  An outer rail 62 formed by bending a strip-shaped metal plate into a substantially arc shape is planted on the front surface of the game board 13, and the strip-shaped metal plate is located on the inner side of the outer rail 62 in the same manner as the outer rail 62. The arc-shaped inner rail 61 formed by the above is planted. The inner rail 61 and the outer rail 62 surround the outer periphery of the front surface of the game board 13, and the game board 13 and the glass unit 16 (see FIG. 1) surround the front and rear. A game area in which a game is played is formed by the behavior of. The game area is an area formed on the front surface of the game board 13 and defined by two rails 61 and 62 and a resin outer edge member 73 that connects the rails (a winning opening is provided and fired). Area where the falling sphere flows).

  The two rails 61 and 62 are provided to guide the ball fired from the ball launch unit 112a (see FIG. 4) to the upper part of the game board 13. A return ball preventing member 68 is attached to the front end portion of the inner rail 61 (upper left portion in FIG. 2) to prevent the ball once guided to the upper portion of the game board 13 from returning to the ball guide path again. Is done. A return rubber 69 is attached to the tip of the outer rail 62 (upper right part in FIG. 2) at a position corresponding to the maximum flying portion of the sphere. Is bounced back to the center while being attenuated.

  First symbol display devices 37A and 37B including a plurality of LEDs serving as light emitting means and a 7-segment display are disposed in the lower left portion of the game area when viewed from the front (lower left portion in FIG. 2). The first symbol display devices 37A and 37B display according to each control performed by the main control device 110 (see FIG. 4), and mainly display the gaming state of the pachinko machine 10. In the present embodiment, the first symbol display devices 37 </ b> A and 37 </ b> B are configured to be selectively used depending on whether the ball has won the first prize opening 64 or the second prize opening 640. Specifically, when the ball wins the first winning opening 64, the first symbol display device 37A operates, while when the ball wins the second winning opening 640, the first symbol display device 37A operates. The symbol display device 37B is configured to operate.

  In addition, the first symbol display devices 37A and 37B indicate, by means of LEDs, whether the pachinko machine 10 is in the process of changing the probability, in the short time, or in the normal state by a lighting state, or whether the pachinko machine 10 is changing or not by a lighting state. , Indicating whether the stop symbol is a symbol corresponding to a probable jackpot, a symbol corresponding to a normal jackpot, or a symbol that is out of place by a lighting state, indicating the number of held balls by a lighting state, and a 7-segment display device, Displays numbers and errors. The plurality of LEDs are configured to have different emission colors (for example, red, green, and blue) of each LED, and the combination of the emission colors may suggest various gaming states of the pachinko machine 10 with a small number of LEDs. it can.

  In the present pachinko machine 10, a lottery is performed in response to winning of the first winning port 64 and the second winning port 640. In the lottery, the pachinko machine 10 determines whether or not it is a big hit (big hit lottery), and also determines the type of the big hit if it is determined to be a big hit. As the jackpot type determined here, 15R probability variation jackpot, 4R probability variation jackpot, and 15R normal jackpot are prepared. The first symbol display devices 37A and 37B not only indicate whether or not the lottery result is a jackpot as a stop symbol after the end of the variation, but if it is a jackpot, a symbol corresponding to the jackpot type is displayed. .

  Here, the “15R probability variation jackpot” is a probability variation jackpot in which the maximum number of rounds shifts to a high probability state after a jackpot of 15 rounds, and “4R probability variation jackpot” is a jackpot with a maximum number of rounds of four. It is a probabilistic jackpot that shifts to a high probability state after. In addition, “15R normal jackpot” is a jackpot that shifts to a low probability state after the maximum number of rounds of 15 rounds and hits a short time during a predetermined number of fluctuations (for example, 100 fluctuations). is there.

  In addition, the “high probability state” means a state in which the jackpot probability thereafter increases as an added value after the jackpot ends, that is, when the probability change is in progress (probability change), in other words, a game that easily shifts to the special game state. It is a state of. The high probability state (during probability change) in the present embodiment includes a game state in which the hit probability of the second symbol, which will be described later, is increased and the ball is likely to win the second winning opening 640. The “low probability state” refers to a time when the probability of jackpot change is not occurring, and a state where the jackpot probability is normal, that is, a state where the jackpot probability is lower than that at the time of probability change. The short time state (short time medium) of the “low probability state” means that the jackpot probability is a normal state, and the jackpot probability remains as it is, and only the hit probability of the second symbol is increased, and the second prize opening 640 is obtained. It means the state of the game where the ball is easy to win. On the other hand, when the pachinko machine 10 is in a normal state is a game state (a state where neither the big hit probability nor the second symbol hit probability is increased) which is neither probabilistic nor short in time.

  During probability change and time reduction, not only does the probability of winning the second symbol increase, but also the time for opening the electric accessory 640a associated with the second prize opening 640 is changed, and the time is longer than normal. Is set. When the electric accessory 640a is in the opened state (open state), the ball wins the second winning opening 640 as compared to the case where the electric accessory 640a is in the closed state (closed state). Easy state. Therefore, during the probability change or the short time, it becomes easy for the ball to win the second winning opening 640, and the number of jackpot lotteries can be increased.

  In addition, during the probability change or during the short time, it is not necessary to change the opening time of the electric accessory 640a associated with the second prize opening 640, or in addition to changing the opening time, It is good also as what changes the frequency | count that the accessory 640a opens more than usual. In addition, the probability of winning the second symbol is not changed during the probability change or in the short time, and the electric accessory 640a is released at the time when the electric accessory 640a associated with the second winning opening 640 is opened and once. It is good also as what changes at least one of the frequency | counts. In addition, during the probability change or in the short time, the time of opening the electric accessory 640a associated with the second winning opening 640 or the number of times of opening the electric accessory 640a per time is not counted, and the second symbol hit Only the probability may be changed so as to increase compared to the normal rate.

  The game area is provided with a plurality of general winning ports 63 through which 5 to 15 balls are paid out as winning balls when the balls win. In addition, a variable display device unit 80 is disposed in the central portion of the game area. The variable display device unit 80 is synchronized with the variable display on the first symbol display devices 37A and 37B by using a winning (start winning) at the first winning port 64 and the second winning port 640 as a trigger. It is composed of a third symbol display device 81 composed of a liquid crystal display (hereinafter simply referred to as “display device”) that performs variable display, and an LED that displays the second symbol in a variable manner with the passage of a sphere of the through gate 67 as a trigger. A second symbol display device (not shown) is provided. The variable display device unit 80 is provided with a center frame 86 so as to surround the outer periphery of the third symbol display device 81.

  The third symbol display device 81 is constituted by a large 9-inch liquid crystal display, and the display content is controlled by the display control device 114 (see FIG. 4). One symbol row is displayed. Each symbol row is composed of a plurality of symbols (third symbol). These third symbols are horizontally scrolled for each symbol column, and the third symbol is variably displayed on the display screen of the third symbol display device 81. It is like that. In the third symbol display device 81 of the present embodiment, the game state is displayed on the first symbol display devices 37A and 37B in accordance with the control of the main control device 110 (see FIG. 4). The decorative display according to the display of the symbol display devices 37A and 37B is performed. Instead of the display device, the third symbol display device 81 may be configured using, for example, a reel.

  Each time the ball passes through the through gate 67, the second symbol display device alternately turns on the symbol “◯” and the symbol “X” as a display symbol (second symbol (not shown)) for a predetermined time. A variable display is performed. In the pachinko machine 10, when it is detected that the ball has passed through the through gate 67, a winning lottery is performed. As a result of the winning lottery, if the winning symbol is a winning symbol, the symbol “◯” is stopped and displayed on the second symbol display device after the variation of the second symbol is displayed. Further, if the winning lottery results, the symbol of “x” is stopped and displayed on the second symbol display device after the variation of the third symbol is displayed.

  In the pachinko machine 10, when the variable display on the second symbol display device stops at a predetermined symbol (in this embodiment, a symbol “◯”), the electric accessory 640a attached to the second winning opening 640 is displayed for a predetermined time. It is configured to be in an activated state (opened) only.

  The time required for the variable display of the second symbol is set to be shorter during the probability change or during the shorter time than when the game state is normal. As a result, during the probability change and during the time reduction, since the variation display of the second symbol is performed in a short time, the winning lottery can be performed more than during normal. Therefore, since the chance of winning in the winning lottery increases, it is possible to give the player a lot of opportunities for the electric winning component 640a of the second winning opening 640 to be in an open state. Therefore, it is possible to make it easier for the ball to win the second winning opening 640 during the probability change and during the short time.

  It is to be noted that the probability of winning is increased during probability change or time reduction, and other methods such as increasing the opening time and the number of times of opening of the electric accessory 640a per hit are also used to reach the second prize opening 640 during probability change or time reduction. When the ball is in a state where it is easy to win, the time required for the variable display of the second symbol may be constant regardless of the gaming state. On the other hand, when the time required for displaying the variation of the second symbol is set shorter than normal during probability change or short time, the winning probability may be constant regardless of the gaming state, The opening time and the number of opening times of the electric accessory 640a may be constant regardless of the gaming state.

  The through gate 67 is assembled to the game board on the right side in the lower area of the variable display device unit 80, and a part of the ball flowing down to the right side of the game board can pass through the balls launched to the game board. It is configured. When the ball passes through the through gate 67, a winning lottery of the second symbol is performed. After winning the lottery, the 2nd symbol display device displays the variation. For example, the symbol “x” is displayed as the stop symbol of the variable display.

  The total number of passes through the through-gate 67 of the sphere is held up to a maximum of 4 times, and the number of held balls is displayed by the above-described first symbol display devices 37A and 37B and at the second symbol hold lamp (not shown). Is also displayed. Four second symbol holding lamps are provided for the maximum number of holdings, and are arranged symmetrically below the third symbol display device 81.

  Note that the variable display of the second symbol is performed by switching between lighting and non-lighting of a plurality of lamps in the second symbol display device as in the present embodiment, as well as the first symbol display devices 37A, 37B and the third symbol. A part of the symbol display device 81 may be used. Similarly, the second symbol holding lamp may be turned on by a part of the third symbol display device 81. Further, the maximum number of balls held for passing through the ball of the through gate 67 is not limited to four times, and may be set to three times or less, or five times or more (for example, eight times). Further, the number of through gates 67 to be assembled is not limited to one, and may be plural (for example, two). Further, the assembly position of the through gate 67 is not limited to the right side of the variable display device unit 80, and may be the left side of the variable display device unit 80, for example. In addition, since the number of reserved balls is indicated by the first symbol display devices 37A and 37B, the second symbol hold lamp may not perform lighting display.

  Below the variable display unit 80, a first winning port 64 through which a ball can win is disposed. When a ball wins the first winning port 64, a first winning port switch (not shown) provided on the back side of the game board 13 is turned on, and the main controller 110 is caused by the first winning port switch being turned on. A jackpot lottery is made (see FIG. 4), and a display corresponding to the lottery result is shown on the first symbol display device 37A.

  On the other hand, a second winning port 640 through which a ball can win is disposed on the right side of the first winning port 64 in front view. When a ball wins the second prize opening 640, a second prize opening switch (not shown) provided on the back side of the game board 13 is turned on, and the main controller 110 is caused by the second prize opening switch being turned on. A jackpot lottery is performed (see FIG. 4), and a display corresponding to the lottery result is shown on the first symbol display device 37B.

  Each of the first winning port 64 and the second winning port 640 is also one of winning ports from which five balls are paid out as winning balls when a ball is won. In the present embodiment, the number of prize balls to be paid out when a ball wins the first prize opening 64 and the number of prize balls to be paid out when a ball wins the second prize slot 640 are configured to be the same. The number of prize balls to be paid out when a ball wins the first prize opening 64 is different from the number of prize balls to be paid out when a ball wins to the second prize opening 640, for example, the ball to the first prize opening 64 The number of prize balls to be paid out when a prize is won may be three, and the number of prize balls to be paid out when a ball wins the second prize opening 640 may be five.

  The second winning opening 640 is accompanied by an electric accessory 640a. The electric accessory 640a is configured to be openable and closable. Normally, the electric accessory 640a is in a closed state (reduced state), and it is difficult for the ball to win the second winning opening 640. On the other hand, when the symbol “◯” is displayed on the second symbol display device as a result of the variation display of the second symbol that is triggered by the passage of the ball to the through gate 67, the electric accessory 640a is in an open state (enlarged) State), and the ball is likely to win the second winning opening 640.

  As described above, the probability of hitting the second symbol is higher than that during normal change during the probability change and the short time, and the time required for the variation display of the second symbol is short. "Is easily displayed, and the number of times that the electric accessory 640a is opened (enlarged) is increased. Further, during the probability change and the time reduction, the time for opening the electric accessory 640a also becomes longer than during the normal time. Therefore, it is possible to create a state where the ball is likely to win the second winning opening 640 during the probability change and during the short time compared to the normal time.

  Here, the probability of winning a big hit is the same in both the low probability state and the high probability state when the ball wins the first winning port 64 and when the ball wins the second winning port 640. However, the probability that a 15R probability variation jackpot is selected as the jackpot type selected when the jackpot is won is higher when the ball wins the second winning slot 640 than when the ball wins the first winning slot 64. Is set. On the other hand, the first winning port 64 does not have an electric accessory as in the second winning port 640, and is in a state where the ball can always win.

  Therefore, during normal times, the electric winnings associated with the second winning opening 640 are often in a closed state, and it is difficult to win the second winning opening 640. Then, the ball is fired so that the ball passes to the left of the variable display device unit 80 (so-called “left-handed”), and a lot of opportunities for lottery wins are obtained by winning at the first winning opening 64, and the jackpot It is advantageous for the player to aim for this.

  On the other hand, during the probability change or during the short time, passing the ball through the through gate 67 makes it easy for the electric accessory 640a attached to the second winning opening 640 to be in an open state and to easily win the second winning opening 640. Therefore, the ball is fired toward the second prize opening 640 so that the ball passes the right side of the variable display device 80 (so-called “right-handed”), and is passed through the through gate 67 to open the electric accessory. In addition, it is more advantageous for the player to aim for a 15R probability variation jackpot by winning the second winning opening 640.

  As described above, the pachinko machine 10 according to the present embodiment launches a ball to the player in accordance with the gaming state of the pachinko machine 10 (whether it is probable, short, or normal). Can be changed between “left-handed” and “right-handed”. Thus, the player can be changed in the way the ball is hit, so that the game can be enjoyed.

  A first variable winning device 65 is disposed on the lower right side of the first winning port 64, and a horizontally elongated first specific winning port (large opening port) 65a is provided at a substantially central portion thereof. Further, a second variable winning device 650 is disposed on the lower left side of the first winning port 64, and has a circular shape having the same size as the other winning ports 63, 64, and 640 at a substantially central portion thereof. A second specific winning opening 650a is provided. In the pachinko machine 10, when the jackpot lottery performed due to the winning at the first winning port 64 or the second winning port 640 becomes a jackpot, after a predetermined time (variable time) has passed, The first symbol display device 37A or the first symbol display device 37B is turned on, and a stop symbol corresponding to the jackpot is displayed on the third symbol display device 81 to indicate the occurrence of the jackpot. Thereafter, the gaming state transitions to a special gaming state (big hit) where the ball is easy to win. As this special gaming state, the special winning openings 65a and 650a that are normally closed are opened for a predetermined time (for example, until 30 seconds have elapsed or 10 balls have been won).

  The specific winning ports 65a and 650a are closed when a predetermined time elapses, and after the closing, the specific winning ports 65a and 650a are opened again for a predetermined time. The opening / closing operation of the specific winning ports 65a and 650a can be repeated up to 15 times (15 rounds), for example.

(Not shown). The first specific winning opening 65a is normally in a closed state where the ball cannot win or is difficult to win. In the case of a big win, the large opening opening solenoid is driven to tilt the opening / closing plate downward, and the ball is temporarily formed in an open state in which it is easy to win the first specific winning opening 65a. It operates so as to alternately repeat the closed state and the closed state.

  Specifically, the second variable winning device 650 is an opening that is a guide path that guides the ball to the second specific winning port 650a and an opening that is on the opposite side of the guide path from the second specific winning port 650a side. 651, a driving member 650b for opening and closing the opening 651, and a small opening solenoid (not shown) for driving the driving member 650b to open and close in the horizontal direction about the lower side of the opening 651 And. The second specific winning opening 650a is normally in a closed state where the ball cannot win or is difficult to win. In the case of a big hit, the small opening opening solenoid is driven to tilt the driving tool 650b to the right, and an open state in which the ball is likely to win the second specific winning opening 650a is temporarily formed. It operates so as to alternately repeat the state of closed time.

  Note that the special gaming state is not limited to the above-described form. When the game area is provided with a large opening that is opened and closed separately from the specific winning openings 65a and 650a, and the LED corresponding to the jackpot is turned on in the first symbol display devices 37A and 37B, the specific winning openings 65a and 650a are set for a predetermined time. A large opening provided separately from the specific winning ports 65a and 650a is triggered for a predetermined time when the ball wins into the specific winning ports 65a and 650a while the specific winning ports 65a and 650a are opened.

  The power supply device 115 includes a power supply unit 251 for supplying power to each unit of the pachinko machine 10, a power failure monitoring circuit 252 for monitoring power interruption due to a power failure, and a RAM deletion switch 122 (see FIG. 3). And an erasing switch circuit 253. The power supply unit 251 is a device that supplies a necessary operating voltage to each of the control devices 110 to 114 through a power supply path (not shown). As its outline, the power supply unit 251 takes in the voltage of AC 24 volts supplied from the outside, and drives various switches such as various switches 208, solenoids such as the solenoid 209, motors, etc. A 5 volt voltage for logic, a backup voltage for RAM backup, and the like are generated, and the 12 volt voltage, the 5 volt voltage, and the backup voltage are supplied to the control devices 110 to 114 as necessary voltages.

  The power failure monitoring circuit 252 is a circuit for outputting a power failure signal SG1 to each NMI terminal of the MPU 201 of the main control device 110 and the MPU 211 of the payout control device 111 when the power is cut off due to the occurrence of a power failure or the like. The power failure monitoring circuit 252 monitors the DC stable voltage of 24 volts, which is the maximum voltage output from the power supply unit 251, and determines that a power failure (power interruption, power interruption) occurs when this voltage falls below 22 volts. Then, the power failure signal SG1 is output to the main controller 110 and the payout controller 111. Based on the output of the power failure signal SG1, the main controller 110 and the payout controller 111 recognize the occurrence of the power failure and execute the NMI interrupt process. Note that the power supply unit 251 outputs a voltage of 5 volts, which is a drive voltage of the control system, for a time sufficient to execute the NMI interrupt processing even after the DC stable voltage of 24 volts becomes less than 22 volts. Is maintained at a normal value. Therefore, main controller 110 and payout controller 111 can normally execute and complete the NMI interrupt process (not shown).

  The RAM erase switch circuit 253 is a circuit for outputting a RAM erase signal SG2 for clearing backup data to the main controller 110 when the RAM erase switch 122 (see FIG. 3) is pressed. When the RAM erase signal SG2 is input when the pachinko machine 10 is powered on, the main control device 110 clears the backup data, and the payout control device 111 issues a payout initialization command for clearing the backup data. Transmit to device 111.

  Next, with reference to FIG. 5, the positional relationship between the transmission shaft portion 322 d of the second gear 322 in the game board 13 and the insertion hole 441 b of the first shielding member 441 in the operation unit 200 will be described.

  FIG. 5 is a perspective view of the game board 13 and the operation unit 200. A rear perspective view of the game board 13 is shown on the left side of the drawing in FIG. 5, and a front perspective view of the operation unit 200 is shown on the right side of the drawing in FIG. The game board 13 is fastened and fixed to the front side of the operation unit 200 in the assembled state.

  As shown in FIG. 5, a first gear 321 and a second gear 322 that is rotated by being driven by the first gear 321 are disposed on the upper right side of the game board 13 as viewed from the rear. The first gear 321 is axially coupled to the movable member 310 (see FIGS. 2 and 9), which is a windmill capable of rotating in the clockwise and counterclockwise directions described above, so as to be synchronously rotatable.

  The transmission shaft portion 322 d of the second gear 322 is formed so as to be able to be inserted into the insertion hole 441 b of the lifting operation unit 400 in the assembled state of the game board 13 and the operation unit 200.

  FIG. 6 is a rear view of the game board 13. Although the rear view of the game board 13 has been described with reference to FIG. 5 as a schematic, it will be described again in detail here. As shown in FIG. 6, the game board 13 includes a first gear 321 and a second gear 322, which are disposed on the upper right side of the game board 13 as viewed from the rear. Here, the first gear 321 is axially coupled to the movable member 310 disposed on the upper right side of the return ball preventing member 68 (see FIG. 2) in a front view so as to be synchronously rotatable (see FIG. 9).

  Therefore, when the ball flows down the front surface of the game board 13 (see FIG. 2), collides with the movable member 310 (see FIG. 9), and the movable member 310 is rotated, the rotation is the first gear 321 and the second gear. Since the transmission shaft portion 322d is rotated with the rotation, the first effect member 442 (see FIG. 12) disposed at one end of the transmission shaft portion 322d is rotated, and the first shielded device The appearance of 440 (see FIG. 5) will be changed, and details will be described later.

  Here, as described above, the movable member 310 is disposed on the upper left side of the game board 13 when viewed from the front (see FIG. 2), so that the ball collides with a nail or the like in the process of flowing down before the flowing path branches off. In addition, the ball can collide with the movable member 310 (see FIG. 9). Therefore, the probability that the sphere collides with the movable member 310 can be increased, and the frequency with which the rotational force of the first gear 321 rotating in synchronization with the movable member 310 is transmitted to the second gear 322 can be increased. The frequency with which the appearance of one shielded device 440 (see FIG. 16) is changed can be increased.

  Next, with reference to FIG. 7 and FIG. 8, the housing structure of the units 400 to 600 in the rear case 210 will be described.

  7 and 8 are exploded front perspective views of the operation unit 200 as seen from the front. FIG. 8 illustrates a state in which the lifting / lowering operation unit 400 and the swing operation unit 600 are mounted on the rear case 210.

  The operation unit 200 has a rear case 210 formed in a box shape in which one surface side (the front side in FIG. 7) is opened from a bottom wall portion 211 and an outer wall portion 212 erected from the outer edge of the bottom wall portion 211. Is provided. The rear case 210 is formed in a rectangular frame shape when viewed from the front by forming a rectangular opening 211a at the center of the bottom wall portion 211 thereof. The opening 211a is formed in a size corresponding to the outer shape of the third symbol display device 81 (see FIG. 2) (that is, the third symbol display device 81 can be disposed).

  In the operation unit 200, an elevating operation unit 400, a swing operation unit 600, and a shielding operation unit 500 are accommodated in the internal space of the rear case 210, and are configured as one unit.

  Specifically, the lifting / lowering operation unit 400 is disposed on the bottom wall portion 211 of the rear case 210 at a position above the opening 211a and the swinging operation unit 600 is disposed at a position on the left and right of the opening 211a (FIG. 8).

  In contrast to the state shown in FIG. 8, the shielding operation unit 500 is disposed on the front side of the swing operation unit 600 in a stacked state, and is accommodated in the rear case 210 (see FIG. 5).

  Since each of these operation units 400 to 600 is formed to be operable independently, they can be operated simultaneously. Therefore, not only each of the operation units 400 to 600 can be operated alone, but also these operations can be combined, so that the effect of production can be enhanced.

  Next, with reference to FIG. 9, the arrangement structure of the first gear 321 and the second gear 322 described above on the game board 13 will be described.

  FIG. 9 is a partially enlarged rear perspective view of the movable member 310, the first gear 321, and the second gear 322 in a state of being disposed on the game board 13. The game board 13 is partially illustrated and partially viewed in cross section. In FIG. 9, the lower side of the drawing coincides with the front of the game board 13.

  As shown in FIG. 9, the game board 13 has two insertion holes, the shaft support body 311 of the movable member 310 is inserted into one insertion hole, and the first gear is connected to one end of the shaft support body 311. 321 is disposed. Further, the shaft portion 322c of the second gear 322 is pivotally supported in the other insertion hole, and the second gear 322 is disposed on the game board 13 with the first gear 321 engaged.

  The movable member 310 is a member that is collided with and rotated by a ball flowing down the front surface of the game board 13, and has a columnar shaft support body 311 and a locking portion 311 a formed at one end of the shaft support body 311. And three wings 312a-312c erected radially at equal intervals outward in the radial direction on the opposite side of the locking portion 311a of the shaft support body 311 and comprising a metal shaft support The wings 312a to 312c formed of a resin material are fixed to the main body 311. Here, the locking portion 311a is formed in a D-shaped cross section.

  The first gear 321 is a member formed of a resin material that is rotated in synchronization with the movable member 310, and is engraved on the first main body 321a having a circular shape in front view and the outer peripheral surface of the first main body 321a. Teeth 321b, a flange portion 321c projecting in a flange shape from the outer peripheral surface of the first main body 321a at a position on the rear surface side (opposite side of the game board 13) of the first gear 321 from the teeth 321b, and the first main body And a shaft hole portion 321d drilled in the center of 321a. Since the shaft hole portion 321d is formed to have a slightly larger D-shaped cross section than the locking portion 311a, the movable member 310 is moved to the first gear 321 by inserting the locking portion 311a into the shaft hole portion 321d. Is locked in the circumferential direction. Since the retaining ring E as a retaining member is fixed to the locking portion 311e of the movable member 310, the first gear 321 is disposed so as not to be pulled out rearward of the game board 13.

  The second gear 322 is a member that is rotated by the first gear 321 and is formed of a resin material, and is engraved on the second main body 322a having a circular shape in front view and the outer peripheral surface of the second main body 322a. Teeth 322b, a cylindrical shaft portion 322c erected from the center of the second main body 322a (the game board 13 side), and formed coaxially with the shaft portion 322c and behind the second main body 322a (game) A cylindrical transmission shaft portion 322d erected on the opposite side of the panel 13 and a rectangular cross-section engaging portion 322e erected in the axial direction from one end of the transmission shaft portion 322d are mainly provided. A shaft portion 322 c of the second gear 322 is rotatably supported by an insertion hole formed in the game board 13.

  The transmission shaft portion 322d is inserted through the insertion hole 441b in a state where the game board 13 and the operation unit 200 are fastened and fixed (see FIG. 20). For this reason, the second gear 322 is pivotally supported by the insertion hole and the insertion hole 441b of the game board 13 with both ends.

  The locking portion 322e is a portion connected to the first effect member 442 in a state where the game board 13 and the operation unit 200 are fastened and fixed, and the first effect member 442 is engaged with the locking portion 322e in the circumferential direction. By being stopped, it is rotated in synchronization with the second gear 322 (see FIG. 20).

  Transmission of rotation from the movable member 310 to the second gear 322 will be described. The movable member 310 and the first gear 321 are connected by inserting the locking portion 311a of the movable member 310 into the shaft hole portion 321d of the first gear 321. Since the locking portion 311 a and the shaft hole portion 321 d are locked in the circumferential direction, the first gear 321 is rotated in synchronization with the movable member 310 when the movable member 310 is rotated. When the first gear 321 is rotated, the second gear 322 meshed with the first gear 321 is rotated. Therefore, rotation is transmitted from the movable member 310 to the second gear 322.

  The operation of the flange portion 321c will be described. When the second gear 322 is held in the insertion hole formed in the game board 13 and the teeth 321b of the first gear 321 and the teeth 322b of the second gear 322 are engaged, the second gear 322 is flanged. The flange portion 321c of the first gear 321 acts as a retainer for the second gear 322 so as to be sandwiched between the portion 321c and the game board 13. That is, the flange portion 321c of the first gear 321 and the teeth 322b of the second gear 322 have portions that overlap in the axial direction, and the first gear 321 is disposed so as not to be pulled out in the front-rear direction as described above. Therefore, the second gear 322 can be made undrawn in the front-rear direction similarly to the first gear 321. Therefore, it is not necessary to provide another member such as an E-ring that makes it impossible to pull out the second gear 322 from the game board 13, and the cost of parts can be reduced.

  Moreover, since the flange part 321c is formed in the 1st gearwheel 321, it can suppress that the 1st gearwheel 321 inclines by rotation using the 2nd gearwheel 322 by the flange part 321c. That is, the second gear 322 is supported at both ends by the insertion hole of the game board 13 and the insertion hole 441b of the first shielding member 441 as described above in a state where the game board 13 is fastened and fixed to the operation unit 200. Therefore, the axis at the time of rotation is stabilized (see FIG. 20). On the other hand, since the first gear 321 is cantilevered by the shaft support body 311 inserted through the game board 13, the shaft center during rotation tends to be inclined. On the other hand, in this embodiment, since the flange part 321c is formed in the 1st gearwheel 321, when the 1st gearwheel 321 inclines to the 2nd gearwheel 322 side, the flange part 321c becomes the tooth | gear 322b of the 2nd gearwheel 322. Abutting on the side surface, the inclination of the first gear 321 is restricted. Therefore, without providing an auxiliary member that suppresses the inclination of the first gear 321, the meshing state between the first gear 321 and the second gear 322 is made appropriate to improve transmission efficiency, and the first gear The rotation of the movable member 310 connected to the H.321 can be made smooth.

  Furthermore, since the first gear 321 is formed by extending the flange portion 321c from the outer peripheral surface of the first main body 321a, the rigidity of the first gear 321 can be increased by the flange portion 321c. In particular, in the present embodiment, since the flange portion 321c is connected to the axial end face of the tooth 321b, the rigidity of the tooth 321b can be increased. As a result, the durability of the teeth 321b can be improved.

