现参照图1A,游戏者12使用带有视频显示器18和键盘20的游戏计算机14。 Referring now to Figure 1A, a player using the gaming computer 12 having a video display 18 and a keyboard 20 of 14. 游戏计算机14可以是个人家用计算机、膝上计算机或手持式个人数字助理装置,后者可以是也可不是由下注机构供应的专用游戏装置或多媒体装置(也即日本nintendo或类似装置,它和电视机或类似设备一起使用)。 Game computer 14 may be a personal home computer, laptop or handheld personal digital assistant devices, which may not be supplied by the betting mechanism dedicated game device or multimedia device (i.e. nintendo Japan or the like, and it used with a television or similar device). 游戏计算机14可以设置在远处而非当地,可设置在下注机构16处,也可设置在其他机构处(例如彩票发售处)。 Gaming computer 14 may be provided at a distance rather than local, can be set at 16 betting agencies, it can also be provided at other institutions (such as lottery tickets on sale at). 设置在下注机构处16的游戏计算机14仍可认为是“远程的”,这是为了此处的公开和权利要求的目的。 Gaming computer 16 provided at the betting mechanism 14 can still be considered "remote", which for purposes of the disclosure herein and the appended claims. 预计赌场可以在赌场所在的旅馆内向游戏者提供专用游戏计算机14,后者可以在赌场的实际范围内也可在实际范围外用来进行赌博。 Casino games can be expected to provide a dedicated computer in a hotel casino located within 14 player, which can also be used outside the actual range within the range of actual casino gambling. 向游戏者12提供由下注机构装备的游戏计算机14,其主要优点是有更大的安全性,尤其是使对如计算机磁盘驱动器那样的数据存储介质的非授权访问更难于进行。 12 provided to the player by the gaming computer equipment 14 betting agency, its main advantage is greater security, especially on the data storage medium, such as unauthorized access to computer disk drives more difficult to carry out. 另外,在专用游戏计算机内,键盘20的键可以指定为具有特定功能并完成一定命令(如专用于“21点”的键可以带有标记为“打中我”(hit me)、“站立”(stand)、“购买保险”(purchase in-surance),等),游戏者可利用它们在由下注机构16所提供的不同游戏项目中加以选择,进行赌博。 Further, in a dedicated gaming computer, the keyboard 20 keys may be specified as having a specific function and a certain command is completed (e.g., dedicated to "21:00" key may be marked as "hit me" (hit me), "standing" (stand), "buy insurance" (purchase in-surance), etc.), the player can use them to choose among different games by the betting agency 16 projects offered in gambling. 游戏计算机14运行特定的游戏软件22,后者包括游戏程序24、做庄程序26和可供选用的决算程序27。 Gaming computer 14 running a particular game software 22, which includes a game program 24, the program PLAY 26 and 27 are available in the accounts of the program. 游戏软件22可以预先安装在由下注机构16提供的专用游戏计算机上;可以预先安装在由下注机构提供的防篡改读/写数据存储介质装置28中,后者如图3所示那样和用作游戏计算机14的个人计算机接口;或直接由游戏者安装在个人计算机上。 The game software 22 can be pre-installed on a dedicated gaming computer provided by the wagering mechanism 16; may be installed in advance in the tamper-proof read mechanism provided by the wagering / write data storage media device 28, which as shown in Figure 3 and a personal computer 14 used as a game computer interface; or directly by the player on a personal computer. 另外,游戏软件22还可装在防篡改插入式数据存储介质模块上,后者和用作游戏计算机14的常用多媒体装置一起工作,这将在后面更详细地描述。 Further, the game software 22 may also be mounted on a tamper-proof plug-in data storage media module, a multimedia device which is used to work together and used as a game computer 14, which will be described later in more detail.

重要的是下注机构16必须能够确定软件本身或它上面的数据曾否被复制过、篡改过或用任何方式改变过,否则游戏者可以复制多份而不断地和相同的盘游戏,直至这些复制盘中的一个盘成为赢家,或者游戏者能改变软件本身,试图去控制结局、输或赢、或是它们的组合,就是说,不诚实的游戏者12这样来修改游戏软件22的软件码,以致软件能产生一个结局,比机率主宰的结局更多(例如在轮盘赌仿真中,使轮盘更经常地停在更有利的数目上)。 It is important to be able to determine the mechanism 16 bet software itself or the data on it ever been duplicated, tampered with or changed in any way, otherwise the game can keep multiple copies while the same plate game until they a disk copy disk to be a winner, or the player can change the software itself, trying to control the outcome, win or lose, or a combination thereof, that is, 12 so dishonest players to modify the software game software code 22 , so that the software can generate an outcome, the outcome of more than dominate probability (e.g., in the roulette simulation, so that the wheel more often stopped in the more favorable number). 这可以通过下注实现:整个替换软件,或修改程序中一定行数的程序码;其手段或是物理手段或是施加类似高强度电磁幅射(例如高频场)那样的某些外加影响。 This can be achieved by the bet: the entire replacement software, or modify the program in a certain line of program code number; which means either a physical means applied to or similar high intensity electromagnetic radiation (e.g., high-frequency fields) as the influence of some applied. 当然,最安全的系统是如图2所示的联机方案,游戏软件22放在下注机构的建筑内的游戏计算机中。 Of course, the most secure system is an on-line embodiment shown in Figure 2, the game software on the gaming computer 22 in building bodies in the betting. 防止篡改的安全措施的最困难的情况是在有些实施例中下注机构向游戏者12提供用在远处游戏计算机14上的软件,或提供专用游戏计算机14本身(例如PDA)。 The most difficult case of security measures to prevent tampering means is provided with a bet on the remote gaming computer 14 to the player software in some embodiments, 12, or provide a dedicated gaming computer 14 itself (e.g., PDA). 在这方面,可以提供不同的保证安全的手段。 In this regard, we can provide different means of ensuring safety.

