Pachinko balls P are clogged with the mouth defining member 52, or a plurality of pachinko balls P are guided to the second start winning port 38 at a time, thereby clogging the balls at the second starting winning port 38. It can be prevented from occurring. Further, the spacing between the rear surface of the connecting portion 58 that connects the pair of guide portions 57 and 57 and the front surface of the attachment portion 41 is set to a dimension that allows the pachinko ball P to pass through. The pachinko ball P guided by the guide portions 57 and 57 in the closed state of the opening / closing member 59 (FIGS. 3 and 7) is configured to pass between the guide portions 57 and 57.

〔実施例の作用〕
次に、実施例に係るパチンコ機10の作用について説明する。
(Effects of Example)
Next, the operation of the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment will be described.
前記前枠13の前面側に設けられた前記操作ハンドル16の操作レバー16aを遊技者が回転操作すると、前記打球発射装置から発射されたパチンコ球Pが前記遊技領域23内に打ち出される。遊技状態が通常状態の場合は、前記操作レバー16aの回動量を調節して「左打ち」を行うことで、遊技領域23に打ち出されたパチンコ球Pは前記第1球流下領域23aを流下する。そして、第1球流下領域23aを流下するパチンコ球Pが、前記始動入賞装置29の第1始動入賞口37に入賞すると、前記第1始動入賞検出センサによる球検出を契機として、前記制御手段が各種情報(各種乱数情報)を取得して、この取得した入賞情報に基づいて大当り判定が行われる。   When the player rotates the operation lever 16 a of the operation handle 16 provided on the front side of the front frame 13, the pachinko ball P launched from the hitting ball launching device is launched into the game area 23. When the gaming state is a normal state, the left-handed “left strike” is performed by adjusting the amount of rotation of the operation lever 16a, so that the pachinko ball P launched into the gaming area 23 flows down the first ball falling area 23a. . When the pachinko ball P flowing down the first ball flow down area 23a wins the first start winning port 37 of the start winning device 29, the control means is triggered by the ball detection by the first start winning detection sensor. Various information (various random number information) is acquired, and the jackpot determination is performed based on the acquired winning information.
また、前記第1始動入賞検出センサによる球検出を契機と前記表示装置17で図柄変動演出が開始され、前記大当り判定が当りの判定結果の場合は、表示装置17の表示部17aに当り表示が表示されて大当り遊技が開始される。この大当り遊技では、前記特別入賞装置30の特別用開閉部材30bが開放作動されて特別入賞口30aへのパチンコ球Pの入賞が許容される。従って、遊技者が前記操作レバー16aの回転量を変更して「右打ち」を行うことで、遊技領域23に打ち出されたパチンコ球Pは前記第2球流下領域23bを流下し、開放した特別入賞口30aにパチンコ球Pが入賞することで多くの賞球を獲得することが可能となる。   Further, when the ball detection by the first start winning detection sensor is triggered, the display device 17 starts a symbol variation effect, and when the big hit determination is a win determination result, the display unit 17a of the display device 17 displays a win display. It is displayed and the big hit game is started. In this jackpot game, the special opening / closing member 30b of the special winning device 30 is opened to allow the pachinko ball P to be awarded to the special winning opening 30a. Therefore, when the player changes the amount of rotation of the operation lever 16a and performs “right-handed”, the pachinko ball P launched into the game area 23 flows down the second ball flow-down area 23b and is opened. A lot of prize balls can be acquired by winning the pachinko ball P in the prize opening 30a.
前記制御手段が、大当り遊技の終了後に確変状態や変短状態を付与することを決定した場合は、「右打ち」を行うことで遊技者にとって有利な遊技が行われる。従って、確変状態や変短状態が付与された状態では、遊技者は大当り遊技が付与されている状態(大当り状態)の場合と同様に、前記操作レバー16aの回転量を調節して「右打ち」を行う。そして、第2球流下領域23bを流下するパチンコ球Pの前記ゲート部31の通過(具体的にはゲートセンサによる球検出)を契機として制御手段で実行される普図当り判定の結果が当りの場合に、前記作動手段68の始動入賞ソレノイド69が制御手段の制御下に作動(励磁)されて始動用開閉部材59が開放作動し、前記第2始動入賞口38へのパチンコ球Pの入賞が許容される。   When the control means decides to give a probable change state or a short change state after the big hit game, the game that is advantageous to the player is performed by “right-handed”. Therefore, in the state where the probability variation state or the variation state is given, the player adjusts the amount of rotation of the operation lever 16a in the same way as in the case where the big hit game is given (big hit state), "I do. Then, the result of the normal hit determination executed by the control means triggered by the passage of the pachinko sphere P flowing down the second sphere falling area 23b through the gate portion 31 (specifically, the sphere detection by the gate sensor) is the hit. In this case, the start winning solenoid 69 of the actuating means 68 is actuated (excited) under the control of the control means, the start opening / closing member 59 is opened, and the pachinko ball P is awarded to the second start winning opening 38. Permissible.
