Abstract

This invention relates generally to a strip of chance tickets and method of making the same, which ticket strip comprises an elongated composite or double layered strip which may be wrapped in roll form. The composite strip comprises a base and a cover strip whose longitudinal edges are coated with adhesive material. The central portion of the ticket is stamped with numbers at random, such as by an Addressograph machine. The top or cover 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 panel portion of the top strip can be detached so that the numbers of the bottom strip will be exposed. A base sheet is formed having longitudinal strips integrally secured along their side edges with transverse perforations and relatively large holes between tickets. The random numbers are then stamped thereon. The covering sheet is longitudinally perforated and adhered to the base sheet. Finally, the adhered covering sheet and base sheet are longitudinally slit into separate ticket strips which are wrapped into roll form.

METHOD OF MAKING STRIPS OF CHANCE TICKETS This invention is a continuation-in-part of application Ser. No. 878,285, filed Nov. 20, 1969, and now abandoned, andof Ser. No. 213,845, filed Dec. 29, 1971, and 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 satisfactorysince 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 method of making a strip of novel chance tickets 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 perspective view of a fragmentary portion of a ticket strip embodying the present invention, with the central panel of the cover strip shown partially detached from the bottom strip;

FIG. 2 is a schematic view of apparatus for carrying out the method of the present invention for making the tickets illustrated in FIG. I; and,

FIG. 3 is a perspective view showing successive forms taken by the ticket strip after each operation of the method.

Referring more particularly to the drawing, a supply roll 20 (FIG. 2) dispenses a double layered strip 20a comprising a top or cover strip 21 (FIG. 3) lightly adhered to a bottom or carrier strip 22, preferably of plastic material. The strips 21, 22 are passed, as a unit, through frictional guiding blocks 20b, thence to a printer roll 23, comprising a central drive roll 23, an end stamping roll 23a which prints the words open here" repeatedly along four longitudinal rows (see FIG. 3) and another end roll 23c for removing the excess paint. Thence, by a perforator wheel 24, only the top strip 21 is perforated along two edges 8 (see FIG. 1),-- that is, the perforator wheel 24 extends only through the top layer 21 and not through the bottom layer 22, at least not through any substantial portion thereof.

Thereafter, the carrier or base layer 22 is rewound on the roll 22a while the printed top layer 21 moves longitudinally until it joins a printed ticket strip 25 comprising essentially four integral ticket rolls, sideby-side (see FIG. 3), having four lateral holes 10, each separating each ticket from a longitudinally adjoining ticket for each of the four rolls or strips of tickets to be ultimately formed. The top strip 21 is superimposed and adhered onto the bottom or ticket strip 25 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 of the top strip.

The perforating wheel 24 will effect perforations along the inner borders of the coating 9, so that upon picking up one end of the central portion 5 of the top strip 21 and pulling, the central portion 5 will tear along the perforations 8 so as to expose the numbers 14 concealed underneath thereof, as shown in FIG. 1.

The various strip base portions 25, while integrally secured together along their sides as shown in FIG. 3, 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 nonnumerical manner but whose arrangement of Addressograph plates can be noted and recorded by authorized persons.

After the lower ticket strip 25 is joined to the upper imprinted cover strip 21, the two, in combination, are passed through a plurality of cutter knives 26 (three being shown) to subdivide the double layered strip 21, 25 into four separate ticket strips, as indicated in the upper right portion of FIG. 3.

The four separate finished ticket strips are then rewound into rolls 2 on a rewinding roll 1 so that the cover strip 21 is innermost.

Thus, in order to tear off one or more tickets, of the construction shown in FIG. 1, from the roll, it is necessary merely to lift the end of cover strip 5 by lifting the thumb through the cut-out portion 10 and pulling the central portion 5 thereof longitudinally so as to tear the edges thereof along perforations 8, in the manner shown in FIG. 1. This will expose the covered numbers, such as number 71A, or any other designation or symbol, which may or may not be a prize winner,or it may be left blank to indicate a loser.

An outstanding advantage of the construction shown in FIG. 1 is that individual tickets may be easily and quickly torn solely by virtue of the hole 10 and transverse crease 4, extending laterally between each ticket, which serves as a guide to enable also the uncreased top or cover strip 21 to be torn simultaneously along crease 4 to effect complete tear off of the ticket or tickets.

In short, the perforations 8 and the cut-out l0 greatly facilitate upward lifting of the top or cover layer 21, stripping along the perforations 8 and, finally, removal of the central panel 5 of the cover strip 21 to expose the numbers on the ticket.

Another outstanding advantage is that of having the central portion of the strip tear along the entire length of each ticket, instead ofa portion only of such length, since 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 for stamping numbers in random sequence, 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 l 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 in my invention and within the scope of the following claims.

l claim:

1. The method of making chance tickets in strip form, comprising forming a base sheet comprising a plurality of longitudinal strip base portions integrally secured together along their side edges and having transverse perforations and relatively large holes between tickets to provide semi-circular cut-outs on longitudinal adjoining tickets, imprinting random numbers along the longitudinal central portions of said strip base portions, perforating a separate corresponding covering sheet inwardly of the longitudinal edges of covering strip portions, corresponding to the strip base portions, along continuous lines on both sides of the centers of said covering strip portions while said covering sheet is lightly adhered to a carrier strip, thereafter removing said carrier strip and adhering the perforated covering strip portions only along the longitudinal edges of said base strip portions so as to cover, without adherence, said longitudinal central portions, said transverse perforations and said relatively large holes, and finally slitting the various longitudinal strip base portions and adhered corresponding covering strip portions through their longitudinal edges into separate ticket strips and wrapping said strips in roll form.