在一种应用例中,软件引导游戏计算机通过磁盘驱动器读入特定磁盘的独特的磁标记,可以在该特定磁盘上安装游戏软件22,并通过磁盘驱动器将游戏软件22加密,以便下注机构通过解密来发现盘上的数据的非授权复制。 In one application example, the software boot gaming computer reads the unique magnetic markers specific disk by the disk drive can install the game software 22 on a particular disk, by the disk drive gaming software 22 is encrypted so that a bet means by decryption to discover unauthorized copying of data on the disc. 另一方案是,可将插入式装置和磁盘驱动器接口,以读入一部分磁盘内容去获取盘的独特的磁标记,下注机构16在支付现金前可将该加密数据进行登记或获取之。 Another embodiment is the device type and can be inserted into the disk drive interface, a portion of the contents of the disk to read the unique magnetic mark to acquire the disc, betting mechanism 16 may be registered before the encrypted data of cash or obtain.

在另一个实施例中,如图13所示原理图中,游戏软件22位于游戏计算机14内的芯片23上(也即由下注机构16提供专用装置时)。 In another embodiment, the schematic diagram in FIG. 13, the chip 14 in the gaming computer game software 22 is 23 (i.e. providing a dedicated device 16 when the betting mechanism). 芯片23可放在一个实际盒子84中,后者和任何外部数据端口连接都隔离开,并且后者无法访问芯片。 Chip 23 may be placed in a real box 84, the latter and any external data port connection are isolated, and the latter can not access the chip. 在示范性实施例中,芯片23可放在特殊封装中、隔绝物中、包装中或类似物86中,以便发现任何试图移去或篡改芯片23的企图。 In an exemplary embodiment, the chip 23 may be placed in a special package, was isolated, the package 86 or the like, in order to detect any attempt to tamper with or attempt to remove the chip 23. 因此,下注机构16可以立即确认游戏者是否篡改了游戏软件以及,如果发现这类篡改,它可以拒绝游戏者任何赢钱要求和/或将来使用信贷金的企图。 Therefore, betting mechanism 16 can immediately confirm whether the player tampered with a game software and, if we find this type of tampering, it can reject any winning player's requirements and / or future attempt to use credit payments.

在图14所示原理图的又一个实施例中,在自测试过程中可从软件码的一定特性中得到独特的数学属性。 Embodiment, may be obtained from the mathematical properties of certain unique properties in the software code in the schematic of still another embodiment shown in FIG. 14 in self-test process. 为完成该测试,软件码的特性是保密的而只有下注机构16才知道(也即,例如用软件码的第476至655行中各位的和为基础来构成校验十进制位类型算法)。 To complete the test, the characteristics of the software code is confidential and only know betting mechanism 16 (i.e., for example of from 476 to 655 lines of software code, and constituted the bits in the check digit type algorithm based on the decimal). 另一种方案是,自测试可检验指令码中以某种预定随机方式分布的特殊码,而该随机方式只有下注机构16知道。 Alternatively, the self-test can verify special codes in some predetermined instruction code is randomly distributed, which means 16 in a random manner known only to bet.

在图15A所示原理图中和上面不同的方案中,那些只有下注机构16知道的外部键可用于断续地或连续地检验软件码是否已经被篡改过或正在被篡改,使被改变的软件误操作并停止计算机14中的游戏应用软件。 In the schematic shown in FIG. 15A above different embodiment, only those bets external key mechanism 16 can be used to know intermittently or continuously verify whether the software code has been tampered with or is being tampered with, altered so software malfunction and stop playing computer application software 14. 这可用几种方法实现,包括但不局限于下列方法:(1)从下注机构16送出一个连续编码的或加密的外部信号(例如高频信号),由游戏计算机内的接收装置88所接收,接着在该游戏计算机14中将这类信号译码或解密并送入游戏软件22(图15B);(2)游戏者12具体地输入断续的信息码(图15C);或(3)使用由防篡改时钟89提供的内部产生的时钟信号(图15D)。 This can be achieved in several ways, including but not limited to, the following methods: (1) feeding a continuous encoded or encrypted 16 from the betting mechanism external signal (e.g., high-frequency signals) received by the receiving means 88 in the gaming computer , followed by the game computer 14 will decrypt and decode such signals into the gaming software 22 (FIG. 15B); (2) the player 12 intermittently particular input code information (FIG. 15C); or (3) using the internal clock 89 provides a clock signal generated (FIG. 15D) by the anti-tampering. 在这种情形下,芯片23或甚至于游戏计算机14(如它由下注机构16供给)都可加以屏蔽,隔开电磁干扰,以防止非授权的人员企图用电磁幅射来影响游戏软件。 In this case, or even a chip 23 (e.g., feed mechanism 16 which consists of betting) gaming computer 14 can be shielded, electromagnetic interference spaced to prevent an unauthorized person attempts to use electromagnetic radiation to affect the game software. 使用外部键时,可以用也可不用加密方法来保护它们,以防游戏者12假造它们。 When using the external key may be used without encryption to protect them against counterfeit player 12 thereof.

除使用外部键外,还可让游戏软件22从外部来源得到数据,以便发挥功能。 In addition to using external keys, but also let the game software 22 to get data from external sources in order to function. 例如,游戏软件22可使用无线通信或类似的随机数流(可能是加密的),程序调用这些随机数,将它们作为基础,以可预测或不可预测的方式来选择下注结局。 For example, the game software 22 may use a wireless communication or the like stream of random numbers (possibly encrypted), the program calls these random numbers, they are as a basis to predict or unpredictable manner can be selected bet outcome. 这种外部输入可包含在防篡改插入式装置或模块中,后者和游戏计算机14相接口。 Such external input may be included in the tamper resistant module or plug-in device, and the game computer 14 which interfaces.

