Description

  The present invention relates to a ball game machine such as a pachinko game machine and a variable winning device thereof, and more particularly to a technique for controlling the progress of a game in a ball game machine.
  Conventionally, among various types of ball game machines, the so-called first type pachinko game machine, the lottery is performed in response to the ball entering the start opening provided on the game board, Depending on the result of the lottery, symbols are displayed in a variable manner. In other words, a plurality of symbols are displayed in a display area such as a liquid crystal display provided substantially in the center of the game board while the symbols are varied (hereinafter, such a display is referred to as “symbol variation” or “variable display”). This gaming machine is known to shift to a special game when a combination of symbols when a plurality of rows of symbol variations are stopped has a specific form. Special games are also called jackpots, and a unit game with a predetermined period of time for opening a special prize opening provided on the game board is performed multiple times, and a predetermined number of prize balls are awarded for each entry to the special prize opening. A payout is made. As a result, more prize balls than normal games can be obtained (see, for example, Patent Document 1). The variable display of symbols in the display area is not limited to simply displaying multiple symbols in a variable manner. For example, an effect is made to increase the player's expectation, such as making it longer.
  Some gaming machines also shift to a specific game advantageous to the player, which is called a so-called probability variation game (hereinafter also referred to as “probability variation”) even after the special game is over. When a special game has occurred and the winning stop symbol at that time is in a specific mode, the probability change is started after the special game ends. In the probability change, a lottery with a higher probability of winning than the normal probability state is performed, and a new special game is generated relatively early. When the transition is made to such a probability change, a new special game is generated relatively early, so that the player's sense of expectation is further enhanced.
JP 2003-230714 A
  In recent years, a jackpot technique called so-called 2R jackpot is adopted in which the winning prize opening is opened only for a very short time, and then it shifts to a profit state after a special game while generating virtually no profit of the winning ball. The model is known. In order to distinguish such 2R jackpot from the above-mentioned normal jackpot, the latter may be called 15R jackpot. Since 2R jackpots also generate special games, they can be accompanied with certainty. That is, it is possible to generate a so-called sudden probability change in which the probability change is made without the knowledge of the player, and to give an impact to the player. In addition, there is a case where a technique called small win is used in combination with a special game such as 2R jackpot, in which the big winning opening is opened only for a short time in a manner very similar to the appearance, but does not shift to the profit state. The purpose is to raise the player's expectation in a form that is clearly indistinguishable in terms of appearance, whether 2R jackpot or small hit has occurred. In these models, the effect of the resurrection is enhanced by not showing as clearly as possible whether or not the transition to profit status has been made.
  By the way, some gaming machines provide a continuation condition for a special game, and continue a unit game for a continuation upper limit number of times (for example, 15 times) preset on the condition that the continuation condition is satisfied. For example, there is a case where a specific area called a V zone is provided inside the special winning opening, and the entry into the specific area is a continuation condition. In such a gaming machine, if a specific game is not entered into a specific area, the special game will be terminated in that unit game, so-called punk, and the benefits of the special game will be fully obtained. There was a situation that could not be given to the player. In order to eliminate this point, in order to ensure that game balls can enter a specific area, a mechanical distribution device is provided inside the big prize opening, and at least one game ball enters the specific area. Proposals have also been made. On the other hand, as a player, it is a fact that it is a model that suddenly has an impact such as a probable change or a model with a high probability of jackpot, and there is room for improvement in consideration of the design of the ball.
  Also, when providing multiple types of jackpots with different number of unit games, such as 2R jackpot and 15R jackpot, since the profit status is greatly different between the jackpots, it is clearly shown to the player which jackpot There are also industry requests (industry regulations) that should be done. However, when trying to respond to such a request, it was recognized that it was not a small hit when it was shown that it was a 2R big hit, and there was also a problem that it was impossible to obtain an effect with the above-mentioned roar.
  In order to solve such a problem, there is provided a gaming machine in which it is not necessary to clearly indicate the upper limit number of continuations by setting the upper limit number of unit games to only one type of 15 (15R). In this pachinko machine, when sudden change occurs suddenly, it is set to stop the total digestion time of 15R jackpot in a short time by stopping the unit game only in a very short time, and also a small hit The appearance is very similar to the short 15R jackpot.
  With the pachinko gaming machine described above, it is possible to make use of the effect of suddenly winning big hits or small hits, but the winning prize opening repeats opening and closing operations for a very short time 15 times. , And suddenly deviated from the main purpose of the sudden change of probability that "the change of probability will be made without the player's knowledge".
  The present invention has been made in view of these problems, and a first object of the present invention is to play a special game by reducing the risk of puncture as much as possible even in a pachinko game machine in which a special game has a continuation condition. The purpose is to give enough profits to.
  In addition, the second purpose is to secure a difference in the profit status of each hit in a ball game machine, while making it difficult to understand which win has been won, and to make it possible to stir the player's interest An object of the present invention is to provide a gaming machine in which a probability change is made before a player notices it as much as possible without making a special game redundant even when a sudden probability change occurs.
  In order to solve the above-described problems, an aspect of the present invention provides a first state that is advantageous for a player whose winning area is opened toward the front when a predetermined condition is satisfied, and a player whose winning area is closed. In a variable winning device for a ball game machine that can be changed to an unfavorable second state, it is provided so as to extend to the left and right in the winning area, and at least a part thereof is formed to tilt downward to either the left or right. With an inclined ball passage. And in the back of the first part which is a predetermined downstream part of the inclined sphere passage, while having a first entrance where a game ball can enter, in the back of the second part which is a downstream part further than the first part, It has a second entrance where a game ball can enter. Further, the first portion of the inclined sphere passage is inclined downward toward the second portion and is also inclined downward, while the second portion of the inclined sphere passage is inclined downward toward the back, A step is provided between the first part and the second part or at the boundary between the first part and the second part where the game ball flowing down from the first part side falls.
  According to this aspect, the game balls that have entered the winning area of the variable winning device flow down along the inclined ball path. Since the first part located in the middle of the inclined sphere passage is inclined toward the front side, the game ball flowing down to the first part is placed in the first entrance opening located behind the first part. It is difficult to enter the ball and it flows down as it passes through the first part. On the other hand, since the second part, which is the downstream part of the first part, is inclined downward toward the back, the game ball that has flowed down to the second part is guided to the back of the second part, and the second incoming ball The ball comes into the mouth. For this reason, it is possible to reliably guide the game ball that entered the winning area to the second entrance without providing a movable member or the like for controlling the flow of the game ball in the winning area of the variable winning device. It becomes. On the other hand, if the game ball passes through the first part of the inclined ball passage and further falls from the step, the game ball may come into contact with another game ball that has flowed down first, It is also assumed that it is bounced back by an action such as hitting. However, the provision of the step prevents the game ball from flowing backward (ascending) through the inclined ball passage. That is, the game ball that has once passed through the first part is prevented from flowing backward and entering the first entrance, so that the game ball flowing down the inclined ball passage can be almost surely guided to the second entrance. Become. Therefore, if such a variable winning device is applied to a ball game machine and the entrance to the second entrance is a continuation condition of the special game, the risk of the above-mentioned puncture is reduced as much as possible and the game by the special game It will be possible to sufficiently grant benefits to the person.
  You may have the inner wall which the game ball which flowed down contact | abuts to the most downstream end part of an inclination ball path. The first part and the second part are adjacent to each other, and a partition wall is provided to form a step at the boundary between the first entrance and the second entrance, and the second part is located at the most downstream part of the inclined sphere passage. May be located.
  According to this aspect, the flow velocity of the game ball flowing down the inclined ball passage is killed by hitting the inner wall of the most downstream end. On the other hand, since the second part is located at the most downstream part of the inclined ball passage, the game ball is directly introduced to the second entrance by the inclination of the second part. As a result, it is possible to enter the second entrance into the second entrance almost certainly. In addition, by providing a partition wall at the boundary between the first entrance and the second entrance, a game ball once directed to the second entrance can enter the first entrance by an external force. Is regulated. When a plurality of game balls are continuously won in the winning area, it is assumed that the plurality of game balls are sandwiched between the partition wall and the inner wall, thereby causing a ball clogging. However, according to this aspect, the first part and the second part are arranged adjacent to each other. It is exceptionally possible for a game ball that is clogged to enter the first entrance and the second entrance autonomously, and the clog can be eliminated.
  A sensor having a passing gate for allowing a game ball to pass therethrough and having a sensing unit for detecting the passing of the game ball to the passing gate, the passing gate being provided at the position of the first entrance. A sensor having a first gate sensor and a passage gate through which the game ball passes, and a sensor for sensing the passage of the game ball to the passage gate. A second entrance sensor, a first entrance sensor, and a second entrance sensor are disposed adjacent to each other at the position of the ball opening, and the first entrance sensor and the second entrance sensor are provided by the variable prize winning device. When in the open state, each passing gate may be arranged so as to be inclined downward toward the front so that it can be visually recognized from the front side.
  According to this aspect, the first entrance sensor and the second entrance sensor are arranged at the positions of the first entrance and the second entrance, respectively, so that the game ball to each entrance is received. An entry can be detected at the entry timing, and each entry information can be used to control the progress of the game in the ball game machine. Moreover, since each installation sensor can be disposed so as to be inclined downward toward the front, the installation height can be suppressed, so that the variable winning device can be made compact.
  Another aspect of the present invention is a ball game machine. This ball game machine is provided with a game board in which a game area is formed, a start position provided in a predetermined position of the game area, and a game ball can be entered, and a lottery determination is performed by entering the start opening The winning / losing lottery means, which is provided at a predetermined position in the game area, is released toward the front according to the result of the winning / failing lottery, and the entrance of the game ball becomes an opportunity for paying out a predetermined number of prize balls. Opening / closing pattern determining means for selecting an opening / closing pattern according to the result of the lottery from a plurality of types of opening / closing patterns in which the opening / closing mode of the winning prize opening is determined, and a large winning opening that guides the game ball to an internal specific area or a non-specific area Open / close control means for controlling opening / closing of the prize winning opening according to the selected opening / closing pattern, a special game transition condition that is a condition for shifting to a special game including a plurality of unit games for opening the prize winning opening, and a special After game transition Special game operating condition holding means for holding a special game continuation condition, which is a condition for continuing the special game, and a result indicating that the success / failure lottery indicates the transition to the special game, and it is determined that the special game transition condition is satisfied The special game continuation condition is started, and it is determined that the special game continuation condition is satisfied when the game ball passes through a specific area in the big prize opening in each unit game of the special game. Regardless of the preset upper limit number of unit games, special game control means for continuously executing special games, and operation for changing the allowance of passing a specific area of the game ball when the special winning opening is opened and closed Possible adjusting means, and according to the result of the lottery determination, the entrance control means for changing the passing tolerance by the adjusting means between the normal passing rate state and the low passing rate state where it is difficult to pass therethrough, Obtain.
  The special game operation condition holding means holds a special special game transition condition for transitioning to a special special game for shifting the game state after the special game to a more advantageous state than the normal state as a special game transition condition. The control means starts the execution of the special special game when it is determined that the special special game transition condition is satisfied as a result of the success / failure lottery indicating the transition to the special special game. In the unit game, when the result indicates the transition to the special game, the passing allowance is in the normal passing rate state, whereas when the winning or failing lottery results in the transition to the specific special game, The adjusting means is operated so that the pass allowance is in a low pass rate state, and the big prize opening is provided so as to extend left and right inside, and at least a part thereof tilts downward to either the left or right. It comprises inclined ball passages formed.
  And it has the 1st entrance which becomes an entrance to a non-specific field in the back of the 1st part which is a predetermined downstream part of an inclined sphere passage, and it is specified in the back of the 2nd part which is a further downstream part from the 1st part. A second entrance is provided as an entrance to the area. Further, the first portion of the inclined sphere passage is inclined downward toward the second portion and is also inclined downward, while the second portion of the inclined sphere passage is inclined downward toward the back, A step is provided between the first part and the second part or at the boundary between the first part and the second part where the game ball flowing down from the first part side falls.
  Here, the “large winning a prize opening” may be provided as a single big winning opening commonly used for a normal special game and a specific special game. Alternatively, a special winning opening used for normal special games and a special winning opening used for specific special games may be provided as separate components. The number of times of opening / closing the big prize opening per “unit game” may be one or more. The “adjustment means” may be an adjustment mechanism that can adjust the opening / closing operation of the big prize opening itself so as to change the passage tolerance of the specific area of the game ball.
  According to this aspect, the provision of the inclined ball passage prevents the so-called puncture from occurring as much as possible because the game ball won in the special prize opening is almost surely guided to the specific area when shifting to the normal special game. It becomes possible to do. Further, since a mechanical distribution device or the like is not required in the special winning opening, cost reduction and design freedom are ensured. On the other hand, when transitioning to a specific special game, since the ease of passing through a specific area is low, the possibility of repeating a unit game is low, and the gaming state is switched to a normal game at an early stage, so many prize balls cannot be expected. On the contrary, it is allowed to relatively increase the probability of transitioning to a special game (hit probability) from the standpoint of appearance design. As a result, it is expected that the player selects the gaming machine and continues the game, that is, the operating rate of the gaming machine is improved.
  It should be noted that any combination of the above-described constituent elements, or the constituent elements and expressions of the present invention may be mutually replaced between methods, apparatuses, systems, computer programs, recording media storing computer programs, data structures, etc. This is effective as an embodiment of the present invention.
  According to the bullet ball game machine of the present invention, even a pachinko game machine that has a special game with a continuation condition can reduce the risk of puncture as much as possible and sufficiently give the player a benefit from the special game. it can. In addition, while guaranteeing the difference in profit status for each ball game machine, it makes it difficult to understand which win was won, making it possible to inspire the player's interest and suddenly changing the probability. Even when the game is generated, it is possible to provide a gaming machine in which the probability change transition is made before the player notices it as much as possible without making the special game redundant.

