The arc-shaped inner rail 61 formed in the above is planted. The front outer periphery of the game board 13 is surrounded by the inner rails 61 and the outer rails 62, and the front and back are surrounded by the game board 13 and the glass unit 16 (see FIG. 1). A game area in which a game is played is formed by the behavior of the game. The game area is a front area of the game board 13 and is divided by two rails 61 and 62 and a resin outer edge member 73 connecting the rails (a prize opening and the like are provided and launched). Area where the ball flows down).

  The two rails 61 and 62 are provided to guide the ball fired from the ball launch unit 112a (see FIG. 4) to the top of the game board 13. A return ball preventing member 68 is attached to the end portion (upper left part in FIG. 2) of the inner rail 61, and the situation in which the ball guided to the upper part of the game board 13 once comes back into the ball guide passage is prevented. Be done. At the end of the outer rail 62 (the upper right part in FIG. 2), the rubber return 69 is attached to a position corresponding to the largest flying portion of the ball, and the ball fired with a predetermined momentum strikes the rubber return 69 Is bounced back to the center while being attenuated.

  In this pachinko machine 10, when the first winning hole 64 and the second winning hole 640 have been prized, a lottery of a special symbol (first symbol) is performed, and the ball passes through the through gate 67. A normal symbol (second symbol) is drawn. In the special symbol lottery performed for the first winning port 64 and the second winning port 640, it is determined whether the special symbol is a big hit or not, and the special symbol big hit is determined. In that case, the jackpot type is also determined.

  In this pachinko machine 10, in the low probability state of the special symbol, it is determined that the special symbol is a big hit with a probability of 1/320, and in the high probability state of the special symbol (also referred to as the probable change state of the special symbol), 60 minutes. A special symbol jackpot is determined with a probability of 1. In addition, for convenience of explanation, the lottery of the special symbol performed for entering the first winning opening 64 is referred to as “lot of the special symbol 1”, and the special performed for entering the second winning opening 640 The lottery of symbols is referred to as the "special symbol 2 lottery".

  When the jackpot of the special symbol is reached, the pachinko machine 10 shifts to the special game state, and the special winning opening 65a which is normally closed is closed until a predetermined time (for example, 30 seconds elapses) or 10 balls are won ) The operation to be released is repeated up to 15 times (15 rounds). As a result, a large number of balls are won in the specific winning opening 65a, and therefore, a large number of prize balls are paid out from the normal time. In the present embodiment, it is controlled such that 15 winning balls are paid out when one gaming ball enters the specified winning hole 65a.

  Note that there are six types of special symbol jackpot types: “jackpot A”, “jackpot B”, “jackpot C”, “jackpot a”, “jackpot b”, and “jackpot c” (FIG. 14). reference). Although the details will be described later, the open pattern of the specific winning opening 65a is controlled to be different depending on the jackpot type.

  When the lottery of the special symbol (the first symbol) is performed, the variation display of the special symbol is started in the first symbol display device 37, and after a predetermined time has elapsed, the special symbol indicating the lottery result is stopped and displayed. If the ball enters the first winning opening 64 or the second winning opening 640 while the variable display is being performed in the first symbol display device 37, the number of entering times is at most 4 for each type of winning opening. The number of holding balls is indicated by the first symbol display device 37 and also indicated by the third symbol display device 81.

  When the variable display is finished in the first symbol display device 37, the number of balls reserved for the first winning opening 64 (number of balls reserved for special symbol 1), or the number of balls reserved for the second winning opening 640 (special symbol 2) If the number of holding balls is left, the next special symbol lottery is performed, and variable display according to the lottery is started. When both the number of reserved balls of special symbol 1 and the number of reserved balls of special symbol 2 remain, the lottery based on the reserved balls of special symbol 2 is preferentially executed.

  In the lottery of the normal symbol (the second symbol), the success or failure of the normal symbol is determined. When a normal symbol comes into contact, the motorized role object 640a attached to the second winning opening 640 is opened for a predetermined time, and the ball easily enters the second winning opening 640. That is, when a normal symbol is hit, it becomes easy for the ball to enter the second winning opening 640, and as a result, it becomes easy to draw a special symbol.

  In addition, when the lottery of the ordinary symbol (the second symbol) is performed, the variation display of the ordinary symbol is started in the second symbol display device 83 (see FIG. 4), and after a predetermined time has passed, the ordinary result showing the lottery result The symbol is displayed stopped. If the ball passes through the through gate 67 while the variable display is being performed in the second symbol display device 83, the number of passes is suspended up to four times, and the number of holding balls is displayed by the first symbol display device 37 And is also shown in the second symbol hold lamp 84 (see FIG. 4). When the variation display is finished in the second symbol display device 83, if the number of holding balls for the through gate 67 remains, the next normal symbol lottery is performed, and the variation display according to the lottery is started Ru.

  In this embodiment, as a value added after the end of the jackpot, a special symbol probability change state (high probability state) is given until the special symbol lottery ends 100 times after the special gaming state ends, and the special symbol lottery is After 100 times, it is configured to be set to the normal state.

  In the present embodiment, when the definite variation state of the special symbol is given after the end of the special gaming state, the definite variation state of the special symbol is configured to end according to the number of times of drawing of the special symbol. For example, after a jackpot game of a predetermined jackpot type (for example, jackpot A, jackpot B, jackpot a to be described later), from the end of the jackpot to the next jackpot, the pachinko machine 10 There may be a transition to a high probability state of special symbol (due to special variation of symbol). In this case, even after the jackpot game of another jackpot type (for example, jackpot C, jackpot b, jackpot c, which will be described later), it may be configured to be in a short time state of a normal symbol until the special symbol lottery ends 100 times. good.

  In addition, the lottery number of the special symbol to which the definite variation state (high probability state) of the special symbol mentioned above is given is not limited to 100 times. For example, it may be 50 times less than 100 times or 200 times more than 100 times.

  In addition, the number of drawing times of the special symbol in the time-saving state of the above-mentioned normal symbol is not limited to 100 times. For example, it may be 50 times or 5 times.

  Here, the "special symbol high probability state" refers to a state in which the subsequent jackpot probability is increased as added value after the end of the jackpot, so-called probability fluctuation (due to probability change), in other words, to the special gaming state It is the state of the game which is easy to shift. The high probability state of the special symbol in this embodiment (during a definite variation of the special symbol) includes a game state in which the ball is likely to be won in the second winning opening 640 by increasing the probability of hitting the normal symbol (second symbol).

  On the other hand, "low probability state of special symbol" refers to the time when the special symbol is not in a certain variation, and the jackpot probability is a normal condition, that is, a state in which the jackpot probability is lower than that in the special symbol.

  In addition, the time saving state (time saving) of the normal symbol refers to a gaming state in which the ball is likely to be awarded to the second winning opening 640 because the probability of hitting the normal symbol is increased.

  In addition, the normal state means a game state (a state in which neither the jackpot probability nor the normal symbol (second symbol) hit probability is increased) that is neither the probability change of the special symbol nor the short time of the normal symbol.

  During the probabilistic change of the special symbol and the normal symbol time, not only does the probability of hitting the normal symbol increase, but the time for opening the electric accessory 640a associated with the second winning prize opening 640 is also changed to the normal state. A long time is set by comparison. When the motorized part 640a is in the open state (opened state), the ball reaches the second winning opening 640 compared to when the motorized part 640a is closed (closed state). It becomes easy condition. Therefore, it becomes easy for the ball to enter the second winning opening 640 during the special symbol change or the normal symbol time. That is, it becomes easy to perform the lottery of a special symbol.

  In addition, in addition to changing the opening time, instead of changing the opening time of the electric accessory 640a associated with the second prize opening 640 during the special symbol change or the normal symbol time reduction, The number of times the motorized accessory 640a is opened when it has a normal symbol may be configured to be larger than that in the normal state.

  In addition, the probability of hitting the normal symbol (the second symbol) is not changed during the probability change of the special symbol or the normal symbol, the time when the electric accessory 640a associated with the second winning prize opening 640 is opened, and the electric At least one of the opening times of the accessory 640 a may be changed.

  In addition, during the change of probability of the special symbol or during the short time of the normal symbol, the time for opening the electric accessory 640a associated with the second prize opening 640 and the number of times the electric accessory 640a is released are not changed, and the normal symbol (first Only the hit probability of 2 symbols) may be configured to be up compared to the normal state.

  First symbol display devices 37A and 37B each having a plurality of LEDs and a 7-segment display as light emitting means 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. The stop symbol indicates whether the symbol corresponds to the probability variation big hit or the symbol corresponding to the normal big hit or not by the lighted state, or indicates the number of holding balls by the lighted state, and by the 7-segment display device, the round of the big hit 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 game area, there are provided a plurality of general winning openings 63 in which five to fifteen balls are paid out as winning balls by winning balls. 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. A third symbol display device 81 configured of a liquid crystal display (hereinafter simply referred to as “display device”) that performs variable display, and an LED that variably displays the second symbol triggered by the passage of a ball of through gate 67 A second symbol display device 83 (see FIG. 4) 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 configured of a large 9-inch liquid crystal display, and the display content is controlled by the display control device 114 (see FIG. 4), for example, the upper, middle and lower 3 One symbol column 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). A decorative display is performed according to the display of the symbol display devices 37A and 37B. Instead of the display device, the third symbol display device 81 may be configured using, for example, a reel.