防止欺骗性地修改游戏软件22的企图的另一方法是使用决算程序27,后者只能由下注机构16使用。 Another method of preventing fraudulent attempts to modify the gaming software 22 is the use of the program accounts 27, the latter can only be used by the betting mechanism 16. 为防止假造的检查跟踪,决算程序37可以,例如,建立几十个或甚至上百个数据串(例如,在轮盘赌的仿真中,相应于每一次轮盘旋转的数据串),这些数据全都记录下来,如果下注机构16怀疑游戏软件22被篡改时,就可以用这些数据串来校验。 Audit trail of preventing counterfeiting, settlement program 37 may, for example, the establishment of dozens or even hundreds of data strings (e.g., the roulette simulation, data strings corresponding to each of the rotation of the wheel), these data all recorded, if the bet game software 22 suspected mechanism 16 has been tampered with, it can be used to check these data strings.

熟悉本门技术的人应知道,游戏软件22可如此安排,使得字母数字码的数据串可用于发现游戏者12对软件、盘或模块的任何篡改,该数据串可预先装入每个游戏计算机14,可在盘上装好,也可在插入式不可复制的模块上装好。 Skilled in the art should know that, the game software 22 can be arranged such that the data string of alphanumeric codes may be used to find the game in 12 software, disk or any tampering module, the data string may be pre-loaded into each gaming computer 14, the disc may be good tops, tops may not be good in the plug-in module is copied. 这种情况下,每个游戏计算机14或模块可以有不同的码顺序,而下注机构16则保存这些码的副本。 In this case, each gaming computer 14 or module may have a different code sequence, but the betting mechanism 16 copies of the codes saved. 这些码用作每件游戏活动的结局的随机性的基础,因此能在检验篡改时用作证据。 These codes are used as the basis of random outcome of each game activity, and therefore can be used as evidence in the test tampering. 换句话说,特定的码安排可以对应于下注活动的一定结局(例如轮盘停在“5”上)。 In other words, a specific arrangement of codes may correspond to a certain outcome of a wagering event (e.g., the wheel stops at "5"). 即使下注机构16知道这些码,后者是排列成保证得到随机结局的—可以由独立的第三者检验的东西。 Even betting agencies 16 know these codes, which are arranged in a random guaranteed outcome - what can be tested by an independent third party. 如果游戏者想办法修改游戏软件,则将改变的软件码和只有下注机构16知道的原版本比较,即可发现篡改。 If the player find a way to modify the game software, will change the software code and only 16 betting agencies know the original version comparison, it can be found tampered with.

作为防止游戏者欺骗的另一个手段,可以使用“双随机性”元件,它要求游戏者12在每次选择,或者在游戏计算机14上想要的响应时按动一个键两次,用选择之间的时间间隔(即以毫秒计)来寻址编码在对应的软件码中的一个特定的预编程的随机结局。 As another means of preventing player spoofing, can use the "dual randomness" element, in which each player is requested to select 12 or pressing a button twice in response to a desired game on the computer 14, by selecting the the time interval between (i.e., in milliseconds) used to address a particular outcome of a random encoded pre-programmed in the corresponding software codes.

游戏程序24允许游戏者对众多下注机会中的任何一个下注,包括游戏项目、结局不定的未来公共活动、或技巧游戏(如填字游戏)。 Game program 24 allows players to bet on any one of a number of betting opportunities, including games project, the outcome uncertain future public events, or games of skill (such as crossword puzzles). 游戏项目是在游戏计算机14上由游戏程序24根据常规技术创立的,它们包括但不局限于普通的赌场下注项目,如21点、双骰子赌、轮盘赌、扑克、吃角子老虎机或类似项目。 Game project is on the 1424 computer game created by the game program according to conventional techniques, including, but not limited to ordinary casino bets projects, such as blackjack, craps bet, roulette, poker, slot machines or similar project. 每项游戏向游戏者12提供机会,以便对给定的下注活动中的一项或更多个下注点上押下赌注,而这些下注点是由该游戏的规则来确定的。 Each game offers to 12 players the chance to bet on a bet on a given betting activities or more betting points, and these points are bet by the rules of the game is determined. 这将在下面更详细地讨论。 This will be discussed in more detail below.

游戏程序24可在一些结局不定的未来公共活动项目上接受赌注,例如这些项目可以是足球赛或拳击赛那样的体育比赛,也可以是国家举办的或其他彩票项目。 Game program 24 can accept bets on the outcome of some uncertain future public activities, such as those items may be football or boxing match sports game like that, it can be a lottery held by the state or other items. 要做到这点可以和下注机构16建立口头联系或电子通信联系,以便放置、登记和确认赌注。 To do this contact may be established orally or electronic communication links and betting mechanism 16, in order to place, register and confirm bets. 赌注放置在游戏计算机14上,后者产生信息码,以便向下注机构16登记。 Bets placed on the gaming computer 14, which generates code information, to register 16 to bet mechanism. 这个码由下注机构16打上时间标记,利用适当的软件指令来形成加密码,从而将赌注锁定或固定下注时间,其目的是为了明确适当的偿付。 Betting mechanism 16 of this code by the time stamped to form encrypted using appropriate software instructions to lock or secure the bets the bet time, its purpose is to define appropriate payment. 这种方法将在下面详细描述。 This method will be described in detail below. 类似地,技巧游戏例如填字游戏可如下实现:将完成的时间打上日期/时间标记,以便稍后根据完成该游戏的第一个游戏者来支付奖金。 Similarly, skill games such as crossword puzzles can achieve the following: the completion time stamped date / time stamp, to be paid out later to complete the first player of the game.

