  Although not shown, the symbol display device H displays the outer shape of the moving image 60 displayed on the display unit H1 in a parallelogram with a left slope opposite to the parallelogram with a right slope shown in FIG. It is also possible to do. In this case, the operation control of the movable effect device L by the overall control board 251 is performed on the left movable body 100 by stopping the drive motor 165 of the upper operation mechanism 101 to stop and hold the support arm 147 at the initial position. The drive motor 164 of the lower operation mechanism 102 is driven to rotate the support arm 147 from the initial position to the operation position, thereby bringing the left movable body 100 into the third operation posture. At the same time, in the movable body 100 on the right side, the drive motor 165 of the lower operation mechanism 102 is stopped and the support arm 147 is stopped and held at the initial position, and the drive motor 164 of the upper operation mechanism 101 is driven and the support arm 147 is initialized. By turning from the position to the operating position, the right movable body 100 is set to the second operation posture. Thereby, each movable body 100,100 moves to the front side where the moving image 60 in the effect area of the display unit H1 of the symbol display device H is not displayed, and the left edge of the moving image 60 transformed into a parallelogram and The moving image 60 that extends along the right edge and is deformed and displayed in the display area can be produced as if it was pushed and deformed by the movable bodies 100 and 100.

(Third modified display effect)
FIG. 30 shows that in the display unit H1 of the symbol display device H, the left edge of the moving image 60 is slanted to deform the outer shape into a trapezoid, and the display content also becomes vertical as the left edge side is inclined and approaches the right edge. It is explanatory drawing which showed the 3rd deformation | transformation display effect which displays the moving image 60. In this third modified display effect, the operation control of the movable effect device L by the overall control board 251 is such that the drive motor 165 of the lower operation mechanism 102 is stopped and the support arm 147 is stopped and held at the initial position in the left movable body 100. At the same time, the drive motor 164 of the upper operation mechanism 101 is driven to rotate the support arm 147 from the initial position to the operation position, thereby bringing the left movable body 100 into the second movement posture. Further, in the right movable body 100, the drive motors 165 and 165 of the upper and lower operating mechanisms 101 and 102 are stopped, and the support arms 147 and 147 are stopped and held at the standby positions, so that the right movable body 100 is stopped. Is a standby posture. Thereby, each movable body 100, 100 extends along the left edge and the right edge of the moving image 60 deformed into a trapezoid, and the moving image 60 deformed and displayed in the display area is the left movable body. It can be produced as if it is deformed into a twisted state by being pushed at 100,100. In particular, when the left movable body 100 is displaced from the standby posture to the second operation posture, as described above, each movable body 100, 100 is deformed so as to be largely displaced forward and then displaced backward. Since the image is deformed, each movable body 100, 100 is deformed back and forth in conjunction with the deformation display of the moving image 60, and the moving image 60 can be produced as if it was pushed and deformed by each movable body 100, 100.

(4th modified display effect)
FIG. 31 shows a moving image 60 (60A) in which the right side of the display H1 of the symbol display device H is gradually reduced from left to right and the right edge appears to move backward by moving the left edge to the right. (Refer to FIG. 31 (a)), the moving image 60 (60B) (see FIG. 31 (FIG. 31 ()), which seems to have moved leftward by gradually reducing the size from right to left and moving the right edge to the left. It is explanatory drawing which showed the 4th deformation | transformation display effect which displays b) alternately. In the fourth modified display effect, when the moving image 60A is displayed, the driving motors 165 and 165 of the upper operating mechanism 101 and the lower operating mechanism 102 of the left movable body 100 are driven, and the support arms 147 are driven. , 147 is swung from the initial position to the operating position, and the left movable body 100 is moved to the first operation posture. Thereby, each movable body 100, 100 comes to be positioned along the left and right edges of the reduced moving image 60. In particular, when the left movable body 100 is displaced from the standby posture to the first operation posture, as described above, the movable body 100 is deformed so as to be largely displaced forward and then deformed so as to be displaced backward. Thus, the moving image 60 is pushed from the left side by the left movable body 100, whereby the moving image 60 can be moved rightward and the right side can be seen to slide backward.