  In the present embodiment, the third symbol is configured of ten main symbols attached with the numbers "0" to "9". In the pachinko machine 10 of the present embodiment, when the lottery result of the special symbol performed by the main control unit 110 (see FIG. 4) described later is a big hit, the variation display in which the same main symbol is aligned is performed. A jackpot is generated after the variable display ends. On the other hand, when the lottery result of the special symbol is out, the variable display in which the same main symbol is not aligned is performed.

  For example, if the lottery result of the special symbol is "big hit B", "big hit C", "big hit b", "big hit c", even number "0, 2, 4, 6, 8" is added A variable display in which the main symbols are aligned is performed. On the other hand, in the case of "big hit A" or "big hit a", any number among all the numbers "0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9" including the odd number Fluctuation display in which main symbols to which are added is aligned is performed. On the other hand, if the lottery result of the special symbol is off, the variable display in which the main symbols of the same number are not aligned is performed.

  Next, a display (hitting method navigation) that is displayed on the third symbol display device 81 and prompts the user to strike a ball aiming at the right or left path (flow path) of the game board 13 will be described.

  As described above, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the present embodiment, the electric accessory 640a is easily opened when the special symbol is changed or the normal symbol is in a short-time state. The ball can be stably and easily entered into the second winning hole 640 by hitting (right hitting). In addition, although it will be described later in detail, if it becomes a big hit by the drawing of the special symbol performed based on the ball entering the second winning opening 640 (lottery of the special symbol 2), to the first winning opening 64 Compared to the case where it becomes a big hit by the drawing of the special symbol performed based on the ball entering the ball (drawing of the special symbol 1), it is easy to be a big hit (big hit a) that can obtain the maximum profit.

  Therefore, it is advantageous for the player to perform the right-handed hitting in the probability change state of the special symbol given after the end of the jackpot or the short time state of the normal symbol. In other words, even if the probability change state of the special symbol or the short time state of the normal symbol is set, the ball cannot be stably entered into the second winning opening 640 unless the player hits the right. Therefore, the player may not be able to sufficiently receive the benefits of the special symbol's probability variation state and the normal symbol's time saving state.

  Therefore, in this embodiment, the player can display a specific image (right-handed navigation) in the special symbol probability change state or the normal symbol time reduction state, thereby allowing the player to display the special symbol probability change state or the normal symbol time reduction state. It is configured to ensure that the benefits of becoming

  In right-handed navigation, the characters “Aim for the right !!” are displayed on the third symbol display device 81, and three right-pointing arrows are displayed above and below the characters. By displaying these characters and arrows, it is possible to make the player feel that the ball should be launched into the path (flow path) provided on the right side of the game board 13.

  Also, if it is advantageous for the player by playing the jackpot game leftward, in the present embodiment, the player erroneously rightwards by displaying a specific image (leftward navigation). The game is prevented from being played, and it is configured that the player can easily obtain the benefit obtained by hitting the left.

  In the left-handed navi, characters such as "Aim for the left!" Are displayed on the third symbol display device 81, and three left-pointing arrows are displayed above and below the character. By displaying these characters and the arrow, it is possible to make the player feel that the ball should be launched into a path provided on the left side of the game board 13.

  The second symbol display device 83 (see FIG. 4) displays a symbol of “o” and a symbol of “x” as a display symbol (a second symbol (not shown)) each time the ball passes through the through gate 67. The variable display is performed to alternately turn on for a predetermined time. In the pachinko machine 10, when it is detected that the ball has passed the through gate 67, a winning lottery is performed. As a result of the winning lottery, if it is a win, the second symbol display device 83 stops and displays the symbol “◯” after the second symbol variation is displayed. Further, if the result of the winning lottery is out of alignment, in the second symbol display device 83, the symbol “x” is stopped and displayed after the variation display of the third symbol.

  In the pachinko machine 10, when the variable display on the second symbol display device 83 stops at a predetermined symbol (in this embodiment, a symbol “◯”), the electric accessory 640a attached to the second winning opening 640 is predetermined. It is configured to be activated (opened) only for a period of time.

  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 combination 640 a of the second winning opening 640 to be in the open state. Therefore, it is possible to make it easy for the ball to win the second winning opening 640 during the probability change and during the time saving.

  In addition, the second winning opening 640 during the definite change or time reduction by other methods, such as increasing the open probability and increasing the opening time and opening number of the motorized combination 640a per hit, which increases the hit probability during definite 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 times of opening of the motorized role product 640a with respect to may be constant regardless of the gaming state.

  The through gate 67 is assembled to the game board 13 in the left and right regions of the variable display device unit 80, and is configured so that a part of the ball fired on the game board 13 can pass therethrough. When the ball passes through gate 67, a lottery for winning the second symbol is performed. After the winning lottery, the second symbol display device 83 (see FIG. 4) displays a variation. If the winning lottery result is a winning lottery, the symbol “○” is displayed as the variation display stop symbol. If the result of is out of view, the symbol of "x" is displayed as a stop symbol of the variable display.

  The number of reserved balls, which is the number of passes through the through-gate 67 of the sphere, is displayed by the above-described first symbol display devices 37A and 37B and is also lit on the second symbol holding lamp 84 (see FIG. 4). Four second symbol holding lamps 84 are provided corresponding to the maximum number of holdings, and are arranged symmetrically below the third symbol display device 81.

  The second symbol variation display is performed by switching on and off of a plurality of lamps in the second symbol display device 83 (see FIG. 4), as in the present embodiment. 37A, 37B and part of the third symbol display device 81 may be used. Similarly, the second symbol holding lamp 84 may be turned on by a part of the third symbol display device 81.

  Further, the maximum number of holding balls for the passage of 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). The number of through gates 67 assembled is not limited to two, and may be one, for example. Further, the assembly position of the through gate 67 is not limited to the left and right of the variable display device unit 80, and may be, for example, below the variable display device unit 80. In addition, since the number of reserved balls is indicated by the first symbol display devices 37A and 37B, the second symbol hold lamp 84 (see FIG. 4) may not be turned on.

  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, below the first winning opening 64 in a front view, a second winning opening 640 in which a ball can win is disposed. 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 winning balls to be paid out when the ball is won in the first winning opening 64 and the number of winning balls to be paid out when the ball is winning in the second winning opening 640 are configured the same. The number of winning balls to be paid out when the ball has won the first winning opening 64 and the number of winning balls to be paid out when the second winning opening 640 has the ball, for example, to the first winning 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 a motorized role 640 a. 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. On the other hand, the first winning opening 64 does not have the electric role piece 640a as provided in the second winning opening 640, and the gaming ball can always be in a state of being able to win.

  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 of becoming the big win as the type of big hit selected as the big hit if the big win (for example, emerging balls) is the probability of becoming the first win when the ball is won in the second winning opening 640 It is set higher than when the ball wins to 64.

  Therefore, during the normal operation, the electric winning combination 640a attached to the second winning opening 640 is often in a closed state, and it is difficult to win the second winning opening 640. Toward the left of the variable display device unit 80 so as to pass the ball (so-called “left-handed”). It is advantageous for the player to aim to be.

  On the other hand, the electric gate 640a attached to the second winning opening 640 is likely to be in the open state by passing the ball through the through gate 67 during definite variation or time, and it is easy to 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 advantageous for the player to aim for a big hit a by winning the second winning opening 640.

  In the pachinko machine 10 according to the present embodiment, since the configuration of the game board 13 is symmetrical, aiming at the first winning port 64 by “right-handed” or setting the second winning port 640 by “left-handed”. You can also aim. For this reason, the pachinko machine 10 according to the present embodiment allows the player to launch a ball according to the gaming state of the pachinko machine 10 (whether it is probable, short, or normal). It can be unnecessary to change "right-handed" and "right-handed". Therefore, the troublesomeness which changes how to hit a ball can be eliminated.

  A variable winning device 330 (see FIG. 6) is disposed below the first winning opening 64 and the second winning opening 640, and a specific winning opening 65a is provided substantially at the center. In the pachinko machine 10, when the jackpot lottery performed due to the winning in the first winning opening 64 or the second winning opening 640 becomes a big hit, after a predetermined time (variation time) has elapsed, the stop symbol of the big hit and 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) in which the ball is easy to win. In this special gaming state, the special winning opening 65a that is normally closed is opened for a predetermined time (for example, until 30 seconds have elapsed or ten balls have been won).

  The specific winning opening 65a is closed when a predetermined time elapses, and after the closing, the specific winning opening 65a is opened again for a predetermined time. The opening and closing operation of the specific winning hole 65a can be repeated, for example, 15 times (15 rounds) at the maximum. The state in which the opening / closing operation is performed is a form of a special gaming state advantageous to the player, and the player is given out a larger amount of prize balls than usual in order to give a gaming value (game value). Is done. Although details of the variable prize winning device 330 (see FIG. 6) for opening and closing the specific prize winning opening 65a will be described later, in brief description, the moving upper lid member 332 of the variable prize winning device 330 slides, so that the specific prize winning opening 65a is changed. Opened and closed (switched between an open state in which the game ball flowing down the moving upper lid member 332 reaches the front side of the specific winning port 65a and a closed state other than the open state in which the specific winning port 65a can be passed. ).

