As shown in FIG. 16, the rotating gear member 121 is formed in a disk shape having a predetermined thickness (width) in the axial direction, and a support shaft 121b inserted through a shaft hole 121a penetrating in the front-rear direction. And is rotatably supported by the gear mechanism 120 (installation case 111). The rotating gear member 121 is connected to the driven gear 117 so as to be connected to the first drive motor 115, and the operating gear portion 123 is engaged (engaged) with the rack portion 105. Each is formed, and is configured to move the rack portion 105 up and down under meshing (under engagement) with the operating gear portion 123 by rotating the rotating gear member 121 as the first driving motor 115 is driven. ing. Here, in the embodiment, the connecting gear portion 122 is formed over the entire outer peripheral surface of the rotating gear member 121, and the connecting gear portion 122 is biased in the axial direction of the rotating gear member 121. In addition, the rack portion 105 meshes with a part (front side in the embodiment). In other words, a region that meshes with the rack portion 105 in the connecting gear portion 122 functions as the operating gear portion 123.

  Here, the axial width of the connecting gear portion 122 is configured to substantially coincide with the axial width of the driven gear 117 meshing with the connecting gear portion 122, so that the connecting gear portion 122 and the driven gear 117 are always in contact with each other. The gears mesh with each other, and the rotary gear member 121 can be rotated 360 ° as the first drive motor 115 is driven. The rotating gear member 121 is formed with a thickness larger than the front-rear width of the rack portion 105. Further, the rotation gear member 121 has a part of the rotation gear member 121 (a part of the operation gear part 123) through a gear opening 112a (see FIG. 14) opened on the left side surface of the mechanism housing part 112. The mechanism housing portion 112 is configured to be exposed to the outside, and an operation gear portion 123 facing the gear opening portion 112 a meshes with the rack portion 105.

  As shown in FIG. 16, the rotating gear member 121 has an arcuate portion (non-meshing) that is disengaged from the rack portion 105 in the circumferential direction aligned with the gear teeth arrangement direction in the operating gear portion 123. Part) 124 is formed. That is, on the outer peripheral surface of the rotating gear member 121, a region in which gear teeth are not formed over a predetermined range in the circumferential direction on a part (front side in the embodiment) that is offset in the axial direction of the rotating gear member 121. The region where the gear teeth are not formed is an arcuate portion 124. Here, the arc-shaped portion 124 of the embodiment is formed over a range of the central angle of the rotating gear member 121 of about 120 °. Therefore, in the rotary gear member 121 of the embodiment, a tooth row having a central angle of about 240 ° arranged on the same circumferential surface as the arc-shaped portion 124 functions as the operating gear portion 123.

  That is, when the intersection point between the horizontal line passing through the support shaft 121b of the rotating gear member 121 and the vertical movement locus of the rack portion 105 is the meshing position, While the operating gear portion 123 and the rack portion 105 are engaged with each other, the arcuate portion 124 faces the engaging position as the rotating gear member 121 rotates, so that the operating gear portion 123 and the rack portion 105 The disengaged state is released when the mesh is released. Then, when the operating gear portion 123 and the rack portion 105 are engaged, the rotating gear member 121 is rotated in the clockwise direction of FIG. 4 and FIG. While the rack portion 105 (first movable body 50) moves upward, the rotating gear member 121 is rotated in the counterclockwise direction (hereinafter referred to as the second rotating direction) in FIGS. 4 and 16A. The rack part 105 (first movable body 50) moves downward. That is, the first movable body 50 is configured to reciprocate up and down by changing the rotation direction of the rotating gear member 121. As the rotating gear member 121 rotates, the portion facing the meshing position is switched from the operating gear portion 123 to the arc-shaped portion 124, so that the engagement with the rack portion 105 is released and the first movable body 50 is released. Falls to the second position due to its own weight. Thus, the rotary gear member 121 of the embodiment functions as a switching unit that switches the operating gear portion 123 and the rack portion 105 from the engaged state to the disengaged state. In the following, when the rotating gear member 121 is rotated in the first rotation direction, the end portion of the operating gear portion 123 that is disengaged from the rack portion 105 is referred to as a first switching end portion 123a. The end portion of the operating gear portion 123 that switches from the disengaged state with the portion 105 to the engaged state is referred to as a second switching end portion 123b.