実施例に係るパチンコ機10の始動入賞装置29では、前記第2発光基板76に実装した第2LED76aを発光させると、その光が前記第2球通路62においてパチンコ球Pを案内する第1および第2案内リブ73,74に照射されて該案内リブ73,74が明輝し、第2球通路62内が照明される。すなわち、前記始動用開閉部材59が開放した状態では、案内リブ73,74が明輝することで照明された第2球通路62内におけるパチンコ球Pの流下状況の視認性を高めて演出効果を向上することができる。また、第1案内リブ73および第2案内リブ74は、図9,図10に示す如く、第2球通路62の左右両側に位置しているので、両案内リブ73,74による照明効果を高めると共に、明輝(発光)する一対の案内リブ73,74の間をパチンコ球Pが流下する際の発光演出によって興趣を向上できる。   In the start winning device 29 of the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, when the second LED 76 a mounted on the second light emitting substrate 76 is caused to emit light, the light guides the pachinko ball P in the second ball passage 62. 2 The guide ribs 73 and 74 are irradiated to illuminate the guide ribs 73 and 74, and the inside of the second spherical passage 62 is illuminated. That is, in the state in which the start opening / closing member 59 is opened, the visibility of the flow-down state of the pachinko ball P in the second ball passage 62 illuminated by the brightening of the guide ribs 73 and 74 is improved and the effect of the production is improved. can do. Moreover, since the 1st guide rib 73 and the 2nd guide rib 74 are located in the right-and-left both sides of the 2nd spherical channel | path 62, as shown to FIG. 9, FIG. 10, the illumination effect by both the guide ribs 73 and 74 is heightened. At the same time, it is possible to improve the interest by the light emitting effect when the pachinko ball P flows down between the pair of guide ribs 73 and 74 that shine (emits light).
前記第2LED76aの光は、前記上リブ66にも照射されて、該上リブ66が明輝することによっても第2球通路62内が照明される。この上リブ66は、前記始動用開閉部材59の開放状態では、前記第2始動入賞口38の幅方向中央の奥側に位置し、前記第1案内リブ73と第2案内リブ74との間を流下するパチンコ球Pで一部が隠れる状態となる。そして、第2球通路62を流下して前記落下口65aからパチンコ球Pが落下すると、上リブ66におけるパチンコ球Pで隠れていた部分が露出する。すなわち、第2始動入賞口38に入賞したパチンコ球Pの落下前と落下後とで明輝している上リブ66の見え方が変わり、興趣を向上し得る。   The light from the second LED 76a is also applied to the upper rib 66, and the interior of the second spherical passage 62 is illuminated by the brightness of the upper rib 66. The upper rib 66 is located on the far side in the center in the width direction of the second start winning opening 38 in the open state of the start opening / closing member 59 and is located between the first guide rib 73 and the second guide rib 74. A part of the pachinko ball P flowing down is hidden. When the pachinko ball P flows down the second ball passage 62 and falls from the dropping port 65a, the portion hidden by the pachinko ball P in the upper rib 66 is exposed. That is, the appearance of the bright upper rib 66 is changed before and after the fall of the pachinko ball P won in the second start winning opening 38, and the interest can be improved.
