In the following description, a gaming state that is a distribution condition in which no change state is assigned to each jackpot symbol is referred to as a normal distribution condition, and a gaming state that is a distribution condition in which a change state is assigned to each jackpot symbol. This is referred to as a special distribution condition. Here, in the first embodiment, if the game state is assigned the variable state when the big win is won, the game is set so as to satisfy the special distribution condition and the variable state is provided. A state (that is, a state with no low probability variation and a state with high accuracy variation) is referred to as a special distribution state. In other words, after the big hit game satisfying the special distribution condition is completed, the special distribution state is entered. Hereinafter, the variable distribution condition for each jackpot symbol will be described in detail.
(Relationship between jackpot symbol and game state based on winning at first starting point)
When the determination result of the big hit determination based on the winning of the pachinko ball to the first start port 101 is affirmative determination, the main control CPU 60a selects one big hit symbol from a plurality of types of predetermined big hit symbols. It is set to determine. Specifically, in the first embodiment, one of four types of jackpot symbols (symbol A to symbol D) is selected based on the special symbol determining random number acquired when the pachinko ball wins the first starting port 101. One big hit design is decided. In the pachinko machine according to the first embodiment, when the determination result of the jackpot determination based on the winning of the pachinko ball to the first starting port 101 is affirmative determination, the symbol A as the jackpot symbol is selected at a rate of 20%, and 47% The symbol B is selected as the jackpot symbol at the rate of 8%, the symbol C as the jackpot symbol at the rate of 8%, and the symbol D as the jackpot symbol at the rate of 25%. Is assigned. In addition, the distribution ratio of the big hit symbol mentioned above is an example, and is not limited to this.
  In the first jackpot game corresponding to the symbol A, after the first jackpot game is finished, the symbol variation effect (first or second special diagram variation display) is executed a predetermined number of times (160 in the first embodiment). The probability change state is continuously given until the game is executed, and regardless of the game state at the time of winning the jackpot determination, the number of times of change (that is, 160 times) so that the change state is given while the probability change state continues. Is set. That is, for the symbol A, all kinds of gaming states are set as the special distribution conditions, and when the symbol A is selected, the special distribution condition is satisfied and a variable state is given after the big hit game. (Move to special distribution state). Then, the special distribution state based on the determination of the symbol A ends simultaneously with the end of the probability variation state. The first jackpot game is configured to open and close the open / close door 43 of the special winning device 40 under a predetermined open / close condition. The opening / closing conditions (first opening / closing conditions) in the first jackpot game are such that the opening / closing door 43 performs a long-time opening operation that allows a specified number of pachinko balls to be won in a plurality of round games, and in a plurality of round games. The opening / closing door 43 is set to perform a short-time opening operation in which a prescribed number of pachinko balls cannot win. Specifically, in the first embodiment, the first jackpot game is a jackpot game in which the prescribed number of rounds is set to “15”, and the opening operation is performed on the opening / closing door 43 for a long time in four round games. In addition, the opening / closing door 43 is set to perform a short-time opening operation in eleven round games, and is configured to obtain around 550 prize balls in the first big hit game.
  In the second jackpot game corresponding to the symbol B, a symbol variation effect (first or second special diagram variation display) is executed a predetermined number of times (160 in the first embodiment) after the end of the second jackpot game. While the probability change state is continuously given until it is made, it is set so that the change state is not given regardless of the gaming state at the time of winning the big hit determination. That is, for the symbol B, all kinds of gaming states are set as the normal distribution conditions, and by selecting the symbol B, the normal distribution condition is satisfied so that the variable state is not given after the big hit game. It has become. The second jackpot game is configured to open and close the open / close door 43 of the special winning device 40 under a predetermined open / close condition. The opening / closing conditions in the second jackpot game are set to the same first opening / closing conditions as in the first jackpot game described above, and in the second jackpot game, about 550 prize balls are played as in the first jackpot game. It is configured to be earned.
