Description

  The present invention relates to a gaming machine such as a pachinko machine or a slot machine.

  In Patent Document 1, a plurality of color filter regions having different colors of transmitted light are formed in the windshield portion, and the windshield portion can be rotated to the case portion so that the position of the color filter region with respect to the case portion can be changed. And a gaming machine equipped with a rotating lamp device that changes the color of irradiated light emitted to the outside by changing the position of the color filter region.

  In this gaming machine, when the special winning flag is established, the effect control means controls the rotating lamp device through the rotating lamp device drive control means in order to perform a notification effect or the like for notifying that the special winning flag is established. I do. For example, when the bonus control game is won by the winning lottery means and the effect control means wins the bonus game, and the internal control lottery of the presentation control means selects the notification selection by the rotating lamp device, A color indicating whether the color of the effect command signal indicating that the notification effect is to be performed on the device and the corresponding symbol of the selected bonus game is “7” in red, “7” in blue, or “7” in yellow A designation signal is sent to the rotating lamp device drive control means. When the rotary lamp device drive control means receives the production command signal and the color designation signal from the production control means, the color of the irradiation light emitted from the rotary lamp device based on the rotational angle position of the windshield detected by the rotary encoder. Determines which color is red, blue, or yellow (color determination processing). Next, the rotating lamp device drive control means determines whether or not the color indicated by the color designation signal matches the color of the irradiation light determined by the color determination process. The rotating lamp device drive control means promptly turns on the incandescent lamp of the rotating lamp device when the color indicated by the color designation signal matches the color of the irradiation light determined by the color determination process. At the same time, the reflector of the rotating lamp device is turned in the forward direction, thereby starting the turning lighting operation of the rotating lamp device. On the other hand, if the color indicated by the color designation signal does not match the color of the irradiation light determined by the color determination process, the rotating lamp device drive control means The rotating lamp device is caused to perform a color changing operation for turning the reflecting plate in the reverse direction until the colors match. When the color indicated by the color designation signal matches the color of the irradiated light by the color changing operation, the rotating lamp device drive control means promptly turns on the incandescent bulb of the rotating lamp device and the rotating lamp device. The reflector is turned in the forward direction, thereby starting the turning lighting operation of the rotating lamp device.

  Therefore, “7”, which is the same color and different color, is set as the symbol corresponding to the bonus game, and the red “7”, blue “7”, and yellow “7”. When a bonus game corresponding to any of these is selected in the lottery, red, blue, and yellow can be selected as the color of the irradiation light. In other words, the color of the pattern “7” corresponding to the selected bonus game, in other words The color of the symbol “7” to be stopped can be notified to the player.

  More specifically, the big hit reference table 135a includes a variation pattern No. that is a game command. 1 to 64 are assigned, and the change pattern No. which is a game command is stored in the reference table 135b for lose. 65 to 127 are allocated. When the random number acquired by the special symbol random number acquisition unit 112 is a big hit random number, the variation pattern command determination unit 140 determines the variation pattern No. One pattern is selected from 1 to 64 based on the random number for the variation pattern, and the pattern is transmitted to the effect control processing unit 12a as a variation pattern command.

  Further, the variation pattern command No. assigned to the jackpot reference table 135a is changed. A part of 1 to 64 is assigned to a probable jackpot, and the rest is usually assigned to a jackpot.

  Similarly, in the case of a loss, the fluctuation pattern command determination unit 140 changes the fluctuation pattern No. One pattern is selected from 65 to 127 based on the random number for the variation pattern, and the command is transmitted to the effect control processing unit 12a. The variation pattern No. 1 to 64, the variation pattern No. Compared to 65-127, it is a variation pattern command with a long variation time of special symbols as a whole, and if an effect mode with a long variation time is displayed, the player predicts that the possibility of a big hit is high. Can be done.

  Here, in the present embodiment, the random number for the variation pattern is acquired at the timing when the game ball wins the start winning opening 37. When the game starts immediately after winning, the variation pattern command determination unit 140 determines a variation pattern command based on the variation pattern random number. Since this special prize is changing, the special symbol random number acquired based on this prize is stored as the reserved ball random number in the reserved ball random number storage unit 115 as well. Each time it is stored in the sphere random number storage unit 115, the variation pattern command determination unit 140 determines a variation pattern command based on the variation pattern random number obtained at the winning timing, and uses the variation pattern command as a prefetch command. It is transmitted to the effect control processing unit 12a. This is to perform a prefetch determination process described later.