また、前記始動用開閉部材59は光透過性であるので、該始動用開閉部材59が閉成状態であっても、前記各リブ66,73,74が明輝して第2球通路62内が照明されていれば、始動用開閉部材59を介して第2球通路62内の発光演出を認識することができ、興趣を向上し得る。しかも、前記案内リブ73,74の前端は始動用開閉部材59の裏面に対向しているので、第2LED76aが発光した際には後端から入射して透明な案内リブ73,74で導びかれて前端から射出される光によって始動用開閉部材59を明輝させることができ、始動入賞装置29の発光演出による興趣をより向上できる。すなわち、第2球通路62を流下するパチンコ球Pを案内する案内リブ73,74を、光を導びく導光部材として機能させているので、閉成状態の始動用開閉部材59と第2LED76aとの離間距離が長くても強い光で始動用開閉部材59を照明することができ、発光演出効果を向上し得る。また、第1案内リブ73における各第1突条73bの内面、延出壁73aにおける両第1突条73b,73bの間に臨む内面および両第1突条73b,73bの対向面を夫々傾斜させているので、第2LED76aから後端に入射された光を各傾斜面で内部反射させて第1案内リブ73の前端部に導き、前端部から強い光を射出することができる。また、第2案内リブ74における各第2突条74aの内面および両第2突条74a,74aの対向面を夫々傾斜させているので、第2LED76aから後端に入射された光を各傾斜面で内部反射させて第2案内リブ74の前端部に導き、前端部から強い光を射出することができる。すなわち、始動用開閉部材59から後側に離れて位置する第2LED76a,76aからの光を両案内リブ73,74で集光して射出できるので、始動用開閉部材59をより強い光で照明することができる。更に、各案内リブ73,74の前端部に設けられた傾斜面73c,74bからは、第2始動入賞口38の幅方向の中央に向けて光が射出されるので始動用開閉部材59の幅方向の中央部が明輝してより目立たせることができる。   Further, since the start opening / closing member 59 is light transmissive, the ribs 66, 73, 74 are bright and the interior of the second spherical passage 62 is maintained even when the start opening / closing member 59 is closed. If it is illuminated, the light emission effect in the second ball passage 62 can be recognized via the start opening / closing member 59, and the interest can be improved. Moreover, since the front ends of the guide ribs 73 and 74 are opposed to the back surface of the start opening / closing member 59, when the second LED 76a emits light, it enters from the rear end and is guided by the transparent guide ribs 73 and 74. Thus, the start opening / closing member 59 can be brightened by the light emitted from the front end, and the interest by the light emission effect of the start winning device 29 can be further improved. That is, since the guide ribs 73 and 74 for guiding the pachinko balls P flowing down the second ball passage 62 function as light guide members for guiding light, the start opening / closing member 59 and the second LED 76a in the closed state Even if the separation distance is long, the start opening / closing member 59 can be illuminated with strong light, and the light emission effect can be improved. Moreover, the inner surface of each 1st protrusion 73b in the 1st guide rib 73, the inner surface which faces between both 1st protrusion 73b, 73b in the extension wall 73a, and the opposing surface of both 1st protrusion 73b, 73b are each inclined. Therefore, the light incident on the rear end from the second LED 76a is internally reflected by each inclined surface and guided to the front end portion of the first guide rib 73, and strong light can be emitted from the front end portion. Moreover, since the inner surface of each 2nd protrusion 74a and the opposing surface of both 2nd protrusions 74a and 74a in the 2nd guide rib 74 are each inclined, the light incident on the rear end from 2nd LED76a is each inclined surface. Thus, the light is internally reflected and guided to the front end portion of the second guide rib 74, and strong light can be emitted from the front end portion. That is, since the light from the second LEDs 76a and 76a located rearward from the start opening / closing member 59 can be condensed and emitted by both guide ribs 73 and 74, the start opening / closing member 59 is illuminated with stronger light. be able to. Furthermore, light is emitted from the inclined surfaces 73c and 74b provided at the front end portions of the guide ribs 73 and 74 toward the center in the width direction of the second start winning opening 38, so that the width of the start opening / closing member 59 is increased. The central part of the direction is brighter and more prominent.
