Abstract

The present invention contemplates a slot machine with a card payment system. The slot machine may have a payment system adapted for use with a credit card or debit card such that a customer may use a credit card or debit card to pay for his/her chances to play. The present invention also contemplates a machine that dispenses state lottery tickets or 'scratch off' state lottery cards which may incorporate card technology, see figure 5A. In some venues, these gaming machines may have to be activated by a venue employee after viewing proof of the age of the customer. Further, the gaming machines may allow multiple chances to play per payment.