  Note that the special gaming state is not limited to the above-described form. A large opening is provided in the game area, which is opened and closed separately from the specific winning opening 65a, and when the LED corresponding to the big hit is turned on in the first symbol display devices 37A and 37B, the specific winning opening 65a is opened for a predetermined time The game state that the large opening provided separately from the specific winning opening 65a is opened for a predetermined period of time for a predetermined number of times during the opening of the specific winning opening 65a, triggered by the ball winning into the specific winning opening 65a It may be formed as a state. Further, the number of the specific winning opening 65a is not limited to one, and one or more than two (for example, three) may be arranged, and the arrangement position is the lower right side of the first winning opening 64 or the first Not limited to the lower left side of the winning opening 64, for example, the left side of the variable display unit 80 may be used.

  A sticking space K1 for sticking a certificate paper, an identification label or the like is provided at the lower right corner of the gaming board 13, and the certificate paper or the like attached to the sticking space K1 is a small window of the front frame 14. It can be viewed through 35 (see FIG. 1).

  The game board 13 is provided with an out port 314. A ball that flows down the game area and has not won any of the winning openings 63, 64, 65a, 640 is guided to the ball discharging path (not shown) through the out port 314. A pair of out ports 314 are arranged on the left and right of the specific winning port 65a.

  A large number of nails are implanted in the game board 13 in order to appropriately disperse and adjust the falling direction of the balls, and various members (features) such as a windmill are disposed (not shown).

  In this embodiment, about 10% of the game balls fired in the normal state go to the general winning opening 63, and about 10% flow down on the pegs (not shown) and enter the first winning opening 64. After the remaining about 80% flow down on the nail, it leaks from the first winning opening 64 and rolls on the movable top member 332, which will be described later, and passes through the out port 314. That is, when the game balls are continuously fired at intervals of 0.6 seconds, the game balls reach the moving upper lid member 332 at intervals of about 0.75 seconds. In this case, since it is possible to always maintain one or more game balls on the upper surface of the movable upper lid member 332, even if the opening time of the movable upper lid member 332 is short, the game balls are designated as the specific winning opening 65a. Can be made to flow down.

In FIGS. 6 and 7, the front unit 310 and the variable winning device 330 of the lower board unit 300 are further played from FIG. A state of being disassembled from the board 13 is illustrated. Also, in order to facilitate understanding, the game board 13 is illustrated in a simplified manner.

  As shown in FIG. 5, a specified winning hole 65 a is formed along the lower edge of the inner rail 61. Since the lower edge of the inner rail 61 is formed of a curved shape convex downward, the arrangement position of the specific winning opening 65a is compared to the case where the lower side of the specific winning opening 65a is formed by a straight line along the left and right direction. Can be lowered downward. As for the outer edge of the specific winning opening 65a, the upper side is formed by the movable upper lid member 332 (see FIG. 6), the lower side is formed by the lower edge of the inner rail 61, and the left and right sides are the left and right walls of the opening upper portion 313. It is formed with a part.

  As will be described later, the specific winning opening 65a is switched between the above-mentioned closed state and open state by the sliding movement of the movable upper cover member 332 back and forth, and the opening / closing operation of the specific winning opening 65a is, for example, 15 It is possible to repeat once (15 rounds).

  As shown in FIGS. 6 and 7, the lower board unit 300 is a unit constituting an out port 314 from which balls are discharged and a specific winning port 65a, and is drilled in the lower part of the game board 13 in the front-rear direction A front unit 310 that is fitted and fixed to the receiving opening 60a from the front side, and a front plate member 320 that is fastened and fixed to the front unit 310 from the front side and that has a spherical path formed on the back side; The variable prize-winning device 330 is mainly provided with a movable upper lid member 332 that is fitted into the opening 60a from the back side and fastened and fixed and changes the flow direction of the sphere.

  The front unit 310 includes a plate-shaped main body plate portion 311 formed so that a sphere can flow down on the front side, and an electric accessory 640a in which a pair of members are opened and closed in the center on the front side of the main body plate portion 311. The plate-shaped inclined plate portion 312 protruding from the front side at the left and right upper portions of the main body plate portion 311, the upper opening portion 313 recessed from the lower bottom portion of the main body plate portion 311, and the upper opening portion thereof It mainly includes a pair of out ports 314 that are drilled in the front-rear direction on both the left and right sides of the portion 313 and from which the balls are discharged out of the game area.

  Body plate portion 311 is formed in the front and rear direction at a position surrounded by a first winning opening lower side 311a formed above motorized part 640a and forming the lower side of first winning opening 64 and a pair of members of motorized part 640a. A second winning opening 640 to be provided, a light irradiation device 311 b disposed below the second winning opening 640 and illuminating the front side of the second winning opening 640, and a rib shape on the outside of the out opening 314 directed to the front side And a ball-flowing rib 311c that is provided in a protruding manner.

  The light irradiation device 311b is housed in the housing recess 323a (see FIG. 7) of the front plate member 320 and is directed upward (to the second winning port 640 side) due to the ball winning in the second winning port 640. LED member that is irradiated with light.

  Note that the control of the light emission timing of the light irradiation device 311b can be arbitrarily set. For example, when the electric accessory 640a is in an open state, and the ball is likely to enter the second prize opening 640, light irradiation that is normally turned off for the purpose of notifying the player of the change in the state Control may be performed to cause the device 311 b to emit light or to turn off the light emitting device 311 b that is normally lit.

  The ball flow rib 311c adjusts the flow direction of the ball rolling along the inner rail 61, and will be described in detail later with reference to FIG.

  The inclined plate portion 312 is formed such that a ball can roll on the upper side surface, and is disposed on the upper left and right sides of the electric accessory 640a, and is inclined downward as the electric accessory 640a comes closer. As a result, when the electric accessory 640a is in the open state where it falls to the left and right, the ball that rolls down by the inclined plate portion 312 can be awarded to the second prize opening 640 with high probability. On the other hand, when the electric accessory 640a is in the closed state, the ball that flows down by rolling the inclined plate portion 312 can be dropped to the front side of the upper opening portion 313 with high probability.

  The opening upper portion 313 is formed to be inclined upward as it goes to the left and right center. Here, the vertical width of the left and right wall portions of the upper opening portion 313 (corresponding to the left and right wall portions of the specific winning port 65a) is set such that the vertical width of the central portion in the left-right direction of the specific winning port 65a is equal to or greater than the diameter of the sphere. Can be set to a length equal to or less than the diameter of the sphere (see FIG. 12). In this case, although it is difficult to win a ball from the left and right ends of the specific winning opening 65a, the ball flows down along the inner rail 61 to the central portion of the game board 13, and the central portion in the left and right direction of the specific winning opening 65a. Since it is possible to win from, the game can be continued.

  Here, when the upper and lower sides of the specific winning opening 65a are parallel planes (planes extending in the left-right direction), the straight line intersecting the inner rail 61 is the same as the length of the lower side of the specific winning opening 65a, It is necessary to raise the specific winning opening 65a from the lower edge of the inner rail 61 and arrange it. Therefore, the position of the specific winning combination opening 65a becomes high.

  On the other hand, in the present embodiment, since the lower side surface of the specific winning opening 65a is curved like the lower side surface of the inner rail 61, it is not necessary to raise the specific winning opening 65a, and the specific winning opening 65a is positioned at a low position. Can be arranged.

  In addition, since the upper side surface of the specific winning opening 65a is inclined downward as it approaches the left and right ends, the ball toward the specific winning opening 65a is compared with the case where the upper side surface is formed by a plane extending in the left and right direction. You can lower the placement of the nails to guide you down. Thereby, the lower edge of the third symbol display device 81 can be lowered.

  The out port 314 is formed as a pair on the left and right sides of the upper opening portion 313, and the lower side of the out port 314 is disposed below the left and right ends of the upper opening portion 313, and the upper side of the out port 314 is disposed above. The That is, the opening upper part 313 is formed below the out port 314. Thereby, the arrangement | positioning of the variable prize-winning apparatus 330 mentioned later can be lowered | hung below, and the lower edge of the 3rd symbol display apparatus 81 can be lowered | hung. Even in such an arrangement, in this embodiment, the sphere is caused to flow down on the upper surface of the movable upper cover member 332 that has an upper surface substantially the same shape as the shape of the upper opening portion 313 and is slid in the front-rear direction. Is discharged to the out port 314 (see FIG. 12), so that the game can be continued.

  The front plate member 320 is a plate-like member formed of a light-transmitting resin material, and is disposed on the front side of the front unit 310 and formed so that a sphere can flow between the main body plate portion 311. A plate-like main body plate portion 321, a first winning port front portion 322 that is disposed at the upper end portion of the main body plate portion 321 and guides a ball to the lower side 311 a of the first winning port, and an electric accessory 640 a. The electric support lower supporting portion 323, the lower lower plate 324 disposed along the lower surface of the outer port 314, and the rear side of the main body plate 321 along the lower edge of the inner rail 61. And a ball feeding unit 325.

  The main body plate portion 321 is provided with a ball flow rib 321a that is projected in a rib shape on the back side outside the out-out lower plate 324. The ball flow rib 321a adjusts the flow direction of the ball rolling along the inner rail 61, and details thereof will be described later with reference to FIG.

