Description

  The present invention relates to a gaming machine configured to perform an effect by operating a movable member by driving of a driving means.

  A pachinko machine, which is a typical gaming machine, has a frame-shaped frame-shaped decorative body (a so-called center accessory) disposed at a substantially central position of the game area defined on the surface of the game board. A symbol display device such as a liquid crystal type or a drum type that performs a symbol change game by variably displaying a plurality of symbols through an opening of the body is faced from the rear, and at a position below the frame-shaped decorative body on the game board, Many proposals have been made to arrange a start winning device that starts fluctuations in the symbol display device by winning a pachinko ball (game ball) and a special winning device that opens at the time of a big hit. In such a pachinko machine, the pachinko ball launched into the game area gradually flows down due to its own weight while bouncing off by contact with a game nail or the like implanted in the game area, and starts in the process of flowing down the game area. By winning the winning device, various game effects such as a reach effect accompanying the symbol variation game are made on the symbol display device, and when the symbols stop on the symbol display device in a predetermined combination, a so-called big hit occurs. A special winning device provided on the game board is configured to be opened to obtain a large number of prize balls.

  Further, in many pachinko machines, a movable effect device (movable effect device) provided with a movable member that performs a required operation is provided as a decorative member, and the movable member is used as a symbol variation game on a symbol display device. The effect of the production is improved by operating according to. In addition, for example, as disclosed in Patent Document 1, a light emitting substrate provided with a light emitter is disposed on a movable member, and the light emitter is caused to emit light in accordance with the operation of the movable member. Further enhancements are also being made.

JP 2009-89762 A

  By the way, it is necessary to wire-connect the light emitting substrate or the like disposed on the movable member so as to be electrically connected to the control device. Here, as a wiring connection structure for the substrate provided on the movable member, a flexible structure in which a plurality of conductors formed in a thin plate shape are arranged and covered with an insulator as described in Patent Document 1 depending on the installation location of the movable member, etc. A flat cable is used. Here, the flexible flat cable is excellent in flexibility in the thickness direction due to its property, but has little flexibility in the width direction. For this reason, when the flexible flat cable connected to the movable member needs to be routed in the width direction due to the positional relationship of the movable member, the control device, etc., the flexible flat cable is bent so as to be twisted. However, since the flexible flat cable has a structure in which a thin flat conductor is covered with an insulator inside as described above, the bent portion of the flexible flat cable may be hooked on another member during the operation of the movable member. With this operation, the bent portion may be repeatedly bent and may be disconnected.

  That is, the present invention has been proposed in order to suitably solve these problems inherent in the above-described gaming machine according to the prior art, and includes a bent portion of a flexible flat cable connected to a movable member. An object is to provide a gaming machine capable of preventing disconnection.

In order to overcome the above-mentioned problems and achieve an intended purpose, a gaming machine according to claim 1 is:
A gaming machine including a movable effect device (35, 150) that performs an effect by moving the movable member (90) by driving of the drive means (36),
A flexible flat cable (112) is connected to the connector (111) of the board (110) disposed on the board mounting base (98) provided on the movable member (90), and the board mounting base (98) between the fixed cover member to the substrate mounting base (98) (115,165), said is adapted to clamp the flexible flat cable (112) is a bending and forming a bent portion (113) Rutotomoni,
One of the board mounting base (98) and the cover member (115, 165) is provided with a guide protrusion (104) that can come into contact with a side edge of the flexible flat cable (112). On the other side of the base (98) and the cover member (115, 165), a hole (118) into which the guide protrusion (104) is fitted is formed at a position corresponding to the guide protrusion (104). When the member (115,165) is fixed to the board mounting base (98), the guide protrusion (104) fitted in the hole (118) is configured to restrict the movement of the flexible flat cable (112). Is the gist.

As described above, the bent portion formed by bending the flexible flat cable is configured to be sandwiched between the substrate mounting base of the movable member and the cover member fixed to the substrate mounting base. When this is operated, the bent portion of the flexible flat cable is not bent, and disconnection of the flexible flat cable can be prevented. In addition, since the bent portion of the flexible flat cable is covered with the cover member, it is possible to effectively prevent the bent portion from being caught by another bending machine component member when the movable member is operated. Further, when the cover member is fixed to the board mounting base, the position of the flexible flat cable is regulated by the guide protrusion provided on the cover member or the board mounting base. Can be prevented from being displaced. Therefore, when the movable member is operated, it is possible to prevent the bent portion from protruding between the cover member and the board mounting base due to the movement of the flexible flat cable.

