Title (EN) IMPROVEMENTS IN AN AMUSEMENT DEVICE
(FR) AMELIORATION A UN DISPOSITIF DE JEU
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Amusement devices of the rotating wheel type which employ a plurality of rotatable wheels (210) having indicia thereon which are rotated by the player and are arrested at random. When certain random combinations of indicia are aligned after the wheels (210) are arrested, a win condition is sensed and the player receives a reward. The disclosure is particularly concerned with improvements in the mechanisms for rotating the wheels and for arresting wheel rotation. For imparting rotation to the wheels (210), a clutch (50) rotatable through a drive stroke less than 180 is mounted for free rotation with respect to drive shaft (40). Crank drive pawl (160) is pivotally mounted on clutch (50) at a pivot location spaced from the center of rotation of the clutch (50), and an operating crank (150) non-rotatably affixed to the drive shaft (40) has a drive notch (152) for engagement with pawl (160), with the clutch (50) being rotatable through a predetermined angle following which the pawl (160) is gravitationally biased into engagement with the drive notch (152) after which the clutch (50) and operating crank (150) rotate together through a drive portion of the stroke.
(FR)Dispositifs de jeux du type a roues de rotation qui utilisent une pluralite de roues rotatives (210) portant des indices inscrits, qui sont mis en rotation par le joueur et s"arretent au hasard. Lorsque certaines combinaisons au hasard d"indices sont alignees apres l"arret des roues (210), une condition de gain est detectee et le joueur recoit un prix. L"invention concerne en particulier des ameliorations aux mecanismes de rotation des roues et d"arret de la rotation des roues. Pour mettre les roues (210) en rotation, un embrayage (50) rotatif par l"intermediaire d"une course d"entrainement inferieure a 180 degres est montee en rotation libre par rapport a un arbre de transmission (40). Un linguet d"entrainement de manivelle (160) est monte en pivotement sur l"embrayage (50) en un point de pivot espace du centre de rotation de l"embrayage (50), et une manivelle d"actionnement (150) fixee de maniere non rotative a l"arbre de transmission (40) possede un cran termine d"apres lequel le linguet (160) est pousse par gravite en engagement avec le cran d"entrainement (152) apres quoi, l"embrayage (50) et la manivelle d"actionnement (150) tournent ensemble sur une partie d"entrainement de la course.
