how to make slot machine cheating devices

As long as the handle 34 or button 52 is held in the down position, hopper 42 disgorges its' contents via disk 68 thru channel 72 and dispenser chute 32 , then out the payout tray There may also exist other means of gaining access to reset switch {/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Referring now to the drawings, wherein like reference numerals indicate the same parts throughout the several views, a preferred embodiment of the inventive anti-cheating device is incorporated into a slot machine [] 20 as shown in FIG. An experienced thief can easily carry and use such tools with little risk of detection. The evolution of cheating devices has, thus far, kept pace with the evolution of gaming machines. Restated, this is a self-contained localized alarm system. While these devices perform satisfactorily to prevent tampering in limited areas, they are wholly ineffective in discouraging cheating by the sophisticated thief, using refined techniques and specially made cheating tools. It is further an object of the present invention to provide a means of close proximity protection for the system reset button. The combination of the internal door sensor showing open, along with insertion of the tool through the newly formed gap, creates a fatal flaw in the system, whereby one is then able to gain access to the reset button and put the machine into the hopper test mode, which could then dispense all of the contents of the coin hopper as long as the spin reel or handle is held down. Sensing may automatically disable the machine through the machine tilt detection system. A cursory understanding of alarm systems for coin operated gaming systems may be helpful in better defining the invention described herein. In addition, with the advent of the web, it is known that numerous underground web sites exist that share various coin operated cheating techniques, thus information previously known only by a few, can now be disseminated and used by many. Over the past several years, gaming machine manufacturers have replaced the vast majority of mechanical components employed in such machines with electronic circuitry. For example, modern slot machines include a coin comparator, which compares the magnetic signature of an inserted coin against the signature of a reference coin. This tilt approach may also be used with any of the other embodiments described herein. In another preferred embodiment, the anti-cheating device detects or all together blocks the presence of a cheating tool inserted through the door gap by providing a sensing system e. Upon pulling the handle, the circuitry on circuit board assembly 44 determines where reels 36 a - c should stop, enables power to reel motors 60 a - c , and then one-by-one stops reels 36 a - c at the predetermined position after a predetermined period of time. It is known that slot cheats have also devised ways to access the relocated reset position, some of which are detailed below. Before explaining the present invention in detail, it is important to understand that the invention is not limited in its application to the details of the construction illustrated and the steps described herein. For example, it is known that a tool may be formed from a thin elongated wire, which may be inserted in a gap crack created when a would-be thief slightly raises the door of a slot machine e. The slot cheat may first disable the visual alarm indicator 88 e. It should be appreciated by those skilled in the art that the conception and specific embodiment disclosed may be readily utilized as a basis for modifying or designing other structures for carrying out the same purposes of the present invention. Field of the Invention []. If a coin does not properly break the beams e. Such an approach may allow the cheat or unscrupulous casino worker to then open the door and quickly set the machine into the aforementioned hopper test mode. In another example of sophisticated cheating, a tool e. More particularly, but not by way of limitation, the present invention relates to an anti-cheating device for a slot machine, or the like, which detects or prevents unauthorized access to the system reset mechanism. One such way is to place an opaque, but matching, candle cover over the existing candle. It is still a further object of the present invention to provide an anti-cheating device for a gaming machine, which may be easily incorporated into a new or existing machine. Cheating tools tend to be relatively small and often formed mainly from simple metallic or transparent materials. It is to be understood that the phraseology and terminology employed herein is for the purpose of description and not of limitation. Such a cheating approach can rapidly accumulate hundreds, or even thousands of dollars from the machine. System [] 2 The secondary alarm system typically consisting of the following: A customer e. Shaft encoders not shown are in rotational communication with reels 36 a - c and produce a signal received by circuit board assembly 44 whereby each reel 36 a - c can be precisely stopped to display the portion of each reel 36 a - c through windows 38 a - c , respectively, as determined by circuit board assembly If circuit board assembly 44 calls for a jackpot, reels 36 a - c are stopped to correspond to a pay-out as indicated in the jackpot information 28 and the appropriate number of credits are displayed in window 64 on door It should be noted that electronic circuit board assembly 44 typically has a metallic enclosure to reduce radio frequency RF interference. Techniques and devices were developed for tampering with purely mechanical slot machines. This device provides three LED's, which emit light across a coin path to three detectors. This reset button is usually located on the system's circuit board with may be surrounded by an encasement , inside the gaming machine itself. Preferably, slot machine 20 comprises: an outer enclosure 22 having a door 24 ; a top portion 26 whereon is displayed jackpot information 28 , a coin tray 30 located beneath chute 32 FIG. After a coin has been successfully compared, it falls through the coin path, sequentially disrupting the light striking the detectors. Such devices handle large quantities of coins, and are prone to jamming, and as such, require frequent testing to insure optimum performance. Thus, the successful insertion of such a device may be prevented by combining the normally independent central alarm system, with the more sensitive local alarm door sensor, so as to immediately notify the appropriate authorities of an attempted incursion, or alternatively, providing a protective guard cover for the system reset mechanism, while the machine door is closed. Even though they've been arrested, they haven't been prosecuted because conspiracy is difficult to prove. The foregoing has outlined rather broadly the features and technical advantages of the present invention in order that the detailed description of the invention that follows may be better understood. The maintenance person then proceeds to push the spin reel button, or pull down on the handle, at which time the machine if the button or handle is still held down will continuously dispense coins from the hopper, so as to test its