In the gaming machine according to claim 2 , the guide protrusion (104) is provided so as to be positioned on both sides of the flexible flat cable (112), and the bent portion (113) of the flexible flat cable (112) is provided. The flexible flat cable (112) is configured to abut against the bent corner and restrict the position of the flexible flat cable (112).

  Thus, the movement of the flexible flat cable can be more reliably prevented by positioning the guide protrusions on both sides of the flexible flat cable. Moreover, the guide protrusion is positioned corresponding to the bent portion of the flexible flat cable and abuts against the corner portion where the flexible flat cable is folded, so that the movement of the bent portion can be reliably prevented.

  That is, according to the gaming machine of the present invention, it is possible to prevent an excessive load from being applied to the bent portion of the flexible flat cable during operation of the movable member, and it is possible to prevent disconnection of the cable.

  The base portion 121 is formed to have a width dimension that fits between a pair of position restricting portions 96, 96 formed in the movable body main body 91 (front half body 92), and the sliding portion 125 includes the base portion. The movable body main body 91 is configured to slide in contact with an outer peripheral wall portion 94 extending in the longitudinal direction of the front half body 92 in the movable body main body 91. That is, the sliding part 125 is in contact with the position restricting parts 96, 96, thereby preventing the sliding member 120 from falling off the housing space 106. The sliding portion 125 is formed with an opening (hereinafter referred to as a light transmission hole 125a) so as to open in the front-rear direction, and the movable body LED substrate 110 and the sliding portion 125 are overlapped in the front-rear direction. Light from the LED 110a of the movable LED substrate 110 can be irradiated to the front half body 92 through the light transmission hole 125a of the sliding portion 125 (see FIG. 19). Thereby, when the slide member 120 is moved within the accommodation space 106 defined in the movable body main body 91, illumination by the movable body LED substrate 110 is not hindered.

  The slide member 120 (base 121) is formed with the second connecting portion 122 that protrudes rearward. The second connecting part 122 includes a base part 122a provided continuously with the base part 121, and a shaft part 122b provided at the rear end part of the base part 122a, and a cylinder having a through hole 123a penetrating in the front-rear direction. A shaped bearing member 123 is extrapolated to the shaft portion 122b. And the said 2nd connection part 122 and the cylindrical bearing member 123 are slidably inserted from the front side with respect to the guide hole 67a formed in the said support plate 65. FIG. Then, a disc member 124 having a larger diameter than the guide hole 67a of the support plate 65 is screwed to the shaft portion 122b inserted into the guide hole 67a of the support plate 65, and the guide hole The second connecting portion 122 (cylindrical bearing member 123) from 67a is prevented from being removed.

  A flange portion 123b extending in the radial direction is formed at the front end portion of the cylindrical bearing member 123. In other words, the flange member 123b of the cylindrical bearing member 123 and the disk member 124 are positioned so as to sandwich the protrusion 67 of the support plate 65 in which the guide hole 67a is formed from the front and rear, thereby allowing the slide member 120 to be sandwiched. The movement of the slide member 120 relative to the guide hole 67a and the stability of the rotation are improved. The disk member 124 is configured to be located inside the protrusion 67 through the rear opening of the protrusion 67, and prevents the disk member 124 from interfering with the back unit 30. ing.

  As described above, in the movable member 90 according to the first embodiment, the upper end portion (first connection portion 92a) is supported by the operating body 84 (connection portion 89), and the lower end portion (second connection portion 122) is supported. It is supported by the protrusion 67 (guide hole 67a) of the plate 65. As the operating body 84 moves from the original position toward the final position, the upper end portion (first connecting portion 92a) of the movable member 90 at the initial position (see FIGS. 20 to 22) is moved. Move left. Along with the movement of the upper end portion (first connecting portion 92a) of the movable member 90, the lower end portion (second connecting portion 122) of the movable member 90 moves along the protrusion 67 (guide hole 67a) of the support plate 65. To do. That is, when the relative positional relationship between the first connecting portion 92a and the second connecting portion 122 changes, the first connecting portion 92 and the second connecting portion 122 are centered so that the movable member 90 tilts leftward. Rotate as

