Title (EN) PLAYING CARD SHUFFLER
(FR) BATTEUR DE CARTES À JOUER
Abstract: front page image
(EN) An apparatus is for shuffling a plurality of playing cards used in gaming. The apparatus includes a support adapted to support the unshuffled cards on-edge. An exciter is also included, and is adapted to impart vibrational action to the supported cards. Cards drop in a random fashion such as by controlling the relative position of the cards and passage through one or more slots in the supporting rest. In some of the apparatuses a medial receiver is adapted to receive at least one card dropped from the support and to retain the at least one received card to substantially block the slot to prevent further cards from dropping. A positioner is preferably included to change the relative position of the unshuffled deck and slots through which the cards drop.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil permettant de battre une pluralité de cartes à jouer à des fins de jeu. L'appareil comprend un support conçu pour porter les cartes non battues à la verticale. Un excitateur est également inclus, et est conçu pour transmettre une action vibratoire aux cartes portées. Les cartes tombent d'une manière aléatoire par la commande de la position relative des cartes et le passage au travers d'une ou de plusieurs fentes dans l'appui de support. Dans certains appareils, un récipient médian est conçu pour recevoir au moins une carte tombée du support et pour retenir ladite ou lesdites cartes reçues pour sensiblement bloquer la fente en vue d'empêcher d'autres cartes de tomber. Un dispositif de positionnement est de préférence inclus pour changer la position relative du paquet non battu et des fentes au travers desquelles les cartes tombent.