  Further, when stored as a reserved ball random number, the acquired variation pattern random number is stored in the variation pattern random number storage unit 134 until a game based on the reserved ball random number is started. When a game based on the reserved ball random number is started, the variation pattern random number stored in the variation pattern random number storage unit 134 is read again, and the variation pattern command is determined with reference to the command reference table 135. It has come to be.

  That is, when the special symbol random number is stored as the reserved ball random number, the variation pattern command is determined twice and is transmitted to the effect control processing unit 12a each time. The first determination is the timing of winning the game ball to the start opening 37, and the variation pattern command determined here is transmitted to the effect control processing unit 12a as a prefetch command. Upon receiving this pre-read command, the effect control processing unit 12a performs a pre-read determination process, and when a predetermined condition is achieved, the hold ball display for the hold ball random number corresponding to the pre-read command is performed in the special hold ball display mode. Details of the display of the reserved ball will be described later.

  The second determination is the timing at which the game based on the reserved ball random number starts. At this timing, an official variation pattern command related to the game is determined and transmitted to the effect control processing unit 12a. That is, the first determination is only for prefetch determination processing, and the second determination is an official variation pattern command used for the game. Since the variation pattern random numbers related to one reserved ball random number are the same, the first and second variation pattern commands are basically the same, but when the actual game starts, there are four reserved ball random numbers. In such a case, the second fluctuation pattern command may be a command with a short special symbol fluctuation time.

  Here, in this embodiment, all the variation pattern Nos. That can be selected at the time of jackpot are displayed. 1 to 64, and change pattern No. selectable at the time of loss. 100 to 127 constitute a specific variation pattern command (specific command). The variation pattern No. Reference numerals 100 to 127 are losing commands for performing super reach and super super reach, which are production modes having a high probability of winning a jackpot (see FIG. 14). These variation patterns No. When 100 to 127 is selected, super reach or super super reach is displayed on the effect display device 34, and finally it is displayed as lost while scolding the player as to whether it will be a big hit.

  The breakdown of the specific variation pattern command is that the variation pattern command at the time of jackpot is No. A total of 64 from 1 to 64, No. There are a total of 28 numbers from 100 to 127. When a specific variation pattern command is selected in a certain game, it is highly likely that the special symbol random number is a big hit. Therefore, when it is determined that the game is a big hit, there is a high possibility that the reserved ball display will be a special display mode in the prefetch determination process.

  In the following description, for a portion that needs to be expressed separately from the variation pattern command related to the first determination and the variation pattern command related to the second determination, the variation pattern command related to the first determination is prefetched. The fluctuation pattern command related to the command and the second determination is referred to as a regular command.

  Next, the jackpot game control unit 160 controls to open and close the attacker device 41 by a predetermined number of rounds according to the type of jackpot. Further, the normal symbol lottery unit 170 is triggered by the fact that the game ball has passed through the through-chucker 21 and the normal symbol random number generator having the same configuration as the number of random numbers generated by the special symbol random number generator 111. The normal symbol random number acquiring unit that acquires (latches) one random number (at the timing when the detection signal from the through chucker detection sensor 46 is input to the main control processing unit 11), and the normal symbol random number acquiring unit acquires If the normal symbol is changing when the normal symbol random number acquisition unit and the normal symbol random number acquisition unit acquire random numbers, the normal symbol determination table that determines whether or not the random number is per normal symbol And a normal symbol reserved ball random number storage unit for storing the acquired random number as a normal symbol reserved ball random number. In addition, the electric tulip operation control unit 180 controls the solenoid of the electric tulip 49 to open and close based on a command won per normal symbol by the electronic lottery by the normal symbol lottery unit 170.