  When the display on the display unit H1 is switched from the moving image 60A to the moving image 60B, in the operation control for the movable effect device L of the overall control board 251, the left movable body 100 is changed from the first operation posture to the standby posture. Simultaneously with the movement, the right movable body 100 is moved from the standby posture to the first operation posture. At this time, when the left movable body 100 is displaced from the first operation posture to the standby posture, as described above, the movable body 100 is deformed so as to be largely displaced forward and then deformed so as to be displaced backward. Therefore, it is possible to produce an effect that the left side of the moving image 60 is seen to be pushed backward while being pulled leftward by the left movable body 100. On the other hand, when the right movable body 100 is displaced from the standby posture to the first operation posture, as described above, the movable body 100 is deformed so as to be largely displaced forward and then deformed so as to be displaced backward. Therefore, it is possible to produce an effect that the right side of the moving image 60 is seen to be pushed rightward while being pulled forward by the movable body 100 on the right side. Accordingly, in the fourth modified display effect, display control is performed so that the moving image 60 is continuously deformed between the moving image 60A and the moving image 60B, and the left movable body 100 and the right movable member are moved accordingly. By alternately controlling the body 100 to the standby posture and the first motion posture, each movable body 100, 100 appears to be deformed while pushing or pulling the moving image 60 (60A, 60B) from the left and right. And a high production effect can be obtained.

  When the moving image 60A and the moving image 60B are alternately and repeatedly deformed in a short time, the left and right movable bodies 100 and 100 rotate the support arms 147 and 147 between the operating position and the midway position. Thus, without returning from the first motion posture to the standby posture, the left and right movable bodies 100, 100 are reciprocated between the first motion posture and the halfway position (the position indicated by the two-dot chain line in FIG. 16). By making it move, it can respond to the change of the moving images 60A and 60B in a short time. In addition, since the left and right movable bodies 100, 100 are deformed in the same direction as the tilt direction of the movable body 100 in the midway posture corresponding to the first motion posture and the midway position, the moving image displayed on the display unit H1 The action of pushing or pulling the image 60 (60A, 60B) can be realistically produced.

(Fifth modified display effect)
FIG. 32 shows a moving image in which, on the display unit H1 of the symbol display device H, the symbol row 61 gradually expands from right to left and the left edge moves to the right by moving the left edge forward. 60 (60A) (see FIG. 32 (a)), and the video sequence 61 gradually expands from left to right and moves the right edge to the left so that the right side appears to move forward. It is explanatory drawing which showed the 5th deformation | transformation display effect which displays 60 (60B) (refer FIG.32 (b)) alternately. In the fifth modified display effect, when the moving image 60 </ b> A is displayed, the drive motors 165 and 165 of the upper movable mechanism 101 and the lower movable mechanism 102 on the left movable body 100 are driven to support the support arms 147. , 147 is swung from the initial position to the operating position, thereby moving the left movable body 100 to the first operation posture. Thereby, each movable body 100, 100 comes to be positioned along the left edge and the right edge of the moving image 60. In particular, when the left movable body 100 is displaced from the standby posture to the first operation posture, as described above, the movable body 100 is deformed so as to be largely displaced forward. When the body 100 is pressed from the left side, the left side of the moving image 60 moves to the right side, and an effect of making it appear to slide forward is possible.

  When the display on the display unit H1 is switched from the moving image 60A to the moving image 60B, in the operation control for the movable effect device L of the overall control board 251, the left movable body 100 is changed from the first operation posture to the standby posture. Simultaneously with the movement, the right movable body 100 is moved from the standby posture to the first operation posture. At this time, when the left movable body 100 is displaced from the first operation posture to the standby posture, as described above, the movable body 100 is deformed so as to be largely displaced forward and then deformed so as to be displaced backward. Therefore, it is possible to produce an effect in which the left side of the moving image 60 appears to be pulled backward while being pulled leftward by the left movable body 100. On the other hand, when the right movable body 100 is displaced from the standby posture to the first motion posture, as described above, the movable body 100 is deformed so as to be largely displaced forward. The right movable body 100 can produce an effect that makes it appear to be pushed forward while being pushed to the left. Therefore, in the fifth modified display effect, display control is performed so that the moving image 60 is continuously deformed between the moving image 60A and the moving image 60B, and the left movable body 100 and the right movable member are moved accordingly. By alternately controlling the body 100 to the standby posture and the first motion posture, each movable body 100, 100 can appear to be deformed while pushing or pulling the moving image 60 (60A, 60B). High production effects can be obtained.