做庄程序26使游戏者12可使用可用的信贷金来下注,以及“兑付”来兑现任何赌博赢金。 PLAY program 26 enables the player 12 can use the available credit to bet gold, and "honor" to honor any gambling winnings. 在某些实施例中,做庄程序26使游戏者易于从下注机构16购买信贷金,这些信贷金用码的形式“装”入游戏计算机14。 In certain embodiments, the PLAY program 26 enables the player to bet easily purchased from gold credit mechanism 16, which form the gold credit code "loaded" into the gaming computer 14. 另一种方案是,如图1B所示,做庄程序能从电子读卡机91接受指令,该读卡机91和正常方式下的信用卡或借方卡93是兼容的,或者做庄程序可从插入式信贷模块90接受信贷金。 Alternatively, as shown, PLAY a program from the electronic card reader 91 accepts an instruction in Figure 1B, the card reader 91 and a credit card or debit card 93 is in the normal mode compatible, or from a program PLAY plug-in credit module 90 accepts credit payments.

作为信贷全购买/兑现过程中保证安全的一个方法,做庄程序26或专门的加密/解密装置提供大家熟知类型的加密和解密算法29(例如使用一个公共密钥),以便将游戏者12和赌场16间交换的一定的数字字母码加密和解密,这些数字字母码是输入到游戏计算机14和下注机构计算机30和由它们产生的。 As later full credit / cash during a method for ensuring safety, PLAY program 26 or a dedicated encryption / decryption device provides encryption and decryption algorithms well known type 29 (e.g., using a public key), and so that the player 12 16 casino certain alphanumeric codes exchanged encryption and decryption, the alphanumeric codes are input to the game computer 14 and the computer 30 and the wagering generated by the mechanism thereof. 这些码在游戏者12和下注机构38的代理人之间通过电话40进行交换。 These codes are exchanged between the agent 40 through telephone 12 and the player bets mechanism 38. 名词“代理人”包括自动式电话或类似系统,后者通过按钮电话36产生用于和游戏者12通信的计算机式指令,从而提示游戏者12通过按下适当的数字或符号键向下注机构16送回响应。 The term "agent" includes an automatic telephone system or the like, which generates computerized instructions for communication and the player 12 through the telephone buttons 36, thereby prompting the game player 12 by pressing the appropriate numbers or symbols to key mechanism bet 16 sent back a response. 这些产生的指令可由下注机构计算机30根据大家熟知的技术通过电话来提供。 These instructions can be generated by computer means 30 according to the bet of well-known techniques by telephone.

下注机构计算机30具有包括做庄程序35和决算程序37在内的游戏软件33。 Betting mechanism 30 having a computer program comprising PLAY 35 and 37 accounts including game software program 33. 计算机30或者包括专门装置或软件,或者和它们通信,从而实现只有下注机构16知道的加密和解密算法39,后者用于将这些码加密和解密。 Or specialized computer 30 includes means or software, or communicates with them, thereby achieving betting mechanism 16 only known encryption and decryption algorithms 39, which is used to encrypt and decrypt these codes. 这样一来,下注机构16允许经过审查的游戏者12在远处购买和兑现信贷金。 As a result, the bet after the player mechanism 16 allows the review of 12 purchases and cash credit gold in the distance. 通过交换加密码来购买和兑现这种信贷金的步骤序列将有更详细地描述。 Such credit and cash to purchase made through the exchange of encrypted sequence of steps will be described in more detail below.

图4描述了在脱机实施例中在下注之前必需的起动和登记序列的流程图,这是使用本发明的正常过程。 FIG. 4 depicts a flow chart of start-up and registration sequence in the previous embodiment bet required offline embodiment, which is a normal procedure using the present invention. 首先游戏者12向下注机构16登记多项不同的个人信息,并获得一个数字字母个人标识码32。 First, the registration number of the player 12 to wager different personal information means 16, and obtained a 32 alphanumeric personal identification number. 下注机构16向游戏者12提供如上所述的由游戏程序24和做庄程序26组成的游戏软件22,同时还提供数字字母软件标识码34。 Betting mechanism 16 described above is provided to the player by the game program 24 and 12 PLAY game software program 26 consisting of 22, while also providing an alphanumeric software identification code 34. 游戏软件22可由第三者独立地测试、检验和放在密封信封中的数据存储介质上提供出来。 Gaming software 22 may be a third party independent testing, inspection and provided on the sealed envelopes out of the data storage medium. 这种数据存储介质可包括硬盘、软盘、CD—ROM和类似设备。 This data storage medium may include a hard disk, a floppy disk, CD-ROM and the like. 接着下注机构16提供数字字母起动标识码33,供游戏者12利用来启动游戏软件22。 Betting mechanism 16 then provides an alphanumeric start code 33, 12 for the player to start the game by using the software 22. 还有一种可选方案是,游戏计算机14可包括声音识别装置,例如声音芯片或声音识别软件,以便识别游戏者声音中独特的特性,从而拒绝任何非授权用户的使用。 Another alternative is that the game computer 14 may include a voice recognition device, for example, a sound chip or voice recognition software to identify the player's unique voice characteristics, to reject any non-authorized users. 这种硬件和/或软件是技术中已知的。 This hardware and / or software known in the art. 游戏软件22被编程为向游戏者12提示,询问当前操作是为练习目的还是为了下注。 Game software is programmed to 22 12 to prompt the player to ask the current operation is to exercise or for the purpose of betting. 如这是练习操作,游戏程序24产生众多的游戏项目,并且确认这些项目仅只用于练习。 As this exercise is to operate, the game program 24 generates a large number of game projects, and these projects only been confirmed for practice. 如果游戏者12选择要从事赌博,做庄程序26将允许实际下注到一定程度,即对应于游戏者帐号内有足够的可用的下注信贷金的程序。 If the players choose to engage in gambling 12, 26 PLAY program will allow real bets to a certain extent, that corresponds to have enough free betting credit payments program in the player account. 如信贷金不足,则游戏者12必须和下注机构16接触并执行下面描述的购买信贷金序列。 Such as credit gold shortage, the player must touch and betting agencies 12 and 16 described below are performed purchasing gold credit sequence. 上面提到,游戏计算机14可以是也可不是和下注机构计算机30联机的。 As mentioned above, the game computer 14 may also not be betting agencies and 30 computer online. 如游戏计算机14是脱机的,则在赌博地点上有更大灵活性,即游戏者实际上可在任何场所进行赌博。 As gaming computer 14 is offline, there is greater flexibility in the gambling place, that the player can actually gambling in any place. 在典型实施例中,在游戏者12和代理人38之间交换的一串加密通信用数字字母码允许游戏者在下注机构16管理下在远处购买和兑现信贷金,而不在乎在游戏计算机14和下注机构计算机30之间并无电子链路。 In an exemplary embodiment, the series of encrypted communication exchanges between player 12 and the agent 38 allows the player with the purchase and cash code alphanumeric characters in the distance at the gold credit management bet means 16, but not with the gaming computer 14 betting mechanism between the computer 30 and no electronic link. 另一方案是,游戏计算机可通过通信链路29与下注机构计算机30联网,以使下注机构计算机30可以监视和控制远程游戏计算机上发生的全部或部分活动。 Another embodiment is a computer game network link 2930 and through communication computer means betting, bets mechanism so that the computer 30 can monitor and control all or part of activity occurring on the remote gaming computer.