  In the third jackpot game corresponding to the symbol C, a symbol variation effect (first or second special diagram variation display) of a predetermined number of variations (160 in the first embodiment) is executed after the end of the third jackpot game. While the probability change state is continuously given until it is made, it is set so that the change state is not given regardless of the gaming state at the time of winning the big hit determination. That is, for the symbol C, all kinds of game states are set as the normal distribution conditions, and the symbol C is selected so that the normal distribution condition is satisfied so that no change state is given after the big hit game. It has become. The third jackpot game is configured to open and close the open / close door 43 of the special winning device 40 under a predetermined open / close condition. The opening / closing conditions (second opening / closing conditions) in the third jackpot game are set so that the opening / closing door 43 performs a short-time opening operation in which a specified number of pachinko balls cannot win in a plurality of round games. Specifically, in the first embodiment, the third jackpot game is a jackpot game in which the prescribed number of rounds is set to “15”, and in the 15 round games, the opening operation is performed for the opening / closing door 43 for a short time. It is set so as to be performed, and is configured so that around zero prize balls can be obtained in the third jackpot game.
  The fourth jackpot game corresponding to the symbol D is set so that the probability variation state and the variation state are not given after the fourth jackpot game ends. That is, for the symbol D, all kinds of game states are set as the normal distribution conditions, and the symbol D is selected so that the normal distribution condition is satisfied so that the variable state is not given after the big hit game. It has become. The fourth jackpot game is configured to open and close the open / close door 43 of the special prize-winning device 40 under predetermined open / close conditions. The opening / closing conditions in the fourth jackpot game are set to the same first opening / closing conditions as those in the first jackpot game, and in the fourth jackpot game, about 550 prize balls are collected as in the first jackpot game. It is configured to be earned.
  That is, when the determination result of the big hit determination based on the winning of the pachinko ball to the first starting port 101 is an affirmative determination, the probable change state and the short change state are determined after the corresponding big hit game is ended by determining the symbol A. By giving the predetermined number of fluctuations (160 times) and determining the symbols B and C, only the probability variation state is given only the predetermined number of changes (160 times) after the corresponding jackpot game is over. In addition, when the determination result of the jackpot determination based on the pachinko ball to the first starting port 101 is affirmative determination, a predetermined number of prize balls can be obtained by determining the symbol A, the symbol B, and the symbol D It is like that. That is, when the determination result of the big hit determination based on the pachinko ball to the first start port 101 is affirmative determination, when the symbol A is determined, the special distribution state that becomes the special distribution state after the corresponding big hit game Is set to migrate.
(Relationship between jackpot symbol and gaming status based on winning at the 2nd and 3rd starting points)
When the determination result of the big hit determination based on the winning of the pachinko ball to the second start port 102 and the third start port 31 is an affirmative determination, the main control CPU 60a includes a plurality of predetermined types of big hit symbols. Is set to determine one jackpot symbol. Specifically, in the first embodiment, five types of jackpot symbols (symbols E to E) are obtained based on the special symbol determining random numbers acquired when the pachinko balls win the second starting port 102 and the third starting port 31. It is set to determine one jackpot symbol from I). Furthermore, in the pachinko machine of Example 1, the symbol E as the big hit symbol is selected at a rate of 20%, the symbol F as the big hit symbol is selected at a rate of 30%, and the symbol as a big hit symbol at a rate of 25%. G is selected, the symbol H as a jackpot symbol is selected at a rate of 20%, and the determination value for special figure determination is assigned so that the symbol I as a jackpot symbol is selected at a rate of 5%. In addition, the distribution ratio of the big hit symbol mentioned above is an example, and is not limited to this.
  In the fifth jackpot game corresponding to the symbol E, a symbol variation effect (first or second special diagram variation display) is executed a predetermined number of times (160 in the first embodiment) after the fifth jackpot game ends. The probability change state is continuously given until the game is executed, and regardless of the game state at the time of winning the jackpot determination, the number of times of change (that is, 160 times) so that the change state is given while the probability change state continues. Is set. That is, for the symbol E, all kinds of gaming states are set as the special distribution conditions, and when the symbol E is selected, the special distribution condition is satisfied, and the variable state is given after the big hit game. (Move to special distribution state). Further, the special distribution state based on the determination of the symbol E ends at the same time as the end of the probability variation state. The fifth jackpot game is configured to open and close the open / close door 43 of the special winning device 40 under predetermined open / close conditions. The open / close condition (third open / close condition) in the fifth jackpot game is set to cause the open / close door 43 to perform a long-time opening operation in which a prescribed number of pachinko balls can be won in a plurality of round games. Specifically, in the first embodiment, the fifth jackpot game is a jackpot game in which the prescribed number of rounds is set to “15”, and the opening operation is performed on the opening / closing door 43 for a long time in the 15 round games. It is set so as to be performed, and is configured so that around 2000 prize balls can be obtained in the fifth jackpot game.
