Description

    RELATED APPLICATION
  • [0001]
    This application claims priority to a corresponding provisional application U.S. Serial No. 60/317,945 filed Sep. 10, 2001 in the name of the applicant of this application.
  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    This invention relates generally to slot machines and methods therefor and, more particularly, to a slot machine having a plurality of reels or reel symbols that display a number on each reel, which, if matched to a set of previously selected or randomly generated numbers will result in a payoff to a user according to a pre-determined pay schedule. For every number on a reel that does not match a number previously selected or received, a roulette wheel or roulette wheel image will generate a new number to give the player an additional chance to match the original numbers on the reels.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0003]
    Gaming machines, such as slot machines and video poker machines, account for a majority of the gaming industry revenue in the State of Nevada, slot machines, both mechanical and video, which generally have one or more spinning reels, are the most classic gaming device, having existed for more than 100 years. Originally, a player would insert a coin into the slot machine and pull a handle or lever which would mechanically set the reels spinning. Usually the reels contained symbols of some kind, such as cherries, the number “7” and other pictures and numbers. Eventually the reels would stop spinning, leaving a row across the middle of symbols and/or numbers. If the combination of symbols and/or numbers corresponded to an advertised payout schedule, then the player would receive a corresponding payment.
  • [0004]
    Most present day slot machines are controlled by computer chips that control the random symbol/number generators in order to control the total payout of each machine. While some slot machines still have mechanical reels and handles, many have computer screens with digital reel images and buttons to initiate a new reel spin. In either case, a computer most often controls the selection of the symbols or numbers.
  • [0005]
    Many slot machines and other wagering games such as keno, bingo, roulette and lottery type games involve the pre-selection of numbers which, if matched with later-established numbers, result in a payout according to a pre-determined payout scale. For example, U.S. Pat. No. 4,756,531 issued to DiRe et al. shows a slot machine game in which a player selects up to a certain amount of numbers corresponding to the number of reels or indicators on the slot machine. The player then initiates the generation of numbers on the slot machine and is paid according to a payout schedule for matching pre-selected numbers with the numbers generated by the slot machine. U.S. Pat. No. 4,836,546 issued to DiRe et al. offers a player multiple opportunities to achieve a winning result. If a player selects a number that is subsequently shown on one of the reels, the player is eligible to “re-spin” other reels to try and obtain a number that matches one of the pre-selected numbers.
  • [0006]
    The prior art slot machines that offer a secondary play, or second chance to match the pre-selected numbers with the numbers on the reels, simply allow the player to “re-spin” the reels. Such an action is redundant and can lead to boredom. A slot machine that utilizes another game altogether for secondary play offers a player more variety and is more entertaining.
  • [0007]
    A need therefore existed for a new, exciting multiple-play gaming apparatus having a roulette wheel capable of generating numbers for secondary play.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0008]
    An object of the present invention is to provide a slot machine-type gaming device having a roulette wheel used to generate numbers for secondary play.
  • [0009]
    It is a further object of the present invention to provide a method for playing a gaming machine in which a player has the opportunity to use a roulette wheel to generate numbers for secondary play.
