  • Patent number: 10964168
    Abstract: An information processor and a program, with which a control program for providing various payout amounts as a result of random determination in a game is simplified, are provided. While a slot game is repeatedly executed, a payout amount awarded in response to the total points which is the sum total of the points corresponding to the number of “RED V” symbols rearranged in the symbol display area 21 and the points corresponding to the number of “BLUE V” symbols rearranged in the symbol display area 21 increases each time the “UP” symbol is rearranged in the symbol display area 21. As such, a payout amount which may be awarded is increased little by little, and hence various payout amounts are available.