  In the sixth jackpot game corresponding to the symbol F, after the sixth jackpot game is finished, the symbol variation effect (first or second special diagram variation display) is executed a predetermined number of times (160 in the first embodiment). Probability state is continuously given until it is done. In addition, when the game state is a state with no low probability change at the time when the symbol F is selected (at the time of winning the big hit determination), it is set so that no change state is given after the end of the big hit game, If the gaming state is one of a state with low probability variation, a state without high probability variation, or a state with high probability variation short, after the big hit game is finished, the state is changed so that the variation state is given while the probability variation state continues. The short number of times (that is, 160 times) is set. That is, for the symbol F, a state with no low probability variation is set as the normal distribution condition. For the symbol F, a state with a low probability variation, a state without a high probability variation, and a state with a high probability variation are set as the special distribution conditions, and the symbol F is determined in these gaming states to be special. After the big hit game is fulfilled with the distribution condition, the variable state is given (transition to the special distribution state). Therefore, when symbol F (sixth big hit game) is selected, whether or not the variable state is given depends on the game state at the time of winning the big hit determination, and the big hit game ends. Whether or not to shift to the special distribution state later changes. Further, the special distribution state based on the determination of the symbol F is set to end simultaneously with the end of the probability variation state. The sixth jackpot game is configured to open and close the open / close door 43 of the special winning device 40 under a predetermined open / close condition. The opening / closing conditions in the sixth jackpot game are set to the same third opening / closing conditions as the fifth jackpot game described above, and in the sixth jackpot game, about 2000 prize balls are received as in the fifth jackpot game. It is configured to be earned.
  The seventh jackpot game corresponding to the symbol G is the eighth jackpot game corresponding to the symbol H, the ninth jackpot game corresponding to the symbol I is whether the game state at the time of winning the jackpot determination is a probable change state. Regardless of whether or not, after the seventh jackpot game is over, the probability variation state continues until a predetermined variation number (160 in the first embodiment) of the symbol variation effect (first or second special diagram variation display) is executed. Is granted. In addition, if the game state is the low probability change shortage state or the high probability change shortage state at the time when the symbols G to I are selected (at the time of winning the big hit determination), the shortage state is given after the big hit game is finished. On the other hand, if the gaming state is a state with low probability variation or a state with high probability variation, setting is made so that a predetermined number of times of variation is provided after the end of the big hit game Has been. That is, for the symbols G to I, the low probability variation short state and the high probability variation short state are set as the normal distribution conditions. In addition, for symbols G to I, a state with low probability variation and a state with high probability variation are set as the special distribution conditions, and the symbols G to I are determined in these gaming states, and the special vibration is determined. After the big hit game is fulfilled with the minute condition, the variable state is given (transition to the special distribution state). Therefore, when symbols G to I (seventh to ninth jackpot games) are selected, whether or not the variable state is given depends on the gaming state at the time of winning the jackpot determination. At the same time, whether or not to shift to the special distribution state after the end of the big hit game is changed.
  Here, when the symbol G is selected, the number of times of change (that is, 160 times) is set so that the variable state is given while the probability change state continues after the end of the big hit game. Is selected, after the end of the big hit game, the number of times of change is set so that the state of change is given for the number of times of change shorter than the number of times of change to which the probability change state is given. In the first embodiment, the number of changes in the case of the symbol H is set to 40 times, and the number of changes in the case of the symbol I is set to 80 times. That is, the special distribution state based on the determination of the symbol G ends at the same time as the end of the probability variation state, whereas the special distribution state based on the determination of the symbols H and I ends before the end of the probability variation state. It is like that. The seventh to ninth jackpot games are configured to open and close the open / close door 43 of the special winning device 40 under predetermined open / close conditions. The opening / closing conditions in the seventh jackpot game are set to the same third opening / closing conditions as in the fifth jackpot game, and in the seventh jackpot game, about 2000 prize balls are received as in the fifth jackpot game. It is configured to be earned.
  That is, when the determination result of the big hit determination based on the pachinko ball to the second start port 102 and the third start port 31 is affirmative determination, the probability change state after the end of the corresponding big hit game by determining the symbol E and When the variable state is given a predetermined number of times (160 times) and any of symbols F to I is determined, not only whether or not the probability variable state is given, but also normal vibration at the big hit time Whether or not a change state given after the end of the big hit game is changed depends on whether the distribution condition or the special distribution condition is satisfied.
