Title (EN) GAMING MACHINE WITH SYMBOL ENHANCEMENTS BASED ON WINNING OUTCOMES
(FR) MACHINE DE JEU POSSEDANT DES AMELIORATIONS DE SYMBOLES SUR LA BASE DES COMBINAISONS GAGNANTES
Abstract:
(EN) A wagering game in a gaming machine includes symbols that are associated with multiple payoff levels. The symbols may have their payoff levels incremented and decremented based on certain predefined criteria. The criteria may be based on a winning outcome, random selection, the position of the symbols, the configuration of the symbols, and the like. As some symbols have their payoff levels incremented, other symbols have their payoff levels decremented. Each symbol may be graphically rendered in a manner to distinctively indicate the particular payoff level currently assigned to that symbol. In this way, the wagering game maintains a dynamic mix of symbols having different payoff levels and graphical renderings.
(FR) Un jeu de hasard dans une machine de jeu comprend des symboles qui sont associés à des niveaux de gains multiples. Les symboles comportent des niveaux de gains qui augmentent ou baissent par incréments, sur la base de certains critères prédéfinis. Les critères peuvent être basés sur une combinaison gagnante, une sélection aléatoire, la position des symboles, la configuration des symboles ou similaire. A mesure que certains symboles voient augmenter par incréments leurs niveaux de gains, d'autres symboles voient leurs niveaux de gains baisser par incréments. Chaque symbole peut être rendu graphiquement dans une manière qui indique de façon distincte le niveau de gain particulier attribué actuellement à ce symbole. De cette manière, le jeu de hasard entretient un mélange dynamique de symboles possédant des niveaux de gains et des rendus graphiques différents.