  Here, as shown in FIGS. 4 and 17, when the first movable body 50 is in the first position, the first switching end 123 a of the operating gear portion 123 is on the second rotational direction side from the meshing position. The operation gear portion 123 and the rack portion 105 are configured to be positioned and mesh with each other. That is, in a state where the first movable body 50 is in the first position, the rotating gear member 121 is rotated in the first rotating direction and the second rotating direction so that the operating gear portion 123 and the rack portion 105 are engaged with each other. The first movable body 50 (rack portion 105) is moved up and down (see FIG. 18). On the other hand, when the rotating gear member 121 is rotated so that the first switching end portion 123a of the operating gear portion 123 moves to the first rotation direction side beyond the meshing position (see FIG. 19), the operating gear portion 123 and the rack The engagement with the part 105 is released, and the first movable body 50 (rack part 105) falls (moves downward) by its own weight (see FIG. 20).

  Further, as shown in FIG. 20, in the state where the first movable body 50 is located at the second position, the upper end portion of the rack portion 105 is configured to face the meshing position. Accordingly, in a state where the first movable body 50 is in the second position, the second switching end 123b of the operating gear portion 123 arrives at the meshing position as the rotating gear member 121 rotates in the first rotating direction. As a result, the operating gear portion 123 and the rack portion 105 are engaged again, and the first movable body 50 is moved upward. That is, by continuously rotating the rotary gear member 121 in the first rotation direction, the first movable body 50 falls from the first position to the second position, and the first movable body from the second position to the first position. 50 return can be repeated.

  As shown in FIG. 21, the front surface of the rotating gear member 121 protrudes forward to the front side of the arc-shaped portion 124 that is spaced forward from the second switching end 123b of the operating gear portion 123 in the first rotational direction. A locking portion 125 is formed. The locking portion 125 is formed so as to abut from below the engagement protrusion 107 provided on the first movable body 50 (rack portion 105) in a state where the first movable body 50 is in the second position. ing. That is, in a state where the first movable body 50 is in the second position, the second switching end 123b of the operating gear portion 123 is moved from the arcuate portion 124 with the rotation of the rotary gear member 121 in the first rotation direction. Immediately before the interlocking gear portion 122 and the rack portion 105 mesh with each other at the meshing position, the locking portion 125 comes into contact with the engaging protrusion 107 from below (see FIG. 21), and the interlocking gear portion 122 is engaged. The rack portion 105 is lifted while being disengaged from the rack portion 105. When the rack portion 105 is lifted by the locking portion 125 and the second switching end portion 123b of the operating gear portion 123 arrives at the meshing position, the linkage gear portion 122 and the rack portion 105 mesh. It is supposed to be. That is, the first movable body 50 (rack portion 105) dropped by its own weight and the linkage gear portion 122 are always constant by lifting the rack portion 105 immediately before the linkage gear portion 122 and the rack portion 105 are engaged with each other. Thus, the connecting gear portion 122 that rotates and the rack portion 105 that moves linearly mesh smoothly with each other without being caught.

  Further, as shown in FIGS. 17 to 21, a rotation restricting protrusion 126 that protrudes forward is formed on the front surface of the rotating gear member 121 at a position spaced apart from the locking portion 125 in the circumferential direction. . The rotation restricting projection 126 is detachably engaged with a stopper 130 provided on the installation case 111 (mechanism housing portion 112), and the rotation of the rotating gear member 121 is restricted with the engagement with the stopper 130. Configured to do. Here, the stopper 130 is in a restricting position where it can be engaged with the rotation restricting protrusion 126 and an allowable position where the engagement of the rotation restricting protrusion 126 is released and the rotation of the rotating gear member 121 is allowed. It is comprised so that it can displace and is urged | biased toward the permissible position by the urging | biasing of the urging member. The stopper 130 is pivotally supported by the mechanism accommodating portion 112 above the rotating gear member 121, and a torsion spring is employed as a biasing member.

