II.1 Inspection (damage in transport)


1) 2) 3) Remove the shipping carton. Remove the material used to secure the machine components during transport (necessary only for some types of cabinet). Should any damages caused by transport have occurred on the exterior, report them immediately to the carrier and have them confirmed by the same.

II.2 Installation Instructions


It must be ensured that the machine is operated in an upright position.

ATTENTION
For installation, the animation display must be fixed to the floor by means of bolts or a base to avoid tilting! The terminals can be installed very close one beside the other. The minimum distance to a back wall or the like should be 10 cm. For Novo Multi-Roulette 8 Player Configurations please consider a maximum distance of 10 m between the Game Server and the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) to ensure failure-free transfers.

45M002P1UK-03

INFORMATION
An alteration of the lighting conditions after adjustment of the Reader Heads may cause an increased number of ball recognition failures.

II.3 Power Up
1) Before start check the line voltage. The machine has been designed to sustain 230 V +/- 10%, 50 Hz or 110 V +/- 10%, 60 Hz. Make sure that the line voltage corresponds to the voltage indicated on the machine. As the system is equipped with an earthing connection, it should be ensured that the mains supply is also equipped with an earthing connection. Plug in the mains plug correctly. Open the Top Large Door/Main Door. If the machine is equipped with a coin comparator, insert the reference coin in there. Fill the hopper and enter the amount in the audit system. Please see section IV.5.6 - Hopper refill. Turn the mains switch to the ON position (switching unit). Close the Top Large Door/Main Door. After a short self test the machine is ready for operation. Credits can be added and a new game can be started.

II.4 Safety Precautions


For operating safety and to avoid damage to the machine, read carefully and observe the following instructions. As the machine has to be opened for normal maintenance work, please ensure that the relevant staff are made aware of the following safety precautions. There are static-sensitive parts inside the machine which could be damaged by electric discharge. Ground yourself by touching a ground strap inside the machine to neutralise electric charges before replacing or performing maintenance work of inner parts.

DANGER
In case of emergency power off the machine The power cord must be disconnected from the electrical outlet! For machines with an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) you have to switch this off too! Unplugging the machine with wet hands can result in a risk of electric shock. If there is smoke or if there are unusual smells or sounds coming from the machine, unplug the unit from the electrical outlet immediately and for machines with a UPS power this off too. Contact qualified service personnel. Continued operation may be dangerous and can result in a risk of fire or electric shock. Do not open the cabinet by force There are potentially dangerous high voltage components inside. Opening the cabinet can result in a serious risk of fire hazard or electric shock. There are no user serviceable parts inside. Refer all service to qualified service personnel. Never insert objects into the cabinet ventilation openings Do not push any objects through cabinet ventilation slots as they may touch dangerous voltage points or cause short circuits that could result in a risk of fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind (coffee, wine, etc.) on the machine. If this happens accidentally, it may result in a risk of fire or electric shock. Unplug the unit and have it checked by qualified service personnel. Avoid damage to the wires Prevent mechanical strain, such as squeezing or stretching, on the power cord, wires and plug connections. Damaged wires can result in a risk of fire or short circuit. Keep the wires away from where people will walk on them or stumble and be injured.

The main components of the Novo Unity game platform include: Windows XP Embedded Novo Unity Server Game Server Game Manager Novobase Installed Game Novo Unity runs on the Windows XP Embedded operating system providing write protection to increase fail safe operation to a maximum level. The network consists of the Novo Unity Server, the Game Server(s), a DHCP server and several terminals. The Novo Unity Server enables the installation of software, generates the results of the game and statistics and is used to monitor parameter settings like language settings and minimum and maximum bet limits. The program of the terminals and Game Servers is called Game Manager. The Game Manager transfers data from the Novo Unity Server to the Game Server(s) and to the terminals and vice versa. Each terminal has an IP address in order to guarantee the identification of all terminals. Therefore the Novo Unity Server is able to transfer the right data to the right terminal/Game Server and to identify the terminal/Game Server that has sent data to the Novo Unity Server. The terminals/Game Servers receive the IP address from the DHCP server, which is part of the network. The DHCP or Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol is used to find a free address out of a list including several IP addresses. This enables a safe and reliable network communication. Each terminal/Game Server has a network card including a MAC (Media Access Control) address in order to enable the DHCP server to identify the terminals. The MAC address is clear and unique worldwide.

