Title
(EN) GAMING DEVICE WITH INTERACTIVE SPIN ACTION VISUAL EFFECTS
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE JEU AVEC EFFETS VISUELS D'ACTION DE ROTATION INTERACTIVE
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention relates to a reel-type slot machine having interactive spin action visual effects. The reel-type slot machine includes at least M reels, each reel having symbols associated with it; a video display for displaying a video image of a M N matrix of squares, each square associated with a symbol of a corresponding reel; and a spin actuator for initiating play and interactively producing spin action visual effects associated with the M x N matrix of squares by inputting a direction vector and speed, wherein the direction vector and speed respectively determine the direction and speed of the spin action visual effects. Preferably, the spin actuator is a trackball.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne une machine à sous du type à rouleaux ayant des effets visuels d'action de rotation interactive. La machine à sous du type à rouleaux comprend au moins M rouleaux, chaque rouleau ayant des symboles qui sont associés à celui-ci ; un écran vidéo pour afficher l'image vidéo d'une matrice M x N de carrés, chaque carré étant associé à un symbole d'un rouleau correspondant ; et un dispositif d'actionnement de rotation pour déclencher un jeu et produire de façon interactive des effets visuels d'action de rotation associés à la matrice M x N de carrés par entrée d'un vecteur de direction et d'une vitesse, le vecteur de direction et la vitesse déterminant respectivement la direction et la vitesse des effets visuels d'action de rotation. De préférence, le dispositif d'actionnement de rotation est une boule de commande.