Example 1
The pachinko gaming machine shown in the present embodiment corresponds to a conventional type 1 pachinko gaming machine. When the game ball enters the start winning opening, a winning / losing lottery is executed. When the lottery result is “big hit”, a special game in which the large winning opening repeatedly opens and closes is started. When there is a ball in the big prize opening, a predetermined number of balls are paid out each time, which is advantageous to the player. In this embodiment, a normal jackpot (referred to as “normal jackpot”) and a specific jackpot (“specific jackpot”) are provided as jackpots. The normal jackpot indicates a shift to a normal special game (referred to as “normal special game”), and the specific jackpot indicates a shift to a specific special game (“specific special game”). Each special game includes 15 unit games (games that become a unit when the special game is continued), but the opening state of the special prize opening and the special game continuation conditions are different from each other.
  In other words, in the special special game, the unit game is repeatedly continued until the maximum number of continuations of 15 is reached, but in the specific special game, if the game ball passes through a specific area provided in the big prize opening, the next unit game is It is a continuation condition to execute. The upper limit number of times of continuation is 15 times as in the normal special game. In other words, the normal special game is promised to be continued up to the maximum number of continuations, but the specific special game ends with the unit game if there is no passing of the game ball to the specific area. In addition, in the special special game, a predetermined number or more (10 or more winnings) or a predetermined time (30 seconds) is set as the end condition of the unit game. In the special special game, the predetermined number or more (End of 10 balls or more) or the passage of a predetermined time (0.2 seconds) is a unit game end condition. For this reason, in general special games, it is possible to obtain a relatively large number of balls (prize balls) because the opening time of the big prize opening is long. I can't expect a ball. In a specific special game, a so-called puncture in which a game ball cannot be entered as a continuation condition is likely to occur, and it is highly likely that the game will end in the first unit game (one round). However, since the special jackpot is set so that the probability changes, the player is advantageous in that the probability change transition is promised in the normal game after the specific special game.
  On the other hand, when the result of the winning / losing lottery becomes a predetermined result called “small winning”, a small winning game in which the big winning opening is opened for a short time is executed. The small hit game is executed as a special game including one unit game. This small hit game corresponds to one time of a plurality of unit games constituting a specific special game. In other words, in this embodiment, even in a small hit game, since the opening time of the big prize opening is short, it is virtually impossible to expect a game. Small hits do not change with certainty, and do not change the big hit probability of the normal game before and after. Therefore, the profit state is higher for a player with a specific jackpot than with a jackpot. However, if a jackpot is generated from the probability variation state (high probability state), the game state after the special game falls to the normal state (low probability state) unless the jackpot is accompanied by probability variation. Even if a win occurs, the gaming state after the small hit game is maintained in a certain change state. In this embodiment, the specific special game is quickly punctured in this way, so that it is difficult to distinguish between the two games by making it look the same in the appearance in the opening mode of the small win game and the big prize opening. Realize a game that resonates with the expectation of the player who wants.
FIG. 1 shows a basic structure on the front side of a pachinko gaming machine.
Hereinafter, a so-called first type pachinko gaming machine, which is conventionally known as a bullet ball gaming machine, will be described as an example. The pachinko gaming machine 10 is mainly composed of a gaming machine frame and a gaming board.

The lower ball tray 16 has a mechanism for storing and extracting game balls. A speaker 18 is provided between the upper ball tray 15 and the lower ball tray 16, and a sound effect corresponding to the gaming state is output.
  The game board 50 has an out port 58, a special symbol display device 61, an effect display device 60, and a start winning port (hereinafter referred to as “start port”) 62 on a game area 52 defined by the outer rail 54 and the inner rail 56. , Center ornament 64, first grand prize opening 91, second major prize opening 92, operation opening 68, and general prize opening 72. Furthermore, in the game area 52, a plurality of mechanisms such as a game nail and a windmill (not shown) are installed. The start port 62 includes a start winning detection device 74 for detecting the entrance of a game ball and a normal electric accessory solenoid 76 for expanding the expanding mechanism of the start port 62. When the expansion mechanism of the start port 62 is expanded, the opening width of the start port 62 is expanded and the ease of entering the ball is improved. The start winning detection device 74 is a sensor that detects the entry of a game ball into the start port 62, and generates start win information indicating the winning at the time of entering. The general winning opening 72 includes a general winning detecting device 73 for detecting the entering of a game ball. The general winning detection device 73 is a sensor that detects the entry of a game ball into the general winning opening 72, and generates general winning information indicating the winning at the time of winning.
  The first big prize opening 91 is provided as a big prize opening corresponding to a specific special game and a small hit game, and the second big prize opening 92 is provided as a big prize opening corresponding to a normal special game. The first grand prize winning port 91 includes a winning prize detecting device 75 for detecting the entrance of a game ball, and a big prize winning port solenoid 80 for opening and closing the first big prize winning port 91. The winning detection device 75 includes a specific region passage detection device 77 and a non-specific region passage detection device 78 as described in detail later. The winning detection device 75 is a sensor that detects the entry of a game ball into the first grand prize opening 91, and generates first big prize opening winning information indicating the winning at the time of winning. The specific area passage detection device 77 is a sensor that detects that a game ball has passed through a specific area provided in the first grand prize winning opening 91, and generates specific area passage information indicating the passage of the game ball when it passes. To do. The non-specific area passage detection device 78 is a sensor that detects that a game ball has passed through the non-specific area provided in the first grand prize winning opening 91, and indicates the passage of the game ball when it passes. Generate information. However, in this embodiment, due to the structure, a game ball that has entered the first grand prize winning opening 91 passes through a specific area or a non-specific area. For this reason, the specific area passage information by the specific area passage detection device 77 or the non-specific region passage information by the non-specific region passage detection device 78 is processed as the first big prize opening prize information.
  The first big winning opening 91 is a horizontal rectangular winning opening that is opened when the special symbol 192 stops in a predetermined manner showing a specific jackpot and when stopped in a predetermined manner showing a small jackpot. The first grand prize winning port 91 is provided at a position above the out port 58. The second grand prize opening 92 includes a prize detection device 79 for detecting the entry of a game ball and a big prize opening solenoid 81 for opening and closing the second big prize opening 92. The winning detection device 79 is a sensor that detects the entry of a game ball into the second grand prize opening 92, and generates second big prize opening winning information indicating the winning at the time of winning. The second big winning opening 92 is a horizontal rectangular winning opening that is opened when the special symbol 192 is stopped in a predetermined manner showing a normal jackpot. The second big winning opening 92 is provided at a position on the upper right side of the out opening 58, that is, a position where the game ball does not enter unless the player makes a different hitting method such as right hitting.
  The special symbol display device 61 provided on the left side of the game area 52 and the effect display device 60 provided in the approximate center of the game area 52 have a variation of the special symbol 192 on each screen and a decoration linked to the special symbol 192. The variation of the effect image including the symbol 190 is displayed (hereinafter, such display is referred to as “symbol variation” or “variation display”). Here, the special symbol 192 is a symbol corresponding to the result of the lottery performed when the game ball is dropped into the start port 62. If the symbol pattern when the variation display of the special symbol 192 is stopped is a symbol determined to be a big hit or a small hit, the timing at which the stopped symbol is displayed becomes the occurrence timing of a big hit or a small hit. The special symbol display device 61 is display means composed of, for example, 7 segment LEDs.
  The effect display device 60 is a liquid crystal display that variably displays the decorative symbol 190 in a manner interlocked with the variation display of the special symbol 192. The decorative symbol 190 is a symbol for visually rendering the lottery result display indicated by the special symbol 192. The effect display device 60 displays, as the decorative symbol 190, for example, a plurality of rows of moving images of symbol variation simulating a slot machine game in the central area of the screen. The effect display device 60 is constituted by a liquid crystal display in this embodiment, but may be constituted by a mechanical rotating device such as a drum or other display means such as an LED. Since the special symbol 192 does not necessarily have a role of production, in this embodiment, the special symbol 192 is displayed in an inconspicuous size on the special symbol display device 61 at the lower left of the production display device 60. In the case of adopting a technique in which a decorative role is not displayed and a decorative symbol is not displayed, the special symbol may be displayed on a liquid crystal display such as the effect display device 60.

The lottery hold lamp 20 is composed of four lamps, and displays the number of lottery holds depending on the number of lights. The number of lottery holds is the number of lottery results won to the start port 62 during symbol variation or special game, and indicates the number of winning balls for which symbol variation has not yet been executed. The operation hold lamp 22 is also composed of four lamps, and displays the number of hold of normal symbol fluctuations depending on the number of lights. The number of normal symbol fluctuations held is the number of game balls that have passed through the operation port 68 during the fluctuation of the normal symbol, and indicates the number of normal symbol lotteries for which the fluctuation of the normal symbol has not yet been executed. Furthermore, game effect lamps 90 are respectively provided above and below the effect display device 60. The operation button 82 is a button that the player operates to input a predetermined instruction to the gaming machine. The operation button 82 is provided on the outer wall surface near the upper ball tray 15.
  When the player turns the launch handle 17 by hand, the game balls stored in the upper ball tray 15 are guided one by one to the inner rail 56 and the outer rail 54 with a strength corresponding to the turning angle, thereby playing the game area. To 52. When the player fixes the rotation position of the firing handle 17 by hand, the game ball is repeatedly fired at regular time intervals. In this embodiment, the game is designed so that 100 game balls are launched per minute. The game ball launched to the upper part of the game area 52 falls in a direction according to the way of hitting while hitting a plurality of game nails and windmills. When a game ball drops into each of the general winning opening 72, the start opening 62, the first large winning opening 91, and the second large winning opening 92, the winning ball corresponding to the type of the winning opening is the upper ball tray 15 or It is paid out to the lower ball tray 16. A game ball dropped into each winning hole such as the general winning hole 72 is processed as a safe ball, and a game ball dropped into the out hole 58 is processed as an out ball. Each winning opening includes a gate type through which a game ball passes. In this application, “incoming”, “entering”, and “winning” include “passing”.
  When the game ball falls into the start port 62, the special symbol 192 and the decorative symbol 190 are variably displayed on the special symbol display device 61 and the effect display device 60. The variable display of the special symbol 192 and the decorative symbol 190 is stopped after the elapse of the display time determined prior to the display. When the special symbol 192 and the decorative symbol 190 at the time of the stop are symbols indicating a big hit, the game shifts to a special game that is more advantageous to the player than the normal game, and the first grand prize port 91 or the second big prize port The opening / closing operation 92 is started. In the case of a normal jackpot, the decorative symbol 190 simulating a slot machine game takes a display mode in which three symbols are matched. In this embodiment, the second big prize opening 92 is opened in the normal special game. The second big winning opening 92 is closed once, for example, after being opened for about 30 seconds or after 10 or more game balls are dropped. Such opening and closing of the second big prize opening 92 is repeated a predetermined number of times (for example, 15 times). That is, a predetermined time (30 seconds) or a predetermined number (10 balls or more) of balls entered from the start of the opening of the second big prize opening 92 is set as a condition for ending the unit game constituting the normal special game.
  On the other hand, in the case of a special jackpot, the decorative symbol 190 takes a display mode in which the three symbols are consecutive odd or even symbols. In the present embodiment, the first grand prize winning opening 91 is opened in the specific special game. The specific special game is also composed of 15 unit games, and is formally the same number of unit games as the normal special game, but the next unit game is executed when the game ball passes the specific area in each unit game. That is, it is set as a continuation condition for continuing a specific special game. In this embodiment, a unique opening / closing pattern of the special winning opening is set as the specific special game, and the opening time of the large winning opening is shorter than that of the normal special game. Details of the opening / closing operation of the special winning opening in each special game will be described later. Further, when the special symbol 192 and the decorative symbol 190 at the time of stop are symbols indicating a small hit, the game shifts to a small hit game, and the first big winning opening 91 is opened and closed in a short time. Even in the case of this small hit, the decorative symbol 190 takes a display form in which the three symbols are odd or even consecutive symbols. Details of the opening / closing operation in the small hit game will be described later.
  In the normal game after the special game is over, in principle, a variable time shortening game (hereinafter referred to as “time reduction” as appropriate), which is one of the specific games, is started. In the variation time shortening game, the variation time of the special symbol and the decorative symbol is shortened from the normal time. The variation time of the special symbol and the decorative symbol is returned to the original variation time after the variation display of a predetermined variation number is performed. When a special game occurs and the winning stop pattern at that time is in a specific mode, a probability variation game (hereinafter referred to as “probability change” as appropriate) that is one of the specific games after the special game ends Be started. In the probability variation game, a lottery with a higher win probability than the normal probability state is performed, and a new special game is generated relatively early.

Similarly, each functional block included in the sub-board 104 may be configured such that any one of them is mounted on the main board 102 instead of the sub-board 104.
  The entrance determination means 110 determines whether or not a game ball has entered each winning opening. When receiving the start winning information, the winning determination means 110 determines that the game ball has won the start opening 62, and receives the first big winning opening winning information, determines that the gaming ball has won the first big winning opening 91. When the second grand prize opening winning information is received, it is determined that the game ball has won the second big winning opening 92, and when the general winning information is received, it is determined that the gaming ball has won the general winning opening 72. The ball entry determining unit 110 determines that the game ball has passed the specific area when receiving the specific area passage information, and determines that the game ball has passed through the operation hole 68 when receiving the operation hole passage information. In this embodiment, as will be described later, the pitch determination means 110 receives the specific area passing information and the non-specific area passing information as the first grand prize opening winning information.