  Here, it is sufficient that the flange portion 321c of the first gear 321 protrudes to the mountain top side from the valley of the tooth 321b. This is because if it protrudes beyond the valleys of the teeth 321b, it can abut on the end face on the peak side of the teeth 322b of the second gear 322. Further, the material required for forming the flange portion 321c can be suppressed, and the weight can be reduced and the material cost can be reduced. However, it is preferable that the flange portion 321c projects further outward in the radial direction from the top of the tooth 321b. This is because the inclination of the first gear 321 can be more reliably suppressed.

  Note that the number of teeth of the second gear 322 is larger than the number of teeth of the first gear 321 (the number of teeth ratio is 2 in this embodiment). Accordingly, when the rotatable angle of the first effect member 442 (see FIG. 18) that is locked in the circumferential direction by the locking portion 322e of the second gear 322 is limited, the rotation of the second gear 322 is accompanied accordingly. Even if the possible angle is limited, the rotatable angle of the first gear 321 can be increased compared to the rotatable angle of the second gear 322, and as a result, the rotatable angle of the movable member 310 can be increased. Therefore, a sufficient rotation angle of the movable member 310 can be ensured.

  An assembly structure of the movable member 310 and the first gear 321 with respect to the game board 13 will be described. First, the shaft support body 311 of the movable member 310 is inserted through the insertion hole formed in the game board 13 from the front side to the rear side of the game board 13, and the locking portion 311 a of the shaft support body 311 is inserted. The shaft hole portion 321d of the first gear 321 is inserted through the retaining ring E, and the retaining ring E is fitted into the locking groove of the locking portion 311a. As a result, the movable member 310 and the first gear 321 cannot be pulled out in the front-rear direction of the game board 13, and the movable member 310 and the first gear 321 are held on the game board 13 so as to be capable of synchronous rotation.

  According to the above-described structure, when the movable member 310, the first gear 321 and the second gear 322 are assembled to the game board 13, the second gear 322 is assembled to the game board 13, and then the movable member 310 and the first gear are assembled. It can be easily assembled by assembling 321 to the game board 13. This is because when the first gear 321 is arranged on the game board 13, the movement of the second gear 322 in the front-rear direction is restricted by the flange portion 321 c of the first gear 321. This is because the first gear 321 acts. In addition, according to the present embodiment, in order to arrange all of the plurality of members of the movable member 310, the first gear 321 and the second gear 322 in the game board 13, a plurality of holdings corresponding to the number of these members are provided. It is sufficient to fit the retaining ring E into one place (the locking groove of the locking portion 311a) without using a member. That is, since the first gear 321 includes the flange portion 321c, the number of steps for assembling the movable member 310, the first gear 321 and the second gear 322 to the game board 13 is reduced, and the number of holding members is also reduced. Can do.

  Next, the first shielded device 440 through which the transmission shaft portion 322d of the second gear 322 is inserted and the lifting operation unit 400 including the first shielded device 440 will be described with reference to FIGS.

  10 and 11 are front views of the lifting operation unit 400. FIG. 10 illustrates a state where the elevating member 460 is disposed at the raised position, and FIG. 11 illustrates a state where the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position.

  As shown in FIGS. 10 and 11, the elevating operation unit 400 is formed in a structure in which the elevating member 460 slides in the vertical direction (the vertical direction in FIG. 10) on the front side of the mounting base 410. A shielded area P1 is provided on the rear side. As shown in FIG. 10, the shielded area P1 is hidden by the elevating member 460 and is not visually recognized when the elevating member 460 is disposed at the raised position, but, as shown in FIG. On the other hand, when the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position, the region is visible in the front view. Details of the mechanism by which the elevating member 460 moves up and down will be described later.

  12 is an exploded front perspective view of the lifting operation unit 400, and FIG. 13 is an exploded rear perspective view of the lifting operation unit 400.

  As shown in FIGS. 12 and 13, the lifting and lowering operation unit 400 includes a long plate-shaped mounting base 410, a driving unit 420 fastened and fixed to the right side of the rear surface of the mounting base 410, and the driving unit 420. The slide base 430 that is slid in the vertical direction (the vertical direction in FIG. 12) by the generated driving force, the first shielded device 440 that is fastened and fixed to the front side of the mounting base 410 in the front view, and the mounting base 410. A raised fastening front plate 450 that is raised and fixed at the center in the front side, a lifting member 460 that is slid up and down in a manner to accommodate the raised fastening fastening plate 450, and a slide base 430 behind the mounting base 410. And a pair of raising members 470 disposed on the left and right sides.

  The pair of raising members 470 are formed in a shape that is open in the front-rear direction, and the driving unit 420 disposed on the rear surface side of the mounting base 410 can be accommodated in the internal space of the raising member 470.

  The mounting base 410 is mainly formed of a resin material, and has a long plate-shaped main body portion 410a, a plurality of guide grooves 411 that are openings extending vertically in the main body portion 410a, and the guide grooves 411. The pinion guide groove 412 provided side by side, the rack part 413 in which a plurality of teeth are engraved as a rack gear on the side surface of the pinion guide groove 412, and the raised part 470 protrudes from the rear surface of the main body part 410 a toward the raising member 470. A plurality of (four in this embodiment) fastening portions 414 formed so that fastening screws inserted through the insertion holes of the member 470 can be fastened, and a plurality (this embodiment) drilled to the left of the main body portion 410a in front view. 2) fastening holes 415, and a regulation part 416 for aligning the first shielded device 440 fastened and fixed to the fastening holes 415.

  The guide groove 411 is a groove that guides the slide movement of the slide base 430. A plurality of (three in this embodiment) guide grooves 411 are provided in parallel, and the insertion portions 431 of the slide base 430 are inserted into the guide grooves 411, so that the posture of the slide base 430 during the sliding movement is constant. Can be kept in.

  The pinion guide groove 412 is a groove that guides the pinion gear 432b that is pivotally supported by the insertion shaft 432a of the slide base 430. In the assembled state, the pinion gear 432b is disposed on the rear surface side of the rack portion 413 and the lifting member 460. The rack portion 464 is engaged with each other, thereby forming a double rack and pinion structure. Therefore, when the slide base 430 is slid (moved up and down) with respect to the mounting base 410, the elevating member 460 is slid relative to the slide base 430 via the double rack and pinion mechanism. That is, the elevating member 460 is slid (moved up and down) with respect to the mounting base 410 while being accelerated at a speed higher than that of the slide base 430.

  The fastening portion 414 is a portion that is fastened and fixed to the raising member 470. The raising member 470 is fastened and fixed to the rear case 210 (see FIG. 7), whereby the mounting base 410 of the lifting operation unit 400 is fixed to the rear case 210.

  The restricting portion 416 is a portion that protrudes in a rectangular cross section on the front side below the left side of the attachment base 410 when viewed from the front, and functions as a work defect prevention portion when the first shielded device 440 is attached to the main body portion 410a. That is, as will be described later, since the first shielding member 441 of the first shielded device 440 is formed in a trapezoidal plate shape, the first shielding member 441 is attached to the attachment base 410 unlike a square shape whose posture is not uniquely determined. It is easy for an operator to confirm the posture of the first shielded device 440 at the time. However, there is a risk of inadvertent attachment (inverted upside down, etc.). Therefore, by assembling the first shielded device 440 along the upper wall portion of the restricting portion 416 to the main body portion 410a, the posture when the first shielded device 440 is attached can be uniquely determined. Can be prevented. Therefore, the manufacturing cost of the raising / lowering operation unit 400 can be reduced.

  The slide base 430 is a member that is disposed behind the mounting base 410 and is formed of a resin material. The slide base 430 is a quadrilateral plate-shaped main body 430a and a plurality of guides and a plurality of guides protrude from the front surface of the main body 430a. A plurality of insertion portions 431 inserted into each of the grooves 411b, a support shaft 432a protruding from the front surface of the main body portion 430a, a pinion gear 432b rotatably supported by the support shaft 432a, and a main body portion 430a And an insertion shaft 433 protruding from the rear surface.

  A plurality (three in this embodiment) of the insertion portions 431 are portions that are respectively inserted into the plurality of guide grooves 411 of the mounting base 410, and the insertion portion 431 is inserted into the guide grooves 411. The slide base 430 is positioned in the front-rear direction with respect to the mounting base 410 by being fastened with a fastening screw via a collar C as a retaining stopper from the front side. Therefore, the slide base 430 can only move in the vertical direction (the vertical direction in FIG. 12), which is the extending direction of the guide groove 411. Further, as described above, since the insertion portion 431 is inserted into each of the guide grooves 411 provided in parallel, the movement of the slide base member in the left-right direction is restricted, so that the slide base 430 is moved in the vertical direction. It is possible to keep the posture of the slide base 430 constant when moved.

  The insertion shaft 433 is inserted into the sliding hole 428 a of the rotating member 428. As will be described later, the slide base 430 is slid in the vertical direction by the rotational member 428 being rotated in the vertical direction.

  The pinion gear 432b is rotatably supported by the support shaft 432a. Further, the pinion gear 432b is inserted into the pinion guide groove 412, and the pinion gear 432b and the rack portion 413 of the mounting base 410 are engaged with each other. Therefore, when the slide base 430 is slid in the vertical direction, the pinion gear 432b is rotated, and as described above, the elevating member 460 engaged with the pinion gear 432b is slid in the vertical direction.

  The elevating member 460 has a long plate-shaped front main body portion 461 having a base in which a wide concave groove extends in the vertical direction in the center on the rear surface side and an LED or the like is disposed, and the front main body portion. A long plate-shaped rear main body portion 462 that is fastened and fixed to the rear surface side of 461, a pair of escape grooves 463 that extend downward from the upper side of the rear main body portion 462, and a pair of these escape grooves A rack portion 464 that is provided along the extending direction of one of the clearance grooves 463 (right side in the rear view) of the 463.

  The front main body portion 461 and the rear main body portion 462 are configured to be fastened and fixed so that an opening is formed on the upper side. When the elevating member 460 is disposed at the raised position, the opening elevating member 460 has a function as a space for storing the raised plate 450 so as to be held from the front and rear. In the storage state in which the raising and lowering fastening plate 450 is housed in the elevating member 460, the front main body portion 461 is disposed on the front side of the raising and fastening front plate 450, and the rear body portion 462 is disposed on the rear side of the raising and fastening fastening plate 450. Established. As a result, the posture of the elevating member 460 in the plate thickness direction can be maintained.

  That is, since the elevating member 460 has a center of gravity on the front main body 461 side on which the base or the like is disposed, a force that causes the elevating member 460 to fall to the front side works. Therefore, for example, when the elevating member 460 is formed only on the front side of the raised front plate 450, a separate holding member (such as a guide rail) is required to prevent the elevating member 460 from falling to the front side. . On the other hand, as in the present embodiment, the raised fastening front plate 450 is raised from the mounting base 410 and fastened, and the rear main body 462 is formed in the gap formed between the raised fastening fastening plate 450 and the mounting base 410. According to the configuration, while the front main body portion 461 of the elevating member 460 is disposed on the forefront of the elevating operation unit 400, the elevating member 460 is likely to fall forward while maintaining the effect of improving the effect. Even if it becomes, the rear side main-body part 462 is contact | abutted by the rear surface of the board 450 before raising fastening, and the raising / lowering member 460 can be prevented from falling forward.

  The pair of relief grooves 463 are provided with a plurality of (four in this embodiment, see FIG. 13) raised fastening portions and lifting members that protrude from the rear surface side of the raised fastening front plate 450 when the lifting member 460 moves up and down. 460 is an opening formed to prevent interference with the rear main body portion 462.

  The rear main body 462 includes a pair of side walls 462a that extend toward the front side closer to the center than the pair of escape grooves 463. In the assembled state of the lifting and lowering operation unit 400, the pair of side walls 462 a abuts the inner surfaces on the left and right sides of the raised fastening front plate 450 (left and right in FIG. 13), Prevent misalignment.

  The rack portion 464 is a portion where the pinion gear 432b of the slide base 430 is engaged with the lifting / lowering operation unit 400 in the assembled state. That is, in the assembled state, the pinion gear 432 b of the slide base 430 is engaged with both the rack portion 413 of the mounting base 410 and the rack portion 464 of the elevating member 460. In this case, the pinion gear 432b pivotally supported by the insertion shaft 432a of the slide base 430 is engaged with both the rack portion 413 of the mounting base 410 and the rack portion 464 disposed on the rear surface side of the elevating member 460. Thereby, a double rack and pinion structure is formed.

  Therefore, when the slide base 430 is slid (moved up and down) with respect to the mounting base 410, the elevating member 460 is slid relative to the slide base 430 via the double rack and pinion mechanism. That is, the elevating member 460 is slid (moved up and down) with respect to the mounting base 410 while being accelerated at a speed higher than that of the slide base 430. Here, with reference to FIG. 14, the mechanism by which the raising / lowering member 460 of the raising / lowering operation unit 400 is raised / lowered with respect to the attachment base 410 is demonstrated.

  14A and 14B are rear views of the lifting operation unit 400. FIG. FIG. 14A illustrates a state where the elevating member 460 is disposed at the raised position, and FIG. 14B illustrates a state where the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position. In FIG. 14A and FIG. 14B, the pair of raising members 470 are not shown for easy understanding.

  As shown in FIG. 14A, the lower end of the slide base 430 and the lower end of the elevating member 460 are arranged at substantially the same position in the state where the elevating member 460 is arranged at the raised position, whereas FIG. As shown in b), in a state where the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position, the lower end of the slide base 430 and the lower end of the elevating member 460 are disposed at different positions. Therefore, compared with the distance by which the elevating member 460 is moved up and down, the distance by which the slide base 430 is displaced by sliding can be suppressed. Therefore, since the range in which the rotation member 428 of the drive unit 420 that slides the slide base 430 is rotated can be suppressed, the overall structure of the drive unit 420 can be reduced in size, and the drive unit 420 can be disposed in a space-saving manner. Can do.

  In the state where the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position, the lower end of the slide base 430 and the lower end of the elevating member 460 are disposed at different positions via the double rack and pinion mechanism described above. This is because the elevating member 460 is slid (moved up and down) relative to the slide base 430. That is, the elevating member 460 is slid and moved (elevated) with respect to the mounting base 410 in a state where the elevating member 460 is accelerated than the slide base 430. Arise.

  The drive unit 420 will be described with reference to FIG. The drive unit 420 is a unit that generates a driving force for sliding (up and down) the slide base 430 (see FIG. 14) in the vertical direction (the vertical direction in FIG. 14). It is disposed on the side of the slide base 430.

  FIG. 15 is a partial rear view of the drive unit 420. In FIG. 15, the case body 421 (see FIG. 14) and the drive motor 422 (see FIG. 14) are not shown.

  As shown in FIG. 15, the drive unit 420 includes a case body 421 (see FIG. 14) and a drive motor 422 that is disposed on the rear surface side of the case body 421 and projects the drive shaft to the front surface side of the case body 421. (See FIG. 14), a pinion gear 423 fixed to the drive shaft of the drive motor 422, and a shaft shaft rotatably engaged with a rotation shaft 424a that is engaged with the pinion gear 423 and protrudes from the front surface of the case body 421. A crank gear 424, a connecting rod 425 whose one end is rotatably supported by the crank gear 424 via a rotating shaft 425a, a connecting shaft 426 protruding from the other end of the connecting rod 425, and a case A support shaft 427 protruding from the rear surface of the body 421, and a long plate-shaped rotation member 428 having an insertion hole through which the support shaft 427 and the connection shaft 426 are inserted mainly. Obtain. The drive shaft of the drive motor 422, the rotation shafts 424a and 425a, the connection shaft 426, and the support shaft 427 are arranged in parallel.

  A rotating shaft 425a that rotatably supports one end of the connecting rod 425 on the crank gear 424 is disposed at a position eccentric with respect to the rotating shaft 424a of the crank gear 424, and is connected to project from the other end of the connecting rod 425. The shaft 426 is movable only along the direction in which the rotating member 428 pivotally supported by the support shaft 427 rotates. Therefore, the crank gear 424, the rotating shaft 425a, and the connecting rod 425 constitute a crank mechanism that converts the rotational motion of the crank gear 424 into the reciprocating motion of the connecting shaft 426 via the connecting rod 425.

  That is, when the pinion gear 423 is rotated by the rotational drive of the drive motor 422 (see FIG. 14), and the crank gear 424 is rotated in one direction (for example, the direction of the arrow A1) by the rotation, the connecting shaft 426 is rotated by the rotating member 428. When the drive motor 422 is driven to rotate in the opposite direction and the crank gear 424 is rotated in the other direction (arrow A2 direction), the connecting shaft 426 is moved. And the connecting shaft 426 is moved in the other direction (arrow B2 direction) along the rotation direction of the rotating member 428. Accordingly, one end of the rotating member 428 is moved in the vertical direction, and the slide base 430 (see FIGS. 14A and 14B) can be moved in the vertical direction.

  Returning to FIG. The rotating member 428 is slid to be opened in the shape of a long hole extending in the long diameter direction at the other end opposite to one end where the shaft support hole into which the support shaft 427 (see FIG. 15) is inserted is disposed. The insertion shaft 433 that protrudes from the rear surface of the slide base 430 is inserted into the slide hole 428a. When the rotation member 428 is rotated in the vertical direction, the slide base 430 is moved up and down. Slided in the direction.

  Returning to FIG. 10 and FIG. As the slide base 430 is slid and lowered by the above-described slide mechanism, when the elevating member 460 is lowered from the raised position and disposed at the lowered position, the first shielded device 440 is placed in the shielded area P1 in the front view. The visual recognition hole 441c can be visually recognized. Here, the first shielded device 440 will be described with reference to FIGS. 16 to 18.

  FIG. 16A is a front perspective view of the first shielded device 440, and FIG. 16B is a rear perspective view of the first shielded device 440.

  As shown in FIGS. 16A and 16B, the first shielded device 440 is a device that changes the appearance of the shielded region P1, and the mounting base 410 of the lifting operation unit 400 (see FIG. 11). The first shielding member 441 fastened and fixed from the front to the left side of the front view, the first effect member 442 disposed on the rear side of the first shielding member 441, the first effect member 442 and the first shielding member And an urging spring 443 that is disposed between 441 and generates an urging force that urges the first effect member 442 to the initial position. Note that the initial position of the first effect member 442 is that the locking pin 441h to which one end of the biasing spring 443 is locked and the locking pin 442f to which the other end of the biasing spring 443 is locked are drawn. Along with this, it means a position where the first effect member 442 is stopped, and in the initial position, the biasing spring 443 is disposed in a state of being extended beyond the natural length.

  The first shielding member 441 is a member that allows the first effect member 442 to be partially visually recognized through the visual recognition hole 441c in front view. As described above, the visual recognition hole 441c is visible in the front view when the elevating member 460 of the elevating operation unit 400 is disposed at the lowered position (see FIG. 11). Here, the first shielding member 441 will be described with reference to FIG.

  FIG. 17A is a front perspective view of the first shielding member 441, and FIG. 17B is a rear perspective view of the first shielding member 441.

  As shown in FIG. 17 (a), the first shielding member 441 includes a trapezoidal plate-shaped main body 441a, an insertion hole 441b opened in the upper left side of the main body 441a, and the vicinity of the center of the main body 441a. And a visual recognition hole 441c that is opened to the main. Here, the inter-axis distance between the insertion hole 441b and the visual recognition hole 441c is formed by the inter-axis distance L1.

  As shown in FIG. 17B, the first shielding member 441 protrudes from the rear surface of the main body 441a toward the mounting base 410 (see FIG. 11) and is fastened through the fastening hole 415 of the mounting base 410. Plural (two in this embodiment) raised fastening portions 441d that can be fastened with screws, a ring-shaped fitting wall portion 441e standing from the rear surface of the main body portion 441a, and the fitting wall portion 441e A curved wall portion 441f that is a wall surface standing rearward from the rear surface of the main body portion 441a with a gap from the fitting wall portion 441e at a position opposite to the visual recognition hole 441c on the outer periphery of the outer periphery, and the curved wall portion 441f And a retaining portion 441g protruding from the standing end to the fitting wall portion 441e, and a rear side of the main body portion 441a on the opposite side of the fitting wall portion 441e through the visual recognition hole 441c. A cylindrical engaging pins 441h, mainly comprises. Here, the fitting wall portion 441e, the visual recognition hole 441c, and the locking pin 441h are arranged on a straight line.

  The first shielding member 441 is integrally molded from a resin material, and a pattern (in the present embodiment, “put it!”) Is displayed on the front surface of the main body 441a on the lower right side of the visual recognition hole 441c. A picture displayed on the main body 441a and a display 442R, 442N, 442L (see FIG. 18A) of the first effect member 442 described later may be combined to enable the player to receive a plurality of messages. it can. What kind of message can be received will be described later.

  Since the main body 441a is formed in a trapezoidal plate shape, the workability of the assembling work can be improved. That is, the trapezoidal plate shape can be uniquely grasped from the shape, unlike a square or other non-directional shape.

  Since the inner wall of the fitting wall 441e is formed to be coaxial with the insertion hole 441b, the game board 13 and the operation unit 200 are fastened and fixed, and the transmission shaft portion 322d of the second gear 322 (see FIG. 20) is provided. When inserted through the insertion hole 441b, a sufficient area of the inner peripheral surface that supports the transmission shaft portion 322d can be secured. As a result, the axis of the transmission shaft portion 322d can be stabilized, and the rotation of the second gear 322 can be stabilized.

  Here, securing the area of the inner peripheral surface of the transmission shaft portion 322d (see FIG. 20) can also be achieved by uniformly increasing the plate thickness of the main body portion 441a, but in that case, it is used. Unnecessarily many materials are required, increasing the material cost. Further, the first shielding member 441 is disposed in a limited space between the mounting base 410 and the lifting member 460 (see FIG. 10), and the first effect is provided on the rear surface side of the first shielding member 441. Since the member 442 is disposed (see FIG. 16), it is not preferable to increase the plate thickness of the main body 441a uniformly in order to secure a space for disposing the first effect member 442.

  Therefore, in the present embodiment, a structure is adopted in which the plate thickness is increased only for the fitting wall portion 441e as a portion that exhibits the function of fitting the transmission shaft portion 322d (see FIG. 20). Thereby, a sufficient space for arranging the first effect member 442 (see FIG. 16) can be secured, and the degree of freedom in designing the first effect member 442 can be improved.

  The curved wall portion 441f is curved with the fitting wall portion 441e side recessed, the inner peripheral surface is formed coaxially with the fitting wall portion 441e, and the outer diameter of the inner peripheral surface is the first effect member 442 (see FIG. 16) is slightly larger than the outer diameter of the cylindrical shaft portion 442b, and thus acts as a guide when the first effect member 442 rotates. Therefore, the first effect member 442 can be stably rotated.

  The retaining portion 441g is a portion protruding from the curved wall portion 441f toward the fitting wall portion 441e, and in the assembled state (see FIG. 16), the cylindrical shaft portion 442b of the first effect member 442 (see FIG. 16). The first effect member 442 is prevented from dropping from the first shielding member 441 by partially overlapping with the first shielding member 441, and the drop-off preventing function will be described later.

  Returning to FIG. The raising member 441d is fastened and fixed to the attachment base 410 to form a gap between the main body 441a and the attachment base 410 (see FIG. 20). The first effect member 442 is rotated within this gap.

  The first effect member 442 is disposed on the rear surface side of the first shielding member 441, and the first effect member 442 has displays 442R, 442N, and 442L (see FIG. 18) formed on the front side. Here, the first effect member 442 will be described with reference to FIGS. 18 and 19.

  18 (a) is a front perspective view of the first effect member 442, FIG. 18 (b) is a rear perspective view of the first effect member 442, and FIG. 19 is a front view of the first effect member 442. is there. In FIG. 19, a virtual straight line connecting the cylindrical shaft portion 442b and the locking pin 442f is illustrated as the center line O, and the first effect member 442 is disposed at the initial position in the assembled state (see FIG. 16). The visual recognition hole 441c of the first shielded device 440 in the state that has been made is illustrated as a virtual circle.

  As shown in FIG. 18A, the first effect member 442 includes a main body portion 442a having a fan-shaped plate shape, and a cylindrical tubular shaft portion whose outer periphery is coupled to one end of the fan shape of the main body portion 442a. 442b, and is integrally molded from a resin material.

  The cylindrical shaft portion 442b is formed in a cylindrical shape having an opening penetrating in the thickness direction of the main body portion 442a, and has a large diameter formed on the front side (front side in FIG. 18A) of the cylindrical shaft portion 442b. The hole portion 442c is connected to the center of the main body portion 442a from the large-diameter hole portion 442c coaxially with the large-diameter hole portion 442c, and the inner periphery is formed with a smaller diameter than the large-diameter hole portion 442c. A small-diameter hole portion 442d (see FIG. 20) and a connecting hole portion 442e opened in a rectangular shape on the rear surface side of the cylindrical shaft portion 442b are mainly provided.

  The outer diameter of the cylindrical shaft portion 442b is formed slightly smaller than the inner diameter of the curved wall portion 441f of the first shielding member 441 (see FIG. 16). Therefore, the cylindrical shaft portion 442b can be stored inside the curved wall portion 441f in the assembled state (see FIG. 16).

  The axial thickness of the cylindrical shaft portion 442b is formed slightly larger than the distance between the standing end of the curved wall portion 441f (the front end of the retaining portion 441g) and the standing end of the fitting wall portion 441e. The distance between the standing end of the portion 441f (the front end of the retaining portion 441g) and the rear surface of the main body portion 441a is made smaller.

  The inner diameter of the large-diameter hole 442c is slightly larger than the outer diameter of the fitting wall 441e (see FIG. 17). Therefore, in the assembled state of the first shielded device 440 (see FIG. 16), the first effect member 442 is temporarily fastened to the first shielding member 441 by fitting the large-diameter hole portion 442c to the fitting wall portion 441e. In addition, the first effect member 442 can be pivotally supported on the first shielding member 441 in a rotatable manner.

  The transmission shaft portion 322d (see FIG. 5) is inserted into the small diameter hole portion 442d in the assembled state of the game board 13 and the operation unit 200 (see FIG. 5). Further, the connecting hole portion 442e is externally fitted to the locking portion 322e (see FIG. 9) of the second gear 322 in the assembled state of the game board 13 and the operation unit 200. Therefore, since the first effect member 442 is engaged with the second gear 322 in the circumferential direction and rotated, as described above, the first effect member 442 is rotated with the rotation of the movable member 310 (see FIG. 20). ).

  Further, as shown in FIG. 18B, the first effect member 442 is on a straight line O virtually illustrated as the center line of the main body 442a (see FIG. 19), and the first shaft member 442 has a cylindrical shaft 442b. A columnar locking pin 442f is provided on the other end opposite to the one end provided, and is provided upright from the rear surface of the main body 442a. The locking pin 442f is a portion where one end of the biasing spring 443 is locked.

  As shown in FIG. 19, on the front surface of the first effect member 442, a display 442R (in the present embodiment, “right”) and a display 442N (books) each having a size that fits within the inner diameter of the viewing hole 441c of the first shielding member 441. The solid state in the embodiment) and the display 442L (in this embodiment, “extreme”) are arranged on the circumference drawn by the inter-axis distance L2 from the center point of the cylindrical shaft portion 442b, and the display 442N is the center line O. Further, the displays 442R and 442L are arranged at positions shifted from the center line O to the left and right by θ0 (equal to θ1 / 2 described later). In the present embodiment, a display 442R is shown on the right side of the center line O, and a display 442L is shown on the left side of the center line O, with the top of the display facing the cylindrical shaft portion 442b. Here, in the present embodiment, the length of the inter-axis distance L2 is set to be the same as the above-described inter-axis distance L1 (see FIG. 17) (L1 = L2).

  Therefore, in the assembled state of the first shielded device 440 (see FIG. 16), the first effect member 442 is rotated with respect to the first shield member 441 (see FIG. 16) about the cylindrical shaft portion 442b. The position of any of the indications 442R, 442N, 442L of the first effect member 442 and the visual recognition hole 441c of the first shielding member 441 can be matched, and any of the indications 442R, 442N, 442L from the visual recognition hole 441c in the front view. Can be visually recognized, and the displays 442R, 442N, and 442L visually recognized from the viewing hole 441c can be switched for each angle θ0. Therefore, the appearance of the first shielded device 440 can be changed, and the change can be clearly distinguished.

  Here, unlike the present embodiment, if the front surface of the first effect member 442 is not hidden at all by the first shielding member 441 (see FIG. 16), the pattern and display of the first effect member 442 that can be viewed in front view. Is one type if the phase difference is not distinguished. Therefore, it is difficult to grasp the change in the appearance of the first effect member 442.

  On the other hand, as in the present embodiment, the first shielding member 441 (see FIG. 16) is disposed on the front side of the first effect member 442, and the first effect member 442 is visually recognized from the viewing hole 441c of the first shielding member 441. By being formed in such a manner, the visible portion of the first effect member 442 can be changed by rotating the first effect member 442. In addition, by doing so, a plurality of types of patterns and displays can be visually recognized separately on the front surface of the first effect member 442, and the effect of the first effect member 442 can be improved. In the present embodiment, since a plurality of types of displays 442R, 442N, and 442L are formed on the front surface of the first effect member 442 so as to be separated from each other, a separate display 442R, 442N, 442L is provided for each rotation of the first effect member 442. Can be made visible.