  The stopper 130 includes a regulating arm 130b extending from the pivotal support portion 130a pivotally supported by the installation case 111 (mechanism housing portion 112) to the rotating gear member 121 side, and the regulating arm 130b is the rotating gear member. It faces the movement locus of the rotation restricting projection 126 provided at 121. When the rotation restricting protrusion 126 comes into contact with the restricting arm 130b of the stopper 130 as the rotating gear member 121 rotates in the first rotation direction, the stopper 130 resists the urging of the urging member. Is displaced from the restricting position to the permitting position to allow the rotation of the rotating gear member 121, while the rotation restricting projection 126 is restricted by the stopper 130 as the rotating gear member 121 rotates in the second rotation direction. When contacting the arm 130b, the rotation of the rotating gear member 121 is restricted by the stopper 130. Here, in the state where the first movable body 50 is in the first position, as shown in FIG. 17, the restriction arm 130 b of the stopper 130 is located on the left side (second rotation direction side) of the rotation restriction protrusion 126. The rotating gear member 121 can be rotated in the second rotation direction. Here, the restricting arm 130b of the stopper 130 has a protruding end portion that is more than the line connecting the pivotal support portion 130a and the support shaft 121b of the rotating gear member 121 when the stopper 130 is in the restricting position. It is comprised so that it may be located in the 1st rotation direction.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 20, the restriction arm 130b of the stopper 130 has a left end surface (end surface on the second rotational direction side) of the rotation restriction projection 126 in a state where the arcuate portion 124 is located at the meshing position. It is comprised so that it may contact | abut. That is, the first switching end 123a is not moved to the meshing position with the rotation of the rotating gear member 121 in the second rotation direction. This prevents the first switching end 123a of the gear portion 122 from meshing with the rack portion 105 in a state where the first movable body 50 is in the second position, and the first movable body 50 is moved to the first position. A load that moves further downward than the second position does not act. More specifically, the restriction arm 130b of the stopper 130 is subjected to rotation restriction at the timing when the engagement between the rack part 105 and the connecting gear part 122 is released as the rotation gear member 121 rotates in the first rotation direction. The rotation of the rotating gear member 121 in the second rotation direction is restricted by engaging with the protrusion 126.

  Further, the restriction arm 130 b of the stopper 130 is adapted to engage with the locking portion 125 as the rotation gear member 121 rotates in the second rotation direction, and is similar to the rotation restriction protrusion 126. In addition, the rotation gear member 121 is configured to be restricted from rotating in the second rotation direction by engagement with the locking portion 125 (see FIG. 18). Accordingly, when the rotary gear member 121 is rotated in the second rotation direction by driving the first drive motor 115, a lower limit position at which the first movable body 50 can move downward is defined. Yes. Further, the stopper 130 is formed with an operation piece 130c extending from the pivotal support portion 130a to the radially outer side (left side in the embodiment). An end of the operation piece 130c is configured to face the outside of the case through an operation port 112b formed in the installation case 111 (mechanism housing portion 112). That is, by rotating the operation piece 130c through the operation port 112b, the stopper 130 is displaced from the restricting position toward the allowable position against the urging force of the urging member, and the rotation restricting protrusion is performed. The engagement of the portion 126 can be forcibly released.

(Operation of Example)
Next, the operation of the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment will be described.

  When a player rotates the operation handle 16 provided on the front surface side of the middle frame 12, a game area in which pachinko balls launched from the ball striking device are defined by guide rails 21 provided on the game board 20 It is driven into 20a and flows down in the game area 20a while changing the flow down direction by contacting a game nail or the like. Then, the pachinko ball flowing down the game area 20a wins the start winning opening of the start winning device 23, whereby the symbol change effect on the symbol display device 18 is started. As a result of the symbol change effect, the symbol display device When a symbol is displayed in a predetermined symbol combination in 18, a special game (big hit, etc.) advantageous to the player is generated, and a special prize provided on the game board 20 according to the symbol combination in which the special game is generated. The device 24 is opened, and a big hit effect is performed in the symbol display device 18. Then, at an appropriate timing at which the symbol change effect and the big hit effect are performed on the symbol display device 18, a predetermined control from the effect control device to each of the first drive motor 115 and the second drive motor 83 of the movable effect device 40 is performed. When the drive signal is output based on the control condition, the first movable body 50 moves up and down, or the second movable bodies 75 and 77 rotate, so that an operation effect by the movable body is executed. . In addition, at an appropriate timing at which a symbol variation effect or a jackpot effect is performed in the symbol display device 18, the effect control device makes a predetermined control condition for the first LED board 65 of the movable effect device 40 and the LED 65a of the second LED board. Based on the output of the light emission signal, the light emission effect by the first movable body 50 (light emission effect unit 70) and the second movable bodies 75 and 77 is executed.

