Title
(EN) COMPUTER GAMBLING GAME
(FR) JEU DE HASARD INFORMATISE
Abstract
(EN)
A computer gambling game is disclosed herein. The computer gambling game includes a computer program to provide a plurality of sequences of game states, each leading to a game outcome. A game seed is required by the computer program to generate one of the sequences of game states. Each game seed corresponds to one of the sequences of game states. The computer program can be acquired in the form of a computer-readable medium, such as, for example, a CD-ROM. To play the computer game, a player must also acquire an initiator code that can either be printed on an instant play lottery ticket or distributed via a computer network. The initiator code corresponds to one of the game seeds. The computer program uses a look-up table to retrieve the game seed that corresponds to the initiator code and to provide the corresponding sequence of game states that will lead to the outcome. Some outcomes lead to gains.

Ce jeu de hasard informatisé utilise un programme informatique pour créer plusieurs séquences d'états, conduisant chacune à un résultat de jeu. Un germe de jeu est requis par le programme informatique pour engendrer l'une des séquences d'états de jeu. Chaque germe de jeu correspond à l'une des séquences d'états du jeu. Le programme informatique peut être acquis sous la forme d'un support lisible par ordinateur, tel qu'un CD-ROM. Pour jouer à ce jeu informatisé, le joueur doit également acquérir un code initiateur qui peut être soit imprimé sur un ticket de loterie instantané soit distribué par l'intermédiaire d'un réseau informatique. Le code initiateur correspond à l'un des germes du jeu. Le programme informatique utilise une table de consultation pour rapatrier le germe du jeu correspondant au code initiateur et pour fournir la séquence correspondante d'états qui va engendrer le résultat. Certains résultats entraînent des gains.