  As described above, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the first embodiment, when the determination result of the hit determination triggered by the winning at the first start port 101 is affirmative, a maximum of around 550 prize balls can be obtained. When the big hit symbol is assigned, but the result of the hit determination with the winning at the second start port 102 and the third start port 31 is affirmative, a maximum of around 2000 winning balls Each jackpot symbol is assigned so that it can be acquired. That is, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the first embodiment, regardless of which symbol is determined as the big hit symbol, the determination result of the hit determination triggered by winning at the second starting port 102 and the third starting port 31 When the result is positive, the main control is performed so that the number of winning balls (award amount granted) is increased as compared to the case where the determination result of the hit determination triggered by winning at the first start port 101 is positive. The CPU 60a is set to determine the type of jackpot game (big hit symbol).
  In the state where the probability variation state is given but the variation state is not imparted (the state where there is no high probability variation short state), when the determination result of the hit determination triggered by the winning to the first start port 101 is affirmative, The jackpot symbol is assigned so that a shortage state is given after the end of the jackpot game at a rate of 20%, whereas the hit determination with the winning at the second start port 102 and the third start port 31 is an opportunity If the determination result is affirmative, even if the symbol F is determined, the special allocation condition is set so that the jackpot symbol is given at the rate of 50% so that a variable state is given after the big hit game ends. Is assigned. That is, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the first embodiment, in the state where there is no high-precision variation, the first start is performed when the determination result of the hit determination triggered by winning the second start port 102 and the third start port 31 is affirmative. Compared to the case where the determination result of the winning determination with the winning of the mouth 101 as an affirmation is positive, the number of winning balls that can be acquired is increased and the ratio of the change state after the end of the big hit game is increased. The control CPU 60a determines the type of jackpot game (big hit symbol).
  In addition, when the determination result of the hit determination triggered by the winning at the first start port 101 is affirmative, the ratio of shifting to the special distribution state after the end of the big hit game is the special distribution state (low probability change at the time of the big hit). The determination result of the hit determination triggered by winning at the second start port 102 and the third start port 31 is always 20% regardless of whether or not it is a short state or a state with a high probability change short state). In the case of positive, if it is not a special distribution state (a state with low probability variation or a state with high probability variation short) at the time of big hit, 20 is the same as in the case where the winning at the first start port 101 is triggered. When the big hit game ends, the game shifts to a special distribution state. Transition to the distribution state. That is, in the state of the special distribution state, the special distribution state is continued by making a big hit with the winning of the second start port 102 and the third start port 31 as a trigger, and the second start port 102 And when the determination result of the hit determination triggered by the winning at the third starting port 31 is affirmed, the winning determination result obtained when the winning at the first start port 101 is affirmed as compared with the case The main control CPU 60a determines the type of jackpot game (big hit symbol) so that the number of possible winning balls increases and the rate at which the change state is given after the big hit game ends is increased.
(Operation of Example 1)
Next, the operation of the pachinko machine 10 according to the first embodiment will be described.
  When the pachinko ball launched into the game area 20a of the game board 20 passes through the ball inlet 103 of the prize distribution device 100 disposed in the game board 20, the ball formed in the prize distribution device 100 It is guided to the branching part 135 through the inflow path and received by the first ball receiving part 140a or the second ball receiving part 140b of the sorting body 140 provided in the branching part 135. Here, when the sorting body 140 is in the first posture when the pachinko ball is guided to the branching portion 135, the pachinko ball is received by the first ball receiving portion 140a of the sorting body 140, and With the weight of the pachinko ball, the sorting body 140 rotates from the first posture to the second posture, and the pachinko ball received by the first ball receiving portion 140a is guided to the first sorting port 135a. On the other hand, when the sorting body 140 is in the second posture when the pachinko ball is guided to the branching portion 135, the pachinko ball is received by the second ball receiving portion 140b of the sorting body 140, and With the weight of the pachinko ball, the sorting body 140 rotates from the second posture to the first posture, and the pachinko ball received by the second ball receiving portion 140b is guided to the second sorting port 135b. The pachinko balls guided to the first distribution port 135a are guided toward the first start port 101 via the first winning passages 161, 165, 180, and 195 formed in the winning distribution device 100. At the same time, the pachinko balls guided to the second distribution port 135b are guided toward the second start port 102 via the second winning passage 198 formed in the winning distribution device 100.