  In a state in which the first movable body 50 of the movable effect device 40 is located at the first position, the first movable body is configured to extend in the left-right direction along the upper edge of the display opening 30c of the installation member 30. 50 is held. At this time, the rotary gear member 121 that moves the first movable body 50 up and down is engaged with the rack portion 105 of the first movable body 50 by the second switching end 123b of the operating gear portion 123 engaging the first movable body 50. 1 The movable body 50 is prevented from moving by its own weight. That is, the load of the first movable body 50 according to the embodiment is supported on the right end portion side of the first movable body 50 by meshing between the rack portion 105 and the operating gear portion 123 of the rotating gear member 121. When the first movable body 50 is moved up and down, there is a possibility that the amount of movement slightly shifts at the left and right ends of the first movable body 50.

  Here, in the embodiment, the left guide portion 42 that guides the left end portion of the first movable body 50 is connected to the first movable body 50 so that the connection slider 45 can be inclined relative to the left and right. For this reason, even when the movement amount of the left and right end portions shifts when the first movable body 50 is moved up and down, the left connecting slider 45 is inclined to the left and right relative to the first movable body 50. Since the deviation is absorbed, the first movable body 50 can be smoothly moved up and down. Further, the right guide portion 41 that guides the right end portion of the first movable body 50 to which the driving force of the first drive motor 115 is directly transmitted is in a state in which the connecting slider 45 cannot move relative to the first movable body 50. Therefore, the first movable body 50 that moves up and down can be smoothly moved up and down without impairing the stability. Further, the connecting slider 45 of the left guide portion 42 that guides the left end portion of the first movable body 50 is connected to the first movable body 50 so as to be movable relative to the left and right, and the left guide portion 42 is connected. Even when the left and right guide portions 41 and 42 are not attached in a precisely parallel state by increasing the degree of freedom of relative posture change between the slider 45 and the base body 51 (first movable body 50), The first movable body 50 can be moved up and down smoothly without being subjected to an excessive load because it is difficult to be caught when the first movable body 50 moves downward, and the burden on design and manufacturing can be reduced. Occurrence can be reduced.

  Further, in the state where the first movable body 50 is located at the first position, the rotation restricting projection 126 of the rotating gear member 121 comes into contact with the restricting arm 130b of the stopper 130 from the right side. The rotating gear member 121 can be rotated in either the first rotation direction or the second rotation direction. Then, the first drive motor 115 is driven so that the rotary gear member 121 rotates in the second rotation direction in a state where the first movable body 50 is in the first position, whereby the operation gear of the rotary gear member 121 is driven. The rack part 105 meshing with the part 123 descends and the first movable body 50 moves downward. On the other hand, by driving the first drive motor 115 so that the rotating gear member 121 rotates in the first rotating direction, the rack portion 105 that meshes with the operating gear portion 123 of the rotating gear member 121 is raised to be first movable. The body 50 moves upward. Thus, in the embodiment, the first movable body 50 can be reciprocated up and down by changing the rotation direction of the rotation gear member 121 to the first rotation direction and the second rotation direction. Can be increased. Further, the first movable body 50 that is formed longer than the left and right opening widths of the display opening 30c of the installation member 30 and extends to the left and right across the display window 25a of the frame-shaped decorative body 25 is vertically moved. By moving, powerful moving effects can be executed.