  The success / failure lottery means 112 accepts a random number value to determine whether or not to shift to a special game that is more advantageous to the player than the normal game when the game ball enters the start port 62. Get as a value. For example, the success / failure lottery value is acquired from a value range from “0” to “65535”. The “random number” in the present application may not be a mathematically generated random number, but may be a pseudo-random number generated by a hardware random number, a software random number, or the like. The success / failure lottery means 112 holds a plurality of success / failure tables to be referred to in the success / failure determination. In the plurality of success / failure tables, the determination result of winning or losing is associated with the winning / losing lottery value, and the success / failure probability is determined according to the associated winning range setting.
  The success / failure lottery means 112 refers to a success / failure table for determination of success / failure based on a normal probability in a normal state (hereinafter, referred to as “normally normal / failure table” as appropriate), and a success / failure table (hereinafter referred to as a normal / probability table) in which the winning probability is higher than the normal probability. Refer to the “probability appropriateness determination table”) as appropriate. In this embodiment, in the normal success / failure table, only when the success / failure lottery value falls within the range of 0 to 399 is a big hit. In the probability variation success / failure table, the jackpot range is expanded, and not only when the success / failure lottery value falls within the range of 0 to 399 but also when it falls within the range of 400 to 3999. Thus, the range corresponding to the jackpot changes according to the gaming state.
  In the present embodiment, as described above, the special game unit game end condition is 30 seconds from the start of the opening of the second big prize opening 92 or a normal special game in which 10 or more balls are entered, A special special game is provided in which 0.2 seconds have elapsed from the start of opening of the big winning opening 91 or ten or more balls have been entered. The former opening time of 30 seconds is a time value that allows a plurality of game balls to enter the second grand prize winning opening 92 by design, and many games are expected as a special game. On the other hand, the latter opening time of 0.2 seconds is a time value that can substantially prevent entry into the first grand prize winning port 91 as well as entry of more than 10 balls, by design, There is no expectation of a special game. That is, even if there is a game ball already staying in the game area 52 when the first grand prize winning opening 91 is opened, the game ball is moved downward by a mechanism such as a game nail or a windmill in the game area 52. Due to the characteristics of the change, it is difficult to enter the ball during the opening period of the first big winning opening 91.
  Further, in a normal special game, a unit game is unconditionally repeated 15 times. On the other hand, in the special special game, the unit game can be repeated up to 15 times formally, but the game ball entering the special winning opening (passing through the specific area) is a continuation condition. Moreover, since the opening time of the special winning opening is extremely short, there is a high possibility that it will be completed in one unit game. In other words, while the special special game has a relatively long total opening time of the special winning opening, the special special game has a very short total opening time of the large winning opening. In addition, although the small hit game is composed of one unit game, the opening time of the big prize opening per time is extremely short like the specific special game. Therefore, in the following description, the special special game is also referred to as “long-term open game”, and the specific special game and the small hit game are collectively referred to as “short-term open game”.
  Among the cases where the winning / failing lottery value does not correspond to the jackpot range, the jackpot is awarded when the lottery value falls within a predetermined range. In this embodiment, regardless of whether or not it is in a probable change state, the winning lottery value is a small hit when it falls within the range of 65000 to 65535. In this way, if it does not correspond to the jackpot, it is all “out of” originally, but in this example, among the cases where it does not correspond to the jackpot, especially the winning lottery value range when it does not correspond to the jackpot Expressed as “out”.
  The success / failure lottery means 112 refers to any of the plurality of success / failure tables and determines whether or not the success / failure lottery value is a win. The determination result by the success / failure lottery means 112 is variably displayed in a special symbol form on the special symbol display device 61. In addition, a decorative symbol that shows the determination result by the success / failure lottery means 112 is displayed in a variable manner on the effect display device 60.
  The symbol determination means 114 determines the stop symbol of the special symbol to be displayed on the special symbol display device 61 according to the lottery result by the success / failure lottery means 112. Moreover, the symbol determination means 114 determines the stop symbol of the normal symbol displayed on the normal symbol display device 59 by lottery. The stop symbol is a symbol to be displayed at the end of symbol variation. The symbol determination means 114 holds a symbol range table to be referred to in order to determine a special symbol or a normal symbol stop symbol.
  The symbol determination means 114 acquires a symbol determination lottery value for determining a special symbol, and determines the stop symbol of the special symbol according to the determination result of the success / failure lottery means 112 and the symbol determination lottery value. The symbol determination unit 114 sends data indicating the determined stop symbol to the main display control unit 118, the symbol mode determination unit 131, and the effect determination unit 132.
  The symbol determining means 114 acquires a lottery random number for determining a normal symbol when the game ball passes through the operation port 68, and determines a stop symbol of the normal symbol according to the lottery random number. When the stop symbol of the normal symbol is a specific symbol, the opening / closing control means 124 expands the normal electric accessory at the start port 62 for a predetermined time.
  The variation pattern determination means 115 stores a plurality of types of variation patterns in which variation modes from the variation start to the stop when the special symbol is variably displayed are defined. A plurality of types of variation patterns are defined on the assumption that there are various variation times, short and long, and that symbol variation is also performed by a decorative symbol composed of a plurality of symbols in the variation time. In each variation pattern, a variation display time is defined for each pattern as an end condition of the symbol variation, and the variation of the special symbol and the decorative symbol is stopped when the variation display time elapses.
  The variation pattern determination unit 115 holds a plurality of pattern selection tables to be referred to in order to determine the variation pattern. In the plurality of pattern selection tables, different relationships are defined as correspondence relationships between the plurality of variation patterns and the lottery values. The variation pattern determination means 115 acquires a pattern lottery value for determining the variation pattern. The variation pattern determining means 115 selects any variation pattern from a plurality of types of variation patterns according to the result of the success / failure lottery and the pattern lottery value according to the pattern selection table corresponding to the gaming state. The variation pattern determination unit 115 sends data indicating the determined variation pattern to the main display control unit 118, the symbol mode determination unit 131, and the effect determination unit 132.
  The variation pattern determination means 115 refers to the pattern selection table for removal when the result of the determination is wrong, and refers to the pattern selection table for normal jackpot when it is a normal jackpot. Further, when the determination result is a specific big hit or a small hit, a pattern selection table for a specific big hit or a small hit is referred to. This pattern selection table also includes a pattern selection table that is referred to when the time is short and a pattern selection table corresponding to the number of reserved lottery results.
  In the present embodiment, if the result of the determination is wrong, any variation pattern of super reach, normal reach, or no reach may be selected. In this reach production, when a variation pattern with reach is selected, if one more symbols are arranged by the decorative symbol 190, the symbol variation through the state of winning symbol combination is displayed. This is an effect that increases the player's expectation.
  The hold control means 116 holds the winning / losing lottery value acquired by the winning / failing lottery means 112 as a holding ball. The success / failure lottery value is accumulated until the number of holds reaches a predetermined upper limit. The upper limit of the number of holds is 4.
  The main display control means 118 displays the result of the lottery by the success / failure lottery means 112 as a special symbol variation display as a special symbol variation display according to the stop symbol determined by the symbol determination unit 114 and the variation pattern determined by the variation pattern determination unit 115 It is displayed on the device 61. The main display control means 118 transmits the change start command and the change stop command to the effect operation control means 134 at the timing for starting and stopping the change display of the special symbol, thereby causing the main display control means 118 and the effect operation. The fluctuation display by the control means 134 is synchronized and interlocked. The main display control means 118 displays the normal symbol variation on the normal symbol display device 59.
  The special game operation condition holding means 176 includes a special game transition condition for transitioning to a special game including a unit game involving a plurality of unit games accompanied by opening of the first grand prize port 91 and the second grand prize port 92, and after the transition of the special game. The special game continuation condition for continuing the special game is held. The special game operation condition holding unit 176 includes a long-term operation condition holding unit 178 and a short-term special game operation condition holding unit 179. The long-term operating condition holding means 178 holds a long-term operating condition that is a condition for shifting to a long-term open game. The long-term operating condition is a result indicating that the game is shifted to the normal special game in the lottery, and the content of the condition is that the symbol variation corresponding to the lottery is stopped.
  The short-term special game operation condition holding means 179 holds a short-term special game operation condition that is a condition for shifting to a special special game that is a kind of special game as a short-term open game. The short-term special game operating condition is a result indicating that the game is shifted to the specific special game in the lottery, and the content of the condition is that the symbol variation corresponding to the lottery is stopped.
  The special game operation condition holding means 176 holds the long-term operation condition and the short-term special game operation condition as special game operation conditions. The special game operation condition is a result indicating that the game shifts to the special game in the lottery, and the content of the condition is that the symbol variation corresponding to the lottery is stopped.
  The small hit game operation condition holding means 180 holds a condition for shifting to a small hit game including a unit game with a short opening of the first big winning opening 91. The short-term operating condition holding means 181 includes the small hit game operating condition holding means 180. The small hit game operating condition holding means 180 holds a small hit operating condition (short term operating condition) that is a condition for shifting to a small hit game as a short-term open game. The small hitting operating condition is a result indicating that the game is shifted to the small hitting game in the lottery, and the content of the condition is that the symbol variation corresponding to the lottery is stopped.
  The special game operation condition holding means 176, that is, the long-term operation condition holding means 178 and the short-term special game operation condition holding means 179 hold a probability change special game transition condition for shifting to a probability change state after the end of the special game. Whether or not the probability change special game transition condition is satisfied is determined based on the result of the success / failure lottery by the success / failure lottery means 112 and the type of the special symbol determined by the symbol determination means 114. In this embodiment, after the specific special game is over, the state is surely shifted to the probability changing state.
  The special game control means 120 controls the execution processing of the normal special game when the success / failure lottery result by the success / failure lottery means 112 is a normal jackpot. The normal special game is a game in which the opening / closing operation of the second grand prize opening 92 is continuously performed a plurality of times, and is constituted by a plurality of unit games. If the number of continuations of the unit game has not reached the upper limit number (15 in this embodiment), the special game control means 120 starts the next unit game after the end of the current unit game. When a unit game has exhausted the upper limit, the normal special game is terminated. The special game control means 120 controls the execution process of the specific special game when the result of the success / failure lottery by the success / failure lottery means 112 is a specific jackpot. The special special game is a game that is set so that the opening / closing operation of the first grand prize winning opening 91 can be continuously performed a plurality of times, and is configured by a plurality of unit games. The special game control means 120 is provided on condition that the game ball passes through a specific area in the first big winning opening 91 if the number of continuations of the unit game has not reached the upper limit number (15 times in this embodiment). After the end of the unit game, the next unit game is started. In this embodiment, since the opening time of the first big winning opening 91 in the specific special game is extremely short, the possibility that the unit game is continued is extremely low. When it is digested, the specific special game is terminated.
  The special game control means 120 includes a long-term open game control means 125 and a short-term special game control means 127. The long-term open game control means 125 executes a normal special game as a long-term open game when the result of the lottery determination indicates a shift to the long-term open game and the long-term operation condition is satisfied. The long-term open game control means 125 repeats the unit game 15 times as a normal special game, and opens the second big prize opening 92 for about 30 seconds in one unit game. The short-term special game control means 127 executes a unit game with an upper limit of 15 times as a specific special game, and opens the first big prize winning opening 91 in each unit game for about 0.2 seconds. However, entering a specific area is a continuation condition for the specific special game.
  The small hit game control means 121 executes the small hit game as a short-term open game when the winning / notting lottery results in the transition to the small hit game and the small hit operation condition is satisfied. The small hit game control means 121 executes a unit game only once as a small hit game, and opens the first big winning opening 91 for about 0.2 seconds in the unit game. The short-term special game control means 127 and the small hit game control means 121 are comprehensively positioned as the short-term open game control means 126. The short-term opening game control means 126 executes the short-term opening game when the short-term operation condition is satisfied.
  The specific game execution means 122 executes control for shifting the game state from the normal state to the specific game state, and control for returning the specific game state to the normal state. The specific game in the present embodiment has a probability change in which the winning probability of the winning / failing lottery is switched from a normal probability state to a high probability state, and a short time in which the symbol variation time is switched from a normal time to a short time.
  The specific game executing means 122 shifts the gaming state after the special game to the probability changing state when the winning / failing lottery value is a value to be shifted to the probability changing state. The probability variation state is continued until the next jackpot is generated in principle, and during that time, the probability of the hit determination by the success / failure lottery means 112 is maintained at a high value. In the present embodiment, the appearance is not clearly indicated as to whether or not the gaming state is in a certain change state. In other words, it does not display whether or not the game state is changing probability, and even when a big hit occurs, it does not indicate whether the hit is a hit with probability change, so-called "latent probability change" state is maintained Is done. In addition, the specific game executing means 122 shifts the game state to the time-shortened state after the special game regardless of the winning lottery value. The short time is continued until the number of changes of the special symbol after the special game reaches a predetermined number, for example, 100 times. However, the time reduction during the probability change is continued until the next jackpot occurs in the same manner as the probability change.
  In addition, after the special game is over, the time shifts to a shorter time as a rule regardless of whether or not the state has changed to the probability change state. Do not move to. Further, even after the end of the small hit game, the transition to time reduction or probability change is not performed, and the game state before the start of the small hit game is maintained. Therefore, if the time is short or probable since the start of the small hit game, the time short or probable state is maintained even if the end condition is not satisfied even after the small hit game ends.
