Description

  The present invention relates to a gaming machine in which a winning device is provided in a gaming area formed on a gaming board.
  Conventionally, pachinko machines are known as one of gaming machines. In the pachinko machine, a center role having a symbol display device, a start winning device having a start winning port, a big winning device having a big winning port, and the like are arranged in a game area formed on the game board. In the game area, a large number of guide nails are guided to guide the game balls flowing down.
  Also, some gaming machines play games by a method called “right-handed” in which a game ball flows down to the area on the right side of the center bonus in the game area. In the case of a gaming machine that performs a right-handed game, for example, there is one in which a big prize opening is arranged on the right side of the gaming area (for example, Patent Document 1).
  In many cases, the center character is arranged in the approximate center of the game area. In addition, the symbol display device is for displaying various symbols composed of numbers and pictures. In the case of a general gaming machine, a total of nine symbols, three vertically and three horizontally on the symbol display device. There are many things that display symbols. Also, in recent gaming machines, there are those that display animations and moving images on a symbol display device.
  The gaming machine is played by causing a game ball to flow down to the game area. When a game ball flowing down the game area wins the start winning opening, the game machine draws whether or not to start a game in a state advantageous to the player (hereinafter referred to as a jackpot state). A variable display game is performed in which an animation is displayed on the symbol display device, or the symbol is variably displayed for a predetermined time, and then the symbol corresponding to the result of the previous lottery is stopped and displayed. When the lottery is won, the variable display device stops and displays the symbol corresponding to the winning (for example, “7-7-7”), and notifies the player that the game in the big hit state is started. Then, the game balls flowing down by opening the grand prize opening are made easy to win, and the number of winning balls corresponding to the number of winning game balls is paid out.
  A player plays a game paying attention to the movement of the game ball flowing down the game area before the game ball wins the start winning opening, and if the game ball wins the start winning opening, A game is played paying attention to whether or not to shift to a game. In particular, the player often proceeds with the game while visually recognizing the symbol display device with a great expectation that the game may be shifted to a game in a big hit state after the game ball is won at the start winning opening. . For this reason, it is possible to increase the player's expectation by performing effects such as changing various display modes by the symbol display device, and changing the light emission mode of the entire center accessory having the symbol display device. The interest of the player in the game can be greatly improved.

In other words, the second opening / closing blade 52 is set to operate in an advantageous manner for the player in the variable speed state in which the total open time corresponding to one normal hit is longer than in the non-variable state. . For this reason, the shortened state is a state in which the second opening / closing blade 52 is easily moved to the open state and the entrance rate is improved. Therefore, when the variable state is given, a right-handed game is performed aiming at the right side of the game area. Normally, the second starting prize-winning device 34 is kept closed because it is in an invariable state. However, when the release condition of the second opening / closing blade 52 is established as the game progresses, the first solenoid 54 is excited. Is done.
  Therefore, the first plunger 55 is drawn into the first solenoid 54. At this time, the first actuating member 56 engaged with the flange portion 55a of the first plunger 55 moves in the A direction in FIG. When the first actuating member 56 moves in the A direction, the engaging recess 76 formed in the first actuating member 56 also moves in the A direction. At this time, the projecting piece 78a of the driven member that engages with the engaging recess 76 moves in the B direction in FIG. 14 (b) with the shaft hole 77 serving as the rotation axis when the first operating member 56 moves in the A direction. To turn. By this rotation of the driven member, the first rotating shaft 61 inserted into the shaft hole 77 and operating integrally with the driven member also rotates in the B direction. When the first rotating shaft 61 rotates in the B direction, the second opening / closing blade 52 press-fitted and fixed to the tip of the first rotating shaft 61 rotates in the B direction with the press-fitting hole 63 as a rotating shaft. That is, the second opening / closing blade 52 in this case rotates from the closed position to the open position.
  On the other hand, when the excitation is released from the state in which the first solenoid 54 is excited, the force for pulling the first plunger 55 by the first solenoid 54 does not occur. Therefore, the first plunger 55 moves from a state where it is drawn into the first solenoid 54 to a state where it protrudes from the first solenoid 54 by the urging force of the first compression coil spring 65. At this time, the first operating member 56 engaged with the first plunger 55 moves in the direction C in FIG. When the first actuating member 56 moves in the C direction, the engaging recess 76 formed in the first actuating member 56 also moves in the C direction. At this time, as shown in FIG. 14B, the projecting piece 78a of the driven member engaged with the engaging recess 76 moves to the left side as shown in FIG. Rotate in the direction. By the rotation of the driven member, the first rotating shaft 61 rotates in the D direction, and the second opening / closing blade 52 press-fitted and fixed to the tip of the first rotating shaft 61 thereby also has the pressing hole 63 through the rotating shaft. As shown in FIG. That is, in this case, the second opening / closing blade 52 rotates from the open position to the closed position.