  When the first movable body 50 is moved upward beyond the first position when the first drive motor 115 is driven so that the rotating gear member 121 rotates in the first rotation direction, On the other hand, the arcuate portion 124 arrives at the meshing position where the operating gear portion 123 meshes, and the meshing between the operating gear portion 123 and the rack portion 105 is released. Thereby, since the restriction | limiting of the downward movement of the said 1st movable body 50 is cancelled | released, this 1st movable body 50 falls with dead weight from a 1st position. As described above, in the movable effect device 40 according to the embodiment, the first movable body 50 is dropped by its own weight by releasing the meshing of the operating gear portion 123 and the rack portion 105. It is possible to perform a moving effect with impact that the body 50 moves quickly from the first position to the second position. At this time, since it is not necessary to drive and control the first drive motor 115 in order to quickly move the first movable body 50 downward, the drive control of the first drive motor 115 can be simplified, and control load and product cost can be reduced. Can contribute to the reduction of Further, the operating gear portion 123 and the rack portion 105 can be switched from the engaged state to the disengaged state simply by rotating the rotating gear member 121. That is, the first movable body 50 can be arbitrarily moved up and down or the first movable body 50 can be dropped simply by rotating the rotary gear member 121, thereby simplifying the structure of the movable effect device 40. obtain. In addition, since the first movable body 50 can be operated by only one first drive motor 115 that rotates the rotating gear member 121, the cost can be reduced.

  Further, when the first movable body 50 falling from the first position approaches the second position, the left and right receiving portions 58 provided on the first movable body 50 (base body 51) are disposed on the installation member 30. Since the support head 38 of the damper member 35 is in contact with the first movable body 50 so as to stop at the second position while buffering the drop impact of the first movable body 50, the first movable body 50 that is dropped by its own weight is damaged. Can be effectively prevented. Here, since the damper member 35 is brought into contact with the left and right ends of the first movable body 50 at substantially the same timing, the first movable body 50 can be stably stopped in a substantially horizontal posture. . In addition, since the receiving portion 58 that contacts the damper member 35 is provided on the base body 51 of the first movable body 50, the movable body decoration portion 60 provided on the front side of the base body 51 is damaged or squeezed. Can be prevented. Further, the metal base body 51 is bent to form the receiving portion 58, and a concave portion is provided in the bent portion of the receiving portion 58 to increase the rigidity. Accordingly, the receiving portion 58 can be effectively prevented from being deformed around the bent portion, and can be buffered by the damper member 35 when the first movable body 50 is dropped.

  Here, in the movable effect device 40 of the embodiment, a rack portion 105 is provided on the right end portion side of the first movable body 50 and on the left end portion side opposite to the rack portion 105 in the first movable body 50. A second drive motor 83 is provided. This stabilizes the left and right weight balance of the first movable body 50 that is long to the left and right, so that the first movable body 50 does not tilt when the rack portion 105 and the operating gear portion 123 are disengaged. The first movable body 50 can be dropped in a substantially parallel posture. The movable body decoration portion 60 is provided in the first movable body 50 in a substantially bilaterally symmetric form, whereby the left and right weight balance of the first movable body 50 is stabilized and the first movable body 50 is tilted. It can be dropped with a stable posture.

  Next, a case where the first movable body 50 that has dropped to the second position is moved upward to the first position will be described. When the first movable body 50 is dropped and moved to the second position, the arc-shaped portion 124 of the rotating gear member 121 is located at the meshing position as described above, and the rack portion 105, the operating gear portion 123, Has been released. In this state, when the first drive motor 115 is driven and the rotary gear member 121 rotates in the first rotation direction, the first switching end 123a of the operating gear portion 123 in the rotary gear member 121 moves to the meshing position. Thus, the operating gear portion 123 meshes with the upper portion of the rack portion 105 facing the meshing position, whereby the first movable body 50 can be moved upward to the first position. As described above, in the movable effect device 40 of the embodiment, the first movable body 50 that has fallen to the second position can be moved upward. Therefore, the first movable body 50 is again raised to the first position and the first movable body 50 is moved. An effect of dropping the body 50 can be performed. And since there is no separate mechanism for returning the first movable body 50 that has fallen to the second position to the first position, it is only necessary to rotate the rotary gear member 121 in the first rotation direction. 40 structures can be simplified and costs can be reduced

