1. An electronic game machine configured to conduct a plurality of game events, each game event capable of producing at least one game event outcome from a plurality of possible game event outcomes, comprising:
a logic controller;
a player interface in communication with said logic controller, wherein said player interface includes a hardware-based currency acceptor and said player interface is configured to receive input and transmit said input to said logic controller;
a display in communication with said logic controller; and
a data storage device configured to store in non-volatile memory a complete map containing a plurality of possible signals capable of being received at said logic controller correlated to all said possible game event outcomes and program instructions executable by said logic controller to conduct the steps of:
receiving currency credits through said currency acceptor of said player interface;
communicating between said currency acceptor and said logic controller to indicate receipt of said currency credits;
conducting a game event in response to at least (a) said receipt of a wager, deducted from said currency credits, through said player interface and (b) a signal received at said logic controller from said plurality of possible signals to produce a game event outcome, wherein said game event outcome is produced by selecting said game event outcome correlated to said signal received according to said complete map stored at said data storage device;
resolving said wager based on said at least one game event outcome produced;
modifying said complete map by making each said game event outcome produced unavailable from all said plurality of possible game event outcomes according to said complete map stored at said data storage device, wherein all said plurality of possible game event outcomes remain in said modified complete map;
receiving at least one additional wager after modifying said complete map stored at said data storage device;
conducting at least one additional game event to produce an additional game event outcome using said modified complete map; and
resolving said at least one additional wager based on said additional game event outcome produced using said modified complete map.
