  The pachinko gaming machine 10 includes a magnetic sensor as magnetic detection means for detecting magnetism. The pachinko gaming machine 10 of the present embodiment includes three magnetic sensors, a first magnetic sensor ZS1, a second magnetic sensor ZS2, and a third magnetic sensor ZS3. In the present embodiment, the magnetic sensors ZS1 to ZS3 are disposed on the back side of the game board 20. Further, when the magnetic sensor is disposed on the back side of the game board 20, a magnet or the like that is brought close to the game board 20 by being disposed in the vicinity of a plate material (for example, a veneer board or an acrylic board) constituting the game board 20. It is easy to detect magnetism. For example, when the magnetic sensor is disposed on the back side of the game board 20 and the magnetic sensor is disposed directly on the plate material constituting the game board 20, the magnetic sensor is disposed at a predetermined distance from the plate material constituting the game board 20. It becomes easier to detect the magnetism on the front side of the game board 20 as compared with the case where the sensor is arranged. Note that some or all of the magnetic sensors ZS1 to ZS3 do not need to be disposed on the back side of the game board 20, and may be disposed on the front side of the game board 20. When the magnetic sensor is disposed on the front side of the game board 20, for example, the magnetic sensor may be covered with a decorative member so that the magnetic sensor cannot be visually recognized by the player (or difficult to visually recognize). By providing the magnetic sensor on the back side of the game board 20 or by covering the magnetic sensor with a decorative member, it is difficult to specify the position where the magnetic sensor is disposed, so that fraudulent acts using magnetism can be suppressed. it can. Further, by providing the magnetic sensor on the back side of the game board 20 or covering the magnetic sensor with a decorative member, the magnetic sensor is hardly exposed to the front side of the pachinko gaming machine 10 and the appearance is improved.

  The first magnetic sensor ZS1 is disposed on the back side of the game board 20 and on the back side of the first start port 26. As described above, by arranging the first magnetic sensor ZS1 at a position on the back side of the first start port 26, the first magnetic sensor ZS1 causes magnetism in the vicinity of the first start port 26 (for example, to the first start port 26). Magnetism when a magnet is brought close to the magnet can be detected. The first magnetic sensor ZS1 may be disposed indirectly instead of directly on the back side of the game board 20, for example, a first start port configured to include the first start port 26. You may arrange | position to a unit.

  The second magnetic sensor ZS <b> 2 is disposed on the back side of the game board 20 and on the back side of the second start port 27. As described above, by arranging the second magnetic sensor ZS2 at the position on the back side of the second start port 27, the second magnetic sensor ZS2 causes magnetism in the vicinity of the second start port 27 (for example, to the second start port 27). Magnetism when a magnet is brought close to the magnet can be detected. Note that the second magnetic sensor ZS2 may be disposed indirectly rather than directly on the back side of the game board 20, for example, a second starting port configured to include the second starting port 27. You may arrange | position to a unit.

  The third magnetic sensor ZS3 is disposed on the back side of the game board 20 and on the back side of the special winning opening 29. In this way, by arranging the third magnetic sensor ZS3 at the position on the back side of the big prize opening 29, magnetism near the big prize opening 29 (for example, the magnet approaches the big prize opening 29 by the third magnetic sensor ZS3). Can be detected. Note that the third magnetic sensor ZS3 may be disposed indirectly rather than directly on the back side of the game board 20, for example, in a large winning opening unit configured to include the large winning opening 29. It may be arranged.

Next, the gaming state of the pachinko gaming machine 10 will be described.
The pachinko gaming machine 10 includes a low probability state and a high probability state as gaming states with different jackpot probabilities. The big hit probability is a probability of winning a big hit in the internal lottery (big hit lottery). The high probability state is a gaming state in which the jackpot probability is higher than the low probability state. In the high probability state, the possibility of winning a big hit is increased as compared to the low probability state, so that the gaming state is advantageous to the player. The high probability state is a so-called “probability variation state (probability variation state)”.

  The pachinko gaming machine 10 includes a low base state and a high base state as game states in which the ratio of the number of prize balls to the number of game balls fired is different. The high base state is a gaming state in which the probability that a game ball enters the second start port 27 is higher than that in the low base state. The high base state is a so-called “electric support state”, and the low base state is a so-called “non-power support state”. In the high base state, since the probability that the game ball enters the second start port 27 is increased, the game state is advantageous to the player.

  For example, the high base state can be realized by performing one control arbitrarily selected from the following three controls described below, or by combining a plurality of controls. The first control is normal symbol variation time shortening control in which the variation time of the normal game is shorter than that in the low base state. The second control is probability variation control of a normal symbol in which the probability of winning the normal winning lottery (ordinary winning probability) is changed with a higher probability than in the low base state. The third control is open time extension control in which the total open time of the first variable member 28 in one normal game is longer than that in the low base state. As the opening time extension control, the number of times the first variable member 28 is released in one normal hit game is larger than that in the low base state, and the first variable member 28 is once in the normal hit game. It is preferable to perform at least one of the controls for making the opening time of the battery longer than that in the low base state. Further, the high base state may be realized by combining the fourth control described below. The fourth control is special symbol variation time shortening control that makes the variation time (for example, average variation time) of the special game shorter than that in the low base state. When the special symbol variation time reduction control is performed, the high base state is a so-called “variation time reduction state”.

Next, the big hit in the pachinko gaming machine 10 will be described.
The pachinko gaming machine 10 of the present embodiment includes a plurality of types of jackpot symbols as special symbol jackpot symbols. The plurality of types of jackpot symbols are classified into a first jackpot symbol and a second jackpot symbol. The types of jackpots are determined for each type of jackpot symbol, and there are multiple types of jackpots. A plurality of types of jackpot symbols may have a gaming state after the jackpot game ends.

  In the big hit game, first, an opening effect for notifying the start of the big hit game is performed over a predetermined opening period. In the big hit game, a round game in which the big prize opening 29 is opened after the opening effect is finished. A round game is played with a predetermined upper limit number of times as an upper limit. In one round game, the grand prize opening 29 is until the first end condition for entering a predetermined upper limit number of game balls or the second end condition for elapse of a predetermined upper limit time is satisfied. Opened. In the round game, a round effect is performed. In the big hit game, when the final round game is finished, an ending effect for notifying the end of the big hit game is performed over a predetermined ending period. The big hit game is ended with the end of the ending effect.

  A jackpot game with an upper limit of 10 round games is defined for the jackpot symbol classified as the first jackpot symbol and the jackpot symbol classified as the second jackpot symbol. In addition, the jackpot symbol classified as the first jackpot symbol is given the high probability state until the next jackpot game is given and the next jackpot game as the gaming state after the jackpot game ends. The high base state until it is set is determined. On the other hand, in the big hit symbol classified as the second big hit symbol, a low probability state and a predetermined upper limit number of times (for example, 100 times) special games are ended as game states to be given after the big hit game ends. Or a high base state until a jackpot game is awarded before the upper limit number of special games is finished.

  In the present embodiment, from the viewpoint of whether or not a high probability state is given, the advantage is a relationship of “second jackpot symbol <first jackpot symbol”. From the viewpoint of whether the number of special games to which the high base state is given is large or small, the advantage is a relationship of “second big hit symbol <first big hit symbol”. Therefore, the first jackpot symbol can be said to be an advantageous jackpot symbol as compared with the second jackpot symbol because the number of special games to which the high base state is given is large and a high probability state is given.

  In the following description, the jackpot game based on the jackpot symbol classified as the first jackpot symbol is “first jackpot game”, and the jackpot game based on the jackpot symbol classified as the second jackpot symbol is “second jackpot game”. May be shown. Also, the type of jackpot corresponding to the first jackpot game may be indicated as “first jackpot”, and the type of jackpot corresponding to the second jackpot game may be indicated as “second jackpot”.

There is a symbol variation game (hereinafter referred to as “production game”). The effect design is a design provided with decorations such as characters and patterns, and is used to diversify display effects, and is also referred to as “decoration design” or “decoration design”. In the present embodiment, the effect game is performed by changing and displaying the first, second, and third rows of symbol rows in a vertical direction (scroll display). The effect design in the first row is the so-called first design, the effect design in the second row is the so-called second design, and the effect design in the third row is the so-called third design.

  The production game is played in conjunction with the special game. Specifically, the effect game is started with the start of the special game, and is ended with the end of the special game. In the effect game, a combination of effect symbols corresponding to the special symbols derived in the special game is derived. When the big hit symbol is derived in the special game, the big hit symbol based on the effect symbol is derived in the effect game. For example, the jackpot symbol based on the effect symbol is a symbol combination in which the effect symbols in all the rows are the same, such as “333” and “777”. In the special game, when the off symbol is derived, the off symbol based on the effect symbol is derived in the effect game. For example, the out-of-order symbols based on the effect symbols are a combination of symbols such as “323”, “556”, [426], etc., where the effect symbols in at least some columns are different from the effect symbols in other columns. In the effect game, the effect symbol may be temporarily stopped before the effect symbol is confirmed and stopped. In the present specification, “temporary stop display” means a state indicating that there is a possibility that the symbol is variably displayed again, such as “sway fluctuation state”.

  An effect game may include a reach effect performed by forming a reach. In the reach, the same effect design is temporarily stopped and displayed in a specific column (in this embodiment, the first column and the third column) among a plurality of columns, and a column (in this embodiment, different from the specific column) , The second column) is a state in which the effect symbols are continuously displayed in a variable manner. For example, in the reach effect, there may be a plurality of types of reach effects in which the characters to appear and the actions of the effect symbols are different.

For example, the random number may be generated as a hardware random number by mounting a random number generation circuit that updates the value of the random number at a predetermined cycle on the sub-board 50, and the sub-control CPU 50a performs the control at every predetermined control cycle. A software random number may be generated by updating the value of the random number.

  The contents of control executed by the main control CPU 40a of the main board 40 and the sub control CPU 50a of the sub board 50 will be described below. First, various processes executed by the main control CPU 40a of the main board 40 based on the control program will be described.