  Returning to FIG. In the initial position shown in FIGS. 16A and 16B, the locking pin 441h and the locking pin 442f are attracted by the biasing force of the biasing spring 443, and the first effect member 442 pulls the locking pin 442f. Stop in a posture toward the locking pin 441h. That is, at the initial position, the center line O (see FIG. 19) of the first effect member 442 coincides with the straight line that connects the above-described fitting wall portion 441e, the viewing hole 441c, and the locking pin 441h. Therefore, when the front side of the first effect member 442 is visually recognized through the visual recognition hole 441c from the front side (the front side of the paper), the display 442N on the center line O of the first effect member 442 (FIG. 18A and FIG. 19) is visually recognized.

  As described above, the retaining portion 441g protrudes from the curved wall portion 441f toward the fitting wall portion 441e, and the cylindrical shaft of the first effect member 442 in the assembled state of the first shielding member 441 and the first effect member 442. It partially overlaps with the portion 442b. That is, even if an external force in a direction away from the first shielding member 441 is applied to the first effect member 442, the first effect member 442 is brought into contact with the retaining portion 441g, and further displacement is suppressed. Therefore, the first effect member 442 can be prevented from being separated from the first shielding member 441, and the first effect member 442 can be prevented from falling off the fitting wall portion 441e of the first shielding member 441.

  A method for assembling the first effect member 442 to the first shielding member 441 (making the large-diameter hole 442b appear on the fitting wall 441e) will be described. First, the first effect member 442 is approached from the rear of the first shielding member 441, and the first outer surface of the cylindrical shaft portion 442b is pressed against the retaining portion 441g from the lower side (the lower left side in FIG. 16 (b)). The first effect member 442 is slid in the up and down direction (up and down direction in FIG. 16B) with respect to the shielding member 441, the retaining portion 441g is elastically deformed, and then the fitting wall portion 441e (see FIG. 17). When the first effect member 442 is slid in the front-rear direction (plate thickness direction) with respect to the first shielding member 441 so that the large-diameter hole portion 442c (see FIG. 18) is fitted to the cylindrical shaft portion 442b, The contact with the retaining portion 441g is released, and the shape of the retaining portion 441g is elastically restored.

  According to the assembled state of the first shielded device 440, the first effect member 442 is sandwiched between the main body portion 441a and the retaining portion 441g from the front and rear directions, and the fitting wall portion 441e (see FIG. 17B). When the large-diameter hole 442c is externally fitted, the first effect member 442 is moved away from the first shielding member 441 in the front-rear direction until the external fitting of the large-diameter hole 442c with respect to the fitting wall 441e is released. As long as it is not (in this case, the first effect member 442 abuts on the retaining portion 441g and the retaining portion 441g needs to be elastically deformed), the first effect member 442 is axially moved from the first shielding member 441 ( Dropping off in the front-rear direction of FIG. 16 is restricted. Therefore, the first effect member 442 can be held with respect to the first shielding member 441. Further, the holding of the first effect member 442 with respect to the first shielding member 441 is achieved only from the shape of the first shielding member 441 and the first effect member 442, and a separate holding component can be dispensed with.

  Further, according to the above-described holding mechanism, the game board 13 and the operation unit 200 (see FIG. 5) can be easily assembled. That is, in the first shielded device 440, an urging force is generated by the urging spring 443, and the position of the first effect member 442 becomes unstable as it is. In the assembled state of the first shielded device 440 and the mounting base 410 (see FIG. 11), the first effect member 442 is sandwiched between the first shielding member 441 and the attachment base 410. In contrast, the first shielded device 440 is formed in an inaccessible state from the outside. Therefore, it is difficult to stabilize the position of the first effect member 442 relative to the first shielding member 441, and the assembly of the game board 13 and the operation unit 200 (the transmission shaft portion 322d of the second gear 322 is connected to the first effect member 442). It is difficult to pass through the small-diameter hole portion 442d).

  Therefore, in the present embodiment, the first effect member 442 is configured such that the large-diameter hole portion 442c of the first effect member 442 can be fitted onto the fitting wall portion 441e of the first shielding member 441 (see FIG. 17B). It is formed. Thereby, the position of the first effect member 442 can be stabilized with respect to the first shielding member 441. Therefore, it is possible to easily assemble the game board 13 and the operation unit 200 (see FIG. 5).

  Returning to FIG. 10 and FIG. As shown in FIGS. 10 and 11, the visual recognition hole 441c of the first shielded device 440 described above is disposed in the shielded region P1 described above.

  Here, in a gaming machine such as the pachinko machine 10, a moving member (corresponding to the lifting member 460) formed to be movable between the first position (corresponding to the raised position) and the second position (corresponding to the lowered position). And a driving means (corresponding to the drive motor 422) for generating a driving force for moving the moving member, and when the moving member is disposed at the first position, the moving member is shielded by the moving member. When the moving member is disposed at least in the second position, a shielded area (corresponding to the shielded area P1) that is visible in the front view is displayed. There is a gaming machine (see, for example, Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. 2011-182984). In the conventional gaming machine described above, only a pattern or a display is provided in the shielded area, and the ability as an effect part to draw attention to the player is low, and the shielded area is effectively used as the effect part. It was hard to say.

  On the other hand, in this embodiment, the appearance of the visual recognition hole 441c of the first shielded device 440 arranged in the shielded area P1 is changed, and as a result, the appearance of the shielded area P1 is changed. Here, with reference to FIG. 20 to FIG. 25, a change in the appearance of the first shielded device 440 in the front view caused by the movable member 310 being rotated by the collision of the sphere will be described. First, with reference to FIG. 20, it will be described that the movable member 310 and the first effect member 442 are interlocked via the first gear 321 and the second gear 322. In the description of FIG. 20, FIG. 9 is referred to as appropriate.

  FIG. 20 is a partial cross-sectional view of the game board 13, the second gear 322, and the lifting / lowering operation unit 400 taken along the line XX-XX in FIG. 2.

  As shown in FIG. 20, the transmission shaft portion 322 d of the second gear 322 that is rotatably arranged on the rear surface (right side of FIG. 20) of the game board 13 includes the insertion hole 441 b of the first shielding member 441 and the fitting wall portion. 441e is rotatably inserted, and the locking portion 322e of the second gear 322 is locked to the connection hole 442e of the first effect member 442 so as not to rotate in the circumferential direction, so that the second gear 322 is played on the game board. 13 and the first shielding member 441 are supported at both ends, and the rotation of the second gear 322 is transmitted to the first effect member 442. The second gear 322 is rotated by following the first gear 321 (see FIG. 9), and the first gear 321 is circumferentially locked to the movable member 310. As a result, the movable member 310 collides with the sphere. The first effect member 442 is rotated by being rotated.

  Returning to FIG. 9, the relationship between the rotation direction of the movable member 310 and the rotation direction of the first effect member 442 will be described. As described above, the movable member 310 and the first gear 321 are rotated in synchronization, and the second gear 322 and the first effect member 442 are rotated in synchronization (see FIG. 20).

  That is, the relationship between the rotation direction of the first gear 321 and the rotation direction of the second gear 322 is directly reflected in the relationship between the rotation direction of the movable member 310 and the rotation direction of the first effect member 442. Note that, according to the present embodiment, for example, when the first gear 321 is rotated clockwise, the second gear 322 is formed to rotate counterclockwise, so that the movable member 310 rotates in front view. The direction is opposite to the rotation direction of the first effect member 442 in the front view (see FIGS. 9 and 20).

  When the ball flowing down the front surface of the game board 13 collides with the movable member 310 and the movable member 310 is rotated, the first gear 321 is rotated in the same phase as the movable member 310, and the first gear 321 is rotated. When the rotational force of the gear 321 is transmitted to the second gear 322, the second gear 322 is decelerated by the reduction ratio (in this embodiment, the reduction ratio is 2) and rotated, and the first effect member 442 is rotated. The second gear 322 is rotated in the same phase. Accordingly, the first effect member 442 rotates in a different manner depending on how the sphere flowing down the front surface of the game board 13 collides with the movable member 310, so that the irregular direction depends on the irregularity of the sphere. The first effect member 442 is rotated at speed and frequency.

  Here, the irregularity of the ball means that the ball flows down while colliding with a nail arranged on the game board 13, and that the ball flows down irregularly and changing its direction and speed, and all the balls are movable. Since it does not collide with the member 310, it means that the frequency of collision between the sphere and the movable member 310 also changes irregularly.

  Next, with reference to FIG. 21 to FIG. 25, changes in the appearance of the first shielded device 440 in the front view caused by the movable member 310 being rotated by the sphere will be described. In the description of FIGS. 21 to 25, FIG. 9 is referred to as appropriate.

  21A is a front view of the movable member 310, FIG. 21B is a rear view of the first shielded device 440, and FIG. 21C is a front view of the first shielded device 440. FIG. FIG. 21A illustrates a state where the movable member 310 is disposed at the initial position, and FIGS. 21B and 21C illustrate a state where the first effect member 442 is disposed at the initial position. Is done.

  Note that arrows A to C in FIG. 21A illustrate the flow path of a sphere that collides with the movable member 310 as an example, and are not intended to limit the flow path of the sphere. Further, the arrow A and the arrow C are arranged at the left and right ends of the movable member 310, respectively, and the arrow B is arranged closer to the center side (the shaft support body 311 side) of the movable member 310 than the arrow A.

  In addition, the initial position in FIGS. 21A to 21C is synonymous with the initial position of the first effect member 442 described above, and in this case, the movable member 310 is stopped. 21 (a) to 21 (c) show a state in which the game board 13 and the operation unit 200 are fastened and fixed, respectively (see FIG. 20), and the game board 13, the first gear 321 and the second Illustration of the gear 322 and the like is omitted. The same applies to FIGS. 22 to 25 described later.

  As shown in FIG. 21A, in the movable member 310, one wing portion 312c among the three wing portions 312a to 312c is arranged in the vertical downward direction of the pivot main body 311 in the initial position.

  As shown in FIG. 21 (b), the first effect member 442 has an urging force of the urging spring 443 when the locking pin 442f of the first effect member 442 and the locking pin 441h of the first shielding member 441 are in the initial position. As a result, the posture of the first effect member 442 is determined, and the center line O of the first effect member 442 is disposed so as to pass through the locking pin 441 h of the first shielding member 441.

  As shown in FIG. 21 (c), the first shielded device 440 can visually recognize the display 442N displayed on the front surface of the first effect member 442 through the visual recognition hole 441c at the initial position.

  The movable member 310 is rotated from the initial position shown in FIG. 21A by being collided with a sphere that flows down along the arrow C from the arrow A exemplified as the path, and the first effect member 442 is accompanied with the rotation. Is rotated so that the display visually recognized from the visual recognition hole 441c is switched.

  22 (a) is a front view of the movable member 310, FIG. 22 (b) is a rear view of the first shielded device 440, and FIG. 22 (c) is a front view of the first shielded device 440. FIG. 22A shows a state in which the movable member 310 is rotated by the collision of the sphere with the movable member 310 along the path indicated by the arrow A in FIG. 21A, and FIGS. In (c), the state where the 1st production member 442 was rotated with the rotation of the movable member 310 is illustrated.

  As shown in FIG. 22A, when a sphere collides with the movable member 310 in the path of arrow A (a direction in which the movable member 310 is rotated counterclockwise in the vicinity of one end of the wing member 312a), the movement of the sphere The energy is transmitted to the movable member 310, and the movable member 310 is rotated by θ1 counterclockwise when viewed from the front from the initial position. The first gear 321 is rotated with the rotation of the movable member 310, and the second gear 322 is decelerated by a reduction ratio (in this embodiment, the reduction ratio is 2) with the rotation of the first gear 321, thereby moving the movable member. It is rotated in the direction opposite to the rotation direction of 310 (see FIG. 9). In other words, as in the present embodiment, when the reduction ratio is 2, the first effect member 442 that is locked in the circumferential direction by the second gear 322 is rotated θ1 / 2 clockwise from the initial position in front view. In this embodiment, θ1 / 2 is set equal to θ0 described above (θ1 / 2 = θ0).

  As shown in FIG. 22B, when the first effect member 442 is rotated θ1 / 2 from the initial position in the clockwise direction in the front view (counterclockwise in the rear view), the first effect member 442 is brought into the curved wall portion 441f. Abutted and further rotation is restricted. Further, the urging spring 443 is pulled along with the rotation of the first effect member 442, and an urging force acts in a direction in which the first effect member 442 is pulled back to the initial position. Therefore, when the ball does not collide with the movable member 310 again, the first effect member 442 is returned to the initial position (see FIG. 21B) by the biasing force of the biasing spring 443.

  As shown in FIG. 22C, when the first effect member 442 is rotated by θ1 / 2 in the clockwise direction when viewed from the front, the portion of the first effect member 442 that is visible from the viewing hole 441c of the first shielding member 441 is displayed. Changed. That is, when the first effect member 442 is rotated by θ1 / 2 clockwise around the cylindrical shaft portion 442b, the display 442R can be visually recognized from the visual recognition hole 441c (see FIG. 19). Therefore, in the front view of the first shielded device 440, the display 442R (“right” in the present embodiment) and the front of the first shielding member 441 are displayed below the right side of the viewing hole 441c. Since the characters “hit!” Are visually recognized at the same time, the player who visually recognizes the first shielded device 440 can receive the message “hit right”.

  That is, when the ball collides with the right side of the movable member 310, the subsequent flow path of the ball branches, and the winning probability is improved, the current situation is that the ball collides with the left side of the movable member 310. However, it can be notified to the player using the display 442R of the first effect member 442 that it is more advantageous for the player to hit to the right. For example, only when the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position (when the visual recognition hole 441c is visible, refer to FIG. 11), the setting that the winning probability is improved by the ball colliding with the right side of the movable member 310 is adopted. By doing so, it is possible to recommend that the player who visually recognizes the visual recognition hole 441c aim at the right side of the movable member 310. Thereby, a player's attention can be attracted to the shielded area P1 where the visual recognition hole 441c is arranged, and the attention of the shielded area P1 can be improved.

  In the present embodiment, since the movable member 310 is a windmill, one of the windmills provided on the game board 13 can be used (see FIG. 2). Therefore, an increase in product cost can be prevented even when used as the movable member 310, and the rotation of the movable member 310 itself and the rotation of the first effect member 442 can be related in appearance, thereby producing an effect. Can be increased.

  23A is a front view of the movable member 310, FIG. 23B is a rear view of the first shielded device 440, and FIG. 23C is a front view of the first shielded device 440. FIG. In FIG. 23A, the state in which the movable member 310 is rotated by the collision of the sphere with the movable member 310 along the path indicated by the arrow C in FIG. 21A is illustrated, and FIGS. In (c), the state where the 1st production member 442 was rotated with the rotation of the movable member 310 is illustrated.

  As shown in FIG. 23A, when the sphere collides with the movable member 310 in the path indicated by the arrow C (the direction in which the movable member 310 is rotated clockwise in the vicinity of one end of the wing member 312b), the kinetic energy of the sphere Is transmitted to the movable member 310, and the movable member 310 is rotated by θ1 clockwise from the initial position in front view. The first gear 321 is rotated along with the rotation of the movable member 310, and the second gear 322 is decelerated by the gear ratio along with the rotation of the first gear 321 and rotated in the direction opposite to the rotation direction of the movable member 310. (See FIG. 9). That is, as described above, since the reduction ratio is 2 in the present embodiment, the first effect member 442 locked to the second gear 322 is θ1 / 2 counterclockwise from the initial position (clockwise in the rear view). It is rotated (θ1 / 2 = θ0).

  As shown in FIG. 23B, when the first effect member 442 is rotated by θ1 / 2 from the initial position counterclockwise in the front view (clockwise in the rear view), the first effect member 442 is moved to the curved wall portion 441f. The first effect member 442 is restricted from further rotation. Further, the urging spring 443 is pulled with the rotation of the first effect member 442, and an urging force is generated in a direction in which the first effect member 442 is pulled back to the initial position. Therefore, when the ball does not collide with the movable member 310 again, the first effect member 442 is returned to the initial position (see FIG. 21B) by the biasing force of the biasing spring 443.

  As shown in FIG. 23C, when the first effect member 442 is rotated by θ1 / 2 counterclockwise when viewed from the front, the portion of the first effect member 442 that is visible from the viewing hole 441 c of the first shielding member 441. Changes. That is, when the first effect member 442 is rotated by θ1 / 2 counterclockwise around the cylindrical shaft portion 442b, the display 442L can be viewed from the viewing hole 441c (see FIG. 19, θ1 / 2). = Θ0). Therefore, the appearance of the first shielded device 440 in front view is displayed on the front side of the first shielding member 441 and on the lower right side of the viewing hole 441c. Since the characters “hit!” Are visually recognized at the same time, the player who visually recognizes the first shielded device 440 can receive the message “hit hard”.

  That is, when the subsequent flow path of the ball branches by colliding with the right side of the movable member 310 and the winning probability is improved, the ball is collided with the right side of the movable member 310 at present, so It can be notified to the player by using the display 442L of the first effect member 442 that it is advantageous for the player to hit it vigorously with the strength of. For example, only when the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position (when the visual recognition hole 441c is visible, refer to FIG. 11), the setting that the winning probability is improved by the ball colliding with the right side of the movable member 310 is adopted. By doing so, it is possible to recommend that the player who visually recognizes the visual recognition hole 441c aim at the right side of the movable member 310. Thereby, a player's attention can be attracted to the shielded area P1 where the visual recognition hole 441c is arranged, and the attention of the shielded area P1 can be improved.

  So far, the case where the rotation angle of the first effect member 442 is θ1 / 2 has been described (θ1 / 2 = θ0), but in the following, the first effect member 442 has an angle smaller than θ1 / 2. The case where it is rotated by θ2 / 2 will be described.

  24 (a) is a front view of the movable member 310, FIG. 24 (b) is a rear view of the first shielded device 440, and FIG. 24 (c) is a front view of the first shielded device 440. FIG. 24A shows a state where the movable member 310 is rotated by the collision of the sphere with the movable member 310 along the path indicated by the arrow B in FIG. 21A, and FIGS. In (c), the state where the 1st production member 442 was rotated with the rotation of the movable member 310 is illustrated.

  As shown in FIG. 24A, when the sphere collides with the movable member 310 along the path of arrow B, the kinetic energy of the sphere is transmitted to the movable member 310, but the sphere moves at the same speed along the path of arrow A. Since the distance from the pivot support body 311 to the ball collision position is short compared to the case of collision with the ball 310, the rotational torque generated in the movable member 310 due to the ball collision is small. Therefore, the movable member 310 is rotated by θ2 (<θ1) counterclockwise from the initial position. The first gear 321 is rotated along with the rotation of the movable member 310, and the second gear 322 is decelerated by the reduction ratio along with the rotation and rotated in the direction opposite to the rotation direction of the movable member 310 (see FIG. 9). ). That is, as described above, when the reduction ratio is 2, the first effect member 442 is rotated θ2 / 2 (<θ1 / 2 = θ0) clockwise from the initial position in front view.

  As shown in FIG. 24B, even if the first effect member 442 is rotated θ2 / 2 from the initial position in the clockwise direction in the front view (counterclockwise in the rear view), the first effect member 442 and the curved wall portion 441f There is a gap between them, and the first effect member 442 leaves room for rotation in the same direction. Further, the urging spring 443 is pulled with the rotation of the first effect member 442, and an urging force is generated in a direction in which the first effect member 442 is pulled back to the initial position. Therefore, when the ball does not collide with the movable member 310 again, the first effect member 442 is returned to the initial position (see FIG. 21B) by the biasing force of the biasing spring 443.

  As shown in FIG. 24 (c), when the first effect member 442 is rotated by θ2 / 2 (<θ1 / 2) in the clockwise direction when viewed from the front, the first visible member 441c visible from the viewing hole 441c of the first shielding member 441 is visible. The portion of the effect member 442 is changed. That is, when the first effect member 442 is rotated by θ2 / 2 (<θ1 / 2) clockwise around the cylindrical shaft portion 442b, the right side of the display 442R is from the viewing hole 441c of the first shielding member 441. A partially missing display can be visually recognized (see FIG. 19). For this reason, in the front view of the first shielded device 440, a display in which the right side of the display 442R is partially missing is visually recognized, so that the player is interested in the viewing hole 441c, and the first object to be shielded is displayed. The shield device 440 can draw the player's attention.

  Here, the magnitude of the rotation angle of the first effect member 442 is changed in accordance with the magnitude of the rotation angle of the movable member 310. In this embodiment, the rotation of the movable member 310 and the first effect member 442 is changed. This is because the rotation is synchronized with the rotation of the first gear 321 and the second gear 322 engaged with each other. In other words, this is because the speed ratio between the rotation speed of the movable member 310 and the rotation speed of the first effect member 442 is constant. As a result, it is possible to ensure that the movable member 310 rotates irregularly due to the collision of the sphere having irregularity, and the rotation of the first effect member 442 becomes irregular accordingly.

  That is, when the speed ratio between the rotation speed of the movable member 310 and the rotation speed of the first effect member 442 is indefinite, for example, the rotation speed is related to the magnitude of the rotation speed of the movable member 310. While the rotational speed of the member 442 may change, the rotational speed of the first effect member 442 may not correspond to the rotational speed of the movable member 310. Here, in the former case, the irregularity of the sphere is transmitted to the first effect member 442, but in the latter case, the speed of the sphere is averaged, and the irregularity of the sphere becomes the first effect member. 442 may be difficult to appear.

  On the other hand, according to the present embodiment, the speed ratio between the rotation speed of the movable member 310 and the rotation speed of the first effect member 442 is made constant by the intervening first gear 321 and second gear 322 (see FIG. 9). Therefore, when the rotation speed of the movable member 310 is low, the rotation speed of the first effect member 442 is low, and when the rotation speed of the movable member 310 is high, the rotation speed of the first effect member 442 is high. Only formed. Therefore, it can be ensured that the movable member 310 rotates irregularly due to the collision of the sphere having irregularity, and accordingly the rotation of the first effect member 442 becomes irregular.

  The movable member 310 is disposed so as to be rotatable in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions with respect to the game board 13, and the rotation direction of the movable member 310 is irregular depending on how the ball collides with the movable member 310. Therefore, the irregularity of the sphere can be reflected in the rotation operation of the first effect member 442. Here, with reference to FIG. 25, the irregularity of the rotation operation of the first effect member 442 will be additionally described.

  FIG. 25A is a front view of the movable member 310, and FIG. 25B is a rear view of the first shielded device 440. FIG. 25A shows the movable member 310 in a position where it is rotated slightly counterclockwise from the initial position by θ1 in the front view and then slightly returned, and FIG. 25B shows the first member. The first shielded device 440 is shown in a state in which the effect member 442 is slightly returned after being rotated counterclockwise by θ1 / 2 from the initial position in the rear view.

  25 (a) and 25 (b) illustrate arrows Fa1 and Fa2 as examples of the direction of the force generated when a sphere collides with the movable member 310 (the arrows Fa1 and Fa2 are the same). Set to size). In FIG. 25B, the angle at which the first effect member 442 is rotated by the collision of the sphere with the movable member 310 and the force of the arrow Fa1 acting on the movable member 310 is illustrated as θa1 and is movable. The angle at which the first effect member 442 is rotated by the collision of the sphere with the member 310 and the action of the arrow Fa2 on the movable member 310 is shown as θa2.

  Here, when the first effect member 442 is rotated as the movable member 310 is rotated, an urging force is generated from the urging spring 443 in a direction to return the first effect member 442 to the initial position. When the force indicated by the arrow Fa1 is generated in the movable member 310, the force indicated by the arrow Fa1 is countered with the biasing force of the biasing spring 443, so that the rotational torque is suppressed. Therefore, the rotation angle of the first effect member 442 Θa1 is suppressed.

  On the other hand, when the force of the arrow Fa2 is generated in the movable member 310, the force of the arrow Fa2 is directed in the same direction as the biasing force of the biasing spring 443. θa2 is larger than θa1 (θa2> θa1).

  According to this, when a force acts in the direction in which the rotated movable member 310 is further rotated (for example, when the sphere continuously collides with the same position of the movable member 310 from the same direction), the first effect member 442 is provided. Is more difficult to rotate, and when the rotated movable member 310 is rotated in the reverse direction (for example, when the ball collides alternately with the left and right positions of the movable member 310), the biasing spring 443 is attached. Since the power works supplementarily, the first effect member 442 is easily rotated. Further, since the urging force increases as the rotation angle of the first effect member 442 increases, the difference in ease of rotation in the rotation direction of the first effect member 442 is caused as the first effect member 442 is moved away from the initial position. Become prominent.

  That is, the first shielded device 440 includes a biasing spring 443 that biases the first effect member 442 toward the initial position, and the biasing spring 443 increases as the first effect member 442 is moved away from the initial position. Therefore, depending on the difference between the rotational force of the movable member 442 and the urging force of the urging spring 443, the first effect member 442 can be rotated differently. Therefore, it is possible to ensure irregularity in how the first effect member 442 rotates with respect to the first shielding member 441.

  Next, a second embodiment will be described with reference to FIGS. In the first embodiment, as illustrated in FIG. 11, the case where the first shielded device 440 is visually recognized in the shielded region P1 when the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position has been described. In the lifting / lowering operation unit 2400 (see FIG. 26), a case where the second shielded device 2450 is visually recognized in the shielded region P1 (see FIG. 27) will be described. The second shielded device 2450 is disposed at the position where the raised fastening plate 450 is disposed in the first embodiment, and the same parts as those in the first embodiment are denoted by the same reference numerals, Description is omitted.

  FIG.26 and FIG.27 is a front view of the raising / lowering operation unit 2400 in 2nd Embodiment. FIG. 26 illustrates a state where the elevating member 460 is disposed at the raised position, and FIG. 27 illustrates a state where the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position.

  As shown in FIGS. 26 and 27, the lifting operation unit 2400 is formed in a structure in which the lifting member 460 slides in the vertical direction (the vertical direction in FIG. 26) on the front side of the mounting base 410. A shielded area P1 is provided on the rear side. As shown in FIG. 26, the shielded area P1 is hidden by the elevating member 460 and is not visually recognized when the elevating member 460 is disposed at the raised position. On the other hand, as shown in FIG. When the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position with respect to 410, this is an area that is visible in front view.

  Here, in a gaming machine such as the pachinko machine 10, a moving member (corresponding to the lifting member 460) formed to be movable between the first position (corresponding to the raised position) and the second position (corresponding to the lowered position). And a driving means for generating a driving force for moving the moving member (corresponding to the drive motor 422, see FIG. 12), and when the moving member is disposed at the first position, When the moving member is disposed at least in the second position by being shielded, the shielded region (shielded region P1) is a region that is visible in the front view. (For example, refer to JP 2011-182984 A). However, in the conventional gaming machine described above, only a pattern or a display is provided in the shielded area, and the ability as an effect part to draw attention to the player is low, and the shielded area is effectively used as an effect part. It was hard to say.

  On the other hand, in this embodiment, as will be described later, the second shielded device 2450 arranged in the shielded region P1 (see FIG. 27) is formed so that the appearance is changed. That is, when the elevating member 460 is placed at the lowered position and the shielded area P1 becomes visible, the appearance of the shielded area P1 is improved by changing the appearance of the shielded area P1, The shielded area P1 can be effectively used as a production part. Here, the detail of the 2nd to-be-shielded apparatus 2450 is demonstrated with reference to FIGS. 28-30.

  28 (a) is a front perspective view of the second shielded device 2450, FIG. 28 (b) is a rear perspective view of the second shielded device 2450, and FIG. 29 is a perspective view of FIG. 28 (a). It is a side view of the 2nd to-be-shielded apparatus 2450 in the arrow XXIX direction view.

  As shown in FIGS. 28A and 28B, the second shielded device 2450 is fastened and fixed to the front side of the mounting base 410 (see FIG. 26) and the elevating member 460 is moved downward. The second shielding member 2451 having a quadrangular plate shape and a long plate shape that is raised and fastened to the rear left side of the second shielding member 2451 when viewed from the front. An intermediate plate member 2452, a pendulum-like second effect member 2453 disposed in a gap formed by the second shielding member 2451 and the intermediate plate member 2452, and a torsion spring that generates an urging force for moving the second effect member 2453 And a biasing spring 2454 (see FIG. 30B).

  The second shielding member 2451 is formed of a resin material, and has a rectangular plate-shaped main body portion 2451a, a right-side plate portion 2451b that is offset and extended rearward to the right side of the main body portion 2451a, and a main body portion 2451a. A left side plate portion 2451c extending to the left side when viewed from the front side, a viewing hole 2451d opened to the left side when viewed from the front side of the main body portion 2451a, and a mounting base 410 from the rear surface of the right side plate portion 2451b and the left side plate portion 2451c (see FIG. 26). ) And a plurality of (four in this embodiment) raised fastening portions 2451e that are formed so as to be fastened and that are protruded from the left side plate portion 2451c. A seat portion 2451f (see FIG. 29) formed with an enlarged diameter on the base end side of the raised fastening portion 2451e, and a rear surface from the rear surface of the left plate portion 2451c. The second shielding member 2451 and the intermediate plate member 2452 can be fastened by protruding toward the plate member 2452 and by inserting a fastening screw through the insertion hole 2452c (see FIG. 30A) of the intermediate plate member 2452. And a plurality (two in this embodiment) of fastening portions 2451g (see FIG. 29).

