Abstract
A coin- or token-operated entertainment machine such as a fruit machine produces a symbol combination e.g. by random rotation of symbol- bearing reels (8) and a win indication is given if the combination is of a predetermined winning nature. There is also a jackpot feature whereby prize value is transferred between separate jackpot displays (18a, 18b, 18c) as successive games are played. On attaining a jackpot win, the player can receive a prize corresponding to one or more of the jackpots. The jackpot display may simulate movement of coins (21, 22) from one to the other of the jackpots (18a, 18b, 18c).