First, a special symbol input process performed by the main control CPU 40a will be described.
The main control CPU 40a determines whether or not a game ball has entered the first start port 26 based on whether or not a detection signal from the first start sensor SE1 has been input (hereinafter referred to as first input determination). . When the determination result of the first input determination is affirmative, the main control CPU 40a determines whether the first special hold number stored in the main control RAM 40c is less than the upper limit number (4 in the present embodiment). (Hereinafter referred to as first hold determination). If the determination result of the first hold determination is affirmative, the main control CPU 40a adds 1 to the first special hold number and updates it. Further, the main control CPU 40a controls the information display panel 22 of the information board 43 so as to display the updated first special hold number. Further, the main control CPU 40a stores control information (hereinafter referred to as a first hold number command) that can specify the updated first special hold number in the output buffer. In the present embodiment, the control information (command) stored in the output buffer is output to the sub-board 50 in the subsequent interrupt processing.

  When the determination result of the first hold determination is affirmative, the main control CPU 40a acquires a random number generated in the main board 40 and stores random number information based on the acquired random number in the main control RAM 40c. At this time, the main control CPU 40a stores the random number information for the first special game and the storage order of the random number information so that it can be specified. In the present embodiment, the random number information for the first special game is stored in the main control RAM 40c, so that the execution is suspended until the execution condition for the first special game is satisfied. The random number information may be the acquired random number itself or information obtained by processing the random number by a predetermined method. For example, the random number is a random number used for the big hit lottery, a random number used for determining the big hit symbol, a random number used for determining the fluctuation pattern, or the like.

  Further, when the determination result of the first input determination is negative, when the determination result of the first hold determination is negative, and after the random number information for the first special game is stored in the main control RAM 40c, the main control use The CPU 40a determines whether or not a game ball has entered the second start port 27 based on whether or not a detection signal from the second start sensor SE2 is input (hereinafter referred to as a second input determination). When the determination result of the second input determination is negative, the main control CPU 40a ends the special symbol input process.

  On the other hand, if the determination result of the second input determination is affirmative, the main control CPU 40a determines whether the second special hold number stored in the main control RAM 40c is less than the upper limit number (4 in the present embodiment). Determination (hereinafter referred to as second hold determination). When the determination result of the second hold determination is negative, the main control CPU 40a ends the special symbol input process.

  If the determination result of the second hold determination is affirmative, the main control CPU 40a adds 1 to the second special hold number and updates it. Further, the main control CPU 40a controls the information display panel 22 of the information board 43 so as to display the updated second special hold number. Further, the main control CPU 40a stores control information (hereinafter referred to as a second hold number command) that can specify the updated second special hold number in the output buffer.

  When the determination result of the second hold determination is affirmative, the main control CPU 40a acquires a random number generated in the main board 40, stores random number information based on the acquired random number in the main control RAM 40c, The special symbol input process is terminated. At this time, the main control CPU 40a stores the random number information for the second special game so that the storage order of the random number information can be specified. In the present embodiment, random number information for the second special game is stored in the main control RAM 40c, so that the execution is suspended until the execution condition for the second special game is satisfied.

Next, a special symbol start process performed by the main control CPU 40a will be described.
The main control CPU 40a determines whether an execution condition for the special game is satisfied (hereinafter referred to as execution determination). In the execution determination, the main control CPU 40a makes an affirmative determination when the jackpot game is not being played and the special game is not being played, whereas the negative determination is made when the jackpot game or the special game is being played. When the determination result of the execution determination is negative (when the execution condition for the special game is not satisfied), the main control CPU 40a ends the special symbol start process.

  On the other hand, when the determination result of the execution determination is affirmative (when the special game execution condition is satisfied), the main control CPU 40a has the second special hold number stored in the main control RAM 40c being 1 or more. Determine whether. When the second special reservation number is 1 or more, the main control CPU 40a performs the first special symbol start process related to the execution of the first special game, and then ends the special symbol start process. On the other hand, when the second special hold number is not 1 or more, the main control CPU 40a determines whether or not the first special hold number stored in the main control RAM 40c is 1 or more. When the first special hold number is not 1 or more, the main control CPU 40a ends the special symbol start process. On the other hand, when the first special hold number is 1 or more, the main control CPU 40a performs the second special symbol start process related to the execution of the second special game, and then ends the special symbol start process.

  In the first special symbol start process, the main control CPU 40a updates the first special hold number stored in the main control RAM 40c by subtracting one. Further, the main control CPU 40a controls the information display panel 22 so that the updated first special hold number is displayed. Further, the main control CPU 40a stores in the output buffer a first hold number command that can specify the updated first special hold number.

  Subsequently, the main control CPU 40a reads the random number information stored first among the random number information for the first special game from the main control RAM 40c. When the main control CPU 40a reads the earliest random number information, the main control CPU 40a erases the earliest stored random number information from the main control RAM 40c. Then, the main control CPU 40a determines whether or not to win the jackpot based on the read random number information and the jackpot determination value stored in the main control ROM 40b. This process corresponds to a big hit lottery (big hit determination) of whether or not the big hit. For example, the determination of whether or not to win the jackpot may be made based on whether or not the value of the random number information matches the jackpot determination value. For example, whether or not to win a jackpot may be determined based on whether or not the value obtained by adding the value of the random number information and the jackpot determination value exceeds a predetermined value.

  In the case of winning a big win, the main control CPU 40a determines a big win symbol derived in the first special game and a variation pattern of the first special game. For example, the main control CPU 40a may determine the big hit symbol or the variation pattern by lottery using the read random number information. Thereafter, the main control CPU 40a stores in the output buffer control information (hereinafter referred to as symbol command) that can identify the determined jackpot symbol and control information (hereinafter referred to as variation pattern designation command) that can identify the variation pattern. Then, the first special symbol start process is terminated.

  In the second special symbol start process, the main control CPU 40a updates the second special hold number stored in the main control RAM 40c by subtracting one. Further, the main control CPU 40a controls the information display panel 22 so that the updated second special hold number is displayed. Further, the main control CPU 40a stores in the output buffer a second hold number command that can specify the updated second special hold number.

  Subsequently, the main control CPU 40a reads the random number information stored first among the random number information for the second special game from the main control RAM 40c. When the main control CPU 40a reads the earliest random number information, the main control CPU 40a erases the earliest stored random number information from the main control RAM 40c. Then, the main control CPU 40a determines whether or not to win the jackpot based on the read random number information and the jackpot determination value stored in the main control ROM 40b. This process corresponds to a big hit lottery (big hit determination) of whether or not the big hit. When winning a big hit, the main control CPU 40a determines a big hit symbol to be derived in the second special game and a variation pattern of the second special game. For example, the main control CPU 40a may determine the big hit symbol or the variation pattern by lottery using the read random number information. Thereafter, the main control CPU 40a stores the symbol command and the variation pattern designation command in the output buffer, and ends the second special symbol start process.

  When the special symbol start process is finished, the main control CPU 40a performs a process different from the special symbol start process to execute a special game. Specifically, the main control CPU 40a controls the information display panel 22 so that the special game is started. The main control CPU 40a measures the variation time associated with the variation pattern determined in the special symbol start process. The main control CPU 40a then controls the information display panel 22 so that the special symbol determined in the special symbol start process is derived when the variation time associated with the variation pattern has elapsed. Further, when the variation time associated with the variation pattern determined in the special symbol start process elapses, the main control CPU 40a instructs to stop the variation of the effect symbols, and outputs a game end command for deriving the symbol combination. To store.

Next, the jackpot process performed by the main control CPU 40a will be described.
In the jackpot process, the main control CPU 40a specifies the type of the jackpot game based on the jackpot symbol (that is, the type of jackpot) determined in the special symbol start process. Then, the main control CPU 40a starts control for giving the specified jackpot game after the end of the jackpot special game. Therefore, the main control CPU 40a gives a big hit game by executing the big hit processing. Thus, in the pachinko gaming machine 10 of the present embodiment, the big hit game is given after winning the big hit.

  When the big hit special game ends, the main control CPU 40a stores the opening command in the output buffer. The main control CPU 40a counts the opening time when the opening command is stored in the output buffer. Further, the main control CPU 40a performs processing for executing a round game when the opening time has elapsed. That is, the main control CPU 40a controls the actuator to open the big winning opening 29 according to the release mode (open pattern) set to the big hit game, and starts the round game. When the first end condition or the second end condition is satisfied after starting the round game, the main control CPU 40a controls the actuator so that the special winning opening 29 is closed, and ends the round game. The main control CPU 40a repeatedly performs the process for executing the round game until the upper limit number of round games determined for the big hit game is completed. The main control CPU 40a stores a round command in the output buffer every time a round game is started. Incidentally, even during the same type of big hit game, the main control CPU 40a stores different round commands for each round game in the output buffer. For example, the round command output with the start of the first round game is different from the round command output with the start of the second round game.

  The main control CPU 40a stores the ending command in the output buffer when the final round game is completed. Further, when the ending command is stored in the output buffer, the main control CPU 40a measures the ending time. Then, when the ending time has elapsed, the main control CPU 40a ends the jackpot game.

Next, game state processing performed by the main control CPU 40a will be described.
The main control CPU 40a specifies the gaming state to be given after the big hit game is ended based on the big hit symbol (that is, the type of the big hit) determined in the special symbol start process. When the main control CPU 40a specifies the provision of the low probability state, the probability state flag stored in the main control RAM 40c is a value that can be specified to control the low probability state when the jackpot game is ended. Set to. When the main control CPU 40a specifies the provision of the high probability state, the main control CPU 40a sets, in the probability state flag, a value that can be specified to control the high probability state when the jackpot game is ended.

  When the high control state is specified, the main control CPU 40a sets, in the base state flag, a value that can be specified to control the high control state when the big hit game is finished. Further, the main control CPU 40a stores control information (hereinafter referred to as “high base state command”) that can specify the high base state in the output buffer. When the main control CPU 40a specifies the provision of the high base state in which the upper limit number is determined, the main control CPU 40a stores the number of times corresponding to the upper limit number in the main control RAM 40c as the remaining number of times of the special game to which the high base state is provided.