当游戏者12接触下注机构16时,他或她经历称之为握手识别的序列,由下注机构检验游戏者的标识码。 When a player bets the contact mechanism 16 12 when he or she experiences called handshake sequence identification, test code by the game's betting agency. 在这方面,正如图5流程图所描述的,首先由游戏者12在电话36上呼叫下注机构16,接着由用电话40通信的代理人38查询游戏者12的独特的个人标识码32和软件标识码34。 In this regard, as described in the flowchart of FIG. 5, first by 12 bets on the phone 36 calls the player mechanism 16, followed by a 38 queries the agent 40 to communicate the player unique telephone personal identification 32 and 12 software identification code 34. 代理人38将这些码输入计算机30,后者向游戏者12提供所产生的加密握手码42,用于向游戏计算机14输入。 By these codes into the computer 38 to 30, which provides the player 12 to the generated cryptographic handshaking code 42, computer 14 for input to the game. 游戏计算机14将握手码42解密,并产生一个加密识别响应码44,将它提供给下注机构16。 The gaming computer 14 decrypts handshake code 42 and generates an encrypted recognition response code 44, supplies it to the betting mechanism 16. 代理人38将识别响应码44输入计算机30,后者将识别响应码44解密,以便检验游戏者12的标识码和确认已向游戏者12注册的特定游戏软件22正在使用中。 By 38 identification code 44 in response to input into the computer 30, which decrypts the identification response code 44 to verify player identification code 12 and the player has confirmed that the specific gaming software 22 registered in use 12. 被审查过的游戏者12接着适当地和赌场交互应答。 It has been reviewed in 12 games and then appropriately interact casino response.