  The main body 2451a is a portion that can be visually recognized when the elevating member 460 (see FIG. 27) is disposed at the lowered position, and a display and a pattern are formed on the front surface. In the present embodiment, as shown in FIG. 28A, a “one eye daruma” that matches the position of the visual recognition hole 2451d with the eye position is displayed.

  The visual hole 2451d is a through hole formed with an inner diameter substantially equal to the outer diameter of the display portion 2453c of the second effect member 2453. In the process in which the elevating member 460 (see FIG. 27) is lowered, When the restriction on the effect member 2453 is released and the second effect member 2453 is moved, an opening is made at a location overlapping the display portion 2453c of the second effect member 2453 in front view (see FIG. 34). Therefore, when the restriction to the second effect member 2453 by the elevating member 460 is released and the second effect member 2453 is moved, the display portion 2453c of the second effect member 2453 can be visually recognized through the visual recognition hole 2451d. In other words, the appearance of the second shielded device 2450 can be changed according to the arrangement position of the elevating member 460, and as a result, the appearance of the shielded region P1 (see FIG. 27) can be changed.

  As shown in FIGS. 28B and 29, the intermediate plate member 2452 is made of a resin material and has a long plate-shaped main body portion 2452a and a pair of insertion holes 2452b formed in the main body portion 2452a. A pair of fastening holes 2452c (see FIG. 30A) drilled in the main body portion 2452a at locations different from the pair of insertion holes 2452b, and a support shaft protruding rearward from the vicinity of the center of the main body portion 2452a 2452d and a fixing claw 2452e (see FIG. 30) protruding to the rear side of the main body 2452a are mainly provided. The support shaft 2452d is formed in a shape in which a cylindrical shape is divided in half in the radial direction (vertical direction in FIG. 30A) (see FIG. 30A).

  The diameter of the insertion hole 2452b is slightly larger than the diameter of the raised fastening portion 2451e and slightly smaller than the seat portion 2451f, and the fastening hole 2452c (see FIG. 30A) is the fastening portion of the second shielding member 2451 in the assembled state. It is drilled at a position corresponding to 2451g. Therefore, in the assembled state, the intermediate plate member 2452 has the insertion hole 2452b and the periphery thereof placed on the seat portion 2451f of the second shielding member 2451, and the fastening portion of the second shielding member 2451 through the fastening hole 2452c of the intermediate plate member 2452. Fastened to 2451g with fastening screws.

  In the assembled state of the second shielded device 2450, the second effect member 2453 can rotate in a gap (see FIG. 29) formed by the height of the seat portion 2451f between the second shield member 2451 and the intermediate plate member 2452. It is arranged. The second effect member 2453 is restricted by the side wall 462a of the elevating member 460 (see FIG. 32) when the elevating member 460 (see FIG. 27) is disposed at the raised position, but in the process of lowering the elevating member 460, When the restriction on the side wall 462a is released, the side wall 462a is rotated by the urging force of the urging spring 2454, and the display portion 2453c of the second effect member 2453 can be viewed through the viewing hole 2451d (see FIG. 34). Therefore, the appearance of the shielded region P1 can be changed in the process of moving the elevating member 460. Here, with reference to FIG. 30, the arrangement | positioning which the 2nd effect member 2453 and the 2nd effect member 2453 take with respect to the intermediate | middle board member 2452 is demonstrated.

  30 (a) and 30 (b) are front views of the intermediate plate member 2452, the second effect member 2453, and the biasing spring 2454, and FIG. 30 (c) is in the direction of arrow XXXc in FIG. 30 (a). FIG. 48 is a side view of the intermediate plate member 2452, the second effect member 2453, and the urging spring 2454 when viewed. 30A shows a state in which the elevating member 460 is disposed at the raised position and the second effect member 2453 is restricted from rotating, and FIG. 30B shows the restriction by the elevating member 460 being released. The state where the second effect member 2453 is arranged at the position after being rotated by the biasing force of the biasing spring 2454 is shown.

  As shown in FIG. 30 (a), the second effect member 2453 is made of a resin material, and has a long plate-shaped main body 2453a, and a shaft support hole 2453b that is formed at one end of the main body 2453a. A disc-shaped display portion 2453c disposed at the other end opposite to the one end where the shaft support hole 2453b is formed, and protrudes toward the rear (front side on the paper surface) substantially at the center of the main body portion 2453a. A fixing claw 2453d.

  The dimension in the thickness direction of the main body 2453a is formed smaller than the protruding height of the support shaft 2452d of the intermediate plate member 2452, and the inner diameter of the shaft support hole 2453b of the second effect member 2453 is larger than the diameter of the support shaft 2452d of the intermediate plate member 2452. Slightly larger. The second effect member 2453 is rotatably supported by the intermediate plate member 2452 by inserting the shaft support hole 2453b through the support shaft 2452d (see FIG. 30C). In this case, since the support shaft 2452d is formed to be divided in the radial direction, for example, even if the inner diameter of the shaft support hole 2453b of the second effect member 2453 is formed small (even if a dimensional error from the design dimension occurs). Since the support shaft 2452d is deformed inward in the radial direction, the dimensional error of the shaft support hole 2453b can be absorbed, so that the assembly failure of the second effect member 2453 with respect to the intermediate plate member 2452 can be reduced.

  The biasing spring 2454 is held at one end of the support shaft 2452d, one arm portion is fixed to the fixing claw 2452e of the intermediate plate member 2452, and the other arm portion on the opposite side of the one arm portion is the second effect member. The fixing claw 2453d of 2453 is fixed.

  When the elevating member 460 is disposed at the raised position, the second effect member 2453 is pushed back to the side wall 462a of the elevating member 460 and is disposed at the position shown in FIG. 30 (a) (see FIG. 32). On the other hand, when the restriction by the side wall 462a of the elevating member 460 is released (see FIG. 34), the second effect member 2453 is pressed by the fixing claw 2453d by the urging force (elastic recovery force) of the urging spring 2454. It is rotated to the arrangement shown in FIG. In the arrangement shown in FIG. 30B, as described above, the display portion 2453c of the second effect member 2453 can be viewed through the visual recognition hole 2451d of the second shielding member 2451 (see FIG. 35). In this embodiment, when the restriction by the side wall 460a of the elevating member 460 described above is released, the second effect member 2453 is turned to the rotation end point (the display portion 2453c of the second effect member 2453 is visually recognized by the second shielding member 2451). The second effect member 2453 and the elevating member 460 are in contact with each other until the arrangement shown in FIG. 30B is reached (the spring constant of the biasing spring 2454). Is large enough).

  A display and a pattern are formed on the front surface of the display portion 2453c. In the present embodiment, a black circular shape that becomes a “daruma eye” is formed. The second effect member 2453 is rotated about the support shaft 2452d of the intermediate plate member 2452, and the display unit 2453c is moved, so that the display unit passes through the visual recognition hole 2451d of the second shielding member 2451 (see FIG. 28A). The “daruma eyes” formed on the 2453c are visible (see FIG. 31A). At this time, in this embodiment, both the “one-eye daruma” displayed on the front surface of the second shielding member 2451 and the “daruma-eye” displayed on the front surface of the display portion 2453c viewed through the viewing hole 2451d. It is possible to visually recognize the “dharma of both eyes”.

  Next, with reference to FIGS. 31 to 35, changes that occur in the appearance of the second shielded device 2450 disposed in the shielded region P1 due to the lifting and lowering operation of the lifting member 460 will be described.

  FIG. 31A is a front perspective view of the lifting member 460 and the second shielded device 2450, and FIG. 31B is a rear perspective view of the lifting member 460 and the second shielded device 2450. FIGS. 31A and 31B show a state in which the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position.

  As shown in FIG. 31 (a), when the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position, the “one-eyed daruma” displayed on the front surface of the main body 2451a of the second shielded device 2450 is visually recognized through the visual recognition hole 2451d. Since the “daruma eyes” displayed on the front surface of the display unit 2453c of the second effect member 2453 are simultaneously viewed, the “daruma eyes of both eyes” are visually recognized on the front surface of the second shielded device 2450.

  As shown in FIG. 31 (b), the pair of side walls 462a of the elevating member 460 includes a side surface of the right side plate portion 2451b corresponding to the left and right inner surfaces of the rear surface side of the second shielded device 2450 while the elevating member 460 is moving. The intermediate plate member 2452 is in contact with the side surface thereof. Therefore, in the lifting / lowering operation of the lifting / lowering member 460, the lifting / lowering member 460 can be restricted from moving in the left-right direction in FIG. 31 (b) with respect to the second shielded device 2450.

  FIG. 32A is a front view of the elevating member 460 and the second shielded device 2450, and FIG. 32B is a rear view of the elevating member 460 and the second shielded device 2450. 32A and 32B illustrate a state in which the elevating member 460 is disposed at the raised position, and FIG. 32B illustrates the second effect member 2453 by a broken line.

  As shown in FIG. 32A, in a state where the elevating member 460 is disposed at the raised position, the second shielded device 2450 is housed in the elevating member 460 and cannot be seen. As shown in FIG. 32 (b), in the state where the elevating member 460 is disposed at the raised position, the second effect member 2453 is brought into contact with the side wall 462a of the elevating member 460 and its rotation is restricted.

  33A is a front view of the elevating member 460 and the second shielded device 2450, and FIG. 33B is a rear view of the elevating member 460 and the second shielded device 2450. 33 (a) and 33 (b) illustrate a state in which the elevating member 460 is disposed in the middle of the raised position and the lowered position, and FIG. 33 (b) illustrates the second effect member. 2453 is illustrated by a broken line.

  As shown in FIG. 33 (a), in the state in which the elevating member 460 is disposed in the middle of the ascending position and the descending position, the viewing hole 2451d of the second shielded device 2450 is visually recognized in front view. The display portion 2453c of the second effect member 2453 is not visually recognized through the visual recognition hole 2451d. 33 (b), the contact between the side wall 462a of the elevating member 460 and the display portion 2453c of the second effect member 2453 is released, and the second effect member 2453 starts to rotate, but the main body still remains The portion 2453a is in contact with the side wall 462a, and the second effect member 2453 is restricted from rotating. As a result, the second effect member 2453 does not rotate until the display portion 2453c is disposed at the position of the visual hole 2451d, and the visual hole of the second shielded device 2450 in the front view as shown in FIG. The display portion 2453c is not visually recognized from 2451d. That is, in the process in which the elevating member 460 is lowered from the raised position to the intermediate position illustrated in FIG. 33A, the appearance of the second shielded device 2450 does not change.

  FIG. 34A is a front view of the elevating member 460 and the second shielded device 2450, and FIG. 34B is a rear view of the elevating member 460 and the second shielded device 2450. 34 (a) and 34 (b) show a state in which the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position, and FIG. 32 (b) is hidden by the intermediate plate member 2452 of the second effect member 2453. The portion to be shown is shown by a broken line.

  As shown in FIG. 34A, in the state where the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position, the display portion 2453c of the second effect member 2453 is visually recognized through the visual recognition hole 2451d of the second shielded device 2450. As shown in FIG. 34B, in the state where the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position, the side wall 462a of the elevating member 460 is not in contact with the second effect member 2453, and the second effect member 2453 is an urging spring. It is rotated by the urging force of 2454 (see FIG. 30), and the visual recognition hole 2451d and the display portion 2453c of the second effect member 2453 overlap in the front-rear direction at the position after the rotation. That is, as shown in FIG. 34A, the display portion 2453c of the second effect member 2453 is visually recognized through the viewing hole 2451d of the second shielded device 2450.

  Therefore, in the process in which the elevating member 460 is lowered from the intermediate position illustrated in FIG. 33A to the lowered position, the appearance of the second shielded device 2450 is changed. In the present embodiment, the appearance of displaying a “one-eyed daruma” in which the front surface (for example, a flat display of a white background) of the mounting base 410 (see FIG. 27) is visually recognized from the visual recognition hole 2451d of the second shielding member 2451 ( 35 (a)), the restriction by the side wall 462a with respect to the rotation of the second effect member 2453 is released, the second effect member 2453 is rotated, and the display of the second effect member 2453 from the viewing hole 2451d of the second shielding member 2451. The appearance can be changed depending on the appearance of “both eyes” (see FIG. 35B) where the black circular shape displayed on the portion 2453c is visually recognized.

  “Daruma of both eyes” is not visually recognized until the elevating member 460 is disposed at the lowered position, but is visually recognized when the restriction on the second effect member 2453 by the side wall 462a of the elevating member 460 is released. Is done. Therefore, when the setting for changing the gaming state is adopted while the elevating member 460 is moving from the raised position to the lowered position, it can be used as a mark for the player to confirm the change in the gaming state.

  For example, when the setting that the number of prize balls is increased at a predetermined timing while the lifting member 460 is moved from the raised position to the lowered position is adopted, the lifting member 460 is used to confirm the timing of the increase of the number of prize balls. When it is visually recognized, it is necessary to store the position of the elevating member 460 at the timing of the increase.

  On the other hand, in this embodiment, if the increase timing is set to be the same as the timing at which the display portion 2453c of the second effect member 2453 becomes visible through the visual recognition hole 2451d of the second shielded device 2450, the player It can be confirmed that the gaming state has changed to a state in which the number of prize balls is increased when the “both eyes” is visually recognized on the front surface of the second shielded device 2450. Therefore, the player can be focused on the second shielded apparatus 2450, and as a result, the effect of the shielded area P1 (including the second shielded apparatus 2450) can be improved.

  Further, the rotation of the second effect member 2453 depends on the elastic restoring action of the biasing spring 2454 (see FIG. 30), and does not correspond to the raising / lowering operation of the raising / lowering member 460. Therefore, for example, when the elevating member 460 and the second effect member 2453 are mechanically connected, the second effect member 2453 is moved in response to the elevating operation of the elevating member 460 (the speed change and the moving direction correspond). In this case, the second effect member 2453 can be moved in an operation mode that is difficult to form.

  Next, with reference to FIG. 35, the aspect of rotation of the second effect member 2453 in the moving process of the elevating member 460 will be described.

  FIGS. 35A and 35B are schematic front views of the elevating member 460 and the second shielded device 2450. FIG. FIG. 35 (a) schematically shows a state in which the elevating member 460 is disposed at a position in the middle of moving from the raised position to the lowered position. In FIG. 35 (b), from the state of FIG. 35 (a), A state in which the elevating member 460 is lowered by a predetermined distance L3 is schematically illustrated. Note that the second effect member 2453 is illustrated by a broken line, and in FIG. 35A, the display portion 2453c of the second effect member 2453 is not visible from the viewing hole 2451d of the second shielding member 2451. FIG. 35B shows a state in which the display portion 2453c of the second effect member 2453 is visible from the visual hole 2451d.

  As described above, the second effect member 2453 is rotated by the side wall 462a of the elevating member 460 until the elevating member 460 is moved from the raised position and reaches the position illustrated in FIG. (No speed, see FIG. 32 (b)), the elevating member 460 is lowered by a predetermined distance L3 from the position shown in FIG. 35 (a), so that the restriction on the second effect member 2453 is released. 2 The effect member 2453 is rotated by the urging force of the urging spring 2454 (see FIG. 30) to a position where the display portion 2453c and the viewing hole 2451d of the second shielding member 2451 overlap with each other in front view, and then stopped ( On the other hand, the elevating member 460 continues to move until it reaches the lowered position.

  That is, in the process in which the elevating member 460 moves from the raised position to the lowered position, the speed ratio at the same time of the elevating member 460 and the second effect member 2453 is changed. Therefore, the effect of the second shielded device 2450 can be improved.

  Here, the moving speed of the moving member (corresponding to the lifting member 460) and the moving speed of the effect member (corresponding to the second effect member 2453) that changes the appearance of the shielded area (corresponding to the shielded area P1) When the speed ratio is constant, each speed change from the start of movement to the end of movement of the moving member and the production member corresponds in a proportional relationship, and the production effect tends to be monotonous.

  On the other hand, according to the present embodiment, since the movement (rotation) of the second effect member 2453 depends on the urging force of the urging spring 2454, the magnitude of the movement (rotation) speed of the second effect member 2453 is increased or decreased. It does not depend on the moving speed of the member 460. Therefore, when the elevating member 460 and the second effect member 2453 are mechanically connected, the second effect member 2453 can have a speed change that is difficult to form, resulting in the player's unexpected behavior. 2 production member 2453 can be made.

  Next, a third embodiment will be described with reference to FIGS. 36 to 51. In the third embodiment, unlike the swing operation unit 600 in the first embodiment, a swing operation unit 3600 in which “both eyes” is displayed on the front side will be described, and the front surface of the swing operation unit 3600 will be described. The shielding operation unit 3500 fastened and fixed to the side will be described. In addition, the same code | symbol is attached | subjected about the part same as said each embodiment, and the description is abbreviate | omitted.

  FIG. 36 is a front perspective view of the shielding operation unit 3500 and the swing operation unit 3600 in the third embodiment. As shown in FIG. 36, the shield operation unit 3500 is fastened and fixed to the front side of the swing operation unit 3600 in the assembled state. Here, the shielding operation unit 3500 will be described with reference to FIGS. 36 to 38.

  The shielding operation unit 3500 includes four members (arm members 3520) that are rotated with one end serving as a base point, and includes four units for operating (rotating) each of these members. That is, in the front view of the back case 210 (see FIG. 7), the shielding operation unit 3500 includes two units arranged in the vertical direction on the left side of the opening 211a and the vertical direction on the right side of the opening 211a. It consists of two units arranged. In this case, since the structure (technical idea) for operating (rotating) each member (arm member 3520) is the same in the four units, one unit (opening) of these four units will be described below. A unit disposed on the upper right side of 211a (see FIG. 7) will be referred to as a shielding operation unit 3500.

  As shown in FIG. 36, the shielding operation unit 3500 includes an attachment base 3510 fastened and fixed to the swing operation unit 3600, and is formed on the attachment base 3510 so as to be rotatable with one end as a starting point, and on the front side of the attachment base 3510. The arm member 3520 is mainly provided. As will be described later, an opening 3511 is formed in the mounting base 3510, and as the arm member 3520 is rotated from the retracted position to the extended position, the swing operation unit 3600 can be viewed through the opening 3511 in front view. (See FIG. 49A).

  FIG. 37 is a rear perspective view of the shielding operation unit 3500. As shown in FIG. 37, the mounting base 3510 of the shielding operation unit 3500 is formed in a long rectangular shape, and an opening 3511 that is a rectangular through hole formed below the mounting base 3510, and the opening A guide cylinder part 3512 disposed on the rear surface side of the attachment base 3510 at the lower end of the part 3511, and a disk-shaped production assisting member 3513 disposed movably up and down inside the guide cylinder part 3512. And a drive motor 3514 that is fastened and fixed to the rear surface side of the mounting base 3510 and generates a driving force for driving the arm member 3520.

  The opening 3511 is formed in a size that is substantially the same as or slightly smaller than the outer shape of a shielded region P2 (see FIG. 38B), which will be described later.

  The guide tube portion 3512 extends in the up-down direction (up-down direction in FIG. 37), and has an opening from the upper end whose cross-sectional shape is rectangular with the minor axis direction being the front-rear direction in FIG. The opening is formed such that the dimension in the minor axis direction is slightly larger than the dimension in the thickness direction of the effect assisting member 3513, and the dimension in the major axis direction is slightly larger than the diameter dimension of the effect assisting member 3513.

  The upper end of the guide tube portion 3512 is formed so as to protrude inside the opening portion 3511 and is formed from a colorless and transparent resin material. Therefore, when the swinging operation unit 3600 (see FIG. 36) disposed on the rear surface side of the shielding operation unit 3500 is visually recognized from the opening 3511, the swinging operation unit 3600 is visually recognized through the colorless and transparent guide tube portion 3512. (See FIG. 49 (a)). Since the guide tube portion 3512 is colorless and transparent, the swing operation unit 3600 is not shielded by the guide tube portion 3512 and cannot be visually recognized.

  The production assistance member 3513 is a white disk-shaped member formed of a magnetic material, and the production assistance member 3513 has an inner side of the guide tube portion 3512 in the thickness direction due to the dimensional relationship with the guide tube portion 3512 described above. Is formed so as to be movable in a posture matched with the front-rear direction, and the production assisting member 3513 is visually recognized in a circular shape when viewed from the front. Further, the diameter of the effect assisting member 3513 is formed to be larger than the diameter of the black eyes of the “both eyes” displayed on the front side of the swing operation unit 3600 (see FIG. 39).

  When the production assisting member 3513 is moved to the upper end side of the guide tube portion 3512 (the side formed by projecting to the inside of the opening 3511), the swing operation unit 3600 disposed on the rear surface side of the shielding operation unit 3500. When visually recognizing (see FIG. 49) from the opening 3511, a part of the swing operation unit 3600 is shielded by the effect assisting member 3513, and an appearance that cannot be formed by the swing operation unit 3600 alone can be viewed. it can. Thus, as will be described later, when the production assistance member 3513 is moved in relation to the swing operation unit 3600, a state in which one eye of the “both eyes” is hidden by the production assistance member 3513 is formed. A mechanism for moving the production assisting member 3513 will be described later.

  FIGS. 38A and 38B are front views of the shielding operation unit 3500. FIG. FIG. 38A illustrates a case where the arm member 3520 is disposed at the retracted position, and FIG. 38B illustrates a case where the arm member 3520 is disposed at the extended position.

  As shown in FIGS. 38 (a) and 38 (b), the arm member 3520 receives the driving force of the drive motor 3514 (see FIG. 37) by an internal mechanism (not shown), and the axis Q shown in the figure is the rotation axis. And rotated between the retracted position and the overhang position. Here, the shielded region P2 is formed on the rear surface side of the arm member 3520.

  When the arm member 3520 is disposed at the retracted position, the shielded region P2 is hidden by the arm member 3520 and is not visible in the front view, but when the arm member 3520 is disposed at least in the extended position. Is an area that is visible in front view. In the front view, at least a part of the opening 3511 of the attachment base 3510 is included in the shielded region P2. As a result, when the shielded region P2 is visible (when the arm member 3520 is disposed at the extended position), the swinging operation unit 3600 can be visually recognized through the opening 3511, as will be described later. (See FIG. 49).

  Returning to FIG. The swinging operation unit 3600 includes two units that are disposed on the left and right sides of the opening 211a above the rear case 210 in the front view of the rear case 210 (see FIGS. 7 and 8). In this case, since the structure (technical idea) for operating (turning) the arm member 3620 is the same in the two units, one unit (the right side of the opening 211a) of these two units will be described below. The unit arranged in FIG. 7 (see FIG. 7 and FIG. 8) will be referred to as a swing operation unit 3600.

  39 and 40 are front perspective views of the swing operation unit 3600. FIG. FIG. 39 illustrates a state where the arm member 3620 is retracted to the retracted position, and FIG. 40 illustrates a state where the arm member 3620 is protruded to the extended position.

  As shown in FIGS. 39 and 40, the swing operation unit 3600 includes an arm member 3620 whose base end is rotatably supported, and a drive motor 3631 that applies a rotational driving force to the arm member 3620. The arm member 3620 is swung (rotated) between the retracted position shown in FIG. 39 and the extended position shown in FIG. In the retracted position, the arm member 3620 is in a posture of hanging vertically downward and is retracted to the rear side of the shielding operation unit 3500 (see FIG. 36), while in the extended position, the arm member 3620 has one end thereof. Is lifted upward and inclined obliquely downward, and one end thereof projects from the front of the third symbol display device 81 (see FIG. 2).

  A shielded region P3 is formed on the rear surface side of the arm member 3620. The shielded area P3 is an area that is not visible in the front view when the arm member 3620 is disposed at the retracted position, but is an area that is visible in the front view when the arm member 3620 is disposed at least in the extended position. is there. In the shielded region P3, a pair of viewing holes 3613 that allow the display unit 3654a (see FIG. 43) of the shielded device 3650 to be visible are formed.

  Here, in a gaming machine such as the pachinko machine 10, a moving member (corresponding to the arm member 3620) formed to be movable between a first position (corresponding to the retracted position) and a second position (corresponding to the extended position). ) And drive means (corresponding to the drive motor 3631) for generating a driving force for moving the moving member, and when the moving member is disposed at the first position, the moving member is shielded by the moving member. Thus, when the moving member is disposed at least in the second position, the shielded area (corresponding to the shielded area P3) is visible in the front view. (For example, refer to JP 2011-182984 A). However, in the conventional gaming machine described above, only a pattern or a display is provided in the shielded area, and the ability as an effect part to draw attention to the player is low, and the shielded area is effectively used as an effect part. It was hard to say.

  On the other hand, in the present embodiment, as will be described later, the appearance of the shielded area P3 is changed in conjunction with the swinging motion (turning) of the arm member 3620. It is possible to improve the ability of P3 as an effect part and to effectively use the shielded area P3 as an effect part. Here, with reference to FIG. 41, the structure of the swing operation unit 3600 having the arm member 3620 will be described.

  FIG. 41 is an exploded front perspective view of the rocking motion unit 3600. FIG. The swing operation unit 3600 includes a mounting base 3610 disposed on the rear case 210 (see FIG. 7), an arm member 3620 whose base end is rotatably supported by the mounting base 3610, and the arm member 3620. A driving device 3630 for generating a driving force for rotational driving, a front case body 3640 disposed on the front surface of the mounting base 3610 and the driving device 3630, and a driving device 3630 rotated by the driving force. And a shielded device 3650 composed of a plurality of gears.

  The mounting base 3610 accommodates the base end of the arm member 3620 and the driving device 3630 between the front case body 3640 and the shielded device 3650 on the side opposite to the side on which the front case body 3640 is disposed. It is a member for this purpose, and is formed in a rectangular shape that is vertically long when viewed from the front. The mounting base 3610 protrudes from the front surface of the mounting base 3610 and rotatably supports the arm member 3620, a through hole 3612 through which the driving shaft 3632 of the driving device 3630 is inserted, and a shielded device 3650. And a pair of viewing holes 3613 enabling the viewing of the display portion 3654a.

  The pair of visual recognition holes 3613 are positions corresponding to both eyes of the “eye changing daruma” displayed on the front surface of the mounting base 3610 and overlap with any one of the displays 3654a1 to 3654a4 of the effect member 3654 described later. Is opened. Thereby, by rotating the effect member 3654, the respective displays 3654a1 to 3654a4 visually recognized from the visual recognition hole 3613 are changed, the eyes of the daruma are changed, and the appearance of the shielded region P3 is changed (from FIG. 46 to FIG. 46). 48).

  The arm member 3620 includes a main body part 3621 formed in an elongated shape, a groove part 3622 formed as a groove-like opening on the proximal end side of the main body part 3621, and a main body part 3621 on the opposite side of the groove part 3622. A decorative portion 3623 that is covered on the front surface on one end side and is formed as a decorative body, and a shaft support hole 3624 that is formed through the main body portion 3621 at a position between the decorative portion 3623 and the groove portion 3621. Configured primarily for preparation.

  The groove portion 3622 is an opening that extends on a straight line passing through the shaft support hole 3624 and into which the projecting pin 3635 of the driving device 3630 is inserted in the assembled state (see FIG. 45). In the assembled state, a groove 3622 extends from the position where the projecting pin 3635 is closest to the shaft support hole 3624 (see FIG. 45) toward the opposite side of the shaft support hole 3624. When the arm member 3620 rotates, the projecting pin 3635 of the driving device 3630 slides on the inner periphery of the groove portion 3622.

  In the present embodiment, in the present embodiment, “both eyes” is displayed on the front side, and the magnet portion 3620Mg is embedded at the position of one eye of the “both eyes”. As will be described later, this “dharma of both eyes” is visually recognized through the production assisting member 3513 of the shielding operation unit 3500 disposed on the front side of the swing operation unit 3600 when the arm member 3620 is disposed at the retracted position. This is visually recognized as a “one-eyed daruma”, which will be described in detail later.

  The arm member 3620 is pivotally supported so that the base end of the arm member 3620 is rotatable with respect to the mounting base 3610 by inserting the shaft portion 3611 of the mounting base 3610 into the shaft support hole 3624. In this case, the contact surface portion 3641 of the front case body 3640 is brought into contact with the arm member 3620 on the front surface of the main body portion 3621 and in the vicinity of the shaft support hole 3624. As a result, the arm member 3620 is held in a state where its base end is rotatable between the mounting base 3610 and the front case body 3640 facing each other.

  The driving device 3630 is driven by rotation of a driving motor 3631 that generates a driving force, a driving shaft 3632 of the driving motor 3631, a first gear 3633 fixed to the driving shaft 3632, and the first gear 3633. A second gear 3634 rotatably supported by an insertion shaft 3640a projecting from the rear surface side of the front case body 3640, and a projecting pin 3635 projecting from the outer peripheral end of the second gear 3634 to the rear surface side. The drive motor 3631 is fastened and fixed to the rear surface of the front case body 3640 with the projecting pin 3635 inserted through the groove 3622 of the arm member 3620. In this case, the second gear 3634 is sandwiched between the rear surface of the front case body 3640 and the arm member 3620 (see FIG. 41). In the present embodiment, the gear ratio of the first gear 3633 and the second gear 3634 is formed as 1.

  As described above, the protruding pin 3635 is a portion that is inserted into the groove 3622 of the arm member 3620 and is formed in a columnar shape having an outer diameter that is equal to or slightly smaller than the groove width of the groove 3622 of the arm member 3620. When the drive shaft 3632 of the drive device 3630 is rotationally driven, the projecting pin 3635 is moved in the groove portion 3622 of the arm member 3620 along the extending direction of the groove portion 3622. As a result, the arm member 3620 is It is rotated around the part 3611.