  Each time the special game is executed, the main control CPU 40a subtracts 1 from the remaining number of times stored in the main control RAM 40c. When the remaining number of times becomes zero, the main control CPU 40a sets, in the base state flag, a value that can be specified to control the low base state as the special game with the remaining number of times zero ends. That is, the main control CPU 40a ends the high base state and shifts to the low base state. Further, the main control CPU 40a stores control information (hereinafter referred to as “low base state command”) that can specify the low base state in the output buffer.

  Incidentally, when a big hit game is awarded, the main control CPU 40a sets a value that can be specified to be controlled to a low probability state in the probability state flag and a value that can be specified to be controlled to a low base state. Set to base state flag. Further, the main control CPU 40a stores the low base state command in the output buffer.

Next, the normal symbol input process performed by the main control CPU 40a will be described.
In the normal symbol input process, the main control CPU 40a determines whether or not the game ball has passed (entered) the gate 31 based on whether a detection signal is input from the gate sensor SE4. When the game ball has not passed through the gate 31, the main control CPU 40a ends the normal symbol input process. On the other hand, when the game ball passes through the gate 31, the main control CPU 40a determines whether or not the number of normal holdings stored in the main control RAM 40c is less than the upper limit number (4 in this embodiment). . When the number of normal holdings is not less than the upper limit number, the main control CPU 40a ends the normal symbol input process. When the number of normal holdings is less than the upper limit number, the main control CPU 40a updates the normal holding number stored in the main control RAM 40c by adding 1. In this case, the main control CPU 40a controls the information display panel 22 so as to display the updated number of normal holdings.

  Next, the main control CPU 40a acquires a random number generated in the main board 40, and stores random number information based on the acquired random number in the main control RAM 40c. In this case, the main control CPU 40a stores the random number information for the normal game and the storage order of the random number information so that it can be specified. Thereafter, the main control CPU 40a ends the normal symbol input process.

Next, the normal symbol start process performed by the main control CPU 40a will be described.
In the normal symbol start process, the main control CPU 40a determines whether or not a normal game execution condition is satisfied. The main control CPU 40a makes an affirmative determination when the normal hit game is not being played and the normal game is not being played, while a negative determination is made when the normal hit game is being played or the normal game is being played. When the normal game execution condition is not satisfied, the main control CPU 40a ends the normal symbol start process.

  On the other hand, when the execution condition of the normal game is satisfied, the main control CPU 40a determines whether or not the number of normal holds stored in the main control RAM 40c is 1 or more. When the number of normal holdings is not 1 or more, the main control CPU 40a ends the normal symbol start process. When the number of normal hold is 1 or more, the main control CPU 40a updates the normal hold number stored in the main control RAM 40c by subtracting one. In this process, the main control CPU 40a controls the information display panel 22 so that the updated number of normal holdings is displayed. Next, the main control CPU 40a reads the random number information stored first among the random number information for the normal game from the main control RAM 40c. When the main control CPU 40a reads the earliest random number information, the main control CPU 40a erases the earliest stored random number information from the main control RAM 40c.

  Next, the main control CPU 40a determines whether or not to win the normal hit based on the read random number information and the normal hit determination value stored in the main control ROM 40b. This process corresponds to a normal lottery (ordinary hit determination) of whether or not the normal hit. For example, in the case of adopting the above-described normal symbol probability variation control, the main control CPU 40a performs normal hits so that the probability of winning in normal hits is higher in the high base state than in the low base state. It is better to determine whether or not to win.

  In the case of winning the normal hit, the main control CPU 40a determines the normal hit symbol to be derived in the normal game and the fluctuation time of the normal game. For example, when adopting the normal symbol variation time reduction control, the main control CPU 40a determines the first variation time in the low base state, and sets the second variation time shorter than the first variation time in the high base state. It is good to decide. Thereafter, the main control CPU 40a ends the normal symbol start process.

  Then, the main control CPU 40a performs a normal game by performing a process different from the normal symbol start process. Specifically, the main control CPU 40a starts the normal game and displays the information so that the normal symbol determined in the normal symbol start process is derived when the variation time determined in the normal symbol start process elapses. The panel 22 is controlled.

Next, the normal hit process performed by the main control CPU 40a will be described.
When the normal winning is won, the main control CPU 40a determines the opening pattern of the second starting port 27 when the normal game ends, and opens the second starting port 27 according to the determined opening pattern. Control the actuator. For example, when the above-described opening time extension control is adopted, the main control CPU 40a selects the first opening pattern in the low base state, and plays one normal hit game in the high base state rather than the first opening pattern. It is preferable to determine the second opening pattern in which the total opening time of the first variable member 28 is long.

  In this embodiment, it is easier to win a normal hit when in the high base state than in the low base state. The pachinko gaming machine 10 according to the present embodiment is configured to be able to win a normal winning even when in a low base state. When the normal winning lottery is won, the first variable member 28 is Open state. Therefore, in the pachinko gaming machine 10 of the present embodiment, when the base is in the low base state, the game ball is less likely to enter the second start port 27 than in the high base state, but to the second start port 27. There is a possibility that game balls will enter.

  However, it may be configured so that the game ball does not enter the second start port 27 when in the low base state. For example, it may be configured not to win the normal hit when in the low base state, or to prevent the first variable member 28 from being in the open state even when the normal hit is won in the low base state. It may be configured.

Next, various processes performed by the sub control CPU 50a based on the sub control program will be described.
First, state processing performed by the sub control CPU 50a will be described.

  When the low base state command is input, the sub control CPU 50a sets a value that can identify the low base state in the base state flag stored in the sub control RAM 50c. When the high base state command is input, the sub control CPU 50a sets a value that can identify the high base state in the base state flag stored in the sub control RAM 50c. The secondary control CPU 50a can identify whether the current gaming state is the high base state or the low base state by referring to the base state flag stored in the secondary control RAM 50c.

  When the opening control command is input, the secondary control CPU 50a sets a value that can specify that the big hit game is being played in the big hit state flag stored in the secondary control RAM 50c. When the sub-control CPU 50a inputs the variation pattern designation command after inputting the ending command, the sub-control CPU 50a sets a value capable of specifying that the big hit game is not in the big hit state flag stored in the sub control RAM 50c. The sub control CPU 50a can determine whether or not the big hit game is being played by referring to the big hit state flag stored in the sub control RAM 50c.

Next, the big hit effect process performed by the sub control CPU 50a will be described.
The sub-control CPU 50a controls at least one of the decoration lamp 17, the speaker 18, and the effect display device 25 so that the big hit effect is performed during the big hit game. Specifically, when the opening command is input, the sub control CPU 50a controls at least one of the decorative lamp 17, the speaker 18, and the effect display device 25 so that the opening effect is performed. In addition, when the round command is input, the sub control CPU 50a controls at least one of the decorative lamp 17, the speaker 18, and the effect display device 25 so that the round effect is performed. Further, when the ending command is input, the sub control CPU 50a controls at least one of the decorative lamp 17, the speaker 18, and the effect display device 25 so that the ending effect is performed.

Next, the effect game process performed by the sub control CPU 50a will be described.
The sub-control CPU 50a controls at least one of the decoration lamp 17, the speaker 18, and the effect display device 25 so that an effect game as a general effect and an effect accompanying the effect game are performed. Specifically, the sub-control CPU 50a performs control to execute the effect game when a symbol command and a variation pattern designation command are input. That is, the sub control CPU 50a determines a symbol combination to be derived in the effect game based on the variation pattern designation command and the symbol command. When the symbol that can be specified from the symbol command is a jackpot symbol, the sub-control CPU 50a determines a symbol combination for the jackpot symbol based on the effect symbol. When the symbol that can be specified from the symbol command is a missing symbol, the sub-control CPU 50a determines the symbol combination of the missing symbol based on the effect symbol.

  When the reach condition is established, the sub-control CPU 50a may determine the symbol combination including the reach when performing the reach effect in the current effect game. For example, as the reach condition, it may be determined that the reach variation pattern is designated among the deviation variation patterns, and the sub control CPU 50a performs the effect lottery using a predetermined random number, and the effect lottery You may decide that you won.

  In addition, when the change control designation command is input, the sub control CPU 50a controls the effect display device 25 so as to display the effect symbols in a variable manner. That is, the sub control CPU 50a starts the effect game. Therefore, it can be said that the variation pattern designation command is control information for instructing the start of the effect game based on the variation pattern. Further, the sub control CPU 50a controls at least one of the decoration lamp 17, the speaker 18, and the effect display device 25 so that a predetermined effect is executed based on the change pattern that can be specified from the change pattern designation command. To do. For example, the predetermined effects include a jackpot notice effect, a suggestion effect suggesting a gaming state, and the like.

  Then, when the predetermined timing arrives, the sub-control CPU 50a temporarily stops and displays the symbol combination based on the determined effect symbol, and derives the symbol combination based on the effect symbol upon input of the game end command. Note that the sub-control CPU 50a may count the change time that can be specified from the change pattern regardless of the game end command, and derive the symbol combination when the change time elapses. In this case, the game end command may be omitted.

  Here, based on FIG. 5, an example of the connection between the magnetic sensors ZS1 to ZS3 and the magnetic sensors ZS1 to ZS3 and the game board input / output board 42 will be described. The first magnetic sensor ZS1, the second magnetic sensor ZS2, and the third magnetic sensor ZS3 included in the pachinko gaming machine 10 of the present embodiment are the same. In FIG. 5, the first magnetic sensor ZS1 among the magnetic sensors ZS1 to ZS3 will be described as an example.

  As shown in FIG. 5, the first magnetic sensor ZS1 includes a power supply circuit 71, a magnetic sensor main circuit 72, resistors R1 to R5, a transistor Tr, and diodes D1 to D3. In the present embodiment, the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 includes a magnetic detection unit that detects magnetism. In the present embodiment, the transistor Tr is an NPN type transistor. The first magnetic sensor ZS1 includes a sensor internal power supply Vd (for example, DC 3.3V). Further, the first magnetic sensor ZS1 includes a plurality of terminals. Specifically, the first magnetic sensor ZS1 includes a first terminal P1 serving as a power supply terminal, a second terminal P2 serving as a first input terminal, a third terminal P3 serving as a second input terminal, and an output terminal. A total of five terminals, a fourth terminal P4 and a fifth terminal P5 serving as a ground terminal.

