AbstractA progressive system for a match number game. An ante coin acceptor is located near each played card on each player's station. A progressive coin acceptor is also located on each player station. A player places an ante bet or a progressive bet by placing coins in the ante and progressive coin acceptors. A controller controls the operation of the coin acceptors.The operator of the game causes the ante and progressive controllers connected to all ante and progressive acceptors to drop all sensed coins into a drop bucket, to activate verification light at each acceptor that the coin has been received and to lockout the coin acceptor to prevent future insertion of coins. The game is played by announcing randomly selective numbers from 1 to 30. At the beginning of the game, the first three randomly selected numbers called, if those three match on a given card and if the player has placed a progressive bet, the player wins the progressive jackpot.
