Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR LINKED PLAY GAMING WITH COMBINED OUTCOMES AND SHARED INDICIA
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF DE JEU COLLECTIF AVEC RESULTATS COMBINES ET INDICES PARTAGES
Abstract:
(EN) The invention includes a system and method for providing linked play via gaming and other devices wherein players may share and combine outcomes or parts thereof. In some embodiments, a casino server (102) registers a group for linked play and a group objective and format are established. The linked play commences according to the group format on the gaming devices (104, 106, 108) while the casino server (102), or another device, concurrently facilitates interaction between the group members operating the gaming devices (104, 106, 108). During the interaction, players may combine outcomes in an attempt to win group prizes. The linked play is terminated according to the group format and a determination is made by the casino server (102) whether the group objective has been achieved. Prizes are awarded via the gaming devices if the group objective was achieved.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé destinés à fournir un jeu collectif au moyen de dispositifs de jeu et analogues, et permettant aux joueurs de partager et de combiner des résultats ou des parties correspondantes. Dans certains modes de réalisation, un serveur de casino (102) enregistre un groupe pour un jeu collectif, un objectif et un format de groupe étant établis. Le jeu collectif commence selon le format de groupe sur les dispositifs de jeu (104, 106, 108). Simultanément, le serveur de casino (102), ou un autre dispositif, facilite l'interaction entre les membres du groupe utilisant les dispositifs de jeu (104, 106, 108). Pendant cette interaction, les joueurs peuvent combiner des résultats dans l'intention de gagner des prix de groupe. Ce jeu collectif est terminé selon le format de groupe, le serveur de casino (102) déterminant alors si l'objectif de groupe a été atteint. Les prix sont distribués par l'intermédiaire des dispositifs de jeu si l'objectif de groupe a été atteint.