  The ball entry control means 150 includes an opening / closing pattern determination means 123 and an opening / closing control means 124, and controls the ease of entering a game ball into the big winning opening and the starting opening. The ball entry control means 150 controls driving of an opening / closing mechanism for the first grand prize winning port 91 and the second big prize winning port 92 and an expansion mechanism for the start opening 62. In the present embodiment, the opening / closing mechanism of the first grand prize winning port 91 functions as an “adjusting means” operable to change the passage tolerance of the specific area of the game ball. The opening / closing pattern determining means 123 includes a first pattern determining means 151 and a second pattern determining means 152, and includes a plurality of types of opening / closing patterns in which the opening / closing modes of the first big winning opening 91 and the second big winning opening 92 are respectively defined. An open / close pattern corresponding to the result of the lottery determination is selected. The first pattern determining means 151 selects the opening / closing pattern of the first big winning opening 91 when the lottery result is a specific jackpot or a small jackpot. The second pattern determining means 152 selects the opening / closing pattern of the second big winning opening 92 when the lottery result is a normal big hit. Details of the opening / closing pattern of each special winning opening will be described later.
  The opening / closing control means 124 includes first opening / closing control means 153, second opening / closing control means 154, and accessory opening / closing control means 155. The first opening / closing control means 153 sends an opening instruction to the big prize opening solenoid 80 during the special special game or the small hit game, and the first big winning opening 91 of the first big winning opening 91 is selected according to the opening / closing pattern selected by the first pattern determining means 151. Controls opening and closing. The second opening / closing control means 154 sends an opening instruction to the big prize opening solenoid 81 during the normal special game, and controls the opening / closing of the second big winning opening 92 according to the opening / closing pattern selected by the second pattern determination means 152. When the normal symbol is stopped at a specific symbol, the accessory opening / closing control means 155 sends an opening instruction to the ordinary electric accessory solenoid 76 and operates the expansion mechanism of the start port 62 to expand it. The accessory opening / closing control means 155 also performs an open extension that causes the expansion mechanism of the start port 62 to expand for a longer time than the normal state in the probability change state and the short time state after the normal special game. The release extension is not performed in the later certain change state. In the normal special game, as a merit of normal change and short time, the opening time of the start port 62 is lengthened so that the player can continue the game without reducing the possession. On the other hand, after the special special game, it is to avoid the player from easily recognizing that the player was the special special game, that is, that the player has shifted to the probability change with the opening extension. In other words, by preventing the recognition of the small hit game or the special special game by the operation of the ordinary electric accessory, it guarantees the gameability that makes it difficult to distinguish which game. .
  The pattern storage means 130 holds a plurality of effect patterns in which effect image contents to be displayed on the effect display device 60 in the variation of the decorative design 190 and the display process thereof are determined. The effect pattern is displayed separately from a plurality of variation effect patterns in which the variation process from the variation start to the stop in the variation display of the decoration symbol 190 and the effect process are defined, and the variation display of the decoration symbol, and the degree of expectation to the jackpot And a plurality of notice effect patterns suggesting the height of the notice. The pattern storage unit 130 also holds a plurality of effect patterns in which effect image contents to be displayed on the effect display device 60 and display processes thereof are determined in each of the special special game, the special special game, and the small hit game.
  The effect determining unit 132 includes a normal effect determining unit 133 and a special effect determining unit 135. The normal effect determining means 133 determines the variable effect pattern according to the result of the lottery by the success / failure lottery means 112 during the normal game, the special symbol stop symbol, and the special symbol variable pattern. The normal effect determining unit 133 holds a pattern table to be referred to in order to determine the variable effect pattern. The normal effect determination unit 133 sends information indicating the effect pattern including the determined variation effect pattern and the notice effect pattern to the effect operation control unit 134. The special effect determining means 135 determines the effect pattern according to which game is transferred when the game is transferred to one of the normal special game, the specific special game, and the small hit game. The special effect determining means 135 holds a pattern table to be referred to in order to determine the effect pattern. The special effect determination unit 135 sends information indicating the determined effect pattern to the effect operation control unit 134.
  The variation production pattern includes a pattern for displaying a normal out-of-order symbol combination, a pattern for displaying an out-of-order symbol combination after reaching a big win if one more symbols are aligned, and a reach state. A pattern for displaying a jackpot symbol combination is included. In particular, the pattern that passes through the reach state includes patterns having various fluctuation times. Each variation effect pattern has a variation time for each pattern as an end condition of the symbol variation, and the symbol variation is stopped when the variation time elapses. The effect determining unit 132 selects a variation effect pattern of the effect image having the same variation time according to the variation pattern of the special symbol.
  The symbol form determining means 131 determines the combination and arrangement of the stop symbols of the decorative symbols in accordance with the result of the lottery by the pass / fail lottery means 112, the special symbol stop symbol, the special symbol variation pattern, and the decorative symbol variation effect pattern. To do. The symbol form determining unit 131 transmits information indicating the determined combination of stop symbols to the effect operation control unit 134. The symbol form determining means 131 holds a symbol range table to be referred to in order to determine the stop symbol of the decorative symbol.
  The stop symbol of the decorative symbol is formed as a combination of three symbols. For example, when the determination result by the success / failure lottery means 112 indicates the transition to the normal special game, three symbols such as “777” and “111” are arranged. Selected combinations are selected. In this case, it is preferable that the same numbers as the special symbols are selected as the numbers arranged as the decorative symbols. For example, when the special symbol is “3”, the decorative symbol is “333”. In the case where the determination result by the success / failure lottery means 112 indicates that the game does not shift to the special game, a combination that does not have three symbols such as “312” and “946” is selected. However, if the determination result is that the game does not shift to the special game, and the variation pattern of the special symbol indicating the detachment with reach or the variation effect pattern of the decorative symbol is selected, “191” or “727” is selected. "A combination that does not have only one symbol, such as" Further, when the determination result by the winning / failing lottery means 112 indicates a shift to a specific special game, or a shift to a small hit game, an odd number or an even number in which three symbols are consecutive, such as “135” and “246” Is selected. In this embodiment, different symbols are set as a special symbol indicating the transition to the specific special game and a special symbol indicating the shift to the small hit game, but the decorative symbols are set without distinction. Therefore, the player cannot distinguish whether it shows a transition to a specific special game or a small hit game simply by looking at the stop symbol of the decorative symbol.
  The notice effect pattern is an effect pattern for temporarily displaying an image, animation, video, or the like of a specific character or motif, or an effect pattern for outputting a specific sound. The effect by the notice effect pattern is executed in parallel with the symbol variation, and suggests in advance that the symbol variation is highly expected to stop in the big hit mode. For example, there are a normal notice effect in which only one character image is displayed on the screen, and a group notice effect in which a large number of characters are displayed so as to pass from one end to the other end of the screen. Further, the display process of the notice effect is divided into a plurality of stages, and the number of stages to be displayed is variable, and a step-up notice effect that is set such that the higher the number of stages is, the higher the expectation for the big hit is included.
  The notice effect pattern includes a pattern in which the effect is executed at a timing after the display form of the decorative symbol 190 reaches the reach state and the final stop state of the symbol is notified, and no decorative symbol 190 is stopped. There is a pattern in which the performance is executed at the timing and the reach is reached at the same time.
  The effect determining means 132 determines whether or not to display the notice effect on the effect display device 60 according to the result of the lottery determination, and determines the notice effect pattern to be displayed. The effect determining means 132 holds a notice determination table that should be referred to in order to determine whether or not to display the notice effect, and a notice type table that should be referred to when selecting the type of the notice effect pattern. The notice decision table is set so that different columns are referred to depending on the result of the lottery decision. Correspondence between whether to display the result and the notice effect is determined. Thereby, the high expectation degree to the jackpot can be suggested by displaying the notice effect itself.
  The effect operation control means 134 includes a display control means 137 and a sound control means 138. The display control means 137 includes a normal effect display control means 142 for controlling the effect display during the normal game, and a special effect display control means 144 for controlling the effect display during the special game and the small hit game. The normal effect display control means 142 variably displays effect images including decorative symbols on the effect display device 60 according to the selected variation effect pattern data as a result of the success / failure lottery by the success / failure lottery means 112. When the effect determining unit 132 determines that the notice effect is to be displayed, the normal effect display control unit 142 causes the effect display device 60 to display the notice effect according to the selected notice effect pattern. The special effect display control means 144 displays an effect image on the effect display device 60 according to the effect pattern data set for the normal special game, the specific special game, and the small hit game. The display control means 137 further controls effect processing such as turning on and off the game effect lamp 90. The sound control means 138 controls effect processing such as sound output from the speaker 18.
  In accordance with an instruction received from the effect operation control means 134, the accessory control means 136 operates the movable accessory 140 in an effect manner in accordance with the effect contents in the effect display device 60 and the blinking process of the game effect lamp 90.
  4-6 is explanatory drawing showing the structure and function of a special winning opening. In each figure, the first grand prize winning port 91 extracted from the game board 50 is shown for convenience. 4A and 4B show the appearance of the first grand prize winning port 91, where FIG. 4A is a front view thereof, FIG. 4B is a perspective view when closed, and FIG. 4C is a perspective view when opened. 5 shows a state in which the cover member of the first grand prize winning opening 91 is removed, (a) is a perspective view seen from the upper right, (b) is a perspective view seen from the upper left, and (c) is a plan view. Respectively. Further, FIG. 6 shows a cross section of each part shown in FIG. 5 (c), (a) is a cross sectional view taken along arrow AA, (b) is a cross sectional view taken along arrow BB, and (c) is CC cross section. Each cross-sectional view is shown.
  As shown in FIG. 4, the first big prize opening 91 has an opening 202 on the front side of the rectangular case 200, and an opening / closing lid 204 is provided to seal the opening 202. The opening / closing lid 204 has a rotation shaft at the lower end thereof, and opens or closes the opening 202 by rotating in the front-rear direction. The case 200 accommodates an actuator for opening and closing the opening / closing lid 204 and a sensor for detecting a ball entry, in order to supply a drive current to the actuator and take out an output signal of the sensor. The harness 206 is pulled out to the outside. The harness 206 is connected to the main board 102.
  As shown in FIG. 5, in the first half of the base member 210 constituting the case 200, a winning area where a game ball is allowed to enter when the opening / closing lid 204 is opened is formed. An inclined sphere passage 212 is provided so as to extend in the direction. An opening / closing mechanism 214 for opening / closing the opening / closing lid 204 is provided on the left side of the inclined sphere passage 212, and a solenoid 216, which is an actuator for driving the opening / closing mechanism 214, is provided on the left side. The solenoid 216 functions as a special prize opening solenoid 80. A first entrance 218 and a second entrance 220 are juxtaposed on the right and left sides of the right side of the inclined sphere passage 212. The first entrance 218 constitutes an entrance to the non-specific area 95, and the second entrance 220 constitutes an entrance to the specific area 94.
  A first entrance sensor 222 for detecting the entrance is provided at the position of the first entrance 218, and a second entrance sensor 224 is provided at the position of the second entrance 220. That is, the first pitch sensor 222 constitutes the non-specific area passage detection device 78 and detects that a game ball that has won the first big prize winning opening 91 passes through the non-specific area 95. The second pitch sensor 224 constitutes the specific area passage detection device 77 and detects that the game ball that has won the first big prize opening 91 passes through the specific area 94. A printed wiring board 226 is provided at the back end of the base member 210, and is drawn out from each of the lead wire drawn from the power supply terminal of the solenoid 216, the first incoming sensor 222, and the second incoming sensor 224. Each lead wire and harness 206 are connected by wiring.
  As shown in FIG. 5C, the opening / closing lid 204 has a rotating shaft 240 that protrudes left and right at the lower end portion thereof. The rotation shaft 240 is fitted to a concave bearing portion 242 provided at the front end portion of the base member 210 and is rotatably supported. The opening / closing mechanism 214 includes an operating rod 244 connected to the movable iron core of the solenoid 216 and a spring 246 that biases the operating rod 244 forward. The operating rod 244 has a tip connected to the left peripheral edge of the opening / closing lid 204 via a link mechanism. The link mechanism is configured to reverse the direction of the solenoid force transmitted via the operating rod 244 and apply it to the opening / closing lid 204. In such a configuration, when the solenoid 216 is not energized, the operating rod 244 is pushed forward by the urging force of the spring 246, so that the open / close lid 204 is pulled back to the back. As a result, the first grand prize winning opening 91 is kept closed. When the solenoid 216 is energized, the operating rod 244 is pulled back against the urging force of the spring 246 by the operation of the movable iron core. As a result, the opening / closing lid 204 is pushed out and rotated to the near side to open the first big winning opening 91. By controlling the energization timing to the solenoid 216, the opening / closing timing of the first grand prize winning port 91 can be controlled.
  The first entrance sensor 222 has an annular passage gate 250 that allows the game ball to pass through the lower half of the rectangular plate-shaped main body, and senses the passage of the game ball along the inner peripheral surface of the passage gate 250. A sensing unit (sensor element) is provided. The passing gate 250 is disposed at the position of the first entrance 218. On the back surface of the upper half of the main body of the first incoming sensor 222, wiring connected to the sensing unit is mounted, and lead wires connected to the harness 206 are wired. Similarly, the second entrance sensor 224 has an annular passage gate 252 that allows the game ball to pass through the lower half of the rectangular plate-shaped main body, and allows the game ball to pass along the inner peripheral surface of the passage gate 252. A sensing unit (sensor element) for sensing is disposed. The passage gate 252 is disposed at the position of the second entrance 220. On the back surface of the upper half of the main body of the second incoming sensor 224, wiring connected to the sensing unit is mounted, and lead wires connected to the harness 206 are connected by wiring.
  The first entrance sensor 222 and the second entrance sensor 224 are arranged adjacent to each other on the left and right sides, and toward the front so that the passing gates 250 and 252 are visible from the front side when the first big winning opening 91 is opened. It is arranged to tilt downward. In this way, the installation height is suppressed by arranging the plate-shaped both ball entering sensors in an inclined manner, and the first grand prize winning port 91 is made compact. In addition, the first entrance sensor 222 and the second entrance sensor 224 are arranged at the positions of the first entrance 218 and the second entrance 220, respectively. Whether or not a game ball has been entered, that is, whether or not a game ball has entered the first grand prize winning port 91 and has passed through the specific area 94 can be detected at the timing of entering the ball.
