Subsequently, the control program executed by the game machine GM on the basis of FIG 5 will be described. Figure 5 is a flow chart of a control program of the game machine GM. This control program is stored in the ROM102 to the game machine GM, and is executed by the CPU 101.

(Step S1)
First, in step 1, the start acceptance process is carried out. Start acceptance process, using a credit, it is a process that accepts the start of the execution of the slot game. Therefore, in the start acceptance process, the determination of the presence or absence of credit is made.
Credit, insertion of medals from the medal insertion slot 9, increased by winning in the slot games and roulette games, slot in the game (main game), reduced by the bet. In other words, if the credit is 0, waiting to be processed at the start acceptance process, to wait for the processing until the credit is increased by the insertion of medals.
If the credit is present, CPU 101 is operated in the BET button 13, the operation of MAXBET button 14, the operation of the repeat bet button 15, based on the operation of the start button 16, BET switch 121, MAXBET switch 122, the repeat bet switch 123 , and it accepts the switch signal output from the start switch 124. Then, at the time of accepting the switch signal output from the repeat bet switch 123 or the start switch 124, the game is started by the same number of bets as set bet number or the previous by the player.

(Step S2)
When the start acceptance process in step S1 is performed, CPU 101 transmits the bet amount information to the main unit SV. Here, the number of bets information is that the number of credits bet is the player to start a game in the game machine GM. In other words the bet to start the game in the game machine GM, means the number of credits of the information is subtracted from the credit owned before the start of the resulting game.

It should be noted that, in the case where the game machine GM1 ~ GM4 there is a game to use a medal, such as pusher game directly, sends a "game media (medal) throw-in number information" instead of the number of bets information. Here, the game medium insertion number information, if the game is to begin as soon as the game after introducing the game media such as medals, means information representative of the feed amount of the game medium. On the other hand, after the insertion of a game media, start button and at the time of the operation means the operation of the input buttons and the like, as long as a game in which the use of game media, operation information is game medium of operation means that trigger the use of game media It means a throw-in number information. In the present embodiment, it referred to as game media used count information including the bet number information and the game medium insertion count information.

(Step S3)
When the start acceptance process in step S1 is performed, BET switch 121, MAXBET switch 122, based on the switch signal output from the REPEAT BET switch 123 and a start switch 124, various lottery processes are performed. Specifically, the lottery of the winning combination in the base game which is performed using the variable display portions 21 to 23, performed using the sampled random number value with a predetermined lottery table in random number sampling means 113, it is stopped and displayed that pattern is determined. Further, the winning combination based on the combination of symbols stopped and displayed on the pay line L and the payout thereof are determined.

(Step S4)
In the game process typically variable display of the symbol columns 31 to 33 on the variable display portions 21 to 23 is started, the symbol based on the lottery result of the lottery process in step S3 is displayed stopped after a predetermined time has elapsed. Furthermore, based on a combination of symbols stopped and displayed on the pay line L, credits corresponding to the payout which is set in advance are paid out.

(Step S5)
In step S4, the bonus game is started when a combination of symbols displayed stopped on the pay line L is a predetermined combination (Joker 44 in this case). CPU101 determines whether joker 44 is aligned on the pay line L.

(Step S6)
In step S5, when it is determined that the winning the bonus game, the bonus game process is performed. CPU101, in this bonus game process, the game number of times determined by the lottery, continuous variation and stops displaying the symbol columns 31 to 33 and without consuming credits, pay out credits corresponding to the payout (the so-called free game).

On the other hand, in step S5, if it is determined to be not a bonus game, CPU 101 ends the control program.

(Step S7)
It is either a winning combination in step S4 or step S6, when a payout of medals, CPU 101 sends the credit information to the main unit SV.

Next, it will be described with reference to FIG. 8 control in the first game casing 400.

(Step S110) (step S120)
As already described in FIG. 5, when the main game is executed in the game machine GM, every game, the bet number information is transmitted to the first game casing 400. The first game casing 400 receives the bet number information (wager information) and denomination information ( "wager Information / denomination information"). It should be noted, will be described later "denomination information".
Upon receiving the bet amount information, the token lottery process is executed (step S120). That is, when the game is played in the game machine GM, token lottery process is carried out. This token lottery process will be described later.

Incidentally, as described above, when the game machine GM1 ~ GM4 is a game using medals, such as pusher game directly, similarly to the above, the first game casing 400, medals used number information and denomination information ( " medal number of used information / denomination information ") to receive.

(Step S130) (step S140)
If it is determined that the token lottery or processing is carried out, or not received bet amount information from the game machine GM is in step S110 in step S120, whether it is receiving the second game start information determination It is.
When receiving the second game start information, the second game execution processing is performed (step S140).

On the other hand, in step S130, if it is determined that it has not received the second game start information, the processing is terminated.