  And when the said operation body 84 moves to the switching position (refer FIGS. 23-25) in the middle to the final position, the said 2nd connection part 122 will be the upper left end of the protrusion 67 (guide hole 67a) of the support plate 65. FIG. It moves to the part (end part side close to the rod-shaped member 50). Therefore, while the operating body 84 moves from the switching position to the final position, the lower end portion of the movable member 90 (the second connecting portion 122 of the slide member 120) is connected to the protrusion portion 67 (guide hole 67a) of the support plate 65. The movable member 90 is tilted to the left and right with the second connecting portion 122 as the center. Here, when the operating body 84 moves from the switching position to the final position (see FIGS. 26 to 28), the separation interval between the first connecting portion 92a and the second connecting portion 122 is increased. The slide member 120 is pulled out from the accommodation space 106 of the movable body 91, and the movable member 90 expands.

(About the second movable effect device 135)
Next, the second movable effect device 135 will be briefly described. As shown in FIG. 4, the second movable effect device 135 is connected to a device main body (not shown) attached to the back unit 30 and a control device (not shown) disposed in the device main body. It is basically composed of a second drive motor (not shown), a first covering member 137 fixed to the apparatus main body, and a second covering member 138 supported so as to be movable with respect to the apparatus main body. The second drive motor and the second covering member 138 are connected to each other via a drive transmission means (not shown). That is, the second movable effect device 135 drives the second drive motor based on the control signal from the control device, so that the second covering member 138 operates via the drive transmission means. . The drive transmission means employs a gear mechanism that converts the rotational motion of the second drive motor into linear motion.

  Here, the first covering member 137 is configured to be positioned in front of the upper end side of the movable member 90 in a state where the movable member 90 of the first movable effect device 35 is in the initial position, and the movable member 90 is movable. The upper end portion of the member 90 is configured to be covered with the first covering member 137. The second covering member 138 is provided below the first covering member 137 and is positioned on the front side of the movable member 90 in a state where the movable member 90 of the first movable effect device 35 is in the initial position. Thus, the entire movable member 90 is covered with the first covering member 137 and the second covering member 138.

  The second covering member 138 is close to the first covering member 137 in the extending direction of the movable member 90 in a state where the movable member 90 of the first movable effect device 35 is in the initial position. It is configured to move apart. That is, as the second drive motor is driven, the first covering member 137 and the second covering member 138 come close to each other and cover the entire movable member 90 with the two covering members 137 and 138 (FIG. 4). (see (a)) and an open position where the second covering member 138 is separated from the first covering member 137 and the movable member 90 is exposed between the covering members 137 and 138 (see FIG. 4B). The second covering member 138 is configured to move between the two.

[Operation of Example 1]
Next, the operation of the pachinko machine 10 according to the first embodiment configured as described above will be described.

  The pachinko balls launched into the game area 20a along the rails 21 provided on the game board 20 come into contact with the game nails provided on the game board 20 while changing the flow direction. When the pachinko ball flowing down the game area 20a wins the start winning device 24, the symbol change effect on the symbol display device 17 is started based on the control of the control device. As a result of the symbol change effect, When a predetermined symbol combination is displayed on the 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 25 provided below the game board 20 is opened, and the symbol display device is controlled based on the control of the control device. At 17, a big hit effect is performed.

  Then, in accordance with a symbol variation effect or a big hit effect developed in the symbol display device 17, the movable effect devices 35, 135 disposed in the back unit 30 are based on a control signal from the control device. In operation, an operation effect and a light emission effect are performed. That is, by driving the second drive motor provided in the second movable effect device 135, the second covering member 138 moves between the covering position and the open position, and the first position is in the initial position. A game effect is performed by switching between a state where the movable member 90 of the movable effect device 35 is covered and a state where the movable member 90 is exposed.