SYSTEM INFORMATION

After power up, the terminal goes through the following processes: Start of Windows XP Embedded Transfer of the MAC address from the terminal/Game Server to the DHCP server Transfer of the IP address from the DHCP server to the terminal/Game Server Start of Game Manager Transfer of MAC and IP addresses from the terminals/Game Servers to the Novo Unity Server Data transfer between Novo Unity Server and Game Manager For example: Installed Game (e.g. Novo Multi-Table Roulette) Group and terminal settings Game timing Parameter settings After receiving these data from the Novo Unity Server, the Game Manager loads the executable program Novobase and transfers these data to Novobase. Novobase activates the installed game to visualise the data received. Other games can be selected by just switching to the desired game. In addition, Novo Unity allows to present all games installed on it in statistical form (accounting, wins, player behaviour, etc.). As a database-based game platform, Novo Unity is universally expandable for future game developments.

The system supports a choice of different languages (e. g. English, German, French, Spanish, and so on). A multiplier function is available, allowing players to vary their bet amounts in consideration of the maximum bets limit (e. g. 1, 2, 10 or 1, 10, 100 etc.).

Cancelling bets: The CANCEL function can be used to clear the most recent bet placed. Other bets can be cancelled by simply pressing the respective number or betting option again. If the CANCEL function is selected again all bets will be cleared. Novo Multi-Roulette - game start: At the start of each game players are given a predetermined period of time to place their bets. The wheel lift motor rises and the ball of the previous game drops into the ball collecting channel under the Roulette wheel at the beginning of the Finish Betting or Place Your Bets game phase (depending on the set Wheel Game Mode in Novo Unity Server path Casino \ Multi Game \ Novo Multi-Table Roulette \ Parameters \ Server \ Novo Multi-Roulette). Subsequently the second ball rolls into the air-operated ball launching mechanism (slide), the wheel lift motor goes down and the Roulette wheel starts to spin. The ball is launched in the Finish Betting game phase. Novo Touchbet Live-Roulette - game start: At the start of each game players are given a predetermined period of time to place their bets. The dealer takes the ball of the previous game out of the Roulette wheel and changes the spin direction of the Roulette wheel to launch the ball again. When the circulation time of the ball exceeds an assigned value (approx. 2 rounds before the ball runs towards the centre), the betting time is concluded. Novo Flying-Roulette - game start: At the start of each game players are given a predetermined period of time to place their bets. After the beginning of the No More Bets game phase the virtual Roulette wheel changes the spin direction and the ball is launched. The ball remains in the pocket of the spinning Roulette wheel until the next ball launching. Completion of the game: The betting time of all Roulette games is concluded with the spoken announcement: NO MORE BETS THANK YOU and the subsequent locking of all betting functions on player terminals. After the ball settles into a pocket, the winning number will be announced by a spoken message. All winning areas are highlighted with a change of colour on the terminal screens and if present also on the Animation Display screen. A game is deemed completed when: - A winning number was not selected or - in the event of a win, the amount won is indicated by the win animation and subsequently incremented in the CREDIT display area. A new game can now start with new bets, or the same bets as for the previous game may be wagered by selecting the PREVIOUS BET function. The PAYOUT ODDS information screen displays the different odds for each wager option.

Because of the different sequence of numbers on Roulette wheels with American double zero, only Neighbour Bets and Finals are available. For Roulette wheels with French double zero the betting options 0 Game and Series 0/2/3 are not available, as it is not possible to place a split on 0/3 or a street on 0/2/3 because of the arrangement of these numbers on the layout.

INFORMATION
The advantage of the warning parameters (Wheel Games Analysed for Warning, Wheel Turns too Fast Warning, Wheel Turns too Slow Warning and Security First Pass Warning) is that the Game Server will not stop each game after recognizing a deviation. Wheel Games Analysed for Warning - This parameter is linked to the parameters Maximum and Minimum Wheel Turn Time, Security First Pass Time, as well as to the parameters Wheel Turns too Fast Warning, Wheel Turns too Slow Warning and Security First Pass Warning. It is used to set the number of games to be considered for the calculation of the frequency of all warning parameters (Wheel Turns too Fast, Wheel Turns too Slow and Security First Pass Warning). For example: The parameter Wheel Games Analysed For Warning is set to 10. The parameter Wheel Turns Too Fast Warning is set to 3. Under these settings the warning Wheel Turns Too Fast will appear after the Minimum Wheel Turn Time has not been reached 3 times in 10 games. The Game Server will stop the game until the confirmation of the warning. Wheel SPS Program Checksum - If a new PLC software is installed the checksum must be entered here for security reasons. Changes of the PLC software will only be made by the Technical Support of AGI.