  The electrically driven accessory lower support portion 323 includes a housing recess 323a which is a horizontally long recess, and the light irradiation device 311b is housed in the housing recess 323a.

  A thin rib extending in the front-rear direction is continuously provided in the left-right direction on the upper side surface of the out-hole lower plate 324. In addition, the out-port lower plate 324 includes a step portion 324 a that protrudes upward at the left and right inner end portions. The unevenness formed on the upper side surface of the out-hole lower plate 324 can decelerate the ball that has flowed down. Further, the rib formed on the out-port lower plate 324 is formed to be inclined downward as it goes to the back side. Thereby, the speed which discharges the ball which flowed down to out mouth 314 can be improved.

  Since the inclined plate portion 312 described above is formed immediately above the out-out lower plate 324 (see FIG. 12), the ball that falls after rolling the inclined plate portion 312 faces the out-out lower plate 324. Falling is suppressed. That is, the balls falling after rolling on the inclined plate portion 312 fall inward in the left-right direction of the pair of out-out lower plates 324 (the position where the moving upper lid member 332 is disposed) It falls either on the outer end (in the vicinity of the ball-sinking rib 321a and at the boundary between the formation area of the rib and the rail through which the ball flows). These are both outside the rib forming range. Thereby, it can suppress that a ball | bowl falls from height to the out-port lower plate 324, and the durability of the out-port lower plate 324 can be improved.

  The step portion 324a is a step formed between the out port 314 and the specific winning port 65a, and a sphere that flows down from the left and right direction and flows down the upper side surface of the out port lower plate 324 exceeds the step portion 324a. Thus, it is prevented from flowing down to the center in the left-right direction (see FIG. 12). That is, the ball flowing down from the left and right direction and flowing down the upper side surface of the out-hole lower plate 324 is guided only to the out-port 314.

  The ball feeding unit 325 mainly includes a back side surface 325a formed on the back side, and a left and right side surface 325b connected to the back side surface 325a and formed on the left and right sides.

  The back side surface 325a is inclined downward toward the back side, and the left and right side surfaces 325b are inclined toward the center toward the back side. Thereby, the flow-down direction of the ball which reached ball sending part 325 can be turned to the back side. Therefore, it is possible to suppress that the ball stays in front of the specific winning opening 65a, and to suppress so-called over winning.

  Next, the variable winning device 330 will be described with reference to FIGS. 8 is an exploded front perspective view of the variable winning device 330, FIG. 9 is an exploded rear perspective view of the variable winning device 330, and FIG. 10A is a top view of the variable winning device 330. 10 (b) is a front view of the variable winning device 330, and FIG. 10 (c) is a side view of the variable winning device 330 as viewed in the direction of the arrow Xc in FIG. 10 (b).

A lightening hole 332a2 is mainly provided, and a guide rib 332a3 which is extended downward in the left-right direction end of the plate-like portion 332a1 and extends in the front-rear direction.

  The plate-like portion 332a1 includes a front inclined side surface 332a1f that is formed to be inclined toward the back side as it goes downward (see FIG. 11) and that is recessed toward the back side as it goes toward the center in the left-right direction. When the front inclined side 332a1f is recessed toward the back side toward the center in the left-right direction, the ball can flow to the center when the ball is sandwiched between the front plate member 320 and the front inclined side 332a1f It is possible to prevent the ball from blocking the sliding operation of the movable top member 332.

  In addition, since the front inclined side 332 a 1 f is formed as a portion that reflects light as described later, in order to reflect light effectively, a metal film is formed on the front inclined side 332 a 1 f or mirror processing is performed. You may do it. In the present embodiment, a tape that reflects light is attached.

  In the assembled state (see FIG. 10), the guide rib 332a3 is formed along the left and right side surfaces of the front opening 331a1, and slides with the lower side surface of the front opening 331a1. Accordingly, it is possible to suppress the positional deviation in the left-right direction when the movable top member 332 slides.

  The center rib 332 c is formed at a bent portion of the front side plate portion 332 a formed by bending a plate shape. Thereby, the rigidity of the front side plate portion 332a can be improved. Further, when the movable upper lid member 332 is slid forward (when the movable upper lid member 332 of the variable prize winning device 330 is in an extended state), the movable upper lid member 332 is fastened to the back side of the opening upper portion 313 (FIG. 11B). )reference). Thereby, it is possible to prevent the moving upper lid member 332 from malfunctioning due to the collision between the central rib 332c and the sphere.

  The connection hole 332 d is a through hole through which the connection portion 334 b 4 of the lever member 334 b is inserted, and displacement due to swinging of the lever member 334 b is transmitted to the movable top member 332 (see FIG. 11).

  The solenoid 333 mainly includes a main body 333a serving as a driving source and a wedge-shaped wedge member 333b disposed below the main body 333a and vertically moved below the lever member 334b.

  The rear cover member 334 mainly includes a plate-like main body portion 334a and a lever member 334b that is pivotally supported by the main body portion 334a so as to be movable in the front-rear direction.

  The lever member 334b includes a main body portion 334b1 extending in the vertical direction, a pair of shaft portions 334b2 projecting in a columnar shape in the left and right directions at the lower end portion of the main body portion 334b1, and pivotally supported by the main body portion 334a A lower claw portion 334b3 which extends downward from the main body portion 334b1 at a substantially intermediate position between the pair of shaft portions 334b2 and is formed so as to be able to accommodate the wedge-shaped member 333b between itself and the main body portion 334b1 And a connecting portion 334b4 that bulges into a columnar shape.

  Next, sliding movement of the movable top member 332 will be described with reference to FIG. 11A is a cross-sectional view of the variable winning device 330 along the line XIa-XIa in FIG. 10B, and FIG. 11B slides the movable upper lid member 332 from the state of FIG. 11A. It is sectional drawing of the variable winning prize apparatus 330 after making it let. 11A illustrates a retracted state in which the movable upper lid member 332 is disposed rearward, and FIG. 11B illustrates an extended state in which the movable upper lid member 332 is disposed forward, In order to facilitate understanding of the path E1, the illustration of the central rib 332c is partially omitted. Further, in FIG. 11A and FIG. 11B, the inner rail 61 and the front plate member 320 in an assembled state (see FIG. 2) are virtually illustrated by imaginary lines.

  As shown in FIG. 11A, when the movable upper lid member 332 forms a retracted state, the wedge-shaped member 333b is disposed upward, and the lever member 334b is inclined backward. In this state, the ball can flow down the front of the variable winning device 330, that is, the ball can be hit (opened) at the specified winning opening 65a (see FIGS. 5 and 12).

  On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 11 (b), when the movable upper lid member 332 forms an extended state, the lever member 334b is tilted forward about the shaft portion 334b2 by pressing the wedge-shaped member 333b downward. The movable top member 332 is slid to the front side while being in contact with the side surface of the side accommodation portion 331 d. In this state, the ball can not be won (closed state) in the specific winning opening 65a (see FIGS. 5 and 12).

  In this case, the back side surface of the lower end of the wedge-shaped member 333b abuts on the end of the lower claw portion 334b3 of the lever member 334b in the front-rear direction, whereby the swinging of the lever member 334b is mechanically restricted. (The wedge-shaped member 333b is disposed in the moving direction of the lower claw portion 334b3, and the moving direction of the lower claw portion 334b3 and the moving direction of the wedge-shaped member 333b are orthogonal to each other). Therefore, the driving force of the solenoid 333 can be suppressed as compared with the case where the swing of the lever member 334 b is stopped by the driving force of the solenoid 333.

  Here, with reference to FIG. 11, the path of the light emitted from the light irradiation device 331c will be described.

  As shown in FIG. 11A, when the movable upper cover member 332 is in the retracted state, the light emitted upward from the light irradiation part 331c1 reaches the front inclined side 332a1f of the plate part 332a1 along the path E1. To do. At this time, since the front inclined side 332 a 1 f is formed to be inclined to the back side as it goes downward, the light which is emitted from below and reaches the front inclined side 332 a 1 f is reflected forward (to the player). In this case, the player can visually recognize the front inclined side surface 332a1f of the moving upper lid member 332 as if it is emitting light. Further, since the light reflected by the front inclined side surface 332a1f is projected into the light projection range E0 of the front plate member 320, the front plate member 320 can be noted. Thereby, the rendering capabilities of the movable top member 332 and the front plate member 320 can be improved.

  Here, in the case where the movable upper cover member 332 is provided with an LED or the like to make the movable upper cover member 332 emit light, there is a possibility that the upper movement cover member 332 may become larger. On the other hand, in the present embodiment, since the LED is not disposed on the moving upper lid member 332, the ability of the moving upper lid member 332 as an effect portion is improved while suppressing an increase in the size of the moving upper lid member 332. Can do.

  As shown in FIG. 11B, when the movable upper lid member 332 is in an extended state, light is emitted upward from the light irradiator 331c1 along the path E2 and the light toward the front inclined side 332a1f is the inner rail 61. The front side inclined side surface 332a1f of the plate-like portion 332a1 is not reached by being shielded. In this case, the light irradiated from the light irradiator 331c1 along the path E1 reaches the intermediate position of the plate-like portion 332a1 of the front side plate portion 332a and only passes through as it is, so the front inclined side 332a1f and the front plate member 320 Is seen darkly by the player.