functionality. As a result, a need exists in the art for a method and apparatus that provides a much higher level of system security. The present invention provides an anti-cheating device for a gaming machine that satisfies the needs and alleviates the problems mentioned above. Gaming machines such as slot machines, draw poker machines, bingo machines, and the like are prevalent in casinos around the world. Most such gaming devices when in actual use have two separate and fully independent alarm systems. In a first preferred embodiment, an assembly links a more sensitive local alarm system across to an independent central alarm system. Such tools are typically inserted either through existing holes or through the gaps that are created e. It should be noted that there exists millions of machines in the world today, that are venerable to such a cheating approach noted above, and to make matters worse, these same machines have their system reset switches placed directly adjacent to the venerable door seam. Such devices are effective in preventing a person from using counterfeit coins or slugs. Since the primary local door alarm sensor e. Tripping the central alarm switch, by opening the door, for example, would thereby trigger the central security system, and typically focus all available cameras and eyes on the offending machine e. To operate the machine, a user typically begins by dropping coins or tokens in coin slot [] A reference coin FIG. Because candle 88 may be covered or otherwise disabled , there is no indication elsewhere to the contrary. The central contact door switch is unaffected by this slight shift of the door. For example, a generation of gaming machines employed mechanical devices to time the reels but used electronic circuitry to pay-out coins. Referring to FIG. Such machines deal primarily in cash, tend to accumulate rather large sums of cash before collections are made, and, since all of the money is not removed from a machine in service, theft is difficult to detect. The present invention is illustrated by way of example and not by way of limitation in the figures of the accompanying drawings in which references indicate similar elements and in which: []. Recently, some manufacturers have relocated the reset switch away from the door seam. Programmable circuits, especially microprocessor devices, have allowed manufacturers to incorporate a number of anti-cheating devices and methods that deter such cheating. Since money is always left in the machine and hidden from view in an opaque coin bin , the actual theft can easily go undetected. While only disclosing enough of the mechanics of defeating the existing anti-cheating devices, so as to properly explain the invention described herein, it has been demonstrated that such a shift in the door is only detected by the local door alarm sensor, thereby turning on visual alarm e. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}An anti-cheating device for a gaming machine, which prevents or detects the insertion of a cheating device through a hole or seam. Continuing with FIG. This is critical to a thief because tripping the central alarm would typically trigger the security system to focus all available cameras, and eyes on the offending machine. As gaming machine manufacturers replaced mechanical assemblies with electronic alternatives, cheating devices were developed to cheat these machines as well. Accordingly, the arrangement of the circuits and components have been illustrated in the drawings by readily understandable block and wiring diagrams, which show only those specific details that are pertinent to the present invention, so as not to obscure the disclosure with structural details which will be readily apparent to those skilled in the art having the benefit of the description herein. Heretofore, a barrier has essentially existed to increase the security on millions of existing gaming machines to counteract today's more sophisticated thieves. In an Associated Press article dated Nov. If a jackpot is indicated, circuit board assembly 44 adds the appropriate number of credits to the number displayed in window If credits are shown, the user may use credits in lieu of coins by pressing button 54 on door 24 or may play three credits and activate a play by pressing button In addition, the user may initiate a play by pressing button 52 rather than pulling handle It is known that slot cheats have created gaps, e. Background of the Invention []. Thus, the diagram illustrations of the Figures do not necessarily represent all of the structural arrangements of the exemplary system, but are primarily intended to illustrate the major structural components of the system in a convenient functional grouping, whereby the present invention may be more readily understood. It should also be observed that the present invention resides primarily in what is effectively a novel combination of anti-cheating components, and not in the particular detailed configurations thereof. While the preferred embodiment of the inventive device is hereinafter shown and described as being incorporated in a slot machine, it should be understood that the invention is not so limited and is applicable to all gaming machines and, in fact, aspects of the invention are applicable to many types of coin operated devices. It should also be realized by those skilled in the art that such equivalent constructions do not depart from the spirit and scope of the invention as set forth in the appended claims. A further example of an existing anti-tampering device is the optical coin counter used in the majority of modem slot machines. The central door alarm switch 84 e. The present invention relates to anti-cheating devices for gaming machines. Thus, these machines are prime targets for tampering. Additional features and advantages of the invention will be described hereinafter, which form the subject of the claims of the invention. The dual alarm approach used by many casinos is outlined as follows: []. In another preferred embodiment, a protective guard prevents access to the system reset mechanism by an elongated cheating device, thereby preventing manipulation of the reset button. The components of door sensor itself are typically placed: one on the door itself e. While a given cheating tool may only be usable on a specific model of gaming machine, modifications may be made to create a similar tampering device for all known gaming machines. Thus, a thief armed with a relatively small assortment of tools can quickly cheat an array of machines, taking substantial amounts of cash in a relatively short period of time. In a preferred embodiment, the anti-cheating device prevents or detects the insertion of a cheating device through a gap in a gaming machine. It is thus an object of the present invention to provide an anti-cheating device that prevents or detects the insertion of a cheating device through a hole or seam gap of a gaming machine. The invention is capable of other embodiments and of being practiced or carried out in a variety of ways. Thus, a thief will again be able to disgorge the contents of the machine. These laboratories may be outfitted with the exact same machines that casinos have, which in-fact are readily available thru gaming device dealers e.
