Abstract  available in

  1. We claim the ornamental design for an “inclined input interface for a gaming terminal,” as shown and described.

FIG. 1 is a left isometric view of a gaming machine.

FIG. 2 is an enlarged view of an inclined input interface area of the gaming machine shown in FIG. 1.

FIG. 3 is a right isometric view of the gaming machine shown in FIG. 1.

FIG. 4 is a front view of the gaming machine shown in FIG. 1.

FIG. 5 is a top view of the gaming machine shown in FIG. 1.

FIG. 6 is a right side view of the gaming machine shown in FIG. 1.

FIG. 7 is a left side view of the gaming machine shown in FIG. 1; and,

FIG. 8 is a front cross-sectional view along lines “8-8” shown in FIG. 5.

The broken lines shown in dashed form are only for illustrative purposes to show visible environmental structure and form no part of the claimed design.

The boundary lines shown in dot-dash form do not exist in reality in the gaming machine embodying the design and are only for illustrative purposes to show bounds of the claimed design. It is understood that the claimed design extends to the boundary but does not include the boundary.

The front cross-sectional view of FIG. 8 is a mirror image of the cross-sectional view along the cross-sectional line, and is included to clarify an exterior shape of the claimed design.
