Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR UTILIZING TICKETS TO PROGRESS GAME PLAY IN A GAMING MACHINE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL POUR UTILISER DES TICKETS PERMETTANT DE FAIRE AVANCER LE JEU DANS UNE MACHINE DE JEU
Abstract
(EN) A gaming system that allows a player to retain game assets earned during game play on a data storage medium (e.g., a paper ticket) for use in future gaming sessions. A game asset provides the player with an advantage for winning an award or for acquiring a larger award. The player receives the ticket during, or at the end of the player's gaming session. The player holds the ticket until his next gaming session, or may alternatively use the ticket in the same gaming session. At that time, the player may insert the ticket into the gaming machine's bill validator. The bill validator reads the tickets, and configures the game according to the game assets stored on the ticket.
(FR) Système de jeu permettant à un joueur de conserver ses gains obtenus lors du jeu sur un support de stockage de données (tel qu’un ticket en papier) afin qu’il les utilise lors de prochaines séances de jeu. Des gains confèrent au joueur un avantage afin de décrocher un prix ou obtenir un prix plus important. Le joueur reçoit le ticket pendant ou à la fin de sa séance de jeu. L’utilisateur conserve le ticket jusqu’à sa prochaine séance de jeu ou peut, en variante, utiliser le ticket pendant la même séance de jeu. A ce moment, le joueur peut insérer le ticket dans l’unité de validation de tickets de la machine de jeu. L’unité de validation de tickets lit les tickets et configure le jeu en fonction des gains stockés sur le ticket.