At step S130, it becomes possible to whether the first game casing 400 has received the second game start information is determined are as already described. Start information for the second game is transmitted from the second game controller 320 in the main unit portion 300 in the first game casing 400. Specifically, the timer unit 321 of the second game controller 320 is a predetermined time (as described above, 15 minutes) and measured, information about the start / run of the second game every time the predetermined time has elapsed the sending the first game casing 400. Here it will be described with reference to FIG. 9 the control in the second game control unit 320.

(Step S131)
The second game control unit 320 determines whether a predetermined time in the timer section 321 (15 minutes) has elapsed. This determination is repeated until a predetermined time elapses.

(Step S132)
In the step S131, the if it is determined that the predetermined time has elapsed, the second game controller 320 transmits the second game start information to the first game casing 400.

(Step S133) (step S134)
In step S132, the second game start information is transmitted, the second game controller 320 resets the timer count of the timer section 321 (step S133), starts a timer count by operating the timer section 321 again (step S134).

Thus, the second game control unit 320 manages the start / run of the second game, is controlled so that the second game is executed in the game machine GM1 ~ GM4 at predetermined intervals (15 minutes) . Thus, the player each other in normal doing different games, since the second game so that the can join together to provide a gaming surname can not be obtained in the main game such as a sense of unity and competitiveness can. Also, a player who is a player of the main game, the next time that the second game is started can be clearly recognized. Therefore, the restriction that must continue without rest the main game in order to participate in the second game, will not be imposed on the player. As a result, it is possible that the player will continue the game in a free pace. Further, since the start time of the next second game it is clear, and immediately after the payout of high payout is done, there is no possibility of lowering the termination immediately after any drawing power of the second game.

Next, it will be described with reference to FIG. 10 tokens lottery process in step S120.

(Step S121)
In token lottery process, first token lottery request processing is performed. This token lottery request process, information for performing token lottery from the first game casing 400 to the main unit portion 300 is transmitted. Then, the token lottery is performed by a token lottery section 314 of the main unit portion 300.
When the token lottery is performed by a token lottery section 314, the spruce result information is transmitted from the main unit portion 300 in the first game casing 400.
Thereafter, the first game casing 400, the token lottery advisability information sent from the main unit portion 300 is received token lottery request processing ends.

(Step S122) (step S123)
In step S121, if it has won tokens lottery, tokens are paid out (step S123). Incidentally, payout of the token, as described above, may be those that are actually paid out to the player as a separate game media from the medal game machine as the data or the like without actually paid out to the player GM , or it may be one stored in the main unit SV.

Next, it will be described with reference to FIG. 11 for the second game execution process in step S140.

(Step S141)
First, it is determined whether there is a token that a player owns. Now token owned by the player is determined that no one, processing ends.

(Step S142) (step S143)
On the other hand, in step S141, if the player is determined to be a token owned performs reception of betting to the second game a certain time. If the bet acceptance is closed for to the second game, whether or not there is a bet to the second game is determined (step S143). Here, when it is determined that there is no bet to the second game, the processing is terminated.

(Step S200)
In step S143, if it is determined that the bet to the second game, the information for the second game to the second game controller 320 of the main unit portion 300 from the first game casing 400 It is sent. The second game control unit 320 controls so as to start the second game to the second game execution unit 500.
When the second game is executed by the second game execution unit 500, the result information is first game casing via the main unit portion 300 (second game controller 320) from the second game execution unit 500 It is sent to the 400. Incidentally, the second game controller 320 and the second game execution unit 500 corresponds to the second game control means in this embodiment.

(Step S144)
When the second game execution unit operating process of the step S200 is completed, then, in the first game casing 400, for receiving the second game result information transmitted from the main unit portion 300 (second game controller 320) .

(Step S145)
Then, the second game result information whether the player wins is determined in the second game (step S145).

(Step S146)
In step S145, if it is determined that the player wins the second game transmits the credit information that corresponds to the winning result in the game machine GM.

On the other hand, in step S145, if it is determined not to have won in the second game, the processing is terminated.

Here will be described with reference to FIG. 12 Token drawing by the token lottery section 314 of the main unit portion 300.

Token lottery, as already described, is carried out on the basis of the wager information and denomination information in the game machine GM (credit unit price information). Among, the denomination information, which one credit in the first game to define whether the value corresponding to the number of sheets medals, in the present embodiment, is set to 1 (i.e. 1 credit = 1 medal) ing. Note that this denomination information, can also be provided in advance a plurality of setting. For example, setting 1 "1 credit = one medal", set 2 when the "100 credit = one medal" are prepared multiple settings as and so on, game machine, each of the game machines GM1 ~ GM4 is different denomination even, it is possible to carry out the second game in cooperation after performing without contradiction token lottery.

That is, the credit unit price information, from the wager data in the game machine GM, the game machine GM credit conversion table (the setting value of medals in use is set in advance whether to correspond to what sheets of credit for one is converted based on the table) are divided into each of a plurality of settings, such as setting 2. In other words, the game machine GM credit bid converting means (game medium value converting means for converting, based on conversion tables predefined value of medals are used in (a game device) (game media), game medium value conversion step) comprising a further configure.