  In an assembled state, the drive shaft 3632 of the drive device 3630 is inserted into the through hole 3612 of the attachment base 3610 and is fixed to the switching gear 3652 of the shielded device 3650 disposed on the rear surface side of the attachment base 3610.

  The shielded device 3650 includes a rear case body 3651 that is formed of a resin material, is formed in a case shape having a recess capable of accommodating a plurality of gears, and is fastened and fixed to the rear surface side of the mounting base 3610. A switching gear 3652 through which the drive shaft 3632 of the device 3630 is inserted is centered, a pair of driven gears 3653 rotated by the rotation of the switching gear 3652, and rotated by the rotations of the driven gears 3653. And an effect member 3654 having a display portion 3654a on the front side, and the driven gear 3653 and the effect member 3654 are rotatably supported by a plurality of shaft portions 3655 protruding from the front surface of the rear case body 3651. . Note that the gear ratio of the switching gear 3652 and the effect member 3654 via the driven gear 3653 is formed at about 3/2. That is, the rotation of the switching gear 3652 is reduced to 2/3 times and transmitted to the effect member 3654.

  When the drive shaft 3632 of the drive device 3630 is rotated counterclockwise when viewed from the front, the switching gear 3652 is rotated in accordance with the rotation of the drive shaft 3632 while rotating the drive shaft 3632 clockwise when viewed from the front. , Not follow (stop). Here, the switching gear 3652 will be described with reference to FIG.

  42A and 42B are schematic partial sectional views of the switching gear 3652. FIG. 42A schematically shows the transmission state of the switching gear 3652, and FIG. 42B schematically shows the release state of the switching gear 3652.

  As shown in FIG. 42A, the switching gear 3652 is formed coaxially with the inner ring member 3652a fixed to the drive shaft 3632 of the drive device 3630 (see FIG. 41) and the inner ring member 3652a in the radial direction. And an outer ring member 3652b formed to be relatively rotatable, a plurality of space portions 3652c formed in an elongated hole shape along the circumferential direction on the inner peripheral surface of the outer ring member 3652b, and an outer frame of the space portion 3652c A biting surface 3652d formed on the inner peripheral surface of the outer ring member 3652b, a biting sphere 3652e disposed in the space 3652c, and urging the biting sphere 3652e in one direction and the biting surface 3652d And an urging spring 3652f disposed near one end.

  The outer ring member 3652b has teeth formed on the outer periphery by integral molding. The teeth are meshed with the driven gear 3653 (see FIG. 41), and when the switching gear 3652 is rotated, the rotation is transmitted to the driven gear 3653.

  The biting surface 3652d is formed so as to be inclined so that the vicinity of the other end opposite to one end where the biasing spring 3652f is disposed gradually approaches the inner ring member 3652a. In other words, in the vicinity of the other end, the biting surface 3652d and the outer periphery of the inner ring member 3652a are formed so as to approach each other.

  The biting sphere 3652e is a member formed in a spherical shape, and the diameter size of the biting sphere 3652e is such that the biting sphere 3652e is pressed against the other end opposite to one end where the biasing spring 3652f is disposed. (See FIG. 42 (a)). The diameter dimension is such that it can be caught in a gap formed by the biting surface 3652d and the inner ring member 3652a. In addition, when the biting sphere 3652e is moved to the biasing spring 3652f side from the state of being pressed against the other end opposite to the one end where the biasing spring 3652f is disposed (see FIG. 42B), the biting sphere 3652e is bitten. The engagement surface 3652d, the inner ring member 3652a, and the engagement sphere 3652e do not form the engagement state, and the inner ring member 3652a and the outer ring member 3652b are formed to be relatively rotatable. The operation of the switching gear 3652 thus formed will be described.

  When the inner ring member 3652a is rotated in the direction of the arrow shown in FIG. 42A (counterclockwise), the biting sphere 3652e is moved by the frictional force between the outer peripheral surfaces of the inner ring member 3652a and the biting sphere 3652e, The biting sphere 3652e is pressed against the other end opposite to the one end where the biasing spring 3652f is disposed. In this case, a biting state is formed among the biting surface 3652d, the inner ring member 3652a and the biting sphere 3652e, the contact surface pressure between the inner ring member 3652a and the outer ring member 3652b is increased, and the rotational force of the inner ring member 3652a is increased. It is transmitted to the member 3652b (a transmission state is formed). That is, the outer ring member 3652b can be rotated by a driving force that drives the inner ring member 3652a.

  When the inner ring member 3652a is rotated in the direction of the arrow (clockwise) shown in FIG. 42B, the urging force of the urging spring 3652f is caused by the frictional force between the inner ring member 3652a and the outer peripheral surface of the biting sphere 3652e. The biting sphere 3652e is moved against it. In this case, the engagement state is not formed (the release state is formed) among the engagement surface 3652d, the inner ring member 3652a, and the engagement sphere 3652e, and the inner ring member 3652a and the outer ring member 3652b are formed to be relatively rotatable. Therefore, the outer ring member 3652b is not driven by the driving force that drives the inner ring member 3652a.

  Due to the characteristics of the switching gear 3652, it is possible to give directionality to the operation of the shielded device 3650. That is, as will be described later, the shielded device 3650 can be switched between rotation and stop according to the driving direction of the drive device 3630, and the effect of the shielded region P3 can be improved.

  Returning to FIG. The effect member 3654 of the shielded device 3650 has a display portion 3654a on the front side. In the assembled state, any of the displays 3654a1 to 3654a4 (see FIG. 43) of the display unit 3654a is formed so as to be visible from the pair of viewing holes 3613 of the mounting base 3610. Here, with reference to FIG. 43, the display part 3654a of the production member 3654 will be described.

  43 (a) to 43 (d) are front views of the display portion 3654a of the effect member 3654. FIG. 43A shows one stop state of the display portion 3654a, and FIG. 43B shows a state where the display portion 3654a is rotated 90 ° clockwise from the state of FIG. 43A. FIG. 43C shows a state in which the display unit 3654a is rotated 90 ° clockwise from the state of FIG. 43B, and FIG. 43D shows a state in which the display unit 3654a is turned from the state of FIG. Each of the states rotated 90 ° around is shown in the figure. When the display portion 3654a is further rotated 90 ° clockwise from the state of FIG. 43 (d), it is formed so as to return to the state of FIG. 43 (a), and FIG. 43 (a) to FIG. 43 (d). The position of the viewing hole 3613 (see FIG. 40) of the mounting base 3610 in the assembled state is indicated by a broken line.

  As shown to Fig.43 (a), the display part 3654a has each display 3654a1-3654a4 at intervals in the circumferential direction. In this embodiment, the pair of displays 3654a1 has a "black circle" pattern, the pair of displays 3654a2 has a "star" pattern, the pair of displays 3654a3 has a "heart" pattern, and the pair of displays 3654a4 has a "¥" Are displayed in a size that fits within the size of the pair of viewing holes 3613 (see FIG. 40).

  43 (a) to 43 (d), in the assembled state (see FIG. 40), each display 3654a1 to 3654a4 is a pair depending on the rotation angle of the effect member 3654 (every 90 ° in the present embodiment). A pair of displays (any one of the displays 3654a1 to 3654a4) is formed so as to be visible from the viewing holes 3613.

  As will be described later, when the arm member 3620 (see FIG. 39) is rotated from the extended position to the retracted position, the effect member 3654 is rotated. When the effect member 3654 is rotated, the display unit 3654a is rotated, and the respective displays 3654a1 to 3654a4 that are visible from the viewing hole 3613 of the mounting base 3610 are switched. That is, the “eye changing daruma” displayed on the front surface of the mounting base 3610 (the shielded region P3, see FIG. 40) is changed.

  On the other hand, when the arm member 3620 (see FIG. 39) is rotated from the retracted position to the extended position, the rotation is not transmitted and the effect member 3654 is stopped. That is, the operation mode of the effect member 3654 can be changed depending on the rotation direction of the arm member 3620, and an unexpected change can be caused in the shielded region P3. Here, the interlocking between the arm member 3620 and the effect member 3654 will be described with reference to FIGS. 44 to 48.

  FIGS. 44 to 46 are diagrams for explaining the process of swinging (rotating) the arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600 from the retracted position to the extended position in time series. FIGS. 46 (a) and 46 (a) are front views of the swing operation unit 3600, and FIGS. 44 (b), 45 (b) and 46 (b) are front views of the shielded device 3650. FIG. . 44 (a), 45 (a) and 46 (a), the projecting pin 3635 disposed on the rear surface side of the second gear 3634 and the groove portion 3622 of the arm member 3620 are indicated by broken lines. Illustration of the front case body 3640 and the drive motor 3631 is omitted. The same applies to FIGS. 47 and 48 described later.

  45A, the drive motor 3631 (see FIG. 39) is driven to rotate, the first gear 3633 is rotated clockwise, and the arm member 3620 swings by a predetermined amount from the retracted position to the extended position. The state of being moved is shown. 44 (b), 45 (b) and 46 (b) show the same state.

  As shown in FIG. 44 (a), in a state where the arm member 3620 is disposed at the retracted position, the arm member 3620 is in a posture of hanging downward, and the projecting pin 3635 is near the outer end of the groove portion 3622. (The end on the side far from the shaft support hole 3624, the right side in FIG. 44 (a)).

  From the state shown in FIG. 44A (a state where the arm member 3620 is disposed at the retracted position), the drive shaft 3632 (see FIG. 41) of the drive motor 3631 is rotationally driven clockwise (FIG. 44A). When the first gear 3633 is rotated in the same direction and the second gear 3634 engaged with the first gear 3633 is rotated counterclockwise, the projecting pin 3635 is moved to the inner end (the shaft support) of the groove 3622. It is moved toward the end closer to the hole 3624, that is, the left side of FIG.

  As a result, as shown in FIG. 45A, the arm member 3620 is rotated about the shaft support hole 3624 clockwise in FIG. 45A. The drive shaft 3632 (see FIG. 41) of the drive motor 3631 is further driven to rotate, and the second gear 3634 is further rotated counterclockwise in FIG. 45A. As a result, the projecting pin 3635 is located near the outer end of the groove 3622. When it is reached again, as shown in FIG. 46A, the arm member 3620 is disposed at the overhang position.

  As shown in FIG. 44 (a), when the arm member 3620 is disposed at the retracted position, the direction orthogonal to the straight line connecting the insertion pin 3635a (see FIG. 41) that pivotally supports the projecting pin 3635 and the second gear 3634. And the extending direction of the guide groove 3622 are aligned with each other.

  As a result, the rotation direction of the projecting pin 3635 and the extending direction of the guide groove 3622 coincide with each other at the time of starting to rotate the arm member 3620 from the state of being disposed at the retracted position. The resistance received from the guide groove 3622 can be suppressed. Therefore, it is possible to reduce the driving force required at the start of the operation that requires the greatest force.

  As shown in FIG. 46A, when the arm member 3620 is disposed at the extended position, the direction X connecting the shaft support hole 3624 as the rotation shaft of the arm member 3620 and the projecting pin 3635 is the second gear. It is orthogonal to the direction Y connecting the insertion pin 3640a (see FIG. 41) that rotatably supports 3634 and the protruding pin 3635.

  In this case, the projecting pin 3635 can be positioned at the dead point in the relationship between the arm member 3620 and the second gear 3634. Thereby, even if the driving force from the driving motor 3631 (see FIG. 39) is unnecessary, the arm member 3620 can be mechanically held at the extended position, so that the energy consumption of the driving means can be suppressed.

  In the process in which the arm member 3620 rotates from the retracted position to the extended position, the first gear 3633 is rotated clockwise. That is, since the drive shaft 3632 (see FIG. 39) of the drive motor 3631 is also rotated clockwise, the drive force of the drive motor 3631 is not transmitted to the switching gear 3652, as described above, and FIG. As shown in 45 (b) and FIG. 46 (b), since the effect member 3654 is not rotated, the display unit 3654a is stopped and the appearance of the shielded region P3 is not changed. Here, with reference to FIGS. 47 and 48, the interlocking of the arm member 3620 and the effect member 3654 when the arm member 3620 rotates from the extended position to the retracted position will be described.

  47 and 48 are diagrams for explaining the process of moving the arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600 from the extended position (see FIG. 46) to the retracted position in time series, and FIG. 47 (a) and FIG. (A) is a front view of the swing operation unit 3600, and FIGS. 47 (b) and 48 (b) are front views of the shielded device 3650. FIG.

  In FIG. 47 (a), the drive motor 3631 (see FIG. 39) is rotated and the first gear 3633 is rotated counterclockwise (see FIG. 46) from the state where the arm member 3620 is disposed at the extended position (see FIG. 46). FIG. 47A shows a state in which the arm member 3620 is rotated by a predetermined amount from the extended position to the retracted position by being rotated counterclockwise.

  Rotating the first gear 3633 counterclockwise (FIG. 47 (a) counterclockwise) is synonymous with rotating the drive shaft 3632 (see FIG. 39) of the drive motor 3631 counterclockwise, As described above, the switching gear 3652 of the shielded device 3650 is also rotated counterclockwise (a transmission state is formed).

  As shown in FIGS. 47B and 48B, when the switching gear 3652 is rotated, the effect member 3654 is rotated by being decelerated by the gear ratio of the shielded device 3650. In the present embodiment, the rotation angle of the first gear 3633 of the driving device 3630 required for the arm member 3620 to move from the extended position to the retracted position is about 135 ° in the present embodiment (FIG. ) To FIG. 46 (a)), as described above, the gear ratio of the switching gear 3652 and the effect member 3654 via the driven gear 3653 of the shielded device 3650 is about 3/2 in this embodiment, so the switching is performed. The effect member 3654 is rotated at a rotation angle that is 2/3 of the rotation angle of the gear 3652.

  That is, when the arm member 3620 is rotated from the extended position to the retracted position (rotation angle is approximately 135 °), the effect member 3654 is rotated by an angle that is 2/3 of the rotation angle of the arm member 3620 (rotation angle is approximately 90 degrees). °). Therefore, when the arm member 3620 is rotated once from the extended position to the retracted position, the pair of displays 3654a1 to 3654a4 visually recognized through the pair of visual holes 3613 is switched. That is, for example, when the arm member 3620 is rotated once from the extended position to the retracted position, a display 3654a1 (see FIG. 46) on which a “black circle” pattern is formed is displayed on which a “star” pattern is formed. It is switched to 3654a2 (see FIG. 48).

  Further, the effect member 3654 is returned to the original posture when the arm member 3620 is rotated four times (reciprocated four times) from the extended position to the retracted position. Since the pair of driven gears 3653 are interposed, the rotation direction (counterclockwise) of the drive shaft 3632 (see FIG. 39) of the drive motor 3631 is opposite to the rotation direction (clockwise) of the effect member 3654. .

  Here, as described above, the effect member 3654 is rotated in response to the rotation of the arm member 3620 when the arm member 3620 is rotated in the first direction (the direction from the retracted position toward the extended position). The arm member 3620 is stopped when the arm member 3620 is rotated in a second direction (a direction from the protruding position toward the retracted position) which is the opposite direction of the first direction. Therefore, depending on the rotation direction of the arm member 3620, the operation mode of the effect member 3654 can be varied in two modes, that is, rotating or stopping.

  That is, when the arm member 3620 is rotated in the first direction (the direction from the retracted position toward the extended position) or in the second direction (the direction from the extended position toward the retracted position), the effect member When 3654 is rotated corresponding to the rotation of the arm member 3620, for example, the effect member 3654 is not rotated only when the arm member 3620 is rotated in the first direction (the direction from the retracted position toward the extended position). In addition, it is difficult to keep the appearance of the shielded region P3 constant.

  On the other hand, according to the present embodiment, when the arm member 3620 is rotated in the second direction (the direction from the extended position toward the retracted position), the effect member 3654 rotates corresponding to the rotation of the arm member 3620. When the arm member 3620 is rotated in the first direction (the direction from the retracted position to the extended position), the effect member 3654 is stopped, so that the arm member 3620 is in the first direction (the extended position from the retracted position). The appearance of the shielded region P3 can be kept constant only when the image is rotated in the direction toward the upper side. For example, when the display unit 3654a of the effect member 3654 displays a character or the like that is easily grasped in a stationary state, the effect member 3654 is only displayed while the arm member 3620 performs the swinging operation (rotation) in one rotation direction. By stopping, the stationary state of the display unit 3654a can be maintained for a longer time, and the effect of the shielded region P3 can be improved.

  Further, when the arm member 3620 is rotated in the second direction (the extended position to the retracted position) that hides the shielded area P3, the display portion 3654a of the effect member 3654 is rotated like a roulette, so that It is possible to increase the expectation of what the visually recognized display will be. On the other hand, when the arm member 3620 is rotated in a direction in which the shielded area P3 can be visually recognized (from the retracted position to the extended position), the effect member 3654 is stopped, and thus each display 3654a1 to 3654a4 (FIG. 43). The player can visually recognize the appearance of the shielded area P3 in the stopped state (see FIG. 2) longer (at an earlier timing).

  For example, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the present embodiment, the setting is such that the number of prize balls increases in a situation where one of the displays 3654a1 to 3654a4 (see FIG. 43) (for example, the display 3654a1) is viewed from the viewing hole 3613. If it is adopted, if the display visually recognized from the viewing hole 3613 of the mounting base 3610 can be confirmed at the earliest possible timing among the displays 3654a1 to 3654a4, the winning opening (first winning opening) 64, etc. (see FIG. 2), and as a result, more prize balls can be obtained.

  According to the present embodiment, when the arm member 3620 is disposed at the retracted position and the arm hole 3613 is rotated from the state where the viewing hole 3613 is not visible to the projecting position, the effect member 3654 is stopped. Before the member 3620 is rotated to the overhang position and stopped (if the arm member 3620 is rotated to a position where the arm member 3620 and the viewing hole 3613 do not overlap in the front-rear direction), a display that is viewed from the viewing hole 3613 is displayed. It can be confirmed whether it is 3654a1 (see FIG. 43). That is, it is possible to confirm a display (any one of the displays 3654a1 to 3654a4) that is viewed from the viewing hole 3613 at an early timing within the rotation operation of the arm member 3620.

  Here, as shown in FIG. 48, the mounting base 3610 is disposed so as to be overlapped in the front-rear direction on the movement locus of the effect member 3650, and each display 3654 a 1 to 3654 a 4 ( 43), it can be visually recognized, and the other is hidden (shielded) so that it cannot be visually recognized. Therefore, it serves as a kind of shielding member.

  When the mounting base 3610 and the effect member 3654 move relative to each other, the portion of the effect member 3654 that overlaps the attachment base 3610 (the portion that does not overlap the viewing hole 3613) becomes invisible, and the portion that does not overlap the attachment base 3610 of the effect member 3654 (viewing) The portion overlapping with the hole 3613 is visible. Therefore, as the production member 3654 and the mounting base 3610 are relatively moved, the displays 3654a1 to 3654a4 (see FIG. 43) visible in the front view in the display portion 3654a of the production member 3654 can be changed. The change in the appearance in the shielding area P3 can be clearly grasped as the change in the visible displays 3654a1 to 3654a4 of the effect member 3654, and the effect of the effect member 3654 is changed in the posture and position of the shielded area P3. Changes in appearance can be easily distinguished.

  As shown in FIGS. 44 to 48, when the arm member 3620 reciprocates between the retracted position and the extended position, the effect member 3654 rotates 90 ° clockwise. That is, when the arm member 3620 reciprocates four times between the retracted position and the extended position, the effect member 3654 rotates once.

  That is, after the effect member 3654 is arranged in the posture shown in FIG. 44B, when the arm member 3620 reciprocates between the retracted position and the extended position a predetermined number of times (four times in the present embodiment), the effect member 3654 again. When the arm member 3620 reciprocates once between the retracted position and the extended position, the effect member 3654 rotates from the attitude shown in FIG. 44B. Then, the path (one rotation) until it returns to the original posture again is rotated by an angle divided by a predetermined number of times (four times). Therefore, the position and posture of the effect member 3654 can be changed for each reciprocation of the arm member 3620, and as a result, the appearance of the shielded region P3 can be changed for each reciprocation of the arm member 3620.

  In the present embodiment, the rotation direction of the drive shaft 3632 (see FIG. 41) of the drive motor 3631 when the effect member 3654 is rotated is the direction along the gravity direction of the arm member 3620 (the arm member is moved from the extended position). The rotation direction of the drive shaft 3632 when rotating in the direction toward the retreat position is the same as that of the drive shaft 3632. Thereby, it is possible to suppress the driving force of the drive motor 3631 (see FIG. 39) that is used for both the rotation of the arm member 3620 and the rotation of the effect member 3654.

  That is, when the two members are driven by a single driving means (corresponding to the driving motor 3631), it is necessary to generate a driving force exceeding the resistance applied to each member, and it is difficult to downsize the driving means.

  On the other hand, according to the present embodiment, when the arm member 3620 is rotated in the second direction along the gravity direction (the direction from the protruding position toward the retracted position), the gravity assists the rotation of the arm member 3620. Therefore, even if the arm member 3620 and the effect member 3654 are operated simultaneously, the drive force can be reduced, and the drive motor 3631 (see FIG. 39) can be downsized.

  On the other hand, when the arm member 3620 is rotated in the first direction (the direction from the retracted position to the extended position) along the direction facing the gravity direction, the driving force needs to be increased by the amount of gravity. By stopping the effect member 3654, the driving force for rotating the effect member 3654 becomes unnecessary, and the driving force required for the drive motor 3631 (see FIG. 39) can be reduced as a result.

  Returning to FIG. As shown in FIG. 36, in the assembled state, the swing operation unit 3600 is disposed behind the shielding operation unit 3500, and the arm member 3520 of the shielding operation unit 3500 is disposed at the extended position (see FIG. 38B). In this case, the shielded region P2 and the opening 3511 can be visually recognized (see FIG. 38B).

  Here, in a gaming machine such as the pachinko machine 10, a moving member (corresponding to the arm member 3520) formed to be movable between the first position (corresponding to the retracted position) and the second position (corresponding to the extended position). ) And driving means for generating a driving force for moving the moving member (corresponding to the drive motor 3514, see FIG. 37), and when the moving member is disposed at the first position, the moving member When the moving member is disposed at least in the second position, the shielded region (shielded region) is a region that is visible in the front view. There is a gaming machine corresponding to P2 (see FIG. 38B) (see, for example, JP 2011-182984 A). However, in the conventional gaming machine described above, only a pattern or a display is provided in the shielded area, and the ability as an effect part to draw attention to the player is low, and the shielded area is effectively used as an effect part. It was hard to say.

  On the other hand, according to the present embodiment, when the arm member 3520 of the shielding operation unit 3500 is disposed at least in the extended position, the shielded region P2 (see FIG. 38B) can be visually recognized in front view. . Then, as will be described later, the arm member 3620 swings so that at least a part of the arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600 disposed on the rear surface side of the arm member 3520 passes through the shielded region P2 in front view. Since it is moved (rotated), at least a part of the rotating arm member 3620 can be viewed through the opening 3511 arranged in the shielded region P2. Therefore, the appearance of the shielded area P2 can be changed. As a result, the ability of the shielded area P2 as the effect part can be improved, and the shielded area P2 can be effectively used as the effect part.

  Here, referring to FIG. 49 to FIG. 51, the swing operation unit 3600 and the shielding operation unit 3500 that are independently operated by the driving force of the individual drive motors 3631 (see FIG. 39) and 3514 (see FIG. 37), respectively. The appearance of the shielded region P2 that is visually recognized according to each arrangement will be described.

  49A is a front view of the shielding operation unit 3500 and the swing operation unit 3600, FIG. 49B is a front view of the swing operation unit 3600, and FIG. 49C is FIG. It is a partial expanded front view of the shielding operation unit 3500 and the rocking | fluctuation operation unit 3600 in the part XXXIXc of (a). 49 (a) and 49 (c) show the assembled state (see FIG. 36) of the shielding operation unit 3500 and the swing operation unit 3600. In FIGS. 49 (a) to 49 (c), The arm member 3520 of the shielding operation unit 3500 is disposed at the extended position, and the arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600 is disposed at the retracted position.

  When the arm member 3520 of the shielding operation unit 3500 is disposed at the retracted position, the opening 3511 is shielded by the arm member 3520 in the front view, and therefore, the swing disposed on the rear surface side of the shielding operation unit 3500 through the opening 3511. The moving operation unit 3600 cannot be visually recognized (see FIG. 38A).

  As shown in FIG. 49A, when the arm member 3520 of the shielding operation unit 3500 is arranged at the extended position, the shielded area P2 becomes visible, and at least a part of the shielded area P2 is included. The rear of the shielding operation unit 3500 can be visually recognized through the opening 3511. That is, the arm member 3620 (decoration portion 3623) of the swing motion unit 3600 can be visually recognized through the opening 3511.

  Here, the arm member 3620 of the swinging operation unit 3600 is disposed at a position where the “both eyes” displayed on the decoration portion 3623 can be visually recognized through the opening 3511 of the shielding operation unit 3500 (FIG. 49A). )reference). However, the white disk-shaped presentation assisting member 3513 described above is between the magnet portion 3620Mg embedded in the position corresponding to the position of one eye of the “both eyes” displayed on the decoration portion 3623 of the arm member 3620. It is moved by the generated magnetic force. Then, the production assisting member 3513 is arranged on the front side of the decoration portion 3623 and at the position corresponding to the position of one eye of the “both eyes”, and one eye of the “both eyes” is shielded in front view. As shown in FIG. 49 (c), “a one-eye daruma” is visually recognized from the opening 3511.

  That is, the decorative portion 3623 of the swing motion unit 3600 visually recognizes “both eyes” when the arm member 3620 is disposed at the extended position (see FIG. 51A), and the arm member 3620 is moved to the retracted position. In the case of being arranged at “1”, the “one-eyed daruma” is made visible through the opening 3511.

  Thus, for example, when the arm member 3620 is placed in the overhang position ("Daruma of both eyes" is visually recognized), the jackpot winning probability increases, and the arm member 3620 is placed in the retracted position ("Darma of one eye" ”), The player can intuitively confirm whether the“ daruma ”in the decoration portion 3623 is“ both eyes ”or“ one eye ”. It is possible to grasp the current winning / winning probability.

  Thereby, the effect of the appearance visually recognized through the opening 3511 (the appearance of the shielded region P2) can be improved. Here, with reference to FIG. 50, the relationship between the rotation operation of the arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600 and the movement of the effect assisting member 3513 will be described.

  50 (a) to 50 (c), the arm member 3620 moves from the extended position to the retracted position on the mounting base 3510 of the shielding operation unit 3500 and the arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600 in the assembled state. It is the partial front schematic diagram of the attachment base 3510 and the arm member 3620 which were typically shown along the time series at the time.

  In FIG. 50 (a), the magnet portion 3620Mg of the arm member 3620 and the effect assisting member 3513 of the shielding operation unit 3500 are separated from each other, so that no magnetic force is generated between them, and the effect assisting member 3513 is caused by the action of gravity. A state of being arranged at the lower end of the guide cylinder portion 3512 is illustrated. In FIG. 50 (b), the arm member 3620 is rotated from the position of FIG. 50 (a) toward the retracted position, and a magnetic force is generated between the magnet portion 3620Mg and the production assistance member 3513, and the production assistance member 3513 moves. The state in which is started is illustrated. Further, in FIG. 50C, the arm member 3620 is disposed at the retracted position, and a magnetic force is generated between the magnet portion 3620Mg and the production assisting member 3513, so that the production assisting member 3513 is on the front side of the magnet unit 3620Mg (Corresponding to the position) is shown.

  As shown in FIGS. 50A to 50C, the production assisting member 3513 is disposed on the front side of the swing operation unit 3600 and moves up and down as the arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600 rotates. At the same time, in the process of movement, the arm member 3620 is formed so as to be visually recognized.

  Here, the external appearance of the arm member 3620 is visible if the arm member 3620 is disposed at the overhanging position (see FIG. 51A), and therefore through the shielded region P2 (see FIG. 49A). The appearance when the arm member 3620 is visually recognized may be predictable, lack of surprise, and cannot be said to have a sufficient effect.

  On the other hand, according to the present embodiment, when the arm member 3620 is disposed at the retracted position, the arm member 3620 and the effect assisting member 3513 overlap each other, so that the shielded region P2 (see FIG. 49 (a)). The external appearance when the arm member 3620 is visually recognized through can be different from the external appearance that can be expected from the arm member 3620 alone.

  Further, when the arm member 3620 and the production assistance member 3513 are relatively moved by magnetic force as in the present embodiment, the position where the production assistance member 3513 overlaps the arm member 3620 is gradually increased as the arm member 3620 is rotated. (Refer to FIG. 50C), the appearance of the arm member 3620 viewed through the shielded region P2 (see FIG. 49A) is rotated. Thus, the effect of making the appearance of the shielded region P2 different from the appearance that can be expected only from the arm member 3620 can be improved.

  In addition, since the production assistance member 3513 is moved by the magnetic force generated between the arm member 3620 and the production assistance member 3513, a mechanical mechanism for directly transmitting the force from the arm member 3620 to the production assistance member 3513 is unnecessary. And can.

  Furthermore, due to the magnetic property, if the interval between the production assisting member 3513 and the arm member 3620 is smaller than a predetermined distance, a large force can be suddenly generated between the production assistance member 3513 and the arm member 3620.

  That is, when the arm member 3620 is slightly rotated from the state illustrated in FIG. 50A (the state where the performance assisting member 3513 is disposed at the lower end of the guide tube portion 3512), the magnet portion of the arm member 3620 is obtained. The interval between 3620Mg and the production assistance member 3513 becomes smaller than the predetermined distance, and the production assistance member 3513 is moved greatly (see FIG. 50B).

