Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1437698A2] The machine has a rotatably supported drive rollers in contact with an outer periphery of a cylindrical unit (27) at a side edge of a reel. The drive unit is connected to a drive motor. The cylindrical unit is disposed between the drive unit and a following roller. Each reel is rotated together with the drive unit and the following roller, when the drive unit is rotated by the drive motor.

[origin: EP1437698A2] In the gaming machine 10, it is provided the drive rollers 52L, 52C, 52R each of which is rotatably supported while contacting to the outer periphery of the cylindrical member 27 at the side edge of each reel 26L, 26C, 26R and the following rollers 65L, 56C, 56R each of which is rotatably supported while contacting to the inner surface of the cylindrical member 27 corresponding to the contact portion where each of drive rollers 52L, 52C, 52R is contacted to the outer periphery of the cylindrical member 27, thereby the cylindrical member 27 in each reel 26L, 26C, 26R is held between the drive roller 52L, 52C, 52R and the following roller 56L, 56C, 56R. Each reel 26L, 26C, 26R is rotated together with the drive roller 52L, 52C, 52R and the following roller 56L, 56C, 56R when each drive roller 52L, 52C, 52R is rotated by the stepping motor 54L, 54C, 54R. <IMAGE>