图6是用于描述脱机实施例中购买信贷金序列的第一实施例的流程图。 FIG 6 is a flowchart of a first embodiment of the Gold sequence embodiment described later off-line credit for the embodiment. 游戏者12首先和下注机构接触并通过在图5中叙述和上面解释过的握手序列建立他或她的标识码。 First 12 players and betting agencies contacted and described by Figure 5 and explained above handshake sequence to establish his or her identification code. 代理人38从计算机30获得加密的做庄程序启动码46,并将同样的码提供给游戏者12,从而使游戏者12可以使用游戏计算机14中做庄程序26的购买/兑现信贷金功能。 By activation code 38 from computer 46 to obtain the encrypted program PLAY 30, and supplies the same code to the player 12, 12 so that the player can use the game computer 14 for later program PLAY 26 / gold cash credit function. 接着游戏者12输入所请求的下注信贷金数量。 Then the number of the player bets 12 credits gold input requested. 为安全起见,做庄程序26利用个人标识码32和软件标识码34以及加密算法来产生信贷金请求码48,后者包含了所请求的信贷金数量的数值,并且对游戏者12和或她的游戏软件22讲来是独特的。 For safety reasons, the program PLAY 32 and 26 using a personal identification code 34 and software identification code encryption algorithm to generate her gold credit request code 48, which contains the values ​​requested credit amount of gold and 12 to the player and or 22 speak to game software is unique. 游戏计算机14向游戏者12显示信贷金请求码48,并将该码48提供给代理人38,以便输入给下注机构计算机30。 Gold gaming computer 14 displays the credit request code 48 and the code 48 provides to the agent 38 to the computer 30 input to the betting mechanism 12 to the player. 计算机30应用只有下注机构知道的解密键将信贷金请求码48加以解密,从而了解到游戏者12请求的信贷金数量。 Computer 30 bet institutional applications only know the decryption key request code 48 gold credit will be decrypted and thus learned that the number of credit gold player 12 requests. 代理人口头上向游戏者12确认该数量。 Acting head of population to confirm the number of players to 12. 下注机构16然后决定是否提供所请求的全部或部分信贷金。 16 betting agencies then decide whether to provide all or part of the requested credit gold. 如信贷金请求被拒绝,则向游戏者12送出加密的重新启动码50,后者由游戏计算机14加以解密,使游戏者12可以使用可用的信贷金结存来继续下注(根据图8所叙述的顺序和下面所描述内容,游戏者12也可选择另一方案,即兑现任何赌博赢金)。 The gold credit request is denied, the restart sending the encrypted code 50 to the player 12, which is to be decrypted by the gaming computer 14, so that the player 12 can use the available credit balance gold continues bet (as described in accordance with FIG. 8 order and in the following description, the game player 12 can select another program, i.e. to honor any gambling winnings). 如果信贷金请求被部分或全部同意,则进程按照下注机构16愿意卖给游戏者12的下注信贷金数量继续进行。 If gold credit request is partially or totally agree, the process according to betting agencies willing to sell 16 gold bet the amount of credit the player 12 continues. 计算机30产生一个新的加密信贷金码52,将它提供给游戏者12,以便通过游戏软件22的做庄程序26将一笔待用的所请求数量的信贷金装入游戏者的游戏计算机14内。 The computer 30 generates an encrypted new credit code 52 gold, it will be provided to the player 12, 26 so that the sum of the standby computer game gold credit amount charged by the player 14 requests the PLAY game software program 22 Inside. 游戏者接着将新信贷金码52输入到游戏计算机14中,后者将该码解密,进而了解到增加到游戏者12的可用的信贷金结存中的新的信贷金的确切数量。 Then the player credit of the new Gold code 52 is input to a game computer 14, which decrypts the code, and further understand the exact amount of new credit increased gold gold credit available to the player in the balance 12. 新的信贷金数量作为待用金额向游戏者12显示,但它目前还不能用。 The number of new credit amount of gold as a stand-by player 12 to display, but it is not currently possible. 接着做庄程序26产生加密的信贷金待用码54,后者部分依据于新的待用信贷金的当时数量而产生。 PLAY program 26 then generates an encrypted credit stand Gold code 54, the latter part of the time is generated based on the number of new standby credit gold. 游戏者12向代理人38提供此信贷金待用码54,代理人38再将它提供给下注机构计算机30,后者再将信贷金待用码解密,进而正面地和不可辩驳地验证特定数量的所请求信贷金已装入了游戏者12的做庄程序26。 The player 12 provides this credit code gold stand 54 to the agent 38, the agent 38 then supplies it to the computer wagering mechanism 30, which then gold credit standby code decoder, thereby positively and irrefutably verify that a particular gold credit amount requested is loaded in the player pLAY program 26 12. 下注机构计算机30再产生一个加密的信用金投放码56。 Betting mechanism computer 30 then generates an encrypted credit code 56 serving gold. 该信贷金投放码56提供给游戏者12,后者将它输入到游戏计算机14中。 The code 56 serving gold credit provided to the player 12, which enters it into gaming computer 14. 该一定数量的待用信贷金即被投放,供游戏者12使用。 Stand-by credit of the gold put in a certain number of ie, for use in 12 games. 做庄程序接着产生一个加密的信贷金投放验证码58,后者由游戏者12提供给代理人38。 PLAY program then generates an encrypted credit delivery gold codes 58, 38 which is provided to the agent 12 by the player. 代理人38将信贷金投放验证码58输入到计算机30中,后者将该码解密并产生一个加密的程序重新启动码60。 By 38 serving credit gold codes 58 into the computer 30 which decrypts the code and generates a code encrypted program 60 restarts. 游戏者12接到程序重新启动码60后,将它输入到游戏计算机14中,于是游戏程序24即重新运行,以供使用。 After the player restarts code 12 to 60, it will be input to the game computer 14, game program 24 then re-run, ie, for use. 与此同时,下注机构16要求游戏者12为所购买的信贷金数值付款,付款方式系由游戏者和赌场双方互相商定。 At the same time, wagering requirements of 16 institutions in 12 games for the gold value of the purchased credit payment, payment system was agreed mutually by the player and the casino. 例如,可以用信用卡付款,可以授权进行银行转账,或其他支付形式或延期支付都可用来向赌场交换所买信贷金。 For example, you can pay by credit card, bank transfer can authorize, or other forms of payment or deferred payment of credit may be used to buy the gold exchange to the casino. 如果在整个过程中任何一处一个或更多个不同的加密码和赌场加密软件所预期结果不匹配,则游戏者将无法使用这笔信贷金。 If any one or more of a different encryption code encryption software and the casino does not match the expected results throughout the process, the player will not be able to use this credit payments. 这种情况下游戏软件22即被禁止运行,直至争端解决时为止。 In this case the game software 22 shall be barred from running until the dispute is resolved upon. 就这样,由游戏计算机14和赌场计算机30所产生的不同码的每一项的正确性都用于正面地肯定游戏者12收到的信贷金的价值和数量,肯定信贷金已投放可供游戏者12使用。 In this way, the accuracy of each of the different codes from computer games and 14 casino generated by the computer 30 are used to positively affirm credit received 12 gold player of value and quantity, certainly it has been put on credit gold for game in 12 use.

可以理解信贷金也可按预定数量提供给游戏者12,预先安放在由下注机构16提供的专门游戏计算机14上(例如,个人数字助理)。 Gold can also be appreciated that credit a predetermined amount is provided to the player 12, previously placed on a dedicated gaming computer provided by the wagering mechanism 1614 (e.g., personal digital assistant). 另一种方案是,游戏者12可以获得一个带有一定数量的授权的信贷金的磁盘或模块90,该信贷金被“装载”入游戏计算机14的做庄程序,以便下注,直至这笔信贷金额用完时止。 Alternatively, the gold credit the player 12 can be obtained with a certain number of authorized disk or module 90, the gold credit is "loaded" into the computer game program PLAY 14 to bet until this only when the credit amount is used up. 还有一种方案,如图1C所示和上面所述,游戏者12只用他或她的信用卡93即可获得信贷金,其方式可以通过与代理人38的通信,也可以通过电子读卡装置91,后者用众所周知的技术连至发卡银行95。 Another embodiment, described above and shown in FIG. 1C, 12 player with his or her credit card 93 to obtain gold, which embodiment may communicate with the agent 38, or by an electronic card reading device 91, the latter using well-known techniques connected to the issuing bank 95.