  The first terminal P <b> 1 is connected to the game board input / output board 42. A predetermined power supply voltage Vcc (for example, 11.4 V) is supplied from the game board input / output board 42 to the first terminal P1. The power supply voltage Vcc supplied from the first terminal P1 is supplied to the power supply circuit 71 provided in the first magnetic sensor ZS1 via the resistor R1. For example, the power supply circuit 71 converts the power supply voltage Vcc supplied from the first terminal P1 into a predetermined power supply voltage (for example, a power supply voltage necessary for operating the magnetic sensor main circuit 72). The power supply voltage converted in the power supply circuit 71 is supplied to the magnetic sensor main circuit 72.

  The sensor internal power supply Vd is connected to the resistor R2. The sensor internal power supply Vd is connected to the resistor R3. The sensor internal power supply Vd branches from the branch point B1 and is connected to the resistor R2 and the resistor R3, respectively. The resistor R2 is connected to the resistor R4. The resistor R2 is connected to the anode of the diode D1. The resistor R2 branches from the branch point B2, and is connected to the resistor R4 and the anode of the diode D1. The cathode of the diode D1 is connected to the third terminal P3. The resistor R4 is connected to the first connection portion K1 of the magnetic sensor main circuit 72.

  On the other hand, the resistor R3 is connected to the resistor R5. The resistor R3 is connected to the anode of the diode D2. The resistor R3 branches from the branch point B3 and is connected to the resistor R5 and the anode of the diode D2. The cathode of the diode D2 is connected to the second terminal P2. The resistor R5 is connected to the second connection part K2 of the magnetic sensor main circuit 72.

  The third connection portion K3 of the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 is connected to the base of the NPN transistor Tr. In the present embodiment, the transistor Tr corresponds to an output transistor. The emitter of the transistor Tr is connected to the anode of the diode D3. The emitter of the transistor Tr is connected to the fifth terminal P5. The emitter of the transistor Tr branches from the branch point B4 and is connected to the anode of the diode D3 and the fifth terminal P5. The collector of the transistor Tr is connected to the cathode of the diode D3. The collector of the transistor Tr is connected to the fourth terminal P4. The collector of the transistor Tr branches from the branch point B5 and is connected to the cathode of the diode D3 and the fourth terminal P4. In the present embodiment, the diode D3 is a Zener diode.

  In the present embodiment, the control signal output from the fourth terminal P4 becomes a magnetic detection signal, and is output from the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means. Thus, in the magnetic sensor, the output method of the magnetic detection signal is an open collector. Further, the collector of the transistor Tr serves as an output part of a magnetic detection signal.

  In the present embodiment, the magnetic detection signal can take a specific state and a non-specific state. Thus, the state of the magnetic detection signal includes a specific state and a non-specific state. In the present embodiment, the specific state is a state in which magnetism is detected, and the non-specific state is a state in which magnetism is not detected. As described above, in the present embodiment, the state of the magnetic detection signal may include a specific state in which magnetism is detected and a non-specific state in which magnetism is not detected. Recognize. In addition, in principle, the state of the magnetic detection signal in the present embodiment is a specific state when magnetism is detected, and a non-specific state when magnetism is not detected. Therefore, in principle, when the state where the magnetism is detected is switched to the state where the magnetism is not detected, the state of the magnetic detection signal is switched from the specific state to the non-specific state.

  In the present embodiment, when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism and the specific condition is satisfied, the state of the magnetic detection signal is “specific state”. On the other hand, in this embodiment, when the specific condition is not satisfied even when the magnetic sensor does not detect magnetism and when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, the state of the magnetic detection signal is “non-specific State ". The “specific condition” here will be described in detail later.

  Incidentally, in this embodiment, when the state of the magnetic detection signal is a specific state, the output state of the magnetic detection signal is at a low level (LOW-Level). On the other hand, when the state of the magnetic detection signal is the non-specific state in the present embodiment, the output state of the magnetic detection signal is at a high level (HIGH-Level). When the output state of the magnetic detection signal is low (when the state of the magnetic detection signal is a specific state) and when the output state of the magnetic detection signal is high (when the state of the magnetic detection signal is non-specific state) In some cases, the voltage value of the magnetic detection signal is different. In this embodiment, the voltage value of the magnetic detection signal when the output state of the magnetic detection signal is low level is lower than the voltage value of the magnetic detection signal when the output state of the magnetic detection signal is high level. . For example, when the output state of the magnetic detection signal is at a low level, the voltage value of the magnetic detection signal may be 0V or a value higher than 0V.

  The second terminal P <b> 2 is connected to the game board input / output board 42. The state of the door opening signal is input from the game board input / output board 42 to the second terminal P2. Thus, in the present embodiment, the state of the door opening signal corresponding to the opening detection signal is input to the magnetic sensor corresponding to the magnetic detection means. In the magnetic sensor, the value of the current I1 flowing into the second connection portion K2 of the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 varies depending on the state of the door opening signal (the voltage value of the door opening signal). That is, the value of the current I1 flowing into the second connection portion K2 of the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 when the door opening signal is in the first state is the value of the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 when the door opening signal is in the second state. It differs from the value of the current I1 flowing into the second connection part K2. For this reason, the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 operates according to the state of the door opening signal by operating according to the value (strength and magnitude) of the current I1 injected from the second connection portion K2. That is, operating the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 according to the value of the current I1 flowing into the second connection portion K2 corresponds to operating according to the state of the door opening signal.

  The third terminal P3 is connected to the game board input / output board. The third terminal P3 of the first magnetic sensor ZS1 is connected to a resistor Rd1 provided on the game board input / output board 42. Incidentally, the third terminal P3 of the second magnetic sensor ZS2 is connected to a resistor Rd2 provided on the game board input / output board 42. The third terminal P3 of the third magnetic sensor ZS3 is connected to a resistor Rd3 provided on the game board input / output board 42. The resistors Rd1 to Rd3 are variable resistors, and the resistance value can be switched by an external operation. In the game board input / output board 42, the resistors Rd1 to Rd3 are grounded.

  In the present embodiment, the resistance value of the resistor Rd1 is configured to be switchable among a resistance value Ra1, a resistance value Ra2, a resistance value Ra3, and a resistance value Ra4. Incidentally, the relationship between the resistance values is “resistance value Ra1 <resistance value Ra2 <resistance value Ra3 <resistance value Ra4”, and the resistance value Ra1 is the lowest among the resistance values Ra1 to Ra4.

  In the present embodiment, the voltage applied to the first magnetic sensor ZS1 can be switched by switching the resistance value of the resistor Rd1, and the magnetism detection range by the first magnetic sensor ZS1 can be switched. . Similarly, the voltage applied to the second magnetic sensor ZS2 can be switched by switching the resistance value of the resistor Rd2, and the magnetism detection range by the second magnetic sensor ZS2 can be switched. Further, the voltage applied to the third magnetic sensor ZS3 can be switched by switching the resistance value of the resistor Rd3, and the magnetism detection range by the third magnetic sensor ZS3 can be switched. In the present embodiment, the resistor Rd1 corresponds to the first magnetic sensor ZS1, the resistor Rd2 corresponds to the second magnetic sensor ZS2, and the resistor Rd3 corresponds to the third magnetic sensor ZS3.

  Thus, the pachinko gaming machine 10 of the present embodiment is configured to be able to switch the magnetism detection range by the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means. Further, the resistors Rd1 to Rd3 in the present embodiment correspond to predetermined resistors. In the pachinko gaming machine 10 of the present embodiment, when switching the resistance value of a predetermined resistor, the magnetism detection range by the magnetic sensor is switched by switching the voltage applied to the magnetic sensor corresponding to the resistor whose resistance value has been switched. It is configured to be possible.

  In the present embodiment, the value of the current I2 flowing into the first connection portion K1 of the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 is changed by switching the resistance value of the resistor Rd1. In the magnetic sensor main circuit 72, magnetism is detected in a detection range corresponding to the current I2 flowing from the first connection portion K1. The magnetic detection range can be said to be magnetic sensitivity.

  As shown in FIG. 6A, the first magnetic sensor ZS1 has a connector portion CA including a first terminal P1, a second terminal P2, a third terminal P3, and a fifth terminal P5 on one surface of a substantially rectangular parallelepiped shape. Is provided. Further, as shown in FIG. 6B, in the first magnetic sensor ZS1, information HK (detection lottery display that can specify the center point J of the magnetic detection range is provided on the back surface of the surface on which the connector CA is provided. ) Is written. A magnetism detection range is determined around the center point J of the magnetism detection range.

  And as shown in FIG.6 (c), the magnetic detection range centering on the center point J of 1st magnetic sensor ZS1 changes with resistance values of resistor Rd1. FIG. 6C shows an example of the magnetic detection ranges H1 to H4 centered on the central point J of the first magnetic sensor ZS1 on the XY plane. Specifically, when the resistor Rd1 has the resistance value Ra1, the magnetic detection range is the detection range H1. When the resistor Rd1 has the resistance value Ra2, the magnetic detection range is the detection range H2. Similarly, when the resistor Rd1 has a resistance value Ra3, the magnetic detection range is the detection range H3. When the resistor Rd1 has the resistance value Ra4, the magnetic detection range is the detection range H4.

  As shown in FIG. 6D, for example, when the resistor Rd1 has a resistance value Ra2, a detection range H2 is a range that extends in the vertical and horizontal directions around the center point J of the first magnetic sensor ZS1.

