Abstract

In a gaming model, players may select virtual betting chips from an onscreen palette and apply those chips to various wagering opportunities throughout a game. Using this model, players are able to make individual bets on each of a slot machine's paylines or wager on making specific hands in video poker. Players are also able to buy and/or wager on symbol 'nudges' and to buy symbol 're-spins' within a multi-line slot machine.