45M002P1UK-03

ATTENTION
The minimum setting of the wheel turn timeout is not allowed to be under 120 seconds. If it is set under 120 seconds, this can cause errors during the game! Wheel Turn Timeout - This parameter will react, when the Game Server has been shut down and the PLC is still powered. After the set Wheel Turn Timeout the wheel will be stopped if the Game Server has been shut down.

TROUBLESHOOTING
If the Game Server very often displays messages regarding warning levels, it has to be checked, whether the NMB sensor is adjusted correctly and the ball launching mechanism works correctly. How often the warnings have occurred can be viewed in the log file of the Game Server.

Wheel Turns Too Fast Warning

- This parameter is linked to the parameters Minimum Wheel Turn Time and Wheel Games Analysed for Warning. It is used to define how often it is necessary that the Minimum Wheel Turn Time is not reached during a set number of games (Wheel Games Analysed For Warning) for the warning Wheel turns too fast to be displayed. For example: The parameter Wheel Games Analysed For Warning is set to 10. The parameter Wheel Turns Too Fast Warning is set to 3. Under these settings the warning Wheel turns too fast will appear, after the Minimum Wheel Turn Time has not been reached 3 times in 10 games. The Game Server will stop the game until the confirmation of the warning.

Wheel Turns Too Slow Warning

- This parameter is linked to the parameters Maximum Wheel Turn Time and Wheel Games Analysed for Warning. It is used to define how often the Maximum Wheel Turn Time must be exceeded during a set number of games (Wheel Games Analysed For Warning) for the warning Wheel turns too slow to be displayed. For example: The parameter Wheel Games Analysed For Warning is set to 10. The parameter Wheel Turns Too Slow Warning is set to 3. Under these settings the warning Wheel turns too slow will appear after the Maximum Wheel Turn Time has been exceeded 3 times in 10 games. The Game Server will stop the game until the confirmation of the warning.

ERROR HANDLING

INFORMATION
After each power-on the system performs a short autotest. After that, the device is ready for game-play. If this does not happen, the device must be checked for possible error sources as follows:

VII.1 Lack of Line Voltage


Two T3A15 (slow-blowing) single-pole fuses function as the primary protection of the power supply. These fuses are located at the front of the main switch. (Please see illustr. VII.2) The secondary protection T5A (slow-blowing) of the 12V voltage is located at the front of the main power supply. This voltage has been allocated a red light emitting diode, which glows only if the fuses are intact and if input voltage is present. (Please see illustr. VII.1) This voltage indicator is designed to facilitate service work providing some preliminary information. For more precise information on any incorrect operating voltages, measurements must be taken using appropriate instruments.

IX.3.8 Adjusting the WBA Bill Acceptor INFORMATION


These instructions are only valid for the bill acceptor WBA-25-SS2, because the adjustment of the bill acceptor UBA is more comprehensive. If an adjustment of the bill acceptor UBA is required, please contact our Technical Support (phone no. +43 2252 606-285). The adjustment of the sensors is intended to compensate any slight age-related cloudiness of the optical lenses (black and white adjustment) or any normal wear of the optical sensors. Therefore, the adjustment procedure described below should be carried out when required.

DIP switches

Illustr. IX.3.9 Acceptor unit 45M002P1UK-03 08 2006 AGI GmbH

NOTE
Please note that the adjustment is not a substitute for cleaning the sensor lenses! Therefore please clean the sensor lenses before each sensor adjustment. Follow carefully the below instructions when adjusting the WBA bill acceptor:

Description:
1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6)

7)

Release the connecting plugs from the WBA (e.g. by pulling out the acceptor unit). Make a note of the position of the dip switches! Set dip switches 8, 7, 6 and 5 to ON. Set dip switches 1, 2, 3 and 4 to OFF. Connect the WBA to the power supply, by inserting the acceptor unit in the acceptor frame. The emergency transport motor will first run forward approximately 2 seconds and then briefly reverse. Insert the reference paper KS-039 (item number: 40150146) with the black end in first. The WBA pulls the paper in automatically and moves it forwards and backwards several times. The autoadjustment is completed once the reference paper has been ejected and the transport motor has come to a halt. After that, the acceptor requires another approximately 2-3 seconds to write the data to the internal memory chip. Disconnect the acceptor unit from the power supply again and return the dip switches to their original position (normally OFF position).