[Sub-control processing section]
Next, a sub control processing unit that receives various commands (commands) from the main control processing unit 11 and controls various devices will be described. An effect control processing unit 12a, a special symbol display control unit 12b, a lamp control processing unit 12c, a payout control processing unit 12e, and a normal symbol display control unit 12f constituting the sub control processing unit are provided on the back surface of the game board 3 with support members and the like. In accordance with the processing information generated by the main control processing unit 11, the effect display device 34, the speaker 20, and other effect devices (such as LED devices) are controlled. Similarly to the main control device 11, the sub-control processing unit also includes a CPU, a ROM that stores a predetermined control program, a RAM that temporarily stores generated processing information, and a RAM that deletes the stored information. Then, the CPU reads and executes various programs and data stored in the ROM, whereby predetermined processing is performed.

  As shown in FIG. 12, the effect control processing unit 12a includes, as processing units, an effect mode determining unit 210, an effect display control unit (effect display control unit) 220, a prefetch lottery permission unit (notice lottery permission unit) 230, A pre-reading effect lottery unit (notice display determining unit) 231, a flag setting unit (flag setting unit) 240, a flag erasing unit (flag erasing unit) 241, and a reserved ball display pattern determining unit 250 are provided. An effect mode storage unit 260 and a flag storage unit 270 are provided.

  The effect mode determining unit 210 determines an effect to be used in the game with reference to the jackpot effect table 260a or the lose effect table 260b stored in the effect mode storage unit 260 based on the regular command. Here, as shown in FIG. 1-No. A production mode is assigned so as to correspond to up to 64 variation pattern commands on a one-to-one basis. For example, the variation pattern No. No. 1 is “Long Reach A”. 2 is “Long Reach B”. 30 is “Super Super Reach A”, and the variation pattern No. 64 is assigned “Premier Reach C”. These production modes all include reach (the production mode in which the other design symbols are all stopped at the same design leaving one production design that is fluctuating among a plurality of production designs) It is a mode in which a long-time production is performed as compared to a production that does not include.

  As shown in FIG. 65-No. The production mode is assigned so as to correspond to the variation pattern commands up to 127 on a one-to-one basis. For example, the variation pattern No. 65, “No reach A” indicates a change pattern No. 66, “No reach B” indicates a change pattern No. 80, “Normal reach A” is the change pattern No. No. 85 is “Long Reach A”. 127 is assigned “super super reach C”. As described above, the loss production table 260b includes a lot of productions without reach.

  Reach modes include single reach and double reach. Single reach means that, on one straight line (line), there is one effect symbol that is changing among a plurality of effect symbols, all other effect symbols stop at the same symbol, and such lines are It is an effect mode in a state that does not exist. Double reach means that, in one line, one changing effect symbol is left among a plurality of effect symbols, all other effect symbols stop at the same symbol, and the one changing effect symbol is included. In other lines, it is an effect mode in which all other effect symbols different from the other effect symbols are stopped at the same symbol. The reach mode (single reach or double reach) is determined according to the variation pattern No.

  The effect mode determination unit 210 determines a stop symbol (determined symbol) after fluctuation of all effect symbols by electronic lottery. Specifically, a random number is acquired, and based on the acquired random number, a stop symbol is determined with reference to a stop symbol table (not shown) stored in the storage unit. As the stop symbol table, a normal jackpot reference table, a probability variation jackpot reference table, and a lost reference table are set, and the reference table is selected according to the received regular command. A plurality of normal symbols representing normal jackpots are set as stop symbols in the reference table for normal jackpots, and a plurality of probability variation symbols representing probability variation jackpots are set as stop symbols in the reference table for probability variation jackpots. The normal symbol is a symbol displayed in the first color (blue) (for example, even numbers “0”, “2”, “4”, “6”, “8” displayed in blue), The probability variation design is a design displayed in the second color (red) (for example, odd numbers “1”, “3”, “5”, “7”, “9” displayed in red).