  Next, an operation effect of the first movable effect device 35 will be described. When the first drive motor 36 included in the first movable rendering device 34 is driven in a state where the movable member 90 of the first movable rendering device 35 is in the initial position (see FIGS. 20 to 22), Each driven gear 72 is rotated with the rotation of the drive gear 71 provided on the drive shaft 36 a of the first drive motor 36, and the cylindrical body 74 is rotated through the front side connecting gear 75 meshed with the driven gear 72. Is done. A rail provided with a movable rack gear member 78 in the unit body 38 (first box-shaped portion 41), which is engaged with the rear linkage gear 76 of the cylindrical body 74 with the rotation of the cylindrical body 74. It slides leftward in the rear space 40b along the portion 42.

  Here, the free rotation gear 81 provided on the movable rack gear member 78 meshes with the rack gear 83a of the fixed rack gear member 83 provided on the unit body 38 (first box-like portion 41). Therefore, as the movable rack gear member 78 slides, the free rotating gear 81 rotates while sliding to the left along the fixed rack gear member 83. Further, since the rack gear 85a of the operating body 84 slidably supported by the rod-like member 50 is engaged with the free rotation gear 81, the free rotation gear 81 (movable rack gear member 78) is slidably moved. Accordingly, the operating body 84 moves from the original position toward the final position. Further, since the operating body 84 is sent from the original position toward the final position as the free rotation gear 81 rotates, in addition to the sliding movement amount of the free rotation gear 81 (movable rack gear member 78), The operating body 84 moves by the total amount of movement associated with the rotation of the rotating gear 81. In this manner, the movable rack gear member 78, the fixed rack gear member 83, and the free rotating gear 81 are interposed between the cylindrical body 74 and the operating body 84, thereby connecting the rear side of the cylindrical body 74. Compared with the configuration in which the gear 76 and the rack gear 85 a of the operating body 84 are directly connected, the operating body 84 (movable member 90) can be moved greatly with the rotation of the first drive motor 36. A large operation can be performed on the movable member 90 while suppressing the rotation speed.

  Further, since the first connecting portion 92a provided on the movable member 90 is rotatably connected to the connecting portion 89 formed on the operating body 84, the operating body 84 is switched from the original position to the switching position (see FIG. 23 to 25), the upper end of the movable member 90 moves to the left along the rod-like member 50. Here, the second connecting portion 122 provided at the lower end portion of the movable member 90 (sliding member 120) is inserted into the guide hole 67a of the protruding portion 67 formed in the support plate 65 provided in the back unit 30. The second connecting part 122 can be moved along the protruding part 67 (guide hole 67a), and the second connecting part 122 can rotate with respect to the protruding part 67 (guide hole 67a). It has become. Further, as described above, the rod-like member 50 on which the operating body 84 is slidably supported extends in the left-right direction, while the protruding portion 67 (guide hole 67a) of the support plate 65 extends in the left direction. It is formed so as to incline upward as it goes to.

  In this way, the extending direction of the rod-shaped member 50 and the extending direction of the protrusion 67 (guide hole 67a) are made to intersect so that the operating body 84 moves along the rod-shaped member 50. In contrast, the upper end of the movable member 90 is rotatably supported, and the lower end of the movable member 90 is rotatably supported while moving along the protrusion 67 (guide hole 67a). When the movable member 90 is moved along with the movement of the operating body 84, the positions of the connecting portion 89 and the first connecting portion 92a with respect to the rod-like member 50, and the second connecting portion 122 with respect to the protrusion 67 (guide hole 67a). The inclination posture of the movable member 90 changes appropriately according to the position. That is, when the movable member 90 is operated, the movable member 90 does not simply swing around the second connecting portion 122, and moves relative to the movable member 90 as the second connecting portion 122 moves. A combined movement of the tilting operation and the expansion / contraction operation can be performed, and the production effect by the operation of the movable member 90 can be improved.

  Further, when the operating body 84 moves to the switching position on the way from the original position to the end position, the second connecting portion 122 of the movable member 90 moves to the left end portion of the protruding portion 67 (guide hole 67a), The second connecting portion 122 abuts and engages with the end of the protruding portion 67 (guide hole 67a), and the movement of the second connecting portion 122 along the protruding portion 67 (guide hole 67a) is restricted. . For this reason, after the operating body 84 moves to the switching position (see FIGS. 23 to 25), the movable member 90 moves the second connecting portion 122 when the operating body 84 moves from the switching position to the final position. The movable body main body 91 constituting the movable member 90 extends with respect to the slide member 120 while tilting as the center (see FIGS. 26 to 28). That is, as shown in FIG. 3, the posture change of the movable member 90 while the operating body 84 moves from the original position to the switching position, and the movable member 90 while the operating body 84 moves from the switching position to the final position. The posture change can be made different, and the movable member 90 can make a complicated movement.

