Abstract (en)

Subiect of present invention are method and related systems to implement playing, in telematic and automatic modality, for betting, gambling, lotto, lotteries and any other games of chance, in such a way that will allow the player to keep a paper document as proof of identification and certification of the game transaction he has performed. This paper document will be unique and not forgeable, so that the original player will be able to prove indisputably to have all the rights for prize claiming, in case of winning. The method proposed, in addition to the use of the various modalities for computerised telematic transactions, via phone or via PC, is focused on the use, with the aim of validating and identifying the performed game transaction, of the serial number of a banknote in legal circulation. Thus, the banknote will constitute the unique and certain certification of the performed game transaction for eventually claiming the prize, in case of winning. <IMAGE>