  In this case, the effect assisting member 3513 can be given an acceleration that does not correspond to the moving speed of the arm member 3620. Therefore, the effect assisting member 3513 can be moved unexpectedly, and the effect of the effect can be improved. Here, with reference to FIG. 51, the case where the arm member 3620 of the rocking | fluctuation operation unit 3600 is arrange | positioned in an overhanging position is demonstrated.

  51A is a front view of the shielding operation unit 3500 and the swing operation unit 3600, and FIG. 51B is a front view of the swing operation unit 3600. 51A and 51B show the assembled state (see FIG. 36) of the shielding operation unit 3500 and the swing operation unit 3600, and the arm member 3520 and the swing operation unit of the shield operation unit 3500 are shown. The arm member 3620 of 3600 is disposed at the overhang position.

  As shown in FIG. 51A, when the arm member 3520 of the shielding operation unit 3500 is arranged at the extended position, the shielded area P2 becomes visible, and at least a part of the shielded area P2 is included. The rear of the shielding operation unit 3500 can be visually recognized through the opening 3511, and the “eye changing ball” displayed in the shielded region P3 of the mounting base 3610 of the swing operation unit 3600 can be visually recognized through the opening 3511.

  That is, the appearance of the shielded region P2 formed in the shielding operation unit 3500 is changed by rotating the arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600 disposed on the rear surface side. In the present embodiment, the shielded region P2 of the shielding operation unit 3500 and the shielded region P3 of the swing operation unit 3600 overlap in front view. Therefore, the appearance of the shielded area P2 can be visually recognized through the shielded area P2 (the opening 3511 at least partially included in the shielded area P2, see FIG. 38 (b)) and the shielded area P3 is visually recognized. It can be changed between the case where it is impossible and the case where the arm member 3620 is disposed at least in the protruding position so that the shielded region P3 can be visually recognized through the shielded region P2 (the opening 3511 included therein).

  Here, at least a part of the arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600 is visible in front view regardless of the arrangement of the arm member 3520 of the shielding operation unit 3500, and the arm member 3620 is visible only in the shielded region P2. It is not a member. Therefore, since the arm member 3620 is moved with a specific production intention regardless of the arm member 3520, it is natural that a drive means (corresponding to the drive motor 3631) unique to the arm member 3620 is provided. The need for the driving means for the arm member 3620 does not relate to whether or not the arm member 3620 passes through the shielded region P2 when viewed from the front.

  The feature of this embodiment is that the arm member 3620 is disposed so that the arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600 during the swing operation passes through the shielded region P2 in front view. That is, the movement of the arm member 3620 achieves a change in the shielded area P2, and at the same time, the necessary driving force uses the driving force of the driving means (corresponding to the driving motor 3631). Therefore, it is possible to eliminate the need for individual driving means for changing the appearance of the shielded area P2.

  Next, a fourth embodiment will be described with reference to FIGS. In the third embodiment, as shown in FIG. 41, the case where the rotation direction of the drive shaft 3632 of the drive device 3630 is switched to swing (rotate) the arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600 has been described. In the swing operation unit 4600 (see FIG. 52) of the fourth embodiment, when the arm member 4620 is swung (rotated), the drive shaft 3632 is rotated in one rotation direction, while the one rotation direction. When the drive shaft 3632 is rotated in another rotation direction that is the opposite direction, the arm member 4620 is not rotated and only the effect member 3654 is rotated.

  According to the configuration of the present embodiment to be described later, unlike the third embodiment in which the displays 3654a1 to 3654a4 (see FIG. 43) are sequentially switched by the swinging operation (rotation) of the arm member 3620 (see FIG. 41), the drive motor 3631. The displays 3654a1 to 3654a4 can be switched randomly (without depending on the order) by the control of (see FIG. 52). In addition, the same code | symbol is attached | subjected about the part same as said each embodiment, and the description is abbreviate | omitted.

  FIG. 52 is an exploded front perspective view of the swing operation unit 4600 according to the fourth embodiment. The swing operation unit 4600 includes a mounting base 4610 disposed in the rear case 210 (see FIG. 7), an arm member 4620 whose pivot is pivotally supported by the mounting base 4610, and the arm member 4620. A driving device 4630 for generating a driving force for rotational driving, a front case body 3640 disposed on the front surface of the mounting base 4610 and the driving device 4630, and the driving device 4630 are rotated by the driving force. And a shielded device 3650 composed of a plurality of gears.

  The mounting base 4610 is formed in the shape of a long rectangular plate, and “Dharma changing eyes” and “Mini Daruma” are displayed on the front side (front side in FIG. 52). A rail-shaped guide rail 4614 extending in the direction, an elevating member 4615 guided by the guide rail 4614 and moved up and down, and an urging force for energizing the elevating member 4615 upward (upward in FIG. 52). And an urging spring 4616 (see FIG. 55). The elevating member 4615 is a member that moves up and down as the arm member 4620 rotates, and details of the up and down movement will be described later. Here, the guide rail 4614 and the elevating member 4615 will be described with reference to FIGS. 53 and 54.

  53 (a) is a partial front view of the mounting base 4610 when the lower portion of the mounting base 4610 is viewed from the front, and FIG. 53 (b) is a diagram of the mounting base 4610 taken along line LIIIb-LIIIb in FIG. 53 (a). It is sectional drawing. In addition, illustration of the raising / lowering member 4615 (refer FIG. 54) is abbreviate | omitted in Fig.53 (a) and FIG.53 (b).

  As shown in FIGS. 53 (a) and 53 (b), a pair of guide rails 4614 protrude from the front surface side of the mounting base 4610 and extend in the vertical direction. A rail portion 4614a formed in a flange shape (L-shape) projecting to the outside and a position between the pair of rail portions 4614a and near the upper end of the rail portion 4614a (upward in FIG. 53A) And a columnar locking pin 4614b projecting from the front side of the base 4610.

  In the assembled state (see FIG. 55), the pair of rail portions 4614a has a pair of rail receivers of an elevating member 4615 (see FIG. 54) whose distance between the outsides of the pair of projecting portions (until just before projecting outward) is described later. It is formed slightly smaller than the distance between the end portions of the portion 4615c projecting in a bowl shape. In addition, the distance between the end portions (outside) of the pair of rail portions 4614a extending in a bowl shape is the distance between the inside of a pair of protruding portions (until immediately before protruding inward) of the pair of rail receiving portions 4615c described later. It is formed slightly smaller.

  54 (a) is a front view of the elevating / lowering member 4615, FIG. 54 (b) is a rear view of the elevating / lowering member 4615, and FIG. 54 (c) is taken along line LIVc-LIVc in FIG. 54 (b). 5 is a cross-sectional view of an elevating member 4615. FIG.

  As shown in FIG. 54, the elevating member 4615 is made of a resin material, and is a disc-shaped main body portion 4615a and a column projecting from the rear surface side in the lower center of the main body portion 4615a (downward in FIG. 54 (b)). Shaped locking pin 4615b and a pair of rail receiving portions 4615c disposed on the left and right sides of the locking pin 4615b and extending in the vertical direction (the vertical direction in FIG. 54 (b)) on the rear surface side of the main body portion 4615a. And a magnet part 4615Mg disposed on the left side of the front surface of the main body part 4615a. The locking pin 4615b is a part where one end of the biasing spring 4616 (see FIG. 55) is locked.

  The pair of rail receiving portions 4615c are protruded with a protruding height larger than the thickness of the protruding portion of the rail portion 4614a (see FIG. 53) of the guide rail 4614, and are hook-shaped (L It is formed in a cross-section of a character shape. Further, in the assembled state (see FIG. 55), the protruding portion of the rail receiving portion 4615c is a gap formed by the front surface of the mounting base 4610 (see FIG. 53) and the protruding portion of the rail portion 4614a of the guide rail 4614. The rail receiving portion 4615c and the guide rail 4614 project in the front-rear direction (vertical direction in FIG. 55). It is formed in a partially overlapping manner. As a result, the elevating member 4615 is slidably fitted to the guide rail 4614 of the mounting base 4610 in the assembled state.

  When the magnet portion 4615Mg is disposed in the main body portion 4615a, when a magnetic force is generated between a magnet portion 4620Mg of an arm member 4620 (see FIG. 52) described later and the magnet portion 4615Mg of the main body portion 4615a, the magnetic force The lifting / lowering member 4615 is formed so as to be moved up and down by the above action, details of which will be described later. Here, with reference to FIG. 55, the assembly state of the guide rail 4614 and the elevating member 4615 will be described.

  FIG. 55A is a partial front view of the mounting base 4610, and FIG. 55B is a cross-sectional view of the mounting base 4610 taken along the line LVb-LVb in FIG. 55A. In FIG. 55A, an assembled state in which the elevating member 4615 is fitted to the guide rail 4614 is illustrated, and a portion hidden by the main body portion 4615a of the elevating member 4615 is illustrated by a broken line.

  As shown in FIG. 55A, a biasing spring 4616 is disposed between the locking pin 4614b of the guide rail 4614 and the locking pin 4615b of the elevating member 4615. In the assembled state, the urging spring 4616 is extended to a position where the urging force of the urging spring 4616 hangs on the gravity loaded on the elevating member 4615 (gravity acts downward in FIG. 55A) (naturally). The elevating member 4615 is stopped.

  As shown in FIG. 55 (b), the rail portion 4614a of the guide rail 4614 and the rail receiving portion 4615c of the elevating member 4615 have the above-described configuration, so that the thickness direction and the left / right direction of the elevating member 4615 (see FIG. Since it is fitted with a slight gap in the left-right direction), the elevating member 4615 is disposed on the guide rail 4614 so as to be vertically movable. The biasing spring 4616 is disposed in a gap between the pair of rail portions 4614a of the guide rail 4614.

  As described above, the rail portion 4614a of the guide rail 4614 has a shape capable of moving up and down inside the rail receiving portion 4615c of the elevating member 4615 (a shape in which a gap is slightly formed between the rail receiving portion 4615c and the rail portion 4614a). It is formed.

  Further, as described above, the protruding portion of the protruding end of the rail portion 4614a and the protruding portion of the protruding end of the rail receiving portion 4615c are partially overlapped in the front-rear direction (vertical direction in FIG. 55). In the assembled state, the back-and-forth movement of the elevating member 4615 relative to the guide rail 4614 is restricted (prevented from coming off).

  When the elevating member 4615 is assembled to the guide rail 4614, the elevating member 4615 is disposed below the guide rail 4614 with both ends of the urging spring 4616 being engaged with the locking pins 4614b and 4615b, respectively ( When the biasing spring 4616 is extended), the rail portion 4614a of the guide rail 4614 and the rail receiving portion 4615c of the elevating member 4615 are fitted together, and the elevating member 4615 is released, the elevating member 4615 is guided to the guide rail 4614. The urging force of the urging spring 4616 is raised to the position shown in FIG. As a result, the elevating member 4615 is assembled to the guide rail 4614.

  Returning to FIG. 52, the driving device 4630 will be described. In the third embodiment, the first gear 3633 is fixed to the drive shaft 3632 of the drive device 3630 (see FIG. 41). However, in this embodiment, the switching gear 4633 is fixed instead of the first gear 3633. The switching gear 4633 is technically substantially the same as the switching gear 3652 (see FIG. 42) of the shielded device 3650 described above in the third embodiment, and the driving force is transmitted according to the rotation direction of the driving shaft 3632. The state and the release state in which the transmission of the driving force is released can be switched. However, in the switching, the rotation direction of the switching gear 4633 of the driving device 4630 and the rotation direction of the switching gear 3652 of the shielded device 3650 are reversed.

  That is, when the drive shaft 3632 of the drive device 4630 is rotated counterclockwise when viewed from the front, the rotation is transmitted to the switching gear 3652 of the shielded device 3650, but the rotation is transmitted to the switching gear 4633 of the drive device 4630. Not transmitted. On the other hand, when the drive shaft 3632 of the driving device 4630 is rotated clockwise in front view, the rotation is not transmitted to the switching gear 3652 of the shielded device 3650, but the rotation is not transmitted to the switching gear 4633 of the driving device 4630. Communicated.

  That is, the switching gear 4633 for transmitting the driving force to the arm member 4620 or the switching gear 3652 for transmitting the driving force to the effect member 3654 is rotated according to the rotation direction of the driving shaft 3632 of the driving device 4630. Can be switched. Thereby, the arm member 4620 and the effect member 3654 can be rotated independently (in a non-interlocking manner). Therefore, the number of driving means provided is suppressed (1 in this embodiment) with respect to the number of members (in this embodiment, two of the arm member 4620 and the rendering member 3654) that are independently operated (swinging and rotating). Can)

  Furthermore, by independently controlling the movements of the members (swinging movements, rotating movements), the relations of movements among the members (relationships of movement speeds and movement timings) are cut off, and the production does not depend on the movements of the arm members 4620. Member 3654 can be rotated independently. Thereby, since the rotation operation of the effect member 3654 can be made unexpected for the player, the effect of the effect of the shielded area P3 (see FIG. 56) whose appearance is changed by the rotation of the effect member 3654 is improved. Can do.

  Note that the switching of the driving force transmission is achieved by a mechanical mechanism (see FIG. 42), and an electric mechanism such as an electromagnet is unnecessary. Therefore, the control cost can be reduced as compared with the case where an electrical mechanism is employed.

  The arm member 4620 is formed to be able to swing (rotate, reciprocate) without switching the rotation direction of the drive shaft 3632 of the drive device 4630. Here, the arm member 4620 will be described.

  The arm member 4620 mainly includes a groove portion 4622 formed as a groove-shaped opening on the proximal end side of the main body portion 3621 and a long plate-shaped magnet portion 4620Mg disposed on the rear surface side of the main body portion 3621. Configured.

  The groove portion 4622 is an opening in which only the length in the extending direction is changed from the groove portion 3622 (see FIG. 41) in the third embodiment. That is, the groove 4622 extends on a straight line passing through the shaft support hole 3624 and is an opening through which the projecting pin 3635 of the driving device 4630 is inserted in the assembled state. The groove 4622 is formed so that the width direction is slightly larger than the diameter of the projecting pin 3635, the second gear 3634 of the driving device 4630 is rotated once, and the projecting pin 3635 projecting from the second gear 3634 accordingly. The projecting pin 3635 is formed to have a length that can be continuously slid during one rotation.

  In other words, the groove 4622 has the projecting pin 3635 from the position where the projecting pin 3635 is closest to the shaft support hole 3624 (see FIG. 58B) in the assembled state (see FIGS. 56 to 58). It extends at least to a position farthest from 3624 (see FIG. 57 (a)). Thus, as will be described later, the arm member 4620 is reciprocated once by the second gear 3634 being rotated once in the assembled state (see FIGS. 56 to 58).

  Here, for example, when the moving member (corresponding to the arm member 4620) is rotated only when the driving force of the driving means (corresponding to the driving motor 3631) is generated in one direction as in the present embodiment, the driving means The driving force generated in the moving member is limited to one direction. Therefore, when the moving member is reciprocated, the direction of the driving force cannot be reversed between the forward path and the return path. In this case, considering that the moving member is restored to the initial position, the moving member is easily limited to one that periodically rotates and moves, resulting in a low degree of freedom in designing the moving member.

  On the other hand, according to the configuration of the present embodiment, as will be described later, the drive shaft 3632 of the drive motor 3631 is rotated once in the clockwise direction in the front view, so that the arm member 4620 is in the first position (corresponding to the retracted position). 58 (see FIG. 58 (a)) and the second position (corresponding to the overhang position, see FIG. 56).

  That is, when a moving member (corresponding to the arm member 4620) is employed, not only a member that periodically rotates but also a member that reciprocates can be employed. Therefore, the design freedom of the moving member can be improved.

  The magnet portion 4620Mg is a portion that generates a driving force for moving the elevating member 4615 up and down, and is a small-diameter plate that extends toward the lower left in the front view on the lower rear surface side of the decorative portion 3623 of the arm member 4620. It is formed into a shape. In the assembled state (see FIG. 56), the magnet portion 4620Mg is a shaft support hole 3624 with the distance from the shaft support hole 3624 to the magnet portion 4515Mg of the lift member 4615 as a radius when the elevating member 4615 is disposed at the raised position. The center of the arm member 4620 extends from the position of the right end (right side of FIG. 56) to the lower left of the front view. When the arm member 4620 is disposed at the retracted position (see FIG. 58 (a)), the magnet portion 4620Mg is at least a position that does not overlap with the magnet portion 4515Mg of the elevating member 4515 in the vertical direction (vertical direction in FIG. 56). It is extended.

  As a result, when the arm member 4620 is rotated from the extended position to the retracted position so that the arm member 4620 and the elevating member 4615 come close to each other, the magnet portion 4615Mg (see FIG. 54) of the elevating member 4615 and the arm member 4620 are used. A magnetic force is generated between the magnet portion 4620Mg and the elevating member 4615 is moved up and down, details of which will be described later.

  Here, the swinging operation (rotation) of the arm member 4620 will be described with reference to FIGS. 56 to 58.

  FIGS. 56 to 58 (a) illustrate the process of moving the arm member 4620 of the swing operation unit 4600 from the extended position (see FIG. 56) to the retracted position (see FIG. 58 (a)) in time series. It is a front view of the dynamic operation unit 4600. 56 to 58 (a), the protruding pin 3635 disposed on the rear surface side of the second gear 3634 and the groove portion 4622 of the arm member 4620 are illustrated by broken lines, and the front case body 3640 and the drive motor 3631 are illustrated. Illustration is omitted. The same applies to FIG. 58B described later.

  In FIG. 57 (a), the drive motor 3631 (see FIG. 52) is rotationally driven, the switching gear 4633 is in the transmission state and rotated clockwise in FIG. 57 (a), and the arm member 4620 is moved from the extended position to the retracted position. FIG. 57 (b) shows a state in which the drive motor 3631 is further rotated from the state of FIG. 57 (a), and the switching gear 4633 is rotated clockwise. The state in which the arm member 4620 is further swung by a predetermined amount toward the retracted position is illustrated.

  FIG. 58B is a front view of the swing operation unit 4600. 58 (b), the drive motor 3631 is rotated from the state of FIG. 58 (a), the switching gear 4633 is in the transmission state and rotated clockwise in FIG. 58 (a), and the arm member 4620 extends from the retracted position. A state in which a predetermined amount of swinging is performed toward the position is illustrated. When the switching gear 4633 is further rotated clockwise from the state of FIG. 58 (b), the arm member 4620 is again arranged at the extended position (see FIG. 56).

  As shown in FIGS. 56 to 58, the arm member 4620 of the swing operation unit 4600 has a rotation direction in which the drive shaft 3632 (see FIG. 52) of the drive motor 3631 is in one direction (in this embodiment, clockwise in FIG. 56). When the switching gear 4633 is rotated, the second gear 3634 is rotated, and the projecting pin 3635 projecting from the second gear 3634 is slid along the groove 4622 of the arm member 4620, and the arm member 4620 is rotated (reciprocating).

  As shown in FIG. 56, when the arm member 4620 is disposed at the extended position, the direction X connecting the shaft support hole 3624 as the rotation shaft of the arm member 4620 and the projecting pin 3635 rotates the second gear 3634. It is orthogonal to the direction Y connecting the insertion shaft 3640a (see FIG. 52) and the projecting pin 3635 that are pivotally supported.

  In this case, the projecting pin 3635 can be positioned at the dead point in the relationship between the arm member 4620 and the second gear 3634. Thereby, even if the driving force from the drive motor 3631 (see FIG. 52) is unnecessary, the arm member 4620 can be mechanically held at the extended position (see FIG. 56), so that the energy consumption of the drive means can be suppressed. In addition, the arm member 4620 can be maintained in the extended position even if the transmission of the driving force from the drive shaft 3632 (see FIG. 52) of the drive device 4630 to the arm member 4620 is canceled.

  Here, the drive shaft 3632 (see FIG. 52) of the drive device 4630 rotates counterclockwise (counterclockwise in FIG. 56) in a state where the arm member 4620 is disposed at the extended position (mechanically held state). Then, the arm member 4620 is maintained in the state of being disposed at the extended position (the switching gear 4633 is formed in the release state), and the switching gear 3652 of the shielded device 3650 (see FIG. 52) is in the transmission state. It is rotated. As a result, the effect member 3654 (see FIG. 52) is rotated, and the displays 3654a1 to 3654a4 (see FIG. 43) of the display unit 3654a that are viewed from the viewing hole 3613 of the mounting base 4610 are switched, and the appearance of the shielded region P3 is changed. Can be changed.

  The mode of switching the display portion 3654a (see FIG. 43) viewed from the viewing hole 3613 can be arbitrarily selected depending on the control of the drive motor 3631 (see FIG. 52). That is, for example, by rotating the drive motor 3631 at a high speed (or low speed), the displays 3654a1 to 3654a4 (see FIG. 43) of the display portion 3654a viewed from the viewing hole 3613 can be switched at a high speed (or low speed). In addition, the timing for rotating (or stopping) the drive motor 3631 can be arbitrarily selected. Thereby, since the mode of switching of the displays 3654a1 to 3654a4 can be formed in various ways, the effect of the shielded region P3 can be improved.

  Here, in the present embodiment, the effect member 3654 is visible only from the visual recognition hole 3613, and the other parts are hidden by the attachment base 4610. Therefore, the attachment base 4610 is a kind of partly shielding the effect member 3654. It has the characteristic as a shielding member.

  That is, the mounting base 4610 is disposed so as to overlap at least partly on the movement locus of the effect member 3654 (see FIG. 43) and is disposed on the front side of the effect member 3654. Therefore, when the effect member 3654 is relatively moved (rotated) with respect to the mounting base 4610, the portion of the effect member 3654 that does not overlap the viewing hole 3613 becomes invisible, and the portion that overlaps the viewing hole 3613 of the effect member 3654 becomes visible. .

  Therefore, the change in the appearance in the shielded region P3 can be clearly grasped as the change in the visible portion of the effect member 3654 (see FIG. 43), and the change in the effect member 3654 changes the posture and position. A change in the appearance of the shielding region P3 can be easily distinguished.

  For example, as in the present embodiment, when the effect member (corresponding to the effect member 3654) is a rotating body having a rotation axis in the front-rear direction, when the effect member moves planarly in front view, There is only one type of pattern or display of the effect member that can be visually recognized if the phase difference is not distinguished. On the other hand, by arranging and fixing the shielding member (corresponding to the mounting base 4610) on the front side of the effect member, the visually recognizable portion of the effect member can be changed by moving the effect member. A plurality of types of patterns and displays can be visually recognized on the production member. In this case, it is conceivable that a plurality of types of patterns and displays are formed apart from each other on the effect member so that different patterns and displays can be visually recognized each time the effect member moves.

  Similarly, for example, unlike the present embodiment, the effect member (corresponding to the effect member 3654) is a rotating body having a rotation axis on a plane orthogonal to the front-rear direction, and a pattern or display is formed on the outer periphery of the rotating body. In the case of the production member, the half-round portion of the production member is always visible in the front view. The degree is low. On the other hand, by arranging and fixing a shielding member (corresponding to the mounting base 4610) on the front side of the production member, the visible portion of the production member can be restricted, and the unit that gives a sense of unity to the pattern and display is restricted. Therefore (because it may be a portion smaller than a semicircular unit), it is possible to improve the degree of freedom in forming a plurality of types of displays on the effect member. In addition, as a shielding member, the thing of the comb shape or ladder shape which overlaps with a movement locus | trajectory intermittently, the plate-shaped thing etc. which have opening are illustrated.

  In the third embodiment, the effect member 3654 (see FIG. 41) of the shielded device 3650 is rotated in conjunction with the swinging operation (rotation) of the arm member 3620 (see FIG. 41). The effect member 3654 (see FIG. 52) is rotated at a speed and angle unrelated (non-interlocking) with the swinging operation (rotation) of the member 4620, and the appearance of the shielded region P3 changes.

  According to this, for example, the arm member 4620 is arranged at the retracted position so that the shielded region P3 is invisible (see FIG. 58A), and the arm member 4620 is stopped at the retracted position. The effect member 3654 is rotated in advance to change the appearance of the shielded area P3, and the arm member 4620 is rotated again to make the shielded area P3 visible. Thus, the appearance of the shielded area P3 immediately before being hidden by the arm member 4620 (see FIG. 57A) and the shielded area P3 immediately after the shielding by the arm member 4620 is released (see FIG. 58B). The appearance can be different.

  Here, it is possible to change the appearance of the shielded region P3 by rotating the effect member 3654 in advance while the arm member 4620 is stopped so that the shielded region P3 becomes invisible. Can be achieved. For example, each time the arm member 4620 reciprocates between the extended position and the retracted position, the effect member 3654 is rotated by a predetermined angle by a ratchet mechanism (not shown) at a timing when the arm member 4620 makes the shielded region P3 invisible. Can also be achieved. However, in this case, since the rotation angle of the effect member 3654 depends on the number of reciprocations of the arm member 4620, the rotation angle of the effect member 3654 cannot be changed independently of the swing operation of the arm member 4620.

  Therefore, when it is desired to change the rotation angle of the effect member 3654 independently of the number of reciprocations of the arm member 4620, the above-described configuration in which the effect member 3654 is rotated by the drive motor 3631 (see FIG. 52) is effective. In addition, as a switching means, a one-way clutch gear or a ratchet mechanism etc. are illustrated, for example.

  According to the configuration in which the effect member 3654 described above is rotated by the drive motor 3631 (see FIG. 52), the arm member 4620 and the effect member 4615 are independent (in an unlinked manner) depending on the rotation direction of the drive shaft 3632 of the drive motor 3631. ) Since it is rotated, the arm member 4620 and the effect member 4615 cannot be rotated simultaneously. For this reason, the appearance of the shielded area P3 cannot be changed during the rotation of the arm member 4620, and the rendering effect may be insufficient. On the other hand, according to the present embodiment, the appearance of the shielded region P3 can be changed during the rotation of the arm member 4620 by moving the elevating member 4615 described above with the rotation of the arm member 4620. Here, the vertical movement of the elevating member 4615 will be described with reference to FIGS. 56 to 58 (a).

  The elevating member 4615 is moved by the magnet portion 4615Mg of the elevating member 4615 being attracted by the magnetic force generated between the magnet portion 4615Mg of the arm member 4620 and the magnet portion 4620Mg. Here, as described above, the magnet portion 4620Mg extends on the rear surface of the arm member 4620 in an obliquely downward left direction when viewed from the front. Therefore, as the arm member 4620 is rotated from the extended position to the retracted position, the magnet portion 4615Mg of the elevating member 4615 is moved along the extending direction of the magnet portion 4620Mg of the arm member 4620, and the elevating member 4615 is moved to the guide rail 4614. It is moved in the downward direction which is the extending direction.

  As shown in FIG. 56, when the arm member 4620 is disposed at the extended position, the elevating member 4615 is disposed at the raised position by the biasing spring 4616 (see FIG. 55). In this state, there is not enough magnetic force to move the elevating member 4615 between the magnet portion 4615Mg of the elevating member 4615 and the magnet portion 4620Mg of the arm member 4620.

  As shown in FIG. 57A, when the arm member 4620 is swung (rotated) by a predetermined amount from the extended position to the retracted position, the magnet portion 4615Mg of the elevating member 4615 and the magnet portion of the arm member 4620 A magnetic force is generated between 4620 Mg and the elevating member 4615 is moved downward in such a manner that the magnet portion 4615 Mg is attracted to the magnet portion 4620 Mg of the arm member 4620.

  As shown in FIG. 57 (b), when the arm member 4620 is further swung (rotated) from the state of FIG. 57 (a) toward the retracted position, the elevating / lowering member 4615 is further moved downward. This is because the elevating member 4615 is formed so as to be movable in the vertical direction (the vertical direction in FIG. 57), but the position where the magnet portion 4615Mg of the elevating member 4615 and the magnet portion 4620Mg of the arm member 4620 overlap in the vertical direction is shown in FIG. This is because it is moved downward from the state of (a).

  As shown in FIG. 58 (a), when the arm member 4620 is further swung (rotated) from the state shown in FIG. 57 (b) and the arm member 4620 is placed in the retracted position, the magnet portion 4615Mg of the elevating / lowering member 4615. And the magnet portion 4620Mg of the arm member 4620 are not overlapped in the vertical direction (the vertical direction in FIG. 58), the magnetic force for moving the elevating member 4615 downward is reduced, and the biasing spring 4616 (see FIG. 55A) is attached. The lifting member 4615 is returned to the raised position by the force. Thus, the appearance of the shielded area P3 can be changed by moving the elevating member 4615 while the arm member 4620 is rotating, and the effect of the shielded area P3 can be improved. In this embodiment, by moving the elevating member 4615, the “mini daruma” (see FIG. 57B) displayed on the front side of the mounting base 4610 can be visually recognized.

  Further, the moving speed of the elevating member 4615 can be changed depending on the degree of inclination of the magnet portion 4620Mg in addition to the speed of the swinging operation of the arm member 4620. That is, for example, if the degree of inclination of the magnet portion 4620Mg is tightened (the angle with respect to the short direction of the arm member 4620 is increased), the moving speed of the elevating member 4615 is increased. On the other hand, for example, if the degree of inclination of the magnet portion 4620Mg is relaxed (the angle with respect to the short direction of the arm member 4620 is reduced), the moving speed of the elevating / lowering member 4615 is reduced. Thereby, a variation can be given to the moving speed of the elevating member 4615, and the effect of the shielded region P3 having the elevating member 4615 can be improved.

