Description

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • [0001]
    The present invention relates generally to lotto games, and more particularly to lotto games allowing player to choose bet combinations.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    Gambling has become very popular all over the world, especially recently. The U.S.A. and several European countries have been operating lotteries for many years. Traditional lotteries usually provide one possibility for gambling, based on the occurrence of a combination of a few numbers or symbols.
  • [0003]
    A lotto game that provides various possibilities for gambling can substantially increase revenues for a state and give people additional chances to win. It can also provide more entertainment for people and increase their interest while playing the game.
  • [0004]
    According to prior art, some methods and systems were previously proposed. RU2223805 proposes a lotto playing method and playing cards. This method is developed to increase entertaining effect due to construction with increased playing capacities. However, the method disclosed in RU2223805 is limited because it can be used only with “classical” cards. WO 92/16269 and US 2008/0015005 disclose methods for playing wagering game, which are developed to increase wagering opportunities and interest. However, these methods also can be used with classical cards and numbers. US 2007/0082721, US 2006/0073864, U.S. Pat. No. 6,079,713 and U.S. Pat. No. 5,100,139 disclose methods for playing game, which can be used for lotto games. However, all these methods are also using “classical” cards (shown in FIG. 1) and are not generalized to be played using other games such as chess, checkers (FIG. 15), mahjong and domino (FIG. 28).
  • [0005]
    U.S. Pat. No. 1,463,871 discloses a game, which is played according to the following rules: cards are drawn out of a deck at random, creating random sequence of suits. Many random sequences are created during the Lotto game: four sequences of cards of the same suit, 13 sequences of cards of the same value, sequence of suits and sequence of values of cards, which are created as derivatives of the said above sequences. Random sequences of cards of the same suit and cards of the same value provide various possibilities for betting, based on choosing combinations of cards of different suits and cards of different values, such as the first card of each suit, the first card of each value and others. In the game disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 1,463,871 the order of cards within each suit is of no importance. There is no mention of values of cards, but even assuming that it is implied in the idea of the game, the order of cards within each value is of no importance either. So, there are at most only two random sequences: of suits and of values of cards.
  • [0006]
    It is an object of the present invention to overcome the limitations of prior art.
  • [0007]
    It is another object of the present invention to provide a method, which can be used with a large number of games.
  • [0008]
    It is yet another object of the present invention to provide a method allowing a player to win a prize which is proportional to the complexity of his bets.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0009]
    The present invention discloses a method for playing a lotto game, according to one of the preferred embodiments of which, symbols constituting said game are 52 cards of a standard deck of playing cards, and wherein all cards are picked out at random from a deck in order to create random sequences and a player defines himself single cards, suits or values of cards, or more or less complex combinations, variations or permutations thereof to bet according to bet amount and a chance to win. In said method 24 random sequences of five different types are created: sequence of 52 single cards, four sequences of cards of the same suit, 13 sequences of cards of the same value, sequence of suits, which contains additional two sequences: of black suits and of red suits and sequence of values of cards, which contains additional two sequences: of values of picture cards and of values of non-picture cards. The arrangement of cards in four rows according to suit and 13 columns according to value of cards makes visual creation of said random sequences in the course of the game.
  • [0010]
    The disclosed method for playing a lotto game provides many possibilities for betting with a wide range of probabilities to win. Due to variety of possibilities the game can be implemented as a classical lottery, as a classical casino game or as a computer game.
  • [0011]
    In said method a dealer and a player can be humans or automated systems. Playing the game does not require any skills. Participants of the game can play against a house or against others.
