Title
(EN) ELECTRONIC SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR OPERATING AN AUXILIARY INCENTIVE GAME
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE ELECTRONIQUE POUR L'EXPLOITATION D'UN JEU AUXILIAIRE AVEC LOTS D'INCITATION
Abstract
(EN) The progress of each player in playing an auxiliary incentive game simultaneously with a primary card game is controlled and displayed at a gaming table. A prize display (34) is attached to the table and the prize display indicates at least one prize available to the player who accumulates a predetermined number of bonus points playing the auxiliary game. A player interface unit (30) is positioned on the table adjacent to each player. The player interface unit displays the number of bonus points received by the associated player. A dealer interface unit (32) is positioned on the table adjacent the dealer. The dealer interface unit includes control elements to allow the dealer to display the bonus points awarded to each player on the associated player interface unit and to activate a prize award control element on the player interface unit. The winning player selects a randomly indexed prize indicated on the prize display by manipulating the prize award control element on their player interface unit. A controller (36) is connected to the prize display and the player and dealer interface units to control the displays and operation of the equipment.
(FR) La progression de chaque joueur participant simultanément à un jeu auxiliaire avec lots d'incitation et à un jeu de cartes principale est commandée et affichée au niveau d'une table de jeu. Un affichage (34) pour lots est fixé à la table et montre au moins un lot offert au joueur qui cumule un nombre prédéterminé de points de bonification en jouant au jeu auxiliaire. Une unité d'interface utilisateur (30) est placée sur la table à proximité de chaque joueur. L'unité d'interface utilisateur affiche le nombre de points de bonification reçus par le joueur associé. Une interface de meneur de jeu (32) est positionnée sur la table, à proximité dudit meneur. Ladite unité de meneur de jeu comprend des éléments de commande permettant au meneur d'afficher les points de bonification attribués à chaque joueur, sur l'unité d'interface joueur associée, et conçus pour activer un élément de commande d'attribution de prix prévu sur l'unité d'interface joueur. Le joueur gagnant sélectionne un lot indexé de manière aléatoire, figurant sur l'affichage pour lots, en manipulant l'élément de commande d'attribution de lots sur son unité d'interface de joueur. Un organe de commande (36) est connecté à l'affichage pour lots et aux unités d'interface de joueur et de meneur de jeu, de sorte que la commande des affichages et du fonctionnement de l'équipement soit assurée.
