the housing recess 105) at each recess reflecting surface 105 a with respect to each recess reflecting surface 105 a in the housing recess 105. Are formed continuously so that the cross-sectional shape is a saw blade. That is, the protruding end of the first light diffusing unit 106 and the protruding end of the second light diffusing unit 107 are parallel to each other. Here, in each of the second light diffusing portions 107, the inclined surface located on the side of the accommodating recess 105 is referred to as a second inner reflecting surface 107a, and in each of the second light diffusing portions 107, the inclined surface separated from the accommodating recess 105 is defined. This is referred to as the second outer reflecting surface 107b. In the embodiment, the angle θ 5 at which the second outer reflective surface 107b and the vertical line perpendicular to the facing surface portion 103 of the second light transmitting member 102 intersect is set to approximately 45 °, The angle θ 4 at which the inner reflection surface 107a and the vertical line intersect is set to be larger than the angle θ 5 .
また、図19に示すように、前記各第2光拡散部107は、各第2光拡散部107の突出端部が前記収容凹部105から離間するにつれて前方へ変位するよう形成されている。すなわち、隣接する第2光拡散部107の第2内側反射面107aと第2外側反射面107bとの交線Lは、前記収容凹部105から離間するにつれて前側に位置し、各第2光拡散部107における第2外側反射面107bが収容凹部105の凹部反射面105aに対して対向するよう構成されている。従って、前記収容凹部105の凹部反射面105aで第2の光透過部材102の対向面部103の面方向へ反射された反射光が収容凹部105から離間位置する第2光拡散部107の第2外側反射面107bに対しても照射され、各第2外側反射面107bにおいて前方(第1の光透過部材92側)へ反射されるようになっている。   Further, as shown in FIG. 19, each second light diffusion portion 107 is formed to be displaced forward as the protruding end portion of each second light diffusion portion 107 moves away from the accommodation recess 105. That is, the line of intersection L between the second inner reflection surface 107a and the second outer reflection surface 107b of the adjacent second light diffusion portion 107 is positioned on the front side as the distance from the accommodating recess 105 increases, and each second light diffusion portion The second outer reflection surface 107 b in 107 is configured to face the recess reflection surface 105 a of the housing recess 105. Therefore, the second outer side of the second light diffusing portion 107 in which the reflected light reflected in the surface direction of the facing surface portion 103 of the second light transmitting member 102 by the concave reflecting surface 105 a of the accommodating concave portion 105 is separated from the accommodating concave portion 105. The light is also applied to the reflection surface 107b, and is reflected forward (to the first light transmission member 92 side) at each second outer reflection surface 107b.
また、図19、図20に示すように、前記各第2光拡散部107の第2内側反射面107aは、前記第2外側反射面107b側に屈曲するよう形成されている。すなわち、前記第2光拡散部107の突出端部は、前記収容凹部105側に突出する爪状に形成されている。これにより、前記対向面部103の表面(後述の膨出部110)において第2光拡散部107側に反射された光を第2内側反射面107aで乱反射して、拡散効果を高めるようにしている(図20参照)。   As shown in FIGS. 19 and 20, the second inner reflection surface 107a of each of the second light diffusion portions 107 is formed to bend toward the second outer reflection surface 107b. That is, the protruding end portion of the second light diffusing portion 107 is formed in a claw shape protruding toward the accommodating recess 105 side. Thereby, the light reflected on the second light diffusing portion 107 side on the surface of the facing surface portion 103 (a bulging portion 110 described later) is irregularly reflected by the second inner reflecting surface 107a to enhance the diffusion effect. (See FIG. 20).
また、前記第2の光透過部材102の表面側には、図17に示すように、前記第2光拡散部107の前方に対応する位置に、前方へ円弧状に膨出する膨出部110が形成されている。前記膨出部110は、前記第2外側反射面107bの中心位置近傍において膨出部110の境界面までの距離が長く、該第2外側反射面107bの端部に近づくにつれて膨出部110の境界面までの距離が短くなるようになっている。すなわち、前記膨出部110は、前記各第2光拡散部107に対するレンズとして機能し、該第2光拡散部107からの反射光を収束して反射光の強度を高めるようになっている。これにより、前記各第2光拡散部107における第2外側反射面107bの前面における中心位置近傍の光の強度が高くなり、第2外側反射面107bの対応位置に恰も光源が存在しているように感じられる。   Further, on the surface side of the second light transmitting member 102, as shown in FIG. 17, a bulging portion 110 bulging forward in an arc shape at a position corresponding to the front of the second light diffusing portion 107. Is formed. The bulging portion 110 has a long distance to the boundary surface of the bulging portion 110 in the vicinity of the center position of the second outer reflecting surface 107b, and as the bulging portion 110 approaches the end of the second outer reflecting surface 107b, The distance to the boundary surface is shortened. In other words, the bulging part 110 functions as a lens for each of the second light diffusion parts 107, and converges the reflected light from the second light diffusion part 107 to increase the intensity of the reflected light. Thereby, the intensity of light in the vicinity of the center position on the front surface of the second outer reflecting surface 107b in each of the second light diffusing sections 107 is increased, and it seems that there is a light source at the corresponding position of the second outer reflecting surface 107b. I can feel it.