  In this way, the second start winning device 34 of the gaming machine 1 according to the present embodiment is driven to open and close between the closed position and the open position.
[Operation of Second Drive Mechanism 84]
Next, the operation of the second drive mechanism 84 will be described with reference to FIGS. 15 to 16 show the operation when the opening / closing member 83 moves from the closed position to the open position, and FIG. 17 shows the operation when the opening / closing member 83 moves from the open position to the closed position. .
  First, the operation when the opening / closing member 83 moves from the closed position to the open position will be described. The special winning device 24 is normally located at a closed position where the game ball B is not received in the special winning opening 91. At this time, since the second solenoid 96 is not excited, the second plunger 97 is kept protruding from the second solenoid 96 by the biasing force of the second compression coil spring 103. Therefore, the flange portion 97 a formed at the distal end of the second plunger 97 is in contact with the inner surface of the second operating member 98 at the distal end surface of the flange portion 97 a.
  When the second solenoid 96 is excited in such a state, the force with which the second plunger 97 is pulled by the second solenoid 96 is larger than the urging force of the second compression coil spring 103. Therefore, the second plunger 97 is drawn into the second solenoid 96. At this time, the front end surface of the flange portion 97a of the second plunger 97 does not come into contact with the inner surface of the second operating member 98, and the rear end surface of the flange portion 97a is connected to the third projecting pin 117 and the fourth of the second operating member 98. Abuts against the protruding pin 118. This state is shown in FIG. The second plunger 97 moves further in the direction in which it is drawn by the excitation of the second solenoid 96 even after the rear end surface of the flange portion 97a comes into contact with the third protruding pin 117 and the fourth protruding pin 118. Therefore, the second actuating member 98 starts to rotate in the direction E in FIG. 15B with the first projecting pin 114 and the fifth projecting pin 119 as pivot axes. As described above, when the second actuating member 98 starts to rotate, the position of the second projecting pin 115 also changes with this rotation. That is, as shown in FIG. 15A, when the second solenoid 96 is not energized, the lock portion 116 formed on the second protruding pin 115 is the engagement recess 123 of the second driven member 99. The state is engaged with the right corner 123a. However, as shown in FIG. 15B, when the second solenoid 96 is excited and the second actuating member 98 is rotated, the second protruding pin 115 is also F in FIG. Since it rotates in the direction, the engagement state between the lock portion 116 and the engagement recess 123 is released. Then, the second protruding pin 115 further rotates in the F direction and comes into contact with the left side surface of the engaging recess 123.
  Even after the second projecting pin 115 contacts the left side surface of the engaging recess 123 of the second driven member 99, it rotates in the direction E in FIG. Therefore, the second driven member 99 receives a force as the second projecting pin 115 rotates, that is, the second operating member 98 rotates. At this time, since the second driven member 99 is rotatably fixed in the fixing hole 121, when the second operating member 98 receives a force along with the rotation of the second actuating member 98, the fixing hole 121 is used as the rotating shaft. , Rotation starts in the direction F in FIG. When the second driven member 99 rotates in the F direction, the opening / closing member 83 fitted to the engagement pin 92 in the slide hole 122 of the second driven member 99 is moved in the G direction in FIG. Movement, i.e., sliding backward from the closed position to the open position.
  The opening / closing member 83 that has started sliding by such an operation is continuously slid backward by moving to a position where the second plunger 97 is pulled into the second solenoid 96. And as shown in FIG. 16, it moves to the open position where the special winning opening 91 is opened.
  After moving to the open position, the opening / closing member 83 slides again to the closed position when a predetermined condition is satisfied. In this case, the excitation of the second solenoid 96 is first stopped. The second plunger 97 located at the position drawn into the second solenoid 96 protrudes from the second solenoid 96 from the position drawn into the second solenoid 96 by the urging force of the second compression coil spring 103. Move up. At this time, the flange portion 97a of the second plunger 97 whose rear surface is in contact with the third protrusion pin 117 and the fourth protrusion pin 118 does not come into contact because it moves in the H direction in FIG. The front end surface of the portion 97a and the inner side surface of the second operating member 98 abut.
