Gambling machine with circulating winning symbols - has winning values, associated with memory and indicators of stepping switches, forming geometrical progression series
DE 3035947 A1
The winning or loosing symbols are coupled to a winning scanner whose winning indicating signals are supplied to individual winning memories and indication elements. The memory and indication elements are formed into stepping switchgear, changeable by a random generator in the direction of higher or lower winning. The gambler has a possibility to store the indicated winning result in a credit counter. The winning values, associated with the memory and indicator elements of the stepping switchgear, form a geometric progression series. The winning scanner connected memory and indicator elements belong exclusively to continuous region of the series with low winning values. A control determines the gambling duration. It is activatable in dependence on the appearance of a winning result. The control starts the random generator until the winning value has exceeded an upper value, or fallen below a lower limit.