  As shown in FIG. 6A, the inclined sphere passage 212 is formed so as to incline downward from the left side to the right side. For this reason, the game ball that has entered the first grand prize winning port 91 flows down toward the right side of the inclined ball passage 212. That is, the left side of the inclined ball passage 212 is the upstream side and the right side is the downstream side with respect to the flow of the game balls. An inner wall 228 for preventing the game ball from dropping off is provided in the upstream half of the inclined ball passage 212. The downstream half of the inclined sphere passage 212 is open toward the rear entrance, and a first part 230 and a second part 232 are sequentially provided from the upstream side through a step.
  In addition, while the inclined sphere passage 212 has a shape inclined downward from the left side to the right side in this way, the opening / closing lid 204 extends substantially horizontally from side to side, so the first grand prize winning opening 91 is opened. In this case, as shown in FIGS. 5A and 5B, a slight step is formed between the upstream half of the inclined ball passage 212 and the receiving surface of the opening / closing lid 204 (the surface receiving the game ball). Is done. The inclined ball passage 212 allows a game ball picked up by the opening / closing lid 204 when the first grand prize winning opening 91 is in an open state to ride over the step and also upstream of the first portion 230. That is, the inclination angle in the left-right direction is set. In other words, the inclined sphere passage 212 is formed so as to have a level difference that allows the game ball to ride on, and is configured not to occupy the space above and below it. This also contributes to the compactness of the first grand prize winning opening 91.
  The second portion 232 is located at the most downstream portion of the inclined sphere passage 212, and an inner wall 236 with which the game ball that has flowed down is provided at the downstream end thereof, that is, the most downstream end portion of the inclined sphere passage 212. It has been. The first part 230 is inclined downward toward the second part 232, the first entrance 218 is located in the back of the first part 230, and the second entrance 220 is located in the back of the second part 232. doing. A partition wall 234 is provided at the boundary between the first part 230 and the second part 232 to form a step where a game ball flowing down from the first part side 230 falls.
  In addition, as shown in FIG. 6B, the first portion 230 of the inclined ball passage 212 and the upstream portion thereof are inclined downward, and the game ball that has reached the first portion 230 enters the first entrance. It is configured not to be guided to the ball opening 218. On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 6C, the second part 232 is inclined downward and the game ball that has reached the second part 232 is easily guided to the second entrance 220. Has been.
  When the inclined ball passage 212 has the above-described shape, the game balls that have entered the winning area of the first big winning opening 91 flow down along the inclined ball passage 212. Since the first part 230 is inclined downward, the game ball that has flowed down to the first part 230 is difficult to enter the first entrance 218 and flows down so as to pass through the first part 230 as it is. To do. On the other hand, the game ball that has flowed down to the second portion 232 in this way is hit by the inner wall 236 at the most downstream end, and the flow-down velocity is killed. Since the second part 232 is inclined downward, the game ball is guided to the second entrance 220 as it is. In the present embodiment, the upstream side including the first portion 230 of the inclined sphere passage 212 is configured to be inclined downward, but in the modified example, only the first portion 230 is inclined downward to the front side. It is good also as a structure which is not inclined in the near side or the back in the more upstream position.
  Depending on the state of entry to the first grand prize opening 91, it is assumed that the game ball collides with another game ball that has flowed down first or the inner wall 236 at the most downstream end, and is bounced back. By providing the step according to the above, it is restricted that the game ball flows backward (ascends) in the inclined ball passage 212. In other words, the game ball that has once passed through the first portion 230 is prevented from flowing back and entering the first entrance 218, and the game ball flowing down the inclined ball passage 212 is almost certainly second entrance 220. Can be led to. However, since the width of the passage from the second part 232 to the second entrance 220 is restricted by forming a step at the boundary between the first part 230 and the second part 232, the first big prize opening It cannot be denied that a plurality of game balls cause clogging at the most downstream end of the second portion 232 depending on the state of entering the ball 91. However, in the present embodiment, the first part 230 and the second part 232 are arranged adjacent to each other, so that even if a ball clogging occurs, the game ball that is won later collides with the game ball that stops. The game ball is autonomously divided into the first entrance 218 and the second entrance 220 and can enter the ball, and the ball clogging can be eliminated. That is, although it is assumed that such a case of ball clogging is rare, when ball clogging has occurred, by allowing the entry to the first entrance 218 exceptionally, This can be solved. That is, with the arrangement of the first part 230 and the second part 232 and the peripheral structure thereof, the game ball that entered the first grand prize winning port 91 is almost surely guided to the second ball entering port 220 except for exceptions and specified. It is possible to pass through the region 94.
  As described above, a game ball that has entered the first grand prize opening 91 enters the first entrance 218 or the second entrance 220 and passes through the non-specific area 95 or the specific area 94 to play the game. It is discharged to the back of the board 50. However, in actuality, due to the inclined shape of the inclined ball passage 212 described above, the game balls that have entered the first grand prize winning opening 91 enter almost the second entrance 220, with the exception of the specific area 94. To pass. The passage of the specific area 94 can be determined by outputting a signal indicating the passage of the game ball from the second incoming sensor 224. Note that a game ball entering the first grand prize opening 91 itself is determined by outputting a signal indicating the passage of the game ball from either the first ball sensor 222 or the second ball sensor 224. can do.
Next, the contents of the characteristic production progress control in this embodiment will be described.
FIG. 7 is a time chart illustrating the correspondence between the opening / closing timing of the special prize opening and the display period of each effect displayed on the effect display device. The figure (a) shows the case of a small jackpot, and the figure (b) shows the case of a specific jackpot. FIG. 6C shows a case of a normal jackpot. FIG. 4D shows the entry determination timing of the game ball at the big winning opening.
  In the present embodiment, as described above, one of the goals is to realize the gameability of encouraging the player's expectation by making it difficult to distinguish between the small hit game and the specific special game. For this reason, the special special game and the small hit game are devised so that the opening / closing mode of the big prize opening looks the same in appearance.
  That is, as shown in FIG. 5A, when the winning / losing lottery result is a small hit, after a symbol variation (not shown) indicating the result is displayed, the small hit game is started and the short-term of the big prize opening Opening takes place. In the example shown in the figure, a demonstration effect (referred to as “start demonstration effect”) indicating the start of execution of the small hit game is started at time t1. And from the time t2, the 1st big winning opening 91 is opened once. The opening time is approximately 0.2 seconds, and a demonstration effect (referred to as “end demo effect”) indicating the end of execution of the small hit game is started at time t3 after an interval period of approximately 2 seconds. A predetermined winning effect is displayed between time t2 and time t3. The contents and combinations of the start demonstration effect, the winning effect, and the end demonstration effect are determined by the special effect determining means 135. In this embodiment, an effect pattern in which the start demonstration effect and the winning effect are integrated is provided, and a still image is displayed as an effect of introducing mode switching such as “chance mode!” That suggests switching of the effect mode. The small hit is only performed a predetermined number of times (in the illustrated example, once) regardless of whether or not it passes through the specific area, so if there is a ball entering the first big winning opening 91 Even so, the still image is continuously displayed. That is, even if there is an unintended passage through the specific area 94, the small hit effect does not extend (the execution time of the small hit game does not increase), and there is no need to switch the effect pattern. In the end demonstration effect, the introduction effect to the chance mode is displayed as a moving image. When this end demonstration effect ends, the next symbol variation starts. In addition, in the modified example, a predetermined moving image is enlarged such that a specific movie is repeatedly flowed instead of using the introduction effect in which the start demonstration effect and the winning effect are integrated as described above as a still image display from the beginning. It may be displayed in a running state regardless of the operation of the winning opening. Alternatively, after a moving image is displayed for a predetermined time, it may be switched to a still image. For example, the moving image display may be ended by the timing at which the end demonstration effect is started earliest, and then switched to a still image.
  On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 5B, when the winning / losing lottery result is a specific big win, after a symbol variation (not shown) indicating the result is displayed, a specific special game is started and a short-term winning prize opening is displayed. Opening is started. In the illustrated example, the start demonstration effect indicating the start of execution of the specific special game is started at time t1. And the opening of the 1st big winning opening 91 is started from time t2. When this specific special game is continued, the opening time of the first big winning opening 91 in each unit game is set to about 0.2 seconds, and the next unit game is started after an interval period of about 2 seconds. . In the example shown in the figure, the continuation condition is not satisfied because there is no entry into the specific area in the first unit game, and the end demonstration effect is started at time t3. When the unit game is executed after the first time, as long as the continuation condition is satisfied, the first grand prize winning opening 91 repeats the same operation as the first operation, and in an opening / closing manner as indicated by a dotted line in the figure. Be controlled. In the present embodiment, the same content as that of the small hit game is selected as the content of the start demonstration effect, the winning effect and the end demonstration effect in the specific special game, and the combination thereof. For this reason, when the specific special game ends in the first round as shown in the drawing, it is impossible to distinguish the game from the small hit game in the appearance of the first big winning opening 91 and the production contents. As already described, the opening period of 0.2 seconds is set as a period in which it is almost impossible to enter the first big winning opening 91 by design. For this reason, when it shifts to a specific special game, it comes to be almost ended in the first round.
  On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 7C, when the winning / losing lottery result is a normal big hit, after a symbol variation (not shown) indicating the result is displayed, the normal special game is started and the long term of the big prize opening is displayed. Opening is started. In the illustrated example, the start demonstration effect indicating the start of execution of the normal special game is started at time t1. And the opening of the 2nd big winning opening 92 and the winning effect are started from time t2. Since this normal special game uses the second grand prize opening 92, it does not require passing through a specific area as a continuation condition, and the unit game is repeatedly executed until the predetermined upper limit number (15 times) is reached. Since the opening time of the second big winning opening 92 is set to be as long as about 30 seconds, the player can expect many prize balls. For this special special game, in order to make the player recognize that such a lot of play is expected, a special prize game different from the special special game and the small hit game is opened and the open period is long. It is set. Also, for the same purpose, in the present embodiment, the contents different from those of the small hit game and the special special game are selected as the contents of the start demonstration effect, the winning effect and the end demo effect and their combinations. It should be noted that the interval period from when the second big prize opening 92 is closed in the previous unit game to when the second big prize opening 92 is opened in the next unit game is set to 2 seconds.
  In addition, there are the following reasons for providing an interval period of 2 seconds between the opening timings of the special winning opening. In other words, there is a time lag between when a winning ball is entered and when it is detected by the winning detection device. For this reason, if the detection signal of the winning detection device is invalidated at the same time as the big winning opening is closed, the game ball entered immediately before the closing of the big winning opening is not detected, which may cause a disadvantage to the player. . Therefore, in order to prevent such a situation, the remaining effective period for detecting the entrance is set after the big winning opening is closed as shown in FIG. An interval period (closing time) is set. In other words, the effective period for detecting the winning at the big winning opening is not only the period until the closing of the big winning opening ends but also the remaining period. In this embodiment, since the remaining effective period is 1.9 seconds, the interval period is set to 2 seconds longer than that. In this embodiment, as shown in FIGS. 5 and 6, the second incoming sensor 224 that detects that the game ball has passed the specific area 94 and the first input that detects that the non-specific area 95 has passed. Since the ball sensor 222 is disposed close to the ball sensor 222, the remaining effective period is secured, so that it is possible to detect whether or not the game ball has passed through the specific area 94 as well as winning the first big winning opening 91. it can.
FIG. 8 is a flowchart showing a basic operation process in the pachinko gaming machine.
First, processing is performed when a game ball has won the start opening 62, the general winning opening 72, the first big winning opening 91, the second big winning opening 92, or the like, or when the gaming ball has passed the operation opening 68 ( S10). Then, if a normal game is being played (Y in S12), a control process for a normal game such as a winning lottery is executed (S14). If not being a normal game (N in S12), a special game control process (S16). Or, a small hit game control process is executed (S17), and award ball payout according to various winnings in the processes from S10 to S17 is processed (S18).
  Note that the winning process of the first grand prize port 91 and the second big prize port 92 in S10 is executed in consideration of the validity period shown in FIG. In other words, in each unit game, the detection signal input from each winning detection device is processed as valid until the valid period (for example, 1.9 seconds) elapses after each large winning opening is closed. Specifically, when the specific special game is started, the winning detection and the specific area passing detection at the first big winning opening 91 are set as effective. Then, the presence / absence of the winning information and the passing information of the specific area is determined until the effective period elapses after the first grand prize winning opening 91 is closed, and the game based on the determination result is started after the effective period elapses. Even if a detection signal is output from each detection device after the valid period has elapsed, it is not counted, and no payout of a prize ball or storage of passage information of a specific area is performed.
  Similarly, when the small hit game is started, winning detection at the first big winning opening 91 is set as effective. Then, the presence / absence of winning information is determined until the effective period elapses after the first grand prize opening 91 is closed, and a game based on the determination result is started after the effective period elapses. Even if a detection signal is output from the detection device after the expiration of the valid period, it is not counted and no prize ball is paid out. As described above, in both the small hit game and the specific special game, it is determined whether or not to enter the first grand prize winning port 91, but the determination of passage through the specific area may be performed only in the specific special game. Therefore, in the present embodiment, it is determined whether the special big hit or the small hit is based on the stop symbol of the special symbol 192, and the passage determination of the specific area is validated only when the special big hit is achieved.
  When the normal special game is started, winning detection at the second big winning opening 92 is set as valid. Then, the presence / absence of winning information is determined until the effective period elapses after the second grand prize opening 92 is closed, and after the effective period elapses, a game based on the determination result is started. Even if a detection signal is output from the detection device after the expiration of the valid period, it is not counted and no prize ball is paid out.