  The effect of double reach is set so that the normal symbol is in the reach state on one line and the probability variation symbol is in the reach state on the other line. In the case of a variation, the last production symbol is stopped so as to be aligned with the normal symbol in the case of a normal jackpot, and is stopped so as to be aligned with a probable variation in the case of a promiscuous jackpot, and is different from the already stopped symbol in the case of a loss. Stop at stage design. Therefore, when the double reach is displayed, the player shows a great deal of interest regarding whether the bonus game is a normal jackpot or a probable bonus jackpot, in addition to whether or not all the hallmarks are complete when the last stage design is stopped. In accordance with the player's interest, in the double reach production mode, as will be described later, a normal big hit ramp turning effect is executed at a normal big hit, and a probable big hit ramp turning effect is executed at a probable big hit. At the time of losing, a ramp turning effect for losing is executed.

Rotate continuously.

  When the result of the electronic lottery relating to the special symbol is a probable big hit, and the double reach is displayed on the effect display device 34, the lamp unit 61 executes the ramp turning effect according to the probable big win effect pattern for double reach. That is, at the timing when the effect design double reach is displayed, the lamp cover 62 rotates to the neutral position and pauses, and the LED 69 is lit. During the last effect design change, the boundary 92 has a plurality of predetermined rotation ranges. The lamp cover 62 rotates in the forward / reverse direction so as to reciprocate twice, and the reflector 65 rotates in the forward / reverse direction in synchronization with the lamp cover 62 so that the reflecting surface 81a reciprocates the second predetermined rotation range a plurality of times. The lamp cover 62 is rotated and stopped at the timing at which the probable symbols are stopped and displayed together until the second rotation position where the red region 91 faces the front side, and the reflector 65 is continuously rotated in one direction.

  When the result of the electronic lottery concerning the special symbol is a loss and the double reach is displayed on the effect display device 34, the lamp unit 61 executes the lamp turning effect according to the double reach loss effect pattern. That is, at the timing when the effect design double reach is displayed, the lamp cover 62 rotates to the neutral position and pauses, and the LED 69 is lit. During the last effect design change, the boundary 92 has a plurality of predetermined rotation ranges. The lamp cover 62 rotates in the forward / reverse direction so as to reciprocate twice, and the reflector 65 rotates in the forward / reverse direction in synchronization with the lamp cover 62 so that the reflecting surface 81a reciprocates the second predetermined rotation range a plurality of times. At the timing when the effect symbol is stopped and displayed, the lamp cover 62 is stopped at the neutral position, the reflector 65 is stopped, and the LED 69 is turned off.

  When the result of the electronic lottery relating to the special symbol is a normal jackpot, and the single reach is displayed on the effect display device 34, the lamp unit 61 executes the lamp turning effect according to the single reach normal jackpot effect pattern. That is, at the timing when the symbols are normally displayed and stopped, the LED 69 is turned on, the lamp cover 62 is rotated to the first rotation position where the blue region 90 faces the front side, and the reflector 65 is continuously moved in one direction. Rotate to.

  When the result of the electronic lottery concerning the special symbol is a probability variation jackpot and the single reach is displayed on the effect display device 34, the lamp unit 61 executes the lamp turning effect according to the single reach probability variation jackpot effect pattern. That is, the LED 69 is turned on at the timing when the probability variation symbols are stopped and displayed, the lamp cover 62 is rotated to the second rotation position where the red region 91 faces the front side, and the reflector 65 is continuously moved in one direction. Rotate to.

  As described above, according to the present embodiment, when the determination result of the special symbol lottery unit 110 is a normal jackpot that is associated with blue, the blue region 90 is in front at the timing when the normal symbols are aligned and stopped. The lamp cover 62 rotates and stops to the first rotation position facing the side (see FIG. 16B), and the reflector 65 continuously rotates in one direction with the LED 69 turned on. Further, when the determination result of the special symbol lottery unit 110 is a probability variation big hit associated with red, the lamp cover 62 reaches the second rotation position where the red region 91 faces the front side at the timing when the probability variation symbols are aligned and stopped. Rotates and stops (see FIG. 16C), and the reflector 65 continuously rotates in one direction with the LED 69 lit.

  Therefore, at the time of winning the jackpot, it is possible to perform a light-emitting effect with the emission color corresponding to the mode of the jackpot.