  That is, depending on whether the movable upper cover member 332 is in the retracted state or in the extended state, whether or not the light irradiated from the light irradiation unit 331c1 reaches the front inclined side surface 332a1f changes and the front plate It changes whether the light projection range E0 of the member 320 is visually recognized brightly. Therefore, it is possible to confirm whether or not it is possible to win a ball at the specific winning opening 65a by confirming the brightness state of the light projection range E0 of the front inclined side surface 332a1f or the front plate member 320.

  Therefore, as in this embodiment, since the movable upper lid member 332 slides back and forth, even when it is difficult to grasp the change in the state of the movable upper lid member 332 in front view (FIGS. 12A and 12B). )), It is possible to easily confirm whether or not it is possible to win a ball in the specific winning opening 65a by the change in the brightness of the light projection range E0.

  Here, the movable upper lid member 332 is operated to form a closed state that prevents the passage of the ball to the specific winning port 65a and an open state that allows the passage of the ball to the specific winning port 65a ( The state of the brightness of the light projection range E0 is changed only by the back and forth slide movement). In other words, since the state of the light projection range E0 is changed only by the operation required for the moving upper cover member 332 to continue the game, no additional mechanism is required. In other words, the movable upper lid member 332 can be used for both the purpose of switching whether or not the sphere can pass through the specific winning opening 65a and the purpose of performing the effect by the light emitted from the light irradiation unit 331c1.

  In addition, when the sphere passes through the lower passage 331b, the light may be reflected by the sphere so that the light emitted from the light irradiation unit 331c is reflected. In this case, it is possible to brightly illuminate the vicinity of the inner rail 61 (below the light projection range E0 in FIG. 11A and FIG. 12B) in a front view.

  With reference to FIG. 12, the flow down of the ball in the case where the movable upper lid member 332 forms the overhanging state and in the case where the movable upper lid member 332 forms the retracted state will be described. 12 (a) and 12 (b) are partial front views of the game board 13. FIG. Note that FIG. 12 (a) shows the case where the movable upper lid member 332 forms an overhanging state (see FIG. 11 (b)), and FIG. 12 (b) shows the movable upper lid member 332 withdrawn (FIG. 11). The case of forming (a) is illustrated, and in FIGS. 12 (a) and 12 (b), the main body plate portion 321 of the front plate member 320 is illustrated by an imaginary line. In FIGS. 12 (a) and 12 (b), it is shown whether or not the movable top member 332 is extended depending on whether or not it is shaded. That is, in FIG. 12 (a) and FIG. 12 (b), the portion where the hatching is formed is in contact with the front plate member 320 or the front plate so as to block the passage of the sphere with the front plate member 320. This is a portion close to the member 320.

  In the state shown in FIG. 12A, the ball falling on the path C 2 flows down along the upper surface of the movable top member 332 and is discharged to the out port 314. In this case, the moving upper lid member 332 may fall down due to the weight of the sphere, and as a result, when the left and right ends of the moving upper lid member 332 are moved below the stepped portion 324a, the sphere is discharged to the out port 314. It becomes impossible and it will interfere with the game.

  On the other hand, in the present embodiment, the movable upper cover member 332 is several times as long as the length protruding to the front side of the deformed through hole 331a (about four times the length, see FIG. 11B). It is accommodated in the modified through-hole 331a and is formed so as to be able to contact the side surface of the modified through-hole 331a in the vertical direction across the front and rear direction of the variable winning device 330. Therefore, by reducing the clearance between the moving upper lid member 332 and the deformed through-hole 331a, it is possible to suppress the moving upper lid member 332 from falling down due to the weight of the ball colliding with the moving upper lid member 332. Thus, the left and right end portions of the movable upper cover member 332 can be formed at the surface position with the step portion 324a, and the nail to the specific winning opening 65a can be lowered downward, so that the bottom of the third symbol display device 81 The edge can be lowered downward.

  As shown in FIG. 12B, in the case where the movable upper lid member 332 forms a retracted state, the sphere can flow down toward the specific winning opening 65a. At this time, the balls rolling along the inner rail 61 in the path C1 from the left and right collide with the step 324a and are discharged to the out port 314, so the balls falling in the path C2 from above toward the specific winning hole 65a Rolls on the inner rail 61 and reaches the specific winning opening 65a.

  Here, in the present embodiment, the vertical width of the left and right end portions of the specific winning opening 65a is formed equal to or less than the diameter of the ball. That is, the distance in the vertical direction from the inner rail 61 at the left and right end portions of the movable top member 332 is equal to or less than the diameter of the sphere. Therefore, the height from the inner rail 61 of the step portion 324a can be reduced, and the arrangement of the out ports 314 to which the ball falling from the step portion 324a can be lowered.

  In this case, it is difficult for the ball to enter from the left and right end portions of the specific winning opening 65a (in addition, in this embodiment, the ball is blocked from the base plate 60). However, since the lower side of the specific winning opening 65a is formed along the inner rail 61, the ball flowing down to the front side of the right and left end portions of the specific winning opening 65a is moved along the inner rail 61 toward the center of the game area by gravity. It is moved and enters the specified winning hole 65a from there. In addition, since the lower edge of the inner rail 61 is formed to be inclined rearward (see FIG. 11), the ball can be smoothly entered into the specified winning opening 65a (see FIG. 12).

  As a result, the movable upper cover member 332 that forms the upper side of the specific winning opening 65a is spaced apart from the inner rail 61 above the diameter of the sphere at least near the center of the game area (the vicinity where the inner rail 61 is disposed at the lowest position). Since the movement top cover 332 can be moved down, the arrangement position of the movable top cover 332 can be lowered. Therefore, compared with the case where it is necessary to separate upward from the inner rail 61 at a position other than the center of the inner rail 61 beyond the diameter of the sphere, the arrangement position of the variable winning device 330 can be lowered downward. Thereby, the space on the back side of the game board 13 can be secured, and the lower edge of the third symbol display device 81 (see FIG. 2) can be lowered downward.

  Next, with reference to FIG. 13, the function of the ball flow ribs 311c and 321a and the ball feeding portion 325 and the fact that light is collected by the front inclined side surface 332a1f will be described. FIG. 13 (a) is a cross-sectional view of the lower panel unit 300 taken along line XIIIa-XIIIa in FIG. 12 (b), and FIG. 13 (b) is a lower panel unit 300 taken along line XIIIb-XIIIb in FIG. 12 (a). FIG. 13C is a cross-sectional view of the panel surface lower unit 300 in which the arrangement of the light irradiation units 331c1 is virtually changed from FIG. 13B.

  In FIG. 13A, the rolling path of the ball is described by paths C1a, C1b, and C2a, and the movable top member 332 in the retracted state is illustrated by an imaginary line. The movable upper lid member 332 is on the near side (upper side of FIG. 12B) than the cross section of FIG. 13A, and is not actually visible, but for the convenience of explanation, it is viewed in the vertical direction (see FIG. 13). It is illustrated by an imaginary line in FIG. 13 (a) in a state where the positions in the vertical direction coincide. Moreover, in FIG.13 (b) and FIG.13 (c), three balls which flow down the downward path | pass 331b are hypothetically | virtually shown in figure.

  The path of the ball which is rolled along the inner rail 61 (see FIG. 6) from the left and right direction and discharged to the out port 314 will be described. As shown in FIG. 13A, the ball rolling toward the center in FIG. 13A from the left and right direction abuts on at least one of the ball flow rib 311c or the ball flow rib 321a. That is, the ball that rolls while abutting the main body plate portion 311 of the front unit 310 abuts the ball flow rib 311c, and the ball that rolls while abutting the main body plate portion 321 of the front plate member 320 is a ball flow rib. 321a abuts.

  Here, when the sphere comes into contact with the ball flow rib 311c, the velocity direction of the sphere is directed in the direction along the path C1a, and then comes into contact with the ball flow rib 321a. Therefore, regardless of whether the ball rolls while contacting the main body plate portion 311 of the front unit 310 or rolls while contacting the main body plate portion 321 of the front plate member 320, It can be brought into contact with the rib 321a.

  By causing a ball that rolls along the inner rail 61 (see FIG. 6) to abut against the rib 321a, the velocity direction of the ball can be directed in the direction along the path C1b. In this case, the speed of the sphere can be directed to the back side (upper side in FIG. 13 (a)) before the sphere is arranged on the front side of the out port 314. Therefore, it is possible to shorten the period from when the ball is arranged on the front side of the out port 314 to when the ball is discharged from the game area, and to prevent the ball from staying on the front side of the out port 314. While being possible, the opening width of out mouth 314 can be controlled. As a result, when the specific winning opening 65a (see FIG. 5) and the out-port 314 are arranged side by side, the arrangement of the specific winning opening 65a can be lowered below the game area.

  The case where the balls fall between the stepped portions 324a arranged in parallel in a pair will be described. In this case, the sphere that has fallen between the step portions 324a rolls toward the center in the left-right direction, and the sphere contacts the left and right side surfaces 325b of the ball feed portion 325, so that the speed direction of the sphere changes to the path C2a A game ball flowing down the upper surface of 61 hits the left and right side surfaces 325b of the ball feeding portion 325, the speed direction of the game ball is switched to the direction toward the lower passage 331b, and flows down toward the lower passage 331b. The path along which the game ball passes). As a result, the ball can be prevented from staying on the front side of the specific winning opening 65a (see FIG. 5), so that the over winning can be suppressed.