  The deformation display effect of the moving image 60 that is displayed on the display unit H1 of the symbol display device H is not limited to the deformation display effects illustrated in FIGS. 28 to 32, but by a combination of operations of the movable bodies 100 and 100. Various productions are possible.

  Therefore, in the pachinko machine P of the embodiment, a display effect is performed in which the outer peripheral contour shape of the moving image 60 displayed on the display unit H1 of the symbol display device H is changed, and the moving image 60 is displayed on the display unit H1. Since the operation control of the left and right movable bodies 100 and 100 of the movable effect device L is performed in conjunction with the effect, the display effect of the moving image 60 displayed on the display unit H1 and the operation effect of the movable objects 100 and 100 are obtained. It can be seen in conjunction with it, and the visual effect can be enhanced to improve the interest of the game. In particular, each of the movable bodies 100 and 100 includes a first movable member 190 and a second movable member 191 arranged along the display portion H1, and interlocks with changes in the outer peripheral contour shape of the moving image 60 on the display portion H1. Then, since the movable body 100 is operated so that each movable member 190, 191 moves to a position along the outer periphery of the moving image 60, each movable member 190, 191 deforms the outer contour shape of the moving image 60. It can be shown, and the visual effect can be suitably enhanced.

  When the display effect for reducing the moving image 60 displayed on the display unit H1 is executed, the movable body 100 is moved to the front side of the non-display portion of the moving image 60 on the display unit H1, and thus the movable The body 100 can press the moving image 60 to make it appear as if the moving image 60 is compressed. Moreover, since the moving image 60 and each movable body 100,100 do not overlap, it can prevent that the moving image 60 becomes difficult to see.

  Further, the movable effect device L is provided with movable bodies 100, 100 such that the first movable member 190 and the second movable member 191 are arranged in the vertical direction on the left and right sides of the display unit H1, and each movable body 100 is arranged. , 100 is supported by the support arm 147 of the upper operation mechanism 101 and the lower end 100B is supported by the support arm 147 of the lower operation mechanism 102. Therefore, one of the upper and lower operation mechanisms 101, 102 is selected. When one side is operated, the movable body 100 moves to the second operation posture in which the upper end 100A side moves to the front side of the display unit H1 around the lower end 100B side, or the lower end 100B side moves around the upper end 100A side. Since it can move to the 3rd operation posture which moved to the front side of display part H1, this movable object 100 can be operated to the posture inclined in the front side of display part H1. Further, when both the support arm 147 of the upper operation mechanism 101 and the support arm 147 of the lower operation mechanism 102 are simultaneously rotated, the upper end portion 100A and the lower end portion 100B in the longitudinal direction of the movable body 100 move synchronously. The movable body 100 can be moved to the first motion posture in a posture extending in the vertical direction on the front side of the display unit H1. Accordingly, the display unit H1 that can be viewed through the movable units 100, 100 by individually operating the movable units 100, 100 arranged to face each other in the left-right direction across the display unit H1. The shape can be a square, a rectangle, a parallelogram, a triangle, or the like, and the moving image 60 can be displayed with various outer peripheral contour shapes.

  Further, the movable effect device L operates at least one of the upper operation mechanism 101 and the lower operation mechanism 102 to rotate the support arm 147, so that the movable body 100 has an upper end portion 100A and a lower end portion 100B in the longitudinal direction. Move while being deformed so that they are close to each other in the vertical direction and the intermediate portion is displaced back and forth. That is, the movable body 100 is three-dimensionally (three-dimensionally) deformed while being displaced in the front-rear direction between the upper end portion 100A and the lower end portion 100B at the same time the posture is displaced in the direction in which the upper and lower support arms 147, 147 pivot. As a result, an effect with an impact is executed, and the effect can be suitably enhanced.

  In addition, when the movable body 100 moves between the standby posture and the first movement posture, the movable body 100 moves between the standby posture and the third movement posture when moving between the standby posture and the second movement posture. At this time, since the first movable member 190 and the second movable member 191 are deformed so as to be bent while rotating with respect to the connecting portion 192, smooth deformation can be maintained over a long period of time. Furthermore, since the movable body 100 includes the first to third decorative members 230, 231, and 232, the decorative effect can be enhanced.
