A method and device for automated, repetitive play of a gaming device, such as a slot machine. A player enters player identifying information and player parameter selections at a gaming device. The gaming device stores the player parameter selections and proceeds to initiate automated play of the gaming device. Such automated play occurs while the gaming device is unattended by the player, while a remote communications device, such as a pager, transmits certain results to the player. Furthermore, no other player may use the gaming device during such automated play. The automated play session ends upon occurrence of a limiting criterion such as the expiration of funds, or upon the manual termination of the automated play session by an external action.