  Here, in the winning distribution device 100, the lengths of the first winning passages 161, 165, 180, and 195 communicating with the first starting port 101 are the second winning passages 198 communicating with the second starting port 102. Since it is formed so as to be longer than the length of the passage, the pachinko ball passing through the second winning passage 198 takes the time required for the pachinko ball to pass through the first starting passage 102 to the pachinko passing through the first winning passage 161, 165, 180, 195. The time required for the ball to reach the first start port 101 can be made shorter. That is, the length of the first winning passages 161, 165, 180, 195 communicating with the first starting port 101 is made longer than the length of the second winning passage 198 communicating with the second starting port 102. Since the pachinko balls that have passed through the inflow port 103 can move to the second starting port 102 in a short time, when the pachinko balls pass through the ball inflow port 103 continuously, the first winning paths 161, 165, and 180 are obtained. , 195, the pachinko balls distributed to the second winning passage 198 can be moved to the second starting port 102 faster than the pachinko balls distributed to the first starting port 101. Thereby, the pachinko balls distributed to the first winning passages 161, 165, 180, 195 and the second winning passage 198 can be continuously awarded to the second starting port 102.
  In the prize distribution device 100 according to the first embodiment, the distribution body 140 disposed in the branching unit 135 is configured to be alternately switched between the first posture and the second posture every time the pachinko ball is received. Thus, the pachinko balls that have moved to the branching portion 135 can be distributed to the first prize passages 161, 165, 180, 195 and the second prize passage 198 at the same rate. The first winning opening 161, 165, 180, 195 (first starting opening 101) and the second winning passage 198 (second starting opening 102) are prevented from being biased and guided to the first winning opening. It becomes possible to equalize the chances of winning the pachinko balls to the 101 and the second starting port 102. Moreover, as described above, the path lengths of the first winning paths 161, 165, 180, and 195 communicating with the first starting port 101 are longer than the path length of the second winning path 198 communicating with the second starting port 102. By forming so, it is possible to achieve continuous pachinko ball winning to the second starting port 102 while equalizing the chances of winning the pachinko ball to the first starting port 101 and the second starting port 102.
  The first winning passages 161, 165, 180, and 195 are provided with a first delay passage portion 165 and a second delay passage portion 180 for reducing the moving speed of the pachinko ball. Since the passing speed of the pachinko balls passing through the first winning passages 161, 165, 180, and 195 is made slower than the passing speed of the passing pachinko balls, the first winning passages 161, 165, 180, and 195 are configured as pachinko. It takes a longer time for the ball to pass, and the frequency of consecutive winnings to the second starting port 102 can be further increased.
  Further, since the distributing body 140 is held in the first posture and the second posture in a state where the pachinko ball is not received by the magnetic force of the first magnet 148 and the second magnet 149, the pachinko machine 10 It is possible to prevent the allocating body 140 from changing its posture to the first posture and the second posture due to the vibrations. Accordingly, the pachinko balls that have passed through the ball inlet 103 are reliably and alternately guided to the first winning passages 161, 165, 180, 195 (first starting port 101) and the second winning passage 198 (second starting port 102). Thus, the chances of winning the pachinko balls to the first start port 101 and the second start port 102 can be equalized.
  In the pachinko machine 10 according to the first embodiment, the winning information (various random number information) acquired when winning at the first starting port 101 and the second starting port 102 is sent to the first starting port 101 and the second starting port 102. The game is stored in the main control RAM in the order in which the balls are won (that is, the order in which the winning information is acquired), and the main control RAM is configured to perform control related to the game such as hit determination in the order in which the winning information is stored. Yes. For this reason, when the pachinko ball wins continuously at the second starting port 102, the control based on the winning information acquired with the winning of the second starting port 102 is continuously performed. An advantageous privilege based on a winning at the start port 102 can be quickly given to the player. Furthermore, by winning at the second starting port 102, an advantageous privilege is given to the player, so that the pachinko ball moving state that has continuously passed through the ball inlet 103 of the winning distribution device 100 can be reduced. It can attract the player's interest more strongly.
