GAME APPARATUS. APPLICATION FILED JUNE 5, 1907. 941,194. K Patented Nov.23',1909.





To all whom it may concern;

Be it known that I, BENJAMIN HAMILTON, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York city, in the county of New York and State of New York. have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Game Apparatus, of which the following is a specification.

The invention relates to improvements in game apparatus having particular reference to a game wherein a test of skill is required.

In the following is described in connec tion with the accompanying drawings one embodiment of the invention, the features thereof being more particularly pointed out hereinafter in the claim.

In the drawings Figure 1 is a longitudinal sectional view of the device; Fig. 2 is a plan view thereof, and Fig. 3 is an enlarged detail plan view of the roulette attachment.

Similar numerals of reference indicate similar parts throughout the several views.

1 indicates the body of a supporting table provided with a top or platform 2. 3 indicates an auxiliary support or table mounted on one end of table 1 and has preferably embodied therewith a bowling table 4 provided with a bottom 5, sides 6, and end 7. 8 is a beading or strip suitably fastened to the upper portion of bowling table 5 at the playing end of the apparatus and forms at that point a reception or holding compartment for balls 9.

10 indicates the foundation structure of a roulette wheel provided with the well-known compartments or receiving sections 11 and the numerical indicating disk 12. \oulette wheel 10 is mounted diagonally to the plane of bowling table l in standard 13 supported on the opposite end of supporting table 1. Said standard 13 has formed at its upper end a bearing 14 adapted to receive stud 16 preferably cast with the .under portion and centrally located on the under portion of roulette wheel 10. Said roulette wheel 10 has fastened on its under side a circumferential rack 17 adapted to normally rest on beveled gear 18 mounted on the inner end of drive shaft 19 of motor 20. 21 and 22 designate the wire leads which feed the motor 20 by either a direct or alternating current.

The bowling table 1 is considerably Wider at the playing end thereof than at the end registering with the edge of roulette wheel 10, the object of the same being to provide a space that will give a player of the game Specification of Letters Patent. Patented N 23 1909,

Application filed June 5, 1907.

Serial No. 377,347.

' sufficient room in which to gage the throw of the players ball. Roulette wheel 10 described above as being mounted in a diagonal position on supporting table 1 projects slightly under the inner end of the bowling table t and causes at that point at least a of the reception sections formed in said roulette wheel 10 to register with the mouth portion of said bowling table 4. The object of the part described above as registering with the mouth portion of bowling table 4: is to provide means whereby a person when playing the game has much more of a chance on his wager than as though a single reception section registered with that portion of the table. The balls 9 illustrated in Fig. 2 of the drawings show the position the same will assume or approximately assume when the game is being played.

The numerical disk on roulette wheel 10 consists of the usual combination of roulette numbers, that of the values ranging from 1 to 34 inclusive, together with a zero and double Zero permitting a player at all times to have more of a chance of receiving something for his play than in losing the entire wager. Said numerical disk may be of the well-known combination of colors such as red, white, black, etc.

The operation of the device is as follows. Power is transmitted through motor 20 to roulette wheel 10 which causes the same to rotate in a designated direction and continually operate during the progress of a party or number of parties playing the game. The operator stands at the closed end of the bowling table described as end 7 and takes one of the balls 9 in his hand such as the operator of a shuttle board would do and curves or rolls the same down the bowling table to the reception sections 11 in roulette wheel 10.

It is obvious that in playing a game of the character as above described a party or parties are compelled to use an unusual amount of skill and dexterity in gaging the balls so that when rolled down the bowling table they will fall into a designated reception compartment in the roulette or partitioned wheel; that is, the compartment having the highest numerical value. It is also obvious that in playing the said game the operator will have to use his eye in gaging his play to a considerable extent.

It is further obvious that the device as herein shown and described may be widely into said receiving sections, a numerical disk associated with said wheel, and means for revolving said wheel.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto signed my name in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