Further, the third LED substrate 111 is formed with a second insertion hole 111b penetrating back and forth at a position corresponding to the fixed protrusion 93 formed on the first light transmission member 92. Then, the fixed protrusion 93 inserted into the first insertion hole 103a formed in the second light transmission member 102 is inserted into the second insertion hole 111b of the third LED board 111, and the The third LED substrate 111 is positioned. In addition, the fixed protrusion 93 inserted into the second insertion hole 111 b is configured to protrude rearward of the third LED substrate 111.
(後カバー体115について)
前記後カバー体115は、図12、図13、図21に示すように、前記第1の光透過部材92および飾り部材98を合わせた輪郭形状に略整合する板状に形成されると共に、該第1の光透過部材92に形成された固定突部93と対応する位置に、前後に貫通する通孔115aが形成されている。そして、前記第3のLED基板111の第2挿通孔111bに固定突部93を嵌挿した状態で、前記後カバー体115の各通孔115aに挿通したネジ(図示せず)を対応の固定突部93のネジ孔に螺挿することで、第1の光透過部材92および飾り部材98の後端部に後カバー体115が当接するようになっている。このとき、前記後カバー体115が前記第3のLED基板111の裏面に当接するよう構成され、前記第1の光透過部材92と後カバー体115との間に第2の光透過部材102および第3のLED基板111を挟持することで、前記装飾体部90が構成される。
(About the rear cover 115)
As shown in FIGS. 12, 13, and 21, the rear cover body 115 is formed in a plate shape that substantially matches the contour shape of the first light transmitting member 92 and the decorative member 98, and A through hole 115 a penetrating in the front-rear direction is formed at a position corresponding to the fixed protrusion 93 formed in the first light transmission member 92. A screw (not shown) inserted through each through hole 115a of the rear cover body 115 in a state where the fixed protrusion 93 is fitted into the second insertion hole 111b of the third LED substrate 111 is fixed. The rear cover body 115 comes into contact with the rear end portions of the first light transmitting member 92 and the decorative member 98 by being screwed into the screw holes of the protrusions 93. At this time, the rear cover body 115 is configured to come into contact with the back surface of the third LED substrate 111, and the second light transmission member 102 and the rear cover body 115 are interposed between the first light transmission member 92 and the rear cover body 115. The decorative body portion 90 is configured by sandwiching the third LED substrate 111.
また、前記後カバー体115の前面側には、前記第1の光透過部材92および飾り部材98の内部輪郭形状に整合する形状で前方へ突出する突出壁115bが形成されており、第1の光透過部材92と後カバー体115とを固定した際に、該突出壁115bが第3のLED基板111の背面を押圧して、第2の光透過部材102および第3のLED基板111を強固に挟持するよう構成される。なお、前記後カバー体115における前記コネクタ受け部112との対応位置には、前後に開口するコネクタ逃し孔115cが形成されており、該コネクタ受け部112と後カバー体115との干渉を防止している。   A projecting wall 115b that projects forward in a shape that matches the inner contour shape of the first light transmitting member 92 and the decorative member 98 is formed on the front surface side of the rear cover body 115. When the light transmission member 92 and the rear cover body 115 are fixed, the projecting wall 115b presses the back surface of the third LED substrate 111, thereby strengthening the second light transmission member 102 and the third LED substrate 111. It is comprised so that it may pinch. The rear cover body 115 is provided with a connector relief hole 115c opened at the front and rear at a position corresponding to the connector receiving section 112 to prevent interference between the connector receiving section 112 and the rear cover body 115. ing.
前記後カバー体115の下端部には、図13、図21に示すように、後端部にネジ孔116aが形成された連結突部116が後方へ突出するよう形成されている。そして、前記連結突部116を前記回転支持部82に形成した嵌合孔86aに嵌合すると共に、該嵌合孔86aに連通する通孔86bに挿通したネジ(図示せず)を連結突部116のネジ孔116aに螺挿することで、該回転支持部82と後カバー体115(装飾体部90)とが連結固定されて、これにより第1および第2可動部材80,81が構成される。   As shown in FIGS. 13 and 21, a connecting projection 116 having a screw hole 116 a formed in the rear end portion is formed at the lower end portion of the rear cover body 115 so as to protrude rearward. Then, the coupling protrusion 116 is fitted into a fitting hole 86a formed in the rotation support part 82, and a screw (not shown) inserted into a through hole 86b communicating with the fitting hole 86a is connected to the coupling protrusion.