  Further, the winning distribution device 100 distributes the pachinko balls that have passed through the ball inflow port 103 to the first winning passages 161, 165, 180, 195 and the second winning passage 198 according to the posture of the sorting body 140. Since it is configured as described above, even when the variable state is not given, a chance to win a pachinko ball at the second starting port 102 as the second winning port where a privilege advantageous to the player is given is secured. Can increase interest in games. In addition, in the state where the short state where the probability that the pachinko ball wins a prize becomes a high probability is not given to the third starting opening 31 as the second winning opening, the winning at the second starting opening 102 is a chance. The amount of privilege granted varies depending on the case and the winning case triggered by the winning of the first starting port 101, so that the distribution body 140 for distributing the pachinko balls to the first starting port 101 and the second starting port 102 Increase interest.
  Further, in the state in which the probability variation state is given, the big hit is made when the first start port 101 pachinko ball wins and a big hit is generated, and when the pachinko ball wins the second start port 102 and the big hit occurs. By changing the ratio of shifting to the special distribution state after the game, pachinko balls that have passed through the ball inlet 103 of the winning distribution device 100 are distributed by the distributing body 140 to the first winning paths 161, 165, 180. , 195 and the second winning path 198 can be more attracted to the player's interest. Further, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the first embodiment, since the expectation of acquiring many prize balls is increased by shifting to the special distribution state, not only whether or not the probability variation state is given, The second is likely to attract a strong interest in whether or not to shift to the minute state, and the pachinko ball that has passed through the ball inlet 103 of the winning distribution device 100 is likely to be a big hit to shift to the special distribution state. It is possible to attract a keen interest in continuously winning a prize for the start port 102.
  In addition, the game area 20a of the game board 20 is divided into a first ball flow path and a second ball flow path, and the winning distribution device 100 is disposed in the first ball flow path, and the second ball flow path is arranged in the second ball flow path. Since the start winning device 30 provided with the third starting port 31 and the gate member 47 that triggers opening and closing of the opening / closing member 33 of the start winning device 30 are arranged, the gaming state ( That is, in the special distribution state), the pachinko ball can be awarded to the third starting port 31 as a second winning port advantageous to the player by hitting the pachinko ball to the second ball flow path. As described above, the winning distribution device 100 including the first starting port 101 as the first winning port and the second starting port 102 as the second winning port is disposed in the first ball flow path, and the second By arranging the start winning device 30 provided with the third starting port 31 as a winning port in the second ball flow path, the second starting port 102 as the second winning port is provided even when the variable state is not given. When the winning state is given (special distribution state) while achieving the continuous winning of pachinko balls to the game, the game by winning the pachinko ball to the third starting port 31 as the second winning port This makes it possible to provide a pachinko machine 10 with a new gameability that has never been achieved.
  In addition, when the probability variation state is given, when the pachinko ball wins the second start port 102 and the big hit occurs compared to the case where the pachinko ball wins the first start port 101 and the big win occurs. This is set so that there is a higher possibility that the special distribution condition will be satisfied when the big hit is made. As a result, the ball flow of the winning distribution device 100 is a state where the shortage state is not given (a state where the special sort state is not given) and only the certain change state is given. It is possible to further increase the interest in the sorting body 140 that distributes the pachinko balls that have passed through the inlet 103 to the first starting port 101 and the second starting port 102.
  Next, the pachinko machine 10 according to the second embodiment will be described.

(About the ball transfer mechanism 311)
As shown in FIGS. 21 and 22, the ball transfer mechanism 311 is rotatably supported by the transfer case body 306 to transfer the pachinko balls from the ball inlet 307a toward the ball outlet 309a. 312 and connecting portions 315 a to 315 c that connect the ball transfer body 312 to the drive motor 317. The ball transfer body 312 includes a shaft 313 rotatably supported by the top plate 307 and the bottom plate 309 of the transfer case body 306, and an axis configured to rotate integrally with the shaft 313 while the shaft 313 is inserted therethrough. And a spiral projecting piece 314a formed on the outer peripheral surface of the shaft-like portion 314 and extending spirally. The pitch in the axial direction of the spiral projecting piece 314a is set to a dimension in which a pachinko ball can slide between the spiral projecting pieces 314a, and the projecting dimension of the spiral projecting piece 314a from the shaft-shaped portion 314 is as follows. The pachinko balls are set so as to be spaced apart from the projecting end portion of the spiral projecting piece 314a and the inner wall of the transfer case body 306 at an interval through which the pachinko balls cannot pass. That is, the pachinko sphere that has entered the sphere transfer passage 306b from the sphere entrance of the transfer case body 306 is restrained by the groove between the spiral projecting pieces 314a, and along the axial direction as the sphere transfer body 312 rotates. Then, it is transferred toward the ball outlet 309a. The moving speed of the pachinko sphere in the sphere transfer passage 306b depends on the rotational speed of the sphere transfer body 312 and is transferred by the sphere transfer body 312 rather than the moving speed of the pachinko sphere moved by its own weight in the sphere transfer path 306b. The moving speed of the pachinko ball to be set is set to be low. Here, the moving speed of the pachinko ball by the ball transfer body 312 does not have to be constant, and may be accelerated or decelerated.