  When the determination result of the special symbol lottery unit 110 is a normal jackpot and the lamp control process 12c selects the double reach normal jackpot effect pattern, the lamp cover 62 has a boundary 92 as shown in FIG. After temporarily stopping at the neutral position facing the center of the front side of the gaming machine main body and rotating in the forward and reverse directions so that the boundary 92 reciprocates a predetermined rotation range a plurality of times, it is colored in blue as shown in FIG. The 1st area | region 90 which was made rotates to the 1st rotation position which faces the front side of a game machine main body, and stops. When the determination result of the special symbol lottery unit 110 is a probability variation jackpot and the lamp control process 12c selects a probability variation jackpot effect pattern for double reach, the lamp cover 62 is temporarily stopped at the neutral position as shown in FIG. Then, after the boundary 92 rotates in the forward and reverse directions so as to reciprocate the predetermined rotation range a plurality of times, as shown in FIG. 16C, the second region 90 colored in red is located on the front side of the gaming machine body. Rotate to the first rotation position facing and stop. When the determination result of the special symbol lottery unit 110 is a loss and the lamp control process 12c selects the double reach loss effect pattern, the lamp cover 62 is temporarily stopped at the neutral position as shown in FIG. Then, after the boundary 92 rotates in the forward / reverse direction so as to reciprocate the predetermined rotation range a plurality of times, the boundary 92 returns to the neutral position and stops.

  Therefore, the player can recognize the determination result (normal jackpot, probability variation jackpot or loss) of the special symbol lottery unit 110 based on the stop position (first rotation position, second rotation position or neutral position) of the lamp cover 62. it can.

  In addition, the player cannot recognize whether the determination result is a normal big hit, a probable big hit or a loss while the boundary 92 is reciprocating the predetermined rotation range. Meanwhile, the player's interest can be attracted to the behavior of the lamp cover 62, and the effect until the lottery result is notified can be improved by the drive control of the lamp cover 62.

  Further, while the boundary 62 reciprocates the predetermined rotation range a plurality of times, the LED 69 is lit, and the reflecting surface 81a of the reflector 65 reciprocates the second predetermined rotation range a plurality of times. A gorgeous light emission effect can be performed, and the player's interest can be further attracted.

  Note that the light emission control of the LED 69 is not limited to the above, and can be arbitrarily set. For example, the LED 69 may be turned off or blinked while the boundary 62 reciprocates a predetermined rotation range a plurality of times.

  Further, a predetermined rotation range in which the boundary 92 of the lamp cover 62 reciprocates and a second predetermined rotation range in which the reflecting surface 81a of the reflector 65 reciprocates may be set in addition to the above. For example, the second predetermined range may be set in a state where the reflection surface 81a faces the back side of the gaming machine body (see FIG. 17A) or may be set in a state where the reflection surface 81a faces in the lateral direction (FIG. 17). (See (b) and (c)).

  Moreover, the aspect of the reflector 65 at the time of big hit can be set arbitrarily, for example, as shown to Fig.18 (a), (b), the reflector 65 in the position where the reflective surface 81a faces the back surface side of a game machine main body. May be stopped.

  Moreover, the stop position of the lamp cover 62 at the time of a loss can be set arbitrarily, for example, you may stop the reflector 65 in the position where the reflective surface 81a faces the back surface side of a game machine main body.

  In addition, the execution of the ramp turning effect according to the effect pattern for double reach is not limited to the time of double reach. For example, after all the effect symbols stop at the normal symbol, all symbols start to re-variate simultaneously. Then, when a re-lottery effect is executed that stops in a state where the normal symbols or the probability variation symbols are aligned, the re-lottery effect may be executed.

  In addition, the ramp turning effect was executed corresponding to the normal jackpot and the probable big hit respectively. It is possible to make the ramp turning effect correspond to various determination results of the means.

  Further, at the neutral position of the lamp cover 62, the boundary 92 only needs to face the front side of the gaming machine main body, and does not necessarily face the center of the front side of the gaming main body.

  In addition to the first region and the second region, the lamp cover may have a region colored in another color, or may have a colorless and transparent region.

  As mentioned above, although the embodiment to which the invention made by the present inventor is applied has been described, the present invention is not limited by the discussion and the drawings that form part of the disclosure of the present invention according to this embodiment. That is, it should be added that other embodiments, examples, operation techniques, and the like made by those skilled in the art based on this embodiment are all included in the scope of the present invention.