〔実施例の作用〕
次に、前述のように構成された実施例に係るパチンコ機10の作用につき説明する。
(Effects of Example)
Next, the operation of the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment configured as described above will be described.
前記遊技盤20に設けたレール22に沿って遊技領域20aに打ち出されたパチンコ球Pは、遊技盤20上に設けた遊技釘等に接触して流下方向を変更しながら流下する。また、前記遊技領域20aを流下する過程で前記枠状装飾体30の庇状部32に形成した球通入口34aに通入したパチンコ球Pは、球誘導路34を介してステージ33上に誘導され、該ステージ33上を左右方向に転動した後に遊技領域20aに放出される。そして、前記遊技領域20aを流下するパチンコ球Pが前記始動入賞装置25に入賞すると、前記制御手段の制御に基づいて前記図柄表示装置17での図柄変動演出が開始され、図柄変動演出の結果、図柄表示装置17に所定の図柄組み合わせが表示されると大当りが発生する。大当りが発生すると、図柄表示装置17に表示された図柄組み合わせに応じて、前記遊技盤20の下方に設けられた特別入賞装置26が開放されると共に、前記制御手段の制御に基づいて図柄表示装置17において大当り演出が行なわれる。更に、前記図柄表示装置17で展開される図柄変動演出や大当り演出等に合わせて、前記裏ユニット40に配設された前記可動演出装置70が前記制御手段からの制御信号に基づいて作動されて第1および第2可動部材80,81を動作して演出が行なわれる。   The pachinko balls P launched into the game area 20a along the rails 22 provided on the game board 20 come into contact with the game nails provided on the game board 20 while changing the flow direction. Further, the pachinko ball P that has entered the ball entrance 34 a formed in the bowl-shaped portion 32 of the frame-shaped decorative body 30 in the process of flowing down the game area 20 a is guided onto the stage 33 through the ball guide path 34. Then, after rolling on the stage 33 in the left-right direction, it is released to the game area 20a. When the pachinko ball P flowing down the game area 20a wins the start winning device 25, the symbol variation effect on the symbol display device 17 is started based on the control of the control means, and as a result of the symbol variation effect, When a predetermined symbol combination is displayed on the symbol display device 17, a big hit occurs. When a big hit occurs, according to the symbol combination displayed on the symbol display device 17, the special winning device 26 provided below the game board 20 is opened, and the symbol display device is controlled based on the control of the control means. At 17, a big hit effect is performed. Further, the movable effect device 70 disposed in the back unit 40 is operated based on a control signal from the control means in accordance with a symbol variation effect, a big hit effect, etc. developed by the symbol display device 17. The first and second movable members 80 and 81 are operated to produce an effect.
ここで、前記遊技盤20を構成する前記裏ユニット40には、該箱状本体の背面板41に開設した開口部41aの下方および左方に、左右の下部照明装置50,51および側部照明装置52が配設されて、これらの照明装置50,51,52により透明板21の遊技領域20aに対応する裏面を全体的に覆うようになっている。ここで、前記左右の下部照明装置50,51および側部照明装置52を構成する前記装飾カバー部材59は、前記裏ユニット40の開口前端部により画成される開口面と略同一面に位置するよう構成してあるから、各照明装置50,51,52における第1のLED基板61のLED62を発光させて対応の装飾カバー部材59を明輝することで、前記透明板21(遊技領域20a)の全体を照明することができる。このように、前記裏ユニット40に設けた前記左右の下部照明装置50,51および側部照明装置52により前記透明板21(遊技領域20a)の全体を裏側から照明して発光装飾することで、ベニヤ板等の木材から形成された遊技盤20の盤面に所要の図柄等が描かれたセルシートを貼着する構成に較べ、遊技盤20の装飾性が格段に向上され、パチンコ機10の付加価値の向上を図ると共に遊技の興趣の向上を図り得る。このとき、前記左右の下部照明装置50,51および側部照明装置52の装飾カバー部材59は、透明板21の裏面に極めて近接位置しているから、該装飾カバー部材59の各種図柄が透明板21に描かれているように見え、ベニヤ板等の木材から形成された遊技盤20の盤面に所要の図柄等が描かれたセルシートを貼着する場合と比べて違和感なく遊技を行なうことができる。   Here, the back unit 40 constituting the game board 20 includes left and right lower illumination devices 50 and 51 and side illuminations below and to the left of the opening 41a formed in the back plate 41 of the box-shaped main body. A device 52 is provided, and the illumination device 50, 51, 52 covers the entire back surface corresponding to the game area 20 a of the transparent plate 21. Here, the decorative cover member 59 constituting the left and right lower illuminating devices 50 and 51 and the side illuminating device 52 is positioned substantially on the same plane as the opening surface defined by the opening front end portion of the back unit 40. Since the LED 62 of the first LED board 61 in each lighting device 50, 51, 52 emits light to brighten the corresponding decorative cover member 59, the transparent plate 21 (game area 20a) The