  When the sphere flows down along the lower passage 331b and crosses the light irradiated from the light irradiation unit 331c1, the sphere blocks the light so that the light does not reach the front inclined side surface 332a1f. Therefore, whether the ball has won the specific winning opening 65a (see FIG. 12) or not can be confirmed depending on whether the front inclined side 332a1f or the light projection range E0 of the front plate member 320 is visually recognized bright or dark it can.

  Thus, as in the present embodiment, the front plate member 320 formed of a light-transmissive resin material is disposed in front of the specific winning opening 65a, and it is difficult to visually recognize the inside of the specific winning opening 65a. Also, it is possible to confirm that the ball has entered the specified winning combination opening 65a by the change of the brightness of the light projection range E0. Therefore, it is not necessary to remove the specific winning port 65a from diagonally above in order to confirm that a ball enters the specific winning port 65a, and the burden on the player can be reduced.

  In the present embodiment, the irradiation direction of the light irradiated from the light irradiation unit 331c1 and the flow direction of the sphere flowing down the lower passage 331b intersect at an angle close to a right angle (see FIG. 13B). Therefore, the ball enters the specific winning opening 65a as compared to the case where the sphere flows down in the light traveling direction (see FIG. 13C) or the case where the sphere flows down along the light irradiation direction. It is possible to shorten a period in which the sphere flowing down the lower passage 331b shields the light. In other words, the period in which the front inclined side 332a1f and the light projection range E0 of the front plate 320 can be seen bright can be extended, and the rendering ability of the front inclined side 332a1f and the front plate 320 can be secured.

  As shown in FIG. 13B, when the light path E1 and the flow direction of the sphere flowing down the lower passage 331b intersect (cross) at an angle close to a right angle, the light path E1 is blocked by the sphere. Thereafter, the light is not blocked by the sphere around the passage of the sphere through the front end portion (right side of FIG. 13B) of the lower passage 331b (the light reaches the front inclined side surface 332a1f).

  In this case, even if the spheres are connected and flow down the lower passage 331b, the path E1 is shielded for each sphere, so that the brightness change of the light projection range E0 of the front inclined side surface 332a1f or the front plate member 320 is changed. By confirming, it is possible to confirm the number of balls entering the specific winning hole 65a.

  On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 13C, when the light path E3 and the flow-down direction of the ball flowing down the lower passage 331b are close to parallel, after the light path E3 is blocked by the ball, When the sphere reaches the rear end of the lower passage 331b (left side of FIG. 13C, in the vicinity of the sensor S) and falls downward, the light is not blocked by the sphere (so that the light reaches the front inclined side surface 332a1f). Become). That is, until that time, the light path E3 remains blocked by the sphere.

  In this case, when the spheres are connected and flow down the lower passage 331b, the light path E3 is blocked by the first sphere (the left sphere in FIG. 13C) as long as the sphere is arranged in the lower passage 331b. Further, after the first sphere falls downward from the rear end portion (left side of FIG. 13C) of the lower passage 331b, the light path to the second sphere (right sphere of FIG. 13C). E3 is blocked. Moreover, when the second ball falls from the rear end of the lower passage 331b, if the next ball (the third ball) enters the lower passage 331b, the light path to the ball E3 is blocked. In this way, the ball continues to shield the light path E3, and it is always viewed as dark while the ball is flowing down the lower passage 331b. That is, the number of times the number of balls entering the specified winning opening 65a does not necessarily match the number of times the light is recognized to be brightly recognized or darkly recognized, and the number of balls entering the specific winning opening 65a Confirmation becomes difficult. On the other hand, the present embodiment has the above-described superiority.

  As shown in FIG. 13 (a), the front inclined side 332a1f is formed to be recessed toward the rear side toward the center in the left-right direction, so the light irradiated from the pair of left and right light irradiators 331c1 is the front inclined side 332a1f. By being reflected, the light is condensed to the center of the front plate member 320 along the path E1, and reaches the light emission range E0 (see FIG. 12B).

  Here, in the present embodiment, since the front plate member 320 is disposed on the front side of the movable upper lid member 332, the specific winning opening 65a can be hidden, while the front inclined side 332a1f is viewed through the front plate member 320 This may make it difficult to grasp the change in the brightness of the front inclined side surface 332a1f. In that case, it is necessary to increase the light intensity of a light emitting element such as an LED used for the light irradiation unit 331c1, and there is a problem that the light emitting elements that can be used for the light irradiation unit 331c1 are limited.

  On the other hand, the front inclined side surface 332a1f condenses the light irradiated from the light irradiation unit 331c1 to the center of the front plate member 320, so that each of the light irradiated from the pair of light irradiation units 331c1 is overlapped, The intensity of light visually recognized in the light projection range E0 can be improved. Therefore, it is possible to improve the selection freedom of the light emitting element that can be used for the light irradiation part 331c1 (it becomes possible to select a light emitting element with low light intensity).

  Moreover, since the light irradiated from a pair of light irradiation part 331c1 is overlapped and visually recognized by front view (refer FIG.12 (b)), a pair of light irradiation is made by making light colors mutually differ. A total of three colors of light emitted from the part 331c1 and the combined color thereof can be visually recognized in the projection range E0 (see FIG. 12B).

  Here, since the light irradiated from each of the pair of light irradiation units 331c1 is shielded by a sphere that rolls along the path C2a independently (see FIG. 13), at the timing when the sphere shields the light, The color of the light visually recognized in the light projection range E0 can be switched variously.

  For example, in FIG. 13, a case is considered in which “blue” light is emitted from the right light irradiation unit 331 c 1 and “red” light is emitted from the left light irradiation unit 331 c 1. In this case, when the movable upper lid member 332 is in the retracted state, light is emitted in the order of “blue”, “purple (overlapping portion)”, and “red” from the right side in the light projection range E0 (see FIG. 12B). Is visible.

  In this case, if the sphere rolls along the path C2a on the right side of FIG. 13 and blocks the light irradiated from the light irradiation unit 331c1, the “blue” light is blocked, and thus the light projection range E0 Only “red” light is visible.

  On the other hand, when the sphere rolls along the path C2a on the left side of FIG. 13 and shields the light emitted from the light irradiation unit 331c1, the “red” color light is shielded. Only “blue” light is visible.

  Thus, the mode of the light visually recognized in the light projection range E0 can be changed depending on which path the sphere rolls and which light irradiation unit 331c1 shields. The change in the light mode is caused by a sphere that flows down the game area along a random path while colliding with a nail or the like, so that the change in the light mode can be generated at a random timing. That is, as compared with the case where the change in the mode of the light emitted from the light irradiation unit 331c1 is caused by electronic control, it is possible to perform a more rich effect and improve the effect.

  In the present embodiment, the front inclined side surface 332a1f is formed in a square shape as viewed from above, but may be formed in a parabolic shape in top view from the viewpoint of collecting light.

  The contents of the ROM 202 (see FIG. 4) in the first embodiment will be described with reference to FIG. FIG. 14A is a block diagram showing an electrical configuration of the ROM 202 in the main controller 110 in the first embodiment, and FIG. 14B shows the first hit type counter C4 and the jackpot type in the special symbol. FIG. 14C is a schematic diagram schematically showing the correspondence between the second random number counter C5 and the winning in the normal symbol.

  As shown in FIG. 14A, in the ROM 202 of the main control unit 110, as a part of the fixed value data described above, the first random number table 202a, the first type selection table 202b, and the second random number table 202c. , And a variation pattern selection table 202d are stored.

  The first hit random number table 202a is a data table in which the jackpot determination value of the first hit random number counter C5 updated periodically (for example, every 2 msec) is stored. When the value of the first per-random number counter C5 acquired based on the start winning matches with any one of the determination values defined in the first per-random number table 202a, it is determined that the special symbol is a big hit.

  The first hit type selection table 202b (refer to FIG. 14B) is a data table in which the determination value for determining the big hit type is stored, and the determination value of the first hit type counter C4 corresponds to each big hit type , And is specified in association with the type of winning opening that became the lottery trigger of the special symbol. In the pachinko machine 10 of the present embodiment, when it is determined that the special symbol is a big hit, the value of the first hit type counter C4 acquired based on the start winning is compared with the first hit type selection table 202b, and the first hit type selection table 202b is compared. A jackpot type corresponding to the value of the hit type counter C4 is selected.

  Specifically, if the special symbol 1 lottery (the lottery based on the entrance to the first winning port 64) is a big win, the value of the first hit type counter C4 is in the range of “0 to 19”. Is defined in association with jackpot A (see 202b1 in FIG. 14B).

  When the jackpot is A, 10 rounds of jackpot game are executed. In this case, the player can receive about 1500 prize balls.

  In the range where the value of the first hit type counter C4 is “20 to 49”, the big hit B is associated and defined (see 202b2 in FIG. 14B).

  When the jackpot B is reached, a six-round jackpot game is executed. In this case, the player can receive about 900 prize balls.

  In the range where the value of the first hit type counter C4 is “50 to 99”, the big hit C is associated and defined (see 202b3 in FIG. 14B).