  As shown in FIGS. 21 and 22, the connecting portions 315 a to 315 c include a drive gear 315 a attached to the drive shaft of the drive motor 317 and a driven gear 315 b attached to the ball transfer body 312 (shaft 313).

Since the movement speed of the pachinko sphere transferred by the ball feeding device 305 is set to be lower than the movement speed of the pachinko sphere due to the ball, the first winning path 161, 301, 195 passes through the ball inlet 103 continuously. It is possible to move the pachinko balls distributed to the second winning path 201 to the second starting port 102 faster than the pachinko balls distributed to the first starting port 101 move. Thereby, the pachinko balls distributed to the first winning passages 161, 301, 195 and the second winning passage 201 can be continuously awarded to the second starting port 102. Further, by changing the rotation speed of the ball transfer body 312 in the ball feeding device 305, the time required for the pachinko ball to pass through the ball transfer passage 306b of the ball feeding device 305 can be easily adjusted. Further, since the pachinko balls are transferred by the rotation of the ball transfer body 312, while the pachinko balls flow down through the first winning passages 161, 301, 195, the second winning passage 201 passes through the ball inlet 103. It is predicted whether the pachinko balls distributed to the first start port 102 will arrive first, or the pachinko balls flowing down the first winning path 161, 301, 195 will reach the first start port 101 first Predictability to improve the player's interest in the prize distribution device 300. Further, in the pachinko machine 10 provided with the winning distribution device 300 according to the second embodiment, the same operational effects as those of the pachinko machine 10 including the winning distribution device 100 according to the first embodiment can be expected.
  Next, a pachinko machine 10 according to a third embodiment will be described. The pachinko machine 10 according to the third embodiment is different from the first embodiment in that it includes a ball sensor that passes through the delay passage portion in the first winning path. In the following description, a configuration different from that of the first embodiment will be described. The same reference numerals are given to configurations having the same functions as those of the first embodiment, and detailed description thereof will be omitted.
  As shown in FIG. 23, ball sensors 401 to 405 are disposed in the delay path portions 165 and 180 in the first winning paths 161, 165, 180, and 195 according to the third embodiment. , 180 can be detected by ball sensors 401-405. Specifically, in the delay passage portions 165 and 180 of the third embodiment, one ball sensor 401 is arranged in the middle of the path of the horizontal passage portion 171, and four ball sensors 402 to 405 are arranged in the meandering passage portion 181. These ball sensors 401 to 405 can intermittently detect the passing positions of pachinko balls that pass through the delay passage portions 165 and 180. In the following description, the first to fifth ball sensors 401 to 405 may be designated and distinguished in order from the upstream side of the delay passage portions 165 and 180. It should be noted that the number of ball sensors is not limited to this. The ball sensors 401 to 405 are wired to the overall control board 65 (overall control CPU 65a), and detection signals from the respective ball sensors 401 to 405 are input to the overall control CPU 65a.
  In addition, the prize distribution device 100 according to the third embodiment is provided with passing position notifying means 410 for notifying the passing positions of pachinko balls in the first winning paths 161, 165, 180, and 195, and the ball sensors 401 to 405 are provided. Based on the detection, the player can be notified of the passing position of the pachinko ball. Here, in Example 3, an LED mounted on the second LED board 216 that illuminates the upper position of the delay passage portions 165 and 180 is employed as the passing position notification means. The passing position notifying means is not limited to this, and the pachinko ball passing position may be output as a voice by using a speaker as the passing position notifying means, and the symbol display device 17 may be used as the passing position notifying means. The passing position of the sphere may be displayed.
