In the present embodiment, the number of symbols that move with the rotation of the reel within the specified time is referred to as “the number of sliding symbols”. When the specified time is 190 msec, the maximum number of sliding symbols is set to 4 symbols, and when the specified time is 75 msec, the maximum number of sliding symbols is set to 1 symbol.
  When the internal winning combination allowing the symbol combination display related to winning is determined, the reel stop control means usually displays the symbol combination within the specified time of 190 msec (four symbols) for the winning determination line. The rotation of the reel is stopped so as to display as much as possible. In addition, the reel stop control means is defined for one or more reels when, for example, a challenge bonus (CB), which is a second type special character, and a middle bonus (MB) that continuously activates CB are operated. The reel rotation is stopped so that the combination of symbols is displayed as much as possible along the winning determination line within a time of 75 msec (for one symbol). Furthermore, the reel stop control means uses various specified times corresponding to the gaming state to rotate the reels so that combinations of symbols that are not permitted to be displayed by the internal winning combination are not displayed along the winning determination line. Stop.
  Thus, when the rotation of the plurality of reels is all stopped, the winning determination means determines whether or not the combination of symbols displayed along the winning determination line is related to winning. This winning determination means is carried out by a main control circuit described later. When it is determined by the winning determination means that it is related to winning, a privilege such as paying out medals is given to the player. In a pachislot machine, a series of flows as described above is performed as one game.
  Also, in the pachislot machine, in the series of flows described above, video display performed by an image display device such as a liquid crystal display device, light output performed by various lamps, sound output performed by a speaker, or a combination thereof is used. Various productions are performed.
  When the start lever is operated, an effect random number value (hereinafter referred to as effect random number value) is extracted separately from the random number value used for determining the internal winning combination. When the effect random number value is extracted, the effect content determining means determines, by lottery, what is to be executed this time from among a plurality of types of effect contents associated with the internal winning combination. This effect content determination means is carried out by a sub-control circuit described later.
  When the contents of the effect are determined, the effect executing means executes the corresponding effect in conjunction with each opportunity, such as when the rotation of the reels starts, when the rotation of each reel stops, or when determining whether there is a winning. As described above, in the pachislot machine, the player has an opportunity to know or predict the determined internal winning combination (in other words, a combination of symbols to be aimed at) by executing the production contents associated with the internal winning combination. The player's interest can be improved.

<Main control circuit>
Next, the main control circuit 91 constituted by the main control board 41 will be described with reference to FIG. FIG. 5 is a block diagram illustrating a configuration example of the main control circuit 91 of the pachislot machine 1.
  As shown in FIG. 5, a main control circuit 91 as a main control unit includes a microcomputer 92 installed on the main control board 41 as a main component, and controls the progress of the game. The microcomputer 92 includes a main CPU 93, a main ROM 94, and a main RAM 95.
  The main ROM 94 stores a control program executed by the main CPU 93, a data table, data for transmitting various control commands (command signals) to the sub control circuit 101, and the like. The main RAM 95 is provided with a storage area for storing various data such as an internal winning combination determined by execution of the control program.
  The main CPU 93 is connected to a clock pulse generation circuit 96, a frequency divider 97, a random number generator 98, and a sampling circuit 99. The clock pulse generation circuit 96 and the frequency divider 97 generate clock pulses. The main CPU 93 executes a control program based on the generated clock pulse. The random number generator 98 generates a random number in a predetermined range (for example, 0 to 65535). The sampling circuit 99 extracts one value from the generated random numbers.
  The main CPU 93 counts the number of times pulses are output to the stepping motors of the reels 3L, 3C, 3R after detecting the reel index. Thereby, the main CPU 93 manages the rotation angle of each reel 3L, 3C, 3R (mainly, how many symbols the reel has rotated).
  The reel index is information indicating that the reel has made one revolution. This reel index is provided at a predetermined position of each of the reels 3L, 3C, 3R, for example, with a light emitting unit and a light receiving unit, and between the light emitting unit and the light receiving unit by the rotation of each reel 3L, 3C, 3R. Detection is performed by a reel position detection unit (not shown) including a detection piece interposed therebetween.
  Here, the management of the rotation angle of each reel 3L, 3C, 3R will be specifically described. The number of pulses output to the stepping motor is counted by a pulse counter provided in the main RAM 95. Each time the output of a predetermined number of pulses (for example, 16 times) necessary for the rotation of one symbol is counted by the pulse counter, the symbol counter provided in the main RAM 95 is incremented by one. The symbol counter is provided for each reel 3L, 3C, 3R. The value of the symbol counter is cleared when a reel index is detected by a reel position detector (not shown).