  When the jackpot C is reached, a four-round jackpot game is executed. In this case, the player can receive about 600 prize balls.

  As described above, if the special symbol 1 lottery (lottery based on entering the first winning opening 64) becomes a big hit, the difference in the number of prize balls paid out by the player appears as a difference due to the number of rounds As the number increases, the number of winning balls in the payout increases, and the time taken for the jackpot game also increases.

  The jackpot based on the special symbol 1 lottery (the lottery based on the entrance to the first winning slot 64) can win 10 rounds with a 20% probability, but it has a 50% chance to win 4 rounds. Basically, you can't expect a lot of prize balls. On the other hand, the 4-round jackpot game is completed in a shorter time compared to the 15-round jackpot game, so that it is possible to start launching a ball for the subsequent jackpot acquisition early.

  On the other hand, when it becomes a big hit in the lottery of special symbol 2 (lottery based on entering the second winning opening 640), the value of the first hit type counter C4 is a big hit in the range of "0 to 79" a is associated and defined (see 202b4 in FIG. 14B).

  When the jackpot is a, 15 rounds of jackpot game are executed. In this case, the player can receive approximately 2250 award balls (maximum payout).

  In the range where the value of the first hit type counter C4 is “80 to 89”, the big hit b is associated and defined (see 202b5 in FIG. 14B).

  In the case of the jackpot b, as in the case of the jackpot A, the jackpot game of 10 rounds is executed. In this case, the player can receive about 1500 prize balls.

  In the range where the value of the first hit type counter C4 is “90 to 99”, the big hit c is associated and defined (see 202b6 in FIG. 14B).

  When the jackpot c is reached, an eight-round jackpot game is executed. In this case, the player can receive about 1200 prize balls.

  As described above, the jackpot that occurs in the drawing of the special symbol 2 (lottery based on entering the second winning opening 640) is the jackpot a (the jackpot of the maximum payout) with a probability of 80%. Therefore, compared with the expected number of payouts when the special symbol 1 wins the lottery, the expected payout number can be increased when the special symbol 2 wins the lottery.

  As described above, during the probability change of the special symbol, the probability of hitting the normal symbol is increased, the fluctuation time of the normal symbol is shortened (3 seconds), and the opening time of the electric accessory 640a when hitting the normal symbol is reached. It is set to be long (1 second × 2 times). Therefore, since it becomes easy to make the ball enter the second winning opening 640, the lottery of the special symbol 2 becomes easy to be performed. Therefore, once it is possible to shift to the special symbol's definite variation state, the special symbol's definite variation state of the special symbol that is likely to be the big hit of the special symbol and likely to be the big hit a (maximum hit ball) when the big hit is repeated is repeated. Since it becomes easy, it becomes easy for a player to acquire a lot of prize balls. As a result, since it is possible to play the game while strongly expecting the player to shift to the definite variation state of the special symbol, it is possible to improve the interest of the player in the game.

  The second hit random number table 202c (see FIG. 14 (c)) is a data table in which hit determination values of ordinary symbols are stored. Specifically, in the normal state of the normal symbol, “5 to 28” is defined as a determination value that is a hit of the normal symbol (see 202c1 in FIG. 14C). Further, “5 to 204” is defined as a determination value that is a hit of the normal symbol in the high probability state of the normal symbol (see 202c2 in FIG. 14C). In the pachinko machine 10 of the present embodiment, the second per random number counter C5 value obtained based on the passage of the ball through the through gate 67 and the second per random number table 202c are referred to, and the per symbol is selected. It is determined whether or not there is. The fluctuation pattern selection table 202d is a data table in which the determination value of the fluctuation type counter for determining the display pattern of the fluctuation pattern is defined for each display pattern.

  Next, a second embodiment will be described with reference to FIGS. 15 to 28. In the first embodiment, the case has been described where the internal shape of the channel through which the gaming ball having passed the front side of the movable upper lid member flows down remains unchanged, but the lower panel unit 2300 in the second embodiment is the movable upper lid A movable effect member 2360 is provided that operates in the inside of the flow path where the gaming ball having passed the front side of the member 332 flows down. In addition, the same code | symbol is attached | subjected to the part same as each embodiment mentioned above, and the description is abbreviate | omitted.

  15 and 16 are front exploded perspective views of the gaming board 13 and the board lower unit 2300 in the second embodiment, and FIG. 17 is an exploded rear perspective view of the gaming board 13 and the board lower unit 2300.

  Note that FIG. 15 shows that only the front plate member 2320 is disassembled from the game board 13, and in FIGS. 16 and 17, the front unit 310 and the variable winning device 2330 of the lower board unit 2300 are further The state disassembled from the board 13 is illustrated. For ease of understanding, the game board 13 is illustrated as an opening by omitting the center frame 86 (see FIG. 2) and the block members that form the flow surface at the lower left and right sides. It is illustrated in a simplified manner with only 60 left.

  As shown in FIG. 15, a specific winning opening 65 a is formed along the lower edge of the inner rail 61. Since the lower edge of the inner rail 61 is formed of a curved shape convex downward, the arrangement position of the specific winning opening 65a is compared to the case where the lower side of the specific winning opening 65a is formed by a straight line along the left and right direction. Can be lowered downward. The outer edge of the specific winning opening 65a is formed with the upper side by the movable upper lid member 332 (see FIG. 16) and the lower side by the lower edge of the inner rail 61, and the left and right sides are the left and right walls of the open upper portion 313. It is formed with a part.

  As will be described later, the specific winning opening 65a is switched between the above-mentioned closed state and open state by the sliding movement of the movable upper cover member 332 back and forth, and the opening / closing operation of the specific winning opening 65a is, for example, 15 It is possible to repeat once (15 rounds).

  As shown in FIGS. 16 and 17, the board lower unit 2300 is a unit that constitutes an out port 314 through which a ball is discharged and a specific winning port 65a (see FIG. 15). A front unit 310 that is fitted from the front side into a receiving opening 60a drilled in the front-rear direction and fastened and fixed, and a front plate that is fastened and fixed to the front unit 310 from the front side and has a spherical path formed on the back side. It mainly includes a member 2320 and a variable winning device 2330 including a moving upper lid member 332 that is fitted into the receiving opening 60a from the back side and fastened and fixed and changes the flow direction of the ball.

  The front unit 310 maintains the configuration described above in the first embodiment, although the design changes are made in response to the design changes of the front plate member 2320 and the variable winning device 2330. Since the characteristic part of each structure is the same, the same code | symbol as 1st Embodiment is attached | subjected and description is abbreviate | omitted.

  In this embodiment, the vertical width of the left and right walls of the opening upper portion 313 (corresponding to the left and right walls of the specific winning opening 65a) is set to be equal to or larger than the diameter of the game ball. Is done.

  The out ports 314 are formed as a pair on the left and right sides of the upper opening portion 313, and the lower side of the out ports 314 is disposed below the upper left and right corners of the upper opening portion 313, as in the first embodiment. On the other hand, unlike the first embodiment, the upper side of the out port 314 is disposed below.

  The front plate member 2320 is a plate-like member formed from a light-transmitting resin material, and includes the main body plate portion 321, the first winning opening front portion 322, and the electric accessory support portion described above in the first embodiment. H.323 and a ball feed portion 325, and as a difference from the first embodiment, an out-port lower plate 2324 disposed along the lower surface of the out-port 314.

  A thin rib extending in the front-rear direction is continuously provided in the left-right direction on the upper side surface of the out-hole lower plate 2324. In addition, the out-hole lower plate 2324 includes a step portion 2324 a that protrudes upward at the left and right inner end portions. The unevenness formed on the upper side surface of the out-port lower plate 2324 can decelerate the ball that has flowed down. Further, the rib formed on the out-port lower plate 2324 is formed to be inclined downward as it goes to the back side. Thereby, the ball that has flowed down can be quickly discharged to the out port 314.

  Since the inclined plate portion 312 described above is formed directly above the out-out lower plate 2324 (see FIG. 27), the ball that falls after rolling the inclined plate portion 312 faces the out-out lower plate 2324. Falling is suppressed. That is, a ball that falls after rolling on the inclined plate portion 312 falls on the inner side in the left-right direction of the pair of out-out lower plates 2324 (position where the moving upper lid member 332 is disposed), or on the out-out lower plate 2324. It falls either on the outer end (in the vicinity of the ball-sinking rib 321a and at the boundary between the formation area of the rib and the rail through which the ball flows). These are both outside the rib forming range. As a result, it is possible to prevent the ball from falling to the out-of-mouth lower plate 2324 from a high place, and the durability of the out-of-mouth lower plate 2324 can be improved.

  The stepped portion 2324a has a vertical width longer than that of the stepped portion 324a of the first embodiment (equal to or greater than the diameter of the game ball), and is formed between the out port 314 and the specified winning port 65a (see FIG. 15). The sphere that flows down from the left and right direction and flows down the upper side surface of the lower bottom plate 2324 is prevented from flowing down to the center in the left and right direction beyond the step 2324a (see FIG. 27). ). That is, the balls flowing down from the left and right direction and flowing down the upper side surface of the out-hole lower plate 2324 are guided exclusively to the out-port 314.