在游戏者12获得下注信贷金后,他或她可在由游戏软件22提供的众多游戏项目的任何一个项目中选择下注点,并押下赌注。 After the players get 12 gold bet credit, he or she can choose to bet any point in a project many games project provided by the gaming software 22, and bet bet. 每个游戏都向游戏者12提供机会,供游戏者在本游戏适用的规则规定下对给定的下注活动中一个或多个不同下注点上押下赌注。 Each game will provide an opportunity to the player 12, who for a given game betting activities in a bet or wager bets on a number of different points in this game under the applicable rules. 例如,赌场的轮盘赌依据于小球在轮盘内滚动而选出的随机数的结局而提供一系列下注活动。 For example, according to the casino's roulette bets and offers a range of activities in the ball rolling and the outcome of the random number selected in the roulette. 轮盘每转一次就是一个单独的下注活动。 Roulette per revolution is a separate betting activities. 在该活动中,游戏者12可在许多不同下注点上押下赌注,这些下注点例如红色和黑色,单个数,一组数和类似情况。 In this event, the player 12 may bet on many different bet betting points, these points e.g. red and black bet, a single number, a group number and the like. 所有游戏者都要在每次下注活动中在轮盘转动之前下注。 All players must bet before the wheel rotates each betting activities.

图7A是用于叙述由游戏程序24所建立的游戏项目的下注序列的流程图,游戏程序24如下所述来运行。 7A is a flowchart of the bet by the game program sequence established game item description 24, 24 as the game program to run. 游戏者12首先进入游戏软件22的游戏程序24,并选择一种特定的游戏项目,以便下注。 First 12 players to enter the game software program 22 of the 24 games, and choose a specific game project to bet. 游戏者12可以如上所述对该游戏项目内一个或多个注动下注。 12 described above, the player can play items within one or more moving note bet. 游戏程序24提示游戏者,要求他或她确认已下赌注的放置位置和输入的下注总额。 Game program 24 prompts the player, ask him or her confirm the placement of bets and total bet input. 在赌注被确认之前,它们可以撤回或修改。 Before the bet is confirmed, they may be withdrawn or modified. 确认的典型做法是在定死所有赌注前由游戏者12输入确认码62。 A typical practice before confirmation is scheduled to die at all bets enter the confirmation code 62 12 by the player. 为安全起见,由游戏程序24提供的确认码62可以在每次下注时各不相同。 For safety reasons, the game program 24 provides a confirmation code 62 may vary at each bet. 它可以是一个简单的一位或两位数字字母码,输入到游戏程序24中,以确认为任何下注活动所押的每笔赌注都是所要押下的而且没有押在错误的下注点。 It can be a simple one or two alphanumeric code, enter the game program 24 in order to confirm any bet per bet betting activities are to be in charge and there is no point betting on the wrong bet. 在一些诸如吃角子老虎机那样的完全重复的游戏中或当全部赌注的总值不超过一定预定值时,可将游戏程序24如此安排,使确认码62更为简化,例如只按一个键。 In some slot machines, such as an exact duplicate of the game when the total value of bets or does not exceed a certain predetermined value, the game program 24 may be arranged such that the identification code 62 is more simplified, for example, a single button press. 在游戏者12输入确认码62后,根据该赌场游戏的规则,游戏程序24为一定可下注的活动(例如发牌、轮盘转动,等等)产生一个特定的结局。 After the game player 12 enter a confirmation code 62, in accordance with the rules of the casino game, the game program 24 may be constant bet activity (e.g. licensing, the wheel is rotated, etc.) to produce a particular outcome. 游戏程序24为每笔所下的赌注都确定一个结局(赢、输或平局),进行计算,然后在游戏计算机14上显示准备在这笔赌注上付给游戏者12的正确金额。 24 bets per game program is the outcome of a case are determined (win, lose or draw), is calculated and then displayed on the gaming computer 14 players ready to pay the correct amount on this 12 bet. 游戏者12可以选择敲入是/否码,或者接受全部赌注的支付结局,或者对任何游戏者12认为在某种意义上不正确的支付提出异议。 The player can choose to knock 12 yes / no code, or accept payment ending kitty, or for any 12 player challenge in a sense considered improper payments. 为处理争端,可以暂停下注过程,并且电话呼叫代理人38,要求解决问题,或者应用一些其他解决争端的手段。 To deal with the dispute, may suspend betting process, and 38 phone calls an agent, asked to solve the problem, or use some other means to resolve disputes. 一旦游戏者12接受该下注活动的决定,游戏软件22的做庄程序26对游戏者12的下注信贷金结存加上或减去正确的信贷金额。 Once a player decides to accept the bet 12 activities, game software program 22 PLAY 26 wager on the game's gold credit balance of plus or minus 12 right amount of credit. 游戏者12可对后面的下注活动重新开始下注过程,也可以结束赌博活动。 12 on the back of the player can bet betting process is resumed, it may also end gambling activities. 任何时候,游戏者12可以选择游戏程序24中的回顾模式,用来回顾游戏者12所下每笔赌注的数量和结局,这些都是按年月顺序安排的。 At any time, the player can choose to play 12 program 24 in review mode, the player to look back at 12 per bet number and outcome, which are arranged in chronological order. 任何时候,游戏者12可以通过信贷金兑现序列来兑现做庄程序26中所存下注信贷金结存的全部或一部分。 At any time, the player 12 can cash PLAY program 26 stored bet all or part of the credit balance of gold by gold cash credit sequence. 游戏程序24还能包括特定的内含指令,对赢金施加由下注机构决定的限制。 Game program 24 can also include specific contents instruction, imposing restrictions determined by the betting agency to win gold. 也可以预期将这种游戏软件22包含在其他产品如计算机或其他软件中,以提供奖金应用程序,后者可使一些不相干产品的买主能得到此包含的程序所规定的一些奖品(例如所奖励的奖金)。 This game can also be expected to be included in the 22 other software products such as computers or other software to provide bonuses application, which allows a number of disparate products, buyers can get some prizes under the procedures contained herein (such as the reward bonus).