  In other words, in the present embodiment, by managing the symbol counter, it is possible to manage how many symbols have been rotated since the reel index was detected. Therefore, the position of each symbol on each reel 3L, 3C, 3R is detected with reference to the position where the reel index is detected.
  In the present embodiment, the maximum number of sliding symbols is basically set to 4 symbols. Therefore, when the left stop button 17L is pressed, the symbol of the left reel 3L in the middle of the display window 4 and each symbol within the range up to four symbols ahead can be stopped in the middle of the display window 4. It becomes a simple design.

  Next, the detailed configuration of the reel unit 3 according to the present embodiment will be described with reference to FIGS.
  As shown in FIG. 7, the reel unit 3 is detachably accommodated in the cabinet 2a by the support 3a being slidably mounted on a support plate 2c provided in the cabinet 2a. In addition, the support body 3a is not limited to the support plate 2c, and for example, may be configured such that rails or the like are attached to the inner side surfaces of the left and right side plates of the cabinet 2a and are slidably attached thereto.
  The support 3a has a box-shaped or semi-cylindrical shape that covers approximately half of the reel 3L, 3C, 3R on the back side of the gaming machine, and the front side of the gaming machine is opened.
  Further, the support 3a is located outside the area visible from the display window 4, that is, below the display window 4 that is not visible when the display window 4 is viewed from the front of the gaming machine, and the front door 2b and the three reels 3L, 3C, There is a protruding portion 30 protruding to the display window 4 side so as to close the gap between 3R. The protruding portion 30 is attached to the support 3a by a fastening member such as a screw. The protruding portion 30 may be integrally formed with the support 3a.
  In addition, the protruding portion 30 has a pair of projecting pieces 31 projecting from the left and right edges on the front side of the gaming machine in which the opening of the support 3a is formed and projecting to the front side of the gaming machine, and extends in the left and right direction of the gaming machine. An interference preventing piece 32 provided between the pair of protruding pieces 31 is configured. Thereby, the protruding portion 30 forms a frame that surrounds the lower portions of the reels 3L, 3C, 3R. The protruding portion 30 is not limited to the frame body, and may be, for example, a box-shaped or fan-shaped shape that covers the lower portions of the reels 3L, 3C, and 3R and has an open upper portion.
  Here, as shown in FIGS. 7 and 8, the pachi-slot machine 1 is provided on the electrical equipment (for example, the sub control board 42 and the LED board 72) provided on the front door 2b side and on the cabinet 2a side. A harness 35 for electrically connecting electrical components (for example, the main control board 41 and the power supply device 44) is provided.
  The harness 35 is a bundle of various wires and is covered with a corrugated tube, a resin tape, or the like. The harness 35 may not be covered with a corrugated tube, a resin tape, or the like.
  Such a harness 35 is normally fixed to the cabinet 2a by a clamp 36 or fixed to the front door 2b by a clip 37 as shown in FIG. This prevents the harness 35 from interfering with various devices provided in the cabinet 2a.
  However, for example, the harness 35 may come off from the clamp 36 or the clip 37 with the opening / closing of the front door 2b. FIG. 8 shows a state where the harness 35 is detached from the clip 37.
  As shown in FIG. 8, when the harness 35 is detached from the clip 37, the harness 35 that has been fixed to the front door 2b until then may be bent toward the reels 3L, 3C, 3R. In this case, if the front door 2b is closed with respect to the cabinet 2a, the harness 35 may come into contact with the reels 3L, 3C, 3R.
  However, in the present embodiment, even when the harness 35 is bent toward the reels 3L, 3C, 3R as described above, the protruding portion 30 contacts the reels 3L, 3C, 3R with the protruding portion 30. Can be prevented.
  Specifically, as shown in FIG. 9, when the front door 2 b is closed with respect to the cabinet 2 a, the bent harness 35 is pressed against the front door 2 b side by the interference prevention piece 32 of the protruding portion 30. . Thereby, it is avoided that the harness 35 contacts the reels 3L, 3C, 3R. As described above, the protruding portion 30 according to the present embodiment has a function of preventing the harness 35 from being bent by closing the front door 2b.
  At this time, the interference prevention piece 32 approaches the display window 4 so as to close the gap between the front door 2b and the three reels 3L, 3C, 3R. Even if it is going to see, it will be interrupted by the interference prevention piece 32. FIG. Thereby, the hopper device 43 and the power supply device 44 in the cabinet 2a are not visually recognized from the outside.