  As shown in FIG. 5, the fourth terminal P <b> 4 is connected to the game board input / output board 42. The state of the magnetic detection signal is output from the fourth terminal P4. When magnetism is detected and a specific condition is satisfied, a current flows from the third connection portion K3 of the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 to the base of the transistor Tr, and the transistor is turned on. On the other hand, when the magnetism is not detected, and when the magnetism is detected and the specific condition is not satisfied, the current flows from the third connection portion K3 of the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 to the base of the transistor Tr. Does not flow, and the transistor Tr is turned off. As described above, in the first magnetic sensor ZS1, when the magnetism is detected and the specific condition is satisfied, the current flows to the base of the transistor Tr. On the other hand, when the magnetism is not detected and the magnetism is detected. When the detection is being performed and the specific condition is not satisfied, no current flows through the transistor Tr.

  In the present embodiment, when the transistor Tr is turned on, the state of the magnetic detection signal output from the fourth terminal P4 is a specific state. On the other hand, in the present embodiment, when the transistor Tr is turned off, the state of the magnetic detection signal output from the fourth terminal P4 is an unspecified state.

  In the present embodiment, in principle, when magnetism is detected, current flows from the third connection portion K3, but when magnetism is not detected, current does not flow from the third connection portion K3. The first magnetic sensor ZS1 to the third magnetic sensor ZS3 are normally open (N / O) type sensors.

  The fifth terminal P5 is connected to the game board input / output board 42 and is grounded. Therefore, the emitter of the transistor Tr connected to the fifth terminal P5 is grounded. Thus, the emitter of the transistor Tr corresponding to the output transistor is grounded.

  Below, the characteristic of magnetic sensor ZS1-ZS3 in this embodiment is explained with the specific conditions mentioned above. Here, the first magnetic sensor ZS1 among the magnetic sensors ZS1 to ZS3 will be described as an example.

  In the first magnetic sensor ZS1, an initial operation is performed. The first magnetic sensor ZS1 performs an initial operation after the pachinko gaming machine 10 is powered on (after power supply is started). The initial operation is also referred to as initial operation or initial setting (or initial setting operation). The initial operation is performed once within a period from when the power is turned on until the power is turned off (from when power supply is started to when power supply is terminated).

  In the initial operation, an operation based on the magnetic field detected in the initial operation is performed. And when the increase / decrease value from the magnetic field used as the reference in the initial operation exceeds the threshold value, the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism. Therefore, when the initial operation is performed with the magnet close to the first magnetic sensor ZS1, the magnetic field in the state where the magnet is close to the first magnetic sensor ZS1 becomes a reference.

  In the first magnetic sensor ZS1, after the power of the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on, the initial operation is not performed when the state of the door opening signal input from the second terminal P2 is the first state. On the other hand, in the first magnetic sensor ZS1, after the power of the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on, the initial operation is performed at least when the state of the door opening signal input from the second terminal P2 is the second state. Thus, in this embodiment, when the state of the door opening signal input to at least the first magnetic sensor ZS1 is the first state, the initial operation is not performed and at least the door opening input to the first magnetic sensor ZS1 is performed. An initial operation is performed when the signal state is the second state.

  For example, when the power of the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on when both the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, the state of the door opening signal input to the first magnetic sensor ZS1 is the second state. Because of this, an initial operation is performed. On the other hand, when the power of the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened, the state of the door opening signal input to the first magnetic sensor ZS1 is the first state. When it is, the initial operation is not performed. Thereafter, when both the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, the state of the door opening signal input to the first magnetic sensor ZS1 becomes the second state, so the first magnetic sensor ZS1 Initial operation is performed. As described above, in the first magnetic sensor ZS1 in the present embodiment, when power supply is started when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened, the power supply is started. The initial operation is performed after the first closing of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14.

  In the present embodiment, even when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism, when a predetermined condition is satisfied, the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in a specific state but in a non-specific state. That is, in the present embodiment, even when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism, when a predetermined condition is satisfied, the output state of the magnetic detection state does not become low level but becomes high level. On the other hand, in the present embodiment, when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism and the predetermined condition is not satisfied, the state of the magnetic detection signal becomes a specific state. That is, in the present embodiment, when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism and the predetermined condition is not satisfied, the output state of the magnetic detection signal becomes a low level.

  In the present embodiment, the predetermined condition is satisfied when the magnetic sensor is performing an initial operation. As described above, the predetermined condition in this embodiment includes a predetermined condition that is satisfied when the magnetic sensor is performing an initial operation (a predetermined condition that is satisfied when the initial operation is performed).

  For this reason, even when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism, when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 is performing an initial operation, the state of the magnetic detection signal is not a specific state but is a non-specific state. . That is, even when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism, when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 performs an initial operation, the output state of the magnetic detection signal is not at a low level but at a high level.

  Thus, the period from the start of the initial operation to the end of the initial operation (when the initial operation is performed) is magnetic even when the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means detects magnetism. This corresponds to a period (first period) in which the state of the detection signal is not in a specific state but is in a non-specific state. In addition, as described above, when the power of the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened (when power supply is started), the first time An initial operation is performed after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed. Therefore, even when the magnetic sensor serving as the magnetic detection means detects magnetism, during the period (first period) in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state and is in the non-specific state, the middle frame 13 and There is a period from when the power is turned on when at least one of the front frames 14 is open to when the initial operation is completed after the first closing of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14.

  In the present embodiment, the predetermined condition is satisfied when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened. As described above, the predetermined condition in the present embodiment includes a predetermined condition that is satisfied when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened (the state of the door opening signal input to the magnetic sensor is first. There is a predetermined condition established by being in a state. In the present embodiment, a predetermined condition that is satisfied when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open corresponds to a specific predetermined condition.

  For this reason, even when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism, when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open, the state of the magnetic detection signal does not become a specific state, It becomes a specific state. That is, even when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism, when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open, the output state of the magnetic detection signal does not become low level but high. Become a level.

  When at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened, the state of the door opening signal input to the second terminal P2 is the first state (the output state of the door opening signal is Equivalent to low level). Further, when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open, the value of the current I1 flowing into the second connection portion K2 of the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 is the first value when the door open signal is in the first state. It can be said that it is the value of the current I1 flowing into the second connection portion K2 when in the state.

  In this way, during the period when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open, even if the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means detects magnetism, the state of the magnetic detection signal is in the specific state. This corresponds to a period (third period) in which the non-specific state is entered. That is, during the period in which the door opening signal input to the second terminal P2 is in the first state, even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, the state of the magnetic detection signal does not become a specific state and is not specified. This corresponds to the period (third period) in which the state is entered. Therefore, in this embodiment, when the state of the door opening signal input to the magnetic sensor is the first state, the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but is in the non-specific state.

  In the present embodiment, the predetermined condition is that even when the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, if the initial operation has already been performed, the predetermined condition is determined after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed. It is established when it is within a period until the time elapses (for example, within a period until one second elapses). As described above, the predetermined condition in the present embodiment is that, even when the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, when the initial operation has already been performed, the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed. There is a predetermined condition that is satisfied when the predetermined time elapses. Even when the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, if the initial operation has already been performed, it is within a period until a predetermined time elapses after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed. The predetermined condition that is sometimes satisfied can be said to be a predetermined condition that is satisfied when a predetermined time has not elapsed after the state of the door opening signal is switched from the first state to the second state.

  For this reason, even when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism, if the initial operation has already been performed, the magnetic detection signal of the magnetic detection signal is within a predetermined period after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed. The state is not a specific state but a non-specific state. That is, even when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism, when the initial operation has already been performed, the output of the magnetic detection signal is performed within a predetermined period after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed. The state becomes high level instead of low level. Thus, after the state of the door opening signal is switched from the first state to the second state, that is, after the specific predetermined condition is satisfied and the specific predetermined condition is not satisfied, the predetermined time is elapsed. In the period until the time elapses, even if the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism, the state of the magnetic detection signal may not be in a specific state and may be in a non-specific state. That is, this is a case where the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism within a period from when the specific predetermined condition is satisfied to when the specific predetermined condition is not satisfied, until the predetermined time elapses. However, the output state of the magnetic detection signal may become a high level instead of a low level.

  Note that within a period until a predetermined time has elapsed after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, the state of the door opening signal input to the second terminal P2 is switched from the first state to the second state. It can also be said that it is within a period until a predetermined time elapses later (in a period until a predetermined time elapses after the output state of the door opening signal is switched from the low level to the high level). Within the period until the predetermined time elapses after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, the value of the current I1 flows into the second connection portion K2 when the door open signal is in the first state. It can be said that it is within a period until a predetermined time elapses after switching from the value of the current I1 to the value of the current I1 flowing into the second connection portion K2 when the state of the door opening signal is the second state.

  Incidentally, in this embodiment, the time required for the initial operation (the time from the start of the initial operation to the end of the initial operation) is longer than the predetermined time. For this reason, even when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism when the initial operation is performed, the period in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state and is in the non-specific state is the middle frame 13 and the front frame. Even when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism until a predetermined time elapses after 14 is closed, the state of the magnetic detection signal is longer than the period in which the state is not in the specific state but in the non-specific state.

  Thus, even when the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, if the initial operation has already been performed, a predetermined time elapses after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed. The period corresponds to a period (second period) in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but in the non-specific state even when the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means detects magnetism.

  In the present embodiment, as described above, when the power of the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened (when power supply is started). An initial operation is performed after the first closing of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14. Therefore, when the power of the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened, a predetermined time after the second and subsequent middle frames 13 and the front frame 14 are closed. The period until elapses is a period (second period) in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state and is in the non-specific state even when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism. That is, when the power of the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened, the initial operation is performed after the first middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed. The period (first period) being performed is “a period in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but in the non-specific state even when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism”. On the other hand, when the power of the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened, after the second and subsequent middle frames 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, a predetermined time is passed. The period until the elapse of time (second period) is “a period in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but in the non-specific state even when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism”.

  Even when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, the period during which the initial operation is performed (the first period) and the middle period are the periods in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but in the non-specific state. A period until the predetermined time elapses after the frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed (second period), and a period in which at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open (third period). There is. That is, even when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, the period in which the output state of the magnetic detection signal becomes high level instead of low level, the first period, the second period, and the third period There is a period. The first period is longer than the second period. In the present embodiment, the first period and the second period are constant periods, while the third period is an indefinite period.