  As shown in FIG. 23, the second LED substrate 216 is provided with LEDs 410a to 410e as the passing position notification means corresponding to the first to fifth ball sensors 401 to 405. That is, the first LED 410a corresponding to the first sphere sensor 401, the second LED 410b corresponding to the second sphere sensor 402, the third LED 410c corresponding to the third sphere sensor 403, and the fourth LED 410d corresponding to the fourth sphere sensor 401, The fifth LED 410e corresponding to the fifth ball sensor 401 is provided on the second LED substrate 216. The first to fifth LEDs 410a to 410e are arranged in order from the upstream side of the delay passage portions 165 and 180 so as to follow the flow of pachinko balls flowing down the delay passage portions 165 and 180.
  The overall control CPU 65a then turns on the corresponding LEDs 410a to 410e of the second LED substrate 216 so that the corresponding first to fifth LEDs 410a to 410e are turned on when detection signals are input from the first to fifth ball sensors 401 to 405. Is set to control light emission. Thereby, a player can grasp | ascertain the position of the pachinko ball which passes the 1st winning path 161,165,180,195 intuitively. In this way, by executing the light-emitting effect based on the detection of the pachinko balls passing through the first winning passages 161, 165, 180, 195, the pachinko balls pass through the first winning passages 161, 165, 180, 195. A new effect using the state can be performed. The overall control CPU 65a continues lighting of the first to fifth LEDs 410a to 410e until the detection signal from the first start port sensor 211 is input, and the detection signal from the first start port sensor 211 is displayed. The first to fifth LEDs 410a to 410e are turned off by the input.
  Moreover, LED which can light-emit two or more colors is employ | adopted for 1st-5th LED410a-410e. When the pachinko ball passes through the delay passages 165 and 180 before the first start port sensor 211 detects the pachinko ball, the overall control CPU 65a changes the emission color of the corresponding LEDs 410a to 410e. It is comprised so that it may change, and it can recognize now that a several pachinko ball has passed to a player intuitively. In this way, by changing the emission color of the LEDs 410a to 410e during the passage of successive pachinko balls, diversification of effects using the passage states of the pachinko balls in the first winning paths 161, 165, 180, and 195 is achieved. be able to.

It may be. For example, the ball receiving piece can be formed in a cross shape in the sorting body of the embodiment, and can be realized by pivotally supporting the sorting body so that it can freely rotate.
(4) Even if the game balls that have passed through the ball inlet are alternately distributed to the first winning path and the second winning path by the sorting means, the gaming balls that have passed through the ball inlet are alternately distributed. It is not necessary, and a predetermined number of game balls can be sent out to one of the first winning path and the second winning path, and then a predetermined number of gaming balls can be sent out to the other of the first winning path and the second winning path. For example, only the first ball receiving piece and the second ball receiving piece are formed in the sorting body of the embodiment, and the sorting body is connected to driving means such as a motor, and the ball inlet sensor has a predetermined number of game balls. Each time it is detected, the allocating body can be easily realized by changing the posture to the first posture for guiding the game ball to the first winning passage and the second posture for guiding the game ball to the second winning passage.
(5) Further, in the state where the driving means for operating the distributing means is provided and the winning rate improvement state is given, the probability that the game ball that has passed through the ball inflow port wins the second starting port is high. The distribution unit may be driven by the driving unit. Specifically, the distribution means is such that the proportion of the game balls that have passed through the ball inflow port is distributed to the second starting port (second winning aisle) rather than the proportion that distributes the game balls to the first starting port (first winning aisle). By driving with the driving means, it is possible to increase the probability that the game ball that has passed through the ball inlet will win the second starting port.

If the ball arrival time is shortened, the passage length of the first prize passage and the passage length of the second prize passage may be the same length, and the first prize passage may be longer than the passage length of the first prize passage. You may lengthen the length of 2 prize-winning paths.
(7) In the first embodiment, a plurality of speed adjusting sections are provided in the delay path section of the first winning path, but it is sufficient that at least one speed adjusting section is provided, and the configuration of the speed adjusting section is also the first winning prize. Various conventionally known configurations can be adopted as long as the moving speed of the game ball passing through the passage can be reduced.
(8) Further, the speed of the game ball shown in the first embodiment is forced by the speed adjusting unit that reduces the speed of the game ball in the process of rolling by its own weight and the driving means shown in the second embodiment. It is also possible to combine a speed adjusting section that reduces the speed. Specifically, the ball feeding device according to the second embodiment can be arranged upstream or downstream of the circumferential rotation moving portion and the meandering passage portion according to the first embodiment.
