Title (EN) WAGERING GAME WITH SIMULATED MECHANICAL REELS
(FR) JEU À PARI AVEC ROUES MÉCANIQUES SIMULÉES
Abstract:
(EN) A gaming machine for playing a wagering game includes a housing having a display region, a curved transparent layer located in the display region, and a video display. The video display is located behind the transparent layer for projecting moving images onto the transparent layer. The images including a plurality of symbols that indicate a randomly selected outcome of the wagering game. The curved transparent layer can be moving as well. Environmental mapping may be used to sense the location of the player and/or the ambient lighting surrounding the gaming machine and alter the images based on the sensing. The altering may include spectral highlights, shading, and the parallax effect. The video images may further include imperfections normally found in mechanical reel strips. The gaming machine provides video images that more closely simulate the look of traditional mechanical reels.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une machine à sous permettant de jouer à des jeux à paris. Cette machine comporte un carter portant un dispositif d'affichage, une couche transparente incurvée située dans la zone d'affichage, et un écran vidéo. L'écran vidéo est situé derrière la couche transparente de façon à projeter des images animées sur la couche transparente. Les images comportent une pluralité de symboles indiquant un résultat choisi au hasard du jeu à pari. La couche transparente incurvée peut également bouger. La configuration de l'environnement peut servir à détecter l'emplacement du joueur et/ou l'éclairage ambiant entourant la machine à sous et à modifier les images en fonction de ce qui a été détecté. Les modifications peuvent porter sur des mises en évidence spectrales, des assombrissements, et des effets de parallaxe. Les images vidéo peuvent en outre comporter des imperfections telles que celles que l'on trouve dans les voyants des roues mécaniques. Cette machine à sous donne des images vidéo simulant d'encore plus près l'aspect des roues mécaniques conventionnelles.