图7B—7C是脱机实施例中诸如彩票那样的结局不定的未来公共活动的下注序列的流程图。 FIGS. 7B-7C are a flowchart of the wagering sequence of future public events, such as in the embodiment uncertain outcome of the lottery embodiment offline. 就描述彩票活动而言,这里下注机构称之为“彩票当局”。 It is described in terms of lotteries, betting agency here called "lottery authorities." 游戏者使用游戏软件22来选择特定的彩票活动(也即抽签),以便对它下注。 22 players using the game software to select specific lotteries (ie lottery), in order to bet on it. 接着游戏计算机14产生一张该特定彩票活动专有的“彩票”票样,同时游戏者选择所需下注点(也即号码)。 Next game computer 14 have a "lottery" lottery ticket that particular kind of a proprietary activity, while the player to select the desired bet point (ie number).

这里描述的典型彩票活动有两类,第一类是类似于普通抽奖活动的当场开彩,第二类是结局不定的未来活动(也即进行抽签)。 A typical lottery activities described here have two categories, the first category is similar to the spot draws general sweepstakes, the second is the outcome of uncertain future events (ie, the drawing of lots). 在当场开彩的例子中,对日期/时间的检验并不重要,因为主要是程序的即时输出决定了结局。 In the example on the spot color, the test date / time is not important, because the main output of the program is to determine the immediate outcome. 另一方面,对于未来活动,在一些实施例中下注的日期和时间是重要的。 On the other hand, for the future activities, the date and time the bet in some embodiments, is important. 熟悉技术的人员知道,游戏者12参加彩票活动的远程游戏安排可分为:(1)不登记系统(其中游戏者可不理会彩票当局而独立下注,下注不必向彩票当局登记,因游戏计算机14提供手段可对下注打上时间标记);或者(2)登记系统(其中游戏者12在远程游戏计算机14上选择下注点,但必须接着和彩票当局16接触,以便“登记”下注)。 Persons skilled in the art know that 12 players to participate in lotteries remote gaming arrangement can be divided into: (1) non-registration system (in which a player may be disregarded by the authorities and independent betting lottery, lottery bets do not have to register with the authorities, because computer games 14 may provide means for marking time stamped bet); or (2) registration system (in which a player bet from point 12 on the remote gaming computer 14, but then must contact the lottery authority 16 in order to "register" bet) .

在如图7B所叙述的不登记实施例中,用下列方法下注:游戏者12用他或她的个人标识码204向游戏计算机14的彩票应用程序作登录,该个人标识码204是游戏者12预登记时由彩票当局预先赋值的。 In FIG. 7B described embodiments without registration, betting the following manner: the player 12 with his or her personal identification code 204 for the login application lottery gaming computer 14, the personal identification code is the player 204 lottery authorities by the 12 pre-registered pre-assigned. 在这方面,在图2中已叙述过而在下面还将更详细地描述的加密/解密装置82可以用来防止未成年人使用彩票程序。 In this regard, in FIG. 2 already described will be encrypted in the following described in more detail with / decryption device 82 can be used to prevent minors use lottery program. 这种装置可以利用指纹或声音辨识硬件来进行附加检验。 Such a device can carry out additional tests using fingerprint or voice recognition hardware. 接着游戏者12选择一个特定的彩票游戏(例如抽数码赌)。 Then the player 12 to select a particular lottery game (such as digital smoke bet). 游戏者以常规方法选择所要的下注点206,游戏者在接收到合适的提示后可将他或她的选择加以确认。 Player in a conventional manner to select the desired bet 206 points, the player after receiving the appropriate prompt may be his or her choice to be confirmed. 游戏计算机14即产生一个加密的、压缩的多数位的票码208,用它来代表所选的下注点206,同时还产生一个不能假冒的日期/时间标记210。 I.e. gaming computer 14 generates an encrypted, compressed bit majority vote code 208, which is represented by the selected bet point 206, can also generate a fake date / time stamp 210. 也可选择这一方案,即这种票码208可包括个人标识码204或软件标识码212。 Alternatively this embodiment, i.e. this ticket 208 may include a personal identification code 204 or software identification code 212. 票码208存于游戏计算机14中,并只有彩票当局可将它解密,以证明它不是伪造的。 Ticket code 208 stored in the gaming computer 14, and only the lottery authorities can decrypt it, to prove that it is not a forgery. 如果需要,可利用游戏计算机14所带有的常用打印装置将代表加密票码中的游戏者的选择的实际“票”印出来。 If necessary, use a computer game brought some common printing device 14 will choose representatives encrypted ticket code in the game's actual "vote" printed out. 这个过程需要多少次就可重复多少次,以便参加多项彩票活动或在单项活动中挑选不同下注点。 This process needs to be repeated many times how many times you can, to participate in a number of sweeps or select a different bet points in the individual event. 这种安排允许下注活动独立于彩票当局16,不能假冒的日期/时间标记能保证不让游戏者12“在事后”篡改下注(也即抽签以后不允许游戏者改变所选号码)。 This arrangement allows wagering activity independent of the lottery authority 16, can not fake date / time stamp can promise not to let the player 12 "after the fact" tamper bet (ie after the ballot does not allow a player to change the selected number). 要兑现时,游戏者12向彩票当局16提供加密票码208,彩票当局16将票码解密,以获得所选下注点和下注日期/时间。 To honor the game's 12 lottery authorities to provide 16 encryption code 208 votes, 16 votes lottery authorities decryption code to obtain a selected point bets and bet the date / time. 赢金即以常规方式支付。 Winnings that is paid in the usual way. 可以预料当支付巨额赢金时要求游戏者12将实际装置送回到彩票当局16,接受检验。 12 requires the player to an actual device is returned to the lottery authority 16, when it is expected to accept the check when paying huge win gold.
