Abstract (en)

The device positions the symbol display device (5) so as to be able to move vertically on the door element (4) of the housing of the games machine (1). The symbol display device can be moved by a control drive actuated by an auxiliary force. The symbol display device can be pivoted away from the vertical on a vertically movable holder and can contain two flat screens.

Abstract (de)

Vorrichtung zum Positionieren einer Symbolanzeigevorrichtung (5) auf einem Türelement (4) eines Gehäuses eines münzbetätigten Unterhaltungsautomaten (1). Die Symbolanzeigevorrichtung am münzbetätigten Unterhaltungsautomaten, die als TV-Monitor oder als walzenförmiger Umlaufkörper ausgebildet ist, weist auf der Frontseite eine feste Position auf mit dem Nachteil, daß nicht für jeden Benutzer des münzbetätigten Unterhaltungsautomaten stets eine streulichtfreie Betrachtung der Symbolanzeigevorrichtung möglich ist. Dieser Nachteil soll mit der Neuerung beseitigt werden. Zur Erzielung einer reflektionsfreien Betrachtungsweise der Symbolanzeigevorrichtung ist diese auf der Frontseite des Gehäuses des münzbetätigten Unterhaltungsautomaten vertikal verschiebbar angeordnet. <IMAGE>
