  • Publication number: 20200265682
    Abstract: A gaming machine includes a processor and a presentation device coupled to the processor. The processor is programmed to determine that a free play trigger condition is satisfied, and to execute one or more free plays based on the free play trigger condition to create one or more free play outcomes. Each free play outcome is a winning free play outcome or a non-winning free play outcome. The presentation device is configured to present winning free play outcomes when at least one free play outcome is a winning free play outcome. Non-winning free play outcomes are not presented.
    Type: Application

  • Patent number: 6477095
    Abstract: A method according to the present invention is provided for determining memory device identification. The method invokes a serial output from n identification fuses of two or more memory devices, the output for identifying the device, and sampling the serial output every nth bit to determine a fuse state for a fuse of each device. The method further repeats the sampling for all n fuses to acquire fuse data for all devices, and determines a pass/fail string corresponding to the sampled output, the pass/fail string being employed to identify the devices through a parallel test and burn-in system. The output is on an enabled data line which is used during the burn-in test wherein other data lines are disabled for avoiding bus contention. The method also includes storing the pass/fail string for the data in a database, and translating the pass/fail string using a structured query language expression executed against the database.