whole can be illuminated. In this way, by illuminating the entire transparent plate 21 (game area 20a) from the back side by the left and right lower lighting devices 50, 51 and the side lighting device 52 provided in the back unit 40, a light emitting decoration is performed. Compared to a configuration in which a cell sheet on which a required pattern or the like is drawn is attached to the surface of the game board 20 made of wood such as a plywood board, the decorativeness of the game board 20 is significantly improved, and the added value of the pachinko machine 10 It is possible to improve the interest of the game and improve the fun of the game. At this time, the decorative cover members 59 of the left and right lower illuminating devices 50 and 51 and the side illuminating device 52 are located very close to the back surface of the transparent plate 21, so that the various designs of the decorative cover member 59 are transparent plates. As shown in FIG. 21, the game can be played with a sense of incompatibility compared to the case where a cell sheet on which a required pattern or the like is drawn is attached to the surface of the game board 20 made of wood such as a plywood board. .
また、前記左右の下部照明装置50,51には、該左右の下部照明装置50,51を構成する箱状部53に形成された上方開口部56aに第2のLED基板63が配設されており、該第2のLED基板63に設けた第1LED64aを発光することでステージ33が下方から照明されるから、ステージ33上を転動するパチンコ球Pの視認性やステージ33の発光を利用した演出効果の向上が図られる。そして、前記裏ユニット40に左右の下部照明装置50,51を配設してステージ33を下方から照明するよう構成したことで、前記枠状装飾体30自体にステージ33を下方から照明するLED基板等の照明装置を設ける必要がなく、該枠状装飾体30の簡略化が図られ、枠状装飾体30を小型化することができる。従って、パチンコ機10を構成する他の構成部品の取付箇所の自由度を高め得ると共に、該枠状装飾体30の表示窓口30aを大きくして図柄表示装置17が遊技盤20の前方に臨む領域を拡大することが可能となる。また、枠状装飾体30の構成を簡略化し得るから、製造コストの低減を図り得る。   The left and right lower illumination devices 50 and 51 are provided with a second LED substrate 63 in an upper opening 56a formed in a box-like portion 53 constituting the left and right lower illumination devices 50 and 51. Since the stage 33 is illuminated from below by emitting the first LED 64a provided on the second LED substrate 63, the visibility of the pachinko sphere P rolling on the stage 33 and the light emission of the stage 33 are used. The production effect is improved. And the LED board which illuminates the stage 33 on the frame-shaped decorative body 30 itself by arranging the left and right lower illumination devices 50 and 51 on the back unit 40 and illuminating the stage 33 from below. Therefore, the frame-shaped decorative body 30 can be simplified, and the frame-shaped decorative body 30 can be reduced in size. Accordingly, the degree of freedom of the attachment location of other components constituting the pachinko machine 10 can be increased, and the display window 30a of the frame-shaped decorative body 30 can be enlarged so that the symbol display device 17 faces the front of the game board 20 Can be expanded. Moreover, since the structure of the frame-shaped decorative body 30 can be simplified, the manufacturing cost can be reduced.
更に、前記第2のLED基板63には、前記枠状装飾体30の後側規制壁36と後飾り板38との間に形成された間隙の下方開口に臨む位置に第2LED64bを備えて、該第2LED64bを発光することで、後飾り板38で反射された反射光が後側規制壁36を介して遊技盤20の前方へ照射される。すなわち、ステージ33の上方を照明する照明装置も枠状装飾体30に設ける必要がなく、該枠状装飾体30をより簡単な構成に形成して小型化することができる。   Further, the second LED board 63 includes a second LED 64b at a position facing a lower opening of a gap formed between the rear regulating wall 36 and the rear decoration plate 38 of the frame-shaped decorative body 30; By emitting light from the second LED 64 b, the reflected light reflected by the rear decoration plate 38 is irradiated to the front of the game board 20 through the rear side regulation wall 36. That is, it is not necessary to provide the illumination device for illuminating the upper side of the stage 33 in the frame-shaped decorative body 30, and the frame-shaped decorative body 30 can be formed in a simpler configuration and can be downsized.