ここで、実施例の始動入賞装置29では、第1案内リブ73に対して第2LED76aは、図9に示す如く、該第1案内リブ73における延出壁73aおよび各第1突条73bの後端に対向すると共に、延出壁73aおよび両第1突条73b,73bで囲われた空間部に対向するように配置されており、該第2LED76aから光が照射される部位が異なることで第1案内リブ73の明輝態様が異なって興趣を向上し得る。同様に、第2案内リブ74に対して第2LED76aは、該第2案内リブ74における各第2突条74aの後端に対向すると共に、両第2突条74a,74aおよび下側壁部51bで囲われた空間部に対向するように配置されており、該第2LED76aから光が照射される部位が異なることで第2案内リブ74の明輝態様が異なって興趣を向上し得る。また、第1案内リブ73における延出壁73aの両第1突条73b,73bの間に臨む内面や第2案内リブ74の両第2突条74a,74aの間に臨む下側壁部51bの内面は、各第2LED76aから照射された光によって各リブ73,74の延在方向(第2球通路62の延在方向)に沿うように照らされるので第2球通路62の全体を照明できる。   Here, in the start winning device 29 according to the embodiment, the second LED 76a is arranged on the first guide rib 73 after the extending wall 73a and the first protrusion 73b on the first guide rib 73 as shown in FIG. It is arranged so as to face the end and to face the space surrounded by the extending wall 73a and both first protrusions 73b and 73b, and the portion irradiated with light from the second LED 76a is different. The brightness of the 1 guide rib 73 can be different and the interest can be improved. Similarly, the second LED 76a is opposed to the rear end of each second ridge 74a in the second guide rib 74, and the second ridges 74a, 74a and the lower side wall 51b are opposed to the second guide rib 74. It arrange | positions so that it may oppose the enclosed space part, and the brightness | luminance aspect of the 2nd guide rib 74 differs because the site | part irradiated with light from this 2nd LED76a differs, and an interest can be improved. Further, the inner surface of the first guide rib 73 that faces between the first protrusions 73b and 73b of the extending wall 73a and the lower side wall 51b that faces between the second protrusions 74a and 74a of the second guide rib 74 are also shown. The inner surface is illuminated by the light emitted from each of the second LEDs 76a so as to extend along the extending direction of the ribs 73 and 74 (the extending direction of the second spherical passage 62), so that the entire second spherical passage 62 can be illuminated.
実施例の始動入賞装置29では、前記第2球通路62を流下するパチンコ球Pを案内する第1案内リブ73を利用して、前記始動用開閉部材59を開閉作動させる作動手段68における連繋部72aと始動用開閉部材59の係合部61aとの係合部位を収容する収容部75と第2球通路62とを区画するよう構成したので、第2球通路62を流下するパチンコ球Pが係合部位に接触するのを防止するために別部材を設ける場合に比較して構成を簡略化し得る。すなわち、第1案内リブ73によってパチンコ球Pのスムーズな流下を図って第2球通路62内での球詰りを抑制し得るもとで、該第1案内リブ73によって連繋部72aと係合部61aとの係合部位にパチンコ球Pが接触するのを防止し得る。また、収容部75と第2球通路62とを区画する壁を別途設ける場合に比較して省スぺース化を図り、スペース効率を向上することができる。   In the start winning device 29 of the embodiment, the connecting portion in the operating means 68 that opens and closes the start opening / closing member 59 using the first guide rib 73 that guides the pachinko ball P flowing down the second ball passage 62. 72a and the second ball passage 62 are configured so as to partition the housing portion 75 that houses the engagement portion between the engagement portion 61a of the start opening / closing member 59 and the pachinko ball P flowing down the second ball passage 62. The configuration can be simplified as compared with the case where another member is provided to prevent contact with the engaging portion. That is, the first guide rib 73 allows the pachinko ball P to flow smoothly and suppresses the clogging of the balls in the second ball passage 62. The first guide rib 73 allows the connecting portion 72a and the engaging portion to be blocked. The pachinko sphere P can be prevented from coming into contact with the engaging portion with 61a. In addition, space can be saved and space efficiency can be improved as compared with a case where a wall for partitioning the accommodating portion 75 and the second spherical passage 62 is separately provided.
また、前記第1案内リブ73は、図10に示す如く、前記第2球通路62の後面を画成する後壁47から前側に延在するように形成されているので、該第2球通路62の後端部に形成されている排出路65(落下口65a)までパチンコ球Pをスムーズに案内して排出することができ、球詰りをより抑制し得る。   Further, as shown in FIG. 10, the first guide rib 73 is formed so as to extend from the rear wall 47 defining the rear surface of the second ball passage 62 to the front side. The pachinko ball P can be smoothly guided and discharged to the discharge path 65 (falling port 65a) formed at the rear end portion of 62, and the clogging of the ball can be further suppressed.