  When the operating body 84 moves from the final position to the original position along the rod-shaped member 50, the second connecting portion 122 of the movable member 90 is located at the lower right end along the protrusion 67 (guide hole 67a). When the position detection sensor 63 finally detects the position detection piece 87a of the operating body 84, the movable member 90 returns to the initial position. Here, the extending direction of the protruding portion 67 (guide hole 67 a) intersects the extending direction of the rod-shaped member 50, whereby the second connecting portion 122 of the movable member 90 is protruded. The sliding member 120 is accommodated in the accommodating space 106 of the movable body 91 by coming into contact with the opening edge of the (guide hole 67a) to become a resistance. That is, the movable member 90 can be shortened only by moving the operating body 84 from the final position to the original position along the rod-shaped member 50. Thus, since the movable member 90 can be expanded and contracted simply by moving the operating body 84 along the rod-shaped member 50, it is not necessary to provide a separate drive source for the expansion and contraction operation of the movable member 90. The configuration of the first movable effect device 35 can be simplified and the cost can be reduced.

  Next, the wiring connection structure of the movable member in the first movable effect device 35 will be described. In the movable member 90 according to the first embodiment, the flexible flat cable 112 is connected to the connector insertion portion 111 of the movable body LED substrate 110. Therefore, the followability of the wiring with respect to the operation of the movable member 90 is improved. The occurrence of disconnection or the like can be suppressed. The flexible flat cable 112 is bent in the width direction by bending the flexible flat cable 112 so as to be twisted. Here, in the movable member 90, a cover member 115 is disposed on the movable member 90 (second half body 98), and the flat plate surface 98 a of the movable member 90 (second half body 98) and the opposing plate portion 116 of the cover member 115. Since the bent portion 113 of the flexible flat cable 112 is sandwiched therebetween, excessive force is prevented from acting on the bent portion 113 of the flexible flat cable 112 when the movable member 90 is operated. Can do.

  That is, it is possible to effectively suppress the bending portion 113 of the flexible flat cable 112 from being repeatedly bent along with the operation of the movable member 90 and to prevent the flexible flat cable 112 from being disconnected. Further, since the bent portion 113 of the flexible flat cable 112 is covered with the cover member 115, it is ensured that the bent portion 113 of the flexible flat cable 112 is caught by any member during the operation of the movable member 90. Since it can prevent, disconnection of the cable 112 can be prevented more reliably.

  Further, when the cover member 115 is fixed to the movable member 90 (second half body 98), the guide protrusion 104 formed on the movable member 90 (second half body 98) has a first fitting formed on the cover member 115. Since the guide projection 104 is configured to be positioned close to the side edge of the flexible flat cable 112 while being fitted into the hole 118, it is assumed that the cable 112 is pulled by operating the movable member 90. In addition, the position of the movable member 90 (second half body 98) and the cover member 115 can be restricted to a predetermined position. As described above, since the guide protrusion 104 is provided, it is possible to prevent the flexible flat cable 112 from being displaced due to the operation of the movable member 90, and the force for pulling the flexible flat cable 112 during the operation of the movable member 90 can be prevented. Even if it acts, the bent portion 113 of the cable 112 can be prevented from being pulled out from between the movable member 90 and the cover member 115. Therefore, the certainty of protection of the bent part 113 of the flexible flat cable 112 can be improved. Further, since the guide protrusions 104 are positioned on both sides of the flexible flat cable 112, the movement of the cable 112 can be prevented more reliably. Further, since the guide protrusion 104 is positioned corresponding to the bent portion 113 in the flexible flat cable 112, when the cable 112 is pulled, the cable 112 is brought into contact with the folded corner. The movement of the bent portion can be reliably prevented.

  Next, the configuration of the first movable effect device according to the second embodiment will be described. In addition, in the 1st movable production | presentation apparatus 150 which concerns on Example 2, about the same structure and member as the 1st movable production | presentation apparatus 35 demonstrated in Example 1, the same code | symbol is attached | subjected and detailed description is abbreviate | omitted. To do.