また、前記左右の下部照明装置50,51では、箱状部53に開設された上方開口部56aに第2のLED基板63が臨むよう箱状部53の内部に第2のLED基板63を収容するよう構成したから、単に箱状部53の対向上壁部56に第2のLED基板63を取り付ける構成に較べて、該左右の下部照明装置50,51の小型化も図ることができる。そして、前記第2のLED基板63により箱状部53の上方開口部56aを塞ぐように覆っているから、該箱状部53の空間部60に収容された前記第1のLED基板61のLED62を発光させた際に、該第1のLED基板61のLED62からの光が上方開口部56aを介してステージ33に照射されるのを確実に防止し得る。従って、箱状部53に上方開口部56aを形成したとしても、前記第1のLED基板61に設けたLED62の発光による透明板21の照明と、前記第2のLED基板63に設けた第1および第2LED64a,64bの発光によるステージ33の照明とを明確に区別することができ、該透明板21およびステージ33を独立して照明して装飾や演出を実行することができる。   Further, in the left and right lower illumination devices 50 and 51, the second LED substrate 63 is accommodated inside the box-shaped portion 53 so that the second LED substrate 63 faces the upper opening 56a opened in the box-shaped portion 53. Therefore, the left and right lower illumination devices 50 and 51 can be downsized as compared with the configuration in which the second LED substrate 63 is simply attached to the pair-improving wall portion 56 of the box-shaped portion 53. And since it covers so that the upper opening part 56a of the box-shaped part 53 may be plugged up by the said 2nd LED board 63, LED62 of the said 1st LED board 61 accommodated in the space part 60 of this box-shaped part 53 is used. Can be reliably prevented from irradiating the stage 33 with light from the LEDs 62 of the first LED substrate 61 through the upper opening 56a. Therefore, even if the upper opening 56 a is formed in the box-shaped portion 53, the illumination of the transparent plate 21 by the light emission of the LED 62 provided on the first LED substrate 61 and the first LED provided on the second LED substrate 63 are provided. The illumination of the stage 33 by the light emission of the second LEDs 64a and 64b can be clearly distinguished, and the transparent plate 21 and the stage 33 can be illuminated independently to perform decoration and effects.
また、前記左右の下部照明装置50,51は、前記箱状部53に対して前記第1のLED基板61、第2のLED基板63および装飾カバー部材59の夫々を前側から固定するよう構成されている。このため、前記左右の下部照明装置50,51を組付作業性の向上が図られると共に、組付作業に要する時間が短縮されることによりコスト低減が図られる利点がある。   The left and right lower illumination devices 50 and 51 are configured to fix the first LED substrate 61, the second LED substrate 63, and the decorative cover member 59 from the front side with respect to the box-shaped portion 53. ing. For this reason, it is possible to improve the assembling workability of the left and right lower illumination devices 50 and 51 and to reduce the cost by shortening the time required for the assembling work.
また、前記枠状装飾体30には、ステージ33の後端部に沿って設けられた後側規制壁36における枠状装飾体30の開口内側の端縁に前方へ突出する屋根状部37が設けられると共に、該枠状装飾体30における庇状部32(左庇部分32a)の下端部を屋根状部37の下端部より下方に位置させて、該庇状部32と屋根状部37とを左右方向に重なるよう構成したことで、遊技領域20aを流下する過程で弾かれて庇状部32(左庇部分32a)の下端部からステージ33側に移動したパチンコ球Pが、枠状装飾体30の後方開口から可動演出装置70の設置領域に移動するのを防止できる。また、前記屋根状部37を後側規制壁36における枠状装飾体30の開口内側の端縁に沿って設けたことで、図柄表示装置17が臨む表示窓口30aに該屋根状部37が重なることはなく、図柄表示装置17の視認性が低下することはない。また、前記屋根状部37の前側突出端部から透視保護板13aまでの離間寸法をパチンコ球Pの直径寸法より小さく設定してあるから、遊技領域20aを流下する過程で弾かれたパチンコ球Pが屋根状部37と透視保護板13aとの間を通過することはなく、可動演出装置70の設置領域にパチンコ球Pが移動するのを確実に防止できる。   Further, the frame-shaped decorative body 30 has a roof-shaped portion 37 that protrudes forward to the edge inside the opening of the frame-shaped decorative body 30 in the rear regulating wall 36 provided along the rear end portion of the stage 33. The lower end of the hook-shaped portion 32 (left port portion 32a) in the frame-shaped decorative body 30 is positioned below the lower end of the roof-shaped portion 37, and the hook-shaped portion 32 and the roof-shaped portion 37 are provided. Is configured to overlap in the left-right direction, so that the pachinko ball P that has been bounced in the process of flowing down the game area 20a and moved from the lower end of the bowl-shaped part 32 (portal part 32a) to the stage 33 side is frame-shaped decoration. It is possible to prevent movement from the rear opening of the body 30 to the installation area of the movable effect device 70. Further, by providing the roof-shaped portion 37 along the edge inside the opening of the frame-shaped decorative body 30 in the rear-side regulating wall 36, the roof-shaped portion 37 overlaps the display window 30a where the symbol display device 17 faces. The visibility of the symbol display device 17 does not deteriorate. Further, since the separation dimension from the front protruding end of the roof-shaped part 37 to the see-through protection plate 13a is set smaller than the diameter dimension of the pachinko ball P, the pachinko ball P played in the process of flowing down the game area 20a. Does not pass between the roof-like portion 37 and the fluoroscopic protective plate 13a, and the pachinko ball P can be reliably prevented from moving to the installation area of the movable effect device 70.