実施例の始動入賞装置29では、前記始動用開閉部材59を開閉作動させる作動手段68における連繋部72aと始動用開閉部材59の係合部61aとの係合部位を収容する収容部75を本体36の左側に偏って設けると共に、作動手段68の駆動手段である始動入賞ソレノイド69を右側に偏って設けている。すなわち、収容部75と始動入賞ソレノイド69とを左右に振り分けているので、本体36に対してスペース効率良く収容部75と始動入賞ソレノイド69とを設けることができる。   In the start winning device 29 according to the embodiment, the main body includes a housing portion 75 that houses an engaging portion between the connecting portion 72a and the engaging portion 61a of the starting opening / closing member 59 in the operating means 68 for opening / closing the starting opening / closing member 59. 36, and a start winning solenoid 69 that is a driving means of the operating means 68 is provided to be biased to the right side. That is, since the accommodating portion 75 and the start winning solenoid 69 are distributed to the left and right, the accommodating portion 75 and the starting winning solenoid 69 can be provided with respect to the main body 36 in a space efficient manner.
前記始動用開閉部材59の開放状態において、該始動用開閉部材59を開閉作動させる作動手段68と係合するための作動片61を第2始動入賞口38における開口縁の内側に位置させると共に、該作動片61に、パチンコ球Pを第2球通路62の後側(奥側)に誘導する傾斜面61bを形成したので、作動片61を利用してパチンコ球Pを第2球通路62の後側に向けてスムーズに誘導することができ、第2球通路62内での球詰りの発生を抑制し得る。また、始動用開閉部材59の開放状態において、作動片61と前記第1案内リブ73とを左右方向に部分的に重なる関係とし、作動片61の傾斜面61bの後側に第1案内リブ73の傾斜面73cを位置させたことで、第2始動入賞口38に入賞したパチンコ球Pを両傾斜面61b,73cによって第2球通路62の後側に向けてよりスムーズに誘導することができる。更に、図10に示す如く、前記第1案内リブ73の傾斜面73cに対して第2案内リブ74の傾斜面74bを第2球通路62の後側(奥側)に離間して位置させると共に、第1案内リブ73の傾斜面73cで後側に誘導されるパチンコ球Pが第2案内リブ74の傾斜面74bに当接可能に構成している。すなわち、左右に対向する両案内リブ73,74の傾斜面73c,74bによってパチンコ球Pをスムーズに第2球通路62の後側に誘導することができ、第2球通路62内での球詰りをより好適に抑制し得る。   In the open state of the start opening / closing member 59, the operating piece 61 for engaging with the operating means 68 for opening / closing the start opening / closing member 59 is positioned inside the opening edge of the second start winning opening 38, and Since the operating piece 61 is formed with an inclined surface 61b for guiding the pachinko sphere P to the rear side (back side) of the second sphere passage 62, the pachinko sphere P is moved into the second sphere passage 62 using the operating piece 61. It can be smoothly guided toward the rear side, and the occurrence of clogging in the second ball passage 62 can be suppressed. In the open state of the start opening / closing member 59, the operating piece 61 and the first guide rib 73 are partially overlapped in the left-right direction, and the first guide rib 73 is provided on the rear side of the inclined surface 61b of the operating piece 61. By positioning the inclined surface 73c, the pachinko ball P that has won the second start winning port 38 can be more smoothly guided toward the rear side of the second ball passage 62 by the both inclined surfaces 61b and 73c. . Further, as shown in FIG. 10, the inclined surface 74 b of the second guide rib 74 is positioned away from the inclined surface 73 c of the first guide rib 73 on the rear side (back side) of the second ball passage 62. The pachinko ball P guided rearward by the inclined surface 73 c of the first guide rib 73 is configured to be able to contact the inclined surface 74 b of the second guide rib 74. That is, the pachinko balls P can be smoothly guided to the rear side of the second ball passage 62 by the inclined surfaces 73c and 74b of the both guide ribs 73 and 74 facing left and right, and the balls are blocked in the second ball passage 62. Can be more suitably suppressed.
