Abstract

This invention relates generally to a chance ticket comprising an elongated composite strip which may be wrapped in roll form. The composite strip comprises a base strip whose longitudinal edges are coated with adhesive material after the central portion of the ticket is stamped with numbers at random by an ''''addressograph'''' machine. A top strip has longitudinal perforations along the inner border line of the base strip adhesive material and is adhered to the base strip. Therefore, upon tearing along the top perforations, a central portion of the top strip can be detached so that the numbers of the bottom strip will be exposed.

The composite strip comprises a base strip whose longitudinal edges are coated with adhesive material after the central portion of the ticket is stamped with numbers at random by an addressograph machine. A top strip has longitudinal perforations along the inner border line of the base strip adhesive material and is adhered to the base strip.

I2Clains, 2 Drawing Figures CHANCE TICKET This application is a continuation of Ser. No. 878,285, filed Nov. 20, 1969, and now abandoned.

This invention relates to a chance ticket having a plurality of random numbers normally covered from view.

Chance tickets, in the past, have included numbers which were concealed from view until a portion of the ticket length was stripped. However, these chance tickets have not been entirely satisfactory since they have been in individual form,- that is, separate tickets having different numbers.

An outstanding objection to such separate tickets is that some of the tickets can be removed from a pile by an unauthorized person, particularly winning numbers which are known by such person, who, sometimes may be even the operator of the game.

Another disadvantage of chance tickets of known construction is that they are relatively complicated in construction and involve serious problems in printing numbers at random in a predetermined sequence.

An object of the present invention is to provide a novel chance ticket which is devoid of the abovenamed disadvantages and which can be wrapped into -roll form, such as the well known theater admission tickets, and which includes adequate longitudinal space, centrally thereof, to enable placing numbers of large size and of high denomination when necessary.

A still further object of the present invention is to provide a novel method of manufacturing chance tickets comprising simultaneous fabrication of a plurality of strips in integral side-by-side relationship and in stamping such strips with numbers at random sequence while still in side-by-side relationship before severing the strips into separate rolls.

Other objects and advantages will become more apparent from a study of the following description taken with the accompanying drawing wherein:

FIG. 1 is a top view showing how a plurality of longitudinal strip tickets are manufactured while in roll form with strips integrally secured in side-by-side relation ship and from which roll finished tickets are stripped into elongated strip form to provide a single role of tickets, shown partially in FIG. 2;

Referring to FIG. 1 of the drawing, numeral 1 generally denotes a roll comprised of a plurality of separable strips 2 integrally secured together, side-by-side, during manufacture. Separate tickets may be torn along perforation 4 along which slots 10 are formed.

The various strip base portions 3, while integrally secured together along their sides as shown in FIG. 1, are inserted in an addressograph machine of well known type (not shown) in which the plates thereof have different numbers and are arranged in a random nonnurnerical manner but whose arrangement addressograph plates can be noted and recorded by authorized persons.

After the numbers 14 are imprinted along the central longitudinal portions of the base portions of the various strips, a top strip is superimposed and adhered onto the bottom strip by means of adhesive coatings 9 along the edges of the top strip. An alternative could be to provide the coating 9 on the bottom strip and adhering it to a plain face top strip.

A perforating wheel (not shown) will effect perforations along the inner borders of the adhesive material, so that upon picking one end of the central portion of the top strip and pulling, the central portion 5 will tear along the perforations 8 so as to expose the numbers concealed underneath thereof, as shown in FIG. 2.

After the composite strips are completed, the strips are severed longitudinally to form separate longitudinal strips each of which may be wrapped in the form of a roll.

An outstanding advantage of having the central portion of the strip tear along the entire length of each ticket instead of a portion only of such length, is that it will expose a larger area of the bottom strip so as to show larger denomination numbers, as well as numbers of sufficiently large size as to be readily seen even by those having poor eyesight.

Instead of an Addressograph machine the tickets may be printed by a stamping means in the form of a large diameter wheel having, along the perimeter individual replaceable stamps for each number (or letter) so that the order of the successive stamps on the perimeter of the wheel may be changed at random.

The tickets may be used for playing of games which provide chances and prizes for certain winning numbers that may be listed by the operator of the game of chance. This may be in the form of a door prize for each person who, upon paying admission obtains a ticket giving him a chance to win one of the door prizes.

Thus it will be seen that I have provided a novel ticket construction, and method of making the same, of a chance or gift ticket wherein the numbers are easily arranged in a random, non-numerical order of known sequence, and wherein the tickets may be easily stripped along the entire length of a central panel portion to expose numbers of large denominations and of large size.

While I have described and illustrated a single embodiment of my invention, it will be understood that this is by way of illustration only and that various changes and modifications may be made within the scope of my invention and the following claims.

I claim:

1. A chance roll of tickets comprising a two-ply longitudinal strip, one ply comprising a strip of tickets detachably secured together by lateral perforations and holes, the other ply comprising a covering strip adhered to said strip of tickets only along the entire longitudinal edge portions, leaving an unadhered central panel portion, and covering the entire surface of said strip of tickets including said perforations and holes, said central panel portion bearing indicia in random sequence from ticket to ticket, longitudinal perforations on only said covering strip at the inner border of the adhered edges and extending along the entire length thereof, whereby after tearing one or more tickets and covering strip portion and stripping said covering strip portion along said longitudinal perforations said indicia will be exposed.

2. A chance roll of tickets as recited in claim 1 wherein said holes comprise a single, centrally located hole along each of said lateral perforations between tickets, whereby after tearing the tickets along said lateral perforations resulting in severing the portion of the covering strip covering the central hole, such severed portion serves as a tab to assist in stripping said covering strip portion.

Claims (2)

1. A chance roll of tickets comprising a two-ply longitudinal strip, one ply comprising a strip of tickets detachably secured together by lateral perforations and holes, the other ply comprising a covering strip adhered to said strip of tickets only along the entire longitudinal edge portions, leaving an unadhered central panel portion, and covering the entire surface of said strip of tickets including said perforations and holes, said central panel portion bearing indicia in random sequence from ticket to ticket, longitudinal perforations on only said covering strip at the inner border of the adhered edges and extending along the entire length thereof, whereby after tearing one or more tickets and covering strip portion and stripping said covering strip portion along said longitudinal perforations said indicia will be exposed.
2. A chance roll of tickets as recited in claim 1 wherein said holes comprise a single, centrally located hole along each of said lateral perforations between tickets, whereby after tearing the tickets along said lateral perforations resulting in severing the portion of the covering strip covering the central hole, such severed portion serves as a tab to assist in stripping said covering strip portion.
