AbstractAmusement equipment relies on horses or other objects to traverse a course (tracks each 10, 11, 12) for each game and produce a winner. An electronic control unit (ECV) provides intermittent drive signals for such course traversal so that control over a first part of the course is by means (20) producing unpredictability, and control over a final part of the course is by means (21) that preselects the winner also on an unpredictable basis. Individual probabilities of winning can be imposed by stored information (28), particularly where payouts are made of corresponding odds via player stations (110) at desired positions. The player stations will receive control information via a data transmitter (115) and connection system (116).