  Next, the variable winning device 2330 will be described with reference to FIGS. FIG. 18 is a front exploded perspective view of the variable winning device 2330, FIG. 19 is a rear exploded perspective view of the variable winning device 2330, and FIG. 20 (a) is a top view of the variable winning device 2330. 20 (b) is a front view of the variable winning device 2330, and FIG. 20 (c) is a side view of the variable winning device 2330 as viewed in the direction of the arrow XXc in FIG. 20 (b). 18 to 20 illustrate the tilted state of the movable effect member 2360.

  As shown in FIGS. 18 to 20, the variable winning device 2330 includes a main body member 2331 forming a skeleton, and a movable upper lid member 332 which is inserted from the front into the main body member 2331 and is slidable in the front and rear direction.

  The main body member 2331 comprises a main body front portion 2331F constituting a front portion of a flow path through which the gaming ball having passed the sensor S flows, and left and right side portions and a back surface portion of the flow path through which the gaming ball having passed the sensor S flows And a main body rear portion 2331B. In the present embodiment, the illustration of the light irradiation device 331c (see FIG. 8) described above in the first embodiment is omitted.

  The main body front portion 2331F includes a front opening 331a1 of the deformed through hole 331a through which the movable upper lid member 332 is inserted, and a lower passage 331b in which a ball entering the specified winning hole 65a (see FIG. 15) flows down.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 18, the main body front portion 2331F includes an extended floor portion 2331e that extends in a plate shape from the upper end of the lower passage 331b to the left and right sides, and an extended end of the extended floor portion 2331e. An extending wall portion 2331f extending upward, and a pair of left and right supporting wall portions 2331g whose front end is disposed on the front side relative to the front end of the extending wall portion 2331f on the left and right outside of the extending wall portion 2331f; A concave support portion 2331h that is recessed from the front side to the back side and configured to pivotally support the movable effect member 2360 is mainly provided on the inner side surface of the pair of support wall portions 2331g.

  The extended floor portion 2331e has a front end portion disposed below the movable effect member 2360 (see FIG. 20B) and is configured to be inclined downward toward the lower passage 331b in the left-right direction. Therefore, when a game ball rides on the extended floor portion 2331e by rolling on the upper surface of the tilted movable effect member 2360, the game ball rolls toward the lower passage 331b along the inclination of the extended floor portion 2331e. Can be made.

  The extension wall portion 2331f is disposed with a slight gap between itself and the support wall portion 2331g. This gap is sized to allow the sliding portion 2363 of the movable effect member 2360 described later to enter, and is for suppressing the positional deviation of the movable effect member 2360 while the sliding portion 2363 enters the gap. is there. That is, the posture deviation of the movable effect member 2360 can be suppressed by the extending wall portion 2331f.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 19, the main body front portion 2331F extends in the form of a plate up and down at a position slightly longer than the left and right width of the first transmission member 2340 from the inner surface Ins of the wall portion constituting the left side surface. A first transmission support portion 2331i that is provided, and a pair of second transmission support portions 2331j that are recessed toward the front side in a manner to pivotally support the second transmission member 2350 at the rear side end portion. Is provided.

  The first transmission support portion 2331i functions as a portion that guides the movement of the first transmission member 2340 disposed between the first transmission support portion 2331i and the inner surface Ins of the wall portion (regulates the movement direction). That is, the first transmission support portion 2331i is disposed between the inner surface Ins and at a distance slightly longer than the lateral width direction of the first transmission member 2340. Thereby, the movement of the first transmission member 2340 in the lateral direction is restricted, and the movement in the vertical direction is permitted.

  The second transmission support portion 2331 j is a portion for pivotally supporting a supported projection 2352 formed at the rear end portion (one end portion) of the second transmission member 2350. Therefore, the front end portion (the other end portion) of the second transmission member 2350 is disposed in front of the second transmission support portion 2331 j.

  The main body rear portion 2331 B is a rear opening portion 331 a 2 of the deformed through hole 331 a through which the movable upper lid member 332 is inserted, and a recess formed concave on the back side toward the front side. The solenoid 2333 and the lever member 334 b etc. And a back side housing portion 2331d.

  The back side accommodation portion 2331 d is formed in a shape that can dispose the claw portion 2333 c of the solenoid 2333 inside (the shape bulging leftward).

  Further, as shown in FIG. 18 and FIG. 19, the main body rear portion 2331B is drilled in the front-rear direction with a horizontal width slightly wider than the horizontal width of the claw portion 2333c of the solenoid 2333 and can guide vertical movement of the claw portion 2333c A long hole portion 2331s extending in the vertical direction, and a recessed portion 2331t recessed from the front side surface to the back side above the long hole portion 2331s.

  The recessed portion 2331t is arranged to face the second transmission support portion 2331j in the assembled state in the front-rear direction, and is slightly larger than the radius of the proximal cylindrical portion 2351 formed at the rear end portion (one end portion) of the second transmission member 2350. It is recessed by a radius of curvature (an arc shape centered on the central axis of the supported protrusion 2352).

  Accordingly, when the second transmission member 2350 is pivotally supported in the shaft hole portion formed by covering the second transmission support portion 2331j on the front side surface of the main body rear portion 2331B, the rear end portion of the second transmission member 2350 The proximal end cylindrical portion 2351 of the (one end portion) and the recessed portion 2331 t can be maintained in an equidistant state at a predetermined angle.

  In this case, for example, when the second transmission member 2350 rotates, the rotation axis is shifted, and the rear end portion (one end portion) of the second transmission member 2350 is rubbed against the recessed portion 2331t. Since it can be rubbed in contact with the surface, wear of the second transmission member 2350 can be delayed, or damage to the second transmission member 2350 can be suppressed.

  The solenoid 2333 is disposed below the main body portion 333a and the main body portion 333a that generates an upward driving force by passing an electric current, and is normally disposed at the lower end position below the lever member 334b by a biasing spring. A bowl-shaped bowl-shaped member 333b that rises to the upper end position by the driving force of the body part 333a, and the bowl-shaped member 333b are extended leftward from a base end (upper part) connected to the body part 2333a. And a bent bar-like claw portion 2333c extending forward.

  The claw portion 2333 c is formed in a shape that is tapered toward the front end, and in the assembled state (see, for example, FIG. 20), the claw portion 2333 c is inserted into the long hole portion 2331 s from the back side. Then, the front end of the long hole 2331 s is inserted into the inserted portion 2343 of the first transmission member 2340 from the rear side. Since the claw portion 2333c has a tapered shape, it can be easily inserted.

  The first transmission member 2340 is a member housed between the inner surface Ins and the first transmission support portion 2331i in the assembled state (for example, see FIG. 20), and a plate-like portion 2341 that forms the left side surface, A projecting portion 2342 projecting rightward in the form of a block from the middle portion of the plate-shaped portion 2341, a inserted portion 2343 recessed toward the front side on the rear side surface of the projecting portion 2342, and a projecting portion 2342, a lower extending plate portion 2344 extending downward so as to have a plate shape having a front side surface and a surface position surface and a left side surface and a surface position surface, and a left side from the upper right side surface of the plate portion 2341 And a protrusion 2345 that protrudes in a cylindrical shape.

  The plate-like portion 2341 has a long plate-like main body portion 2341a that is long in the vertical direction, an upper front overhang portion 2341b that projects to the front side with the same thickness at the upper portion of the main body portion 2341a, and the same thickness at the lower portion of the main body portion 2341a. And a lower rear projecting portion 2341c projecting to the rear side.

  The inserted portion 2343 is a concave portion into which the claw portion 2333c of the solenoid 2333 is inserted, and the recess width (upper and lower, right and left) and the recess depth are formed in a shape in which the claw portion 2333c of the solenoid 2333 can be inserted. . That is, the claws 2333 c are formed in a shape that can be fitted to the insertion portion 2343. As described above, the claw portion 2333c has a tapered shape (tapered shape), so that the claw portion 2333c can be easily inserted into the insertion portion 2343.

  By inserting the protrusion 2345 into the second transmission member 2350, the first transmission member 2340 and the second transmission member 2350 are connected. Here, the term "connection" does not only refer to structurally connecting, but also refers to operative connection (following operation, synchronous operation, etc.). That is, the second transmission member 2350 rotates as the first transmission member 2340 moves up and down.

  The second transmission member 2350 is a member that is rotatably supported by the second transmission support portion 2331j of the main body front portion 2331F, and has a cylindrical base end cylindrical portion 2351 having a horizontal axis at the rear end portion, and A pair of pivot support protrusions 2352 protruding in the left-right direction in a columnar shape with a small coaxial diameter with respect to the base end cylindrical portion 2351, and extending in a rod shape toward the front along the left end of the base end cylindrical portion 2351. Extending rod-shaped portion 2353 and a through hole 2354 which is formed in the middle of the extending rod-shaped portion 2353 along the longitudinal direction of the extending rod-shaped portion 2353 and elongated in the shape of a long hole. Prepare for.

  The axial direction (left and right direction) length of the proximal end cylindrical portion 2351 is slightly shorter than the distance (left and right distance) between the second transmission support portions 2331 j.

  The protrusion length of the supported protrusion 2352 is equal to the thickness of the second transmission support 2331 j, and the diameter of the supported protrusion 2352 is equal to the recessed width (upper and lower width) of the second transfer support 2331 j. Is also s