また、実施例に係る可動演出装置70は、第1および第2可動部材80,81の夫々を、第1の光透過部材92の内側に第2の光透過部材102を収容すると共に、該第2の光透過部材102の輪郭形状を第1の光透過部材92における外周壁部92bがなす内側輪郭形状に合致させるよう構成したことで、第2の光透過部材102が第1の光透過部材92の内側で位置決めされ、該第1および第2可動部材80,81を動作させた際に、第1の光透過部材92の内部で第2の光透過部材102が移動するのを抑制し得る。しかも、第1の光透過部材92と第2の光透過部材102とを組み付けた際に、第1位置決め部および第2位置決め部が係合し、更に固定突部93を第1挿通孔103aに嵌挿するよう構成したから、第1の光透過部材92に対して第2の光透過部材102がより正確に位置決めされ、第1および第2可動部材80,81の動作時における第2の光透過部材102の移動をより効果的に抑制できる。   In addition, the movable effect device 70 according to the embodiment accommodates the first and second movable members 80 and 81, the second light transmitting member 102 inside the first light transmitting member 92, and the first The second light transmissive member 102 is configured to match the inner contour shape formed by the outer peripheral wall portion 92b of the first light transmissive member 92 so that the second light transmissive member 102 is the first light transmissive member. The second light transmitting member 102 can be restrained from moving inside the first light transmitting member 92 when the first and second movable members 80 and 81 are operated. . In addition, when the first light transmission member 92 and the second light transmission member 102 are assembled, the first positioning portion and the second positioning portion are engaged, and the fixed protrusion 93 is inserted into the first insertion hole 103a. Since the second light transmitting member 102 is more accurately positioned with respect to the first light transmitting member 92, the second light during the operation of the first and second movable members 80 and 81 is configured. The movement of the transmissive member 102 can be more effectively suppressed.
更に、前記第1および第2可動部材80,81を構成する第3のLED基板111は、前記第1の光透過部材92の外周壁部92bの内側に収容されて、該第1の光透過部材92の外周壁部92bが第3のLED基板111の端縁部に当接するよう構成したから、当該第3のLED基板111が第1の光透過部材92の内側で位置決めされる。従って、第1および第2可動部材80,81の動作時に第3のLED基板111が第1の光透過部材92の内部で移動することも抑制される。このとき、前記第2の光透過部材102の第1挿通孔103aに嵌挿された固定突部93が、第3のLED基板111に形成された第2挿通孔111bに嵌挿されるように構成してあるから、第1の光透過部材92に対する第3のLED基板111の位置決めがより正確になされ、第1および第2可動部材80,81の動作時における第3のLED基板111の移動をより効果的に抑制し得る。そして、前記第3のLED基板111の第2挿通孔111bに嵌挿された固定突部93に後カバー体115を固定することで、第1の光透過部材92と後カバー体115との間に第2の光透過部材102および第3のLED基板111が挟持されるから、該第2の光透過部材102や第3のLED基板111の前後方向の移動も規制される。   Further, the third LED substrate 111 constituting the first and second movable members 80 and 81 is accommodated inside the outer peripheral wall portion 92b of the first light transmission member 92, and the first light transmission is performed. Since the outer peripheral wall portion 92 b of the member 92 is configured to contact the end edge portion of the third LED substrate 111, the third LED substrate 111 is positioned inside the first light transmission member 92. Therefore, the movement of the third LED substrate 111 inside the first light transmitting member 92 during the operation of the first and second movable members 80 and 81 is also suppressed. At this time, the fixed protrusion 93 inserted into the first insertion hole 103 a of the second light transmission member 102 is configured to be inserted into the second insertion hole 111 b formed in the third LED substrate 111. Therefore, the third LED substrate 111 is more accurately positioned with respect to the first light transmitting member 92, and the third LED substrate 111 is moved during the operation of the first and second movable members 80 and 81. It can suppress more effectively. Then, by fixing the rear cover body 115 to the fixed protrusion 93 inserted into the second insertion hole 111b of the third LED substrate 111, the space between the first light transmission member 92 and the rear cover body 115 is fixed. Since the second light transmission member 102 and the third LED substrate 111 are sandwiched between the second light transmission member 102 and the third LED substrate 111, the movement of the second light transmission member 102 and the third LED substrate 111 in the front-rear direction is also restricted.