IX.16.1 Barcode Reader


The barcode reader is connected to the cash desk PC via a serial interface. It is used to scan in tickets.

IX.16.2 Operation
To scan in a ticket approach it to the barcode reader starting at a distance of about 20 cm away from the reader. After the barcode has been detected and read the ticket is clearly identified by the proprietary cashdesk program specifically developed for this purpose. This program compares the 40-digit encrypted barcode (ticket number) with all tickets stored in the Novo Unity Server database and confirms it by sending a visual release signal (green bar with the corresponding payout amount).

IX.16.3 Cashdesk Program


This program verifies the authenticity of a ticket using the barcode reader. The cashdesk program is installed on a WINDOWS XP computer (or higher version) which is connected to the Novo Unity Server to enable data transfer. The ticket data are sent from the terminals to the Novo Unity Server PC, where they will be stored. After a ticket has been scanned with the barcode reader the cashdesk PC will compare the ticket data with those stored on the Novo Unity Server PC. If the data agree a copy of the ticket data will be made on the cashdesk PC and the payout will be released.

IX.16.4 Security
Paper: Special paper using ultraviolet imprint provides high counterfeit protection. The imprint glows when held under an UV lamp (e.g. device used to detect counterfeit bills). Barcode Reader: The barcode reader detects only 40-digit barcodes with Interleaved 2/5 Codes.

IX.19.2 Function
The UPS (uninterruptible power supply) allows the system to store data safely and shut down the current game in the event of a power failure. In addition, the UPS is capable of compensating power surges and power sags. If the line voltage does not comply with the requirements, the UPS will temporarily switch to battery operation.

IX.19.3 Troubleshooting
UPS is switching itself off: Internal error: Do not use the UPS. Switch off the UPS immediately and have it examined. All indicators light up, and the UPS emits a continuous warning signal: Internal error: Do not use the UPS. Switch off the UPS immediately and have it examined. Sensitivity of UPS to power variances is set too high: To reduce the sensitivity of the UPS press the configuration button on the backside control panel. (Press 1x for reduced, 2x for low and 3x for normal sensitivity). If the UPS sensitivity setting is normal, the configuration LED glows brightly, when set to reduced, the LED glows dimly and when set to low, the LED is off. (These settings are made upon installation of the system by AGI's Technical Support team.) The UPS charges its batteries when the device is connected to line voltage. The batteries are fully charged after the first 4 hours of normal operation time. During this initial charging period the UPS does not yet provide the full nominal capacity (bridgeover time). As a default setting, the UPS issues a warn signal to indicate low battery when the battery can ensure another 2 minutes of operation.

IX.20.2 Explanation
The modem facilitates the coordination of work between casino technicians and AGI's Technical Support team (employees of AGI) by providing a tool for both to view the desktop (the on-screen display of the program running on the terminal) at the same time. A remote program, NetSupport, allows the Technical Support to view software and hardware related technical problems from the point of view of the technician (game view).

IX.20.3 Function
The remote program runs on the server and on each terminal of the installation to support remote serviceability. Security: In the normal game operation, the system is operated off-line, that means that there is no physical connection (modem cable) between the gaming system and the world outside. In the event of an error, the casino technician connects the modem cable to an existing telephone socket (direct ISDN line or direct analogue line). Software security: A program version (Master) specially licensed for AGI, allows a remote log-on to the terminals (clients). The access is restricted exclusively to members of the Technical Support team of AGI. For security reasons, a protocol file is maintained at the Master registering every step that is performed on the terminal. This protocol file exists on each client and can be viewed by the authorised system administrator or casino technician. A comparison between the protocol file of the master and the protocol file of the client can be made at any time. Visual control: The authorised casino technician can observe every step performed on the server or the client.

IX.20.4 Troubleshooting
Check the connecting plug of the modem. In the event of any problems please contact the Technical Support of AGI.