  FIG. 9 is a flowchart showing in detail the normal game control process of S14 in FIG. In the normal game control process, if the winning / losing lottery value is on hold (Y in S30) and the symbol variation is not being displayed (N in S32), the winning / losing lottery means 112 executes the determining process. (S34). In accordance with the determination result, the main display control means 118 starts changing display, transmits a change start command to the effect operation control means 134, and the effect operation control means 134 that receives the command displays the effect image according to the change pattern data. Variation display is started (S36). If the winning or failing lottery value is not held in S30 (N in S30), the processing from S32 to S36 is skipped, and if the symbol variation is being displayed in S32 (Y in S32), S34 and S36 Is skipped. Subsequently, if the symbol variation display has already started (Y in S38), the symbol variation display process is executed (S40). If the symbol variation display has not started (N in S38), S40 is skipped. .
FIG. 10 is a flowchart showing in detail the success / failure determination process of S34 in FIG.
First, the success / failure lottery means 112 reads the success / failure lottery value (S42), and determines the success / failure based on the success / failure lottery value (S44). The symbol determining means 114 determines a stop symbol of the special symbol based on the determination result (S46), and selects a variation pattern of the special symbol (S48). At this time, the variation pattern determination means 115 selects the variation pattern of the special symbol with reference to the pattern selection table corresponding to the winning / failing lottery result or the pattern selection table corresponding to the gaming state. The effect determination means 132 determines the stop symbol combination of the decorative symbols based on the determination result and the special symbol (S50), and selects the variation pattern of the decorative symbol according to the variation pattern of the special symbol (S52).
FIG. 11 is a flowchart showing in detail the variation display process of S40 in FIG.
If the symbol variation display has already started, the symbol variation image is displayed (S60). When the predetermined variation time has elapsed and the symbol display stop timing has been reached (Y in S62), the symbol being displayed is displayed. The fluctuation is stopped (S64).
  If the winning / losing lottery result corresponding to the stopped symbol variation is a normal jackpot (Y in S66), a special game end condition for ending the normal special game is set (S68). In this embodiment, the special game end condition is set such that the number of continuations of the unit game reaches the maximum number of continuations of 15 times. And it transfers to a normal special game (S70). Normally, it is not a big jackpot (N in S66), but if it is a special big jackpot (Y in S72), a special game end condition for ending the specific special game is set (S74). In the present embodiment, one of the fact that the number of continuations of the unit game reaches the upper limit number of continuations of 15 and that the game ball has not entered (passed) into the specific area 94 in the unit game is established. Is set as a special game end condition. Then, the process proceeds to the specific special game (S76). On the other hand, if it is not a specific big hit (N in S72) but a small hit (Y in S78), the game shifts to a small hit game (S80). If it is not a small hit (N in S78), the process in S80 is skipped. If the symbol display stop timing has not been reached (N in S62), the processes in S64 and subsequent steps are skipped, and the flow of this figure is terminated.
  FIG. 12 is a flowchart showing the passing information storage process executed in parallel with the winning process of S10 in FIG. This passing information storage process is executed only at the time of the special special game, and is repeatedly executed at a predetermined period in parallel with the special special game, and the game ball passes through the specific area 94 as a continuation condition of the special special game. In this case, the passage information is stored.
  When the specific area passing information is input (Y in S82), the special game control means 120 turns on a passing flag set in a predetermined area on the RAM to indicate that fact (S84). When the specific area passing information is not input (N in S82), the process of S84 is skipped. In the present embodiment, the passing information storing process is started together with the specific special game and is set to be executed only during the specific special game. However, the process of accepting the specific area passing information also in the special game that is not in the specific special game. May be executed in parallel. For example, in parallel with the basic process shown in FIG. 8, the specific area passing information is always received, and the input timing is during the specific special game (that is, the opening operation period of the big prize opening is combined with the remaining effective period after the closing) The passage flag may be set according to the determination result of whether or not the current period. That is, the passing flag may be turned on if the special special game is being performed, and the passing flag may not be set by invalidating the specific area passing information if the special special game is not being performed. In addition, regardless of whether or not the game is a special game, it may be possible to detect the ball entering the big prize opening or the passage of the game ball to a specific area. In that case, the state when the game ball enters / passes (such as whether the special prize or small win game is in the process of opening the big prize opening, or the remaining effective period after the big prize opening is closed) Depending on the game, it may be determined whether the entry / passing is valid or invalid.
  FIG. 13 is a flowchart showing in detail the special game control process of S16 in FIG. If the result of the lottery is a big hit (Y in S90), a special game (normal special game or specific special game) has already started (Y in S92), and the first big winning opening 91 or the second big If the winning opening 92 (also simply referred to as “big winning opening”) has not been opened (N in S98), the opening process of the big winning opening is executed (S100), and if it has been opened (Y in S98), the large A winning opening closing process is executed (S102). As a result, if the special winning opening is closed (Y in S104), the process proceeds to S106. If it is not in the closed state (N in S104), the process after S106 is skipped, and this process is temporarily ended. On the other hand, if the special game has not started in S92 (N in S92), the special game is started (S94), the display of the start demonstration effect is started (S96), and this process is temporarily ended.
  In S106, it is determined whether or not a special effect which is an effect during a special game is being performed. If the special effect is not in progress (N in S106), an end determination process for determining whether or not the special game end condition is satisfied is executed (S108). Here, if an end flag, which will be described later, is on, the special game end condition is satisfied. If the special game end condition is satisfied (Y in S110), the end flag is turned off (S112), and the display of the end demonstration effect is started (S114). If the special game end condition is not satisfied (N in S110), this process is temporarily ended. When it is determined in S106 that the special effect is being performed (Y in S106) and the end demonstration effect is ended (Y in S116), the special game is ended (S118), and a specific game state with a short time or a certain change is started ( S120). If the end demonstration effect has not ended (N in S116), the processes in S118 and S120 are skipped. If it is not a big hit (N in S90), the flow after S92 in this figure is skipped.
FIG. 14 is a flowchart showing in detail the release process of S100 in FIG.
When the predetermined opening timing of the first grand prize opening 91 or the second big prize opening 92 based on the set opening / closing pattern is reached (Y in S122), the opening / closing control means 124 sets the operation of the opening / closing pattern ( In step S124, the first big prize opening 91 and the second big prize opening 92 are opened (S126). In other words, the first opening / closing control means 153 opens the first big winning opening 91 when the special special game is in progress, and the second opening / closing control means 154 opens the second big winning opening 92 during the normal special game. Let At the same time, a jackpot effect corresponding to the number of repetitions (number of rounds) of the current unit game or a jackpot effect corresponding to the number of repetitions (number of rounds) being different is set and started. When it is not the opening timing (N of S122), the processes of S124 and S126 are skipped.
FIG. 15 is a flowchart showing in detail the closing process of S102 in FIG.
When the predetermined closing timing of the first grand prize port 91 or the second grand prize port 92 based on the set opening / closing pattern is reached, the opening / closing control means 124 sets the first grand prize port 91 and the second grand prize port 92, respectively. Close. In other words, if the specific special game is being played, if the end condition based on the number of balls entered is satisfied (Y in S130), or if the end condition based on the opening time is satisfied (Y in S132), the first big winning opening 91 is closed. (S134). The end condition based on the number of balls entered in the specific special game is 10 or more balls entering the first grand prize opening 91, and the end condition based on the opening time is 0.2 from the start of opening the first big prize opening 91. The passage of seconds. However, since the latter condition of 0.2 second opening is extremely short, it is practically impossible to enter more than 10 balls during that time. Therefore, the end condition based on the number of entered balls is not actually established during the specific special game, and only the end condition based on the opening time is determined. At this time, if the maximum number of continuations has been reached (Y in S136), the end flag is turned on (S138). If the maximum number of continuations has not been reached (N in S136), the process in S138 is skipped. In this embodiment, the upper limit number of continuations is 15 times.
  On the other hand, if the special condition is being played, if the end condition based on the number of balls is satisfied (Y in S130) or if the end condition based on the opening time is satisfied (Y in S132), the second big prize opening 92 is closed. (S134). The end condition based on the number of balls entered is 10 or more balls entering the second big prize opening 92, and the end condition based on the opening time is 30 seconds from the start of opening the second big prize opening 92. . At this time, if the maximum number of continuations has been reached (Y in S136), the end flag is turned on (S138). If the maximum number of continuations has not been reached (N in S136), the process in S138 is skipped. In this embodiment, the upper limit number of continuations is 15 times. If neither the end condition based on the number of entered balls nor the end condition based on the opening time is satisfied (N in S130, N in S132), the processes after S134 are skipped.
  FIG. 16 is a flowchart showing in detail the end determination process of S108 in FIG. If it is a specific jackpot (Y in S140), the effective period of the remaining sphere (1.9 seconds in the present embodiment: see “the remaining effective period” in FIG. 7D) has passed (Y in S142), If the passing flag (see S84 in FIG. 12) is off at the time (N in S144), the continuation condition for the specific special game is not satisfied, and thus the end flag is turned on to end the specific special game (S146). . As already described, since the game ball may remain in an undetected state immediately after the first grand prize opening 91 is closed, the first big prize opening 91 is closed by the end of the specific special game. Until the validity period elapses, the presence or absence of passage information is determined. On the other hand, if the pass flag is on (Y in S144), the process is temporarily ended after turning off the pass flag without turning on the end flag here (S148). In this case, the specific unit game is not ended and the next unit game is executed. If the valid period has not elapsed (N in S142), the processing from S144 to S148 is skipped. Also, if it is not a specific jackpot but a normal jackpot (N in S140), the processing from S142 to S148 is skipped.
FIG. 17 is a flowchart showing in detail the small hit game control process of S17 in FIG.
If the result of the lottery is a small win (Y in S150), the small hit game has already started (Y in S152), and the first big winning opening 91 has not been opened (N in S158). Then, the opening process of the first big winning opening 91 is executed (S160), and if it is already opened (Y of S158), the closing process of the first big winning opening 91 is executed (S162). As a result, if the first grand prize winning opening 91 is in a closed state (Y in S164), the process proceeds to S166. If it is not in the closed state (N of S164), the process after S166 is skipped and this process is temporarily ended. On the other hand, if the small hit game is not started in S152 (N in S152), the small hit game is started (S154), and the display of the start demonstration effect similar to the specific special game is started (S156). Is temporarily terminated.
  In S166, it is determined whether or not a special effect which is an effect during the small hit game is being performed. If it is not during the special performance (N in S166), it is determined whether or not the small hit game end condition is satisfied. Here, if an end flag, which will be described later, is on, the small hit game end condition is satisfied. If the small hit game end condition is satisfied (Y in S170), the end flag is turned off (S172), and the display of the end demonstration effect is started (S174). If the small hit game ending condition is not satisfied (N in S170), this process is temporarily ended. If it is determined in S166 that the special effect is being performed (Y in S166) and the end demonstration effect is ended (Y in S176), the small hit game is ended (S178). If the end demonstration effect has not ended (N in S176), the process of S178 is skipped. If it is not a small hit (N in S150), the flow after S152 in this figure is skipped.
FIG. 18 is a flowchart showing in detail the release process of S160 in FIG.
When the predetermined opening timing of the first big winning opening 91 based on the set opening / closing pattern is reached (Y of S180), the opening / closing control means 124 sets the operation of the opening / closing pattern (S182), and the first big winning prize is obtained. The opening of the mouth 91 is started (S184). When it is not the opening timing (N of S180), the processing of S182 and S184 is skipped.
FIG. 19 is a flowchart showing in detail the closing process of S162 in FIG.
When the end timing of the opening / closing operation in the opening / closing pattern of the first big winning opening 91 based on the set opening / closing pattern is reached (Y in S190), the end flag is turned on (S192), and the first big winning opening 91 is closed. (S194). In addition, this closing timing is a timing when 0.2 seconds have passed since the opening of the first big winning opening 91. If it is not the closing timing (N of S190), the processes of S192 and S194 are skipped.
  As described above, in the present embodiment, a lottery value (random number) for determining the success / failure, the design, and the production pattern (variation pattern) is acquired in response to the ball entering the starting port. The success / failure lottery means 112 performs a lottery based on the acquired lottery value, and determines whether it is a big win (transition to a normal special game or a specific special game), a small win (transition to a small hit game), or a loss judge. The symbol determining means 114 determines a symbol to be stopped that is displayed to indicate the result according to the lottery result. The variation pattern determining means 115 determines a variation pattern in which the variation process (variation time) of the symbol is determined according to the lottery result. The main display control means 118 variably displays the symbols until the variation time corresponding to the lottery result elapses, and stops the display with the corresponding stop symbols.
  The special game control means 120 determines that the special special game transition condition is satisfied when the result of the winning / losing lottery becomes a specific big win and the symbol indicating the transition to the special special game is stopped and displayed, and executes the special special game. Start. Then, in the specific special game, a specific jackpot process including a continuation determination process in which the passing of the specific area of the game ball is a continuation condition is executed. The special game control means 120 also determines that the normal special game transition condition is satisfied when the result of the winning / losing lottery is a normal jackpot and the symbol indicating the transition to the normal special game is stopped and displayed, and the normal special game Start execution. Then, in the normal special game, a normal jackpot process that does not include the continuation determination process due to the passage of a specific area of the game ball is executed. On the other hand, the small hit game control means 121 determines that the small hit game operating condition is satisfied when the result of the winning / failing lottery becomes a small hit and the symbol indicating the transition to the small hit game is stopped and displayed, and the small hit game is determined. Start running. The small hit game is terminated by the end of the first unit game.
That is, the normal special game, the special special game, and the small hit game are different from each other in the continuation condition, the end condition, the production setting, and the like as follows.
(Continuation conditions)
Normal special game: The passing of a game ball to a specific area is not included in the continuation condition, and the specified round is continued.