このように、前記第1および第2可動部材80,81の内部空間(すなわち第1の光透過部材92および後カバー体115により画成される空間)に第2の光透過部材102や第3のLED基板111を配設した場合でも、各部材が正確に位置決めされ、該第1および第2可動部材80,81内での部材の移動を防止することが可能となる。これにより、前記可動演出装置70の第1および第2可動部材80,81を動作させた際に、前記第2の光透過部材102や第3のLED基板111が第1の光透過部材92や後カバー体115に接触して異音が生ずるのを効果的に抑制でき、第1および第2可動部材80,81の動作が演出上の妨げになることなく効果的な演出を実現できる。また、前記第1可動部材80には、可動位置に移動した際に第2可動部材81に対向する面に緩衝部材96を取り付けるよう構成されているから、第1および第2可動部材80,81が直接接触して異音が生ずるのは防止される。   As described above, the second light transmitting member 102 and the third light transmitting member 102 are formed in the internal space of the first and second movable members 80 and 81 (that is, the space defined by the first light transmitting member 92 and the rear cover body 115). Even when the LED substrate 111 is provided, each member is accurately positioned, and it is possible to prevent the member from moving within the first and second movable members 80 and 81. Thus, when the first and second movable members 80 and 81 of the movable effect device 70 are operated, the second light transmitting member 102 and the third LED substrate 111 are moved to the first light transmitting member 92 and It is possible to effectively suppress the generation of abnormal noise in contact with the rear cover body 115, and it is possible to realize an effective performance without hindering the operation of the first and second movable members 80 and 81. Further, since the first movable member 80 is configured to attach the buffer member 96 to the surface facing the second movable member 81 when moved to the movable position, the first and second movable members 80, 81 are arranged. It is possible to prevent the noise from coming into direct contact with each other.
また、前記第1および第2可動部材80,81の第2の光透過部材102は、前記第3のLED基板111のLED111aを収容する収容凹部105の前側に第1光拡散部106を位置させて、該第3のLED基板111のLED111aから前方へ向けて照射された光の一部を第1光拡散部106の第1内側反射面106aおよび第1外側反射面106bを介して一旦後方(収容凹部105の凹部反射面105a)へ向けて反射して、該凹部反射面105aにおいて、第1光拡散部106からの反射光を第2の光透過部材102の対向面部103の面方向へ反射し、凹部反射面105aで反射された反射光を、第2光拡散部107の第2内側反射面107aおよび第2外側反射面107bで前方(第1の光透過部材92側)へ反射するようになっている。   In addition, the second light transmitting member 102 of the first and second movable members 80 and 81 has the first light diffusion portion 106 positioned on the front side of the housing recess 105 for housing the LED 111a of the third LED substrate 111. Thus, a part of the light emitted forward from the LED 111a of the third LED substrate 111 is once rearward through the first inner reflection surface 106a and the first outer reflection surface 106b of the first light diffusion portion 106 ( Reflected toward the concave reflection surface 105 a) of the housing concave portion 105, and the reflected light from the first light diffusion portion 106 is reflected in the concave reflection surface 105 a toward the surface direction of the opposing surface portion 103 of the second light transmitting member 102. The reflected light reflected by the concave reflecting surface 105a is reflected forward (to the first light transmitting member 92 side) by the second inner reflecting surface 107a and the second outer reflecting surface 107b of the second light diffusing portion 107. Nina To have.