  In the pachinko gaming machine 10, when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened, even if the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism, the state of the magnetic detection signal does not become a specific state. Further, in the pachinko gaming machine 10, even after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism during a period when the initial operation is performed or until a predetermined time elapses. Even in this case, the state of the magnetic detection signal is not a specific state. In the present embodiment, a period during which the initial operation is performed and a period until a predetermined time elapses correspond to the predetermined period. In the pachinko gaming machine 10, the state of the magnetic detection signal is set to the specific state within a predetermined period after the state of the door opening signal input to the first magnetic sensor ZS1 is changed from the first state to the second state. Instead, it becomes a non-specific state. That is, in the pachinko gaming machine 10, the output state of the magnetic detection signal is low level within a predetermined period after the output state of the door opening signal input to the first magnetic sensor ZS1 is switched from the low level to the high level. It becomes a high level.

  Since it is configured as described above, even if the door opening signal input to the first magnetic sensor ZS1 changes from the first state to the second state, the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism. Even in this case, at least within a predetermined period after the door opening signal is changed from the first state to the second state, the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but is in the non-specific state.

  Further, in the present embodiment, even when the magnetism is detected after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed depending on whether the magnetism is detected when the state of the door opening signal is the first state, the magnetism detection is performed. The length of the period (predetermined period) in which the signal state is not in the specific state but is in the non-specific state does not change. Therefore, the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism when the door opening signal is in the first state, and the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism when the door opening signal is in the first state. In the case where the door opening signal is not in the specific state after the door opening signal is changed from the first state to the second state, the length of the period in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state is the same. .

  Further, in the present embodiment, the state of the magnetic detection signal even when the magnetism is detected regardless of whether the magnetic sensor has detected magnetism before the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed. The length of the period (predetermined period) during which is not in the specific state but in the non-specific state does not change. Therefore, when either the middle frame 13 or the front frame 14 is opened, the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism, and when either the middle frame 13 or the front frame 14 is opened. In the case where the first magnetic sensor ZS1 does not detect magnetism when the magnetic sensor is in the state, the length of the period during which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but in the non-specific state is the same.

As described above, in the present embodiment, even when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism, a period in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but is in the non-specific state is provided.
In the present embodiment, the magnetic detection range by the first magnetic sensor ZS1 can be switched. However, the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism by the magnetic detection range by the first magnetic sensor ZS1. Even in this case, the length of the period in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state and is in the non-specific state does not change. Therefore, even if the magnetism detection range is switched, the magnetism detection signal is not in a specific state even when the first magnetometer ZS1 detects magnetism by switching the magnetism detection range. The length of the non-specific period is not changed. For this reason, in the present embodiment, even when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism, the length of the period during which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state and is in the non-specific state is changed. Thus, there is no need to switch the magnetic detection range.

  In the present embodiment, the magnetic detection range by the first magnetic sensor ZS1 can be switched. However, the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism by the magnetic detection range by the first magnetic sensor ZS1. Even in this case, the presence or absence of a period in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state and is in the non-specific state does not change. Therefore, even if the magnetism detection range is switched, the magnetism detection signal is not in a specific state even when the first magnetometer ZS1 detects magnetism by switching the magnetism detection range. The presence or absence of a non-specific state does not change. For this reason, in the present embodiment, for example, even when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism, a change in the presence or absence of a period in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but in the non-specific state is considered. Therefore, it is not necessary to switch the magnetic detection range.

Here, the “specific condition” in the present embodiment will be described.
In the present embodiment, the specific condition is not when the initial operation is performed, but when the door opening signal is not in the first state and the door opening signal is switched from the first state to the second state. This is true if it is not a period until the time elapses. Therefore, in the present embodiment, the case where the predetermined condition is not satisfied corresponds to the case where the specific condition is satisfied.

  When the specific condition is satisfied, when the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism, a current flows from the third connection portion K3 of the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 of the first magnetic sensor ZS1 to the base of the transistor Tr. As a result, the transistor Tr is turned on. And the state of the magnetic detection signal from the 4th terminal P4 of the 1st magnetic sensor ZS1 will be in a specific state. That is, the output state of the magnetic detection signal from the fourth terminal P4 of the first magnetic sensor ZS1 is low level.

  On the other hand, when the specific condition is satisfied, if the first magnetic sensor ZS1 does not detect magnetism, no current flows from the third connection portion K3 of the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 of the first magnetic sensor ZS1 to the base of the transistor Tr. . As a result, the transistor Tr is turned off. And the state of the magnetic detection signal from the 4th terminal P4 of 1st magnetic sensor ZS1 will be in a non-specific state. That is, the output state of the magnetic detection signal from the fourth terminal P4 of the first magnetic sensor ZS1 is at a high level.

  Incidentally, when the specific condition is not satisfied, that is, when the predetermined condition is satisfied, whether the first magnetic sensor ZS1 detects magnetism or not detects magnetism, the first magnetic sensor ZS1 No current flows from the third connection portion K3 of the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 to the base of the transistor Tr, and the transistor Tr is turned off. For this reason, the state of the magnetic detection signal from the fourth terminal P4 of the first magnetic sensor ZS1 becomes a non-specific state. That is, the output state of the magnetic detection signal from the fourth terminal P4 of the first magnetic sensor ZS1 is at a high level.

  In the pachinko gaming machine 10 of the present embodiment, as described above, the state of the magnetic detection signal is input to the game board input / output board 42 and then to the main board 40 connected to the game board input / output board 42. Entered. The main control CPU 40a of the main board 40 performs various processes according to the state of the magnetic detection signal (output state of the magnetic detection signal).

There is processing (hereinafter referred to as magnetic detection processing) performed by the main control CPU 40a according to the state of the magnetic detection signal.
In the magnetic detection process, the main control CPU 40a determines predetermined control information (hereinafter referred to as magnetic detection) when the state of the input magnetic detection signal is a specific state (that is, when the output state of the magnetic detection signal is low level). Control information) is stored in the output buffer. Since the magnetic detection control information is control information that is output when the state of the magnetic detection signal is a specific state, it can also be said to be control information that can specify that magnetism has been detected.

  The sub-control CPU 50a of the sub-board 50 receives the magnetic detection control information, so that the decoration detection lamp 17, the speaker 18, and the effect display device are performed so that a magnetic detection notification effect for notifying that the magnetism has been detected is performed. Control at least one of 25. In the present embodiment, the sub-control CPU 50a controls the decorative lamp 17 to emit light in a predetermined light emission mode, controls the warning sound to be output from the speaker 18, and specifies that magnetism has been detected. Control is performed so that possible images are displayed on the effect display device 25. In the magnetic detection notification effect in the present embodiment, information that can specify that magnetism has been detected is notified.

  When the effect display device 25 is executing the effect game, the sub control CPU 50a stops the execution of the effect game and performs the magnetic detection notification effect so that the magnetism detection notification effect is performed. It may be configured to control at least one of the display devices 25. Moreover, in this embodiment, although it comprised so that a magnetic alerting | reporting effect could be performed using the decoration lamp 17, the speaker 18, and the effect display apparatus 25, some of the decoration lamp 17, the speaker 18, and the effect display apparatus 25 were used. The magnetic notification effect may be performed. Further, in the present embodiment, since the magnetic notification effect is performed by inputting the magnetic detection control information to the sub-control CPU 50a, the magnetic detection control information performs the magnetic notification effect (the magnetism has been detected). It can also be said to be control information instructing to notify information that can be specified).

  In the magnetic detection process, the main control CPU 40a outputs a specific external signal when the input magnetic detection signal is in a specific state (that is, when the output state of the magnetic detection signal is low). Control. In this way, the main control CPU 40a outputs a specific external signal on condition that the state of the magnetic detection signal is a specific state. The specific external signal corresponds to an external signal output from the specific connection terminal when the specific connection terminal and the external device are connected among the connection terminals of the external terminal plate 46.

  When the main control CPU 40a controls the output of a specific external signal, when the specific connection terminal is connected to the external device, the specific external signal is output to the external device. Since the specific external signal is an external signal that is output when the state of the magnetic detection signal is the specific state, it can be said that the specific external signal can be an external signal that can specify that magnetism has been detected. As described above, in the present embodiment, the main control CPU 40a that realizes the function as the control means can control the output of the external signal output from the connection terminal. In the present embodiment, the main control CPU 40a that realizes the function as the control means controls the output of a specific external signal when the magnetism can be detected.

  In the present embodiment, when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened, even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, the state of the magnetic detection signal does not become a specific state. For this reason, even when the connection terminal and the external device are connected, when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open, a specific external signal is detected even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism. Is not output to an external device.

  In the present embodiment, within a predetermined period after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, the state of the magnetic detection signal does not become a specific state. For this reason, even when the connection terminal and the external device are connected, within a predetermined period after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed (within a predetermined period after the door member is closed). Even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, a specific external signal is not output to the external device.

  Specifically, in the present embodiment, when the magnetic sensor performs an initial operation after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, the magnetic sensor The state of the output magnetic detection signal is not a specific state. For this reason, even when the connection terminal and the external device are connected, when the magnetic sensor performs an initial operation, a specific external signal is output to the external device even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism. Not.

  In the present embodiment, even when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism within a period until a predetermined time elapses after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, the state of the magnetic detection signal is a specific state. Not. For this reason, even when the connection terminal and the external device are connected, the magnetic sensor detects magnetism within a period until a predetermined time elapses after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed. However, a specific external signal is not output to the external device.

  In this embodiment, when the power of the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened (when power supply is started), An initial operation is performed after the frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed. When the initial operation is performed, an external signal is not output to the external device even if the connection terminal and the external device are connected. Further, when the power of the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open, a predetermined time is passed after the second and subsequent middle frames 13 and the front frame 14 are closed. In the period until the elapse of time, when the initial operation is performed, an external signal is not output to the external device even if the connection terminal and the external device are connected. In this embodiment, the time required for the initial operation in this embodiment (the time from the start of the initial operation to the end of the initial operation) is longer than the predetermined time.