Specific special game: The passing condition of a game ball to a specific area is a continuation condition.
Small hit game: Does not continue even if a game ball passes to a specific area.
(Exit conditions)
Normal special game: The maximum number of rounds that can be continued is the end condition.
Specified special games: The maximum number of rounds that can be continued or the passing of game balls to a specific area
The absence condition is the end condition.
Small hit game: The game ends with the first round of digestion.
(Direction setting)
Normal special game: Each time the next round is performed, the production contents corresponding to each round are set.
Special special games: Even if the continuation conditions are met and the next round is continued
Not set. That is, the production content corresponding to each round is not set.
Small hit game: Even if a game ball passes to a specific area, no new content is set.
That is, in the pachinko gaming machine of the present embodiment, a special special game and a special special game are provided as a special game composed of a plurality of unit games, and a small hit game consisting of a single unit game is provided separately. Is provided. Special special games are more advantageous than small win games in that they involve a change in probability, but they are all configured so that the opening time of the big prize opening is about the same and the continuation rate of specific special games is low. Therefore, it is practically difficult to distinguish between the two games. That is, in a special special game, since it is difficult to pass through a specific area, it is highly likely that the game will be ended in one unit game, so it is difficult to distinguish it from a small hit game. It is possible to realize the gameability of encouraging the player's sense of expectation with respect to either one. Furthermore, regardless of whether the game is a special special game or a special special game, the upper limit number of unit games when the special game continues is fixed, so that the difference in the number of unit games is clearly indicated to the player. There is no need to provide notification means such as a so-called round indicator lamp. As a result, it is possible to maintain the game performance that makes it difficult to distinguish between the special special game and the small hit game and enthuses the player's expectation. In addition, even if the number of unit games (number of rounds) is notified by a notification means such as a round indicator light, since the opening of the big prize opening is small and the game is completed in a short period of time, the occurrence of a big win and a small win is recognized. It becomes difficult, and it is difficult to determine whether the game is a specific special game or a small hit game, and it is possible to maintain the game performance of encouraging the player's expectation.
  In the present embodiment, if a game ball enters the winning area of the first big winning opening 91, the game ball flows down along the inclined ball passage 212. Since the first part 230 located in the middle of the inclined ball passage 212 is inclined toward the front side, the game ball flowing down to the first part 230 is not connected to the first entry 230 located in the back of the first part 230. It is difficult to enter the ball opening 218 and flows down so as to pass through the first portion 230 as it is. On the other hand, since the second part 232 that is the downstream part of the first part 230 is inclined downward, the game ball flowing down to the second part 232 is guided to the back of the second part 232. The player enters the second entrance 220. For this reason, even if a movable member or the like for controlling the flow of the game ball is not provided in the winning area of the first big winning opening 91, the gaming ball that has entered the first big winning opening 91 is surely entered into the second winning place. It is possible to guide to the ball port 220 and pass through the specific area. On the other hand, when the game ball passes through the first portion 230 of the inclined ball passage 212 and further falls from the step, the game ball may come into contact with another game ball that has flowed down first, or the lowermost end of the inclined ball passage 212. It is also assumed that it will be bounced back due to the action of hitting the inner wall. However, the provision of the step prevents the game ball from flowing back (up) in the inclined ball passage 212. That is, the game ball that has once passed through the first portion 230 is prevented from flowing back and entering the first entrance 218, and the game ball flowing down the inclined sphere passage 212 is almost certainly surely supplied to the second entrance 220. As a result, it can be led to the specific region 94. Thus, by providing a difference in the passing ratio of the game balls in the specific area 94 and the non-specific area 95, there is a correspondence between the ease of entering the first big prize winning port 91 itself and the passing ratio to the specific area 94. It is possible to have various games using the corresponding relationship. On the other hand, in the present embodiment, the first big prize winning opening 91 is opened in the specific special game, and the ball entering the second ball opening 220 is set as the continuation condition of the specific special game. However, since the opening of the first grand prize opening 91 in the special special game is an extremely short open, basically, the game with the impact that promotes the puncture and immediately ends the special special game and suddenly changes the probability. Can be realized. On the other hand, if there is a ball entering the first grand prize opening 91, it is possible to pass the specific area 94 almost certainly and continue the specific special game, and to secure the player's profit by the ball. .
(Example 2)
The second embodiment is different from the first embodiment in that a plurality of opening / closing patterns of the big winning opening in the small hit game are provided, but other configurations and operations are the same as the first embodiment. For this reason, in the following description, it demonstrates centering on difference with Example 1, and abbreviate | omits description of a common point.
FIG. 20 is a time chart illustrating an open / close pattern of a special winning opening according to the second embodiment. The figure (a) shows the case of a small jackpot, and the figure (b) shows the case of a specific jackpot. FIG. 7B is almost the same as that shown in FIG. FIG. 21 is a diagram showing an opening / closing pattern table used when determining the opening / closing pattern of the big winning opening in the small hit game.
  As shown in FIG. 20A, when the result of the winning / losing lottery is a small winning game and the game is shifted to the small winning game, any one of patterns 1 to 4 is selected as an opening / closing pattern of the first big winning opening 91. Pattern 1 is the same as that shown in FIG. Patterns 2, 3, and 4 are the same as the opening / closing patterns in the case where the unit game of the specific special game shown in FIG. Similar to the first embodiment, the opening time of the first big winning opening 91 in each unit game is set to 0.2 seconds, and the interval period is set to 2 seconds. That is, in this embodiment, although the probability of continuing a unit game in a specific special game is low, it is assumed that the unit game is continued, and the opening / closing pattern of the first big prize opening 91 corresponding to the unit game is also set for the small hit game. It is. However, since it is considered that there is almost no possibility of continuing 5 times or more even if such an assumption is made, a corresponding opening / closing pattern is set only when the unit game is continued 1 to 4 times (setting range). Yes. The selection probability is set to be lower as the number of continuations increases.
  That is, the first pattern determining means 151 refers to the opening / closing pattern table shown in FIG. 21 when the game is shifted to the small hit game. In this open / close pattern table, open / close pattern lottery values of 0 to 255 are assigned to patterns 1 to 4. As shown in the figure, open / close pattern lottery values from 0 to 220 are assigned to pattern 1, and when open / close pattern lottery is performed, pattern 1 is selected with high probability. That is, the open / close pattern similar to that of the first embodiment is selected with high probability. The remaining open / close pattern lottery values are assigned so as to be patterns 2, 3, and 4 in descending order of selection probability. Thereby, the opening / closing mode of the first grand prize winning port 91 corresponding to the case where the specific special game is continued can be realized even in the small hit game. As the possibility that a specific special game will continue to decrease as the number of times it continues increases, the selection probability of the corresponding opening / closing pattern in the small hit game is also low, so the result according to the substance is It will be obtained. In the modification, the symbol determination lottery value used when determining the stop symbol of the special symbol may also be assigned to the open / close patterns 1 to 4. By sharing lottery values, software design can be simplified and data capacity can be reduced.
  According to the present embodiment, although the possibility is low, there is a possibility that the opening / closing mode of the big prize opening when the specific special game is continued is also executed in the small hit game. For this reason, even if the short-term opening of the first big winning opening 91 is repeated a plurality of times, it can be difficult for the player to distinguish between the specific special game and the small hit game. In other words, in the first embodiment, if the first grand prize winning opening 91 is repeatedly opened for a short time, the player can distinguish that it is a specific special game, and the gameability that raises the expectation is guaranteed. become unable. On the other hand, in this embodiment, the player is made aware that the same opening / closing pattern is set even in the small hit game, and thus the short-term opening of the first big winning opening 91 is repeated. However, it will be possible to secure that game.
  In the present embodiment, an example is shown in which the first grand prize opening 91 is opened and closed once in each unit game of the specific special game. However, in the modified example, the opening and closing pattern of the first big prize opening 91 is specified special You may make it provide the opening-and-closing pattern which accompanies multiple opening and closing which changes for every repetition number of unit games in a game. Preferably, a plurality of opening / closing patterns of the first big prize opening 91 in the first unit game of the specific special game are provided, and the opening of the first big prize opening 91 in the subsequent unit game is constituted by one opening operation. May be. For example, a plurality of types of opening / closing patterns that are opened / closed a plurality of times may be provided as the opening / closing mode of the first grand prize opening 91 in the first unit game of the specific special game. In this way, even when transitioning to a specific special game, there are cases where opening and closing is performed a plurality of times even though there is no entry to the specific area 94 when the first grand prize winning opening 91 is opened for the first time. Occur. As a result, it is difficult to determine whether or not the unit game continuation condition is satisfied for each opening and closing, and as a result, it is difficult for the player to determine whether or not it is a specific special game. In other words, regardless of whether or not a game ball has passed to the specific area 94, the first big prize winning opening 91 is opened and closed a plurality of times in the unit game of the small hit game regardless of whether or not it is a specific special game. A similar game state can be formed, and it becomes more difficult to distinguish between the two games. As a result, it is possible to more surely realize the gameability that enthuses the player's expectation of which game is due to the difficulty of distinguishing between the two games. At this time, it is preferable that the opening / closing frequency of the first first prize winning opening 91 is set to be higher in the small hit game than in the specific special game. By doing so, even if the player enters the first grand prize opening 91 during the first unit game in the specific special game, the total number of times of opening and closing the first big prize opening 91 in the specific special game is It becomes less than the maximum number of times of opening and closing of the first big winning opening 91, and it is possible to make it more difficult to distinguish both games.
Example 3
The third embodiment is different from the first embodiment in that there is no small hit game, but other configurations and operations are the same as those in the first embodiment. For this reason, in the following description, it demonstrates centering on difference with Example 1, and abbreviate | omits description of a common point.
  As in the first embodiment, the pachinko gaming machine of the present embodiment is provided with a normal jackpot indicating a shift to a normal special game as a jackpot and a specific jackpot indicating a shift to a specific special game. Each special game includes 15 unit games, but the opening state of the special prize opening and the continuation condition of the special game are different from each other. The success / failure lottery means 112 performs a lottery based on the acquired lottery value, and determines whether it is a normal jackpot, a specific jackpot or a miss. The symbol determining means 114 determines a symbol to be stopped that is displayed to indicate the result according to the lottery result. The variation pattern determining means 115 determines a variation pattern in which the variation process (variation time) of the symbol is determined according to the lottery result. The main display control means 118 variably displays the symbols until the variation time corresponding to the lottery result elapses, and stops the display with the corresponding stop symbols.
  Normally, the special game does not include the passing of the game ball to the specific area as its continuation condition, and continues until the maximum number of rounds that can be continued (15 rounds in this embodiment) is consumed. In a normal special game, a predetermined number or more (10 or more winnings) or a predetermined time (30 seconds) is set as a condition for ending a unit game. On the other hand, the specific special game is terminated when the maximum number of rounds that can be continued is exhausted or the game ball has not passed to the specific area under the condition that the game ball passes to the specific area. In a specific special game, a predetermined number or more (10 or more winnings) or a predetermined time (0.2 seconds) has been set as a condition for ending a unit game. Usually, a relatively large number of balls (prize balls) can be obtained in a special game, but in a special game, there is a high possibility of reaching a puncture in one round, and it is virtually impossible to expect a ball. However, there is always a probable transition after a specific special game. The game control process in the present embodiment is executed in a form in which the small hit game process is excluded from the processes shown in the first embodiment. Specifically, the small hit game control process in FIG. 8 is omitted.
  As described above, in this embodiment, two types of special games are provided: normal special games and specific special games, both of which are set to have the same maximum number of rounds that can be continued (number of unit games). Therefore, there is no need to provide a round indicator light. On the other hand, the specific special game is substantially punctured in one round and immediately shifts to probability change, so that the impact as a so-called sudden probability change can be given to the player.
Example 4
The fourth embodiment is different from the first embodiment in that a plurality of special winning opening opening / closing patterns in a special game are provided, but many other configurations and operations are common to the first embodiment. For this reason, in the following description, it demonstrates centering on difference with Example 1, and abbreviate | omits description of a common point. In the present embodiment, it is assumed that there is one big prize opening, that is, the second big prize opening 92 is omitted in FIG. 1 and the first big prize opening 91 is opened in the normal special game.
  FIG. 22 is a time chart illustrating an opening / closing pattern of a special winning opening according to the fourth embodiment. The figure (a) shows the case of a specific jackpot, and the figure (b) shows the case of a normal jackpot. FIG. 23 is a diagram showing an opening / closing pattern table used when determining the opening / closing pattern of the special winning opening in the special game. The figure (a) shows the opening / closing pattern table used when determining the opening / closing pattern in the specific special game, and the figure (b) shows the opening / closing pattern table used when determining the opening / closing pattern in the normal special game. Yes.
  As shown in FIG. 22A, when the result of the winning / losing lottery is a specific big win and the game is shifted to a specific special game, one of the patterns 1 to 8 is selected as the opening / closing pattern of the first big winning opening 91. Pattern 1 is a pattern in which the first grand prize winning opening 91 is opened once in the first unit game (first round) (see the solid line). Patterns 2, 3, and 4 are patterns in which the first grand prize winning opening 91 is opened 2, 3, and 4 times in the first round, respectively. In any of the patterns 1 to 4, if there is a ball in the first round and the game ball passes through the specific area, the game moves to the second round, and after the second round, the first round is the first round. The big winning opening 91 is opened once (see broken line). In addition, the opening time per time of the 1st big winning opening 91 is set to 0.2 seconds, and the interval period is set to 2 seconds.