  Further, when the rotary gear member 121 is rotated in the first rotation direction, the rotary gear member 121 is provided before the first switching end 123a of the operating gear portion 123 moves to the meshing position. The latching portion 125 abuts against the engaging protrusion 107 of the rack portion 105 from below, the rack portion 105 is pushed upward, and the first switching end of the operating gear portion 123 is pushed in a state where the rack portion 105 is pushed up. The portion 123a is configured to move to the meshing position and mesh with the rack portion 105. That is, when the first movable body 50 is dropped to the second position by its own weight, the first movable body 50 is not always stopped and held at a certain height position. If the first switching end portion 123a of the operating gear portion 123 is moved to the engaging position and directly engaged with the rack portion 105, the operating gear portion 123 and the rack portion 105 may not be properly engaged with each other, and a large load may be applied to both members. There is. Therefore, as in the embodiment, the rack portion 105 is pushed upward before the first switching end portion 123a of the actuation gear portion 123 moves to the meshing position, so that the actuation gear portion 123 and the rack portion 105 are always moved. It is possible to correct the positional relationship so that the working gear portion 123 can be smoothly meshed with the rack portion 105 and to prevent the working gear portion 123 and the rack portion 105 from being overloaded. Is possible.

  By the way, when the first movable body 50 is in the second position, the rotary gear member 121 is rotated in the second rotation direction, and the second switching end 123b of the operating gear portion 123 is moved to the meshing position. When meshed with the rack portion 105, the rack portion 105 is pushed down so as not to move. Therefore, in the embodiment, when the rotating gear member 121 is rotated in the second rotation direction, the rotating gear member 121 is moved before the second switching end portion 123b of the operating gear portion 123 moves to the meshing position. Since the rotation restricting protrusion 126 provided on the contact member abuts on the restricting arm 130b of the stopper 130 to prevent the rotation gear member 121 from rotating in the second rotation direction, the first movable member in the second position is provided. The second switching end portion 123b of the operating gear portion 123 does not mesh with the rack portion 105 of the body 50, and the first movable body 50 and the rack portion 105 can be prevented from being damaged.

  Next, a case where a movable effect and a light emission effect are performed by the second movable bodies 75 and 77 will be described. When the second drive motor 83 is driven, the left second movable body 75 rotates integrally with the rotation shaft 64, and the right second movable body 77 rotates as the rotation shaft 64 rotates. As described above, in the embodiment, the left and right second movable bodies 75 and 77 are connected by the single rotation shaft 64 so as to rotate integrally. It can be rotated by one drive source, and the number of parts can be reduced to reduce the cost. Then, the first movable body is rotated by rotating the left and right second movable bodies 75 and 77 in accordance with the timing of moving the first movable body 50 up and down and the timing of dropping the first movable body 50 from the first position. Since various movable effects by the 50 and the second movable bodies 75 and 77 can be provided, the interest of the game can be further enhanced.

  Further, when the left and right light emitting areas of the first LED substrate 65 inserted in the left and right second movable bodies 75 and 77 emit light, light is irradiated forward from both light emitting areas, and the left and right second movable bodies are illuminated. 75 and 77 are brightened from the inside. As a result, various effects can be obtained by combining the operation effect by the rotation of the left and right second movable bodies 75 and 77 and the light emission effect by the light emission of the second movable bodies 75 and 77. At this time, the first LED board 65 is disposed so as to cover the second installation part 63 (base part 61) that supports the second movable bodies 75 and 77 on the left and right sides, and around the second installation part 63. Since the second movable bodies 75 and 77 are configured to rotate, the first LED board 65 does not rotate together with the second movable bodies 75 and 77, and the wiring 98 and the flat cable connected to the first LED board 65 are prevented. 97 never gets tangled.