  And, when the connection terminal and the external device are connected, and the power of the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened, the power is turned on. A period during which a specific external signal is not output to the external device even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism from the first closing of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 after the closing is defined as “period T1”. In addition, when the connection terminal and the external device are connected and the power of the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened, the power is turned on. A period in which a specific external signal is not output to the external device even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism from the second and subsequent closing of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is referred to as “period T2”. In this case, the period T1 is longer than the period T2.

  In the magnetic detection process, when the state of the input magnetic detection signal is a specific state, the main control CPU 40a performs a process related to a special game (for example, a special symbol start process) or a process related to a normal game (for example, a normal symbol). If the start process is in the middle of execution, the process in the middle of the execution may be stopped. You may comprise so that playing a game may be prohibited by stopping the process in the middle of execution.

  In this way, when it is prohibited to play a game, the main control CPU 40a is configured to stop until the power to the pachinko gaming machine 10 is cut off (until power supply is completed). May be. That is, when magnetism is detected, the special game process and the normal game process may be limited until the power to the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on again. In the present embodiment, for example, after the magnetic detection signal is in a specific state, the magnetic detection signal is not in a non-specific state even if the magnetic sensor is switched to a state in which no magnetism is detected. You may comprise so that it may continue with a state.

  In the pachinko gaming machine 10 of the present embodiment, as described above, the state of the door opening signal is input to the main board 40 after being input to the front frame signal board 49. Then, the main control CPU 40a of the main board 40 performs processing according to the state of the door opening signal (the output state of the door opening signal).

  Specifically, the main control CPU 40a, when the state of the input door opening signal is the first state (that is, when the output state of the door opening signal is low level), the predetermined control information (hereinafter referred to as the door). Is stored in the output buffer. Since the door opening control information is control information that is output when the door opening signal is in the first state, it is possible to specify that at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 has been opened. It can also be called information.

  When the sub-control CPU 50a of the sub-board 50 inputs the door opening control information, it notifies that at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open (the door member is open). At least one of the decorative lamp 17, the speaker 18, and the effect display device 25 is controlled so that the door opening notification effect is performed. In the present embodiment, the sub-control CPU 50a controls the decorative lamp 17 to emit light in a predetermined light emission mode, and controls to output a sound such as “the door is open” from the speaker 18, Control is performed so that a character image such as “the door is open” is displayed on the effect display device 25. In the door opening notification effect in the present embodiment, information capable of specifying that at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened (the door member is opened) is notified.

  Here, based on FIGS. 7A to 7C, the characteristics of the magnetic sensor in the present embodiment and the operation thereof will be described with reference to a timing chart. In the description of FIG. 7, “when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open” means “when the door open signal is in the first state (the output state of the door open signal is low). Level)). Similarly, in the description of FIG. 7, “when the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed” means “when the door opening signal is in the second state (the output state of the door opening signal is high level). Is equivalent to “when”.

  In FIG. 7A, it is assumed that the power of the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on (power supply is started) when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open. On the other hand, in FIGS. 7B and 7C, it is assumed that the initial operation of the magnetic sensor has already been completed.

  As shown in FIG. 7A, after the power of the pachinko gaming machine 10 is turned on when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open, the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 at timing t11. When is closed, the magnetic sensor performs an initial operation. Thus, when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened, the initial operation is not performed, and the initial operation is performed after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed.

  Incidentally, it is assumed that the initial operation in FIG. 7A is performed from timing t11 to timing t12. During the period in which the initial operation is performed (the period from timing t11 to timing t12), for example, even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism from timing t13 to timing t14 in the period in which the initial operation is performed, the magnetism The state of the detection signal is not a specific state but a non-specific state.

  As shown in FIG. 7B, it is assumed that at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened at timing t21. Even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism from timing t22 to timing t23 within a period in which at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open, the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in a specific state and is not specific. It becomes a specific state. Incidentally, when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened at the timing t21, a door opening notification effect is performed.

  As shown in FIG. 7C, it is assumed that at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened at timing t31. Then, after at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened at timing t31, the magnetic sensor detects magnetism at timing t32 before the middle frame 13 and front frame 14 are closed. At timing t32, since at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened, the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but in the non-specific state.

  Further, it is assumed that the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed at a timing t33 when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism. The timing t33 is a timing before a timing t34 when a predetermined time elapses after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed although the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed. For this reason, from the timing t33 to the timing t34 when a predetermined time elapses, even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in a specific state but is in a non-specific state.

  Then, after timing t34 when a predetermined time elapses after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, the state of the magnetic detection signal becomes a specific state. As described above, when the state of the magnetic detection signal becomes the specific state, the magnetic detection notification effect is performed and a specific external signal is output to the external device connected to the connection terminal. Incidentally, when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened at the timing t31, a door opening notification effect is performed.

Therefore, according to the present embodiment, the following effects can be obtained.
(1) A door opening signal (opening detection signal) is input to the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means. When the door opening signal is in the first state, an initial operation is performed by the magnetic sensor. I tried not to break it. Thereby, for example, it is possible to prevent the initial operation from being performed in a situation where the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are opened and the magnetism (magnetism not intended to be fraudulent) of the speaker is detected.

  In addition, since the initial operation is performed at least when the door open signal is in the second state, the initial operation is performed in a state where magnetism is detected when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened. The initial operation can be performed so that the magnetic sensor can function normally while suppressing the operation.

  (2) When at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened (when the door member is opened), for example, the magnetism of the magnet of the speaker of the adjacent gaming machine is detected magnetically. There is a possibility that the magnetic sensor as the means detects it. However, when the state of the door opening signal (opening detection signal) is the first state, the state of the magnetic detection signal does not become the specific state but becomes the non-specific state. As described above, the state of the magnetic detection signal does not become a specific state in a situation in which at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened, and thus the magnetic sensor can detect unintentional magnetism. Thereby, it can suppress that it falls into the situation where playing a game is prohibited by detecting the magnetism which does not intend fraud.

  (3) When the pachinko gaming machine 10 is shaken by an impact such as closing the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 (closing the door member), the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means detects the magnetism that is not intended to be fraudulent. It is also possible. For this reason, even after the door opening signal (opening detection signal) changes from the first state to the second state, the state of the magnetic detection signal is specified within the period (predetermined period) until the predetermined time elapses. It became a non-specific state instead of a state. As a result, it is possible to suppress a situation in which playing a game is prohibited due to detection of magnetism that is not intended to be fraudulent immediately after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed.

  (4) Even if the magnetism is detected before the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed (the door member is closed), the state of the door opening signal (opening detection signal) is changed from the first state to the first state. Within a predetermined period (period during which the initial operation is performed or a period until a predetermined time elapses) after the two states are reached, the state of the magnetic detection signal does not become a specific state but becomes a non-specific state. I made it. Thereby, it can suppress that it falls into the condition where playing a game is prohibited by detecting the magnetism which does not intend fraud before the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed.

  (5) The middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 irrespective of whether or not the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means has detected magnetism before the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed (the door member is closed). The length of the period in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but is in the non-specific state after the is closed is the same. Thereby, it is not necessary to change the phenomenon that occurs depending on whether the magnetic sensor detects magnetism before the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, and the configuration of the magnetic sensor can be simplified. .

  (6) A door opening signal (opening detection signal) is inputted to the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detecting means, and when the door opening signal is in the first state, an initial operation by the magnetic sensor is performed. I tried not to break it. Thereby, for example, it is possible to prevent the initial operation from being performed in a situation where the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are opened and the magnetism (magnetism not intended to be fraudulent) of the speaker is detected.

  Further, when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened (the door member is opened), the power is turned on (when power supply is started), and the power is turned on. The initial operation is performed after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed. For this reason, the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are turned on after the power is turned on while suppressing the initial operation in a situation where magnetism is detected when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened. An initial operation can be performed so that the magnetic sensor can function normally before the frame 14 is closed and the game is started.

  (7) When at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened (when the door member is opened), even when the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means detects magnetism Certain external signals are not output. As a result, it is possible to suppress reporting that fraud has been made to an administrator of an external device (for example, an administrator of a gaming machine) that inputs a specific external signal by detecting magnetism that is not intended to be fraudulent. it can.

  (8) When the pachinko gaming machine 10 is shaken by an impact such as closing the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 (closing the door member), the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means detects the magnetism that is not intended to be fraudulent. It is also possible. For this reason, even after the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed, a specific external signal is not output within a predetermined period. As a result, the manager of the external device (for example, the manager of the gaming machine) who inputs a specific external signal by detecting the magnetism that is not intended to be fraudulent immediately after closing the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is fraudulent. It is possible to suppress being reported as an accident.

  (9) When at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened (when the door member is opened), the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but in the non-specific state. As a result, a specific external signal is not output. As a result, it is possible to suppress reporting that fraud has been made to an administrator of an external device (for example, an administrator of a gaming machine) that inputs a specific external signal by detecting magnetism that is not intended to be fraudulent. it can.

  (10) When power is turned on when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open, the magnetism is detected from the first closing of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 The period during which no specific external signal is output is longer than the period during which no specific external signal is output even when magnetism is detected from the second and subsequent closing of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14. By the way, it is assumed that the closing of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 (closing of the door member) after the second power-on (after power supply is started) is during the business hours of the amusement store. For this reason, if a specific external signal is not output over a long period from the closing of the door member, the risk of fraudulent acts during that period increases, or the player's standby time until the period ends It is possible to become. For this reason, even when the magnetism is detected from the closing of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 after the second time, the specific external signal is reduced by reducing the length of the period during which the specific external signal is not output. It is possible to reduce the risk of fraudulent activity during the period of no output, or to shorten the waiting time of the player.

