Abstract (en)

[origin: GB2338091A] Disclosed is a betting system comprising two or more linked computers. One or more satellite computers are configured to accept bets from users and are linked to at least one other computer (by a PSTN, internet connection etc.) which administers a draw and calculates prize values. The draw may be a lottery type tirage of randomly chosen numbers (e.g. 1 to 49) selected by an administrating computer using an electronic random number generator at periodic time intervals. The random number generator may be a hardware based white noise device linked to the second computer via a serial connector. Preferably the prizes are fixed multiples of the stake depending upon various selection criteria for the numbers chosen (such as the number of draws, accumulators etc.) The advantage is that the system allows betting with short time intervals between draws.