Here, the denomination information, a game machine GM1, GM2 is an example where a structure that can use the money will be described more specifically. Game machine GM1 is a one credit set at 100 yen (about 1 US dollars). On the other hand, the game machine GM2 is a one credit of the set with a 1-yen (about 1 cent). At this time, in the one credit of the game machine GM1 and GM2, will with a difference of 100 times its value. This is the case where only subjected to drawing based on the bet information at each of the game machines GM1, GM2, the different potential value clearly possessed by tokens between players. In this situation, in the case of performing the second game is a game in which jointly would obviously unfair occurs between players. However, as described above, in the present embodiment by performing token lottery based on the bet information and denomination information by setting the denomination information, it is possible to adjust the credit unit price between the game machine GM1, GM2. It should be noted that, when the credit unit price is constant between the game machine GM1 ~ GM4, it is also possible to omit the use of the denomination information.

(Step S301) (step S302)
Here, the "t" is betting information, in other words, represents the number of times to perform a token lottery, which is automatically calculated from the number of credits and the denomination information that has been bet in the main game. For example, in the case of performing the one-time token lottery every time that one medal is bet, if one credit is set to one medal, every time there is a 1 credit bet, but carried out a one-time token lottery , when one credit is set to 100 medal, for every 100 credits of the bet, it will be performed once the token lottery. Here, an example when performing one token lottery whenever a one credit is bet, t = 10, that is described as an example when a 10 credits wagered in the main game. For example, in this embodiment, the token lottery is performed to probability winning 1/250.

(Step S303)
In step S302, if the winning token lottery, tokens are paid out one. Then, the number of tokens stored in the token number storage unit 404, further to the player by being reflected in the number owned tokens token display unit 405 to notify the number of tokens owned. On the other hand, if no winning token lottery proceeds to a process at step S304 is not performed payout tokens.

(Step S304) (Step S305)
In step S303, whether the token is paid out, unless won tokens lottery at step S302, t is -1 subtracted (step S304).
Then, until t = 0, the processing up to step S302 ~ step S304 are repeated.

Thus, in the token lottery, so that the token lottery number corresponding to the bet credit amount and denomination is received. Therefore, I bet by increasing the number of credits or denomination, and that also increases the probability of winning in that amount only token lottery.
It is also possible as to change the lottery probability of token lottery depending on the bet credit number and denomination. For example, it may be provided a plurality of lottery table for the token lottery in accordance with the bet credit amount and denomination, selects the extract election table by the number of credits or denomination the player has bet. This lottery table, high lottery table of the probability of winning if token lottery greater the number of credits or denomination bet is assumed to be selected. According to such a configuration, by increasing the number of credits and denomination betting, so that also increases the probability of winning in that amount only token lottery.

The above embodiment is merely an example of a token lottery, for example, at t = 10, once performed lottery draw for 10 times the probability of winning when t = 1 (probability 1/25 in the above example) the method can be applied.

As described above, in this embodiment, because a lottery token based on the number of credits each player has bet in the game of the main game, credits number different player who bet to the player of the main game even, resulting token becomes a winning probability of 1/250 both against one credit, the value of one token, each owned becomes equal. With such a configuration, since the plurality of player can play the game of a was in second game can bet a token of the same value when performing jointly a second game, a game that took part at the same time in the second game it is possible to provide a game that does not unfair occurs between Sha.

In the present embodiment, when there is a difference between the denomination (credit unit price) of the game machine GM1 ~ GM4 in game main game, the adjustment of the lottery number of tokens based on the number of credits and the denomination information (or winning probabilities perform the adjustment). Intended Therefore, even during the credit amount and denomination (credit unit price) are different game machines GM1 ~ GM4 bet to the player of the main game, the bet number of theoretical required to obtain one token is equal to to become. With such a configuration, a different denomination second bet (credit unit price) game machine GM1 token of the same value even in the case where a plurality of players to perform a game in ~ GM4 perform the joint second game of the game it can be carried out of the game. Therefore, it is possible to provide a game that does not unfairness occurs in between the player who took part at the same time in the second game.

Next, the roulette game performed as the second game will be described with reference to FIGS. 13 and 14. 13, FIG, 14 shows an image of a roulette game displayed on the second game monitor main unit SV is a flow chart showing the processing of a roulette game played by the second game execution unit 500. Incidentally, this processing is stored in the appropriate ROM main unit SV is provided (not shown), it is executed by the CPU (not shown) provided in the main unit SV.

(Step S401) (step S402)
First, in step 401, the bet reception process is performed. In the bet acceptance process, by using the token, it is a process of accepting to participate in the second game. Accordingly, in the bet acceptance processing, first judgment about the presence or absence of a token is made. Then, the bet reception process loops until a predetermined time elapses (step S402).