  (11) When the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means detects magnetism, when the predetermined condition is satisfied, the state of the magnetic detection signal does not become the specific state but becomes the non-specific state, while when the predetermined condition is not satisfied The state of the magnetic detection signal becomes a specific state. Thus, under the condition where the predetermined condition is satisfied, even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, the state of the magnetic detection signal does not become a specific state. As a result, more appropriate magnetism can be detected as compared to the case where the magnetism detection state becomes a specific state simply because the magnetic sensor detects magnetism.

  (12) During a period until a predetermined time elapses after switching from a state where a specific predetermined condition among a plurality of types of predetermined conditions is satisfied to a state where the specific predetermined condition is not satisfied, Even when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, the state of the magnetic detection signal does not become a specific state but becomes a non-specific state. As a result, it is possible to prevent a situation in which playing a game is prohibited due to detection of magnetism that is not intended to be fraudulent due to switching to a state in which a specific predetermined condition is not satisfied. And more appropriate magnetic detection can be performed.

  (13) Even when the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means detects magnetism, the period of the first period or the second period is the period in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but in the non-specific state. There are multiple periods. Thus, according to the situation, even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, it is possible to provide a period during which the magnetic detection signal is in a non-specific state without being in a specific state. Detection can be performed.

  (14) When at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened (when the door member is opened), the magnetic sensor may detect magnetism that is not intended to be fraudulent like the magnetism of the speaker. is there. In addition, in the “period in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but in the non-specific state even when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism”, separately from the first period and the second period, There is a period (third period) in which at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open. Thereby, apart from the first period and the second period, the state of the magnetic detection signal should not be in a specific state even in a period in which at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open. Thus, more appropriate magnetic detection can be performed.

  (15) When power is turned on when at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is open, even when magnetism is detected from the first closing of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 The period in which the signal is not in the specific state is longer than the period in which the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state even when the magnetism is detected from the second and subsequent closing of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14. By the way, it is assumed that the closing of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 (closing of the door member) after the second power-on (after power supply is started) is during the business hours of the amusement store. For this reason, if the period when the magnetic detection signal is not in a specific state is long even when magnetism is detected from the closing of the door member, the risk of fraudulent acts during that period increases or the period ends. It is conceivable that the waiting time of the player becomes longer. For this reason, by shortening the period in which the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state even when the magnetism is detected from the second and subsequent closing of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14, it is illegal in the period in which the specific external signal is not output. The risk that an action is performed can be reduced, and the waiting time of a player can be shortened.

  (16) The magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means has a transistor Tr as an output transistor. The transistor Tr is turned on when magnetism is detected and the specific condition is satisfied, while the transistor Tr is turned on when the magnetism is not detected and when the magnetism is detected. If not established, it is turned off. The state of the magnetic detection signal can be changed (switched) using such an on state or off state of the transistor Tr.

  (17) When at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened (when the door member is opened), for example, the magnetism of the magnet of the speaker of an adjacent gaming machine is detected magnetically. There is a possibility that the magnetic sensor as the means detects it. For this reason, it is possible to detect the magnetism more appropriately by satisfying the predetermined condition by opening at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14. Further, after at least one of the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 is opened, the initial operation is performed after the first middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 are closed after the power is turned on (power supply is started). The predetermined condition is established by performing the initial operation. As a result, since the state of the magnetic detection signal does not become a specific state during the initial operation, the initial operation can be normally performed, and as a result, the magnetic operation can be appropriately detected by performing the initial operation normally. become able to.

  (18) There is a period in which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but in the non-specific state even when the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means detects magnetism. For this reason, even when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, the magnetic detection signal is detected even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism within a period in which the magnetic detection signal is not in a specific state and is in a non-specific state. Is not in a specific state. As a result, more appropriate magnetism can be detected as compared with a case where the state of the magnetic detection signal becomes a specific state simply because the magnetic sensor detects magnetism. Further, by configuring the magnetism detection range to be switchable, for example, when it is preferable to widen the detection range, the magnetism detection range can be switched widely, while when it is not preferable to widen the detection range, the magnetic detection range can be switched. The detection range can be switched narrowly, and appropriate magnetic detection can be performed.

  (19) When the pachinko gaming machine 10 is shaken by an impact such as closing the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14 (closing the door member), the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means detects the magnetism not intended to be fraudulent. It is also possible. For this reason, even if it is a case where a magnetic sensor detects magnetism during the period until a predetermined time passes after the state of a door opening signal (opening detection signal) changes from the 1st state to the 2nd state, the magnetic detection signal The period in which the state becomes a non-specific state without becoming a specific state. As a result, immediately after closing the middle frame 13 and the front frame 14, it is possible to suppress a situation in which playing a game is prohibited due to detection of magnetism that is not intended to be fraudulent. Magnetic detection can be performed.

  (20) Depending on the detection range of the magnetism, even when the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means detects magnetism, the length of the period in which the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state and is in the non-specific state does not change. . For this reason, even if the detection detection of magnetism is switched, even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, the length of the period during which the state of the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but is in the non-specific state is changed. Therefore, appropriate magnetic detection can be performed. Further, even when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, it is not necessary to switch the magnetism detection range in consideration of a change in the length of the period in which the magnetism detection signal is not in the specific state but is in the nonspecific state. .

  (21) Depending on the magnetism detection range, even if the magnetic sensor as the magnetism detection means detects magnetism, there is no change in the presence or absence of a period in which the magnetic detection signal is not in a specific state but in a non-specific state. . For this reason, even if the magnetism detection range is switched, a period in which the state of the magnetism detection signal is not in a specific state but in a non-specific state is provided even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism. Thus, appropriate magnetic detection can be performed. Further, even when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, it is not necessary to switch the magnetism detection range in consideration of the presence or absence of a period in which the magnetic detection signal is not in the specific state but is in the non-specific state.

  (22) By switching the resistance value of the resistor Rd1 corresponding to the predetermined resistor, the magnetism detection range by the first magnetic sensor ZS1 corresponding to the magnetic detection means can be switched. That is, the magnetism detection range by the first magnetic sensor ZS1 can be switched by switching the resistance value of the resistor Rd1 on the electric circuit. Thus, instead of switching the magnetism detection range by the control of the first magnetic sensor ZS1, the magnetism detection range is switched due to inadequate control by switching the magnetism detection range by physically switching the resistance value. Can be suppressed, and more appropriate magnetic detection can be performed.

  (23) Even when the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means detects magnetism, the output state of the magnetic detection signal becomes high level instead of low level when a predetermined condition is satisfied. On the other hand, when the magnetic sensor is detecting magnetism and the predetermined condition is not satisfied, the output state of the magnetic detection signal becomes low level. Thus, under the condition where the predetermined condition is satisfied, even if the magnetic sensor detects magnetism, the output state of the magnetic detection signal does not become low level. As a result, it is possible to detect the appropriate magnetism as compared with the case where the output state of the magnetic detection signal is at a low level just because the magnetic sensor simply detects the magnetism.

  In addition, when a disconnection occurs in the electric circuit of the magnetic sensor, no current flows in the electric circuit, so it is assumed that the output state of the magnetic detection signal is at a low level. Using the fact that the output state of the magnetic detection signal becomes low level when the magnetism is detected and the specific condition is satisfied, for example, a disconnection has occurred in the electric circuit of the magnetic sensor. Even in this case, it is possible to notify that an abnormality has occurred in the magnetic sensor, for example, by notifying that the output state of the magnetic detection signal has become low level and detecting magnetism.

  (24) By using an open collector as the magnetic detection signal output method, the output state of the magnetic detection signal can be switched in consideration of countermeasures against static electricity and noise. As a result, it is possible to suppress inappropriate detection of magnetism that occurs when the output state of the magnetic detection signal does not become an appropriate output state due to static electricity or noise, and appropriate magnetic detection can be performed.

  (25) A magnetic sensor serving as a magnetism detection means that detects unintentional magnetism in accordance with a switch from a state in which a specific predetermined condition is satisfied among a plurality of types of predetermined conditions to a state in which the specific predetermined condition is not satisfied May be detected. For this reason, the output state of the magnetic detection signal does not become low level but becomes high level until a predetermined time elapses after switching from the state where the specific predetermined condition is satisfied to the state where the specific predetermined condition is not satisfied. There is a case. As a result, it is possible to prevent a situation in which playing a game is prohibited due to detection of magnetism that is not intended to be fraudulent due to switching to a state in which a specific predetermined condition is not satisfied. And more appropriate magnetic detection can be performed.

  (26) Even when the magnetic sensor as the magnetic detection means detects magnetism, the period in which the output state of the magnetic detection signal becomes high level instead of low level is the first period or the second period. There are multiple periods. As a result, according to the situation, it is possible to provide a “period during which the output state of the magnetic detection signal does not become low level but becomes high level even when the magnetic sensor detects magnetism”. Detection can be performed.

  (27) The state of the door opening signal (opening detection signal) is via the main board 40, the game board input / output board 42, the main control relay terminal board 44, the payout control board 45, the launch control board 48, and the front frame signal board 49. . This makes it possible to manage the state of the door opening signal on the main board 40, the game board input / output board 42, the main control relay terminal board 44, the payout control board 45, the launch control board 48, and the front frame signal board 49. For example, control according to the state of the door opening signal can be performed, and the state of the door opening signal can be easily used. On the other hand, since the state of the door opening signal does not go through a substrate that can be connected to an external device, fraud such as changing the state of the door opening signal using an external device or the like can be suppressed, and security is improved. . As described above, while the main board 40, the game board input / output board 42, the main control relay terminal board 44, the payout control board 45, the launch control board 48, and the front frame signal board 49 are in the state of the door open signal, Since the state of the door open signal does not pass through the terminal plate 46 and the lending device connection terminal plate 47, it is possible to improve the security while making it easy to use the state of the door open signal.

In addition, you may change the said embodiment as follows.
In the above embodiment, the voltage value applied to the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 may be changed depending on the state of the door opening signal (opening detection signal) input to the magnetic sensor. And you may comprise the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 so that it may operate | move according to the voltage value which changes with the state of a door open signal. At this time, the operation of the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 according to the voltage value that changes depending on the state of the door opening signal corresponds to the operation of the magnetic sensor main circuit 72 according to the state of the door opening signal.