  The protruding portion 30 also has a function as a handle that can be gripped by an operator such as a game shop clerk when the reel unit 3 is attached to or detached from the cabinet 2a. Specifically, the front end side of the interference preventing piece 32 has a shape protruding downward so that the operator's finger can be easily applied. Note that the shape of the interference prevention piece 32 is not limited to the above-described shape, and any shape may be used as long as it is easy for the operator to apply the finger.
  Thereby, the operator can easily attach and detach the reel unit 3 to and from the cabinet 2a by using the interference prevention piece 32 as a handle. In particular, in the present embodiment, since the protruding portion 30 is provided on the lower side of the support body 3a, the sliding operation of the support body 3a on the support plate 2c can be performed smoothly.
  Next, a detailed configuration of the accessory driving unit 221 according to the present embodiment will be described with reference to FIGS. 10 and 11.
  As shown in FIGS. 10A and 10B, the accessory drive unit 221 includes a drive motor 230, a pinion gear 231, a reduction gear mechanism 232 as an output gear, a worm gear 233, an arm member 235, and an attachment. And a torsion spring 236 as a biasing member.
  The drive motor 230 has a drive shaft 230a. The pinion gear 231 is attached to the drive shaft 230a so as to be integrally rotatable. The reduction gear mechanism 232 includes a first reduction gear 232a that meshes with the pinion gear 231 and a second reduction gear 232b that meshes with the first reduction gear 232a.
  A worm gear 233 is attached to the second reduction gear 232b so as to be integrally rotatable. Therefore, the reduction gear mechanism 232 decelerates the rotation of the pinion gear 231 with the first reduction gear 232a and the second reduction gear 232b and transmits it to the worm gear 233. Thereby, the torque transmitted from the pinion gear 231 to the worm gear 233 is amplified.
  The worm gear 233 is attached to the second reduction gear 232b so as to be integrally rotatable, and is rotatably supported by the case 261 via a pair of bearings 234. The case 261 is fixed to the housing 46 (see FIG. 3) described above via a bracket (not shown).
  The arm member 235 has a gear portion 235a that engages with the worm gear 233 at one end. One end of the arm member 235 is rotatably supported by the case 261 with the rotation shaft 237 as a fulcrum. Therefore, the arm member 235 rotates in the vertical direction according to the rotation of the worm gear 233.
  In addition, an elongated hole 235 b for attaching the liquid crystal display device 11 is formed at the other end of the arm member 235.
  The torsion spring 236 has a coil portion attached to the rotating shaft 237, one end locked to a locking piece 235 c formed on the arm member 235, and the other end connected to a locking piece 261 a formed on the case 261. It has been stopped. Thereby, the torsion spring 236 always urges the arm member 235 upward.
  As shown in FIG. 11, two accessory driving units 221 configured in this way are provided side by side in the left-right direction of the gaming machine (left-right direction in the figure). Thereby, the liquid crystal display device 11 can be reliably moved up and down.
  On the other hand, the liquid crystal display device 11 has two attachment pieces 110 on the back side, and a connecting shaft 111 is attached to these attachment pieces 110. The connecting shaft 111 is inserted into the elongated hole 235b of the arm member 235. Thereby, the liquid crystal display device 11 is connected to the other end of the arm member 235.
  Further, the liquid crystal display device 11 and the pair of accessory driving units 221 are connected via a pair of linear guide mechanisms 120. Thereby, the liquid crystal display device 11 can be stably moved in the vertical direction.
  Here, the operation of the accessory driving unit 221 will be described with reference to FIGS.
  First, as shown in FIG. 10A, when the drive motor 230 is driven in a state where the liquid crystal display device 11 is lowered, the pinion gear 231 rotates, and the rotation is transmitted to the worm gear 233 via the reduction gear mechanism 232. Communicated.
  Next, when the worm gear 233 rotates, the gear portion 235a of the arm member 235 rotates in the clockwise direction in the drawing. At this time, the rotation direction transmitted from the drive motor 230 is changed by the worm gear 233. That is, the rotation direction of the worm gear 233 and the rotation direction of the gear portion 235a are orthogonal to each other.
  Thereafter, when the worm gear 233 further rotates, as shown in FIG. 10B, the arm member 235 further rotates clockwise in the drawing. Thereby, the liquid crystal display device 11 rises.
  At this time, since the torsion spring 236 urges the arm member 235 upward, the arm member 235 can be easily rotated clockwise using the urging force of the torsion spring 236.