Description of the normal wheel operation


- Lift motor (cone with centrepiece) rises. - The Roulette ball runs through drillings to drop into the ball collecting channel. - One ball rolls into the air-operated ball launching mechanism (slide). - Lift motor (cone with centrepiece) goes down. - Roulette wheel starts to spin. - The slide (ball launching mechanism) moves the ball into the respective launch position. - The fan is activated and spins the Roulette ball through the launching tube into the Roulette wheel. - The ball falls into a pocket. - The ball is detected by the pocket sensor. The position of the wheel is determined by the lower infrared sensors. The second laser sensor is designed to ensure increased security (e.g. it detects the ball if it comes to rest on the number ring of the wheel).

IX.23.7 Ball detection

Ball detection: (Move the wheel until number 0 is aligned in front of the sensor.) To adjust the Pocket sensor place the ball in the pocket centrally against the outer pocket wall separating the pocket from the number ring. Adjust the sensor so that the red dot is on the centre of the ball about 1 mm above the aluminium edge of the number ring (using the adjusting screw located on the outside of the sensor). The control LEDs of the sensor must glow yellow and green when the ball is hit in the centre by the laser beam. The sensor must be so adjusted that only the green LED is on when the ball is placed against the left or the right compartment divider within the pocket. The sensitivity of the sensor can be adjusted using the potentiometer located just behind the control LEDs. The sensitivity must be increased if the sensor cannot detect the ball accurately (the beam hits the ball in the centre --> LEDs glow red and yellow). If the detection area is too large the sensitivity must be decreased (yellow LED on the sensor does not go off when the ball is moved towards the left or the right side of the pocket).

08 2006 AGI GmbH

Page 497

HARDWARE

Number ring detection To adjust the No More Bets sensor, first place the Roulette ball in a pocket against the pocket's outer wall separating the pocket from the number ring. The laser beam should now be about 2-3 mm above the ball. The ball should not be detected by the number ring detection sensor when it is in a pocket. The laser beam should hit the ball only if it comes to rest outside the pocket. When the beam hits the ball lying between the border of the bowl and the number ring, the control LED must glow green.

Infrared sensors (located underneath the wheel attached to the Roulette bowl)

ATTENTION
When adjusting the infrared sensors, it is advisable to also check the laser sensor for ball-in-pocket detection, as described in the procedures below. The infrared sensors detect the black marks on the bottom side of the wheel. The inner sensor is responsible for the detection of the 0 position of the wheel. The outer sensor counts the narrow black marks (37 or 38) thus indicating the position of the wheel. The sensors are accurately adjusted if: 1) the black strips on the wheel run exactly through the centre of the outer sensor 2) both sensors are not activated at the same time (LED 6 and LED 7 on the PLC input side must not go off at the same time). For an accurate adjustment of the infrared sensors, first choose a number, then slowly move the wheel to the right until LED 6 on the PLC goes off. Mark this position (e.g. by using a pencil). Now slowly turn the wheel to the left until LED 6 on the PLC goes off. Mark the position and move the wheel to the centre position just in between the two positions you have marked. Hold the wheel steady so that it will not move, place the ball in the pocket on which the laser sensor for the ball detection is directed.

45M002P1UK-03

The laser sensor must be adjusted so that 1) it detects the ball if the ball is placed in about the centre of the pocket (LEDs glow green and yellow) and 2) it does not detect the ball any more if the ball is in the pocket and is moved to the left or to the right against the dividers of the pocket (one LED on the sensor glows green, yellow goes off).

The cameras used are Pulnix TMC6700 and Pulnix TMC6760. They are modern high-speed colour cameras with a 24-bit resolution and reach a high image repeat rate of 60 frames/s, which allows a nonflickering reproduction of moving objects (e.g. Roulette wheel). Programmable frame grabbers enable reprogramming of the entire grabber hardware. The system is carefully adjusted to the connected camera and enables the transmission of image data to be transmitted via a network. Please see illustrations in section II.9 Network Configuration.

IX.24.2 Screen-in-Screen System


The moving object is recorded by the camera, which is connected to an image capturing system. This system is located in the Game Server. The image data are recorded by the frame grabber, which transmits a section of the entire image to the Game Server and subsequently to clients (i.e. the terminals).