(Change example)
The configuration of the gaming machine is not limited to that of the embodiment, and various changes can be made.
(1) In the embodiment, the second movable body is rotated by driving the second drive motor (second drive means). However, the second movable body is not necessarily rotated by the second drive motor, and the second movable body may be configured to rotate in conjunction with the vertical movement of the first movable body. For example, as shown in FIG. 22, a second rack portion 150 extending vertically is provided on the rear surface of the installation member or game board, and the gear portion 76 provided on the second movable body 75 on the left side is If the two rack portions 150 are configured to mesh with each other, the second movable bodies 75 and 77 can be rotated in conjunction with the vertical movement of the first movable body 50 without providing the second drive motor. This eliminates the need for the second drive motor, thereby reducing the number of components and reducing the cost. Moreover, the rotation speed of the second movable bodies 75 and 77 can be changed according to the moving speed of the first movable body 50 by adopting a configuration in which the gear portion 76 rotates as the first movable body 50 moves. it can. Therefore, for example, when the first movable body 50 falls, the second movable bodies 75 and 77 can be rotated at high speed without providing the second drive motor, and a movable effect with impact can be performed. In FIG. 22, the same components as those in the embodiment are denoted by the same reference numerals.

The switching means for switching the engagement state of the first engagement means and the second engagement means is not limited to such a configuration, and for example, the rotating gear member as the switching means is used in the axial direction or the first engagement. A mechanism for moving in a direction toward and away from the means (rack part) is separately provided, and the engagement between the position where the rotating gear member (actuating gear part) meshes with the first engaging means and the first engaging means is released. You may make it displace to the position to be performed. In this case, the operating gear portion may be formed over the entire circumference of the rotating gear member.
(3) In the embodiment, the first movable body is linearly moved downward by its own weight. However, if the first movable body is moved by its own weight, for example, the first movable body is obliquely downward by its own weight. Or the first movable body may move in a curved line. Moreover, it is also possible to employ a configuration in which the first movable body is pivotally supported by its own weight with the one end side of the first movable body being pivotally supported. In any case, the guide portion extends along the movement locus of the first movable body and is configured to guide the movement of the first movable body.
(4) In the embodiment, the connecting portion between the left connecting slider (second guide) and the first movable body is configured to be movable to the left and right, but both the left and right second guides are set to the left and right with respect to the first movable body. It may be configured to be movable. Moreover, in the Example, although the rack part was provided in the right edge part side of the 1st movable body, you may provide a rack part in the left edge part side of a 1st movable body.
(5) In the embodiment, a so-called ball bearing structure is adopted as the guide portion. However, as the configuration of the guide portion, any other configuration may be used as long as the second guide moves along the first guide extending vertically. A configuration can be employed.
(6) In the embodiment, the working gear part is formed by forming an arcuate recess in a part of the working gear part of the rotating gear member, and the working gear part and the connecting gear part are integrally formed. The gear part and the connecting gear part may be formed separately in the axial direction, or the operating gear part and the connecting gear part may be formed on different members.
(7) In the embodiment, the contact means (receiving portion) is provided on the first movable body, and the shock absorbing means (damper member) is provided on the fixed member (installation member). However, the contact means is fixed. You may provide an impact-absorbing means in a member at a 1st movable body, respectively. In the embodiment, the shock absorbing means is installed on the installation member as the fixed member. However, the fixed member may be any member as long as the first movable body moves relatively, for example, the rear surface of the game board or the movable effect device. Other members can be fixed members. Further, in the embodiment, the damper member is employed as the impact absorbing means, but the impact absorbing means may be any means capable of absorbing the impact of the first movable body, for example, by an elastic force such as various springs or rubber. A configuration that absorbs the impact of the first movable body can be employed. Note that the numbers of the abutting means and the impact absorbing means are not limited to those in the embodiment, and an arbitrary number of abutting means and impact absorbing means can be provided. Further, the contact means and the shock absorbing means can be omitted.
(8) In the embodiment, the rotating second movable body is adopted as the second movable body. However, the second movable body is not necessarily rotated, and the second movable body is relatively relative to the first movable body. You may make it move linearly or rock. Further, the number of the second movable bodies may be one or three or more.
(9) In the embodiment and the modified example, the pachinko machine has been described as an example of the gaming machine. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and various conventionally known gaming machines such as an arrangement ball machine and a pinball machine can be adopted. .