ここで、実施例の始動入賞装置29では、前記第2始動入賞口38の左右方向の開口寸法をパチンコ球Pの直径の2倍以上に設定し、前記始動用開閉部材59の開放状態において遊技者に第2始動入賞口38の間口を大きく見せ得るよう構成されている。但し、前述したように始動用開閉部材59の開放状態において第2始動入賞口38の開口左端縁側に前記作動片61が位置することで、2つのパチンコ球Pが左右に並んだ状態では第2始動入賞口38に入賞し得ないよう構成されている。すなわち、遊技者に多くのパチンコ球Pが一度に入賞可能であるように見せ掛けることで興趣を向上しつつ、複数のパチンコ球Pが一度に入賞することで球詰りが発生するのを防止し得るようになっている。   Here, in the start winning device 29 of the embodiment, the opening dimension in the left-right direction of the second start winning opening 38 is set to be twice or more the diameter of the pachinko ball P, and the game is performed in the open state of the start opening / closing member 59. It is configured so that the front opening of the second start winning opening 38 can be shown to a person. However, as described above, the operating piece 61 is positioned on the left end edge side of the second start winning opening 38 in the open state of the start opening / closing member 59, so that the second pachinko ball P is aligned in the left and right directions. The start winning opening 38 is configured not to win a prize. In other words, while making the player seem to be able to win many pachinko balls P at a time, improving the interest, while preventing a plurality of pachinko balls P from winning at the same time to prevent clogging of balls. To get.
また、前記「左打ち」で第1球流下領域23aを流下するパチンコ球Pに比較して「右打ち」で第2球流下領域23bを流下するパチンコ球Pの勢いは強く、始動入賞装置29に対して右側(第2球流下領域23b)から流れてくるパチンコ球Pが第2始動入賞口38に入賞する際の勢いは強い。そのため、第2始動入賞口38の左開口縁に当接したパチンコ球Pの移動方向が乱れて次に流れてくるパチンコ球Pと接触することで球詰りを生じ易い。しかるに、実施例の始動入賞装置29では、始動用開閉部材59の開放状態において第2始動入賞口38の左開口縁に作動片61の傾斜面61bを位置させているので、第2球流下領域23bから流れてくるパチンコ球Pを作動片61の傾斜面61bによって第2球通路62の後側にスムーズに導びくことができ、次に流れてくるパチンコ球Pとに接触によって球詰りが発生するのを抑制することができる。   In addition, the pachinko sphere P flowing down the second sphere falling area 23b by “right-handed” is stronger than the pachinko sphere P flowing down the first sphere falling area 23a by the “left-handed”, and the start winning device 29 On the other hand, the momentum when the pachinko ball P flowing from the right side (second ball falling area 23b) wins the second start winning opening 38 is strong. For this reason, the movement direction of the pachinko ball P in contact with the left opening edge of the second start winning opening 38 is disturbed, and ball clogging easily occurs due to contact with the pachinko ball P that flows next. However, in the start winning device 29 of the embodiment, since the inclined surface 61b of the operating piece 61 is positioned at the left opening edge of the second start winning opening 38 in the opened state of the start opening / closing member 59, the second ball falling region The pachinko sphere P flowing from 23b can be smoothly guided to the rear side of the second ball passage 62 by the inclined surface 61b of the operating piece 61, and the clogging occurs due to contact with the next flowing pachinko sphere P. Can be suppressed.
ここで、前記第2球流下領域23bから勢いよく第2始動入賞口38に到来するパチンコ球Pが当る第2始動入賞口38の左開口縁側に、前記連繋部72aと係合部61aとの係合部位を収容する収容部75を画成している。この収容部75を画成する前記第1案内リブ73は、上下端部および前端部は何れも第2球通路62を画成する壁に接続されていないので、前記収容部75は第2球通路62側に大きく開放された状態となっている(図9参照)。従って、第2球流下領域23bから到来したパチンコ球Pが第2始動入賞口38の左開口縁側に当った際の衝撃音が大きく響くのを抑えることができる。   Here, on the left opening edge side of the second start winning port 38 where the pachinko ball P arriving at the second starting winning port 38 vigorously from the second ball flow down region 23b hits the connecting portion 72a and the engaging portion 61a. An accommodating portion 75 that accommodates the engaging portion is defined. Since the first guide rib 73 that defines the accommodating portion 75 is not connected to the wall that defines the second spherical passage 62 at the upper and lower end portions and the front end portion, the accommodating portion 75 has the second spherical portion. It is in a state of being largely open to the passage 62 side (see FIG. 9). Therefore, it is possible to suppress the impact sound when the pachinko ball P arriving from the second ball flow down area 23b hits the left opening edge side of the second start winning prize port 38 from being greatly echoed.
