Abstract

1,233,081. Chance apparatus. J. W. PROCTOR. 30 June, 1969 [28 June, 1968], No. 31109/68. Heading A6H. In an electrically operated machine of the fruit machine type, i.e. one in which a row of adjacent symbols are displayed after a game, means are provided permitting a selected symbol or symbols to be held during a number of consecutive games. The machine may include indicating means showing the periods during a series of games when the symbol may be held. The holding means may comprise circuitry, including relays, designed to override the usual machine circuitry which prevents the holding of symbols for more than one game. A relay may also be provided as a reset for the holding relay for use when a player wins a game. In one embodiment, the holding system of a conventional fruit-machine comprises circuitry adapted to energise a coil and associated stop 5 (Fig. 1) which coacts with a notched disc 3 fixedly and coaxially mounted upon a drive shaft 1 bearing a reel R having the symbols S marked thereon. In known machines this stop 5 may be held on for one game only after which a mechanism releases the stop permitting the reel to rotate, however, the circuitry of this embodiment (Figs. 2 and 3 not shown) is designed to override this "anti-hold" mechanism and allow the reel to be held over a series of games. A display box (Fig. 4) 109 may be provided having a plurality of transparent panels 110 each capable of being illuminated and each representing one (or more than one) game in a series of games. These panels are lit successively as games are played and indicate whether a player may hold a symbol during that game.