  Next, a fifth embodiment will be described with reference to FIGS. 59 and 60. In 3rd Embodiment, although the case where the production | assistant auxiliary member 3513 (refer FIG.37 and FIG.50) of the shielding operation unit 3500 was moved by magnetic force was demonstrated, in the shielding operation unit 5500 of 5th Embodiment, the production | generation assistance member 5530 is demonstrated. Is brought into contact with and moved by the arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600. In addition, the same code | symbol is attached | subjected about the part same as said each embodiment, and the description is abbreviate | omitted.

  FIG. 59 is a rear perspective view of the shielding operation unit 5500 in the fifth embodiment. As shown in FIG. 59, the shielding operation unit 5500 is provided with an attachment base 5510 fastened and fixed to the front surface side of the swing operation unit 3600 (see FIG. 36), and rotatably disposed on the front surface side of the attachment base 5510. The above-described arm member 3520 and an effect assisting member 5530 disposed on the lower left side of the mounting base 5510 as viewed from the rear are mainly provided.

  The attachment base 5510 is formed in a long rectangular shape, and is attached with an opening 3511 formed below the attachment base 5510 and a lower left side of the opening 3511 in the rear view (lower left side in FIG. 59). A columnar shaft portion 5510a that protrudes rearward from the rear surface side of the base 5510, and a plate that protrudes from the rear surface side of the mounting base 5510 on the left side of the opening portion 3511 (left side in FIG. 59). And a wall portion 5510b.

  The shaft portion 5510a is a portion that rotatably supports an effect assisting member 5530 described later, and the wall portion 5510b is formed so as to be able to contact the rotating effect assisting member 5530. In the present embodiment, the shaft portion 5510a and the wall portion 5510b are formed with substantially the same protruding height.

  The production assisting member 5530 is formed of a resin material, the rod-like body is bent in an L shape, and a main body portion 5531 having an insertion hole opened in a direction perpendicular to the bending direction in the bent portion, and the main body portion 5531 A disc-shaped shielding portion 5532 disposed at one end, a contact portion 5533 protruding from the other end opposite to the one end, and a main body portion 5531 on the opposite side of the shielding portion 5532 across the main body portion 5531. And a weight part 5534 extending from the main part.

  The diameter of the insertion hole of the main body portion 5531 is slightly larger than the diameter of the shaft portion 5510a of the mounting base 5510, and the shaft portion 5510a is inserted into the insertion hole of the main body portion 5531 in the assembled state.

  The shield 5532 is formed such that the diameter of the disk is larger than the diameter of the black eyes of the “both eyes” in the swing operation unit 3600 (see FIG. 39), and an arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600 is formed as described later. When the effect assisting member 5530 is rotated by being arranged at the retracted position, it is formed so as to coincide with the position of one eye of the “both eyes” of the swinging operation unit 3600 (see FIG. 39).

  The contact portion 5533 protrudes rearward from the rear surface side of the main body portion 5531 in the assembled state (see FIG. 59), and swinging motion (see FIG. 39) in relation to the swinging operation unit 3600 (see FIG. 39) in the assembled state. It is formed with a projecting height capable of coming into contact with the arm member 3620 that rotates. In this embodiment, the contact portion 5533 and the side surface of the arm member 3620 (the right side surface of the arm member 3620 in FIG. 44) are in contact with each other. Therefore, when the arm member 3620 is swung to the retracted position, the contact portion 5533 is pushed, and the effect assisting member 5530 is rotated about the insertion shaft 5510a.

  The weight portion 5534 is formed to have a higher weight than other portions (for example, high density). Therefore, in the state where no external force is generated in the production assisting member 5530, the weight portion 5534 is disposed vertically downward (downward in FIG. 59) due to the action of gravity, and thus the shielding portion 5532 is disposed vertically above the insertion shaft 5510a. . Accordingly, the shielding portion 5532 can be hidden from the opening 3511 of the shielding operation unit 5500 at a position where it cannot be visually recognized.

  Here, with reference to FIG. 60, the relationship between the rotation operation of the arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600 and the movement of the effect assisting member 5530 will be described.

  60 (a) to 60 (c) show the mounting base 5510 of the shielding operation unit 5500, the arm member 3620 and the effect auxiliary member 5530 of the swing operation unit 3600 in the assembled state, and the arm member 3620 retracts from the extended position. It is the partial front schematic diagram of the attachment base 5510, the arm member 3620, and the production | presentation auxiliary member 5530 typically shown along the time series at the time of moving to a position.

  FIG. 60A shows a state immediately before the side surface of the arm member 3620 and the contact portion 5533 of the performance assisting member 5530 start to contact each other. In FIG. 60B, the arm member 3620 is rotated from the position of FIG. 60A toward the retracted position, and the effect assisting member 5530 that is in contact with the side surface of the arm member 3620 is further rotated by a predetermined amount. The state is illustrated. In FIG. 60C, the arm member 3620 is rotated until it is disposed at the retracted position, the effect assisting member 5530 is rotated, and the shielding part 5532 is displayed on the front surface of the arm member 3620. A state of being arranged at the position of one eye is illustrated.

  As shown in FIGS. 60A to 60C, the production assisting member 5530 is disposed on the front side of the swing operation unit 3600 and moves up and down as the arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600 rotates. At the same time, in the process of movement, the arm member 3620 is formed so as to be visually recognized.

  Here, the external appearance of the arm member 3620 is visible when the arm member 3620 is disposed at the overhanging position (see FIG. 51A), and therefore the arm member 3620 is passed through the shielded region P2 (see FIG. 38). In some cases, the appearance of the camera can be predicted and lacks unexpectedness, and it cannot be said that the production effect is sufficient.

  On the other hand, according to the present embodiment, when the arm member 3620 is disposed at the retracted position, the arm member 3620 and the shielding portion 5532 of the performance assisting member 5530 overlap each other, so that the shielded region P2 (see FIG. 38). ), The appearance when the arm member 3620 is visually recognized can be different from the appearance that can be expected from the arm member 3620 alone.

  In addition, according to the present embodiment, the production assistance member 5530 is brought into contact with the side surface of the arm member 3620 of the swing operation unit 3600 and is rotated by being pushed by the arm member 3620. Therefore, the production assistance member 5530 is designed. The degree of freedom can be increased.

  That is, for example, when the production assistance member 5530 is moved by a magnetic force, the necessary magnetic force increases if the production assistance member 5530 has a large mass or shape. Here, in order to increase the magnetic force, it is necessary to improve the characteristics of the magnet. However, if the characteristics of the magnet are improved, the magnet becomes expensive and the component cost increases. Therefore, it is difficult to increase the size of the production member because the production auxiliary member 5530 is large in size, and the appearance of the arm member 3620 is increased by increasing the overlapping portion of the production auxiliary member 5530 and the arm member 3620 in front view. It is difficult to change greatly.

  On the other hand, according to the present embodiment, the effect assisting member 5530 is rotated by the force generated by directly contacting the arm member 3620, and thus the driving force of the arm member 3620 can be used for the rotation of the effect assisting member 5530. A larger production assisting member 5530 can be employed. Therefore, the appearance of the arm member 3620 and the appearance when the effect assisting member 5530 and the arm member 3620 overlap can be greatly changed.

  Further, in this embodiment, when the large driving force that the arm member 3620 rotates in the direction of gravity (when rotating from the extended position to the retracted position) is not required, the side surface of the arm member 3620 acts as the effect assisting member 5530. Since the contact is made, the driving force required for the drive motor 3631 (see FIG. 39) for driving the arm member 3620 can be suppressed. That is, the capacity of the drive motor 3631 can be kept small.

  Next, a sixth embodiment will be described with reference to FIG. In 1st Embodiment, although the case where the external appearance of the to-be-shielded area | region P1 (refer FIG. 11) was changed using the movable member 310 (refer FIG. 9) which is a windmill arrange | positioned at the game board 13 was demonstrated, In the sixth embodiment, a retractable member 6330 is disposed on the front surface of the game board 13. In addition, the same code | symbol is attached | subjected about the part same as said each embodiment, and the description is abbreviate | omitted.

  FIG. 61 (a) is a partially enlarged perspective view of the protruding member 6330, the rack member 6340, and the second gear 322 in the state of being disposed on the game board 13 in the sixth embodiment, and FIG. 61 (b) and FIG. 61 (c) is a schematic cross-sectional view of the game board 13, the retracting member 6330, and the rack member 6340 in a cross-sectional view in a plane parallel to the side surface of the game board 13. FIG. 61 (b) schematically shows a state in which the protruding member 6330 is arranged at the first position, and FIG. 61 (c) schematically shows a state in which the protruding member 6330 is arranged at the second position. Indicated. In FIG. 61 (a), the lower side of the drawing is the front side of the game board 13, and the game board 13 is partially illustrated and partially viewed in cross section. 61 (b) and 61 (c) are cross-sectional views on a plane passing through the protruding member 6330, and in FIGS. 61 (b) and 61 (c), the left side of the drawing is the game board 13. The front side.

  The sunk member 6330 is pivotally supported by an opening opened in the front-rear direction on the game board 13 so as to be rotatable in the front-rear direction, and projects to the front surface of the game board 13 (see FIG. 61B). It is a member that can be placed in a second position (see FIG. 61 (c)) that sinks backward from the front surface of the game board 13, and is usually placed in the first position, but the sphere is placed on the front surface of the protruding member 6330. When it passes, the ball is pushed by the ball and moved to the second position. In addition, in the state where the protruding member 6330 is disposed at the first position, the effect member 442 (see FIG. 16B) is disposed and stopped at the initial position described above, and thus the effect member 442 cannot rotate in the circumferential direction. The second gear 322 locked to the second gear 322 is stopped, the rack member 6340 engaged with the second gear 322 is stopped, and the protruding member 6330 engaged with the rack member 6340 is maintained in the first position. The

  As shown in FIG. 61 (a), the withdrawal member 6330 is a member that is disposed in the opening portion opened in the front-rear direction of the game board 13 so as to be able to sink into the front side of the game board 13, and has a sector shape. A main body portion 6331 having a plate shape, teeth 6332 engraved on the curved surface of the main body portion 6331, and a shaft support portion (not shown) of the game board 13 that is coaxially projected from one end of the main body portion 6331 in the thickness direction. And a pair of rotating shaft portions 6333 that are pivotally supported by the main body, and are integrally formed from a resin material. The protruding member 6330 is supported by a shaft support (not shown) so as to be rotatable in the front-rear direction of the game board 13.

  The rack member 6340 is a member that is driven by the squeezing member 6330, and has a long bar-shaped main body 6341 having a rectangular cross section and a side surface of the squeezing member 6330 that faces the squeezing member 6330. Teeth 6342a engraved on the teeth 6332 so as to be able to mesh with each other; teeth 6342b engraved on the side faces of the main body 6341 facing the second gear 322 so as to be able to mesh with the teeth 322b of the second gear 322; And is formed so as to be slidable relative to the game board 13 by being guided by a guide portion (not shown).

  With the above-described configuration, the second gear 322 is engaged with the rack member 6340 and the rack member 6340 is engaged with the protruding member 6330, so that the second gear 322 rotates due to the rotation of the protruding member 6330. Is done.

  As shown in FIGS. 61 (b) and 61 (c), the sphere flows down the front of the sunk member 6330, the sphere collides with the sunk member 6330, and the sunk member 6330 is moved in the front-rear direction of the game board 13. When rotated, the rack member 6340 engaged with the protruding member 6330 is slid upward (FIG. 61 (b) upward). At the same time, the second gear 322 engaged with the rack member 6340 is rotated, so that the rotational force of the retracting member 6330 can be transmitted to the second gear 322. Since the first effect member 442 is locked to the second gear 322 in a non-rotatable manner (see FIG. 20), as a result, the first effect member 442 is rotated by rotating the retracting member 6330. Then (see FIGS. 22B and 22C), the appearance of the shielded area P1 is changed (see FIG. 11).

  Here, unlike the windmill, the recessed member 6330 that can be recessed with respect to the game board 13 can be disposed at a place that can be seen by the player or at a place that cannot be seen. In particular, when it is desired that the rotation of the first effect member 442 (see FIG. 18A) is unexpected for the player, it is preferable to dispose the protruding member 6330 in a place where it cannot be visually recognized. In this case, since the player cannot visually recognize that the ball collides with the protruding member 6330, the first effect member 442 suddenly starts moving, and the appearance of the shielded area P1 (see FIG. 11) suddenly changes. Can do.

  Further, since the retracting member 6330 is structured to rotate in the front-rear direction of the game board 13, the sphere can flow down the front side of the retracting member 6330. Therefore, it is not necessary to separate the flow path of the sphere and the arrangement position of the protruding member 6330 on the front surface of the game board 13. Therefore, the freedom degree of the arrangement | positioning location of the protrusion member 6330 can be improved.

  Although the present invention has been described based on the above embodiment, the present invention is not limited to the above embodiment, and various modifications can be easily made without departing from the spirit of the present invention. It can be guessed.

  The pachinko machine 10 may be configured by combining or replacing part or all of the configuration in one of the above embodiments with part or all of the configuration of the other embodiments.

  In the first embodiment, it has been described that the indications 442R, 442N, and 442L are sized to fit within the inner diameter of the visual recognition hole 441c of the first shielding member. However, the present invention is not necessarily limited thereto, and the indications 442R, 442N, and 442L However, it may be formed so as to protrude from the inner diameter of the visual recognition hole 441c of the first shielding member. In this case, the display 442R, 442N, and 442L are partly visually recognized, so that the player's interest is attracted. Therefore, the effect as the effect portion of the shielded area P1 can be improved.

  In the first embodiment, the case where the first effect member 442 has a sector shape and is urged to the initial position by the urging force of the urging spring 443 has been described. However, the present invention is not necessarily limited to this. The member 442 may be formed in a circular shape with the cylindrical shaft portion 442b as the center and the biasing spring 443 may be eliminated. In this case, if the movable member 310 continues to rotate in one rotation direction due to the collision of the sphere, the first effect member 442 continues to rotate due to this. At this time, if the patterns formed on the displays 442R, 442N, and 442L are viewed in succession in order, the first effect member 442 is rotated at a high speed. Thus, the displays 442R, 442N, and 442L visually recognized from the visual recognition hole 441c are visually recognized in a moving form like an animation. Thereby, the effect of the shielded area P1 can be improved.

  In the second embodiment, when the restriction by the side wall 460a of the elevating member 460 is released, the second effect member 2453 is rotated at the end point of rotation (the display portion 2453c of the second effect member 2453 from the visual hole 2451d of the second shielding member 2451). Until the arrangement shown in FIG. 30B is reached with the second effect member 2453 and the elevating member 460 in contact with each other (the spring constant of the biasing spring 2454 is sufficiently large). However, the present invention is not necessarily limited to this, and the contact with the elevating member 460 may be released during the rotation of the second effect member 2453 (the spring constant of the biasing spring 2454 is small). . In this case, after the restriction by the elevating member 460 is released, a time delay occurs until the second effect member 2453 is visually recognized from the visual recognition hole 2451d of the second shielding member 2451, as if interlocked with the operation of the elevating member 460. It can be recognized that the second effect member 2453 has been rotated. Therefore, the change in the appearance of the shielded area P1 can be made more surprising.

  In the third embodiment, the case where the opening 3511 is formed in the shielding operation unit 3500 and the swinging operation unit 3600 can be visually recognized through the opening 3511 has been described. 3510 may be formed of a transparent resin material, and the swinging operation unit 3600 may be visually recognized through the attachment base 3510. In this case, when the attachment base 3510 is formed in a colored color, the swinging operation unit 3600 is visually recognized through the color. Therefore, the color of the rocking motion unit 3600 when visually recognized through the mounting base 3510 can be different from the color of the rocking motion unit 3600 when directly viewed without passing through the mounting base 3510. It is possible to produce a production that is surprising to the user.

  In the third embodiment, each display 3654a1 to 3654a4 of the effect member 3654 that can be visually recognized through the visual recognition hole 3613 of the swinging operation unit 3600 has a different pattern, but the display is not necessarily limited to this. A plurality of any of 3654a1 to 3654a4 may have the same pattern. For example, the display 3654a1, 3654a2, and 3654a3 may each be formed with a “black circle” pattern, and only the display 3654a4 may be formed with a “¥” pattern. In this case, the probability that the “black circle” pattern is visually recognized from the viewing hole 3613 is three times the probability that the “¥” pattern is visually recognized from the viewing hole 3613, thereby increasing the rare value of the “¥” pattern. Can do. Also, in the aspect in which the patterns of the respective displays 3654a1 to 3654a4 change in order as in the third embodiment, it is difficult to understand which of the respective displays 3654a1 to 3654a4 is currently visible, and when “¥” It can be difficult to judge whether or not the pattern becomes visible. Thereby, attention to the visual recognition hole 3613 included in the shielded region P3 can be improved.

  You may implement this invention in the pachinko machine etc. of a different type from said each embodiment. For example, once a big hit, a pachinko machine that raises the expected value of the big hit until a big hit state occurs (for example, two times or three times) including that (for example, a two-time right item, a three-time right item) May also be implemented. Further, after the jackpot symbol is displayed, it may be implemented as a pachinko machine that generates a special game that gives a player a predetermined game value on the condition that a ball is won in a predetermined area. Further, the present invention may be implemented in a pachinko machine that has a special area such as a V zone and has a special gaming state as a necessary condition that a special ball is awarded to the special area. Further, in addition to the pachinko machine, the game machine may be implemented as various game machines such as an alepatchi, a sparrow ball, a slot machine, a game machine in which a so-called pachinko machine and a slot machine are integrated.

  In the slot machine, for example, a symbol is changed by operating a control lever in a state where a symbol effective line is determined by inserting coins, and a symbol is stopped and confirmed by operating a stop button. Is. Accordingly, the basic concept of the slot machine is that it is provided with a display device for confirming and displaying the identification information after variably displaying the identification information string composed of a plurality of identification information, and resulting from the operation of the starting operation means (for example, the operation lever). The variation display of the identification information is started, and the variation display of the identification information is stopped and fixedly displayed due to the operation of the operation means for stop (for example, the stop button) or when a predetermined time elapses. It is a slot machine that generates a special game that gives a player a predetermined game value on the condition that the combination of identification information at the time is a specific condition. In this case, the game medium is typically a coin, medal, etc. Take as an example.

  In addition, as a specific example of a gaming machine in which a pachinko machine and a slot machine are fused, a display device is provided that displays a symbol after a symbol string composed of a plurality of symbols is variably displayed, and has a handle for launching a ball. What is not. In this case, after throwing a predetermined amount of spheres based on a predetermined operation (button operation), for example, the change of the symbol is started due to the operation of the operation lever, for example, due to the operation of the stop button, or With the passage of time, the variation of the symbol is stopped, and a special game that gives a predetermined game value to the player is generated on the condition that the determined symbol at the time of stoppage is a so-called jackpot symbol. In this case, a large amount of balls are paid out to the lower tray. If such a gaming machine is used in place of a slot machine, only a ball can be handled as a gaming value in the gaming hall. Therefore, the gaming value seen in the current gaming hall where pachinko machines and slot machines are mixed Problems such as the burden on equipment due to the separate handling of medals and balls and restrictions on the location of the gaming machine can be solved.

  The concept of various inventions included in the above-described embodiment in addition to the gaming machine of the present invention is shown below.

  A moving member formed to be movable between a first position and a second position; and a driving means for generating a driving force for moving the moving member, wherein the moving member is at the first position. When arranged, it is an area that is not visible in front view by being shielded by the moving member, and is visible in front view when the moving member is disposed at least in the second position. A gaming machine A0 having a shielded area that is a region to be formed, wherein an appearance of at least a part of the shielded area is formed to be changeable.

  According to the gaming machine A0, since the appearance of at least a part of the shielded area is formed to be changeable, the shielded area can be effectively used as a production part.

  Here, in a gaming machine such as a pachinko machine, a moving member formed to be movable between a first position and a second position, and a driving means for generating a driving force for moving the moving member, In the case where the moving member is disposed at the first position, the moving member is shielded by the moving member so that the moving member is not visible in front view, and the moving member is disposed at least at the second position. There is a gaming machine having a shielded area that is visible in a front view (see, for example, JP 2011-182984 A). However, in the conventional gaming machine described above, only a pattern or a display is provided in the shielded area, and the ability as an effect part to draw attention to the player is low, and the shielded area is effectively used as an effect part. It was hard to say.

  On the other hand, according to the gaming machine A0, since the appearance of at least a part of the shielded area is formed to be changeable, for example, when the moving member is arranged at the second position and the shielded area becomes visible. By changing the appearance of the shielded area, it is possible to improve the ability of the shielded area as an effect part and effectively use the shielded area as the effect part.

  The gaming machine A0 includes an effect member that is disposed in the shielded area and is movable in accordance with the movement of the moving member, and the appearance of the shielded area is improved by moving the effect member. A gaming machine A1 characterized by being changed.

  According to the gaming machine A1, in addition to the effects produced by the gaming machine A0, an effect member that is disposed in the shielded area and is movable in accordance with the movement of the moving member is provided, and the effect member is moved. Thus, since the appearance of the shielded area is changed, a separate driving unit for driving the effect member can be eliminated. Therefore, the number of drive units disposed can be suppressed, and the part cost can be reduced accordingly. In addition, by suppressing the number of driving means, the degree of freedom of arranging the effect member and the moving member can be improved in a limited space.

  Here, when the effect member moves in response to the movement of the moving member, the effect member moves by receiving force directly from the moving member or indirectly via a gear, a link mechanism, or the like, When the effect member is biased in one direction and the moving member is arranged at a predetermined position, the effect member is restricted from moving by the moving member, but when the moving member is moved from the predetermined position, It means that the restriction is released and the effect member starts moving in one direction.

  In addition, the manner of movement of the moving member or effect member is not particularly limited, and for example, the moving member or effect member may be rotatably supported and the moving member or effect member may be rotated or swinged. For example, the moving member or the effect member may be translated.

  In the gaming machine A1, the speed ratio at the same time point between the speed at which the moving member moves between the first position and the second position and the speed at which the effect member moves is such that the moving member has the first speed. The gaming machine A2 is formed to be changeable in the process of moving between one position and the second position.

  According to the gaming machine A2, in addition to the effect produced by the gaming machine A1, the speed ratio at the same time point between the speed at which the moving member moves between the first position and the second position and the speed at which the effect member moves is Since the moving member is formed to be changeable in the process of moving between the first position and the second position, the effect of the effect member can be improved.

  That is, when the speed ratio of the moving member and the moving speed of the effect member is constant, each speed change from the start of movement of the moving member to the effect member corresponds to the proportional relationship. The production effect tends to be monotonous.

  On the other hand, according to the gaming machine A2, since the moving member and the effect member are formed to move while changing the speed ratio of the respective moving speeds, the speed change of the moving member and the speed change of the effect member. Can be prevented from being proportionally related. Therefore, it is possible to suppress the movement of the moving member and the effect member from being monotonous and improve the effect.

  For example, if the moving member rotates at the same speed while the effect member rotates in the same direction as the moving member, but the initial speed is smaller than the moving member speed and the maximum speed is larger than the moving member speed, the moving member During the movement, the effect that the phase of the effect member overtakes the phase of the moving member can be provided, so that it is possible to produce an effect as if the moving member and the effect member move independently.

  In the gaming machine A2, in a process in which the moving member moves between the first position and the second position, a moving state in which the effect member moves and a stopped state in which the effect member stops moving. A gaming machine A3 that can be formed.

  According to the gaming machine A3, in addition to the effects produced by the gaming machine A2, in the process in which the moving member moves between the first position and the second position, the moving state in which the effect member moves, and the effect member moves. Since the stop state that stops can be formed, while the moving member continues to move, the effect member differs between the moving state (with speed) and the stopped state (without speed). Two aspects can be taken. Therefore, the change in the speed ratio between the moving member and the effect member can be made more remarkable, and the effect effect of the effect member can be improved.

  The gaming machine A3 includes a biasing unit that applies a biasing force in one direction to the effect member, and the effect member is moved by the biasing force of the biasing unit until the moving member reaches a predetermined position. The effect member continues the stop state by being restricted by the moving member, and when the moving member passes a predetermined position, the restriction by the moving member is released and the effect member is A gaming machine A4 which is formed so as to be able to shift to a moving state, and in which a moving member is moved in one direction.

  According to the gaming machine A4, in addition to the effect produced by the gaming machine A3, the gaming machine A4 includes biasing means for applying a biasing force in one direction to the performance member, and the performance member is moved by the biasing force of the biasing means, Until the position reaches the predetermined position, the effect member continues to be stopped by being restricted by the movement member, and when the movement member passes the predetermined position, the restriction by the movement member is released, It is formed so that it can be moved to the moving state, and the moving member is moved in one direction. Therefore, for a player who predicts the moving mode of the effect member based on the moving mode of the moving member, the moving mode of the effect member is Can be.

  That is, for example, when the moving member and the effect member are mechanically coupled, the magnitude of the moving speed of the effect member depends on the magnitude of the moving speed of the moving member, so when the moving member moves at a constant speed, It is difficult to greatly change the speed of the production member.

  On the other hand, according to the gaming machine A4, since the movement of the effect member depends on the urging force of the urging means, the magnitude of the movement speed of the effect member does not depend on the magnitude of the movement speed of the moving member. Therefore, when the moving member and the effect member are mechanically coupled, the effect member can have a speed change that is difficult to form, and as a result, the player can perform an unexpected operation of the player.

  Here, examples of the urging means for applying the urging force toward the effect member include a spring such as a coil spring or a torsion spring, an elastic material such as rubber or urethane, or a magnet.

  In the gaming machine A1 or A2, when the moving member moves in the first direction, the effect member moves corresponding to the movement of the moving member, and the moving member is in a direction opposite to the first direction. A gaming machine A5 that stops when moving in the second direction.

  According to the gaming machine A5, in addition to the effects produced by the gaming machine A1 or A2, the effect member moves in response to the movement of the moving member when the moving member moves in the first direction, and the moving member is the first. Since it stops when moving in the second direction, which is the opposite direction of the direction, the operation mode of the effect member can be changed in two modes depending on the moving direction of the moving member.

  Here, in a gaming machine such as a pachinko machine, a moving member formed to be movable between a first position and a second position, and a driving means for generating a driving force for moving the moving member, In the case where the moving member is disposed at the first position, the moving member is shielded by the moving member so that the moving member is not visible in front view, and the moving member is disposed at least at the second position. There is a gaming machine having a shielded area that is visible in a front view (see, for example, JP 2011-182984 A). However, in the conventional gaming machine described above, only a pattern or display is provided in the shielded area, and the ability as an effect part to draw attention to the player is low, and the shielded area is effectively used as the effect part. It was hard to say.

  Therefore, the applicant of the present application is provided with an effect member that is arranged in the shielded area and movable in accordance with the movement of the moving member in addition to the above-described gaming machine, and the effect member is moved. Has developed a gaming machine in which the appearance of the shielded area is changed (not known at the time of filing this application). However, in this case, the effect member is formed so as to move in accordance with the movement of the moving member both when the moving member moves in the first direction and when the moving member moves in the second direction opposite to the first direction. Since the effect member moves in response to the movement of the moving member regardless of the moving direction of the moving member, for example, the shielded region is not moved only when the moving member moves in the second direction. It is difficult to maintain a constant appearance.

  On the other hand, according to the gaming machine A5, when the moving member moves in the first direction, the effect member moves corresponding to the movement of the moving member, and when the moving member moves in the second direction Since the member stops, the appearance of the shielded area can be maintained constant only when the moving member moves in the second direction. For example, a configuration in which the effect member is stopped when the effect member displays a character or the like that is easily grasped in a stationary state is effective.

  In addition, the mode of movement of the moving member or the effect member is not particularly limited. For example, the moving member or the effect member may be rotatably supported and the moving member or the effect member may be rotated or swinged. For example, the moving member or the effect member may be translated.

  In the gaming machine A5, the effect member is formed to be able to return to the initial position when the moving member reciprocates a predetermined number of times between the first position and the second position after being arranged at the initial position. When the moving member makes one reciprocation between the first position and the second position, the effect member moves a distance from the initial position and returns to the initial position by a distance obtained by dividing the path by the predetermined number of times. A gaming machine A6 that moves.

  According to the gaming machine A6, in addition to the effects achieved by the gaming machine A5, the effect member returns to the initial position when the moving member reciprocates a predetermined number of times between the first position and the second position after being placed at the initial position. When the moving member reciprocates once between the first position and the second position, the effect member moves by a distance obtained by dividing the route from the initial position to the return to the initial position. The position and orientation of the effect member can be changed for each reciprocation of the moving member, and as a result, the appearance of the shielded area can be changed for each reciprocation of the moving member.

  In the gaming machine A5 or A6, the first direction is a direction in which the moving member is moved in the direction along the gravity direction, and the second direction is a direction along the direction in which the moving member is opposed to the gravity direction. A gaming machine A7, which is a direction to be moved to.

  According to the gaming machine A7, in addition to the effects produced by the gaming machine A5 or A6, the first direction is a direction in which the moving member is moved along the direction of gravity, and the second direction is the direction in which the moving member is moved in the direction of gravity. Since it is the direction to move in the direction along the opposing direction, it is possible to suppress the driving force of the driving means used for both the movement of the moving member and the movement of the effect member.