実施例の始動入賞装置29では、前記第1始動入賞口37を形成する入賞口画成部材52の内部に第1LED54aを設置して(図7,図8参照)、該第1LED54aの光により入賞口画成部材52を明輝させることで、遊技者の関心が高い第1始動入賞口37を目立つようにすることができ、興趣を向上し得る。また、第1LED54aが実装される第1発光基板54に接続する配線を、前記本体36の内部に画成した配線用空間55を引き回して該本体36の後側から外部に引き出すよう構成したので、該配線が第1始動入賞口37に入賞したパチンコ球Pが流下する前記第1球通路56や第2始動入賞口38に入賞したパチンコ球Pが流下する前記第2球通路62に突出してパチンコ球Pの流下を阻害することはない。   In the start winning device 29 according to the embodiment, the first LED 54a is installed inside the winning opening defining member 52 that forms the first starting winning opening 37 (see FIGS. 7 and 8), and the first LED 54a receives the light. By brightening the mouth defining member 52, it is possible to make the first start winning opening 37 of high interest of the player conspicuous and improve the interest. In addition, since the wiring connected to the first light emitting substrate 54 on which the first LED 54a is mounted is configured to be drawn out from the rear side of the main body 36 by drawing the wiring space 55 defined in the main body 36, The wiring protrudes into the first ball passage 56 where the pachinko ball P won in the first start winning port 37 flows down and the second ball passage 62 where the pachinko ball P won in the second start winning port 38 flows down. The flow of the sphere P is not hindered.
また、前記本体36の前部において前記第2始動入賞口38を挟む左右に位置する前記ガイド部57,57を、本体36の後側に配設した第3LED76bの光により明輝させることで、遊技者の関心が高い第2始動入賞口38を目立つようにすることができ、興趣を向上し得る。また、第3LED76bは、前記第2LED76aが実装される第2発光基板76に実装してあるので、第3LED76bのための専用の発光基板を別途設ける必要はなく、部品点数を低減し得ると共に構造を簡略化することができる。しかも、第3LED76bからの光を不透明な筒状部材78および光透過度が低い筒状部77によってガイド部57の後部まで導びくようにしているので(図11参照)、該ガイド部57を強い光で明輝させて発光演出効果を向上し得る。言い替えると、前記第2球通路62を後方から照明する第2LED76aが実装される第2発光基板76に第3LED76bを実装して部品の共通化を図ることで第3LED76bで照明するガイド部57との距離が離間しても、該第3LED76bの光を効率的にガイド部57まで導びいて効果的に明輝させることができる。また、第3LED76bの光を導びく不透明な筒状部材78を、前記前部材39および後部材40とは別体で構成したので、前部材39や後部材40における第3LED76bの光を導びく部分を他の部分とは異なる不透明とする必要はなく、部品の製造を容易化し得る。   In addition, the guide portions 57 and 57 positioned on the left and right sides of the second start winning opening 38 at the front portion of the main body 36 are brightened by the light of the third LED 76b disposed on the rear side of the main body 36, thereby It is possible to make the second start winning opening 38 of high interest of the person conspicuous and improve the interest. Further, since the third LED 76b is mounted on the second light emitting substrate 76 on which the second LED 76a is mounted, it is not necessary to separately provide a dedicated light emitting substrate for the third LED 76b, and the number of components can be reduced and the structure can be reduced. It can be simplified. In addition, since the light from the third LED 76b is guided to the rear part of the guide part 57 by the opaque cylindrical member 78 and the cylindrical part 77 having low light transmittance (see FIG. 11), the guide part 57 is made strong. The effect of light emission can be improved by brightening with light. In other words, the third LED 76b is mounted on the second light-emitting substrate 76 on which the second LED 76a that illuminates the second ball passage 62 from the rear is mounted, and the parts are made common so that the guide portion 57 that illuminates with the third LED 76b can be obtained. Even if the distance is increased, the light from the third LED 76b can be efficiently guided to the guide portion 57 to effectively brighten the light. Further, since the opaque cylindrical member 78 that guides the light of the third LED 76b is configured separately from the front member 39 and the rear member 40, the portion that guides the light of the third LED 76b in the front member 39 and the rear member 40 Need not be different from the other parts and can facilitate the manufacture of the part.