  Next, the liquid crystal display device 11 reaches the raised position shown in FIG. 10B and is maintained at that position. At this time, since the rotation direction of the worm gear 233 and the rotation direction of the gear portion 235a are orthogonal to each other, it is possible to prevent the gear portion 235a from rotating counterclockwise due to the weight of the liquid crystal display device 11. . At this time, since the weight of the liquid crystal display device 11 is reduced by the biasing force of the torsion spring 236, the rotational force of the gear portion 235a in the counterclockwise direction is reduced. For this reason, the liquid crystal display device 11 is reliably maintained at the raised position shown in FIG.
  Further, in the present embodiment, as described above, the biasing force of the torsion spring 236 has a function of reducing the weight of the liquid crystal display device 11, so that deterioration of the drive motor 230 can be suppressed. As described above, in the present embodiment, the above-described effects can be obtained with a simple and low-cost configuration in which the torsion spring 236 corresponding to the weight of the liquid crystal display device 11 is provided.
  In the present embodiment, the torsion spring 236 is used as a configuration for reducing the weight of the liquid crystal display device 11. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and a plate spring, an air damper, or the like can be used instead. is there.
  Next, a detailed configuration of the selector 26 according to the present embodiment will be described with reference to FIGS.
  As shown in FIG. 12, the selector 26 is attached to the downstream side of the medal slot 13 (see FIG. 2) on the back surface of the front door 2b (see FIG. 3). The selector 26 includes a base frame 26a and a guide cover 26b that is rotatably attached to the base frame 26a. The guide cover 26b is always urged toward the base frame 26a by a torsion spring (not shown).
  When the base frame 26a and the guide cover 26b are closed, a part of the inner side surfaces facing each other are in contact with each other to form a passage through which the medal passes so as to maintain a gap slightly wider than the thickness of the medal.
  In the upper left part of the selector 26, there is provided a slot 260 which is an entrance for medals formed by the base frame 26a and the guide cover 26b. In addition, a guide passage 262 that communicates with the insertion slot 260 and guides medals in the selector 26 is formed inside the selector 26 as shown by a one-dot chain line in FIG.
  Regular medals inserted into the selector 26 from the insertion port 260 are discharged from the selector outlet 263 to the guide rail 27 through the guide passage 262. In addition, a return passage 264 is formed in the selector 26, and unauthorized fake medals and acceptance prohibited medals are discharged to the lower portion of the selector 26 through the return passage 264 and are not discharged to the guide rail 27.
  Here, the selector 26 is provided with an insertion sensor 80, a first medal passage sensor 81, and a second medal passage sensor 82 on the guide passage 262. The insertion sensor 80, the first passage sensor 81, and the second passage sensor 82 detect medals passing through the guide passage 262, and constitute medal passage detection means.
  As shown in FIG. 13A, the insertion sensor 80 is configured by a transmissive photo interrupter. When the medal is not inserted into the insertion slot 260, the shielding member 801a of the rotating member 801 is separated from the light emitting element. By blocking the emitted light, it is detected that no medal is inserted into the insertion slot 260.
  On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 13B, when a medal is inserted into the insertion slot 260, the rotating member 801 rotates counterclockwise in the drawing, and the shielding member 801 a is detached from the insertion sensor 80. Accordingly, the insertion sensor 80 can detect that the light emitted from the light emitting element is detected by the light receiving element, and the medal is inserted into the insertion slot 260.
  As shown in FIG. 14, the first medal passage sensor 81 is configured by a transmissive photo interrupter, and the light emitting element and the light receiving element are arranged so as to face each other with the guide passage 262 interposed therebetween. The first medal passage sensor 81 detects that the medal has passed through the guide passage 262 when light is blocked by the medal passing through the guide passage 262.
  As shown in FIG. 15A, the second medal passage sensor 82 is configured by a transmissive photo interrupter, and in the state where the medal does not pass through the guide passage 262, the shielding member 802a of the rotating member 802. Is in a state where the light emitted from the light emitting element is not blocked.
  On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 15B, when the medal passes through the guide passage 262, the rotating member 802 rotates clockwise in the figure, and the shielding member 802a emits the light emitted from the light emitting element. Cut off. Thereby, the second medal passage sensor 82 detects that the medal has passed through the guide passage 262.
  Here, all of the insertion sensor 80, the first medal passage sensor 81, and the second medal passage sensor 82 described above may be configured by a reflective photo interrupter. Moreover, you may comprise only arbitrary sensors by a reflection type photo interrupter among these sensors.
  As shown in FIG. 12, a guide rail 27 is attached to the selector 26 via a reinforcing plate (not shown). Specifically, the guide rail 27 is attached to the selector 26 so that the medal receiving port communicates with the selector outlet 263. The medal outlet of the guide rail 27 is opened toward the hopper device 43. Thereby, the guide rail 27 can guide the regular medals that have passed through the selector 26 to the hopper device 43.
