STATEMENT REGARDING FEDERALLY SPONSORED RESEARCH OR DEVELOPMENT

[0003] This invention has been created without the sponsorship or funding of any federally sponsored research or development program.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0004] Improvement of glove and method disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 5,659,899 which patent is hereby incorporated by reference.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0005] A new and more convenient feature is the Slot Card Cord Runnerâ„¢ brand slidable or shiftable connection for a bonus card cord.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

[0006] FIG. 1 shows the cord on the right, stopped by the stopper-coil;

[0007] FIG. 2 shows the cord in the middle;

[0008] FIG. 3 shows the cord on the left;

[0009] FIG. 4 emphasizes the stopper-coil; and

[0010] FIG. 5 shows a bonus card connected to the cord;

[0011] FIG. 6 shows an integral runner; and

[0012] FIG. 7 shows discrete connecting elements.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0013] This device 10 can be made of elastic or any like material. It has two enlargements, such as stopper-coils 11,12 to help keep your Slot Machine Cord bonus card 13 in place after you slide your bonus card, e.g., from the right side to the left side. This runner is attached to the outside palm side of the glove 14 near the wrist area. The runner can be sewn to the glove body; or snaps, velcro, or like hardware can be used. This feature enables the slot machine player to run the cord 15 from side to side without having to unhook the bonus card cord from the slot machine glove, and thus enables smooth play.

[0014] In another aspect, the invention provides two or more discrete connection locations, such as discrete loops 16, 17.

[0015] This new device has been added because new technology has resulted in rearrangement of the positions where the slot machine bonus cord holder is placed. Some holders are on the far right, some in the middle, and some others to the far left.