  On the other hand, the patterns 5, 6, 7, and 8 are patterns that open the first grand prize winning opening 91 1, 2, 3, and 4 times in the first round (see solid lines). In addition, the opening time per time of the 1st big winning opening 91 is set to 0.2 seconds, and the interval period is set to 2 seconds. In any of the patterns 5 to 8, if there is a ball in the first round and the game ball passes the specific area, the game moves to the second round, and the first round in each round after the second round. The big winning opening 91 is opened once (see broken line). However, when continuing after the 2nd round, the opening time per time of the 1st big winning opening 91 is set to 30 seconds, and the interval period is set to 2 seconds.
  In other words, in this embodiment, it is assumed that the unit game in the specific special game has a low continuation probability but is continued. And even if it continues after the 2nd round, the probability of entering the first grand prize winning hole 91 is still low, and the patterns 1 to 4 that are basically very likely to become punctures are continued after the 2nd round. In this case, patterns 5 to 8 are set in which the probability of entering the first grand prize opening 91 is as high as that of the normal special game. That is, when the game is continued after the second round, the gameability that may develop from a specific special game to a state close to a normal special game is realized as a privilege for the player.
  On the other hand, when the result of the winning / losing lottery is a normal big win and the game is shifted to the normal special game, any one of the patterns 11 to 14 is selected as the opening / closing pattern of the first big winning opening 91. Patterns 11, 12, 13, and 14 are patterns that open the first grand prize winning opening 91 in the first round 2, 3, 4, and 5 times, respectively. In any of the patterns 11 to 14, the total opening time of the first big prize opening 91 in the first round is set to 30 seconds, but the first opening in the pattern 11 and the second opening in the pattern 12 In the pattern 13, the third release in the pattern 13 and the fourth release in the pattern 14 are set to a short release with an opening time of 0.2 seconds and an interval period of 2 seconds, respectively. However, after the short opening, after the interval period of 2 seconds is opened, the opening is performed by subtracting the opening time of the short opening from 30 seconds. Normally, in the special game, the first round is formed including the short opening and the subsequent long opening, so that the opening and closing is executed even if there is no entry to the first big winning opening 91 in the short opening. . For this reason, it is possible to enter the first big prize opening 91 at least during the long opening period after the short opening. In this embodiment, the short release is not set after the second round in the normal special game, and the long release of 30 seconds is set.
  In this way, by setting an opening / closing pattern in which the opening / closing mode of the first grand prize winning opening 91 is similar between the normal special game and the specific special game, it is possible to distinguish which special game is being executed in the first round. This makes it possible to achieve a game that makes it difficult and enthusiasm for the player. However, in the specific special game, the probability that the continuation condition is satisfied by entering the specific area is low, and the selection probability of the pattern 1 is set high in order to increase the impact due to the short opening. And in accordance with it, in normal special game, the selection probability of the pattern 11 similar to the pattern 1 is set high.
  In other words, the opening / closing pattern determining means 123 refers to the opening / closing pattern table shown in FIG. 23A when shifting to the specific special game. In this open / close pattern table, open / close pattern lottery values of 0-255 are assigned to patterns 1-8. As shown in the figure, open / close pattern lottery values from 0 to 220 are assigned to pattern 1, and when open / close pattern lottery is performed, pattern 1 is selected with high probability. The remaining open / close pattern lottery values are assigned with almost equal selection probabilities. On the other hand, the opening / closing pattern determination means 123 refers to the opening / closing pattern table shown in FIG. 23B when the normal special game is entered. In this open / close pattern table, open / close pattern lottery values of 0 to 255 are assigned to the patterns 11 to 14. As shown in the figure, open / close pattern lottery values from 0 to 220 are assigned to pattern 11, and when open / close pattern lottery is performed, pattern 11 is selected with high probability. The remaining open / close pattern lottery values are assigned with almost equal selection probabilities. In the modification, the open / close pattern table may be configured such that the selection probability decreases as the number of short opens increases. In the modification, the symbol determination lottery value used when determining the stop symbol of the special symbol may also be assigned to the open / close patterns 1 to 14. By sharing lottery values, software design can be simplified and data capacity can be reduced.
  In addition, you may make it combine the method of setting the similar opening-and-closing pattern between a normal special game and a specific special game like Example 1 and Example 3. FIG. Specifically, in addition to the opening / closing pattern table of FIG. 23, by setting the opening / closing pattern table for the small hit game shown in FIG. 20 (a), any of the special special game, the specific special game, and the small hit game It becomes difficult to distinguish whether there is a game, and it is possible to create a game that rejoices the player's expectation as to which it is.
  In the above, this invention was demonstrated based on the Example. This embodiment is merely an example, and it will be understood by those skilled in the art that various modifications can be made to the combination of each component and each processing process, and such modifications are within the scope of the present invention. is there.
(Modification 1)
In the first embodiment, an effect pattern by a still image in which a start demonstration effect and a winning effect are integrated in a specific special game is provided, and a new effect pattern is not set until the end demonstration effect is started. As a result, even if the game ball passes through the specific area 94 and the specific special game is continued, no new effect is performed (that is, there is no change in the effect display such as the effect switching). Can be ensured.
  In the modification, an effect pattern having an effect display time corresponding to the upper limit number of times of the specific special game may be set as an effect pattern common to the specific special game and the small hit game. The effect pattern may include a moving image. That is, an effect pattern with the longest display time may be set as a common effect pattern, and the effect display may be turned off when each game ends. Even if it does in this way, even if it passes the specific area 94 which is not intended, there is no need to switch an effect pattern and the consistency of an effect can be ensured. As described above, when the end condition based on the number of balls entered (10 or more winnings) and the end condition based on the opening time (0.2 seconds) are set as the end conditions for the unit game in the specific special game, it is effectively entered. Since the end condition based on the number of balls is not satisfied, the process ends with the opening time. For this reason, there is no possibility that the time of the special game itself will be shifted depending on the progress of the specific special game. For this reason, even if the video of the moving image is continuously displayed in this way, the consistency in performance can be maintained. In addition, it is not necessary to make a lot of judgments for effect switching, and it is only necessary to set an effect at the end demonstration effect, which simplifies the process. Alternatively, consistency can be maintained by simple (simple) processing.
(Modification 2)
In the above-described embodiment, the transition to the specific special game is set with the subsequent time reduction and the probability variation transition. In a modified example, whether or not the specific special game is accompanied by a probability change may be determined by lottery. Specifically, it is also possible to determine the subsequent short-time transition by the start of the specific special game, and to determine the probabilistic transition afterwards regardless of the type of the special symbol by passing the specific area of the game ball. According to such a configuration, the probability change is given by passing through the specific area separately from the result of the winning / failing lottery (result of the symbol lottery). Can do. Moreover, you may make it transfer to a more advantageous game state by entering a specific area | region in a specific special game. For example, on the condition that the game ball passes through a specific area, the number of times of the short time after the specific special game may be increased, or the period of time in which the probability change game state is set may be increased. Accordingly, it is possible to realize a game property that is more advantageous to the player as the game ball passes to the specific area, that is, the continuation condition is achieved.
(Modification 3)
In the above embodiment, a special winning opening (first grand prize opening) possessed by a specific area and a large winning opening (second grand prize opening) that is not provided are provided separately, and the former is a special large game for specific special games and small hit games. An example is shown in which a prize opening is used and the latter is a special prize opening exclusively for special games. In a modified example, one common big prize opening may be provided for the normal special game, the special special game, and the small hit game. In that case, for the specific special game, a determination process may be performed so that the ball entering the big prize opening is regarded as passing through the specific area. That is, the entire inside of the special winning opening may be regarded as the specific area. Whether or not it is regarded as a specific area as such may be determined by whether or not the stop symbol of the special symbol indicates a shift to the specific special game. The opening / closing pattern of the special winning opening in each game may be set in the same manner as in the above embodiment. In this way, the configuration of the gaming machine can be simplified by sharing the special winning opening. Moreover, when providing two big prize winning openings, both big winning prize openings are good also as a big winning prize opening which has a specific area | region. By doing so, it is possible to standardize members and to unify the processing for specific areas during special games. Also, in the normal special game, the passing condition of the game ball to the specific area may be set as the continuation condition as in the special special game. Even in such a case, the second grand prize opening 92 operates in an opening / closing pattern in which a game ball can enter, so that the continuation condition is easily satisfied and the player's profit is secured. On the other hand, in the special special game, the first grand prize opening 91 operates in an opening / closing pattern in which it is difficult to enter the ball, so the special special game is ended early and the above-described gameability including the impact due to sudden probability change is maintained.
(Modification 4)
Although not described in the above embodiment, in order to make the profit state of the normal special game higher, it may be set so that the normal special game is always accompanied by a probability change transition. On the contrary, a special special game may be selected depending on the type of special symbol when a transition to a specific special game is determined by providing a specific special game with or without a certain variation.
(Modification 5)
In the above-described embodiment, an example in which the present invention is applied to a conventional type 1 pachinko gaming machine has been shown, but the present invention can also be applied to other types of gaming machines having the function of the first type pachinko gaming machine. For example, the present invention can be applied to a multi-function machine in which a plurality of first type pachinko gaming machines are mixed. In addition, a complex that provides a game corresponding to a special game in the first type pachinko gaming machine as the first special game, and a game corresponding to a special game in the second type pachinko game machine as the second special game. It can also be applied to the machine.
(Modification 6)
In each of the above-described embodiments, the structure shown in FIGS. 4 to 6 is illustrated as a special winning opening having a specific area. In a modification, you may employ | adopt various structures different from these. For example, in the above-described embodiment, a sensor for detecting a ball entering a specific area of the big prize opening and a sensor for detecting a ball entering a non-specific area are separately provided, and any of the sensors detects the passage of a game ball. An example is shown in which the winning in the big winning opening is determined. In the modified example, a merging portion is provided downstream of the specific region and the non-specific region, a first sensor is provided in the specific region to detect the passing of the game ball, and a second sensor is provided downstream of the merging portion. It may be configured to detect a winning at the big winning opening. In that case, it is not necessary to provide a sensor in the non-specific region. That is, it may be configured to detect only the presence / absence of a ball required for game control (in this case, a configuration to detect winning in a big winning opening and passing through a specific area). However, in that case, in particular, it is necessary to appropriately set the “residual effective period” described above for detection of winning in the big winning opening.
(Modification 7)
In the configuration of the above-described embodiment, the establishment of the special game continuation condition described above can be determined by the detection of the game ball by the second incoming sensor 224. The continuation determination may be performed simultaneously with turning on the passage flag indicating that at the timing when the game ball passes through the specific area, that is, when the passage is detected by the second incoming sensor 224. In the above embodiment, an example is shown in which a non-specific area is provided on the left side of the big prize opening and a specific area is provided on the right side. However, depending on the arrangement of the structures in the game area, a specific area is provided on the left side. A non-specific area may be provided on the right side. And you may provide the inclination ball path which inclines downward from the right side to the left side in the winning area of a big winning opening. Such a configuration is particularly effective in a configuration in which it is easy to enter a big winning opening by so-called right-handed hitting.
(Modification 8)
In the above-described embodiment, the first entrance 218 and the second entrance 220 are adjacent to each other, that is, the specific region 94 and the non-specific region 95 are adjacent. In a modified example, the first entrance 218 and the second entrance 220 may be arranged at a predetermined interval. For example, even if it is assumed that a plurality of game balls stay in the vicinity of the inner wall 236 and the subsequent game balls flow down and rebound, they may be separated so as not to enter the first entrance 218. Good. Even in this case, a step may be provided between the first part 230 and the second part 232, but the step may be omitted with a sufficient distance between the first entrance 218 and the second entrance 220. Good. However, as in the above-described embodiment, the first entrance port 218 and the second entrance port 220 are arranged closer to each other to save space and reduce the size of the entire first entrance port 91. Is convenient.
(Modification 9)
In the above embodiment, the first portion 230 inclines downward toward the front in the inclined ball passage 212, while the second portion 232 inclines toward the back, so that the game ball enters the first entrance. A ball was entered into the second entrance 220 without entering the entrance 218. In the modified example, the second entrance is performed while restricting the entrance to the first entrance 218 by the momentum of the rolling of the game ball without tilting the inclined ball passage 212 forward at the first portion 230 in this way. The inclination angle of the inclined sphere passage 212 may be set to a predetermined angle or more so that it can be led to the bulb opening 220. That is, the passage shape of the inclined sphere passage 212 may be set to a specific shape that encourages entry into the second entry port 220 while restricting entry into the first entry port 218. However, as in the above-described embodiment, it is more convenient to reduce the inclination angle of the inclined ball passage 212 to reduce the space in the first grand prize winning port 91 and to reduce the size of the first grand prize winning port 91 as a whole.
(Modification 10)
In the above embodiment and the modified example, in order to secure the player's profit when the player enters the ball despite having a configuration that makes it difficult to enter the grand prize opening, it is specified more than the non-specific area. Although the passing rate of the game balls to the area is increased, conversely, the shape and arrangement of the passage may be set so that it is difficult for the game balls to pass through the specific area. For example, in the above embodiment, the first entrance 218 may be the entrance of the specific area 94 and the second entrance 220 may be the entrance of the non-specific area 95. In this way, the special game can be completed in a shorter time, and the performance time is shifted due to the passage of the game ball to the specific area, or the digestion time set for the special game or the small hit game is shifted. Can be suppressed.
(Modification 11)
In the above embodiment, the continuation upper limit number of unit games is fixed (15 times) in both the normal special game and the specific special game. However, in a modified example, a plurality of upper limit times may be provided. For example, for each of the special special game where the game is expected and the specific special game where the game is not expected, the upper limit number of times of the unit game is set to 15 (15R jackpot) and 5 (5R jackpot). It may be. In this case as well, the continuation rate is low because the opening time of the special winning opening in the specific special game is short. For this reason, it becomes difficult to distinguish between the special special game and the small hit game, so that it is possible to achieve the game performance that raises the player's expectation.