このとき、前記第2光拡散部107を各凹部反射面105aでの光の反射方向(収容凹部105から離間する方向)に連続して複数形成すると共に、各第2光拡散部107の突出端部が前記収容凹部105から離間するにつれて前方へ変位するよう形成し、隣接する第2光拡散部107の第2内側反射面107aと第2外側反射面107bとの交線Lを収容凹部105から離間するにつれて前側に位置させることで、各第2光拡散部107における第2外側反射面107bが収容凹部105の凹部反射面105aに対して対向するよう構成してあるから、凹部反射面105aで反射された反射光を収容凹部105から離間位置する第2外側反射面107bに対しても効果的に照射することができる。これにより、第1光拡散部106における第1内側反射面106aおよび第1外側反射面106bを介して反射された反射光を、第2光拡散部107の反射面で確実に受け止めて前方に反射させることができる。しかも、収容凹部105(すなわち第3のLED基板111におけるLED111aの配置位置)から離れた位置の第2光拡散部107の反射面に対しても反射光を確実に行き渡らせることができ、1つのLED111aの光を照射可能な範囲を格段に広げることができる。   At this time, a plurality of the second light diffusing portions 107 are continuously formed in the light reflecting direction at each concave reflecting surface 105a (a direction away from the accommodating concave portion 105), and the protruding end of each second light diffusing portion 107 The portion is formed so as to be displaced forward as it moves away from the receiving recess 105, and an intersection line L between the second inner reflecting surface 107 a and the second outer reflecting surface 107 b of the adjacent second light diffusing portion 107 is separated from the receiving recess 105. Since the second outer reflective surface 107b of each second light diffusion portion 107 is configured to face the concave reflection surface 105a of the accommodating concave portion 105 by being positioned on the front side as being separated, the concave reflection surface 105a The reflected light that has been reflected can also be effectively applied to the second outer reflective surface 107 b that is positioned away from the housing recess 105. Thereby, the reflected light reflected through the first inner reflecting surface 106a and the first outer reflecting surface 106b in the first light diffusing unit 106 is reliably received by the reflecting surface of the second light diffusing unit 107 and reflected forward. Can be made. In addition, the reflected light can be reliably distributed to the reflecting surface of the second light diffusing unit 107 at a position away from the housing recess 105 (that is, the arrangement position of the LED 111a on the third LED substrate 111). The range in which the light of the LED 111a can be irradiated can be greatly expanded.
更に、前記第2の光透過部材102の前側に光拡散処理がなされた第1の光透過部材92を配設してあるから、該第2の光透過部材102で拡散された光を、当該第1の光透過部材92において更に拡散することができる。このため、1つのLED111aを用いて従来にない広範囲を明輝させ得るようになり、第3のLED基板111のLED111aの配設数を低減でき、部品点数の削減により製造工程の簡略化を図り得ると共に、コストの低減を実現できる。   Further, since the first light transmission member 92 that has been subjected to the light diffusion process is disposed on the front side of the second light transmission member 102, the light diffused by the second light transmission member 102 Further diffusion in the first light transmission member 92 is possible. For this reason, it becomes possible to brighten an unprecedented wide range using one LED 111a, the number of LEDs 111a on the third LED substrate 111 can be reduced, and the manufacturing process can be simplified by reducing the number of components. At the same time, the cost can be reduced.
また、実施例に係る第2の光透過部材102には、前記第2光拡散部107の前方に対応する位置に、前方へ円弧状に膨出する膨出部110を形成して、該第2光拡散部107からの反射光を収束して反射光の強度を高めるよう構成されている。すなわち、第1光拡散部106や収容凹部105の凹部反射面105a、第2光拡散部107での複数回の反射を繰り返すことで低下した光の強度を高めることができ、第1および第2可動部材80,81の光装飾効果を向上することができる。また、前述したように、前記第1および第2可動部材80,81の動作時においても、前記第1の光透過部材92、第2の光透過部材102および第3のLED基板111の相対的な位置関係が正確に保持されることから、第3のLED基板111のLED111aを発光させた際に、所期の電飾効果を発揮させることが可能となる。   In addition, the second light transmitting member 102 according to the embodiment is formed with a bulging portion 110 that bulges forward in an arc shape at a position corresponding to the front of the second light diffusing portion 107, and The reflected light from the two-light diffusing unit 107 is converged to increase the intensity of the reflected light. That is, the intensity of the reduced light can be increased by repeating a plurality of reflections at the first light diffusing portion 106, the concave reflection surface 105 a of the accommodating concave portion 105, and the second light diffusing portion 107. The light decoration effect of the movable members 80 and 81 can be improved. In addition, as described above, the first light transmitting member 92, the second light transmitting member 102, and the third LED substrate 111 are relatively moved even during the operation of the first and second movable members 80 and 81. Therefore, when the LED 111a of the third LED substrate 111 is caused to emit light, the desired electric decoration effect can be exhibited.