  The second plunger 97 moves further in the direction protruding from the second solenoid 96 by the biasing force of the second compression coil spring 103 even after the front end surface of the flange portion 97a and the inner surface of the second operating member 98 abut. . Therefore, the second plunger 97 applies a force pushing in the H direction to the second operating member 98. The second actuating member 98 that has received such force starts to rotate in the direction I in FIG. 17B with the first projecting pin 114 and the fifth projecting pin 119 as pivot axes.
  When the second actuating member 98 starts to rotate in the I direction, the second projecting pin 115 that has been in contact with the left end surface of the engaging concave portion 123 of the second driven member 99 rotates in the I direction to make contact. The second protruding pin 115 comes into contact with the right end surface of the engaging recess 123. In FIG. 17B, the lock portion 116 formed on the second projecting pin 115 is in contact with the right end surface of the engaging recess 123. The second actuating member 98 is rotated in the I direction until the second plunger 97 is located at a position protruding from the second solenoid 96, and the second driven member 99 is also rotated by the second actuating member 98. In conjunction, it rotates in the J direction. At this time, the opening / closing member 83 moves in the K direction in FIG. 17B by the rotation of the second driven member 99, and moves in the forward direction from the open position toward the closed position. Then, when the second plunger 97 is located at a position protruding from the second solenoid 96, the rotation of the second operating member 98 and the second driven member 99 is stopped, and the opening / closing member 83 is located at the closed position.
  Next, the operation of the big winning device 24 when the opening / closing member 83 receives a force from the closed position toward the open position when the second solenoid 96 is not excited will be described with reference to FIG. First, when the second solenoid 96 is not energized, the lock portion 116 formed on the second projecting pin 115 of the first actuating member 56 engages with the right end portion of the engaging recess 123 of the second driven member 99. Match. In this case, if a force is applied in the backward direction to move the opening / closing member 83 from the closed position to the open position in order to move in the L direction in FIG. With the hole 121 as a rotation axis, rotation is started in the M direction shown in FIG. However, when it is attempted to rotate in the M direction, the right corner 123a of the engaging recess 123 of the second driven member 99 and the lock portion 116 of the second actuating member 98 are firmly engaged. For this reason, the second driven member 99 is not rotated by the locking action by engaging with the lock portion 116, and the opening / closing member 83 cannot be moved backward.
[Operation effect of the gaming machine 1]
In the big prize device 24 of the gaming machine 1 according to the present embodiment, the second operating member 98, the second driven member 99, and the opening / closing member 83 operate in conjunction with the excitation of the second solenoid 96 or the stop of the excitation. At this time, since the second actuating member 98 is disposed on the lower case member 102 and the second driven member 99 is disposed on the upper case member 101, the space efficiency in the depth direction of the second drive mechanism 84 is further improved. Is possible.
  Also, the big prize device 24 of the gaming machine 1 according to the present embodiment may try to forcefully slide the open / close member 83 from the closed position to the open position due to factors other than those caused by the excitation of the second solenoid 96. Since the above-described locking action acts greatly, the movement of the opening / closing member 83 can be reliably prevented. Therefore, the opening / closing member 83 cannot be forcibly slid from the closed position to the open position for an unauthorized purpose, and it is possible to reliably prevent a go-to action such as acquiring a large number of prize balls for an unauthorized purpose. become.
  Further, in the gaming machine 1 according to the present embodiment, the flow-down passage 45 is formed on the right side of the decorative frame 31 of the center accessory 23, and the ribs 41 are provided on the collar portion 32 and the decorative member 33 that constitute the flow-down passage 45. As a result, the flow speed of the game ball B flowing down the flow path 45 can be reduced. Therefore, it is possible to improve the probability that the game ball B wins the second start winning device 34 provided below the downflow passage 45. This is because in order for the game ball B to win the second start winning device 34, the game ball B needs to be guided toward the second start winning port 51 by colliding with the game nail. This is because when the falling speed of the ball B is high, the game nail may not be guided even if it collides with the game nail. In addition, when a so-called right-handed game is performed, the impact strength when the launching device is shot is stronger than when a left-handed game is performed, and the speed at which the game ball B flows down is also faster. The probability of winning the second start winning device 34 provided at 31 is extremely low. On the other hand, according to the gaming machine 1 according to the present embodiment, the game ball B is collided with the rib 41 on the upstream side of the position where the second start winning device 34 is arranged, and the flow velocity is reduced in advance. Therefore, the probability that the game ball B flowing down is guided toward the second start winning device 34 can be greatly increased.
  As mentioned above, although the embodiment of the gaming machine according to the present invention has been described in detail, the gaming machine according to the present invention is not limited to this, and can be arbitrarily changed without departing from the spirit of the present invention. Also good.