  That is, when two members are driven by a single driving means, it is necessary to generate a driving force that exceeds the resistance applied to each member, and it is difficult to reduce the size of the driving means.

  On the other hand, according to the gaming machine A7, when the moving member is moved in the first direction along the direction of gravity, the gravity assists the movement of the moving member, and the moving member and the effect member are operated simultaneously. Even if it is made to do, since a drive force may be small, a drive means can be reduced in size.

  On the other hand, when moving the moving member in the second direction along the direction opposite to the gravity direction, it is necessary to increase the driving force by the amount of gravity, but by stopping the effect member, The driving force to be moved becomes unnecessary, and as a result, the driving force required for the driving means can be reduced.

  In any one of the gaming machines A5 to A7, the driving means includes a rotating body that rotates about a first axis, and a pin member that protrudes from the rotating body and is eccentrically positioned on the first axis, The moving member includes a guide portion that guides the pin member, and is rotated between the first position and the second position about a second axis, and at least one of the first position and the second position. The gaming machine A8 is characterized in that a direction perpendicular to a straight line connecting the pin member and the first shaft and an extending direction of the guide portion coincide with each other.

  According to the gaming machine A8, in addition to the effect of any of the gaming machines A5 to A7, when the moving member starts to rotate from the state where it is disposed at the first position or the second position, Since the moving direction and the extending direction of the guide portion coincide with each other, it is possible to suppress the resistance that the pin member receives from the guide portion at the start of movement. Therefore, it is possible to reduce the driving force required at the start of the operation that requires the greatest force.

  In the gaming machine A8, when the moving member is disposed in at least one of the first position or the second position, the direction connecting the first shaft and the pin member is the second shaft and the pin A gaming machine A9 characterized by being orthogonal to a direction connecting members.

  According to the gaming machine A9, in addition to the effect produced by the gaming machine A8, when the moving member is disposed at at least one of the first position and the second position, the direction connecting the first shaft and the pin member is Since it is orthogonal to the direction connecting the two axes and the pin member, the pin member can be positioned at the dead point in the relationship between the rotating body and the moving member. Thereby, even if the driving force from the driving means is not required, the moving member can be mechanically held at at least one of the first position and the second position, so that the effect of suppressing the energy consumption of the driving means can be remarkable.

  In any of the gaming machines A1 to A9, when the production member is viewed from the front, the movement locus of the production member is disposed at least partially overlapping with the production member, and disposed on the front side of the production member. A gaming machine A10, comprising: a shielding member that changes at least a part of the effect member that is visible by moving relative to the effect member.

  According to the gaming machine A10, in addition to the effect produced by any of the gaming machines A1 to A9, at least a part of the effect member is moved on the trajectory of the effect member, and is also provided on the front side of the effect member. Since the shielding member is provided, when the shielding member and the effect member move relative to each other, a portion that overlaps the shielding member of the effect member becomes invisible, and a portion that does not overlap the shielding member of the effect member becomes visible. Therefore, as the effect member and the shielding member are moved relative to each other, at least a part of the effect member that can be visually recognized in front view can be changed. It is possible to clearly grasp the change in the visible part of the image, and it is possible to easily distinguish the change in the appearance of the shielded region as compared with the change mode in which the effect member changes the posture and the position.

  For example, if the effect member is planar in the front view as in the case where the effect member is a rotating body having a rotation axis in the front-rear direction, the pattern or display of the effect member visible in the front view is a phase. If there is no difference, there is one type. On the other hand, by arranging and fixing the shielding member on the front side of the effect member, the visually recognizable part of the effect member can be changed by moving the effect member, so that multiple types of patterns and displays can be made. It can be visually recognized with a production member. In this case, it is conceivable that a plurality of types of patterns and displays are formed apart from each other on the effect member so that different patterns and displays can be visually recognized each time the effect member moves.

  Similarly, for example, when the effect member is a rotator having a rotation axis on a plane orthogonal to the front-rear direction, and the pattern or display is formed on the outer periphery of the rotator, the effect member is always half the circumference in front view. Therefore, in consideration of giving a sense of unity to the pattern and display in units of half a circle, the degree of freedom in forming a plurality of types of display on the effect member is low. On the other hand, by arranging and fixing the shielding member on the front side of the production member, the visible portion of the production member can be restricted, and the unit that gives a sense of unity to the pattern and display is restricted. The degree of freedom in forming the type of display can be improved.

  In addition, as a shielding member, the thing of the comb shape or ladder shape which overlaps with a movement locus | trajectory intermittently, the plate-shaped thing etc. which have opening are illustrated.

  In the gaming machine A0, a game board in which a game ball flows down, a movable member that is disposed on the game board and is movable when the game ball collides, and is disposed in the shielded area, A gaming machine B1 comprising: an effect member movable in accordance with the movement of the movable member, wherein the appearance of the shielded area is changed by moving the effect member.

  According to the gaming machine B1, in addition to the effects played by the gaming machine A0, a gaming board on which the gaming ball flows down, a movable member that is disposed on the gaming board and is movable when the gaming ball collides, And an effect member that is arranged in the shielding area and is movable in accordance with the movement of the movable member, and the appearance of the shielded area is changed by moving the effect member. Changes in the appearance of the area can be irregular.

  Here, in a gaming machine such as a pachinko machine, a moving member formed to be movable between a first position and a second position, and a driving means for generating a driving force for moving the moving member, In the case where the moving member is disposed at the first position, the moving member is shielded by the moving member so that the moving member is not visible in front view, and the moving member is disposed at least at the second position. There is a gaming machine having a shielded area that is visible in a front view (see, for example, JP 2011-182984 A). In the conventional gaming machine described above, only a pattern or a display is provided in the shielded area, and the ability as an effect part to draw attention to the player is low, and the shielded area is effectively used as the effect part. It was hard to say.

  Therefore, the applicant of the present application is provided with an effect member that is arranged in the shielded area and movable in accordance with the movement of the moving member in addition to the above-described gaming machine, and the effect member is moved. Has developed a gaming machine in which the appearance of the shielded area is changed (not known at the time of filing this application). However, in this case, since the effect member moves in response to the movement of the moving member, the effect member moves regularly with respect to the movement of the moving member. As a result, the change in the appearance of the shielded region is regular. Met.

  On the other hand, according to the gaming machine B1, the movable member moves when the game ball collides, and the effect member moves in response to the movement of the movable member. Depends on how it flows. Therefore, the effect member can be moved irregularly due to the irregularity of the game ball, and as a result, the appearance of the shielded area can be irregularly changed.

  Here, the irregularity of the game sphere is characterized by the fact that the game ball flows down while colliding with a nail arranged on the game board, and the game ball flows down while changing its direction and speed irregularly. Since all do not collide with the movable member, this means that the frequency at which the game ball collides with the movable member also changes irregularly.

  For example, examples of the movable member include a windmill disposed so as to be rotatable with respect to the game board, a retracted member disposed so as to be retractable with respect to the game board, and the like. In the case of a windmill, since it is a component that is normally arranged on the game board, it can prevent an increase in product cost even when used as a movable member, and the appearance of rotation of the windmill itself and movement of the production member can be prevented. It is possible to make it related, and the production effect can be increased.

  In the case where the movable member is a sunk member that can be sunk with respect to the game board, the sunk member can be disposed at a location that is visible to the player or at a location that is not visible. In particular, when it is desired to make the movement of the effect member unexpected for the player, it is preferable to dispose the protruding member in a place where it cannot be visually recognized. In this case, since the player cannot visually recognize that the game ball collides with the withdrawal member, it is possible to produce an effect that the effect member suddenly starts moving.

  Here, the mode of movement of the moving member, the effect member, or the movable member is not particularly limited. For example, the moving member, the effect member, or the movable member is rotatably supported by the moving member, the effect member, or the movable member. May be rotated or oscillated. For example, the moving member, the effect member, or the movable member may be moved in parallel.

  In the gaming machine B1, a speed ratio between the moving speed of the movable member and the moving speed of the effect member is constant.

  According to the gaming machine B2, in addition to the effect produced by the gaming machine B1, the speed ratio between the moving speed of the movable member and the moving speed of the effect member is constant. Can be moved irregularly, and accordingly, the movement of the effect member can be ensured to be irregular.

  That is, when the speed ratio between the moving speed of the movable member and the moving speed of the effect member is indefinite, for example, regarding the moving speed, the magnitude of the moving speed of the effect member is corresponding to the magnitude of the moving speed of the movable member. On the other hand, the moving speed of the effect member may not correspond to the moving speed of the movable member. Here, in the former case, the irregularity of the game ball is transmitted to the effect member, but in the latter case, the speed of the game ball is averaged and the irregularity of the game ball appears in the effect member. It can be difficult.

  On the other hand, according to the gaming machine B2, since the speed ratio between the moving speed of the movable member and the moving speed of the effect member is constant, the moving speed of the effect member becomes small when the moving speed of the movable member is small. When the moving speed of the movable member is high, only the relationship in which the moving speed of the effect member is high is formed. Therefore, it can be ensured that the movable member moves irregularly due to the collision of game balls having irregularity, and the movement of the effect member becomes irregular accordingly.

  In the gaming machine B1 or B2, the movable member is arranged to be rotatable with respect to the game board in one rotation direction and another rotation direction opposite to the one rotation direction. And the effect member moves in a direction corresponding to the rotation direction of the movable member.

  According to the gaming machine B3, in addition to the effects produced by the gaming machine B1 or B2, the movable member is a rotating body that can rotate in the left-right direction, and the effect member moves in a direction corresponding to the rotational direction of the movable member. The irregularity of the game ball colliding with the member can be used for the effect of moving the effect member in an irregular direction.

  In the gaming machine B3, the gaming machine B4 is provided with urging means that urges the effect member toward an initial position and generates an urging force that increases as the effect member moves away from the initial position.

  According to the gaming machine B4, in addition to the effect produced by the gaming machine B3, the effecting member is urged toward the initial position, and the urging means that generates an urging force that increases as the effecting member is moved away from the initial position is provided. The method of moving the effect member can be varied depending on the difference between the rotational force of the movable member and the urging force of the urging means.

  Specifically, as the effect member is moved away from the initial position, the urging force that the urging means urges the effect member toward the initial position increases, so that the game ball is in the same condition (speed and direction) as the movable member. Even when a collision occurs and the movable member rotates in the same mode (speed, direction), the method of moving the effect member can be varied.

  For example, when the effect member is arranged at the initial position, the urging force that the urging means urges the effect member toward the initial position is small, so the rotational force of the movable member exceeds the urging force of the urging means. The production member is easy to move. On the other hand, for example, when the effect member is arranged away from the initial position, the urging force that the urging means urges the effect member toward the initial position becomes large, so the movable member initially sets the effect member. The rotational force in the case of rotating in the direction away from the position is canceled out by the biasing force, and the effect member becomes difficult to move. Therefore, even when the game ball collides with the movable member under the same conditions (speed and direction) and the movable member rotates in the same mode (speed and direction), the method of moving the production member differs depending on the arrangement of the production members. It is possible to ensure irregularity in the way the production member moves.

  Further, when the effect member is arranged away from the initial position and the movable member rotates in a direction further away from the initial position, the urging force of the urging means and the rotation force of the effect member are offset, Although the moving amount of the effect member is small, when the movable member rotates in the direction to bring the effect member closer to the initial position, the moving direction of the effect member matches the direction in which the urging force of the urging means faces. And the urging force of the urging means are combined, and the amount of movement of the effect member increases. Here, since the urging force increases as the effect member moves away from the initial position, the difference in the amount of movement of the effect member caused by the difference in the rotation direction of the movable member becomes more significant as the effect member moves away from the initial position. Therefore, it is possible to ensure irregularity in the way the effect member moves.

  In any of the gaming machines B1 to B4, when the production member is viewed from the front, at least a part of the movement locus of the production member overlaps and is arranged on the front side of the production member. A gaming machine B5, comprising a shielding member that changes at least a part of the effect member that is visible by moving relative to the effect member.

  According to the gaming machine B5, in addition to the effects produced by any of the gaming machines B1 to B4, at least a portion is arranged on the movement path of the production member and arranged on the front side of the production member. Since the shielding member is provided, when the shielding member and the effect member move relative to each other, a portion that overlaps the shielding member of the effect member becomes invisible, and a portion that does not overlap the shielding member of the effect member becomes visible. Therefore, as the effect member and the shielding member are moved relative to each other, at least a part of the effect member that can be visually recognized in front view can be changed. It is possible to clearly grasp the change in the visible part of the image, and it is possible to easily distinguish the change in the appearance of the shielded region as compared with the change mode in which the effect member changes the posture and the position.

  For example, if the effect member is planar in the front view as in the case where the effect member is a rotating body having a rotation axis in the front-rear direction, the pattern or display of the effect member visible in the front view is a phase. If there is no difference, there is one type. On the other hand, by arranging and fixing the shielding member on the front side of the effect member, the visually recognizable part of the effect member can be changed by moving the effect member, so that multiple types of patterns and displays can be made. It can be visually recognized with a production member. In this case, it is conceivable that a plurality of types of patterns and displays are formed apart from each other on the effect member so that different patterns and displays can be visually recognized each time the effect member moves.

  Similarly, for example, when the effect member is a rotator having a rotation axis on a plane orthogonal to the front-rear direction, and the pattern or display is formed on the outer periphery of the rotator, the effect member is always half the circumference in front view. Therefore, in consideration of giving a sense of unity to the pattern and display in units of half a circle, the degree of freedom in forming a plurality of types of display on the effect member is low. On the other hand, by arranging and fixing the shielding member on the front side of the production member, the visible portion of the production member can be restricted, and the unit that gives a sense of unity to the pattern and display is restricted. The degree of freedom in forming the type of display can be improved.

  In addition, as a shielding member, the thing of the comb shape or ladder shape which overlaps with a movement locus | trajectory intermittently, the plate-shaped thing etc. which have opening are illustrated.

  The gaming machine A0 includes an effect member that is disposed in the shielded area and is movable in conjunction with the movement of the moving member, and the appearance of the shielded area is improved by moving the effect member. A gaming machine C1 that is changed.

  Here, in a gaming machine such as a pachinko machine, a moving member formed to be movable between a first position and a second position, and a driving means for generating a driving force for moving the moving member, In the case where the moving member is disposed at the first position, the moving member is shielded by the moving member so that the moving member is not visible in front view, and the moving member is disposed at least at the second position. There is a gaming machine having a shielded area that is visible in a front view (see, for example, JP 2011-182984 A). However, in the conventional gaming machine described above, only a pattern or a display is provided in the shielded area, and the ability as an effect part to draw attention to the player is low, and the shielded area is effectively used as an effect part. It was hard to say.

  Therefore, the applicant of the present application is provided with an effect member that is arranged in the shielded area and movable in accordance with the movement of the moving member in addition to the above-described gaming machine, and the effect member is moved. Has developed a gaming machine in which the appearance of the shielded area is changed (not known at the time of filing this application). However, in this case, the effect member can be moved in response to the movement of the moving member, but it is difficult to move the effect member while the moving member is stopped.

  On the other hand, according to the gaming machine C1, in addition to the effect produced by the gaming machine A0, the moving member and the effect member can be moved in an unlinked manner. Therefore, for example, the moving member is moved so that the shielded area becomes invisible, the rendering member is moved in advance while the moving member is stopped at that position, and the appearance of the shielded area is changed in advance. By moving the moving member again, it is possible to make the appearance different from that before the moving member makes the shielded region invisible visible in the shielded region, or to make the shielded region visible. Only the effect member can be moved independently while the moving member is stopped.

  Here, the movement mode of the moving member or the effect member is not particularly limited. For example, the moving member or the effect member may be rotatably supported and may be rotated or swinged. For example, the moving member or the effect member may be moved in parallel.

  The gaming machine C1 includes switching means capable of switching between transmitting the driving force of the driving means to the moving member or transmitting to the effect member, and the effect member is moved by the driving force of the drive means. A gaming machine C2 that is characterized by being played.

  According to the gaming machine C2, in addition to the effect produced by the gaming machine C1, the driving force for moving the effect member and the driving force for moving the moving member are the same by switching the transmission of the driving force of the driving means by the switching means. Since it can generate | occur | produce by a drive means, the arrangement | positioning number of a drive means can be suppressed and component cost can be reduced.

  In addition, as a switching means, a one-way clutch gear or a ratchet mechanism etc. are illustrated, for example.

  The gaming machine C2 includes an effect assisting member that is disposed in the shielded area and moves by approaching the moving member, and the effect assisting member moves while the moving member moves, A gaming machine C3, wherein the appearance of the shielded area is changed.

  Here, in the configuration of the gaming machine C2 that switches between transmitting the driving force of the driving means to the moving member or transmitting to the effect member, the effect member cannot be moved while moving the move member. It is difficult to change the appearance of the shielded area while moving.

  On the other hand, in the gaming machine C3, in addition to the effect produced by the gaming machine C2, an effect assisting member that moves by approaching the moving member is provided, so that the effect can be achieved by moving the moving member closer to the effect assisting member. As a result, the appearance of the shielded area can be changed.

  In addition, as a case where a moving member moves by approaching an effect auxiliary member, when the magnetic force works between the moving member and the effect auxiliary member, or when the moving member abuts the effect auxiliary member, the pushing force is increased. Examples include working cases.

  In the gaming machine C2 or C3, the switching unit generates the driving force of the driving unit depending on whether the driving force of the driving unit is generated in one direction or in another direction opposite to the one direction. The gaming machine C4 is a mechanical mechanism having a characteristic of switching between transmission to the moving member and transmission to the effect member.

  According to the gaming machine C4, in addition to the effects produced by the gaming machine C2 or C3, the switching means depends on whether the driving force of the driving means is generated in one direction or in another direction opposite to the one direction. Since the mechanical mechanism has switching characteristics, the control cost can be reduced as compared with the case where an electrical mechanism such as an electromagnet that requires electrical control is employed as the switching means.

  In the gaming machine C4, the driving means includes a rotating body that rotates about a first axis, and a pin member that protrudes from the rotating body and is eccentrically positioned on the first axis, and the moving member is the A guide portion for guiding the pin member is provided, and the movable member reciprocates once between the first position and the second position by rotating around the second axis and rotating the rotating body once. A gaming machine C5 characterized by this.

  Here, in the configuration of the gaming machine C4 that switches depending on whether the driving force of the driving means is generated in one direction or in another direction opposite to the one direction, the driving force generated from the driving means to the moving member is one. Limited to direction. Therefore, when the moving member is reciprocated, the direction of the driving force cannot be reversed on the forward path and the return path. For this reason, in consideration of restoring the moving member to the initial position, the moving member is easily limited to one that performs periodic rotational movement, and as a result, the design freedom of the moving member is reduced.

  On the other hand, according to the gaming machine C5, in addition to the effect produced by the gaming machine C4, the moving member moves when the rotating body rotates once in one direction because the driving force of the driving means is generated only in one direction. Since the member is restored to the initial position by one reciprocation between the first position and the second position, it is possible to adopt not only one in which the moving member performs periodic rotational movement but also one in which the member reciprocates. Therefore, the design freedom of the moving member can be improved.

  In any of the gaming machines C1 to C5, when the production member is viewed from the front, the movement locus of the production member is arranged to overlap at least partly, and arranged on the front side of the production member, A gaming machine C6 comprising a shielding member that changes a portion that is visible at least part of the effect member by moving relative to the effect member.

  According to the gaming machine C6, in addition to the effects produced by any of the gaming machines C1 to C5, at least a part of the effect member is moved on the trajectory of the effect member and is provided on the front side of the effect member. Since the shielding member is provided, when the shielding member and the effect member move relative to each other, a portion that overlaps the shielding member of the effect member becomes invisible, and a portion that does not overlap the shielding member of the effect member becomes visible. Therefore, as the effect member and the shielding member are moved relative to each other, at least a part of the effect member that can be visually recognized in front view can be changed. It is possible to clearly grasp the change in the visible part of the image, and it is possible to easily distinguish the change in the appearance of the shielded region as compared with the change mode in which the effect member changes the posture and the position.

  For example, if the effect member is planar in the front view as in the case where the effect member is a rotating body having a rotation axis in the front-rear direction, the pattern or display of the effect member visible in the front view is a phase. If there is no difference, there is one type. On the other hand, by arranging and fixing the shielding member on the front side of the effect member, the visually recognizable part of the effect member can be changed by moving the effect member, so that multiple types of patterns and displays can be made. It can be visually recognized with a production member. In this case, it is conceivable that a plurality of types of patterns and displays are formed apart from each other on the effect member so that different patterns and displays can be visually recognized each time the effect member moves.

  Similarly, for example, when the effect member is a rotator having a rotation axis on a plane orthogonal to the front-rear direction, and the pattern or display is formed on the outer periphery of the rotator, the effect member is always half the circumference in front view. Therefore, in consideration of giving a sense of unity to the pattern and display in units of half a circle, the degree of freedom in forming a plurality of types of display on the effect member is low. On the other hand, by arranging and fixing the shielding member on the front side of the production member, the visible portion of the production member can be restricted, and the unit that gives a sense of unity to the pattern and display is restricted. The degree of freedom in forming the type of display can be improved.

  In addition, as a shielding member, the thing of the comb shape or ladder shape which overlaps with a movement locus | trajectory intermittently, the plate-shaped thing etc. which have opening are illustrated.

  A first moving member formed to be movable between a first position and a second position; first driving means for generating a driving force for moving the first moving member; and A second moving member that is movably disposed on the rear surface side and at least a part of which is visible in front view regardless of the position of the first moving member, and for moving the second moving member A second driving means for generating a driving force, and when the first moving member is disposed at the first position, the region becomes invisible in front view by being shielded by the first moving member. And when the first moving member is disposed at least in the second position, the region is visible in a front view, and when the first moving member is disposed at least in the second position. Before in the process of moving A first shielded area that is an area in which at least a part of the second moving member can be viewed in front view is provided, and an appearance of at least a part of the first shielded area is changed by the movement of the second moving member. A gaming machine D1 that is characterized by being played.

  Here, in a gaming machine such as a pachinko machine, a moving member formed to be movable between a first position and a second position, and a driving means for generating a driving force for moving the moving member, In the case where the moving member is disposed at the first position, the moving member is shielded by the moving member so that the moving member is not visible in front view, and the moving member is disposed at least at the second position. There is a gaming machine having a shielded area that is visible in a front view (see, for example, JP 2011-182984 A). However, in the conventional gaming machine described above, only a pattern or a display is provided in the shielded area, and the ability as an effect part to draw attention to the player is low, and the shielded area is effectively used as an effect part. It was hard to say.

  Therefore, the applicant of the present application is provided with an effect member that is arranged in the shielded area and movable in accordance with the movement of the moving member in addition to the above-described gaming machine, and the effect member is moved. Has developed a gaming machine in which the appearance of the shielded area is changed (not known at the time of filing this application). However, in this case, the effect member is disposed only for the purpose of changing the appearance of the shielded area, and therefore, the effect member cannot be visually recognized while the moving member is disposed at the first position. The form in which the member is noticed is limited by the arrangement of the moving member.

  On the other hand, according to the gaming machine D1, at least a part of the second moving member that is movably disposed on the rear surface side of the first moving member is in front view regardless of the position of the first moving member. Since it is visible, when the first moving member is arranged at the first position, the second moving member can be visually recognized as a member that is moved independently, and the first moving member is arranged at least at the second position. In this case, the second moving member is moved independently and can be visually recognized as a member that changes the appearance of the first shielded area. Therefore, the second moving member can have the attention force regardless of the arrangement of the first moving member.

  When the first moving member is disposed at least in the second position, the first shielded region is visible in front view, and at least a part of the second moving member disposed on the rear surface side of the first moving member is Since the second moving member moves so as to pass through the first shielded region in front view, at least a part of the moving second moving member can be visually recognized in the first shielded region. Thus, the appearance of the first shielded area can be changed. As a result, the ability of the first shielded area as the effect part can be improved, and the first shielded area can be effectively used as the effect part.

  Here, at least a part of the second moving member is visible in front view regardless of the arrangement of the first moving member, and the second moving member is not a member that is visible only in the first shielded region. Therefore, since the second moving member is moved with a specific production intention regardless of the first moving member, it is natural that the second driving means unique to the second moving member is provided. The requirement for the second driving member for the second moving member does not relate to whether or not the second moving member passes through the first shielded region in front view.

  Here, the feature of the present invention resides in that the second moving member is disposed so that the moving second moving member passes through the first shielded region in front view. That is, the change of the first shielded area is achieved by the movement of the second moving member, and at the same time, the necessary driving force diverts the driving force of the second driving means. Therefore, it is possible to eliminate the need for additional driving means for changing the appearance of the first shielded area.

  The mode of movement of the first moving member or the second moving member is not particularly limited. For example, the first moving member or the second moving member is rotatably supported by the first moving member or the second moving member. For example, the moving member may be rotated or rocked. For example, the first moving member or the second moving member may be moved in parallel.

  In the gaming machine D1, the second moving member is a fourth position different from the third position, and a third position where at least a part of the first shielded region and at least a part of the second moving member overlap in front view. When the second moving member is disposed at the third position, the second moving member is shielded by the second moving member and is not visible in the front view. And the second moving member is an area that is visible in a front view when the second moving member is disposed at least in the fourth position and the first moving member is disposed at least in the second position. A gaming machine D2 comprising a shielding area, wherein the first shielded area and the second shielded area overlap at least partially when viewed from the front.

  According to the gaming machine D2, in addition to the effects produced by the gaming machine D1, the first shielded area and the second shielded area can be visually recognized with at least partly overlapping. When the moving member is arranged at the third position, the second moving member can be visually recognized through the first shielded area and the second shielded area cannot be visually recognized, and the second moving member is at least fourth. It can change by the case where it can visually recognize a 2nd to-be-shielded area | region through a 1st to-be-shielded area | region by arrange | positioning in a position.

  In the gaming machine D2, the first moving area is disposed on the front side of the second moving member and moves in correspondence with the second moving member, and the second moving member is moved to the third position. A gaming machine D3 comprising an effect assisting member formed so as to at least partially overlap the second moving member when viewed from the front.

  Here, since the external appearance of the second moving member can be visually recognized if the second moving member is arranged at the fourth position, the external appearance when the second moving member is visually recognized through the first shielded region can be predicted. However, it is not surprising, and it cannot be said that the production effect is sufficient.

  On the other hand, according to the gaming machine D3, in addition to the effect produced by the gaming machine D2, when the second moving member is arranged at the third position, the second moving member and the production assisting member are visually recognized in an overlapping manner. The appearance when the second moving member is visually recognized through one shielded area can be different from the appearance that can be expected from only the second moving member.

  In addition, when the second moving member and the production assisting member move relative to each other, the portion of the second moving member on which the production assistance member overlaps changes as the second moving member moves. The appearance when the second moving member is visually recognized through the first shielded area can be changed as the second moving member moves, and the appearance of the first shielded area can be predicted only from the second moving member. The effect of making it different from can be improved.

  Here, the second moving member and the production auxiliary member move correspondingly means that the second moving member and the production auxiliary member are each made of at least a part of a magnetic body, When the magnetic force is generated between the performance assisting member and the movement of the second moving member and the performance assisting member is associated, or when the performance assisting member comes into contact with the second moving member, the second moving member moves. This means that the production assisting member is pushed or pulled.

  In the gaming machine D3, at least a part of the second moving member and the effect assisting member is made of a magnetic material, and magnetic force is generated when the second moving member and the effect assisting member are close to each other. The game machine D4, wherein the effect member moves.

  According to the gaming machine D4, in addition to the effect produced by the gaming machine D3, the production assistance member is moved by the magnetic force generated between the second moving member and the production assistance member, so that the second movement member changes to the production assistance member. On the other hand, a mechanical mechanism that directly transmits force can be eliminated. Further, due to the magnetic properties, when the interval between the performance assisting member and the moving member is smaller than a predetermined distance, a large force can be suddenly generated between the performance assisting member and the moving member. In this case, since the effect assisting member can have an acceleration that does not correspond to the moving speed of the second moving member, the effect assisting member can be moved unexpectedly, and the effect of the effect can be improved.

  In the gaming machine D3, the second moving member and the performance assisting member are disposed so as to be able to contact each other during the movement of the second moving member, and the second moving member and the performance assisting member are in contact with each other. Thus, the production assisting member D5 is moved.

  According to the gaming machine D5, in addition to the effects produced by the gaming machine D3, the performance assisting member abuts on the second moving member and moves by being pushed by the second moving member. can do.

  That is, for example, when the production assistance member is moved by a magnetic force, the necessary magnetic force increases if the production assistance member has a large mass or shape. Here, in order to increase the magnetic force, it is necessary to improve the characteristics of the magnet. However, if the characteristics of the magnet are improved, the magnet becomes expensive and the component cost increases. Therefore, since the parts cost is required to increase the size of the production assistance member, it is difficult to enlarge the production member, and the appearance of the second moving member is greatly changed by increasing the overlapping portion of the production assistance member and the second movement member. It ’s difficult.

  On the other hand, according to the gaming machine D5, the effect assisting member moves due to the pushing force generated by direct or indirect contact with the second moving member, so that the second drive means is driven to move the effect assisting member. Power can be utilized and a larger production assistance member can be employed. Therefore, the external appearance of the second moving member and the external appearance when the effect assisting member and the second moving member overlap can be greatly changed.

  In particular, for example, when the second moving member moves in the gravitational direction, the second moving member moves in the gravitational direction because almost no driving force of the second driving means is required to move the second moving member. In this case, the capacity of the driving means can be maintained even when the driving force of the second driving means is used for the effect assisting member.