  Further, the guide rail 27 is formed of a resin transparent member, for example. The guide rail 27 is not limited to a transparent member, and is not limited to resin.
  The guide rail passage sensor 83 described above is attached to the guide rail 27 via an attachment member 271. The guide rail passage sensor 83 is configured by a reflective photo interrupter. The guide rail passage sensor 83 may be configured by a transmissive photo interrupter.
  The guide rail passage sensor 83 is provided on the hopper device 43 side (outlet side) on the guide rail 27 rather than the selector 26 side (receiving port side). As a result, the distance between the medal slot 13 and the guide rail passage sensor 83 is increased, and access from the medal slot 13 to the guide rail passage sensor 83 is not easily performed.
  Next, a detailed configuration of the medal slot 13 according to the present embodiment will be described with reference to FIGS. 16 and 17.
  As shown in FIG. 16, the medal slot 13 is formed in the slot member 130, and is provided in the pedestal portion 12 via the slot member 130.
  Further, the insertion port member 130 includes an exposed plate 130 a exposed on the surface side of the pedestal portion 12. The exposed plate 130a is made of, for example, a synthetic resin such as polycarbonate (PC) or ABS, and the surface thereof is subjected to a plating process such as chrome plating or silver plating. The exposed plate 130a is not limited to a synthetic resin, and may be formed integrally by die casting a metal such as zinc or zinc alloy. Even in this case, in order to improve the appearance, the surface of the exposed plate 130a may be plated.
  The exposed plate 130a is formed with a medal guide surface 130b recessed downward in an arc shape, and a slit-shaped medal slot 13 is formed on the back side of the medal guide surface 130b.
  The medal guide surface 130b is formed so as to descend from the player side toward the medal slot 13, and has a length that allows a large number of medals to stand up and be installed. Further, the inclination angle of the medal guide surface 130b is not particularly limited as long as the medal guide surface 130b is inclined with respect to the horizontal plane so that the medal slides smoothly.
  In addition, the insertion slot member 130 is provided with a medal return button 131. The medal return button 131 is arranged on the side of the medal guide surface 130b. When the medal return button 131 is pressed, medals are ejected from the medal payout opening 21 (see FIG. 2).
  On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 17, an insertion passage 132 for guiding a medal inserted from the medal insertion slot 13 to the selector 26 is provided inside the insertion slot member 130. Here, although not shown, the charging port member 130 includes a passage member made of resin, for example, on the back side of the exposed plate 130a (the front side in FIG. 17).
  Therefore, the input port member 130 forms the input passage 132 by the exposed plate 130a and the above-described passage member. In addition, in the charging port member 130 according to the present embodiment, the charging plate 132 is formed by the exposed plate 130a and the channel member. However, the present invention is not limited to this. May be formed.
  The insertion passage 132 is provided with an inclined portion 132a inclined in the radial direction of the medal (left and right direction in FIG. 17) perpendicular to the medal insertion direction (downward direction in FIG. 17). The inclined portion 132a has a configuration inclined inward in the radial direction as it goes downstream in the medal insertion direction. As a result, the insertion passage 132 gradually narrows in the left-right direction as it goes downstream from the medal insertion opening 13 in the insertion direction.
  For this reason, the medal inserted into the medal insertion slot 13 falls in the insertion passage 132 along the inclined portion 132a, so that the dropping speed is adjusted to a constant speed.
  In addition, the inclined portions 132a are provided on both sides in the left-right direction of the charging passage 132, respectively. The inclined portion 132a may be provided only on one side in the left-right direction of the charging passage 132.
  Further, the insertion passage 132 is formed with a pair of opposing surfaces 132b that oppose the front and back surfaces of the medal. Specifically, the pair of opposed surfaces 132b are formed on both the exposed plate 130a forming the input passage 132 and the above-described passage member.
  In the present embodiment, grooves 133 extending along the loading direction are formed on the facing surface 132b on the exposed plate 130a side of the pair of facing surfaces 132b at a predetermined interval in the radial direction (left-right direction in FIG. 17). A plurality are provided.
  As a result, dust, dust, and the like that have entered from the medal slot 13 accumulate in the groove 133. Therefore, dust, dust and the like do not directly contact the front and back surfaces of the medal. In addition, such a groove part 133 may be provided in both of a pair of opposing surfaces 132b, and the structure provided only in the opposing surface 132b by the side of a channel | path member may be sufficient.
  Next, with reference to FIGS. 18 and 19, a detailed configuration of the medal auxiliary storage 45 according to the present embodiment and a method for accommodating the medal auxiliary storage 45 in the cabinet 2a will be described.
