Abstract

This technique allows active participation in the game by persons who are at a distance from the event. The condition for participation is that an appropriate amount of money has been made available to the bank by the participants. These paid-in amounts are stored in a main computer and can be recognised by the players via a code word or code number. The players can issue any desired order (bet) to the main computer via personal computers. Contact by speech and vision is provided via TV and telephone. When each game has finished, the main computer records the profit and loss statement. When the account stands at "0", further participation is immediately blocked. These games take place without access to the public. Independently, this system can be used for any public television event.
