There are R reels in the machine, divided into N subsets of reels, each subset has r(n) reels, n between 1 and R-1,r(1) + r(2)..+ r(N) = R.
A wager on the first sub-set of reels is lost or won based on the resulting outcome of the spin of the first sub-set of r(1) reels. A wager on the second sub-set of r(2) reels is lost or won based on the resulting outcome combination of the spins of the first and second sub-sets of reels, r(1) + r(2).
The machine engages to spin the sub-set of r(n) reels if a pre-determined condition is met at the n-1 subspin , and if engaged, the sub-set of r(n) reels spin and the wager bet on the sub-set n is lost or won based on the resulting outcome combination of the spins of the first, second till the nth sub-set of reels, (r(1) + r(2)…r(n).

THE CONCEPT OF THE NEW SLOT / VIDEO MACHINE
- SINGLE SET OF REELS, DIVIDED INTO MULTIPLE SUBSETS OF REELS.
- SINGLE DISPLAY AND SINGLE SCREEN.
- MULTI-WAGER, EACH WAGER IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE ACTIVATION
AND THE SPIN OF ONE OF THE SUBSETS OF REELS.
- SINGLE SPIN BUTTON WHICH ROTATES AT LEAST ONE OF THE
SUBSETS OF REELS.
- THE SUB-SET OF r(n) REELS SPINS ONLY IF A PRE-DETERMINED CONDITION IS MET AT THE n-1 SUB-SPIN.
IF THE PRE-DETERMINED CONDITION IS NOT MET AT THE STAGE n-1, THEN ALL WAGERS PLACED FOR THE STAGE n AND HIGHER ARE CREDITED BACK TO THE PLAYER.
THE MACHINE ENGAGES TO SPIN THE SUB-SET OF r(n) REELS IF THE PRE- DETEMINED CONDITION IS MET AT THE SPIN OF r(n-1) REELS
* THE PLAYER HAS WON IN THE PREVIOUS r(n-1) SPIN
** THE PLAYER HAS LOST IN THE PREVIOUS r(n-1) SPIN
***THE PLAYER HAS A CHANCE TO WIN IN THE NEXT r(n) SPIN
