Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2753861A1] The invention concerns a method and a system enabling gamesters (11) of a virtual casino to accede safely and rapidly, by means of a microphone (17) connected to a communication network (15), to the different games that the virtual casino (12) offers to its gamesters (11). The method comprises the following steps: the virtual casino provides each of its gamesters (11) with a card (10), formatted like a credit card, personalised by specific identifiers for each card and each gamester; said card (10) emits brief identifying sound signals (20), of the DTMF type, at least partly encrypted, varying with each operation, when it is actuated (14) by the gamester (11); said identifying sound signals are received by the microphone (17) and transmitted by the communication network (15) to the computer service (18) of the virtual casino; the transmitted signals and the identification data of the gamester and the card in the possession (23) of the computer service (18), are electronically processed (24) and compared (25) by the computer service (18) of the virtual casino, such that in the event of coincidence, the gamester (11) can immediately be put through to the services (30) which the virtual casino offers to the gamesters.
