  • Patent number: 10825286
    Abstract: A gaming machine includes a cabinet defining an upper cabinet volume and a cabinet front opening to the upper cabinet volume. A video monitor is mounted on the gaming machine cabinet so that in an operating position, the video monitor registers with and covers an upper portion of a base area of a cabinet front opening. A panel is also mounted on the gaming machine cabinet so that in a panel operating position, the panel component registers with and covers a lower portion of the base area, that is, a portion of the base area immediately below the portion covered by the video monitor in its operating position. Assemblies are included which allow the video monitor to be moved to an open position vacating the base area of the cabinet front opening and allow the panel to traverse the vacated area to an open position for the panel.

  • Patent number: 10755519
    Abstract: A gaming machine includes a cabinet defining a cabinet volume with a front access opening. A display assembly having one or more display devices is mounted on the gaming machine cabinet through a translation frame and a display assembly translation structure. The translation frame is mounted in the cabinet so as to be moveable relative to the cabinet between a frame home position and a frame raised position. The display assembly translation structure connects the display assembly to the translation frame, and is operable to move between a retracted position in which the display assembly registers with part of the cabinet access opening and an extended position in which the display assembly is separated forwardly from the front access opening by at least a cabinet access distance.

  • Patent number: 9719662
    Abstract: A lighting apparatus includes a light source located on a centerline, a light redirecting lens positioned to receive light from the light source, and an outer reflector that receives light redirected by the redirecting lens. The redirecting lens includes an inner reflecting portion that includes a total internal reflection (TIR) surface that reflects light outward to an outer refracting portion. The outer refracting portion of the redirecting lens refracts the light outward and away from the position of the light source. The outer reflector receives the refracted light and reflects the inward toward the centerline and farther away from the light source. The lighting apparatus further includes a diffuser that diffuses the light from the outer reflector. The lighting apparatus may be configured longitudinally or may be configured to be rotationally symmetrical with respect to the centerline.