  In the first embodiment described above, the protrusion 67 (guide hole) is arranged so as to approach the rod-shaped member 50 from the right end side to the right end side of the rod-shaped member 50 with respect to the support plate 65 in the first movable effect device 35. 67a). On the other hand, on the support plate 65 of the first movable effect device 150 according to the second embodiment, as shown in FIG. 29 and FIG. The portion 67 is formed so as to extend in the vertical direction, and the guide hole 67 a is formed so as to extend in the vertical direction along the protruding portion 67. And in the state which the said movable member 90 exists in an initial position, it is comprised so that the 2nd connection part 122 provided in this movable member 90 may be located in the lower end part of the said protrusion 67 (guide hole 67a). At this time, the slide member 120 of the movable member 90 is located at an insertion position where the slide member 120 is inserted into the accommodation space 106 of the movable body 91.

  That is, in the first movable effect device 150 according to the second embodiment, as the operating body 84 supporting the upper end portion of the movable member 90 at the initial position (see FIG. 29) moves from the original position toward the final position, The second connecting portion 122 of the movable member 90 moves upward along the protruding portion 67 (guide hole 67a), and the operating member 84 moves to the final position, so that the second connecting portion 122 becomes the protruding portion 67. While moving to the upper end of (guide hole 67a), the slide member 120 is pulled out from the accommodating space 106 of the movable body 91, and the movable member 90 extends to move to the movable position (see FIG. 30).

  As described above, even when the protrusion 67 (guide hole 67a) is formed to extend in the vertical direction, the movable member 90 is simply swung as in the first movable effect device 35 in the first embodiment. The movable member 90 can be caused to perform a combined movement of a tilting operation and an expansion / contraction operation without performing an operation, and the effect of the operation of the movable member 90 can be improved. Further, when the operating body 84 moves from the final position toward the original position, the second connecting portion 122 of the movable member 90 comes into contact with the opening edge of the protrusion 67 (guide hole 67a) to become a resistance. The slide member 120 moves relative to the insertion position accommodated in the accommodating space 106 of the movable body 91, and thereafter the movable member 90 returns to the initial position. As described above, also in the first movable effect device 150 according to the second embodiment, the movable member 90 can be expanded and contracted only by moving the operating body 84 along the rod-shaped member 50. There is no need to provide a separate drive source for the telescopic operation of the apparatus, and the apparatus configuration can be simplified and the cost can be reduced.

  Next, the configuration of the first movable effect device according to Example 3 will be described. In addition, in the 1st movable production | presentation apparatus which concerns on Example 3, about the same structure and member as the 1st movable production | presentation apparatus 35 demonstrated in Example 1, the same code | symbol is attached | subjected and detailed description is abbreviate | omitted. .

  As shown in FIG. 31, the first movable effect device according to the third embodiment is configured such that the wiring connection structure of the flexible flat cable 112 to the movable LED substrate 110 in the movable member 90 is the first movable effect according to the first example. Different from the device 35. That is, in the first movable effect device according to the third embodiment, the second member 98 of the movable member 90 is located farther from the connector insertion portion 111 than the bent portion 113 of the flexible flat cable 112. A third fitting hole 162 is formed. The cover member 165 attached to the second half body 98 is formed with a fitting projection 166 that protrudes toward the second half body 98 at a position corresponding to the third fitting hole 162. That is, when the cover member 165 is attached to the rear half 98 and the flexible flat cable 112 is sandwiched between the rear half 98 and the cover member 165, the position is farther from the connector insertion portion 111 than the bent portion 113. The cable 112 is pressed by the fitting protrusion 166 of the cover member 165 to be flexible, and the flexible portion of the cable 112 is configured to fit into the third fitting hole 162.

  Thus, in the first movable effect device according to Example 3, when the cover member 165 is attached to the rear half 98 and the flexible flat cable 112 is sandwiched between the rear half 98 and the cover member 165, Since the flexible portion of the cable 112 is fitted into the third fitting hole 162, even if the cable 112 is pulled when the movable member 90 is operated, the connector difference is greater than the fitting protrusion 166. There is an advantage that the force acting on the bent portion 113 of the cable 112 located on the side of the insertion portion 111 can be suppressed and the disconnection can be more reliably prevented.
